In a surprising bit of news, the Obama administration has quietly released a huge majority of the illegal immigrant children who poured over the U.S. Mexico border earlier this year. Furthermore, they're making their homes in very well-to-do American neighborhoods. Of the nearly 38,000 kids that streamed into the country illegally, only 280 children have been deported.
Federal officials expect another huge surge of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to begin shortly after the temperatures go down.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The Health and Human Services Department released a list of 126 counties 29,890 of the illegal immigrant children were placed into, sometimes with their parents who are also in the United States illegally.
These neighborhoods include the Washington suburbs of Fairfax and Loudoun in Virginia and Howard and Montgomery in Maryland. Fairfax received 1,023.
States like California and New York were given large numbers of the unaccompanied children. Where experts expected many of the children to go, President Obama's home state of Illinois only received 175 children.
Federal officials expect another huge surge of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to begin shortly after the temperatures go down. One independent expert said that the second wave this year could include another 30,000 illegal children.
The year 2015 only promises worse. Federal officials who predicted that 90,000 illegal immigrant children will enter the U.S. this year from Latin America are projecting that to increase to 142,000 next year.
"The priority of the administration is to release the individuals to the United States," Longtime immigration expert Jessica M. Vaughan says.
Coupled by the tiny number of deportations, which Vaughn cited in a report this week, the "adoptions" only encourages illegal immigrants to rush into the U.S. believing that they will be able to stay.
In its list of county-by-county releases, HHS said that they keep the identities secret. The children are expected to attend future immigration proceedings.
