Video: Immigrant Activists Won't Discourage Minors From Crossing Border Illegally

By Dan Joseph | July 8, 2014 | 3:06pm EDT

Illegal Immigrant activist groups rallied in front of the White House, Monday to demand that president Obama halt his efforts to speed up deportations for the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors who are currently being held near the southern border.  The protest must have worked because president Obama put those efforts on hold, later that afternoon. 

MRCTV was at the protest and questioned activists as to whether they would discourage Central Americans from making attempts to cross the southern border illegally.  Those that we talked to, including the event’s organizer, would not say that they would discourage this illegal behavior and one of the protesters even said that he would encourage it.

Some lawmakers believe that the recent influx of unaccompanied minors, mostly from Central America, is due to executive action that the president took in 2011, when he unilaterally granted amnesty to millions of young illegals currently in the United States.

Additionally, despite the activists claims that illegals are being deported at an alarming rate, statistics show that the number of illegal immigrant minors who have been deported is at an eight year low.
