117 Children

206,001 children live in Delaware according to the census bureau, but 117 new visitors are getting all of the attention. 117 children are the number the federal government reports to the state that 117 children have been sent to Delaware from the last group of 57,000 children who fled Central America. It appears the administration has no intention of even letting the Democrats in on the plan until after the fact. No money to take care of the bills. No political cover. Just backtracking. If that is the way the administration treats its allies, is their any wonder Republicans don’t trust it? The children have a right to due process. They have a right to stay with family. The problem is that public health has a right to know what diseases if any they are bringing in to the state. The local tax payer has a right to avoid unfunded mandates. The local police have a right to know if gang members are being transferred into our counties. The problem that I have is not with the children who are worthy of our compassion. It is with the high handed secrecy of a federal government that does not respect the states and their role in keeping the health and safety of its citizens. I support insuring that these children lured to our borders by extravagant promises of Dream Act amnesty are treated humanely. I also believe that capturing and detaining people does little good if we don’t screen out the very people that caused many of these teens to flee in the first place. A recent article published on the conservative World Net Daily highlights the concern. Take the level of rhetoric in the article and turn the dial down about half, but pay attention to what the border agents are telling us. Screening is not being done properly. President Obama may not be “inviting an invasion of murderers”, but some are here free while awaiting hearings with no supervision. That decision should not be forced upon a state because of the lack of information.
Chris Cabrera, a Border Patrol agent for nearly 13 years and a vice president in the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307, spoke to WND and Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, in an exclusive interview at the Rio Grande border in McAllen, Texas, Saturday. WND asked Cabrera what the Border Patrol and the Department of Homeland Security do when they find out an illegal immigrant teenager from Central America is a gang member or a murderer. “What do we do?” he answered. “Well, they haven’t committed a crime in the United States, so they’re good to go, and we send them north, even if they admit they have committed a murder Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/obama-inviting-invasion-of-murderers-gang-members/#pulIGevmMV3uRr4r.99

  1. How about if fundamentalist / evangelical, born-again Christians, filled with the Holy Spirit and tongue-talking, raise the children for a few years, before we send them back to Central America?

  2. If things are so bad down there that tens of thousands of people are seeking refugee status for their own safety, then why isn’t the UN doing something about it? Could it be that the UN is ineffective ?
    Or could it be that this is just human trafficking on a massive scale disguised as humanitarianism ?

  3. “If things are so bad down there that tens of thousands of people are seeking refugee status for their own safety, then why isn’t the UN doing something about it? Could it be that the UN is ineffective ?”

    There is no civil war. The violence is being committed by drug cartels. That’s not in the UN’s jurisdiction.

    If they were Cuban, they’d be welcomed with open arms, and borders.

    Which is exactly why they are not refugees and are not eligible for asylum.

    Liberal gun control policies have turned Chicago into a violent place. But if someone flees Chicago, they are not refugees under international or US Law and they are not eligible for asylum.

    Furthermore, a person who can simply move to another part of their own country is not a refugee or eligible for asylum. Rather than making the dangerous journey on the roof of a train, they could simply move to a different part of their own country.

    Riding on the roof of the train — owned as a subsidiary by a US company Kansas City Southern — is far more dangerous than any crime going on in their home country.

    BUT….

    Should we then cut off all American tourism to those countries?

    If it is so dangerous that 100% of all children we send back will be raped and murdered, according to the liberals, then why are we allowing U.S. tourists to vacation there?

  7. “Liberal gun control policies have turned Chicago into a violent place. ”

    Chicago was a violent place long before guns were common there, let alone gun control laws. You could look it up. The facts will show you that states with strict gun control laws have fewer shootings. You want to use cities because those cherries taste sweeter to dishonest debaters like you.
