The United States as we have known it is dying. Its death is at the hands of politicians and it is being done so cleverly, with the help of a compliant and far-left media, that the people don’t even know it’s happening.
Mr. Obama is overloading the system with crises and we cannot handle them. This opens the way for Mr. Obama to use his pen and phone to solve them. He will solve it as Marxists solve problems and he will do so as incompetently as he has done in the past. There is no reason to believe he will suddenly become competent.
Mr. Obama isn’t doing it alone. He has help from his hand-picked staff and an obsequious Congress that cares nothing for their own authority under the Constitution.
We will soon see the end of the United States as a free nation as a result.
Obama is even destroying other countries. Iraq is being overcome by an Al-Qaeda group even more vicious than the mainstream terrorists and it is because Mr. Obama made little effort to work out a status of forces agreement and because he has no articulated foreign policy. He talks tough and carries no clout unless it’s against his fellow citizens.
He left Iraq in a weakened state without following through on the commitment we made. He will do the same in Afghanistan. He is doing nothing of value in Syria. He does a little here, a little there, but nothing that is effective.
He does not articulate a foreign policy other than, “Don’t do stupid sh…” He has “dudes” and liars (like Susan Rice) running our national security.
Our president is completely lawless and only enforces those laws he chooses to enforce with the express purpose of fundamentally transforming the nation. He has made government agencies more powerful than Congress, ignores rulings by the Supreme Court of the United States, and is currently promoting a full-scale invasion by drug cartels, terrorists and poor and needy foreigners, including unaccompanied children.
The invasion and the exploitation of children is criminal but the people in this country are unaware. The children and the poor are overwhelming our system. We can’t handle it. We are facing a collapse and Mr. Obama will step in and manage it – badly.
Illegal immigration is a strong component of the transformation now underway.
We know that Hezbollah is working with the drug cartels and they are coming over the border while border patrol is taking care of the children and not doing their job. The border is open – literally.
Our immigration law isn’t broken, it’s unenforced. The policies by Mr. Obama and the politicians in D.C. have brought this about. Border Patrol agents were jubilant that Cantor lost his job.
There is confusion about how to solve this problem and the politicians are leaning towards doing more of the same before Mr. Obama brings out his pen and phone.
The poor who are coming here are under the false impression that if they come, they will be given citizenship, education, medical care and much more. In fact, Mr. Obama has indeed assured the people, many of whom are unaccompanied children, many of whom are very young, that they will get welfare and lawyers.
The Central American papers are encouraging the misinformation. La Prensa wrote this recently:
“During their stay, in addition to accommodations and food, children receive English classes, play sports and participate in targeted programs while immigration authorities contact their families.”
It’s just a day at the beach according to La Prensa. In reality, some of the children coming over the border are ending up as sex slaves. Others are killed while traveling with coyotes. The ones that do make it are being kept in cages, in crowded conditions. These youngsters are being exploited by D.C. to further a political agenda.
Except for Fox News – a station that has been vilified as untruthful by the very perpetrators of these acts – the media is not covering the disaster at our border.
That is to say nothing of problems like the competition that illegal labor – cheap labor – provides, and which destroys businesses of citizens.
An amnesty bill without border security will mean more of this, yet that is what D.C. is desperately pushing. Even Republicans have been fooled into saying our system is broken and they are aiding and abetting the lawbreaker-in-chief. They should be addressing his lawbreaking. Some are but many are not.
Open Borders congressman Luis Gutierrez said the president will act. In other words, he will initiate immigration reform with his pen and phone. This is how we got into this situation.
Obama has systematically refused to enforce our laws, he has given benefits to illegals, and made it known that he will not enforce the laws. And now, he is exploiting children to achieve his goals.
Vice President Joe Biden told the National Association of Manufacturers this week that the United States needs more, not fewer immigrants. He said this knowing about this invasion.
He called for a “constant, unrelenting stream” of new immigrants — “not dribbling [but] significant flows,” to bolster the national economy, The Hill reported.
“We need it badly from a purely — purely economic point of view,” Mr. Biden said, The Hill reported.
He later tweeted: “The final thing we need to do together is pass immigration reform … We need it badly. -VP at manufacturing summit,” Newsmax reported.
Biden wants more of this exploitation and dangerous unsecured border crossings.
In a statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, they wrote:
“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes.”
“Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States government,” the officers said.
“Anyone that has taken two six to seven year old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States.”
Speaking to Fox News Radio, Rep. Darrell Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, stated that these children believe they will become American citizens once they come into the U.S.
