Despite rhetoric to the contrary by the likes of Barack Obama and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, the evidence shows that there is not, in fact, a legitimate effort to deport the huge number of unaccompanied children who have illegally crossed into the U.S. from their home countries.
Reports indicate that many families believe that foreign kids, upon setting foot on American soil, will be immune to applicable immigration laws. According to a DHS report first published by Breitbart, that contention is not without some validity.
Of the Central American children who entered the U.S. illegally during 2013, an incredible 99.9 percent are still here.
Despite literature instructing illegals to claim that violence or joblessness in their home countries is the impetus for their illegal journey, the department candidly asserts that the virtually nonexistent threat of deportation is likely a common motivation for these young invaders.
As for the response from the many countries from which these children arrive, there is generally none. The DHS report admitted as much, noting that nations sending illegals to America generally receive an enticing incentive – in the form of U.S. currency – to defend the status quo.
While family reunification is often given as a reason to support some level of amnesty, the report further reveals that this aspect of the problem is also rife with fraud. According to its findings, sponsors in America are appearing multiple times to collect minors from U.S. officials.
The lack of documentation inherent in illegal immigration is an obvious impediment to authorities attempting to determine where and with whom these unaccompanied minors belong.
The bottom line seems to be that the rampant influx of illegals – especially children – into America is beyond any hope of immediate remedy. As many concerned Americans, including Sheriff Joe Arpaio, have concluded, this confusion is all by design as the Obama administration moves eyes imposing amnesty as the only way to deal with a complex and compounding problem.
