Poor and Poxed: Unaccompanied Illegal Aliens Flood Across Southwestern U.S. — #SecureTheBorder

The thought of sending your young child off on a dangerous journey, thousands of miles, through a country that is essentially a narco-trafficking dictatorship, boggles the mind.

Sadly, no doubt the children relish the adventure, having lived through poverty and degradation in their own poor, crime-wracked Latin American countries.

Whatever the cause, the Obama administration must take the ultimate responsibility for the hardship --- death and desperation --- that befalls these children. An astonishing degree of inhumanity. But that's the Democrat Party for you. Everything is about politics. Screw human decency.

At the Los Angeles Times, "More than rumors drive Central American youths toward U.S.":

A couple of weeks ago, sisters Karen and Sindy Laucel joined the exodus of youths from Central America, hoping to reconnect with their mother, who had left this farming village a decade ago in search of work in the U.S.

With so many heading north, now seemed the time to reunite. The teens filled a single backpack with three days' worth of clothes, and their mother paid a coyote, or guide, to take her daughters and a 10-year-old girl from the village to the U.S. border nearly 2,000 miles away.

Crossing the Suchiate River into Mexico on an inner tube and traveling mostly by bus, they seemed to be among the lucky ones. They avoided the extortion, rape and other crimes so prevalent along the route — up until the moment an immigration agent pulled them from a bus in central Mexico.

Held for a week in a shelter near Mexico City with dozens of other girls and boys, they ate pizza and watched telenovelas until they were dispatched back home.

"I cried and cried and cried," said Karen, 15. "Only when I finally saw all the other girls did I calm down." Sindy, a year older, has memorized her mother's phone number in North Carolina, and said she just wanted to get to know her. "I know her only by photos," Sindy said. Some Central Americans feel encouraged by rumors that children who cross into the United States will be allowed to stay. But other fundamental reasons fueling migration have remained unchanged for decades: family unification, hometown violence, inescapable poverty and lack of opportunity.
The Obama administration says it detained more than 50,000 "unaccompanied minors" trying to cross the border in the first half of this year. In fact, the smuggling of people to the U.S. is big business. Coyotes, who in Mexico are often descendants of some of the country's most vicious drug cartels, can charge $7,000 or more for a single migrant.

These networks may in fact be stimulating the current exodus by lying about the difficulties of the journey and giving false promises about what lies ahead, experts say.

"The majority of parents are there [in the U.S.] and they are asking for their children to join them," said Merlin Palma, a homemaker and mother of two waiting her turn at the Horcones beauty salon. "Coyotes take them, but it's dangerous. They promise you a thousand things, but on the way it's different. The kids suffer."
A humane presidential administration would take decisive action to protect these children. Migrants would be turned back at the border. The U.S. government would rebuke Mexico for its callous porousness, and the State Department would be warning foreign government of sanctions for encouraging their citizens to flood the American Southwest.

Of course, none of this is happening, because the Obama White House is mounting a demonic Alinskyite campaign of manufactured crisis, putting untold alien migrant lives at risk, to say nothing of the dozens upon dozens of American communities now fearing for their safety and trying to protect themselves from Third World diseases.

Utter Democrat Party moral bankruptcy. That's what this country has come to under the criminal Obama administration.
