Governor Jindal Outraged Over Immingration

By Pat Austin

SHREVE­PORT – Louisiana Gov­er­nor Bobby Jin­dal is demand­ing answers.

Gov­er­nor Jin­dal, angry at learn­ing via a web­site that Louisiana is now hous­ing over 1,000 Cen­tral Amer­i­can ille­gals, has fired off a let­ter to the Obama admin­is­tra­tion demand­ing answers.

He’d like to know, among other things, where the chil­dren are:

Jin­dal wants to know where the chil­dren are liv­ing, the time­line for deter­min­ing their ulti­mate sta­tus and whether the fed­eral gov­ern­ment plans to kick in dol­lars for their edu­ca­tion and health care. He also wants to know how the U.S. Depart­ment of Health and Human Ser­vices decided where to place them.

These are legit­i­mate ques­tions. Louisiana schools are start­ing over the next cou­ple of weeks and pre­sum­ably these kids will be enrolling in school, some pos­si­bly even par­tic­i­pat­ing in the “free lunch” program.

Also of spe­cific con­cern to Gov­er­nor Jin­dal is the Louisiana hur­ri­cane sea­son which runs from June 1 through Novem­ber. Here, in Shreve­port, Hirsch Col­i­seum was con­tacted about hous­ing some of the ille­gals although it was not an “offi­cial” inquiry accord­ing to Chris Gior­dano of the Louisiana State Fair who owns the Hirsch.

What is stun­ning to me is that Barks­dale Air Force Base was con­tacted about hous­ing these kids. Barksdale’s Global Strike Com­mand has been pro­posed as a four-​star com­mand which raises the pro­file of the base sig­nif­i­cantly. It would be most unlikely, given the sen­si­tive nature of the mis­sion and the strate­gic air­craft on base, that the base would be able to house these kids.

Though Jin­dal found out about the ille­gal Louisiana migra­tion via a web­site, there does seem to be some dis­pute or con­fu­sion about how many there actu­ally are. The web­site lists 1,071 in Louisiana, but Sen­a­tor David Vit­ter con­tends that there are over 3,000 ille­gal immi­grants in the state.

As Con­gress floun­ders then goes on recess, Obama pre­pares to tackle ille­gal immi­gra­tion through exec­u­tive order. Noth­ing good can come of this.

Love him or hate him, Rick Perry is right to stand up and attempt to defend the bor­der. Perry has called up his National Guard and vows that other resources are avail­able to him as needed to con­trol the flood of ille­gals com­ing into the coun­try. Candy Crow­ley asked Perry about the cost of deploy­ing the National Guard to the bor­der but in the over­all scheme of things, it’s prob­a­bly a cost well jus­ti­fied. Gov­er­nor Perry con­tends that crime has sky­rock­eted in his state.

Pos­si­bly Gov­er­nor Perry and Gov­er­nor Jin­dal need to get together and coor­di­nate a plan to pro­tect both states.

SHREVEPORT —   Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is demanding answers.

Governor Jindal, angry at learning via a website that Louisiana is now housing over 1,000 Central American illegals, has fired off a letter to the Obama administration demanding answers.

He’d like to know, among other things, where the children are:

Jindal wants to know where the children are living, the timeline for determining their ultimate status and whether the federal government plans to kick in dollars for their education and health care. He also wants to know how the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services decided where to place them.

These are legitimate questions.  Louisiana schools are starting over the next couple of weeks and presumably these kids will be enrolling in school, some possibly even participating in the “free lunch” program.

Also of specific concern to Governor Jindal is the Louisiana hurricane season which runs from June 1 through November.  Here, in Shreveport, Hirsch Coliseum was contacted about housing some of the illegals although it was not an “official” inquiry according to Chris Giordano of the Louisiana State Fair who owns the Hirsch.

What is stunning to me is that Barksdale Air Force Base was contacted about housing these kids.  Barksdale’s Global Strike Command has been proposed as a four-star command which raises the profile of the base significantly.  It would be most unlikely, given the sensitive nature of the mission and the strategic aircraft on base, that the base would be able to house these kids.

Though Jindal found out about the illegal Louisiana migration via a website, there does seem to be some dispute or confusion about how many there actually are.  The website lists 1,071 in Louisiana, but Senator David Vitter contends that there are over 3,000 illegal immigrants in the state.

As Congress flounders then goes on recess, Obama prepares to tackle illegal immigration through executive order.  Nothing good can come of this.

Love him or hate him, Rick Perry is right to stand up and attempt to defend the border.  Perry has called up his National Guard and vows that other resources are available to him as needed to control the flood of illegals coming into the country.  Candy Crowley asked Perry about the cost of deploying the National Guard to the border but in the overall scheme of things, it’s probably a cost well justified.  Governor Perry contends that crime has skyrocketed in his state.

Possibly Governor Perry and Governor Jindal need to get together and coordinate a plan to protect both states.
