Posted on 06/10/2014 9:23:14 AM PDT by Rusty0604
A White House official said the GOPs refusal to back the unpopular Democrat-drafted Senate immigration bill has caused the wave of young illegal immigrants that are sweeping over Americas border with Mexico.
The child migration is a symptom of the nations broken immigration system, the official said, and the responsibility for not fixing it lies at the feet of the U.S. Congress, the official said in a June 9 press call with reporters. The two White House officials on the call asked that they not be identified by name.
The administrations secrecy is important, because officials have been trying to portray the inflow as a rush of innocent children fleeing persecution, gangs and brutal fathers, not a flood of low-skilled illegals across a porous border and into a new legal sanctuary created by Obama.
However, a second White House official on the call admitted that many illegal immigrants come across the border as families.
We are also seeing large number of family units mostly mothers with young children, the official said. Theyre provided with food, theyre provided with water, for their journeys north to meet with relatives already living in the United States, the official added.
Passage of the Senates immigration bill is the presidents top legislative priority, said the first White House official.
If made law, it would double the annual inflow of low-wage guest workers and new immigrants to roughly 4 million per year for a decade. Thats roughly equal to the number of Americans who turn 18 each year.

These children didn’t walk a thousand miles and Mexico didn’t simply let them pass though unescorted.
Congress needs to ask some questions.
The GOP-E Leadership in the US House, (Boehner, Cantor, and Ryan), is always gullible to Obamas tricks.
Consequently, Boehner, Cantor and Ryan, have all pledged to ram through this unpopular Obama Amnesty Bill due to Obamas illegal decision to flood the USA with children from Mexico and Central America.
It is time to kick the GOP-E out of Congressional Leadership!
If the Chief Executive (who could not run a lemonade stand) would enforce our laws, this would not be happening. He, and only he, is the blame for this latest fiasco.
These “White House officials” are scum. You too Obama.
These are Mexico’s problem — they are passing through their territory to get here and yet we are told for years that Mexico’s border is so well policed.
Tell them to police it and feed the refugees themselves.
Sen. Jeff Flake, R-AZ; Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC; Sen. John McCain, R-AZ; Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL.
Yeah, they share some of the blame. Yay GOP-e!
`Bi-partisanship’ = American public gets a screwing.
>> It is time to kick the GOP-E out of Congressional Leadership!
Yesterday would be good. Today will do. Tomorrow is too late.
I got ten pesos that says the Mexican government is picking them up at the southern border and bussing over the northern border. Done and done.
And now Obama wants 2 Billion dollars to process these illegals. I bet the GOP can’t wait to give it to him to prove they are not racists.
Then we should escort them out of the US House for a TEA Party on the Lawn!
I got another 10 pesos that says we’re paying the Mexican government to do it.
The gopers are not concerned about controlling the borders either. It,s sickening.
“Our young citizens will have an even harder time finding employment”
Guess they could mow the yards or keep house for the illegals that have the good jobs.
Obama, his minions and their dhimmi gop-e may have outsmarted themselves here as well.
If this is a conscious strategy on the part of the WH and Gang of Eight, it looks likely to `backfire’: like trading four (4) Taliban field grade officers for one American `POW’.
Bam-bam was quick to take credit for that, until it started `resonating’ with the American public, then it became a hot potato. Now this childrens’ crusade has become the dhimmis’ fault. Every time Obama blows it, an administration hack gets his wings clipped.
So here he goes again ....
A local TV station in Texas recently issued a telling report. They revealed that information is being disseminated in Central America urging people to make the life-threatening trek north in pursuit of amnesty: “A mother and child told Channel 5 News that the message being disseminated in their country is, ‘go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away.’”
The New York Times reported last week that an illegal immigrant youth said: If you make it, they take you to a shelter and take care of you and let you have permission to stay When you appeal your case, if you say you want to study, they support you.
