immigration border security

The DACA Magnet

A recent memo from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) confirms that major “pull factors” for the current crop of illegal entries includes previously “successful migration attempts.” In other words, the President’s blatant refusal to enforce the law has, as anticipated, resulted in the more than 50,000 unlawful immigrants flooding the border.

Prominent among the administration’s lawless decrees is a program initiated in June 2012 known as DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Under this policy, Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials are instructed to practice “prosecutorial discretion” towards unlawful minors apprehended in the U.S., granting them de facto amnesty. It is this implied promise by the President that unaccompanied alien minors will not be returned home that has led to the current influx.

Many proponents of DACA have pointed out that, for one reason or another, many of the illegal immigrants now entering would not qualify for “deferred action” status under the President’s policy. This fact, however, neither discourages the immigrants from attempting to cross nor will it prevent the President from granting them DACA amnesty anyway.

The Obama Administration has already exhibited willingness to ignore key qualifications for DACA participation in order to unilaterally grant more unlawful minors legal status.

Congress is now debating how to comply with the President’s emergency funding request to correct a situation that his executive fiats have created. For example, though DACA provisions require applicants to provide “educational information,” officials from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recently conceded to Congressional aides that current DACA participants need not adhere to the educational standards when they reapply for consideration this September. As Breitbart explains:

At least 560,000 people to date have been granted temporary amnesty under the DACA program, and federal officials also confirmed that that number is likely to increase as applicants who were not eligible in 2012 because they were not 16 years of age will be this year so long as they meet the other requirements. In addition, DACA recipients cannot “age out.”

Given the loose parameters for application approval, and the Obama Administration’s reckless disregard for immigration enforcement in other areas, it only follows logic that residents of foreign lands will illegally enter the U.S. believing they will not be returned home—since, after all, they won’t.

  1. My God! How sad is it that the first thing that came to my mind while reading this article was a scene from the Woody Allen movie “Bananas” where the rebel leader who has just overthrown the government is reading out a list of new rules, “Effective immediately, all children under the age of 16 years old are now…….16 years old!” A very funny movie, while this border situation is, of course, a human tragedy premeditated by the Obama Administration.

    I pray for a Conservative victory this November that gives us a veto-proof majority in Congress. Perhaps then the Republicans can grow some spine and finally stop this madness. Is there any reason why the House hasn’t used their control of the “purse strings” to de-fund these types of programs?

    • You ask is there any reason why the House hasn’t used their control of the purse to defund these programs. Yeah, Congress is in on the same exact plan that ovomit is in. Agenda 21. If you haven’t already, look it up and watch the video. Then you will see that we are following this agenda to a T. We have in Congress a Speaker with no backbone or balls and a Senate leader who is just as corrupt as ovomit and then goes along with everything that ovomit wants and orders.

      • That is why I specifically called for a “Conservative” victory in the hope that truly Conservative Republicans can take over the leadership of the party and exert our will in Congress. I fear any “3rd Party” attempts such as “Libertarian” or “Constitutional” party would only confuse the already low-info electorate and dilute the vote, thereby ensuring yet another victory by the Dems. Also the reason I specified a “veto-proof majority”. With that, Obama, Reid, Pelosi and the rest of their ilk can be politely told to go “pack sand” while they howl about the intransigence of the “evil Republican Majority”

        • I totally agree with everything you said on your first comment yesterday Steve. I was simply answering your question about why hasn’t Congress used its control of the purse. That was a very good question, because it would be a very simple step to cut off funds for many of ovomits EOS and would reverse his evil plans on what the EO was for. Plus it just might take away the wind in his sail. I just didn’t want you to misunderstand me when I replied back to you. I am like you so fed up with our spineless Congress and that no good cowardly worthless hairless reid. I heard just today from a Representative on Greta on Fox, that the House has passed and sent to the Senate over 360 bills that reid hasn’t even brought up for a vote. I just know that ovomit has told reid which bills to vote on and which ones not to vote on.

    • I saw that video, very interesting. obama does not care he’s off golfing and fund raising. Bet all that money he raises goes right in his pocket. Have you seen his mansion in California he’s getting?

  2. So, we get 50,000 more illegal children each year at the current cost of $250/day (the cost that Obama admin admits for each kid per day). Hmmm, $250 *50,000*365 = $4.5 billion. So, this goes on for the next couple of years. Ouch! Lots of money.

