Obama administration officials deny that lenient policies (including a 2012 Executive order that allowed immigrants who had entered the country illegally as minors before June 2007 to apply for deportation deferrals) have encouraged the sudden surge of illegal immigrants and minor children under 18. With this information let’s build a wire frame of who is actually responsible for the massive surge of illegal immigrants today.
To start Diane Feinstein had introduced a bill back in 2007, The Unaccompanied Alien Child Protection Act, which was a “pet project” of hers that she had actually introduced several years earlier and it didn’t get much attention or even discussion. That being said her “pet project” was then attached to what we have today William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008. This act states that minor illegal immigrant children coming over the border illegally from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador prevents the quick return of the children to their original countries. Mexico and Canada illegal minors including adults and adults from the three mentioned countries are exempted from that law and can be expedited back to their countries quickly without any hearing, if caught.
This is the law that President Bush was passionate about to protect minor immigrant children from traffickers. It gave compassion to those children that border patrol agents would take into custody and in a humane timely procedure their cases were heard and decisions made. 50,000 illegal immigrant minors under the age of 18 is going to take some time to get done, but more are coming each day as long as the borders are not secured.
In 2012, by Executive Order, Obama place into effect the DACA-Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This order was only to blanket cover illegal immigrant children who enter the United States illegally prior to 2007 predating by Executive Order the 2008 law. Now remember that date it will be necessary to follow the wire frame of blame. Along with the 2008 law that then President Bush signed Obama followed that up with his DACA order which then if any one has any common sense could see that Obama was not only predating the law that was already in place but now he has added more to that without having to get it approved through Congress. 2012 was the beginning of the surge of illegal immigrants, mainly minors under the age of 18 not the 2008 law that President Bush singed, but by Executive Order.
Never mind that by Executive Orders (which Diane Feinstein has suggested that he do for this crisis) and not respecting the letter of the laws even ones he has signed such as the ObamaCare individual open enrollment end date, the ObamaCare employer mandate and 26 other adjustments to ObamaCare that he has done without Congressional approval, EPA regulations and so on and so forth Obama has completely disregarded and shown lack of respect for the laws but it is this one law that all of a sudden Obama is starting to be a stickler about following to the letter.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that Obama is responsible for the surge of illegal immigrants mainly minors under the age of 18 by his 2012 Executive Order broadcasting that if you make it to the border you have a good chance at not being deported because there is a law that prevents that from happening
All of this is on Obama and he cannot blame President Bush for this one as he is more commonly known to do when his way of governing fails miserably. This is Obama’s version of Comprehensive Immigration Reform that doesn’t need Congressional approval other that allocating tax payer funds to cover it.
