As President Obama cuts back more and more on deporting illegals and gives less focus on securing our southern border with Mexico, reports are showing that entire families of illegals are surging across the border at rates already higher than the wave of 2015.
It is now only half way through the year and the avalanche of illegals has already topped the number of lawbreaking from the whole of 2015, the Washington Times is reporting.
“Some 6,788 people traveling as families were caught on the southwest border in May,” The paper reported, “a leap of more than 20 percent over April, and putting the total for the first eight months of the fiscal year at nearly 45,000.”
That is at least 5,000 more illegals over the numbers the federal government reported in 2015 at this same time.
While the Obama administration has tried to explain away these surges of illegals, it is clear his own administration’s lax enforcement of our immigrations laws has invited wave after wave of illegals to come here for U.S. benefits and freebies.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection says it has deported about 50,000 people back to Central America this year but even by the agency’s own figures it means they’re falling behind, as nearly 60,000 unaccompanied children and families have been caught in the same time period. And this figure doesn’t include the many thousands apprehended from other regions and in other situations.
Indeed, the Obama administration has for several years been gutting border protection and cutting down on the number of deportations.
As reported at Breitbart News last year, the lowered level of deportations announced in 2015 was on top of the serious reductions that were already instituted earlier that year. At the time the reductions meant Obama had reduced the number of deportations to the lowest levels since 2006.
By 2015, it was estimated that 2.5 million illegals had crossed into the U.S. since Obama was inaugurated. This 2.5 million figure doesn’t include those that will illegally enter the U.S. in Obama’s last year in office.
