Photos of Kids in Cages at US border in June 2014 taken by Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar on his camera phone. The shocking defeat of Banana Republican “Leader” Eric Cantor on 6/10/2014 put a halt to then VP Biden’s calls for “a constant, unrelenting stream” of new immigrants

“‘This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,’ said the statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers.”

June 12, 2014, Caged, diseased and desperate: Shocking pictures of the child illegal immigrants flooding over the border – as Joe Biden calls for an ‘unrelenting stream’ of migrants, Daily Mail, Ryan Parry, Nogales, Arizona

Congressman Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, took the photos on his camera phone to highlight the terrible conditions children are being kept in.”…

Caged: Congressman Henry Cuellar took these shocking images to highlight how overwhelmed the US authorities are with the recent tide of illegal immigrants

“Democrat congressman took the images at a holding center in south Texas to highlight the terrible conditions

400 children a day are pouring over the border and Republicans [pretend to] blame an Obama ‘amnesty’ for unaccompanied minors. [GOP wants open borders even more than democrats.]

It came as it emerged [then VP] Joe Biden told an audience this week that the US needs an ‘unrelenting stream’ in ‘significant flows’ of new immigrants to bolster the economy.

Border patrol officers tell MailOnline that they are so overwhelmed they are ‘quarantining’ the sick kids with police evidence tape.“…

Young faces: The pictures, taken recently, show just how many of the illegal immigrants are children - many of whom have no supervising adult. Up to 400 a day are pouring over the border

Young faces: The pictures, taken recently, show just how many of the illegal immigrants are children – many of whom have no supervising adult. Up to 400 a day are pouring over the border.

In one snap, taken during a tour of the Customs and Border Protection facility in South Texas, a large group of immigrants are locked in a wire mesh cage. In another, tiny children run around a packed room and foil sheets – the only blankets they have – cover the concrete floors.

Up to 40 people a time – most appearing dirty and dejected – can be seen in filling rooms only large enough for ten.

This comes as the MailOnline learns that overworked border patrol officers struggling to cope with the huge influx are separating diseased child immigrants with make-shift quarantine methods – yellow evidence tape.

Don Ray, the Executive Director of the Texas Border Sheriffs Coalition, said border guards were simply running a strip of tape down the center of the detention facility to separate the children.

‘The diseased kids sit on one side and the healthy children on the other,’ he said. ‘Hardly the best way to go about things’….

Cheek-by-jowl: The immigrants are crammed in tiny rooms and forced to sleep on the floor with aluminium blankets as their only comfort

More than 400 children a day are flooding illegally in to the U.S. and the tide of border crossings by unaccompanied children mostly from Central America is not expected to end anytime soon.

Today it emerged that despite the influx Vice President Joe Biden believes more, not fewer, immigrants should come to America.

Speaking to a National Association of Manufacturers’ crowd [on June 10, 2014] this week he called for a ‘constant, unrelenting stream’ of new immigrants — ‘not dribbling (but) significant flows,‘ to bolster the national economy, The Hill reported.

‘We need it badly from a purely — purely economic point of view,’ Mr Biden said, The Hill reported.

Later, on Twitter, he wrote: ‘The final thing we need to do together is pass immigration reform … We need it badly.VP at manufacturing summit.’

[Note: Thanks to a majority of the 65,008 voters in Virginia’s District 7 Republican primary on June 10, 2014, you wouldn’t get it, at least not then. Biden and the world would learn the shocking news late that night that illegal border “kids” advocate, Republican House Majority “Leader” Eric Cantor, lost his Republican primary: 6/14/2014, Why Eric Cantor’s shocking loss likely kills immigration reform this year, Miami Herald6/10/2014, Immigration Reform Died With Eric Cantor’s Shocking Loss to a Tea Party Challenger, New Republic. [Dave Brat wasn’t a “Tea Party Challenger,” his victory was strictly due to years of volunteer work by residents of Cantor’s Virginia 7 district]. Cantor, who cared nothing about millions of American kids living in poverty much less problems of kids in his Virginia district 7, wasn’t even now thinking of Americans and on their behalf demanding the US enforce its border, or even calling for repeal of Bush’s Dec. 2008 law which guaranteed the border would be permanently flooded with young Central Americans. Instead, Cantor used his global podium to urge Americans to help the government planned flooding of the border to meet his Wall St pals’ demands for endless cheap labor by supporting what Cantor called his “Kid’s Act:”

June 9, 2014, Eric Cantor has pushed his “Kid’s Act” billed as a lifeline for the poor children of illegal immigrants who have come here through no fault of their own. Let’s make them all citizens. They are the “victims” here.…As a result of Cantor’s Kid’s Act, parents are pushing their children and young adults across the US Border by the thousands....And it won’t stop with the children. It never does. And the borders will not be secured. Eric Cantor doesn’t want that.”…

June 7, 2014, Cantor: “I have told the President [Obama] there are some things that we can work on together,” Cantor said. “We can work on the border security bill together. We can work on things like the Kids.” Cantor was referring to what has commonly been referred to as his “Kids Act,” which, as Breitbart News reported, would grant amnesty to illegal immigrants who were brought to America through “no fault of their own”–like many of the illegal immigrant children who have been pouring into the country in recent weeks.”

48 million Americans live in poverty in 2014, CNN image. It doesn’t matter. Wall St. requires lots of kids in cages for cheap labor.

