The .gov knew in January they were coming.
Maybe we were running low on tuberculosis, measles, whooping cough and scabies outbreaks. :mad:

The RFP was posted on Jan 29 2014.

    Probably. You were likely glued to Glen Beck's webcast at the time.

    Sorry, never have watched Glen Beck nor Rush or Hannity.
    But thanks for your input. Bless your heart!

    Gov probably knew winter was coming as well...didn't do anything about that either.

    I take it leaving young children to fend for themselves at the border doesn't affect you.

    No, it effects them. Their parents dumped them on us.

    So what do you think could have been done by the "Gov". And do you object to a gov program to return them whence they came?

    I live in a state that shares a border with Mexico. (That's country just south of CA where these kids are passing through)
    I'm pretty sure you don't.

    Sending them back is a great idea. The food we are feeding them is making them sick.

    Actually, he implied that they are effecting him, then that they somehow are effecting themselves. Scary.

    By the way, if you are still looking for that thread, it snuck over to the Southwest forum and is making a nice patio for those guys.

    So tell me...how is this situation affect you personally? Did your state raise your taxes? Did the cost of food in your state go up dramatically? Tell us exactly how this is impacting you.

    You are right, illegal immigration has absolutley no impact on any of us. Is this even a real question? Holy crap.

    It lowers the cost of goods and services by about 10-15%.

    I will say it again, put the people that hire them in prison, no more illegals.

    You're not paying attention are you? I'm well aware this situation effects all of us. But Mr. Bakerloo seems to feel only those living on the border can really understand the impact. I'm just calling BS on that parochial whining.

    Not paying attention? Last time I checked those living on or near the border are impacted a hell of a lot more than those who aren't.
  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 26,564 Senior Member
    That assumes all illegals come from Mexico

    Fair enough point, but the ones being discussed in the original post of this thread are coming in from the southern border.

    But by far the majority come in from Mexico.

    Thank you. The OP was about the unaccompanied minors from South America who are making their way all the way through Mexico and ending up in the border states. Not many of these kids are making their way to the New England states...

    Sorry, you're right. Remember how the Hurricane Katrina evacuees impacted you just like they did for the people of Houston? When you have those Nor'easter ice storms, I freeze my **** off too.

    I finally got around to reading the link in the original post. Looks to me like they are looking for vendors to help with this issue. Apparently instead of doing something about it,or helping this humanitarian calamity or even writing your congressman to quit saying no to everything and overhaul the immigration laws, seems like whining is the route to take.

    There was a documentary on "The Beast" which is the train these kids take to get here. Sometimes we forget how blessed we are to be living in this country. When you consider that in order to make SS solvent, we need more people of working age in this county paying taxes, it seems selfish beyond reason to deny that blessing to people that are willing to risk so much to get here.

    There is no denying that we are lucky to live here. How many citizens are not currently working. Do you honestly think that a majority of these non English speaking unaccompanied minors will become tax payers? Or will they become tax burdens?

    Pocket change...

    Tens of thousands of children unaccompanied by parents or relatives are flooding across the southern U.S. border illegally, forcing the Obama administration and Congress to grapple with both a humanitarian crisis and a budget dilemma.
    An estimated 60,000 such children will pour into the United States this year, according to the administration, up from about 6,000 in 2011. Now, Washington is trying to figure out how to pay for their food, housing and transportation once they are taken into custody.
    The flow is expected to grow. The number of unaccompanied, undocumented immigrants who are under 18 will likely double in 2015 to nearly 130,000 and cost U.S. taxpayers $2 billion, up from $868 million this year, according to administration estimates

    It's so good to know that those of us up here in New England will not have to contribute in any significant way to this problem. My heart just bleeds for all the border state victims.
