Tens of thousands do not show up at our border unless it was planned in advance!

President Obama set the border crisis in motion with his speech in 2012 announcing that as long as illegal aliens met his conditions, they would not be deported. He laid out this recipe in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. This policy, along with discussions within Congress of granting amnesty to the 25 million illegal aliens coupled by poor border security created the mess we have today at our southern border.

Further evidence that the administration planned and expected the border crisis, was the revelation that the Department of Homeland Security solicited bids in January 2014 for a government contract for “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children” in expectation of the arrival of 65,000 minors on our southern border without parents or guardians.

It is becoming clear, that the border crisis was an intentional act to overwhelm U.S. Border Patrol, so it would force the Congress into accepting the President’s immigration policy. This act not only disregards the rule of law but it places our citizens at risk. This deceitful strategy was created in concert with others in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, to foster a mass illegal migrant crossing into America.

These migrants are not refugees; they are paying $10,000 per person to be smuggled into America from OAS- certified democracies. The governments of these countries, whom American taxpayers contribute hundreds of millions of dollars each year, foster illegal migration into America because it is a great source of revenue for their country and a source of their own personal wealth.

It’s one thing to try to gain an upper hand in politics but quite another when you cause the deaths of many innocent young lives. The pawns in this game are the children traveling over 2,000 miles in brutal heat with no food or water, lead by rapists and drug smugglers with the expectation that they can stay in America. It is then unconscionable to overwhelm our cities and towns that are forced to bear the brunt of this disastrous policy. A policy that is nothing more than human trafficking.

Americans are some of the most giving and forgiving people in the world. We can always be counted on for compassion and helping our neighbors. Sadly, politicians know this and use it against us for political gain. This border crisis is just another example.

No one wants to see people suffering, especially children. But if we are already struggling because of a poor economy, 25 million Americans without a job, skyrocketing food and gas prices, how can we accept more unskilled foreign labor on top of our already indigenousness unskilled labor? How can our communities accept more people, when they don’t have the resources to take care of those already here? Why are we treating migrants from Central America differently than those from any other part of the world? Why are the President and Congress manufacturing problems when the middle class can’t make ends meet?

It’s time we stand up and demand that immigration reform cannot begin without first securing the border and deal with the 25 million illegal aliens already here.

The bottom line: If we can’t control our borders, we are not a country and if we are not a country then nothing else matters!

The government is us; we are the government,
you and I.
