I haven’t written much about this, lately, but, I’ll assume people are at least vaguely familiar ….
Team Zero decided to encourage minors to illegally enter the US.
Among the policies that allegedly are creating a magnet for illegal immigrants is what’s known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The unilateral policy in 2012 allowed some illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to defer deportation — among other criteria, they must have come to the U.S. before they were 16 years old, be younger than 31 on June 15, 2012, and have been in the country since at least June 15, 2007, and have no criminal history.
The administration extended that program earlier this month, allowing the immigrants to apply for protection from deportation for another two years.
So, what has been the result of this policy shift?
The Christian Science Monitor reports that, “During the decade preceding fiscal year 2012, the federal government agency tasked with caring for unaccompanied minors who cross the border illegally dealt with an average of 7,000 to 8,000 cases a year… In fiscal year 2011, the number was 6,560. The following year, however, the number jumped to 13,625. This fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30, 2014, federal officials are estimating that the number could be 80,000, according to an internal memo cited by The New York Times.”
Suddenly, we have a crisis of humanitarian proportions. No one is set up to adequately care for a 10 fold increase in illegal immigrant children.
Lanza had crossed the border form Mexico five days earlier along with his wife and three children. They had been in a cell ever since waiting for the Border Patrol to process them. But with groups of 80 to 90 people asking border agents to arrest them everyday, the system has been overwhelmed. There is just no place to house everyone until their case can be adjudicated so the Border Patrol is simply letting them go with a promise that they voluntarily report to immigration officials weeks later.
But, that’s just one instance, in others …..
Last week Arizona Governor Jan Brewer sent a letter to President Obama demanding inhumane drop offs of illegal immigrant women and children in 100 degree temperatures be stopped. That request was ignored and the feds have no plans to stop dumping hundreds of illegal immigrants at bus stops with a court date, hoping someday they show up again for their immigration hearing. More from CBS 5 AZ:
Andrew Wilder told CBS 5 News that reports claiming no more buses would arrive in Phoenix are inaccurate.
Wilder also confirmed that unaccompanied children crossing into the U.S. in Texas were making their way to southern Arizona, and the first shipment was expected to arrive Friday.
An immigration official told CBS 5 News that 195 unaccompanied children a day are crossing the border into the U.S., and if left unchecked more than 142,000 of them would cross within the next year.
Wilder said he participated in a call with federal agencies including DHS, HHS, ICE, Border Patrol and FEMA about the transportation of immigrants into Arizona from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.
“The federal government has no plans to terminate this operation any time in the immediate future,” Wilder said.
“The governor is troubled about this new information today,” Wilder said. “It is absolutely unconscionable this is continuing.”
But despite the feds’ response to Brewer’s original request, she isn’t backing down.
“Not only does the federal government have no plan to stop this disgraceful policy, it also has no plan to deal with the endless waves of illegal aliens once they are released here. If the Obama administration put half the effort into securing our border as it has invested to institute this operation, our state and nation would not be facing this situation. This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains unsecure – now apparently intentionally – while this operation continues full-steam ahead is deplorable,” Brewer said in a statement. “I have reached out to Federal Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson for answers. Meanwhile, I reiterate my call on President Obama to secure our southern border and terminate this operation immediately.”
What the hell? But, wait!!!! There’s more!!!!
In the latest policy announcement, the administration is now seeking young lawyers to help provide legal assistance to children in immigration proceedings. Officials say about 100 lawyers and paralegals will be enrolled as members of AmeriCorps in a new division called “justice AmeriCorps.” It’s a partnership between the Justice Department and the agency that administers AmeriCorps, the Corporation for National and Community Service.
Further, the White House is seeking an additional $1.4 billion to handle the wave of unaccompanied children making the trek to the U.S., largely from Central America.
I wonder …. what happens to young women and children dropped of in the streets of a big city? But, then, we know team Zero doesn’t give to shakes about the welfare of American citizens, much less a bunch of illegals they’ve encouraged to come here.
Human trafficking made easy by team Zero.
Zero’s flaunting of US law has caused him to commit many impeachable offenses. I believe the House should start the impeachment proceedings. They should and can based solely on this madness, but, I think it would be better to use the release of the Taliban leadership debacle. Put it out there for all the world to see. Put the pressure on the Dems. Force them to choose between being good Americans and doing their sworn duty, or being Dem. People need to stand up and be counted.
