‘Coyotes’ Are Forcing Alien Kids To Cut Off Fingers, Ears

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Illegal immigrant children forced to CUT OFF fingers and ears of other kids by ‘coyote’ gangs, claims Ted Cruz

By David Martosko | 23 June 2014

Human traffickers are forcing illegal immigrant children to cut off the ears and fingers of other kids traveling into the U.S. in order to extort money from their families, a Texas senator claimed on Monday.

Lashing out at President Barack Obama for a 2012 policy shift that he said encourages Central American parents to send their children northward, Sen. Ted Cruz said the children are being placed in ‘unspeakable’ peril when the traffickers,known as ‘coyotes,’ take over.

‘We just heard stories of little boys and little girls, forced by these drug dealers to cut off the fingers or cut off the ears of other little boys and little girls, in order to extort money from their families,’ Cruz said after he toured the temporary holding facility for ‘unaccompanied alien children’ at Lackland Air Force Base along with Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and Rep. Michael Burgess.

‘And these children are told, "If you don’t cut off the fingers or ears of another child, you’ll be shot".’ Cruz was relating accounts he heard from officials at the Lackland facility in San Antonio, according to a spokesperson in his office.

The coyotes, Cruz said, ‘are not well-meaning social workers trying to care for these kids. These are hardened, cold criminals. These are transnational, global criminal cartels. And they are vicious, violent murderers.’ ‘These children are being subjected to physical abuse, to sexual abuse. Some of them are losing their lives.’

Gee, these coyotes almost sound like our good friends the Taliban and ISIS.

‘When the President of the United States prevents the Border Patrol from following the law and enforcing our immigration laws,’ Cruz declared, ‘when the President of the United States announces to the world, "Amnesty for those who have broken the law," the consequence is that people respond to that.’ ‘And the way they’ve responded to that is handing over their children to drug dealers and vicious cartels.’ …

‘We are witnessing a humanitarian crisis unfolding that is a direct consequence of President Obama’s lawlessness,’ Cruz said. ‘Obama lawlessly granted amnesty to some 800,000 people here illegally who entered as children. And the direct consequence of that lawlessness, of that amnesty, is that we have seen the number of children taking the incredible risks that are entailed with coming across the border grow exponentially.’

Abbott has ordered Texas law enforcement officers to plug the holes that he says Obama has left in U.S. border security as Border Patrol agents are transformed into glorified day care workers…

‘While we have border control agents who are spending time taking care of the health care needs of these children, border control agents who are literally changing diapers and making baby formula,’ Abbott told reporters, ‘at that time we have the cartels who are engaging in their international trafficking operations, cartels who are importing crime into the United States, importing into the United States some of the most dangerous gang members around the globe.’

Drug cartels taking advantage of the diversion of federal law enforcement personnel, he claimed, ‘may be making well over $100 million because of this operation.’

Well, our military has been turned into meals on wheels. So why not turn the border patrol into day care workers?

      GBJ: exactly; a b.s. story.

      The Republicans are all this b.s. that the US is treating these adults by law in their Central American country
      inhumanely. This should be heaven, feeling safe and being fed.

      Not one bit of evidence, with all the pictures out there not one child without a finger or ear, or they’d take pictures of it, and it would be legal as long as they blur the face.

      I have seen photos of many of these older boys and girls with tatoo gangs on them.

      “The emergence of gangs as a problem in Central America came after the end of the civil conflicts which occurred during the 1980s (Boraz). Although gangs existed in these countries before, they did not play as large a role in creating a sense of insecurity and fear.

      During these civil conflicts, many people fled to the United States.

      It was in Los Angeles that the two major gangs in Central America started:

      18th Street (M-18) and Mara Salvatrucha
      (MS-13) (Reisman).

      In a city where gangs already existed, it was natural for these new immigrants to join or create new gangs, if only for defensive purposes (Leggett).

      There are thousands of these gangs over here. The newest style is using numbers such as above, like the tattooed ones that tried to sexually assault showed me as they said threats I can not repeat.
