President Barack Obama’s dismissal and violation of U.S. immigration laws has created a refugee crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Yesterday, Breitbart.com released leaked images of illegal immigrants warehoused in overcrowded conditions in Texas. Most of them are unaccompanied children — including girls under the age of 12 — who have crossed from Central America, through Mexico’s drug cartel-controlled territories and into Texas.
U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement is being overwhelmed, and this falls at Obama’s feet because of his decision to halt deportations of young adult illegals. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program allows immigrants who arrive prior to age 16 to remain in the U.S. This includes anyone 30 or younger on June 15, 2012. These so-called “Dreamers” are being approved at a rate of 96 percent of all immigrants who apply.
Department of Homeland Security announced yesterday the program — which was to have lasted two years — was being renewed. This will allow 560,000 young adult and children illegals to remain in the U.S. with no fear of deportation.
The prospect of gaining legal status through this program has caused an influx of young illegals into the U.S. Of course, once those children and young adults achieve even a quasi-legal status, they will be able to bring family members across the border with them.
So far, Obama’s “fix” for the Texas disaster has been to ship masses of the illegals to other sectors in California and bus stations in Arizona where they are either sent away with “orders” to appear for a hearing at a future date, or they are just dumped at bus stations.
