    Start fining companies a $100,000 for each illegal immigrant hired and I guarantee you they will change their tune.

    Biden administration spending $60 million per week to shelter unaccompanied minors - The Washington Post

    [​IMG]

    The number of unaccompanied minors crossing into the United States began rising last fall, then skyrocketed after Biden took office and his administration announced that it would not use a Trump-era public health order to return the unaccompanied teens and children to their home countries. Last month, border authorities took 18,890 minors into custody, up from 5,858 in January.

    If biden is telling all kids they can stay more parents are going to send their kids. I am not sure how safe this is for those kids to make the journey. How is biden going to find safe families for all these kids? It seems kind of cruel to deport kids, but the government can't be responsible for all these kids. Some of them are going to end up in bad situations and the government is going to be blamed.

    "We don't have the facilities. We are not set up to do that," Reynolds said during an interview with WHO radio on Thursday, during which she announced that she recently turned down a request from the Department of Health and Human Services to house hundreds of the migrant children.

    "This is not our problem; this is the president's problem," she added defiantly. "He is the one that opened the borders. He needs to be responsible for this, and he needs to stop it."

    If you want your houses to maintain or be above their current prices, Social Security/entitlements funded, fast food/services that are valued around what it was 5 years ago, and all the other good things you take for granted with healthy pop growth, you'd probably want more immigration of the "unwashed" in the long run.

    Boomers love thinking everything's easy and things just happen to work out for them cuz "they put in their dues"...

    Texans like him enough to re-elect him or do nothing to stop him. :rolleyes:

    Seem like whatever he's doing is working.

    I doubt that traitor, seditionist, promoter of the big lie, propaganda spreader, no mask stance fool, and hypocrite will win another election. This past year showed his true colors. He's tainted in orange from head to toe.

    Well you could help the Central Americans remove their oligarchs who keep them landless and good jobless and split all the money with our oligarchs their coconspirators.

    sounds an awful lot like the federal government is looking for volunteers to do babysitting

    Young Migrants Crowd Shelters, Posing Test for Biden
    The administration is under intensifying pressure to expand its capacity to care for as many as 35,000 unaccompanied minors, part of a wave of people crossing the border.
    By Michael D. Shear, Zolan Kanno-Youngs and Eileen Sullivan

    April 10, 2021

    WASHINGTON — The desperate plea landed this week in the email inboxes of employees in government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and NASA: Will you consider taking a four-month paid leave from your job to help care for migrant children in government-run shelters packed with new arrivals at the border?

    The request to much of the federal work force came from the Department of Health and Human Services, which is at the heart of a frantic effort by the Biden administration to keep up with a surge in young people crossing the southwestern border hoping to reunite with relatives already in the United States.

    The numbers are daunting. In March, border agents encountered nearly 19,000 children at the border — the largest number recorded in a single month — most of them fleeing poverty and violence in Central America. And the flow of migrant children is expected to only increase in coming weeks.

    More than 20,000 children and teenagers are in the custody of a government system that is already at “103 percent of capacity,” including nearly 17,000 in shelters run by the health department, according to briefing materials from Operation Artemis, a response to the border crisis led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

    Government projections obtained by The New York Times show there could be more than 35,000 migrant children to be cared for by June — a prospect that one former senior health and human services official called “terrifying.”

    Hugo Chavez gave money to the poor. That didn't seem to work either.

    I met this little girl last night at midnight when she and those in her group were picked up for processing. She was terrified. The man holding her told me and my colleagues that he was her father and they had come from Honduras. Today as I toured the Donna, TX processing facility where they hold children and families, I asked officials to track down this little girl to see what else they had found out.
    Ten minutes later, Border Patrol showed me the paperwork that confirmed what we had suspected—the man pictured above was not her father—because he wasn't a relative at all. He just admitted to using her to get into the U.S. That man will be sent back but this little girl remains here, alone. This is called "recycling children" where young kids are used as pawns to shepherd adults across the border and this has become a daily occurrence here in SW Texas.
    Our border agents are begging for you to extend Title 42, reinstate MPP, and finish the wall. This is both a humanitarian and national security crisis.
    President Biden: DO YOUR JOB.

    LOL



    According to the document, “alien” will become “noncitizen or migrant,” “illegal” will be called “undocumented,” and “assimilation” will be refered to as “integration.”

    The memos also put the agencies on notice that their attitudes and those of their labor unions that endorsed former President Donald Trump must change under the Biden administration.

    OLD--->NEW
    Alien--->noncitizen or migrant
    Alienage--->Noncitizenship
    Undocumented alien--->Undocumented noncitizen/undocumented individual
    Unaccompanied alien children--->unaccompanied noncitizen children
    Illegal alien--->Undocumented noncitizen/individual
    Assimilation--->Integration, civic integration
    Immigrant assimilation--->Immigrant integration
    Refugee assimilation --->Refugee integration
