Illegal women, kids swarm US via Mexico after home countries report Obama ‘amnesty,’ free legal aid

Driven by an agricultural disaster and lured by news reports in their home countries that a feckless Obama administration has essentially declared amnesty for illegal aliens, thousands of women and children are flooding holding centers in Texas and Arizona.

Since being overwhelmed by an influx of illegal immigrants at the Texas-Mexico border last month, including huge numbers of children unaccompanied by adults, the Department of Homeland Security has been transporting migrants – by bus and plane — from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas to sites in Arizona, The Associated Press reported.

One center in Nogales, Ariz., expected to receive more than 1,000 unaccompanied children from Friday to Sunday alone. Andrew Wilder, a spokesman for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer,  said federal officials are asking the state to ship medical supplies to the center and the Federal Emergency Management Agency is going into action to deal with the crisis, according to AP…

…And where are the news outlets in Central America getting the idea that the U.S. is open to all comers?

From the White House, says Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

“It is a direct consequence of the presidents illegal actions,” he said, according to Breitbart. “The parents think, ‘If I send my child [to the U.S.], my child will have amnesty.’ That’s what the president of the U.S. has said. It is the exact opposite of a humane approach to immigration or to securing our borders.”…

…The Department of Homeland Security called in Coast Guard medics to help treat those who are sick. But Cabrera doesn’t believe the federal government is doing enough. He says other Border Patrol agents have contracted scabies and he fears it will spread quickly.

“It’s contagious, we are transporting people to different parts of the state and different parts of the country,” Cabrera said.

“Just the fact we are exposed to it, and so is everyone here in south Texas, it’s a great concern to us,” Garcia said.

It’s unclear how many were treated for illness.

DHS has denied all requests for interviews with doctors and medical staff treating sick immigrants…

…It appears as if the Obama administration is orchestrating a crisis in the states in order to then push for the “comprehensive immigration bill” that some Republicans are eager to support. I’ve already seen many call this a “humanitarian crisis,” but the source of the crisis is the dysfunction of the countries where these illegals come from, and the unwillingness of Obama to enforce the rule of law.

 

 
Mickey Kaus: Cantor’s Mistake

Little did Cantor know that this exquisitely calibrated stand would prove to be about the most embarrassing position he could take — when the “kids,” often unaccompanied, started surging across the southern border, causing a humanitarian and policy crisis just as he was facing a challenge in Tuesday’s Virginia primary. Even the New York Times couldn’t help but notice that the young illegal migrants said they were motivated, not just by conditions back home in Central America, but also by the prospect that they’d qualify for Cantoresque amnesty. ”Central Americans, [said a Salvadoran immigration official] were left with the sense that the United States had ‘opened its doors’ to women and children.”…

…You could have predicted this. I did predict this. Democrats seem to be in willful denial about the incentive effects of amnesty just as in the ’60s they were in denial about the incentive effects of lenient treatment of criminals or the incentive effects of greater welfare benefits (which encourage people to do what you have to do to get welfare, including having out-of-wedlock kids). The difference is that in the ’60s there were plenty of Republicans around to remind voters of reality

Cantor Wants Youth Amnesty Deal With Obama

…“We can work on the border security bill together, we can work on something like the kids,” he said referring to his proposal to offer some undetermined variety of amnesty to the children and youths of millions of parents who entered the country illegally.

“So far, the president has just insisted that it’s all or nothing, [it is] my way or the highway,” Cantor complained. “That’s not going to happen,” he added…
