The illegal alien surge that’s dumped thousands of children into overcrowded facilities in in American border states is only the “tip of the iceberg” of a crisis that’s going to get worse in the next few weeks, and it was “personally and directly” caused by President Obama’s defiance of Congress on immigration.
That was the message of documentary film maker Dennis Michael Lynch and Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano speaking on a segment of “The Kelly File” Monday night that explored the reasons for the immigration wave of the past month.
“Entire villages are emptying out and coming from Central America through Mexico to the United States,” said Lynch, who has made two films about illegal immigration and studied the issue extensively. “We are not going to be able to handle this. We can’t handle it now.”
Napolitano laid the blame squarely on the “phone and pen” of the president and his election year promise in 2012 of deferred deportation for juveniles.
That promise – a pander aimed at securing the Hispanic vote — “also sent a signal to the people of South and Central America, ‘send your children here and they won’t get deported, then you’ll have an excuse to come here to be with your children and you won’t get deported,.’” Napolitano said.
“The president has taken an oath to uphold the law,” Napolitano said. “He has some leeway in enforcing the law, but when what he does prevents the law from being enforced, when he does the opposite of what the law says, he’s not doing his duty.”
And the ramifications are huge, Lynch said.
Of the thousands of children swamping facilities now, that’s only a third of those who cross the border illegally, he said. The rest are simply getting through.
“This is only the pimple,” he said. “I promise you this, this is going to transform this country.”
