The Department of Homeland Security told Congress that, during the entire Obama Administration, it deported just six percent of minors entering the United States illegally.
Those illegal teens are catching on–and now they’re bragging about it to their friends back home.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, a leading group that fights against illegal immigration, these illegals are also urging their friends from back home to come over to the United States illegally too.
“Border Patrol agents have confirmed that the new arrivals are saying that they know they will be released after they are processed,” explained Jessica Vaughan, the Director of Policy Studies at the Center for Immigration Studies.
“They have heard this from family and friends who have gone before and shared their experience. They use social media to communicate this, sometimes even texting pictures of what they call their ‘permiso,’ which is the document they get showing them to appear for a court date years in the future.”
According to DHS, they caught 122,700 unaccompanied minors crossing the border. And yet, they only sent 7,700 back–just barely 6 percent. That’s a clear failure of DHS’s ability to do their job–or, considering Barack Obama’s attempts to force the so-called DREAM Act through with executive orders, an unwillingness to do so.
Even more surprisingly, this seems to be a problem that’s getting worse, not better. In 2015, up to 3,000 unaccompanied minors a month have come across the border–and most of them have been allowed to stay.
A 100+ page report from Congress, released by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) last month, was blunt and scathing about DHS’s failures to keep illegals out:
“America’s borders are not secure,” said the report. “This current state of affairs is clearly unacceptable. A secure border is not only a prerequisite to a functioning legal immigration system, but it is essential to maintaining national security and protecting public health and safety.”
