Cloward-Piven at the Border

…This tidal wave of illegals is not an accident, and not entirely a result of conditions in Central America (which have deteriorated lately, but were already bad enough to inspire any sane person to seek a new life elsewhere.)  These people were summoned.  And now that they’re here, the system is collapsing beneath their weight.  In addition to the refugees flown to Arizona in the CBS News story above, the El Paso Times reports two planeloads of illegals arriving for processing.  ”The vast majority of individuals transferred were family units from Central America and Mexico with children,” according to an El Paso official.

Contrary to popular mythology about President Obama being some sort of deportation hard-liner, the truth is that most of his “deportations” were actually catch-and-release scenarios played out at the border – people who were essentially repulsed rather than caught and deported.  Such people were not counted as “deportations” in the past – remember what I said about the government cooking the books to make itself look better?  Well, catch-and-release only works when the illegal aliens in question come from Mexico.  There’s no practical method for sending the wave of families and unaccompanied minors surging in from Central America back to their homes.  They’re most likely here to stay.  And even though the Obama Administration had every reason to know they were coming, the immigration system was curiously unprepared to deal with them.  Cloward-Piven tactics work even better when the system is hollowed out and made ready for speedy collapse…

…The White House is “asking for a lot of stuff that privately they don’t think they’re going to get,” so when they get what they really wanted all along, it’ll be portrayed as a bipartisan compromise, opposed only by extremists.  They won’t be shy about pointing to the very humanitarian crisis they have deliberately created to argue that their demands must be immediately met – a tactic that will further exhaust resistance from those who are already weary of being slandered as cruel xenophobes, and holding the line against an amnesty demand the Beltway-media complex portrays as inevitable.

Soon we’ll have millions of new citizens placing heavy demands on our maternal government, with hundreds of thousands more streaming in every year, eager to claim the prizes that have been offered to them…

…Perry said “we wrote the president on May 4, 2012 saying ‘Mr. President, we have a huge problem on our southern border with these children who are coming into the country, they are being basically released’ and this administration has ignored it.” He added that the area was now more vulnerable to natural disasters because Texas often serves as a place for evacuees in the region such as the massive numbers of individuals who fled Louisiana for Texas as a result of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Perry stated “we don’t have that room available now…”…



Did the Obama administration engineer a humanitarian crisis on the border to push a progressive agenda? (video)

…President Obama came out and called this an “urgent humanitarian crisis” last Monday, and has requested an extra $1.4 billion – yes BILLION – in order to cope with the crisis. Meanwhile, over 700 kids are now being sheltered in a warehouse in Arizona.

It’s a tragic situation. No one – even the staunchest opponents to illegal immigration – want to see kids suffering in a makeshift shelter, missing their parents and longing for the better life promised by the American Dream.

But as the news cycle is dominated by the gut wrenching tragedy of the situation – no one is asking the important question: why the sudden influx of kids on the border? Why are they coming now?…


The Great Texas GOP Immigration Debate of 2014: “Texas Solution” Gone

The Republican Party of Texas (RPT) 2014 Convention delegates hammered out a new Immigration Plank in the closing minutes of the biennial event that represents the largest gathering of Republicans in the United States. The new platform plank recognizes the historical significance immigration has played from the earliest of days of this nation. It also strongly presents the need for reforming our “broken, embattled and outdated immigration system” along with the necessity of securing the borders and ports of this nation. The term “Texas Solution” is gone from the official Republican of Party of Texas Platform and the new language removes any type of guest worker program…
