“White House officials, saying that misinformation about administration policies helped drive a surge of illegal migrants from Central America across the South Texas border, on Friday announced plans to detain more of them and to accelerate their court cases so as to deport them more quickly,” reports The New York Times. Furthermore, “Migrants unfamiliar with the American system have been confusing the notice to appear in court, the immigration equivalent of an indictment, with a permit to stay in the United States.” They even dispatched Joe Biden to Guatemala to clear things up with prospective border-crossers. The Obama administration has made flouting immigration law its signature policy – a great way to ensure Hispanics become a unified Democrat voting bloc. Now they’re quietly saying, “Oops,” and slapping a Band-Aid on the problem.
