The allegations are shocking: A government-contracted security force is threatening to arrest medical personnel at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, if they reveal information about the rampant disease among the illegal migrants at the facility.
Senator John McCain has called on the Obama administration to create an emergency refugee program for child immigrants coming to the United States from Central America.
Despite threats from House Republicans to try and hold President Obama to the constitutional limits set for the Executive branch, the White House press secretary indicates that Obama has no intention of showing any restraint, particularly on the issue of immigration.

Many call the boundary between the United States and Mexico an “open border,” and instead of deporting illegals, federal officials have been releasing them within the United States.
Stu Harris, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Local 1929 in El Paso, Texas, said that the continually worsening crisis along the U.S.-Mexican border is the result of the U.S. government granting “de facto amnesty" to illegal immigrants.
One June 18, the Lone Star State’s top political leaders — Gov. Rick Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, and House Speaker Joe Straus — authorized the Texas Department of Public Safety to start emergency “surge operations” along the south Texas border with Mexico. The surge is in response to a massive increase in the number of illegal immigrants coming across the border into Texas, the majority of whom are women and children from Central America.
Despite claims to the contrary by a press officer at the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C., illegal immigration into the United States is a crime.
New York state Senator Gustavo Rivera (D-Bronx), introduced a bill on June 16 to create a special status allowing aliens who are not in the United States legally under federal law to enjoy certain privileges by virtue of being “New York State Citizens.”

Among the thousands of illegal immigrants — many of them unaccompanied minors — pouring across our southern borders are members of notorious gangs, including MS-13.
The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers asserts that the large influx of unaccompanied minors illegally crossing our border is “predictable, orchestrated and contrived.”

These include housing the detained children at U.S. military bases and simply shipping the overflow to other states, mainly Arizona.
