As the southern border continues to see an influx of illegal immigrants from Central America, the Obama administration is starting to develop plans to resettle them in the United States. Apparently, most of these new illegal aliens are expected to take advantage of all sorts of loopholes to remain in the United States indefinitely.
From The Daily Caller:
The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article.
A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States.
In order to relieve the overcrowding at detention centers in Texas, the Obama administration appears to simply be trying to get rid of these people. For example, the illegal aliens are being sent to places like Murrieta, California, despite the wishes of the locals.
The deluge of 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States.
So what are some of the loopholes? Well, Central American parents in many cases are having their children smuggled into the U.S., and the Border Patrol is simply releasing them to relatives in the U.S., regardless of the parents’ legal status:
The Central American parents of the 50,000 youths and children are using a 2008 law to ensure their children are transported to them for free by a relay of border patrol and Department of Health and Human Services officials. The youths are delivered to the border patrol by smugglers, dubbed coyotes, in exchange for several thousand dollars.
It’s really no mystery why there is such a large influx at the border, as the U.S. government encourages it with lax enforcement of immigration laws. So, children wanting to be reunited with their parents in the U.S. undertake the dangerous journey, at great risk to their lives.
If the U.S. doesn’t want such a large illegal immigrant influx, then the real solution is to secure the border and enforce current immigration laws.
