The Brat Effect: Hillary Says "Send Them Back"

From The Daily Mail:

‘Send them back’: Hillary says wave of illegal immigrant children should be ‘reunited with their families’

Hillary Clinton stunned a CNN audience on Tuesday by saying that the US should deport thousands of unaccompanied minors who have flooded the American border

‘They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are,’ she said

‘Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay,’ she warned parents south of the border

A wave of children, mostly from Central America, has streamed across the US-Mexico border in recent months

Border patrol authorities process them and then release them to the Department of Health and Human Services

HHS says it reunites 85 per cent of them with family members in the US, but those adults’ own immigration status is a question mark

  2. Hillary has always been outwardly tough on illegal immigration. Her older, white middle and working class female supporters are most definitely not fans of millions of foreign women and their children coming in to the US to compete for benefits/handouts. Not At All.

    Women are much brighter than men in this regard.

  7. Someone showed Hillary the Steve Sailer posts about how whites are a lot more important than hispanics for winning elections. She doesn’t exactly fire up the black folk either, so she needs to not get destroyed on the white vote like Obama did.

    Off topic, but I thought of you when I read this, Steve. The German coach of the American soccer team instituted a lot of changes, but one of them was IQ tests – maybe that is why he decided to leave Landon Donovan off the team? It might also explain why the US finally beat Ghana, who eliminated the US the last two World Cups.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/usa/10901944/USA-World-Cup-2014-fever-shows-popularity-of-soccer-is-growing.html

    “Klinsmann has certainly done things differently. Claiming a higher salary and wielding more control than any previous US head coach, Klinsmann has instilled elite levels of preparation and diligence into the squad. Yoga and blood tests are mandatory. Aptitude tests determine players’ IQ and decision-making skills. A couple of years ago, he took the whole squad to a Whole Foods supermarket so they could receive a lecture on nutrition. Players have been taught to create their own video analysis on laptops.”

    Here’s another group who should be sent back:

    “China’s ‘Naked Officials’ Not so Naked Anymore”, Lu Chen, Epoch Times, June 17, 2014.

    “Over 1,000 Chinese communist officials… had a stark choice recently: be demoted, or call their families back from overseas to China. …

    “Naked officials,” as they are called, have for some years been the most potent symbols of a government so bereft of legitimacy that its own officials choose to move their families and their assets overseas. …

    … Only 200 or so elected to have their families return to China…

    Having family members overseas gives Chinese officials a convenient way to transfer money out of China, and means they can quickly escape the country if they spot any political difficulties—like an anti-corruption investigation… Once they are in the United States or Canada (two common destinations) the officials can begin procedures for investment or family immigration.

    By 2011, China had at least 4,000 corrupt officials escaping China… They took over $50 billion with them, close to $16 million each on average…”

  12. Bull. She says this for the votes and will do nothing if elected. And no one from our illustrious press asked her: “Exactly how do you propose to do it?… Will you pass any new laws? Will you keep paying for lawyers for these children? Exactly how do you propose to send them back? You will certainly NOT be able to find any parents as the adults are not volunteering and the kids will be told to say nothing. .. Do you agree to build a fence?” Nope. Not one single question.

    If it’s genuine, no one should get carried away and endorse Hillary, as she and her perjuring husband have changed their tunes more times than there are instruments in an orchestra.

    Moreover, Hillary will not deport the scores of millions of illegals already insinuated among us and she will not cut off their taxpayer-bleeding benefits & perks gravy train; she will not outlaw or penalize “sanctuary cities”; she will not shut, fortify and defend the border; she will not reestablish trade protectionism; she will not dissolve Affirmative Action or any other race-preference policy; she will not terminate the refugee resettlement racket; she will not end the H-1B visa racket; she will not repeal the 1965 Hart-Cellers Immigration Act and restore immigration restriction to its sensible 1924 standard; and she may be prone to launch further immensely, cripplingly costly foreign military interventions.

    An interesting take on “investors visas” – by giving them visas, the US and Canada are facilitating fraud in China. along with illiterate peasants who steal across our borders illegally, these are exactly the kind of future citizens we should want, aren’t they?

    Hillary’s statement is reassuring in the sense that, for the first time in a long time, a *Democrat* feels the need to fake a strong position on border security. But the fact that she inserts that second clause in there – “as soon as it can be determined who responsible adults in their families are” – is telling. It tells us that she’s full of shit.

