Illegal Immigration and the Transformation of America

Open-door policies have led to a surge in illegal immigrants crossing the U.S. border.

Prior to 2013, the number of unaccompanied minors entering into America stayed within the range of 7,000 to 8,000 per year. Last year, that number jumped to 40,000 and this year it’s projected to be around 90,000. What has caused this dramatic spike and what does it mean for America?

On June 15, 2012, President Barack Obama announced a new initiative to “lift the shadow of deportation” from eligible illegal immigrants, effectively giving them the opportunity to live and work in America without fear of being deported. On June 5 last week, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was renewed.

This executive action only applies to immigrants who have been in America for longer than 5 years, but its timing still correlates to a skyrocketing number of young immigrants crossing the border.

This escalating issue has caused the White House to admit June 2 that the “influx of unaccompanied alien children (uac) across the southwest border of the United States has resulted in an urgent humanitarian situation requiring a unified and coordinated Federal response.”

The President has said young illegal immigrants will be treated differently in America—and they know it. Coming to America now means the possibility of free citizenship, free health care and welfare benefits.

Here is what some others are saying:

“The recent surge of children and teenagers from Central America showing up at our Southern border is an Administration-made disaster …. Word has gotten out around the world about President Obama’s lax immigration enforcement policies and it has encouraged more individuals to come to the United States illegally …. Illegal border crossing is extremely dangerous and many of these children encounter drug and human traffickers along the way” (Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), June 2).”It is a direct consequence of the president’s illegal actions. 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” (Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to Breitbart, June 6).”The children’s surge is another consequence of the president making good on his vow to ‘fundamentally transform’ America. He is endangering the lives of thousands of children south of the border” (Washington Times editorial, June 9).
