If you have been following the news stories on the "immigration" issue, you may have noticed some stories indicating that the Administration is dumping illegal aliens in Arizona. For instance, Fox News reports:
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Friday she is “disturbed and outraged” after she was informed by federal officials that not only has the government been shipping illegal immigrants out of Texas and “dumping” them in her state, it has no plans to stop.
Federal officials told Brewer Friday that the practice will continue for the foreseeable future, and this weekend more than 1,000 illegal immigrant children will be “dumped” in Arizona. Adults and family units will also arrive, though Brewer was not told how many, her office said.
Reports first surfaced last week that scores of illegal immigrants in Texas were being flown, bused and then abandoned out of state in Arizona and elsewhere. After learning of the practice, Brewer sent a scathing letter to the president on Monday posing a string of questions about the policy. Brewer said Friday what little she has learned since then has made her even more concerned.
“This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains unsecure – now apparently intentionally - while this operation continues full-steam ahead is deplorable,” she said in a statement.
... Most of the families apprehended so far in Texas have been flown to Arizona and dropped off by the busload at stations in Phoenix and Tucson. They've also been sent to New York and Maryland.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said it does not want to lock up minors in detention centers or split up families.
Those sent to Arizona are expected to check in on their own once their deportation process nears completion in an honor system of sorts.The Arizona Republic reports:
Three hundred more unaccompanied migrant children — with more on the way — were transported Saturday from southern Texas into a makeshift way station set up in a Border Patrol detention facility in Nogales, Ariz., as government agencies took additional steps to improve the living conditions there.
By today, more than 1,000 children are expected to fill the detention center as the government continues to deal with the surge of unaccompanied minors apprehended crossing the border illegally in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.
Chacón said many children already are calling relatives to schedule times to reunite with their families. Those who don't reunite with their families will be sent to temporary shelters around the U.S., where the reunification process could take up to three weeks.
"We would have liked this process to be more organized toward the well-being of the minors," he said.
Several federal organizations — including the CBP, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Immigration and Customs Enforcement — have been working to ease the situation. According to the Associated Press, more than 48,000 immigrant children traveling on their own have been apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley, overwhelming the Border Patrol in Texas.
FEMA is using the Nogales way station to vaccinate the children and perform medical check-ups.
After a maximum of three days, children will be sent to one of three different military bases: in Fort Sill, Okla.; Ventura, Calif.; or San Antonio, Texas. Their custody situation will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, Brabble said.Yes, these illegal aliens are bringing diseases with them (warning: auto-play video at link):
Cabrera says the sickness doesn't stop at scabies.Obama is deliberately flooding Arizona with illegal aliens--an actual and literal invasion intended to force a change in Arizona policy and/or politics. If this was being done by a non-government entity, it would be considered terrorism. As it is, it constitutes an act tantamount to that of war.
“We are starting to see chicken pox, MRSA staph infections, we are starting to see different viruses,” Cabrera said.
Garcia believes the viruses are not confined to the detention center. Not long ago, a group of border-crossers came knocking on his door.
“It was a 7-month-old baby. It was shaking, it had a fever,” Garcia said.
The Department of Homeland Security called in Coast Guard medics to help treat those who are sick. But Cabrera doesn't believe the federal government is doing enough. He says other Border Patrol agents have contracted scabies and he fears it will spread quickly.
“It's contagious, we are transporting people to different parts of the state and different parts of the country,” Cabrera said.
Arizona should begin a program of dumping illegal aliens in Washington, D.C. It also should stop and turn back any further buses or aircraft bringing in illegal aliens.
