It’s time to deploy the National Guard to the southern border, says … John Boehner?

posted at 2:41 pm on June 20, 2014 by Allahpundit

He wants the National Guard there not to intercept illegals coming across but to essentially babysit the younger ones who’ve already made it so that the Border Patrol can go back to intercepting people. Still, though: Sending the Guard to the border is something you’d expect to hear from Steve King circa 2007, not John Boehner circa 2014. A Twitter pal blames this on Dave Brat’s big win but I think Brat is less cause than effect. My theory for why he beat Cantor so handily is that the endless stories in righty media lately about thousands of young illegals coming north dovetailed perfectly with his knock on Cantor as a pro-amnesty donor-class crony. Even if Cantor had pulled that race out, the huge surge at the border that Drudge has been touting every day would still be killing Boehner and his hope of passing anything this summer. It’s just too easy to draw a line from Obama’s DACA order in 2012 and the two years of heavy breathing in Congress about comprehensive reform that followed to illegals thinking they’re going to get a pass from ICE if only they can make it here soon enough.

If Boehner doesn’t demand more security now, whatever shred of faith is left on the right that he’ll fight for security as part of a comprehensive deal will disintegrate. So, here we go. From his letter to the president:

The safety of these migrant children is a matter of paramount importance. It is our duty and obligation to enforce the laws of our country while protecting the most vulnerable and ensuring they are healthy and well protected. In that vein, your administration should immediately deploy the National Guard to our southern border. The National Guard is uniquely qualified to respond to such humanitarian crises. They are able to help deal with both the needs of these children and families as well as relieve the border patrol to focus on their primary duty of securing our border.

The State Department must immediately begin discussions with the countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras to ensure that apprehended migrants can be promptly and efficiently returned to their home countries. Long processing times for returns are directly resulting in overcrowded conditions in Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Health and Human Services (HHS) resources. Additionally, the State Department should work with these countries to design and execute an aggressive communications effort to fully articulate the dangers and struggles children and families will face if they attempt to migrate to the U.S. Finally, the State Department should also enter into conversations with the Mexican government about its ability to secure its southern border. The lax enforcement at Mexico’s borders gives a free pass to immigrants heading north.

Once these immigrants have reached the U.S. and are apprehended, they must be processed by DHS and then the family units must be prepared for return to their home country. Your administration should immediately deploy additional personnel, including Special Assistant U.S. Attorneys, immigration judges and support staff to assist in the processing and removal of these aliens. DHS must find a way to ensure that apprehended adults and their family members do in fact appear for their deportation hearings. We believe that all families should be detained in clean, safe facilities that are in compliance with existing federal statute and case law. Until adequate housing is made available, Alternatives to Detention (ATD) should be deployed to ensure compliance with court appearances and deportation hearings.

The politics of this are poisonous enough that even Obama has to pretend he wants the kids sent back to Central America. If Boehner’s flip was all about Dave Brat, presumably O would be leaping at the chance to say “comprehensive reform is dead in the House after Eric Cantor’s defeat, therefore I must act immediately to ease our deportation policies.” He’s not doing that, though, because as the illegal surge at the border gets more attention, he has to start worrying about red-state Democrats taking an even more severe beating this fall. That’s one reason why I was so curious after Cantor lost to see what O would do now about that deportation order he’s been promising the left for the past few months. Initially I thought he’d hold off until August, when Congress is in recess and the public’s not paying much attention to issue the order. The more news there is about tens of thousands of child illegals flowing in, though, the more I think he might decide to postpone his order until after the midterms so as not to trigger a backlash. Illegal-immigration advocates won’t like that, but who cares? For all the whining they do about the “deporter-in-chief,” the truth is that Democrats are about as happy with O’s immigration policies today as they’ve been over the past four years:

gal

Exit question: If Boehner really cared about border security, now would be a fine time to enact a “security first” bill in the House providing the Border Patrol with more resources, no? The head of the BP’s union says the crisis is now so bad down south that “de facto amnesty is here.” Illegals are being shipped east because border authorities simply don’t have the facilities to house all of them where they’re caught. That’s fertile ground for Boehner to act, if he’s serious about this. Harry Reid will kill the bill in the Senate, but that’s fine. The GOP can use that to attack red-state Dems this fall. So why hasn’t Boehner introduced anything yet?

On January 29, 2014, the Federal Government posted an ad on their BizOpps website seeking escorts for unaccompanied illegal alien children. If this doesn’t prove that the entire mess with all the illegals flooding our country was planned by this administration, nothing ever will. [Emphasis added.]

Jan. 29, 2014:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has a continuing and mission critical responsibility for accepting custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from U.S. Border Patrol and other Federal agencies and transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States. ICE is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport. The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air. [Emphasis added.]

Jon Justice from 104.1 KQTH in Tucson, AZ said via Twitter that many of the kids didn’t seem completely unhappy with being in the detention facility. When asked if it was because they were in a safe place and being fed better than they’re used to, he replied, “Actually its because they were headed to NY, New Jersey and Maine to meet family and knew they would be going soon, for free.” Justice added, “From the kids and what the agents were saying, most came for some type of ‘amnesty’ not because of conditions in Central [America].” 104.1 KQTH posted several photos—provided to them by one official photographer on site—on the station’s website.

The issue was addressed at a Miami-Dade County School Board meeting on Wednesday, knowing those kids would end up in the school system.

“We have received about 300 students from Honduras over the past few months so recognizing the challenge, that crisis, we’re asking federal got to intervene,” said Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho. [Bolding added.]