“This flood is going to mean children dying trying to get in,” Issa told Fox News Radio. “And more important, children coming here with the anticipation that somehow they’re going to be granted citizenship and then they will bring the rest of their family … that’s a false narrative. It’s not consistent with what Republicans or Democrats would choose to do to fix the immigration problem.”
When the illegal immigrants come in, they are given a notice to appear in court in 15 days. They think it’s their papers – legalizing them.
In an interview with Breitbart Texas, the Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, Shawn Moran stated that the Mexican cartels are in charge of the flow of illegal immigrants coming across the border – they control the border. They use a monopoly of coyotes and human smugglers.
“Mexican cartels are exploiting this crisis to get their shipments through. They know our schedules, our shifts, our manpower, and how we react to these situations,” said Vice President Moran.
“The cartels control the flow of people from south of our border,” he said.
They are currently using the Rio Grande Valley, the area of easiest access, but could use any other sector at any time according to Moran.
They cannot preempt the cartels, Moran warned, and while exhausted border agents are doing their best to keep America safe, they cannot.
They are doing their best despite the fact that their pay has been cut and they are working under horrible conditions to say nothing of the abuse they get from the administration.
They can’t use guns, they can’t tell anyone what is going on, and they are discounted at every turn.
“We are trying to balance providing enough personnel to handle the influx in the holding facilities while still trying to keep enough agents on the line,” Moran said.
“Since the CPB started reducing the hours agents can work, we have seen an overall increase in smuggling and illegal alien crossing,” he said. “The CBP is controlling the number of hours agents can work and we are desperately trying to keep enough agents in the field and still handle the processing of the illegal aliens we catch, but we are leaving vast swaths of the border unprotected.” He added, “The cartels know our limitations and our weak points and they are taking full advantage of them.”
In all of this, our D.C. politicians, in their Ivory Tower, want amnesty, which they call immigration reform. However, make no mistake, immigration reform without border control is amnesty and it will perpetuate a continued march across our borders.
When Marco Rubio pushed the Senate amnesty bill, he said Mr. Obama will do it anyway. He will but it would be better for Congress to push back, not capitulate.
Reagan was tricked into granting amnesty before border security and now the far-left is attempting to do the same thing again. Reagan’s amnesty forever changed California. Amnesty again will forever change the United States.
The National Association of Former Border Patrol Agents said this about amnesty on their website:
There Will Be No Background Checks
The proponents of the current amnesty bill claim that bad guys will be weeded out with criminal background checks. While the bill does call for background checks the fact is this: they won’t happen and tens (even hundreds) of thousands of criminal applicants will be approved for legal residence because of the failure.
Who will take all those fingerprints and how will they be submitted? Law enforcement agencies will not tie up their personnel and equipment doing them. The electronic equipment to take and submit prints is expensive; who will buy it? Who will pay for the online hookups? And whom do we trust to take the prints, whether in ink or electronically? Volunteer agencies?
The FBI has admitted that it will not be able to keep up with the volume of submissions in the time period allowed for amnesty. What we will see again is what happened in 1986: applications will be approved by default after the period for a response “times out.” In 1986 it was six weeks. Many applications were approved by default and many of those were found later to have had disqualifying criminal records but the law made it impossible to go back and reconsider the case – the files were sealed. Even if it revealed a criminal arrest warrant the agency holding the warrant could not be notified. Furthermore, if an application was denied based on a criminal record the applicant could not be referred for deportation proceedings – he was allowed to stay illegally in the U.S. The proposed law mimics that procedure and where it doesn’t, regulations will.
Criminal gang members cannot qualify unless they sign a statement renouncing their gang affiliation. We leave the outcome of that provision to your imagination.
Foreign record checks? NAFBPO laughs at the thought and you should, too. They simply cannot be had in most cases, and when obtained from countries where corruption is standard operating procedure they are unreliable. Think about legalizing cartel drug dealers and assassins, terrorists, murderers and pedophiles. We will not be able to identify them before we place them on a path to citizenship.
In short, the stage is set to legalize a great many aliens who are dangerous to America and Americans. Those in Congress pursuing amnesty know all these things and are willing to let it happen anyway. The only way to avoid this social disaster is to hold their feet to the political fire.
Illegal immigration is only one component of the planned destruction of our United States. In past articles, we have discussed the violations of constitutional law, the repeated trampling of states rights, and the destruction of congressional powers, but there is something else at work here. The destruction is the forerunner to the new society as envisioned by a Marxist president. This combination of incompetence, lawlessness and tyrannical abuse of executive power we are seeing can only lead to one thing in the end – a Marxist nation, one that is way beyond socialism.
