Children’s Surge of Illegal Aliens Is Overwhelming the Southwest Border

Washington Times, June 9, 2014

There’s a surge on the border. This is a surge far different from George W. Bush’s dispatch of armed might to win the day in Iraq. This is a mass movement of immigrants that threatens to transform the nation.

Children are walking hundreds of miles across a hostile environment with little more than the clothes on their backs, accompanied by neither a parent nor other responsible adult. {snip}

Americans are a kind and generous people, and photographs of a sea of small, frightened and hungry faces in U.S. shelters along the southern border are enough to break a million hearts. President Obama, whatever he intended, is largely responsible. Lured by lax immigration enforcement and the promise of citizenship as “dreamers,” the Obama children’s hour is changing the mission at the border from ensuring security to providing emergency assistance. Last week, the president declared the border an “urgent humanitarian situation.” He assigned the handling of the influx of children to Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which customarily provides relief following natural disasters. This is a disaster, sure enough, but it’s a man-made disaster.

Coming to America now means getting free citizenship, free health care, welfare benefits and even an Obamaphone. Illegal aliens crossing the border into Texas say news reports in their Central American homelands encourage them to risk the journey northward with the promise that if they make it to the U.S. border, they won’t be turned away.

Undeterred by the refusal of Congress to enact the Dream Act, the president substitutes an administrative equivalent in the form of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which enables those who arrive illegally as children and are in school or the military to remain for two years, subject to renewal. Nearly 600,000 children have benefited from the program since 2012. On Friday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. announced the administration would pay for 100 lawyers to help young illegals remain in the United States.

Generosity doesn’t require that everybody who wants to come to America can come to America. The children’s surge is another consequence of the president making good on his vow to “fundamentally transform” America. He is endangering the lives of thousands of children south of the border.

    The answer is to turn them around at the border. Why do they become our problem? They are Mexico’s problem.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Yeah I would like to show them Dream act alright, its just a little different than this nightmare. Swinehund all of them, for every illegal alien let in deport 2 legal ones.

  • Ringo Lennon

    I wonder what cities and states these lice will head to?

    • borogirl54

      Mostly Arizona as payback to Jan Brewer’s actions against illegal immigrants.

      • Ringo Lennon

        Hopefully, the Upper West Side of New York.

      • Alexandra1973

        And a present for Sheriff Joe, he’s been a thorn in Obummer’s side.

    • IstvanIN

      They are being shipped to Massachusetts and New Hampshire as we speak.

      • Ringo Lennon

        Good.!

    • Who Me?

      Babies and small children now, whose big dark eyes melt your hearts, and apparently most Americans’ brains as well. Just remember well the old Indian fighter’s words, “Nits make lice.”
      Un-PC as hell.
      Also, true as hell.

    What they need to do is to get the word out that if you want to come to the US illegally, you are going to be deported and not very likely to get asylum.

    • Alexandra1973

      Tell them they’ll eventually be stuck in concentration camps…a researcher friend of mine has said that it IS going to happen.

  • 1stworlder

    I hear Congressmen Mendez is personally looking into the welfare of under 14yo girls.

    • Ike Eichenberg

      well played

    • IstvanIN

      It is Bobby Menendez. Or in Spanish Senador Pervertido.

      • 1stworlder

        Sorry thanks for the correction I needed that for a leftist site.

  • Nancy Thomas

    Obama’s fault.

    • Not just. Every Republican who has recently popped off about “dreamers,” “kids,” (e.g. the newly minted private citizen Eric Cantor), “we’ll find a place for you,” (Rand Paul), among others, is just as culpable.

      • Nancy Thomas

        Nah. Obama has actually advertised food stamps for our friends south of the border. My educated guess is that his crew made amnesty flyers and passed them out all over central america and mexico. No way this border surge was not coordinated in some way…Obama engineered it.
        You know there are no coincidences when dealing with filth like Obama. Every manufactured “crisis” is an opportunity for the King Of Filth to expand his marxist agenda to dismantle our country.

