Texas officials: 1/3 of illegal children crossing border have been raped? July 1, 2014

I am generally extremely dubious of rape statistics, especially in the present environment.  All this claptrap coming out of colleges about 1/4 of all women on campus being victims of rape or some kind of sexual assault is demonstrably, diabolically false. Such claims are nothing but fodder for radical feminists to continue their campaign of hate against men.  I’m sure rapes do happen on colleges, I’m sure they happen everywhere, but much of what passes for “rape” at college is the morning after reaction of an immature young “lady” finding out her “true love” was just another hook up.  It’s the hook up culture on college campuses that needs ending, not the fake “rape culture.”

Having said that, it is disturbing that Texas officials attempting to deal with the ongoing sudden flood of Central American illegal immigrants into the country claim that 1/3 of the children have been raped or abused by the immigrant smugglers and narcos in Mexico.  Even if that is only 10% true, its a damning indictment of this attempt by Obama to force amnesty to the table by encouraging a massive flood of immigrants, including many minors:

As we enter the merciless summer months where temperatures average well above 100 degrees along the Texas Mexico border, the possibility exist for a larger wave of causalities among illegal immigrants trying to gain access to the United States.

With the oppressive summer heat “it’s going to be very, very dangerous in this part of the country to have young kids women and other folks to come in,” says Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo, TX).

On Monday a South Texas sheriff announced the discovery of a 11 year old Guatemalan boys body about a mile from the border. Cuellar said the discovery of the boys body reinforces just how perilous the journey is into the US.

“Certainly I hope they stop coming because we probably will have more deaths as the hot weather continues,” says Cuellar. “It’s not just the heat that could kill them but there are other dangers. Officials at Lackland Air Force Base told us that one-third of young girls that come across – and they were just like little babies; 10, 11, 14 years of age. That about one third of them get raped and/or abused on the way here.”

Cuellar says that as he was speaking to Customs and Border Patrol agents he was also discovering a disturbing trend of adults “renting” children in Central America in order to increase their chances of being able to stay in the U.S. once they cross over.

I have believed from the beginning this is an artificial crisis.  I am convinced the Obama administration has encouraged this mass exodus of Central Americans to this country.  The situation there has not suddenly gotten worse.  There is not some new conflict, or dramatically worsened economic conditions.

Someone has spread the word, and in a big way, in those countries that the US is about to declare an amnesty.  Congress, in spite of Republican fecklessness, is not going to do so.  I think Obama has created this “crisis” so he can have an excuse to suddenly declare – completely unconstitutionally, and in violation of existing federal law (that is, illegally) – a shamnesty by executive mandate.  The democrats are already threatening constitutional crisis because Congress “won’t act.”  The arrogance and tyranny of this man know no bounds.  It is shocking what has developed under his administration.  But most people remain blissfully ignorant.

I would hope the enormous sufferings of the immigrants might, however, provoke a change of heart in a group of men who should, one would hope, have more of a conscience on such matters than Obama.  I refer to the bishops of this country, who have long played an incredibly callous game by tacitly (or openly) encouraging illegal immigration to help solve their problem of a Church in collapse.  This game ignores the suffering they encourage, it ignores the great damage mass illegal immigration inflicts on this nation and the wages of workers, and it dismisses the harm many immigrants do to their souls and their families, often in abandoning them to come “get rich” in America.

Certainly there is room for legal immigration, and certainly our nation’s immigration system is broken.  But the USCCB and many individual bishops have been acting plainly in their own self-interest in this immigration debate for decades, dramatically understating the negative aspects of illegal immigration while exaggerating its benefits.  There are certain bishops – and possibly parts of the USCCB, as well – who have broadcast to potential immigrants that they will help them break the law (and, quite possibly, break up their families) by giving them assistance once they arrive here.  This assistance is often assistance in the commission of grave sin, such as spousal abandonment, which is rampant in many emigre’ communities.  Inadvertent though such assistance may be, we essentially never hear this fact even considered in the USCCB promotion pieces for amnesty.  And so the human suffering continues mounting.

There are many reasons to insist on control over the southern border before any broad-based immigration reform can take place. Until we have a handle on the immigration environment, it will be impossible to reform it. It is strange to see the Catholic bishops making bedfellows with the exploiters of the US Chamber of Commerce (I’m sorry, that’s what much of this is, exploitation), but that’s where we’re at.  Both use the same demonizing tactics to try to discredit the large majority of Americans who insist that the southern border be much better defended or controlled, be that by a fence, ditch, moat, electronic barrier, punji stakes, tiger traps, whatever.  The status quo only benefits certain narrow interests.  Ditto shamnesty.  It’s just a great shame and embarrassment to see the USCCB on the wrong side of an issue again.

And the border will continue to remain porous until Texans are allowed to take care of Texas.

The text here is skewed, at least on Opera.

Dude. You are WAY off base here and should get yourself to confession. This post is in NO WAY charitable, nor is there any truth in most of what you say, making accusations (it’s called bearing false witness) and creating scandal. I *LIVE* on the border and it most certainly is a crisis, regardless of the speculated cause. These children, and even adults *are* abused and raped along the way in many instances. They are not looking to get rich, they just want to survive. Or be reunited with their parents. They had nothing where they came from, they have nothing here, except maybe a chance. That is precisely why many of our ancestors came. Regardless of how or why they got here, now they ARE here and we are obligated to take care of them as best we can, THAT is what the Bishops are saying. We are talking food, water, clothing, shelter. Yeah, it cost money, and maybe some time but so what. If we have it to give, we should. Jesus did no less. He gave his very life for us. We should do no less. Let God sort out the reasons.

I do so love it when people can read a 600 word post, peer deeply into my soul, and pronounce me in the state of grave sin.

I think you missed the entire point of the post. People are being made to suffer, often horrifically, whether it is 1/3 raped/abused or 1/20, for political ends. I and many others feel the Obama administration has created this crisis by putting the word out in Central America that people should come here now. Conditions there have not suddenly deteriorated. I am in close contact with people who are extremely well informed on the state of affairs in that part of the world and they indicate there is no real cause for this vast influx. Simply because you may disagree with my prudential judgment on certain matters hardly makes me a sinner. In fact, it is your calumny that is far more dangerous in that regard than my original post.

Permanent ban.
