Federal Government To Open $50M Resort For Illegal Alien Children

Feds To Open $50 Million Resort For Illegal Children, Complete With Tennis Courts, Sauna & Pools – Gateway Pundit

Welcome to America!

The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens.

.

.
The beautiful Palm Aire resort and hotel has an indoor Olympic sized pool and an outdoor pool. Free Wi-Fi and cable TV are included in the simply decorated guest rooms.

The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is set to be sold to Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) operating under a federal contract, pending local government approval, according to reports from Weslaco, Texas where the hotel is located. Weslaco is a few miles north of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo County.

The resort hotel for illegal alien children is reportedly the ‘first in the nation’.

.

.
The Palm Aire includes tennis courts, a laundromat and a snack bar.

The plan is to have the hotel ready for illegal alien children ages 12 to 17 by October 1st of this year, a mere two-and-half months from now. It is expected the average stay will be about fifteen days.

The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites currently advertises amenities such as two outdoor swimming pools – one Olympic sized – Jacuzzis, sauna, steam room, two racquetball courts, outdoor tennis courts, picnic area with grills and a fitness center with twenty machines and free weights.

.

.
A luxurious fitness center is on site at the Weslaco Palm Aire Hotel and Suites. Guests can also wind down in the sauna after a long trip.

Attracted to the space for outdoor recreation at the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites, BCFS spoke of building a soccer field at the hotel and adding a perimeter fence.

BCFS plans to employ 650 people at the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites, which would mean slightly over one worker per illegal alien child. According to the BCSF Website, the charity’s jobs pay from $10 to $45 per hour.

KRGV-TV quoted a BCFS spokeswoman about the purpose of buying the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites:

“It’s going to be an intake facility, which serves as a lot like a hospital emergency room,” Krista Piferrer, BCFS VP External Affairs said.

“”We’ve all seen the photos and the videos of children in crowded Border Patrol facilities. What this site is going to allow to happen is quickly move those children out of Border Patrol cells and triage them,” Piferrer said.”

BCFS plans for the facility to be “completely self-contained” with Piferrer telling KRGV-TV, ‘medical staff will be on hand so children with diseases or injuries will not be transferred to local hospitals.’

Piferrer told the Valley Morning Star the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites facility would ‘(provide) medical and mental health care, on-site educational programs, recreational programs and case management.’

According to a Hidalgo County commissioner, the BCFS contract for the Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is an annual one worth $50 million per year. It is not part of the $3.7 billion emergency funding for the illegal alien invasion requested by the Obama administration as the bill hasn’t yet passed but it is a good indication of where the money will go.

3,500 ‘Minutemen’ Troops Converging On Border To Help Stop Illegal Alien Invasion

Ordinary Citizens Rising Up: 3500 ‘Minutemen’ Troops Converging At Border – Downtrend

While it is certainly good to see ordinary Americans doing what they can to help solve problems and issues that are troubling our country, it is also sad to see the failure of government to act on legitimate concerns. After all, we can certainly agree that one of the most essential concerns and duties of a government is to protect, control, and defend our borders.

.

.
Sadly, ever since Obama has taken power, we have seen a continued and concerted effort to weaken our borders. To anyone who has been following recent events, it is clear that Obama is, at best, playing politics with our immigration laws and his policies. At worst, he is looking to weaken our country internally to the point where we become vulnerable to an outside attack or invasion.

Perhaps you have heard of the Minuteman project? I hadn’t until quite recently. This is an organization made up of patriotic Americans who are now looking to put an end to this influx of illegal immigrants. They are converging on the border in an effort to assist security efforts.

This is a response to how Obama has disarmed many of those Border Patrol officers and also simply refused to enforce many of our immigration laws. He has also removed and dwindled resources to the point of near non-existence. Obviously, this allowance of countless illegals into our country is both blatant and intentional. We have seen the photos of how drug smugglers are coming into this country laden with 50+ pound bags of drugs almost at will since Border Patrol officers have been recalled in an effort to man the detention facilities.

Led by Jim Gilchrist, this Minuteman Project is trying to take up the slack presented by the Obama Regime. They have issued a call for volunteers to head to the border and secure it since our lovely community organizer in chief refuses to do so. According to a report from WND:

“What Gilchrist describes as an ‘invasion’ is the flood of illegal aliens, including many children, coming into the United States from Mexico. Many of the illegal aliens are from Central America, where the word is that those who reach the United States gain access to food, housing, health care, and education. Part of the impetus has been identified by Barack Obama critics as the president’s policy of deferring deportation action against young illegal aliens.

Now Gilchrist, in a move that reflects increasing tension over the flood of illegals, some of whom are carrying tuberculosis, polio and other threats to society, has issued a new call for citizen volunteers to join him at the US border with Mexico.”

Interesting events. 3500 true American patriots have already responded to the call. It should be very instructive to see what response is forthcoming from the authorities. It should also be interesting to see what kind of effect they have on the number of illegals crossing into our country.

What do YOU think? Is this a legitimate response to a government that is increasingly out of control and shirking its responsibilities? Should we begin taking the security of our borders and our country more seriously and into our own hands? Might you ever consider joining forces with these 3500 courageous Minutemen?

Obama’s HHS Bankrolled Catholic And Baptist Churches From 2010 To 2013 To Prepare For Illegal Alien Invasion

HHS Bankrolled Catholic And Baptist Church From 2010 To 2013 To Prepare For Obama’s 2014 Invasion – Liberty News

.

