Honduran Official: Obama Amnesty Rumor Driving Minor Immigrant Surge

Honduran Official: Obama Amnesty Rumor Driving Minor Immigrant Surge

Voice of America spoke with Alexander Leiva of the Honduran Ministry of Labor and Social Security during their report on illegal immigrants getting captured and processed though a center in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Leiva pointed to the false rumors of amnesty for children as the direct cause of the current flood of illegals entering the United States and said, “That is if they immigrate with a minor, they would get special or preferential treatment, so they can go in and work in the United States, and that is completely false.”

Voice of America reported, “These rumors trace back to President Obama’s 2012 executive order to halt deportations for some young undocumented immigrants already living in the United States.”
