Central America Newspapers Tout Open US Door for Illegal Minors
Is it any wonder that children or adults would want to immigrate to America? I mean our way of life, even for our most poor, is of a higher standard than anywhere else on the planet. This picture sums up what makes folks want to be a part of the American dream. Look at Mexico, undeveloped, barren on the left and just mere feet across the border, you have a bustling city, brimming with hope and the idea that anyone can succeed.
With that being said however, it doesn’t excuse crossing the border and coming into America illegally. What needs to happen in “comprehensive immigration reform” is twofold. First, we need to control our borders and stop the flood of illegal aliens crossing into our country, and secondly, we need to make the legal process to become an American more streamlined, without the impossibly long wait times. Stopping chain immigration is part of this.
None-the-less, Barack Obama’s policies on the border are wreaking havoc for the border states in our country, with more and more children pouring into this country than they can even process. We reported on this very phenomena a few days ago right here at Conservative Hideout 2.0.
The thing about Liberal policies is that someone, somewhere, eventually down the line has to foot the bill. Well Obama’s ineptitude and childlike view of our country’s border policy is finally coming home to roost. The cities and states on the Mexican border are left holding the bag as they try to deal with literally tens of thousands of illegals who are pouring across our southern border. And those folks who have told that they won’t be deported are finding that, while they likely have a good chance to avoid deportation, they are forced to live in horrible conditions when they get here.
The reality is that many are finding themselves living in conditions that are scarcely better than what they left. Other than not having to worry about the gang violence and dangers from the drug cartels, these people are being stacked virtually on top of one another.

As we touched upon in that story, it is being reported that Central American newspapers are openly advertising Obama’s “open-door policy” as it pertains to illegal children immigrants.
Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras are promoting policies by the Obama administration that defer deportation to minors brought to the United States as children by their parents — known as “Dreamers” — and those that are housing illegal children at military bases in the South and West.
“Almost all agree that a child who crossed the border illegally with their parents, or in search of a father or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than adult violators of the law,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is quoted in a story about a new two-year extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act published by Diario El Mundo in El Salvador.
Signed by President Barack Obama in 2012, the law grants temporary legal status to many young illegal immigrants, ending the threat of deportation for at least two years.
The policy, however, does not entitle the immigrants to state services. The law was renewed for two more years.
“With the renewal of DACA, we act according to our values and code of this great nation,” Johnson said. “But the biggest task of comprehensive immigration reform is yet to come.”
Meanwhile, La Prensa of Honduras discusses in a report how as many as 500 illegal minors are being housed at the Naval Base Ventura County in Southern California.
“The children will be accommodated for between three and four months, while their parents or relatives are located in the United States,” the report says.
His border policies that are supposed to be “kind” to the children of illegal aliens already here in the United States is having the unintended consequences of thousands, if not millions of children from all over Central America making their
way to the United States.
“The administration of President Barack Obama has acknowledged he faces a serious crisis for the continuous arrival of children, mostly Central Americans, who are illegally entering the country on the border with Mexico.”
Besides Mexico and Honduras, the report notes that many of the children are coming from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.
“During their stay, in addition to accommodations and food, children receive English classes, play sports and participate in targeted programs while immigration authorities contact their families,” the La Prensa report says.
On Monday, the Obama administration said that it would begin housing as many as 1,200 illegal minors at the Army base in Fort Sill in Oklahoma.
So once again, we are faced with what happens when Liberals make policy based on emotion. Rather than tackle the problem and try to get to the cause of it, Obama just treats one symptom of it and in the process, creates even more problems for the next President to have to deal with.
Way to go, President Obama.
