Although the Obama administration and Democrats on the hill describe the flood of illegal immigrants coming over the border as mainly Unaccompanied Alien Children, more images like the one below sent by Michael Dozier, an analyst from the intelligence gathering service GlobeCastR, are appearing.
This image shows a facility in Texas of many adults, some of whom are seemingly accompanying children in these processing centers as well.
President Barack Obama told Congress he will move on immigration reform himself through executive orders, since it appears that the legislative branch will not budge on the issue. One of his first EOs will likely be to expand on his 2012 order which delays deportation for potentially millions of younger illegal immigrants.
Obama will also ignore Congress on immigration reform by focusing on and expanding upon his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) memorandum, Federation for American Immigration Reform spokesman Ira Mehlman told Fox News. DACA allows young illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S. if they were brought into the country illegally by their parents and were not convicted of a major crime.
“I expect him to continue to ignore U.S. immigration law,” Mehlman said. “This can all be traced back to the DACA program… under the guise of not splitting up families.”
Obama also requested $2 billion in emergency funds to handle the surge of illegal immigrants crossing the border from Mexico. According to CNN, a White House official claims the funds will go toward securing appropriate space for the detention of children and stopping the wave of immigrants coming in.
