Obama’s Children’s Crusade: Probably a Smuggling Racket

by W.F. Price on June 18, 2014

The sudden “Children’s Crusade” of Central American kids across our southern border has outraged Americans, but nobody seems to know who is behind it. Certainly, it’s partly Barack Obama’s fault for enticing the Central Americans with promises not to deport kids, but how could tens of thousands of children suddenly make it all the way across Mexico to show up in such large numbers on our border?

After reading an LA Times article on the invasion in which a woman at the border surrenders herself with her kids in the belief that single mothers will not be deported if they are apprehended [she's probably correct: I recently read a report written by a border patrol officer who reported that people who are not from bordering countries are simply issued summons to court and then released on their own recognizance -- he said they simply turn themselves in, get the summons, then disappear], I figured there must be some kind of organized effort to move these people.

I decided to do a little research, knowing that few people bother to go to the source even here in the US, so the number of Americans paying attention to Central American sources must be tiny. It turns out that the governments and media of Central American countries are very much complicit in the human trafficking, possibly assuming that remittances will be a source of income for their crime and poverty-infested little fiefdoms, and that in any event they can keep the cash flowing to their criminal cronies – and ultimately themselves – by subsidizing the smuggling industry.

It turns out that they are not only publishing advice and encouraging stories for would-be migrants, but also making a pretense of standing up for their countrymen who have illegally immigrated and – get this – they are even adjudicating civil suits between migrants and smugglers to impart an aura of legitimacy to the entire operation. El Salvador is probably the largest source of these Central American migrants and, incidentally, the source of the ruthless Mara Salvatrucha criminal gangsters who have murdered their way to prominence in a number of American cities. Could there be any doubt about a connection between the gangsters on our streets and the gangsters in office back home? These crooks running banana republics have been making a living off organized crime for decades.

After reading a few articles in “La Página,” an online El Salvador news outlet, all of which were highly supportive of illegal immigration to the US, I checked out the comments. It doesn’t seem that Salvadorans are proud of either their politicians or this recent border fiasco. One commenter suggested that it is a national humiliation, and that El Salvador will look “worse than Haiti,” asking “how did our government allow these embarrassments abroad?” Most were more concerned about the right to legally travel — not to emigrate. These are the type of people in El Salvador who actually bother to comment in newspapers; I suspect that the people showing up on the Texas border are from a somewhat less educated demographic. Could it possibly be, as many Americans suspect, that the government of El Salvador is deliberately trying to foist its poor and hapless off on the great big, dumb American milk cow? Something like that, but it’s actually even worse: they’re also shamelessly ripping off their own poor.

What’s going on here is that a number of people are taking smuggling fees from these would-be emigrants (reportedly $4,000 a head from point of origin), moving them through Mexico, then when they make it to the US border, Presto! The US picks up the tab from there. If the DHS prediction of 90,000 children smuggled to the US this year by these gangs is correct, that makes kid-smuggling alone a $360,000,000 per year industry, and probably more. What does it matter if they are eventually deported anyway? Somebody got rich off the scam. The only real losers here are the desperate fools who think they’ll be granted amnesty and the US taxpayers footing the bill for this fiasco.

And why am I so sure they won’t get amnesty? Because we can’t afford to give it to them. Illegals currently prop up the US social security system, having funded roughly ten percent of its reserve and paid in somewhere around $150 billion a year. Give them the right to benefits, and the entire thing would collapse very quickly. Without this illegal subsidy, social security would have started paying out less than it takes in by 2009. Obviously this scheme isn’t going to last forever, but if illegals got amnesty it would be over immediately and the fallout would be painful, to say the least.

However, another part of the scheme involves making sure that those who do sneak in are fit enough to work and pay into the system. If they can swim a river, cross some desert and evade ICE, they probably are. But if they are kids or single moms who just plop themselves down in front of the nearest border patrol officer and wait for air-conditioned accommodations, they’re far more likely to be an expense. So we Americans are really getting a raw deal with this latest wave.

