Gov. Greg Abbott on Wednesday called for the federal government to close a San Antonio facility housing unaccompanied migrant children after he became aware of allegations of sexual assault.

"In short, this facility is a health and safety nightmare," Abbott said at a press conference outside the Freeman Coliseum, which is reportedly housing more than 1,300 teens who recently crossed the U.S.-Mexico border without a parent or guardian.

The announcement came as Texas and the federal government are locked in battle over a recent increase in the number of migrants crossing the state's southern border.

Righties are suddenly worried about migrant health and safety.

Probably so two weeks from now they can bitch about overcrowding at the facilities that absorbed these kids.

They play political games with children but wonder why sane, rational people think they're human flotsam.

#2 The left is deliberately using using illegal alien children - "Dreamers" as a political tool. And it's disgusting. This is what it's doing. Look at that. They are there because the left told them to come. And some are even helping to pay for the caravans.

How are Dreamers being used as political footballs?

And caravans.

What an idiot.

Back in the 1990s, I found a body in the All American Canal just west of Yuma. It's not something I want to see (or smell) again.

Anyone has a right to show up at the border and request asylum.

Most of them put their lives in peril so they can have a better life ... here.

#6 Yeah, if it's political asylum. We are not a relief valve for the third worlds' problems. The first duty of a nation is to its own citizens. How are we supposed to pay for a generation of people that can't hold meaningful jobs and don't speak English? And illegals have three times our crime rate. Economic refugees are expensive. We have our own poor to care for. And even our Hispanics hate it.

Since when?

Starting with the British colonialists who were fleeing oppression in Europe.

America has been a haven for all people who needed to escape the horrors of which ever country of origin they're from.

OOPS! Native-born Americans have nearly TWICE the crime rate of illegal immigrants:

New Research on Illegal Immigration and Crime

In 2018, the illegal immigrant criminal conviction rate was 782 per 100,000 illegal immigrants, 535 per 100,000 legal immigrants, and 1,422 per 100,000 nativeborn Americans. The illegal immigrant criminal conviction rate was 45 percent below that of nativeborn Americans in Texas. The general pattern of nativeborn Americans having the highest criminal conviction rates followed by illegal immigrants and then with legal immigrants having the lowest holds for all of other specific types of crimes such as violent crimes, property crimes, homicide, and sex crimes.

The Cato institute? Really?

Illegal immigrants make up 40% of our federal prison population. And those aren't for small crimes.

#12 You people support terrorism. Antifa lights a building on fire with people inside and CNN calls them heroes because it's an INS building. Corky ragged on me for years for not supporting terrorism. That makes me a Nazi?

#17 Yeah, I suggest everybody read that snoofy. Thanks.

"This turned out to be the latest-available breakdown we could find of incoming prisoners by immigration status. According to the chart, 58 percent (43,479) of the 74,911 individuals that year were U.S. citizens."

We also asked the Bureau of Prisons for the percentage of undocumented immigrants among the entire federal prison population " the group that Smith singled out in his statement. No such data are available, spokesman Justin Long advised us by email. But the bureau does tally the proportion of inmates by citizenship status--and noncitizens have recently accounted for 22 percent of all inmates.

HeliNazi is the type that would send back Jews escaping Nazi concentration camps.

There would be no border crisis if there wasn't massive suffering down south.

The US can help solve the source of the suffering for less that the cost of border management.

The greatest generation would be ashamed of the US xenophobes.

#22 Honestly Bored, if I really was a pedo-pal like you, I would support the Biden administration's decision to allow any volunteer to house up to 27 Dreamers without a background check.
