1,300 illegals stranded in Mexico after train derails
Will Obama send buses, water and food to pick up the undocumented DEM's?
MEXICO CITY, July 9 (Reuters) - A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said.
Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said.
Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States.
Children say that they are fleeing violence at home and hope that they will be able to stay in the United States.
I watched Obama's press conference yesterday and actually felt a bit sorry for the guy. His body language clearly shows he hasn't got a clue as to what to do about the border problem, and even worse, he really doesn't seem like he cares. As I've said before, he should have stopped at Senator, perfect job for him, lots of blustering, but no need to really do anything. For a President, in the middle of a crisis, to stand before the American people and shrug his shoulders and blame Congress is really pathetic. I think FDR or Truman would have handled the problem by now.
Then is then now is now. This is how soft and politically correct we have become as a nation.. The USA is now politically anxious about the Mexican vote after spending decades letting them pour through like a 3 alarm fire. Obama gets his political points from these types of issues. He puts in place soft immigration policies then challenges the republicans to negotiate a permanent form of the same. It is all politics to him 24/7. Where do you think border control is on his list of priorities?
