Arizona's tough-as-nails Gov. Jan Brewer complained on Friday that she is angry with President Barack Obama's immigration policy in which federal agents transfer Mexican and Central American illegal aliens from Texas to locations in her own state.
Gov. Brewer accused the federal officials of "dumping" more than 1,000 illegal alien children this weekend in Arizona instead of having them turn around and go back home. And according to the governor, the feds have no intention of stopping this practice.
Local news outlets had begun reporting this arguably unlawful practice last week, with hundreds of illegal aliens -- some of them felons since they've re-entered the U.S. after their deportation -- transported by planes and buses originating in Texas and offloaded at locations in Arizona.
Upon discovering this secret program of "alien dumping," Gov. Brewer sent a letter to President Barack Obama blasting the program and asking questions about its legality.
“This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains [sic] unsecure – now apparently intentionally - while this operation continues full-steam ahead is deplorable,” Brewer said in a press statement.
Brewer accused the Obama administration of failing to inform her or members of her administration about the questionable practice of "dumping human beings as if they were yesterday's trash," said former police captain Peter Lassosa.
Brewer claims she has complained about the federal program to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and demanded that President Obama to end this surreptitious program.
“I am disturbed and outraged that President Obama’s administration continues to implement this dangerous and inhumane policy, meanwhile neglecting to answer crucial questions our citizens demand and deserve," she said.
The majority of the illegal immigrants in question come from Central American countries and poured into Texas via the Rio Grande Valley, some claim, because they hope to be able to benefit from proposed changes to immigration laws in the United States.
"While Obama, his minions and news media sycophants claim there has been a decline in number of illegal aliens sneaking into the U.S., the actual number of interdictions in Texas has shot up in south Texas," claims Robert Santiago, a former U.S. Border officer.
According to Santiago, U.S. agents in the Rio Grande Valley caught more than 150,000 illegal aliens in 2013, while in 2012 there were about 95,000 apprehensions.
President Barack Obama said that the enormous number of children illegally entering the United States is something that needs to be addressed with more than $1 billion in humanitarian aid.
Opponents of Obama's unilateral immigration decisions and what they termed "unlawful practices" have caused those entering Texas to not only be dumped in Phoenix and Tucson, but also as far north as New York State.
"After screening by DHS authorities, the family units will be released under supervision and required to report in to a local ICE office near their destination address within 15 days, where their cases will be managed in accordance with current ICE enforcement priorities," according to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement directorate.
