With just two months to go before Donald Trump takes office, desperate activists are calling for Barack Obama to free thousands of illegal aliens in the U.S. trying to claim asylum before he leaves the White House.
Breitbart reported that around 4,000 illegal immigrants, many of whom are children, who left Central America for the United States are currently in detention facilities in Pennsylvania and Texas. A pro-illegal immigrant group claimed that right now there are “a record” 41,000 illegals in detention facilities.
The 2016 influx of illegal aliens from Central America exceeded 117,000 by Oct. 1, breaking the previous record. One immigration officer said this surge “is the worst we’ve ever seen,” with illegal aliens released “into the wind never to be seen by us again.”
“Immigration advocates want the president to either end the practice of detaining families altogether, as they’ve been requesting for years, or direct Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to release families with a notice to appear before a judge on their own recognizance,” Bloomberg News reported.
Since over 90 percent of illegal alien families and unaccompanied alien children (UACs) skip their removal hearings, calling for them to go before an American judge is as good as just letting them enter the U.S.
Another activist said illegal aliens are heading for sanctuary cities such as riot-ravaged Baltimore and New York City in order to evade immigration authorities, adding, “there’s literally not enough commercial bus space to get the people out. They’re all terrified.”
Illegal aliens and activists are in panic mode right now because they know Obama’s executive amnesty for the some 1.4 million illegal aliens under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) will likely be repealed the day Trump takes office, meaning the president-elect’s administration will have their identities, addresses, and their admission that they entered the country illegally.
During his campaign, Trump said his administration would have a “zero tolerance” for illegal immigration.
“Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation – that is what it means to have laws and to have a country,” Trump said.
