DREAM Act Blamed for Spike in Immigrant Deaths, Young Illegal Immigrant Arrests
"The Obama Administration has blood on its hands."
Despite an overall drop in illegal immigration nationwide, there has been a huge spike in the number of undocumented immigrants found dead in the south Texas brush country this year, and a disturbing number of the illegals found dead and alive attempting to sneak into the U.S.in the past three months have been young people.
1200 WOAI news reports some who deal with illegal immigration blame the DREAM Act, and talk that young people in the United States illegally may receive legal residency or even a path to citizenship in a second Obama term.
“Ever since this dialogue from Washington began about the DREAM Act, and conversation about no internal enforcement, the numbers and the traffic has at least tripled,” said Mike Vickers, who operateS a thousand acre ranch in Brooks County, southwest of Corpus Christi.
One border security official who asked not to be identified told 1200 WOAI news that he has talked with many of the young illegal immigrants who have been detained, and he confirms Vickers’ statement.
“These young people have been told that if they just get into the United States, President Obama will grant them legal status,” he said, pointing out that the immigrant smuggling gangs in Mexico, which are often wings of infamous drug cartels like Los Zetas, are spreading that claim to try to convince young people to pay them between $2,000 and $7,000 per person to smuggle them into the U.S.
Border Patrol figures confirm that the number of illegal immigrants found dead in south Texas was up 200% in the federal fiscal year that ended August 31. 107 people have been found dead in Brooks County alone in the past year, and Vickers says that doesn’t include what he suspects are many people whose bodies have never been found in the remote ranch country.
“I myself have found a number of children out there,” he said. “Most recently, I found a 10 year old girl and a 12 year old girl who had been left behind by immigrant smugglers,” he said.
Vickers says there is no doubt in his mind why these young people are risking their lives to sneak into the United State.
“I think the Obama Administration has blood on it’s hands,” he said.
