Quotes of the day

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel have been directed to no longer refer to illegal immigrant children crossing the border alone as “UACs” (unaccompanied alien children).

Instead these individuals are to be referred to as “unaccompanied children” in official correspondence, according to an internal ICE email obtained by the Center for Immigration Studies and shared with Breitbart News.

“This was briefed earlier today during he (sic) command and staff meeting,” an email sent to ICE personnel reads. “It has been requested that in correspondence regarding unaccompanied children, They (sic) not be referred to as UACs. The term UAC should not be used in official correspondence.”

President Barack Obama plans to highlight a positive side of the immigration debate by presiding over an Independence Day citizenship ceremony for service members who signed up to defend the U.S. even though they weren’t American citizens.

A total of 25 members of the Armed Forces will spend the Fourth of July as American citizens after the deputy secretary for homeland security delivers the oath of allegiance at a White House ceremony on Friday…

“They signed up to serve, to sacrifice, potentially to give their lives for the security of this country even though they weren’t yet Americans. That’s how much they love this country,” Obama said in announcing the ceremony earlier this week. “They were prepared to fight and die for an America they did not yet fully belong to. I think they’ve earned their stripes in more ways than one.”

***

President Barack Obama is facing mounting calls from Republicans to take a firsthand look at the immigration emergency at the U.S.-Mexico border, putting him on the spot concerning what he has called the “humanitarian crisis” of tens of thousands of unaccompanied children flooding in from Central America.

“If he doesn’t come to the border, I think it’s a real reflection of his lack of concern of what’s really going on there,” declared Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016.

The White House said Thursday that Obama currently has no plans to visit the border when he travels to Texas next week, primarily to fundraise for Democratic congressional candidates. A trip to the border could result in awkward optics for the president, who would be unlikely to meet with youngsters he’s seeking to deport and would risk upsetting immigration advocates who oppose the deportations if he were to meet with border patrol agents or other law enforcement.

***

Texas officials appealed to the Obama administration on Thursday to secure the U.S.-Mexico border once and for all as waves of illegal immigrant children overwhelm the system, with one lawmaker saying U.S. military bases effectively have been transformed into camps to handle the influx.

“Our military bases are turning into refugee camps. I never thought I’d see this in the United States of America,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said…

Both McCaul and Perry said the solution is to send a tough message by deporting those caught crossing the border. They argued that allowing the migrants to stay is not the humanitarian response, despite what some advocacy groups say.

“These children are often subjected to beatings, starvation, sexual assault and are at risk of being trafficked,” McCaul said, describing the conditions of those who make the journey.

***

Opposition and criticism are building against Dallas County Commissioner Clay Jenkins’ plan to bring to Dallas 2,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America who crossed the Texas border

Judge Jenkins said today that officials have consulted with neighbors around the three selected sites where the children will stay. He says no county tax dollars will be used to house the children here, because the federal government will pick up the tab.

Republicans like Cathie Adams of the social conservative group Texas Eagle Forum don’t believe it.

“We’re talking about housing, we’re talking about food, we’re talking about educating, we’re talking about medicating. This is a huge expense.”

***

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) believes the border crisis is not a national security threat, despite gangsters having already been apprehended along the United States-Mexico border.

In fact, Jackson Lee waved a bag of lollipops during a Thursday House Homeland Security Field Hearing in McAllen, Texas, and said she took bags of such lollipops to the illegal immigrant children in detention centers during recent visits.

***

Protesters who successfully blocked immigrant detainees from reaching a Border Patrol processing facility in Murrieta earlier this week say they’re ready to do it again should federal immigration officials attempt a similar drop-off

“We’re going to be there,” [Carol Schlaepfer] vowed. “We’re going to do the same thing, and hopefully with greater numbers of people.”…

However, the buses that arrived at Murrieta on Tuesday weren’t the first and likely won’t be the last, Amaya said. Immigration officials said before Tuesday’s protests that buses were expected to arrive every 72 hours, but have since declined to elaborate…

“This was not victory. It was a loss for the city of Murrieta, for the community that we live in and love,” Dudley said. “It made this extremely compassionate community look heartless and uncaring.”

***

Ranchers along the Rio Grande say immigrant smugglers threaten them constantly.

One Cameron County rancher said smugglers ordered him to look the other way or face the consequences.

The landowner said smugglers are using trails on his property to bring illegal immigrants into the country.

The rancher said he fears for his safety.

“You don’t see anything; you don’t talk to anybody,” he said.

He said smugglers stop at nothing to get the immigrants across.

***

At a raucous town hall meeting in Murrieta Wednesday night, city officials had a message for residents who a day earlier successfully blocked immigrant detainees from entering a local Border Patrol processing facility: Blame the federal government.

