Americans are accustomed to seeing reports of refugees swamping the borders of countries abroad - Syrians fleeing to Turkey, Sudanese streaming to South Sudan. But they arent accustomed to seeing such flights of humanity on their doorstep.
The escalating numbers of young children arriving alone at the U.S. border with Mexico, many of them younger than 13, prompted the president to declare a humanitarian crisis on Monday.
Refugee carries a specific definition in immigration law as someone who has a founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. Many of the kids would fit in the latter category, Young said.
Virginia Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the surge of children is an administration-made disaster and called for enforcement at the border and in the interior U.S.
Goodlatte said the administration is rubber stamping credible fear claims at the border. He has also said the administration's deferred deportations for DREAMers has encouraged an increase in border crossings.
Word has gotten out around the world about President Obamas lax immigration enforcement policies and it has encouraged more individuals to come to the United States illegally, many of whom are children, Goodlatte said in a statement. He said he would hold a hearing on the issue.

send them home or announce the parents will never get them back and see if the influx stops.
introduce piranha to the Rio Grande and Falcon lake
Enticing illegal immigration is a component of plan to destabilize the United States.
Yup. The only reason they’re sending children is for PR purposes with an eye on demanding benefits for the parents later on.
Obama wants to introduce as many non-white, non-European people into this county as possible. He wants to influence the demographics of this country for centuries to come. It will be his enduring legacy.
It is not a refugee crisis. They are illegal aliens and should be immediately deported. I used to care about children, but mine are grown up now.
The MX “border childred” are a staged scam, perpetrated by the bleeding hearts.
“he would hold a hearing on the issue.”
Then a Task Force.
Then a Blue-Ribbon Panel.
Then a non-partisan Commission.
Then an Investigation.
Then a Select United Nations racist crimes against Immigrant Children Trial.
...... How cute ...... all those little “Dreamers” are about to become our financial and social nightmares.
Well, Mr. republican neutered man, please keep talking about how King Obama won’t enforce the law blah blah blah. If King Obama doesn’t enforce the law and nothing is done about it, then obviously no one else cares about the law either. Maybe they can hold a hearing and talk about it to each other as members of Congress are propped up by their mistresses sitting behind them. Or maybe none of them have mistresses anymore. Maybe boy toys?
Perpetrated by amoral America-hating Uniparty subversives.
No. It is an invasion issue. And a parasite issue. These are like the offspring of the Cowbird, displaying the rightful children in the nest.
Need to give them box lunches, a few bottles of water, and send ‘em right back across the border on boxcars.
FAMILY VALUES so incredibly strong that they PRE-POSITION the anchor, lonely and without ANY parents..!
Piraña and land-mines.
Paid for by Boner and Cantor to pass amnesty.
It would be a great way to get the UN and others involved and critiquing our government, wouldn’t it?
Who is trafficking these children?
