    Id like to hear from those in South and Southwest Texas.

    What do you know of this? I keep hearing of a massive wave of illegal immigrants especially kids. "Dreamers"

    Any first hand experience or knowledge of this situation?

    SAF Base Obama Intends as Children's Facility Reportedly Ridden with Lice, Scabies, Disease

    Amid a sharp spike in illegal immigration through the U.S.-Mexico border that has left federal processing facilities overwhelmed, more than 1,000 children who crossed unaccompanied into the U.S. illegally were sent to live at the Lackland Airforce Base in San Antonio, Texas on May 18. The children have only been at the base for a few weeks, but the facility is reportedly ridden with various illnesses. Today, on an open press call, the Obama administration announced its intention to increase the usage of the facility to handle what it deemed as a "humanitarian crisis."

    Children brought to Lackland are provided with education, foster care programs, and "behavioral treatment centers."

    While the base's utilization is well-intended, a woman with "inside access" to the camp recently said its inhabitants are dealing with breakouts of numerous diseases. The unnamed source told local media outlet KENS 5, "We have had a break out of medical conditions such as lice, bed bugs, scabies, different types of illnesses that are occurring: strep, sore throats, coughs."

    The woman said there are nurses at the camp, but did not specify how many. It is also unclear what measures, if any, are in place to prevent U.S. agents at the camp from contracting diseases.

    The female source added that the children are all well-fed, but that close living quarters put them at risk for contracting diseases.

    She expressed a need for more staff at the camp to care for the children, who are currently under the authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. "We need to have additional parties overseeing the care of these children. We need Child Protective Services involved, we need the clergy, we need certified teachers to be educating these children," she said.

    The cost of the programs for illegal immigrants currently at Lackland, as well as the cost of the housing, has not been disclosed to U.S. taxpayers. The bill for additional care at the camp would almost definitely be footed by taxpayers.

    The news of sickness at the massive Lackland base comes in the face of a scabies outbreak among illegal immigrants.

    Breitbart Texas recently reported that several U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) sector have contracted scabies from contact with detained illegal immigrants. According to Action 4 News, about 10-15 percent of apprehended illegal immigrants have scabies in the RVG area.

    "We don't screen for diseases," RGV Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora told Breitbart Texas. "All we are is a processing center, so we don't do that."

    Overcrowding in processing facilities has made it difficult to identify and quarantine infected detainees. Many are concerned that illegal immigrants, who continue to come into the U.S. at record rates, may pass on illnesses to the general public.

    Sounds like BS. But I'd withhold final judgment until seeing real evidence.

    No BS friend, my source is solid, when the word Amnesty is shouted out to the world by those in power it brings large numbers to our borders.

    Certainly not BS. The local news has covered it and were told "no comment" by Lackland officials!!!

    Barry is using all means necessary to destabilize this country, in order to bring about what the Progressives truly want, a country more along the lines of many in Western Europe. To do that they not only need the votes, which these children and adults represent, but they need everyone of us in debt to the government which they will accomplish by destroying our currency and making it almost impossible to afford to live without .gov assistance.

    I'm about as far from a conspiracy buff as you can be, but it's getting so hard to not believe that the worst things are to come if something isn't done NOW! No one in the government who can do anything about it will make a move. Of course we have a few that do, but we need more.



    I haven't heard anyone mention this either, so I'll include it here as well.

    Scores of undocumented migrants dropped off in Arizona

    Scores of undocumented immigrants from Central America have been released at Greyhound Lines Inc. bus stations in Tucson and Phoenix over the past several days after they were flown to Arizona from south Texas, officials acknowledged.
    Andy Adame, a spokesman for the Border Patrol in Tucson, confirmed that over the weekend federal officials flew about 400 migrants apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas to Tucson to be processed. He said the migrants were flown to Arizona because the Border Patrol does not have enough manpower to handle a surge in illegal immigrants in south Texas.

    I read that too. They are trucking them to Phoenix and holding some and dropping some there. Letting them call their families.

    Honestly folks I feel like we are in the midst of lawlessness and no one in power hardly is screaming. Constitution doesnt matter. 1st Amendment is under attack (Christian baker in Colorado lost lawsuit just today for refusing to bake gays a cake), borders dont matter, traitors are heroes and the truths we have known for so long are now lies. Folks that arent political or that are just happy so long as they have their guns better wake the hell up.
