Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras are promoting Obama’s policy to defer deportation to minors brought to the United States as children by their parents — known as “Dreamers” and, telling their readers that this applies to all minors entering the United States.
According to our Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, “Almost all agree that a child who crossed the border illegally with their parents, or in search of a father or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than adult violators of the law,”
Signed by President Barack Obama in 2012, the policy grants temporary legal status to young illegal immigrants for up to two years. It was recently extended for two more years. Estimates indicate that 60,000 children under 18 will enter the U.S. illegally alone this year. This number is expected to grow to nearly 130,000 next year. Over 90% of these children are coming from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Rumor in Honduras travels fast from person to person falsely informing parents that mothers with small children will be allowed to remain in the US if they cross the border, or that children traveling alone can join their undocumented family members who are already living in the United States.
“U.S. extends deportation safeguard against undocumented youth”
This is the headline of an article published in El Mundo, a newspaper in El Salvador. It describes how President Obama has extended for two more years the Deferred Action Program as announced by DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. “With the renewal of DACA, we act according to our values and code of this great nation. But the biggest task of comprehensive immigration reform is yet to come, “said Secretary of Homeland Security.
Recently, the Honduras Ambassador in the US, Jorge Milla Reyes, went to McAllen, Texas to visit children from Honduras who had entered the US illegaly “to make sure these children were receiving the needed help from the US government.” Glad to know someone from Honduras cares for their children, right? Do these Central American governments have no shame?
A statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers stated that “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.”
Mexican cartels are in control in the flow of illegal immigrants across Mexico using human smugglers, “coyotes”
Breitbart News has revealed that Mexican cartels are in control in the flow of illegal immigrants across Mexico using human smugglers, “coyotes”. Keeping border agents busy with social work allows the cartels to traffic drugs at will.
Is Obama employing a Cloward-Piven maneuver? Both, Representative Steve King and Representative Steve Stockman, believe Obama is employing this theory which he learned while studying at Columbia University. The theory is based on deliberately creating chaotic situations that would overwhelm the economy and the government to pave the way for complete control by a dictatorial regime.
Obama is trying to flood our country with newly arrived “future Democrats”, that is, people who would be grateful to him for not only allowing them to remain in our country but also for providing them with education and welfare benefits paid by the American taxpayers. They would be forever grateful to the Democrats who will eventually have a whole new constituency to vote for them. In the meanwhile, those Central American countries would have ridden themselves of the poorest and most ignorant citizens while their government officials continue to enjoy an elitist lifestyle.
But Obama and the Democrats in Congress are not the only ones responsible for the chaotic border. Joining this administration in their desire to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants and encourage minors to become “DREAMERS, are the Chamber of Commerce, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Republican establishment, with the most notable being “the Gang of Eight” Senators (McCain, Rubio, Flake, Graham, Durbin, Menendez, Schumer, Bennet), Governor Jeb Bush, Grover Nordquist, Karl Rove, Congressman Paul Ryan, Congressman Eric Cantor, and several business leaders such as Mark Zuckerberg. It seems only fair that those who are responsible for encouraging illegal immigration be held accountable for their actions, at least for the money it would cost the American people to provide for the children while in the United States and to pay for their trip home. The best way to reunite these families is to send all these children back to their own country.
Are “We The People” going to allow our country to continue to be invaded by foreigners who are seeking only welfare benefits? How clever and how malevolent for parents in Central America to allow their children to leave home and travel through dangerous territory to later claim victimhood and seek “reunification of families.” But then again, Jeb Bush would call it “acts of love.” The newspaper from Honduras, La Prensa, recently published a story about a couple from Guatemala who entered the US illegally nine years ago and have recently been told that their oldest son, a ten year old they had left behind as a baby, had crossed the border with a coyote and had been abandoned in Texas. This couple, while living in the US as illegal aliens, now have two other children who were born here. Is it an act of love to leave behind your baby and break the law in our country by crossing the border illegally? And now because they had two children while living in our country, all five of them will be allowed to remain here and eventually become citizens? Where is the respect for the rule of law? Where is the love for American taxpayers?
These Central American children are being used by the Marxist Democrats and the elitist Republicans for their own purposes
We are not responsible for every poor and uneducated human being in this world. Our government was not instituted as a welfare agency. It was formed to represent the needs and wishes of the citizens of our country and the elected officials have no right to use taxpayers’ money to pander for votes or to act as philanthropists.
Liberals want us to feel sorry and guilty for what happens to people in other countries. Their solution is always based on feelings instead of what actually works. It is much easier to ease their consciences by allowing taxpayers to pick up the tab than to actually do something that is practical and/or costs them effort. The American people are not fools and they are not willing to subsidize political ambitions while destroying our country.
It is never about the children! These Central American children are being used by the Marxist Democrats and the elitist Republicans for their own purposes. Neither Democrats nor Republicans are serious about securing the border. For the Democrats, an open border means more votes from low information voters. For the Republicans it means more illegal aliens entering the labor force at lower wages to please their special interests friends and the Chamber of Commerce. For the rest of us, it means the end of our democratic Republic.
When will Congress put an end to the lawlessness of this President?
Elvira Fernandez Hasty was born in La Habana, Cuba, to immigrants from Spain. She attended a private Catholic school for women, French Dominicans School, until the age of fifteen. At that time, the Castro regime militia invaded her home one night in order to question her 20 year old sister, Rose, about her involvement in “counter-revolution” at the University. After some months of anguish, my father arranged for Rose to obtain diplomatic protection from the country of Honduras, and the decision was also made to send me away before confiscation of private schools by the communist government. My sister flew to Honduras under the protection of the Ambassador on January 24, 1961, while I left the country for Florida the next day via the Pedro Pan organization that was formed to protect Cuban children from Marxist indoctrination.
After finishing high school in Florida and working at an electric company billing department, Elvira continued her studies at St. Mary College in Kansas. She graduated cum laude with a BS in Chemistry and later received her PhD in Chemistry from the University of Illinois at Urbana, IL. Dr. Hasty spent twenty years in college teaching and research, becoming Associate Professor of Chemistry and Chairperson at Mundelein College in Chicago.
In 1997, Elvira and her husband James, moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, where she currently resides. She has been politically active since then, first in the Republican Party and lately in her own conservative organization, Ponte Vedra Conservative Women, a group of conservative women concerned about the future of our country. We are united by our common desire to preserve our Constitution, the principles of our Founding Fathers, and our Judeo/Christian values.
