Illegal women, kids swarm US via Mexico after home countries report Obama ‘amnesty,’ free legal aid

Driven by an agricultural disaster and lured by news reports in their home countries that a feckless Obama administration has essentially declared amnesty for illegal aliens, thousands of women and children are flooding holding centers in Texas and Arizona.

Since being overwhelmed by an influx of illegal immigrants at the Texas-Mexico border last month, including huge numbers of children unaccompanied by adults, the Department of Homeland Security has been transporting migrants – by bus and plane — from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to sites in Arizona, The Associated Press reported.

One center in Nogales, Ariz., expected to receive more than 1,000 unaccompanied children from Friday to Sunday alone. Andrew Wilder, a spokesman for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer,  said federal officials are asking the state to ship medical supplies to the center and the Federal Emergency Management Agency is going into action to deal with the crisis, according to AP.

The Nogales  center is just the beginning, though. The children will be vaccinated there before being sent on to centers in California, Texas and Oklahoma, AP reported.

The immigrants are mainly coming from Central America, which makes it more difficult to deport them than just sending them back to Mexico.

According to the Arizona Star, one reason behind the sudden surge is a coffee fungus that has destroyed coffee crops and wiped out plantation jobs in Central America.

However, Wilder said the true depth of the crisis is a creation of the Obama administration.

“They keep coming. This will not stop. The call has gone out to Central American countries, countries abroad, that if you get here the doors are open,” Wilder said.

KRGV Channel 5, in the border town of McAllen, Texas, reported that migrants from Central American countries like Guatemala are hearing news reports at home that mothers with children are being welcomed in the U.S. with plane and bus tickets to the interior.

And where are the news outlets in Central America getting the idea that the U.S. is open to all comers?

From the White House, says Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

“It is a direct consequence of the presidents illegal actions,” he said, according to Breitbart. “The parents think, ‘If I send my child [to the U.S.], my child will have amnesty.’ That’s what the president of the U.S. has said. It is the exact opposite of a humane approach to immigration or to securing our borders.”

Meanwhile, Attorney General Eric Holder announced plans Friday to allocate about $2 million in grants pay lawyers and paralegals to represent minors who enter the country illegally – taxpayer money going to pay for non-citizens.

So thanks to a natural fungus that’s destroying coffee crops in Central America, there’s a real humanitarian crisis brewing on America’s southern border that’s a perfect storm of Obama-era liberalism in action.

Politically motivated lawlessness lures immigrants to make dangerous journeys from Central America to the United States – a veritable manna of vulnerable women and young children streaming into the hands of human  traffickers.

The federal government creates a crisis of epic proportions, then leaves the mess for the states to clean up. And for those lucky women and children who escape the depredations of perverts, pimps and other criminals that plague them on the journey north – congratulations, we got you a lawyer.

Welcome to Obama’s America.

    The PRESIDENT has stopped enforcing the immigration laws. We are a lawless Nation with Obama. He is attacking our Nation by allowing illegals into our country. How did these people get into the USA? Why are they being bussed to Arizona? If you lived in Central America and were invited to come to the US, would you come? Of course you would. Citizens will “pay” for this attack on domestic tranquility and destruction of the USA.

  2. Growing Up says:

    Send them back

  3. Quin says:

    Liberals won’t be happy until the U.S. is one big Balkanized, third world country. What I want to know is at what point will enough be enough. I mean, we can’t fit the whole world here, so at what point will liberals see the wisdom in controlling the border and screening immigrants?

  4. Sharon says:

    Shoot them! I don’t care, their parents do not care about them why do we?

  5. HannaH43 says:

    this is insanity. Our president Obama said. The borders were secure. So secure that thousands of children could sneak in the United States. I think the government of this president has committed treason. The people must protect their own borders if the government will not do it is time for rebellion. Is time for Civil War 2 go to the border protect your country. to hell with our treasonous government

  6. HannaH43 says:

    I do believe it’s time for Civil War 2 o we no longer have a government that represents most of people. Our founding fathers said. When this happens the people have a right and a duty to revolt.most Americans Democrats and Republicans want the border secured the stopping of illegal aliens. The government has betrayed us for years. We have no option but rebellion long live liberty

  7. Tim Guilbault says:

    if a country was to reject these people from their borders without
    allowing them any access to asylum protection or complementary
    protection processes, it actually would be in breach of the conventions. This is being called a humanitarian situation, not a immigration situation. We have no choice but to protect them. The best we can do is fix their country so the woman and children are safe.
