Report: 300,000 Central American immigrants heading to U.S.

posted at 7:21 pm on July 7, 2014 by Noah Rothman

This is… troubling.

The ongoing and apparently worsening calamity at the southern border as protected individuals like Central American women and children stream across the border is not merely a humanitarian and political crisis but a health crisis as well. While the influx of immigrants is not being curtailed, the health risks associated with that inflow are apparently being mitigated.

“It’s getting better,” said U.S. Border Patrol Council Shawn Moran in an interview with San Antonio’s WOAI. “Everyone is being screened and receiving medical care.”

That’s nice, but buried at the bottom of that report was a deeply disturbing revelation that the federal government estimates approximately 300,000 prospective illegal immigrants are currently on their way to the American border.

In fact, one source told Newsradio 1200 WOAI as many as 300,000 Central American immigrants are now ‘en route’ to the United States through Mexico, and the Department of Defense has asked military bases around the country to find 180 barracks, holding centers, and other facilities to house the flood which is not expected to stop coming any time soon.

“The numbers are still overwhelming and we are sending people everywhere just to get them processed, just due to the huge numbers,” Moran said.

This report comes on the heels of a confrontation at Murrieta, California where the federal government attempted and failed to relocate and process some of the 240,000 migrants and 52,000 unaccompanied immigrant children who have been captured crossing the border in recent months. Murrieta residents greeted a busload of illegal immigrant women and children with anti-illegal immigration protests and signs recently, forcing that bus to reroute an hour south to San Diego.

If WOAI’s report, one that has thus far not been substantiated by other outlets, turns out to be true, how many cities will react to that deluge of illegal migrants in the same way that the citizens of Murrieta did?

The illegal aliens should be processed and housed in communities where Obama has been having fundraisers.

Let them put their homes where their money is.

who have been captured crossing the border in recent months.

Noah you RINO imbecile, they were not captured crossing the border, they walked up and asked if they could come in and the Border Patrol/ICE took them into custody right at the border. Cheese and Rice man, I bet you actually believe that Lois Lerner’s hard drive crash was accidental don’t you?

Never will happen.

More likely Obumbles will be insisting we make room for them ourselves. I mean, every homeowner has a spare room that can easily house a dozen of ‘em with kitchen privileges. Am I right?

For your health’s sake, though, you will probably have to house train them on the proper use of the commode.

Obama insists that ‘fences don’t work’, yet there’s a dandy fence with gates surrounding the White House… and when an unarmed woman with her young daughter strapped into a car seat in the back seat of her SUV inadvertently makes a wrong turn, suffers a panic attack when armed guards rush at her for bumping a security barrier, and tries to simply leave the area, she’s gunned down in a hail of gunfire by security personnel and police in front of her little daughter.

Yet, border patrol agents who are being shot at with high powered rifles across the Rio Grande river are told to ‘stand down’. Border patrol agents who are attacked with rocks and bricks are told to ‘stand down’. And border patrol agents who come under fire from helicopters belonging to the Mexican military are told to ‘stand down’.

Instead of moving to secure the border, border patrol agents are now busy…changing diapers and babysitting children.

No wonder the fence at the border isn’t working.

After all of the countless thousands of our nation’s best…all those brave warriors fought and died in defense of the United States of America, what do you suppose they would think if they knew that there would be a post turtle in the White House so focused on himself and his awesomeness, that he would literally give away our very sovereignty?

Because this is precisely what Barack Hussein Obama has done, my friends. He has opened the floodgates and allowed any and all comers into our inner sanctum…into our communities without so much as a background check or a physical exam.

We are no longer a nation of laws..rather we are a lawless nation. As opposed to being a Constitutional Republic, we have devolved into despotism. Half of us applaud the destruction, and the other half does absolutely nothing about it.

Freedom, Liberty, and American Exceptionalism ended on our watch, folks. Think on that for a while….

I think we need to start supporting line jumpers at the check out. Whether it’s a grocery store or Walmart.. somebody jumps in front of you in line.. they need to be protected. It’s not fair! In fact.. those people who get angry and abusive at line jumpers are just racists ignorant bigots!

Every store in America needs to have large signs at their check-outs.. in fact.. right in front of the store as you walk in.. big ol large sign about 10 feet high with bold letters…”Line Jumpers Welcomed at Check Outs!”

I love line jumpers! The economy was built by people who jump the line! Line jumpers are, truly, better customers than the rest of the people in line! and if a line jumper can some how work a way to make you pay for his groceries or new jeans.. all the better!

Interesting that our federal government seems to think that foreign nationals are the equivalent of stray pets and that the federal government can decide to ‘just keep them’.

how many cities will react to that deluge of illegal migrants in the same way that the citizens of Murrieta did?

Answer: None, because the feds aren’t even giving MAYORS heads up that these illegals are being dumped in their cities. It’s my understanding the only reason this one little city knows is because someone sent an errant email to someone else. So basically nobody will know until the buses are on your street and being emptied of disease-ridden illegals.

Nice. Didn’t think 0bama could POSSIBLY find such a destructive way to destroy this country any more than he already has, but wow… this is definitely going to do the trick AND give the Dems loads of new voters for generations to come. Turn out the lights and shut the door, it’s over.

It’s worse. Infectious tuberculosis is spreading in the camps.

There was a time when there were ‘sanitariums’ in the United States where people with infectious tuberculosis were sent to spend what was left of the rest of their lives, forcibly quarantined.

The disease, which ravages the lungs, eventually drowning the victim on their own fluids, was called ‘consumption’ because, as the victim, wracked with coughing spasms and coughing up blood, would waste away before dying, as if the disease was literally consuming them.

