Quotes of the day

President Obama and his aides have repeatedly sought to dispel the rumors driving thousands of children and teens from Central America to cross the U.S. border each month with the expectation they will be given a permiso and allowed to stay.

But under the Obama administration, those reports have proved increasingly true.

The number of immigrants under 18 who were deported or turned away at ports of entry fell from 8,143 in 2008, the last year of the George W. Bush administration, to 1,669 last year, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement data released under a Freedom of Information Act request…

The previously unavailable deportation data are likely to fuel the political debate over whether Obama administration policies are partly responsible for the 52,000 children and teens who have surrendered to or been caught by Border Patrol agents since last October, spurring fresh concerns about U.S. border security and immigration law.

A border patrol agent was diagnosed with scabies after processing undocumented immigrants in Otay Mesa, California, the agent’s union representative said. Ronald Zermeno, health and safety director for the National Border Control Council union, said the agent told him that he observed several people with open sores while screening them in preparation to be released to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Scabies is caused by a mite that burrows into skin and lays eggs, causing an intense itching and rash, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In a letter to the chief patrol agent of San Diego’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Zermeno said border patrol agents processing the undocumented immigrants were told that those arriving in California had been pre-screened for health conditions. Agents in California, however, were not advised to decontaminate themselves or their uniforms, he added. “This demonstrates that we are not properly trained to identify infectious disease and to properly respond when we suspect a disease,” Zermeno said. Agents are “encouraged to use personal protective gear including latex or non-latex gloves, long-sleeve shirts, and to take precaution, including frequent hand washing,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said in a statement without commenting on the specific case.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) told Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer Sunday morning that he’d had enough of congressional Republicans criticizing the Obama administration over immigration policies when they’d refused to take up the bipartisan immigration reform bill passed by the Senate last year.

“I am really getting fed up with some of the critics of this administration, particularly from House Republicans,” Durbin said. “They had the opportunity for one solid year to call the immigration reform bill, and yet they refused to. Now they’re arguing we need more enforcement at the borders and a lot of other things? When are they going to accept their responsibility to govern?

A top United States general in charge of protecting the southern border says he’s been unable to combat the steady flow of illegal drugs, weapons and people from Central America, and is looking to Congress for urgent help.

Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command, has asked Congress this year for more money, drones and ships for his mission – a request unlikely to be met. Since October, an influx of nearly 100,000 migrants has made the dangerous journey north from Latin America to the United States border. Most are children, and three-quarters of the unaccompanied minors have traveled thousands of miles from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

“In comparison to other global threats, the near collapse of societies in the hemisphere with the associated drug and [undocumented immigrant] flow are frequently viewed to be of low importance,” Kelly told Defense One. “Many argue these threats are not existential and do not challenge our national security. I disagree.”

***

Democrats, always on the lookout for an opportunity to swell the dependency rolls, turn a blind eye to this invasion; their main interest is in normalizing the status of illegals as quickly as possible. Republicans, apparently determined to live up to the caricature of being unable to tell one brown Spanish-speaking person from another, are in a panic that they will lose the Hispanic vote unless they turn a blind eye to what is not only systematic lawlessness but an all-out assault on the sovereignty of the country. Little wonder, then, that federal plans to relocate illegals have been met with vigorous and sometimes rowdy protests by locals.

There is perhaps no one who appreciates the meaning of a border better than an illegal immigrant. The line that divides the United States from what is south of it is the most significant demarcation in their lives. And while it is no argument for failing to enforce the law, one cannot blame those who are willing to risk and endure so much to escape life in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, etc. But we can blame those who fail to enforce the law. We can blame the Obama administration and corrupt law-enforcement officials for actively subverting the law. And we can certainly blame businessmen who encourage chaos, violence, and human trafficking in the service of their own narrow and slightly pathetic interests: Surely, busboys and dishwashers are not so scarce in South Carolina that one must effectively get into bed with the cartels in order to get the tables cleared.

Unhappily, the combination of interests linked to immigration lawlessness — the progressives’ dependency agenda and the Chamber of Commerce’s self-interest — make this a very difficult battle to win. On the matter of illegal immigration, as on so many similar issues, we are effectively governed by criminals.

Asked the host, “Is the priority that we have to do right by these children or do we have to find a way to clamp down on the border?”

“Well, there’s the issue,” said Johnson. “We have to do right by the children. I have personally encountered enough of them to know that we have to do right by the children.”

“We have to do right by the children.”

Anybody seen photos of a “relocation” center lately? All those hardy, arrogant, posing males are “children?”

Instead of speaking in ridiculous generalities, why not give us the truth? Give us a breakdown by age, sex, nationality and… for good measure, prior criminal history (if known).

How long does the U.S. government have to blow smoke up our collective backsides before we get fed up? Are we smarter than a third grader? They apparently don’t think so.

Sagal started her career in show business as a singer and songwriter. In 1973, she worked as a backing vocalist for various singers, including Bob Dylan and Tanya Tucker. In 1976, while a member of The Group With No Name, she contributed to the album Moon over Brooklyn (on which she was credited as “Katie Sagal”). She was a member of Bette Midler’s backup group The Harlettes in 1978, and again from 1982–83. She performed backing vocals on the self-titled Gene Simmons solo album, the Molly Hatchet album Take No Prisoners and on Olivia Newton-John’s 1985 single “Soul Kiss.” Sagal also provided the vocals for “Loose Cannons”, the theme song for the movie featuring Gene Hackman and Dan Aykroyd in 1990. The song featured her singing most of the song, while Aykroyd sang the chorus and did some background impersonations from the movie.

The wonderful thing about America is that people are free to give their money to the charity they choose, religious or secular.

The problem is the fact that Liberals want to give OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY to the “Humanitarian Issue” THEY CHOOSE.

My take: Lindsey Graham Joins Fellow Liberals in Proclaiming Illegal Alien Invasion “A Humanitarian Issue.” THEIR “Compassion”…OUR Money.

Speaking of unreported news items (ok, I wanted to transition to be a little smoother), there’s this story about a beating death at the San Antonio Amtrak station. Apparently the only place it’s being reported is Breitbart and a railfan site I read has some of the moonbats there foaming at the mouth that Breitbart made it up. I would have said it’s more like too politically incorrect for most media to report but it is interesting that no one else has picked it up.

Yeah, I know. But the bright side on that is that the policies being implemented by the Obama admin are having a negative impact on different people in different ways…healthcare for some, employment for other, immigration for others…..

What would be great, if we could find a way to do it and get the message out, is to link it all together so these people who are being impacted realize that this all stems from socialist-style policies being pushed by Liberals. (Forget attaching to Obama…attach it to Liberalism/Progressivism)

If we could succeed in even that much, G2M, it could swing a lot of people our way.

Horrible, wonder why tree media isn’t reporting it?

Finally MySA printed something on it. A greatly sanitized version. Someone asked them why it took them so long, seeing as how it happened about 3-4 days ago and they said a lot of their reporters took a long holiday.

I have someone who died in 1917. It says he belonged to the C.M.B.A. Anybody know what that is? He was catholic and a shoemaker.

nd I am quite sick of Dick Durban and his ilk who insist on amnesty for illegal immigrants over and over and then blame others for it not happening, and I am sick of his and their refusal to uphold American law as written, their abject dereliction of duty, and their breaking their oath of office. We do not have to ask when they are going to accept their responsibility to govern, the answer is never and it is answered repeatedly. And I am quite sick of his supporters and his party as well. They are traitors, all of them are traitors, and they think and speak of only one thing, their Party. Party. Party. Party uber alles. And I am sick of it and sick of them.
