4/6/15, "Illegal immigrant children surge across border at highest rate since last summer’s peak," Washington Times, Stephen Dinan
"The second wave of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children has begun, with more than 3,000 of them surging across the Mexican border into the U.S. last month — the highest rate since the peak of last summer’s crisis and a warning that another rough season could be ahead.
Immigration officials warned that they expected another surge as the weather improved. Although the numbers are down some 40 percent compared with last year’s frenetic pace that sparked a political crisis for the Obama administration, fiscal year 2015 is shaping up to mark the second-biggest surge on record."...
[Ed. note: To the Washington Times: What "political crisis" for the Obama administration? The only "political crisis" sparked in part by the 2014 invasion was that Eric Cantor was voted out.]
(continuing): "Authorities report having captured 15,647 children traveling without parents who tried to jump the border in the first six months of the fiscal year. Through this point in 2014, they had apprehended 28,579.
Just as worrisome is the rate of whole families — usually mothers with young children — who are crossing. So far this fiscal year, authorities have captured 13,911 “family units,” down 30 percent from last year.
“These statistics show that the surge of illegal arrivals from Central America was never really over,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies.
She said the Obama administration and Congress have not taken steps to end the “pull factors.”
Among those is the policy that requires children from Central America to be released into the U.S. rather than quickly returned to their home countries. Once released, those children usually fail to appear for deportation proceedings.
The Congressional Research Service told Congress in late March that 62 percent of the children failed to show up for their cases before immigration judges from July through February. All of them were ordered deported, but the workload of officials made deportation unlikely in most cases."...
Comment: Not a single politician will stand up on our behalf and scream that war has been declared on the American people by its government. It can't be defined any other way. When you have no southern border you're not a country. US citizens are slaves now. We're no different than slaves of slave states of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala because we have no voice. Anyone can do anything it wants to us. They're all cheering each other for "crushing" us with filth and disease.
