Barack Obama acknowledged that attempts of 60,000 children of illegal immigrants to get into the U.S. this year was a humanitarian crisis. However, he offered no solution to the problem, The Washington Times wrote.
On Monday, Obama said that the United States faced a "humanitarian emergency" and ordered adequate departments to take care of the children. However, Obama did not offer at least a theoretical solution to the problem.
Since the beginning of the year, as many as 60,000 unaccompanied children, many of them under 12 years of age, have tried to enter the territory of the United States since the beginning of the current year. The White House made it clear that this problem could not be solved yet. In 2015, the number of children of illegal immigrants is likely to double.
The inability of the American president to solve the migration issue is only one of the factors that show negative influence on his popularity rankings. Last year, the Migration Service of the U.S. released 36,000 dangerous migrant criminals, who were awaiting deportation. Republican Congressman of Texas, Lamar Smith, said the decision of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was "the biggest jailbreak, authorized by the President." "This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials," Smith said.
