Dem Hoyer: Children Would ‘Just Stand at the Fence’ If U.S. Builds Border Barrier

House Democratic Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) says illegal immigrant children would “just stand at the fence” if the federal government built the double-layered fence required under the 2006 Secure Fence Act.

During a press briefing Tuesday, asked Hoyer, “Should Congress revisit building a physical, double-layered fence as was included in the 2006 Secure Fence Act?”

POLL: Should birthright citizenship be denied for U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants?

“Let’s say you build a fence, just hypothetically, and you saw five hundred children standing at the fence, and you saw them standing there 24 hours, 48 hours, 72 hours, 96 hours. There’s a fence there and they can’t go anywhere and they stay there. What do you do?” Hoyer responded.

“This is a humanitarian crisis, not a…these are children who are being used, or children who are fleeing from what they perceive to be danger,” he added.

“The issue is, most of these children, as I understand, are not sneaking across the border,” Hoyer continued. “Most of these children are wanting to be taken into custody. And yes you could build a fence so they could just stand at the fence, and they’re…one was a four-year-old child.” also asked Hoyer: But would they even come if there was a fence?

“Well, and they may not,” he replied. “But clearly we have to indicate that they…we cannot give these children sanctuary except under extraordinary circumstances. Obviously we have refugee status and protective status for people. But just the wholesale coming over the border, children of either teens or less, is not sustainable in the United States.

If you take down the bird feeders they will quit defecating in your backyard.
Another case of ignorance instead of common sense.

Send them back and bill the country of origin and have the UN support it. Isn't the UN all about universal responsibility for children?

If the fence was there they would be on Mexican Soil, so they would be Mexicos problem which it should be since Mexico allowed them to travel through their whole country illegally.

So, let them stand there. If they stand there long enough, they will hopefully realize we don't want ILLEGALS in our country. Follow the legal route to gain entry and you will be welcomed.

Bring sun block. What's the matter Steny are you seeing future corrupt votes getting burnt???????

So what if they stand at the fence. Sooner or later they will get the message and not come to the fence. The absolute fact is that the Demos could care less what happens to this country as long as they win elections for ever. Every time they do one of these Obama dumps, they further destroy this country and Obama knows it and it is his mission to do just that. We are on a path to total economic destruction led by the Demos and since the population is now in the max of voting,,,how the hell will we ever stop it? Fema is buying up all the MREs it can get,,,,think about it, how many do they need when it all collapses, and who will be making them on a sustained basis when it all fails??

  Better than the dim bulb democrats plan to bring them AND LOTS of DISEASE into OUR midst, Just to ILLEGALLY TILT THE NEXT ELECTION. That IS the REAL reason they've ORCHESTRATED this "crisis." Stupid Obama plans to grant amnesty WITH VOTING RIGHTS because the democrats poll numbers are RIGHTLY in the crapper.

Yep as long as they stay on their side of the fence,I'm good-----good fences make good neighbors !!!!!

I have been following very closely all of the Obama Administration's choreographed efforts to waste hundreds of millions of dollars of Taxpayer money through Federal Contracts that pamper these illegal Aliens and provide them with better social services than Americans. They get free Medical, free Housing, free Food, free Lawyers, free Transportation, etc. Please see my numerous blogs/stories at:

Maybe we should be looking to trade a registered demonRAT foe an unregistered demonRAT.

This is why God gave parents to raise children not governments. But our government wants to raise our children with a bent mind towards communism and progressivism.

It's amazing... I wonder how these children fed themselves for hundreds of miles to the border?

Lat Them stand their they will eventually get tired and go back home where they Belong, I'm sure they would like to leave  and get out of the stinkeing fell hole that their Goverments and our created with NAFTA , and CAFTA And the NORTH AMERICAN UNION agreement that old Bush sighned on to. But if they Come Here then our Country will BE NO BETTER THAN THE HELL HOLE THAT THEY LEFT.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
