    42 senators urge Obama to do more to fix border crisis

    42 senators urge Obama to do more to fix border crisis

    BY SUSAN CRABTREE | JUNE 26, 2014 | 6:31 PM


    A temporary shelter for unaccompanied minors who have entered the country illegally is seen at...A bipartisan group of 42 senators called on President Obama to use his bully pulpit to clarify U.S. immigration and deportation policies and counter misinformation encouraging children and families in Central America to risk their lives by crossing into the country and overloading border patrol facilities.

    Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., penned the letter to Obama, and circulated it among colleagues. They said many of the children crossing the border from Central America are being lured to the United States by false advertising and human smugglers telling them they will be granted automatic “permisos” and be allowed to stay indefinitely.


    “We urge you to use the resources at your disposal to personally make clear those at your disposal to personally make clear to those seeking entry to the U.S. illicitly that they will not receive special treatment when it comes to enforcing our immigration laws,” the senators wrote.

    They also said the White House needs to do more to tell leaders in El Salvador, Guatemala andHonduras to help dispel the misinformation and take action against those spreading it.


    Feinstein said she supports Obama's 2012 executive action allowing hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children to remain in the country and to work legally and obtain driver's licenses and other legal benefits. But she stressed that it only applies to immigrants who have been in the U.S. since 2007 and were at least 16 in 2012.


    Many Republicans argue that that executive order, as well as other Obama administration immigration policies, created the current crisis at the border.

    U.S. border patrol agents have already apprehended 50,000 unattended minors trying to cross into the country and expect that figure to rise to 90,000 by the fall.


    On Wednesday the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing titled “An Administration-Made Disaster: The South Texas Border Surge of Unaccompanied Alien Minors.”


    Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., who chairs the panel, pointed to a May intelligence report from Rio Grande Valley border officials saying 95 percent of migrants interviewed said they believe a new U.S. law would give women traveling with minors and unaccompanied minors a free pass into the U.S.


    “Word has gotten out that, once encountered by Border Patrol agents and processed, thanks to this administration’s lax enforcement policies, one will likely never be removed,” Goodlatte said.


    The strange-bedfellow group of senators who signed the Feinstein-Flake letter ranged from Sens.Al Franken, D-Minn., and Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., to Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., and John McCain, R-Ariz.

    Nine Democratic senators signed it, compared to 33 Republicans.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    If at all possible this is even weaker that the Rubio/Cornyn plan. It is all political theater, a few weeks they will be out here campaigning telling us all about how they told Obama. None have suggested a band aid even, really,

    None of them offer any real relief for the U.S. They have no intention of deporting anyone, awaiting the voters to tire, look away for a second so that they can slip it under the rug until someone brings up amnesty again, in '15, '16. '21', it will get done! We must tear down and repair our Congress.

    This is just another really bad joke. These Senators think after years of our watching their two-timing acts and listening to their forked-tongue foreign-serving rhetoric that this "urge" means something to US? These butt wipes haven't met an illegal alien they didn't want to give our country to nor an American citizen they didn't want to pay for it. Come on, most of these reptiles are laughing all the way to the bank with the money they're being paid by foreign interests to sell out the American People and dissolve the United States. Otherwise, they would have put a stop to this immigration madness when Republicans controlled the US Senate, US House of Representatives and the White House. The solution today is the same as it was then: Kick every butt that is more interested in the welfare of illegal aliens of any size, race or age than they are in the well-being of the US citizens they force to pay for this treason.
