Found: 1500 Immigrant Children, Texas Walmart (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
I’m going to try to enter a facility in Brownsville, TX run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement. I am told that this former Walmart may currently be housing hundreds of refugee children who have been separated from their parents.

When Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley tried to visit a detention center for child immigrants in Brownsville, Texas, last weekend, he was turned away. The Facebook Live video of his journey through the bureaucratic shadows went viral. In the 20 hours after it was shared, it was viewed 1.1 million times.

As viral videos go, it was rather low-drama: it mostly featured Merkley standing around in the hot Texas sun for almost a half hour, waiting for a supervisor of the nonprofit Southwest Key shelter to come tell him why he could not enter the facility. One high point was when the senator inadvertently shared his personal cell-phone number with his million-plus viewers, trying to get someone in authority to return his call.

“I think it’s unacceptable that a member of Congress is not being admitted to see what’s happening to children whose families are applying for asylum,” Merkley told the cameras while he waited. “Can you imagine? You come to this strange land.… You’re seeking asylum, and the first thing that happens when you get here is you’re torn away from your parents?… America has never done this before!… The intention is to hurt the children, cause the children trauma and discourage people from seeking asylum in the United States of America.” via The Nation

      All of this could have *sob* been avoided if the parents would not have entered or sent their children into the US illegally.

      they should alert foreigners that want to sneak into the country illegally for a better life they might end up separated from family members, possibly raped and tortured at the border and held indefinitely in prison/slave labor camps, that might keep most of them away

      This is a International Human right violation though…

      discourage people from seeking asylum in the United States of America from illegal entry is a good goal. I my self had the misfortune of having the wrong immigration stamp put on my pass port in Japan, when I tried to leave I was detained by the authorities. Kinda scary but I never blamed the officials for doing their job. name one country that allows the latitude the US does???

      He needed 2 sheriffs for federal law jurisdiction and a platoon of national guardsmen deputized by the sheriff and forced their way in.

      GOD BLESS AMERICA! There have been articles stating if this overwhelming immigration continues, the U.S. population will double from 315 million to 600 million by 2050. This will cause food, water, land shortages. I’ve seen pop double in my life time. Immigration must end.

      This is probably more Obama, Soros moving people. Obama’s civilian Army, Serco is shuffling their new voters from-the USA hating countries of the world into U.S. They control air traffic unless FAA goes to private hands- which would be more secure for U.S. citizens. We are stuck with their illegals pouring in.
