Obama to expand refugee programs for Central American migrants amid new surge

Of course he is.
O laughs
From Fox News: The Obama administration will soon expand efforts to help Central American families and children legally immigrate to the United States amid another surge of migrants caught crossing the border illegally.
White House Deputy Homeland Security Adviser Amy Pope said Tuesday that the administration will expand in-country refugee processing for families coming from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and launch an effort to temporarily relocate some families facing the greatest threats to Costa Rica. The government is also broadening a nearly two-year-old program to allow some Central American children to reunite with parents already legally living in the United States.
Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said that program will now allow some unmarried siblings, in-country parents and other caregivers to move to the U.S. with a child approved for the program.
The efforts are designed in part to combat the crush of tens of thousands of families and unaccompanied children caught crossing the border illegally this year. But it is unclear how quickly the expanded efforts may impact the flow of immigrants trying to make their way to the United States illegally.
Since the start of the budget year in October, more than 51,100 people traveling as families and more than 43,000 unaccompanied children have been caught illegally crossing the Mexican border. The number of such immigrants has been steadily rising this year after significant decreases between the 2014 and 2015 budget years.
The Obama administration first launched the effort to allow child immigrants to legally come to the U.S. in December 2014. More than 600 have moved to the United States since then. Mayorkas said 2,884 kids have been approved for the program and more than 9,500 applications are pending.
In January, the administration first announced that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees would pre-screen would-be refugee families. U.S. officials will now handle more in-country processing for those families.
Pope said refugee programs in Central America are being expanded because “current efforts to date haven’t been sufficient.” The new programs, she said, are designed to help “promote safe and orderly immigration and border security.”

Pope said it is unclear how many families and children may benefit from the enhanced programs but officials expect requests for help to steadily increase as the programs get underway in the coming months. In the meantime, Costa Rica will also soon start accepting up to 200 people in immediate need of refuge at a time for up to six months.

This is the extent of the hate obama has for America, the land that allowed him to be what and who he is. This must be the way obama shows his appreciation to America for all he and his other half did to this country. Destruction and lies are their game for USA.

Illiterate folks with nothing, unable to speak English, no job skills, which will be perfect Democratic voters all on welfare and food stamps and Obamacare with their Obama phones. This is what the Democratic party is all about and they don’t care if anyone can find a job or be successful.

What’s going on in Costa Rica that requires the US to be taking their people in? Is there a revolution going on there? I know some people who live there permanently and have vacation homes there.

I wish Obama would start an “exit” refugee program. I would gladly move, to New Zealand, to escape what’s happening, and will happen, here. One only needs an iota of common sense to realize that the flow of illegals, refugees, and their progeny will only bring our country to its’ knees. With language and cultural barriers, these people (including Liberals, and various other groups w/their agendas) will destroy the young, fragile culture of the USA.The middle class will foot the bill. We are the new slaves in America.

Moving people away from their country is ridiculous with absolutely no rational logic to it. These people need to remain in their country and they must get involved in changing what’s happening in their country and stop expecting others to take care of them. There isn’t a refugee crisis anyway as this is just the global elites’ attempt at tearing down the walls of every nation in order to bring in their one world and total dictatorship. People of every nation must stand up and tell them “NO MORE – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”. Bringing them into the USA is also… Read more »

Barack Obama has gone out of his way to prove himself to be an Enemy of the American People. He has done everything he possibly could to destroy not only the American Republic, but the Culture and our Way of Life. He is a Traitor to All of Humanity. (And his Day of Reckoning is known but to God). All right, we all know this. But why is it that very few people can see the same about George W. Bush? Or that both political parties are wings of the same Bird? Our Ruling Elite, with its Magick, always strives… Read more »

Meanwhile we have a congress we elected to stop Obama but instead helps him bring in these illegals and in fact Ryan let a bill get passed to take illegals into our military like what can go wrong with that? God help us.

These people From Honduras and Central America are not enemies. They are displaced families. They are fleeing the violence created when Hillary provided arms to overthrow their government. Why did Hillary do this? Money. Bribes are collected through the Clinton Foundation. This is a humanitarian effort which is necessary to clean-up what US caused in first place. It goes without fanfare. It goes without questions. Hence, never an answer to the real ‘why?’ How about we jail Hillary and disgorge her ‘Clinton Foundation’ profits instead? Maybe the Clintons should be the ones to pay for this, apparently they collected substantial… Read more »
