As word spreads across Mexico and into South America that the U.S. is welcoming illegals with open arms, an unchecked invasion across our southern border continues. With it, in addition to a drain on both financial and human resources, comes an increased threat of violence and disease.
At least 33 House Republicans are fighting back against the policy of de facto amnesty by adding their signature to a strongly worded letter recently sent to Barack Obama. The most immediate action they demand is the unceremonious end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program currently attracting thousands of minors from various countries to the U.S. border.
“As the country faces an unprecedented surge in the arrival of unaccompanied alien children (UACs) at our southwestern border, we call on you to immediately end the failed policies that encourage young individuals to put themselves in peril, leave their home countries, and make a long and dangerous journey to enter our country illegally.”
GOP lawmakers also hold Obama to task for his unilateral action regarding immigration, which has resulted in the international perception that illegals face little to no risk of deportation in blatantly violating America’s immigration laws.
“Your continued commitment to circumvent Congress and implement policies contrary to the intent of immigration law sends foreign nationals the false hope that administrative amnesty is possible.”
Of course, this is hardly the first time Republicans have confronted Obama on his imperialism. Only time will tell how — or if — he will respond.
