Stats, Please (Video Added)

The most recent DHS projection as to how many illegal unaccompanied minors will have arrived here by September 30: 90,000.

But what are the percentages and head counts for the following (recent figures, of course)?

1. How many of the illegal border surgers are in the age brackets of 1 year-5 years of age?

2. How many of the illegal border surgers are in the age brackets of 6 years-10 years of age?

3. How many of the illegal border surgers are in the age brackets of 11 years-13 years of age?

4. How many of the illegal border surgers are in the age brackets of 14 years-17 years of age?

Can anybody reading this blog post find some answers?


Addendum:

  1. A commenter at Infidel Bloggers Alliance offered this comment when I cross-posted to that blog site:

    "I don't know the numbers, but remember the largest group is in the 14 to 17 age bracket."

  2. From today's lead editorial in the WaPo:

    ...The fact is that since he entered office, shortly after the 2008 law took effect, the number of undocumented youths deported or turned back at border posts has plummeted, according to government figures released to the Los Angeles Times.

    Mr. Obama has come under intense pressure from Democrats and immigration advocates to continue this leniency. They make their argument on humanitarian grounds. But there is nothing humanitarian in tacitly encouraging tens of thousands of children to risk their lives, often at the hands of cutthroat smugglers, to enter this country illegally.

  3. As a person who gives generously to the less fortunate on a routine basis, and has never been able to pass up a stray kitten or a lost puppy without trying to do something to help it, I suppose i should be on the side of the "liberals" on this issue. Maybe, but THIS disgusting mess has all the earmarks of a PUT UP JOB, and it STINKS to high heaven.

    The fiendish manipulators and master baiters who comprise the cadre of Leftist Agitators and Activists is once again CYNICALLY EXPLOITING yet-another tragically underprivileged group in order to gain political leverage. I have great sympathy for these poor children, -- regardless of what age they may be, -- BUT they are merely being USED as PAWNS in yet-another vicious Power Grab.

    Somehow, leftists ALWAYS manage to portray the TRUE targets of their machinations as "cold, unfeeling, uncaring uncharitable, greedy, selfish monsters" when it is the LEFTISTS, themselves, who have CREATED the crisis to begin with.

    Consequently, IF we natural-born American citizens DARE to speak up in defense of our territorial integrity and legal rights as citizens, WE get branded as "vicious" Racists, Bigots, Nativists, would-be-Klansmen –– you name it.

    I don't know about YOU, but I am sick and tired of being VICTIMIZED by these swaggering, scheming, disingenuous, self-righteous, hypocritical, game-playing FIENDS.

    [And YES, to those querulous, nitpicking busybodies, who make a career spying on many blogs in the hope of finding a good excuse to pounce on perceived violations of "netiquette," this IS a sanitized, lightly emended repetition of remarks I posted at Western Hero earlier this morning. So what! They are as appropriate to AOW's post as as they are to any other on the subject uncontrolled, frankly insurgent, illegal immigration. We are being INVADED. There's no other word for it.]

  4. As a person who is certainly not a liberal and most definitely not a progressive, Id like to throw my 2 cents into the story. Instead of spending most of my time wasted on watching the silliness of the World Cup or what Ms. Obama is eating these days, I am deeply concerned with what is going on at our Boarders. I try to look for a source that is non-partisan.
    And I try my best not to even read anything that Attorney General Eric Holder has to suggest, as i already know that he is a puppet who has the prresident pulling his strings on a daily basis.

    What we have going on these days at the southern border is a true and actual crisis, of major concern . News accounts justly use words like chaos, collapse and breakdown, And all we see from the Great One seems to be a total lack of concern, His concern seems to be more with fund-raising and vacations then solving this mess that he himself has created. And there we have it.
    It's really too bad the veterans have again become a political football by what appears to me on the presidents back burner .
    This is why I find the democratic party absolutely disgusting! They'd rather play politics with people's lives (in this case vets). There are way too many times both put party over country.
    Also We talk about 9/11 everyday but we never talk about the possibility of another attack by allowing these people into our country by the lack of concern at our Boarders!
    We just recently release 5 of the most dangerous terrorist in the world in exchange for ONE lousy Deserter, where is the sense in that? It's plain nonsense !
    I would only hope people don't get suckered into another war by the actions of this inept president..Stupid is stupid, regardless of whether the president is a liberal or a progressive, one is as stupid as the other. For heavens sakes, enforce our immigration laws. We do not need amnesty without enforcing immigration laws will only lead to more problems and more expenses for our already over taxed citizens. Americans are compassionate but their own poor come first and enough is enough already.There is already a job supply problem in America, as well as a drug problem. We don’t need any more.

