A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede.
Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.
This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the heat.
(Note: according to this report, Gilberto Ramos did not drown while crossing the Rio Grande. however, apparently several other juveniles did. Whether death by drowning or dehydration, the consequences --- and the blame --- are the same.)
Let's face it: we have an Open Border to our south.
Our president, for reasons known only to himself, has refused to enforce current Immigration Laws.
Especially, he has made statements which might be interpreted to mean that he will not stop "children" from illegally crossing the border from Mexico and Central/South American countries.
He may consider this a "humanitarian effort", but from this report it is anything but humanitarian.
Children are literally dying because of the failures of the Obama policy.
Even if we are not concerned about who besides "migrant workers" (and their families ... those who are still living) may be encouraged to enter America illegally: perhaps it's time to be aware of, and consider, the fact that these family members will never be seen by their fathers and their mothers again.
If Obama was a home-owner in Chicago, who had a swimming pool in his back yard; and if neighborhood children climbed his chain-link fence to swim in his pool ... and if those children drowned in his swimming pool, what would happen?
He would be charged as having "maintained an Attractive Nuisance", and prosecuted for any consequences.
In this real-life case, the issue is not that there are no fences around the "swimming pool" that is America, but that the "
Washington Examiner (7/13/14): "Obama Pays Price for Inaction on Immigration Law":
In the short run Barack Obama paid no political price for the Democrats' decision to sidestep immigration. The only time he got pressed on the issue was a grilling by Univision’s Jorge Ramos in September 2012. Obama carried 71 percent of Hispanic votes in November.
The second thing that led to the flood of underage illegals was Obama’s declaration in June 2012, five months before the election, that he would not enforce immigration laws against so-called “dreamers,” young adults brought over the border illegally as children who also met certain conditions.
Sometimes, "Hope and Change" can kill you; and the man responsible for the deaths of these children is he who so cunningly held out the hope of the "undreamable dream" for people who would probably not have sent their children to confront the
President Obama is responsible for the deaths of these children.