As much as it’s tempting to say that this or that American political party or official is responsible for what’s going on or that it’s part of some deliberate plot, it’s starting to look like the entire thing is just another example of incompetence and poor judgment on the part of our “leaders.” They’ve been caught with their pants down on this one. They actually let themselves get tooled by a gang of Central American hustlers, and now they have no idea what to do about it. I wonder whether our politicians can even admit to themselves how stupid and irresponsible this talk about amnesty for children was. They were simply providing a free advertisement for the coyotes.

Well how about this for an idea: find the head honcho in charge of each of these little countries, and tell him to put an end to it immediately or we’ll sink his yacht and drop a couple 500 pound bombs on his hilltop villa. Sounds rough, but what kind of a scumbag puts kids at the mercy of the criminal gangs who run both human and narcotics smuggling operations in Latin America? One I wouldn’t lose much sleep over if he happened to end up on the business end of an airstrike. This won’t happen in the current administration, of course, but another, better president would have done it.

“As much as it’s tempting to say that this or that American political party or official is responsible for what’s going on…”

I would be unable to resist the temptation myself.

Today, June 18, 2014, the present occupant of the White House is going to blame the arrival of minor children on the U. S.-Mexican border on former President George W. Bush. The current situation in Iraq is already being blamed on Bush. Obama has already served more than two-thirds of his eight years in office, and he is still blaming his predecessor for just about everything. If Obama gets food poisoning, and his predecessor didn’t even prepare the food Obama ate that made him sick, is Bush still at fault?

Ideally, the blame game will not be played with the arrival of minor children on the border with Mexico, but in my lifetime, I haven’t seen a president who blamed as many things as possible on his predecessor as Obama.

As for George W. Bush himself, I give him a massive amount of credit for not having lost his temper even once or even uttered a word when scapegoated for anything that has gone wrong on Obama’s term. I would have lost my temper much sooner if I were him. If Obama is succeeded by a Democrat, that Democrat will also blame Bush for everything that goes wrong.

Not sure how much illegals actually pay.

There are 11 million of them, and many are paid under the table, so don’t pay SS tax.

Even if they were paid officially, most earn under $30K/year, so don’t pay that much into SS…

I doubt they are more than 3% of payments into SS…

Obama may intend to give amnesty to these nonproductive illegal border crossers. He’s nasty, and he’s clever, or at least his backers are. He sees we have an unspoken agreement to use illegals as guest labor, and he decides to push this system in a way that it runs out of control of those who have kept it a win/win scheme for Central America and most US citizens too.

Of course you’re right we don’t get the working class, middle class or upper class, but the rejects from those societies. The Salvadorans are right to observe that this makes their country look very bad, as we assume that these “ambassadors” are representative of their population and country.

It’s El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras with some Mexicans mixed in. The Mexicans you can turn right around, but Mexico will not take back Central Americans. So we’re giving the mothers and children 90 day notices to appear (which of course they’ll ignore) and a bus ticket to where ever they say they have familia. For pregnant women you give birth here and your bambino is a citizen so you can’t be deported.

I don’t think this was planned, but the “never let a crisis go to waste” tactic (straight out of Chicago politics), is to MAKE congress institute immigration reform including some form of amnesty, preferably including the right to vote. 12 million new Democrats!

You see they know the average Hispanic voter is quite pliable when it comes to promising “free stuff” from the government, and so they’ll have a whole other dependable voting bloc built from their identity/victim politics scheme. Of course the newbies coming in from Central America are very used to quasi-socialist countries so they have “democrat” in their DNA.

Unintended consequences? Central Americans flooding the USA will NOT go over big with the Mexican-Americans already here. Much like “Texicans” (Hispanics that have lived in Texas for many generations) HATE “real” Mexicans coming in and messing things up for them – – Mexicans do NOT like Central Americans. They’re looked down upon.