.
A month or two ago news broke that Obama’s HHS was calling for private contractors to help transport illegal aliens throughout the interior United States. What made this already big news even bigger is the fact that the original call for proposals came out in January, long before the bulk of the illegal alien surge began.

The breaking news you’re about to read is ten times bigger, because the following proves the Obama administration was bankrolling America’s churches back in 2010. And the tens of millions were flowing in to prepare for the invasion currently underway.

The following is a small taste of what’s out there in grant records. This is just the tip of the iceberg, folks.

Between Dec 2010 and Nov 2013, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Galveston received $15,549,078 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Project” with a program description of “Refugee and Entry Assistance.”

Last year, the Catholic Charities Diocese of Fort Worth received $350,000 from Department of Homeland Security for “citizenship and education training” with a program description of “citizenship and immigration services.”

Between September 2010 and September 2013, the Catholic Charities of Dallas received $823,658 from the Department of Homeland Security for “Citizenship Education Training” for “refugee and entrant assistance.”

From Dec 2012 to January 2014, Baptist Child & Family Services received $62,111,126 in federal grants from Health & Human Services for “Unaccompanied Alien Children Program.”

Obama-Caused Border Crisis Update: 300,000 More Illegal Alien Children On The Way

Shock, ‘En-Route’: 300,000 More Kids Already On The Way – Pat Dollard

.

.
If each one of them produces 4 kids, that’s 1.5 million new Democrat voters. Obama won last election by about 4 million.

.

.
Excerpted from WOAI: “Everyone is being screened and receiving medical care.”

The issue burst into prominent last month when Newsradio 1200 WOAI revealed to the world that a Central American child at the Lackland AFB shelter was diagnosed with Swine Flu.

Since then, young people in the shelters have been diagnosed with scabies, lice, and two more cases of H1N1 flu have been spotted in a shelter in the Rio Grande Valley.

“There are FEMA and Coast Guard doctors down there assisting,” Moran told Newsradio 1200 WOAI.

Moran said there was concern not only fro the immigrants and for the communities the immigrants are being sent to, but also for the Border Patrol agents who have to deal with the flood of immigrants.

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

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.

Ted Cruz On Obama: “Playing Pool Is More Important Than Going To See The Humanitarian Crisis He Created” – Gateway Pundit

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke out tonight on Barack Obama refusal to secure the border or even to visit the border. The Texas conservative had this to say about the Commander in Chief.

“The cynicism of President Obama seems to know no bounds. He’s in Texas tonight. He’s going to two major fundraisers… Apparently he doesn’t have time to go and see the border. He doesn’t have time to see the children who are suffering because of his failed policies. Earlier he was playing pool. Apparently playing a game of pool is a higher priority to this president than it would be to go and see the humanitarian crisis he’s created.”

Dem. Rep. Rips Obama: ‘Aloof,’ ‘Bizarre,’ And ‘Detached’ – Weekly Standard

Democratic congressman Henry Cuellar ripped President Obama for being “aloof” and “detached” by not visiting the Texas border to see first hand the immigration crisis. Cuellar made the comments on MSNBC:

.

.
“He’s so close to the border. And let me say this: when I saw, and I hate to use the word bizarre, but under the circumstances, when he is shown playing pool in Colorado, drinking a beer, and he can’t even go 242 miles to the Texas border, and plus, if he doesn’t want to go down to the border, there’s the Air Force Base where HHS is holding some of the young kids from the border. He could at least make that trip to San Antonio, but again, border community leaders wants to see him down there on the border, and I think the optics and the substance of it is that he should show up at the border,” said Cuellar.

And he had some advice for the White House. “If they are worried about putting a face, the president’s face, to this human crisis, humanitarian crisis, I think it’s worse if he doesn’t even show up. Either way, he’s going to be tied into this humanitarian crisis. he either can roll up his sleeves and go down to the border, or he can just look aloof and detached and not go to the border, send surrogates down there, and say that he’s got everything under control.”

He adds, “It Just floored me, because if he’s saying he’s too busy to go to the border but you have time to drink beer, play pool.”

The president was in Colorado last night – drinking beer and playing pool.

Illegal Alien Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder

Illegal Unaccompanied Minors Being Held For Placement In U.S. Admit To Engaging In Torture And Murder – Townhall

.

.
Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to “stem the tide” of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States.

“We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old,” an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. “They are being held for placement in the U.S.”

By U.S. legal standards many gang members operating in Central American countries and traveling north are classified as minors due to being under the age of 18. However, many young males are actively engaged in violent cartel and criminal activity, yet are treated as children when processed through the Department of Human Services or Department of Homeland Security systems.

“But remember, this is a ‘humanitarian crisis.’ They are just kids,” he said in a frustrated and sarcastic tone. “They are MS-13 gang members. They’ve done everything from torture to murder. They act as teenage ‘enforcers.'”

Federal Government Advertised In January For “Escorts” For 65,000 Illegal Alien Children To Be “Resettled”

Government Advertised In January For “Escorts” For 65,000 Illegal Alien Children To Be “Resettled” – Weasel Zippers

.

.
This particular ad ran in FedBizOpps in January with RFI for “Escorts” for 65,000 unaccompanied alien children.

