FIRST LADY OF GUATEMALA: She said U.S. immigration policies, not violence, are breaking families apart and creating a humanitarian crisis


I stumbled upon this article …. note I have no idea if the First Lady of Guatemala is correct or not.  Her statements are in conflict with what others are saying for the reason so many children coming to USA:


Rosa Leal de Pérez, the first lady of Guatemala, believes the influx of illegal immigrant children into the United States has nothing to do with violence.


Ms. Pérez said the reason thousands of unattended children are fleeing north is to be reunited with their families in the United States. She said U.S. immigration policies are breaking families apart and creating a humanitarian crisis.


According to the United Nations and Democrats the children are refugees escaping violence in Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. This makes them refugees, not illegal immigrants.


“These are children who are coming across as refugees because of the violence that they are facing in their homelands,” said Rep. Joseph Crowley, the vice chair of the Democratic Caucus, during a press conference earlier this week.


Crowley and House Democrats are pushing through a $3.7 billion proposal to increase the border budget.


The United Nations has decided to bend the rules to help illegal immigrants enter the United States. Officials  CLICK HERE
