President Obama can say he isn’t going to grant amnesty to the hundreds of thousands of illegal alien children flooding over the border with their families, but he’s lying. Surprise, surprise.
They are currently being disbursed all over the country and will be put into the foster care system – or a parallel system – in order to lose them in the heartland.
The immigration courts currently have about a three year backlog, and these illegal alien children are simply being given a summons to appear in 30 days. Guess what? They don’t show up and nobody is going to track them down.
In a couple of years, they will be “established” in the US and will petition for one form of amnesty or another. And they’ll likely get it.
Have you noticed, in the last week, the major media is running with anything they can find on any other story? They don’t want to report on the illegal flood coming across the southern border because, as it turns out, those illegal alien children just aren’t as heartwarming as the President thought they’d be, and they’re not helping his – and John Boehner’s – agenda to get amnesty passed this summer.
How bad is the news on “immigration reform?” It’s this bad.
When this story first broke at Breitbart Texas, the media jumped all over it. At first, it was obvious the media planned to exploit the story of 50-plus thousand unaccompanied Central American illegal alien children crossing our border as a way to pressure the GOP into caving on amnesty. A new poll from Economist/YouGov shows how badly that plan backfired — even among Hispanics.
Rather than convince the American people that passing a mass amnesty is what’s needed, the burst of border coverage earlier this month convinced 77% of the American people that the kids need to be sent back home. A full 42% want the kids sent back immediately regardless of what’s happening in their home countries…
Only 11% want what Obama, Democrats, and the media want — which is amnesty for everyone.
You’re probably saying, “But Curmudgeon, Speaker Boehner and the Republican establishment say we have to have amnesty because Hispanics will never vote Republican if they don’t get it!” OK, you’re probably not asking that, but we’ll answer it anyway.
The numbers are not all that different among Hispanics. Only 22% want to give the children amnesty. A full 64% [of Hispanics]want the children deported.
Where’s the Republican leadership on all of this?
Boehner told donors at a Las Vegas fundraiser in March that he was “hellbent on getting this done this year.” After he met with President Barack Obama at the White House in February, Boehner said that he agreed with Obama on immigration during the meeting.
