Quotes of the day

The White House on Monday rejected charges that it has caused a flood of illegal child immigrants surging across the southern border.

Even as the influx continued, the administration defended President Obama’s 2012 decision to defer deportation of “dreamers,” people who entered the United States illegally as children, and instead blamed violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras for the spike…

Three out of every four children intercepted since October are from Guatemala, El Salvador or Honduras, said the Border Patrol memo, obtained by The Associated Press.

“Violence is a major reason they’re coming forward in this way,” the senior administration official said.

***

Poverty and violence are driving the migration, administration officials say, and activists working with migrants agree. But some also suggest that DACA could be a factor.

Tania Chavez of La Union del Pueblo Entero told KRGV-TV of the Rio Grande Valley that the “coyote” smugglers who bring Central Americans to the US illegally may be telling people that children can take advantage of the program and find work in the United States.

Indeed, media reports have indicated that many of the migrants are coming because they believe children will not be deported. “They’re saying that women and children are allowed to stay,” a recently detained undocumented immigrant from Guatemala told Monitor correspondent Lourdes Medrano in Tucson, Ariz., Thursday.

***

Though there is no change in the law for children or parents many Central Americans that enter the U.S. illegally with young children are simply being freed with an order to appear before immigration authorities at a later time.

“After they’re housed for awhile they’re given a piece of paper and they’re asked to show up in 90 days or so, and I can tell you that probably 90% of them are not going to be showing up,” says Cuellar. “Because after they traveled thousands of miles, paid a lot of money (to smugglers), went through a very dangerous situation they’re not going to turn themselves in.”

***

U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) issued the following statement on the recent reports of illegal migrants being transferred from south Texas into Arizona:..

“The reality is that there has been a dramatic increase in the number of people from Central America – so-called Other than Mexicans (OTMs) – attempting to illegally enter the United States, in some cases fleeing violence and poverty in their home countries. Because of difficulties in dealing with these Central American nations, it often takes weeks and sometimes months to deport these individuals back to their home countries. Adding to this complication is the fact that the overwhelming majority of those who were transferred to Nogales for processing were parents traveling with children or unaccompanied minors, who, according to federal law, must be reunited with a family member wherever possible…

“To be clear: These individuals being apprehended by the Border Patrol are not eligible to remain in this country legally and, in fact, would not qualify for legal status or a chance to earn citizenship in the immigration reform legislation passed by the Senate last year

“For too long this administration has been preoccupied with telling Americans the border is as secure as ever. These events prove it is not.”

***

Sen. John Cornyn criticized President Obama for creating a “human magnet” with his unlawful approach to immigration enforcement, but admitted that Americans had a duty to care for the children that were flooding into the country.

“They need to be taken care of, I mean they’ve been left, basically dumped at America’s doorstep, and we need to treat them compassionately we need to make sure they get the care they need,” Cornyn explained to reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday afternoon…

“If the message is that America’s door is open to anybody and everyone who wants to come here, people are going to flood in,” Cornyn said. “In this case some of the most vulnerable that you can imagine.”…

Cornyn did not say whether or not the children should be deported.

***

But the childrens’ arrivals already have been tagged by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., as “administration-made” and are happening at a critical time. These summer months were to be the last chance for the House GOP to act on immigration reform before Obama took some presidential action on immigration…

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said the humanitarian concerns should come first.

“I think we are struggling to find how to handle the situation because it’s a serious one involving children, the most vulnerable of all people,” Rubio said in an interview with CBS. He said he can relate to the situation having seen mass migrations from Haiti and Cuba.

***

“We need a president who is willing to uphold the law,” [Ted] Cruz said. “On issue after issue the Obama Administration has openly ignored, defied, and unilaterally tried to change the law. With respect to securing the border, the Obama Administration has handcuffed the courageous men and women who serve in Border Patrol. Morale in ICE is at an all-time low because the political operatives leading this Administration are preventing them from doing their job and upholding the law.”

He continued, “Just a few months before the last election the president illegally and unconstitutionally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people illegally. If the president wants to change federal immigration laws, the Constitution lays out a way to do so–you go and make your case to Congress and you convince Congress to change the laws…unfortunately for President Obama, following the Constitutional structure is apparently too cumbersome. One of the consequences were seeing on the border is a humanitarian crisis that is a direct consequence of Obama’s lawlessness.”

***

“It’s a humanitarian disaster; frankly I have no good answer to it,” he said to reporters on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

McCain said that he didn’t think that the illegal children should be allowed to stay, asserting that it would have been better if they hadn’t crossed the border in the first place. He also criticized the false message of amnesty to illegal immigrants which was drawing them to cross before immigration reform passed…

“It’s terrible, it’s terrible,” he said. “And it is harming our chances of getting comprehensive immigration reform done because people are so angry about this.”

***

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…

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.

***

Central and South Americans quickly figured out Obama was lying. If he had the power not to deport DACA eligibles illegal immigrants, he has the power to not deport anyone. So families started swarming to the U.S. The number of unaccompanied minors who cross the border illegally doubled the year Obama announced DACA and is set to quadruple this year…

“I think one thing that we can do is to be as clear as possible about the law and about what the consequences are for making a decision like that,” Earnest said. “Those individuals are not eligible for the deferred action, executive action that was announced a couple years ago,” [White House spokesman Josh] Earnest said.

