Texas Congressman Says Military Bases Are ‘Turning Into Refugee Camps’ For Illegal Immigrants

Illegal Immigration Holding Center

Texas officials appealed to the Obama administration on Thursday to secure the U.S.-Mexico border once and for all as waves of illegal immigrant children overwhelm the system, with one lawmaker saying U.S. military bases effectively have been transformed into camps to handle the influx.

“Our military bases are turning into refugee camps. I never thought I’d see this in the United States of America,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said.

  1. Is ordering military housing for these illegal immigrants accessory after the fact?
    Is hiring an illegal immigrant a crime?
    What does the IRS have to say about unreported incomes?
    Or failing to file a W2 at the end of the year?
    For a person that has a degree in law, I am seeing a lot of legally challenging data about activities that could be considered criminal. I guess if you are high enough in government nothing is criminal.
    I would suggest you write your congress persons about these things. It definitely should have a hearing. But that might be a political no-no.
    The last I heard, civil law has to be not discriminatory. For instance zoning laws that are proven to be discriminatory against any one group are thrown off the books and have to be rewritten and passed back into law by the appropriate government. They normally have to be voted on.
    So if someone is making money and not filing an income tax return, that is a jailable offense.
    If someone is employing said illegal immigrant, that is a fineable offense,
    So what is it if a federal government ignores the law concerning immigration?
    The IRS laws could be thrown off the books if it is proven that they are not equally applied to all people under the jurisdiction of the country. That means anyone earning money on our soil.
    How bad does it have to get before the Congress steps in?

  2. What we are talking about here is children. The other side of this story is that we are dealing with someone’s children. The parent’s hearts are broken. The foreign country is no place to raise a child. Teorrists have made it a nightmare. They have sacrificed their own happiness and family to give these children a chance. That it is illegal is not what we should be looking at. What we should be doing is opening our hearts to these refugees and try making a place for them.
    In an ideal world we should send them back. Who among you has the heart to look into a child’s eyes and turn him away?
    The military bases are equipped to handle large groups of people.
    Our schools could be delegated as places to house them temporarily while homes are found for them. Our military has doctors, nurses, and discipline.
    In an ideal world, we would take some federal land on an island. We would contain the population to that island. Then we would ID all of these children and fingerprint them. Then we would locate the parents and offer them a sanctuary. I would ask the Catholic Church to step in and help with the relocation. Why? Because the majority of the parents are probably from a Catholic Nation.
    All of this will take funds. I suggest that a human effort be made to provide those funds to support a program of integration. That means education and teaching all of these children basic English so that they can communicate with their adopted parents.
    I also suggest we make a huge effort to locate the parents and that means putting them in communication with their children. If possible relocate the parents.
    In this group there has to be a huge resource of professions and talents. Putting that group to work is a major task. You are basically setting up an entire economy and nation from this group.
    The challenge is to make them self-sufficient. The challenge is to feed them.
    From there, the priority is to house them.
    But that is what I would be doing with our own people here. It is sad that they might reach out for strangers and ditch our own people.
    Things in motion tend to stay in motion. Things at rest tend to die. The important thing for this country is to take an attitude of helping people. Not ditching them into a welfare system that doesn’t really work.
    For too long, we have ignored all of the people that need help.