I used to think so, but this issue appears to be turning toxic even for Ds. Only 31% approve of Dear Leader on immigration, which would seem to indicate only the hard left.

So why hasn’t Boehner introduced anything yet?

Because he’s a coward and an alcoholic and the NSA probably has dirt on him.

Thanks for the link.
Those were excellent videos. I was drawn in and felt enormous empathy for those citizens. I’d be proud to be their neighbor.

Wish more like them would be in Congress and stand up to the out of control govt.

Great contribution to the fabric of our nation, too, how their criminal parents treat them like flaming paper bags of dog do left on porches by prankster teens on Halloween.

Another outrageous and traitorous act.
Another simple solution. Investigate who originated the program..why it was researched, what the end result was supposed to accomplish..where and how the funding was established, why was it kept from the public and who and which organizations were tapped for their input and manpower.

Simple, Level 1 inquiries. Who, what, when, where and why.
Why is this not obvious? “We” ..as the people, as legal citizens, are expected to answer for whatever the government wants us to answer for, from the most simple and mundane expenditures via the IRS, to asking their permission to construct a simple building on your own property. Anything can be made a “choke point”. You have the “right” to do it..just jump thru this hoop…and then maneuver that bureaucratic check list..then submit that fee.

You’re welcome. Breitbart has done a great job of covering the border crisis.

I feel badly for those people too. Such a huge turnout for an area that does not have a large population.

That’s why I think this is becoming a very toxic political issue for both parties. The illegals are being shipped all over the country.

I think it was on OReilly’s show that I heard loads of them were sent to MA without the knowledge of the governor. Deval Patrick didn’t know they were coming? Amazing.

I read that the militia are on their way to build a human fence.
Near Laredo, Texas if I recall correctly. Also, supposedly there
are already 500 militia on the border of Arizona.

If so, good for them. It is time for the citizens to take control
when the government refuse to do the job.

The National Guard is uniquely qualified to respond to such humanitarian crises. They are able to help deal with both the needs of these children and families as well as relieve the border patrol to focus on their primary duty of securing our border.

Bad idea. IOW, the NG soldiers can be court martialed for allowing any leaks concerning the concentration camps.

We already settled the posse commitas issue which allows them to defend the border. Governors must not agree to send troops to babysit.

Lets build the next refugee center on the Mexico side of the border. The Mexican government might take this problem more seriously once they begin to understand this as a threat to their own sovereignty instead of ours.

What’s wrong with letting a blogger know you appreciate the work they do?

There’s a rumor that breitbart is making a big money play for AP, and Noah(pro-amnesty, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage) was hired not to replace Erika, but to replace AP and take his “RINO-side” perspective. Noah as a replacement for Erika doesn’t make much sense, since he doesn’t match any of her beat. Noah does match what elitist Salem suits might imagine AP’s appeal is. But, AP, for all his atheism/gay marriage support is a genuine conservative on most issues and most importantly doesn’t have contempt for the base when he disagrees. I’m happy to say that I appreciate his work and hope this rumor is false.

Nothingburger letter from an incompetent drunk who thinks it’ll make him look hawkish.

If it ain’t legislation curtailing this sh!t, it doesn’t count!

What a worthless poser.

*slight correction, I don’t overly care if it’s true or false. But if AP makes more money on the free market elsewhere, I’ll just read him there rather here.

I’ve been suggesting this for OVER TEN YEARS now but here it is again:

The US should be sending quarterly invoices to all countries that emit who later become illegal aliens in the US, for all costs associated with their presence in the US.

I originally suggested that this be directed toward Mexico, due to Mexico’s one-third adult population who already arrived here, most of them illegally, but I now suggest this be applied to all nations sending their populations to the US by way of illegal entry and/or stay in the US.

Educational costs, medical costs — including all those births by all those illegal alien mothers in US hospitals/clinics — food, shelter, police, taxis, supplies, all of it: send invoices to their native countries for all of that that the US is spending on foreign nationals in the US illegally.

We KNOW who they are, we DO already have a reliable head-ID-count, so start billing their countries, even if they’re later deported.

Thanks. I had not heard that before, but it wouldn’t be surprising if true.

cat_owner on June 20, 2014 at 4:19 PM

I’d be all RAH-RAH for this is I didn’t KNOW that this administration will effin’ CRUCIFY THE FIRST NATIONAL GUARDSMAN WHO SHOOTS one of these criminals when they attack him. They haven’t become inured to the daily assaults and chains on their wrists like the Border Patrol has AND they are NOT “trained law enforcement professionals”.

They’re soldiers. It WILL end badly for one or more of these guys and the illegal horde will continue ~ WITH ALL THEIR “HUMANITARIAN” PROTECTIONS INTACT ~ to roll as if NOTHING happened.

tree hugging sister on June 20, 2014 at 4:19 PM

This Administration planned this INVASION a long time ago.Why do you suppose DHS purchased all of that ammo a while back?Why do you suppose agencies like BLM and other”non military”agencies are now the new National Police?The objective here IS Marshall Law.Believe it….DC just hasn’t gotten the memo yet.Idiots all.

Breitbart uses POS Disqus, so I won’t.

CNN interviewing Greg Abbott right now. Showing pictures too of the deplorable conditions going on in the detention centers.

Allah Pundit, I noticed yesterday that there were only three articles by you (not including QOTD).

You’re not going to bail on us, are you?

I hope it’s just a well deserved rest from your heavy workload.

I don’t think people realize how much work writing is. it isn’t just the writing and getting the punctuation and spelling right. They also have to understand the subject and get the information right. It must be like putting together a newspaper used to be in the old days.
