Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith (R-TX) noted in his statement to the Committee regarding the investigation that “Under this administration, detention looks more like recess. While funds for American students’ physical education classes are being cut, the new detention standards expand recreation for illegal immigrants.”
The administration is proud of itself for providing flat-screen TVs in kid-friendly individual rooms and free stuff galore for the aliens, and recently invited the media for a tour. Greta van Susteren was outraged at the luxury and cost — $140 per resident daily x 532 detainees = $74,500 per day total:
Below, the array of free stuff for aliens is stunning, from racks of new clothes to shoes sorted by size.
This message of American jails as nice as hotels will certainly be playing widely in Central America and beyond, enticing even more future Democrats to come.
KARNES CITY, Texas (AP) — Federal immigration officials on Thursday sought to show the softer side of immigrant detention, complete with cartoon wall murals, stuffed animals, playgrounds, snacks and a hair salon at a South Texas facility that will house women and their children who crossed the border illegally.
With a surge in illegal immigration in recent months, especially children traveling alone and parents bringing in children from Central America, authorities moved to convert an all-male detention facility about 50 miles Southeast of San Antonio into one that could temporarily house families.
The Karnes County Residential Center is the third such family center in the nation, with the others in the New Mexico and Pennsylvania, and more could be on the way.
The facility will start receiving immigrants on Friday and can house up to 532 people at a cost of about $140 a day per person.
However, a more peaceful Middle East may well lead to a jihad-riven Europe and America, because the fighters who came from the West will return to their countries of residence with advanced training in war and a desire to build the caliphate.
The Muslim soldiers see themselves as being on the march, successfully conquering territory for Allah, with little pushback from any western nations. When they return to Europe and America, many will continue to fight for Allah.
Most of the jihadists from Europe and America are immigrants who never assimilated to their new countries and their only loyalty is to Islam. It’s another brick in the wall of why Muslim immigration is a terrible policy for any nation that wants to stay free.
A report from CBN’s Dale Hurd calls attention to the danger posed by trained fighters who will return home with jihad in mind.
PARIS — In a video message, British jihadists in Syria can be seen trying to recruit more Muslim young men to come and join them.
One, holding a weapon, says, “This is a message to the brothers who have stayed behind…”
They have taken to social media to share an Islamic message with their friends back home: Even if you lead a sinful life, the Koran teaches that martyrdom is a ticket to heaven.
Grisly Instagram photos and videos sent to friends back home include bags and even truckloads of severed heads that fighters from Britain are collecting.
Another jihadist, wearing a hood, says, “Dear brothers, especially brothers and also sisters, in the land of jihad at the moment, with a Glock 19, yeah? Most of you playboy guys ain’t seen this yet. All I’ve come to do here is what’s prescribed to us as Muslim men. I also invite all over to the land of jihad. Allahu Akba!”
Then he fires his weapon into the night sky.
Coming Back Home Someday these jihadists are coming home. Some already have.
Mehdi Nemmouch, the French gunman who killed four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, had a homemade flag of ISIS, the terrorists who have setup an Islamic state in Iraq, when he was arrested in May.
Nemmouch went to fight in Syria in 2012.
The French government knows it has many more like Nemmouch in France: Muslim radicals who went to Syria to fight in the civil war and are bring jihad back to Europe.
One of the most important functions of legal immigration is health screening to keep out disease. That process was depicted in the Godfather film where the young Vito Corleone was quarantined for three months on Ellis Island upon arrival because he was feared to have smallpox.
But today, quarantines and other public health measures are often considered too mean-spirited to apply to invasive foreigners. After all, what about the diverse kiddies’ self-esteem that might be damaged by treating them as the infectious disease distributers that they are?
As a result, outbreaks are forming up in the chaotic alien flop-houses set up by the administration. A center in Artesia NM where 600 alien families reside is on lockdown indefinitely because of communicable disease. Fox’s William La Jeunesse reported that 89 foreigners there tested positive for tuberculosis, though the problem is not isolated. More generally, agents have been exposed to TB as well as contracting scabies, lice and chicken pox.
