Letter: Why is the president ignoring the health and safety of U.S. citizens?

It’s been reported on Fox News that many of the illegal mothers, children and teens from Central America are presenting signs of tuberculosis such as spitting blood, coughing, chest pain, etc., as well as measles, chicken pox, at least one case of MRSA and lice that can be seen freely crawling on them.

Some have been shipped to Lackland, others to San Diego. Homeland Security, the department that is supposed to be protecting our homeland, has been busing them unannounced into communities and dropping them. Some have already been released into the public with a three-week notice to appear in court. Not likely.

Reports have come from health workers that they have been threatened with prosecution should word of these various illnesses be leaked to the public. Shameful.

What about the safety of our own people? If you’re going to let these people come freely into the country instead of protecting our borders, why weren’t provisions made to quarantine and treat the sick until it is safe to move them? Obama is not going to follow current immigration laws. He makes up his own as he goes along. Guess who’s going to pay for all the medical care, food, clothing, housing, education, legal fees, etc.?

I’m not against immigration. My ancestors were legal immigrants. I’m against illegal immigration and a president who hates this country and wants to destroy it. If Americans don’t start speaking out and standing up for this country, we deserve what we end up getting.

    Feel free to continue "openly speculating" about something neither of you clearly know anything about. I find the ad revenue ignorance quite amusing...[lol]

    Please substaniate your ad hominem nonsense Mr. Heuer.

    Please explain which executive order or amicus brief has been misinterpreted?

    YOU CAN'T! [angry]

    The difference is that we are openly speculating, not offering our thoughts as facts like you do with your nonsense.

    Mr. Heuer and Ms. Welch have decided to develop a conspiracy theory of their own.[lol]

    Interesting thought, Thomas. Makes me wonder, too. I know I have never spent as much time on You Tube ever before in my life until chasing around after Andrew. I'm sure all those crazy conspiracy channels loved all my hits. I never thought about that before. Not to mention that I look like a wacko to anyone that might be monitoring my internet activity!!

    I'm curious... How does one misinterpret or exaggerate a Presidential executive order or amicus brief?[lol]

    Andrew
    Your Freudian statement above "I (Andrew) was not aware..." pretty much sums up the fact that your interpretations, misinterpretations or exaggerations of any document are the "Fiction" whether I "acknowledge" them or not. How much do you get paid to get people to respond to your posts?

    Epic fail.

    When did the White House, ICE, DHS and DOJ websites become "conspiracy websites" Mr. Heuer?

     
  • Andrew Liebich posted at 5:40 pm on Sat, Jul 19, 2014.

    Andrew Liebich Posts: 2999

    I was not aware that Presidential executive orders, ICE documents, DHS documents, amicus briefs, and DOJ lawsuits were "fiction." Are all Presidential executive orders, ICE documents, DOJ documents, amicus briefs, and DOJ lawsuits "fiction" or only the ones you are unable to acknowledge?
    ROFLMAO[lol]

    Apologies for the typos, etcin the above post. My first attempt at posting from my tablet. I don't see a rule but wouldn't advertising from the opinion page be an offense? That was the point I was aiming at.

    I'm wondering why you refuse to acknowledge the actions taken by the Obama Administration since Jan. 29, 2009.

     
  • Andrew Liebich posted at 6:42 pm on Fri, Jul 18, 2014.

    All of the information in the timeline is 100% accurate and quite easy to verify Mr. Barrow.

    Please provide anything from the timeline you feel is innaccurate and I will be happy to demonstrate how wrong you are.[rolleyes]

    When did official US government websites become conspiracy theory websites Mike?[lol]

    The actions taken by the Obama Administration since Jan. 29, 2009 are the actions taken by the Obama Administration since Jan. 29, 2009. These actions are all public record and available on either the whitehouse.gov or loc.gov websites.

    Why do I have this lingering feeling that all of Andrews continual failure to express an opinion beyond a sensational catchy headline has more more to lt than meets the eye? Does his mysterious "journalism" career amount to getting spare change luring people to to conspiracy websites they woulgn't ordinarily go to? And wouldn't that be the same as if some one said "tired of high rates? Go to www.cheaphome.com? (Not an actual site BTW)? It does make one wonder.

