Sarah Palin is apparently so upset over the Republican response to border security and undocumented minors being sent to a warehouse in Arizona that she is close to jumping off the Republican ship.
After the news broke that a warehouse holding center in Arizona was filled with hundreds of undocumented minors living in sub-human conditions, Americans with a variety of political opinions demanded answers. According to Talking Points Memo, over 700 children were in the warehouse and the number was expected to exceed 1,000 within a week. In a semi-shocking response, former half-term governor of Alaska and former vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, blasted Republicans for their lack of force on border security on her official Facebook page.
"Finally, they have won me over. I actually agree with the liberals’ war whoop. I, too, demand that this issue of young illegal aliens flooding across our border into horrendous conditions be taken care of. Now! Uncompassionate people, wake up! Though it’s claimed by Democrats ad nauseam to justify more spending to pile on our $17 trillion debt, and it’s applied to every single “crisis” their policies conjure up, and no matter the cause you’re labeled a racist if you disagree with their policies, well, this time it really IS for the children."
Palin continued her thoughts, noting that as a mother, she can't stand to see children in such conditions while referring to the GOP as her "former" friends.
"I say this as a mother – a bleeding-heart compassionate woman and mother. I say, how dare anyone turn a blind eye and further harden your horrid heart when you see these pictures snuck out of the innocent children’s holding pens – snuck out because our government is censoring images released. It must be my (former) friends in the GOP ordering this censorship because Democrat leadership knows better than to EVER spy on or censor the press; they’d NEVER infringe on the First Amendment. So, for shame, Republicans....
These victims are brought here (by SOMEONE in authority in their own countries) facing sweltering 110-degree Arizona heat, illness, unsanitary conditions with unbelievable hygiene issues, Texan food the kids don’t like because it’s too foreign to them, and possibly sexual exploitation. By any definition, this is child abuse!"
Palin is such disgusted by the situation that she is ready to complexly abandon the Republican party.
"As a Christian I find it unforgivable to ignore this issue of overrunning border security into these conditions in southern states, and this one issue is just about driving me to renounce my Republican ties because, see, even leaders on the RIGHT side of the aisle haven’t exerted all Constitutional power to stop the madness."
Palin's Republican bashing was kept to a minimum, but it was heard loud and clear, but she wasn't about to give up on her typical Obama bashing either.
"Congress and American voters, how long will you let Team Obama get away with this? The recent avalanche of devastating crises caused by a president believing he is above the law has set the most dangerous precedent a once-free people can imagine. To encourage and reward lawlessness by refusing to enforce the will of the people as proven by laws passed by our political representatives is the signature of a tyrant. In this case, Obama’s refusal to enforce immigration laws and his blatant suggestion that his chosen illegal activity will be rewarded are proof of his tyrannical tactics."
After the U.s. Border Patrol was overwhelmed by nearly 50,000 unaccompanied minors crossing the border into Texas, the Department of Homeland Security began flying hundreds of children to the Arizona warehouse. Photos were released and the public was shocked. Palin appeared to have sympathy, but she ended her post stating that "the primary expenditure we need to supply in this humanitarian crisis is jet fuel to fly these children back home to their parents."
