We read daily about the “border surge,” thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens crossing the border and overwhelming the Border Patrol’s ability to deal with them. In addition to the adults crossing illegally we’re now being swarmed with so-called “unaccompanied minors” whose parents have sent their young children into the US unaccompanied in the hopes them taking part in Obama’s amnesty program.
One of the questions that needs to be asked over and over again, because no administration official wants to give a straight answer, is “where are these people going?”
The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article.
A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States.
The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States.
“Temporary permits.” Any bets on how many of those temporary permits will ever be revoked or not turned into permanent permits? We didn’t think so.
This is nothing more than a con game being run by the Obama administration to not just overwhelm the system, but to locate the illegal aliens all over the US so that tracking them becomes, for all intents and purposes, impossible. In fact, many of the 240,000 illegal aliens noted above are young single mothers with children who are taken by US authorities, at taxpayer expense, to where ever their ultimate US destination might be. Exactly none of them are turned around and sent back to their home countries.
Obama’s invited illegal aliens of today have little education and typically no marketable skills. That means the people who are overwhelming the border today will be overwhelming our welfare system tomorrow. Here’s an honest comment from David Jennings, head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement in southern California. It says everything you need to know about the US policy that is being carried out by the Obama administration.
“When you have a noncriminal [border-crossing ] mother, they are going to be released. The most humane way to deal with this is to find out where they are going and get them there,” he said at a town meeting held in Murrieta, Calif., according to the New York Times.
Murrieta, CA happens to be the current hotbed of protest over the resettlement of illegal aliens and the Obama administration is taking positive action as a result.
We’re not expecting to see this mess get unraveled any time soon. Or, really, any time at all.
