Skip to comments.Influx of minors across Texas border driven by belief that they will be allowed to stay in U.S.

There is growing evidence that a surge of tens of thousands of Central American minors across the Mexican border into Texas is being driven in large part by the perception they will be allowed to stay under the Obama administrations immigration policies.
The number of minors apprehended in the past nine months who came from those three countries alone is 34,611 3.5 times more than in all of 2012. That was the year Obama announced that he would defer the deportations of young immigrants brought to the country illegally by their parents before 2007.
An internal memo from the U.S. Border Patrol last month estimated that, all told, 90,000 minors would be apprehended this year and 142,000 next year.
Republicans point to the crisis as evidence that Obamas policies have contributed to a widespread belief that young migrants will be allowed to remain in the country. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Thursday that her staff found evidence on a recent tour of a Border Patrol station in Nogales, Ariz., that the young migrants are being promised as much before leaving home.
Two of Feinsteins staff members visited the Nogales facility, where hundreds of children were sent for processing in recent weeks after the patrol stations in the Rio Grande Valley were overwhelmed.
After engaging with the children and U.S. personnel, my staff learned that many of the children were smuggled across the border after hearing radio ads promising they would not be deported, Feinstein said. My staff also heard that religious organizations are spreading the same message.
The main reason the migrants had crossed into the United States was to take advantage of the new U.S. law that grants a free pass or permit from the government, referred to in their home countries as permisos, the memo stated.

Need to dispel that belief...with extreme prejudice.
Given the proclivities of the current resident of the white hut, it’s very likely that they WILL be able to stay.
It’s for the children, dontchaknow...
The people should get together and rent buses and take these children to the gates of the white house and drop them off and tell the kids this is where your new daddy lives..
A soft invasion of Criminal Immigrants meant to Fundamentally Change America!
From what I understand, Mexico’s southern boarder is very difficult to cross over. These thousands of Central American kids were invited here by this administration.
If there are witnesses with direct / specific knowledge of our own government’s involvement in importing these children from other countries by providing them transportation now would be a good time to come forward. I have heard rumors that the did not get here on their own and that this is a political stunt for amnesty.
This is part of an invading army encouraged and effectively led by Obama. He intends to overwhelm and collapse the existing US civil society with Cloward Piven strategies.

GREAT IDEA... lol
Rofl...after Mooch serves her famous school lunch, I guess the death train will be going back to Central America by request?
The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government,
Sure seems so. ...not your average day of Cartel Gang members, Drug mules and Felons.
“It’s for the children” is the liberal battle cry. It means they’re coming after you and your liberty. Beware!
“Given the proclivities of the current resident of the white hut, its very likely that they WILL be able to stay.”
Living in NJ, I can tell you they probably will be staying; immigration laws don’t even exist here anymore. Practically speaking, without them we’d be a contracting society like Japan; our overlords have decided they’d rather just be a new country filled with Hispanics and Asians. Keeps the housing occupied and the classrooms full; the whites employed in government prefer this to unemployment.
Has anyone else noticed the number of Spanish-only commercials appearing on “regular” channels? We are not going to be a bilingual country (that never works, anyway); we are becoming a Spanish-speaking country.
Absolutely correct. Obama is a traitor to this nation.
“This is part of an invading army encouraged and effectively led by Obama. He intends to overwhelm and collapse the existing US civil society with Cloward Piven strategies.”
As much as I detest Obama, this started long before he ever showed up; both parties (the Republocrats) want it, and Americans won’t breed to make it unnecessary for those who make a living from a positive birth rate. There are areas in this country that will fight to take these mini-Aztecs in; they are the solution to the worst-off areas’ de-population woes.
It’s pretty disgusting that the Kenyan Marxist has lowered the border patrol agents to changing crappy diapers and warming baby formula. The Kenyan needs to be in jail.
The fix is IN. ABC news 8 from Dallas reported the story of the “migrants” being trucked around TX by federal agents.
This is orchestrated by the federal government with the specific intent to overload our system, and crash it. Resulting in, more government control.
And I thought those reports of government concentration camps were only to house the angry Anglos. Guess the type of guest can change/S
I looked up the southern border policy of Mexico. I knew several Central America countries were there, but; I had no idea of the terrain or it’s length. I thought it was flatter.
Yes he is a traitor if he is even a US citizen?
“Absolutely correct. Obama is a traitor to this nation.”
There are countless America-hating Leftists just like Obama teaching in our universities, running “think-tanks” and serving as community organizers.
The real traitors to this nation are the bought-and-paid-for Republicans in the House and Senate who have reneged on their obligations to defend this nation’s constitution and borders in return for wads of cash and the assurance of jobs as lobbyists if their tenures ever do end.
This “humanitarian refugee crisis” could be ended in a day or two with strong united conservative leadership.
That's true, but they have never gone so far as to bring in tens of thousands of women and children, move them all over the US at government expense, advertise in Central America through friendly newspapers and groups that if you make it to the US you can stay and make it clear that few will ever be deported, even offering them legal representation, again at government expense.

I thought that was how Maine and Minnesota got their Somalis(seriously).
I would bet my last dime the administration is responsible for the radio ads. Our tax dollars funded it. Just wish I could prove it. Anyone?
All part of the plan of Obama’s handlers to overwhelm the system and bring it to its knees. The Republican and Democratic lawmakers who have gone along with him on his odyssey of destruction are accessories to his crimes against the United States.
