Is the Border Crisis Coming to Your Community?

In early June – soon after the crisis at the border started making headlines – FAIR started the Border Crisis map to track the locations of where the federal government was detaining and sending illegal aliens. The goal is to provide an easy-to-understand visual of all the locations used by the federal government as well as proposed locations.

Each marker on the map links back to media articles in order to ensure accuracy. Additionally, a number of helpful resources are listed at the bottom of the web page to help explain how the UAC program works under HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement.

While the surge of illegal aliens into the U.S. Is happening primarily in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, the ramifications that Obama’s policies have created are causing a ripple effect that is only starting to be felt by communities throughout the country.

Since the Department of Homeland Security estimates that more than 90,000 unaccompanied minors will illegally enter the U.S. in 2014 and possibly as many as 142,000 will enter in 2015, this is not an issue that will be going away any time soon.

While President Obama’s request for $3.7 billion in emergency funding will provide a temporary fix, until the policies that created this program – such as DACA – are stopped by Congress and the processes are simplified by amending the 2008 this crisis won’t end.

    TELL THE HOMELAND SECURITY TO TRANSPORT ALL ILLEGALS TO WASHINGTON DC
    DROP THEM OFF AT THE WHITE HOUSE, HOMELAND SECURITY HEADQUARTERS,ERICK HOLDERS OFFICE!
    SEND ALL ILLEGALS BACK PERIOD,AFRICAN AMERICANS WANTS ALL ILLEGALS IN THEIR DEMOCRATIC CITIES TO GO TO JAIL ! WHEN BLACK MEN DO ANYTHING AGAINST THE LAW WE GO TO JAIL PERIOD! WE ARE AMERICANS,WE ARE LEGAL AND HAVE JOBS , FAMILIES ,AND MORALS,BUT IF WE DO ANYTHING AGAINST THE LAW AND INTENTIONALLY BREAK THE LAW,WE GO TO JAIL,NO QUESTION ASK,AND WE SHOULD! THERE ARE NO LATINOS ORGANIZATIONS OR POLITICAL APPOINTEES STOPPING US FROM GOING TO JAIL SO WHY SHOULD WE SUPPORT THEM! THE REV,GAY,FAG AL SHARPTON AND THE JACKASS TURNCOATS N.A.A.C.P TURN THEIR BACKS ON BLACK CITIZENS,AND THEY WILL BE INVESTIGATED AND BROUGHT TO JUSTICE BY BLACK MEN THAT ARE GOING TO BRING ASSIST IN BRINGING FEDERAL INDICTMENTS AGAINST THE CORRUPT NON PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS !

    Here’s an idea I haven’t seen expressed:
    Why not contract with a Mexican organization to warehouse these illegal aliens in Mexico while their cases are being sorted out? If the aliens need to attend a court hearing, they can do so via CCTV.
    If they lose in court, they will already be out of the USA, though we should probably buy them a bus ticket back to their home country just to be nice. If they win, we can let them back in.
    Some upsides to this are that no special effort would be required to find caretakers who speak Spanish, no special effort would be required to find them native foods, and we will save a boatload of money!
    What’s not to love?

      If they got that far, they can buy their own bus ticket back to where they came from and their own attorney. I like your idea of not having them physically here on our soil for their hearing though.

    If we can spare the money to bus them to Massachusetts and other northern states, we can just as easily turn the bus in the opposite direction and ship them right back from whence they came.

    Obamanites want to ship them around so they can later say (as they do of previous illegals) ‘we can’t possibly afford the cost and develop the logistics to round them up and send them back home, so we’ll just give them amnesty.”

    This whole thing was orchestrated. The government even put out, a few years ago, an RFI, pre bid, for housing, transporting, processing etc the influx of expected child illegal immigrants.

    I was watching the senate hearing yesterday on illegal minors entering the US and I had to laugh. The HHS Secretary was asked if it would be ok for members of congress to visit these detention facilities holding the 60,000+ ‘children’ (who are mainly teenagers and older). Her response was steeped in irony: She said that this would be fine but stressed the importance of making advance reservations or notifications before their visits.

    So… 50,000, or 500,000 (or a million?) minors we know nothing at all about enter the country illegally (whenever and wherever) – that’s fine with her. But if a few members of congress, arguably our most important individuals and representatives, request to merely visit and inspect taxpayer-funded detention centers for these illegals… no, they need a reservation. Amazing.

    I saw Hannity on FOX last night and Hannity was on the border w/Gov. Perry…Gov Perry is doing the job that our “president” should do, the “president” is doing nothing except requesting almost $4 Billion and that is not to send them back nor enforce the border. I read that they can all be flown back for $8 Billion, so what does our emperor plan to do w/that money except be unaccountable for its use. Gov. Perry said that 62,000 crimes against Texans have been commited by illegals in the last 6 years, that’s under the emperors administration! If you are still watching ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and the rest you should watch and support FOX news to get the REAL news. ALL illegals, and I do mean ALL should be deported and those gang members that are being let into our country, well I think we all have our own ideas as to how they should be treated! I hope not one more is allowed to have a baby here and automatically given citizenship…This could be a bad turning point if they keep all of these illegals in this country…

      Automatic American citizenship to anchor babies is a travesty. It should not be. How can an illegal make a legal? Birthright citizenship is for babies of already American citizens. If I robbed a bank….would I not only get to keep that money but get to keep any interest from that money? I think not.

    We have legal citizens in our country that need jobs and other help. Send the illegals back where they came from Obama. No border patrol, bring in the military to protect our borders. Stop sending our troops to other countries bring them back to secure our country and keep legal citizens safe that is what you were elected for, to represent our country and legal citizens. Do the job now. Send all illegals out of our country. What part of illegal does this so called president and this administration do not understand. Obama has broken many Constitutional laws and that is illegal also, but he is not held accountable and charged WHY?????????????????? Follow the laws as legal citizens have to do. Our laws apply to everyone elected as it does citizens. If Americans are physically and mentally able to do the jobs illegals do and refuse, no welfare. I have had jobs I didn’t like but had to take them to take care of my family.

    It’s my understanding that the 2008 Fienstein admendment states that they must present themselves at legal boarder crossing to be considered for asylem. The majority of these cases did not present themselves at a boarder crossing, and should not get consideration for entry into our country!

    When it comes down to it the cost figures that are going to be added to our taxes are not good. Typically, $16000/year for education, but also to feed, house, health, etc are going to be added. 50% of these are going to be welfare cases. In the last two years, our welfare cases have doubled. The county has to support these people. Taxes are the main source of covering these costs. If the county can not handle the cost, they will go crying to the Feds, but IT STILL ENDS UP COVERED BY US.

    I think they should all be sent to rural areas up by North Dakota… maybe they will freeze to death or ask to be sent back to their home country!!
    We shouldn’t have to support ILLEGALS when we don’t take care of our own kids! Send their asses packing! Close the borders…. they are not our responsibility regardless what the pos hnic says!! he’s a loser too!!

      ………and end automatic citizenship to their spawn. They cross the border just in time to give birth to that new American citizen. Citizens beget citizens. Illegals beget more illegals.

    This is the one good thing to come out of this mess.
    Communities that have historically turned a blind to illegal immigration because it did not directly affect them, are being faced with the possibility that they might become another Houston or Dallas.
    And they don’t like it.
    Perhaps they will now side with those of us in the border states who have had to contend with this invasion for years!
