Illegal families surge across border; 2016 already worse than 2015

The number of illegal immigrant families jumping the border so far this fiscal year has already topped all of 2015, according to Homeland Security statistics released Friday that show the administration’s border problems continue to grow.

Some 6,788 people traveling as families were caught on the southwest border in May — a leap of more than 20 percent over April, and putting the total for the first eight months of the fiscal year at nearly 45,000.

That’s already well above the 2015 yearlong total of fewer than 40,000, though it’s short of the record pace set in 2014, when a massive surge exposed massive holes in the U.S. immigration system.

Federal and local authorities have struggled to explain the latest surge in families, but a government lawyer gave one explanation to a federal judge earlier this month, saying that the Obama administration’s own lax enforcement policies, set in part by the courts, have enticed ever more people to make the harrowing journey.

    Look liberals want them here. They are more democrat voters, drain the economy and don’t assimilat do they bring their culture into our neighborhoods everywhere. I have lived in several places in this country and maybe it’s Mr but there are more of them than Americans. These cities and states have assimilated into their culture. We’re losing ours even in schools. Theyvdint teach our history any longer unless it’s about how bad this country was and is. I’m old so intent worry much but young people wake up, by tweeting your children are grown you won’t have a country you can recognise.

    Homeland playing with their ding a lings. Americans don’t count Why not fire those not protecting us? Kinda like DOJ protecting us from terrorists? Why not hire people who can the job they are assigned? DC is a cesspool that needs drained.

    i rate him as very poorly

  • Snoopy says:

    If you can COUNT them, why the hell can’t you ARREST them???

  • ADRoberts says:

    Many reasons for Obama and the elite to do this.
    1. Most will immediately sign up for ALL the welfare programs. (They are not true refugees as most are young men of fighting age. And they certainly don’t have work skills that America needs. If we need a certain skill set, we should FIRST train our own)
    2. More votes for the Democrats. These people are certainly instructed in how to vote
    3. A certainty that most of them WILL be ready for the “jihad” call from the local imam or cleric.
    4. Getting Americans used to being SILENCED and not allowed to speak up to resist the tyranny of those the ELITE put into power.
    I am sure, you can think of others. But for certain, not a single reason is to benefit AMERICA.

    Never heard that slant on border crossers before–families crossing. Maybe this is more spin of anti-immigrants and bellyaching pols smearing the border patrol and ICE Immigration and Customs Enforcement again. It resonates if you think of each crosser representing a family, but hard to swallow because few ‘nuclear families’ are identified. Maybe a mother and child represent a family but that’s stretching a point. Some day people will recognize that we have a very long southern border with much empty space (between crossing points) that isn’t and will never be impervious. Sorry, big words. No wall has ever complete shut out people determined to cross it. Either supply more money for the project or praise law enforcement for doing a very good job with harsh conditions.

    If the government can’t do the job they were by law instructed to do , maybe they need the American people to do the job they can’t do, and we can let the admiistrations government agents find new jobs

    I always wondered what army Obama would use to destroy our Nation… between the invasion from the South and cranki’n out a-million or so Green Cards for Syrian refugees; I suppose that I have my answer.

    I guess all one needs to do next is arm them and tell’em where all of the ammo’s stashed… probably a Walmart because that’s where half of Mexico camps out anyway.

    Here’s the thing: We are a country of laws – without laws, there is chaos.
    – It is against the law to run a red light – if you do, you get a ticket, go to court, pay a fine, etc.
    – It is against the law to steal – if you do, you go to court and probably jail.
    – It is against the law fo kill someone – if you do, you go to court and jail, and maybe die.
    – It is against the law to kidnap someone – if you do, same story…arrested, court and jail
    – If you sneak into this country without going through proper procedure (which is illegal), you should be sent back to your home country. If you don’t want to do that, then you should go to jail.
    Pretty simple isn’t it?
    Further: if you don’t want a wall on our southern border to keep people from breaking the law and coming here without proper paperwork (which is illegal) – THEN TAKE DOWN THE FENCE AROUND THE WHITE HOUSE AND ELIMINATE THE SECRET SERVICE. Oh, but gee whiz, I hear they are going to make the fence higher to protect the POTUS – what about the wall to protect the citizens? Build it!

      Sounds like he intends to stay a while longer!!

      1. Dolores Adams says:

        I sure hope this POS doesn’t stay any longer. He should never have been there in the first place, but it was the ignorant people that voted for him.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          And a lot of dead and repeat voters played a big roll too! Hope this same game is not played for Hellary, but I’m afraid it will be, if so, ALL is LOST!!

          1. Dolores Adams says:

            When a person passes away, the family should have their name removed from the voter rolls.

          2. Juan Two Three says:

            Yes, because Medicare/Social Security is notified by the funeral homes, so why the hell can’t THEY talk together and use the same database?

          3. Snoopy says:

            But THAT would eliminate them being able to VOTE! And THAT would not fit the Damn-O-Craps’ agenda!!

        2. Juan Two Three says:

          When President Trump is elected in November, I hope and pray he gets even tougher on immigration than he is today! He can temporarily shut down any and all immigration AND kick every fuking ILLEGAL ALIEN in this country immediately, from over staying visitor visa, college visas, ILLEGAL ALIENS who are here now, grandma, grandpa, kids, mom’s, dad’s, all of them! Let them LEGALLY apply to enter the United States. This country can survive WITHOUT them paying taxes AND we should stop ALL Social Security benefits if you were here in the United States ILLEGALLY, no medical or welfare benefits, etc.! Get The Fuk Out and go back to your shithole country where you illegally came from!
          TRUMP IN 2016
          KILLERY IN PRISON IN 2016

          1. Dolores Adams says:

            I agree with all of this. But it doesn’t look like KILLERY will be in prison, unless something drastic happens.

      2. Juan Two Three says:

        Heard rumor last week that Obongoloid and his tribe have bought a mansion in the D.C. area!! He wants to stay around to cause more demise to America!

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          I wonder if it will have a High Fence around the border of it!

        2. PC Bob says:

          How ELSE to run Hillary’s admin? She is to be his 3rd term in office!

    2. Larry says:

      Well stated, and I ask myself these same questions and we sure don’t get a lawful legal answer. What happened to American law?

      1. PC Bob says:

        Two answers: Liberals and Obama

    3. Dolores Adams says:

      If anyone gets caught sneaking into Mexico, you go to jail. So why don’t they put these illegals that cross into the U.S. in jail?

      1. 3ronald1 says:

        Because our “administration (BO) and its cronies” won’t let the Border Patrol do its job. For sneaking into our country, there should be the choice of jail or going back where you came from until you follow proper procedure, period!

        1. Dolores Adams says:

          I guess I knew that. This BO is out to ruin our country and too bad people didn’t realize that before they stupidly voted for him twice.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    That’s all we need is more free loading diseased infested gutter rats, but Soros’s plan is working great, constant chaos and stagnate the economy with Illegals!
