Immigrant Children To Be Kept In Oklahoma

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Federal officials said 135 children who were detained trying to enter the United States illegally are expected to arrive at Fort Sill this weekend.

The Department of Defense has allowed the Department of Health and Human Services to temporarily house the children.

Fort Sill currently has 1,200 beds, showeres as well as office spaces.

The Mayor of the city of Lawton said he expects some controversy over the issues, however he personally could not help but allow it.

He said, "It's a humanitarian feeling of responsibility."

Contrary to what the mayor was expecting some residents of Lawton say they understand why the mayor made this choice and see it as a good thing to help children.

Resident John Woosypiti said, "I hope those kids are taken care of and if they can be reunited with their families that would be a plus."

The Department of Defense has only authorized Fort Sill to stay open for 120 days.  Officials say they will try to reunite the children with their families or place them with sponsors.

    These aren’t innocents. Send them back NOW. We are being made fools and obumma is allowing it to happen. Impeachment proceedings should be started now.

    • Sarah 1

      Arnie – If Bush 43 was not impeached there is nothing that adheres to the measuring stick for the President.
      Change the channel or get a real job instead of being paid to make untrue comments.

    The invasion continues unabated. When will American patriots wake up and realize this? Barack Obama is intentionally flooding the country with illegals to “fundamentally transform” America. Translation – turn America into a non-White, welfare state.

      @Elaphas, Tom, etc.:
      The novelist who can recreate, in fiction, the fantasy that is your reality is a truly rare and gifted artist.

    • Sarah 1

      You can’t be an anti-immigrant bigot and a patriot at the same time, the Statute of Liberty won’t let you do that.

  • Leten Uno

    Arnold Fuddpucker, Impeachment huh? You remind me of Otis on Andy Griffith or one of the animations at Chuck E Cheese. You an Elaphas are very paranoid people. A mere check of the readily available facts disprove anything you fear. It’s almost funny, Obama is a Harvard lawyer that ran for president and won. He is a Historic social reformer rated in the top 15% of all presidents. Yet you GOP puppets are convinced he’s the spawn of hell and Godzilla rolled into one. You guys truly have lost sight of reality.

    • Arnold Fudpucker

      Otis on his worst day would be a better administrator than your boy Alibama. At least he knew where he was going and how to get there.
      You spout yet can’t prove. Your boy has hidden his history so effectively you can’t use it to prove your own point. Hostoric you say, by whose measure? Everything that has been shown states quite the opposite. Top 15%, again, by whose measure? His momma’s? Only thing anyone else has ever heard is how happy Jimmy Carter is to know he isn’t the worst now. That distinction belongs to your boy. For you to accuse anyone else of having lost sight of reality is laughably at best.
      By the way, only one “d” in Fudpucker. (Nice try Sarah 1)

      • Sarah 1

        Paranoia setting in Arnie? Sometimes what we are doing is what we accuse others of doing.
        My name is Sarah 1 and don’t forget it.
        Thanks Leten. I agree with you although not familiar with the Otis reference.

      • Bob Gnarly

        @Arnold Fudpucker(with one d):

        The president of the United States, like him or not, is nobody’s “boy” and should never be referred to in such a manner. He is the elected leader of our country and the Commander in Chief. Your words define you much better than they describe him and for your to deny being a racist, at this point, would be a stretch.

        Fact: The finding of a bi-partisan congressional committee investigating the invasion of Iraq showed that there was no real evidence that there were WMD in that country and even if there were, they did not have the ability to pose a threat to the U.S.

        Fact: The ambassador to Iraq wrote an op-ed piece against the invasion and the Bush administration retaliated by exposing his wife, undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame. The administration subsequently allowed a multi-million dollar investigation to find the source of the leak knowing all along that it came from within their own office. There is no way to calculate the actual loss in dollars and, perhaps, lives caused by this childish gesture.

        Fact: In the wake of the 9/11 attack, when it would have been most logical to seal the borders of this country, especially the southern one, neither the Bush administration nor the Republicans mentioned anything of the sort.

        To confuse partisanship with patriotism is to disrespect this country and the principals upon which it was founded as well as your own party. Do you think the soldiers who serve in our military who lean toward the Democratic party’s point of view are less patriotic? Do you think they bleed a different color or suffer less from their injuries?

        Finally, having read many of Sarah 1’s posts, I highly doubt that she is posting under a different identity (if that is what you meant by “nice try”). Perhaps you should consider the possibility that there are others out there who disagree with you. Furthermore, I have no doubt that many who align with your political views are appalled by your method of delivery.

