HOUSTON, Texas--Thousands of illegal immigrants--most of whom are from Central America--continue to cross the U.S.-Mexico border each day, but there are many who never complete the dangerous journey north because they run out of money. The trip from Central America can be a life-threatening one, but rumors of "amnesty" have only caused more immigrants to make it to the U.S. at any cost.
Zack Taylor, Chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, told Breitbart Texas that smugglers typically charge hopeful foreigners hundreds of dollars to take them from their home countries to the U.S. Often, however, the immigrants run out of money along the way.
The Arizona Republic reported that due to this problem--which, it appears, is becoming increasingly common--migrants are "amassing" at the Rio Grande River's edge, just within sight of the U.S.
14-year-old Brayan Duban Soler Redando of Honduras reportedly ran out of money and couldn't pay a smuggler to take him across the river. Now, he is stuck in a shelter Reynosa, a city plagued with violence and cartels. Such shelters, just outside the U.S., "are packed these days with migrants planning to cross the river and enter the United States illegally," the Arizona Republic reported.
Beds are full and space is tight in Reynosa-based smuggling houses, as an increasing number of immigrants cannot afford to a pay a smuggler across the Rio Grande.
The Obama Administration vehemently insists that violence and poverty in the migrants' home countries is the cause of the border crisis....

Where the hell is the UN? What are THEY doing about this "humanitarian tragedy"?
Where are the gay and lesbian boycotts against these countries causing this "humanitarian tragedy"?
Why hasn't all aide to these countries causing this "humanitarian tragedy" been stopped?
Why haven't all of the assets of these countries causing this "humanitarian tragedy" been frozen?
We've got a "humanitarian tragedy" goin' on here and those governments are causing it! When are Barry and his 'RATS going to stop changing the crappy diapers of the invaders and DO SOMETHING?! Where are the blue helmeted UN clowns?
Obama obviously made a deal with the President of Mexico, because normally Mexico guards its southern border from illegals trying to cross. Instead, Mexico seems to have been helping to transport them north.
There's intense cruelty lurking just beneath the surface of Obama's benevolence.
Obama has conspired with foreign governments to violate the sovereignty of the US. He is a traitor, a textbook example in fact.

Its about to get worse. . . Entire villages are emptying out and coming from Central America through Mexico to the United States. Theyll be hitting in the next couple weeks. What you are seeing right now is the tip of the iceberg.
The Daily Caller reports, a leaked estimate by a top official in the Department of Homeland Security says the 12-month inflow will reach 90,000 by October, and then grow by another 142,000 in the next 12 months before October 2015. Thats over 230,000, nearly a quarter million that the Democrats hope to dump on US taxpayers. Soon, this number will have grown by millions.
The train that departs from Nicaragua and heads north to the United States. The train illegally brings an estimated 500,000 people per year to the United States.
The Marxist/Muslim is responsible for this...his Cloward-Piven scheme all going as planned.
Yes mexico is party to the conspiracy.
They aren’t “immigrants” until they swim across the Rio Grande and turn themselves in to the so called Border Patrol for a diaper change.
Why is it that Mexico has strict controls on their northern border but not on their southern?
Never forget that he has a lot of help from “our” (LOL) side of the aisle.
Indeed, but that would be the GOPe side, not the side of conservatives who are trying to save America from the planned Cloward Piven driven fate.
I’m expecting a massive rush, a human wave, of thousands or even tens of thousands coming all at once.
The ones they are sending over now are intended to keep the border patrol too busy to patrol the border so a human wave can’t be stopped.
Haven’t we read before that Mexico DOES maintain strict control over their southern border? So wouldn’t this mean they have lifted it? So they can get victory, Aztlan, and a chunk of our country a lot sooner? Just wondering.
ISIL/ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Red China and Russia will probably be sending their people, as well.
George Bush (and the GOPe and Bush-bots all) are as is equally responsible for failing to *establish* border control.
Bush had plenty of time, but he continued to avoid the problem ... and instead, blamed “vigilantes” as he attempted to place himself in the public light, as not being “meanspirited” after meeting with the Mexican government ... so he bashed our neighbors trying to protect their property along the border.
Bush, who would not permit *YOU* to be on his property, has no problem with illegal aliens being on *YOUR* property.
Bush, who would send off to war, the children of the “vigilantes” according to him, our neighbors along the southern border ... but then he would bash his “vigilantes” behind the backs of our neighbors’ children in our military and at war.
Bush had a duty to defend our borders but did not, even after the raw terrorism of Sept. 11, 2001.
Not only that, but he has yet to be on the USA side of the border issue.
What we hear as excuses from the REPUBLICANS / GOPe / Bush / Romney / McCain ... are as equally without substance as the IRS claims about “lost hard drives.”
Why is it that Mexico has strict controls on their northern border but not on their southern?
Going which way, into or out of Mexico? I can see it is free flowing going out of Mexico to the US
unaccompanied minors crossing the border from Mexico, are not making it there without bribe money and the parents pay the bribe, pay for the smuggler,so when their kids reach Texas,detain,ice locates and ships child to family..Family skips court dates.. Ice will never follow up and child stays with family ..is how and why they come..Better question would be why is their no outrage for what these parents are doing to their kids ??Let us turn our child over to a stranger and see how quick to jail we shall go..