Plus, “Unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities has resulted in unsanitary conditions and exposure to human waste.” So are the third-worlders crapping on the floor? Inquiring minds want to know.
Americans pay high taxes to maintain a strong public health system to protect our people. But all the normal rules go out the window when illegal aliens are brought into the mix.
Unaccompanied illegal immigrant children with communicable diseases have given or exposed federal agents to lice, scabies, tuberculosis and chicken pox, according to a report issued Thursday by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General.
In two cases, the children of a border patrol agent got chicken pox contracted from their parents’ exposure to unaccompanied children with chicken pox, according to the report on conditions of detention centers and border facilities.
The report, the first in a series, is based on 87 unannounced visits to 63 detention centers being used to house unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in Texas, Arizona and California during July 1-16.
“Many UAC and family units require treatment for communicable diseases, including respiratory illnesses, tuberculosis, chicken pox, and scabies,” said the memorandum summarizing the report.
“UAC and family unit illnesses and unfamiliarity with bathroom facilities resulted in unsanitary conditions and exposure to human waste in some holding facilities. Continue reading this article
The case is painfully familiar to many others in the government’s normal inattention to public safety when illegal aliens are concerned. The killer, Mexican alien Raul Corona (also killed in the crash), was clearly a dangerous man. He had been charged with assaulting a police officer and burglary in Colorado, but was not deported. When sentenced, he was given probation and allowed to stay in the country, despite his attack on an officer.
“I am writing this letter to you regarding illegal immigrants.
“As a tax paying, law abiding citizen of the United States, I WANT my voice heard on this issue. My son, Sergeant Brandon Mendoza, an officer who was with the City of Mesa, Arizona police department, was killed in a tragic head on collision on May 12, 2014 by a wrong way driver on our freeways. This man happened to be an illegal immigrant, was in this country illegally, convicted of previous crimes, no Social Security number, no valid driver’s license BUT he had purchased a vehicle and registered it to drive in Maricopa County Arizona.
“I had my son’s life STOLEN from me by a man who didn’t value his life, was 3X the legal limit drunk, was high on Meth, drove for over 35 miles THE WRONG WAY on 4 different freeways and had NO BUSINESS BEING IN THIS COUNTRY!!!
“The Federal Government knew he, Raul Silva Corona , was an illegal immigrant when he was convicted on crimes in 1994 in Colorado. The prosecutors were “lenient” on him and several charges were dismissed. When he was convicted of these crimes and 1994 and the government knew he was in the country illegally, why wasn’t he deported? Why are any of these illegal criminals in this country ??
“I am furious that the Federal Government allowed this criminal to stay in this country and KILL my son! I have attached several articles for you to PERSONALLY read about my son. He was an Icon with the City of Mesa Police Department. He was instrumental in making life better for people of all walks of life in the park project he took on. He was humble, selfless, worked many hours off the clock helping disadvantaged children and often used his own money to do things for the community, including “adopting” children at Christmas to provide them with gifts….out of his own money!!

Voters think President Obama is doing a poor job handling the latest immigration crisis and believe he wants to let most of the new illegal immigrants stay here despite majority support for their quick deportation.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters want the U.S. government to send these new illegal immigrant children home as quickly as possible. Thirty-six percent (36%) think instead that the government should process them more slowly to determine whether any should be allowed to stay in the United States. Ten percent (10%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
However, only 22% believe the president is interested in doing what most voters want – sending most of these new illegal immigrants home. Fifty-four percent (54%) believe he is more interested in letting most of them stay in the United States. One-in-four voters (24%) aren’t sure what Obama has in mind.
Among voters who favor quick deportation, 63% believe the president is more interested in letting most of these illegals stay in the United States.
Just 22% of all voters now rate the Obama administration’s handling of this latest immigration crisis as good or excellent. Over half (53%) think the administration is doing a poor job in this area.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 29-30, 2014 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
Muslims residing in the United States and in general are more distrusted as time goes by, because the case is rather substantial that Allah’s acolytes are not suitable residents for Western nations. As Dutch politician Geert Wilders has said, “Islam is the biggest threat to freedom today.”
(Reuters) – How Americans view Arabs and Muslims has gotten worse in recent years, with negative feelings strongest among Republicans and senior citizens, according to a poll released on Tuesday.
