Obama tells Mexico: Illegal-immigrant children won't get to stay - Washington Times

Quote:
President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children.
The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S.
With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R. Biden will visit Guatemala on Friday.
Mr. Biden will warn officials and parents that illegal immigration is dangerous and that youth won’t be allowed to stay in the U.S.
The administration says the new influx of child immigrants is due to rampant poverty and violence in countries such as Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Not sure I buy that. I'll believe it when I see it happen. And we should've been announcing to other countries long ago, like Biden will do now, that if you enter here illegally and we catch you, you are not going to stay. This also brings up the fact that our government has continued to fail in its obligation to secure our borders. Put troops down their now while a fence and other measures are put in place.

As if our nation's border patrol force doesn't have enough to deal with already.....

Note how Biden said illegal immigration is dangerous but mentions nothing about it being against the law. Even if it were true that these "children" are fleeing violence and poverty in their countries I ask again where are their parents?

I'm guessing the POTUS is starting to feel the heat over this "minor age" illegal alien invasion and he's trying to back down.

Well what is Mexico going to do about all the other countries they are coming from ?

And if their parents have been here for years all they have to say is they homeschooled.
Bah..like the WH is going to track down the parents of 50,000 minors who are now scattered to all points in the US or released.

You know, just imagine if the government would've done as they said they would years ago and secure the border. We would not even be talking about this now. There probably wouldn't even be a push for "reform". Secure the border and you solve most of the problem. But hey, Lord forbid the government use common sense.

And securing the border is supposed to be the president's job, as required by our Constitution. The incumbent, unfortunately, doesn't want to.

Often the parents have been in the USA for years -- they thought nothing of abandoning those kids even as infants, but now with DACA, they figure those long lost kids could come in pretty handy. And some of the parents live in Central America but word is out about DACA, they figure all they have to do is get their kids smuggled into the USA and then they the parents will be able to join them in "family reunification".

Now that the summer heat is becoming an issue, I think Obama is just worried how it's going to look if some of his beloved illegals don't make it to the loving arms of the border agents and are found dead -- especially the unaccompanied little children being sent over. Obama essentially invited this -- he goes on radio stations geared to illegals and tells them how he wants all immigration laws ended, he wants the horrible border patrol to quit stopping them and of course he has legalized all those under age 31 who were smuggled in. And then he promises family reunification on top of all that.

Obama has a long history of saying 1 thing and doing the opposite. He is all talk.