This is the relevant description:

Procurement Type: Request for Information (RFI)/Sources Sought

Title: Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children

Classification Code: V- Transportation/Travel/Relocation

NAICS code: 561612

Primary POC: Rachel Ali, Contract Specialist/ Rachel.Ali@ice.dhs.gov

Secondary POC: Tony Ross, Contracting Officer/ Tony.Ross@ice.dhs.gov

A. Introduction

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. Escort services include, but are not limited to, assisting with: transferring physical custody of UAC from DHS to Health and Human Services (HHS) care via ground or air methods of transportation (charter or commercial carrier), property inventory, providing juveniles with meals, drafting reports, generating transport documents, maintaining/stocking daily supplies, providing and issuing clothing as needed, coordinating with DHS and HHS staff, travel coordination, limited stationary guard services to accommodate for trip disruptions due to inclement weather, faulty equipment, or other exigent circumstances. In emergency situations, the Contractor shall be called on to provide temporary shelter locations (such as trailers) with shower facilities for juveniles who are pending placement with HHS when bed space is unavailable nationwide for extended periods of time. The Contractor shall provide temporary guard services and other support as necessary during these emergencies.

This advertisement raises a lot of questions. There is a lot of specificity reflected in this document that seeks to deal with an influx that hadn’t as yet happened. How could they know 65,000, even breaking down the percentages that would be covered by ground, charter and air transportation?

Having received a lot of flack for the influx of illegals, there are some in the Obama regime who are now trying to suggest, oh, of course, the children will be deported after the initial emergency crush is addressed. But if that is so, why the reference to “Office of Refugee Resettlement”

What is the mission of the Office of Refugee Resettlement?

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) provides new populations with opportunities to maximize their potential in the United States, linking people in need to critical resources to assist them in becoming integrated members of American society.

The purpose is not to take care of them and then ship them out, the purpose of the ORR is, in their own words, to resettle them and integrate them into the United States. The language is already defining them as “refugees” making it clear the administration’s desire to have them stay, before they even arrive, before any individual case for asylum is even considered.

The very language confirms the Obama regime 1) knew with specificity a huge influx was on the way and 2) they intended them to stay.

Troubling to say the least…

Former Border Patrol Agents Claim Current Flood Of Illegal Alien Children Orchestrated By Obama Regime

Ex-Border Agents: Immigrant Flood ‘Orchestrated’ – WorldNetDaily

.

.
An organization of former Border Patrol agents Wednesday charged that the federal government, under the administration of President Obama, is deliberately arranging for a flood of immigrant children to arrive in America for political purposes.

“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,” said the statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers.

“Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States government,” the officers said.

“Anyone that has taken two six- to seven-year-old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States.”

Republicans are blaming Obama’s immigration policies for enticing the illegals, particularly the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program launched in 2012, which recently was renewed.

More than 33,000 have been caught in Texas alone over the last eight months, the report said, overwhelming Border Patrol capabilities.

A federal judge even concluded the White House “has simply chosen not to enforce… border security laws.”

FoxNews.com reported this week Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer calls the situation a “creation” of the federal government, and Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., assigned blame for the “calamity” to Obama.

Fox News reported it had obtained a memo from an official with Customs and Border Protection who said the current policies are serving as an incentive for illegal aliens to sneak into the U.S.

“If the U.S. government fails to deliver adequate consequences to deter aliens from attempting to illegally enter the U.S., the result will be an even greater increase in the rate of recidivism and first-time illicit entries,” said Ronald Vitiello, a deputy Border Patrol chief.

Officials say among Obama’s policies that are attracting illegals is his instructions for “deferred action” for young illegals. Recently, the federal government said it was hunting for lawyers to provide legal help to children who are in the U.S. illegally.

The White House is asking for $1.4 billion more for the illegal-alien children, which by some estimates will grow to 150,000 next year.

The former Border Patrol agents said the campaign is a “political deception,” and the responsibility rests with the political leaders who support “a path to citizenship, regularization or any other form of amnesty for illegal aliens before providing for full protections for national security (jobs and economy) and public safety (the right of the people to be secure in their property and person).”

The officers argue that the non-enforcement of immigration laws is “the next step in becoming a failed state.”

“Yes, our leaders are guilty. However, we are responsible because it is the American voter [who] has placed untrustworthy people in positions of power and kept them there when they have clearly demonstrated that they have violated that public trust.

“These successful con artists are well dressed, attractive and charming,” the statement said.

The officers even questioned whether “this heartless criminal exploitation of Central American infants and children [will] finally awaken Americans to the ruse being foisted upon them by their government, the media and other interested parties.”

“Has America lost her ability to stand up against the tyrants and do what is right rather than what is easy? Obviously, this administration thinks you are as corrupt as they are and will vote them back into office or these young children would not be streaming into America to tug at your hearts and empty your heads of reason,” the statement said.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest this week said the Federal Emergency Management Agency is leading an effort to respond to the illegal alien children arriving in the U.S. He said many are “escaping abuse or persecution” and are being sent to locations in Texas and Oklahoma.

Congressman Gosar To File For Eric Holder’s Impeachment Over Illegal Alien Smuggling

Congressman To File For Eric Holder’s Impeachment As Complicit In Human Smuggling – Conservative Infidel

Rep Paul Gosar (R-AZ) told U.S. News that the plans to either draft articles of impeachment or co-sponsor and add his name as the 27th to an existing impeachment bill that was introduced in November by fellow Congressman Pete Olson (R-TX).

.

