The manufactured conflagration on our southern border and resultant humanitarian crisis finds the Obama-led Democratic Party expecting Americans to believe that the nation that won World War II, put a man on the moon and survived Jimmy Carter can’t secure its own border or national sovereignty.

According to National Review Online, the Center for Immigration Studies, citing Bureau of Labor Statistics figures, recently reported that “net employment growth in the U.S. since 2000 has gone entirely to immigrants, legal and illegal.” The report found “that there were 127,000 fewer working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000, while the number of immigrants with a job was 5.7 million above the 2000 level.” To paraphrase our bipartisan amnesty advocates: They are taking all the jobs Americans will do, in addition to the jobs Americans will not do.

Requesting $3.7 billion in public money to provide transportation, health care and housing, the federal government will strategically disperse 290,000 illegals throughout the United States — at taxpayer expense. This will bankrupt state and local governments while allowing our veterans to die on fraudulent Veterans Administration waiting lists.

Those jeopardizing America’s safety by invading Texas carrying lice, scabies and tuberculosis are not “migrants,” “refugees” or “immigrants.” They’re a Third World invasion orchestrated and facilitated by President Obama to complete his “fundamental transformation” and demolition of the republic.

I await the president’s executive order relocating the Statue of Liberty to the Rio Grande as a magnet for more illegality and inclusiveness, perverting the rule of law to benefit the lawless at the expense of the law-abiding.
