I first found this at the Daily Caller,
Any permanent resident, parolee or illegal immigrant granted or in the process of being granted a work permit under President Barack Obama’s recent executive order or his deferred action policy, who has children under 21 living in Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador can apply for the program.
Ponder that for a moment: Hondurans, Guatemalans and Salvadorans are to be granted exceptional privileges above all other immigrants into the U.S., and the State Department and Department of Homeland Security will administer the program.
Immigration and State Department officials explained how the program will work on an invite-only teleconference call Tuesday that was not open to the press and was mostly attended by groups known to advocate for illegal immigrants
They’ll get free DNA tests, one-way tickets to the U.S., and, once here, they are allowed refugee status, and will be provided free education, medical care, living expenses and food stamps.

DHS Launches “Family Reunification,” Refugee Program for Central Americans (emphasis added),
A U.S.-based parent will initiate the application to bring his or her child in from any of the three Central American countries. To qualify they must be a permanent resident, a parolee or a beneficiary of Obama’s recent amnesty or deferred action. Many have probably lived illegally in the U.S. for years. The only out-of-pocket cost is for a DNA test to assure the child belongs to the applicant but Uncle Sam will reimburse the money if the result is positive. A U.S. official will interview the child, then a medical exam and “cultural orientation” will be conducted before the minor flies to the U.S. Once in the U.S. the illegal alien will get “resettlement assistance,” the State Department official confirmed during the teleconference.
If the applicant doesn’t qualify for the more desirable refugee status he or she can be considered for parole, a USCIS official explained in the teleconference, which was attended mostly by immigrant rights groups known for advocating on behalf of illegal aliens. Refugee status is a form of protection offered to those who are deemed of special humanitarian concern to the United States. Parole allows individuals who may be otherwise inadmissible to come to the U.S. on a case-by-case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. The State Department official assured that applicants need not express or document a credible fear to qualify under CAM because “we want to make sure this program is open to as many people as possible.”
Notice how the age limit is 21, while voting age is 18.
Rule of law (the restriction of the arbitrary exercise of power by subordinating it to well-defined and established laws) goes out the window.
I want to know, when did Congress fund this?
Meanwhile, God help you if you were adopted and your parents didn’t apply for your citizenship.
