The crisis on our border should forever remain a testament to the priorities of a President whom places the ideology of his party above his allegiance to the country. The outrage expressed by legal citizens whom call the United States of America home has been suppressed by a government practically unrecognizable as they are consumed by the ideology of the President.
What this looks like in action is a government whom feels they have the authority to silence medical officials from voicing their concerns over the diseases illegal immigrants are bringing into the country. By using the the threat of arrest, the Brown Shirts have effectively silenced all legitimate health concerns surrounding the conditions at illegal immigrant detaining facilities.
As if that wasn’t enough, on Monday the federal government took action to protect illegal immigrants. Dressed in riot gear, the government escorted buses of illegal immigrants into the California town of Murrieta against the will of the citizens whom protested against it. With the border remaining seemingly open, one has to question why the government wouldn’t allocate resources to protect it.
On Wednesday, we were then treated to an Obama press conference as he declared he wasn’t interested in visiting the border during his two-day fundraising swing through Texas. After landing in Dallas, the President addressed the question of if he would visit the border, in stating that “This isn’t theater. This is a problem. I’m not interested in photo ops“.
Obama then urged congress to “fast track” his request for $3.7 billion in funding to address the border crisis. He further declared, “This should not be hard”. He then concluded the conference in cynical fashion by asking the hypocritical question, “Are we more interested in politics or solving the problem?”
The President preceded to answer this question immediately following his speech as he attended a fundraiser hosted by a wealthy democrat donor by the name of Robert Rodriguez.
In the words of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), “For President Obama, it’s all politics all the time”.
The Democrat party is Obama’s sole priority for a fundraising event cannot be delayed for mere inconsequential problems such as securing our nation’s border. It is truly unbelievable to witness a President give precedence to the party and it’s infuriating to watch the government suppress American citizen’s as they protect illegal immigrants.
We are entering the age of post-constitutional soft tyranny as described by Alexis de Tocqueville. Tocqueville wrote, “It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting”.
What Tocqueville defined is the reality we face today. The will of our country has been deliberately misguided by the ideology of the President whom orchestrated this crisis in order to further his parties agenda of amnesty.
It is no coincidence that on January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security solicited a request for help in transporting “approximately 65,000 UAC” (Unaccompanied Alien Children). The request labeled Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children outlines the fact that the government itself knew of this “sudden influx” almost six months ago. They actually planned for it as the request explains the need of a contractor for, “transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States”.
The government knew the immigrants were coming and instead of allocating the resources needed at the border to protect our country from the incoming UAC’s, they actively sought to transport them “throughout the continental United States”.
Furthermore, when they arrived “suddenly” the illegal immigrants were protected and actively distributed throughout our country. When Tocqueville wrote, “men are seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting”, he captures the essence of how American citizen’s feel with the actions of our government. Yet, these feelings fail in comparison to the animosity felt against Barack Obama and his Democrat party of ideologues.
At the end of the day it amounts to this, if we are to have open borders our country will inevitably collapse. Currently, as we continue to provide more money and resources to illegal immigrant children, we are at the same time giving away the American dream for our own children.
