For one thing, they’re mostly not children:
…another major Guatemalan newspaper, El Periódico, reports that among the initial 1,000 Central American minors housed at Lackland Air Force base in Texas, two thirds-are from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, while 12% are Mexican. About 80% of the minors housed at the base are male, and 83% are over age 14.
This is consistent with numbers elsewhere along the border. Large numbers of them are just under 18, and many will reach their 18th birthday while in custody. Also, as they don’t have IDs with them, they’re often lying about their age.
And for the next part, I agree with a Democrat – those illegals won’t be leaving:
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), stated in an interview on Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Monday, that the illegal immigrants who have been released from detention centers across the southwestern United States will not show up for their court dates, and thus will not be sent back.
He estimated “over 8,000 individuals were released in the last two months” were released with court dates in south Texas alone, and the total number of illegals released is “over 40,000” and argued “after you travel thousands of miles, you pay of dollars, went through a very difficult situation, you get over here and they tell you to appear in 90 days, I would say the vast majority are not going to show up.”
He’s totally correct. They won’t show up.
Imagine as a US citizen you could break into Quebec, not speak French, not want to assimilate, yet the Quebec govt. would take care of you (even though their citizens oppose it), you’d be able to get jobs that pay 10x what you’re used to while undercutting Quebecois wages, you get health care paid for by the Quebecois who are taxed to pay for you, and you live and work in sanctuary cities for illegal alien Americans that enforce no laws against you, you’d have a group called “The Race” to argue you have an ancestral right to Quebec that would hire lawyers to sue anyone who opposes you, and yet the toothless RCMP sent a note saying you’re supposed to show up for a hearing to be deported. But they won’t pursue you. And the local law enforcement isn’t allowed to touch you.
Why would you show up to be deported? You can leech off their system, live a better life at their expense, and ignore pretty much any law short of murder, have no responsiblities to their society, and yet their society will provide for you because it’s suicidally brain dead. So why would you go to a toothless court to basically ask to be deported?
Answer: you wouldn’t.
Illegal aliens who are ORed (released on their Own Recognizance) do not show up to get deported by a judge. They stay in country. And right now, they expect to get amnesty – especially with an administration that’s putting on the kid gloves to deal with what amounts to an influx of pretty much military age males.
This flood of illegal alien “children” who are only children by laws written by naiive schmucks who don’t know anything about how “children” are used to exploit US laws – has all been overwhelming. The part of the country I live in has already been impacted by this nonsense, but there’s so much to write about it’s… just overwhelming. Expect to see several more posts on the topic soon.
Democrat Rep Cuellar is smart enough to know he’s in an election year and he’d best say something about illegal aliens. People who live on the border don’t like illegals (with the exception of a handful of businessmen who’d like to exploit them for labor). Mexican citizens on the border in Mexico don’t like them, Mexican residents of the US don’t like them, US citizens on the border don’t like them, and naturalized US citizens loathe them beyond words.
