Immigration's lost children

by Fausta Rodriguez Wertz

My friend Sil­vio Canto brought to my atten­tion this arti­cle:
Wave of Minors on Their Own Rush to Cross South­west Bor­der (empha­sis added)

Since Oct. 1, a record 47,017 unac­com­pa­nied chil­dren have been appre­hended at the south­west United States bor­der, most trav­el­ing from Cen­tral Amer­ica, part of a larger wave that includes some young­sters accom­pa­nied by their par­ents and some trav­el­ing alone.

Bre­it­bart has pho­tos:
LEAKED IMAGES REVEAL CHIL­DREN WARE­HOUSED IN CROWDED U.S. CELLS, BOR­DER PATROL OVERWHELMED

Bre­it­bart Texas obtained inter­nal fed­eral gov­ern­ment pho­tos depict­ing the con­di­tions of for­eign chil­dren ware­housed by author­i­ties on U.S. soil on Wednes­day night. Thou­sands of ille­gal immi­grants have over­run U.S. bor­der secu­rity and their pro­cess­ing cen­ters in Texas along the U.S./Mexico bor­der. Unac­com­pa­nied minors, includ­ing young girls under the age of 12, are mak­ing the dan­ger­ous jour­ney from Cen­tral Amer­ica and Mex­ico, through cartel-​controlled ter­ri­to­ries, and across the porous bor­der onto U.S. soil.

This a per­fect storm, formed by four factors:

  • The U.S. government’s inabil­ity to develop solid immi­gra­tion and bor­der secu­rity policies,
  • The immigrant’s belief that Obama admin­is­tra­tion had qui­etly changed its pol­icy regard­ing unac­com­pa­nied minors, from leniency to down­right permissiveness.
  • The crim­i­nal­ity and poverty of the immi­grants’ home coun­tries per­pet­u­ated by their cor­rupt governments.

And, also,

  • Par­ents who are will­ing to use their chil­dren as human shields, regard­less of the risks involved:
  • Many say they are going because they believe that the United States treats migrant chil­dren trav­el­ing alone and women with their chil­dren more leniently than adult ille­gal immi­grants with no children.

    Face it: plac­ing a small child under the “care” of a coy­ote, who actu­ally is an agent of a drug car­tel, to travel alone with no super­vi­sion, is a most irre­spon­si­ble act. Real­is­ti­cally, the child can be used as a drug mule, a pros­ti­tute, and a hostage for ran­som if the coy­ote believes the par­ents are able to put out more money, at any point dur­ing their journey.

    Amer­i­can cit­i­zens who expose their chil­dren to risks such are charged with child abuse and jailed. Per­mit­ting such par­ents to remain on U.S. soil makes our gov­ern­ment an accomplice.

    Resources should be allo­cated to return these chil­dren to their home coun­tries as promptly and humanely as pos­si­ble. Since even White House Domes­tic Pol­icy Coun­cil Cecilia Muñoz admits,

    We have heard sort of rumors and reports, or sug­ges­tions, that the increase may be in response to the per­cep­tion that chil­dren would be allowed to stay or that immi­gra­tion reform would in some way ben­e­fit these children,”

    the time to do it is now.

    My friend Silvio Canto brought to my attention this article:
    Wave of Minors on Their Own Rush to Cross Southwest Border (emphasis added)

    Since Oct. 1, a record 47,017 unaccompanied children have been apprehended at the southwest United States border, most traveling from Central America, part of a larger wave that includes some youngsters accompanied by their parents and some traveling alone.

    Breitbart has photos:
    LEAKED IMAGES REVEAL CHILDREN WAREHOUSED IN CROWDED U.S. CELLS, BORDER PATROL OVERWHELMED

    Breitbart Texas obtained internal federal government photos depicting the conditions of foreign children warehoused by authorities on U.S. soil on Wednesday night. Thousands of illegal immigrants have overrun U.S. border security and their processing centers in Texas along the U.S./Mexico border. Unaccompanied minors, including young girls under the age of 12, are making the dangerous journey from Central America and Mexico, through cartel-controlled territories, and across the porous border onto U.S. soil.

    This a perfect storm, formed by four factors:

    •  The U.S. government’s inability to develop solid immigration and border security policies,
    • The immigrant’s belief  that Obama administration had quietly changed its policy regarding unaccompanied minors, from leniency to downright permissiveness.
    • The criminality and poverty of the immigrants’ home countries perpetuated by their corrupt governments.

    And, also,

  • Parents who are willing to use their children as human shields, regardless of the risks involved:
  • Many say they are going because they believe that the United States treats migrant children traveling alone and women with their children more leniently than adult illegal immigrants with no children.

    Face it: placing a small child under the “care” of a coyote, who actually is an agent of a drug cartel, to travel alone with no supervision, is a most irresponsible act. Realistically, the child can be used as a drug mule, a prostitute, and a hostage for ransom if the coyote believes the parents are able to put out  more money, at any point during their journey.

    American citizens who expose their children to risks such are charged with child abuse and jailed. Permitting such parents to remain on U.S. soil makes our government an accomplice.

    Resources should be allocated to return these children to their home countries as promptly and humanely as possible. Since even White House Domestic Policy Council Cecilia Muñoz admits,

    “We have heard sort of rumors and reports, or suggestions, that the increase may be in response to the perception that children would be allowed to stay or that immigration reform would in some way benefit these children,”

    the time to do it is now.