  3. It’s all part of his agenda to destroy our way if life . As he sets himself up to part of the elite of America he’s leaving the middle class and poor to complete with these Immigrants who’ve contributed nothing to our society . The strain on our overburden resources will eventually lead to an economic collapse which will throw all of our citizens into a Third World environment . I would like to state that if this happens the elites will not go untouched , there will be a class world that will make their money worthless which will bring them down with the rest of us . If Obama thinks that he can hurt the middle class and poor in this country and live untouched by this , he is deceiving himself .

    • unfortunately, he will get paid the rest of his life………………………….Millions of dollars if he lives long enough!

  4. Not until this TRAITOR in the oval office is removed and/or CONGRESS
    takes his pen away and put it where the sun does not shine is there
    going to be any hope for AMERICA and the people!!!!!!!! The TRAITOR in
    the oval office is HELL BENT on destroying AMERICA, the CONSTITUTION
    and OUR WAY OF LIFE!!!!!!! He is much more MUSLIM then CHRISTIAN and
    is ATTACKING OUR RELIGIOUS RIGHTS!!!! ALL the RADICAL LIBERALS in
    Washington, DC need to be REINTRODUCED to the AMERICAN WAY!!! After all
    THEY WERE ELECTED TO REPRESENT THE BEST FOR AMERICA and AMERICAN
    CITIZENS, NOT THEIR OWN SELF INTEREST !!!!! TERM LIMITS NOW!!!

      • Just today I received House Speaker John Boehner’s telephone number and a request to call and register my great concerns, which I did. However, I only was able to leave a message and could not speak directly to any live person, go figure!?!? Non-the-less, please call (202) 225-0600 and do the same, maybe you will get lucky and speak to a live person, but if not leave your concerns. Current issue of Great concern is that of Illegal Aliens, which must be stopped!!!

  5. We have more problems than just our jerk president that selectively enforces laws he like, there are hundreds of willing accomplices in congress. We the people have to take this nation back!

  6. everyone should take into consideration that your senate democrats gives your president the power to do as he pleases.
    –replace your democrats with people that put this country above political agendas
    the people you elected are allowing this—if you don’t like it–change them

  7. And stupid Holder can’t figure out why the people are shouting to take our country back? FOLLOW OUR LAWS, QUIT DECIDING WHICH ONE YOU WANT TO FOLLOW AND WHICH ONE TO IGNORE!!! I am so sick of this administration. NO AMNESTY, how long have we been screaming that? Now we got little biological bombs running around and half of the Mexican gang! They are in the amnesty as well! NO WAY, time to go to the border!

    • HOLDER isn’t stupid. He;s just “following orders: from the Arab-Nazi-Muslim-Brotherhood that;s appointed by BHO in the White House-
      The downed planes are also on order from the Arab-Nazis who are pushing their Jihad. Of course we are sick of this administration –but aparently not enough are -because CONGRESS IS COMPLICIT AND STILL SENDS FUNDS TO TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS.

      • Congress is in on the plan right along with ovomit. The plan being the complete and total destruction of our country. One of the goals of the NWO. See Agenda 21.

  8. DACA is a symptom of the problem. The Executive branch, the Congress and also the Supreme Court all have a role in this deconstruction of the United States. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Ben Franklin would not know this is the same United States they worked so hard to found. Schools are a part of the problem also, teach the history not just a one sided picture. People who do not vote contribute to the problem. We need statesmen not politicians in government. Term limits of 8 years total in the Congress would go along way to that end. Just a few ideas to promote thought and hoefully some actions in support of the Constitution.

      • No people can choose what they want to run for. 1House term, & 1 Senate term, or four house terms if they can get reelected, or just 1 Senate term.

    • Yes, I believe term limits would result in legislators who wouldn’t be bought and would try to deal with the issues that present themselves. Term limits for all legislators.

  9. My understanding is that about 4 months ago, administration lackeys were sent to the South American nations to start the rumor that the U.S.A. is relaxing border regulations. People, particularly children will be welcome to enter America where they will be allowed to stay and they will be taken care of.

      • If you were to take the time to read the Obama’s self proclaimed favorite book, you’d find this story believable.

        The strategy you are seeing is EXACTLY how a Community Organizer is TRAINED to cause chaos in order to increase their personal power and pad their own pockets.