If I was governor of Texas I guarantee I’d declare a state of emergency and put the National Guard on the border to stop it and dare the jug eared clown to try and stop me.
I take it as a given terrorist will be poring in.
Bush didn’t encourage this kind of invasion.
Neither has any other American president.
I agree that Bush should have done more since he came from a governors mansion just 6 hours north of the border, but come on, no one has aided and abetted like baraq.
In the desire to help humanity lies too often just below the surface the desire to control it.
I am beginning to think your TX politicians are just like our CA marxists now. There is no safe place anymore...
You ask questions no one will answer because they’re afraid of the truth. This is squarely the fault of the corrupt kelptocrat elites of Mexico and Central and South America who do nothing for their own people, pocket every bit of foreign aide we give them, steal everything in sight and tell their poor to blame America. This is nothing more than a monstrous extortion scheme by these bastards to get more foreign aid. “Give us more money gringo or we will sent more of them’’. I hate Mexicans, I hate Mexico and the other Latin American countries who are exporting their poor here. They’re destroying our beautiful country, killing innocent Americans everyday, they hate us and the ever arrogant beggars they are demand always that we give them more. No other generation of American in times past would have tolerated this for a minute. Why are we?
>>Beds are full and space is tight in Reynosa-based smuggling houses, as an increasing number of immigrants cannot afford to a pay a smuggler across the Rio Grande. <<
If they are turning themselves in why pay someone to sneak you across? Just swim across and let everyone see you doing it so you will be caught and fed and housed and bussed onto your destination?
Obama is a lowly, sissy-coward for using the lives of innocent children to ram through his Amnesty for Illegal Alien Invaders from Mexico Law.
As the truth comes out of Mexico, I predict that there will be many gory incidents of despicable brutality by Drug Gang Members as these innocent children traveled through the Drug Lord Gangs various territories.
At that time, Obama, Holder and Kerry should stand trial in the World Court for Human Trafficking of Children across International Borders.
ROTFL! I get carpet burns laughing every time that picture pops up! Thx.
That’s a lot of dem voters that will turn Texas blue.
Obama scripted this and will fix it; all for the small price of amnesty.
Mexico hopes to win amnesty for Mexican Nationals in the USA, that is their price to allow the surge north.
This is the epitome of “The Mouse That Roared” movie!! All the OTM countries that are sending these diseased people to storm the border are now getting MILLIONS and MILLIONS of dollars to supposedly build Clubs so the kids will have FUN in their own country!!!!
I suspect that many of them are prisoners, locked in by the smugglers, and won't be released unless payment is made.
coercive control of the storyline seems to be a habit with this administration. Restricting the press from the border isn't going to work, tho.
Leave it to the Left - they amass large numbers of votes in basements for use in elections and they do the same with children to push amnesty.
“Bush had a duty to defend our borders but did not, even after the raw terrorism of Sept. 11, 2001.”
As much as I respect GW, that is absolutely true.
After 9/11, we should have taken measures to stop importing oil from terrorist-sponsoring states (there’s plenty here in Canada, President Obama! i.e., the Keystone pipeline which was just approved up here), and we should have clamped down immediately on illegal immigration. With such a fluid border, it would be so easy for terrorists to cross into the U.S. and do serious harm.
Clearly, there is something going on behind the scenes, and I’m not normally a conspiracy theorist. I just don’t get it.
Some trickster should paint “Arbeit Macht Frei” on those trains. Although I doubt the travelers would get the irony.
See post 8
Carter was impotent when Fidel Castro sent him as a gift of more than 100,000 Cubans, some of them common criminals taken from Cuban jails and patients that were interned in mental hospitals.
As Spanish philosopher, Jorge Santayana said: Those who ignore history are damned to repeat it, or as another saying affirms, the man is the only animal that trip over the same stone three times.
Obama have broken Carters record as the worst American president in his unrelenting quest to destroy U.S. At the sudden invasion of over 100,000 Mexican and Central Americans, including criminal Maras salvatruchas gang members, and more than half of immigrant wave, children, Obama responded to our southern neighborsextortion awarding their corrupt governments more than $250 million.
Naturally they will take the ransom money and then send another wave of illegal immigrants to add to the more than 20 million (real numbers) already living in U.S. making a mockery of our laws and sovereignty.
For Obama the Constitution is an obsolete piece of wet paper, for him all is politics, the end justifies the means, those illegal immigrants are the core and future of the Democratic party, regardless that it is at the cost of making of U.S. another third world banana republic.
Probably. Money sent back to mexico by their citizens in the US is probably the country’s largest source of income. Add to that the drug trade...
Ask yourself why thousands of people from Central America can make that long journey across Mexico but few of them try the short journey into the three relatively functional Central American countries-- Belize, Costa Rica and Panama.
The answer is simple: none of these three have open border policies.
Just as the education efforts are for educators, the UN is for diplomats.
