I think a tent city like detention facility would be a lot cheaper and maybe after the criminals stay there for a bit they will pass the word to their countrymen that it's not worth the trip.

I agree. If you keep welcoming people in with open arms, hot meals, shelter, and transportation....why would they ever stop coming? Like it or not, if we don't start turning people around, where are we gonna migrate to when our country isn't up to our liking anymore? Who is going to give US handouts? The United States is about to get a reality check much like a college kid who got a small inheritance and blew it on parties and women. When the money is gone all your friends will go with it.

Maybe the Drug Cartels are keeping any potential terrorists in check....?


Nah they have been working with them.

They have so much in common they both like to behead people.

‘Hell to pay’ if terrorists’ link to drug cartels isn’t checked

Congressional report ties Middle East terrorists to Mexican drug cartels

What is going on at the southern border right now represents a clear, and present danger to this nation.

It should be talked about. It should be acknowledged.

But it isn't.

People would rather make emotional arguments instead.

There really will be hell to pay if nothing is done.

Exactly. But when you have that discussion you run into the "pics or it didnt happen crowd". We are supposed to believe that just because we can't PROVE its happening that it probably isnt. What military genius defends the South Korean border harder than his own border? 28,000 troops we got in south korea. They are ALL getting paid. 3.7 billion dollars for what? ALL the money we have spent building up South Korea and they can't fight their own battles yet? The fact that they are asking for more money is criminal fraud by all definitions.

eh i think the 3.7 billion is a stunt,he knows it wont pass the house but with elections coming up when it does not get passed he can yammer on and on about how those nasty racist republicans didnt pass his spending bill to help the children.its a ploy to try to swing the November elections as they know they are in for a fight

All you cite has been questioned before.

But the Administration has not attempted to do these things until this oh-so-sudden crisis.

These tactics have been exposed bigtime now.

Obama can't keep getting away with the hype and circuses.

It's too bad he is using kids as the scapegoats here.

This shows how much they are willing to sacrifice for the "Agenda".

The "Blame" he is setting up won't fly this time methinks.

Too many people on to the gag.

Upon further pondering this is the same conclusion that I came to. It only makes sense that there would be ties between the two groups for Drug money. The Cartels use it to fund their activities and the M.E. terrorists use it to fund their activities....BTW, Isn't Argentina friendly with Iran?

Read your links too. It's a little troublesome to see that Congress has known about this for years and has done nothing.

What the EFF ?

3.7 billion dollars ?

THREE BILLION DOLLARS ?

GD where the eff is my 'fair share' ?



Well we have options you know.

We can take a vacation to Mexico next week and come back over the Texas border.

They would have to let us go as long as we have family in the U.S.




What a World, what a World...

Two words - TEXAS SECEDE!

Hell a terrorist could drive nukes across it, and park them anywhere they wanted too, and Washington would be none the wiser.

Until they went off.


Who knows maybe that's the plan. One more giant false flag and the US is finished, as a free republic anyway. Considering that this administration has seemed to do everything in it's power to tear the country apart your thought doesn't seem that farfetched to me.


Well, If that happens I would look for the mushroom cloud right before the next presidential elections.

They are jumping all over "fixing" this problem somehow they seemed to know about before it happened by posting the help wanted ads for escorts for the children before they were even here.?

They have done nothing to fix this problem ever and now they want money to fix it?
I have no doubt they will get the money, they usually do but nothing will be fixed.

I know your all ignoring the obvious here because you love throwing mud at Obama for everything thats happening in history..

but you'll find the money is for:


building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance.


Your all working out the cost per head of this one instance of border crossings like you have a freaking clue what your talking about.

Its embarrassing, i really do pity you. You ignore the basic facts just to throw mud at the man, then in other threads you attack him for not doing enough to stop illegals.

frankly, your a bigger problem for the future of the USA than he is. Maybe its a lack of education or simple reading skills I do not know.

And you actually fall for that malarkey ?

Day late and a dollar short as they say.

The "secure the borders" issue has been around for a long time now.

Why *all-of-a-sudden* do they "need" more detention centers?

More illegal immigration on the way ?

Why *all-of-a-sudden* do they "need" more judges ?

Those courts have been clogged for years.

Secure the borders first, then talk.

So which position are you

a. Obama isn't doing enough to stop the flood of illegals
b. Obama is wasting tax payers money on air surveillance, border patrols, detention centers to stop illegals.

You cant be both, but most of you seem to think being hypocritical is good as long as its Obama your attacking.

Its hard to even discuss topics with Americans logically. Its painful, frankly you deserve what you get!

Bad government - selfish, obnoxious citizens, fat-guntoting-pill popping droptards.
Lax gun rights - school massacres and shopping centre shootings

Your so ignorant even when your president does something good, you still attack him.

Interesting story....

Welfare and public assistance "failures" in Central American countries ??.....



More than half of legal and illegal immigrant households from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras are on at least one form of public assistance, according to an analysis of government data by a limited immigration group.

Report: More Than Half of Central American Immigrants on Welfare



Could be a snapshot of what's in store for American public assistance ?

Confucius say....

When miscue, need to chalk cue stick



Obama has had 5 years to secure the borders.

He failed. These kids will suffer the sacrifice.

But then again, some are MS-13 members.

c. to stupid to know whats going on, but because others are throwing mud at Obama you'll join in, because its cool!


don't bother answering, its obvious. None of you actually care about the illegals coming in, or the fact Obama is asking congress for money to tackle the problem. Its Obama, that's all you need to know.

Obama needs to learn.

Confucius say....

“By three methods we may learn wisdom:

First, by reflection, which is noblest;

Second, by imitation, which is easiest;

and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”


He's got everything backwards !!!

You're on the right track, but the actual number of people is confusing.



More than 52,000 unaccompanied minors and 39,000 women with children have been apprehended on the southern border this year, far more than in past years. Most have come from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras; those countries would receive funding under Obama’s proposal to help repatriate their citizens after they are returned home.


52000 kids with no adults.

39000 women with children.

no mention of how many "accompanied" children.

Maybe the total is 150,000 ??

Maybe the big money is for corruption?

Lots of possibilities with Obama.


I was going to give a history of my involvement in trying to stem the tide (Texas, DHS company related 2007), but it would get long and probably off topic. The way I look at this however, at this point anyway is, they got into the US under probably dirty brutal circumstances. They got here probably unsupervised, nobody held their hands and they're older now than when they came into the US. Sending them back unsupervised on a plane, train or bus would seem like a first class vacation.

The US government has to stop pussy-footing around and man-up, the demowimp POTUS just ain't cuttin' it these days (any days for that matter).

Cheers - Dave

Your ability to google Confucius doesn't make your argument logical. It just means you don't really give two damns about the actual issue at hand.

like I said before

On one hand you accuse Obama of not doing enough
On the other hand you accuse Obama of wasting money trying to do something

You don't care that your being hypocritical, you just want to slam Obama. All al your little ''star buddies'' who hate Obama no matter what are all in the same boat.

personally, its an absolute waste of time reading your threads or posts about Obama, because you don't want to discuss the issues, you just want to hate on Obama.

So please, Confucius until your hearts content. I'm going to go close this browser and go back to work and earn a living.

I don't know how the air up "there" is on "Planet Clair", but here in Texas we are looking at the realities of many thousands of refugees/aliens flooding our state. Baby aliens at that.

I love kids, puppies, unicorns etc...but reality is how are we going to pay for this? Not to mention the fallout resulting from the years long humanitarian issues that will be ongoing to infinity.

We need a PRESIDENT not a Prom King to take names and kick some a##!

Man-up Mr. Obama. Please!
