Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told the committee that he'd just received a report from an immigration advocacy group at the University of Chicago Law School describing the ordeal of two unaccompanied children:
"Samuel and Emily are siblings; amazingly, ages 3 and 6 -- 3 and 6. They got here from Honduras. I don't know how," Durbin said.
"When they initially arrived in the United States, they were very quiet and they didn't open up. They were clearly victims of trauma. After two months of care and custody of these 3- and 6-year-old children by HHS, Emily revealed that both children had been raped by members of a local drug cartel.
"I think about those children when I think about this debate. Are they the exception? God, I pray they are. But I'm afraid there are many more with similar stories."Three and six years old! Those are the ages of two of my little granddaughters. What mother in her right mind would let those little ones travel thousands of miles alone with a bunch of barbarian coyotes? It is time to close the borders instead of letting people think there's a magic land in the north where money grows on trees and the roads are paved with gold.
Obama and his administration are guilty of the trafficking of these children, some of whom are dying on the trip like 15-year-old Gilberto Ramos. And then there are the reports of children's bodies washing up on the banks of the Rio Grande.
And why are we not securing the borders? It's all part of the community organizing strategy to overwhelm the system. Read about it here. Obama promised to transform America and he's keeping that promise in spades. What his supporters didn't realize is that he wanted the U.S. to collapse so he could remake us into the latest socialist, government-run country where the people are slaves of the state. Is that what you want for your children and grandchildren?
