    Pelosi rejects DHS request for authority to deport migrant children to home countries

    Pelosi rejects DHS request for authority to deport migrant children to home countries

    'Democrats reject any effort to let the administration deport little children,' speaker says

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., says House Democrats will not grant the Department of Homeland Security's request to pass legislation giving the department authority to deport unaccompanied migrant children from Central America. (Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call)


    Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that House Democrats are rejecting the Department of Homeland Security’s request to pass legislation authorizing the department to send all unaccompanied children who try to cross the border back to their home countries.

    DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen sent a letter to Congress Thursday asking lawmakers to pass legislation providing additional financial resources and legal authority for the department to manage the migrant crisis at the border.


    Among the laws Nielsen wants Congress to change is one that prevents DHS from sending unaccompanied migrant children from non-contiguous countries in Central America back to their home countries. Nielsen said DHS would like authority to send those children “to their families and home countries in a safe and orderly manner if they have no legal right to stay,” as the department currently does for unaccompanied minors from Mexico.


    Pelosi said in a statement that the House would not approve such a request.


    “Democrats reject any effort to let the Administration deport little children, and we reject all anti-immigrant and anti-family attacks from this President,” the California Democrat said.


    The speaker did not say whether the House would be willing to provide additional financial resources Nielsen requested. DHS needs more money for temporary facilities to house migrants trying to cross the border at legal ports of entry while the department processes them and for shelter beds to house the increasing number of unaccompanied minor children in their custody.


    “We are grappling with a humanitarian and security catastrophe that is worsening by the day, and the department has run out of capacity, despite extraordinary intra-departmental and interagency efforts,” Nielsen said.


    Pelosi’s statement suggested that any additional funding or authority Congress were to provide DHS would be dependent on the administration’s ability to implement immigration policies in a humane way.


    “We cannot support the implementation of policies that we know will hurt traumatized children, rip apart vulnerable families, dishonor our values — and do absolutely nothing to solve the situation at the border,” she said.


    Pelosi added that the administration needs to “immediately cease sabotaging Congress’s efforts to address the root causes of the situation” by threatening to withhold humanitarian assistance to Central America.

    House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson said in a statement that Nielsen’s letter “continues to confuse and mislead on the situation at the border” and that “the administration has no credibility to demand Congress act when it has acted in bad faith on this issue since day one.”


    “I will support resources to ensure those presenting themselves at our borders are treated humanely but will oppose any effort to change policy to allow Secretary Nielsen to deport children and families without offering them due process,” the Mississippi Democrat said. “Democrats will not allow President Trump or his Administration to continue to further his anti-immigrant, xenophobic agenda.”

    Sign an Executive Order and get them OFF our soil.

    It is kidnapping to keep them!

    They are minor's, they are foreign citizens, they are their President's responsibility to care for!

    We do not want them, we do not want this liability, we do not want to pay for them!


    If our kids runaway to Canada...Canada does not keep them...they send them back!

    IT IS IMMORAL AND COMPLETELY STUPID TO KIDNAP AND KEEP THESE KIDS HERE!

    US has already agreed to do that via the Hague Convention. Dems are supposed to be big on International Law. Mexico agreed in 1994 to do that also via OAS treaty.










    The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction or Hague Abduction Convention is a multilateral treatydeveloped by the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) that provides an expeditious method to return a child internationally abducted by a parent from one member country to another.

    The Convention was concluded 25 October 1980 and entered into force between the signatories on 1 December 1983. The Convention was drafted to ensure the prompt return of children who have been abducted from their country of habitual residence or wrongfully retained in a contracting state not their country of habitual residence.[2]
    The primary intention of the Convention is to preserve whatever status quochild custody arrangement existed immediately before an alleged wrongful removal or retention thereby deterring a parent from crossing international boundaries in search of a more sympathetic court. The Convention applies only to children under the age of 16.

    Of course she did. Who didn't see that coming? For DHS to even think of asking congress for their permission on this, knowing full well they would say no, just shows me that DHS isn't serious about fighting illegal immigration.

    Add to that the fact nothing was done for the first 2 years of Trump's administration when the R's had control of the House and the Senate.

    Add also that all the R's must have developed a bad case of Laryngitis as none of them can speak out since this invasion melt down started.

    Add to that Kris Kobach (of all people) now claims.... Kris Kobach says President Trump’s delivery of wage hikes through stricter immigration enforcement in the interior of the United States has been a “massive accomplishment”

    To top it off DHS says the border shut down will be some Ports so BP can process the migrants (their term, not mine) on through, and that it wasn't meant to hurt Mexico.

    DHS has a boss, and his name is Donald J. Trump, and usually employees follow the instructions of their boss. That simple fact speaks volumes.

    “Democrats reject any effort to let the Administration deport little children, and we reject all anti-immigrant and anti-family attacks from this President,” the California Democrat said.
    Many of these unaccompanied children are 13-17 years of age and certainly aren't what I would consider "little children."
