    While the White House continues to insist the influx of children from Central America has nothing to do with its immigration policies, mounting evidence is proving otherwise.

    In addition to a leaked internal memo that pins the administration’s lax enforcement laws as responsible for the recent humanitarian crisis in Texas and Arizona, Jorge Ramos, anchor of the Spanish-language television network Univision, further challenged the Obama narrative that the surge is a direct response to violence and poverty in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

    In an interview with a Marlen Mena Bautista, a Honduran mother whose 15-year-old son recently crossed the border illegally, Ramos found that children are instead coming to the United States because of a widespread perception that they won’t be deported.

    RAMOS: Do you have the perception that once children cross the border to the United States, they won’t be deported?

    BAUTISTA: That is what is being said in Central America, almost all the time. Almost everyone is saying it.

    RAMOS: So what is being said in Central America is that they don’t deport children. So once they enter this country, they stay in this country?

    BAUTISTA: Yes. I imagine that is why he decided to come.