  11. For the first time in my adult life I’m REALLY ASHAMED of my country.
    At a time when our country is literally Going To Hell In A Hand Basket. On the president’s trip to Texas, President Obama, DID NOT go to the Boarder where all hell is breaking out. And with ALL the scandals, all over the news headlines, With Political Correctness completely, with our economy going down the drain and with China and to a Arab nations are buying up business and property in the United States out of control, with our national debt at unprecedented levels, with the lies and cover-ups from Lois Learner’s emails and the IRS at a point where the entire country is sick and tired of these falsities. with Hillary Clinton’s manufacturing lie after lie. The Dear Leader made a surprise stop at Austin's Franklin Barbecue. Now isn’t that special!
    Since he was on his way to the airport and in a bit of a rush, he cut in line ... but he made up for it: He quickly apologized to those he'd cut in front of and bought their lunch.
    According to the Dallas News, Obama said "Hey guys! I hear the barbecue is pretty good here. Is that true? I know this is a long line. I feel real bad, but – I'm gonna cut."
    When it was time to pay, the president took out some cash. After noticing the order cost more than $300, Obama took out his credit card and asked his trip director Marvin Nicholson if the card would work.......If I lived in Russia, maybe I’d think that was funny! But sorry not now and not here!
    On another note, Any government which tries to take the guns from its citizens are not “looking out” for its citizens…
    Sounds like something Hitler would have said while trying to convince us to “trust him”.

      How can WE THE PEOPLE hold him accountable? Our so-called elected public servants hold us in contempt and pay no attention to our letters, emails, faxes, phone calls, etc.

      I don't see Obama voluntarily stopping the active implementation of his agenda.

      November is months away, and the swearing in of elected public servants doesn't take place until 2015.

      So, even if there is a huge change in the Senate, the delay is substantial.

  17. Why was it that with ALL the signs of incompetence so clearly shown by Obama, the American voters still reelected him despite a first term that included all his policies that put America at jeopardy, both economially and militarily. Apparently these uninformed people made no connection between facts and his competence. As for the voters who stayed home because they didn’t care for the opponent that ran against Obama (Romney) they are just as much to blame as those who voted for this misery we now have in the White House. .

  22. I want the age breakdowns for the following reasons:

    If those being allowed in are not children in the strict sense of the word (particularly according to Central American culture),

    (1) the appeal-to-the-heartstrings factor is not nearly as strong

    (2) those at age 15 and up could well be being brought in as a cheap labor force

    (3) the older they are, the weaker the assimilation factor becomes

    (4) older Central Americans in the higher age brackets for minors are more likely to contain the criminal element embedded

      Come back in 6 months' time with the statistics indicating what has happened to these border surgers.

      Meanwhile, more surge across. BHO has not issued an executive order to prevent more surgers from crossing over into the United States. He has not deployed a sufficient border patrol force, either. He's obeying the 2008 law, but he has no difficulty in not enforcing other legislation (such as certain provisions of ObamaCare).

      Has any administration enforced immigration laws by securing the border?

      If I recall correctly, part of the 1986 amnesty agreement was securing the border. Didn't happen because Congress didn't fund taking that step.

      I do not favor any immigration reform without making better efforts to secure the border. Furthermore, no comprehensive reform will matter without securing that border.

    Obama has had multiple opportunities to make it clear that these children are not welcome to enter our country illegally. Instead, he gives them a wink and nod talking about how great it is that America can welcome immigrants. There's an open borders constituency in the Democrat Party and he's pandering to them. He doesn't seem to understand or care about the consequences.

    Did you see the video on TV today of a Black American woman yelling about how we need the over $3 BILLION for OUR AMERICAN KIDS and why are we giving it to illegals?

    I have great sympathy for the immigrant kids but does that mean we take in every child from Central America? Why stop there? We MUST figure something out that works for everyone somehow.
    And how about the news discussing how kids were TOLD what to say? Anybody see that on the news? Of course not. They're being prompted to say just what liberals want to here.

    And, oh, you NASTY Republicans for suggesting that the kids may have to go home. Oh, yes...this is the perfect Obama ploy, isn't it?

And how bad, and inconsiderate it would be for us to them to turn them away and send them back to all that poverty. And isn’t it also funny how no one has mentioned how they managed to get enough money to pay to get here, 0bama's plan has always been to destroy the middle class and turn America into a third world banana republic with him as dictator. It must be galling to him to know that whatever he does, nothing he can do will turn him into a white man, so he must subjugate and destroy the white race. Why don’t our Dear leader just put the whole lot of them on a bus and send them straight to Detroit, Chicago, or better yet to Washington DC! Or maybe to Martha's Vineyard ot to Chappaqua, N.Y, I’m sure that t they’d make great neighbors, for the Butcher of Benghazi! And if you think that our Dear leader's fingerprints aren't on this, you are one of the most naive people in America.
