    Honduras’ First Lady Says She Will Collect Her Country's Child Immigrants

    Honduras’ First Lady Says She Will Collect Her Country's Child Immigrants

    Honduras’s first lady will travel to the United States to find and return the country’s unaccompanied minors who have recently flooded across the border, the president’s office said Wednesday.

    In an effort to track down 13,000 Honduran children who made their way to the U.S. through Mexico, President Juan Orlando Hernández has created a commission that includes transportation, migration and foreign affairs authorities. But immigration lawyers say Honduran officials will face several legal challenges before they can repatriate the children.


    A surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America has overwhelmed U.S. authorities in recent months. Between October 2013 and May of this year, nearly 50,000 children under 18 traveling without a parent or guardian were apprehended, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.


    Warehouses and military bases across the U.S. are being transformed into detention centers to accommodate the children. One location, in Nogales, Arizona, is holding about 900 children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. President Barack Obama has called it an urgent humanitarian situation and enlisted the Federal Emergency Management Agency to manage it.


    All of the children are in removal proceedings. Earlier this month, Obama announced that his administration was launching a program to provide approximately 100 lawyers for these children.


    The flood of minors was prompted by immigrants in the U.S., who have been sending for the children they left in their home countries, sometimes paying around $8,000 to “coyotes” who smuggle them through Mexico and across the border.


    In 2013, a 10-year-old girl from El Salvador was taken into custody by Customs and Border Protection, handed over to the Department of Homeland Security and then delivered to her Virginia-based, undocumented mother, according to court documents. Republican lawmakers and conservative media cited the case as evidence that the U.S. was growing increasingly lenient toward unaccompanied minors.


    While rumors of increasingly lenient immigration policies appear to have partly fueled the mass exodus from these countries, the U.S. government and immigration advocacy groups say explosive levels of violence in the region are to blame. The isthmus has become one of the deadliest fronts in the war against drugs, serving as a vital transportation hub and providing a constant stream of drug gang members who manage the trade. A 2013report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime cited Honduras as the country with the highest homicide rate in the world.


    On Sunday, Ana Garcia, Hernández’s wife, will travel to the U.S. in order to find the Honduran minors who fled the country. Garcia has called for parents to drop off identifying documents like birth certificates and photographs of their departed children at nearby government offices so the commission can assemble files on each of the minors.


    Garcia said her delegation will visit UNICEF and meet with Guatemalan and El Salvadoran diplomats. She will also investigate the conditions the detained minors are facing. Efforts are being made to ensure a fast, dignified and safe repatriation process followed by social rehabilitation programs at home, according to a press release from the president’s office.


    But it is unlikely that Garcia will fly back home with the children, according to immigration experts.


    “I know of no international law, immigration law or family law that would let a national government take a child away from their parent,” said Lenni B. Benson, professor of law at New York Law School.


    Every child who sets foot on U.S. soil has the right to make a case to acquire refugee status, says Benson. Even if, for example, a child had been orphaned, he or she would still have the opportunity to make a claim for protection. The Honduran delegation will face an uphill battle.


    “I think it’s political, I think it’s compassionate political,” said Benson. “What country wants to say it’s losing its youth?”

    “I know of no international law, immigration law or family law that would let a national government take a child away from their parent,” said Lenni B. Benson, professor of law at New York Law School. Is this guy being a smart ass comic? I don't know about some so-called international law. But the various US government child protections agencies are constantly taking kids away from their parents, when the parents are deemed to be irresponsible by the court.

    Consider this these kids are put into the care of known criminals, left to be transported across Mexico, sent across the border alone into a foreign country where they do not speak the language. If any American parents did that to their kids, the child would be taken away from the parents and made a ward of the state. How many US child protection laws have the illegal alien parents of these illegal alien kids broken? Let's see: perhaps child abandonment, child abuse, exploitation of a minor, and probably a half dozen other laws.


    This law professor is saying the Obama junta will use legal technologies to thwart the efforts of a foreign government to reclaim its own citizens. We are not talking about a rare hardship case, but a massive interference with a foreign governments’ effort to repatriate its own people. We know what the motivation is don’t we? Now that Obama has created the mass flood of foreigners across our border he wants to keep them here to remake the US population into a majority of future hardcore Democrat voters.

    Don't be fooled patriots, this is not compassion, it is not justice, it is not immigration; this is the most vicious cynical exploitation of children in the history of our country. Now that Obama is getting his extra future Democrats he is not going to let go of them -- this is not politics it is pure evil.

    Tell the gutless Republicans not to allow this manipulation of the legal process for the benefit of Obama's junta.

    Honduran first lady visits South Texas

    June 26, 2014



    McALLEN, Texas (AP) — The first lady of Honduras, Ana Garcia de Hernandez, is touring immigration facilities and shelters in South Texas learning the plight of thousands of Hondurans who have entered the United States illegally.

    Garcia de Hernandez met with McAllen Mayor Jim Darling on Thursday morning and was scheduled to visit several Border Patrol stations in the Rio Grande Valley. She's planning to remain in the area through Saturday.

    The Border Patrol has been overwhelmed in the region by the number of immigrants entering the country illegally. About three-quarters of them are from Central America, with the most coming from Honduras. More than 15,000 unaccompanied children from Honduras have been apprehended since October.

    Many of the immigrants say they are fleeing widespread gang violence and lack of job opportunities.
