When is Enough Enough?

Lawlessness and Illegal Immigration

I want you to read this article about the current border crisis. Then, go to The Drudge Report and read several other linked articles about the current flood—and I do mean flood—of illegal aliens coming into the United States. Many of them are minors, and as you can see, the conditions are not good at all.

I've been trying to avoid stridency for quite a while even when my dander gets up. But my dander is up, and it actually has less to do with the immigration issue as it does lawlessness. Most importantly, the utter, apparent lawlessness of President Obama and his Administration. Start tallying everything up—and no, they are not "phony scandals." Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS targeting conservatives, and now, a flood of illegals who have been pretty much encouraged to stampede in due to the intent of the Administration, deny it as they will. It's demonstrable. This is a direct result of Administration orders on how to handle the border. The illegals know it, and they're taking full advantage of it.

As an aside, why are they all being dumped in Arizona? I can't prove it, but I suspect it's a manner of payback to Governor Jan Brewer, who has been vocally critical of the Administration's handling of immigration, border control, and other issues. If that is indeed the case, it's very petty if not cruel. Not just to the governor, but to the people of Arizona.

Add to this why we're told the latest batch of illegals is coming. I suspect (again) that it has less to do with Honduras being a hotbed of crime and much more to do with what I will call phony promises of pie in the sky. There will be no "American Dream" to gain if America is destroyed through evil and stupidity. I think the reason the Administration is doing this is twofold—both to cause more chaos in the country as true Alinskyites, AND to add to the tally of what they believe will be future voters for the Democrats.

All that aside, there is a matter of LAW here. Read the presidential oath of office and what it says the president is supposed to do. It says to faithfully execute the LAWS of the United States. In my view, intentional failure to carry out that function is grounds for impeachment and removal from office. There is just no excuse for this.

I am hopeful that the defeat of Eric Cantor in Virginia yesterday sends a strong signal to the GOP. Stop caving and compromising, and take a stand for the country you've sworn to serve.
