“Child” Illegal Aliens Will Be Allowed To Stay Indefinitely. Unexpectedly.

Few immediate consequences for child immigrants

WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands of immigrant children fleeing poverty and violence in Central America to cross alone into the United States can live in American cities, attend public schools and possibly work here for years without consequences.

The chief reasons are an overburdened, deeply flawed system of immigration courts and a 2002 law intended to protect children’s welfare, an Associated Press investigation finds.

Driving the dramatic increases in these immigrants is the recognition throughout Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador that children who make the dangerous trip can effectively remain in the U.S. for years before facing even a moderate risk of deportation.

Boy, I’ll bet nobody in the Obama administration anticipated this.  (Filed under: How stupid do they think we are?)

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. “Child” immigrants are 25 and under.

    Before I turned 26, I’d fathered a child, finished putting myself through college, killed my child’s killer*, done a three-year Army hitch, gotten a good-paying job out of the Army, paid off my college loans**, and was halfway through a master’s degree. I guess I must have been some kind of child prodigy.

    * Drunk driver. Beat him to death.

    ** I think. It might have been a couple months past my 26th birthday.
