Feds sending hundreds of illegal immigrant children to Florida amid growing crisis

The wave of unaccompanied children illegally crossing the southern border with Mexico continues to overwhelm U.S. Border Control officials, and the number of states receiving the minors continues to expand.

With the Obama administration beset by the growing crisis, the CBS affiliate in Miami reported on Wednesday that several hundred children from Honduras were sent to Miami-Dade County.

“We have received about 300 students from Honduras over the past few months so recognizing the challenge, that crisis, we’re asking the federal government to intervene,” Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho told CBS Miami as he spoke about the impact the children will have on the public school system.

Florida state Rep. Jose Felix Diaz, R-Miami, added: “It’s unsustainable and unless the feds step in, we’re going to find ourselves in a very big crisis.”

The ABC affiliate in Orlando reported that more than forty children have been received at the Hope Community Center in Apopka, Fla., and they expect more in the coming weeks.

These stories are in addition to a Boston TV station report of planeloads of illegal immigrants being flown to Massachusetts, and a Breitbart News report that New York City is overwhelmed by illegal immigrant children.

Initial reports showed the Border Patrol was dumping children apprehended in Texas at bus stations in Tuscon and Phoenix, but Arizona is threatening legal action to stop the Obama administration from sending more, according to the Washington Post.

Arizona is not the only state that has been spurred into action.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced Thursday that he approved $1.3 million dollars per week for law enforcement and the National Guard to provide for additional border security — since the federal government can’t secure the border. Or won’t.
