So now we also see that requests for asylum get approved.
No wonder all these kids are coming here.

The odds are in their favor that they get to stay.

That's some "tough statement" we're sending to central America

Two-thirds of illegal immigrant children approved for asylum: report - Washington Times
According to the Judiciary Committee’s numbers, 65 percent of unaccompanied children’s asylum applications are approved by the initial asylum officer so far in 2014. Even those who are refused can ask for an appeal, which means the total number who end up staying, with government permission, is likely to be higher.

Wasn't that set up under the Bush administration to deal with only select children? Not blaming Bush but it seems as if the law was either written badly or it is not being applied correctly.

It was a law written with the best of intentions. Like many well meaning laws it has been corrupted by the legal profession. Sort of like the 14th amendment. The Russians said it best. The start of any good revolution is kill the lawyers first. LOL

Bush's law has to do with human trafficking.

These kids are seeking asylum from violence.

Bush's law is being blamed for this surge.
None of kids have said they were kidnapped so how can anyone say this is due to the 2008 law on human trafficking of children ?

The 2008 law deals with children abducted from their homes and brought to the US against their will.

That number should be no higher than 5%, and even that is stretching it.

The only "tough statement" that's being sent to Central America is that our government, starting with the idiot at the top, does not care about the enforcement of immigration law.

Oh and they are handing out asylum to adults as well like lollipops.

And once approved for asylum an immigrant can sign up for all welfare programs.
There is no waiting period.
Asylum granted to adults is up 75% since 2008

This administration is granting a very sly "path to citizenship" that is now just coming to light.

You got it right, and you know you do. Obama's plan, his agenda all along. And he got his wishes didn't he. At the cost to American born citizens, and to hell with our feelings on this crisis.

What we now need from you Mr. President, is Hope on this crisis that you helped fasicilate, yes he did. And change for the better, all around.

That. ^

They are not required to provide any ID to prove where they're actually from, so all they have to do is say a country other than Mexico, claim they're escaping violence, and they get asylum.

The 2008 law meant to help victims of child trafficking and the sex slave trade is being deliberately abused.

It doesn't say anything about that 2008 law.

The 2008 law is not about asylum people; it's about abduction of children from their home country. None of these children have been abducted, especially those that got reunited with their illegal parents here in the US.


Don
In a trafficking situation, the child is a victim and an involuntary commodity being moved across the border for an illegal purpose such as servitude or prostitution. But a leaked Immigration and Customs Enforcement intelligence report confirms that most of the children who arrive unaccompanied are smuggled, not trafficked: “Unaccompanied children are typically smuggled to the United States by human smuggling networks through established routes . . . the fees for which are most likely paid for by [their] family members residing in the United States.” The smuggling is a deplorable scenario, but it is not the same thing as trafficking.

The same ICE report reveals that about 43 percent of the unaccompanied minors are reunited with a parent soon after arriving in the United States.
