DHS report: Only 0.1% of Central American miniors deported in 2013
A report leaked to Breitbart News from the Department of Homeland Security states that 99.9% of children from Central America who crossed into the US illegally in 2013 were not deported and are still here.
The report also says that the lack of deportations is probably a much more significant factor in driving Central American children to come to the US than violence or poverty.
The report, identified as “De-Classified” and “Law Enforcement Sensitive,” reveals the fact that only 0.1 percent of the Central American minors illegally entering the U.S. having been deported in Fiscal Year 2013, down from two percent prior, plays a significant role in why the current border crisis is occurring. The DHS-ICE agency report admits the fact that 98 percent are allowed to stay is a significant draw for the minors to come into the United States. The agency acknowledges that conditions in Central America play a role in why the wave is occurring, but directly contradicts the assertion that such conditions are the only significant reason the crisis exists. The report directly contradicts any assertion U.S. government refusals to deport illegal immigrants is not a significant factor in why the crisis is occurring.
The report further reveals that Central American nations are doing little to curb the flow of illegal immigration to the U.S. and attributes the lack of efforts in the host nations to stop the flow to the nations wanting their nationals to send money back home from the United States. The report also indicates that family members from the host nations already residing in the U.S. is a major draw for the current crisis. This indicates that illegal aliens already within the U.S. are possibly drawing more to illegally migrate north.
The report states:
Migration pull factors include reunification with family members already in the United States and successful migration attempts; that is, most (98 percent) OTM UCs are issued a Notice to Appear and not immediately removed from the United States. Last year, only 1,700 UCs were repatriated to their home countries.” The report also clarifies the statement: HSI-Intel assesses with high confidence that reunification with family members already in the United States continues to be a pull factor for UCs from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
The report also states:
No single factor causes OTM UC migration to the United States. Rather, several factors combine to cause this, including poor economies and violence in home countries, potential employment opportunities in the United States, family reunification, and success at not being immediately repatriated drive OTM UC migration to the United States.

In other words, the reasons the kids keep coming is not so much they are being driven by drug violence but because they are hearing from relatives already in the states that if you make it across the border, you can stay.
Other findings from the report are equally shocking:
—The same family members or sponsors are appearing several times to claim different children from the custody of U.S. authorities.
—The U.S. government time requirements and care responsibilities for the OTM minors are identified in a time-chart.
—Host counties are doing little to prevent their nationals from coming to the U.S. and are likely motivated to allow this due to a desire to have U.S. dollars going back to the host countries.
To say that what's going on at the border is a clusterfark would be too kind. Part of the problem is that they are being overwhelmed. But allowing "sponsors" and "family members" to claim several kids is irresponsible. What's the liklihood that some of those kids are sold into slavery or worse?
The report states that 97% of these kids are from three countries; Guatemala, El Salvador, or Honduras. Nearly half are males between 15-17 years old - prime age for gang recruitment. These kids are a crime wave waiting to happen - courtesy of the rancid policies of the Obama administration.
