Obama Administration to Parents of Undocumented Kids: No "Permisos"

Undocumented children in government lockup watch a World Cup game on TV.
The Obama Administration sent out a warning in Spanish-language news media over the weekend that undocumented children entering the country would receive no "permisos."

In the open letter to parents in other countries, Jeh Johnson, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, describes the horrors that some unaccompanied minors risk while traveling, and cautions that the children will be placed in deportation proceedings.

Nine thousand children, mostly from Honduras, arrived in May alone, Johnson writes, bringing the total this year to 47,000. Whatever awful things they may be fleeing, including gang violence, trying to smuggle themselves into the United States "is not the solution."

Johnson makes direct reference to rumors that the Obama Administration had spurred the wave of undocumented children by issuing an executive order that allows qualified undocumented young people to legally live and work in the United States.

"The U.S. Government's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also called 'DACA,' does not apply to a child who crosses the U.S. border illegally today, tomorrow or yesterday," says Johnson. "To be eligible for DACA, a child must have been in the United States prior to June 15, 2007 - seven years ago."

Johnson writes that he's "looked into the faces" of some of the children and witnessed their vulnerability.

"The long journey is not only dangerous; there are no "permisos," "permits," or free passes at the end," he writes.

Poor Jan Brewer.  Her feelings were hurt.  Get over it Gov. Brewer.  Do something good for our state for once instead of griping, whining and complaining all the time.  That's all she does! It seems that the governor is not a player for the people.

It seems the south Americans have now come up with a cheap alternative for their birth control simply ship them north,

Why didn't the headline read 


"Obama Blathers Stupidly About Child Refuges..."

Finally I guess the bozos in Washington have started to wise up to the message that the American people are outraged!  It should have been No "Permisos" from the beginning because all those kids were only looking for amnesty and free handouts and a reason for their parents to be allowed to come here -- not because of any credible fear.  No more free passes. Send them all home!

Imagine if you leave town overnight and your son spreads the word that he's got a keg of beer and then stands at the door telling everybody that they can come in for a moment, while they decide where to go next, but they can't stay.


Then he tries to claim that he didn't throw a party.

If his name was Obama, his supporters would all agree that he's blameless.

The faster you scoop up these wayward whippersnappers and reintegrate them into their home countries, Mr. President, the faster you will regain any semblance of authority when it comes to protecting America's borders.

" The document issued to your child is not a "permiso," but a Notice To Appear in a deportation proceeding before an immigration judge."


As if any of them will.

The president is delirious he should be demanding our border agents to do the F"N job they are paid to do, get the red cross on the freaking border and with the help of the national guard get these people out of our country asap.

Don't people realize that Pres. O has sent more immigrants back home/ out of the country than any other president?

@arizonanewtimes.com hahahahahaha......you are an absolute fucking idiot and that proves it. do you honestly think infants from Mexico are so goddam mentally advanced  that they comprehend amnesty and handouts? do you think they are so mentally advanced that they can plan the future of themselves and other infants (yet have trouble with potty training??) good one you fucking twit. you are saying that the average illegal immigrants child is way more intellectually advanced then the average american voter. you just stated a reason we should be keeping those children here instead of our own.

boy oh boy do you know how to present an argument

Robert, it costs you, the taxpayer (assuming you have a job) $12,500 to deport ONE undocumented immigrant.

It makes more sense to bill the country of origin.

Come on….Please quit bashing the president.

He is not to blame.  Many people in Central American believed the spreaded rumor that if they go to the USA they will be greeted happily by the border patrol and be taken care of and .   That's exactly what these poor souls did, believing nothing but a rumor thus the influx to our borders. 

It is simply nauseauting that Gov. Brewer and Sen. McCain never, ever take any responsibility for anything!

@danzigsdaddy Maybe the children cant comprehend but their parents do. Anyone who cant see how our country has negatively  evolved in the last 6 years must be living in la la land. We now have an invasion going on and the Obama administration answer is to fly them deeper into the country.

@MaskedMagician1967 It would be less than $300 for a ticket from NYC to Laredo, TX by greyhound. Once there, throw their asses back over the border. I just saved tax payers $12,200, you're welcome.

@MaskedMagician1967 Well, it will cost us much more to let them stay. And yes I have a job, do you?

Those planes should have been headed to Mexico instead of to here or California or anywhere else.

No change of plans.  The Obama Administration is still working the original plan.  Just trying to say,

"It's not our fault.  They misunderstood our policy."

If Obama wasn't an abject failure  who is systematically destroying our country and very possibly leading us into WWIII, there might not be anything to bash.


After 6 years of this pathetic failure, who in their right mind would attempt to defend the idiot?  I suspect the answer is -- another idiot?

Have people here no heart?   Do we wonder what we would do living in a country as theirs?  these poor people are uneducated, have no money for Gods' sakes.   Who do they have to turn to?  Think about it.

I have two jobs Robert.

And I've heard that cities and counties are getting $$$ from the Feds for the cost of these refugees.... Not sure how much though.

@DonkeyHotay the democrat congressmen who are now setting foreign and domestic policy might not be around after the November midterm elections and without them king Obama wont be able to continue down the road he has been heading our country towards

So dip shit, your solution is that everyone in the world that is uneducated, broke and lives in a country they don't like should automatically be invited as citizens of the US?


Think about it!  You sure as hell didn't.

You mean SOS John Kerry John?

He's SOS till 2016. Then he can figure out what he wants to do when he goes home to Massachusetts, Arpaio and Babeu's home state.
