A Dirty Underwear Protest? Anti-Immigrant Group Calling on Protesters to Send Obama Their Used Briefs. That’s underwear! An anti-immigrant group is calling on its followers to show their disdain for undocumented immigrants by sending their dirty underwear to President Obama and John Boehner.
The effort, sponsored by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is aimed at protesting government support of immigration reform and using tax money to purchase 42,000 pair of underwear for migrants being detained at immigration facilities in Texas.
“Obama and Boehner have proven once and for all that their talk of passing immigration reform amnesty, instead of enforcing America’s existing border and immigration laws, only brings more unwanted and destructive illegal immigration!” William Gheen, president of ALIPAC wrote on a message board recruiting protesters to the effort. “Instead of using our tax money to buy illegals 42,000 pairs of new underwear, we would like to send the illegals and DC politicians a message by mailing them our used underwear, and some of our pairs are in really bad shape due to the bad economy and all of the jobs illegal immigrants are taking from Americans.”
The dirty underwear campaign is a direct response to a request for bids on a large underwear order placed by the Department of Homeland Security to meet the needs of the growing number of detainees in custody and awaiting deportation.
A Danger to Others? Texas Couple Keep Adult Son Locked in Garage Apartment for Years Claiming He Puts Others at Risk
A Texas couple say they had no other choice but to lock their 22-year-old adopted son up in a garage apartment; He was just too risky to be allowed near their other kids or the public.
Dane Thyssen, 39, and his wife, Jenifer, 40, adopted Koystya from Kazakhstan when he was 12 years old. Before his adoption, Koysta had been horribly abused to the point he was left with diminished mental capacity. Once in his new home in Texas, the boy proved difficult to handle for the adoptive parents.
Dane’s brother also said the couple did everything they could to get help Koystya for years, but finally decided to lock him an a garage apartment for the safety of the entire family.
According to police, the family delivered a food packaged once a week to Koysta and allowed him out once a week for a counseling appointment and for a shower. Otherwise, Koysta remained in the apartment which was locked from the outside and the windows boarded up to prevent his escape. In April, however, Koysta took a screwdriver from his dad’s tool box while out for his weekly appointment and used it to break out of the barricaded apartment while the family was at church. He then stole women’s underwear and two magazines from a neighbor’s home which he stashed back at the apartment.
When his parents found the contraband, they called the police and Koysta was arrested for burglary. While in jail, though, Koysta told police that he was the real victim and that his parents had locked him up for years and never allowed him to be part of the family.
According to a police affidavit. Koysta said he rarely received gifts and was hardly ever allowed in the main house with his family. He also said that he thinks how he was being treated is wrong but he does not have any family or friends in the United States to turn to for help.
For now, Koysta remains locked up, this time in the county jail on burglary charges. His parents, Jenifer and Dane, are also experiencing life behind bars. Both have been charged with kidnapping and are being held on $350,000 bonds.
Tragic: One-Third of Young Girls Crossing US-Mexico Border Are ‘Raped, Abused On The Way’
According to officials at Lackland Air Force Base, one-third of the young girls that are crossing the border from Mexico into the United States are raped and abused on the way.
Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar, who represents Laredo, Texas, says “it’s going to be very, very dangerous in this part of the country to have young kids, women, and other folks come in” because of the rising temperatures.
The statement was made after an 11-year-old Guatemalan boy’s body was found a mile from the border.
“Certainly I hope they stop coming because we probably will have more deaths as the hot weather continues,” Cuellar said. “It’s not just the heat that could kill them but there are other dangers.”
“Officials at Lackland Air Force Base told us that one-third of young girls that come across – and they were just like little babies; 10, 11, 14 years of age. That about one-third of them get raped and/or abused on the way here,” Cuellar said.
Officials have also discovered a “disturbing trend of adults ‘renting’ children in Central America in order to increase their chances of being able to stay in the U.S. once they cross over.”
Cuellar said, “I was talking to somebody that worked for Border Patrol, and he said that in the late 80s there were a lot of kids from El Salvador coming in and what they were doing is they had a ‘rent-a-kid’ program. In other words they said, ‘Oh if I come in and I have a kid with me they’ll let me go.’”
Sicko ‘Daddy’ Pours Hot Sauce in 3-Year-Old’s Mouth, Then Duct Tapes it Shut
A 21-year-old Massachusetts man is behind bars after he poured hot sauce in a little boy’s mouth and then duct taped it shut.
On Wednesday, Christopher Delcid appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and battery on a child as well as child abandonment.
Police were alerted to the abuse after a concerned relative called the police to check on the child. Arriving at the Extended Stay America hotel room in Danvers where Delcid, his girlfriend and her three-year-old son were living, officers found the small child left unattended.
Police also noticed the little boy was visibly bruised and had scratches on his face.
According to the heartbreaking police report , “I could see a large bruise on his right calf. I asked him how he got it. He matter of fact said ‘Oh Daddy hit me with a shoe.’”
The officer continued, “I then asked how he had a scratch on his right cheek. He said he did that when he tried to pull the tape off of his mouth. I said why was there tape on your mouth. He said ‘Daddy put hot sauce in his mouth and then put the tape over his mouth.’He also said he hit him all the time with a black belt.”
When asked how often he was hit or abused, the little boy responded, “Every day. Daddy says I’m bad every day.”
Nearly three hours after being taken to the hospital for his injuries to be assessed, Delcid and his girlfriend showed up to retrieve the child. They were arrested instead.
Delcid later admitted to hitting the boy with a belt but claimed through this attorney that the bruises were a result of the child’s clumsiness because the child suffered from ADHD.
His girlfriend, Katherine Rodriquez, age 20, also admitted to sometimes leaving the child alone. While she is not believed to have actually participated in the physical abuse of the boy, she has been charged with child abandonment and permitting the abuse of a child.
The little boy and two others siblings are now in foster care. Delcid, who is not the biological father of his child, and Rodriguez remain in jail.
Sex Trafficking in America? FBI Raid Rescues 168 Child Sex Slaves on U.S. Soil
Human trafficking is big business in America and the profits are on the rise.
According to the Department of Justice, every year approximately 300,000 children, mostly young teens, become the victims of sex traffickers.
Each child can earn between $150,000 to $200,000 to the pimps who force them to have sex with strangers night after night. With each pimp having a stable of up to six youth, those engaging in the child exploitation are often millionaires and the industry is estimated to net 9.5 billion in illicit funds.\
Mom Put Rubbing Alcohol Into 1-Year-Old Twins’ Chocolate Milk So They’d Stop Being ‘Whiny’
A Missouri woman has been convicted after she poisoned her toddler twins with rubbing alcohol to stop them from being “whiny.”
Police arrested 23-year-old Gloria Jones after she poured rubbing alcohol into her 1-year-old twins’ sippy cups in October of 2012.
When the girls’ father got home, he bounced one of the girls on his knee and the girl threw up.
He noticed the vomit smelled like alcohol. The girls had to be rushed to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City and one was reportedly on “the brink of death” and had to be put on a ventilator. Reports say she gave one of the girls more milk than the other.
When police were called, Jones admitted to putting rubbing alcohol in their chocolate milk to “calm them down” and to stop them from being so “whiny,” but didn’t intend to harm them.
“Rubbing alcohol can be lethal in doses as low as eight ounces in adults. It doesn’t take much to put a child at risk. One of the twins had to be placed on a ventilator,” Prosecutor Daniel White said.
On Tuesday, Jones was convicted of two counts of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child. She originally faced up to 14 years in prison but the jury recommended a sentence of no more than five years.
Her sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 7.
The girls, now 3 years old, reportedly have no lingering effects from the incident.
