    False rumors in Central America are fueling the current surge of undocumented young people being apprehended at the U.S. border. The inaccurate claims suggest the U.S. will give amnesty to young migrants from the region. As VOA's Brian Padden reports from Honduras, these rumors trace back to President Obama's 2012 executive order to halt deportations for some young undocumented immigrants already living in the United States.

    More Clever Treason from our President!

    He talks publicly about "Executive Order" Amnesty - and starts another flood of Central American Illegal headed toward our Border.

    Each of these immigrants will cost American Taxpayers - a minimum of $50,000 - if they are quickly deported - and ten times that - if allowed to stay.

    It is Obama's plan to punish Americans who resist his turning America into a Big Brother Welfare State.

    I voted for Obama in 2008.

    It was the worst mistake of my Life

    Actually amnesty for this influx of illegal alien children is not a false rumor. Most of these illegals never attend their deportation hearings and will never be sent back to their home countries so they are getting exactly what they want. The way to stop this new form of illegal immigration is to immediately send the illegals back across the border once they are caught. What is being done right now encourages more future illegal immigration.

    Obama not enforcing the laws and sending these women and kids all over the U.S.A is Amnesty so they are right, that is why they are coming here! Does Obama really think that once these people are in the U.S that they are going to leave or even show up to a court date? NOT!!!!

    Where did this idea come from? The answer is our own Liberals from The Democratic Party. They want to throw out the Constitution and change our country to a Socialist ran society But History is not their strong suite Because Socialism has been tried time after time and has never worked or never will !