.
While the general lawlessness of the Obama/Holder regime has taken many objectionable forms, the final straw for Gosar is what he calls his “illegal alien smuggling,” his complicit disengagement from enforcement and implied consent to the ongoing activity as it relates to the transport and release of illegal aliens in Arizona by the DHS.

In a Thursday press release, Gosar said, “Flooding our streets with illegal aliens who are being abandoned without resources is not just inhumane and cruel, it is a crime and federal law bans alien smuggling.” He continues, saying, “This is the most lawless administration in history… It starts at the top with Eric Holder and if the chief law enforcement officer of the United States is not going to enforce the laws of this land, then he should be impeached.”

While Gosar is not a household name, he has had success previously in recruiting cosponsors in response to the illegal actions of Holder’s “Justice” Department during a congressional investigation into the ATF Fast and Furious scandal.

The result of Gosar’s previous effort was a vote 255-67 to hold Holder in contempt of Congress. Gosar had called for Holder’s resignation, but Obama stepped in and offered Holder protection under a dubious declaration of executive privilege. Gosar says he won’t make the mistake of calling for a resignation this time. He’ll be setting his sights on impeachment and has already spoken with the House leadership.

Rep Gosar said of his efforts, “My calls have been very, very successful in the Republican aspect and right now I’m working on the leadership in the House. It’s a difficult move because it means we’re coming to the last vestiges of how we deal with how we solve these problems, but when people look at the facts, we can’t keep doing this, we have to be a law-abiding country.”

Leaked Photos Reveal Illegal Alien Children Warehoused In Crowded U.S. Cells; Authorities Overwhelmed

Leaked Images Reveal Children Warehoused In Crowded U.S. Cells, Border Patrol Overwhelmed – Breitbart

.

.
Breitbart Texas obtained internal federal government photos depicting the conditions of foreign children warehoused by authorities on U.S. soil on Wednesday night. Thousands of illegal immigrants have overrun U.S. border security and their processing centers in Texas along the U.S./Mexico border. Unaccompanied minors, including young girls under the age of 12, are making the dangerous journey from Central America and Mexico, through cartel-controlled territories, and across the porous border onto U.S. soil.

The photos illuminate the conditions of the U.S. Border Patrol’s processing centers, as well as the overwhelming task Border Patrol is facing.

Breitbart Texas Border Expert and Contributing Editor Sylvia Longmire reviewed the photos.

“Given the deteriorating security and economic conditions in the Central American countries where most of these children and adult immigrants came from, it’s hard to understand how DHS didn’t see this coming,” Longmire said. “The trend towards increased cross-border movement towards south Texas and away from Arizona has been apparent; the trend of Central Americans starting to outnumber Mexican crossers has been apparent. Even worse is believing that DHS knew this was coming, but didn’t have the resources or ability to cut through bureaucratic red tape to prepare more quickly.

“Now the results of this mismanagement are thousands of individuals living in inhumane conditions for an indeterminate period of time, as well as exhausted and overwhelmed Border Patrol agents and CBP detention facilities,” Longmire continued. “The Obama administration’s band-aid fix has been to ship a good portion of these immigrants – many of whom are weak, emotionally vulnerable, sick, and confused – to other sectors as far as San Diego county in California and release them with no obligation other than to show up for a hearing in 15 days.

“Most of those released will abscond and never show up for their hearings, taking their chances that ICE won’t have the time or resources to go looking for them,” she added. “Until they can get to where they want to go, they’re overwhelming local community resources in cities like Laredo, El Paso, and Tucson that haven’t had enough time to prepare for this ‘solution.’ This is an awful way to showcase what cartel and gang violence is doing to children and their families in Central America, and it’s a humiliating example of what our government’s inability to develop solid immigration and border security policies can cause.”

Record Number Of Illegal Alien Children Crossing Southern Border

Children Swarming Southern Border Prove A Test To Obama’s Immigration Policy – Washington Times

Children traveling without their families, including an “overwhelming” number younger than 12, are flooding across the southwestern border in the latest test of the Obama administration’s immigration policy.

.

.
Homeland Security Officials predict that 60,000 minors will cross the border this year and that the number will double next year, accounting for an astonishing percentage of people trying to jump the border – braving the tremendous perils of crossing Mexico and trying to evade border authorities, hoping to eventually connect with family in the U.S.

The administration seems powerless to stop most of the border breaches and instead has searched for ways to manage the flow of vulnerable, and politically sympathetic, immigrants.

On Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will raise the issue with Congress. He will recount his trip this month to the border in Texas, where he saw such children, which the government calls “unaccompanied alien children,” or UACs.

“I have been closely following this emerging issue since coming into office, with a particular focus on the Rio Grande Valley,” Mr. Johnson will tell the House, according to his prepared testimony. “I traveled to McAllen, Texas, to view the situation and saw the children there firsthand – an overwhelming number of whom were under 12 years old.”

Officials are grappling with how the U.S. should handle children inside the border and whether there is any way to stop the flow.

Under U.S. law, the children are entitled to special protections and can’t be put straight into deportation proceedings, as adults are.

Instead, they are screened for trafficking concerns. Once processed, they are placed with either foster families or sent to their own families in the U.S. while they apply for asylum or a special juvenile visa, said Marc R. Rosenblum, deputy director of the Migration Policy Institute’s U.S. immigration policy program.

“Those policies make a lot of sense because these are a vulnerable population,” he said.

