Illegal immigrant children forced to CUT OFF fingers and ears of other kids by 'coyote' gangs, claims Ted Cruz | Mail Online

  • Sen. Ted Cruz and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott toured Lackland Air Force Base, where more than 1,000 children are being held after crossing the border illegally
  • Drug dealers force children 'to cut off the fingers or cut off the ears of other little boys and little girls, in order to extort money from their families'
  • 'And these children are told, "If you don't cut off the fingers or ears of another child, you'll be shot"'
  • Cruz and Abbott blame Obama for suggesting to Central American parents that their children can receive amnesty if they make it to the United States
  • Obama announced a policy in 2012 that 'deferred' the deportation of 800,000 people brought into the US illegally as children through June 2007
  • Cruz said Obama, not Central American violence, is at the root of a flood of children streaming into border states
  • 'You would expect to see more families coming to flee violence,' he said, but 'the shift here in particular focuses on unaccompanied minors'

Lashing out at President Barack Obama for a 2012 policy shift that he said encourages Central American parents to send their children northward, Sen. Ted Cruz said the children are being placed in 'unspeakable' peril when the traffickers,known as 'coyotes,' take over.

'We just heard stories of little boys and little girls, forced by these drug dealers to cut off the fingers or cut off the ears of other little boys and little girls, in order to extort money from their families,' Cruz said after he toured the temporary holding facility for 'unaccompanied alien children' at Lackland Air Force Base along with Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and Rep. Michael Burgess.

'And these children are told, "If you don't cut off the fingers or ears of another child, you'll be shot".'

Cruz was relating accounts he heard from officials at the Lackland facility in San Antonio, according to a spokesperson in his office.

Heartbreak: More than 1,000 children -- a tiny fraction of the national total this year -- wait at Lackland AFB while health care professionals and caseworkers figure out how to reunite them with family members -- who may not be in the U.S. legally themselves

The coyotes, Cruz said, 'are not well-meaning social workers trying to care for these kids. These are hardened, cold criminals. These are transnational, global criminal cartels. And they are vicious, violent murderers.'

'These children are being subjected to physical abuse, to sexual abuse. Some of them are losing their lives.'

'When the President of the United States prevents the Border Patrol from following the law and enforcing our immigration laws,' Cruz declared, 'when the President of the United States announces to the world, "Amnesty for those who have broken the law," the consequence is that people respond to that.'

'And the way they've responded to that is handing over their children to drug dealers and vicious cartels.'

Abbott, who is running to succeed Republican Rick Perry as governor of Texas, confirmed the accounts they heard and agreed that the White House deserves the blame.

'We are dealing with a human-made crisis. The challenges  these children are going through are unprecedented,' he said, 'and it is unacceptable to have children housed in facilities like this.'

'Equally unacceptable, though, is to have a president promoting policies that entice children to navigate more than 1,000 miles away from home, going through the most treacherous conditions, facing things like human trafficking and sexual assault.'
