Pro-Illegal Immigration Group Boasts It’s Helping 160 Illegals Enter The U.S. By Having Them Turn Themselves In At Border Post Claiming Asylum…
Of course nobody in the Obama regime has a problem with them making a mockery of our immigration laws.

A national group known for its controversial demonstrations against U.S. immigration enforcement policies said it was helping roughly 160 people enter the United States from Mexico, without authorization, through San Diego.
Mohammad Abdollahi, a leader of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance, told Fox News Latino on Monday that his group, along with others assisting in California, had about 158 people ready to cross the border at the Tijuana-San Diego checkpoint and ask to remain in the United States.
“We might have other people joining,” he said.
Some of the people participating in the protest were scheduled to speak about how their families had been torn apart by deportations, according to a press release about the event. NIYA is organizing the crossing with assistance from two California advocacy groups, Border Angels and “The Bring Them Home” projects.
In a statement, NIYA said: “This will be the third time the #BringThemHome campaign has fought for immigrants who were deported or forced to leave their homes in the United States. On Monday, they will begin the long journey back to their loved ones across the country after crossing the border in San Diego.”
Last year two previous crossings, which also originated in Mexico, involved smaller groups – nine the first time, and about 34 the second time. Those groups were called DREAM 9 and DREAM 34.
Most of the people in both groups requested political asylum, saying they feared persecution if they returned to Mexico. They were detained for weeks by immigration officials; most passed an initial fear of persecution screening and are awaiting final decisions on their political asylum claims. A few in the second group were deported.
The provocative move created divisions within advocates who want more lenient immigration policies and a dramatic reduction in deportations.
