Congressional Committee: Send Illegals Home

Alana Cook, WND, June 24, 2014

President Obama needs to let people in Central America know it’s not acceptable to send their children to enter the United States illegally, members of a congressional committee said on Tuesday.

And it would help if he would encourage Mexico to close its southern border, too, they said during a hearing regarding the flood of illegal alien children arriving daily in Texas and Arizona from points mostly in Central America.

The Committee on Homeland Security, chaired by Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, questioned Department of Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson about why more has not been done already.

“I think that this humanitarian crisis can be laid directly at the feet of President Obama as a result of his DACA policy in 2012. And so I hope that our hearing today doesn’t just point out the problem, which is very, very bad, getting worse, no end in sight, but I hope that we can coalesce around some actual options and solutions,” Rep. Candice Miller, R-Mich., said.

She and other House Republicans are pushing for Obama to call up the National Guard to help overwhelmed U.S. Border Patrol officers deal with the crisis, to which Johnson said he’d already added 115 officers.

DHS officials said they are seeking more places to house the children, who are only supposed to be held for 72 hours by Customs before being turned over to Health and Human Services to be flown throughout the country and placed in foster homes, sometimes with parents who are illegal immigrants themselves.

Though Republicans said the children should be sent back to their home countries, Johnson and other House Democrats said doing so would be inhumane and most likely the children will remain in the U.S.

Johnson released a letter on Monday to those parents in Central America saying there are no free passes into the U.S., and that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program does not apply to children who arrive now or in the future to the U.S. To be considered for DACA, individuals must have continually resided in the U.S. for the past seven years.

But House Republicans said that Obama’s DACA program is the reason for the crisis.

In fact, they asked Johnson about a government advertisement in January requesting contractors to provide escorts for 65,000 unaccompanied immigrant children. Johnson responded that he not know why the government posted the ad.

“If you knew that up to 65,000 unaccompanied children were going to be coming to this country, for Pete’s sake, you should have been doing something about it. And I don’t see where this administration or the Department of Homeland Security has done anything. Am I wrong?” Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., demanded of Johnson.

That announcement said the minors will arrive “with a phased approach over a period of several months to a full year,” and that 25 percent will be “local ground transport, 25 percent will arrive via ICE charter and 50 percent via commercial air.”

Republicans said instead of providing millions of dollars more in aid to Central American countries for climate change and social issues, the Obama administration needs to cut the funding and secure America’s borders with fences.

McCaul said committee members are “gravely concerned about the safety of children no matter where they come from.”

“This is a crisis,” he said, “that’s been in the making for years. We should have seen it coming. Few concrete actions have been taken.”

He said the Obama administration first needs to acknowledge its part in making the problem, through its policies.

“What is new is a series of executive actions by the administration to grant immigration benefits to children outside the purview of the law,” he said. “Such a narrative shapes behavior and encourages people to come to our country illegally.”

He continued, “This administration should send an unambiguous message that those arriving will promptly be sent home.”

  • What gets my goat is that some of the biggest open borders Republicans around are now mouthing off about “send them home” and “Obama’s fault they’re coming,” as if we’re not supposed to notice their responsibility in helping to bring about the Camp of the Saints.

    Unless we get a Putin style figure willing to use the pen and phone that Obama created to extradite the deportation process extra-legally, they’re not ever going home.

    • Sick of it

      Unfortunately, most of the electorate isn’t all that bright. They have short memories to boot.

      • True, but that can be both a good and a bad thing.

      • Jacobite2

        Once they (if you know who I mean) figure out which r*ce they are, I think they’ll remember. And that’s all they need to remember.

    • MBlanc46

      Blaming Obama for this disaster is appropriate. But we should never forget the role that Repubs play in this debacle. Nor should we let the Repubs forget.

      • Sure, Obama deserves part of the blame. But any open borders Republican looking to pawn all the blame off on Obama while not citing themselves are just playing partisan yay red team boo blue team games.

        After all, we already have a President who is adept of avoiding being blamed for the negative consequences of his own actions.

