President Obama couldn’t get the Dream Act passed through college so he’s basically just enacting it through fiat. The result is a surge in illegal immigration. What a shock. Who would have thought that rewarding law breaking would bring about more law breaking?
The Border Patrol and other agencies report a “surge” of unaccompanied minors coming across our border. It coincides with the White House’s de facto amnesty via the Dream Act to reward such lawbreaking.
The Office of Refugee Resettlement noted a “surge” in unaccompanied alien children in its year-end report last week, pointing out that 24,668 foreign minors in the country illegally were placed in the care of a federal de facto baby-sitting service because no parents were around to care for them.
Last year’s number was a near doubling from 2012, and nearly quadruple what it was at the start of the decade, according to a report on Fox News.
The surge just happens to coincide with the one opening in immigration that involves young people — the Dream Act. Though it never came to a vote in the Senate in 2010 after passing in the House in 2009, it’s now being enforced by President Obama’s executive order, enabling young illegals to jump the immigration queue to please the open borders lobby.
As a result, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports in fiscal 2011-12 that child migrants apprehended at the border have surged 208% from Honduras (from 974 to 2,997), 145% from Guatemala (1,565 to 3,835), 138% from El Salvador (1,394 to 3,314), and 19% from Mexico (11,768 to 13,974) over the year earlier.
Read the whole thing. All of the countries noted above have had big spikes in internet searches for “dream act” or similar phrases. Do you think that’s just a coincidence?
