"I was about to post that shemphoward was even dumber than cherokee," says Cowplant, who moved from the Liberal Valhalla of California to the Red*eck Conservative State of West by God Virginia, alleged voluntarily.

I think there are few warrants out for Cowplant in Cali, like DWS (Driving while Stupid) and TFS (Tweeting while Full of **&%) !!!

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

The chaos in Texas shows they won’t.

One governor, of a bordering state, tried (the right way), to untangle the border mess and that governor and state were met with lawsuits and oppression from the Obama Administration.

Fresh water will never ever come from a bitter cistern. This administration is both bitter & rotten.

Consider Rickshaw's stereotyping comment to Cherokee Proud. Rickshaw is a liberal Democrat. So is Natalie Tennant.

Rickshaw - offer YOUR house for asylum, for a few teenage gang members who are seeking "asylum from violence." If your bedrooms are full, find them some room in your shed. And get to Kroger, they need breakfast, lunch, dinner, toothpaste, toilet paper, and WVU T-shirts to celebrate their new home state. Then, join conservative groups in making donations to organizations who are caring for these human beings as they come across our border.

Bringing their diseases with them and spreading them all over the country

Despite all the LIES and propaganda, the immigration system is NOT "broken"!!!

It was designed so that NOBODY was allowed across the border until they were checked for diseases and they are not allowed to become a citizen until and unless the learn ENGLISH, and wait in line until they have PROVEN they are not a subversive, criminal, or a burden to society

Make no mistake this is an INVASION!

If AMERICANS were pouring across the border into MEXICO, they would be cut in half by gun fire or locked up in a Mexican prison for the rest of their lives!

This may indeed be the spark needed to begin the next American Revolutionary war

In the words of Patrick Henry

LET IT COME!!!!

(U//FOUO) EPIC assesses that UAC flow to the border will remain elevated until migrants’ misperceptions about US immigration benefits are changed. We further judge that this process could take the remainder of 2014 given the time needed for bi-lateral coordination efforts—such as information and enforcement campaigns in Mexico and Central America—to take hold. Nonetheless, traditional underlying immigration factors, such as family reunification and poor socioeconomic conditions, will continue to drive alien flow—including minors—from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

(U//LES) U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) also notes that a large number of migrants interviewed claimed family members in the United States encouraged their travel because the U.S. government would cease issuing permisos after June 2014. (U//LES) U.S. Border Patrol officials report that the majority of migrants interviewed in late May indicated that they made arrangements with smugglers in their respective countries through the assistance of family members and friends in the United States.

(U) Although EPIC lacks reliable reporting of Central American newspapers broadcasting the perceived benefits of U.S. immigration policies, several U.S. media outlets since June 2014 have identified Central American newspapers that have enticed minors to travel to the United States. For example, Honduran and El Salvadoran press have reportedly advertised the DACA policy, accommodations for detained UAC, and the promise of reunification with family members in the United States.

(U//LES) EPIC assesses homicide trends and migrant interviews suggest violence is likely not the principal factor driving the increase in UAC migration. While CBP data from early fiscal year 2011 indicates a steady increase in OTM and UAC migration, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) statistics— within this same timeframe— show a decline in per capita homicide rates in these three countries; El Salvador saw the sharpest decline, followed by Honduras and Guatemala, respectively.

(U//LES) A majority of migrants interviewed also noted that they had encountered family units, consisting of a mother and child under the age of 18 during their journey to the United States and that the families had indicated they planned to surrender to U.S. authorities because they were informed that they would likely be released.

The EPIC report discusses the lack of correlation between violence rates in Central America and the current border crisis:

(U//LES) In late May, the U.S. Border Patrol interviewed unaccompanied children (UAC) and migrant families apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley. Of the 230 total migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC and adult female OTMs traveling with minors. Migrants indicated that knowledge of permisos was widespread across Central America due to word of mouth, local, and international media messaging—prompting many to depart for the United States within 30 days of becoming aware of these perceived benefits, according to the same reporting.

Defund DHS..not another penny. Begin impeachment hearings ASAP and close the border. the violence is here and now and we must not believe the lie about unaccompanied children..they are accompanied right to the border.this is not about politics but about national security. The children need to be accompanied right back to their Homeland with great care and concern.The incredible idea that we can help them by giving them a toy is nonsense. Many are using this crisis for their own purposes.Contact your representatives and do not remain silent.

contact your representatives and do not remain silent
