The bill was introduced 7/15/2014 as S 2611 and has been Read twice and referred to the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. As of 7/16 there has been no summary and the text is not yet available but will be, eventually at https://beta.congress.gov/legislation . All three co-sposnors are Republican.

Remember the words of Doug "Never give an order that can't be obeyed."

Maybe, if their family happen to be drug lords.
So many people have lost their ability to care. Is it something in the atmosphere? We may have global warming on the outside, but global numbing on the inside.

hahaha, since they didn't succeed they will try again, and again etc. except next time(s) they will not turn themselves in to the Border Patrol. Who knows maybe they will 'pay' for the trip by bringing a load of 'dope'.
Maybe we can ought to secure the border, you know the way we did in the war on drugs...

Yeah right, Space Cadet. Write again when you have something useful to say. It could be a while.

<<Republican Sen. John Cornyn and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, both of Texas, introduced a bipartisan bill Tuesday that aims to quell the current border crisis by making it possible to send young, Central American migrants back to their home countries more quickly. To accomplish this, the Helping Unaccompanied Minors and Alleviating National Emergency (HUMANE) Act proposes changes to a law signed by George W. Bush in 2008 that treats unaccompanied child migrants from Mexico and Canada differently than it does those from countries not directly bordering the U.S.>>

It's neither reassuring nor surprising that they saw fit to come up with the warm and fuzzy acronym "HUMANE" for their proposal "to quell the current border crisis by making it possible to send young, Central American migrants back to their home countries more quickly."

By the way, "CNN noted Tuesday that [this allegedly bipartisan] HUMANE Act currently has no Democratic sponsors in the Senate, but it does have a few influential Democratic detractors."

All that's labeled "HUMANE" isn't necessarily humane. Like calling it "bipartisan" because two guys from right wing Texas are sponsoring it, labeling it "HUMANE" is a shamefully an exercise in deception by design, an intentionally misleading euphemism.

It's time to get the ball rolling and deport these diseased parasites,especially since most of them don't qualify for protection under the 2008 law. According to Jon Feeders(legal policy analyst at the center for immigration studies),the 2008 law applied only to unaccompanied minors who don't have a parent or guardian already living in the US - a situation that doesn't apply to a significant majority of the bug infested parasites jumping the border. Since there is little evidence to suggest that the parasites currently arriving at the US border are victims of trafficking ,and few can be described as "unaccompanied" under federal law,the 2008 trafficking law has limited applicability to the current border surge. Get The Hell Out!!!

What's the problem, Big Larry?

You can talk the talk.

But in reality your just a load-mouthed Anti-American Progressive jackass.

Walk the walk or shut your piehole.

Based on recent polls these attitudes arent the majority opinion on the issue. The Republican have no majority on issues in the nation

Read Bush's law for your own intrepentation. It just gurantees unaccompanied juveniles a hearing as part of the deportation proceedings.
