Close to 300 Women, Children Caught Along Texas-Mexico Border

Joe Gomez, CBS DFW, June 19, 2014

A day after Texas state leaders approved a border security surge, news comes out of Mission, Texas that close to 300 women and children have been caught trying to cross illegally into the U.S.

“I talked to a Border Patrol agent yesterday and he told me that in one group–not several groups–but in one group, 280 mothers and children were caught; they turned themselves in,” says Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo). “That shows you the magnitude of what’s happening down there.”

He says the word is out that sanctuary can be found in the U.S. if you cross the Mexican border.

“The message is out. This is not just happening by accident. Criminal organizations know that if you’re a woman or a child, you are going to stay in the U.S. You’re given a piece of paper called a notice to appear [before ICE] and told you can travel anywhere in the United States,” says Cuellar. {snip}

George Grayson, a Professor Emeritus in Latin American Studies at the College of William and Mary, says the amount of illegal immigrants crossing the border now could seem like a drop in the bucket down the line.

“They will seek to have their families join them in the country . . . more migrants will be encouraged to reach the southwest border,” says Grayson. “Citizens from around the world are watching, and how many hundreds of thousands of desperate people do you think would like to flock to Central America, seek the services of a smuggler and make a bee line for the U.S. border? What’s now a wave of people at the frontier will become possibly a tsunami.”

    The US government gave them a ticket into the US, I can guarantee you that most of these people will not show up for their deportation hearings and will only be apprehended if they break the law.

    There was a feel good story about a BP agent wit EMT training who delivered an anchor baby. Isn’t that sweet. By the way, where are the husbands and fathers? I though all these conservative Christians had such exemplary family values.

    • 1stworlder

      They are only Christians for the handouts from the church, once they get on welfare/EBT they stop going to church because they don’t need to. Medical training not here, did the EMT forget the story of the illegal alien that sued his rescuers that pulled him from his unregistered, unlicensed car?

    What the professor is saying is that foreigners from around the world will use Mexico and Central America as a gateway to enter the USA. Well then, at some future date, the USA will have no choice but to extend itself all the way to the Panama Canal.

  • Obama is paying to spread the word down Mexico way and south. The government is also giving these thurd world squat monsters travel money to assist in their travels. It’s all part of an illegal government operation.

    The Powered Wig Society posted an item that I reblogged which reproduces that section of the US Code making it illegal (5 years in prison) to assist an illegal immigrant in any way.

    The law means nothing to a tyrant, and unless that tyrant is removed via revolution or some legal means, we can expect ourselves and our posterity to live under an increasingly repressive regime.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The multikulti tyrants cannot be removed democratically, but revolution against them is legally sanctioned by the American Declaration of Independence.

    • Ann Barnhardt posted an absolutely brilliant piece on her site today. Essentially, the lawless Obama seeks the overthrow of the Mexican government by the drug cartels, which would instantly make all 140 million Mexicans refugees in the US. This provides the reason to create one nation out of Mexico, the US, and Canada, whose corrupt government is along for the ride after the US military overthrows the cartel government in Mexico City. A new war, open borders, one world government, all brilliantly put together by tyrant Obama. And don’t forget the martial law.

        Can the Mods step in here?

        We’ve got same old, same old Amurikun patriotard conspiracy monger here putting out some ridiculous conspiracy theory that Obama is some supernatural demonic tyrant single handedly plotting a one world government!

        Obama is a lame duck President, not all powerful. Lots and lots of other people are at fault for our immigration mess and lots of other people in our government and in our military are actually good people on our side.

        Don’t fall for this paranoid American conspiracy theory nonsense. This crap has been around since the 1950s only we were supposedly about to be delivered in to the hands of….

        THE RUSSIANS!

        We should have been so lucky!

        • Alexandra1973

          I wouldn’t say Obama’s doing it singlehandedly. He’s just being a good house Negro.

  • dd121

    Is this where I should talk about interlocking fields of fire?

  • kjh64

    It wouldn’t become a tsunami if the US would start ENFORCING its’ immigration policy but of course, these people were likely “invited” by Obama.

    Obama is going to let everyone in. Why not? He said he wanted to fundamentally change America. When they’re here there will be noway to send them back. When their takeover is complete there will be 2 Barak Obama streets in every town in America for 1 MLK street. We lost everything in the 2012 election.

  • Pro_Whitey

    When it comes to sending them back across the border, women and children first.

    The tsunami of Mestizos will continue until there is virtually no one left in Central America. There is NO ONE representing the American people in Washington DC. The end result of this will be ecnomic collapse as the system is overloaded with recipients of welfare, medicaid and other social services. Even the Mestizos that work will qualify for these benefits because they will be employed in very low wage jobs. This is the Cloward-Piven startegy in action. As the Federal Reserve continues to fund all the social welfare programs these people require by printing more dollars it will eventually lead to a loss of reserve currency status. Once the dollar loses its reserve currency status the economy will collapse because the Federal Reserve will be unable to continue printing funny money to fund our deficit, and all the dollars presently in circulation around the world will come home. The result will severe price infaltion along with even higher levels of unemployment and wage deflation. Russia and China are already putting plans in motion to begin buying and seeling oil outside the petrodollar and Iran has now joined them. This is the beginning of the dollars loss of reserve currency status and I can’t emphasize enough how sigbnificant the negative impact of this will be on the US economy. Everyone believes Obama is an incompetent; he is not. He is doing exactly what he said he would do. He is fundamentally changing the United States of America.

      Oh shut up.

      Lots of people in Washington are on our side working to stop, reverse this invasion.

      Ever hear of Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions?

      We’ve only defeated about ten mass illegal alien amnesties . We won these battles by doing hard work, effective grass roots activism instead of just giving up and saying “it’s hopeless, nobody cares”.

      • Like I said ten days ago, the profundity of what happened that day and evening, even as shocking as it seemed at the time, wouldn’t fully be understood until some time has passed. Of course a lot of people directly invested in amnesty are shoveling the manure, but everyone else gets it. Not enough House Republicans have gotten the message yet, because just enough of them picked someone worse on immigration than Eric Cantor to take Eric Cantor’s place as Majority Leader. But if John Boehner ever calls a vote on any bill that smells like amnesty, then everyone is going to be thinking of June 10, 2014.

        I can tell you one person who has gotten the message, even though she might be disingenuous about it: Hillary Clinton. Who is now saying that the Camp of the Saints dreamers should be sent home.

          That I heard–good for her.

    Please call the Congressional office of this Hispanic Democrat Congressman who is at least expressing common sense support for the border patrol and stoping the cartel’s smuggling of…

    The entire third world.

    Be polite. Use *67 to block you ph if you want to protect your privacy.

    Stopping the third world immigration invasion has just gotten very, very popular. We just defeated the House Majority leader, crushingly defeated the supposedly all powerful forces of. Sheldon Adelson, Mark Zuckerberg, the MSM, Rupert Murdoch, the US Chamber of Commerce, the Tops of all the filthy rich, tax exempt churches.
