Malia Obama on spring break in Mexico with friends, and guarded by 25 Secret Service Agents




Malia Ann Obama, right, daughter of U.S. President Barack Obama, was spotted having fun with her friends at a hotel in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico over the weekend. Malia is on Spring Break with 12 of her classmates — and 25 Secret Service agents to keep her safe, according to The Telegraph.

“We are here to block access to the hotel by other people and escort the vehicles that are carrying the visitors to tourism sites,” the police official told AFP under the condition of anonymity.

Malia Obama and her friends are guarded by the Secret Service agents as well as Mexican police, the official noted.

    The American taxpayers are paying for this spring break trip to the tune of at least half a million dollars. The travels of 25 secret service agents must be paid for, as well as booking an entire hotel so that the president’s daughter can stay there.

    Is it really necessary to send 13 year old Malia to Mexico for spring break when millions of americans are out of work and can’t afford to pay their bills? Why are we paying for a pre-teen’s vacation when most americans can’t even afford to take a day off?

    Personally, I voted for Obama in the last election, but he has betrayed me with his lies, expansion of the wars, and goldman sachs ties. I see now that he is no better than Bush was and I will not be voting for him again this time.

    PS. If you search for “Malia Obama in Oaxaca Mexico” you will see many articles by mainstream press that have been forced to be deleted by the Secret Service. You will find “page not found” instead of the article that was written. Your taxpaying dollars hard at work!

    @ Leslie, although I agree with you about the unnecessary tax payer cost for this trip, I do believe you’re being unfair with your criticism of the President. So all of a sudden things are supposed to be completely changed in one term from what has been in place for decades. And what you call betrayal and lies, is simply resistance that he’s receiving from the Republicans every time he tries to make progress.
    You need to pay attention and not be blinded by a biased media. Besides who’s your alternative, or are you gonna be one of those people who votes against their own self interest because of the propaganda you listen to?

    @ curiouscitizen, I wondered the same thing? Lol….

    I’ve noticed, if you are black and you get accepted by the other side, you stay there.
    Once you go white you never go……

    Lamo! And I mean lame o! We are talking about THE PRESIDENT! Of course if ur the Presidents daughter you will need helluva security and she deserves a somewhat normal upbringing hanging out with friends . Everyone w/exceptions of other uncontrolled issues do what they want for their kids. So guess what step your game up and maybe you won’t be such a hater!

    • Deborah at 12:51 am

      Well I guess if the State Department weren’t warning us, kids or adults, that we should not be going there, it would be a different story. The fact that that my children cannot go there, AT THE STATE DEPARTMENTS WARNNG, and that Malia can, because she has protection, says it all. Get a grip. Who’s paying for this? BTW, this story has been removed from so many web pages it’s ridiculous. They re-direct you to another story altogether. Welcome to your fascist state.

      • Kelly at 10:04 pm

        Some of you obviously don’t know how to read the U.S.Dept. of State’s Travel Warnings….Advisories and warnings for the country of Mexico are listed by region.

        Oaxaca, Mexico does NOT have a warning or advisory in effect right now.

    First, all you people concerned about this child’s spring break vacation with her friends need to get a life. She is the daughter of the most hated president in american history, do you actually expect for her to go anywhere without protection? Just read Leslie’s belly aching post, “…he has betrayed me with his lies…” what if there were some other nutball like her following Malia around with those same sort of misguided thoughts?

  6. TINA at 11:05 pm

    AMEN AMEN SPENCER… cooks like that idiot that said she wont vote is those tea party doers that have those kind of thoughts can be damaging.. Malia growing up in the white house is no different from those two boozing drinking Bush gurls.. But bet those gurls did things that tax payers paid for….I bet you that…but no report on that….talking bout DOUBLE STANDARD at it’s worst since our President took office…. shame WHITE AMERica stil harboring racism

      It is spelled girls not gurls. You can not punctuate or spell correctly and I am supposed to take your thoughts and opinions as intelligent?

    • Questioning at 8:22 pm

      Still stuck on your race to explain everything huh ? Even when Pres. Obama got elected I KNEW blacks would not stop complaining about being perpetual victims. Let me ask YOU, what will it take to make persons like yourself stop dropping the race car every time something doesn’t go your way ? Just curious what it will take ?

    Do responsible parents allow their 13 year old to vacation in Mexico with their friends…..especially when the State Department advises adults not to travel in Mexico? Times has certainly changed! Sad commentary on life in the 21st century.
    And at tax payers expense.

  9. David at 2:26 am

    how about all of you haters leave the parenting to the Obama’s. If you don’t want your kids to go to Mexico for spring break, don’t send them. otherwise, mind your own business.

  10. Sybil at 3:35 am

    13 years old and already taking taxpayer-funded vacations. If we are to foot the bill for Malia, 12 friends, 25 Secret Service Agents, a contingent of US Marines, and the renting out an entire hotel for a “private group,” shouldn’t we at least get the benefit of keeping that money in our own economy? We have plenty of educational sites right here in America. Why are we boosting Mexico’s economy when ours is so depressed? Furthermore, this trip wreaks of hypocrisy. US travel advisories warn Americans NOT to travel to mexico for Spring Break. I am sick of the “do as we say, not as we do” attitude of this administration.