In some cases, Homeland Security officials are sending the children to be with their parents – even when those parents are known to be living in the U.S. illegally. A federal judge in Texas blasted the department for that practice late last year, saying the government essentially had become complicit in criminal activity.

“The DHS is rewarding criminal conduct instead of enforcing the current laws. More troubling, the DHS is encouraging parents to seriously jeopardize the safety of their children,” Judge Andrew S. Hanen wrote in a court order.

The children are chiefly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and have to cross through Mexico, braving the elements and smugglers to eventually arrive at the border in Texas, where they generally try to cross. Reports of rape are common among the girls.

The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees released a study this year that surveyed more than 400 of the children as they arrived in the U.S. and found nearly half of them were fleeing drug cartels or gangs in their home countries. Still others were fleeing abusive homes.

“I am here because the gang threatened me,” one 15-year-old girl from El Salvador, identified only as Maritza, told the UNHCR investigators. “One of them ‘liked’ me. Another gang member told my uncle that he should get me out of there because the guy who liked me was going to do me harm. In El Salvador they take young girls, rape them and throw them in plastic bags.”

The number of unaccompanied children has spiked even in the past few weeks, said Homeland Security spokeswoman Marsha Catron, who said the rise has strained her department and the Department of Health and Human Services, which under the law is responsible for caring for the children.

HHS has asked for space to house up to 1,000 children at Lackland Air Force Base, and the government is trying to find even more facilities.

Meanwhile, Mr. Johnson has sent staff to southern Texas to make sure children are receiving medical care. He also has directed his department to develop “an aggressive public messaging campaign to outline the dangers of and deter” the children from trying to cross, the spokeswoman said.

“DHS is expanding awareness campaigns targeting potential crossers, in their home countries, in an effort to warn them of the extreme dangers associated with attempts to illegally enter the United States while also underscoring the fact that illegal crossers – including children seeking to reunite with families – are not eligible for legal status, including under prospective legislation,” Ms. Catron said.

But she acknowledged that the government has limited tools to stem the flow.

Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies, said the numbers have been rising steadily for several years, and that the administration should have been better prepared.

“This is a crisis on the level of the Mariel crisis. This far outstrips the agency’s capacity to deal with it in the normal way,” she said, referring to the 1980 mass emigration from Cuba. “But they saw this coming, too. They estimated months ago that it was going to be double the prior year and they don’t seem to be taking any steps to prevent it from happening.”

She said releasing the children into the community, where they live for years while awaiting a final decision on their cases, will encourage more families to send their children.

“I would argue that it would be perhaps more humane to deal with it firmly so that people stop taking the risk of putting children through this smuggling ordeal,” Ms. Vaughan said.

That is probably unthinkable for an administration that has carved most illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. out of danger of deportation, and is searching for more ways to halt deportations.

Left with few other options, the administration has pleaded for help from Mexico, which is the first to see the border crossers.

Secretary of State John F. Kerry raised the issue during a recent visit to Mexico City.

For now though, the administration continues to struggle.

Mr. Rosenblum of the Migration Policy Institute said he is able to come up with good policy answers to most immigration questions, even if they are not politically possible. But in this case, he said, that’s not true.

“On this one, there’s really not a good policy answer,” he said. “Anything you do to protect those kids creates perverse incentives for other families to send their kids, and anything you do on enforcement puts them back in those bad situations.”

Nearly 180 Convicted Illegal Alien Sex Offenders Apprehended In South Texas Since October

Nearly 180 Convicted Illegal Immigrant Sex Offenders Apprehended In South Texas Since October – Big Government

Border Patrol agents in South Texas have arrested nearly 180 illegal immigrants convicted of sex crimes since last October, Customs and Border Protection announced this week.

.

.
The majority of the offenders’ crimes were committed against children, the worst of which included “sexual assault of a child; sodomy, lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14; aggravated sexual assault of a child; and aggravated indecent assault and corruption of a minor,” CBP said in a release Tuesday.

According to CBP, the nearly 180 illegal immigrants’ prior convictions were for sex crimes all over the United States. They were apprehended by Rio Grande Valley Sector agents.

In addition to the convicted illegal immigrants, RGV Sector agents also caught three illegal immigrants with arrest warrants for sex-related crimes just last weekend.

“They include a Mexican national wanted in Fort Worth on a continuous child sex abuse charge; a Salvadoran wanted by the Loudan County Sheriff’s Office in Virginia on a charge of adultery/fornication: incest with a child between 13-17 years of age; and another Mexican national wanted by the Travis County Sheriff’s Office on a charge of indecency with a child/sexual contact. The three men were turned over to the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office pending extradition,” CBP said in its release.

News of the apprehensions come as lawmakers expressed outrage at a recent report about an internal ICE document revealing that the agency released more than 36,000 immigrants with convictions for nearly 88,000 crimes last year alone – including 426 sexual assault convictions.

RINO Governor Rick Scott Signs Bill Allowing Illegal Alien To Get Law License

Governor Scott Signs Bill Allowing Illegal Alien To Get Law License – Weasel Zippers

Another RINO. Update to a previous story.

.

Via Tampa Bay Times

Gov. Rick Scott signed 58 bills into law Monday, including one that will allow a Pinellas County law school graduate to qualify for a Bar license even though he’s not a citizen.

“I feel ecstatic. I can’t believe it,” said Jose Godinez-Samperio, 27, of Largo. “We’ve had to jump through so many hoops, I can’t believe it’s here.”

