New Illegal Immigrants Given "Catch and Release" Treatment

Added -5/31/14 - I should have noted that the term "Catch and Release" is a reference to returning fish to the water after catching them on a hook and line.
My internet is still giving me problems, so I still cannot cut and paste links. This article appeared on LatinoFoxNews and is dated  May 30, 2014.

While we are subjected to false admonitions of a "humanitarian crisis" that are clearly designed to allow our feelings to overrule our sense of security, national sovereignty, Rule of Law, and concerns about the transformation of our electorate, the US government is quietly adding more illegal newcomers who will be eligible for taxpayer-funded benefits and who will in time be included among those who will be granted amnesty. 

We must also keep in mind that every single "immigration reform" plan that has been hatched in the last few years is, despite the assurances that these are not cases of amnesty, nothing other than amnesty. 

It's the polar opposite of "A rose by any other name....."

"Officials Under Fire For Dumping Illegal Immigrants In U.S."
"Scores of illegal immigrants, caught by authorities in Texas trying to sneak into the country via the Rio Grande Valley, are being flown, bused and then abandoned out of state in places like Arizona, New York and Maryland.If the immigrants had been from Mexico, authorities would release them back across the border. But these would-be immigrants come from Central American countries, such as El Salvador and Guatemala, and trying to get them back to their country of origin has been a costly and largely unsuccessful endeavor.

Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, told Reuters, “essentially, they have gotten successfully into the country and it’s unlikely that they’re going to leave.”

[The reader is supposed to accept that nothing can be done and that we have no choice]

............Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley sector apprehended 154,453 immigrants last year – up from 97,762 the previous year.

More shockingly, some say, is the unprecedented surge of children making the more than 1,000-mile journey from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border to escape violence in their home countries.

Multiple media outlets have reported horrific stories from border districts on youngsters, ranging from toddlers to teens, being raped and murdered on their way to the U.S. border.

[Looks like reason enough to refrain from bringing children with you doesn't it?]

Floridalma Bineda Portillo and her two young boys were part of a group of about 400 Central Americans who were flown from Texas to Tucson last weekend. Bineda Portillo and others were then shuttled to Phoenix after the Tucson Greyhound station ran out of space.

[I always thought that committing an illegal act while having children with you is at the very least a case of child abuse if not the criminal offense of employing a minor in the commission of an illegal act]

When they arrived at the station in Phoenix, a volunteer nurse found Bineda Portillo's five-year-old son, Hugo David, wheezing and struggling to breathe. His asthma inhaler had been lost when the family was processed by immigration. The boy's three-year-old brother developed a cold after sitting on the floor for hours in the detention center, his mother said.

"We all started crying because we didn't know what was going to happen to us. It was brutal," the Guatemala native said in Spanish.

[and, when she left Guatemala, she supposedly thought that she knew what was going to happen?]

"This is a humanitarian crisis and it requires a humanitarian response," Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., told Reuters.

Most of the families apprehended so far in Texas have been flown to Arizona and dropped off by the busload at the station in Phoenix by federal immigration authorities overwhelmed by a surge of families caught crossing the Mexican border into the Rio Grande Valley...................

They are expected to return to Texas on their own once their deportation process nears completion in an honor system of sorts.

“After screening by DHS authorities, the family units will be released under supervision and required to report in to a local ICE office near their destination address within 15 days, where their cases will be managed in accordance with current ICE enforcement priorities,” according to an ICE statement........................
