"Send Me Your Terrorists, Your Kidnappers, Your Huddling Masses of Murderers Looking For A More Target Rich Environment"
Would it be going too far to say that Barack Obama has never seen a criminal he wants to slow down or punish? He has enjoyed the friendship of Tony Rezko and Bill Ayers. Way too many of the men he appointed to high office laughed while they broke tax laws and have yet to be called to answer for their crimes. Since we have only his questionable word to rely on we do not know the full extent and nature of his relations with ACORN. We do know that his campaign paid ACORN many hundreds of thousands of dollars to register voters and that an unusually large number of nonexistent people as well as sports stars and cartoon characters were delivered by ACORN as voters. But there has been no sign of a troubled conscience from the president. All this crime and we see not the least sign of embarrassment from the president. A high profile pedophile is at last being brought to justice and many prominent members of the president’s party flood us with an endless chain of weak excuses and fishy rationalizations for releasing the predator back onto society. So part of me is not surprised by Obama’s move to weaken our Southern border. I have to figure that Obama just doesn’t care if there will be increased crime near the border. Since I live less than a hundred miles from Mexico I do care. But I would think more Americans would care since this makes it so much easier for Muslim terrorists to enter the country and make large devastating explosions.
Here are a couple of quotes from a CNS News story about President Obama’s weakening of our border security.
"(CNSNews.com) - Even though the Border Patrol now reports that almost 1,300 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border is not under effective control, and the Department of Justice says that vast stretches of the border are “easily breached,” and the Government Accountability Office has revealed that three persons “linked to terrorism” and 530 aliens from “special interest countries” were intercepted at Border Patrol checkpoints last year, the administration is nonetheless now planning to decrease the number of Border Patrol agents deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border."
"In the May 7 update of its performance review, DHS said the Border Patrol’s goal for fiscal 2009 was to have 815 of the 8,607 miles of border for which the agency is responsible under “effective control.” The review also said the Border Patrol’s goal for fiscal 2010 was to again have 815 miles of border under “effective control,” meaning DHS was not planning to secure a single additional mile of border in the coming year."
