Has Obama's relaxed Immigration Policies become a Magnet for Children Crossing our Border ILLEGALLY?

The number of children caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has surged over the last two years, raising questions about whether the Obama administration's changing immigration policies are creating a magnet. 
Statistics released late last week show 24,668 "unaccompanied alien children" were placed last year in the care of the federal agency that, by law, is responsible for them. That's nearly double the number from 2012, and nearly quadruple the number in years past.
As is often the case with immigration statistics, it's unclear what is driving the increase. The surge could be driven in part by better enforcement, and immigration officers doing a better job catching border crossers. 
But critics point to other factors. A federal judge in Texas claimed earlier this month that the Department of Homeland Security has been delivering children smuggled across the U.S.-Mexico border to their illegal immigrant parents. In June 2012, the administration decided to give a reprieve to young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. 
Though the latter would not apply to people who just arrived, critics say these policies send a clear message south of the border: The rewards of trying to cross into the U.S. outweigh the risks. (The Link is mine)

Of Course Our Border is a Magnet for Children...

ARE THEY SENT BACK? We don't want to turn away 'Dreamers' now do we...I DO!

There are plenty of Dreamers left sitting back in their native countries waiting for their turn to DO IT THE RIGHT WAY.

And if the kids are allowed to stay...Do you think the parents are going home?

The whole process id a BAD JOKE on OUR TAB.

No sob stories....ENFORCE OUR LAWS....PERIOD!
