Do you remember when unaccompanied minors started showing up at our Southern Border, being dumped there by “coyotes” from countries all over Latin America?
I euphemistically dubbed the activity “The Mexican Munchkin Migration”.
They were soon found to be carrying infectious diseases, such as measles and like, due to the poor living conditions in their home nations.
President Barack Hussein Obama allowed them in, spiriting them away to military bases all over the country, where they were kept isolated from both Reporters and Congressmen and women, alike.
Have you ever wondered what happened to them?
MRCTV.org has the story…
Anyone remember when Jeh Johnson vowed that our borders weren’t open to illegal immigration, or when President Obama promised that anyone who recently crossed into the U.S. from Mexico wouldn’t be allowed to stay?
The lie detector test determined: those were lies.
According to recently released data reviewed by MRCTV, the Department of Homeland released another 52,147 illegal alien kids into the United States in fiscal year 2016, averaging about 149 per day. Processed as “refugees,” these children are in many cases sent to a family member who’s also here illegally.
A total of 5,203 kids were released in September alone, based on the numbers ORR released in August.
Not only is the year-end number shocking in its size alone, it’s also nearly double the number of kids the administration released in FY2015, when 27,840 unaccompanied minors were sent to sponsors in the United States.
FY2016’s total was also just shy of the 53,515 kids released in FY2014, after a massive surge of unaccompanied minors flooded the Southwest U.S. border and quickly overwhelmed a shocked border patrol.
In total, the Office of Refugee Resettlement reports it released 133,502 unaccompanied children into the United States between FY2014 and FY2016, an average of about 122 children per day.
Based on 2015-16 enrollment data, the number of illegal alien kids sent to live in the United States in the last three years would fill up 240 Washington, D.C. public middle schools.
States with the highest influx of unaccompanied children were California, Florida, New York, Maryland, Texas and Virginia. Texas alone has received 17,231 unaccompanied minors sent courtesy of the federal government over the past three years, while California came in a close second at 16,841.
President Obama’s home state of Hawaii, however, has only received 14 kids in that time frame.
While ORR has yet to publish the demographic breakdown of those children released into the U.S. during FY2016, the agency does state on its website that of those released in FY2015, 68 percent were male. Additionally, 68 percent claimed to be between the ages of 15 and 17. Less than one in five children were under the age of 12.
MRCTV reported Thursday that of those children released with a notice to appear before an immigration judge, more than a third don’t show up to court for their final hearing. Additionally, the administration admitted earlier this year that less than four percent of all children sent to sponsors in the United States have been returned home.
To quote “The Church Lady”,
Now…isn’t THAT special?
Last April, the Daily Caller reported that
In testimony before Congress Tuesday, a Maryland sheriff said amnesty for minors has led to increased gang crime and warned that without a secure border every county will be a “border county.”
“Open borders, reckless sanctuary policies, and failure to enforce our immigration laws have greatly impacted public safety and national security throughout every jurisdiction of this country. Every single day, more Americans are becoming victims of senseless crimes, being injured and killed by criminal aliens, many are transnational gang members,” said Sheriff Charles Jenkins of Frederick County, Md.
Frederick County is about 40 miles from Washington, D.C. Jenkins said that his cooperation with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) through the Department of Homeland Security’s 287(g) has helped rid his county of many illegal aliens.
“We have very effectively built a wall around Frederick County, given the fact that most surrounding jurisdictions do nothing or very little to cooperate with ICE,” Jenkins testified before the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security.
287(g) is a program that allows local police organizations to enforce federal immigration laws, though Jenkins claims that the Obama administration has gutted this program.
The sheriff said, “Since 2008, this Administration has weakened immigration enforcement by dismissing deportation cases, rescinding 287g agreements, encouraging sanctuary policies, and watering down detainer policies.”
“Case by case amnesty, back door amnesty, DACA programs, and the Dream Act were pushed through by executive order,” Jenkins said. He added, “In effect, criminal aliens that should have been deported have been allowed to remain and commit more serious crimes becoming violent offenders.”
Despite his efforts with ICE to deport illegal immigrants in his county, he has still experienced an increase in the presence of international Latin gangs such as MS-13 and 18th Street.
“The criminal alien gang numbers are growing, and the serious crimes being committed are increasing,” he testified. “There is also a nexus between the deferred action on unaccompanied minors and the increases we are seeing in gang crimes.”
Both MS-13 and 18th Street are recruiting in schools in his county and at one high school the two alien gangs break out into fights frequently. In 2015, 64 percent of the criminal alien gang members his sheriff’s department encountered entered the U.S as unaccompanied minors.
