Skip to comments.Obama's two-year 'amnesty' for illegal immigrant minors sparks TWELVE-FOLD spike in numbers...

President Barack Obama is calling tens of thousands of illegal-immigrant children languishing in temporary U.S. holding pens an 'urgent humanitarian situation,' but Republicans are pointing the finger of blame squarely at the White House.
Obama instituted an immigration policy that the GOP says enticed tens of thousands of Central American children to cross America's southern border illegally without any parents to guide them.
More than 33,000 have been picked up in Texas alone since October. The U.S. border patrol says its forces are overwhelmed, and the courts are bracing for a flood of immigration cases from children held in temporary detention facilities designed to handle a fraction of the numbers. Sanitation problems are beginning to rear their ugly heads.
Obama rolled out a controversial Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012, allowing many illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as minors to escape deportation for two years. The White House gave them another two-year window last week.
As a result, say some GOP leaders, America's system for handling illegal immigration has been strained to the breaking point and is attracting hundreds of new illegal-immigrant children every day.
Compared to the year before Obama's policy took effect, twelve times as many kids are coming north illegally this year....

What’s preventing the US from dumping them over the border?
Who would have guessed that rewarding criminal behavior would encourage more criminal behavior (except for the Obama fans who want to destroy America and decent Americans who oppose Obama exactly because his policies will continue to cause these massive problems)?
Teenagers who will soon be voting and breeding anchor babies.
Send them back home, and the governors of these border states should activate their respective National Guards and deploy them to the border (I can dream, can’t I?).
(I can dream, cant I?)
It depends, are you an illegal or part of a minority protected class based solely on race, gender, or sex...if you are NOT part of any of those...just kindly keep paying your taxes and NO dreaming for you — Dreaming only applies to moochers, takers, and illegals under the current regime, back of the line....and feel guilty too.
The Republican “Leadership” saw this coming and did nothing about it. They are as much to blame as anybody, IMHO.
There’s no turning this ship around, at least in my lifetime, and Zero knows it. It is going to be a long slow crawl out of this hole, it anyone ever starts climbing that it.
“Whats preventing the US from dumping them over the border?”
Maybe now the low info crowd will finally understand the scale of the invasion we’re facing.
How could these young folks have made it from Central America?
Now that the fags down at immigration have begun busing illegal aliens into Arizona, I don’t think it’s going to be long before we hear the fags in Barry’s “media” cheering that Arizona has turned “blue” because of “demographics”. The November elections are going to get ugly with all of those illegals voting.
I don’t understand this whole business and wondered where these kids came from.
So, they’re crossing the borders by themselves in the hopes of amnesty? It’s one thing for teens to do this, maybe, but I’ve seen little kids - they can’t work anywhere.
How and where are they going to stay for 2 years? Plus, what was the purpose in sending a little kid - is there a deal to let in the parents later on? The parents must be expecting something for sending a 10 yr old, otherwise, why do it?