Legislators in both parties championed his cause after the Florida Supreme Court ruled unanimously in March that a federal law bars Godinez-Samperio from practicing law in Florida unless the Legislature exempts the state from that law.

Godinez-Samperio, who came to the U.S. from Mexico with his parents when he was 9, wants to practice immigration law and works as a paralegal at Gulf Coast Legal Services. He’s a so-called Dreamer who has temporary legal status in the U.S. and was an honors graduate from the Florida State University College of Law.

Leftist Parasites In Senate Kill Amendment Restoring Veterans’ Pensions; Protect Illegal Alien Tax Credit

Democrats Save Illegal Alien Tax Credit, Kill Move To Restore Veterans’ Pensions – Big Government

.

.
Senate Democrats killed an amendment from Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) that would have paid for unemployment benefits for many Americans and replaced recent cuts to veterans’ pensions by closing a tax code loophole that allows illegal aliens to access the Refundable Child Tax Credit.

The vote failed on Thursday 54-42, with all Republicans but Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) voting for the amendment and against Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) crossed the aisle to vote alongside Republicans in favor of the amendment.

The amendment would have been to the Unemployment Insurance Extension Bill, S. 1845. On the Senate floor while debating the amendment, Ayotte argued her amendment is “one that would fix fraud in our tax code that really came to light in 2011 in a Treasury IG [Inspector General] report.”

“What it would simply require is those who seek the additional child tax credit to file a Social Security number just like those who seek the Earned Income Tax Credit in this country,” Ayotte said.

And why is that? Because the investigations of this tax refund that people receive found that they were claiming it for people who were number one not authorized to work in this country were claiming it and secondly for children that might not even exist. Investigations found that children who don’t even live in this country [were getting the tax credit].

Ayotte argued on the Senate floor that her amendment would “pay for three months of unemployment insurance for American workers for this issue that we have before this chamber.”

“It would pay for a fix to the military retirement cuts to the COLA that also impacted our wounded warriors that were done in the most recent budget that were unfair,” Ayotte added. “Members of both sides of the aisle have come together to say we should fix [that] and say it’s unfair. What else would it do? It would reduce the deficit. And what I hear from the Majority Leader is I hear ‘well we’ve heard that idea before.’ Well, we may have heard it before, but we’ve not been allowed a vote on it.”

While Ayotte made a case for the amendment, Democrat Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) argued against it.

“Now this idea of going after children is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard and I’m shocked,” an irate Boxer said on the Senate floor while shaking her finger up and down. “I am shocked. You’re going to hurt children. You’re going to take away food out of their mouths.”

At another point, Boxer called on senators to support Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

“Let us support our leader,” she said. “And let us work through the weekend to come up with a plan. I think the Majority Leader has one.”

Soon thereafter, Boxer criticized Republicans for wanting to vote on amendments.

“All they do on that side is complain that their amendments are so important,” Boxer said while throwing both her arms up in the air.

California’s Activist Supreme Court Rules Illegal Alien Can Practice Law In State

Illegal Immigrant Allowed To Practice Law, California Court Rules – Wall Street Journal

A Mexican immigrant who is living in the country illegally but had graduated from law school and passed the California bar was granted a law license Thursday by the state’s highest court.

.

.
In a unanimous decision, the California Supreme Court granted a motion filed by the state bar’s Committee of Examiners to admit 36-year-old Sergio C. Garcia. Mr. Garcia, who will open his own practice in Chico, Calif., after he is sworn in, can now legally be retained as an attorney in the state, though he cannot be employed by a firm, attorneys representing him said.

In an interview, Mr. Garcia said he was satisfied with the decision, as it was always his intention to practice privately, in the area of civil litigation. Attorneys who represented Mr. Garcia said he is the first attorney living openly in the U.S. as an illegal immigrant granted the right to practice law. Similar cases are before courts in New York and Florida.

“Right now, I am super excited, I am super happy; this has been a long, drawn-out struggle,” Mr. Garcia said. “This case in California serves as a beacon for the rest of the country to follow suit. There really is no national interest for keeping somebody like me from practicing, and paying taxes to their full potential.”

The decision to grant Mr. Garcia a law license came after California Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed into state law legislation that specifically allows undocumented immigrants to be admitted as attorneys. That law went into effect Wednesday.

Thursday’s decision by the state Supreme Court, which grants licenses to attorneys in the state, clears the way for admission to the bar of at least one other current applicant in California who is in the country illegally.

At issue in Mr. Garcia’s case was a federal law that prohibits people in the country illegally from obtaining professional licenses. That law had a subsection that allowed states to grant licenses if a state law was passed.

It isn’t clear what impact Mr. Garcia’s case might have beyond California. While the precedent set by the high court in the country’s most populous state is noteworthy, the decision came only after the state legislature acted.

Mr. Garcia was born in Mexico but was brought to the U.S. when he was about 18 months old. He returned to Mexico at the age of nine, and then came back to the U.S. at the age of 17, according to the summary of his case that was part of the court’s opinion. Mr. Garcia’s father filed an immigration visa petition on his son’s behalf in 1994. That application has been pending since 1995, given the visa backlog for individuals from Mexico.

Mr. Garcia graduated from high school, attended college and received his law degree in 2009 from Cal Northern School of Law, passing the bar that same year. After he listed his immigration status as “pending” in his application to the state bar, the bar conducted an investigation into Mr. Garcia and determined the immigrant possessed the “good moral character” to qualify.

