Among the many things Obama did that betrayed the trust of the American people, perhaps the worst was his handling of illegal immigration.
I doubt many Americans who supported Obama would have approved of his practice of bringing in thousands of undocumented people; many of whom would take jobs from the working class people that voted for him.
That’s probably why Obama circumvented laws, Congress, and the press when he pushed his illegal immigration agenda.
But we are only now learning how much Obama worked to flood our nation with undocumented immigrants, people who–instead of coming through the front door–were snuck in under our noses.
The Immigration Reform Law Institute revealed that a border protection agency has spent more than $100 million in taxpayers’ cash transporting young Central American migrants from the Texas border to their final destinations in the United States.
“We fought for nearly two years to get this data,” said executive director Dale Wilcox. “Now we see why the administration has been less than forthcoming and why they’ve repeatedly tried to blame the costly… surge [of migrants] on Central American crime rather than its own amnesty policies.”
The decision to spend $100 million since 2014 to help the migrants adds “insult to injury,” he said.
Call Trump a racist and xenophobe all you like, but wanting to protect America from undocumented immigrants is neither. We want people to come to America, legally and safely. But when our own president is violating our laws and suppressing the facts so we don’t know about it, how can anyone sit idly by and take it?
Obama’s deputies are delivering an average of 255 illegal alien minors every single day to Office of Refugee Resettlement at the Department of Health and Human Services—which has 11,200 illegals in its care already.
This kind of system is untenable. American cities cannot sustain an endless tide of migrants, people who are undocumented, are not educated, and will only prove to be a burden on taxpayers.
The only silver lining is that under President Trump, a better system will be put into place. But perhaps the damage already done is too much to correct.
