Illegal immigrants under the age of 18, including unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors, will likely cost taxpayers $2 billion next year, according to Reuters. With the Obama administration already grappling with a veritable onslaught of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border into the United State, the flow is only expected to grow. Reuters reports that administration officials are estimating that the number of these illegal immigrant minors are likely to double in 2015 to nearly 130,000, causing an increase in the cost to taxpayers from $868 million to $2 billion. In March HHS estimated that 60,000 unaccompanied minors would be caught trying to cross the border this year. In FY 2011 a vastly few 6,560 unaccompanied minors were caught attempting to cross the border. Many have pointed to the poverty and violence in Mexico and Central America as an impetus for these minors to see a better live northward to the United States. Customs and Border Protection commissioner Gil Kerlikowske admitted at a House appropriations subcommittee hearing in April, however, that Obama administration policies have also been a factor in the increase of illegal youths crossing the border unaccompanied.

It’s time for the American government to grow a pair and start fining the hell out of the Mexican government for allowing their sewer to be used as a staging area for illegal invaders sneaking into America. Of course, we’ve still got armed drones that aren’t being used.
why don’t they just arrest the lot as incorrigibles ???
if an American child ran away fromn home they wouldn’t be rewarded..
they would be sent to reform school and their parents could lose their parental rights...
why are these children treated like privileged victims ???
why are they not sent back across the border right away ???
why are they allowed to stay and put up at our military bases ???
we have homeless vets ....
are they given quarters and food and free medical on military bases ???
what about the wives and children of soldiers who have died in Iraq/Afghanistan...
or the families of people killed on our roads by illegal aliens...
where’s the help for them ???
Illegal immigrants under the age of 18
meaning they could be 17, or 16, or even 15...hardly helpless children who cant fend for themselves..
60,000 children sounds like there were multitudes of illegal toddlers crawling across the border...
crying and scared and wanting their Mommies...
Hispanic Trayvons...sweet little innocents...
No instead these are for the most part practiced thieves and liars, criminals...
and should be treated as such...
even a 12 year old can kill another child..
They have to be sent back along with every other illegal.
This is all part of soetoro and co. Plot to "fundamentally transform America" from a Constitutional Republic run by White, Heterosexual,Christian Males into a socialist utopla run by people of color that is welcoming to sexual minorities.
these are the people who in a few years will be the Marxists’ brown shirts.
Spank them and send them home.
Dang we could have bought the Clippers for that
Send the bill to the bishops.
This isn’t a problem to that half of the population that doesn’t pay any taxes. This invasion will just add to their numbers to help them elect more communists.
The high cost of cheap labor.
What is to stop the state of Texas from lining officers on these crossing routes ahead of the Border Patrol, but unlike the BP, refusing to take those attempting into custody, to be released, but instead keeping them out and in Mexico, regardless of what supplies they may have with them. Let MEXICO pick them up and detain them. DO NOT LET THEM INTO TEXAS.
Sorry, nope. Don’t want them here. We have enough. I have no sympathy left in me. Us Americans are hurting and have a burden on our shoulders that the 3rd world throngs just seem to add more and more weight to without any regard for anything but themselves. Parasites. We don’t need competition for jobs, housing, health care, benefits, schooling. Our own children will suffer. No more American kids getting the short end of the stick. Let’s take care of our OWN (the people who pay your wages) you dirtbag politicians!
It seems that all of this chaos is part of the “Cloward-Piven” strategy to destroy our country.
You are thinking like an American. obama is not an American.
