Is Obama Deliberately Flooding Texas With Illegal Children?

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 10:47 pm

This morning I described the influx of illegal kids at the border as an “unintended consequence” of Obama’s announced refusal to enforce immigration law with respect to children.

But what if it isn’t unintended at all? What if it’s deliberate?

I wouldn’t put much past this guy, at this point.

  2. it’s never a good thing when “influx” and “kids” are used in the same sentence

  3. The suggestion is plausible knowing the Obama gang, but WND usually is not.

    I don’t like WND. But the basic idea makes sense to me regardless of who else is saying it. And the links have some further explanations and sources.

  8. I’m really thinking that we will see an Obama impeachment before January ’17. The scandals get bigger, the lies get bolder.

    longer than Drudge even

    but yeah he’s squandered a lot of goodwill, unlike Mr. Drudge

  10. I haven’t bothered to click through the links. There is no way this is not deliberate.

  11. With major media in Central America openly speculating that anyone who can get across the border now will receive amnesty, you have to wonder who is pushing this story, who has the moral authority to push the story and have it printed.
    But, most of all, who can get this wave of immigrants a free pass through Mexico.

    I never thought LaRaza had that much influence.

  12. As I’ve mentioned before, it’s Fast & Furious in reverse, and we know where that plan originated, or at least got approved.

  13. I wonder how many kids started out and how many of them are in flesh shops or dead in shallow graves.

  14. That is one of the continually unanswered questions involving mass migrations, whether in peace or war.

    That’s thought that crossed my mind, too. I wonder how many people this administration has killed on their mission to fundamentally transform America.

    And the answere is, they don’t care.

  16. However many it takes.

    I’m unsure what the House’s constitutional duty is, in such a case. When the case for impeachment is clear, but at the same time it’s equally clear that 1) there is no possibility that the senate will convict, and 2) the public at the next election will punish those who push the impeachment, do representatives have some sort of legal duty to sacrifice themselves for the principle, or should they bow to the inevitability. In our universe, FDR had a supportive House throughout; but supposing the numbers had been there in the House to impeach him, would they have had a duty to do so and pay the price?

  18. Isn’t it amaaaaaaazing how if ANY private day care facility in any part of the USA crammed so many children into sub-standard facilities, the owners would be summarily frog-marched to jail, but when the feds do it, not a word is spoken as to the unsafe and unsanitary conditions.

  19. the only thing that would surprise me about the First Traitor would be for him to be honest about something, act competently or make a decision that is actually in the best interest of the US…

    or, and this is really pushing it, he could live up to the oath of office he’s now allegedly sworn twice.

    hey, a feller can dream, can’t he? (even if he’s not an illegal alien %-)

  20. We should nickname these illegal kids – Rand and his babies, now that he wants amnesty. Grover got to him. What a disgraceful turd.

  22. The links in the WND articles are good enough for me. Even so, I’ve long thought this is another one of Obama’s schemes.

    Any time there’s talk of amnesty people start flooding across our border, but this is well beyond anything we’ve seen in the past. Over a year ago, agents in Texas were discussing a tent city to handle the onslaught. Now, groups of young children are making the trek by themselves through a country that’s notoriously dangerous for people trying to make their way to the United States.

    Among my many questions, I want to know who is facilitating safe passage through Mexico for all these children, and how many of our tax dollars are being spent to do so.

  23. When the secret plans of tyrants erupt into public view, incompetence is the mask they use to evade direct responsibility. Evil men masquerade as stupid and careless to conceal calculated and malicious betrayals of the public trust. Obama and his criminal administration are supreme examples of the malignant syndrome. How many times must a man turn his head and pretend that he just doesn’t see?

  24. Cash in and carry it out, otherwise Rand’s kids will be stealing it.

  25. The answer to that last question, ropelight, my friend, is a number that increases every day.

    Who is going to impeach him? The HoR GOP? Has any investigative hearing in the HoR resulted in anyone being held accountable? Fast & Furious? IRS? What do you base your thinking on?

  30. TI wonder how many kids started out and how many of them are in flesh shops or dead in shallow graves.

    Do you honestly think the politicians, immigration advocates, etc. actually care?

    Coming from you, happyfeet, I’m not sure how much of that is being filtered through your pro-GLBT (yet also two-faced) sympathies.

  32. I wouldn’t put much past this guy, at this point.

    Obama has now moved past the point where one can muse (and somewhat chortle) about his turning the US into the world’s biggest banana republic. IOW, even a tiny bit of glibness that might have gone with that observation (and sentiment) a few years ago now refers to an actuality, one that is becoming more and more deadly serious.

  33. Ten years ago I would have thought Alinsky and Cloward-piven were nothing more than Communist fantasies. My how quickly world events can take an unexpected direction.

    With Cecilia Munoz in the White House, who can doubt it?

  35. I think Obama is happy to overwhelm the red states with the expense of caring and providing for these illegal immigrant children, not only now but for years in the future — so this means feeding, educating, and policing them. Maybe Obama believes that if he can’t win red state votes, he can burden their economies and infrastructure until they relent.

  36. 35- If “overwhelm the red states” is the case, the only explanation for Port Hueneme is that it is one of the few counties in SoCal to vote Red.

  37. I have no doubt Obama AND Holder are employing the Cloward-Piven strategy of overwhelming the system… impeachable offenses in my book.

  38. “High Crimes” is a classification for crimes that fall outside the legal parameters of the law. It is for crimes that insult the conscience, and this administration has a rap-sheet that is a mile long.

  39. …correction….
    “…a classification for offenses that fall outside…”

  40. We have a society that wants to jail a person for leaving their child in the car, happily, for 4 minutes,
    yet wants to reward sending children off on their own on a 1,000 mile journey to become dependent on a foreign government.

    Sometimes things are so messed up it is hard to know where to begin.

    Since we know that impeaching Obama is not likely politically feasible, even if we win a 2/3 majority in the Senate, perhaps the next best thing is to do a “virtual impeachment”, where “somebody” lays out, as in a court proceeding, the evidence for why he should be impeached clearly advertised as an exercise in educating the public. Maybe by saying up front, “No, we’re not going to remove him”, we could gain some folks who are curious to listen without reacting to oppose. Who knows, maybe even a better educated 5% of the population could make a difference.

  41. Virtual Impeachment?

  42. Please see Michelle Malkin’s article in National Review dated 6/11:
    http://www.nationalreview.com/article/380076/new-dumping-grounds-michelle-malkin

    A sample from the article: ” … Question: How many other military bases are stealthily being used to redistribute, house, process, and release illegal border crossers?

    What we do know for sure is that the Obama administration already has converted several other military bases across the country into outposts for tens of thousands of illegal aliens from Central and South America. … ”
