Obama’s DREAM Amnesty Leads to Huge Surge in Illegal Alien Minors Invading US

The compassionate move often isn’t what it seems. Obama’s unconstitutional and unilateral DREAM amnesty has led to a huge surge in illegal alien minors crossing into the US.
Since the Border Patrol was forced by Obama Inc. to begin sending minors to local relatives, the number of minors increased including children so young that their crossing is downright dangerous to them. Because of Obama’s pro-alien move, there are twelve-year olds making the risky crossing.
That’s what liberal “compassion” ends up accomplishing.
The Texas-Mexico border is being overrun by a surge of young illegal immigrants who are traveling alone. So much so, that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, earlier this week, declared a “level-four condition of readiness” along the Rio-Grande Valley area of South Texas. Unaccompanied minors have outstripped the resources of federal agencies responsible for managing border security and immigration.
Last weekend, according to a New York Times article by Julia Preston, the Department of Health and Human Services opened a new shelter at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. The facility will house up to 1.000 minors. Transfers of minors to the facility will be handled by both land and air.
Johnson told the New York Times on Friday, the influx of young immigrants has “zoomed to the top of my agenda” after he visited the McAllen, TX, Border Patrol station where he found many young children, one of whom was three-years-old. Johnson spent Mother’s Day at the McAllen Border Patrol station at the request of his wife. During the visit, they asked a twelve-year-old girl where her mother was. The girl replied she did not have a mother, but her father was living in the United States.
“We have to discourage parents from sending or sending for their children to cross the Southwest border because of the risks involved,” Mr. Johnson said. “A South Texas processing center is no place for a child.”
The only way to discourage parents is to stop creating a magnet. Obama created the magnet. The only way to turn it off is to abort the illegal DREAM amnesty and all talk of amnesty. Anything else leads to this.
