Terrorists or illegals, who’s crossing the border?
*This posting was written a number of days ago but with the news of Ebola now in the United States and terrorists groups openly proclaiming they will infect themselves and cross our Southern border to infect Americans I think this information is more important than ever.
Instead of clamping down hard and closing the border, the obama administration berated congress for not passing a new immigration bill, and the result was that every day hundreds if not thousands of illegals flooded across that Southern border. For the most part those that were apprehended were released into the United States and told to report back to immigration officials in 15 days. Which proves once again our leaders have a complete lack of common sense. Do they not see that if someone is a criminal, (crossing the border illegally), what makes them think they will return to hear their punishment?
At a confidential meeting in Washington on September 24th, Homeland Security met with immigration advocates to discuss detention and enforcement policies. At this meeting The Homeland Security Department privately acknowledged that about 70 percent of illegal immigrant families failed to report as ordered. That 70 percent figure suggests the government released roughly 41,000 illegal immigrants who subsequently failed to appear at federal immigration offices.
Now I am just a man with a simple high school education but even I can see that these fugitives will never surface on their own unless our government is stupid enough to pass legislation granting them amnesty. So far Congress and the Senate have held off on any legislation but the President has openly said, if congress did not act, he would enact an executive order giving these criminals amnesty, but of course he will not wait till after the mid-term elections so his actions do not effect that vote. I have always thought the constitution stated that members of Congress enact legislation, not the President who if he does not like what congress is doing he acts unilaterally.
