We began documenting two months ago the “border crisis” of unaccompanied alien children, UAC’s, was a pure ruse, a figment. Constructed simply to create the optics of crisis and support the demand for comprehensive immigration reform prior to the congressional recess.
Evidence continued to mount week after week as we followed the money flowing out of the DHS and HHS agencies to various left-wing social constructs who were profiting from the scheme. Panic and alarm sounded as $3.7 billion was demanded by Obama to cope with the non existent “border crisis” – couched more favorably as a “humanitarian crisis”.
Three weeks ago we shared the fact that well over 40,000 reported UAC’s were missing from this years record keeping. The facts catching up with the ruse.
Well, the truth was/is they’re not technically missing because they never existed in the first place. DHS, which compiles the reports coming from the Border Patrol, and then gives the statistical summaries of the reports, had artifically inflated the apprehension numbers to support the White House narrative.
However, DHS, or more accurately Jeh Johnson, could not divert the end user of the apprehension reports, The Executive Office of Immigration Reform, the entity who controls the court dockets, from recording the missing reports.
Comparative FOIA’s into the recording agency, The Border Patrol, and the end user, The EOIR, showed the statistical ruse.
The reports were missing because they were never written; they were never written because the UAC’s were not actually real.
Now today the reports surface the White House “Administration” has quietly abandoned the search for the crisis housing. The removal of the crisis housing search is a consequence of the reality the UAC’s do not exist:
WASHINGTON DC – The Obama administration has quietly abandoned its aggressive months-long search for emergency shelters across the nation as the number of children illegally crossing the southern border alone continues to drop.
At the same time, three facilities at military bases in Texas, California and Oklahoma set up as shelters are no longer housing children from Central America.
An official with the Department of Health and Human Services, which led the search for shelters, said there’s been a decrease in the number of children apprehended at the border and an increase in the number of children sent to live with families or friends. (more)
Eventually the TRUTH comes out. It always does. The only question becomes “is anyone paying attention to it” ?
AS WE EXPLAINED LAST MONTH – Readers will note that since the word of the border crisis hit the media our research has indicated the entire construct of a humanitarian crisis for children is a ruse. There simply are not mass influxes of Unaccompanied Alien Children. For almost two months we have been repeating that it’s all a fraud – the influx is families, or more specifically women with children.
There is no border crisis about unaccompanied alien children – period. Sure there are “some” unaccompanied minors, but no-where near the figures that are bantered about in the media. Not – Even – Close.
Now the evidence to support all of our research begins to surface.
National Review Online presents an interesting article about almost 40,000 missing receipts for Unaccompanied Alien Children between the Border Patrol apprehension tickets reported, and the Executive Office of Immigration Reform (the immigration court system that gets those tickets for processing).
To flush out the disparity between fiscal years and time lags in court processing several years of data can be added together to analyze and compare.
According to the Border Patrol reporting (chart above) if you combine fiscal years 2013 and 2014 more than 85,000 “recorded apprehensions” of Unaccompanied Alien Children. Yet according to EOIR only 41,592 apprehension reports were received for Unaccompanied alien Children over the same time period (chart below).
That’s a difference of 43,000 UAC’s over two years.
What gives ?
It gets better. Additionally from the article:
…” […] EOIR has recorded 20,814 receipts marked as juvenile in fiscal year 2014 as of June 30, but Border Patrol recorded 57,525 apprehensions of unaccompanied alien children during the same time frame.
This means immigration courts have receipts for fewer than four out of every ten unaccompanied alien children apprehended by Border Patrol this fiscal year.
Mattingly said EOIR stands behind the numbers of receipts it has recorded, but would not speak about the difference between the number of juvenile receipts and CBP’s apprehension data”… (link)
That’s a difference of 37,000 UAC’s this year alone.
The NRO article goes on to discuss the discrepancy as a matter of bureaucratic bungling exposing how inept the immigration processing, and/or processers, is/are. But NRO never stops to ask the question – what if the discrepancy is simply because of FALSE DATA?
Because that false claim, or false data, is exactly what our research indicates.
This entire “crisis” of unaccompanied alien children (UAC’s) is purely trumped up by the White House, and sold by a duplicitous media, to advance a demand for comprehensive immigration reform.
But who would be fudging the numbers to give a false impression of a crisis?
Again, from the article:
…” […] Within DHS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have the authority to charge unaccompanied alien children”….
An ICE spokesperson declined to comment on this story, and a USCIS spokesperson referred questions to DHS, which did not respond to requests for comment. A CBP spokesperson responded to NRO’s requests in an e-mail with a link to apprehension data publicly available on CBP’s website but did not provide comment about the number of NTAs issued to illegal-immigrant children….(link)
Yep, as we have continued to share it’s the Department of Homeland Security, DHS, who holds the keys to the data vault.
…..And who did President Obama give those keys to ?
Yup, that would be $3.7 BILLION DOLLAR Jeh Johnson.
WASHINGTON DC – Federal officials testified Thursday their agencies have been overwhelmed by the surge of illegal immigrants in the Rio Grande Valley.
Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said two key agencies in charge of border security are about to run out of money unless Congress approves a $3.7 billion emergency funding request from President Obama.
“At our current burn rate within the Department of Homeland Security, ICE will run out of money by mid August,” Johnson testified, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“Customs and Border Patrol will run out of money in mid September,” he warned.
Johnson said surging transportation costs and the need to build additional detention facilities has depleted his operating budget.
Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell said her department is running out of beds for the tens of thousands of children who have crossed the border illegally from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. (read more)
You see, back in June of 2011 DHS Jeh Johnson was the Chief Counsel for the Pentagon -and part of what’s called the administration’s “Office of Legal Counsel” (OLC)- when a little controversial issue came up with President Obama and a country called Libya.
A pesky issue surfaced surrounding presidential authority to engage in military action without congressional approval, and then remain engaged beyond the 30 day legally required timeline for notifying congress.
The President’s OLC is essentially his “plausible deniability” tool if ever challenged as to the legality of executive branch overreach or power. The OLC act as one of the concentric walls around the executive office in the event a penetrating scandal develops.
Let’s just say the DHS post was a reward for Johnson’s, well, willful blindness. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say-no-more, say-no-more.
“How many do we need”? “Well, I see, um, e-l-e-v-e-n-t-y six unaccompanied alien children… yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket”.
Again, just for emphasis this issue of the 40,000 missing kids is not an issue of 40,000 missing tickets or reports. [Have you ever seen those poor Border Patrol folks filling out the ledgers?]
This is NOT about 40,000 missing tickets.
This is about 40,000 missing “UNACCOMPANIED” children. Only missing from official record keeping because they never existed in the first place.
The kids are all ACCOMPANIED.
ACCOMPANIED by their parents, aunts, uncles, and families….
