Unaccompanied young people have been flooding across the border and crowding temporary shelters in the U.S. Is the reason this has been happening due to lax border security combined with an expectation the U.S. government might soon grant blanket amnesty to people in the country illegally?

According to Josh Earnest, who is replacing Jay Carney as White House press secretary, the blame is elsewhere:

A “misinformation campaign” by “syndicates”? Oh, ok Josh.

“Devoid of self-awareness,” and then some:

This administration isn’t even trying to make sense anymore:

Meanwhile, it would appear that the Obama administration plans to pay Central American countries to reintegrate those same young people who came to the U.S. illegally:

Unbelievable.

  • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

    Obama’s to blame for all of the illegals flooding our country. All of the promises of amnesty and their refusal to deport is why it’s happening. Impeach Obama, close the borders, deport all of the illegals, and give a massive fine to every Democrat and Republican who has promoted amnesty. And they should also send a bill to the Mexican government and demand they repay all of the taxpayer dollars Americans have had to see spent on helping illegals.

    I have a serious solution: collect all identification on children unaccompanied to US. Send the list to each country of Origen. Give them 60 days to respond. After 60 days all unclaimed kids are declared orphans and put up for adoption in the US by US citizen parents. Re patriot the others and charge the home countries for expenses. That would put a stop to all this.

    • NavyGal

      I came up with something a little different; we identify the children’s home countries and immediately stop all financial aid to those countries, including and especially Mexico. Use some of the money to send the kids home and don’t reinstate the financial aid for 10 years (or 20 or more, even).

    ‘Stunning: DHS solicited bids for vendor to handle 65,000 unaccompanied minors — IN JANUARY!’

    The Obama administration’s claim to have been surprised by the wave of children flooding over out borders may turn out to be another political lie of the year. Sundance of Conservative Treehouse noticed a very peculiar advertisement:

    On January 29th of this year, the federal government posted an advertisement seeking bids for a vendor contract to handle “Unaccompanied Alien Children“.

    Not just any contract mind you, but a very specific contract – for a very specific number of unaccompanied minors: 65,000.

    • Why would DHS and ICE be claiming “surprise” by the current influx of unaccompanied minors on the border in June, when they were taking bids for an exact contract to handle the exact situation in January?

    • Secondly, how could they possibly anticipate 65,000 unaccompanied minors would be showing up at the border, when the most ever encountered in a previous year was 5,000 total ?

    The bid specifics are even more suspicious:

    […] The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.

    […] In addition, the Contractor shall have personnel who are able to communicate with juveniles in their own designated language(s).

    Link to the ad here.

    This stinks to high heaven. It is time to subpoena the people who placed the ad to give testimony in Congress. We may have a Cloward-Piven strategy on illegal immigration underway.

    Excuse me but it very likely IS a “criminal syndicate”. Everyone knows that the Chicago Machine is run by a criminal syndicate and is the most corrupt urban political machine in the nation. In 2009 the DNC fired their entire Washington headquarters, moved the party to Chicago and staffed it with members of that machine. It is also common knowledge that the same criminal syndicate “runs” the city of Las Vegas and Harry Reid has long been suspected of being in their pocket. So yeah, it’s a criminal syndicate. And the political arm of that syndicate is the Democratic Party.