Only 27 percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of Muslims, down from 35 percent in 2010, according to the Zogby poll, commissioned by the non-profit Arab American Institute. Favorable attitudes toward Arabs dropped to 32 percent from 43 percent in 2010.
The poll also found that 42 percent of respondents believe an American Muslim’s religion would influence his or her decision making in an important government job. The same percentage believe it is justified for law enforcement to profile Arab Americans or American Muslims.
“For me, the biggest concern in the poll is not just that people don’t like us, but what not liking us translates to,” said Institute president Jim Zogby, who is of Lebanese descent. He said attitudes towards profiling and Arabs and Muslims in government posts “affect our ability to function as communities here.” Continue reading this article
On Wednesday, America’s Senator spoke against the President’s announced plan to give work permits and guarantees of no deportation for invasive foreign lawbreakers, remarking “So the President is saying that ‘I have legislation and the House won’t pass it, therefore I’m going to do it myself.’ It’s one of the most pathetic excuses for abuse of power by a court or a president that you can imagine.”
Movement Toward Broad Steps, Including Work Permits, Follows Demise of Legislation
WASHINGTON—For months, President Barack Obama said there were limits to his power to protect people living illegally in the U.S. from deportation. Now, he is considering broad action to scale back deportations that could include work permits for millions of people, according to lawmakers and immigration advocates who have consulted with the White House.
The shift in White House thinking came after House Republicans said they wouldn’t take up immigration legislation, which Mr. Obama and advocates for immigrants had hoped would create a path to citizenship for many in the U.S. illegally.
Mr. Obama already has offered work permits and safe harbor from deportation to so-called Dreamers—about 500,000 people brought to the U.S. illegally as children. The new action could expand those protections to their parents or to other sets of illegal immigrants.
Such a move would please many Hispanic Americans and immigrant-rights advocates, who have pressed Mr. Obama to use executive authority to protect illegal immigrants with roots in the U.S. But it certainly would anger Republicans, who say Mr. Obama already has overstepped his authority by expanding protections from deportation.
“Such unlawful and unconstitutional action, if taken, cannot stand,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) said on the Senate floor this week. Continue reading this article
Life is easy for foreigners in America, where earlier assimilation standards are now considered mean-spirited. Liberal values mean immigration of various legality is all about newbie rights and nothing about their responsibility. These days the non-Americans hardly need knowledge of English to get their free stuff.
Nobody ever suggests that foreign persons residing in the United States might learn English, for their own safety at least.
The latest conquest eyed by diversity hacks is prescription drug labeling, because it’s so UNFAIR to foreigners to make them take free drugs that have instructions in ENGLISH.
Of course, additional services tacked on to prescription drugs adds to the cost for citizens, who now will pay through ObamaCare. And there’s no end to languages that will be demanded. They want Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Korean, and Vietnamese. now, but what about the indigenous languages of the new Central American indigenous aliens like Kanjobal and Quiche?
Right now, drug labels appear only in English in California, yet 44 percent of Californians speak a language other than English at home. (Getty Images)
Every Saturday morning, a steady stream of Chinese and Vietnamese patients line up at the Paul Hom Asian Clinic in Sacramento. Most of them speak little to no English.
Patient assistance director Danny Tao says people come here to get free medical consultations and drug prescriptions. But, he says that when patients take those prescriptions to be filled, they don’t understand the instructions on the label.
“They go pick them up, and we don’t exactly know if they’re taking it or not — or if they know how to take it,” Tao said.
Tao says drug labels at most pharmacies in California are printed only in English. That puts patients in danger of taking of any number or errors — taking too much medication or not enough, taking it at the wrong time of day, and more. Such mistakes can cause serious harm or even death.
Tao says that for the drugs his clinic supplies directly, all have a bilingual label.
“It’s going to be English/Chinese or English/Vietnamese,” he said. “By the time they get home they know exactly how to take the medication, because it’s in their own language.”
