HUME: OBAMA 'FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE' IS FOLLOWING LAW ON BORDER CRISIS
Breitbart ^ | 7/7/2014 | Jeff Poor

During his Monday commentary segment on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” network senior political analyst Brit Hume argued the blame for the so-called humanitarian crisis at the southern border isn’t President Barack Obama and his administration’s fault.

Instead he argued it was the law’s fault.

Hume pointed to the wording of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, pointing out that it has specific requirements for unaccompanied minors coming into the United States illegally and that he said is where much confusion lies.

“In the uproar of tens of thousands of illegal children pouring across the border, people don't know what the law is and others pretend they don’t.

Republican Congressman Raul Labrador of Idaho said on Sunday TV that the Obama administration should deport these children immediately. Later in the interview, he conceded the law does not permit that. The law in question is called the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008.

It was passed by Congress unanimously and signed by President Bush. It requires that immigrant minors apprehended at the border may only be deported immediately if they are from Mexico or Canada.”

“The rest must be turned over within three days to the Department of Health and Human Services to await deportation hearings,” he continued.

“In the meantime the law says quote, ‘They shall be placed in the least restrictive setting that is in the best interest of the child.’

With an estimated 50,000 such children having come here from Central America this year, you can imagine how much trouble HHS is having housing them not to mention how long it will take the courts to process their cases.

Law was started in 2000... 2008 is the funds for it.

 

"To authorize appropriations for fiscal years 2008 through 2011 for the Trafficking
Victims Protection Act of 2000, to enhance measures to combat trafficking in
persons, and for other purposes."
This law is about trafficking...not illegals just pouring in.
The original law from 2000 - http://www.state.gov/j/tip/laws/61124.htm
Hume DOESN'T have a clue what this Act is even about...has absolutely ZERO with what's going on at our borders today.

I have to disagree with the article. He may be following the law after they have illegally crossed the border, but he is NOT following the law in keeping them from crossing. If he were enforcing the law, we wouldn't be having this crisis. It's all on Obama at this point ....

This isn't about trafficking when they're lining up and actually trying to find the Border Patrol and waving them down...Hume's wrong.

Hume is completely correct......he didn't say a thing about HOW they were getting across...his article was about what happens AFTER they are already here.......

Wrong. Maybe you ought to read the law. The law is only in circumstances of women and children being TRAFFICKED into the country illegally.

 

Trafficking versus an individual crossing the border illegally just cuz are different....
