Perry accuses Obama administration of fueling 'surge' in illegal immigrant children | Fox News


"In a letter obtained by Fox News, Perry wrote to President Obama on Friday citing stats that show more than 5,200 "unaccompanied minors" were taken into U.S. custody in the first six months of the fiscal year -- a more than 90 percent increase compared with the same period a year ago."


"A recent Associated Press article on the surge reported that 1,390 unaccompanied children crossed over the border and into U.S. custody in March alone. Some have even been housed at Lackland Air Force Base on a temporary basis while they are being processed.*"



Too many magnets in this country. They will keep coming unless we remove the incentives.

I definitely agree with this. We need to be straight forward on who gets what in this country & stop leaving loop holes to jump around

Obama is doing all he can to encourage this surge. First of all he's promising college educations and easy amnesty to all children who get here before age 16 and in 2 short years they can start legally sponsoring in their entire families.

And he's changing the way the border agents do their jobs. They can no longer deport anyone but the most vile of criminals, and the others they must allow to come in and stay in. Now the policy is if the illegal looks "safe" let them come, maybe give him a hug and understand why they want to break our laws.

Votes, votes, and more votes.

His USA/Mexico border enforcement efforts aren't something the extremists can validly or successfully attack the Obama Administration on. Where was Ricky when his buddy "W" was in the White House and the situation got so out of hand? Probaly in bed with one of the illegal women (or men).

nothing will be done about illegal immigration as long as AMNSTY is on the table. Because AMNESTY is the path to VOTING. VOTES = POWER...and NEITHER party is going to **** off that demographic even if it means ignoring our own LAWS...and even if it means the LEGAL American Citizens suffer.

A good example....ILLEGAL immigrants can go to ANY emergency room for treatment of illness...or if they have a disease, they are entered as a patient and treated. Yet our own elderly..>LEGAL citizens have to sell of their house in some cases, if they have an illness that requires hospitalization. Is that fair? No...it isn't. Does the government care that it isn't? No...they don't. It's ALL about VOTES.

Just whom do you consider to be an extremist?
