The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is welcoming members of Congress and their senior staff to tour a temporary shelter being used to house illegal immigrant children — but the invite comes with a list of rules, including a suggestion that members leave their cellphones in their vehicles.
...The tours are meant to give members and staffers an inside look at how temporary facilities are being used to house illegal immigrant children who came to the U.S. without their parents. The minors, who hail mostly from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, are being called “Unaccompanied Children,” or UACs.
Sent to members of Congress and staff by Rose Hacking, of the office of the assistant secretary of legislation at HHS, the invitation comes with the following commands:
• No recording devices will be allowed (We may ask you to leave your cellphone in our vehicle)
• No questions will be allowed during the tour, but questions will be addressed later
• No interacting with staff and children at the shelter
• We will provide photos of the facility after the tour
“This isn’t some totalitarian closed society trying this tactic, this is our own government! They clearly wouldn’t be offering up this kind of dog and pony show if they weren’t hiding a very ugly truth somewhere.”
The UACs are part of an unprecedented surge of young immigrants that has overwhelmed immigration agencies at the southern Texas border.
This humanitarian refugee crisis -- something you would normally see in Third World countries -- is the product of Barack Obama's purposeful evisceration of America's immigration laws. Bound by his oath of office to enforce them, Obama has instead chosen to open up America's borders to any and all. Cartel members, the infirm, the disease-ridden, pedophiles, MS-13 members, burglars, the poverty-stricken... no passports, no background checks, no customs inspection, no waiting line, nothing.
All are welcome in Obama's America, no matter the consequences.