        The New American Left is all about using emotions to separate people from their money, keep them angry so they don’t think clearly, and grab the maximum amount of political power – and money. The New American Left believes that the end justifies the means, no lie is too big, and laws are obstacles to absolute power over the people. Their greed is incredibly large, that’s why they tell you how greedy those “evil corporations” are.

        The New American Right is looking more and more like the old Democratic Party that existed before the Clintonistas got in there.

        Hence we have the Tea Party, an effort by the last of the conservatives to preserve what the Republican Party used to be before the Big Government Big Spending Republicans came along.

        It will be interesting to watch this play out. The New American Left has made some colossal miscalculations lately.

        So please, call me a racist, terrorist, xenophobic, homophobic ignorant hayseed who is clinging to guns and religion. I consider it the supreme compliment from a left wing loon like yourself.

        • The “new American Left” is following Socialism and many are deluded to believe it is good for us, but it is in fact unconstitutional as we are guarantees and Republican form of government. You have said it very well!!! your comment is spot on!

          • Unfortunately, our schools are teaching our children that the LEFT is the only way to be…..well, it started many years ago but we were not informed about this, it was hidden in the classroom texts, and now it is full blown!

  10. WORSE…Obama met with Pres.Nieto over a year ago to push creation of welcome.centers on southern Mexico border, where illegals are provided with Obama-directed Mexican Visa Pass ID…and allowance to enter Mexico IF their stated intention is to only past thru on their way to illegally enter the US.
    It has been PLANNED and is now being EXECUTED, just like our non-border.

  11. Found this on another site: President Obama at a fundraiser last night outside Seattle: “People are anxious. Now, some of that has to do with some big challenges overseas. I am very proud that we have ended one war, and by the end of this year we will have ended both wars that I inherited … But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria … to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise … to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza” …

    “Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people. … But here in the United States, what people are also concerned about is the fact that although the economy has done well in the aggregate, for the average person it feels as if incomes, wages just haven’t gone up; that people, no matter how hard they work, they feel stuck.”

    The “old order” against his New World Order……and in his usual “I know what’s best for America” rhetoric….Economies that work for all people? Based on common humanity? Just as real as those jobs he promised in 2008 and 2012!

  12. They are using these numbers to add to the Welfare Rolls until they can no longer meet the bill in the States and Federally. It is Cloward & Piven Socialism, – Overload the system till it breaks, then, in the Chaos after you can install your own people and re-build in a Marxist (communist) model. Don’t be fooled. This is all part of his direct path to communism in his mold. He DOES know what he is doing, AND he IS doing it !

    • My worst fear… That Obama is following Osama’s advice, that “The way to destroy America is through its pocketbook”. On top of the incredible debt we had when the POTUS took office, it has gotten MUCH worse. The compounding fear is that the congress is not stopping his “laws by fiat” because he is black, for fear they will be labelled racist! The president does not have the authority to make laws or waive or rescind laws that exist. Woe be unto us if we don’t somehow stomp on this path to Communism and dictatorial leadership.

  13. Obama has ruined this country. How are.we.to take care of these children when clearly he has messed.things up for us raising.our own children? A blatant shame he has brought upon this country and US as a people.

  15. We are a nation of immigrants. We are people who lead by example. Ronald Reagan made two statements that I believe apply here. One, “America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere”. Two,” There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.”. As an American who still believes that we have the courage to be one nation and work together as one people we should welcome these children and care for them. You negative people should be ashamed of yourselves. You are not true Americans.

    • legal immigrants, not gangs, criminals and welfare queens.. you want these milions of welfare cases, you pay for them personally…american currently admits legally over a million immigrants per year, how high must our taxes be for folks like you to figure out we can not afford thes millions more to supprt…one in 20 will work..ever shame on your for being so uninformed

      • LaRae Bailey, as I read about the immigrants who are here it appears to me that most of them (some excluded, of course) are here to work and in my experience they are working. I see them milking cows, working in restaurants, roofing, landscaping and in general doing the labor of this country. Employers in those industries do not want them to be forced out. I cannot find the one in twenty figure you cited. Would you provide the source of that statistic?

    • You are some kind of special liberal? I’m being kind here. My forbarers came through Ellis Island the LEGAL way. The border people are dealing with ILLEGAL aliens. What part of ILLEGAL do you not understand
      You also need tpo remember this crisis was brought about the a Presidential Executive Order. That means it was NOT approved by the Congress but and order from the President all on his own. I would like to who annointed him King?

