The smoking gun ?
Call it the “smoking gun”: proof that the Obama Administration knew, and likely colluded with activists and foreign governments, to engineer a massive wave of migrant woman, children and teens (nearly all boys) across the Rio Grande.
This particular ad ran in FedBizOpps in January with RFI for “Escorts” for 65,000 unaccompanied alien children.
WHAT SAY YOU ?
Federal statistics show that the number of unaccompanied children making the dangerous trek from Central America -- specifically Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala -- began to pick up in 2012. It has steadily accelerated since. More than 50,000 total illegal immigrant children have crossed since last October, mostly from those countries. By one count, the estimated number of expected apprehensions this year would mark a 1,381 percent increase since 2011.
The tried, and FAILED never ending GD blame Bush excuse !
One of the last bills signed by President George W. Bush, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, is at the root of the potentially calamitous flow of unaccompanied minors to the nation’s southern border, reports the New York Times. Pushed by a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers as well as by evangelical groups to combat sex trafficking, the bill gave substantial new protections to children entering the country alone who were not from Mexico or Canada by prohibiting them from being quickly sent back to their country of origin. It required that they be given an opportunity to appear at an immigration hearing and consult with an advocate, and it recommended that they have access to counsel.
Under a 2002 human trafficking law signed by former President George Bush and reauthorized again in 2008 with additional protections, Mexican unaccompanied children apprehended crossing the border are automatically returned without formal deportation proceedings because the two countries share a border. But unaccompanied children from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala cannot be sent back without going through the deportation process, since that law ensured that America wouldn’t send kids back to a dangerous situation. (Honduras, for example, has experiences increased gang violence in 40 percent of its territory, while violence against females is surging in Guatemala.) Authorities must instead process these children and determine whether they have credible proof that they cannot return to their countries of origin. Central American children are given basic care like medical screenings in processing centers before being placed with relatives or foster care until they can appear in front of immigration judges.
The humanitarian crisis resulting from thousands of immigrant children crossing into the United States illegally every month has its origins in a little-known law that was passed in the dying days on the George W. Bush administration.

If the US of A can invade and take over a country half a world away, there is no reason why we can’t take over Mexico next door and remove their corrupt, cartel infested government, and put in a new. Mexico has all the resources to become a sustainable/prosperous country. Give the power to the Mexican people, and they won’t want to come to the United States.
Clearly, you haven't felt the need to send your children to a better place, due to the poor conditions of which you and your family live.
WHO IS THE GUY WHO HAS BEEN PRESIDENT for the LAST GD 6 YEARS ?
WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of immigrant children fleeing poverty and violence in Central America to cross alone into the United States can live in American cities, attend public schools and possibly work here for years without consequences.
The chief reasons are an overburdened, deeply flawed system of immigration courts and a 2002 law intended to protect children's welfare, an Associated Press investigation finds.
Adult immigrants caught crossing the Mexican border illegally are generally removed from the U.S. within hours or days of their arrest. But a federal law dating to President George W. Bush's administration requires that unaccompanied child immigrants must be turned over to HHS within three days. From there, many are reunited with parents or other relatives already in the United States or other sponsors before the lengthy court process beings.
Isn't Obama the current potus ?
Again, the law passed in 2002, 2008 is what is keeping these children in the US.
