• After Obama’s Amnesty, A New Wave Of Illegal Immigrants Seen Along Texas Border

    It was only a matter of time.

    Last August, Hidalgo County rancher Fred Cappadona told ABC Houston (as seen in the video above) that the uptick in illegal traffic was “overwhelming.”

    Now, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports that another flood of illegal immigrants–similar to the surge we saw six months ago–are pouring into Texas from Central America.

    “They’re not peaking as they were during the summer months, but we’re seeing upwards of 60 to 100 people a day,” said Brenda Riojas, a program operator for illegal immigrants at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in McAllen. That church was at the center of the last summer’s surge of illegal immigrants.

    Riojas suspects a similar increase of illegal immigrants must be seeking assistance from other shelters after coming into the country from other parts of Texas.

    Indeed, according to Sen. Tom Coburn’s oversight report released over the weekend, less than 3 percent of illegal immigrants will ever be deported and more than 700 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border remained unsecured as of 2014.

    Last week, Surge reported that more than 90 percent of the illegal immigrants who crossed the border last summer never showed up to their immigration hearings.

    It’s no surprise that after Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to more than 5 million illegal immigrants, that there are eyewitness reports about a new rush of immigrants darting across the border in hopes that they too can become legal U.S. residents.
