Pundits have been debating
whether the humanitarian crisis on our southern border demonstrates Obama’s
incompetence or his limitations.
I would suggest neither. I
suggest that the deluge of illegal alien children, a deluge of biblical
proportions, is neither innocent nor accidental but a part of the president’s
deliberate and malevolent plan to fundamentally transform America.
It is a part of the president’s
strategy, motivated by what seems to be a visceral animus toward this country
as founded, to dilute American culture and diminish it, to flood this land with
millions of newcomers who do not share our values, our heritage and our history
and who have no intention of becoming Americans in soul and spirit.
That’s fine with this president.
After all, why would we want foreigners to embrace the inherent racism, greed,
and colonialism on which this country was founded?
There is little or no spirit of
“E Pluribus Unum” among this torrent of illegal invaders. They have not come to
adapt or adjust, they have come to demand benefits of all kinds, whether it’s
food, housing, education or size 6XL underwear. And this president will see to
it that our reeling economy is drained to the bottom of the pool to see that
they get them.
Only 30% of our Border Patrol
agents are even patrolling the border looking for bad guys. Instead, they are
tied up making sandwiches, heating formula and changing diapers. These
“detention centers” are surrounded with chain link fences, locked gates and barbed
wire, and are patrolled by guards who call themselves “Brown Shirts.” These
aren’t refugee centers, they are concentration camps.
This dramatic weakening of our
border security likewise fits into the president’s agenda of grinding America
down. Human traffickers, sex traffickers, and drug traffickers have virtually
unimpeded access to our sovereign territory because the people who are supposed
to keep us safe have been hauled off to daycare.
If these hundreds of thousands
of alien children are allowed permanent residency in the United States, as will
almost certainly be the case, their presence will fundamentally alter every
place in America where they wind up.
Some schools in North Carolina
are reporting that immigrants, legal and illegal, already represent a majority
of their student bodies. These are children with limited education, limited
linguistic skills in English, and limited educational support at home from
parents who don’t speak our national language.
The educational prospects of
such children is dim at best. And what is even worse, by slowing the learning
process to a crawl, they are doing positive harm to English speaking children
who show up at school ready to learn but aren’t being taught. They are being
held back as much as if they had flunked a grade. Or two.
Thus the overall skill and
educational level of the American people is being steadily and devastatingly
eroded day by day.
Border Patrol agents are openly
complaining that they are being forced to allow known drug cartel members into
the U.S. as long as they are under the age of 18. These murderous thugs are
being shipped all over the United States, making every community where they
settle less safe from violence and their children less safe from drugs.
Governors, including members of
the president’s own party, are complaining that illegal aliens are being dumped
by the plane load in their communities with no notice whatsoever.
The whole thing is frankly too
absurd to be accidental. We’re being told that we must let these children into
the U.S. because they are fleeing violence in their home countries, and then we
send hundreds of them to Chicago?
The press gave considerable coverage this weekend to the
funeral of Gilberto
Francisco Ramos Juarez, the 15-year-old boy who got lost trying to sneak
into the U.S. and died in the desert. His body was returned to his mother in
the mountains of Guatemala and his funeral was held on Saturday.
This shows us one critically
important thing: we can return these children to their parents. We can find
them, even in the mountains of Central America, and get them home. It’s time to
start doing that while they are alive instead of waiting until they are dead.