    Non-post-American politicians would not behave this way. As soon as these children were picked up, they would be placed on planes, flown back to their home countries, and we would let the home countries sort it out.

    America no longer exists save as a farce. Dead as the Roman Empire.

  25. As others have noted, the “responsible adults” condition is a political masterstroke which must be carefully countered.

    I suggest observing that, since they came in from the Mexican border, the correct default behavior if we’re unable to determine the responsible adults is to return them to Mexico, and let them be claimed or sent further south from there; and we can cooperate with the Mexican government re: humane treatment. If this is considered unreasonable, it can then be pointed out that it was Mexico that let the kids travel through in the first place, so unwillingness to hold them to even this minimal standard is a reliable signal of bad faith.

  27. This is one of the under reported stories about Hillary as far as Dems go she is to the right on immigration. I recall during the primary in ’08, an elderly black man stood up during a debate. He was bemoaning how illegals had depressed wages in his area that his tradesman son-in-law couldn’t make a living. Obama pretty much patronized the guy, basically called him racist and said the illegals should stay. I think the debate was in Cali so this generated applause. Clinton on the other hand empathisized with the gentleman and said it was a difficult issues but laws need to be enforced while a solution is found.

    This was an eye opening exchange for me. It revealed how low Obama would stoop for any advantage while Clinton appeared to have some principals.

  31. I’m orginally from the East End of Long Island(Sag Harbor). The Native Born White American workng class out in the Hamptons has been devastated by the mass invasion of the high fertility highly racialized Democratic Party Voting Block. What was once a decently paid White American Blue Collar Hamptons Working Class population has been driven into homelessness and economic destitution.

    A few years back a documentary came out about the Homeless in the Hamptons. All of the Homeless Men in the Hamptons according to this documentary were White Males who used to work in the Construction and Trade occupations. Now many of them live in the Woods of the East End of Long Island. This Documentary never mentioned the obvious fact that these Homeless White Men were the victims of a vicious race-replcement policy labor policy of the Hampton Jet Set…Whitey out..too expensive…bring in the muy el cheapo scab labor Mexicans.

    One of the victims of this scab labor policy was a White Male who for several years used to hold a protest sign in front of the 7-11 on Montauk Highway in South Hampton protesting the use of Mexican scab labor. He recieved many death threats and physical assaults from the Mexican scab labor…he is no longer doing his Patriotic Vigil because of this. While he was doing his protests in front of 7-11…Dan Ratner owner of Dan’s Paper…caters to the Hollywood-Goldman Sachs Jet Set parasite class….wrote in his op-ed about how overpriced labor is in the Hamptons and how racist it was not to allow Mexican Wokers to come to work in the Hamptons.

    For those of you who don’t know, The Hamptons is the home of The Clintons. The Clinton’s lived in the Springs area of East Hampton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Springs is being colonized by Mexico very rapidly…and the wealthy Jews living in Springs are in a big time rage state over the Mexican Invasion. Go google American Renaissance Town of East Hampton-Springs Mexicans…take a look at my comments in the comment section on this AR news story.

    “The demographics are changing and there is NOTHING you people can do about it. Cry all you want. Your time is DONE.”

    LOL. The colorization of America may turn out to be a temporary thing. If America was once 85% white, and is now 65% white – the trend can be reversed, with a collapse in the brown/black birth rates. Which WILL occur. Once the safety net has snapped, black birth rates will plummet. The huge black population increases of the past were due to agricultural birth rates. That’s a thing of the past.

    All this cynicism towards Hillary’s words….you guys aren’t cynical enough. Take it for granted that a member of the Power Elite who mouths populist words is lying. Hillary was doing this in her campaign against Obama, remember? She was the white working class girl with Pennsylvania roots, remember? So this was predictable.

    The important thing is to change Congress, bottom up. Every last one of those bleepin’ weasels must be reminded that they have constituents – and those constituents are not Beltway lobbyists.

She kept speaking in cliches about bringing illegals out of the shadows and said little about enforcement or future levels of immigration.

She does a very poor imitations of spontaneous sincerity, invariably picking out some face in the crowd and widening her eyes and showing her teeth. Her husband she is not.

    Obama is certainly the most personally detestable President of my lifetime, and I go back to Nixon.

    On the contrary, there are plenty of things we can do. Securing the border, cutting off welfare benefits, discriminatory legislation, promoting white birthrates, forced sterilisation, mass deportations, civil war, etc..

