CPB to permit media access to Nogales processing center

It was leaked photos from the U.S. Border Patrol processing centers in the Rio Grande Valley that gave much of the American public an idea of the scope of the country’s current immigration problem, with unaccompanied minors pouring over the border into the U.S.A. by the tens of thousands.

The Department of Homeland Security began busing illegals from the overwhelmed and overcrowded facilities in Texas to Arizona. As Katie Pavlich reported, media were banned from touring the Nogales Border Patrol Processing Center, where thousands of unaccompanied children from Central America were sleeping in chain-linked cells.

In a reversal by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), media will be allowed into the Nogales processing center. Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake issued a statement today:

This would be welcome news, because it is obviously in the public’s interest to know the actual conditions in that facility, which is currently holding a large number of unaccompanied children who illegally crossed our southern border into the United States in recent weeks. We strongly urge CBP to be transparent and accommodate all reasonable requests for media access to the facility, while ensuring the privacy and safety of the individuals being held there.

Sally Kohn: Conservatives ignore US-Canada border because they are racist

http://twitter.com/#!/missADelgado/status/490475387164819456

There is no other reasonable way to interpret Kohn’s tweet:

She didn’t explicitly call conservatives racist, but everyone knows what she was getting at:

In fact, some conservatives do worry about the security of the U.S.-Canada border. But sane people understand that not all our borders deserve equal attention at the moment.

He didn’t remove her from that list until now?

Update:

Yeah, right.

Immigrants from West African countries caught at southern border

Action 4 News reporter Nadia Galindo reported Friday night that hundreds of immigrants who have crossed the southern border in the Rio Grande Valley have come from West African countries where Ebola outbreaks are occurring.

Galindo reports:

Immigrants from West African countries have entered the US illegally, according to Chris Cabrera with the National Border Patrol Council.

“Not too long ago we did catch some people, I believe, from Liberia,” he said.

During the 2013 fiscal year, statistics from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security website show Border Patrol agents apprehended 112 immigrants from Guinea, 231 from Liberia and 145 immigrants from Sierra Leone, which are the three countries currently experiencing the most cases of Ebola.

“Our main concern like it’s always been is the health and safety of our agents,” Cabrera said.

He worries agents are not properly protected in the event they come across an immigrant with the Ebola virus.

“Our agents are trained, however, they are not medical professionals,” he said.

No Illegal Alien Child’s Lawyer Left Behind: Zoe Lofgren wants you to pay!

Hmm, we wonder who will pay for all those lawyers. We’re pretty sure the illegal aliens won’t.

According to FoxNews.com, the American Civil Liberties Union “has already sued the federal government to ensure that each of the 60,000-plus unaccompanied children who have come across the border since November gets taxpayer-funded representation at deportation hearings” [emphasis added].

Welcome to the Immigration Lawyers’ Enrichment Act.

Remember, a whole nine days ago, when White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest insisted that most unaccompanied minor illegal aliens will be deported?

Ha ha, that was a good one. The unfortunate truth is that most will never be removed:

More than a decade ago, Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin described the U.S. deportation system as “It Ain’t Over ‘Til the Alien Wins.”

Same old, same old.
