Obama Opens Borders to Terrorists to Punish Americans Over Sequester

For-Hypocrisy-Push-JuanThe sequester was President Obama’s idea back in 2011 to begin with.  He thought it was an effective extortion tool to force Republicans to do things his way, because he was not willing to compromise on anything.  But it backfired and the Republicans for once stood their ground and called the president’s bluff.

Like all bullies, Obama is blaming the Republicans for his sequester and he is doing his best to make it hurt the public as much as possible so that they will blame the GOP.  An email that was leaked by a Department of Agriculture field officer indicated that the Obama administration had given instructions to make the sequestration cuts hurt Americans as much as possible.

Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR) commented on the leaked email, saying:

“This email confirms what many Americans have suspected: The Obama administration is doing everything they can to make sure their worst predictions come true and to maximize the pain of the sequester cuts for political gain.”

“You can’t do anything that is inconsistent with the negative impact that we’ve told everybody these cuts are going to have.”

In a further demonstration of the president’s sequester tantrum, it was announced earlier this week that 60,000 federal employees that are responsible for protecting and securing our international borders have been told that they will be furloughed for up to 14 days.  This includes Border Patrol and Port of Entry agents.

David Aguilar, Deputy Commissioner of the US Customs and Border Protection Agency reported that he has been instructed to cut $754 million from his budget between now and the end of the fiscal year, September 30.  In order make the necessary cuts, they will initiate a hiring freeze, reduce or eliminate compensatory time and overtime.  They plan on reducing travel and training expenses, which means border patrol agents may have their patrols cut short or reduced.  A reduction in training may place some agents at risk.

Jenny Burke, a spokesperson for the Customs agency said:

“Even with these cuts, though, individuals apprehended illegally crossing the southwest border will still be processed as usual.”

She has to be joking.  Obama already gave orders to start releasing thousands of illegals that were being detained and awaiting deportation.  Telling us it’s going to be business as usual along the Mexico border seems to be an outright lie.

For once, I have to agree with a labor union, the one that represents about 24,000 Customs agency employees.  Colleen M, Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union, said the sequestration budget cuts are going to ‘undercut’ national security.  It will also result in a loss of federal revenue because the only other federal agency that collects more money for the federal government is the IRS.

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Insecurity, says that the reduction of customs agents will result in huge delays for anyone having to pass through Customs.  She predicts those delays could be 150%-200% of the time it took to clear Customs before the sequester took effect.

One of the main provisions of the sequester is that alternative cuts could be substituted for the more painful and dangerous ones.  However, everything so far indicates Obama would rather place the nation’s security and welfare at risk and make the cuts as painful as possible for political reasons only.  He cares more about his agenda than he does the nation and the people and he’s proving it by how he is handling HIS sequestration.

    Harold: most people are so frustrated and tired of this “immigration, sequestration , illegals, nation of immigrant, cut here cut there” It is coming full circle, the hordes crossing our borders have become our responsibility to properly care for them?????. A close look at the situation will reveal they are not starving Somalian with no alternative, they all have homes and families, Mexico is a democracy and a rich country. To prove they are man thy can fight for their right in Mexico instead of producing 12 children. Time for Ms. Napolitano to stop scaring us and apply proper force to the illegals. Don’t dump them on us they are not the gentle hard working Mexican of 50 years ago, Pride in La Raza took care of that, gave them pride and rights to take back what was Mexico and we took from them. Secure the borders by
    force if necessary and drive them back to the closest Mexican Agency across the border to process. WE may even help pay for a detaining center in Mexico. Also, as was done to other farm workers, they may not bring their wives and have children here. I checked the costitution,no such obligations.
