The Obama administration is causing yet another crisis by allowing pregnant illegal immigrants and illegal immigrant parents with young children to stay in the United States to await 30-day hearings they will probably never show up for. This is, in many cases, not enforceable. After all, if the pregnant women were to have their children while in the United States, these babies would automatically become American citizens. (Fox News reports, “Many of them are in the advanced stages of pregnancy” and seeking just that.)

With the so-called DREAM regulations created by President Obama, a brighter future lies ahead for many children who were brought here illegally by their parents in the past. Amidst the influx of new illegal immigrants, “Vice President Joe Biden plans to travel to Guatemala to convince young people there that they will not receive the same treatment if they come to the United States now,” reports National Review.

And we have learned that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,000 immigrants, some with criminal records, back into the U.S. last year.

If you’re an unaccompanied minor, or in legalese an unaccompanied alien child (UAC), you can count on social services and pro-bono legal support to help you stay in the country and reunite with relatives who already live here. “Our organization, Safe Passage Project, finds that nearly 90 percent of the unaccompanied minors we meet who are facing deportation qualify for immigration relief, allowing them to remain in the United States legally,” Safe Passage Project Director Lenni Benson told The New York Times last month. How many illegal alien parents will choose to go this route to ensure that their children have a chance at U.S. citizenship?

The New York Times fails to connect the Obama administration’s lax immigration policies to the influx of illegal immigrants, but their own reporting hints at the increase in what they term “migrants.” “While most men are held and processed quickly for deportation, border authorities struggling to manage the influx have been releasing pregnant women and parents with young children, allowing them to join family members living here and issuing them a deportation hearing notice,” writes Julia Preston for the Times. “Migrants have sent word back home they received a ‘permit’ to remain at least temporarily in the United States, feeding rumors along migrant routes and spurring others to embark on the long journey.”

In other words, this treatment is encouraging what the Times calls “migration”—what should be correctly called “illegal immigration”—across U.S. borders. “With no immigration detention site equipped for women with children in the area—the closest one, in Pennsylvania, is overbooked—they are freed by the Border Patrol with a bus ticket to travel to where they have relatives in this country, and an order to appear in immigration court in 30 days,” reports Preston. Yes, the U.S. government is even supplying them with bus tickets to speed these illegal aliens to wherever they choose to go.

And, thus, the Times misinforms its readers. Why isn’t it calling for more Border Patrol resources to deal with this problem? Is it because it supports amnesty for illegal aliens, instead? Indeed, following its classic model, the Gray Lady attributes criticisms of the administration to “Republicans,” not concerned citizens, thereby dismissing these views as more partisan politics.

  • If you believe the Guys who’ve actually worked the Border and should have a real good idea what’s going on; Obama orchestrated this entire mess to force Congress into passing immigration reform.. He knows the American People won’t want these kids hurt by throwing the out of the country..

    There’s now evidence the Administration was trying to recruit people to help with the kids before the crises started

    Unlike the simple act of crossing the border illegally, which is a nor charge.. Any American that entices or aids and abets illegals is subject to felony charges.. with each count punishable by a minimum of three, and a maximum of 5 years in prison..

    47,000 times 5 years is very long time..

    This is what happens when the narcissistic, divisive, Marxist emperor wannabe ignores federal law. Sad part is that he will never be held responsible for ignoring the federal laws of this land.

    Back in JANUARY of 2014 the government solicited bids from vendors who would transport under aged aliens to the US. The solicitation suggested 65,000 UACs would need transport and offered the vendors a 5 year fixed rate contract.

    Under our current government of Social Engineering Obama wants foriegners to live here that commit crimes and that aren’t eligible to live here in the first place so he can run the current legal citizens out of the colleges because of religious and racial persecution and their blood and replace them with people that have the exact same blood except that they have aligned their self with terrorist !
    In this case their running programs of Numerous Clauses by increasing the Jewish Population by adding Palestinians. In America where minority quotas have been the long standing trend it makes very little sense and the UN should publicly recognize the federal government is dictating the social order and downgrade them to the far corner of the room to sit with Kim Jong now that he qualified for admission into the UN.

    On April 3, 2006, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights announced its finding that incidents of antisemitism are a “serious problem” on college campuses throughout the United States. The Commission recommended that the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights protect college students from antisemitism through vigorous enforcement of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and further recommended that Congress clarify that Title VI applies to discrimination against Jewish students.
