Unaccompanied children crossing the southern border into the United States still number in the thousands, probably the tens of thousands, even though the percentages are lower, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told Congress on Thursday.

“For the kids, unaccompanied kids, it’s running about 40 percent lower,” Johnson said. “I hope it stays that way, but we have to be prepared in the event it doesn’t.”

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) said he’s happy the percentages are down, but he pressed Johnson to give him the “total numbers.”

“Last year, 2014, the total number including the Mexican UACs (unaccompanied children), I believe, was 68,000,” Johnson replied. “If you take out the — and I’m doing this from memory now. If you take out the Mexican children, I believe the total number was about 58,000. I suspect, if it stays at the current rate, will come in at around 40 percent, 60 percent of 68,000, whatever that number is.”

    This is a military war tactic apparently an effort of Mexico to take over the United States. From most pictures I have seen they are not small children but defiant teenagers. These pictures indicate symbols and defiant actions hardly respectable to Americans.

    They need to be stopped anyway possible and those here returned, even if strong force is used. This is a war not a refugee issue.

    STOP all immigration before America is totally destroyed, The United States can’t even take care of it’s own much less the world !! STOP it anyway possible, if heavy war methods are needed use them.

    Our people in government are to worried about how many votes they will get from minorities and not the welfare and safety of America. While they spend our tax dollars to destroy their own county. .
