Um, what are "Brown Shirt laws"?

The good people of Murrieta, CA -- like the good people of Lawrenceville, VA, Sweden, NY, and Escondido, CA -- have said no to Washington's plan to dump an dependent alien bloc into their community. How lone they be able to resist?

News round-up. All sinister.

"Congressman Bridenstine Denied Access to UAC Housing at Ft. Sill"

Congressman Jim Bridenstine (OK) was denied access yesterday to the HHS facility at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma currently housing up to 1,200 unaccompanied alien children (UAC) who illegally crossed the southern border into the United States.

Congressman Bridenstine said, “There is no excuse for denying a Federal Representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held.  Any Member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks."

The Health and Human Services (HHS) official who appears to be in charge of the facility told Congressman Bridenstine he could schedule an appointment for July 21.  HHS Deputy Director of the Office of Public Affairs, Ken Wolfe, would not take the Congressman's phone call.  The Congressman was told to send Mr. Wolfe an email as that was the preferred method of communication. Congressman Bridenstine's email to Mr. Wolfe included this press release.

“After my visit today with the base commander, I approached the barracks where the children are housed.  A new fence has been erected by HHS, completely surrounding the barracks and covered with material to totally obscure the view.  Every gate is chained closed.   

“I approached a security guard and asked to speak with the manager of the facility.  The guard called his supervisor who said no visitors were allowed.  I asked if they were aware that I am a Member of Congress.  Eventually the manager came out and said that I would have to go through HHS legislative affairs and that the first chance to visit would be July 21st.

“What are they trying to hide? ...

Fox News: "Medical staff warned: Keep your mouths shut about illegal immigrants or face arrest"

A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.

In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution.

“There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor told me. “We were under orders not to say anything.”

The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the Baptist Family & Children’s Services, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.

The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

“It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”

She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.

“Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.” ...

...

The counselor told me the refugee camp resembled a giant emergency room – off limits to the public.

“They did not want the community to know,” she said. “I initially spoke out at Lackland because I had a concern the children’s mental health care was not being taken care of.”

She said the breaking point came when camp officials refused to hospitalize several children who were suicidal.

“I made a recommendation that a child needed to be sent to a psychiatric unit,” the counselor told me. “He was reaching psychosis. He was suicidal. Instead of treating him, they sent him off to a family in the United States.”

She said she filed a Child Protective Services report and quit her job.

“I didn’t want to lose my license if this kid committed suicide,” she told me. “I was done.”

The counselor kept a detailed journal about what happened during her tenure at the facility.

“When people read that journal they are going to be astonished,” she said. ‘I don’t think they will believe what is going on in America.”

So it was not a great surprise, she said, when she received a call from federal agents demanding that she return to the military base and hand over her journal.

She said she declined to do so.

“I didn’t go back to Lackland,” she said. ...

As for those brown shirts, the [Baptist Children's and Family Services] said they are “incident management team personnel” – who happen to wear tan shirts.

My sources say Americans should be very concerned about the secrecy of the government camps.

“This is just the beginning,” one source told me. "It is a long-term financial responsibility.”

Meanwhile, I hope that journal is in a safe place.

KVOA.com in Tucson on the finances of Southwest Key (La Raza connection noted in last week's column):  "Sheltering unaccompanied migrant children a growing economy"

More on Southwest Key from Killeen Daily Herald (Texas), this time snagging a new contract to educate juvenile offenders:

The commissioners also approved the annual memoranda of understanding with area school districts regarding the operation and administration of the Bell County Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program.

“Youth who are detained at the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center use residential education services, which are provided by Killeen Independent School District,” County Judge Jon Burrows said. “If they are in the Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program, they used to take classes from a local district like Belton or Temple ISD, but now those students are served by Southwest Key.”

Southwest Key Programs is a national nonprofit organization that operates the Bell County Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program. The organization operates six alternative schools throughout Texas and serves adolescents ranging from the ages of 10 to 17 who have been expelled from their local school districts, according to the organization’s website.

In addition to operating Bell County’s Juvenile Justice Alternative Education Program, Southwest Key operates similar programs in Bexar, Cameron, Hidalgo, Nueces and Travis counties.

Wonder what Southwest Key is teaching?
