EPIC Report: Border Crisis Caused By Amnesty Seekers, Not Refugees

A new intelligence report obtained by Catherine Herridge at Fox News concluded that the border crisis is being caused by illegals seeking amnesty misunderstanding U.S. immigration policy, not violence in Central America.

The 10-page report conducted on July 7 was by the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC), which is headed up by the DEA and includes the Department of Homeland Security. “Its focus is on the collection and distribution of tactical intelligence, information which can immediately be acted on by law enforcement,” according to Herridge.

“Of the 230 migrants interviewed, 219 cited the primary reason for migrating to the United States was the perception of U.S. immigration laws granting free passes or permisos to UAC (unaccompanied children) and adult females OTMs (other than Mexicans) traveling with minors,” the report said.

PPD spoke to Guatemalan officials when the story first broke in early June, who told us that the Catholic Church and state-run media outlets had been advertising Obama’s policies as a “free pass” for them. Officials contacted the Obama administration last year to warn them of the imminent influx of illegal immigration, but the White House didn’t respond.

President Obama and other Democrats who have openly admitted their support for open borders have attempted to sell a false bill of goods to the American people, again. Since reports first began to surface, the left has claimed the border crisis was the result of violence in Central American countries that have been violent for decades, and that we should classify those who have crossed the border illegally as refugees.

“The violence isn’t new. The situation in those countries is not new,” Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) told reporters Tuesday. “These cartels have seen a weakness in the system. They’ve seen statements coming from the administration that they have used in order to just frankly increase the number of people coming over.

Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar and Republican Sen. John Cornyn, both lawmakers from Texas, introduced bipartisan legislation on Monday that would make the process of determining whether illegals should be deported quicker by reforming an antiquated immigration law.

The Helping Unaccompanied Minors and Alleviating National Emergency (HUMANE) Act would rewrite the 2008 bill signed into law by President George W. Bush. Under existing law, the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection and Reauthorization Act, or TVPRA, illegal immigrants from countries other than Canada and Mexico are turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services, which then release them to the custody of relatives or other caregivers as they wait for their cases to come up in immigration court.

However, over 90 percent of “unaccompanied minors” never show up and simply disappear, according to San Diego Border Patrol union representative Gabe Pacheco. Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake were recently criticized by the mainstream media for using the 90 percent figure loosely, but the reality is the government’s record-keeping practices are suspect to lawmakers. In 2012, alone, ICE was looking for more than 469,000 people who failed to appear.

Nationwide, according to immigration court officials in San Diego, roughly 33 percent of immigrants released by U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement (ICE) did not show up for their immigration hearings.

“It would provide a deterrence and stop the vast majority of these children and their families from initiating this journey in the first place only to find out it would not be successful by and large, and this would be the fix to solve that problem.” Cornyn said during a conference call Tuesday morning with reporters.

The intelligence assessment was not intended to be seen by anyone outside of relevant law enforcement officials, but suspiciously, the report cited data from the United Nations office on Drugs and Crime Statistics that found violent crime for Central America actually decreased. The United Nations earlier this week publicly pushed U.S. lawmakers to classify the illegal immigrants as refugees, despite knowing full-well the recent surge in border crossings had nothing to do with violence, which would make them eligible for such a status.

“There’s no doubt the message went out- go across border now the United States won’t do anything about it,” Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX) told Fox News.

The report was released as lawmakers who just visited Central America returned, and their statements also suggest that the prior criticisms of President Obama’s policies were valid.

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and others told reporters Tuesday that human smugglers — also known as coyotes – are exploiting Obama’s changes and refusal to enforce U.S. immigration law. The Obama administration decided in 2012 to practice prosecutorial discretion in cases where individuals were brought into the U.S. illegally as minors.

“It’s a critical situation and if we don’t deal with it urgently but well- done right- then we’re facing a crisis of just huge proportions,” Diaz-Balart warned.

The report represents the latest crumbling of a manufactured, D.C.-based narrative on the issue of immigration.

In June, the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers called the border crisis an “orchestrated and contrived assault” by a government with an agenda. But new polling shows the government’s agenda doesn’t mirror the interests of the American people.

“In fact, more Americans think immigration should be decreased than increased, and by a nearly two-to-one margin, 41 percent vs. 22 percent,” said Lydia Saad of Gallup.

