Before ‘p’resident Barack Obama took office, illegal aliens were detained, processed and then deported back to their countries. It didn’t matter what age they were. Since Obama is an illegal president, he took it upon himself to illegally change immigration laws without the consent of Congress. Instead of deporting them back to their country of origin, Obama has now started deporting them to states that have openly defied his liberal immigration policies.
With the promise of amnesty and citizenship, thousands of children are entering the US illegally without their parents. Instead of deporting them, the Obama administration is shipping them from Texas to a holding center in Arizona and letting them take care of the kids. On Friday, 432 illegal kids, 17 years of age and younger, arrived at the holding center and another 367 arrived over the weekend.
The center is an old warehouse that has not been used for detention purposes for years. Federal officials at the holding center have ordered 2,000 mattresses along with portable toilets and showers. The children are currently sleeping on plastic cots.
The Nogales holding location is supposed to be a temporary facility where the illegal kids will receive a medical checkup and all necessary vaccinations. Then the kids are supposed to be shipped to other facilities in Ventura, California, San Antonio, Texas and Fort Sill, Oklahoma where they hope to find homes for them to stay in.
The problem is that the feds were not prepared for this many kids and they are running out of supplies, including the medical supplies necessary to treat and vaccinate. So Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was asked to rush supplies to the Nogales location to compensate for the ineptness of the federal government because the conditions at the detention center were so dire.
The shipping of illegal children to Arizona goes along with the shipping of thousands of illegal adults to the state that started a month ago. The last thing Arizona needs is more illegals shipped into their state. The adult illegals are being dropped off at bus stations in Phoenix.
Brewer sent a letter to ‘p’resident Obama last Monday demanding the program be stopped immediately. She blasted Obama for not informing state authorities of the program that she described as dangerous and unconscionable.
To no surprise, she has not received a response from obama and illegals are still being transported to Phoenix bus stops and let go.
Republican leaders in Oklahoma are also outraged at Obama’s actions when they learned that around 600 illegal kids are expected to start arriving this Tuesday. The illegal kids will be housed at the Fort Sill Army Base and will cost taxpayers around $252 per child per day. That means that taxpayers will be paying $151,200 per day to house the 600 illegal kids and $1.1 million per week. How much will it cost taxpayers to house the 60,000 illegal kids expected to cross our border in just the 2014 fiscal year?
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee. According to a DHS spokeswoman, Inhofe was first notified of the intent to use Fort Sill last Wednesday. He commented, saying:
“Our nation has an immigration problem and a national security crisis, but I don’t believe the answer is for our military facilities to be transformed into a center that houses, feeds, and cares for illegal immigrants.”
“This only encourages parents to send their children unaccompanied over the border and, with the average-aged child being between 13 and 17, it exposes our military facilities to unknown security concerns.”
Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) represents the congressional district where Fort Sill is located. He also commented about the fed’s plan to use the Army base as a housing facility for illegal kids, saying:
“[I was] astonished and upset that I and others have learned about the administration’s plan from unofficial sources, rather than through a process of official notification.”
“The manner in which we have been informed of this decision allows almost no time to protest its implementation, to consider alternative solutions or to prepare for the arrival of hundreds of illegal aliens at a facility that is neither intended nor designed for their use. This is incredibly unfair to the American military.”
When America is still on the verge of a financial collapse, with millions of Americans out of work and millions more Americans uninsured now than when Obamacare took effect, the last thing we need is to spend millions of dollars we don’t have to house illegal alien kids that should be sent back to their parents. But Obama doesn’t care about America’s economy, jobs, healthcare industry or national security. All he cares about is his plan to flood America with millions of illegals who he believes will be potential Democratic voters.
Obama’s failure to secure our borders is a criminal offense worthy of impeachment and imprisonment. Then instead of spending $252 a day to take care of him in prison, like we are doing for illegal kids, house him in the Maricopa County Jail tent city where the cost of housing prisoners is less than $50 per day. Put him on one of Sheriff Arpaio’s chain gang and make him work for the first time in his life. He really doesn’t deserve anything better.
