12,509 illegal kids already over border in second wave, just 1 in 6 returned
Washington Examiner ^ | 3/23/2015 | Paul Bedard

The next explosion of illegal teen border crossing is in full swing, but just one-in-six are being sent home, with most of the rest settled in the United States, according to new government figures.

The U.S. Border Patrol agency reported that they have seized 12,509 illegals under age 18 since October, making it the second biggest surge in history after last year's unprecedented movement of unaccompanied youths across the nation's southern border.

However, when compared to the numbers of illegal kids turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, it is clear that most are being "booked in" to U.S. facilities and then released — not sent home. ICE documents provided to the Washington Examiner shows that ICE is accepting an average of 2,000 a month, meaning that the Border Patrol is returning just one of six kids to their countries, mostly Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

For example, the papers show that ICE "booked in" 2,355 unaccompanied youths in December 2014, second only to the previous December's 3,582.

"And this is supposed to be the slow time of year," said expert Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies. "Cities and towns that have already received large numbers of unaccompanied illegal alien minors should brace themselves to repeat the process again in the coming months," she added.

Based on those figures and her experience charting the last year's surge of illegal immigrants, teens, she projected that U.S. border officials are on track seize about 42,000 unaccompanied alien children, or UACs, this year.

While fewer than the 56,029 taken into the United States last year, it is a clear sign that the administration's claim it has posted a "Return to Sender" note on border crossings isn't having the expected impact on the mostly boys crossing into the United States.

Consider: Already in the current fiscal year, which began in October, ICE has let in 6,580 illegals, more than in all of fiscal year 2011. Generally, said Vaughan, most are released to await an immigration hearing in three to five years.

The "custody management" documents show that babies less than a year old are being accepted into the U.S., with the largest group being 17-year-olds; illegal boys outnumber illegal girls two to one; the top country of origin was Guatemala with 3,292 youths let into the U.S.

The numbers seized at the border are typically higher than the number of those booked into the United States since some are turned back. What's more, only about half of those who try to cross the border illegally are typically caught or even noticed.

This is an invasion , invited by the traitor Barak Obama

Democrat Obama must resign and be impeached and a jailed for his many illegal crimes in which Obama unlawfully went against the will of the people and of Congress: these crimes include

1. Using the FCC to impose Soros’ socialist net neutrality laws on the Internet
2. giving illegals amnesty
3. giving 9 million illegals work permits and SSN’s
4. ordering the IRS to oppress conservatives and Republicans to rig his own re-election election
5. solyndra
6. benghazi
7. laundering hundreds of billion$ to democrat/leftist groups disguised as stimulus
8. obamacare
9. Using the EPA to shut down coal and businesses
a million other crimes , several every day , every single day we hear about many abuses of power , scandals, etc

nobody is putting all this together and calling for Obama’s resignation and impeachment.

government doesn’t work and is unaccountable.

Over 90% of the illegal ‘teens’ Obama rushed into this country skipped their court hearings.
So the time you hear the term “comprehensive immigration reform”, keep in mind that it means amnesty. Period.

Why not print this questionaire up encircle your answers and send it to your US Senator

Dear Senator
INS...Amnesty.. Forget about Ebola
We don’t allow cattle to enter without a background health and ancestry check which we also reqiure of legal immigrants who wait years and still go thru health and record checks. We also require that any legal immingrant demonstrate prior to entry that they offer a contribution to our society and not dependency upon it .

Yet we’re letting children and gang bangers in without doing any of this which has resulted in dispersing virulent new diseases (measles) and drug use which has resulted in unreported cases in schools where these illegal kids were placed.. Plus shoved a severe financial strain on local governments where they are placed .

Should any candidate for Attorney General supporting that practice be denied confirmation ?(Yes) (No) .Should the Senate abandon the fillabuster rule citing the Hanen court ruling as its exclusive reason and use a majority vote to do so (Y) (N) Should those given favored treatment who miss their INS hearing be deported fortwith ? (Y) (N).. ? Denied re-entry (Y)(N) ? Should this also apply to convicted felons (Y) (N)

In “countries where an American citizen decides to be a “legal” emigree never mind being a seasonal visitor still are denied voting privledges. Own land in their own name. Face steep fines before getting kicked out let alone denied income and energy subsistance including food stamps, or bring in family members .
I (do) (don’t) believe we should allow such full citizenship privledges mentioned above which are denied by the country of national origin of the above, to a legal American immigrant , deny such full citizen privledges to any (emigree) (seasonal vistor) (illegal) if their country does not allow those same privledges to any citizen of the United States, .
While such a position will be condemed as defacto deportation particularly by the political establishment .Would you continue to support a Senator who refuses to support such restrictions ? (Y) (N) Does that also include erecting border barriers such as fencing designed to discourage surrepticious or uncontolled entry ? (Yes) (No)

Should any American citizen which goes overseas to join a foreign entity fighting against the United States (such as ISIS) Be denied re-entry (Y)(N) and their citizenship revoked? (Y) (N) Should that person be charged with treason (Y)(N)

Very Truly Yours For Restoring the value of American citizenship and Conservative Government

Include your return address label below along with your signature and date
