American taxpayers footing the bill for world’s biggest orphanage

America is a nation in decline. We are embroiled in several major scandals and crises. We have record numbers in poverty and on food stamps. We have median income wages lowering. We have the lowest workforce participation rate in almost 40 years. And we have lost all standing and credibility on the international scene. There is no trust or confidence in the federal government as politicians bicker and become fat off special interest contributions and bribe the American electorate with the largesse of the taxpayer.

At the same time, we are witnessing the loss of American sovereignty. And with all of that will America now become the world’s biggest orphanage?

According to The Hill, responsibility for dealing with the massive new flow of illegal immigrant children on the southern border has fallen to a government agency that fumbled Obamacare’s rollout — the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The number of children caught crossing the Mexican border without an adult has jumped tenfold and is overwhelming officials charged with caring for them in federal custody.

The Cloward-Piven strategy — you remember that — is alive and working quite well as the liberal progressives outlined. This is no conspiracy theory. It’s the truth.

HHS’s obscure Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program handled about 6,000 to 8,000 children a year between 2003 and 2011 while they were readied for deportation or took their cases to court. But a new wave of immigrants from Central America means the workload could soar to 90,000 unaccompanied kids this fiscal year and 127,000 in 2015, advocates told The Hill.

President Obama is asking Congress to more than double the program’s budget with an extra $1.4 billion for shelter, food, clothing and services.

So let me get this straight: we’re going to borrow more money in order to supply more foreign aid to countries are sending their children to America, for which we will need to borrow more money for their care — folks, you cannot make this up.

We reported on Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Attorney General Eric Holder stating they will bring legal action against any school district that denies education to illegal immigrant children – it sure seems this is all purposeful by the Obama administration. After all, they started advertising for “escorts” in January.

So now, it will fall upon the American taxpayer to fund the education for illegal children coming into our country — at a time when many Americans are struggling to provide for a quality education for their own American children. And what of the impending health crisis that could inflict the United States with a massive outbreak of measles and tuberculosis? I guess American workers – who are seeing their wages depressed and unable to fill up their gas tanks or grocery shopping carts — will just have to foot the illegal immigrant healthcare costs.

“The administration wants to both control the number of kids crossing the border and also ensure their protection in custody — the priority should be to the former. It’s a difficult balancing act, and HHS is right at the center.” The fact that the child immigrant surge must be tackled by the embattled agency still working to implement ObamaCare has caught Capitol Hill largely off guard — gee, it seems everything is catching the Obama administration “off guard” – or maybe that’s the way they want us to see it.

The Hill reports that the Obama administration originally requested $868 million for the unaccompanied minor program this fiscal year, the same level as last year despite a rise in the number of children at the border. Now the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said the influx could cost the government up to $2 billion, and it’s asking Congress to pay. The Senate Appropriations Committee voted this month to provide $2 billion, but it is unclear whether the GOP-controlled House will follow. Advocates are urging Congress and Obama to find the money to support the children and families in custody.

You know, at some point we will need to have an American president who is focused on America and American citizens. This nation is at a point of economic collapse and assimilating immigrants through the expansion of the welfare nanny-state and dependency society may be nice politically but not practically.

This is a result of Obama’s unilateral action by executive order on immigration policy. We cannot give foreign aid and then turn right around and accept the citizens of foreign nations. We cannot have a breakdown of our sovereign Republic. These children must be returned home, to their parents, because we all know what will occur: free airline tickets to unite the parents with their children.

The liberals are very astute – more accurately, conniving and devious — in making this an emotional issue. But my emotions are for American children and preserving the American dream for them.