And yes, this is big business for the cartels in Mexico. I’m sure there’s a sort of underground railroad or pre-planned (and protected) route they’re taking through Mexico. If you want to accomplish something socially and/or politically directly involve women and children as tragic victims and you’ll win. When they finally make it they’ll owe the cartels and WILL be contacted by the local affiliate in whatever city they end up in.

We have the same problem here in Australia, this time with moslem immigrants both legal and illegal. One of the main reasons that the lefties and greenies encourage it is because of the votes it brings. I’d say the same thing is happening in this case, bring the kiddies over, parents come too, grant an amnesty, citizenship and the votes that come with it.

Yeah, I was reading the comments under the articles and noticed that many of the Salvadorans mentioned “racism,” but they weren’t even referring to “los gringos,” but rather other Hispanics. Evidently, they are called “sudacos” by Spaniards, Mexicans and other lighter-skinned Latinos/Hispanics. Google improperly and disingenuously translates this as “spic,” but it is not the same at all, as it is what other Hispanics call darker southerners.

No doubt. It can’t be a coincidence that they’re all showing up at the same stretch of the border in Texas. They will be in peonage to their gangster “protectors” for years after they make it to the US. That this is going on under our noses in our own country is shameful. The US is going down the drain so fast I have no idea where we’ll be in a decade’s time.

There at least 40m illegals in the US now. Back in the 80′s the NY Times published a story about how there were 1.5m illegals in the US. I proved that there were 12m back then and they had to write another story. And this was at a time when you saw very few around and even in the most liberal cities if any of them saw a cop they would hide for fear of being turned over to immigration and deported, even though the local cops didn’t bother with them. You can go anywhere today even the smallest out of the way town and you will find some, so how many are there?
I find it amazing at how short people’s memories are and how little by little they just become used to things. This is why you have to stop things immediately. The people are sheep in the US.

A sudaco is someone who is an Indian and looks like an Indian.A zambo (like Zimmermann’s mother) is an Indian/negro mixture. The only leader in S America who was a zambo was Hugo Chavez who was of course from the North where they had negro slaves.
Zimmermann’s mother was from Peru which is mostly Indian or mixed and perhaps 15% Caucasian but they did have some negroes there.They worked as pall bearers etc. at funerals for the Whites (I don’t know how this custom began)
Argentina is Caucasian and so is Chile (with a tiny Indian group)

The quality of immigrants in the Mariel boat lift was quite good. They tend to have no respect for Central Americans illegal immigrants or even Puerto Ricans. They are often Republicans and middle class. They seem to light skinned, which is a class indicator in their native Cuba.

And yet with so many scandals, controversies and crises there is still a huge swath of Americans that believe Obama is one of the greatest presidents of all time. His cult of personality is that powerful.

We have no leadership, just a president that decided to do as little as possible (except some executive orders catering to his base), hoping to hang on until the end. Now it’s all piled up at the oval office door and he’s STILL disengaged if not purposefully oblivious. He’s really not into governing. The office of the presidency is beneath him. It’s tedious and a little boring. It’s an astounding time in our history – that such an apathetic incompetent could become president, TWICE!

I respectfully disagree that illegal aliens are supporting Social Security. The S.S. system does not have its own account. It’s funded by general revenues, and illegal aliens, working at low income jobs and often being paid under the table, are a net fiscal loss.

I’m amused when some people say we must open the floodgates to Third World immigration to keep S.S. afloat. Even if we assume that they can support the system, we also must assume that eventually they will become citizens and vote. Does anyone really think they are going to accept taxation to support elderly gringos? And as diversity tears America apart, there won’t be much security for anyone, social or otherwise.

And doesn’t everyone have needs?

NPR milked the issue with references to crying kids, scared mothers, confused teesn, etc. It said the kids were just trying to reunite with their families. You know, like gang members re-uniting with their mafia families.

Disgusting. No “other side” presented. Just pro-criminal nuns talking about serving god and the needy.

Just like there is no focus on illegal rapists. The hysteria is all about straight white college guys being “rapey.”
