The Obama administration actually wants us to believe that the “Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has begun preparing for a series of raids that would target for deportation hundreds of families who have flocked to the United States since the start of last year, according to people familiar with the operation.”
Really – a series of raids? May I take you back to November of 1999? A five year old Cuban boy was found adrift on an inner tube off the coast of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He and 12 others had escaped the communist oppression of Cuba to come to America to live with relatives. Everyone but the young lad was killed on the journey, including his mother. His father was left behind.
His name, as some may recall, was (is) Elian Gonzalez. To make a long story short, the commie father wanted his son back. Florida ruled that the relatives should be able to keep him in Miami, but the U.N. and the Clinton administration didn’t agree. The feds asserted their jack-booted authority over the State and on April 22, 2000, in a pre-dawn raid, U.S. federal agents, under the authority of Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno, stormed the uncle’s house in Miami, guns a-blazing, and forcibly seized Elian Gonzalez from the home.
Witnesses say it was utterly terrifying, as agents pointed their weapons at everyone, including the five year old. It was a media frenzy and the lead story literally everywhere. And this was just one incident—over one kid the Clinton administration did not want to be here. But we are expecting to believe that Obama will dare utilize similar tactics to round up hundreds of families, including little children – which he invited? Fat chance of that!
“Experts say that the violence that was a key factor in driving people to flee Central America last year has surged again, with the homicide rate in El Salvador reaching its highest level in a generation.” So we are also expected to believe that Obama is okay with sending these families back to meet their violent end? I mean – it’s not like these people are conservatives!
If it really is as these “experts” claim, why travel all the way to the United States? Why not go to Belize, where there is no fighting? Why not just get to Mexico, or travel to South America? After all, it is closer and has a similar climate. These are rhetorical questions, of course. The answer is that Obama has put out the welcome mat for them. Recall that his administration informed Central American authorities years ago of his plan to bring in all comers.
And, like the so called “refugees” streaming into Europe, the Central American and Mexican illegal aliens are not just traveling to a country who will welcome them, but also to the promise of easy money – the nation with the greatest welfare benefits. That’s why the Syrian “refugees” are all trying to get to Germany – for the greatest government giveaways.
Still, some appear to be stupid enough to think this will happen for real – that it won’t all be for show. That, or they’ve been told by the Obamites to feign outrage. One such moron (or actor) is Gregory Chen, director of advocacy for the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He said: “It would be an outrage if the administration subjected Central American families to even more aggressive enforcement tactics.” Even more? Did we miss something?
But not everyone is buying the nonsense. “I’ll believe it when I see it,” said Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “If you have photogenic raids on a few dozen illegal families and that’s the end of it, it’s just for show. It’s just a [public relations] thing, enforcement theater.”
Krikorian is correct in his assessment. It will be nothing but theater, if it happens at all.
It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that Obama has already spoken to some federal judge, telling him or her to put a stay on his planned deportation action, so that he may then go to the press and say – “Hey, I tried, but I’m not the king – I’m just the president.”Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
