Not content with simply accepting the invasion of the United States as a fait accompli, the Obama administration is now actively seeking to facilitate the erasure of American sovereignty. To that end, it’s mooting a proposal to import hundreds-perhaps thousands-of Central Americans directly from their countries of origin under the ever-nebulous designation of refugee status. We can look forward, no doubt, to media portrayals of this newest misguided immigration policy as a modern-day version of Operation Pedro Pan and its opponents as heartless xenophobes. 

Of course, the Americans who live in the communities which will have to absorb these new refugees will have no say in the matter. The negative consequences of the newest refugee resettlement program will never be reported by the same media which contributed to it through their willfully misleading reporting, just as the economic costs of it will not be shared by the federal government which is responsible for its promulgation. 

For a view of where the unaccompanied minors have been placed thus far, we suggest looking at this useful map provided by the Wall Street Journal. Chances are that it will look very different by this time next year.
