The Weaponizing of Felipe Alonzo-Gomez & Jakelin Caal

America is now responsible for the health and welfare of Central America and Mexico. The Democrats will make sure that the U.S. Customs and Border Protection will be crucified on the altar of the tragic, all-too-short lives of two Guatemalan children. The inquisition will start soon in the coming weeks, with the gaveled accusations building one on top of the other as every possible connection and connotation is squeezed dry in the quest for every drop of media coverage possible. All in order to destroy the notion of what a border means and what a sovereign state has as its legitimate functions.

Of course, that destructive deconstruction will just be a byproduct for most Democrats, (unlike for the immigration activists for whom it is the main purpose). Destroying Trump's presidency is the goal and if borders crumble as well, heck we'll come up with something in 2021 to fix it.

And the hard-working men and women of the CBP will not only be overwhelmed in their jobs, they will be buried under mounds of calumny.

Or at least that's the narrative that the opposition has lined up for the coming hearings.

First of all, we have to know exactly what, if any, diseases might have killed Felipe Alonzo-Gomez and Jakelin Caal. It's understandable to quote their grieving parents but that is not enough. All of the facts need to, and will be, examined to find out what happened. Unfortunately, the activists are out in front with the narratives, as is to be expected. From the Texas Tribune:

Jakelin's family has disputed CBP reports that the child went several days without food and water before she died, saying she was healthy when she arrived in the United States. In a news conference earlier this month, a migrant advocate said the girl's father, 29-year-old Nery Caal, had told him that Jakelin was healthy and had no preexisting conditions.

"He's been very clear, very consistent that his daughter was healthy, and his daughter very much wanted to come with him," said Ruben Garcia, founder and executive director of Annunciation House, an El Paso-based nonprofit that helps migrants.

The symptoms the 8-year-old boy exhibited are similar to the ones Jakelin showed before she died.

The crossing of the Southern Border can be grueling for a young, healthy adult male. Never mind 7 and 8-year-old kids. And the fact that the two separate cases seem to have similar symptoms on the part of the victims might show that some type of flu or virus in combination with the conditions and a lack of food and water caused the deaths.

But right now, we just don't know.

That means that pathologists will have to cut up the bodies of what were young kids just a couple of weeks or days ago to find out what happened. We can't just take the parents' words on this. It's too important, and any thorough investigation will also do something else that is needed.

It will show the limits of what the CBP can do when waves of migrants arrive at the border.

Everyone has to understand that.

Unfortunately, these deaths will be weaponized over the coming weeks and months. All in order to tear down the borders and damage this administration. But the real damage will last far longer than the 4 years starting in January 2021.

And that's assuming that the border wall costs President Trump the next election, rather than helps him win it.

The real issue here is, what are the true motives of Democrats?
Based on the following, the Democrats have clearly demonstrated that they have nefarious and despicable motives, to acquire more VOTES:

  • (01) because many Democrats, most of the Main Stream Media, others on the left, and similar ilk who (despicably) pit U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for votes, by pandering to illegal immigrants for 30+ years for more votes (via more representation in the House, via more U.S. House representatives, via apportionment of representatives (and electoral votes), based on population, based on the decennial CENSUS, which does not verify U.S. citizenship;
  • (02) because many Democrats are also fighting against a check-box on the CENSUS, despite the check-box being totally inadequate to prove citizenship. Democrats disguise their desire for power (for THEIR party) as compassion for illegal immigrants, while despicably pitting U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for votes.
  • (03) because many Democrats (and most of the main stream media) lie about crime by illegal immigrants, and refuse to report over about 2 thousand homicides per year by criminal non-citizens; 32% of everyone in federal prison is a criminal non-citizen (source: Source#3: cis.org/Huennekens/32-Federal-Inmates-Are-Aliens);
  • (04) because many Democrats (and most of the main stream media) lie about how massive illegal (or legal) immigration is costing U.S. tax payers $296+ Billion (or more) per year in net losses (which does not include all costs, and does not include the cost of crime by illegal immigrants);
  • (05) because many Democrats are calling for open borders;
  • (06) because many Democrats are calling to abolish I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement);
  • (07) because many Democrats want another shamnesty, like the shamnesty of 1986;
  • (08) because many Democrats refuse legislation to require employers to use eVerify (to verify eligibility for employment);
  • (09) because many Democrats essentially prove that they seemingly care more about illegal immigrants than they care about U.S. citizens, but the Democrats real motiviation is more votes (which is despicable).
  • (10) because many Democrats want more mayors like Libby Schaaf (Oakland, CA), who warns illegal immigrants (including criminal illegal immigrants) before an ICE raid to arrest criminal illegal immigrants;
  • (11) because many Democrats want more sanctuary cities and states, like California, where Democrats have passed sanctuary city and sanctuary state laws that protect criminal illegal immigrants (i.e. an illegal immigrant by the name of Garcia Zarate (who had already been deported 5 times) can shoot and murder Kate Steinle, and be (www.cnn.com/2017/11/30/us/kate-steinle-murder-trial-verdict/index.html)for that murder, despite Zarate admitting to shooting the weapon that killed Kate Steinle (which should have been, at the very least, manslaughter);
  • (12) because many Democrats want to abolish the 2nd amendment, but many Democrats and many on the left call for restricting or eliminating 2nd Amendment rights, and say it is worth it “even if it saves only ONE life”, but conveniently ignore about 2 thousand people killed per year by criminal non-citizens (source: www.gao.gov/assets/320/316959.pdf);
QUESTION: Why do Democrats do all of that (above)?
ANSWER: For the votes.

