They are coming in at the rate of 120 a day!
And, immigration lawyers stand ready to smooth their way! Senator Jeff Sessions was right when he said it’s all over, amnesty is effectively here.

From the Miami Herald (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’). The story begins with the usual stars of the story and their tales of woe!
Irene Granados celebrated her 16th birthday while walking through the desert two years ago trying to reach the United States — and safety.
Brothers Javier and Denis Girón, 13 and 17, floated on a raft across the Rio Grande last year — also in a bid to reach safety.
Granados and the Girón brothers were fleeing their native Central American countries where gang violence is spreading. The three are part of a surge in unaccompanied children and teenagers flowing across the Mexican border to the United States.
Numbers, of “kids” coming alone to the US, are on the rise according to the Catholic Bishops. We told you about the USCCB report here and reminded readers that the Bishops are making big bucks as Office of Refugee Resettlement contractors to care for some of the “kids.”
The USCCB (in their report) denied the “kids” were coming due to the lure of Obama policies; this article puts a lie to that assertion.
A report issued in November by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) showed the sharp increase. Every fiscal year between 2004 and 2011, the report said, the number of children detained by immigration authorities averaged about 6,800. But apprehensions jumped to more than 13,000 children in fiscal year 2012 and to more than 24,000 in fiscal year 2013.
Up to 120 unaccompanied youths are arriving each day, and some estimates suggest that the annual number could soon reach 60,000, according to a Feb. 21 story in the Los Angeles Times.
The “kids” expect amnesty to pass Congress and be signed into law! Gang violence back home just the excuse!
Immigrant-rights activists say more and more unaccompanied minors are arriving for various reasons. Many are fleeing gang violence, like Granados and the Girón brothers. But children are also being sent by families who believe they could qualify for immigration reform — if Congress ever acts on it — or for President Barack Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program known as DACA. [The article goes on to explain that the stars of this story do not qualify as "dreamers."---ed]
If they are too old to be “dreamers,” the “kids” in this story do qualify for green cards with the help of immigration lawyers waiting to serve them!
But some of the children arriving now can qualify for a green card if it can be demonstrated in juvenile court that the child has been abandoned, abused, or neglected. By demonstrating any of those three elements, the court can issue a dependency order. When children are adjudicated as dependent, the court assumes jurisdiction over them and that qualifies them to be considered for green-card status.
Please continue reading the article because it gives a detailed account of how the “kids” get through the legal system and will likely never leave again.
Obama has put the screws to the Republicans who will not have the fortitude to deport the 120 “kids” arriving in America every day!
And, LOL! check out that Ms. Granados says she wants to be a doctor. I would like to have a buck for every time I’ve heard an illegal alien “kid” say they want to be a doctor—could they have been coached?
