Illegal Children Pouring Into U.S.

In the past, the number of children crossing our southern border totaled about 7,000 annually. But that nearly doubled to 13,000 in 2012, then more than 24,000 in 2013. The government estimates that this year, already more than 60,000 have crossed the border illegally, and it is now likely to exceed 100,000 kids in this year alone.

This pathetic tragedy has resulted in placing many children in harm’s way. The Obama Administration is obviously unable to fully protect all these children, and lacks proper facilities for housing them. With all the investigative reporters hovering around trying to find some dirt on Republicans, why hasn’t anyone found out how so many children have made it to our border? They obviously didn’t walk across Mexico alone. No one seems to know how they got here, or those who do know are not telling us. But it is clear why tens of thousands of children have suddenly shown up at our doorstep: their families want the amnesty and citizenship that Eric Cantor and big business donors were quietly promising them.

One thousand of these poor children were moved to a facility in Nogales, Arizona. The Obama Administration is transferring many of these children to Arizona, but officials there are furious at being burdened with this immense and costly responsibility. Why are we surprised by this avoidable tragedy? If a border fence had been built as promised, then this dangerous wandering by children across our southern border would not be occurring. Liberals do not like us to say this, because they expect illegal aliens to become Democratic Party voters. The Chamber of Commerce really likes the illegals coming in, because big business expects illegal aliens to become cheap, labor for the companies.