The common-thread in the list above, of everything the Democrats do, is that Democrats are motivated by their desire to acquire more power for THEIR party, by despicably pitting U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for more votes.

The death of two kidnapped children is a death penalty offence for all involved, even including anyone who knowingly assisted in the transportation of any kidnapped child, or participated in their imprisonment in any way.

Knowledge of history is illegal among the DrunkUglicans. These articles must have been inspired by Samuel Beckett, “to chose between the things not worth mentioning and those even less so”

Next Election? Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! He’ll be out in January. He won’t be able to stand the media reporting on his opposition.

I’m glad you’re reading some of the responses, but I’m still not aware of any effort of the site to eliminate those long annoying posts that no one will ever read. You’d think you wouldn’t want to lose your $9 valuation. Let’s make a deal. I’ll give you five bucks to shut down the site altogether.

Felipe Gómez Alonzo’s father brought him (age 8; from Guatemala) on the perilous journey, and crossed the New Mexico border illegally. The boy had the flu, but was initially diagnosed as having the flu. The boy was treated twice, but he died the same night.

Jakelin Caal’s father brought her (age 7; from Guatemala) on a grueling trip through the desert, along with 161 other migrants, who crossed the New Mexico border illegally. Jakelin’s father told Border Patrol agents that Jakelin was sick, and she was taken to a children’s hospital in El Paso, where she died 08-DEC-2018.

ohrealy has already convicted the CBP (Customs and Border Protection) agents, doctors, and hospitals, Trump, and Republicans.

Where is evidence of criminal negligence that led to the death of these two children, or any other illegal immigrants?

The Democrats are largely responsible for these tragedies, because the Democrats have despicably lured illegal immigrants to the U.S. (for nefarious purposes), via 30+ years of pandering to illegal immigrants with promises of amnesty; citizenship; jobs; welfare; free healthcare; Medicaid; food stamps; free housing; free education; in-state tuition; automatic voter registration when they get their driver’s licenses; benefits via anchor babies;

d.a.n. you really hit the nail squarely on the head by laying blame for illegal immigrant deaths on the Democrat heads.

The democrats, using surrogates, travel to Central American countries with promises of easy entry into the United States and a cornucopia of benefits once here.

It is simply disgusting to discover Democrats aiding child smugglers to get children here to be followed later by the parents.

Interesting article.
Another caravan of an estimated 15,000 are preparing to leave Honduras on 15-JAN-2018.

I have watched numerous videos of Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi calling for physical border walls in the not-too-distant past.
They are low-life hypocrites.
Now, Pelosi and others call a wall “immoral”.
It’s not the money, since $5.7 Billion is equivalent to only 4 days of interest on the $21.9 Trillion federal national debt (or a tiny 0.167% of the $3.417 Trillion of IRS revenues in 2017).

Meanwhile, thousands of immigrants are in Tijuana, and the coordinators who helped them, with bullhorns, transportation assistance, and other advice, have mostly vanished.

But, what is keeping those thousands of immigrants in Tijuana and other cities along the U.S./Mexico border from simply storming across the borders?
Walls and fences.

“Walls and fences” work.

Yes d.a.n., isn’t it amazing. Who would have believed it?

Posted by: Royal Flush at December 28, 2018 4:45 PM
Comment #436273

Yes, walls and fences work.
Of course, the physical barriers and wide regions along the borders have to also be monitored.

However, in highly populated areas, physical barriers is all that is preventing thousands of immigrants from illegally storming across the border, simultaneously.
The physical barriers at Tijuana/San Diego proves that they are effective.

