Obama aides were warned of brewing border crisis
Washington Post ^ | July 19, 2014 | By David Nakamura, Jerry Markon and Manuel Roig-Franzia

Posted on 07/19/2014 8:53:51 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Nearly a year before President Obama declared a humanitarian crisis on the border, a team of experts arrived at the Fort Brown patrol station in Brownsville, Tex., and discovered a makeshift transportation depot for a deluge of foreign children.

The researchers’ observations were among the warning signs conveyed to the Obama administration over the past two years as a surge of Central American minors has crossed into south Texas illegally. More than 57,000 have entered the United States this year, swamping federal resources and catching the government unprepared.

The administration did too little to heed those warnings, according to interviews with former government officials, outside experts and immigrant advocates, leading to an inadequate response that contributed to this summer’s escalating crisis.

“the administration did too little to heed these warnings”

Inviting them up here might have been a bad idea too, as well as treating them, once they drop anchor, like the winners of a daytime game show.

More people are looking into this orchestrated invasion than most people think. When you orchestrate something of this magnitude there are always witnesses, many of which were involved who will come forward to tell the truth because they know it’s wrong. There are also those people who figure things out no matter how much you compartmentalize it for the sake of secrecy. I have already been hearing rumors about a nameless federal contractor’s employees who have been talking about being involved in transporting the illegal immigrants to the border. I don’t have the name of the company yet but some people are looking into it from what I’ve been told. There’s a lot of indications that FedGov is complicit with the invasion so far. Now to confirm.

It will be interesting, when the CA (civil affairs) branch of the US Military- finally admits to the long time recruiting of this “children.” There is a lot of story, not yet covered, by any public media.

Cecilia Muñoz, Obama’s domestic policy adviser, said the administration and key agencies had made adjustments over time to deal with the influx of children but then responded with urgency once federal officials realized in May that the numbers would far exceed internal projections of 60,000 minors crossing the border in 2014.

(snip)

“What happened this year was . . . off-the-charts different,” Muñoz said. “It was not the same pattern. We assumed a significant increase, but this was not the same kind of trend line.

“This trend was more like a hockey stick, going up and up and up,” Muñoz added. “Nobody could have predicted the scale of the increase we saw this year. The minute we saw it, we responded in an aggressive way.”

Unexpected, as usual.

It's worth noting that Muñoz here has been the one calling up Rat congress critters and threatening them if they attack the administration for the border crisis. Apparently, the buck stops with her (rather than where it belongs) in illegal alien matters for the Obama regime.

This is wash/po crap---pure agit-prop to gull the populace....... well, we aint buying it..

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

Obama's setting us up big time...he's colluding and conspiring w/ the Third World. Think extortion, kickbacks and money-laundering

AND GET THIS SCAM Honduras Juan Orlando Hernandez and Guatemala President Otto Pérez Molina and their first ladies "say" they want their children back....... and they’re "willing to cooperate" with us to send their children back as quickly as possible........ that is to say.....will cooperate "for a price".........

Honduras demands US aid, suggests 'mini-Marshall plan for Honduras'... Extortion comes to mind....and kickbacks. 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.....a scam Chicago criminals know very well.

THE PLOT THICKENS---Obama to host immigration meeting with Central American leaders
Washington Times / FR Posted by DallasBiff

President Obama will host the presidents of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador next week to discuss ways to “stem the flow” of illegal immigration, as the White House said Friday the U.S. began to return families from all three countries this week.

Mr. Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden will speak with the Central American leaders at the White House next Friday about ways “to promote safe, legal, and orderly migration between our countries in a spirit of shared responsibility, including with respect to the return of family units, which began this week for all three countries.(Excerpt) Read more at washingtontimes.com ...

“Nobody could have predicted the scale of the increase we saw this year. The minute we saw it, we responded in an aggressive way.”,

BS. HHS "saw this", and ran an ad in January for transportation services for 60K illegals. And no, an "aggressive" response would be to CLOSE the loophole in our immigration law and STOP the invasion.

That is mind blowing, and I am inclined to believe it. Now what to do about it. When will the general public finally get it.

I am reading “Faithless Execution” by Andrew McCarthy right now, and the laundry list of impeachable offenses listed there is overwhelming already, but if there were/are federal contractors bringing these people TO OUR BORDER, what is there left to say?

This WP article was actually discussed on Meet the Press today and even Andrea Mitchell seemed to be a little critical of the administration for failing to respond earlier.

I’ve suspected they’re being brought up since day one. If they travelled that far over that terrain they’d be emaciated and wearing rags. Our only hope is the military taking over.

“..Warned?! Hell, they CREATED it.....”

Yes sir! All those nice shiny new buses that are carrying the illegals all probably all bought and paid for with taxpayer dollars. This has been planned for some time. If someone can get the plate number off them and run them to find out who “owns” the buses. Nothing would surprise me who’s the owner.

a.k.a. Washington Compost Partisan Media Shills try to deflect blame from Obama’s recent deliberate manufacturing of a crisis via illegal means, onto some aides who would, at most, be reassigned to different departments after a short investigation.

Thanks Oldeconomybuyer.

When you see a crisis as an opportunity to "do things we normally wouldn't be able to do", then when you want to do something you normally wouldn't be able to do, you start looking for ways to create a crisis.

And that's exactly what they did.

“warned” my foot.

This was totally orchestrated. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have been making travel & logistic arrangements far in advance.
