Immigrant kids being coached on what to say

Illegal immigrant kids

 

The immigration crisis is now officially a humanitarian crisis as thousands of unaccompanied children have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border in hopes of immigration amnesty. Some media sources have reported that the children have been coached on what to say when intercepted by U.S. Border police. By claiming that they are seeking political asylum or fleeing from fighting in their home country, they cannot be deported under a law known as  the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The law requires that each minor be given an individual hearing to determine whether or not they can be deported to their home countries.

Since the law has been in effect, more than 520,000 people have received permits to stay and work in the U.S according to the LA Times. Republican lawmakers want to amend the law because of a belief these children know how to ‘game the system’ to get access to federal entitlements. There is a belief among many republican conservatives that President Obama is to blame for the influx of immigrants. Last week on MSNBC U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Oklahoma, stated that children were coming through Mexico from Central America by Obama’s “invitation.”

“I think we’re overlooking the obvious here,” Inhofe told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Thursday. “I went down and talked to these kids. … These kids were here in this country at the invitation of the president. I think everyone knows it, nobody says it.” When asked by Chuck Todd to clarify his comments Inhofe went on to state “[Through] his DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, [Obama] is making it sound as if, ‘Come here, we’ll take care of you,’ and they all believe this. I talked to them individually, and I speak enough Spanish that I could do this. All of them were programmed to say that they had relatives here, they’re invited to come up here, they’re going to stay here — at the same time the HHS says, ‘We’re not going to send them back,’ so long as they have that assurance, more are coming in.”

The Obama administration has requested $3.7 billion to tackle the current crisis. His request is not expected to be granted by Congress as the political wrangling continues over the mass immigration of Central American children.

    no you aint gonna put this on obama , if obama wanted over here why did they all steal away here on a train ? and why was this train allowed to travel on the tracks know for immigrants jumping on, and why did this all happen so quick … if obama planned it it would be structured and we would have had places for these kids to stay already …. republicans are the ones at fault ,, george bush did nothing to stop immigrants by the time obama come in it was alreadyout of hand ., im telling you the states are all gonna look like texas by the time is over florida , new york , missour, colorado , oklahoma , iowa, they gonna do just like they did with the katrina victims spread them around throughout the states .. to realitves whom are already illigal here

    What none of these “news” outlets point out is the fact that under the Obama administration there have been more deportations of illegals than there ever was during the Clinton or Bush administrations.

      YES SURE YOUR RIGHT …. obama is the one who gave the permission to the governer of alabama to deport all of the ones working int the state a few years ago that ran them all out of alabama they were down there working factories , etc building plants and the governer did a sweep in one week ,, arresting a whole bunch of them , we got some mexicans painting our building right now .. and some of them speak noooo english , so you tell me how they get a job at a construction company .. their cousins of course those jobs should be alloted to black folks who need jobs .. but this is why someone open the flood gate and said they need to find them a place to live haaaa so that 5 year old in 20 years will be grown no english illegal still and on food stamps and working with no social seciurtiy and no one tryoing to make him a citixen cause to be a citizen you have to speak clear english for one … that is why a lot of africans dont pass the citizen ship test …. dont put this on obama bush did all this and left for obama to clean up … obama came in they started holding these companys responsible when caught hiring illigals hundreds were deported …. now some one done let the gates open .. imean what train was it that the kids rode on who funded it .. and why was it allowe to come to the border without being checked on the way ? even if it was bringing goods here.. the lie is texas and california where that train was headed knew that the train had those kids on it .. texas is built on immigrant workiers blacks cant get those jobs , lawn companys painting , construction .. so they let them trough and tryed to say .. it was a security issue
