Immigration Expert: Get Ready for 'Surge 2' From Central America

By    |   Tuesday, 24 Mar 2015 07:50 PM

The influx of children from Central American countries that made headlines last summer has never really stopped — only slowed — and a new wave should be expected this summer, says Jessica Vaughan, director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies

More than 12,000 children have crossed the border since October 1, the beginning of the current fiscal year, but few are being sent back, Vaughan said Tuesday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto."

Immigration and Customs Enforcement is turning over about 2,000 of the children into the country every month, according to documents obtained by The Washington Examiner.

"This supposedly is the slow time of the year but already we have very high numbers of people coming, and it shows that the surge really never stopped. It just lessened little bit," Vaughan said.

"The cities and towns that have been struggling with trying to accommodate all of these kids over the last couple of years really ought to brace themselves for the coming Surge 2 that is already in progress," she said.

Vaughan told the Examiner that border officials should catch about 42,000 unaccompanied alien children this year, which would be the second highest number on record.

Parents already inside the United States with children in Central America are still getting the message that it is a good time to have their children sent into the country because President Barack Obama has signaled he is only interested in deporting criminals, Vaughan told Cavuto.

"So if they send for their kids and have a smuggler bring them across they will be immune from deportation," she said. "At least that's the message they are getting through the policies of this administration."
