Not all of the tens of thousands of border rushers flooding the U.S. sleep with teddybears; not many of them would stand in awe at the appearance of border greeter Nancy Pelosi, and some would never be mollified by the lollipops distributed by Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee.
Here they come, America: Bloodthirsty MS-13 members and jihadists rushing the border, having posed as innocent children.
It’s the cowardly way out for authorities like Murrieta City Manager Rick Dudley to describe the queue jumpers as little children desperate to be reunited with parents and relatives in the U.S., when flooding the same unsecured channels are able-bodied members of MS-13 and jihadists, slipping through courtesy of having adopted Hispanic -sounding names.
“Border Patrol agents overwhelmed by a recent influx of immigrant children crossing the border illegally have been knowingly letting gang members enter the country. (Daily Mail, June 14, 2014)
“Art Del Cueto, president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, Arizona told the National Review that officers who recognize gang tattoos on the minors are supposed to treat them like everyone else.
“For the most part, that means letting these unaccompanied children be reunited with their parents or other relatives already living in the United States.
‘It’s upsetting that a lot of them are 16 or 17 years old and a lot of them are not going to face deportation,’ Cueto said.”
While the Obama regime will never tell you, MS-13 members have more than a nodding acquaintance with the Mexican drug cartels—who are the very ‘coyotes’ bringing illegal aliens over the border.
“Mara Salvatrucha (commonly abbreviated as MS, Mara, and MS-13) is a transnational criminal gang that originated in Los Angeles and has spread to other parts of the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America. The majority of the gang is ethnically composed of Central Americans and active in urban and suburban areas. In the U.S., the MS-13 has an especially heavy presence in Los Angeles County and the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California; the Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas of Fairfax County, Virginia, Montgomery County, Maryland, and Prince George’s County, Maryland; Long Island, New York; the Boston, Massachusetts area; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Houston, Texas. There is also a presence of MS-13 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
“Members of MS distinguish themselves by tattoos covering the body and also often the face, as well as the use of their own sign language. They are notorious for their use of violence and a subcultural moral code that predominantly consists of merciless revenge and cruel retributions. This cruelty of the distinguished members of the “Maras” or “Mareros” earned them a path to be recruited by the Sinaloa Cartel battling against Los Zetas in an ongoing drug war south of the United States border. Their wide-ranging activities have drawn the attention of the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who have initiated wide-scale raids against known and suspected gang members – netting hundreds of arrests across the country.” (Wikipedia)
“Netting hundreds off arrests across the country” should read unless they get to pour over the southern U.S. border under the guise of “children”.
Bureaucrats, like the $273,000-a-year Murrieta City Manager Dudley, who comes off like a water boy for the Obama regime, does a terrible disservice to the people he was appointed to serve in exposing them to potential danger.
Yet citizens protesting the arrival of illegal immigrants in their towns are being openly branded as “racists” by the very people elected to serve them.
“To refuse the illegal immigrants to infect Murrieta is to be non-compassionate,” Doug Gibbs writes in his Canada Free Press (CFP) column today. “To refuse them to be dumped on the streets of our city is to be racist. To refuse them to spread their diseases throughout our population is to be heartless. Or as the city manager of Murrieta even went so far as to call the protests, and the rejection of the buses and turning them around to leave Murrieta, a “black eye” for our little town.”
Perhaps the authorities in places like Murrieta has been promised immunity from gang violence.
This is the scenario expected for Murrieta today: Residents have been informed that federal agents will be in town. They have stated that they will push through the buses of illegal immigrants “no matter what”. Riot gear and shields will be used to disperse the crowd that have gathered since last week to stop those who are in the U.S. illegally. Streets will be blocked off with concrete blocks as well.” (Breitbart, July 6, 2014).
The River County Sheriff’s Department even showed up Saturday night with a huge watch tower, that shoots up into the air 35 feet, to keep protesters from defending their town.
A similar fate awaits the citizens of Dallas County, Texas, where Judge Clay Jenkins revealed three locations—two closed schools and a warehouse owned by Dallas’ Parkland Memorial Hospital—as viable sites to house Central American illegal aliens flooding the Texas border.
“I hope that people will listen to the compassion in their hearts. “These are children and they need our help. This is not going to damage your neighborhood. It’s not going to damage your property values. It’s the right thing to do,” Jenkins told News 8.
It’s Monday, July 7, following the 238th anniversary of Independence Day during which Barack Obama vowed he’d get his way with immigration—even if he had to go it alone.
God help America.
