ILLEGAL nightmare living in squalor
Why the sudden influx? How did word get out? How is amnesty going to change any of it?
Tony Banegas, consul of Honduras to Arizona, told local media outlet KPHO-TV, "This morning they switched to burritos, but they complained the eggs were cold. They couldn’t eat them and even made them sick. They complained they had a burrito but had to throw it in the trash." He said, "What happened today is they added four showers. Some of the girls were able to take their first shower in 10 days. They’re planning to build 60 in the next few days."
According to CBS Houston, "vendors are being contracted to provide nutritional meals." In addition to this, recreational activities and counseling programs will be provided to the children at an unknown cost.
Minors at the new housing center in Nogales are sleeping on plastic cots while officials wait for 2,000 mattresses to arrive at the facility, according to the Associated Press (AP). Portable toilets and showers were also allegedly brought to warehouse, which has a capacity of 1,500. Around 800 children are currently living at the housing center, but the AP reported that 1,400 minors will ultimately be brought there.
Re: ILLEGAL nightmare living in squalor
Are these kids walking all the way here, from central america? Next we will be told we have to allow their parents here to be with them. What's going on?
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security told CNN that many of these kids came here on their own with no relatives in this country and no one to deport them to back home.
Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras are promoting policies by the Obama administration that defer deportation to minors brought to the United States as children by their parents — known as "Dreamers" — and those that are housing illegal children at military bases in the South and West.
"Almost all agree that a child who crossed the border illegally with their parents, or in search of a father or a better life, was not making an adult choice to break our laws, and should be treated differently than adult violators of the law," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is quoted in a story about a new two-year extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act published by Diario El Mundo in El Salvador.
Signed by President Barack Obama in 2012, the law grants temporary legal status to many young illegal immigrants, ending the threat of deportation for at least two years.
The policy, however, does not entitle the immigrants to state services. The law was renewed for two more years.
"With the renewal of DACA, we act according to our values and code of this great nation," Johnson said. "But the biggest task of comprehensive immigration reform is yet to come."
Meanwhile, La Prensa of Honduras discusses in a report how as many as 500 illegal minors are being housed at the Naval Base Ventura County in Southern California.
"The children will be accommodated for between three and four months, while their parents or relatives are located in the United States," the report says.
