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.
