U.S. Immigration officials want to pay for abortion



The following comes from a May 28 release from the Family Research Council.

Liberals are more than happy to welcome illegal immigrants to America–it’s their unborn children they object to. Last week, Democrats tried to defend taxpayer-funded abortion as part of the long list of “perks” that detainees enjoy in Homeland Security’s federal detention centers.

The issue boiled over last spring when the office of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement tried to slip new guidelines past Congress that would have extended a host of benefits to illegal aliens that rival the average citizens’! And these aren’t your garden variety detainees. Most of the immigrants in Immigration’s care are convicted criminals who were transferred out of prison, where they were serving time for other charges. Even so, the Left has fought to give these detainees the best care that (taxpayers’) money can offer. Before the Family Research Council drew attention to the issue last March, Immigration was even prepared to offer government-sponsored hormone therapy for transgenders!

Now, the same Homeland Security that claims it doesn’t have enough money for detention beds is ready to finance abortions. As Rep. Hal Rodgers (R-Ky.) pointed out, “These are grim budget times. We don’t have carte blanche for even our most important security programs.” All the more reason, says Rep. John Carter (R-Texas), to put the brakes on Immigration’s abortion funding. Last Wednesday, Congressman Carter, Chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, introduced language to stop the agency’s $46 billion funding bill from getting bogged down with the President’s radical social policy.

Under the Carter amendment, co-sponsored by our friends Reps. Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.) and Rep. Alan Nunnelee, (R-Miss.), Homeland Security would be barred from spending a single cent of government funding on abortion. The Committee passed a similar rider last year, but–like most appropriations measures–the abortion ban didn’t carry over from the 2013 funding bill. A day after Rep. Carter offered the amendment, it passed: 25-21. Now it heads to the House floor–along with the rest of the 92-page budget. “I will always support and remain committed to preserving the sanctity of life,” Carter vowed, “and as a committed member of the Pro-Life Caucus, I will continue to defend human life at all stages. The provision in this amendment will continue to ensure that federal taxpayer dollars will not fund abortion.”

    “Population control is too important to entrust to some right-wing, pro-life types. Take the recent influx of Hispanic immigrants: Their lack of respect for democracy and social order is frightening. I hope I can do something to stem that tide. I’d set up a[n abortion] clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake.”

    – Dr. Edward Allred (multi-millionaire, former owner of Family Planning Associates, once upon a time the largest independent abortion clinic chain), quoted in “Doctor’s Abortion Practice Lucrative,” The San Diego Union, 10/12/80, pp. A-3, 17.

  2. Food, clothing, basic jail cell shelter, basic medical – nothing more – for CRIMINAL ILLEGAL ALIENS or other criminals.
    Remember folks that this is the Obama Administration. He is in charge. Every Dept head works directly for him and his appoint czars. Obama must bear full responsibility for his own Administration.
    Every agency is now making their own rules according to his Executive Orders – even when they break the law.

      Hey, I’m a criminal, I was speeding just over the limit a few miles an hour.

      My grandparents were immigrants — Irish Need Not Apply.

      Are employers who exploit people from other countries criminals, when they deny them just wages, a crime that cries out to Heaven for blood, or subject them to toxic chemicals?

      I walked along the railroad tracks from Redrum Burger (formerly Murder Burger) to downtown Davis. I stumbled upon some people, a father, mother and child, living in something you couldn’t properly call even a shack, some agricultural contractor had cobbled together some building demolition debris that functioned as a “roof” over bare earth. Who’s a criminal?

      Matthew 25: 31″When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne, 32 and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’ 40 And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ 41 Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.’ 44 Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’ 45 He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’ 46 And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” old.usccb.org/nab/bible/matthew/matthew25.htm#v31

      • You did not read the article – it was about illegal aliens who have also broken additional laws. If you or your family have broken additional just laws, then yes you are a criminal. If the crime is serious enough to be sentenced to jail -when you do the crime, you must do the time.
        For example when you speed (driving recklessly) you are endangering human lives. If you kill someone due to your own reckless actions you must be held accountable.

        CCC: ” 2241 The more PROSPEROUS nations are obliged, to the extent they are able, to welcome the foreigner in search of the security and the means of livelihood which he cannot find in his country of origin.
        Public authorities should see to it that the natural right is respected that places a guest under the protection of those who receive him.
        Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions,
        especially with regard to the immigrants’ duties toward their country of adoption.
        Immigrants are OBLIGED to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to OBEY its laws and to assist in carrying civic burdens.”

        • 1) The USA is no longer a PROSPEROUS nation. (Debt over $16 TRILLION, with many States being BILLIONS of Dollars in additional Debt. See US Debt Clock and specific State Debt Clocks on the internet.)

          2) There are not enough jobs for all able bodied American citizens.

          3) LEGAL immigrants are “guests”.

          4) Immigrants must OBEY the host nations laws.

          5) Immigrants must assist in carrying civic burdens, not be a burden themselves.

          From St. Paul see: 2 Thess 3:10-11. for those who refuse to work.
          – – –
          If we see anyone without food, basic shelter, or basic clothing – yes it is our duty to assist. We have no obligations to provide luxuries.

    Whose babies would they be aborting, the detainees? Are they arriving in America pregnant? The pro immigration people cry that America does not have enough citizens willing to perform manual labor and low-skilled labor so they encourage immigrants from poorly educated countries to enter our borders and then exterminate their children? That requires a continual, endless obtaining of poorly educated immigrants made barren in order to reap the benefit of their work efforts only. Can there be anything more callow than that?

      The Blessed Virgin Mary arrived in Egypt, a Stranger in a Strange Land, carrying the Word Made Flesh.

      • Egypt was part of the “Roman Empire” as was Bethlehem, Nazareth, etc.
        King Herod and other local leaders were sort of like today’s State Governors in the USA. All were ultimately subject to the laws of the Roman Empire.
