Immigration Authorities: 66,127 Juveniles Detained So Far This Year

The department of U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that so far this fiscal year the agency has detained 66,127 unaccompanied children and teens on the southern border. This is nearly double the number detained by this time last year.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, by this time last year the border service had only detained 35,209 juveniles.

But many of these illegals are not being sent back to where they came from.

Already President Obama has been caught sending illegals all across the country without bothering to alert local politicians or state authorities.

In July Indiana Governor Mike Pence demanded that Obama reclaim the illegals sent to his state without the knowledge of state officials.

In another case, Georgia Governor Nathan Deal said he was outraged that Obama sent 1,100 illegals to his state without informing authorities.

“It is unconscionable that your administration failed to pick up the phone, email or send a letter to my office to inform us that these children were being sent to our communities,” Deal said in a statement to the president.

By some estimates, Obama has brought some 290,000 illegals into the country.

Worse, even as Obama has been indiscriminately shipping illegal aliens across the nation, some of them are bringing diseases with them.
