President Obama’s administration is dedicated to maintaining an appearance of effectiveness but thoroughly unwilling to commit to producing actual results.
Though Obama has violated U.S. law in order to offer amnesty to millions of illegals in the U.S. via executive order, he has recently pledged to conduct raids to round-up illegals while, simultaneously, working to sabotage this endeavor.
Last week, the Obama Administration declared that they intended to conduct raids through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to round-up individuals “who pose a threat to national security, public safety and border security.” The raids are expected to take place in early 2016.
Of course, conventional wisdom demands that raids, by their very nature, should be kept secret until the moment they are carried-out. With weeks of warning, the Obama Administration has ensured that those who meet the incredibly-narrow criteria for who are disallowed from remaining in the country illegally will hunker-down and hide until the coast is clear.
If Obama were truly interested in conducting raids to rid the country of violent illegals, he would not have offered the heads-up.
Predictably, amnesty organizations are now offering helping hands to illegals as they endure the coming raids. Many churches are now offering sanctuary for those who will be deported if found.
Fox News reports on the churches and their efforts to harbor criminals:
Leaders from the Sanctuary Movement, which has granted safe haven from deportation to at least 10 immigrants in the last year and a half, joined Democratic presidential candidates and human rights groups in criticizing the Obama administration’s crackdown. Referencing the Christmas holiday, the movement made mention of the Nativity story of Mary and Joseph being turned away from the village inn before giving birth to Jesus in a stable.
The organization encompasses about 50 congregations in a dozen U.S. cities, Rev. Alison Harrington, pastor of Southside Presbyterian Church in Tucson told the Washington Post.
The left pretends that there exists some fundamental human right to come to the United States. No such right exists. Those who come here in violation of our laws must be dealt with appropriately and that includes severe jail time for those who repeatedly violate our laws by entering the country illegally.
President Obama’s self-sabotage on this matter echoes other “efforts” that have been laughably undercut by his radical agenda.
The military has been gutted and ripped-apart by infusing it with social experiments within the ranks and the “war on terror” has become a sick (and costly) joke.
Not only did Obama violate U.S. law by offering five terrorists for one American deserter, but the Obama Administration has also recently revealed that they are dropping bombs on ISIS targets only after offering a 45-minute advanced warning via leaflets to ISIS fighters.
This same administration has also revealed that 75% of their military engagements end without having dropped any ordnance out of paralyzing fear that civilians may get hurt.
Either we are a nation of laws or we are not. Either we are committed to destroying those who seek to destroy us in the name of Allah or we are not.
These half-measures coupled with deliberate sabotage are not only costly and pathetic, but they are downright criminal.
With more than a year to go of this disastrous presidency, Republicans should not only focus on who will take the seat after Obama is gone, but they should be looking for options to remove him from office before he has the chance to do further damage to the country.