    To use a current example, look at how easily Central American governments (with the help of Mexico and the Obama regime) have facilitated the transfer of tens of thousands of Central American settlers into America.

    On a darker note, consider how easily the Ukrainian junta (using artillery strikes) are forcing thousands of refugees to flee to Russia.

  54. This latest example of Hillary tacking with the winds reminds me of why I might vote for her. I want a president who is just competent, and isn’t necessarily a true believer in particular policies.

    When G.W. Bush and Obama were campaigning, they often reminded me of a kid I made fun of in high school who used to boast about his opinions in a way that sounded like he was talking about his achievements. It often came across like he had gained membership to a prestigious group: he boasted that he was a ‘healer’ (meaning he believed in Wicca and prayed to Wiccan gods), that he was an empath, a ‘progressive,’ and so on. One day I drew up a fake resume for him on a napkin, with the ‘qualifications’ consisting only of his fancy-sounding opinions and personality attributes. Absurdly, America accepts resumes just like this from Bush and Obama! Instead, I would love it if TV interviews went like this scene from the Simpsons, in which a board of Directors vetts Homer as a potential CEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dcu-JiAS_KE&feature=kp. The corporate takeover group wasn’t going to let Homer give his deeply-held opinions when asked, “What initiatives have you spearheaded?”

    A Google search has turned up this plausible, non-partisan enumeration of our least-qualified Presidents, listing also their most significant prior experience: http://whatwouldspideydo.wordpress.com/2012/11/01/the-least-qualified-men-to-ever-become-president/ . The stuffed shirts cluster in our very recent history. (Interestingly, some unqualified people proved to be effective executives, such as Lincoln and Clinton, but that was contrary to a discouraging pattern.)

    Shouldn’t we choose a president the way we choose people who run companies? Ideally they might agree with us on everything, but what is much more important is that they know how run a huge organization. Tim Cook has articulated an elaborate vision statement (http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples/best-examples-of-a-vision-statement.html), and Eric Schmidt says he has a set of values rather than a vision (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHbqZpJgnes). Both of these approaches are probably fine, but in the end, competent leadership, rather than vision or values, is the reason I have made money on my investments with both Apple and Google. (By the way, I would love to know the values of politicians, but the values of public figures are inevitably opaque, so this topic gets way too much attention.)

    I feel I should know by now how Steve would regard a Hillary presidency (I am a longtime iSteve reader, replacing my username about every 6 months. Ergot is my 2oth or so.). Steve, would you vote for Hillary over a Republican stuffed shirt whose qualifications consist chiefly of his deeply-held opinions?

  55. One problem in the analysis about how well Hillary will do with whites because of this is Hillary just spouted off a lot more ignorance about guns. That is exactly what her and her husband did in the 90s that turned the South GOP, majority of governors GOP, and lost the Dems the congress for the first time in decades.

    Most of the problems the Dems face today politically with how comgressional districts favor the GOP and how most state congresses and governors are GOP can all trace back to Bubba and Hillary being gun banners.

    I know lifelong Dems who switched and voted for the GOP because of that one issue alone. Hillary showed some political smarts by talking about deportation, but some amazing political stupidity by claiming gun rights people are a vocal minority holding everyone else hostage. Even openly anti gun media sources have polling that contradicts this in poll after poll from orgs like the Washington post and Gallup.

    Bubba tried to warn the Dems who were later recalled in Colorado that it doesn’t matter what polls may show – just like he learned the hard way in 94 when the polls showed support for the Brady Bill – the gun people get out and vote. He advised leaving the issue alone for state and national Dems, saying that gore lost in 2000 bc of the gun issue costing Gore his own home state, Clinton’s home state, all the southern states, and Colorado. What was unspoken is that it is whites who come out to vote, which will really hurt Hillary in the swing states that Obama won.

    I have to think her husband gave her the advice on immigration, and she came up with the nonsense about guns on her own. Even Obama was smart enough to avoid talking about guns until after he did not have to run for re election again. Rahm Emmanuel is given the credit for that one from everything I have read.

  58. “So what would your solution to these unaccompanied children be?”

    Mine is the tried and true, outstanding warrant “you have won” scam, writ large. Every so often, cops in various cities lure in dumb asses with outstanding warrants by mailing a “Congratulations! You have won a large screen TV” (or some desirable item) to their last known address, and instructing them to show up at a certain time and place to claim their prize. When enough of them have gathered, cops lower the boom, reveal themselves to be police, and make a satisfying number of arrests. No matter how many times this scam is pulled, it continues to be successful.

