Illegal Alien Idiocy

So now Obama wants $4 billion more to address a problem that he created: a flood of illegal alien kids and parents; many bearing gifts. That is, if you consider scabies, lice, measles, TB, and other assorted afflictions “gifts”. This is precisely why legal immigrants (some 1.2 million annually) are medically screened prior to admission, and it’s precisely why many of us are adamantly opposed to tolerating illegal aliens in our country.

And while Barry wants another $4 billion to deal with this mess, former Congressman Ernest Istook has a better solution: for one-half of one percent of the amount Barry’s requested, we could fly them all back home. It seems like a far more reasonable approach, and it’s certainly much more cost-effective. Barry claims that we somehow have a “responsibility for these people”; we do not. We didn’t ask them to come here illegally, and a large majority of us want them to go home.

But because “we have a responsibility”, Barry plans to house, feed, and otherwise care for them for at least one year. It seems clear that his plan is to simply wait us out; given his corrupt and scandal-ridden administration, something’s bound to pop up in the coming months to serve as a distraction. When it does, they’ll quietly begin releasing the illegals in dribs and drabs; a few dozen here, a hundred there. Who’s going to notice?

Regarding the unaccompanied juveniles, officials such as Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson don’t seem to have read the law. Johnson told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the top priority is “doing right by the children.” Actually, the law states the top priority is to repatriate those children to their country of origin.

Before the language of that controversial 2008 statute outlines the red-tape processing, it explicitly states the goal of that process, namely that “the Secretary of Homeland Security, in conjunction with the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, shall develop policies and procedures to ensure that unaccompanied alien children in the United States are safely repatriated to their country of nationality or of last habitual residence.”

    “… a problem that he created…” – that’s the Alinsky way – and the Liberal way:first, create chaos, then heroically step in with plans to fix it.

    If indeed they’re refugees, why aren’t their parents also refugees and showing up at the border?

    From an immigration issues website:

    “A medical exam is required for all immigrant visas and some nonimmigrant visas, as well as for refugees and adjustment of status applicants. The purpose of the medical exam is to determine if you have any health conditions that need attention prior to immigrating.”

    There must have been a recent Executive Order that changed :”is required ” to “would be nice”..

      Over half are accompanied, making them eligible for immediate deportation. Of the rest, the 2008 anti-trafficking law says that UACs need to be processed through the system – unless the UACs are from Mexico, in which case they, too, are eligible for immediate deportation. But Barry wants to process all of them through the system at a cost of some $4 billion and in contravention of the very law he claims prevents him from repatriating them.

        I think the $4 billion would have been better spent on securing the border with more infrastructure – bigger fences, detectors &c.

        PS: I’m working up a post on the Rule of Law. we once had that.

        Israel knows how to build actual fences. Ours have climbing structures built-in. I’m thinking that it’d be a lot less expensive to set up National Guard compounds along the border, though.
