New data shows the White House has painted a false picture of the Central American migration by hiding a huge spike in family units who are illegally crossing the Texas border.
The data, which was dumped by the U.S. border patrol late Friday afternoon, shows that inflow of youths and children traveling without parents has doubled since 2013, to 57,525 in the nine months up to July 2014.
But the number of migrants who cross the border in so-called family units has spiked five-fold to 55,420, according to the border patrols data, which came out amid a storm of news about the shoot-down of a Malaysian aircraft in Ukraine, delays in failed U.S. nuke talks with Iran, and on Hamas continued war against Israel.
In the Rio Grande area where most of the migrants are crossing the border, the number of so-called unaccompanied children was actually outnumbered by the inflow by adults, parents and children in family units, according to the data.
The much-faster growth in family units has been hidden by White House and agency officials, who have tried to portray the influx as a wave of children fleeing abuse and violence.
Top officials, such as Jeh Johnson, the secretary of Homeland Security, has explained the influx as a child migration, and justified the governments welcoming response as acting in the best interests of the children. That portrayal has been picked up and spread by Democratic legislators, reporters and bloggers such as Greg Sargent at The Washington Post and Rachel Lienesch at the Huffington Post to help mute the publics growing anger at the Democrats failure to guard the border.
However. that effort has largely failed. Most of the unaccompanied youths say theyre aged 14 to 17, and many are seeking jobs. Also, multiple polls shows the majority of Americans and near-majorities of Latin-Americans blame Obama for the breakdown. A July Gallup poll shows that the crisis has prompted Americans to identify it as the nations leading problem.
White House officials also touted the wave of so-called unaccompanied children, and downplayed the family units, because they wished to focus the medias attention on a supposed problem caused by a 2008 law, titled the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act.
White House officials say the law prevents them from repatriating Central Americans youths and children once theyre legally dubbed unaccompanied alien children. Officials also say the 2008 law forces them to settle the youths in the United States until judges decide if they can stay in the country.
The 2008 law was designed to allow severely-traumatized victims of forced trafficking such as teenage prostitutes held by violent pimps to apply for green cards in the United States.
In fact, the Central American youths are not being trafficked. Instead, many youths or their parents pay so-called coyotes to help them cross the border, and most are eventually handed over to their parents and relatives living in the United States, often illegally.
If the youths were not deemed to be protected by the 2008 law, other immigration laws would have allowed officials to repatriate them rapidly.
Many of the men, women and children who cross the border in family units are temporarily held until theyre transported to cities where they have relatives or friends.
Those resettlement efforts have sparked a growing wave of nationwide protests, and denunciations from governors and federal legislators. Officials have tried to hide the migrant transfers and locations to mute protests.
They planned it. This would be like FDR shipping Japanese soldiers into America. It is TREASON to aid a foreign invasion!
They didn’t just hide the fact, they lied about it too
Obvious solution to this mess: Congressional hearings. Maybe with Issa as Chairman.
this weekend on the history channel:
the great Normandy migration

Including gay couples and single moms in the count, no doubt.
Texas at least reports the migration. It’s much more prolific in the western states.
In some cases the populations migrating can equal the standing populations.
Too many people work indoors and never look outside.
When you see lots of Latinos fishing in the irrigation canals, you know they aren’t from the local area.
In the next 18 months anticipate a rise in home invasions in the SW US.
I already figured something like this. With Hussein, you can never go wrong assuming the worst.
And using alleyways as outhouses.
They’re lying about the per centage receiving political asylum and they are assisting the aliens in lying about circumstances in their home countries that caused them to claim political asylum in this country.
The per centage being deported is far lower than their official reports and the newcomers were coached in their home countries: as past news stories stated, almost every one arrived with facts on papers pinned to their clothing to prove a prima facie claim for asylum.
Similar to affordable health care (a difference being, there every GOP senator voted ‘Nay’), once again the Democrats and many of the ‘loyal opposition’ are jobbing Americans out-of-jobs.
Did you know that there many charges that could be brought against anyone who violated the Immigration and Nationality, not just civil but criminal, under Chapter 8 ‘Penalties’.
Only one of the many violations is aiding or allowing aliens with possible disease to enter the country without inspection and proper clearance. And it’s obvious that’s a problem and it’s not without the realm of possibility that US government employees were actively involved in this unfortunate, possible humanitarian disaster.
So yeah, this is just the latest scandal for this administration, if a British newspaper decides it will sell copy.
THE FACTS ARE THESE --- "impoverished" Central American families pay so-called coyotes thousands of dollars to get across the border......knowing they'll soon be in the money, riding the lucrative US gravy train....sucking off US taxpayers.
Many of the family units (new Democrat voters) are temporarily held then secretly transported to cities where they have relatives or friends.
The Obama govt has kept these resettlement efforts secrets in order to mute protests....claiming the border swarm are "children" escaping violence.
Now a growing wave of nationwide protests, and denunciations from governors and federal legislators has erupted.
Looks like the "Father of Transparency" has been exposed.
