Border Refugees Older Than We're Told

August 18, 2014


The people crossing the border are not children.They are teenagers, according to a study by the Pew Foundation in conjunction with Border Patrol. In 2013, the study determined that, in round numbers, 35,000, or 88 percent, of those stopped were between ages 13-18, and only 5,000, or 12 percent, were young­er. Why, then, are they being portrayed as children?

You might not know the reason, but when this ad­ministration does anything, the answer is always “votes.”