But when asked if Obama would deport those children arriving today, Earnest equivocated. “The law does require that we render assistance to those children and that is a process that begins with DHS when they are detained,” he said. “And then they go through a process to determine whether they are going to be sent back to another country, how they’ll be sent back to another country, or how that process is otherwise resolved.”

In other words, “Keep on coming, Obama will let you stay.”

***

I don’t mean to suggest that Earnest or Munoz or others in the White House are lying. I’m confident that they really believe that their policies have nothing to do with the border deluge, because to believe otherwise would create too much cognitive dissonance. Thus the steps needed to reduce the DACA Disaster at the border – i..e, changes in the administration’s permissive approach to immigration enforcement — are simply beyond them.

This suggests that the White House will try to ameliorate the situation in a way that avoids the unacceptable option of actually enforcing immigration law. That suggests a supply-side solution — pressuring Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador to keep people from leaving and pressuring the Mexicans to do more to stop them from transiting their country. But this won’t work; the governments there have neither the incentive nor the capacity to do our job of immigration control for us.

Which means this could get worse before it gets better.

williamg on June 10, 2014 at 11:02 PM

Kerry, Obama, recent visits to Mexico to commiserate there about issues-unrevealed to the public.

These latest “surgers” from nations other-than-Mexico are traveling THROUGH Mexico to get to the US border. The US pays Mexico billions every year to fund Mexico’s military force AND included in that is to fund MEXICO’S SOUTHERN BORDER against illegal immigration.

So Mexico’s involved in this latest effort to scam US citizenship. It ought to concern all Americans who in the US govt. is participating in this (and it does, obviously, concern many based upon the support for VA’s ouster of Cantor).

They’re here uninvited (officially, at least, sure appears to be a covert invitation, however) and they’re certainly an invasive number of foreign nationals.

I think they should be promptly sent back to wherever they originated: and let the political complaints fly afterward, but the point is, they are being transported after arriving, so why not back to their originating countries?

And, then, you are told that you have to make adjustments to your culture, your principles, and your traditions. Did I demand that you guys start driving on the LEFT side of the road when I came here?

Multi-Kulti, ya know?

Imagine that you invite John and Mary Smith to stay at your home temporarily as your guests. For the first few days, everyone and everything is fine. Then, one evening about a week later, you return home from work and are immediately met by blaring music when you open the door to your car. Once inside your home, you find dirty clothes on every floor in the house. Dirty dishes are stacked in the kitchen sink and others remain on the table. You are distressed to find dozens of cats running around defecating everywhere partly because you are an allergy sufferer. The stench is overwhelming.

Seeking to get some information on what is going on, you follow the sound of the television down to the basement. Once there, you find John sitting in his boxers on the sofa with a beer in hand. While questioning him, he continuously burps, farts and scratches his b@lls in front of you. Swallowing your disgust, you ask him what is going on and he tells you to ask Mary.

Before you return upstairs, you ask him, ‘What’s the deal with the cats?’

He responds, ‘As cows are to Hindus, cats are sacred in our religion. We are taught to care for every cat that comes near us. This is especially true when the cats are strays and hungry and cold. Our mortal souls are at grave risk if we do not care for cats like our own children.’

You tell him that the cats need to leave. He tells you, ‘No can do.’

Eventually, you find Mary. She is in the bathroom with your pre-teen daughter. Immediately, you are shocked to find your daughter’s hair bleached blonde and she has a nose ring.

Screaming at Mary, you ask, ‘WTF are you doing?’

She replies, ‘I am only trying to expand Haley’s view of the world. Broaden her world. Let her experience what life is like in other communities.’

You scream at your daughter to go to her room while you run to your bedroom and shut the door because you just can’t take it.

After a little while, you emerge and call a meeting. You explain that this is your home and that you expect guests to, at least, be considerate of others, if only by honouring the rules of the house. When your guests refuse to agree, you say that you will seek their eviction if they do not leave. They advise you that the new laws passed to cultivate the blending of different lifestyles prohibit you from evicting those to your home invited.

After a few more days, you eventually pack your blonde daughter, your son and your husband and move into a hotel to get away from this ‘foreign’ lifestyle. As you luxuriate in the clean and quiet room, you are unable to shake John’s voice and what he said as you were leaving:

‘You told us to make ourselves at home. We have. You really need to open your mind and broaden your sensibilities. Don’t be such a reactionary. It’s a new day in the world. You will just have to learn to change your lifestyle to accommodate ours.’

That, my friends, is what multiculturalism is like on individuals, groups and countries.

redguy on June 10, 2014 at 11:22 PM

but admitted that Americans had a duty to care for the children that were flooding into the country.

These “children” and families that entered the country illegally made it all the way through Mexico without any help from the US. I see no reason that the federal government cannot put them on airplanes and return them to the country of origin. They are not our responsibility.

It’s the same as bewailing all the “children” killed by guns, when the majority of them are teenage gangmembers. Not a good thing, but not the tragedy conveyed when using the word child.

