Despite Protests, Obama Not Changing Border Strategy

First, we have this from an outraged Associated Press:

Feds booed in Calif. city after migrant standoff

July 3, 2014

MURRIETA, Calif. (AP) — An overflow crowd in a Southern California community where protesters turned back Homeland Security busloads of immigrants gave a harsh reception to federal officials behind the decision to bring them to Murrieta in the first place…

"Send them back! Send the back!" the special-meeting crowd chanted, shouting down Chief Border Patrol Agent Paul Beeson after he took responsibility for transferring the Central American children and families to Murrieta from Texas, where the numbers are too much for facilities to handle…

What bigots.

The Wednesday night crowd, gathered at a high school auditorium that seats 750 in the desert city of 100,000 people, groaned when Beeson said four of the immigrants had to be hospitalized, two with scabies and two with fevers.

They had to be hospitalized for scabies and fevers? If that is true, that is a terribly expensive way to treat such problems. But it probably isn’t true, and their conditions are probably far worse than scabies.

And Beeson conceded that he did not know where Tuesday’s immigrants nor several more waves slated to arrive from Texas in coming days will end up…

They are keeping that a secret, to prevent future protests. And these ‘waves’ will last for more than the ‘coming days.’

Murrieta Mayor Alan Long, who urged locals to oppose the immigrant transfer plan before it began, said the city will track any spending it does over the issue and send a "big fat bill" to Washington…

Mayor Long also said he knows Washington will never reimburse them. But the AP left that part out for some reason.

Another group of roughly 140 immigrants arrived from Texas for processing on Wednesday, but they were sent to El Centro more than 140 miles away and were met without incident.

The beat (down) goes on.

Meanwhile, we also have this via The Hill:

WH: No change to immigrant surge strategy ‘at this point’

By Justin Sink | July 2, 2014

The White House is not planning to reassess its strategy for handling thousands of unaccompanied minors streaming across the border amid mass protests.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he had not spoken to President Obama about protests in California that blocked buses full of immigrant detainees from reaching a processing station.

Has Obama at least heard about these protests from watching TV? (Probably not.)

But Earnest said there was no expectation of changing strategies to deal with the flood of minors "at this point.”

Why should they? Everything is going exactly the way Obama and the Democrats want it to go.

"At this point, what we’re focused on is making sure that we can ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need," Earnest said…

Meaning, more resources for escorts and buses and air planes to help the coyotes deliver these ‘gifts of love’ into the US heartland.

In fact, our Border Patrol is no longer a border patrol. They are now coyotes. After all, they are picking up where the Mexican coyotes leave off — literally.

They are meeting the illegal aliens at the border and escorting them to their destinations in the US. However, unlike the coyotes, they do it all for free.
