In 2018, the most important thing in history is to keep Central American families together. Yet, in 2014, the most important thing in history was to let in to the United States unaccompanied minors from Central America rather than send them back to their families.

It’s almost as if the Establishment just tries different PR ploys until one works …

Of course, who can remember back as far as 2014?

    Say, what ever happened to those unaccompanied minors? Strange that the media hasn’t done any follow up stories on where they, what happened to them, who is looking after them, are they actually better off than in their native villages rather than racist Amerika.

    ...what ever happened to those unaccompanied minors
     
    They were apparently 17 and 1/2 in age at the border, then turned 28 upon entry.

    Want to know what happened to all the unaccompanied minors that crossed the border in 2014?

    Just turn on NPR radio (National Propaganda Radio).

    According to the daily reports on NPR, they all turned out to be budding medical doctors, brilliant scientists, talented artists, astute business women, and assorted geniuses, polymaths, ballet dancers, and transgendered dog-walkers.

    They are far, far, far better people than the scummy and degenerate USA citizens that were born here. Thank God they came to our country to save us!

    ICE recently arrested over 120 MS-13 gang members on Long Island, at least 13 of whom arrived on LI as unaccompanied minors (UAMs). News12, the local news station, did an in depth story on a single "alleged" gang member who claimed he was falsely accused. All the interviews were with the "yute" and his immigration lawyer, while law enforcement refused to comment. More generally, over 3000 UAMs were dumped on LI, and both the Suffolk and Nassau county police commissioners maintain that they have become a vital recruitment pool for MS-13. In 2016 alone there were 40 homicides in Suffolk County, 25 attributed to MS-13, 15 of those dreamers.

    Didn't one of them become a bartender, recently winning a congressional primary in New York?

    I recall. this was a big change from the Clinton Administration which used federal agents to abduct Elian Gonzalez and return him to his long lost biological father (whom he had never met). And poor Elian was not even an illegal alien, since he was Cuban he was eligible for a green card.

    ***

    Elián??s parents, Juan Miguel González and Elizabet Broton Rodríguez, were both natives of Cardenas, Cuba. The couple divorced in 1991 after six years of marriage but continued their efforts to have a child until 1993, when Elián was born. The couple separated for good in 1996, but both remained close with their son, who spent up to five nights a week with his father or one of his grandmothers and the rest of the time with his mother, who had moved in with her boyfriend, Lazaro Rafael Munero. Rodríguez took Elián with her when she and Munero decided to flee the harsh economic conditions of Cuba in a boat bound for America.

    Obama’s unwillingness to interdict the flood of drugs and MS13 members pouring over the border cost over 200,000 American lives. Yet I’m sure he still thinks of himself as a “lightworker” and “the smartest guy in the room.” Unless he is an utter sociopath, I have a hard time understanding how he can live with himself. I guess self-reflection and remorse are white things. He lived like King Farouk for eight years was utterly callous to the plight or middle and working class Americans.

Veit Lindner from the German Huffpo says: The German right want’s the German Volk (=people) from the times of Hitler back. – His whole argument is based on this counterfactual presupposition and he is therefor only playing with the thought to exchange the German people.

  17. David says:

    In January 2014 the DHS issued an RFI for the transport of unaccompanied alien minors, which they projected would be 65,000 in that year, to every corner of the USA. This was well before the rush on the border that became so famous.

    I had lived in Honduras a few years before, and watched the nascent stages of parents paying for a migrant’s Coyote if he’d drag one of their kids with him to America to be deposited at the first charitable institution that would take it. The rapidly growing rate of this form of migration tipped the Obama administration off to the impending need to look after a whole lot of other people’s children that year.

    If you download the embedded file, you’ll see that the bidding organization is being called upon to provide all the services that the Dems now claim could never be provided in a humane manner, food, clothes, language services, security, shelter, etc.

  22. “Yet, in 2014, the most important thing in history was to let in to the United States unaccompanied minors from Central America rather than send them back to their families.”

    Significant correction, Steve:

    …rather than reunite them with their families [sic?] here in the United States, put them on welfare, and register their adult guardians in time for the 2018 midterms or, at the very least, the 2020 election.

    The ctrl-Left is 100% consistent: it advocates anything that hurts white men of normal sexuality, especially white Christian men of normal sexuality.

    The Democratic Party creed:
    The only good white
    Is a dead white
    Or a sodomite

    The Democratic Party motto:
    Die whitey die.
