Dems Want Taxpayer-Paid Lawyers For Illegal Alien Kids

From an approving Reuters:

Democratic lawmakers propose lawyers for immigrant children

By Patricia Zengerle | June 23, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic U.S. lawmakers announced legislation on Monday that would provide lawyers for thousands of undocumented minors streaming across the border into the United States, saying forcing children to face deportation proceedings alone goes against fundamental American values.

Since when? In fact, the US used to turn people away at Ellis Island without any benefit of lawyers. Deportation lawyers are a fairly recent invention.

By the way, Eric Holder has already issued a $2 million dollar grant to pay for lawyers for these unaccompanied alien ‘children.’ And Obama has just announced even more money is on the way. How much money do these lawyers want?

"It is a fantasy to believe that they have a fair shot in immigration proceedings without counsel," New York U.S. Representative Hakeem Jeffries told a news conference.

Jeffries and the other House of Representatives Democrats introducing the bill said as many as 40 to 50 percent of the undocumented children would have legitimate claims to remain in the United States under current law, citing studies by the United Nations and other agencies.

Then the current law should be changed. Are we supposed to accept everyone in the world who is unhappy with their lot in life? (And we mean you, Uncle Omar.)

We already have the most generous legal immigration policy in the world. Every year the US allows more legal immigration than the rest of the world does — combined.

They also said their bill could save some $2 billion a year because timely immigration proceedings would eliminate the need to house thousands of children for months at a time.

Because having taxpayers pay for thousands of lawyers, to allow hundreds of thousands of illegal alien children to stay in the country, where they will be fed, housed and educated and medically treated on the US taxpayers’ dime will save billions. Who can doubt that?

From October to June 15, 52,000 unaccompanied children arrived on the U.S. border with Mexico, according to the Obama administration. Most are fleeing gang and drug violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador…

Those countries are supposed to be socialist paradises. Why would anyone want to leave them? Besides, this is a lot like Democrats moving to ‘red states.’ These ‘children’ are going to bring a lot of these problems along with them.

    Long-time readers of S&L will recall that the original amnesty bill provided for representation by a court-appointed attorney in immigration court at taxpayers’ expense.

    Other provisions of the amnesty bill included:

    • grant amnesty to all illegals, including gang members who promise to quit the gang if given legal status.

    • free tuition for any alien who gets accepted to college.

    • amnesty for nonpayment of past taxes and for filing fraudulent tax returns to obtain refunds or stimulus payments.

    It’s all part and parcel of the regime’s Get-to-Yes policy.

    Is America a great country or what?!
