WH Wants $2 Billion to House Illegal Immigrant Children

As many as 80,000 minors expected to cross the border illegally in 2014

| Bradford Thomas |

Facing an estimated 60,000 to 80,000 immigrant children expected to cross into the United States illegally in 2014, the Obama administration is scrambling to handle the massive influx of minors. Having maxed out several detention centers, the administration is now asking for over $2 billion in taxpayer funds to support HHS facilities.

CNS News reports:

As tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors cross into the United States illegally from Mexico, the Obama administration admits it didn't anticipate how many would come --  and it is asking Congress "for additional (taxpayer) resources to meet this challenge."

"So there is a request to the appropriators for just over $2 billion to support HHS (Health and Human Services) facilities in particular," a senior administration official told reporters on a White House conference call Monday.

The administration also is requesting another $160 million in "additional support" for the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees the Border Patrol and immigration agencies.

The Obama administration has called the unprecedented influx of illegal minors a "humanitarian crisis," blaming violence and oppression in southern countries for the dramatic uptick.

Critics of the president, however, point to the administration's immigration policies, including the DACA’s unilateral delay of deportation for immigrants who crossed as children and reports of ICE releasing tens of thousands of “convicted criminal aliens,” as encouraging the flood of immigrants. Citing the many troubling statistics, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) recently argued that the current immigration crisis is "a direct consequence of Obama's lawlessness."

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Not a cent!
Identify which nations they came from, and send them back!

From the article:
[[ As many as 80,000 minors expected to cross the border illegally in 2014  ]]

When it can be seen that there is no penalty or even discouragement for doing this, that 80,000 could soon become 800,000.

This is insanity.
It is Jean Raspail's "The Camp Of The Saints" writ into reality.

There is effectively no "southern border" now -- nothing more than a line in the sand.

More than anything else, if unchecked, the unrestricted flow of uneducated illegals across the border dooms the nation from any chance of cultural or economic recovery.

How many people can you cram aboard a vessel before it literally sinks from the weight ???

We're going to find out the answer to this question soon enough.
