From the Huffingtonpost.com

Nearly 50,000 children have been caught crossing the border without parents since Oct. 1, The New York Times reported Monday.

Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.)..."our current border resources are entirely insufficient. It's up to Congress to provide the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services with the financial capacity to meet the needs of these children. It's also time to pass my bill, the Child Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which would place trained child welfare professionals at the border to identify trafficking victims and ensure all children at our border are treated with the kindness and basic human dignity they deserve."

Nothing is said about stopping these illegal aliens from getting into America. Apparently, according to Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), all children from planet earth are welcomed to America.

If you look at the pictures on the linked website, you will notice that some of the children have mustaches, others look to be in their 20's and older.

Well when you announce a free pass for illegals and a path to citizenship, that is the same as sending an invitation out to those who have no regard or respect for our laws. Every single illegal feels entitled to take from us. Obama has no problem offering up billions to support foreigners all to satisfy a specific voting group. He misleads the public as a norm. Look no further than parading a chemical engineer on stage and representing her as the average illegal. He could absolutely help to end this by announcing that there will be no path for any illegal entering the country from this pout on. He could end this insanity by putting Americans first for a change. He won't because that would take a few things the man has none of. Integrity, honor and loyalty to the American people.

The thing is this --- Too many low information voters don't know that today's democrats are NOT their grandfather's democrats. At one time, democrats could be counted on to look out for the poor, working and middle classes. They would have been horrified to discover that their constituents were either seeing their wages depressed or being replaced in the work force all due to illegal immigration. And those democrats of yore would have done something about it---and I don't mean amnesty either.

In other forums, I've tried telling the low information voters all of this but they refuse to believe it. According to them, democrats are perfect saints while republicans are the devil.

Today's democrats put illegal aliens ahead of the millions of suffering underemployed and unemployed American citizens. Low information voters are too ignorant to realize that by voting the straight "D" line like automatons, that they are cutting their own throats. I'm sure most democrat politicians, except for the bluedogs, are laughing themselves sick over how they've pulled a fast one on low information voters.

Neither party is looking out for Americans. However, at one time, I would have expected much, much better from the democrats.

It is only common sense that if we keep our borders opened and let all these illegals in, the American people will all suffer and have to pick up the tab with higher taxes including the working poor.

Years ago in the 70's I worked for the welfare department and one had strict rules .. there were visits by caseworkers and they had to meet a certain standard to get a meager amount of help. A welfare recipient had to partially pay for their food stamps. In today's money amount the recipient had to pay out of their welfare check 2/3's of their food stamps with their check.. if the family got $300 worth of food stamps , $200 would come out of their welfare check.. Of course in the 70's it would be much less dollar amounts.

Today they give away much more and make it much more comfortable . Now the illegals know this and come here in droves...we have a very cushy stand on illegals and because of that, it will get worse. It has become politically correct and acceptable to make the Americans pick up the tab for those that are breaking the law.

Why exactly do we need to "meet the needs of these children"? The thing we need to do is put up a secure fence along the border, and put in a one-way door. Push them back across the border, when they are home their country can provide for their needs. Not our taxpayers.

True. Cesar Chavez himself was NOT a pro-illegal like they try to make him out to be today. He and the old UFW was very much against flooding this country with impoverished cheap illegal labor. They were the ones who worked to end the Bracero program.

Walter Mondale and Ralph Abernathy marched with Cesar Chavez to the border to demand it be enforced.

So women and children are crossing the border and looking for border patrol.
Once "arrested" border patrol contacts their relatives here (also illegal) and arranges transportation.
Then transports these women and their children to bus stations in Texas/AZ and let them go.
Loaded planes are flying from Brownsville to other Texas cities as well as AZ.

This is what it amounts to..Border Patrol is the US Welcoming Committee with free transportation.

Actually nothing like the Mariel Boatlift.
I lived in south Florida during that time and was in the USCG.
Those captured were brought to Base Miami Beach for processing.

They weren't women and children. Castro emptied his prisons if you recall.
Those captured were mostly men.
Helicopters flew low along the beach each morning..the shores were dotted with rickety beached row boats.
Crime skyrocketed during that period.

And here you are comparing women and children with released prisoners.

Supreme Court rules against immigrants over visa eligibility
Yet another slap in the face for legal immigrants. Obama is willing to allow illegals to stay and grant them a path to citizenship, but legals must wait their turn and their children must go to the end of the line. The Obama admin is a disgrace.
