Jorge Ramos Foresees “Explosion of Migrants” as Word of White House Border Policy Spreads in Central America

Jerry Kammer, Center for Immigration Studies, June 15, 2014

For several weeks, despite mounting evidence to the contrary, the Obama administration has insisted that its policies have had little influence on the surge of Central American children–alone or with parents–across the Texas border. The White House Domestic Policy Council, under the direction of Cecilia Munoz, has asserted that the swelling influx (and growing humanitarian crisis in South Texas) is actually a response to the violence and poverty in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

That strategy has taken a series of blows over the past week, with the publication of internal government memos and a major story in the Washington Post describing U.S. policy as a powerful magnet for illegal immigration. Jorge Ramos, anchor on the Spanish-language television network Univision, on Sunday ratcheted up the challenge to White House credibility as he interviewed Munoz, along with the mother of a Honduran youth who recently crossed the border illegally and Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Democrat whose Texas district includes a large swath of the porous border.

After listening to a Cuellar description of the situation at the border, Ramos offered this incredulous summary of both the administration’s policy and its inevitable effects on illegal immigration:

So, the official policy of the United States, as you have seen it in the state of Texas, is that whatever Central American child who comes to the United States is not going to be deported? Aren’t we sending an extremely powerful message to Central America that will mean that many more children will continue to come?

Later he added that if word of U.S. policy spreads, “There is going to be an explosion of migrants.”

Ramos also discussed the border chaos with the mother of a 15-year-old Honduran boy recently detained by the Border Patrol. Marlen Mena Bautista said her son had decided on his own to come to the U.S., probably because he had heard stories of U.S. leniency at the border. Here is part of their exchange:

RAMOS: Do you have the perception that once children cross the border to the United States, they won’t be deported?

BAUTISTA: That is what is being said in Central America, almost all the time . . . Almost everyone is saying it.

RAMOS: So what is being said in Central America . . . is that they don’t deport children . . . So once they enter this country, they stay in this country?

BAUTISTA: Yes. I imagine that is why he decided to come.

In his interview with Munoz, Ramos did not directly raise the issue of White House insistence that its policies have had no significant role in the crisis. Instead, he pointed to a recent statement by the president of Honduras that his country would work to make sure the United States does not violate treaties that protect those fleeing from violence, then added: “The impression is . . . clearly, that a child who crosses the border to the United States is never going to be deported despite having a deportation order.”

Munoz said that while some of the children are being reunited with family members in the U.S. “they are in deportation proceedings, and many of them will have to go back.”

Ramos asked a pointed question, referring to the 24,000 Central American children detained last year by the Border Patrol. “How many of them have been deported?”

Munoz responded: “They are still in the process. It is a lengthy process. So I can’t tell you the number exactly. But what I can tell you is that under the current law and the bill passed last year in the Senate and also under DACA [the policy of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival decreed by President Obama], there is not an option for these young people. In every case there is no a possibility of obtaining permanent status.”

  • Knowing Obama’s oft-stated desire to flood the US will non-white criminals and then legalize them, this is deliberate policy and not some unfortunate “unintended consequence”.

    The left loves to make debates about immigration ad hominem. The debate, actually, ought to be about the effect immigration has on the historic American nation and living standards.

    • Dr. Möbias

      Good point. Whenever immigration is discussed it is always from the POV of the immigrants themselves, never from native born whites who bear the brunt and the impact unlimited 3rd world immigration has on them.

      • Gus Baker

        Even you guys call them “immigrants”, they are not immigrants, they are illegal aliens.

  • When the truth comes out years from now, the illegal surge will be proved to be Obama’s secret plan. Our tax dollars are paying for US agents throughout Central America to recruit these squat monsters to come here. There was a picture of a train I saw recently, with hundreds of them crowded on the roof and hanging off the sides, as the train rumbled down the tracks toward the US. It’s organized, it’s illegal, and Obama should pay through arrest and trial for his criminal acts.

    • Jerrybear

      He’s having illegal aliens to the White House to have a celebration for them. He’s nearing the end of his second term. He’s got nothing to lose. Just wait and see the open treason and crimes the Obama administration will commit in the coming years.

  • Ronald

    If the nation had heeded Lincoln’s advice to resettle the Africans in Central America, I wonder if the nation would be facing this problem today? Probably not.

    • Pro_Whitey

      That was Jefferson Davis’s advice, and stated goal, resettlement, or colonization, as he put it, not necessarily back to Africa, but definitely out of the U.S. He also sought the eventual abolition of slavery. It was Lincoln who chose war instead, and compromised with those who thought the races were equal. He made statements in favor of colonization, but if he was really for it, he should have worked to bring it about in the states still in the union, rather than declaring war on the seceded states, thereby increasing the number of seceding states and nearly surrounding D.C. with seceded states.