Jerome Fishkin, an attorney in Walnut Creek, Calif., who originally took Mr. Garcia’s case pro bono with his wife, Lindsay Slatter, said that it was immediately clear that Mr. Garcia’s immigration status was the main issue, and that Mr. Garcia met all other requirements to be a good attorney.

Steven Camarota, director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit group that wants to reduce the flow of immigrants to the U.S., said the decision was a mockery of the rule of law.

“It conveys or demonstrates once again, how we are not serious about our laws,” Mr. Camarota said.

Federal Judge: Obama’s DHS Delivering Young Illegals Caught At Border To Illegal Alien Parents

Judge: DHS Delivering Young Illegals Caught At Border To Illegal Immigrant Parents – Daily Caller

A case out of Texas has a federal judge asking just which side of the law the Department of Homeland Security is working for.

.

.
United States District Judge for the Southern District of Texas Brownsville Division Andrew S. Hanen rebuked DHS for helping to deliver an illegal immigrant minor – detained at the border with her human smuggler – to her illegal immigrant mother living in Virginia.

Homeland Security “successfully complet[ed] the mission of the criminal conspiracy” to smuggle the child across the border to her parent, the judge wrote in an order issued on Dec. 13.

The mother, Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos, had agreed to pay $8,500 to have human smugglers bring her child from El Salvador to Virginia.

The smuggler, Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez, was arrested and the child detained at a Texas border checkpoint when they were caught trying to use a birth certificate that belonged to Nava-Martinez’s daughter.

Nava-Martinez, a resident alien, also had a prior felony for food-stamp fraud in 2011.

“Despite this setback, the goal of the conspiracy was completed thanks to the actions of the United States Government,” Hanen wrote. “This Court is quite concerned with the apparent policy of the Department of Homeland Security (hereinafter ‘DHS’) of completing the criminal mission of individuals who are violating the border security of the United States.”

“Customs and Border Protection agents stopped the Defendant at the border inspection point. She was arrested, and the child was taken into custody. The DHS officials were notified that Salmeron Santos instigated this illegal conduct,” the judge continued. “Yet, instead of arresting Salmeron Santos for instigating the conspiracy to violate our border security laws, the DHS delivered the child to her – thus successfully completing the mission of the criminal conspiracy. It did not arrest her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her. The DHS policy is a dangerous course of action.”

This was “the fourth case with the same factual situation this court has had in as many weeks,” Hanen wrote.

In each of those cases, Hanen explained, illegal immigrant minors – whose illegal immigrant parent or parents were paying human smugglers to bring them into the United States – detained prior to arriving at their destination were delivered to their illegal immigrant parents by DHS.

The judge noted that in all four cases, the American taxpayer ended up on the hook for the final delivery.

“In all cases when the Government apprehended some of the traffickers, the Government transported the children across the country to unite them with a parent (or parents) who was in the country illegally. In one situation, the Government flew a child to multiple locations in different parts of the United States. The taxpayers of the United States suffer the expense of delivering these minors,” Hanen wrote.

“This is an absurd and illogical result. The DHS could reunite the parent and child by apprehending the parent who has committed not one, by at least two different crimes,” he continued.

The judge added that “the failure by DHS to enforce current United States law” is concerning because illegal activities of this kind help fund drug cartels. It also undermines the deterrent effect of the nation’s immigration laws and lowers the moral of the men and women risk their lives to enforce the law, he wrote.

The order comes as Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions and the union representing ICE officers and staff have been sounding the alarm about lack of immigration enforcement at DHS, with the Alabama lawmaker recently issuing a “Timeline of Administrative Non-Enforcement of Federal Immigration Law.”

DHS did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Planned Parenthood Obstructs Investigation Into Illegal Alien Child Rapist

Unspeakable Evil: Planned Parenthood Obstructs Child Rape Investigation – The Other Mccain

When I first heard this, I couldn’t believe it, but it’s true. Last year, a 31-year-old illegal immigrant named Luis Gonzalez-Jose raped an 11-year-old girl who became pregnant. The man took the girl to a Planned Parenthood clinic where he pretended to be her father and told the staff the girl had been impregnated by her 14-year-old boyfriend.

.

The clinic performed the abortion and when the police began investigating the rape, the clinic refused to cooperate with the detective, insisting that he get a court order. This is insane.

Furthermore, the girl’s family refused to cooperate with prosecutors and, as the result of a plea bargain, the monster who raped this little girl will serve only six years in prison. Words fail.

Illegal Alien Jailed For Domestic Violence Makes Bail, Then Stabs Wife To Death

Illegal Alien Makes Bail, Stabs Wife To Death – Downtrend

A California county’s refusal to detain an illegal alien, accused of violence, has ended in tragedy. Mario Chavez was charged with several serious crimes related to a domestic fight in August of this year. He made bail, ignored a restraining order and stabbed his wife to death. What makes this crime even more horrific is that it should have never happened. Chavez was in this country illegally and should have been detained, but Santa Clara County, where the crime occurred, doesn’t honor federal immigration requests to hold undocumented lawbreakers.

.
…………………

During the violent domestic argument, Chavez threatened his wife and 6-year old son with a knife. He was charged with criminal threats, child endangerment and brandishing a weapon. Chavez’s wife was also granted a protective order as a result of the incident. Despite the seriousness of the charges, a judge set the bail at $8000, which Chavez was able to post.

