White House: "Surprising uptick" in U.S. illegal border crossings - CBS News

I heard someone on the radio theorizing it's because they want to get in before Trump becomes Prez!

So we'll be getting a whole new bunch, then Trump will lose to Hillary or Bernie and they'll all be getting amnesty. (cue sad trombone)

I wouldn't be surprised if this "uptick" does have something to do with Trump. They are figuring that they need to get here before the election. If they were smart, they would realize that if Trump gets elected, they won't be allowed to stay.

Def a gamble there because if Trump DOES win; it's gonna be "open season" on illegal aliens by law enforcement.

The key is "If they were smart.........."

Fingers crossed! Just the possibility seems to good to be true. I still say there are databases loaded and ready of those that have gotten over with this crap that Obama has pulled.

Ready and waiting. What lifts my spirits when I'm down: Countdown Timer - Countdown to Jan 20, 2017 in Washington DC and ticking!

Mexico's economy is starting to flounder would be the most likely reason.

Nah, the Dems want to bring in more voters for Hillary.

I doubt it has anything to do with Trump. Even if Trump won we are talking about 2017. These people probably planned to cross illegally way before Trump announced his candidacy.

True, criminals have no time line and don't follow law anyway.
