President Obama’s campaign to destroy the American way of life continues as he allows illegal immigrants to infiltrate our country unencumbered (“Illegal immigration crisis poses quandary for Democrats,” Web, July 16). Mr. Obama has betrayed us, plain and simple, by leaving us open to attack from within by thousands of criminals coming to our country under the guise of seeking sanctuary from their lawless, impoverished home countries.

The fact that terrorists have joined the influx of people seems to be of no concern of our president. He refuses to act to stop the assault on our country, instead choosing to go to fundraisers to mock the Republicans for suing him. He told one of the crowds, while laughing, that the Republicans want “to sue me for doing my job.” Actually he is being sued over the Obamacacare disaster, which he orchestrated.

The fact that our president can go before the American people and lie with impunity on just about every issue of importance should be a wake-up call for his removal from office — but it’s not. Mr. Obama said he would get to the bottom of Fast and Furious, in which a U.S. border guard was killed, and bring to justice those responsible — but he hasn’t. The same is true of the IRS and Benghazi scandals, which he now calls “phony scandals” trumped up by the Republicans.

People suffered and died in Fast and Furious and in Benghazi, so how is it that these incidents are “phony,” Mr. President? The only compassion Mr. Obama has apparently doled out has been for U.S. Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Even then, no consideration was given to the families or their loved ones who died while searching for Sgt. Bergdahl. Thanks for doing your job, Mr. President.
