Big Trouble For America’s “Minor” Problem

unaccompanied minors

Breaking news from the southern border is going to change the narrative of this election because there are more unaccompanied minors coming across than any time in history.

The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol shattered all illegal immigration records when in the first six months of 2014, 28,578 unaccompanied minors were caught entering the United States.

So far this year, just four months in, we are already at 27,754.

Remember these are children who are apprehended. This does not take in to account any that were not detained by Border Patrol.

The totals for this year could be around 100,000 unaccompanied minors. This is just the minors. This doesn’t take into account the hundreds of thousands of adults that are coming in, or the thousands of kids who accompany them.

The illegal immigration debate hit a highpoint in 2014 when we all and unprecedented amount of illegals flooding our southern border. It was a state of emergency.

Things slowed down on the border last year, but this year the unaccompanied minor numbers are up over 78%. The overall immigration numbers show similar growth.

This issue isn’t going away and it could be the kind of news that will help Donald Trump and his call to build a wall.

These troubling reports are coming at a time when we have seen the Border Patrol shrink under President Obama, and in some cases taxpayers are paying for the transport of illegals to other parts of the country to be with their families.

Just imagine what would happen if somehow the Democrats pull some political magic and allow illegals or undocumented immigrants to vote. It is highly doubtful that they would ever vote Republican and it would forever turn this country blue.

With scenarios like that, the wall sounds better and better every day.
