Want to get hung up on about illegal immigration, call Grand Prairie, TX.
7/7/14

Posted on 07/07/2014 3:51:55 PM PDT by DallasBiff

Called Grand Prairie, TX, local govt. about their decision to house 2000 illegal immigrants, and I talked to the secretary Lydia and she said that the Fed govt. ordered that Grand Prairie ISD take them in, and then I asked her why doesn't Grand Prairie invoke the 10th amendment and she hung up on me.

I called many more times and got the runaround and finally talked to Grand Prairie city Manager Tom Hart, and asked him him his political affiliation and then he hung up on me.

The City of Grand Prairie has about 100,000 residents, how could they possibly afford to take in 2,000? And this is probably only just getting started too

Yesterday there was a thread that the Grand Prairie officials were upset that Dallas was getting some 2000 illegals and GP had not even been contacted by the FEDs.

Screw them. They can sow their own destruction if they want. If they want to take these people in then fine... but don’t ask anyone from OUTSIDE of Grand Prairie to pay for this. The real problem is that they will be pegged as a PERMANENT DUMPING GROUND from now on.

If they don’t care about their own sovereignty then maybe they shouldn’t have any.

And where is governor Perry on this issue?

Almost powerless, where the Texas Constitution put him.

I don't have much use for Gov. Goodhair, but he did, along with Dewhurst and Strauss, authorize $1.3M/wk to deal with the influx.

This has me boiling mad. Remember, quartering of British soldiers (foreign agents) was one of the driving forces of the Revolution. Is this so different?

Allegedly not, but State law and Federal law requires that state and local law enforcement turn the invaders over to the feds.

It's sub-optimal, to say the least, but he is increasing the police/military presence along the border area.

And as hard as I am on liberal A-holes, it's important for me to give credit where it's due.

If he is just aiding and abetting the feds, I don’t think “credit” is what I’d give him.

I don't see added police/military presence as aiding and abetting. It's not like I'm going to vote for him for anything.

It's not setting up claymores along the border, but my suggestions go unheeded.

I'd settle for a contract for a bunch of trebouchets.

Clay Jenkins now says immigration protesters will not be tolerated.

These facilities for housing the invaders are for a term of at least ONE YEAR. The fedgov has no intention of sending them home.

Message from the Grand Prairie City website from Mayor Ron Jensen:

Message from Mayor Ron Jensen Posted Date: 7/7/2014

"As you may know by now, Dallas County and the Grand Prairie Independent School District have offered the old Lamar Alternative Center for consideration as a temporary shelter for some of the unaccompanied children that have crossed the border into Texas. As mayor, I did not volunteer our city as a shelter location, but the city of Grand Prairie will handle it in a professional and caring manner.

If the school is used, it will be a temporary situation. The contract to use Lamar would be for 120 days with the possibility of two 120-day extensions. The children would only be there a short time as they are processed in and out.

The city’s role is to make sure Grand Prairie citizens are safe and that this humanitarian effort is not a cost to our city. The federal government will absorb all costs and handle all operational issues such as food, security and medical. The security will ensure that the children stay onsite at all times.

The city of Grand Prairie is not taking a position on federal immigration. This is a federal issue that needs to be taken care of in Washington.

As always, Grand Prairie citizens will remain a priority when it comes to city services. The federal government has produced a Frequently Asked Questions page with further information.

If they are there for one year the community will have to educate them.

Nice,huh?

I heard that Clay Jenkins was going to replace his South Dallas voters with the new invaders.

I have no idea whether that's true or not, but that information should be spread to any contacts you might have in South Dallas.

I know I have.

If you have contacts in South Dallas, let them know that Clay wants to replace them with the invaders.

The problem is that you called the wrong place.

You called the city, which was neither involved nor consulted about housing the kids in an abandoned school. If you were rude, no wonder they hung up on you. You called the wrong office and talked to the wrong people.

See Post #28.

Call Grand Prairie ISD or the Dallas County Judge’s office if you want to complain to the people responsible.

What part of the saying, "I don't serve the government, the government serves me", don't you understand.

I guess you like government tyranny.

What a nonsensical reply. The city government had nothing to do with the problem and no authority. You were given facts to work with but chose to ignore them.

You can’t be effective if you ignore the facts...and simply rant.

Sir, you don’t call the plumber when your electricity goes out.

Or maybe you do, judging by your seeming inability to understand this issue.

The city government was out of the loop in this matter and your calls were totally misdirected.

Your name would suggest that you are a Texan. Surely you know that school administration, county government, and city government are totally separate entities. Ideally, they work together. Sometimes, and this is one of them, they don’t.

$1.3M a week?!? Good grief! That’s not just for a couple weeks but for the rest of their lives and their anchor babies and their soon to arrive parents and cousins and neighbors and dog groomers and mailmen and... Why should our tax dollars have to be wasted on these people? Dump them at their embassy and wash our hands of them. Use that $1.3M on SECURING THE BLEEPING BORDER.
