Fewer child immigrants attempting to cross the U.S-Mexico border

The Department of Homeland Security reported last Wednesday, September 3 that the number of children attempting to illegally cross into the United States from the U.S.-Mexico border is steadily declining.

In August, the Border Patrol took 3,129 children into custody, those of which were mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. In July the number was at 5,400, while in June it reached over 10,600.

This wide increase triggered the administration to beef up efforts against human smuggling groups and urgently seek out cooperation from parents in Central America to not send their children to treks to the country via Mexico. The Obama administration declined to comment on why these numbers are declining so significantly, saying different factors could have caused it.

However, one contributing factor could stem from how last month, Mexican officials began pulling Central Americans off of a freight train, dubbed “La Bestia” (The Beast), notorious for taking thousands of migrants toward the U.S. border.

Austin considering issuing city ID cards

A number of leaders in Austin, Texas are pushing for the city to issue their own identification cards to provide fair opportunities to people in the area, regardless of their immigration status.

Austin is known for being an immigrant-friendly city, and took great pains last year along with 14 other cities to announce its cause, according to Immigration Rights Coalition member Nora De La Rosa.

The Austin City Council met at the Travis County Commissioners Court on Thursday, August 7 in the hopes of getting the city manager to put the option of instituting the IDs on the table. These cards would make it much easier for individuals to secure health care, visit their children in school, and participate in a number of other important services.

Obama should have answer on immigration issues by end of summer

Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer has stated that United States President Barack Obama will decide by the end of the summer on how to address concerns regarding immigrants who are in the country illegally.

As to rumors that Obama might hesitate on the deportation of at least 5 million of these immigrants, Pfeiffer said these rumors are hearsay and “uninformed speculation.”

Pfeiffer stated that Obama is awaiting recommendations from Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and that any initiative of the administration will be within the “confines of the law”.

Pfeiffer said Obama will be acting in his own capacity as president due to Congress’ failure to adequately repair the country’s immigration system, including allocating money to help deal with the increasing problem of children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

If you are looking to come to the United States, the existing rules and regulations can make it very complicated and difficult to do so.
