In another case where the Obama Administration claims to have been caught off guard, the onslaught of illegal immigrant children coming across our southern border appears to have been expected as early as the beginning of this year. An advertisement posted on the site Federal Business Opportunities back on January 29, 2014 by the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement requested bids from contractors to provide Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC). The request cited an anticipated 65,000 children ranging in age from infants to seventeen years old who will require assistance in being transferred from:
“DHS to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) care via ground or air methods of transportation (charter or commercial carrier), property inventory, providing juveniles with meals, drafting reports, generating transport documents, maintaining/stocking daily supplies, providing and issuing clothing as needed, coordinating with DHS and HHS staff, travel coordination, limited stationary guard services to accommodate for trip disruptions due to inclement weather, faulty equipment, or other exigent circumstances. In emergency situations, the Contractor shall be called on to provide temporary shelter locations (such as trailers) with shower facilities for juveniles who are pending placement with HHS when bed space is unavailable nationwide for extended periods of time. The Contractor shall provide temporary guard services and other support as necessary during these emergencies.”
The Obama administration is taking action to deal with this “surprising” influx of minor alien children, the majority coming from the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. House Speaker John Boehner called for the deployment of the National Guard to protect our borders but the administration has denied his request. What the Administration has committed to do is provide the Central American countries with $9.6 million dollars to help them with their citizens who are sent back to their home countries. In addition, according to a report from CBS News, the State Department, through USAID, has committed to a five-year $40 million dollar program for Guatemala, a five-year, $25 million crime and violence prevention program in El Salvador, and in Honduras the U.S. will provide $18.5 million to support law enforcement in that country. Our current and future tax dollars have been promised to these countries in exchange for us taking in their abandoned, sick, and often times abused children.
Unaccompanied alien children are crossing our borders by the thousands every day. An article on Breitbart reports 300 children are being flown from Texas to San Diego, California. Protests from citizens in Lawrenceville, Virginia against housing 500 of these children on the campus of St Paul’s College, a college that closed last year, has forced the Administration to shelve their plans according to a report on Fox News. It appears the plans are to ship these children by the hundreds to cities all across the country. Already badly in need of revenue for vital services due to the continuing stagnant economy, this influx could collapse the already stretched schools, medical facilities, state, city and county public services, and law enforcement personnel.
Those of us who have researched President Obama’s background are aware of his intentions to create chaos in our country. An article by James Simpson in American Thinker titled Cloward-Piven Government from November of 2009 describes President Obama’s intent to use this strategy to destroy our economy and fundamentally transform America. Simpson quotes David Horowitz, who described this method as:
The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Former Obama Administration Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel was quoted as saying “never let a crisis go to waste.” It appears President Obama and his willing cohorts have upped the game now to actually creating crises.
They are forcing Americans, and Congress, to plead for comprehensive immigration reform. They will say this is a humanitarian crisis and we have to do this for the children. These children are being sent by parents or grandparents to America, not because of the promise of freedom which brought immigrants here in the past, but because they are escaping the hell hole of a country they live in where Marxism and socialist policies have failed miserably and the people are suffering from unrelenting poverty, escalating crime, and no hope for their future.
The video below is from the Fox News Kelly File, where Megyn Kelly speaks with film maker Dennis Michael Lynch, who filmed the activity on the border between the United States and Mexico. Lynch believes the tens of thousands of children coming across our border are a diversion for what is really happening. The drug cartel scouts are over on the Mexican side and are getting criminals and drugs into this country with relative ease. Criminals are hooking up with pregnant women pretending to be family just to get into the United States. When they do get turned back by Border Patrol they come back hours later. Lynch believes “our country and the future of our children have officially fallen off the cliff” based on what he has seen.
We must not allow our representatives to cave to the pressure of those pleading to help the children when we are struggling to help ourselves. We cannot even provide health care to our wounded veterans who earned it through their sacrifice in service to this country. We cannot save the children of the world, no matter how much we might want to.
We do need to deal with immigration in America. Our elected officials must insist our borders are secured and all of these children returned to their homelands. In the long run it will cost far less to return them than to provide the housing, food, education, and health care to support them until they reach the age of majority. But more importantly, we need to prevent the drug cartels from sending criminals and illegal drugs into our country, and assure that no terrorists can cross our borders to commit violent acts and bring terror to our cities and citizens.
President Obama’s policies have made him the #King Coyote; “coyote” being the name used for those who sneak illegal immigrants into our country for personal gain. President Obama is doing this for an ideological gain. He sees America and the world as a Marxist utopia where there are no borders or countries, only people coexisting with one another in perfect harmony. This is a very dangerous, bone chilling policy, which threatens our very existence as a sovereign nation.