        • MBlanc46

          I wasn’t contradicting what you said, merely that blaming all of the perps is appropriate. In fact, perhaps we should focus on the businesses that hire the illegals, and fund the pro-immigration Repubs, rather than the flunky politicians.

      • I agree. NEVER LET THE REPUBLICANS FORGET! Rub it in their noses every chance you get. Always remind them how much they too wanted to grant amnesty to millions of illiterate, non-assimilating third-world peasant invaders. NEVER FORGET!!

      • IBWHITE

        I remember very well what the stupid party used to parrot all the time – They’re (The brown midget invaders) are just doing the jobs that Americans refuse to do.

        • Obviously you don’t have a job and live off Obammy money so you need Mexicans to wipe your lazy a$$. Racist and lazy describe you sir.

      • Why because the Republicans did not support the amnesty bill that did nothing to secure the border (S744)? Every democRat that voted for that should be voted out. NO AMNESTY for those who are line cutters. I came here legally!

  • Publius Pompilius Quitus

    Illegal aliens do not want to be Americans and generally
    resent the historic American nation.
    They come here for jobs and welfare, and without them, they would return
    home. Ergo, there is no need for en mass
    deportation.

    • mikebowen55

      Well, let’s be fair and give them 10 days to leave and after that we let anyone who is up to it deal with the problem. I’m sure that there would be no shortage of volunteers.

    • Manaphy

      That also tends to hold true for most legal immigrants from non-white countries.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        Third world immigrants are destructive parasites. When the jobs and welfare dry up, they move on to another host.

        • IstvanIN

          Not entirely true, a lot would just squat.

          • Ike Eichenberg

            And turn to crime.

    • Ike Eichenberg

      A very astute point, that very few people understand. Cut off the financial incentive and they go home.

      We also need to end birth right citizenship and make that retroactive at least 2 if not 10 generations.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      As Ann Coulter reiterates, the Immigration Act of 1965 (Hart-Celler) was a lie. Ted Kennedy told the American people that America’s demographics wouldn’t change. An immigration moratorium would begin to make amends for that strategic lie.

      Plus, with automation, technology in general, and America already turned into “a bedroom country”, the old growth model needs to change. Not only would America survive negative population growth, it is probably the necessary model going forward. A complete immigration moratorium would do that. And solve our much bigger problem. Win/win.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        “…Err uh, the demographics won’t change, err uh…”.
        .

    • I think many will go home. They are literally being dumped by busses on the sides of the street with the rest of the homeless people. I wish all these children could be adopted out and I also wish that these morbidly obese illegal women would stop popping these kids out like popcorn and expect America to pay and take care of them. I read on some site the reason why the government is being so secretive with all these families while they are coming in is because they are actually giving them inoculations to produce sterility while claiming they are shots for diseases. Wouldn’t surprise me.

  • Samuel_Morton

    This is nothing more than political posturing by diversity-loving Republicans who smell blood and see an angle to gain power. They’ll be the first to profess their love for brown immigrants at the first chance to prove their morality.

    • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

      Not after Dave Brat, outspent 20-1, beat Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor 55-44 by hammering Cantor on immigration. Go to Youtube. Type “Dave Brat Press Conference on Immigration.” Be amazed.

      • Manaphy

        Dave Brat is an outlier in many ways.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          Brat was also repeating that corporations favor amnesty. I just can’t understand the logic in that rhetoric. The invaders are essentially all Democrats who will vote for every entitlement program under the sun. It will raise income taxes, property taxes, sales taxes–and corporate taxes. I just don’t see the corporate synergies there, other than the H-1B slave employee angle, but net/net corporations lose. H-1B is a race replacement vehicle and nothing else. The people on those visas are 99% non-white.

          • Manaphy

            Occam’s Razor: the simplest solution is the most likely. Big businesses want more illegals, simply for cheap labor. Also Mexicans are less likely than white and black workers to unionize, therefore businesses are eager to replace the latter with the former. Meanwhile tech tycoons in silicon valley only want “immigration reform” so that they can import more Oriental and Indian geeks and replace their current white programmers with them, for the same reason: cheap labor.

