Did Obamnesty Cause Border Numbers to Jump?
Media bias ignores the real story
Glenn Spencer, American Border Patrol -- June 5   
    On August 15, 2012, the USCIS released the forms necessary to apply for DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Obama's amnesty program). Less than one month later, reports began to appear suggesting a surge in cross border activity
    In early February, Del Sol, a Mexican newspaper, reported a link.
    Mexico City -- Given the increased flow of Mexicans in the northern border because of the immigration reform announced by the government of the United States, Senator PRD Barrales Alejandra Magdaleno request the Federal Executive a report of the measures are implemented to ensure respect for their rights and safety at crossings on the northern border.            
Leo Banks of the Tucson Weekly once observed, "The word amnesty possesses remarkable power on the Mexican side of the line. It has the same effect as a starter's pistol."
    The mainstream media are reporting that apprehensions are up over last year (fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2012). However, a review of stories in USA Today and The Christian Science Monitor found no mention of a possible link between the launch of the amnesty program and an increase in illegal immigration; even though some pretty good data, and a report from the Mexican government, suggests this is the case.
    Once again we are experiencing bias, i.e., the media refuse to report on anything that might make Obama look bad --- or that illegal aliens are gaming the system.
