Tens of thousands of illegals are being released into communities across the nation, said Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), after a visit to the border last week. Minors are being placed in foster homes or with relatives in the U.S., while adults are given a “Notice to Appear,” which requires they show up for a deportation hearing.
“You know good and well they won’t show up and we won’t go looking for them,” Gohmert said. A senior Los Angeles County Sheriff’s detective who routinely deals with illegals said a “massive number–80 to 90 percent” do not show up for deportation hearings.
The Border Patrol has begun transporting some of the illegals to Southern California despite the protests of Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA). “Instead of solving the immigration problems along our border in Texas, President Obama has decided to spread that problem into communities in my congressional district and throughout Southern California,” Calvert said in a statement.
During his trip to the border, Rep. Gohmert said he talked to two women who said the fathers of their children were in North Carolina with good jobs and they wanted to join them there. “Not only did they think they could come and get to stay, they had heard that the U.S. government would transport the children to wherever the parents were,” Gohmert said.
