President Obama on Monday announced the establishment of an interagency group to deal with rising numbers of children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border unaccompanied by adults. Yahoo News reports:

In a memo that describes an “urgent humanitarian situation,” Obama has put the Federal Emergency Management Agency in charge of coordinating humanitarian relief to the children, including housing, care, medical treatment and transportation.

The Obama administration estimates that about 60,000 “unaccompanied minors” — children under 18 — will enter the United States illegally this year. It projects that number to grow to nearly 130,000 next year.

A facility that will accommodate up to 600 children will be established at Naval Base Ventura County in Southern California, it was announced today. A similar facility was established last month at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, and is nearing its 1,200 child capacity.

No Illegal Alien Child’s Lawyer Left Behind: Zoe Lofgren wants you to pay!

Hmm, we wonder who will pay for all those lawyers. We’re pretty sure the illegal aliens won’t.

According to FoxNews.com, the American Civil Liberties Union “has already sued the federal government to ensure that each of the 60,000-plus unaccompanied children who have come across the border since November gets taxpayer-funded representation at deportation hearings” [emphasis added].

Welcome to the Immigration Lawyers’ Enrichment Act.

Remember, a whole nine days ago, when White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest insisted that most unaccompanied minor illegal aliens will be deported?

Ha ha, that was a good one. The unfortunate truth is that most will never be removed:

More than a decade ago, Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin described the U.S. deportation system as “It Ain’t Over ‘Til the Alien Wins.”

Same old, same old.