    Those agents get paid, whether you use them or not. I’m fairly certain that their is a protocol that needs to be followed by the Secret Service, according to existing law. Funny, I never heard anything about the Twins of the previous administration complaining about being protected–and they needed it. They were drinking alcohol if I remember correctly while partying down! Looks to me that the Obamas have raised their children right. As for the other girls tagging along–didn’t they have to pay their own way? Personally, the way things have been lately in Mexico, I would not care to visit at this time. Too risky.

  12. Big Boy Bert at 7:07 am

    Some of your comments come straight out of the welfare line. First, that’s OUR govt money being spent in another country on yet another vacation that is WAY over the top.
    Second, it is our business because the obamas are trying to scrub the press. Is it for safety reasons? Well keep them home then or at least, don’t go on Letterman when your 13 is off with friends blowing our cash in a time that oblama himself said “this isn’t a time to go to Vegas.
    The previous POTUS had older daughters and they had their OWN money, they rarely travelled and if they did, they went home. Have the obamas been home? Where is their home btw?
    This family is so screwed it’s not even funny

    • mik at 2:22 pm

      Um. I guess you don’t remember the Bush twins’ infamous 3 week party in Argentina in 2006? The European tour in 2002? The Africa junket in 2005? And the list goes on.

      A week in Mexico is hardly more expensive than a week anywhere in the US for the taxpayers.

    • Frederick Fitch at 7:03 pm

      Hey Big Boy, you are mistaken. Any immediate family member of the President is provided a Secret Service detail. That was true in previous administrations. Don’t let your economics and your dislike for the POTUS cloud your judgement. They are entitled to every perk the federal government can provide. You don’t think that way toward the CEO of Exxon or GE who gets more tax breaks than the state of New York’s welfare recipients combined.

    How many vacations have these interlopers of the white house tenant association have been on?

    The most tax payer funded vacations than any one ever to live in the white house

    • Tim OBrien at 5:54 pm

      according to the washington post, george bush still holds the record–almost 3 times the days off than obama up to this time in his first term. Your sources complaining about obama and his family using the most vacation and taxpayer money is way off.

      • Rick at 10:35 pm

        Yes that is true but where did Pres Bush go on those trips? Most were working vacations to the ranch in Crawford. So alot less than money than those of this administration.

  15. Frederick Fitch at 6:58 pm

    Many of you are having issues with Malia taking a vacation to Mexico. The United States has so much money that you are confusing your understanding of finances with the federal government and their budget. From the outside looking in you may feel that the money can be better spent on solving America’s problems. The problems we have are greater than a million dollars. We have fundamental issues and many of them do not have anything to do with economy. It is our thought processes. Too many worry about what others are doing and not ourselves. If you were vacationing somewhere maybe you wouldn’t be on them so hard. Get a life. Get over it.

  16. Gwenythe b. Harvey at 2:46 am

    The bottom line is this is an expensive gift for any person. ESPECIALLY when most of the citizens paying for this trip can not afford to take a trip to a local resort. Obama is completely disenfranchised. It would have been much more classy and wiser to have a party at someones home and also a better marketing opportunity for Obama to say that “he gets it”.

    • Frederick Fitch at 3:39 am

      All of you are crabbing. Stop it and get a life. They are kids and they are rich. It goes with the territory. How you going to hate from outside the club, you can’t even in?

  17. ana at 3:15 am

    Why are all the haters worried about Malia’s spring break Mexico Vacation? They didn’t seem to worry about, The Drunk Bush Girl’s. Boozing up the taxpayers dollars. Oh where is Malia’s black friends.?

  18. Pachonette H. at 4:30 pm

    First of all @ Raph, the person who used the spelling gurl knew exactly what they were doing, it’s a blk thing, obviously your ignorant self wouldnt understand, smf!! Next, why the hell is this news worthy, shouldn’t this child have some sort of normalcy in her life?? You ppl need to get a life!!

  19. Cynthia at 6:54 pm

    I hope it get’s scrubbed!!! Stupid a……people, I never heard anyone complaing about Bush’s drunk a… daughters when they went on vacation or on a drunken binge!!!!
    People get over it!!! She is a beautiful young lady and should be exposed to all countries and diversity! State department has nothing to do with the damn trip.

  20. Paula Harper at 10:16 pm

    this is not right using american tax payers money to send hi daughtr on vacation at our expense. it is time to make this president pay this money back. he needs to learn that our tax dollars are not his unlimited back account. amierica is out rages over his sending his daughter to mexico on the hard working tax payers dollar.

  21. paula at 6:18 pm

    our so called president of the united states of america using tax dollars to send his daughter on spring break is way out of line. obama need to repay this money back to the us.this is out of line and this is a trip he should have paid not the us tax payers.