          • Manaphy

            Also, you can simply look at the last names of the “corporatists” pushing for Immigration reform, and that on its own will give you all the answers you need. But then again, we can’t discuss this on Amren.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            I pulled off a comment on that topic. Scroll down. See how long it lasts. They deleted all my u-tube links. Not sure why.

          • Manaphy

            As of now it is still there, but Amren 75% of the time deletes my comments which even slightly mention this issue. I blame Engelman.

          • Manaphy

            And here we go, my comment has been deleted.

      • Samuel_Morton

        Dave Brat is a different story all together. He’s definitely encouraging.

  • JohnEngelman

    Conservative business interests want more immigrants to provide downward pressure on wages.

    I wonder how many liberal humanitarians have wondered why Hispanics have been unable to create viable communities in their own countries.

    • mikebowen55

      “Conservative business interests” is only part of the equation. Tribe members and other marxists want them here because they know that under multiculturalism there is no way that Whites can regain control through the political system. They simply keep bribing the brown hordes with more and more handouts. You’ve seen it with blacks now they’re going the same route with the invaders.

      • DonReynolds

        In the viewpoint of the “conservative business interests”, the Negro has been a bit disappointing and a weak performing investment. After 50 years of civil rights struggle and trillions in public expenditure, their numbers have not dramatically grown……too many have been aborted, shot in street fights, or ended up in prison. Besides, it takes a long time to conceive a black child and raise them in the (also disappointing) public schools to become a productive (?) and contributing (?) member of society.

        It is much better, in their viewpoint, to sheepsteal full grown young adults from foreign (Hispanic) countries. Many of them are male and they are perfectly happy to form new family units with willing white girls.

        • Einsatzgrenadier

          The negroes haven’t been a disappointment at all. They vote Democratic, which is all that matters for the corporate and political elites. The same goes for Hispanics and other third world immigrants. The more Democratic voters they can get inside the US, the greater the power of the elites over the lives and destinies of American citizens.

          • DonReynolds

            That would not explain the Republican RINO betrayal, which would have to be considered a large chunk of the “conservative business interests” in this country.

            Since their mania is to reduce taxes on business and facilitate cheap illegal alien labor, they may have second thoughts about the impact of so many on the public dole….. particularly since illegal aliens do well primarily at the expense of better-paid American workers….. er uh consumers.

            It must seem very costly to create such a welfare overburden (deliberately) while insisting that taxes be cut. The only solution is still more national debt, the interest of which is already crowding out other items in the Federal budget.

      • RisingReich

        You’re barking up the wrong tree here. Engleman thinks the perfect Nation is made up of Asians and Yiddish.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        Yeah, that is probably a hidden factor within the corporate interests. There’s no logical reason corporations would want a tidal wave of unskilled, entitle-ment voters.

        They just like the skilled slave labor that comes with H-1B. And that also serves the tribe’s interest for white race replacement, since 99% of H-1B visa holders are non-white.

        The corporations get the skilled slave labor and the tribe gets their white race replacement. Divide & Conquer through dilution.

    • Alexandra1973

      White privilege.

      Why not–that’s the reason that’s usually tossed out….

  • These administration officials certainly lie with impunity to Congress, don’t they? Following their Pied Piper, the Obamunist, practicing Alinsky’s rules with arrogance. Arrest them, try them, then execute them. All of them.

    • mikebowen55

      Nothing less could be expected from a sane nation. Unfortunately we’re living in less than sane conditions. Generally, I don’t agree with giving the enemy a trial but I do think it would make great entertainment for the masses, and if nothing else, it would certainly be a great lead-in to the executions.

      • DonReynolds

        If the enemy decide to surrender and we accept their surrender, they should be afforded the decency of being treated as prisoners. If they are accused of crimes, they certainly should be allowed a fair trial and the benefit of legal counsel and the presumption of innocence.
        There is nothing that says the enemy will want to surrender or that patriots will accept their surrender, if it is offered. (If I were present at the time, no surrender and no truce would be the rule.)