    Notice it never ever talks about the gender and actual age of the illegal immigrants

    “Children are walking hundreds of miles across a hostile environment with little more than the clothes on their backs, accompanied by neither a parent nor other responsible adult. {snip}”

    And we are supposed to believe that seven year old boys and girls walk several hundreds of miles, carrying nothing with them?

    • Bossman

      Not exactly true. There was hearing in Washington today about this and some of the senators claim that they actually spoke to some of the little girls who are here looking for their fathers and mothers in the USA.

      • Magician

        Well I stopped believing what the government says long time ago

        I am just curious, what did they eat while they were travelling several hundreds of miles on foot? It reads they were not carrying anything with themselves

        And how did they cross the border without getting turned down?

        • Bossman

          I too am puzzled by how small children could get so far by themselves.

          • Löwenmensch ᛟ

            Mexican cartels are in the human trafficking business beside guns and drugs

          • Magician

            The only answer I have is they neither are little seven year old boys and girls nor truly walked several hundreds of miles to cross the border.

            The only explanation I can think of is, someone drove them to the border and they are all men in early 20s

    • Magician

      This is what illegal immigrants always look like. Yound adult men who are waiting for the day when the liberals and anti-whites finally force their government to offer those men citizenship and they can start living the rest of their life on the free money the government puts into their bank accounts every month, while having sex with beautiful young local blond women. If she says no? Then threaten her that she will be called a racist.

      Also included is an interesting diagram that discusses the travel route of illegal immigrants in Europe.

    These people, the Mexicans and the Central Americans, are only coming because they don’t possess the necessary mental equipment or brain power to build stable, functioning societies of their own. This is actually disgraceful, but they’re too dimwitted to realize it. They’re also fiercely nationalistic and love to publicly advertise the flags of their failed nation-states once they touch down on American soil. Like other third world invaders, the indio-mestizos are too stupid to see how ironic this behavior is. Wherever they go, third world conditions go with them. This is why these foreigners need to be sent back to their own countries and forced to stay there.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      They are coming to kill us. Once they think they outnumber us enough and think we no longer have the weapons to repel them, they WILL attack. They are a threat even now, and not just because they are disease ridden. Seizing our land is one of their goals, but killing all of us off is their highest priority. That is why when they attempt to do that, we must not just merely slaughter these invaders, but devastate their home countries in response to what they are doing to ours.

  • Ike Eichenberg

    I really don’t believe these kids are walking hundreds of miles or that they are alone.

    I do believe the parents are getting them to the border by various means and sending them across to surrender (and divert the BP) while the parents sneak past with the intent to meet up later.

    Melting Pot–>Chamber Pot

  • Puggg

    Jeb Bush says that this is an act of love.

    A whole lot of future gang bangers must love us.

    Send him down to the Rio Grande, so the dreamer stampede can give Jeb Bush some wet sloppy doggy kisses as they run across the border that doesn’t exist anymore. Right behind Jeb without him seeing it will be Democratic Party voter registrars.

  • Hallie Eva

    Even more scary is a little thing called the “prodromal period” for infectious diseases. For many, 21 days. We are seeing photos of actively infected individuals. There is no way of knowing how many others are exposed and prodromal, the most contagious stage of a communicable disease process.
    Oboogbogga, a real act of love on your part would be to fly this lot to Oahu. All of them. You and the mooch are free to have them over for tea.

  • Truth Teller

    I haven’t seen a sea of small, frightened and hungry faces. What I have seen is a sea of snarling ugly 16 to 25 year old male thugs and 4ft9 250 pd women.

    • Exactly Teller. A bunch of gang bangers, rapists, murderers, etc

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Who are going to be seen by a lot of whites this way when they attack us.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Those photos do not break my heart, they fire me up further against the ruling elites who are responsible for this. I have nothing but contempt for them, and these demon spawn who should have been swallowed up by the desert. There is no way they could have travelled that far through the desert, with the fierce heat and sun without someone transporting them.