At the meeting, during which roughly 750 area residents peppered local representatives and law enforcement personnel with their concerns over plans to move detained immigrants through the facility, Murrieta Mayor Alan Long reiterated the need for the federal government to do more to address the influx of undocumented immigrants…

Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Stone hit the national government harder, saying that there was a “lack of political will to protect our borders,” adding that the issue was a federal responsibility. He publicly demanded that Congress take action to secure the border.

Stone’s remarks were met by applause and cheers of “USA! USA!” from the crowd.

***

***

Nobody is doing any of these children the slightest favor by delaying a rapid return to their countries of origin, which in many cases is not Mexico.

Allowing them to remain here will only encourage the next group of individuals to undertake the same life-threatening journey.

Those who have come must be sent back to demonstrate, in no uncertain terms, that risking their lives to cross Mexico and enter our country simply isn’t worth it.

Nope. I got one tables saw that’s ok. But I’m refurbishing a Powermatic 10 inch Artisan. Still not cabinet saw level quality but the cuts are fairly precise. Got router table as a TS extension wing so the TS LS made sense for me.

Parmenides on July 5, 2014 at 4:26 AM

going2mars on July 5, 2014 at 4:26 AM

Left over pizza is sometimes even better than fresh.

Parmenides on July 5, 2014 at 4:27 AM

BMore, I will be able to cut wood now to unheard of precision.

I’m going to charge by the micron now. Should pay the beer bill.

Parmenides on July 5, 2014 at 4:30 AM

I will be able to position my fence to 1/32nd of a micron.

Parmenides on July 5, 2014 at 4:21 AM

my router setup has a set of 12/1 angled wedges
and a fine thread jack screw..
so yes a 1/32 of a inch sliding plates…
then I dial in the glue gaps by the thousandth of an inch…
usually I go with .008″ ..
when you work wood to the 3rd decimal place..
you have to think tool size and glue seems…
if you buy a router bit from mexico say a .250 bit..
it might only be .248 or .247 so a box joint will not go together properly..
if you buy a quality Austrian or German bit at .250 it really is .250..
so you can think glue only..

going2mars on July 5, 2014 at 4:30 AM

going2mars on July 5, 2014 at 4:30 AM

Yep. A few thou off on each finger joint can add up to sumpin awful.

Parmenides on July 5, 2014 at 4:32 AM

Parmenides on July 5, 2014 at 4:26 AM

gotta love Powermatic…
I have the 6 inch joiner and the stand up mortise..
love em both …quality..
my TS is a Ryobi 10″ with the sliding table..
good for small things .. like inlay making..
but I would like a quality TS… they are money..

going2mars on July 5, 2014 at 4:35 AM

g2m,

I think the thing that is over looked is the speed of positioning. Everyone focuses on accuracy but nudging a TS fence takes a lot of time.

Not anymore though.

Parmenides on July 5, 2014 at 4:36 AM

but I would like a quality TS… they are money..

going2mars on July 5, 2014 at 4:35 AM

Good morning ladies and gents. It looks like some of us had a fun fourth. It was sunny but quite windy here but the wind died down to nothing in the evening and it was perfect for fireworks. Our local one is tonight at the end of the fest. I live about halfway between 2 villages but I’ve come to identify more with one of them.

What do you make out of wood? Our curator is very talented. Of course he has equipment. He took wood from the floor of the old school they tore down and made cutting boards to sell at the museum. We sold all of them. I don’t know if he does inlay though.

crankyoldlady on July 5, 2014 at 5:20 AM

I’ve just read the ‘Divided Nation’ article run in “Salon”.

Fanaticism writ large in florid, purple prose, is no substitute for journalism. Objectivity, reason, and strict adherence to fact are the hallmarks of good journalism.

The expression of one ‘journalist’s’ personal animosities summed up in an hysterical diatribe directed at his fellow Americans, particularly the one group the left deems fair game as the target for bigotry, racism, and prejudice, in terms that wouldn’t be applied to any other racial or ethnic group by that same writer, and accented by his view that the economic system that allows him to live quite well and make his living penning work that a high school freshman would blush to submit with his own name on it, is corrupt and failed, without offering a single shred of documented evidence to support those claims, is not journalism, either. It is a rant better suited to a fanatic on a soap box in the public square.

Now, someone tell “Salon”.

