The National Review online is reporting that the Border Patrol is being forced to unite illegal gang members with their illegal families in the U.S.
Border Patrol officials are not turning away those with gang member affiliations.
Chris Cabrera, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 said he represents an agent who was told to unite an MS-13 gang member with his illegal family residing in the U.S. He doesn’t have a criminal record in the U.S. but is a known criminal in his own country.
MS-13 is one of the notorious illegal alien gangs operating throughout the U.S. at this time.
Agents spotting gang tattoos are told to treat them as if they were just like everyone else.
“I’ve heard people come in and say, ‘You’re going to let me go, just like you let my mother go, just like you let my sister go. You’re going to let me go as well, and the government’s going to take care of us,’” Cabrera says. “Until we start mandatory detentions, mandatory removals, I don’t think anything is going to change. As a matter of fact, I think it’s going to get worse.”
“It’s just frustrating to know that we do all this paperwork just for them to walk out the door,” Cabrera says. “When these people get released they call back home and they say, ‘Hey, you know what? We got released, and if you come with your family they’re going to release you as well.’”
Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson said: “It’s upsetting that a lot of them are 16 or 17 years old and a lot of them are not going to face deportation.”
A thousand or more are coming in illegally each day.
Cabrera says he thinks the surge in unaccompanied children crossing the border is policy-based. [Emphasis mine]
PJ Media and Fusion reported that Honduran president Juan Orlando Hernandez said the stream of people from his country are possibly because they are confused about how to obtain legal status in the U.S. He said it was also due to gang violence and called on the U.S. to help as if it were our responsibility.
Hernandez said further that these children entering illegally have a “complete right” to be reunited with their illegal alien families in the U.S.
I’m sure Honduras would treat our children with the same “humanity” were the situation reversed.
Obama has made it clear that this is the policy. He has called it a “humanitarian crisis” while it is obviously an invasion and he is probably not looking to send the children back, he is looking for sponsors and then who knows.
The children are a distraction as many far worse actors enter this country. The children are distracting us from the fact that we are being invaded.
Mark Greenberg, the acting assistant secretary of the Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS), described the process they will go through:
“Our duty is to get the child to a sponsor,” he said. “While they are with the sponsor, they are still fully subject to removal proceedings. And the sponsors have an obligation to cooperate with getting children to the proceedings, to cooperate in the removal process and to report to DHS and to the Justice Department if there’s a change in address.”
Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said Thursday that HHS is “required under the law to act pursuant to the best interest of the child.”
The “best interest” will undoubtedly be to keep them here illegally with their illegal families. As a result, more will come.
This is our new illegal policy for illegals and unless Congress takes action, it will continue and it will fundamentally and irrevocably change our nation.
Our Constitution is our rule of law – it is the law of the land – and it applies to natural born or naturalized citizens, not streams of foreigners coming here illegally or terrorists sitting in GITMO.
There are two references to naturalization in the Constitution:
The first reference that specifically mentions “naturalization, ” is found in Article I, Section 8 in creating the authority of the Congress, “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization.” From a Constitutional stand point it is the responsibility of Congress to establish all laws and rules of naturalization or immigration.
It is Congress, not the President, who establishes immigration law and all applicable rules.
The second reference is in the 14th Amendment and it states that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States,” are, “citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
The intent of the Framers was that only citizens of the United States whether born or naturalized are granted the rights and privileges that are available in America.
This president is violating our rule of law and should face justice for his illegal acts.
While two American children are imprisoned with their mother in the Sudan and while a U.S. soldier who fought for his country sits in a Mexican prison, our president is releasing Taliban terrorists and allowing gang members into the U.S. As Iraq falls to jihadis who are sworn to destroy the U.S., he is working fundraisers and basking in delight in Rancho Mirage with a gay couple to bolster his street creds with his extremist friends in the LGBT community.
Barack Obama needs to be impeached.
