Liberals are amazing in many ways, including their ability to bring about the very things they wish to reduce or eliminate.
Want less poverty?
Give Liberals a chance and you’ll get more poverty.
Want more compassion for the downtrodden?
Give Liberals a chance and the downtrodden will suffer more cruelly than ever before.
The latest installment of this less comes from the illegal immigration front.
Barack Obama claims to want to “keep immigrant families together”:
Under orders by Obama to make the deportation process more “humane” by keeping families together when possible, Johnson has led a review of deportation procedures. <source>
He also wants a completely open border with Mexico (never mind at major airports, where as a citizen you will be interrogated upon re-etnering the country from a trip abroad) and two years ago created by fiat the “DACA”, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. “By fiat” is a nice way of saying that he, like a king in a monarchy, made up his own laws and bypassed a duly elected Congress that had rejected his earlier attempts at weakening the border further.
Under a program that President Obama announced in 2012, about 560,000 people who were brought to the country illegally as children have been granted temporary work permits and two-year deportation deferrals.
And now that two-year deferral is up, making all these people beholden to their King for another deferral (this is how a statist undermines a democratic, free society). And yet they serve their purpose, oh yes:
Latino voters were energized by the creation of DACA and turned out in record numbers to reelect Obama in 2012.
But back to the punch line…
What do you think has been happening at the border?
Officials say a growing number of minors have tried to sneak across the Southwest border on their own during the Obama administration. Officials said 60,000 unaccompanied children may be apprehended this year…
How about that! An astounding 60,000 kids caught trying to cross the border WITHOUT their parents.
And that doesn’t even count the thousands who are not caught.
60,000+ kids put in motion and separated from their families by Barack Obama’s open border carrot!
Way to go Barack, keeping families together!!
Liberals never learn the Law of Unintended Consequences, a blind spot that will kill us all, if we let it.
