Illegal immigrants lined up in droves on August 15 to apply for Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals, President Obama’s youth amnesty, but the number who will apply may be well more than double the first estimate.

The New York Times reported on Monday that 1.7 million illegal immigrant “youths” will likely apply for the amnesty and, then, to get work permits.

The program, two Republican legislators say in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, is likely to be rife with fraud because the government has not erected the necessary barriers to ensure that all the “youths” who apply for the amnesty are eligible for it.

Illegal aliens are largely poor and uneducated and a drain on the welfare and public education systems, a survey from the Center for Immigration Studies shows.

“Immigrants in the United States: A Profile of America’s Foreign-Born Population” paints a startling picture of the nearly 11 million illegals and their children.

 

The latest survey of immigrants to the United States shows their numbers increased massively under the last two presidents, reaching a record high in 2010. That’s just one of the trends noted in “Immigrants in the United States: A Profile of America’s Foreign-Born Population,” published by the Center for Immigration Studies. CIS gathered its data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. Those data show that immigrants from the Third World are swamping the United States and its public institutions.

 

The Department of Homeland Security will extend the president’s order to halt deportation of illegals to homosexuals if they have “family ties,” the agency announced last week. The move to protect what are now called “LGBT” (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) immigrants came after seven dozen Democrats went to bat for these illegals.

The move is yet another step toward total dissolution of American borders, and a continuation of the Obama administration's legal and political war against those who wish to stop illegals from crossing the border. Just weeks ago, President Obama unilaterally offered an amnesty to “young” illegals who are, he claims, for all intents and purposes, “Americans.”

 

The Obama administration and its immigration agencies are partly responsible for the rape, robbery, and murder of American citizens because they refuse to enforce immigration law. That is the upshot of a report from the Congressional Research Service (CRS), which the U.S. House Judiciary Committe released early this week.

Thanks to the administration, tens of thousands of dangerous criminals are roaming the streets, committing tens of thousands of terrible crimes they could not commit if the president would deport them.
