Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The surge in illegal immigrants jumping the U.S. border in recent weeks is almost entirely due to U.S. policy, according to an internal Border Patrol intelligence memo that says the immigrants are taking advantage of the catch-and-release system of enforcement.

The immigrants come seeking "permisos," which apparently are the "Notices to appear" or NTAs, the legal documents given to non-Mexicans caught at the border that officially put them in deportation proceedings -- but that also grant them at least a temporary entry to the interior of the U.S.

"Oh it's a DREAM all right, but not for Americans looking for work"

What job is that? Chicken Packer? Or Hotel Maid?
In addition to that, any jobs lost by native English speakers to non-native Spanish speakers is a condemnation and evidence of poor planning of the former, not the latter.

Go complain to the CEO's of the companies that hire them. Go complain to the farmer's that hire them. Go complain to the landscaping and maid services that hire them.

Government should be imprisoning anyone caught hiring an undocumented worker. Period. Send a few high profile "job creaturs" away for five or ten years and you will see how fast they stop hiring illegals.

But we can't do that for one thing is certain: the rules and laws 99% of the nation lives by don't apply to the 1%. They write their own rules and have their paid for congresscritters pass them.

Seems the rule of law no longer applies in the US and I wonder what that is going to lead to the the not too far distant future.

Experts Cite Gang Violence, Not Immigration Reform, As Main Culprit Of Increased Border Crossings

The Pew Research Center reported that "three of every four unaccompanied children apprehended this year have come from Central America," adding that Honduras, "a nation wracked by gang violence," has seen the most striking increase in refugees.

Citing experts, The Wall Street Journal explained that "most of the children who HHS cares for are attempting to cross through the Rio Grande Valley and coming from Central America, driven by the dire economic conditions and sustained violence at home."

USA Today quoted experts who attributed the dramatic increase in gang violence in Central America as a main factor in forcing children to flee.

The Washington Post quoted Caitlin Sanderson, program director at the Esperanza Immigrants Rights Project in Los Angeles, as saying, "Since January we have talked with 600 to 700 unaccompanied children and we ask every single one, 'why did you come to the United States?' ... I have not come upon one intake form that says, 'because of a rumor that says I can stay here.'"

Mother Jones reported that "those coming from Mexico are taken straight back across. The rest are referred to the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement (rather than being put in immigration detention with adults) and placed in temporary shelters while their deportation proceedings get under way."

They come here for jobs, the conversation should be changed from "illegal immigrants" to "illegal employers" Joe Arpaio has arrested
thousands of forks in work place raids, but never has arrested a single employer even though it has been against Arizona laws to hire these folks since 2007. If idiots like Mitt Romney did not hire these folks, most of the problem would go away, no need for a billion dollar fence or an army of border guards.

"why did you come to the United States?", what a silly question. Of course every answer is going to be along the lines of its better than where I am coming from. The key question people are asking is why such a surging influx now, when these countries have been even worse at prior points in the past few decades?

Poor Andrea, some poorly eductated young Mexican came and took her job away. I guess the new employee works for a little less than Andrea asked for.

"Joe Arpaio has arrested

Thank you Sammy

I'm not so sure that is really true, the gangs are the biggest motivator for all the young coming here now. They say that in their own country they either have to join or face death or even death for their families. Best thing America could do about all this is to destroy the drug market by decriminalizing drugs, make addiction a medical problem to be treated not a crime. We have basically tried the conservative approach to drugs for the past fifty years, it has been a complete disaster for our country and even a bigger disaster for poor countries south of us. It is time to end the drug war and move in a new and better direction.

Most of this wave aren't Mexican, Danni. They're from Central America. Update your Media Matters talking points. The newspapers in Guatemala and Nicaragua are trumpeting Obama's policy as being "if you can get here you can stay, and they'll feed you if they catch you".

It has not applied to the 1% for decades. The "rule of law" is a joke when someone can get out of murder by claiming "affluenza" or banksters can pay millions in bonuses immediately after being bailed out.

#13 So, apparently, are the local newspapers down at the point of origin...and the Homeland Security Secretary.

Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras are promoting policies by the Obama administration that defer deportation to minors brought to the United States as children by their parents -- known as "Dreamers" -- and those that are housing illegal children at military bases in the South and West.

"Almost all agree that a child who crossed the border illegally with their parents, or in search of a father or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than adult violators of the law," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is quoted in a story about a new two-year extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy published by Diario El Mundo in El Salvador.

La Prensa of Honduras discusses in a report how as many as 500 illegal minors are being housed at the Naval Base Ventura County in Southern California.

"The children will be accommodated for between three and four months, while their parents or relatives are located in the United States," the report says.

"The administration of President Barack Obama has acknowledged he faces a serious crisis for the continuous arrival of children, mostly Central Americans, who are illegally entering the country on the border with Mexico."

Besides Mexico and Honduras, the report notes that many of the children are coming from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.

"During their stay, in addition to accommodations and food, children receive English classes, play sports and participate in targeted programs while immigration authorities contact their families," the La Prensa report says.
