Life in the USA now includes daily attacks on our liberties, health, and visions for success of future generations. The attacks are from our own government. Congress is in an ethical collapse, refusing to act using their constitutional power to deny funding for executive acts outside constitutional guardrails while funding projects that destroy the fabric of national security. An awakening of congressional oversight was delayed, with very few effective and visible public dialogs about that vital function. Without such compelling logical discussions to build the public understanding and confidence in the competence and leadership (including historical examples, legal precedents, and a look at the consequences of the considered action or inaction), the mainstream media is allowed to misrepresent the big picture with biased blather. They exhibit a hypnotic attraction to the Utopian agenda, effectively a propaganda arm for the political Left.
Consider this: The “most transparent administration in history” is arranging secret shuttling and placement of illegal immigrants without the (required by law) US Department of Health medical examinations and evaluations, possible quarantines, and return or refusal of entry according to circumstance. Despite our benevolent wishes for the innocent children who are being used as pawns in a larger political game, this is not an immigration process. The health aspect is just one of many problems of an open border. Acceptance and more funding will encourage incessant flows of more illegals. In the chaos enabled there is expansion of bureaucratic power. Previous administrations are also guilty of this tactic, yet the current president uses his own special leverage, his knowledge of the weak congress, and intimidation to push that agenda.
Regarding the border, we have compassion and benevolence toward the helpless and/or oppressed. Evidence is clear that our caring nature is being exploited. Many undesirables will also take advantage of this chaos. As evidenced, not all of them are helpless oppressed children crossing the border. The redistribution of this human traffic by our bureaucrats with a “Yes we can”…(break the law) is disturbing. However, this train has been moving down the track for a long time. An excerpt from an article by Michelle Malkin, is below. Full article can be viewed at this link.
Excerpt from “Want a Real Poverty Plan? Stop Amnesty Now.” By Michelle Malkin
“The real crisis is not at the border. It’s being fomented inside our nation’s capital. The “border crisis” is a bipartisan D.C. catastrophe of craven politicians abandoning their constitutional duties to defend our sovereignty and put American workers first.”
“While cynical politicians prattle on about protecting the American Dream, they’re working together to destroy it. If these elected officials care so much about reducing poverty, why are they working so hard to import more of it from around the world? Leaders in both political parties have thrown struggling Americans under the bus to feed the cheap illegal alien labor machine.
The working poor are the biggest losers in D.C.’s amnesty game. U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow has been a LONELY voice warning about the impact of mass illegal immigration and perpetual amnesty on low-income black Americans. “The country’s economic woes have disproportionately harmed African-Americans, especially those with little education,” he warned this spring. “The economy has a glut of low-skilled workers, not a shortage,” which is driving wages down.
Stagnant wages and DEPRESSED economic growth affect working poor Americans of all colors, while illegal alien amnesty beneficiaries cash in. Steve Camarota and Karen Ziegler of the Center for Immigration Studies reported last month that “since 2000, all of the net gain in the number of working-age (16 to 65) people holding a JOB has gone to immigrants (legal and illegal). This is remarkable given that native-born Americans accounted for two-thirds of the growth in the total working-age population. Though there has been some recovery from the Great Recession, there were still fewer working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000, while the number of immigrants with a job was 5.7 million above the 2000 level.”
President Obama has already granted administrative amnesty to an estimated two million illegal aliens and renewed “temporary” work permits for 520,000. The administration is planning an expansion that would grant amnesties to at least six million more lawbreakers.
Where is the opposition? Appeasement Republicans refuse to support Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz’s on-target proposal to repeal Obama’s “DREAM” magnet and Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Sessions’ clarion call to block any more executive amnesties as a precondition to border bill negotiations.
According to my sources on the Hill, the staffs of Sens. McCain, Flake and Murkowski met privately and opposed any changes to Obama’s DREAM passes for illegals — which makes them willing and suicidal accomplices in the perpetual Democratic voter recruitment drive.
On the HOUSE SIDE, GOP House Speaker John Boehner is also openly opposed to stopping the DREAM nightmare.
There are no longer two separate parties in Washington. There’s just one big Amnesty Inc. conglomerate addicted to Big Business donations and Big Government grievance politics. The Obama White House needs to buy off Hispanic voters, keep IMMIGRATION LAWYERS employed and secure a left-wing permanent ruling majority. Establishment Republicans need to pay off the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, pander to minority lobbyists and curry favor with open-borders CEOs led by Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg.
The real crisis is not at the border. It’s being fomented inside our nation’s capital. The “border crisis” is a bipartisan D.C. catastrophe of craven politicians abandoning their constitutional duties to defend our sovereignty and put American workers first.”
