When Maria Ana Mendez left Honduras a decade ago to earn money in the United States, her daughter Cindy was still in pigtails and playing with dolls. But settled now with a job and an apartment in upstate New York, Mendez was ready to bring Cindy to live with her. Because she is still without legal status and could not legally bring her into the country, she paid a guide $8,000 in February to take Cindy, now 16, across thousands of miles to the doorstep of the United States. Three weeks later, Mendez heard from her daughter for the first


Children are being 'lost', sleeping on the ground, shuffled around the country, and bringing COVID with them. This huge mess is entirely Biden's making.

What a terrible situation. Perhaps they should have stayed home instead of breaking the law and invading this country. I guess that would have been too simple.

"without legal status" And we found the bald-faced lie at the center of this problem. She absolutely has a legal status. She is a Citizen of Honduras, and illegally living in our country in violation of our laws, (laws that read like every other country on the planet).

Sob, Sniffle, Sob, why we can't we just let everyone come into this country who wants too and we wouldn't have this heartbreaking story from a criminal illegal alien who is a terrible parent. Sob, Oh Boo Hoo, you mean old Americans. We will not have regained our country until every single one, repeat every single illegal alien is rounded up and shipped back to the hell holes they came from. No exceptions. Remove the lawbreakers. Free America!

These people's sense of priorities leaves me shaking my head. What should be her main priority? HER DAUGHTER! Instead she leaves her ten years ago to sneak into the USA to make money. Momma's an illegal, been laying low for ten years. Yeah, money is important, but your daughter is more important than money. Her daughter has been without her mother for ten years. So wrong. She should never let her daughter out of her sight. Instead she pays some stranger she does not know to sneak her daughter she hasn't seen in ten years into the country. Big mistake. What could go wrong? EVERYTHING! A guide that's a crook? A daughter that lost her ties to mother long ago?

Many of the people and families pushed by the Central American authorities to leave their country and go to the US are druggies, petty criminals, and generally problem people. They were a drag on their original country. They are going to be a drag here too.

Have we heard from the Human Trafficker in Chief on Cindy Mendez's fate? China Joe and his minions have enabled the Mexican cartels to make millions of $$$ from the desperate migrant trade. And get this they are going to send direct payments to Central Americans to stay home. What is the over and under that the payments are funneled to the Coyotes for additional caravans of migrants. Just admit it China Joe. America is the new El Norte.

Why isn't the mom down there at the US shelter claiming her child? She knows where she is... unlike what the headline says. So by Mom paying $8000 that should have guaranteed a 'paid' wrist band for the girl - a pretty wrist band with an ID # and 'Gold' insignia indicating the kid would get VIP treatment. Oh, wait - she was dealing with criminals - not covered by the 'Better Business Bureau' - so the child gets dumped and ICE has to deal with an impossible situation.

Left a small child behind and didn’t try to reunite with her for ten years, during which she managed to amass $8000 to pay to a coyote? I prefer my sob stories closer to home. And with real parents. Her daughter is 16 and attractive. Fortunate to have ended up with only Covid. Hardhearted me? You betcha.

This story does not ring true for me. It's virtue signaling on steroids. Prove Cindy is the daughter. The trafficking of children has become a multi billion dollar industry that Joe Biden is promoting in conjunction with the cartels. Joe has become the tool of the Leftist oligarchy, aka, Satan's lieutenants along with their media sergeants like the NYT.

Awww. Pigtails and dolls, all ribbons and curls, right NYT? How do we even know there is a real Cindy? The mother is in the U.S. illegally and is in no way ready to receive her daughter here. She has no standing and must be deported herself. How can she board a plane to San Diego without any legal status? The driver’s license she obtained illegally? When this is over, she will recoup her $8,000 supposedly given to a human smuggler, her air fare will be reimbursed and she will get reparations for her pain and suffering all paid for by you and me. And we’ll never know if Cindy ever really even existed or was any relation to Mendez. Worse than a fool and his money is a fool with our money.

This article shows the false narrative behind Joe Biden’s scheme to allow immigrants to enter thru the southern border to the US. No organization, no Covid testing, no notification to immigrant parents, This whole process is sinful, unsafe and costly, not only to the immigrants, but the taxpayers. Joe Biden should go down in history as the worst President of the 21st century.

The NYT had no idea that Yahoo would publish an NBC article on this mother/daughter right below its article. Read this one - more pathos and more details, but no mention of the $8K to the coyote: SAN DIEGO — Cindy, 17, had not seen her mother in a decade. Last month, she took a chance and journeyed from Honduras until she reached the U.S. border from Mexico for a chance to reunite with her mother, who lives in New York. Cindy, who is being identified only by her first name for safety reasons, spent three days in a hospital bed on the opposite side of the country, in California, as she battled Covid-19. Although she had spent several weeks in U.S. immigration facilities before she fell ill, her mother did not learn about her daughter's hospitalization until Cindy was able to borrow a phone from a doctor at the hospital.

Biden's infrastructure plan calls for
cities to limit single-family zoning
and instead build affordable housing
7 replies
Posted by NorthernDog 4/14/2021 6:20:25 PM Post Reply
President Joe Biden wants cities to put more apartment buildings and multifamily units, such as converted garages, in areas traditionally zoned for single-family housing. As part of his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, cities would allow for smaller lots and for apartment buildings with fewer than six units to be built next to a traditional house. Current zoning laws that favor single-family homes – known as exclusionary zoning – have disproportionately hurt low-income Americans. Many of them can't afford to buy a big lot of land, leaving them trapped in crowded neighborhoods earmarked in the past for Black and brown residents, while white

The U.S. intelligence community warned in a new report that fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic will "ripple through the world for years" and is likely to escalate existing challenges posed by America’s adversaries -- a sign of the challenges that lie ahead as the nascent Biden administration seeks to stem the virus’ spread and reassert America’s role as a global leader.

The numbers: Consumer prices rose in March for the fourth month in a row and the pace of inflation hit the highest level in two and a half years, underscoring new pressures emerging on the economy as the U.S. recovers from the coronavirus pandemic. The consumer price index jumped 0.6% last month, the government said Tuesday, spearheaded by the rising cost of oil. Economists polled by Dow Jones and The Wall Street Journal had forecast a 0.5% increase in the CPI. The rate of inflation over the past year shot up to 2.6% from 1.7% in the prior month, marking

Moscow denied receiving any request from Kyiv for such talks. Tension between the neighbors has grown steadily for several weeks, with intensified skirmishes in eastern Ukraine — a region that has been mired in conflict since Russia first backed Ukrainian separatists there seven years ago.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division decided jointly not to pursue charges against the officer. The decision came after a “thorough investigation” into the shooting of Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old who joined others in storming the U.S. Capitol in Washington during a joint session of Congress in January. Babbitt was shot while trying to climb through a broken window into the Speaker’s Lobby, adjacent to the House chamber.

How many Republican Senators voted for it? Zero. Why? It’s because Trump still controls them. They’re still afraid of him.

The NCAA reaffirmed its decision to refuse to hold college championships in states where laws “discriminate” against male athletes who identify as female.

The statement comes after several states have passed laws preventing biological males from competing in girls’ athletics.

The only way they can allow this is if they ignore the biology in favor of being fashionable. In truth, the NCAA isn’t doing anything differently than
