Ross Douthat: Obama’s Dangerous Policy
“Over the last month, the Obama political apparatus — a close aide to the president, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the “independent” voices at MSNBC — has been talking nonstop about an alleged Republican plan to impeach the president . . . Anyone paying attention knows that no such impeachment plan is currently afoot. So taken on its own, the impeachment chatter would simply be an unseemly, un-presidential attempt to raise money and get out the 2014 vote,” says Ross Douthat.
“But it isn’t happening in a vacuum, because even as his team plays the impeachment card with gusto, the president is contemplating — indeed, all but promising — an extraordinary abuse of office: the granting of temporary legal status, by executive fiat, to up to half the country’s population of illegal immigrants.”
Leaked Report Shows Many Countries Represented in Illegal Immigration
“A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries. The report was obtained by a trusted source within the CBP agency who leaked the document and spoke with Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity,” Breitbart News says.
With Congress in Recess, Work Remains
“With Congress gone for August, the duty of trying to stop the illegal immigrant surge on the southern border now belongs to President Obama and border governors — chiefly Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who said Sunday he will move ahead with plans to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops on the border,” Washington Times.
“One top Republican warned that the border is increasingly being tested by potentially dangerous illegal immigrants — including those associated with terrorists or enemy countries’ armed forces.”
