Ex-Border Agents: Immigrant Flood ‘Orchestrated’
In other news, water is wet and the sky is blue:
“This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes,” said the statement released by the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers.
“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,” the officers said.
It’s not only them. Gov. Jan Brewer and Sen. Jeff Sessions making similar comments:
The flood of illegal immigrants — particularly children — crossing into the U.S. along the southern border is at a “crisis” level, creating a humanitarian emergency that both immigration officials and lawmakers are putting at the feet of the Obama administration.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer called the overload a “crisis of the federal government’s creation.”
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who for years has been warning that the administration’s easing of immigration enforcement would create a crisis along the border, said: “President Obama is responsible for this calamity.”
This is exactly the fault of not only the current president, but the last, and every Republican who refuses to stand tall on border security.
This is their creation too.
