7/14/14, "Congressman Asks: How Many Migrants Crossing Through Designated Environmental Areas to Avoid Border Patrol?" Breitbart, Tony Lee
"Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R) wants to know if federal
environmental protection laws are making it easier for illegal
immigrants to unlawfully enter the country.
After touring a detention center on Saturday where illegal immigrant
children are being housed in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, Rep. Bridenstine asked
the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) if Border Patrol agents
are banned from lands protected by environmental protection laws--lands
that illegal immigrants may be using to enter the United States.
In a letter to Kenneth Wolfe, the deputy director of the Office of Public Affairs at HHS, Bridenstine asked
the percentage of illegal immigrant children coming across the border
in areas where the Obama administration has denied Border Patrol agents "access due to (1) federal environmental laws and (2)
other federal laws." He requested that HHS provide him with answers by July 18.
As Breitbart News has been reporting,
at least 57,000 illegal immigrant children have crossed the border
since October of last year, and federal officials believe at least
150,000 more will do so next year.
Bridenstine also noted in a statement
that the border crisis is directly related to this administration’s
"failed policies and refusal to enforce the law" and that Obama's "$3.7
billion spending proposal will not stop the crisis."
"Solving this is a matter of national security and national
sovereignty," he said. "We must secure the border and dissuade people
from making, or sending their children on, this dangerous journey."
Bridenstine also mentioned that he was "impressed with the
professionalism and compassion of the people who work at the HHS
facility, as well as the Lawton/Ft. Sill community.""
7/14/14, "The Conservatives Who Deserve Blame for the Border Breakdown," American Thinker, John T. Bennett
conservative commentators who advocated a “path to citizenship” after
the 2012 election bear partial blame for the current wave of illegal
immigrants from Central America. Many of those who advocated for amnesty
following the 2012 election are now complaining that people indeed came
expecting that amnesty.
But there is also an unbelievably bad policy at
the root of the problem.
William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act
of 2008 is the awful piece of legislation that is allowing tens of
thousands of illegal aliens to be released and remain in America while
awaiting “deportation hearings” that we all know are a sham.
It is not ironic at all that that a law intended “to combat human trafficking”
has facilitated human smuggling. It is not ironic because this is
precisely the outcome we should expect from immigration policy designed
by multicultural elites. Our inept and corrupt political class, with their utter disregard for our sovereignty, simply does not seem to care about the consequences of the laws they pass.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sources told ABC news that, reportedly, “more than 80 percent
of these children will find permanent homes in the U.S., with either
family or foster homes and not be sent back to Central America.” In
fact, the number of Central American illegals who are deported is closer
to zero. According to one high-ranking Border Patrol official,
“Currently only three percent
of apprehensions from countries other than Mexico are being repatriated
to their countries of citizenship, which are predominantly located in
Every single Congressperson and Senator, from both parties, voted in favor of the 2008 act. The act is a Trojan horse full of the “disadvantaged,” a group overwhelmingly prone to vote Democrat. Rick Green with the Oklahoman newspaper has a detailed write-up on the 2008 act. He zeroes in on the key provisions:
2008 act mandates the current, often lengthy, procedures under which
the young people are given temporary housing and an array of services
while a parent or sponsor is sought in the United States pending
deportation hearings, which are often delayed because immigration courts
are backed up with pending cases."
a parent or sponsor is found, the illegal aliens are released."
year or two there is a deportation hearing. As Byron York writes, “Even
if, after two or three years, a hearing judge finally orders removal,
many illegal immigrants just ignore the order. No one makes them leave.”
2008 act has the effect of amnesty; it allows illegal aliens to
disappear into America and not face deportation unless they decide to
comply with a toothless legal order. Even if illegal aliens intended to
comply with our laws when they first arrived -which is unlikely because
they broke our laws to come here in the first place- they will probably
not voluntarily comply with a toothless order after they’ve assimilated into the welfare system.
The common sense alternative is expedited deportation with no release
into the United States. Congress should have made that change already.
Who is to Blame?
Republicans are blaming the president’s amnesty rhetoric for
encouraging the current wave of Central American illegal immigrants. The
fact of the matter is that the entire Congress in 2008 opened the gate,
and then both the president and pro-amnesty Republicans gave illegal aliens the green light.
2008 act tore a hole in our border for Central American minors. So why
didn’t the influx occur sooner? Customs and Border Patrol numbers show
an increase from 2009-2010, but a much larger spike occurred from

The green light was turned on beginning in 2012-2013. In 2012, Obama granted temporary amnesty
to specified categories of illegal aliens, which was certainly a green
light for further illegal entry. A leaked Border Patrol memo reveals
that the recent illegal aliens from Central America came to the U.S., in
their own words, “to take advantage of the ‘new’ U.S. law
that grants a free pass or permit.” But another segment of the American
political system also filled the news with a similar message about
crumbling borders: The bountiful post-2012 election pandering by certain
Republicans and conservatives must have also played a role in the
current wave of illegal entry."...
[Ed. note: In April 2014 "Republican" Jeb Bush told illegals it was "an act of love" for them to break our border].
(continuing): "In 2013, Republicans like Marco Rubio, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham were calling for amnesty. In 2013 McCain said Hispanics “should be ours,” arguing that amnesty would bring in Hispanic votes.
He was joined in this delusion by many commentators: Charles Krauthammer, Sean Hannity and George Will all advocated amnesty. They were eager to pander to Hispanics, despite the fact that no conceivable Hispanic voting scenario would have resulted in a Romney victory."...
[Ed. note: Millionaire Romney's campaign knew in spring and summer 2012 that Obama was running a heavy schedule of attack ads against him on Spanish radio and television. The campaign said it couldn't respond because it didn't have the "resources."]
all the post-election pandering, the message sent to the rest of the
world was that one American political party wants open borders and the
other party wants to give amnesty. Today, McCain and others act
surprised that, with a “path to citizenship” dangled in front of them,
many illegal immigrants answered the call. They should have known what
their ill-conceived rhetoric would induce foreign citizens to do.
the blame is apportioned, the latest breakdown of our border started
with the 2008 act named after William Wilberforce. With a name so full
of historical and emotional hype, perhaps it is to be expected that
politicians wouldn’t think for even a moment about the actual
legislation. The act contained a massive carve out, allowing for the
effective dismantling of our border as far as Central American minors
[Ed. note: William Wilberforce was British and campaigned against slavery in the late 1700's and early 1800's].
we cannot be the world’s police force, then surely we cannot be the
world’s orphanage and charity. Politicians from both parties would
gladly force the American taxpayer to foot the bill for their borderless
welfare state. Only public pressure and the credible threat of an
electoral revolt prevent the next reckless piece of social engineering.
The conservatives who encouraged illegal immigration with talk of
amnesty need to mend their errors by calling for expedited deportation
and a border fence."
