Last year Obama opened the door to our southern border to allow tens of thousands of so-called “unaccompanied minor” illegal aliens to flood into the country. Now, lo these many months later, hundreds of these illegals are starting to show up in local criminal courts accused of rape, murder, and other major crimes.
You’ll recall that Obama essentially told countries south of our border that he was going to give free citizenship and billions in free “benefits” to any illegal that could make his way to our country. Now, many of those illegals are turning up as dangerous criminals committing the worst crimes imaginable.
As the Obama administration prepares for a new surge of illegal immigrant children this year, some of those from previous waves are turning up on court dockets across the country, charged with serious crimes such as capital murder and aggravated rape.
The cases are exposing many of the holes in the immigration system and the way the U.S. has tried to grapple with children fleeing economic troubles, domestic abuse or gang violence in Central America — and sometimes bringing those very troubles to the U.S. with them.
From the law, which requires most of the children to be turned over to social workers, to immigration authorities and the court system, which allow most of them to abscond, never showing up to be deported, to the lack of a safety net to help the children once they’re free in the country, the cases suggest a broken process nearly from start to finish, with some children getting lost in the system and others being released because of overcrowding, only to reappear when they’re called before a judge to answer for a bigger crime.
“The eagerness of the administration to open our borders is not without consequence,” said Rep. Duncan Hunter, a California Republican who has tracked the issue. “Now we’re seeing some of these same minors in the criminal justice system, and the crimes some are being brought in for are very serious, even heinous. The administration, with their approach, wants to assume everyone that shows up on America’s doorstep has good intentions, but that’s a dangerous assumption, and we’re seeing evidence of the fact.”
Add this to the fact that Obama is now sending airplane tickets to illegals in several Central American countries, courtesy of your tax dollars, of course.
