Gotta stop them children from reaching their parents that are currently working for us at all cost.
Floods of unaccompanied children are being sent here by their parents who are still in Mexico. your statement that the parents are all already here is wrong .... and even if they were then we should send the children AND the parents back. They are illegal and we can't afford them. Period.
To give the Senate an idea of what has happened and the timeline here, as recently as 2011 there were 6,560 unaccompanied minors detained at the border between the United States and Mexico. Then in 2012 the President announced he was taking administrative action to defer deportation of a certain class of minors, most of whom had come here as young children but had since grown up, sometimes called the Dreamers. But this action in 2012 sent a message, apparently, to other people who were anxious to come to the United States. So you see in 2013, there were 24,000 unaccompanied minors. It is projected, although the number is not known, that it will rise to 60,000, or the Senator from Arizona has said he has heard as high as 90,000 potentially of these unaccompanied minors.
Mr. CORNYN. I would say to the Senator from Arizona, he knows a lot about this topic, living in Arizona. But I think it is a combination of factors. It is, 1, the message that was sent by the unilateral deferred action the President ordered in 2012 saying that even children who come here meeting certain criteria would be low priorities for deportation. So the message was: If you can come to America, and you get here, then you are basically not going to be sent back home.
160 Cong. Rec. S3521 - IMMIGRATION POLICIES
Mr. CORNYN. I agree with the Senator from Arizona. I think this is not a coincidence. There is, in my view, very much of a cause-and-effect relationship between this poorly thought out unilateral action by the President, without much knowledge of or thought given to the consequences.
As the Senator from Arizona knows, because he has certainly fought the fight to fix our broken immigration laws, and I have been involved in many of those myself, this is a direct result of the President basically trying to go it alone and basically trying to send a message, a political message, but one that gives very little thought to the very real-world human consequences of his political actions.

If they send the Texas Rangers, I do hope they send all of them.
I believe this is one riot which one ranger just wouldn't quite be enough for. Even those guys.
The Nogales center is just the beginning, though. The children will be vaccinated there before being sent on to centers in California, Texas and Oklahoma, AP reported.
The immigrants are mainly coming from Central America, which makes it more difficult to deport them than just sending them back to Mexico.
According to the Arizona Star, one reason behind the sudden surge is a coffee fungus that has destroyed coffee crops and wiped out plantation jobs in Central America.
However, Wilder said the true depth of the crisis is a creation of the Obama administration.
“They keep coming. This will not stop. The call has gone out to Central American countries, countries abroad, that if you get here the doors are open,” Wilder said.
KRGV Channel 5, in the border town of McAllen, Texas, reported that migrants from Central American countries like Guatemala are hearing news reports at home that mothers with children are being welcomed in the U.S. with plane and bus tickets to the interior.
And where are the news outlets in Central America getting the idea that the U.S. is open to all comers?
From the White House, says Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
“It is a direct consequence of the presidents illegal actions,” he said, according to Breitbart. “The parents think, ‘If I send my child [to the U.S.], my child will have amnesty.’ That’s what the president of the U.S. has said. It is the exact opposite of a humane approach to immigration or to securing our borders.”
Obama's two-year 'amnesty' for illegal immigrant minors sparks TWELVE-FOLD spike in numbers pouring across border
A San Antonio Air Force base, a California Navy base, and a makeshift detention center in Nogales, Arizona have become temporary shelters for children and youths caught crossing the border without their parents. Republicans blame the Obama administration for the problem, citing a 2012 policy that relaxed deportations
-It's 'an administration-made disaster,' says the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee
-President Obama now concedes that it's an 'urgent humanitarian situation' and is setting aside $2 million to pay lawyers for the children
The US government expects as many as 80,000 child immigrants to illegally enter the US this year, a twelve-fold jump in just three years
More than 33,000 have been picked up in Texas since October; the Arizona facility has ordered 2,000 mattresses to handle its overload
'Instead of having an application of the immigration law, we are taking mothers and children and dumping them,' another claimed
-A federal judge castigated the Obama administration in December, saying it was 'completing the criminal mission' of human traffickers
Illegal immigrants from Central America are surging across the U.S.-Mexico border because they believe they can take advantage of American immigration policy and gain at least a tentative foothold in the country, according to an internal Border Patrol intelligence memo.
The immigrants come seeking “permisos,” which apparently are the “notices to appear,” the legal documents given to non-Mexicans caught at the border, according to the memo, which was viewed by The Washington Times and raised several times Wednesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
If they have no relatives or someone to stay with in the states what are they going to do to survive. Live on the streets, resort to a life of crime for a loaf of bread or a stack of tortillas;

Can anyone come up with a plausible reason why the Atlanta, Georgia mayor was at the bilderberg group conference in europe?
What does that have to do with the topic of this thread.
