According to CNN, the Obama administration has unveiled a plan to spend millions of dollars to stem the tide of undocumented children streaming across the U.S. Mexico border by announcing a coordinated government-wide response to the situation. Did they say ‘stem the tide”? That’s odd because the U.S. Government is causing the situation, not stopping it.
On January 14 the government advertised for bids from contractors who could escort 65,000 illegal children. Since that number is way over the normal amount of children who cross the border, the question must be asked “How did the federal government know there would be a surge of children across the border?”See the government RFI here and the text is at the end of the article. So the President is the bad guy that created this mess, and now, with the help of U.S. tax dollars, will play the good guy that's seeking a solution. Is anyone buying this act?
The U.S. Border Patrol has never seen the border so crowded as it does now. Along with illegals, terrorists, rapists and murderers also come across the border and cannot be caught because the Border Patrol is babysitting. These illegals could come from Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan.
Documentarian Dennis Michael Lynch talked with Border Patrol agents. At the same time the escort ad was placed, a shocking directive was given to the Border Patrol. According to a Border Patrol agent, whose identity will remain anonymous, the Border Patrol was told, in January of this year, to release alien families into the general public . Take a look at this video and fast forward to the 2:35 mark in the video and hear the BP agent tell Dennis all about the crazy directive and how it was delivered one morning during roll call. The decision to release illegal aliens into the general public is not the sort of move that can be made by the Border Patrol. No doubt it came from high up the chain of command in Washington, D.C.
Put the RFI advertisement together with the directive to release families and you can’t help but think this was all a grand plan sent down from the White House. With the midterm elections just months away, consider the possible angles this story can take. The liberals and their pals in the mainstream media will paint Democrats as compassionate, pro-immigration advocates who want immigration reform to pass so that this sort of humanitarian crisis doesn’t . The next paragraph will blast the conservatives for delaying immigration reform. And of course that will be because we are heartless people who are anti-immigrant and anti-Latino. It’s so predictable, it’s so false, it’s so Obama.
