Rep. Gohmert: Obama Wants $67,912 for Every Illegal Alien Minor
cnsnews.com ^ | July 10, 2014 | Craig Bannister

Posted on 07/11/2014 6:53:37 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Pres. Obama is asking Congress for $3.7 billion - $67,912.28 per child - to deal with 57,000 minors illegally entering the U.S., Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) tweeted today.

But, the problem is more than money, Rep. Gohmert tells MRCTV, since Obama's threats and imperial actions are sending "the message that America has become lawless":

"His lawlessly announcing his one-man legislation allowing people to come illegally and stay illegally sent the message that America had become lawless and would not be enforcing our own border or laws. Now, demanding money or else he'll allow even more devastation to our health, education and housing systems should not be condoned nor encouraged."

"The United States has been invaded by about twice as many people as invaded France on D-Day," Rep. Gohmert tells MRCTV.

The congressman also blasted Pres. Obama for engaging in recreational indulgences like cards, golf, and billiards at times when the U.S. was in crisis:

"Since we have heard reports that President Obama went and played cards while our SEAL team was going after Bin Laden, and disappeared when our Consulate was under attack in Benghazi until he showed up at a fundraiser in Las Vegas, his decision to take a break from golf and play games of pool while America is being invaded is not surprising.

"Not only has he refused to take action at securing the border, he has been and continues to prevent his massive cadre of federal bureaucrats from enforcing the law and protecting us from invasion."

Move the border patrol to the border instead of 50 miles inland and it will cost nothing —

As I keep posting on these,
Give them the $$$ but attach provisions banning Obama’s defered amnesty program and allowing states like AZ to enforce immigration law.

Am going to make the math simple:
For 3.7 billion dollars, find an airline that will charge $1,000 / head to fly these people back home. At $1,000 / a head can send 3.7 million people back to where they came from. Then past the bill for sending these people back to their countries of origination and mexico.

She got $14 million form the publisher. Divide that into 161,000 that she sold in three weeks, 1/3 of which were read, and so sales are not expected to climb. That’s equal to $86,9656.52 per item paid for, in this case, book.

I know it sounds low, but rest assured that the Dems will be back later to ask us to pay for their housing, food, schooling, healthcare, Obamaphones, Obamamobiles, college, abortions, clothes, medical marijuana, and eventually their retirement.

Round 'em up and march their asses to the border crossings, Trail of Tears style. Feed them beans and rice and water them... They will be gone in a month at littlecost to the taxpayer... AND THEY WILL NOT WANT TO EVER COME BACK.

Perhaps they will tell their friends not to bother.

Not one more damned nickel to Obama to settle criminaliens!
Bus them all to the border immediately, refuse entry to those that continue to arrive every day, at bayonet point if necessary, and invade Mexico for the purpose of destroying all north-south railroad track.
A complete moratorium on all new immigration applications and begin deportation of those rats who have been “hiding in the shadows,” while coming out frequently to demand benefits, amnesty and citizenship.
That’s a good start to fix our broken immigration system and it lets everyone know exactly where we stand. Oh yeah, and—
Impeach Obama!

Or 10 bucks from every man, woman, and child in the US. I told my kids I wanted 10 bucks from each of them so we can pay the illegals to come here and take their jobs when they grow up.

RE:”Impeach Obama!”

AHHH yes,
and if you flap your arms while jumping off the roof you will fly too, just like a bird.

Wishing makes it so.

Obama is on the fundraising trail publicly ridiculing such ideas(impeachment) , he seems giddy about it.

And his lib audiences laughs in response like its the funniest thing they ever heard.

Its pretty obvious its not a front.

American jails cost way more than that per jailee.

Why not use NAFTA and send all convicted violent criminals to Mexico prisons? Mexican prisons cost less than a dime for every dollar for American prisons and the criminals will think twice about going back to prisons.

If the house were serious about this, Boehner would have been out there when this whole thing started saying Obama can't be trusted on immigration therefore there will be NO immigration reform (Amnesty) bill during Obama's remaining 2 1/2 years as president.

BUT of course he didn't do that did he?

Men and women of wars past fought and died, so that we may have the right to vote, among other freedoms. Do not waste your vote by not voting. Develop a strategy..think about the best way to use your vote, and for whom. The election’s in 2016...let’s see how this shakes out, and who’s in the running.

Giving Obama $3.8 billion to “fix” the border problem would be analogous to giving Hitler the same to fix his concentration camp problem.

American elections no longer determine who will represent us in a law making capacity.

Obama has established executive branch precedents that no election can reverse.

He has assumed so many illegal powers, I cannot imagine the rat/government/media machine will allow these powers to fall into the hands of others.

The office of the American president has become despotic.

Elections alone cannot lead to restoration of our freedoms.

I think you would divide the number sold into the advance to equal what they are out so far. I will never buy it, if I want to hear lies I will call my ex wife it is cheaper. Hill’s book will soon be found at Dollar General for 3.95.

Border Patrol checkpoints are inland, 40 miles or whatever, still, I think the Border Patrol actually does patrol parts of the Border, Rio Grande. Customs is at the actual border crossings.

Border Patrol Vehicles.

I’m not vouching for this source but seems there was the incident where a boy was shot right on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande and Border Patrol was accused of it. So that shows they are right on the Border. I know what Governor Perry said, that sounds like he is talking about the Checkpoints near the Border.

http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/6023810-mexico-authorities-allege-us-border-patrol-agent-shot-killed-a-14yearold-boy

“Mexican authorities announced that last night a U.S. Border Patrol agent shot and apparently killed a 14-year-old boy who died on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande River. The incident reportedly occurred during a confrontation in downtown El Paso near the Paso del Norte international bridge.”

Rock throwing incident.

There was a news story several months ago announcing that Obama was repositioning the border patrol inland and the border patrol put up a stink about it. This is not debatable and not news.

Supposedly there are 1000/day coming across that sector in South Texas. They know the train that they arrive on from Guatamala and the paths they take from the train to the border.

And they claim they can’t stop them at the border???

Who are they kidding???