The U.S. gave $320 Million to Mexico, $180 million to Honduras, $257 million to Guatemala, and $118 million to El Salvador in aid in 2017, according to data from the U.S. Agency for International Development (a total of $875 Million)

Yet, there are organizations in those Central America countries that are organizing the multi-thousand migrant caravans. They are now organizing another caravan with an estimated 15,000 migrants, preparing to leave Honduras on 15-JAN-2018 (source#1: www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2018/10/24/migrant-caravan/1747721002/ ; source#2: www.lifezette.com/2018/10/key-question-who-is-funding-and-supplying-the-migrant-caravan/). A caravan in April was funded by Pueblo Sin Fronteras (People Without Borders), which is a project of La Familia Latina Unida, a 501(c)(4) illegal immigration advocacy group based in Chicago, IL. It would not surprise me if it is discovered that Democrats are helping to fund the caravans, since Democrats want the votes.

The city of Tijuana, Mexico is complaining that the illegal immigrants are costing the city over $28K per day ($10.2 Million per year). That’s miniscule compared to the $296+ Billion (or more) per year in net losses to U.S. tax payers (not to mention the cost of crime and about 2 thousand homicides per year by criminal non-citizens; 32% of everyone in federal prison is a criminal non-citizen (source: cis.org/Huennekens/32-Federal-Inmates-Are-Aliens).

The aid does not seem to be working.
Therefore, perhaps the U.S. should cut all aid to those countries?

Wow, it’s that kind of logic that separates the conservatives from those who can think and reason. If I recall right wasn’t the last shutdown over 3.5 billion for healthcare? The Repubs said we couldn’t afford it then…right?

D. would have us believe the American taxpayers should repay China for the borrowed 5.7 billion to build a wall we don’t need as much as we need so many other things. D. would have us believe that because we are so much in debt it isn’t a problem to just keep borrowing so he can have a wall to brag about.

Yet we were told Mexico would pay for the wall before Trump was elected president. Now we are told we are we need the wall so bad we must borrow money to build the wall, add to the national debt to build the wall, forego other infrastructure projects to build the wall.

All because D. thinks the Dems will gain votes! He has to pound out the big lie over and over. Yet it was Trump who told us Mexico would pay for the wall. To gain votes. Yet not a word from D. with all the big lies he posts, about Trump’s lies. Why not hold Trump accountable for his lies D.?

I don’t remember that, and it doesn’t matter, because there is a major difference.
Obamacare was a dismal and costly failure.
Walls (or fences, or physical barriers) work, not to mention the $296 Billion per year in net losses due to illegal immigration, and the untold cost of crime by criminal non-citizens.
j2t2 wrote: D. would have us believe the American taxpayers should repay China for the borrowed 5.7 billion to build a wall we don’t need as much as we need so many other things.
Nonsense. Border security is needed, and it is the most important responsibility of the U.S. government, and physical barriers work. IF they don’t work, then why did the Democrats agree to build physical barriers in San Diego, CA. ? Why have numerous Democrats, in the past, say we need to secure the borders ? Also, China can’t make the U.S. repay the money borrowed from China ($1.3 Trillion). They have no leverage. In fact, it wasn’t too smart for the Chinese to lend the U.S. $1.3 Trillion, because they most likely will never get their moeny back.
j2t2 wrote: D. would have us believe that because we are so much in debt it isn’t a problem to just keep borrowing so he can have a wall to brag about.
Nonsense. Again, reduction in illegal immigration would reduce the $296 Billion per year in net losses due to illegal immigration, and the untold cost of crime by criminal non-citizens. Unfortunately, many Demcorats want the votes and despicably pit U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other votes. It is hard to get more low-life that that, but j2t2 defends it.
j2t2 wrote: Yet we were told Mexico would pay for the wall before Trump was elected president.
Only a moron would interpret “Mexico will pay for the wall” to mean that Mexico is going to pay for the wall directly.

What was clear to me all along was that Mexico will pay indirectly, via:

  • (a) renegotiation of NAFTA;
  • (b) temporary border closings;
  • (c) reduction of illegal immigrants successfully trespassing the border;
  • (d) fewer illegal immigrants sending money back to Mexico;
  • (e) a reduction in net monetary losses due to illegal immigrantion estimated to be $296+ Billion (or more) per year; etc., etc., etc.

