Barack Obama, Deporter in Chief, Wants to Speed Up Deportation of Immigrant Kids, Threatens Executive Action

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

President Barack Obama, whose administration has already deported more than 2 million people since he took office, wants to send back children coming to the U.S. from Central America as soon as earthly possible.

Today, the White House made public a letter to Congressional leaders seeing additional funds to deal with the thousands of unaccompanied kids from Central America, who are crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, fleeing out-of-control violence in their home countries.

What, you escaped violence in Central America? Well, you've gotta go back, buddy.

The letter does not mention an actual amount, but several media outlets, including the Los Angeles Times, have reported that the administration will seek "$2 billion in emergency funding" for what the president has referred to as a "humanitarian crisis."

Obama's letter also calls for giving U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, "additional authority to exercise discretion in processing the return and removal of unaccompanied minor children from non-contiguous countries like Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador."

In a recent interview with ABC News, Obama referred to a law signed by President George W. Bush, which mandates that unaccompanied minors from countries other than Mexico or Canada be turned over to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services within 72 hours of detention.

The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 states that HHS must then place "an unaccompanied alien child...in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child."

HHS also must ensure "safe and secure placements" for these children, either with a "suitable family member" or in foster care, while the child's case is winding its way through immigration court.

Obama kvetched about this to ABC's George Stephanopoulos.

"We have to house these kids and take care of them until the machinery, under current law, allows us to send them back," he said.

Hey, thank goodness for George W., right?

You're the one that wrote the comment on the article, Penny. In addition to all the other liberal bullshit you've harassed on the rose law group site and other articles throughout the local community. You've left a trail of incompetence, blaming Republicans for every problem you think you have. Wait until you contract MRSA from all the diseases your beloved immigrants are bringing in then I'm sure that will be the Republican's fault too. I'll point FOR THE SECOND TIME that I merely referenced your comment on the article in which you blame Republicans, not "veterans" but since you're "so intelligent" I'm not surprised you can't read. Hahhaha. Youre a schmuck.

More illegal immigrants have been deported under Obama's watch than any president in history and social conservatives still attack him for being too lenient on illegal immigration. If we had social conservatives running this country, we might as well bring back Hitler.

Impressive. You use an article out of Arizona Republic as a reference to the notion that I blame Vets. Sorry, but your connection sucks.

Take a moment to re-read... perhaps in all of your "education" you failed to encounter complex sentence structuring.

Geez. I don't recall anything about blaming Veterans. I don't have any reason to say that. I'm not sure you can read either. But when I said under, it was not in relationship to you being under me. It was more like under educated, but I didn't want to say it. There it's out. You got it.

And... If the Republicans ever did pass immigration reform you'd find a way to call them Racist.. you're the "type"

Additionally, I googled your name and I find it atrocious you place blame for thousands of Veterans dying during a democratic administration on the "Republicans". You'd find a way to blame a Republican for the oozing boil on your ass.

The real reason AZ is at the bottom in all educational areas is because of the INFLUX of English and Second Language (ESL) students... duh.

You're so right. I wish I hadn't of gone to college so I too could be part of your made-up statistics.

And that's why Arizona ranks at the bottom of education in the USA, because conservatives keep dumbing it down.

Alot of ignorant progressives also reside in Arizona and get upset when the majority of the conservative population doesn't see eye to eye to them.

I love how conservatives say they are racist as they continue to write racists remarks defending that they are not racists. Good grief. A lot of hate-filled people live in Arizona.

What about them? If they're illegal, they're illegal. Accusing me of being "racist" because I don't care to fund illegal immigrants housing, healthcare, food, and work programs won't work here Ms. Linda.

Deportation is justice. It restores the rule of law by which legitimate immigrants operate. Unauthorized foreign nationals tremble and scurry in the face of Justice for they are cowards and frauds.

Wow, nice label. And what do you call muslims? Oh wait, it's not politically correct to do hateful labels on muslims, or Jews, or buddhists... just Christians.
Nice.
With regard to Hobby Lobby, I'm going to make a huge leap of faith (us redneck Jesus freaks do that, inexplicably) and share with you the Supreme Court's core rational for its decision, in hopes that somehow you will understand the dangers to our First Amendment:
"The HHS contraceptive mandate substantially burdens the exercise of religion."