    OK against my better judgment. The timeline is reported by Judicial Watch you nor I have any way of knowing whether it is correct or not you are trusting Judicial Watch to accurately report it. Since Judicial Watch is unreliable there reporting of the timeline is unreliable do you get that?

     
  • Andrew Liebich posted at 11:05 am on Fri, Jul 18, 2014.

    Andrew Liebich Posts: 2999

    Again, the timeline includes every action taken by the Obama Administration since January 29, 2009. The actions taken by the Obama Administration have nothing to do with Judicial Watch, Infowars or Issa.

    The actions taken by the Obama Administration are the actions taken by the Obama Administration.

    Eric: To some, everything is a conspiracy. And those of us who are gifted and can root out all the conspiracies and conspirators are mocked continually. This is why we have to have conspiracy websites. A place that is safe to exchange the many truths about 9/11, moon landings (happy anniversary btw), vapor trails, Obama's birth place, TWA 800, Korean 007, Pearl Harbor, 11-22-63, Article 21, NSA, Boston Marathon, Income Tax Amendment, American citizens are property, and my personal favorite, the video of Eric Holder selling his vote.

    Right. its all Obama's fault. He didn't sign the imigration reform legislation that congress didn't pass. Sorry Judicial Watch has no more credibility than Infowars or the California embarrassment known as Daryl Issa.

    Judicial Watch's full title includes "Because nobody is against the law." Maybe that should be the LNS subtitle for the "Rules of Conduct" here. It does seem to have been a bone of contention.

    I would encourage everyone to read the timeline. The conspiracy by the Obama Administration to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens by whatever means, constitutional or otherwise is well documented in this comprehensive analysis. The timeline includes every action taken since January 29, 2009.

    Wow this time Andrew actually gives us a headline with conspiracy right in it. Anytime a headline has both Obama and conspiracy in it I think I'll pass. I would encourage everyone to go to the actual judicial watch website it's a hoot. Spoiler alert, many of the stories include Obama, go figure.

    For a look back on how the Obama Administration brought us to this point, one only need look at the following extensive timeline compiled by Judicial Watch.

    “A Timeline of the Obama Administration’s Four Year-Long Conspiracy to Grant Amnesty to Illegal Aliens by Dismantling Enforcement of Our Laws Against Illegal Immigration.”

    There has never been a poorer showing of Americas compassionate nature than those who have directly protested the children crossing the border such as in the city of Murrieta here in California. The same is occurring in Oracle, Arizona. It is disgustingly shameful. This is a sad crisis made worse by bad behavior on our part by adults (supposedly) yelling at children. At Children!! People get a grip on your partisan rhetoric and Kabuki theater productions.

    Adding insult to injury the Fox "brigades" and the tea baggers have set out to scare the simple minded that the children are bringing terrible diseases including the Ebola virus (WHICH OLY EXISTS IN AFRICA!!

    We did the same thing to the Chinese in San Francisco many moons ago when we actually blocked (imprisoned) them behind barbed wire fences in their residences (Chinatown) saying their movements were being restricted because they were accused of carrying all sorts of exotic diseases. Of course we let them finish their work on our railroads.

    This unnecessary hysteria also has become a political opportunity for local politicians to take public stands that will garner votes from the mean spirited people (you know, tea baggers). However one local politician rushed to protest a buss load of children that turned out to be the local YMCA youth on an innocent outing. Uh, the "photo op" back fired needless to say.

    Sonia,
    let me be the first to stand up and speak out, of course we are going to pay for their treatment we are also going to buy them some healthy food, maybe Michelle Obama can get involved there, we will also get them some clean clothes and then we will spend more resources to find out which ones are economic migrants and which ones are refugees. We will then spend some more money sending the migrants home and we will absorb the refugees, educate them and hopefully they will become responsible taxpayers. That is what we do, when a sick child shows up on our doorstep we do not turn them away, we are Americans.
    Let me also speak out and say I find your letter a sad pathetic attempt to use this humanitarian crisis as a political tool to attack the President with. I am certain glad we have more compassionate people running things so that all the haters can have their say without causing any real damage.
