Before I get into the topic of border security, I want to make it clear that I think immigrants, migrants, or refugees need to be treated with dignity and respect. I think if they are hungry and thirsty they should be fed and if they need medical attention it should be provided. I think they need appropriate, humane billeting while they await their court hearings. I also think we should follow our laws and deport the people that do not have valid reasons for being granted asylum here.
Our southern border is less secure than it has ever been, while we are spending more for security than we ever have. President Barack Obama always says the right things while he and his minions are doing the opposite of what he says. I call these deceptions lies, but many are reluctant to call the President a liar. I do not know why they would feel this way, since he is so blatant with his lies. This administration changed the way they count deportations. For the first time in our history, they started counting people refused entry into the country as deportees. In other words, they had intent to deceive the American people.
There are two reasons for the lack of security on the border. First, President Obama and Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano decided to stop enforcing our border laws. Since Napolitano resigned, Jeh Johnson has been appointed to the department to keep the same policies of deception.
They moved the border patrol forty miles into the US away from the border, virtually ceding a large portion of Texas, Arizona and California to the drug cartels. Second, President Obama made it clear he did not intend to deport young people who crossed the border illegally.
Another lie is that all the people crossing the border now are young children, yet every picture you see of the immigrants you see children accompanied by adults and a lot of men between sixteen and twenty five, many sporting gang tattoos.
There are news reports from all over the world about radical Islamist coming into the US through Mexico. Our solution to this issue is to not require an ID for transportation as our government deploys infiltrators around the country. I think this behavior by our government is foolish, dangerous and illegal.
