Border Patrol Changing Diapers, Heating Baby Formula for Surge of Children

Stephen Dinan, Washington Times, June 13, 2014

Gil Kerlikowske, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said Friday that many of the illegal immigrant children his agents are encountering trying to slip across the U.S.-Mexico border have never even seen a doctor before.

He described scenes of Border Patrol agents changing diapers and heating baby formula in order to care for some of the youngest children, and said agents are being asked to do things way beyond their skill set–particularly for so many of the agents who are young, single men.

The commissioner was pushing back against a complaint filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and several immigrant-rights groups this week charging that agents and officers have been neglecting or abusing many of the children, verbally or physically.

Mr. Kerlikowske said he’s seen pictures of a birthday cake agents brought in for an 11-year-old who, the commissioner said, had never had a birthday cake before.

He described a number of firsts for some of the children–including the medical checkups.

He said most of the children “have never been treated by a doctor of a clinician until they’ve been encountered by us.”

An internal Border Patrol memo from last month pointed to a number of problems, including the inoculations the children require.

One Border Patrol agent this week told The Times that agents trained to patrol the border were instead doing “babysitting” guard duty.

That agent said some of the more extreme reports included having to separate teenaged boys and girls trying to engage in sex.

    Is this the ‘new’ Border Patrol, or the Baby Patrol?

    Another of NoBama’s eunuch policies. They will never end.

  • Hold the phone.

    Since when did 18-year old men need diapers and baby formula?

    • Martel

      Perhaps its time to check your white privilege?
      Mexican mothers don’t have the resources to potty train their underprivileged children, because you don’t want to give it to them.

      • Waldemar Daninsky

        Mexican mothers don’t have the resources to potty train their children? Are you on ‘ludes? Mexican mothers don’t sh*t out back behind their shacks? They can’t train their chillens to do so without my resources? You are daft.

      • Waldemar Daninsky

        Sorry, you were being sarcastic, yes? I missed it first time around. Sorry.

    • Katherine McChesney

      The guards actually bought a birthday cake for an eleven year old.

      That sickens me to no end.

      • Who Me?

        The guard is probably an anchor baby himself.

        • Good point. That’s actually more true than we realize. I often see “Mexican-Americans” as Border Patrol Agents who I believe are nothing more than anchor babies themselves. It’s disgusting!

        • Greg Thomas

          No doubt about that.

      • Bossman

        Are you a mother? Your attitude seems strange for a woman. How would you treat an eleven year old?

        • Katherine McChesney

          I object to the guard pampering illegals no matter the age.

        • Katherine McChesney

          I object to the guard pampering illegals no matter the age.

        • Andy

          I can imagine buying the eleven-year-old a cake. If I lived anywhere near the border, I’d probably be spending my spare time working at one of these places, if only to keep our border patrol doing border patrol work. I wish these children well, but they need to go home. We have our own children to raise, and we’re not giving them a very bright future.

        • AutomaticSlim

          “How would you treat an eleven year old?”

          How about sending them home where they belong?
          And what about the parents of these mestizos, who abandoned them? Is that behavior not strange to you?

          • MooTieFighter

            yep, they need to be sent back and their parents need some investigating (investigating by their own country, that is).

        • Alexandra1973

          I’m a mother and I want to protect my 12-year-old from these illegal 11-year-olds who will likely be thugs in the future. Ship ’em back along with their parents.

          You’re just falling for the old “but the children” line.

      • r j p

        Oh yes, the 6’2″ 195 pound 11 yo baseball phenom’s birthday?

    • Whitetrashgang

      Its called the sixties.

    • Since when did babies crawl across the Sonora Desert in mid-June?

    • Maybe the Mexican ones do. After all, they never seemed very bright to me. That said, since the White House is backing this invasion, I think Michelle Obama should have to breast-feed them: all of them.

  • Nancy Thomas

    500,000 homeless veterans living on the streets and Obama ignores them.
    Thousands of invaders storm our border and Obama treats them like gold.
    Obama is scum.

    • guest

      That’s why I feel sorry for the men and women fighting for our country. Because they’re really just putting their own lives at risk for a government who will easily backstab them.

      • Alexandra1973

        Yep, they send our troops to fight unjust wars for TPTB’s agenda, then kick them to the curb.

        Until we have a government that has its act together, I’d strongly discourage anyone from entering military service.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          To serve in the military now is to be used to harm the interests of one’s own people.

          • Mergatroyd

            Amen and thread winner, Zap.

            You’ve written a good mantra that should be repeated across pro- and anti-white sites.

        • Ringo Lennon

          I don’t know why any white person would fight for this country. Unless they couldn’t find regular jobs.

          • Troy Swonger

            I would rather be unemployed and homeless than risk my life killing muslims to protect the jews.

          • Ringo Lennon

            Exactly. Why would a white man fight for a country that hates him .

          • Mergatroyd

            To which country are you referring? Israel or the United States.

            Oh wait…same thing, except our young fight their wars FOR them to keep them safe.

      • So CAL Snowman

        It’s a volunteer army . . .

