Posted on 08/12/2013 11:13:34 AM PDT by neverdem
For a little sneak preview of where our ruling class obsession with amnesty for illegal aliens will lead us, take a look at whats happening on the border right now. An astonishing surge of asylum seekers has literally overwhelmed U.S. Immigration in San Diego, forcing them to rent out hotel rooms to accommodate the overflow, while some aliens were released to cities around the U.S., according to Fox News:
Sources say one day last week, 200 border-crossers came through the Otay Mesa Port of Entry claiming asylum while and as many as 550 overflowed inside the processing center there and in nearby San Ysidro.
People were sleeping on floors they had nowhere to put them, said one source, a long-time border agent and supervisor. This shouldnt be happening. Unless there is an immediate and well-publicized policy change, this situation will become another debacle.
At a hotel near San Diego which Fox News agreed not to identify for security reasons ICE vans arrived several times over the weekend with immigrant families. They were escorted to the second floor by two armed, uniformed agents. Two border agents secured the entrance and side door.
Documents obtained by Fox News show that recently on a single day, dozens of illegal immigrants were being transferred to an area hotel where rooms cost $99 a night. Others were released to addresses in Texas, Florida and even Brooklyn, N.Y...

Being chased by those evil M13’ers that our government supplied with a full arsenal i bet. So many illegals are being chased by gang members now. Total BS and they know it too.
them chechens were asylum folks.....beware....but keep on reading our mail and listening to our calls,,,and don’t fprget to check our bank records against our 1040s
So... every single illegal from Mexico gets automatic asylum by claiming fear of the cartels?
We’re truly screwed.
What about if you are scared of them up here or better yet scared of our government...?
Can the U.S. Gov not also say there are other parts of Mexico you can to go too live in where the drug cartels keep a low profile and it is safe to live in. Living in Houston, I have an credible fear of violence from all drug cartels here,the home invasions,murders over drugs, hitting the wrong address.. .Would team obama set me up in nice hotel room, give me a new name,find me a well paying job with healthcare.. Many of these whom claim to have a credible fear of violence of the drug cartels .We should relocate them to another country. The drug cartels know where these people are at and can come for them any time they want.
We have these refugees flooding the border to get into the US, and when they get here, they join La Raza, fly Mexican flags, and vote to make the US like Mexico. It all seems rather pointless, and not worth doing at all.
“More Cloward-Piven BS!”
First thing I thought of just reading the headline. Collapse he system, we must!
I’m very surprised Obama is not sending U-haul trucks down to the border to help the illegals relocate.Soon 99% of Latin America will be here claiming the loophole incredible fear. More catch and release.The Mexico Gov must be feeling very good right about now, incredible fear use our citizens at the border and use if often.It’s the ticket into America
ADD THIS ABUSE TO THE TAXPAYERS ..A Brazilian-born researcher who runs minority health programs at a public university in Alabama has convinced the U.S. government to give her $1.5 million to help women quit smoking in her native country.
A noble cause indeed, but likely not on the high list of the American taxpayers funding the project. Nevertheless, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the nations medical research agency, has given the Brazilian researcher, Isabel Scarinci, a five-year, $1.5 million grant to fund her international tobacco-control project.
The goal is to better understand women and their tobacco-related issues in the South American country, especially in Scarincis Brazilian hometown of Parana. In the last two years alone, the researcher has received north of $560,000 for the initiative, according to NIH records for fiscal years 2012 and 2013.
Here is what Uncle Sams generosity is getting us, according to the NIH: An understanding of women and their tobacco-related issues as well as the development of gender-relevant tobacco control efforts. Wait, theres more information from the NIH to justify the grant, though its unlikely to keep Americans up at night: A smoking epidemic is rapidly spreading to women in developing countries.
In Brazil girls are taking up smoking in particularly high numbers, Scarinci tells a university magazine piece celebrating her federal grant. Additionally, it can be hard to convince women in the South American nation of the dangers of smoking and other risky health behaviors. The researcher feels a sense of responsibility, saying I cant forget where I came from. Twenty years have gone by and their needs havent changed. For me, its personal.
At the University of Alabama Scarinci is a preventative medicine expert who specializes in reaching out to at-risk populations. As part of her duties she operates several publicly-funded initiatives to promote healthy lifestyles and disease prevention among Latino immigrants and African Americans in underserved rural communities. This likely includes illegal aliens.
The Obama administration has made minority health a huge priority and has funded projects accordingly through different federal agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as well as the NIH, which annually doles out north of $31 billion to hundreds of thousands of researchers at thousands of universities and institutions around the globe.
Earlier this year the NIH hired a Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity as part of a $500 million initiative to boost minority causes in biomedical research and the federal grant process. Under Obama the agency also created a new committee that makes diversity a core consideration of NIH governance and ensures fairness in the peer review system that erases unconscious bias related to disparities in research awards. The plan also implements implicit bias and diversity awareness training.
Obama the gift that keeps giving and giving and giving..
