Why I do not trust President Obama

images (5)If I could explain why I do not trust President Obama, this is on top of the list of his transgressions that have been knowingly, willfully, and one of the greatest undermining acts that have been ripping us up as a sovereign Nation.

A federal judge in Texas late last week accused the Obama administration of aiding drug cartels, saying that instead of enforcing immigration laws, agents knowingly helped smuggle an illegal immigrant girl into the U.S. to live with her mother, also an illegal immigrant, in Virginia.

In a 10-page order, Judge Andrew S. Hanen said the case was the fourth such case he has seen over the last month, and in each instance Customs and Border Protection agents have helped to locate and deliver the children to their illegal immigrant parents.

The judge said in each case, the taxpayers footed the bill for flights — including flights to multiple locations in different parts of the U.S. that it took to find one of the children’s parents.

Ugh, just a mere man.

Ugh, just a mere man.

“The DHS is rewarding criminal conduct instead of enforcing the current laws. More troubling, the DHS is encouraging parents to seriously jeopardize the safety of their children,” the judge said, adding that some of the children have been made to swim the Rio Grande River or traverse remote areas as part of the smuggling.

In the case before the judge last week, a 10-year-old girl whose mother, Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos, paid a smuggler to get the daughter from El Salvador across the border and to Virginia.
The agents apprehended the smuggler and the young girl, and prosecuted the smuggler, but delivered the daughter to Ms. Salmeron Santos in Virginia, even though agents were aware she was in the country illegally.

“The DHS, instead of enforcing our border security laws, actually assisted the criminal conspiracy in achieving its illegal goals,” the judge said. “It completed the mission of the conspiracy initiated by Salmeron Santos. In summary, instead of enforcing the laws of the United States, the government took direct steps to help the individuals who violated it. A private citizen would, and should, be prosecuted for this conduct.”

Judge Hanen said that Homeland Security officials regularly testify that the drug cartels control immigrant smuggling operations along the border, and he said the department’s actions in helping finish the smuggling actually end up benefiting the very cartels U.S. officials say they are trying to damage.

illegaLS“The big economic losers in this scenario are the citizens of the United States who, by virtue of this DHS policy, are helping fund these evil ventures with their tax dollars,” the judge wrote.
Homeland Security officials told the court they won’t prosecute the illegal immigrant parents for their role in the smuggling, and Judge Hanen said it appeared to be a department-wide policy. Officials did say they are considering trying to deport Salmeron Santos, though it was unclear whether that had been done.

The cases highlight a growing problem along the border of what the government terms unaccompanied alien children, or UACs. Apprehensions of UACs jumped 81 percent from 2010 to 2012; suggesting more illegal immigrant parents are taking the risk of having their children leave home to join them in the U.S.

The young children present sympathetic cases, just as do those already in the country, known as Dreamers, after the Dream Act legislation (?).

President Obama last year announced a new policy to halt deportations of those young illegal immigrants, arguing they were brought to the U.S. by their parents with no say in the decision, and so should be allotted special treatment.

    You completely threw me off with “cus-toms”. What is going on with that, which you are drawing attention to? I completely lost track of the article trying to figure out what is going on. Cus, as curse? An acronym? “C” for “see”; “us” for “U.S.”? I either missed something, or something is going on that I am not aware of.

      So sorry…sometimes it is in the software of my personal computer; other times it is in I believe WordPress’ new program; again sorry for any confusion.