Consider Obama’s description of Bergdahl as someone’s “child.”

Presumably “children” is used to describe illegals under 18, but if they got this far unaccompnied, they should do much better unaccompanied in their own countries where they at least speak the language and their own governments can be responsible for them.

SEND THEM BACK.

Obama Admin Says Cantor’s Support For Amnesty Had Nothing To Do With His Defeat…

And, water isn’t wet.

Via NRO:

A spokesman for President Obama rushed to assure House Republicans that Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.) didn’t actually lose because of his gestures toward Democrats on immigration reform.

“Cantor’s problem wasn’t his position on immigration reform, it was his lack of a position,” Obama advisor Dan Pfeiffer tweeted, citing the success of Senator Lindsay Graham (R., S.C.). “Graham wrote and passed a bill and is winning big.”

Cantor’s campaign sent out direct mail pieces ahead of the election maintaining that he was ”stopping the Obama-Reid plan to give illegal aliens amnesty,” but challenger Dave Brat accused him of supporting “amnesty” based on his support for legislation such as the KIDS Act, which would give citizenship to children brought to the country illegally.

“Where else would these kids go? Again, they’ve been brought here as a minor in many instances having no idea what was going on, knowing no other place than America as home,” Cantor said during a press conference last July.

Send them all back, parents and kids alike, with a booklet that shows how to upend their corrupt governments and set things right so their countries can prosper.

Will they do that? Hell no. Much better to hand these kids and their anchor-parents a DNC manual on how to be a good communist.

Orwell on Socialists and Vegetarians

The first thing that must strike any outside observer is that Socialism, in its developed form is a theory confined entirely to the middle classes. The typical Socialist is not, as tremulous old ladies imagine, a ferocious-looking working man with greasy overalls and a raucous voice. He is either a youthful snob-Bolshevik who in five years time will quite probably have made a wealthy marriage and been converted to Roman Catholicism; or, still more typically, a prim little man with a white-collar job, usually a secret teetotaller and often with vegetarian leanings, with a history of Nonconformity behind him, and, above all, with a social position which he has no intention of forfeiting. This last type is surprisingly common in Socialist parties of every shade; it has perhaps been taken over en bloc from the old Liberal Party. In addition to this there is the horrible — the really disquieting — prevalence of cranks wherever Socialists are gathered together. One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words ‘Socialism’ and ‘Communism’ draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, ‘Nature Cure’ quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.

One day this summer I was riding through Letchworth when the bus stopped and two dreadful-looking old men got on to it. They were both about sixty, both very short, pink, and chubby, and both hatless. One of them was obscenely bald, the other had long grey hair bobbed in the Lloyd George style. They were dressed in pistachio-coloured shirts and khaki shorts into which their huge bottoms were crammed so tightly that you could study every dimple. Their appearance created a mild stir of horror on top of the bus. The man next to me, a commercial traveller I should say, glanced at me, at them, and back again at me, and murmured ‘Socialists’, as who should say, ‘Red Indians’. He was probably right–the I.L.P. [Independent Labor Party] were holding their summer school at Letchworth. But the point is that to him, as an ordinary man, a crank meant a Socialist and a Socialist meant a crank. Any Socialist, he probably felt, could be counted on to have something eccentric about him. And some such notion seems to exist even among Socialists themselves. For instance, I have here a prospectus from another summer school which states its terms per week and then asks me to say ‘whether my diet is ordinary or vegetarian’. They take it for granted, you see, that it is necessary to ask this question. This kind of thing is by itself sufficient to alienate plenty of decent people. And their instinct is perfectly sound, for the food-crank is by definition a person willing to cut himself off from human society in hopes of adding five years on to the life of his carcase; that is, a person out of touch with common humanity.

‘You told us to make ourselves at home. We have. You really need to open your mind and broaden your sensibilities. Don’t be such a reactionary. It’s a new day in the world. You will just have to learn to change your lifestyle to accommodate ours.’

That, my friends, is what multiculturalism is like on individuals, groups and countries.

Resist We Much on June 10, 2014 at 11:21 PM

. . . you had him use the word ‘reactionary.’ It’s loaded and made me think. Strange that multiculturalism is an adaptation that x requires, and only x. That only x countries should annihilate their demographics (and corresponding cultures) — not everyone, not every country, only x countries. And the United States, the UK, the European “West” — these are x countries.

All other people and countries should be left alone, even quarantined as though x is a disease that should be contained.

Tom Foley from WA lost in 94 when he was Speaker:

During his time in the House, Foley repeatedly opposed efforts to impose term limits on Washington state’s elected officials, winning the support of the state’s voters to reject term limits in a 1991 referendum. However, in 1992, a term limit ballot initiative was approved by the state’s voters.

Foley brought suit, challenging the constitutionality of a state law setting eligibility requirements on federal offices. Foley won his suit, with federal courts declaring that states did not have the authority under the United States Constitution to limit the terms of federal officeholders.

However, in Foley’s bid for a 16th term in the House, his Republican opponent, George Nethercutt, used the issue against him, repeatedly citing the caption of the federal case brought by Foley, “Foley against the People of the State of Washington”.