While antibiotics helped to eradicate the disease in this nation, because antibiotics have been widely over prescribed, and largely because people, particularly in the third world regions, didn’t take all of their prescriptions when prescribed antibiotics, but simply stopped taking them as soon as they felt better, the disease and many other infectious diseases, have been rapidly becoming ‘antibiotic resistant’ or ‘drug resistant’, as it’s called, and antibiotics are losing their effectiveness in treating the disease.

If it does, it will be because the imbeciles in the Federal Government drank the kool-aid that the Lame-stream media sold them about California. Murrieta is in rural VERY conservative Southern California. All of California is not liberal progressive as the media claims. Most, geographically speaking, of California is between conservative, and extremely conservative.

The mentality of those in Murrieta isn’t far removed from the mentality that was observed at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada. I spent several months working there back in 2003, it is a small out in the desert conservative town. If it comes down to push coming to shove, well, their are probably more guns in Murrieta then there are people.

I just like the fact they are shipping them all over. Maybe some folks will wake up.

wolly4321 on July 7, 2014 at 7:46 PM

Levin mentioned something to that effect tonight. That it’s not just the border states’ problem anymore.

I could be wrong, but I think I remember reading somewhere once that LBJ had remarked, that when the caskets started arriving in the small towns, he had lost support for the war. Let’s hope that the rest of the country will now understand what some of us have been putting up with for years now.

Okay…I like the idea…. but you have to hold Resist down while we dye her purple and shave her head.

Eh, as usual.

To put the ‘ANOTHER 300,000 illegals’ (heading to the southern border of the United States from Central America, not to mention the Chinese and Middle Easterners) into context…

Via The National D-Day Museum:

On D-Day, the Allies landed around 156,000 troops in Normandy. The American forces landed numbered 73,000: 23,250 on Utah Beach, 34,250 on Omaha Beach, and 15,500 airborne troops. In the British and Canadian sector, 83,115 troops were landed (61,715 of them British): 24,970 on Gold Beach, 21,400 on Juno Beach, 28,845 on Sword Beach, and 7900 airborne troops.

In other words, the swarm heading this way is nearly twice the size of the Allied invasion force on D-Day, 6 June 1944.

National Guard…Right now….

So why suddenly would far away Latin American states start flooding in, but Mexicans wouldn’t?

Or could it be that sending back Mexicans is a lot easier, so its politically expedient that they be mostly OTM (other than Mexican) to excuse not sending them back?

sharrukin on July 7, 2014 at 7:49 PM

Maybe any Mexicans that want to come to the USA are already here so if the Democratics want even more voters they have to look further South?

slickwillie2001 on July 7, 2014 at 7:59 PM

Heard Ted Cruz on Hannity’s radio show today saying he visited one of these camps in Texas a couple weeks ago — and that some of these children are being physically, sexually, and psychologically abused (e.g. being forced at gunpoint on punishment of murder to cut off body parts of other children in order to extort more money from the kids’ families).

Why isn’t he screaming this stuff from the rooftops?

Coyote-in-Chief indeed …

See Posse Comitatus Act. Johnnyreb on July 7, 2014 at 7:47 PM

I don’t think that applies, as the Feds send riot troops to Murrieta CA.

wolly4321 on July 7, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Yes..and me as lifelong 30+ year Republican votes has no say on what they are doing now – who does our party represent when this is allowed to go unchecked? It’s past time to demand accountability of the party.

Where is the outrage.?..HA probably reaches 3% of conservatives ..let’s get the word out to all the others!

“how many cities will react to that deluge of illegal migrants in the same way that the citizens of Murrieta did?” hopefully all of them.

Rook on July 7, 2014 at 8:01 PM

Perhaps Congress might propose a change to the law Otherwise, what does “securing” or “defending” the southern border mean in this situation?
jim56 on July 7, 2014 at 7:45 PM

Who cares, if it saves even one life and all that.

I think it might be time for the National Guard.

A little late. I think.

Wassat? What? No can do? You’re what? You’re concerned about the illegals but just can’t accept any right now? Huh.

C’mon now..give the guy a break. Somalia is way far away and they need airfare to get here…

No. See Posse Comitatus Act.

Johnnyreb on July 7, 2014 at 7:47 PM

There is, however, absolutely nothing in the Posse Comitatus Act to prevent the United States Army from engaging in live fire exercises along the entire length of the US Mexican Border. Armies must practice for possible defense related situations, and an invasion of our Southern Border is just such a possibility that should be seriously prepared for.

oscarwilde on July 7, 2014 at 8:02 PM

My idea is to house all of the illegals in Wisconsin, they’ll take one look at their new home and head back over the border so fast they’ll leave their shadows behind.

Would you want to live in that cesspool, the state which created gonorrhea and bird flu?

Bishop on July 7, 2014 at 8:04 PM

wolly4321 on July 7, 2014 at 7:46 PM

They want to seed them. Chain migration, which evidence from the first amnesty proves will result in producing a minimum of five more immigrants per illegal alien granted amnesty under a family reunification sponsorship scheme, will result in “the browning of America”, that “minority-majority” being evenly distributed, that the LEFT has championed from the beginning.

In the three decades from the last amnesty illegal aliens have been slow to spread to the rest of the nation beyond the border states where there are already large Hispanic and Latino populations.

By seeding these people into those areas that haven’t seen large scale immigration from Mexico, Central, and South America it insures that those areas, too, will soon have large Hispanic and Latino communities through chain migration and it will be accomplished through ‘reuniting families’.

This, in turn, will turn red states blue. Red districts blue.

Many are and more will flood in as it becomes apparent that the gates have been opened.

According to geniuses like you, sharrukin, there is little difference between Obama and Romney. You should disqualify yourself from further commentary on the grounds of incompetence.
