President Obama has talked up the DREAM Act of amnesty for young illegals and browbeaten Congress to pass it, using executive orders when it didn’t. He’s also let it be known he’s not enforcing U.S. deportation laws.
Now we have a full-blown refugee crisis. They’re convinced that amnesty is theirs if they just reach U.S. soil.
Nobody needs to remind them that this is potentially disastrous — 14-year-old children shouldn’t be traveling alone, let alone through Mexican cartel territory by themselves. They risk robbery, murder and human slavery, if they aren’t forced into the drug trade.
So are the U.S. embassies in those countries warning locals about those dangers? Not in the least.
On the U.S. embassy website in Guatemala, the front page has a link to Obama’s campaign website, which opens to a page reading “our immigration system is broken,” in quite an enticing message to would-be illegals.
Over in El Salvador, the U.S. ambassador, Mari Carmen Aponte, is a former board member of La Raza, known for its advocacy of illegals as well as pushing immigrants to become Democrat voters.
Any sign she’s trying to discourage anyone? Not at all.
