Created crisis: Border problem orchestrated, says Judicial Watch

A public interest group that investigates government corruption is concerned about the humanitarian crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, where thousands of children continue to cross into the country. 

"The administration's track record on immigration is to not enforce immigration law to the extent it can get away with. So I think that's probably what's going to happen here," says Sean Dunagan, senior investigator for Judicial Watch

Border Patrol agents say the illegals are coming because they believe President Barack Obama will grant them amnesty.

A Fox News story, citing Border Patrol statistics, stated that 162,000 people from countries "other than Mexico" have entered the United States across the southern border since last October. That’s a nearly 100 percent increase from the previous year.

The surge of illegals includes 47,017 unaccompanied minors from Central America, the story also stated.  

The administration insists that all of the illegal alien minors will be put in removal proceedings and that none qualify for the president's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which grants amnesty to those who came to the U.S. as children "through no fault of their own." But it has also asked Congress for $2 billion dollars to fund their stay.

"It seems to be that the administration is trying to make current immigration law look as cruel and inhumane as they possibly can to possibly build political support for some additional amnesty program," he says. "I absolutely believe that it's being engineered and exploited to try force action into bad policy decisions and bad votes on the issue."

Dunagan says the crisis is getting so bad that U.S. Border Patrol agents are being recruited to serve as babysitters for the influx of illegal alien minors, leaving fewer agents to try to prevent terrorists and weapons of mass destruction from sneaking into the United States.

"This diversion away from normal patrol responsibilities will result in an increase of drugs and migrants illicitly crossing our border,” she said.
