An Orchestrated Immigration Wave At The Texas Border? Not So Paranoid To Think So
Immigration: As an unprecedented wave of undocumented children from Central America spills over our Texas border, a veteran lawmen's organization has declared it an "orchestrated" event. If so, who benefits?
To date, there hasn't been a word from the White House or its agencies urging families in Honduras, Guatemala or El Salvador not to send their children alone through Mexico's merciless badlands infested with cartel criminals to reach the U.S. There's some Twitter activity and little else.
But the newspapers and television stations throughout Central America are falsely reporting that amnesty will be theirs if they can just make it through the Mexican obstacle course - and that the time to do it is now.
It doesn't matter that these children are likely to succumb to desert heat, be snatched by vicious human traffickers, forced into prostitution, slavery or the drug trade, or simply murdered as has already happened to thousands, as the white crosses at the border can attest.
Not since the radio broadcasts that triggered Rwanda's Tutsi massacres in 1994 has such false information been spread unchecked by authorities who might be able with just their words to make a difference.
U.S. embassy websites still have no warnings to Central Americans about not sending children north, and until recently the U.S. embassy in Guatemala's website prominently featured links to President Obama's campaign website with his speech declaring to Guatemalans that "our immigration system is broken."
So no wonder the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers, after 50,000 apprehensions of border crossers in south Texas, declared this week that "certainly we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States government."
Besides the valuable observations of veteran lawmen who know the patterns of the border and can spot anomalies, the evidence that the flood of illegals is an orchestrated event, and not spontaneous, is piling up.
Not long ago, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, a foe of illegal immigration, stated that based on evidence he'd seen and conversations he had with lawmen, there appeared to be an ongoing political campaign to destroy law enforcement at the border - something the former border agents called an effort to create "a failed state" on the border. If so, it's a page straight out of the Cloward-Piven theory President Obama was so influenced by as a community organizer and at Columbia.
Meanwhile, Vice President Joe Biden, who frequently lets the truth slip out beyond the spin, stated this week that America needs a "constant" inflow of immigrants, supporting the argument that the White House is seeking a vast pool of illegal immigrants to ensure a long-term stream of Democrat voters.
The strategy is to create chaos - not just to punish political opponents such as Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, whose state is becoming a dumping ground for Obama's catch-and-release policy.
The idea of inflicting chaos for political purposes has been White House border policy for some time, based on its Fast and Furious scandal, in which thousands of U.S. weapons were allowed to reach Mexico's cartels. It was done to create chaos in Mexico and the U.S. and, as a result, to whip up public support for gun control.
Such a strategy requires political loyalists, not lawmen dedicated to the law first. In 2009, President Obama so badly wanted La Raza board director Mari Aponte as U.S. ambassador to El Salvador that he installed her in the job in a recess appointment.
That conflict of interest between U.S. immigration law and La Raza - a group that strongly opposes U.S. immigration law- didn't concern Obama. Indeed, it seemed that was why Aponte appealed to him. And he appointed her despite her anti-American past, including a relationship with an agent of Cuba's secret intelligence service, the DGI. That scuppered her nomination as ambassador to the Dominican Republic in 1998.
There will be many who dismiss concerns about an orchestrated campaign. But the signs are everywhere. And there's just one beneficiary to this misery on the border - the Obama White House.