  • Puggg

    Pardon me for playing the part of skeptical doggy. But I think a lot of the people deploring this influx are really behind closed doors cheering it on.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      And vice versa.

    • Alexandra1973

      Wouldn’t doubt it. And dogs are pretty good at sniffing out someone’s “character.”

  • RisingReich

    Does it drive anyone else absolutely CRAZY to hear this referred to as a ‘humanitarian crisis’!?

    As if they are really intent on actually DOING anything about it.

    • More like the “crisis” of an invading army of non-white, third-world peasant invaders! These people have NOTHING to offer the U.S. except more crime, more ‘cholos,’ more run-down neighborhoods, more white flight, more welfare dependency, more out-of-wedlock births, and more squalor.

    • TruthBeTold

      What drives ME crazy are all the ‘pity the poor immigrant’ stories they keep showing on the news.

      THEY made the choice to come here (and stay) and they complain about how they’re treated.

      WHY should I care?

      The ONLY thing the MSM should be reporting is that these people are here illegally and our government isn’t doing anything about it.

      • Even Glenn Beck has recently jumped on the ‘compassion’ bandwagon for the ‘children’ of illegal aliens who are currently being detained at the border.

        • DonReynolds

          Sometimes, in the past, I have enjoyed listening to Glenn Beck, but I got turned off by his anti-Southern bias and his pro-black positions. He is a “recovering alcoholic”, so it is unreasonable to expect him to think straight.

    • evilsandmich

      It’s a ‘humanitarian crisis’ in the same way that ‘cheap TV day’ at WalMart causes a humanitarian crisis: it’s just an off-white mob charging the gate for free-bees

  • MBlanc46

    “[T]he Obama administration needs to cut the funding and secure America’s borders with fences.”

    No aid, no trade, no nothing until we stop seeing their citizens sneaking over our southern border.

    • DonReynolds

      Subtract their foreign aid budget by a fixed amount per head, so that the home country has a financial interest in keeping them from making the trip.
      Many of the Central Americans have already been coached to claim they are from Mexico, so they will be put back over the border……where they can cross again tomorrow. One it is determined that they are NOT from Mexico, they get sent back to their own country instead…..which is a much longer walk to the Rio Grande. The US Border Patrol is already wise to their gambit.

  • Pro_Whitey

    In my area the anti-semite card was immediately played by leftist trolls in comment sections. As others have pointed out, it’s as if his constituents did not know he was Jewish until this year after electing him 7 times before. A ludicrous charge.

  • Who Me?

    “President Obama needs to let people in Central America know it’s not acceptable to send their children to enter the United States illegally, members of a congressional committee said on Tuesday.
    And it would help if he would encourage Mexico to close its southern border, too, they said.”
    ————————————————————
    Yes, to the first part, but let Mexico manage it’s own southern border. We need to worry about our own southern border, and secure it “by any means necessary”–a phrase they love so well. (A 10-foot electrified fence in the middle of a moat filled with hungry alligators comes to mind…)
    We also need to stop the legal immigration of non-whites and the admittance of all the flotsam and jetsam of every third-world country as “refugees”. Gee, I am so sorry for them, but they need to fix their own problems in their own countries, not run to us to save their miserable skins. There sure seems to be enough that if they stayed there they could make a difference.
    Cutting back on all the freebies to them would help immeasurably. If they knew they would have to pay their own way and prove themselves, they would stop coming, and a lot of them would immediately move on to greener pastures. We can’t cut off all the aid programs entirely, there are White people who need help–a lot of them directly attributable to the brown and black floods of indigents. What we CAN do is start screening the applicants and denying aid to those we do not want. Also checking the rolls of those currently receiving benefits and cutting off any and all suspicious characters. Self-deportation would be in full swing within just as few weeks. Democrats would scream–all those lovely votes. Republicans would squeal–all that cheap labor. And the White American public would be able to start repairing the damage of 50 years of corruption and anti-white legislation. (And maybe, just maybe getting rid of a whole lot of treasonous politicians in the process.)

