    The Center for Immigration Studies has released a new report, "Welcoming Unaccompanied Alien Children to the United States", analyzing the Obama administration's persistent efforts to relocate the children of Central American illegal aliens to the United States. The report is online at http://cis.org/Welcoming-Unaccompanied-Alien-Children-to-the-United-States. When the illegal flow of mostly teen-age boys from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador across the border reached record levels in 2014, the administration at first tried to arrange for them to stay by presenting them as victims of trafficking. But for the immigration benefits of being trafficked to apply, there must be coercion and exploitation; this...

    Insanity. By now, you’re no doubt aware of the waves of “undocumented minors” that have been washing across the U.S. southern border. They arrive, they’re given stuffed animals by Glenn Beck & Ted Cruz, and then they’re…well…where do they go then? They certainly aren’t being deported. So just what happens to them after they’re given their complementary Steiff bear? According to the AP they go to…other illegals. The vast majority of immigrant children who arrive alone at the U.S. border are placed by the government with adults who are in the country illegally, federal data reviewed by The Associated Press...

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency is preparing for a record number of unaccompanied children, from birth to 17 years old, to flow over the Southwest border in the months ahead. In fact, it's already happening, CBP chief Gil Kerlikowske said in his written testimony for a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing on CBP's FY 2017 budget request. For the first four months of Fiscal Year 2016 (Oct. 1, 2015-Jan. 31, 2016), Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 20,000 unaccompanied children crossing the Southwest border, twice as many as the 10,000 apprehended during the same time period in FY...

    It appears that the recent execution-style murder of a Massachusetts man was committed by two Central American teens that came to the U.S. as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) under President Obama's open border free-for-all. Tens of thousands of illegal immigrant minors--mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras--have entered the country through the Mexican border since the influx began in the summer of 2014 and the administration has relocated them nationwide. News reports indicate that the 17-year-olds charged in the gruesome Massachusetts killing entered the U.S. recently as UAC's and both have ties to MS-13, according to authorities cited by various...

    The new surge of illegal immigrant youths has forced the federal government to look at an emergency plan to house them at six military bases at at least two federal worker centers, according to the administration. The Pentagon is beginning "site assessments" at bases as far north as North Dakota and Massachusetts.

This temporary increased shelter capacity is a prudent step needed to ensure ORR meets its statutory responsibility to provide shelter for...

    The number of children who are caught trying to slip across the U.S.-Mexico border alone and illegally has quietly surged again more than a year after President Obama referred to the problem as an "urgent humanitarian situation." While the world has been focused on Europe's migrant crisis, apprehensions of unaccompanied minors along America's own border have exploded: More than 10,000 undocumented children have been stopped in just the last two months, according to U.S. Border and Customs Protection. The 10,588 apprehensions are a 106 percent increase over the same Oct. 1 through Nov. 30 period from last year, when 5,129...

    The Department of Health and Human Services has notified Congress that November has seen a huge number of undocumented youths crossing into the United States, up 269 percent over last November. And it is warning that it is getting close to running out of beds to house the immigrants. Some 5,200 arrived in November, more than twice the 2014 surge. That year, 1,927 crossed over, and that was down from 3,320 in 2013. HHS' Office of Refugee Resettlement houses the youths with the Administration for Children and Families.

    The surge of illegal immigrant children continued unabated in November, pushing the Obama administration to announce emergency measures to try to handle a problem it thought it had solved earlier this year. Two months into the new fiscal year, the number of unaccompanied minors jumping the border and getting caught is at an all-time high. So far, the U.S. Border Patrol has picked up over 10,500 — more than twice the number at the same point last year. The number of families trying to cross also has surged, with more than 12,500 people caught — a 173 percent increase over...

    The hordes of illegal immigrant minors entering the U.S. are bringing serious diseases—including swine flu, dengue fever, possibly Ebola virus and tuberculosis—that present a danger to the American public as well as the Border Patrol agents forced to care for the kids, according to a U.S. Congressman who is also medical doctor. This has created a “severe and dangerous” crisis, says the Georgia lawmaker, Phil Gingrey. Most of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) are coming from Central America and they’re importing infectious diseases considered to be largely eradicated in this country. Additionally, many of the migrants lack basic vaccinations such...

    Drug-resistant head lice are very likely coming to a school near you, U.S. investigators warn. At least 25 states host lice populations that don't respond to common over-the-counter treatments, a new analysis reveals. Permethrin, part of the pyrethroid class of insecticides, has long been the go-to weapon against head lice, mosquitoes, bedbugs and other insects. But continued exposure to permethrin has caused a huge swath of the dreaded insects to develop genetic mutations that render such drugs useless. "It's a very classic resistance story. ... Head lice, which can't jump or fly, transmit by direct physical contact. They quickly infest...

    "We are the first group to collect lice samples from a large number of populations across the U.S.," said Dr. Kyong Yoon, a researcher at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, in a press release. "What we found was that 104 out of the 109 lice populations we tested had high levels of gene mutations, which have been linked to resistance to pyrethroids." Pyrethoids are a type of insecticide used for mosquitoes and other insects that contain permethrin, the active ingredient in over-the-counter lice treatment products. Yoon collected lice from 30 states, analyzing them for knock-down resistance, or kdr, mutations. Kdr...