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          It’s a mercenary army.

          The reward is US citizenship.

          • A Freespeechzone

            MAKE no mistake, when the time comes, the mercenary US military will fire on US Citizens—specifically Whites, without reservation.

      • A Freespeechzone

        Remember that illegals are our future—Obama said so.

        Obama doesn’t give an ef for Americans, the Military, Veterans or anyone who has contributed to this country—-he sides with those who are ignorant, brown, dirty and takers.

      “500,000 homeless veterans”

      Seems like an extremely high number. Where did you get that count?
      How many of them are non black/mulatto/mestizo?

    • Mergatroyd

      Are you kidding? Of course he treats them like gold and it is completely within character for him to do so.

      What? You thought he was going to change and put White American citizens before illegal aliens?

      That’s his voting base: low IQ, easily controlled drones of the state. They’ll help to make the entire U.S. a one-party theocracy, with cultural marxism as the religion.

  • Samuel_Morton

    America has become a parody of itself. Who needs The Onion when truth is stranger than fiction?

  • guest

    Just when we think our border couldn’t get anymore messed up, now we have border patrol agents serving as nannies and babysitters to children of illegal immigrants.

    Is it any wonder why many Americans no longer have pride in their country? The US is now the doormat of the world. These illegal immigrants don’t see Americans as helpful, they see Americans as fools who are easy to take advantage of.

    So how did the babies travel 2,000 miles from their stone age settlement in Honduras to the US? Did they fly? Maybe the old European stork theory is true? I knew the ACLU SPLC LARAZA using ADL AJC WZO money would start suing the BP. They will only sue White BP agents of course. Careers will be ruined.
    This country might be better off if the Russians had conquered us in 1950.

    • Hallie Eva

      So how did the babies travel 2,000 miles from their stone age settlement in Honduras to the US?
      Pick me, pick me! I know the answer to that, Truth!
      They did not. They were flown, then bussed.
      Does the trasher-in-chief think we are stupid?[rhetorical question]

      They are definitely getting some “inside” help. Our current administration is more evil than the thugs that live in your bad part of town.

  • Korean guy

    I would love to know how babies young enough to require baby formulas successfully crossed the border and arrived in the States without getting turned down at the border~

    • Who Me?

      Who brought these babies up here and carried them across the border? Who was taking care of them then? Why aren’t those persons still taking care of the babies? Make them continue doing it and take both adult and baby back to the country of origin.

      • Magician

        “Some Mexican or South American illegal immigrants come here, and abandon the babies here and go back to their homelands”

        does not sound very realistic either.

      • Andy

        My guess is either their relatives paid smugglers to bring them here, and the smugglers promptly dropped them off with the border patrol, knowing they’d finish the job for free, or that older siblings (or teenaged parents) brought them, but our wise government decided it was unethical to expect the older relatives to be the caregivers.

    • Greg Thomas

      Our Border Patrol Korean guy has become nothing more than an illegal invading mexican outreach program. It would not surprise me in the least to discover our very own BP was making the travel arrangements. The BP is in large part run by mexican anchor babies and funded by an administration who wants to flood this country with illegal mexicans. They would be thrilled at the chance to help their invading La Raza.

    • The Sonoran Desert has coyotes, foxes, rattlesnakes, mountain lions, wild peccaries, and other wildlife that would be dangerous for someone requiring infant formula. Let’s also remember that it is mid-June, and it gets hot there during the summer. According to Wikipedia, the average June daytime high in Tuscon is 100F. In Phoenix, this is 104F.

      Who really believes that a horde of infants crawled across a desert in that sort of heat?

      • Korean guy

        Thanks for the detailed and factual information, old friend

        Would they be doing this?

        First, drive the infants all the way up to the border, and tell the children to cross the border, and since they look so young, vulnerable and weak, the BP cannot easily refuse them and the illegal immigrants are taking advantage of it? And at some point in the future, take advantage of the “family unification” policy?

        A lot of refugees in Europe take advantage of the “family unification” policy. Once a refugee gains the citizenship of the hosting country, he or she can legally bring his or her own family members to the hosting country and they will also be given citizenship. (And we all know that it is very common in some countries around the world to have ten or more family members per family)

  • John Smith

    This is f****** sickening.

    And we have DHS and the Feds hassling American born whites legally driving their cars at ILLEGAL checkpoints – asking nosy questions – wanting to ILLEGALLY search cars – while millions of violent, parasitic illegal aliens come walking across the border…in search of free food, free housing, free medical care, free health care.

    And I am a f****** “racist” for stating the simple truth.

    • r j p

      You are and so am I.

  • It time to use our brains and harden our hearts. There are literally billions of thurd world sob stories to be told. We must look after our own people, while recognizing that the diablolical Obama is trying to deflect attention from Iraq, the VA, Benghazi, Bowe Bergdahl, and other of his deliberate efforts to destroy this country.