“Now they are adults committing serious felonies,” Jenkins said. In 2014, 8 illegal aliens were charged with the rape of girls aged 5 to 14, two of whom were impregnated.
The sheriff warned, “It is my belief that if this Congress and the next President do not take action to close and secure the border with Mexico and simply enforce the federal immigration laws that exist, every county in America will become a border county.”
America’s State, County, and Municipal Law Enforcement Officials are locked in a daily struggle to keep Americans safe from those who have no legal right to be here in the first place.
Concerning the MS-13 and 18th Street Gangs, Trump’s Campaign Platform states that, as President, he will
Cooperate with local gang task forces. ICE officers should accompany local police departments conducting raids of violent street gangs like MS-13 and the 18th street gang, which have terrorized the country. All illegal aliens in gangs should be apprehended and deported. Again, quoting Chris Crane: “ICE Officers and Agents are forced to apply the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Directive, not to children in schools, but to adult inmates in jails. If an illegal-alien inmate simply claims eligibility, ICE is forced to release the alien back into the community. This includes serious criminals who have committed felonies, who have assaulted officers, and who prey on children…ICE officers should be required to place detainers on every illegal alien they encounter in jails and prisons, since these aliens not only violated immigration laws, but then went on to engage in activities that led to their arrest by police; ICE officers should be required to issue Notices to Appear to all illegal aliens with criminal convictions, DUI convictions, or a gang affiliation; ICE should be working with any state or local drug or gang task force that asks for such assistance.”
Believe or not, a legendary Democrat Leader agreed with Trump on what should be done with those who have broken our laws by entering our Sovereign Nation illegally.
The last bipartisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform happened during President ill “Bubba” Clinton’s tenure. Bubba appointed former congresswoman and Democratic icon Barbara Jordan as its chair. Jordan came from humble beginnings to become a lawyer and the first Southern black woman elected to the House of Representatives. A DEMOCRAT, she was a leader in the civil rights movement, a professor of ethics, a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and a world-class orator (two of her speeches are considered among the greatest of the 20th century). Her appointment gave the commission instant credibility. According to Jordan, she believed her responsibility as the head of the commission was to restore credibility to the U.S. immigration system. On the issue of illegal immigration, Jordan was very clear and succinct:
Unlawful immigration is unacceptable. Those who should not be here will be required to leave.
Liberals, on both sides of the Political Aisle, have continuously masked their true intentions for the political usefulness, in granting amnesty to illegal aliens, by swathing it in the noble rhetoric of “Civil Rights” and “Social Justice”.
In reality, is the fact that these Professional Politicians could care less about the well-being of illegal aliens. They are simply recruiting new Democrat Voters.
Please indulge me by allowing me the opportunity to wrap up today’s blog with an answer I gave on May 19. 2010, to “Benito”, who submitted a rather lengthy comment filled with this same camouflage of noble intentions:
Benito, I approved your comment to ask you a few questions. First, you write very well. Next, a few questions. What part of the word “illegal” do you not understand? What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, you are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens. You are no better than someone who breaks into someone’s home, does their dishes, cuts their yard, cleans their house, and then helps themselves to their food and drives their car without asking. This is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given. And with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way. Illegal immigration reminds me of the amorous boyfriend who wants everything a young woman will give him, but will leave her at the first mention of marriage. I wish you no ill, amigo, but understand this: This is not a civil rights issue. Illegals do not have the same rights as American Citizens. With our rights, come the responsibilities of being an American citizen. The Mexican flag, by protocol, will always be flown in a subordinate position to the American Flag in this country. And, the American Dialect of the English language is the language spoken in this country.
I understand that people want a better life for themselves and their children. We are all immigrants in this land, except 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.
During his Campaign Address, delivered a little over a month ago on Illegal Immigration, in Phoenix, Arizona, Trump reiterated the promise he has made to send back to Mexico all of those who have illegally entered into our Sovereign Nation and to make Mexico pay for a “beautiful” wall to keep them from breaking our laws again.
The thousands who were in attendance last night applauded wildly.
Average Americans remain concerned about Illegal Immigration.
So, let’s take this one step at a time. Build the Wall. Secure our borders. Enforce the anti-illegal immigration laws. And if the Federal Government won’t, the states, like Arizona, will have to pass their own laws. America became a great nation because it is a melting pot of American-born and legally-immigrated citizens with a shared allegiance, not a multi-cultural United Nations with everyone loyal to their home country.
As the diseases which the Mexican Munchkin Migration brought in with them and the growth of Latino Gangs have warned us, 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. All of OUR SERVANTS, up on Capitol HIll, need to quit playing political games. The safety of America is at stake .
Until He Comes,
