The Obama Administration announced last week that this month ICE will conduct a series of raids across the country with the goal of arresting and deporting mothers and children from Central America who have entered the US illegally. Today both Democratic contenders for the presidency voiced their opposition to Obama’s plan with Hillary Clinton saying “Large scale raids are not productive and do not reflect who we are as a country.” Senator Bernie Sanders said, “Sending these people back into harms way is wrong.” Sanders was referring to the all out drug wars going on in Central America between rival drug cartels.
When I read this report I had two thoughts. First, why is Obama opposing Clinton and Sanders on this issue? Is he attempting to help Trump get elected come November? But more than that my thought was “Yeah wait a minute! Obama is the guy who let these women and children from Central America into the country in the first place and housed them in various mass camps around the country! So why the sudden reversal?”.
This is the kind of CRAP that happens when you have a two-faced government that just can’t make up its mind about ANYTHING! This is why Obama’s leadership has been grossly lacking for the past 8 years and it’s why Obama has lost MOST of his support as compared to the support he had in 2008 when he first took office as POTUS. He has a classic pattern of saying one thing and doing another AND of doing one thing and then turning around and doing the opposite. Confusing? Not really as it’s called two-faced.
Despite the outcry when Obama allowed these women and children into the country a few years back and despite his ordering the US Border Patrol to basically stand down now this president wants to conduct nationwide raids and round these people up and deport them. I can imagine the US Border Patrol must be HIGHLY CONFUSED right now. Which policy directive are they to follow? Stand down and simply watch illegals cross the border with your thumb up your ass OR arrest and deport them? WTF????
Of course the real question now is WHY has the Obama Administration suddenly gone from an apparent “Open Borders” policy to an “Arrest and Deport” policy literally overnight? Or is this a political move to help Trump get elected or……maybe not. Maybe what this is is yet another misguided attempt by Obama to get Clinton or Sanders elected by showing the nation that Democrats are now “tough on illegal immigration.” However, if that is the case both Clinton and Sanders just BLEW IT by voicing opposition to Obama’s intended move this month. Oh well, another failure for this POTUS, no?
And the beat (or what is left of it) goes on in America’s erratic pulse and, frankly, that pulse is almost nonexistent now……………………..
Oh one other thing…………………
The article claims, “During his tenure, Obama has had more people deported than any other US president.” That MAY be true BUT he’s also allowed MORE illegals into the US illegally than any other president! Just a little REALITY CHECK THERE AOL News!
