Texas Judge Under Fire Over Immigrant Housing Plan

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins is facing criticism for a plan to house children crossing the border from Mexico illegally. He says they could be housed at a local middle school, an alternative education building and a warehouse at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.

Jenkins is a Democrat and Republicans are blasting him over the plan, saying the local school system and health care delivery system will be overtaxed by people who won’t be able to contribute to that cost.  

Jenkins speaks to Here & Now’s Robin Young to discuss his plan and respond to critics, including a county commissioner who says the judge is turning a federal problem into a county problem with no input from the county.

Interview Highlights: Clay Jenkins

On the need to provide housing to the child migrants

“I would encourage all politicians to go to the border and see the children. This is not about the immigration debate, and it’s not about politics. It’s about precious little children. I saw a 1-year-old girl crying for her mother while a border patrol agent changed her diaper. And her mother was a thousand miles away. I saw siblings with their faces pressed to the glass in the holding cells that they were in — overcrowded, dirty, scared and abandoned — looking at their siblings in other holding cells just wanting to be reunited with what little family they had left. If people go see what I have seen, and what faith leaders have seen, then this political rhetoric will stop and this community will unite and focus on helping these precious children.”

On people who claim making the border more secure will fix this crisis

“Saying, ‘Let’s make the border more secure’ when you have children stacked on top of each other in drunk tank-like holding cells that are designed to hold six adults, but have 30 children in them… it’s not the answer.”

On how a number of people will benefit from a housing solution for the children

“I had men on the verge of tears. Men who have worked 14-hour shifts, six days a week and did not sign up for the sort of work that they are doing in this crisis. We need to provide them with the capacity to move these children out of these harsh and overcrowded conditions, and move them to compassionate care. That’s not only the right thing to do for the children, it’s the right thing to do to support our border patrol agents, our ICE agents, and our DPS officers who are working so hard.”

    Thanks for the post, Wade. I want to continue to keep the pressure and spotlight on this asshole and his plan.

    Mind you that FEMA headquarters for FEMA Region 6 is in Denton, TX which is basically a suburb of Dallas just Northwest of it, so this housing of illegals in Dallas doesn’t surprise me. I just refuse to allow them to make it happen and will not let it happen without a fight.

    “It’s about precious little children. I saw a 1-year-old girl crying for her mother while a border patrol agent changed her diaper. And her mother was a thousand miles away.”

    THIS PIECE OF SHIT IS USING THE “THINK OF THE CHILDREN” EMOTIONAL CRAP!!!

    HE NEEDS TO BE HANGED FOR HIGH TREASON!!!!!! TREASON!!!!! 😡 😡

    GRR!!! THIS PISSES ME OFF!!!

    • James says:

      Absolutely right on!!! A campaign should be started to drum the sob out of his position and standing for being a traitor — then he might see that this DOES have something to do with politics, after all — the politics of our Constitution and Bill of Rights, not to mention our being “We the People” and his being a public servant.

  3. NC says:

    “It’s not about politics. It’s about precious little children.”

    GRR!!!! I so wanna hang this little treasonous weasel’s neck by a hemp rope. 😡

    • Millard says:

      Remember NC, the Cubans did it!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s the new blame game for the immigration crisis and now some douchebag Senator (Menendez) who did the “Rush Limbaugh” in the Dominican Republic with his little boys is complaining that “The Cubans did it!” How sick does it have to get before we find the Liberty tree to hang a noose from?

      • NC says:

        There’s so many people they are putting the blame on in this whole fiasco that they are trying to make it impossible for the people to pinpoint and attack the source of the problem which is the government in DC and the Zionist Jews controlling them. And I also would like to include the state governments and just about every other government official right down to the meter maid.

    This ass hat thinks using the schools is a wonderful idea???? What are the poor little children going to pick up from those schools when they return after summer vacation….. It is time to get tough on those officials and the illegals ….. send them back and recall all officials…… Do these people think that they are immune from any disease?????? If they are not stopped, these will be the people that come to kill you………….

  5. Enbe says:

    Oh boo hoo hoo hoo. Did you hear that Gomer? He saw a 1-year-old girl crying and her mother was 1000 miles away.

    Then we have another crime in which this queen’s admiralty law conspirator is complicit – kidnapping! And what is he going to do about? Why, house them in a school or some such in Dallas metro rather than return the baby to her mother in Guatemala or El Salvador.

    Puhlease, how can anyone with a head on their neck and live brain in their head not catch on to this disgusting JA’s lies.

    I’ll probably change my mind in a few hours after I cool down, but I’m about to the point that any of the idiots in the population that swallow and believe this stinking drivel ought to be culled.

  6. EJ Gunt says:

    The title to this article should read , Texas judge set on fire for treason !!!

  7. # 1 NWO Hatr says:

    “Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins is facing criticism for a plan to house children crossing the border from Mexico illegally.”

    CRITICISM?? WTF???

    This POS traitor should be facing charges.

    AND a rope!

  8. Kelly Phillips says:

    I can not even believe this is happening in America. Our Government gives these Countries so much Federal aide, that should go towards helping these people and their kids. We have our own kids that are already here living in the streets. What’s the Government doing for them? Nothing~

    • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

      In the first place, Kelly, it’s NOT our government. It can only legitimately be referred to as “the so-called ‘government’ “, or “the communist insurgency”.

      Secondly, their intent is NOT to help Americans, but to kill as many as possible, and enslave the rest.

      Welcome to reality.

  9. NC says:

    “That’s not only the right thing to do for the children, it’s the right thing to do to support our border patrol agents, our ICE agents, and our DPS officers who are working so hard.”

    You mean like those border agents, ICE agents and DPS officers that have been infected with Scabies, Lice and Tuberculosis, due to these “precious little children”?

    Unflippinbelievable!

  10. NC says:

    “Saying, ‘Let’s make the border more secure’ when you have children stacked on top of each other in drunk tank-like holding cells that are designed to hold six adults, but have 30 children in them… it’s not the answer.”

    Well then, throw them back into their own country and bomb the hell out of their government if they come back. That would solve the problem real quick, now wouldn’t it?

  11. NC says:

    “I would encourage all politicians to go to the border and see the children.”

    Why? So they can come back as walking biological disease?

    “This is not about the immigration debate, and it’s not about politics. It’s about precious little children.”

    Oh PUUHHLLEAASSEEE!!!………..Spare me the repetitive bullshit!
