If you haven’t been noticing, for the last few weeks, a Mexican Munchkin Migration of young, unaccompanied minors has been coming across our Southern Border illegally. These uninvited guests have pushed our nation’s immigration system to the point of slitting wide open. Due to the enormity of the situation, immigration authorities have had to find a place for these migrating munchkins in a hurry, housing thousands in a San Antonio Air Force base, a California Navy base, and a makeshift detention center in Nogales.
The AP has since reported that the Nogales warehouse was running out of supplies.
Acoording to Bowe Bengdahl’s new best friend, President Barack Hussein Obama, this unprecedented situation is due to “unrest in Central American countries”. However, Republican critics say that this situation is the result of an executive action that Obama ordered in 2012, calling this munchkin migration “an administration-made disaster.”
That Executive Action was the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allowed some illegal aliens who came to America as minors to defer deportation for two years. Last week, the administration announced guidelines for how these lawbreakers could defer deportation for a further two years.
DACA is not applicable to anyone coming across the border today. Only illegal aliens who were brought to the US as minors before June 15, 2007, are eligible. However, the Republicans say that DACA created the opportunity for misinformation and confusion.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R) of Virginia, one of the “movers and shakers” in “Immigration Reform” efforts on Capitol Hill, wrote in a statement last week.
Word has gotten out around the world about President Obama’s lax immigration enforcement policies and it has encouraged more individuals to come to the United States illegally.
The actual numbers will blow your mind.
In the 10 years before 2012, according to a Department of Health and Human Services fact sheet, the federal government agency tasked with caring for unaccompanied minors who cross the border illegally handled an average of 7,000 to 8,000 cases a year. In fiscal year 2011, the number was 6,560.
Per an internal memo cited by The New York Times., in fiscal year 2013, the number jumped to 13,625. This fiscal year, ending Sept. 30, 2014, the feds estimate that the number may reach 80,000,
Obama proclaimed the situation a “humanitarian crisis” last Monday. Poverty and violence are driving the migration, according the him and his Administration. But wait, there’s more:
On top of all this, the Administration announced last Friday that at it was going to provide, lawyers (USING TAXPAYER MONEY) TO provide lawyers for the Mexican Munchkin Migration, in order to keep these children from being sent back to whence they came. Obama’s scheme calls for the issuing of $2 million (OF TAXPAYER MONEY) in grants to enroll about 100 lawyers and paralegals to represent these illegal aliens children, who have been purposefully shipped across our border.
According to a statement released by Attorney General Eric Holder,
We’re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society. How we treat those in need, particularly young people who must appear in immigration proceedings — many of whom are fleeing violence, persecution, abuse or trafficking — goes to the core of who we are as a nation.
Uh huh. So says the AG who refused to prosecute Black Panthers for intimidating people at a Cleveland Voting Precinct.
Let’s hear some common sense from a Conservative American Leader, shall we?
[Senator Ted] Cruz (R-TX) said of the skyrocketing number of children crossers, “When I was down at the border, Border Patrol agents were telling me with horror that roughly 10 percent of apprehended people were unaccompanied minors.”
He continued, “The people who are bringing men, women, and children in illegally are not pleasant, happy, placid coyotes. These are criminal cartels. These are ruthless, brutal, nasty criminals. The idea that you have parents handing their teenage daughter or son over to a global criminal cartel is a humanitarian crisis. Untold numbers of these teens are facing assault, are facing a life of hell being turned over to drug kingpins.”
“It is a direct consequence of the presidents illegal actions,” he said. “The parents think, ‘If I send my child [to the U.S.], my child will have amnesty.’ That’s what the president of the U.S. has said. It is the exact opposite of a humane approach to immigration or to securing our borders.”
Ultimately, Cruz said there are many areas where the left and right can find common ground.
“There is overwhelming bipartisan support outside of Washington that we need to finally secure our borders, enforce our laws, and stop the problem of illegal immigration,” he concluded. “But that’s not going to happen as long as the president is ordering Border Patrol officers not to enforce the law.”
There is something very sinister about the unexpected migration of tens of thousands of minors across our Southern Borders. This is a set-up for something bigger.
JUST HOW DID TENS OF THOUSAND OF CHILDREN JUST HAPPEN TO ARRIVE AT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER…ALL AT THE SAME TIME???!!!
WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS AND ARE THEY ARRIVING LATER?
AND, WILL THEY BE REGISTERED AS DEMOCRAT VOTERS?
I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children. We are all immigrants in this land, expect for American Indians, and they got here by crossing the Bering Straight. But there is a huge difference between immigrating here legally and sneaking in illegally, between assimilating into an existing culture, and insisting on replacing a country’s existing culture with that of the country you left.
I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish. But, it must be done the right way, and they must accept responsibility for their illegal entry, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.
A wide-open Southern Border is as big a threat to the sovereignty of the United States as anything that our enemies can throw at us right now. Mr. President, quit playing political games. The safety of America is at stake .
Until He Comes,
SECURE THE BORDER NOW.
