When the news broke of mass numbers of unaccompanied children crossing the border, the response by officials at DHS and ICE were that they were "surprised" by the influx. This first-we-heard-of-it tactic by the President and his people is getting a little tiring. Remember the V.A. scandal. The first they heard of it was when it was reported by CNN. The same was true with the IRS scandal and Fast and Furious.
Now, with the border crisis raging, we are finding out that the Obama Administration knew for a least a year that there would be a massive influx of Central American children crossing the border. Last January, they ran an ad seeking a contractor to handle the transportation of a very specific and calculated number of 65,000 unaccompanied children. That amount seems to be right in sync with the projected numbers that we are now being given by the "surprised" Administration. Then, just recently, we find out that, in August of last year, the Border Patrol built a makeshift processing and transportation center at Brownsville, Texas; specifically to handle unaccompanied children.
This all begs the question: When is the most transparent Administration in the history of the United States going to start being transparent?
