Protesters In Murrieta Turn Back Buses With Migrant Families

CADef:

The humane thing to do is to process them at temporary holding facilities in Texas and return them to Central America within 72 hours.

It should be done, it can be done, and it will fix the problem.

-----------------------

I thought I read somewhere (or maybe heard on the news) that there are over 300,000 people in the queue to be processed. How can it be done that quickly unless these people are processed ahead of the queue? And why would you want to move them ahead? How are they any more of a "threat" than the other undocumented crossers who came over before this recent group snowballed the media spotlight?

Benz:

We have already established that Bush can sign bad law. Let's look into repealing it.

-----------------------

First off, we all know how "quick" congress works - and in the meantime the point is that it is the law to process these people and not instantaneously deport them.

Don't you find it ironic that the Murrieta Mob seems so dismayed at people doing something "illegal", yet they are advocating for doing something illegal to respond to it?

Third Group Of Central Americans Flown To San Diego

Muckapoo: "Break the law--get free airfare to the best weather city in America"

Well they would be on BUSES and NOT planes if it weren't for a certain very loud, very angry, very small yet media-attracting crowd of tea party venom spewing hate-mongrels that went to Murrieta to stage an "impromptu" hate rally.

Donations To Help Undocumented Migrants In San Diego Pour In

"......And then those of the Tea Party Clan said to HIM: 'send the illegals to the whitehouse and impeach Obama'

These are genuine quotes from people of the Murrieta Mob that I heard on TV and paused to make sure I got them word for word and also quotes that have appeared in the LA Times:

"Go back to Mexico! YEAH!! Get Outta Here!! ILLEGAL! ILLEGAL! ILLEGAL! ILLEGAL! ILLEGAL!"
--> Shouted several times as the bus full of refugees from Central American countries and not Mexico

"If Obama likes 'em so much, let 'em stay at the whitehouse!!"
--> Despite the fact it's a Bush-era law that requires minors from Central America not be deported without a due process hearing

"I fear more of the Muslims and Chinese"(said while chanting in protest to the Central American Children). "He's (Obama) anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-White".

"GO BACK TO CHINA!! GO EAT SUSHI!!"
Said by a Murrieta Mob protester to an Asian-American journalist from Palm Springs who was covering the story.

There is even a Murrieta Mob supporter on this site who has called Obama the n-word.

It's hard to take these people seriously when they claim they are Christian and they aren't racist and they are simply angry because the immigrants did something "illegal".

City Finds More Money For San Diego Opera

muckapoo, while I agree with you on a very broad philosophical level that art can be found in anything and anything can therefore be art, I think your hostility to government contributing SMALL amounts to keep the popular arts thriving (or in SDs case, barely surviving) is ridiculous.

Not only do the arts enrich our lives, they also generate revenue when you look at our city as a whole.

Things like ComicCon and cultural attractions bring people who spend more.

If San Diego is a region with a rich array of cultural venues, it can only help our overall vitality and economy.

Personally, I think the government should contribute MUCH MORE to the Opera AND other arts venues in our city - what they give to the arts here is pocket change and yet people still whine about it.

Teen Tries To Be The Parent His Own Dad Never Was

"Why was this child not aborted?"

As someone who is vehemently pro-CHOICE, I find your comment disturbing.

The whole point of being pro-CHOICE is that individuals make their own decisions about abortions without the government or anyone else interfering.

Whether or not the right decision was made about having this child is not for me or you to say, but the fact is the child is here, and the young man deserves credit for at least trying to do the right thing.

mission, you should share that email with the media - send it to all the major stations- that is the complete opposite of anything he has said publicly. It sounds like publicly he is trying to appease the hysterics and privately he is drawing to make it sound like he's concerned.

This man is a political shill.

Third Group Of Central Americans Flown To San Diego

Muckapoo, this is about something very specific.

What I posted is fact, the reason these refugees are not being deported immediately is because of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.

I realize you and the tea party activists hate Obama, but your hatred doesn't change the facts.

They can't be deported immediately, it's against the law because of legislation approved by congress, including many conservatives, and signed into law by GW Bush.

In 2008 GW Bush signed a new act into law that was aimed at helping human trafficking victims, but also offered increased protection to illegal immigrants under 18.

Minors will “be promptly placed in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child,” the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act passed by the REPUBLICAN Administration reads.

They are often placed in foster care, or in the custody of a relative living in the U.S. until they can attend an immigration hearing. All the child immigrants face deportation, but with a backlog of more than 360,000 pending cases in federal immigration courts it will likely take years before a judge will order many of the children out.

Obama, to the dismay of immigrant rights groups has actually been trying to take steps to un-do this BUSH ERA LAW, but his powers are limited without actually changing the law that was passed through congress with REPUBLICAN SUPPORT and signed by a REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT.

So the next time one of those loud-mouthed racist morons like the one's in Murrieta has a sign blaming this on Obama, someone ought to explain to the incredibly dense moron that they have it completely wrong.

And the same should be said for the morons in the right wing media like Fox "news" and Limbaugh and the like.

People are really, really stupid about this issue, blaming this mess on Obama.
