The surge of illegal immigrants surging across the border and overwhelming detention centers has been called a “humanitarian crisis” and ascribed to increased violence in Latin America.

But a new poll of those immigrants shows that Obama's promise of amnesty needs to assume much more of the blame:

The main reason the subjects chose this particular time to migrate to the United States was to take advantage of the “new” U.S. “law” that grants a “free pass” or permit (referred to as “permisos”) being issued by the U.S. government to female adult OTMs traveling with minors and to UACs...


The information is apparently common knowledge in Central America and is spread by word of mouth, and international and local media. A high percentage of the subjects interviewed stated their family members in the U.S. urged them to travel immediately, because the United States government was only issuing immigration “permisos” until the end of June 2014…The issue of “permisos” was the main reason provided by 95% of the interviewed subjects.

Of course, this won't be reported by the mainstream media, which has so much invested in advancing the aims of the Obama administration.

The American people will be told that pushing “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” will solve the crisis. Instead, the bitter reality is that if these illegals are rewarded with a “path to citizenship,” it will only encourage many more to make the long, dangerous trek to our borders.
