Most Voters Want to Send Latest Illegal Immigrants Home ASAP
Thursday, July 17, 2014
Most voters don’t want any of the young illegal immigrants who’ve recently arrived here housed in their state and say any legislation passed by Congress to deal with the problem should focus on sending them home as soon as possible.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the primary focus of any new immigration legislation passed by Congress should be to send the young illegal immigrants back home as quickly as possible.
Just 27% say it should focus instead on making it easier for these illegal immigrants to remain in the United States. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.
Advocates for the illegal immigrants argue that they are flooding into the country to escape violent situations in their home countries, but just 31% of U.S. voters think they are coming here now for their own safety.
Most voters (52%) believe they are coming here for economic reasons. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who last week criticized efforts to deport these illegal immigrants, is now reportedly the latest governor to tell the White House not to house any of them in his state.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters disapprove of housing these illegal immigrants in their state. Only half as many (29%) approve, while 14% are undecided.

Unintended consequences: 2008 anti-trafficking law contributes to border crisis
-- It was a good idea back in 2008, in the final days of the Bush administration.
With almost no opposition, Congress passed a new law to protect immigrant children in 2008 from sex traffickers trying to bring them to the United States. It required judges to hold hearings for youngsters from countries other than neighboring Mexico and Canada, preventing them from possibly getting turned away at the border.
More than five years later, though, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Action Act is having unintended consequences. It contributes to the surge of child migrants from Central America overwhelming the U.S. immigration system.
Now some in Congress want to change the law -- a possibility that could bring more unintended consequences
Thanks GW !

It takes a Christian to turn their backs on starving children and force them back into a life of suffering, poverty and an eventual violent death.

Obama isn’t doing his job. He’s waiting for history to recognize his greatness.
July 4, 2014
Barack Obama doesn’t seem to care about his unpopularity, or the decisions he’s made that have not turned out well. He doesn’t seem concerned.
A guess at the reason: He thinks he is right about his essential policies. He is steering the world toward not relying on America. He is steering America toward greater dependence on and allegiance to government. He is creating a more federally controlled, Washington-centric nation that is run and organized by progressives.
He thinks he’s done his work, set America on a leftward course, and though his poll numbers are down now, history will look back on him and see him as heroic, realistic, using his phone and pen each day in spite of unprecedented resistance.
He is Lincoln, scorned in his time but loved by history.
He thinks he is in line with the arc of history, that America, for all its stops and starts, for all the recent Supreme Court rulings, has embarked in the long term on governmental and cultural progressivism.
Thus in time history will have the wisdom to look back and see him for what he really was: the great one who took every sling and arrow, who endured rising unpopularity, the first black president and the only one made to suffer like this.
That’s what he’s doing by running out the clock: He’s waiting for history to get its act together and see his true size.

and how many of those poor starving children did you take in? None you say? Why am I not surprised? Only a liberal would use starving children to promote their political agenda.

I thought the tea baggers were all holy rollers you'd think they'd all take those children of God.
Keep going to church to show off your new jeans and sneakers LOL!
#58108 Jul 19, 2014
The tea baggers don't believe in abortion but they want to sent all the children back to their country to be starved and killed...YUP!
Don't abort a child at birth , wait until they are 6-7-8 years old them ship them back to the jaws of death!
Better brush up on the Bible to see what Jesus says about those kids,and ALL kids

Monday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry ® announced he is deploying 1,000 Texas National Guard to the U.S. border with Mexico, saying he can not idly sit by while "our citizens are under siege." Pointing out the tens of thousands pf unaccompanied minors only make up roughly 20 percent of those being apprehended illegally crossing the border, Perry said he can no longer wait for the president to act as gang members and drug cartels flood into Texas, causing crime to skyrocket. Perry pointed out Texas tax payers can not bear the expense of processing and housing the surge of illegal immigration caused by President Obama's 2012 executive action "Dream Act" which has given people in Central America the idea children will be allowed to stay once in the U.S. Perry has repeatedly called on President Obama to visit the border, calling his refusal Obama’s “Katrina,” moment

A typical liberal response. When faced with facts start the bashing game and or change the subject. You my young punk care nothing for those children, you only care about receiving your monthly welfare check. You are a true liberal at heart.

