Do our leaders not know that terrorists can read and they follow our news? Terrorism is growing around the world by leaps and bounds, and we’re inviting anyone into the country that wants to come. It’s only a matter of time before Jihadists slip through the cracks and do some real damage to the homeland.
It doesn’t help that the Republicans have bailed on their campaign promises regarding immigration. They think a bill that only adds 47 miles to the border fence and does nothing about Obama’s catch and release policies is good enough. We didn’t elect them to go along with Obama’s stupidity, we elected them to stand for something and do something about big problems. I guess that was too much to hope for.
The flow of Central American migrant families across the Texas border is continuing at almost the same level as a year ago, according to newly released federal data.
In the last three months of 2014, 7,468 Central American migrants crossed in family units, down only 12 percent from the 8,511 migrants who crossed during the last three months of 2013, according to the federal data.
The late 2013 flow was the vanguard of roughly 60,000 adults and children who crossed in so-called “family units” during the 12 months up to October 2014. That “family unit” inflow occurred alongside the much-publicized inflow of 60,000 children and youths.
Since last summer, White House officials have made deals with Mexico and other Central Americans countries that are intended to block the northern flow of migrants. The continued flow across the border suggests those deals have not succeeded.
The continued inflow is also a warning sign for Republican leaders, who are rapidly pushing a new border security bill that only adds 48 miles of fending to the 2,000-mile border but doesn’t do anything to end President Barack Barack Obama’s catch-and-release policy toward Central American migrants, say critics.
