“As long as (U.S.) immigration reform is not approved, the exodus of children to the United States will continue,” Jorge Ramon Hernandez, the senior representative of Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, said at the talks.
Honduran President Vows To Keep Dumping Illegal Alien Children On U.S. Border Until His Friend President Obama Says To Stop….
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) is a memorandum authored by the Obama administration on June 15, 2012. It was implemented by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano. It directs U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to practice prosecutorial discretion towards some individuals who immigrated to the United States as children and are currently in the country illegally.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

I don't think the Obama administration anticipated the amount of resistance that it has gotten from the population concerning the influx of illegal aliens.
Not that it will change anything they do.
They'll just stop lying about it now.
Insisting the immigrant children should be returned to their parents, Biden also said "immigration reform has not died".
"The (administration) message that is coming out now is 'Don't come,'" the U.S. official said in an interview. "And if you think you're coming and once you're here you won't be returned, that's not the case. You're not going to be able to stay. And that's the message that we're hoping will dissuade these young people," the official added. It is a tough message, but one that many experts think will fail to shut a spigot that Washington estimates will bring at least 60,000 "unaccompanied minors" to the U.S. border this year and grow to 120,000 next year, up from 6,000 in 2011.

But many people think the current onslaught is being sponsored for a different reason.
Today's "immigration" is not yesterday's.
Two different agendas. Two different results.
Different laws, different times.
Now may not be the time for historical daydreams.
Professionals are at work. And they're not from the "Ethics Board".

The level of Administration arrogance was higher in 2009.
I gotta disagree.
He is still as arrogant as ever.
Obama: It's Lonely Doing All The Work
The problem with him is he believes the snip he is shoveling.
Right, when Reagan granted amnesty to 3 million illegals in 1986, that was a good thing because it was Reagan.