    Political coup November 22, 1963

    Another point of
    view…..time is of the essence.

    If we remain on the path
    we are going the destiny of America is parallel to the destiny of Russia. The
    Jews provoked the Russian Revolution. What a cataclysmic disaster the
    revolution was for Russia and the world! Were the Jews incapable of fore seeing
    the outcome of their actions or was the USSR what the Jews wanted for Russia
    and the world? What will be the future of America, Europe, Australia and
    Canada? The Western world is being deconstructed by the Jews just as Russia was
    destroyed by the Jews, what will be our future? Will we have a future?

    To stop the Jews we must
    convince the decent Jews of the world to stop their fellow Jews. Harry Pottery
    is an allegory of the good Jews versus the evil Jews. Our only hope is that the
    decent Jews of the world will stop the insanity. Whites are powerless to stand
    against the tide of destiny.

    The frog in the boiling
    water metaphor.

    There were once a
    bunch of white Christian frogs existing as a majority in a homogeneous
    Christian world with our black brothers and sisters. The Jews the world did not
    want took refuge in our country and created the Utopia of Multiculturalism. The
    blacks and Jews got together and decided that white frogs were the evil majority
    who had oppressed the world and could not have the same opportunities as the
    Jews, the black frogs and the brown frogs. Laws were passed stripping the white
    frogs of all power. The Southern Poverty Law Center was established to make
    sure no white frog rebelled. Fox news was created to help the white frogs form
    politically correct attitudes. Rush and Glen helped the white frogs control
    their white anger. The Jews passed laws to immigrate only brown frogs into
    America. Oprah said all the old white frogs must die before we have the end of
    racism. Our African born black POTUS came from the land of Black Liberation
    Theology and totally agreed. The privileged white Jew, Tim Wise wrote books and
    gave lectures about the “evil weak- willed, genetically defective, culturally
    retarded white privileged European peasant frogs”…. The reasonable white frogs
    brought into the tyranny of Multiculturalism. You know the story.

    If you drop a frog in
    a pot of boiling water, it will of course frantically try to clamber out. But
    if you place it gently in a pot of tepid water and turn the heat on low, it
    will float there quite placidly. As the water gradually heats up, the frog will
    sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot bath, and before
    long, with a smile on its face, it will allow itself to be boiled to death.

    Version of the story
    from Daniel Quinn’s The Story of B

    As the heat is slowly
    turned up, something happens. One of the frogs looks around, and actually
    notices the heat. He begins analyzing and forecasting what this rising
    temperature means for his future. He jumps out of the pot and encourages others
    to do the same. While the others are afraid of the risk of leaving,
    he is afraid of the risk of becoming extinct due to inaction.
    (Copied from the website Patriot Page)

    The time is now, we
    either JUMP or DIE.

    This is the first time
    in the history of civilization that a majority population has given up its
    sovereignty without a bloody battle.

    God bless the shrewdness of the Jew. God bless
    the ignorance of Christianity. Without the story of Jesus, the Jews could not
    have pulled off this debacle.

  • Reverend Bacon

    “sending them back is inhumane.”

    I agree. Inhumane to me and the rest of us who have put up with their crap for too long, when their only downside risk is to get right back where they started, perhaps a bit older and a bit wiser.

    Send them to a random spot on the globe that isn’t in a US territory. Pick a random latitude and a random longitude, and then dump them there. Yes, 3/4 or so of that would be water, but those are the hazards of entering a game of chance. And they thought swimming the Rio Grande was tough.

  • Marc Zuckurburg

    We need comprehensive immigration reform, not “sending illegals home.”

    Comprehensive immigration reform will raise wages and salaries, strengthen national security, prevent terrorism, enhance our domestic crime-fighting ability, ensure that we continue to encourage the best and brightest to partake of the American dream, enhance our competitiveness and our ability to innovate, and make America more prosperous.

    Rejecting comprehensive immigration reform will lead to poverty, destitution, terrorism, violent crime, ignorance, stagnation and depression.

    Make my immigration reform comprehensive, please!