“Cantor spent over $1 million dollars in the last month of the election, compared to Brat, who barely raised $100,000 during the entire primary campaign, according to FEC filings. In May 2014, Cantor was booed at the 7th District’s Republican convention, a sign that his constituents were unhappy with his performance in the House….Increased voter turnout in the Republican primary may have resulted in Cantor’s defeat. In 2012, 47,037 votes were cast compared to 65,008 votes in the June 10, 2014, primary, an increase of 38.2 percent.“…the US political class considers their constituents to be everyone outside US borders. PS. Virginia District 7 was redrawn to the disadvantage of Dave Brat after his 2014 victory.

(continuing): “His [Biden’s] comments come as border patrol agents are appealing to the federal government to help with the thousands of illegal children pouring across the border.

Conditions: The images were taken at a holding center in Texas which can no longer accommodate large numbers of children and mothers traveling alone with their kids, forcing the federal government to open more facilities

Yesterday the MailOnline saw lines of children being corralled by staff at a makeshift border patrol warehouse in Nogales, Arizona being used as a central hub to process the flood of immigrants.

There were serious concerns for the health of the 1,100 children being held at the Nogales facility after MailOnline learned paramedics were called out three times in a day. We witnessed a teenage girl being wheeled out of the make-shift detention warehouse on a stretcher and loaded in to a Nogales Fire Department ambulance.

A spokesperson for the Nogales FD said: ‘We were dispatched to a 911 call at the Border Patrol station to attend to a female minor who was feeling sick.

‘Depending on the evaluation of the paramedic we will make a decision as to whether the patient will require a higher level of medical care. If so we will transport the patient to a local medical hospital.’ The spokesperson confirmed that the call out was their third of the day to the Border Patrol facility and the eighth since June 1….

Staff set up tents and giant fans in the 100 degree heat and large green screens were used to keep the children hidden. A border patrol officer manning the main gate at the U.S Border Patrol location told MailOnline that 200 extra officers had been drafted in to help.

Local hotels were also packed out with the influx of government officials here to tackle the problem. The much needed response came after pictures of unaccompanied children lying on the floor of the large barren facility raised concerns of a humanitarian crisis….

As many as 1,100 children are currently at the holding center in Nogales [Arizona]. The children are sleeping in plastic cots but about 2,000 mattresses have reportedly been ordered, and medical supplies and other basics are being shipped.

Conditions are slowly improving, with shower facilities being added and donations of clothing being collected for the children. Vendors are being contracted to provide the children with nutritional meals, while the Federal Emergency Management Agency will provide counseling and recreational activities….

There are makeshift cafes and medical centers and that telephone banks and computers have been set up to process people and contact relatives.

Unaccompanied children and partial families from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala make up the majority of those crossing the border.

Of the 1,200 or so crossing the Rio Grande in eastern Texas every day, up to 400 are unaccompanied children, said Rep. Henry Cuellar, who represents the district where most of the crossings occur. ‘This is a humanitarian crisis,’ he said.

It’s believed many of the immigrants use rafts to cross the Rio Grande, equipped with instructions to follow the river until reaching the Border Patrol site to surrender [and be given residency]. The illegal immigrants include a group of Honduran girls, some as young as 14, according to CNN….

According to the Houston Chronicle, several advocacy organizations have lodged complaints with Department of Homeland Security officials on behalf of more than 100 unaccompanied youths alleging mistreatment by Customs and Border Patrol agents within the past year.

Conspiracy: An association of former border guards has accused the government of deliberately \'orchestrating\' the flood of minors for \'political reasons\'

An association of former border guards has accused the government of deliberately ‘orchestrating’ the flood of minors for ‘political reasons.’

The Obama administration is attributing the huge influx to violence in poverty stricken nations such as Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador….

After the children at Nogales have been processed, they will be transferred to Department of Health and Human Services run facilities at Lackland Air Base in Texas or Ventura County Naval Base in California.

The administration announced that a third facility in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, which will house up to 1,200 minors. U.S. law prohibits the Department of Homeland Security from immediately deporting the children if they are not from Canada or Mexico.”…

[Note: The “US law” referenced ensuring floods of so-called unaccompanied minors from Central America was the William Wilberforce Reauthorization Act “enacted quietly by lame duck George Bush on Dec. 23, 2008....7/7/2014, “Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking,” NY Times, Carl Hulse

“The bill gave substantial new protections to children entering the country alone who were not from Mexico or Canada by prohibiting them from being quickly sent back to their country of origin.”…“Many of the new students were years behind in their education. Some had never gone to school and couldn’t read or write in any language.Obviously, the “law” shouted to the world that the entire population of Central America is welcome to come to the US for a free life paid for by global slaves, ie, US taxpayers including the 48 million who live in poverty who are obviously despised by the US political class].

(continuing): “Children are turned over to Department Health and Human Services supervision ‘within 72 hours of DHS taking them into custody,’ an official said.

Relatives living in the U.S. are searched for and contacted and the immigrant is given a court date. But very few actually show up and the children often become one of the millions of undocumented immigrants.

Last night [June 2014] an organization of former Border Patrol agents charged that the federal government, under the administration of President Obama, is deliberately arranging for a flood of immigrant children to arrive in America for political purposes.

[Note: “Border Kids” were trafficked after admission to US: 1/28/2016, U.S. Placed Immigrant Children With Traffickers, Report Says,“ NY Times, The report also said that it was unclear how many of the approximately 90,000 children the agency had placed in the past two years fell prey to traffickers, including sex traffickers, because it does not keep track of such cases.” And, 1/28/2016, “Obama administration placed children with human traffickers, report says,” Washington Post, Abbie Van Sickle...“The Obama administration failed to protect thousands of Central American children who have flooded across the U.S. border since 2011, leaving them vulnerable to traffickers and to abuses at the hands of government-approved caretakers.”]

(continuing): “‘This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,’ said the statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers.”
