A little before noon on Friday, a white Homeland Security bus stopped outside a public bus terminal in downtown McAllen, its doors opening to disgorge a group of about 20 immigrants from Central and South America.
A father carried a sleeping 9-month-old with curly black hair. A mother steered two toddlers toward the terminal.
"They just left us here," said Norma Navarro, from El Salvador, as the government bus pulled away from the terminal. "We have nothing."
But each person on the bus had at least one critical possession: a packet of U.S. government-issued documents ordering them to report to immigration officials within 15 days of landing at their new destination, and to appear in immigration court on a set date.
The paperwork confers no legal status, but many immigrants see it as a pass to a new life. Edilberto Lanza Mejia, a 26-year-old from Honduras holding his infant son, described it like this: "It is a permit to enter the United States."
The flow of Central and South Americans through South Texas has become an unmanageable torrent within the past month, overwhelming the Border Patrol, and the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is charged with placing thousands of unaccompanied minors who have been arrested.
"We are being overwhelmed," said U.S. Border Patrol Agent Christopher Cabrera, vice president of National Border Patrol Council Local 3307. "We have groups of 70, 80, 90 people just walking up and turning themselves in. They're finding the first agent and saying take me in and let me have my walking papers.
"If we don't get some help soon, it's going to be disastrous," he said.
The Cloward-Piven plan started way back with Billy clinton...and it has steadily grown since then..just like the cancer the dems want....and Piven still "teaches" at Colunbia U
The ignorant stupid Americans that still want Obama and his illegal administration in charge. They intent of this illegal worthless idiot is to destroy and take us down. We are destined to become third world country folks. We all will be like these people that feds dropped off in Texas. Are we going down without a fight? Some may but I know alot that won't.
I agree with you.Fuck Harry Reid in the Senate,I would still impeach Obama ASAP,before he does more damage to America.Obama and his Muslim brothers are sitting back and laughing at us and plotting to take over our country.I wish Congress would grow some balls and boot this non American out of the oval office.
Right on Bernard! The only way to get America back is a revolution!
Obama MUST BE STOPPED NOW AT ALL COSTS! Where the HELL
is our National Guard, our State Militias? We need help to destroy this
cancer in America called Obama! He never stops inventing ways to
destroy us! Does this SOB ever sleep! Congress is being paid off
by George Soros, I assume! Congress is happy to continue to let
America go down the drain! We need to show Obama we are not
going to put up with his S**T any longer! If he wants to destroy
something tell him to go to Kenya!
Islamic terrorists never have to worry about passports or visas or even a plane ticket...they just huddle among the other illegals, from central or south America, and get their walking papers too...then go and hook up with the nearest mosque.
I will wager that the "packet of papers" also included directions to the nearest Democrat Party voter registration office. Must pack those fraudulent voter rolls, you know!
I was traveling from California on Greyhound to visit my children in Houston last week. We had an hour layover in Tucson, Az. When I got off the bus I was surprised to see many men and women with children who had been dropped of at the station by the DHS. I asked some of them why they were coming here at this time? They all gave me the same answer. The news agencies in their countries are reporting to the public that the president announced that "if they are in US soil he will not separate their families, he will not deport them". One woman who was traveling to La Grange, Ga. said that she had come with her two children knowing that she would be allowed to stay. She had documents to appear at an Immigration hearing on July 1 in Atlanta. Another man I spoke to was traveling to New Orleans and his documents were identical, with an court date in early June in New Orleans. As we approached El Paso, Tx we were stopped at a DHS check point. An agent boarded the bus and announced in English that those who were not citizens had to show their papers. These people do not speak English so they have to be told in their language what is being said. After making a show of presence on the bus the agents got off and let everyone continue on. This president has full knowledge of what is happening and his orders are being followed.
NOW if the Militias want to do something REALLY useful:
They can take up positions on our side of the border, and as sonn as the illegals step onto our territory, SHOOT THEM! The flow of illegal immigrants into this country will STOP in under a week!
I agree shoot the bastards.If we were doing the same thing they would have tanks there waiting to kill us.Shoot the illegal pigs.Deport them.God Bless Texas and America
Well quit shipping them across the country and especially here to Arizona! We don't want them! Yes open the bus door and let them gain access to anywhere in the country. They have not been health checked, they do not speak english. You REALLY think they will mind the order to report to the nearest agency to be sent back? How ignorant are you? Think it's time for citizens to guard the border, since you are so incompetent to do so. A lot of us are so fed up with our weak border that we will do all to stop illegal entry.
WITHOUT VOTER ID. MANY ILLEGALS WILL VOTE IN THE DEM. CONTROLLED POLES. THAT'S WHY HOLDER IS SUING STATES TO STOP VOTER ID. ALSO, THE DEMS ARE TRYING TO MODIFY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE PROCESS TO CAST ALL DEM. CONTROLLED STATE'S ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTES BASED ON THE NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE, NOT THE STATE'S POPULAR VOTE. THIS WILL ALLOW CITIES TO CRANK UP THE FRAUD AND GET OUT THE DEAD AND ILLEGAL VOTERS SINCE MOST CITIES ARE DEM. THEY WILL STEAL THE 2016 ELECTION UNLESS THEY ARE STOPPED BY THE HOUSE AND SENATE GOING REPUBLICAN. HOWEVER, WITH BO THERE TO VETO ANY BILLS THAT ARE AIMED AT STOPPING THIS MESS, THAT MAY NOT EVEN WORK. THIS ADMINISTARTION IS CRIMINAL.
