FAIR Op-ed: Administration’s Latest Attempt to Deceive the American Public about Enforcement

homepage_opedIn an op-ed published on Townhall.com, I discuss why the administration’s immigration enforcement actions against 121 Central American illegal aliens is likely a ploy to convince the American public that they are attempting to stem the border surge, and how the feigned outrage by the illegal alien activists is part of the plan.

You can read the entire op-ed here.

    I amazed that they event want to deport .001 percent under this administration. Well out of 12-25 illegal aliens we have started addressing the issue by going after 121 illegal aliens. They are still in the country I suspect so you can’t count these chickens yet. Yesterday I read that New York was going to the aid of these criminals.

    This was another excellent article from Mr. Mehlman!

      • The Trump Stop ISIS Terrorism at the Border Push

        Has completely contradicted the Dem/Rep open border lax security PC Rule book., Yet cornered, they know they have to look like they’re doing something about it. So the phony open border actors put on their fake costumes and pretend they’re Trump….LOL

        Afterward they’re elected they become the evil amnesty witch again.

        Did you know William that the original group “ISIS” was actually an old Medieval pagan religious cult from old Greece. The West’s Christianity is still fighting that name [same pagan organization?] today.