This week California’s Board of Pharmacy will discuss new regulations that would require all pharmacies in California to provide translated labels on prescription drug bottles. Statewide, 44 percent of Californians speak a language other than English at home. New York approved a similar rule last year to make it easier for non-English speakers to take their medications properly and avoid costly mistakes. Continue reading this article
WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on the American public today to rally Congress against the President’s openly declared threat to implement, by executive order, the amnesty that Congress has rejected:
“How Congress chooses to act in the coming hours and days will determine whether the President succeeds in his plan to nullify the immigration laws of the United States.
Just yesterday, TIME magazine reported that the President is considering a grant of ‘work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants.’ Permitting those illegally present in the U.S. to work and take jobs is contrary to plain law, which the President has no power to change. Yet Democratic members of Congress have openly crowed about these planned executive actions.
It has now been extensively reported that these executive actions will likely expand his Deferred Action program (DACA) to apply to an additional 5–6 million adult illegal immigrants. The existing DACA program has been widely misunderstood. The executive action did not, as The Hill writes today, only result in ‘deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants.’ Illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. have already, as a practical matter, been immune from enforcement under this Administration. DACA applies to individuals up to 30 years of age and provides actual amnesty papers, photo ID, and work permits to illegal immigrants—who can then take any job in America.
The President’s planned executive orders would expand this permitting program to another 5–6 million illegal immigrants. This would effectively end immigration enforcement in America.
No Member—House or Senate, Democrat or Republican—should support any bill with respect to the border crisis that does not include language explicitly prohibiting the Administration from taking such action. Congress must foreclose any possibility of these unlawful executive actions before congressional funding is granted. This is an essential precondition.
The American people have begged and pleaded for years for our laws to be enforced. We have people in our own country living in violence, fear, and poverty every single day. They have demanded an immigration policy that puts their jobs, wages, and communities first. Every citizen should pick up the phone and ask of their congressional representative: where do you stand?” Continue reading this article
The first day back to school is looking pretty dreadful for many American kids, who will experience more diversity in their classrooms with resources stretched to the limit because of 30,000 young illegal aliens being dumped around the country by the administration.
Border kids costs more to educate, about $1,900 per head. Teachers must be bilingual. The students will need health care and psychological services because many arrive sick and traumatized by things they’ve seen and experienced on their journeys north.
On a Sunday Fox News segment, documentary filmmaker Dennis Michael Lynch pointed out the dangers to public health created by Washington’s open borders, noting that 85 percent of the crossers are family units with at least one adult who are simply released into the general public. “With school starting in next month we’ve got ourselves a real problem because these people are carrying those same diseases, yet nobody has checked them for it… Now these children are all starting to go to school in the beginning of September,” Lynch remarked. The illegal alien students will not be required to show they have necessary shots because they will all arrive at once and the normal screening system will collapse.
I would love to see a poll of parents with kids in K-12 public school and how the family feels about their youngsters being both endangered and shortchanged. Another interesting fact will be how many American kids are transferred to private schools this fall.
American kids and teenagers will be sharing their already-crowded classrooms with tens of thousands of ill-educated Central American migrants this fall, because President Obama is distributing perhaps 100,000 Central American migrants across the country.
The Central American student “have very, very limited amounts of education [and] in some cases, they cannot count to 10,” said Caroline Woodason, assistant director for student support at the public schools in Dalton, Ga. “They can’t turn on a computer. They’ve never even seen a computer,” she told the Dalton Daily Citizen.
In Fairfax, Va., “teachers [are] dealing with children not just learning English but years below expected grade/achievement level,” education specialist Robin Hamby, told The Washington Post. In early 2014, her district already had 5,192 Central American students, up 22 percent since 2011.
In Lynn, Mass., the foreign youths “are not literate in any language,” said Catherine Latham, the superintendent of schools. “The school system is overwhelmed, our health department is overwhelmed,” she told Fox News in Boston.
“There’s no way a [foreign] child is going to be able to come to school ready and able to learn if we don’t address some of the other issues they’re facing,” such as an upbringing in a violent culture, Debra Duardo, executive director for human services for the huge Los Angeles Unified School District, told the Chicago Tribune.
On Saturday, quite a few friends of American sovereignty showed up in ultra-blue Boston (!) for a rally to save the country from the alien influx. What a pleasant surprise.
