Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, an Obama Executive Order continues to do exactly what would be expected, lure tens of thousands of illegal alien children to attempt the deadly border crossing trek from Central America. Often they are being sent by their parents who pay drug cartels to “coyote” their children here, even though rape and molestation is common in the process.
Obama’s actions have created a humanitarian crisis of epic proportion on the southern border. It is believed by many to have been done by Obama on purpose to benefit the Democratic Party. Illegal aliens are more likley than legal aliens or citizens to vote Democrat, either before or after citizenship. In the last 9 months 60,000 children that we know of have made it to the the USA. Before Obama’s DACA it was about 6,500 a year. For more about DACA read http://aun-tv.com/how-obama-lured-the-children-of-central-america-daca/
The number of immigrants under 18 who were deported or turned away fell from 8,143 in 2008, the last year of the Bush administration, to 1,669 last year, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement data.
The lower deportations since Obama took office combined with the new Obama DACA carrot, that even if they get caught they likley can stay and become citizens, has created the tidal wave of children. In the long run it will likely accomplish its apparent goal of altering American voting patterns to favor the Democrats, but at what human cost?
Congressman Cuellar, a Democrat who appears more interested in children’s welfare than politics on this issue has said “It’s not just the heat that could kill them but there are other dangers. Officials at Lackland Air Force Base told us that one-third of young girls that come across – and they were just like little babies; 10, 11, 14 years of age. That about one third of them get raped and/or abused on the way here.”
As the Border Patrol organization has said:
“This is not a humanitarian crisis,” the National Association of Border Patrol Officers said. “It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes.”
Fox News has done an in-depth investigation on the border which includes a 22 minute video. We will provide a link to that here: 2014/07/14/night-time-on-border-endless-wave-illegal-immigrants-floods-rio-grande-valley/
Will this policy end? Obama believed that trading the 5 top ranked terrorists for the apparent deserter Bergdahl would make him (Obama) popular and help bury Obama’s VA Hospital scandal. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/06/02/toobin-turley-yep-obama-broke-the-law-in-bergdahl-deal/
When it proved unpopular Obama could not undo the deal, but he has undone the PR offensive. No more Rose Garden ceremonies took place, even though Bergdahl is now here. So if Obama thinks that allowing the humanitarian crisis and suffering to continue will hurt him in the short run too much, he may undo DACA, which will greatly reduce the suffering.