j2t2 wrote: Now we are told we are we need the wall so bad we must borrow money to build the wall, add to the national debt to build the wall, forego other infrastructure projects to build the wall.
No. Physical barriers and better border security, and better immigration enforcement can save up to $296 Billion (if not more) that is currently lost due to illegal immigration, and that does not include the untold cost of thousands of homicides per year by criminal non-citizens, and funding hundreds of thousands of criminal non-citizens in U.S. jails and prisons (i.e. 32% of everyone in federal prison is a criminal non-citizen).
j2t2 wrote: All because D. thinks the Dems will gain votes!
There’s no “thinks” about it.
It is the truth.
Many Democrats, and similar ilk, have clearly demonstrated (see: 12 reasons here: www.watchblog.com/republicans/archives/010207.html#436255 ) that they have nefarious and despicable motives, to acquire more power, via more votes, because many Democrats, most of the Main Stream Media, others on the left, and similar ilk (despicably) pit U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for votes, by pandering to illegal immigrants for 30+ years for more votes (via more representation in the House, via more U.S. House representatives, via apportionment of representatives (and electoral votes), based on population, based on the decennial CENSUS, which does not verify U.S. citizenship.

Feel free anytime to disprove whatever you don’t think is true.

But, what really irks j2t2, and similar ilk, is that more and more people are catching onto their despicable plan to acquire power via more votes. In the end, there will most likely be enough Americans that will eventually understand how truly despicable the Democrats scheme is, which is to acquire power via votes, by despicably pitting U.S. citizens and illegal immigrants against each other for votes.

Listen Pal, just a few short years ago every Democrat worthy of the name was clamoring for a wall to control illegal immigrants and drugs. These Democrats have no decency and are garden variety hypocrites. That same shoe fits j2t2.

Walls worked for the Romans, the Chinese, the Soviets, and all the others who have built them.

What sort of excuses will the three stooges have about their rejecting a wall (or fence, or physical barrier as Hillary Clinton called it)?

  • They will say that walls don’t work, but there is ample evidence that physical barriers work.
  • They will complain that a wall won’t stop visa-overstays, despite there being a different solution for that (such as tracking visa expirations and requiring eVerify).
  • They will say that Trump said “Mexico will pay for the wall”.
    However, only a simpleton would interpret “Mexico will pay for the wall” to mean that Mexico is going to pay for the wall directly.
    What was clear to most people of average intelligence is that Mexico will pay indirectly for the wall, via:
    • (a) renegotiation of NAFTA;
    • (b) temporary border closings;
    • (c) reduction of illegal immigrants successfully trespassing the border;
    • (d) fewer illegal immigrants sending money back to Mexico;
    • (e) a reduction in net monetary losses due to illegal immigration estimated to be $296+ Billion (or more) per year; etc., etc., etc.
  • They will complain about the cost, despite $5.9 Billion being equivalent to 4.0 days of interest on the $21.9 Trillion federal national debt.
    That is, 4.0 days = ($5.7 Billion for portion of the wall) / ($1.43 Billion interest per day).
    FISCAL Year End Interest Paid on the National Debt per year:
    2018: $523,017,301,446.12 ($1.43 Billion per day)
    2017: $458,542,287,311.80
    2016: $432,649,652,901.12
    2015: $402,435,356,075.49
    2014: $430,812,121,372.05
    : : : : : : : : : : : : :
    2000: $361,997,734,302.36
  • They will complain about growing the national debt, but ignore the fact that Obama almost doubled the federal national debt to $20.2 Trillion (an increase of 74% ; an increase of $8.5 Trillion from $11.66 Trillion to $20.2 Trillion).
  • They will argue for open-borders (e.g. phx8 wrote: “As for immigration, I would be fine with open borders.” );
  • They will claim it to be immoral, or a myriad of other excuses, despite the fact that many Democrats were for border security and physical barriers at one time, and there are videos of many of them stating as much. Perhaps j2t2 will give us lessons on decency and morality, like this ?
  • They will say walls don’t work, and ignore the fact that houses, prisons, buildings, and many structures have walls.
    And there are doors in those walls, to control who is permitted to enter.
So, what new excuse against physical barriers (as Hillary Clinton described them when she proposed barriers) will the three stooges come up with next?

Should be interesting to see if Mexico puts a halt to the next 15K that are supposedly going to head for our border. Unlike before the fact that the majority are not able to just walk in as promised has causes them nothing but grief. Should they be allowed to move through Mexico and arrive up here I could see a state of emergency being declared, and the border being shut down until order is restored. As it should be. We need a barrier on our border to deny immediate entry. This would make far more difficult for masses of people to the walk in.

According to Customs and Border Protection, as of September 2018, more than 90,000 family units have been detained in fiscal 2018 along with more than 45,000 unaccompanied minors.

Arizona reported that the CBP had to release at least 800 family members in the state last week (10-OCT-2018), because I.C.E. cannot detain minors more than 20 days.
