How did the government know that 65,000 childrem were on their way to the United States? This was in January?? Do take the time to read the link to the whole story at the end of post.
Government Advertised In JANUARY For “Escorts” For 65,000 Illegal Alien Children To Be “Resettled”
The very language confirms the Obama regime 1) knew with specificity a huge influx was on the way and 2) they intended them to stay.
There is a lot of specificity reflected in this document that seeks to deal with an influx that hadn’t as yet happened. How could they know 65,000, even breaking down the percentages that would be covered by ground, charter and air transportation?
“Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air. Escort services include, but are not limited to, assisting with: transferring physical custody of UAC from DHS to Health and Human Services (HHS) care via ground or air methods of transportation (charter or commercial carrier),”

Meanwhile, Boehner calls for the National Guard. Fat Chance:
“If Boehner doesn’t demand more security now, whatever shred of faith is left on the right that he’ll fight for security as part of a comprehensive deal will disintegrate”So, here we go.
From his letter to the president:
The safety of these migrant children is a matter of paramount importance. It is our duty and obligation to enforce the laws of our country while protecting the most vulnerable and ensuring they are healthy and well protected. In that vein, your administration should immediately deploy the National Guard to our southern border. The National Guard is uniquely qualified to respond to such humanitarian crises. They are able to help deal with both the needs of these children and families as well as relieve the border patrol to focus on their primary duty of securing our border.