I assume you mean PBS?
Here is the whole truth, though both sides usually won't do their homework, CBS, NBS, ABS, MSLSD, CNN (Communist News Network) and Faux News--including Bain Capital controlled talk radio--are all different sides of the same coin.
They get us thinking demlican v republicrat, brown v. white, rich v. poor, etc. and while we are divided and distracted, they destroy the economy, our culture, our language, our borders--everything that defines a nation.
The end is coming if we don't start seeing the few families of offshore private banksters that own and control the whole thing, and fight back by starting with the local political candidates that demonstrated they absolutely will uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution... Start with the local sheriff, he/she's the best place to start.

WTF are you talking about?  This made absolutely no sense.

What the hell movie are you watching?
So what you're saying is if someone is a conservative, they are racist?
That is hugely offensive and uncalled for. Based on the kind of logic and assumptions you have employed here, you wouldn't know any truth except that which has been presented to you as acceptable for your social circle.

and your point?...
Are you saying just keep letting them in and turn the U.S. into another terd world cesspit?

Wow, you really thought that one through, didn't you? And what do you think of "non-racist" groups like La Raza?
I think you need to do something about your neural pathways that are rigidly formed for you via taxpayer-paid leftist teachers and prostiticians, as well as the corp.-owned presstitute media.
You are in big trouble young man and you had better wake up to this whole demlican/republicrat game they are playing on you. Study the Constitution for yourself (not how others tell you it should be read) and investigate the foundations of what really started and kept this country together before you go off and label others based on the military/industrial/govt. complex's strategy to impoverish and divide this nation against ourselves, turn it into a North American Union, etc. That will be a disaster beyond what you can imagine.

And I don't want to fund any housing for you, like a tax deduction on your home if u have one. If u ever need social services, go fuck yourself. And if you have brats as filthy minded as u, fuck giving them free education. Or a federally backed student loan.

@fishingblues That's right.  The ultimate expression of socialism is in the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc.
E.g.,
NAZI = Nationalsozialismus = National Socialism

200 million deaths in the 20th century apparently still hasn't been enough for people to figure out what a truly abhorrent idea socialism is...

@fishingblues  I am a classical liberal, of the variety that was begun as abolitionists...but wow, has the definition lost all semblance of cogent meaning. "Liberal" and "progressive" are words that no longer resemble what was intended and instead are more akin to a mental disorder.

@TheyCallMeMrTibbs  Wow, getting a "deduction" from something that shouldn't be taxed in the first place is commensurate with giving free handouts to illegals to medicate, educate, incarcerate, etc. but I'm sure your just fine with vets being homeless and needlessly dying from neglect due to bloated social service nincompoopery.
But that's okay, I'm sure your Marxist-minded labeling makes you feel justified anyway.
Enjoy your FEMA camp when your criminal marxist idols/tools let you know you were never "in on it" to begin with.

@fishingblues  I am a Constitutionalist, if I must be saddled with a label.
I do like most libertarians, however, the govt./media complex's COINTELPRO has wreaked a bit of havoc lately with the "libertarian" term and they are increasingly trying to hijack things toward atheistic anarchy, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense when you really boil things down.
Anyway, I get the gist of where you're coming from and I wish more people could.  Then, we could shake the criminal globalist puppets in the White House & Congress like so many fleas off of a dog...
But people are too divided and way too easily led down the demlican/republicrat "us v. them" path at this time...add to that the incomplete (or nonexistent) picture of history--and the distractions, programming and hypnosis of entertainment, gossip, sports, video games, self-medication, etc... and you have a perfect recipe for an uninformed electorate that only cares about voting in their own handouts, regardless of the long term harm (including for them!).
God help us.

Good to see another clear-headed, thinking individual on this blog.  There may be as many as three or four now.  


The Libertarian philosophy fits my profile exactly.  I am a strict fiscal conservative.  For all other things that have no negative bearing on fiscal matters, I am fairly liberal minded.  


Most of my posts are simply running at loony, self-absorbed, arrogant, smug, self-deluded liberals.  They take themselves so seriously and I do it for pure enjoyment.
