Some of the repubs blocking moves on nominations I wish they wouldn't do. It's a Presidents right to appoint who he wants and at least get an up down vote on it.

But with things like legislation they don't have an obligation to work with the other side and just rubber stamp the liberal agenda.

Americans don't want to take care of these Latinos. Close down the border and give the money he wants to spend on these freeloading border hopppers to more border patrol.

Then take off the border patrols gloves and let then do their jobs.

The reason the White House plays up the kids is to try and invoke the 2008 law that said children that are the victims of trafficking should get asylum.

So they try and make it seem like these kids are victims when its a planned migration, not at all what the law dealt with. Just another BS thing from Obummer, the king of do what he wants regardless of the law.

Here's what the Tea Party Tribune has to say about the crisis:

...deportation IS exactly the humane thing to do as these ILLEGAL now criminal children belong with their parents NOT as wards of our states paid for with our taxpayer dollars. These children were willingly sent by their parents to perpetrate a criminal act...in their name I might add...against our country for their own gain...and they need to go.
However, with a much needed reality check here, the building of a secure fence along the entire southern border has had its cost estimated at $46 billion to build, so you just know it won't get done anytime soon as that would mean Obama would have to cut his freebie and handout programs to our future Democratic voters along with cut funding to the muslim terrorist groups that he so loves...and you know he will do neither.

The issue is whether or not these kids are the victims of trafficking? They aren't it's a planned migration so the law Obama trying to use doesn't fit. It's more BS from him.

Also they fail to tell you family unit migration is going through the roof. The govt only wants you to think it's minors only. Fact is more families then unaccompinied minors.

What are the factors in their home countries that cause this migration?

They have asked why they came up to the border and had nothing to do with political unrest. They heard the rumor of allowing them in and decided to take up the "offer". It sure seems like the rumor was actually true.

Dem/Lib arguments are ridiculous. "Promise amnesty, compromise nothing, subject 100,000's to harsh journey that includes death, rape , abuse and exploitation, then blame everybody else for the problem".

You do realize blocking nominations for a vote is what Dems have done in the past and candidates that are thoroughly qualified never got the chance for a vote. Only time a candidate should not get a chance is if they are felt to not be qualified. So many of Clinton's people were far from qualified but were able to get around any nominations...like a czar in the current administration. Just look at Supreme Court nominations where Dems would base their vote on the abortion opinion yet would tell their own Dem nominees to not answer the question.

http://www.salon.com/2014/08/11/fox_...laining_to_do/




Quote:
Some facts are not in dispute. Andrew Tahmooressi served two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and was promoted to sergeant before being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps. A native of Weston, Florida, he had recently moved to the San Diego area to receive treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder at the VA hospital in La Jolla. On March 31, Tahmooressi parked his pickup truck and walked across the border at the El Chaparral crossing from San Ysidro, California, to Tijuana, Mexico. He spent the day in Tijuana and later that night returned to the American side of the border. Then he got into his truck and drove back across the border, where he was arrested at 10:30 p.m. by Mexican authorities.

Tahmooressi and his mother have both consistently claimed that he was driving south on I-5 from La Jolla, on the way to have dinner with friends in San Ysidro, when he missed the last exit before the border and accidentally crossed into Mexico. The first problem with this story is he now admits that he had parked his truck at a lot just north of the border earlier in the day and walked into Tijuana.

That means when he walked back across the border to his truck, he was already as far south as it is possible to be and still be in the U.S. The second problem is the San Ysidro crossing is the busiest land border crossing in the world. It is large, well-marked and brightly lit at night on both sides. Even had he been driving south on I-5, which we now know he wasn’t, I-5 is a multilane freeway with numerous signs and ample opportunities to exit and turn around. Even had he somehow missed all of these, there are clearly marked turnaround lines only a few yards from the border.

Quote:
In the past week new evidence has turned up, including cellphone records and a hotel receipt, that casts even more doubt on Tahmooressi’s story. Far from being unfamiliar with the San Ysidro crossing, as he originally claimed, cellphone and ATM records show that he had crossed the border five or six times in recent weeks. He has now admitted as much, saying he went to visit a Tijuana woman who works in the notorious Zona de Tolerancia, Tijuana’s red light district, with whom he was developing a relationship.

Thanks to a receipt, a copy of which was published in the Tijuana news weekly Zeta, we now know that Tahmooressi had taken a room at the Hotel Nelson, a $24 a night “hot sheet” hotel on the edge of the Zona de Tolerancia. His mother has confirmed that the receipt is authentic, but claims that Tahmooressi was afraid to spend the night there, which is why he returned to San Ysidro.

In the wake of this new evidence, Tahmooressi has secured new counsel to represent him, his third attorney in four months. Jill Tahmooressi, who had been ever present on Fox News and social media, has gone silent and returned to Florida. A press event scheduled for last week in San Diego to garner support for Tahmooressi was abruptly canceled without explanation. In the meantime, larger signs have been installed at approaches to the border warning that guns are illegal in Mexico and highlighting turnaround areas.

If Tahmooressi did not make a wrong turn and cross the border accidentally, as the preponderance of evidence suggests, why would he try to enter Mexico with a small arsenal and hundreds of rounds of ammunition?

Whatever his reasons, one thing seems sure. Barring a decision by the Mexican government to pardon him, which seems unlikely at this point, it looks like Andrew Tahmooressi could spend a long time in a Mexican prison. It also seems certain that once again the conservative media machine has backed the wrong pony and sold its consumers a story that, to put it mildly, is simply not true. Whatever his intentions were, it’s highly unlikely that this troubled young man suffering PTSD will find the help he needs in a Mexican prison.

Update: At an evidentiary hearing last week, presided over by Judge Victor Octavio Luna Escobedo, Tahmooressi’s attorney, Fernando Benitez, began to lay out his defense. In Benitez’s questioning of the border guards it became clear that he believes the best hope for acquittal is to claim that proper procedures were not followed. Mexican authorities strenuously denied this claim, testifying that standard protocol was strictly followed and that Tahmooressi’s rights under Mexican law were protected at all times.
So much for the "I got lost" defense.

We used to have a vacation house down in Rosarito Beach. I always found it hard to believe that anybody could cross that border without knowing it. It's lit up like Las Vegas with signs all over the place. Sounds like another incidence of looking for love in all the wrong places.