    • Gus Baker

      Indeed. However I would rather there never had been slavery in the first place, I’d like to strangle all those idiots who brought them here to being with.

  • Extropico

    “Even a Univision anchor understands the problem better than Obama does.”

    Haha. On this matter, Obama knows exactly what he is doing.

    He fully intends to eradicate the White majority and he double dares you to notice his contempt for YT and the Rule of Law.

    • Brakedust

      His white momma hated her own kind. He understood that early on.

  • MekongDelta69

    Even a Univision anchor understands the problem better than Obama does.

    Hell – My Grandmother understands the problem better than this dictator — and she’s been dead for about 40 years.

    Don’t ever forget – EVERYTHING that NoBama does (whether foreign or domestic), is done ON PURPOSE.

    He SAID he wanted to “fundamentally transform the country” right to your face.

    He meant it – and he’s doing it.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    Mass third world immigration is the elitist declaration of war on the historic American nation. The only way to stop it is to acknowledge that declaration of war and fight back any way you can.

    • adplatt126

      My cracka. LOL.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Time for every white to stock up on guns, ammo, and even body armor and other gear, then become proficient in their use. You can be sure many of these invaders are armed gangsters who will declare war on whites. You can be sure they are being imported here because the hostile, non white, non-Christian, enemy aliens controlling the government want a force who will gladly carry out their planned disarmament then extermination of white Americans. They will do what king Obama and his string pullers tell them to do without question. These squat monsters also are very stupid, they equate all whites with the ones who took over Mexico and central America, Slavs like me have nothing to do with that, but we are going to drench American soil with their blood, and we are going to grease tracks with their guts.

    • I can’t have those anymore, but I have two nice pictures of my own:

      • LACountyRedneck

        Not sure what you mean by you not being able to have them but there are airguns these days that can pack a punch, and they are not considered ‘firearms’ in most areas, yet.

    • Maybe I could get a nice DeWalt nail gun.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Nice long range nail gun. You can toenail studs three football fields away with that one.

  • Adolf Verloc

    I always thought “The Camp of the Saints” was a work of fiction. The only mistake that Raspail made was in identifying India and China as the main sources of invaders. They’re doing comparatively well – it is Latin America, Africa and the Middle East that are the problem.

  • borogirl54

    The only way to stop this is to deport them. After several hundred are deported, that will stop others from trying.

    • Dr. Möbias

      The only way to stop them is to stop them before they enter.

      Walls work and work well, especially if they’re guarded with deadly force. Ask Israel how well their walls work against 3rd world Africans.

  • Seminumerical

    Thank goodness I live in Canada. My desire to retire to one of the midwestern or western states has been killed stone dead. I have lived in Chicago and Santa Barbara. I know what is coming.

  • IKUredux

    We don’t have to put up with this. Our current “government” is not for the people, or by the people. We reserve the right to rebel. As humans, we have the right to do whatever we deem necessary. No one is the boss of us. We fought one revolutionary war. There is no quota on revolution.

    • Dr. Möbias

      Tell that to every white you know. Too many have drunk the kool-aid and joined the enemy camp, voting for their own demise.

      There is nothing worse than an anti-white white.

    • LACountyRedneck

      Amen. Well said. What they are doing is unacceptable. I spread the word every chance I get.

  • Dr. Möbias

    Munoz said that while some of the children are being reunited with family members in the U.S. “they are in deportation proceedings, and many of them will have to go back.”
    Anyone here believe that?

  • Truth Teller

    I have always thought that Lincoln’s “plan” to send the OFEs to africa or haiti or central America was just an election year promise to placate the working class who knew they would be replaced by cheaper blacks if the slaves were freed.
    I know he did send a friend as ambassador to what was then some sort of federation of Central American countries to discuss deporting the blacks to Central America. The countries all totally refused with horror.
    But we are stuck with them now.

  • Seminumerical

    Yeah I went to T.O. several times last year. I was actually screened at Billy Bishop (formerly Toronto Island Airport) by a female security officer in a black hijab. The flood of foreigners is insane, but I am told that we learned our lesson and that immigrants meet much higher standards.

    We imported both English and French Carribean blacks into Montreal 30 years ago, and their sons naturally formed into English versus French speaking drug gangs, learning how to pose and strut from American movies. These little blacks would show up at the carribean festival (itself a stomach turning paean to diversity) and on one side of the parade route 15 year old Haitians from one jack-off gang called the Bo-Gars would lift their shirts to show pistols tucked into their waistbands to the Jamaicans on the other side. Of course white Canadian tax dollars paid to educate, house, and incarcerate these little thugs.

    I left Montreal after some of them poured gasoline over two white guys and set them on fire, on my street in the St. Henri district.

    But rural Canada is still as it should be.