Apparently the protest was organized by Jeff Kuhner, a local radio guy (and legal immigrant from Canada). His page on WRKO-AM radio invited listeners to a “Stop the Invasion Rally.” where participants could “Join Jeff Kuhner for a major rally to protest Governor Deval Patrick’s plan to house illegal aliens from Central America in Massachusetts.”
Here’s a clip of Kuhner:
A local news report thought the participants were angry. Well, good. We are.
An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters.
While Bree Sison of CBS Boston estimated that the gathering drew hundreds of people, Jeff Kuhner, the host of WRKO’s The Kuhner Report, who organized the rally, put the number closer to 10,000 people.
People carrying signs that said “Deport illegals,” and “Americans before illegals” stood just outside the State House from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Kuhner told Boston.com that he himself is a legal immigrant.
Kuhner came to the United States in the 1990s on a work visa as he worked towards a Ph. D. Still a Canadian citizen, he was issued a green card in 2006. Kuhner said he is currently in the process of becoming a naturalized citizen.
“I’ve never seen any kind of a backlash like this before on any issue ever. People in this state are livid. They feel betrayed by the political elite,” Kuhner said of Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision for Massachusetts to offer shelter to unaccompanied minors.
This week, a state official said it remained “unclear” how many unaccompanied minors crossing the nation’s southern border illegally would be coming to Massachusetts and how many could stay in the state longer. The state has offered to house up to 1,000 children at one of two secure facilities for up to four months.
Kuhner told Boston.com that he thought Saturday’s rally in Boston may well become a national story. “We made the Drudge Report.”
“These are not children. When you say child, the implication is 4, 5, 6 [years old]. They’re teenagers – many of them are gangbangers … If you’re 15, you’re not a child. A child is 12 and under.”
A week ago, I blogged about the Mayor of Lynn Massachusetts and her struggles to make her city budget work under the strain of hundreds of Central American children (Lynn, Massachusetts, ‘On the Brink’ from Dumped Illegal Alien Kid Costs). She has had to hire new staff to handle foreign kids, many of whom speak neither English nor Spanish, which means fewer resources going to citizen kids.
But no good deed goes unpunished in multicultural society, and Mayor Judith Kennedy was pounced upon by a pro-illegal alien provocateur accusing her of calling the foreigners criminals when in fact the Mayor merely discussed the fiscal problems. (To hear foreign lawbreakers called “criminals” you have to read patriotic blogs.)
The illegal aliens want maximum free stuff, and they want taxpayer-serfs to be submissive when delivering it.
Amazingly, the anti-border boosters whine that the schools insist on keeping out “students” who are actually adults. Certainly local parents don’t want 25-year-old gang-bangers attending school with their teen kids. Safety for all students should be a top priority, but it apparently is not among some.
LYNN, Mass. — The national debate over an unprecedented wave of Central American young people entering the country illegally is more of a practical challenge in places like Lynn, a former industrial city outside Boston that’s thousands of miles from the U.S.-Mexico border.
There, city officials complain newly arriving Guatemalan children are straining classroom resources, and the mayor and school superintendent have faced criticism for suggesting adult immigrants are posing as teens to attend school.
The surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally has breathed new life into what has been a long-simmering controversy in Lynn, and the debate is happening in communities around the country as residents and local officials are faced with providing services for the children.
In Michigan, a social service organization’s plan to house child immigrants from Central America in the town of Vassar has prompted multiple demonstrations, which have extracted a toll on the community of about 2,600 about 70 miles northwest of Detroit, said Vassar City Manager Brad Barrett. For example, police have had to add staff on duty during public meetings.
“Everybody has the right to assemble, but it takes additional time and resources,” he said.
In Massachusetts, Lynn Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy said the new students have been entering her city’s school system in large numbers for at least two years — 65 from Guatemala in 2012 and another 130 last year — and stretch district resources because they require special attention to address their limited education and English.
“I don’t want to give the impression that we in Lynn are anti-immigrant,” the mayor said in an interview. “This is strictly an issue of economics. … Our budget and our community are going to implode.” Continue reading this article