      • Bob Gnarly

        @Sarah 1:

        Thank you. I decided to take a page outta your book and throw some facts in there :)

  • Get Real

    When these pathetic libs cease admiring and respecting one another, here’s a suggestion. Let THEM take these innocent illegal aliens into their homes, feed, clothe, and provide health care for them. Once they begin spending their own money instead of tax payer funds, their holier-than-thou attitude will change.

      • Get Real

        I’m saying liberals are eager to spend other people’s money on liberal agendas, but quite conservative when it comes to their money.

    • Sarah 1

      Get Real you do realize Bush 43 spent not a moment worrying over immigration? He knew we needed immigrants, then and now. If an illegal immigrant joined the military during the Iraq War – they took them and they were granted immediate citizenship. Boots on the ground willing to fight for our wonderful country. Who would you do that for?

      • Sarah 1

        Service During Hostilities : By Executive Order Number 13269, dated July 3, 2002, President Bush declared that all those persons serving honorably in active-duty status in the Armed Forces of the United States at any time on or after September 11, 2001 until a date to be announced, are eligible to apply for naturalization in accordance with the service during hostilities statutory exception in Section 329 of the INA to the naturalization requirements. This means that individuals with even one day of honorable active duty service can apply for citizenship, regardless of how long they have been a resident. Note: Under this provision, individuals who apply for citizenship after discharge must present a DD Form 214, with service characterized as “Honorable,” or “General.” Those with other characterizations (including Entry Level Separation), are not eligible.

      • Get Real

        There comes a time when libs need to stop whining about Bush and trying to excuse BO and his regime for their incompetence. It’s been 5 long, disastrous years. The current administration is corrupt, arrogant, and inept, and seems determined to destroy the US.

      • Bob Gnarly

        @Get Real:

        If you want to call pointing out the fact that Bush’s search for non-existent WMD has cost this country over 4,000 lives as well as creating a huge deficit “whining” you certainly have the right to do so. The First Amendment guarantee of free speech had been paid for in blood by countless soldiers, many of whom were “libs”.

        Also, the bail-out started under Bush. You can even look it up and see Rep. Boehner crying on the House floor begging his fellow representatives to vote for it.

        While it is debatable as to the missteps Obama has made, I doubt any president could have pulled us out of the hole that Bush and his boot-lickers put us in.

      • Arnold Fudpucker

        Blame Bush…whine whine whine, cry and moan. What else would you expect from her Get Real. Watch out…..she might call you a racist next.

      • Bob Gnarly

        @Arnold Fupucker:

        I, not Sarah 1, called you a racist and I stand behind that. Go around and randomly call some black men “boy” (or for that matter, just refer to all men you meet, regardless of race) and see what happens to you. If you had the intestinal fortitude to do that you’d learn the meaning of the word “racist” firsthand.

  • Tom

    Bob Gnarly and Sarah 1 – two delusional, Obama-worshiping liberals who spew lies at the behest of their messiah. Their “facts” are taken from other liberals, so you know what that means. I suspect neither of these clowns care that America is being transformed into a third-world cesspool much like what the degenerates who are invading this country left behind in their own countries. And I’m also quite sure Bob and Sarah could care less that the growing welfare state will soon bankrupt us all. Yes, I’m sure they’ll be quite proud of their achievement – if they’re around to enjoy it that is.

    • Sarah 1

      After 9/11, President George W. Bush signed an executive order that allowed for expedited citizenship for non-citizen, U.S. residents who enlisted in the military. Section 329 of the Immigration & Nationality Act gives the president the authority to allow non-citizen service members a fast track to citizenship during periods when the nation is engaged in armed conflict.

      On July 3, 2002, President Bush recognized the contributions of immigrants in the U.S. Armed Forces by signing an executive order that provided for “expedited naturalization” of non-citizen men and women serving on active-duty status since September 11, 2001. The order granted some 15,000 members of the U.S. military who served fewer than three years the right to apply for expedited citizenship in recognition of their service.

      Tom – you need to take a powder. Blood pressure up? Try doing some research on the thing you are typing on.

      • Elaphas

        “Instant” citizenship very different than “expedited”? But your liberal spin is expected fool.

      • Sarah 1

        The dictionary defines expedited as immediate or to execute at that moment.
        Stop calling names and stick to facts.
        Tom, Elephas, Arnie, try to relate facts not innuendo?

    • Arnold Fudpucker

      Don’t you find it curious how those two (?) have all these liberal facts at their (his/her) fingertips? They have been coached very well by the powers like the DNC kool-aid brigade. But you are right. They don’t care about the disintegration of the country under the obumma regime. Funny thing is that they actually think they are part of the elite and all these terrible things that come from the direction the country is heading somehow won’t affect them? Somehow all these great and wonderful things they claim they want aren’t going to cost them anything. It will cost someone else and therein lies the problem as you state. Someone else’s loss doesn’t bother them. Only when they are hurt will they begin to see that they have been betrayed…again.

