A number of immigrants, mostly kids trotted across the U.S. boundary near the Anzalduas International Bridge recently and rose on top of a stream levee.

Then, instead of coming around Border Patrol check points or stuffing into vehicles for secure homes farther north, the team did something unusual for those traversing unlawfully into the USA; they squatted on the levee and anticipated their police arrest.

The team was part of the latest increase of unaccompanied those who are under 18 and are loading into this heat, flat stretch of South Texas, frustrating Border Patrol features and leading to warmed discussion in Washington over what’s resulting in the problems and how to cope with it.

One key difference is that, the latest routes are showing from their predecessors: They’re not disturbing to put further into Texas, choosing instead to convert themselves in and allow U.S. plan toward immigrant young people decide their destiny, said Chris Cabrera, a McAllen-based Border Patrol Agent and vice president of the local section of the National Border Patrol Council.

“We’re seeing record numbers of children coming across,” he said. “We’re dealing with so many of them turning themselves in that it makes it hard for our agents to focus on anything else.”
The number of immigrant kids provided by the office of Refugee Resettlement, which is accountable for the young people, has increased from around 7,000 to 8,000 the year before this decade to 13,625 in financial year 2012 and 24,668 last financial season, according to the office. So far this season, the organization has mentioned more than 42,000.

The kids are traversing over from Mexico but are primarily from Main United states nations, such as Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. On 13th June 2014, Vice Chief executive Joe Biden is predicted to fulfill with Guatemalan Chief executive Otto Perez Molina, along with Salvadoran and Honduran authorities, in Honduras to talk about the problems.

Administration authorities have said assault and financial problems in those nations are forcing the kids to search for a better life in the USA. Some congress, however, claim the youths – and the smuggling jewelry providing them in – are taking advantage of U.S. plan, which allows young people from Main United states nations other than Mexico to be launched to an mature living in the USA while looking forward to their judgment. Mexican young people are handed over to an organization in that nation.

Meanwhile, they continue to appear, stuffing up features quicker than authorities can start them. In South Texas, where the large of the increase is arriving through, more than 1,600 youths have loaded up 13 housing, said Kimi Jackson, of the South Texas Pro Bono Asylum Representation Project, one of the few organizations that have met with the arrested kids. Federal authorities have also started out short-term facilities at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, in Ventura, Calif, and in Fort Sill, Okla, to cope with the overflow.