    The propaganda machine is going full tilt to tug at the heartstrings of soft-hearted American white people. Who could be so cruel as to not feel sorry for “children,” who are hugely young adults, NOT children in any traditional sense. Well, there’s me. I feel nothing for them. I’ve crossed over the border into Mexico and seen how the adults treat the toddlers, using them for sex, for begging, and so if they don’t give a damn about their own, why should I? Why should you? Why should anybody?

    They’re parasites using their children just as they use them in their own countries. Obama is bringing them here by the trainload, as will be proved in some future investigation. He and his party must be held accountable and if that means American Revolution II, then so be it.

    We didn’t start this fight but we must vow to finish it.

    open immigration can’t coexist with a strong social safety net; if you’re going to assure health care and a decent income to everyone, you can’t make that offer global.

    – Paul Krugman

    • Adolf Verloc

      Exactly – social democratic programs will collapse if the entire world can move here to take advantage of them. Many on the right, the libertarians in particular, are also in a state of denial. I’ve asked many libertarians whether they would be prepared to have the US population swell by hundreds of millions of people in an open borders scenario.

      • AutomaticSlim

        “open immigration can’t coexist with a strong social safety net;”
        “social democratic programs will collapse if the entire world can move here to take advantage of them”

        How about we get rid of both?
        They are both a cancer that needs to be removed.

        Eliminate 3rd world immigration and we stop importing parasites and thugs.
        Eliminate the welfare/food stamps/medicaid/public housing/head start/etc.. safety net and we stop the population growth of home grown parasites and thugs. A win-win if there ever was one.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Krugman must have written that when he was still a _bona fide_ economist, not the pampered lapdog of the New York Slimes that he has since become.

      • JohnEngelman

        Paul Krugman writes two columns for The New York Times every week. I have never read anything by him that contradicted what he wrote in that column.

        This is what Paul Krugman has to say about Stephen J. Gould who is often named by those who claim that The Bell Curve has been refuted: “Now it is not very hard to find out, if you spend a little while reading in evolution, that Gould is the John Kenneth Galbraith of his subject. That is, he is a wonderful writer who is beloved by literary intellectuals and lionized by the media because he does not use algebra or difficult jargon.

        “Unfortunately, it appears that he avoids these sins not because he has transcended his colleagues but because he does does not seem to understand what they have to say; and his own descriptions of what the field is about – not just the answers, but even the questions – are consistently misleading. His impressive literary and historical erudition makes his work seem profound to most readers, but informed readers eventually conclude that there’s no there there.”

        • Spikeygrrl

          Again, you see no contradiction among the opinion pieces Krugman has produced for the NYT…because there isn’t any. But apparently you are unaware that he was an actual economist BEFORE he became a NYT drivelmeister.

          His comment on the incompatibility between open borders and unlimited gubmint gimmes actually made sense, ergo it’s safe to assume he wrote it while he was still a real economist. Today’s NYT would never print such heresy!

          Exactly what part of that do you find difficult to understand?

          • JohnEngelman

            Paul Krugman’s column about immigration policy appeared in The New York Times four years ago. It could have appeared last week. The New York Times does not censor Paul Krugman’s columns.

            What on Earth are you babbling on about now? Nobody mentioned censorship, and…

    We can’t boycott many hispanic industries such as food processors. I do boycott eating out anywhere because even if the waiters and bar tenders are White the kitchen is full of hispanic illegals. But we can all boycott All State Insurance company because of that ugly black guy spokesman. I hate the geico lizard, but he is better than a black guy.

    • Spikeygrrl

      Boycotting a company just because of its hired spokesmodel? Oh, THAT’S productive.

      I’m guessing that you either don’t know or don’t care that GEICO stands for Government Employees Insurance COmpany. If you despise public sector unions, GEICO is the insurer to boycott.

      • SoulInvictus

        If we’re talking about insurance companies to avoid…
        Travellers is the absolute worst I’ve ever seen. From a customer perspective and having known someone who worked on the inside, they are absolutely hostile towards their own customers in efforts to avoid paying claims.
        I’ve never seen anything like it in a business. No clue how they stay around…
        Insure with them at your own risk.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    And, to make sure the border patrol is compliant…

    Immigration activists filed a complaint with the U.S. government on Wednesday alleging systematic abuse of more than 100 unaccompanied migrant children by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents.

    The complaint, addressed to the Department of Homeland Security by a coalition of groups, says 116 youths suffered abuse including sexual assault and beatings, were denied medical care and were not given enough food and water.

    They were abused by their own parents and own government.

    The media need to stop emphasizing that these are children, most appear to be young men who are trying to pass as under 18 or mothers with children.

    He said most of the children ‘have never been treated by a doctor of a clinician until they’ve been encountered by us.’

    Many US Vets have not yet been treated or are being denied treatment by a doctor or clinician.

    • Hallie Eva

    • dewdly

      They aren’t children unless boys now have mustaches and little girls have offspring. They are characterized as unaccompanied children so they can’t be sent back, but instead are to function as anchor “children” allowing the rest of their family to come too. No one explains how unaccompanied children – even babies in diapers – made it through cartel-controlled Mexico to arrive on our border. The story is a preposterous fabrication.