    If I were running things, I’d tell the border patrol and whoever else is guarding the kids in the military centers to spread the news that, if the kids contact their parents, they will be welcomed, as well. There’s a problem finding the “responsible adults?” Plant news of amnesty for the parents of kids in the facilities, but they have to come to claim their children. They’ll make their way there, lightning fast. When a substantial enough number of parents show up to identify their kids, bam! Bring out the buses and herd them unceremoniously onto planes back to their home countries. They are their parents’ responsibility and problem again, and we’ve gotten rid of thousands of them. Oh, we lied? Tough shit. This is our country. Shove off and get in the legal line with everyone else.

    Actually, Mexico is rapidly approaching first-world status. The reason is simple, their low IQ, criminal, transient “bread and circuses” underclass has been flooding the US for the last 30 years. What is left are the working poor, the working class, middle class and the wealthy. Obviously the Cartels are still around and so on, but that is besides the point. Some 30 to 60 million underclass in various stages of legal or illegal status are now virtually ensconced here. 78% of them on welfare.

    Hmm….I wonder why that is, could the border checkpoints be to keep us in, not them out?

    Wild bassed guess here, it may have to do with climate change. As in, climate changing into a very, very cold state, a Glacial, or at least a mini-glacial that would turn all of Canada and much of the Northern Tier states into an icebox.

  60. Maybe Hillary’s strategy is to trick the GOP into moving to the left of her on immigration. The GOP thinks they must do more pandering to get the Hispanic vote. I could see the GOP candidate (especially say, Jeb Bush) criticizing Hillary for being too insensitive to the plight of illegal immigrants. The GOP might pick up a few Hispanic voters, but not the majority. And the White base will stay home in droves. The result – a landslide for Hillary.

    The GOP leadership is just stupid enough to fall for it.

  61. In light of Hillary’s stance, any absence of a polling boost to the generic Republican presidential nominee should put an end to the notion that pandering on illegal immigration will net Republicans a critical mass of Hispanic voters.

    Should.

  62. Who is in favor of this?

    OK … I was listening to the SWPL NPR. I have never heard or noticed this before.

    But, Chicago city has been depopulating. The usual reasons. The rationale for immigration is to repopulate the city. Of course, they didn’t explain the black vs Hispanic competition, but they are pleased with areas that more well to do Americans wouldn’t dare live. 95% of homicides are black or hispanic — the hispanics with gang tats on their necks.

    And there has been gentrification pressure. The near West has been gentrified to the ‘Museum’ area during the housing boom with hi rise condos.

    Out in the suburbs, forget golf courses without immigrants. My former yard guy didn’t show up one year. Over 8 years they had nicer vehicles. I started seeing dump trucks and with their name painted on the side. The going price is $45 to mow an acre. They do it in a half hour with three guys. They have one large mover that is wide and is at least half as fast than the neighbors with their John Deer riding mowers. Another guy trims with regular, homeowner mower. A third guy uses a string trimmer. It’s not that the suburbans really care that much about the cost of lawn care and landscaping. It is just that our hispanics work hard and don’t cause trouble. Compared to picking crops, landscaping is fat city. I also have a feeling that most of them are not illegals, since they seem to winter in Mexico, instead of doing snow plowing in the winter.

    It isn’t business hear that really care. If they really can’t survive without low cost labor, they just outsource it to Mexico or China. One major corporation I worked for put their first line computer help desk in India. They fixed 2/3 of the problems by telling the caller to reboot their computer. Recover passwords. Plug in the computer. &c. They also digitized years worth of paper by trucking semis to Mexico. Since when do farmers in California have any real political power.

    This is just the view from far north of the border. Blacks in the US should use all their political efforts on this subject instead of Travon. The older leaders are still stuck in the 60′s. They just can’t get their head around the fact that the 64 civil rights bill is 50 years old. They also seem to live forever like Castro.

    If I lived on the Border — I’m sure I would have a radically different experience. When my daughter volunteered that the three blacks in her elementary school were cool, it turned out that two of them were children of second tier pro athletes. The high school hispanics were tracked into vocational programs that involved busing them to the local community college. Where ‘environmental sciences is largely landscaping. They also have HVAC and their programs are designed for every graduate to actually get a job or join the military. There are no hispanics in the AP track, except a handful that take AP Spanish. Their lockers are in a hallway in an area that no one uses.

    Off topic, but is really indifference and a favorable view from center city residents.