The restraining order provided no protection. Two weeks after the incident, Chavez went to his house and viciously stabbed his wife to death. The couple’s two young children were in the next room watching cartoons as their father killed their mother. It was a senseless homicide that could have been stopped if Chavez’s immigration status was made available to the feds.

The way U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents identify criminal illegal aliens is through a program called “Secure Communities.” With the program, local law enforcement is encouraged to submit fingerprints of those arrested to be run through the Department Of Homeland Security’s database. If identified, Agents will send a request for the prisoner to be held for up to 48 hours so deportation proceedings can be initiated. Santa Clara County disregards these requests.

In this case, the Secure Communities program wouldn’t have worked because Chavez had no prints on record; however, he was unable to establish legal residency. ICE bolsters the program by reviewing jail intake records and interviewing inmates. Agents could have easily determined he was in the country illegally. Unfortunately, Santa Clara County bans federal agents from contact with inmates without a warrant.

This tragedy could have been averted if there was any cooperation between the county and the feds. If agents were allowed access to Chavez, an interview would have revealed his illegal status. That, along with his arresting offenses, would have allowed him to be taken into federal custody and processed for deportation. He would not have been free to kill his wife.

County Supervisor Dave Cortese tried to pass blame from the uncooperative county policy and onto the legal system itself. He noted that Chavez was charged with serious crimes but that the district attorney did not request a higher bail.

“If (the DA) wants to be tougher on felons, he should do that. But don’t deflect attention to undocumented people,” said Cortese.

Cortese was unmoved by the killing and skeptical of the public-safety benefit of complying with the Safe Communities program. He said cases like Chavez’s represent only a small fraction of violent offenders in jail. Most inmates are U.S. citizens that wouldn’t be caught in the wide net cast by ICE, he added.

What a disgusting and callous attitude from an elected official. Here’s at least one public-safety benefit from detaining illegal aliens: a mother would still be alive and her children wouldn’t have been rendered, for all intents and purposes, orphans. How is protecting the rights of people who are in this country illegally more important than lives of the public at large?

Illegal aliens shouldn’t have rights beyond basic human rights anyways. They are not citizens. They are not legal residents. They should not be free to rob, rape and murder. I realize that Chavez’s wife was more than likely also undocumented, but it doesn’t mean he should have been given the means to slaughter her.

There are thousands of crimes committed by people who shouldn’t be in this country every year. Many of these crimes are violent and deadly and often perpetrated by people who have prior arrests. The policies of Santa Clara County, and other “safe haven” locales, put the public at risk. Human life is worth a little compliance and cooperation.

Illegal Alien/Activist Featured In Time Magazine Article On Immigration Reform Arrested On Child Porn Charges

Roy Naim, The ‘Jewish Face Of The Immigration Reform Struggle’ Featured In Time Magazine, Arrested On Child Porn Charges And Denied Bail – Daily Mail

An immigration advocate profiled in a Time cover story has been arrested on child pornography charges.

Self-fashioned immigration activist Roy Naim, 29, downloaded three child pornography videos and is currently in federal custody after being denied bail Wednesday, officials said. The accused pervert has volunteered at a camp for special needs children in the past, a position he appears to have left in 2010

One of the subjects of a 2012 Time story on 35 undocumented illegal immigrants, Mr Naim pleaded not guilty to a single count of receiving child pornography. The Israeli national was deemed a flight risk and denied bail.

.

U.S. Attorney Saritha Komatireddy argued Mr Naim should be denied bail because of the risk he posed to the community as an accused pedophile who has worked in the past with children, has no job and isn’t a citizen, according to CNN.

Attorney Richard Finkel unsuccessfully countered that Mr Naim spends most of his time volunteering and helping others, CNN reported. Additionally, Mr Finkel noted that the Naim family, with very little money and no property, doesn’t have the means to help Roy Naim flee.

Without assets for collateral, the judge explained, she had no choice but to deny bail, said CNN.

.

Mr Naim is currently sitting in jail after an alleged child pornography distributor was arrested recently in Louisiana, officials said. One of the receivers of that child pornography turned out to be the ‘Jewish Face of the Immigration Reform Struggle,’ according to an indictment cited by multiple media outlets.

The accused pedophile received that nickname from the Jewish Daily Forward.

in India after canteen owner kidnapped and raped college student for 17 MONTHS

Officials said Mr Naim voluntarily copped to years of downloading and viewing child pornography. Investigators uncovered videos of children performing sexual acts on his laptop and immediately arrested him, according to the indictment.

An eerie tweet only two days before his arraignment read ‘Giving it up,’ but it is not clear if that resignation was because he knew investigators were closing in on him.

.

Mr Naim made a name for himself by staging public rallies and lobbying Congress to enact immigration reform. His activism was born out of frustration from trying to become an American citizen since his family immigrated to the US when he was three-years-old.

‘He wants to be an American citizen,’ Richard Finkel, Mr Naim’s attorney, told the New York Daily News.

Mr Naim lists multiple volunteer positions at Camp Simcha between 2003 and 2008 on his Facebook page, but is referred to as a division head in a post on the camp’s Facebook page.

.

Camp Simcha is famous for being attended by a young, disabled Israeli girl whom a plane turned around to retrieve after leaving her at the gate for lack of identification.

Attempts to reach camp administration for comment were unsuccessful.

If convicted, Mr Naim faces five to 20 years in prison. It is not clear if he would also face a possible deportation.
