My response from Mayor Parker of Houston
rfreedom4u

Posted on 07/18/2014 4:47:29 AM PDT by rfreedom4u

Dear Mr. (my name): There is a crisis brewing that disproportionately impacts border cities, putting a strain on their physical infrastructure. Sharing the physical burden of housing so many people relieves the immediate pressure on a handful of cities. We have a professional responsibility to assist other municipalities, just as we would in the aftermath of a natural disaster. There is a growing humanitarian need. We have a personal responsibility to assist human beings in distress. These are not undocumented workers flooding here to take low paying jobs. These are children, some as young as 2 or 3 years of age. We cannot simply put them on a bus or plane back to their home countries and hope someone picks them up at the depot. The undocumented children are all in federal custody. Any costs for housing these incarcerated children would be reimbursed by the federal government. Sincerely, Annise D. Parker Mayor


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: houston; illegals; immigration; texas
I would like for the City to send notice to the Federal government that we will not house illegal immigrants in Houston. Many of these illegals pose a health risk to the community with diseases they are bringing with them. Citizens of Houston do not need to have their children or others exposed to this danger.

These people are here ILLEGALLY. They are not "undocumented" they are illegal. I hope the City does not cave in and accept these people with an offer of "Federal assistance" which is simply taxpayer money in the first place.

Houston mayor sounds quite Amnesty Liberal

Guess she gives little care for Houston’s resident children

So this mayor wants to facilitate human trafficking and kidnapping.

From (sorry about the following) Politico (again, sorry about the source):

Kay Granger: Countries want kids back

Granger, who is chair the House group working to address the immigration crisis, met with President of Honduras Juan Orlando Hernandez and President of Guatemala Otto Pérez Molina.

“We found out that the president and the first ladies of Guatemala and Honduras want their children back and they’re willing to cooperate with us to send their children back as quickly as possible,” Granger said.

What does the lesbian mayor of Houston know about caring for children?

I sure hope that you weren’t surprised by this response.

It seems that the only thing that Houston can be proud of is having the first openly Lesbian Mayor. The fact that she was re-elected speaks volumes about the mindset of the Houston voter.

“These are not undocumented workers flooding here to take low paying jobs. These are children, some as young as 2 or 3 years of age.”

They must be in damn good physical condition to have made that 1,500 mile trip on their own at that age.

My guess is they have been roofing homes and seal-coating driveways for months to get in that shape.

Mayor Parker of Houston: "We have a personal responsibility to assist human beings in distress. These are not undocumented workers flooding here to take low paying jobs."

But they are "purposefully undocumented"...... teens and adults turning themselves in to Border agents for the express puropse of gaining permanent residency.

Mayor Parker has an even greater responsibility to inform residents which companies plan to employ the illegal teens and adults riding the freight train---swarming at the Texas border.

Observing the mobs riding atop speeding freight trains for 1700 miles---one can only conjecture on their hygiene.....nauseating to think of how they might have handled body wastes.

No running water or flush toilets atop that train.

==============================================

The e-coli threat is a given. Mayor Parker says Texas companies will employ the invaders......possibly in retail stores, in restaurants, in supermakets handling our food and merchandise.

The deadly E-coli is passed through unclean hands from improper bathroom habits. E- coli has been found on the handles of supermarket carts.

And more----there's e-coli contamination on school buses, school facilities, school supplies, books......and public buses that transported them....and so on.

============================================

Mexican restaurants, fast food hamburger joints, supermarkets, retail stores, landscaping.....the contamination in Texas could get fierce.

How did she come by this information? Nobody else seems to be able to get any information about them.

I wouldn’t say it’s something to be proud of. She’s too worried about the whole “freaks can use any bathroom they like” than anything else. I’d be happy if they fixed the streets. Unless you are on the highway you may as well get a 4WD vehicle.

Evidently she did not get the memo from Obama. According to him a 26 year old is a “child”.

Houston is on it’s way to becoming another LA. Glad that I got out of there a long time ago.

I think she did get the memo from Obama. The one that says "lie your ass off".

“Houston is on it’s way to becoming another LA. Glad that I got out of there a long time ago.”

A heavily armed L.A. Everyone I know is packing major heat.
They know major civil unrest is right around the corner. All
media in this town including Fox 26 and the Barnacle are
state controlled. If you want to know whats going on around
here you have to go somewhere else. There is great commerce
here and it’s a good place to make a living but the tard,
freak perverts that are running this town are no different
than the Obama regime. This freak Anus Parker is a complete
embarrassment. The deal is the same people that keep
Sheila Jackass Lee in office are the same people that keep
this perverted freak in.

Of course you know all of this and I intend on joining you
in getting out of here too. Going to move to Rockdale.

She has her head buried so far up her wife's (you know what) to care about American values. But I am sure when she gets done with her carpet munching feast, she will get around to destroying Houston lickety-split!

“...These are children, some as young as 2 or 3 years of age...”

Is this woman seriously trying to say that 2-3 year old children traveled the north/south length of Mexico alone and unattended????????????

If they WERE attended, then give them back to the attendees and send them back to where they came from....

Um, yes, we can do exactly that.

Honduras Juan Orlando Hernandez and Guatemala President Otto Pérez Molina and their first ladies want their children back....... and they’re "willing to cooperate" with us to send their children back as quickly as possible........

Better add.....will cooperate "for a price".

Honduras demands US aid, suggests 'mini-Marshall plan for Honduras'...

Extortion comes to mind. They emptied out their villages with greedy visions of billions in remittances expected.

Now they want to cooperate? Call this a Third World scam by opportunists who smell money. ===========================================

REFERENCE US taxpayers handout billions in foreign aid to these do-nothing Third World hellholes--specifically earmarked to subsidize their poverty-stricken populations.

Time to cut off US aid to these corrupt, do-nothing governments. US aid should be suspended until the countries tell us where the aid money is going......and demand they put out appropriate messaging to counter the ads said to be fueling the horrendous surge at the border from Central America.

NOTE WELL: US Aid figures do not include military aid and aid from other US agencies: El Salvador: $280.4M Honduras: $680M Dominican Republic: $223.7M Mexico: $958.2M Guatemala: $391.8M

SOURCE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_foreign_aid_received

=============================================

This report shows US aid $’s for the past few years (see page 9 (US Assistance) and pages 25-30 show various other agencies providing aid (DOD, etc.) (needs more research)

LINK http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/row/R42582.pdf

=====================================================

THE FOREIGN AID MODUS OPERANDI---Former Guatemala Prez used US banks to launder millions (swindler was elected to "redistribute" the nation's wealth) An ex-president of Guatemala faced charges in NY that he used US banks to launder millions looted from his impoverished nation. Alfonso Portillo took office in 2000 pledging to redistribute Guatemala’s wealth.

Portillo, 61, allegedly ran scams to drain the impoverished country's coffers. The feds say Portillo embezzled about $2.5M provided by the Taiwanese embassy....$1.5 million was earmarked for “Libraries for Peace”....books for school kids.

Portillo personally endorsed three, $500,000 checks issued against an account at the Intl Bank of China in Manhattan, then deposited the cash in the Miami bank account of a Guatemalan bank controlled by “a close associate and political supporter” .....the money was funneled to bank accounts in Paris in the names of Portillo’s ex-wife and daughter.

Portillo swindled nearly $4M defense funds ...and plundered the national bank run by his alleged co-conspirator through overdrafts financed by public reserves -- stolen money paid for expensive watches and cars, for himself and his associates, according to the indictment. (Source: NY POST news report 5/28/13.)

Why not? Their mothers did.