Obama gets blame, but GW Bush's 2008 bill set procedures for dealing with young illegal immigrants .
Procedures for helping young unaccompanied illegal immigrants are based in part on legislation approved by Congress in 2008, yet some lawmakers who did not object to the measure then are against the procedures now.
Gov. Mary Fallin and Rep. Tom Cole, R-Moore, were members of the U.S. House when the bill passed without objection.
The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 also passed the U.S. Senate by unanimous consent and was signed into law by President George W. Bush.
The act was mainly intended to help human trafficking victims, but one part had provisions for unaccompanied illegal immigrants under age 18.
The legislation said they must “be promptly placed in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child.” The U.S. Health and Human Services Department is to provide for their custody and care while deportation hearings are under way. The department is to attempt to find a parent or a sponsor in the United States while providing free legal representation and a child advocate.

Just like Iraq, immigration crisis has roots in GOP leadership
For all the bluster and blame-throwing by conservatives asserting that the Obama administration is responsible for the current immigration crisis, the roots of the problem are in a law passed in 2008 when President George W. Bush was in charge. As today’s New York Times notes, the Bush administration signed into law a measure designed to cut down on child sex trafficking.
The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 required certain judicial procedures to protect the rights of immigrant minors to prevent them from being deported back into the hands of individuals who were exploiting them in their home countries. It was a well-meaning, compassionate measure that focused on protecting kids from countries that don’t share a border with the United States, which means every country but Mexico and Canada. But the effect of the law was to enable unaccompanied, unauthorized immigrant minors to remain in the United States while their cases worked their way through the immigration court system. Because word got back to Central American countries that you can game the U.S. system, a flood of unaccompanied minors developed
I’ve read lots of angry blog postings from conservatives asking why the Obama administration can’t just stop them at the border, or spank them and ship ‘em back to Mexico. Well, it’s never been that easy. First of all, U.S. border patrol officers can’t apprehend anyone until they’ve crossed into the United States. Once they set foot on U.S. territory, they are protected by the law, which mandates a lengthy judicial review to ensure their rights are protected. And many of those rights are enshrined in the law that Bush signed in 2008, and they are, today, the very measures that are blocking the Obama administration from taking more concerted action to

An Obama-Caused Border Disaster
July 19, 2014
Make no mistake, the president has instigated the present influx of illegal aliens.
It is a grave error to view the swarming of illegal aliens across our southern border as anything other than a challenge to our sovereignty — a challenge abetted, rather than repulsed, by a president who vows to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”
The president has spent nearly six years giving effective legal immunity to millions of illegal aliens already here. His administration, meanwhile, hooks them on the government gravy train and fights state efforts to detain them, deny social services to them, and prevent them from fraudulently voting. Under those circumstances, the rolling out of a federal red carpet for teeming masses of illegal aliens must be understood as intentional.
Make no mistake: President Obama has instigated this crisis — a two-fer that advances the project of remaking the country while crowding the IRS, the VA, Benghazi, Bergdahl, the Taliban, ISIS, Hamas, the EPA, Obamacare, Ukraine, and other debacles out of the public’s finite attention span.
The invasion was invited by a systematic campaign to gut the immigration laws.

Texas State Senator: 100,000 Illegal Immigrant Gang Members in State
21 Jul 2014
Hours before Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced he would send National Guard troops to the border, Texas state Senator Dan Patrick said there are at least 100,000 illegal immigrant gang members in the state.
On Monday's The Laura Ingraham Show, Patrick, who is also the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said from 2008 to 2012, 143,000 illegal immigrant criminals were arrested and jailed in Texas. He said these were "hardened criminals, gang members, and other criminals that we identified as being in Texas illegally."
"We charged them with 447,000 crimes, a half-million crimes in four years, just in Texas, including over 5,000 rapes and 2,000 murders," Patrick said. "We estimate we have 100,000 gang members here illegally."
Patrick also observed during his trips to the border and detention centers that many of the "young children" are teenagers and with parents and family members. He said there is a concern that some are "gang members" and that potential terrorists can exploit the porous border.