Similarly, a new Rasmussen Reports poll found just 31 percent of Americans favor legal immigration, and that’s only if the border is secured first and the government effectively stops the flow of illegal immigrants. Further, 52 percent of Americans say the U.S. is not strict enough on illegal immigrants and companies who hire them, while a small 14 percent minority disagree.

    wants to even imagine what incorrigible act Obama, the dictator, will do
    next… but we have a duty to stop him, anyway we can. His loyalists—the
    parasites that thrive in our free-giveaway society, will always vote for his
    ideology, of getting free food stamps, free housing vouchers as well as cash.
    These are the citizens who have never worked hardly in their lifetime. But instead
    preferring to sit in front of the television and stuff their faces with pizza,
    while the rest of us pay the taxes—to pay for the freeloaders. Same with
    illegal aliens as they have learned to game the system, whether with stolen
    Social security numbers, federal ITIN numbers.

    whatever the price to us people, this tyrant of a president must be prevented
    from carrying out each phase of his “fundamental change” to our great nation as
    the executive branch of government is controlling our future, which is
    prohibited in our beloved Constitution. Obama has bypassed the Congress “to do
    what HE Will, as the whole of the Law”. Obama and his drones have already
    caused mammoth damage, to foreign diplomacy, our economy and that will take decades
    to disentangle. His socialistic ideas are not much different from a Marxist
    attitude towards of building a mega-government that we must obey and all
    controlling. This administration lies all the time; to the most gullible that
    believe them and who are enthusiastic about “Something for nothing”. We must
    take steps to get our voices heard across America and rally our
    grassroots family, friends, independents and all moderate conservatives, even

    It’s an outrage what’s happening at the
    Southern border, with a main silence coming from the Democrats. Two sheriffs on
    the border said that criminal were bring larger drug loads across both the
    North and southern border, and criminal activity was up. The sheriff in one
    isolated county in Texas told a cable news
    network, that a Mexican national who had been deported 4 times was back again
    and raped a young woman.

    old weasel Sen. Harry Reid says the border is secure, while border patrol
    officers are obligated to assist with the welfare of thousands of infants,
    pregnant mothers and teenagers who stood within the jurisdiction of our
    soil–demanding to be detained. So how can the border be secure, when a stream
    of illegal aliens slipping past the border? You just have to look at the 50,000
    who are in custody.

    needs to amend the 2008 child Trafficking act, so every country is included and
    not just Mexico? That way we can accelerate
    the deportation of anybody? Why are we not expediting this law, so we can stop
    this illegal alien invasion travesty? Politicians at the usual snails pace in Washington debate
    how to best deal with the influx of illegal immigrants from Central America
    along the southwest border, smugglers continue to transport women, children,
    and entire families into the country; now we have to
    accommodate them, feed them and offering medical care, when inflation for the
    American people is climbing upwards. Have you notices the price of gas and your
    groceries lately? Once again the government is lying to you and informing us
    that there is hardly any inflation? THAT’S WHY SENIOR CITIZENS ARE NOT GETTING

    the Democrats are demanding $3.7 billion dollars for these illegal aliens,
    while we have homeless and millions of jobless Americans. Then the final straw
    some non-profit has a contract to house the unaccompanied minors in foster
    homes, offering $5064 dollars a month—tax free. America is in the middle of a
    nightmare, caused mainly Obama offering Dream kids a free gift of staying here,
    therefore making people in foreign countries, that are under the assumption
    that kids especially arriving here get to stay. Of course along with no money,
    they are carrying invisible “travelers” that our lawmakers
    don’t like to mention: diseases the U.S. had controlled or virtually erased for
    decades: highly infectious tuberculosis, scabies Chagas disease, dengue fever,
    hepatitis, malaria, measles, plus much more.

    alien diseases and the lack of any major manpower on the Southern border have
    resulted in a gag order, according to some border agents who have defied their
    supervisors by speaking to reporters. Jane Orient, executive
    director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, stated
    “admitting these huge groups of children puts the United
    States at jeopardy for epidemics of
    serious diseases and viruses that the nation has not seen in years. Cases
    coming from south of the border can be very resistant to medications.” Also
    coming across the border is pregnant women who are aware that once here, their
    progeny is born they can claim instant citizen, robbing Americans of benefits
    for our own children or taxpayers paying the bills for everything in costs for

    the border is so strengthened and it is sealed, how come there are warning
    signs of regions in Arizona that entering these
    locations at your own risk? Charles Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist was
    correct that that senile Senator Harry Reid “needs to take his meds”. But it
    was the ex Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson of Texas who was really
    instrumental in leaving us wide open to invasion. She added an amendment within
    the 2006 Secure fence Act that eliminated the construction of 700 miles of
    double layer fencing, similar to the great success of the 50 mile length of
    fencing in San Diego.

    Patrol, a grassroots organization went ahead surveying the border, proving that
    100 of miles were not fenced or even patrolled; nothing but Sage Brush and remnants
    of pre–1950 fencing, if at all exists? Large signs on highways explained the
    danger of drug cartels, illegal alien smuggling and other heinous activities. Mexico is not our friend;
    they have been looking the other way, of the mass invasion of our country and
    some of their policing authorities are bribed by the most dangerous drug gangs.

    Blocking amnesty for
    illegals is up to us—grassroots America—the little citizens. We need you. Check these site that
    has the phone Numbers and Mailing Addresses of Members of Congress at http://www.contactingthecongress/
