Over 47,000 illegal immigrant children have crossed the U.S. border since October: All to ride President Obama’s “dreamers” program of ‘deferred’ deportation. As in never having to go back. And that’s not even the worst news: With (R) Eric Cantor now suggesting he’s coming on board with a ‘compromise’, the crisis is expected to get worse. ‘Word of mouth’ on a congressional bill will undoubtedly increase the influx of kids coming across, before any real changes to the border policy takes place. Border agents are swamped in a crisis never seen before in it’s history.
From Katie Pavlich, Townhall: “A lot of the agents are pissed just beyond belief because we realize these people, there’s no way they’re going back, they’re going to be let go eventually. They’re just trying to figure out how to do it right now. The problem is with President Obama’s deferred deportation program, they’re not deporting any juveniles so they’re not going to deport these people back to their home country, which would be the common sense thing to do,” one source said. “They’re unaccompanied juveniles, meaning they didn’t come with a parent or a relative so you can’t just let them go on the street because they’re a juvenile so now they’re in a bind going, ‘What the hell do we do with all of these people?'”
Not setup for this massive influx of illegals, the makeshift accomodations are conditions of a 3rd world country as the Border Patrol agents try to figure out how to house, feed and control the avalanche.
“It’s just chain-link cells so we have aliens sleeping all over the floor and they told us to probably expect another thousand over the next week, week and a half,” another Border Patrol agent tells Townhall. “We have these huge chain link cages, 20-feet tall with razor wire around them, this is inside a warehouse. They are probably 50 by 100 [feet] and there’s probably 10 or 11 of these big cages like that and so there’s probably 100-200 aliens in each cell, or cage and there’s just park benches right down the middle, two rows of park benches and then they give them these little rubber mats, a little foam pad to lay on. We don’t have enough blankets so they’re issuing out those foil blankets, it’s like a piece of tin foil and that’s all they get. There are so many people crammed. The smell is just horrendous, horrendous.” From Katie Pavlich, Townhall

But the mainstream media is trying to put a mixed spin on the crisis via some big headlines, BUT comfortable, unrealistic dialogue and photos:
“A dormitory used to house children who illegally crossed the border from Central and South America without adults is seen in a handout picture released by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) taken at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas June 2, 2014.”
There is one interesting piece to the NBC reporting:
Despite the bump up in money requests, the official dismissed suggestions that the administration was caught unprepared for the influx of unaccompanied children whose arrivals President Barack Obama declared to be a humanitarian crisis.
Well, he created it!!
Somewhere, George Bush is saying ‘Don’t blame me…’
