Immigration Insanity

President Obama has instituted a foolish immigration policy based on nothing more than idealistic, personal feelings. This is aggravating ongoing immigration problems, creating new ones, and sending a message to the world that crossing the border illegally is the easy way to immigrate to the U.S. and receive government benefits. It is insanity.

Obama made it clear to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that many immigration laws currently on the books should not be enforced. He then issued an executive order halting deportation of young illegal immigrants. He has set a personal policy in place that is snowballing into a nightmare.

Border officials and family and immigration court systems are now overwhelmed with children traveling without parents crossing into the U.S at our Southwest border. There has been a 92% increase over last year (47,000 caught since October) of children illegally crossing the border, a direct result of Obama’s executive order. It is predicted that there will be 60,000 or more children caught crossing the border this year.

To deal with this influx, the administration is now going to provide lawyers for these children, helping them fight our laws to remain in the country. This is in addition to having to provide food and shelter. It is certainly admirable, and necessary, to provide aid for these helpless children, but they have been put in jeopardy by Obama’s executive order. Creating a border crossing free-for-all enticed desperate parents to allow their children to set out on such a perilous and illegal journey.

Illegal immigration problems have been exasperated by Obama’s supplanting of existing laws with his own laws. Furthermore, refusal to secure the border, a pre-requisite for reform, continues to be his administration’s stance in discussions of reform. The results of his policies are pouring in across our borders.

We must stop the insanity by sealing the border and allowing real reform, not just amnesty, to be discussed. How much more damage will be incurred before that happens?

One Response to “Immigration Insanity”

  1. Bruce Says:

    Using young children to affect political events is highly immoral and wrong!

    Obama, Reid, and Pelosi have no problem using young people as soulless faces in socialist collective.

    The value of their actions exposes what the democrats are willing to do fundamentally change America.