    The renewed flood of illegal immigration children anticipated this year hasn’t materialized, as children are crossing at far lower rates than last year and even lower than 2013, according to new Border Patrol statistics that suggest some of the things the Obama administration did are helping. Thousands of children are still being caught, but it’s a slower and more regular pace than 2014’s wild spike, which saw 7,700 apprehended at the southwest border in April alone, and more than 10,000 each in May and June. By contrast, this April saw just 3,272 unaccompanied minors caught — a drop of 58...

Contrary to the narrative articulated by the Obama administration and promoted by major news organizations, the children did not enter the country entirely “unaccompanied.” How, when, and where the alien children crossed into the United States appears to have been determined by transnational criminal organizations who exercise control over much of the southern border, according to the leaked report first obtained by the Houston Chronicle.

    The sudden outbreak of measles across the United States raises questions about how the disease arrived in the country after it was eradicated here in 2000. A quick review of the U.S. State Department visa requirements for immigrant visas reveals that applicants must be vaccinated for measles prior to their approval. Measles vaccination is not required for tourist visas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nor is it required for any other disease. That leaves three possibilities. One is that a tourist present legally in the U.S. brought measles to the country while visiting. This is the...

    AS we were reminded last summer when thousands of unaccompanied children showed up on our southwestern border, the security and prosperity of Central America are inextricably linked with our own. The economies of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras remain bogged down as the rest of the Americas surge forward. Inadequate education, institutional corruption, rampant crime and a lack of investment are holding these countries back. Six million young Central Americans are to enter the labor force in the next decade. If opportunity isn’t there for them, the entire Western Hemisphere will feel the consequences.

    Complete Headline: The Obama Administration Is Now Boasting About How Many Illegal Immigrant Children It Resettled This Summer The Department of Health and Human Services is touting its handling of last summer’s massive influx of unaccompanied alien children in an end-of-year report, despite the fact that its own failures worsened the situation. Nearly 58,000 unaccompanied alien children arrived before the end of fiscal year 2014, almost as many as arrived in the past five years combined, according to the report from HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement. “ORR and its partners worked tirelessly throughout the summer influx, addressing emergent medical...

    Hypocrisy: Mexico's president tells ours that his country will supply any documents needed for illegal aliens to qualify under Barack Obama's executive amnesty. At the same time, Mexico deports more illegals than we do. In an Oval Office meeting with President Obama on Tuesday, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said that his administration "is ready to give (support) to the Mexican population living in the United States so that they can show the documentation that is necessary to prove that they have been in the United States prior to 2010" to meet the five-year requirement of Obama's amnesty plan and...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 12/2/2014 | Paul Bedard
    Despite the media’s gushing over support for President Obama’s executive order on illegal immigrants, a poll just published finds that the public is rejecting his move, with overwhelming majorities demanding that illegal children be barred from schools and illegal adults from jobs. A new Economist/YouGov poll said that the public opposes the president’s order, 45 percent to 38 percent supporting it. In fact, only a majority of Democrats support the president’s action. “The president’s plan for executive action on immigration clearly does not sit well with many Americans. Democrats support the president’s decision to use an executive order to delay...

    Documents obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch show that HHS paid the Baptist Children and Family Services (BCFS) $182,129,786 for the “basic shelter care” of 2,400 unaccompanied minors (UAC) over several months this year.

The charges for the remaining 1,200 UACs at Lackland AFB came out to a $64,928 cost per minor from May...

    Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is one of over 100 non-polio enteroviruses, according to the CDC. For most people infected, it causes flu-like symptoms, mild to severe. It spreads just like the common cold virus, through coughing, sneezing, handshakes, or touching a surface touched by someone with the infection. Over this past summer and fall, the United States, “has experienced a nationwide outbreak of enterovirus D68,” according to the CDC. For most infected persons, it’s just another cold. But “more severe infections can lead to hypoxia, meningitis, eye problems, heart involvement, and rarely paralysis.” This sudden surge in EV-D68 cases is perplexing...

    Republicans decry ‘border sabotage’ ahead of expected illegal immigration executive actionThe Obama administration quietly announced a program late last week to create a legal channel for thousands of Central American children to come to the U.S., a move designed to prevent a repeat of this summer’s illegal immigrant surge but which Republicans said amounted to “border sabotage.” Coupled with President Obama’s expected action in the next few weeks granting tentative legal status to illegal immigrants already in the U.S., the policy could open the door to illegal immigrants from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala petitioning to have their children still...

    (CNSNews.com) - The Obama administration announced on Friday a plan to create a new refugee/parole program for children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras whose parents are legal residents of the United States. “This program will allow certain parents who are lawfully present in the United States to request access to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program for their children still in one of these three countries,” the State Department said in a news release. The department added that “[c]hildren who are found ineligible for refugee admission but still at risk of harm may be considered for parole on a case-by-case...

    Washington will allow some children in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to apply for refugee status from their home countries, Vice President Joe Biden announced on Friday, in a bid to stem an exodus of undocumented migrants to the U.S. border through Mexico. The program only applies to children whose parents are legal residents of the United States. It is unclear how much impact the plan, which begins in December, would have on the migration problem, given a 4,000-person quota for refugee applications from all of Latin America. In a fact sheet, the State Department said there may be some...

    The “humanitarian crisis” concocted by President Obama to let tens of thousands of illegal immigrant minors stay in the U.S. has fueled a deadly respiratory virus epidemic that’s struck American kids across the country and killed at least nine. Virtually nonexistent in the U.S. before the recent influx of illegal alien minors, the lethal Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is associated with severe respiratory illness and is known to come from Central America. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from mid-August to the end of October state public health laboratories have confirmed a total of 1,105 people in...