      • Arnold Fudpucker

        Facts are hell when you don’t agree with them huh! wikipedia is known far and wide to be loaded with falsehoods and misstatements. Sorta like using Snopes to determine truth. Garbage in garbage out.

  • Sherry Southward

    I was going to make a statement. Than I decided it was a waste of my time. And I didn’t want to read any stupid come backs of judgment of what kind of person you (the readers ) think I am. So have a nice day.

  • Arnold Fudpucker

    @ Bob Gnarly aka Sarah 1
    Sure is interesting how your facts don’t match up to other proven facts. Guess it is like statistics. You just keep throwing them out there until someone believes them.

    Just how long do you intend to keep blaming Bush? What are you going to do in a few years when, with accuracy, everyone is blaming your boy for all that ails the country? Couldn’t help but notice your using your other liberal fall back of claiming racism. Just what caused this claim is bewildering but your type does use it ad nauseum.

    • Bob Gnarly

      Please state the “other proven facts”.

      Where are the WMD?

      Oh, and you shouldn’t insult Sarah 1 by saying we’re the same person. She is much more thorough than me in her statements.

  • Arnold Fudpucker

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to upset your mutual admiration society you two have going on. (Schizophrenics have multiple personalities sometimes. )
    Can you spell Syria when you are looking for the missing WMD. How about we talk about the current illegal invasion that is being encourage by the obumma regime. How about Bengahzi, the VA, the IRS, voter fraud, obamacare fiasco,muslim brotherhood DOJ spying on the press,Solyndra, NSA monitoring, releasing illegals and blaming the sequester, executive orders bypassing congress, failure to submit budgets, unconstitutional recess appointments…. and on and on.
    It may not bother you that this country is becoming the second rate country obumma wants it to be but it bothers the hell out of a lot of people.

    • Bob Gnarly

      If the WMD there is no proof that the WMD are in Syria. If you have proof you should present it, maybe you could write a book.

      No president since Reagan had done anything significant about illegal immigration and he gave them amnesty. Illegal immigration has bothered me for a long time and it needs to be stopped. It has increased the crime rate and, along with “free trade”, has watered down the wages of the working people of this country

      I agree that we need to know more about Bengahzi and Hillary Clinton was certainly not forthcoming with those. Even so, it pales in comparison to the Bush administrations lies that lead us into Iraq.

      As far as I can tell, Obama has responded promptly to the VA and IRS scandals but I’m certain that time will reveal more.

      One of the biggest cases of “voter fraud” in this country occurred in 2000 when the U.S Supreme Court handed the presidency to Bush.

      As to Obama Care, I can’t say for certain that it is good or bad. I know that I now have health insurance and I didn’t before.

      Of course the Muslim Brotherhood bothers me. So does any entity intent on harming this country.

      The DOJ spying on the press is nothing new, Yes it bothers me greatly. It also bothered me when the Bush administration childishly leaked undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame to the press in retaliation for her husband’s op-ed piece opposing the Iraq war.

      Solyndra? I need to know more.

      NSA monitoring was sanctioned when Bush signed the Patriot Act. Didn’t like it when he signed it and didn’t like it when Obama renewed it.

      Bypassing congress is as wrong now as it was in the previous administration and it occurred in both.

      • Tom

        NOTHING “pales in comparison” to the destruction Barack Obama has brought on the United States. NOTHING!

      • Bob Gnarly

        @Tom, Elaphas the Liar, etc.:

        Tell that to the families of the thousands of soldiers who lost their lives looking for non-existent WMD.

  • Elaphas

    “America and the West must face up to what is happening to our countries and our civilization. Or we are going to lose them both forever. Treating with contempt U.S. and European laws, peoples from failed states of the Third World are steadily filling up our countries and reducing our native-born into slowly shrinking national majorities. If this continues over many more decades, Western nations as we knew them will disappear forever, and be remade in the image of those who have newly arrived, and the countries whence they came. When, ever, did Americans vote for this?”
    -Patrick J. Buchanan 6/10/14

        “Thank you all very much. Admiral Kelly, Captain Card, officers and sailors of the USS Abraham Lincoln, my fellow Americans: Major combat operations in Iraq have ended. In the battle of Iraq, the United States and our allies have prevailed. And now our coalition is engaged in securing and reconstructing that country.”
        President George W. Bush, May 01, 2003

        Over 4,000 U.S. troops lost their lives in Iraq after this announcement. Countless others were injured.
