New executive order: White House wants to bring US border to the illegal immigrant

Concerned about the dangerous journey through Mexico young adults from Central America must endure to get to the United States, the White House is looking at a plan that would bring the U.S. border to the illegal immigrant.

The New York Times reported Thursday that the Obama administration is considering a plan that would “direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds.”

With a stroke of President Barack Obama‘s pen, the executive action would effectively grant amnesty to the minors by treating them as refugees, equating the violence in their country to past humanitarian emergencies in Vietnam and Haiti.

The Times noted that many of the minors from Central America are “believed to be fleeing dangerous street gangs” — have they taken a look around the inner cities of America lately?

If enacted, the plan would do little to stem the flow of unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors now flooding the southern border, and will undercut Obama’s warning last month to the parents of these children that “they’ll get sent back,” should they make it to America.

The Times reported that the pilot program would cost up to $47 million for a two year period, and would extend to Guatemala and El Salvador, if successful.

The projection is based on 1,750 “refugees” being accepted — an improbable number given that more than 16,500 minors have traveled to the United States from Honduras since October, according to the Times.

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., speaking Thursday night from the floor of the Senate, warned the country of what may be coming:

“Know that we are facing an exceedingly grave threat of an unbelievable expansion of his unilateral executive orders of amnesty that go beyond anything we’ve ever seen in this country and threatens the very constitutional framework of our republic and the very ability of this nation to even have borders.”
