Another month passes, another Obama scandal

Crime and corruption have been a staple of Central American life for decades. During most of the last decade, an average of 4,000 unaccompanied minors have entered the U.S. illegally across our southern border. But after Obama announced in 2012 that immigrants who entered the country illegally as minors before June 2007 could apply for deportation deferrals, the number surged to more than 10,000. In 2013, the number was 24,000. This year, the number, already at 57,000, is projected to reach 90,000. The number of adults is tens of thousands more.
