I’m not going to continue bashing our rapidly growing immigration problem, today. I don’t see the point when my voice clearly isn’t supposed to mean anything. Not in President Obama’s eyes, anyway.
He’s made it very clear that this is his decision to make. Not ours.
It’s his country to dictate. Not ours to manage.
Through actions and words alike, Obama has repeatedly said as much over the last six years. He wants us to shut up and let him do his thing.
Because again, it’s his country, his rules. If we don’t like it, we can go elsewhere. Maybe to Mexico?
Except that, oops. It isn’t that easy crossing the border that way. They kinda frown on illegal immigration down there. As well we shouldn’t. So sayeth Obama.
We don’t have any other say in the matter.
So what that his fellow democrat, Congressman Henry Cuellar from Texas, says that illegal immigration is “certainly a critical situation. Because if you’re just looking at the lower Rio Grande Valley, we’re getting about 1,200 people a day. Over 70 percent of them are not from Mexico but from other places, and 300 to 400 of them are young people coming in without parents.”
And why should I care that “Almost 40 percent of the Border Patrol Agents are not at the border. They’re actually filling out paperwork, transporting, feeding, moving these folks around,” as Cuellar also notes. Or how he thinks “we’re facing a situation where the smuggling organizations know that if you send them to South Texas and they’re not Mexicans – they’re from other countries – they’re going to be released after a while.”
It’s not really my business that Attorney General Eric Holder believes (or says he believes) “we’re taking a historic step to strengthen our justice system and protect the rights of the most vulnerable members of society” through these actions. So what that we’re helping these law-breaking non-citizens at the expense of our legal residents?
It’s not up to us.
After all, this isn’t really The United States of America. It hasn’t been for years now. Not since 2008 when we elected one of the most conceited sociopaths ever to run for president.
This is Obama’s America. And in his mind at least, it’s not worth much of anything.