      • Do you feel better now? Lets deal with facts. Below is what is causing the congestion. Congress passed the law so they have approved of the current actions. You do support obeying the law I presume. Instead of whining, you should be standing and supporting our President for providing the leadership this country needs because the current congress is not. By the way most of our ancestors came through Ellis Island and many of them fabricated stories about who they were and why they came. But that is for another discussion.

        Washington (CNN) — It was a good idea back in 2008, in the final days of the Bush administration.

        With almost no opposition, Congress passed a new law to protect immigrant children from sex traffickers trying to bring them to the United States. It required judges to hold hearings for youngsters from countries other than neighboring Mexico and Canada, preventing them from possibly getting turned away at the border.

        More than five years later, though, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Action Act is having unintended consequences. It contributes to the surge of child migrants from Central America overwhelming the U.S. immigration system.

        Immigration Debate

        ‘Documented’ reporter detained at airport

        Now some in Congress want to change the law — a possibility that could bring more unintended consequences.

    • Our ancestors were immigrants, yes, but i am not one. and I bet YOU are not one. Besides, there is not comparison between legal immigration and illegal immigration. If they can afford to pay the drug cartels upwards of $5000.00 to bring them here then they can afford to do it legally!!!

    • We the people are used to leading by example. However at the present time we are being led by a disconnected President who has created an immigration disaster wtih this Executive order of 2012. This coupled with the oft repeated push by the same President to grant unconditional amnesty to 11,000,000 (now here is that word again) ILLEGAL aliens.That is a fact.

      • Mr. Gunguys, I thought the title of this board meant disscussion occurred not “listen to my views, but yours are stupid”. I welcome and enjoy the discussion of the issues of the day. Thought #1, you indicated that we “USED to be the people who lead by example”. Do you believe we do not anymore and if so why has that changed? Thought #2, what is your plan to deal those undocumented people who are here? As you know the current and previous president have attempted to resolve the issue in essentially the same way but congress has not moved on either one’s recommendations. I await your proposals and method of getting congress to act.

        • #1: This country USED to lead by example but when the current POTUS went on a world tour and bowed to Arabian kings and apologized to countries for perceived meddling that all changed in the blink of an eye. Since that world tour we have been misled, lied to and corrupted from the very top of the Government. Thus we are being led.
          #2: The case of undocumented (ILLEGAL) aliens can be solved with a $550.00 plane ticket back home not 3 Million of taxpayer dollars to house them here until they can escape into the population and begin to undermine the society. Please keep in mind many of these ILLEGAL aliens are already fellons from their own county, terrorist in disguise, carrying diseases. Let us not forget the demonstrations in California with burning of the US flag (it’s against the law) raising the Mexican flag and other civil disobedience attacking and showing scorn for the American way of life which the protesters apparently came to this county to become a part of the American society. I could go on and on but believe I have said enough for this lesson.It’s simple, shut the border and ship the Illegals back, make them come in the right way.

    • You people seem to forget one little detail in all your rambling….THEY ARE COMING HERE ILLEGALLY! There is a process which thousands follow to come here legally.

  16. There is a simple solution to this crisis. We should allow into the country each child who has a sponsor that is willing to assume the full burden of their upbringing, pay tuition for their education and pay out pocket all their medical expenses (ineligible for Medicaid, or any form of welfare) so that they qualify for admission to the US by never being a burden on the public or society until they are old enough to take care of themselves. Such a sponsor must post bond sufficient to cover such expense so that there can be no default. Eh Conchman!

  17. If we are stuck with them then we need to teach them how to stand up for their rights and how govt works so they can, once adults, return to their own country and fix it for themselves! No Amnesty, no benefits, just teach them how to fight and govern and require them to leave the united states by the age of 25.

  18. I consider this action by our president a “high crime” against our country. It is also dereliction of duty. To orchestrate an immigration crisis in order to force his will on the nation, setting aside our system of government in the process, is an action that shows the man to be a domestic enemy of the United States. We are talking about a deliberately orchestrated criminal act and a refusal to enforce the laws of our country. The man is a traitor to our country and a lawless criminal who must be removed from office before he does any further damage to our Constitutional Republic. Any man who believes himself to be above the law and even works against the law is not worthy for any office– much less the presidency. That is not an emotional rant; it is the objective truth of what is going on here.

  19. The USA spend $Billions in Central America.. For Example the CARSI program. Central America Region Security! Yes, a very successful program that has reduced violence and secured borders in Central America over the last 5 years…