Facts aren’t important to that kind. I always say liberals are unable to experience reality. They live all the time in wonderland. Marxists are another matter. They know reality and how to exploit it.

crankyoldlady on July 5, 2014 at 5:27 AM

I love mission style Stickley or Green and Green works
but the inlay part comes from my greatgrandfather..
its how we got in the country.. in early 1900′s..
when the boat landed in NYC the man told him
“we have enough drunken irish micks already”
so they got sent to Canada…
at that time you needed a job a skill and a sponsor..
he had no job or sponsor..
all he had was skill…he did inlay in the tunbridge ware style like these.

http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=tunbridge+ware+boxes&qpvt=tunbridge+ware+boxes&FORM=IGRE

after living in Canada for 3 years Ford hired him to do
custom work on the Lincoln cars.. desks and bars in the backseat type things..
so that’s how we became americans…
I try and continue this method of inlay…

That ‘writer’ unwittingly serves as an example of what really has gone wrong in our society. He epitomizes the erosion of professionalism and the personification of partisan, deep seated, disdain for his fellow Americans. He has allowed his ideology to make of his fellow Americans ‘the enemy’ and he casts them in his writing as ‘the other’. Ironically, the thing the left continually harps about in others. He’s a danger to his own people.

Good morning, COL. I’m just winding up my workday. I hope you have a wonderful day. :)

going2mars on July 5, 2014 at 5:31 AM

That’s really neat. The Germans here did a lot of wood working. Not as much fancy stuff but it was something they could do in winter when there wasn’t as much farm work. Some of them carved wooden shoes. Even more recently a lot of them worked as carpenters. It’s a favorite profession for actors too since it’s something they can plug into when they don’t have jobs. My friend says we have such a thing for wood here because our ancestors used to worship trees.

I like the mission type stuff too. My grandparents didn’t feel that way. The furniture they left me is more victorian. But I’m stuck with it.

going2mars on July 5, 2014 at 5:57 AM

Isn’t the wood more stable when it gets old? It seems to me unless you dry it artificially it must take a long time to dry. But that’s just an impression I have.

crankyoldlady on July 5, 2014 at 6:00 AM

G3, did you ever connect up with that guy dil something? I left him a message on another thread but I don’t know if he saw it.

crankyoldlady on July 5, 2014 at 6:04 AM

yes time helps..
but the moisture it still has when made is what I was talking about..
300 years ago they didn’t know what we do about it..
I have digital humidity gage.. we can kiln dry it.. moisture meters..
so many things I just don’t think the old masters had
available to them…

Rush was right. The Federal Government has become legalized coyotes. I heard a story about this one 35 year old invader from El Salvador who had a coyote dump her at the border, and ICE dropped her off in Miami 2 weeks ago, telling her to appear before a hearing in a month. This Woman is now in Jacksonville. I guess she will miss that hearing

Legalized? These people are not doing anything legal even if they are government.

How many times do we hear from the Left that our military can’t fix the world’s problems? But we can import everyone here? And apparently pay their home countries for taking them. Sounds kind of like slavery to me. I am sure our child service providers will be glad to continue their bang up jobs of watching our own needy children in the spare time they have.

He says no county tax dollars will be used to house the children here, because the federal government will pick up the tab.

It would appear to me that some people…a lot of people need to get a grip on where the federal government gets their money. I’m not sure which makes me angrier, that they think we are this stupid or that there are this many “we” that are stupid. Let’s start assessing an illegal alien tax that no one is exempt from and you’ll see a change of minds.

Cindy Munford on July 5, 2014 at 7:53 AM

Just like you have to stop paying people to stay out of work, you have to stop letting illegals stay. Give them a nice plane ride to talk about the rest of their lives. Maybe they will work to come here legally.

Illegal Immigrants do not respect the laws of our land, to begin with. Why would that change, if they were given the rights of citizenship? – KJ

My take: The Illegal Alien Invasion: “…That I Will Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America…”

Thanks Kennedy, I’ll talk with him when I get the chance (if either of you see this). Going back and forth to the crappy nursing home is the order of the day until I can get my wife moved to a good rehab place. Going2mars is 45 mi north of Detroit, I’m about 60 miles west of Detroit. That may be too much of a haul for anyone to make, I couldn’t ask that someone make a trip like that. I do appreciate it though :)

Got to get busy here but I’ll be back later tonight and try to catch G2 to talk.

Thank you!

It’s like back when Cuba sent us their flotsum and jetsum. Those countries are unloading their undesireables on us.

Excellent report on the impact of illegal immigration in my state of NC

After a brief hiatus that coincided with the worst of the economic recession, North Carolina’s illegal alien population is on the rise again. There are about 410,000 illegal aliens in the state, 25,000 (6.5%) more than in 2007. This concentration of illegal aliens — 4.3 percent of the overall population — is higher than the national average of 3.9 percent, and ranks North Carolina as the 11th most impacted state in the country.

Illegal immigration costs North Carolina taxpayers about $2 billion per year. That amounts to about $578 for every household headed by a native-born or naturalized U.S. citizen.
