It’s no secret that liberals are completely devoid of all American values. Hell they are people that want to invite every single person over here, regardless if they are legal or illegal. And yet they have the audacity to say that conservatives are the ones that are un-American.
One of the areas that the liberals are very adamant on is the fact that every single person should come live in the United States. They are all for open borders, which means that people can just come over whenever they feel like it. In other words, immigration would be a thing of the past.
And all liberals believe this, whether they vocalize it or not. President Obama is one of those liberals that have vocalized his desire to see an open border policy. And he took one step closer to seeing that dream become a reality. With less than two months to go in his presidency, the Obama Administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) shut down a border aerial surveillance program.
And this wasn’t just a usual border security measure either. This was one of the most critical aspects of border security that was out there. And the Obama Administration decided that it would be a good idea to shut it down.
DHS officials have shutdown the military aerial support program that was known as Operation Phalanx. It was created by President Obama back in 2010 to help out and provide the National Guard with resources used to monitor drug smuggling operations and illegal border crossings by immigrants and human smugglers.
And this is the most interesting portion of this story. The program was fully funded for the 2017 Fiscal Year. And yet the DHS had been scaling back the program since January. It was a move that prompted political officials in Texas to speak out against the defunding of the program. Among those that spoke out were Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Representative Henry Cuellar.
“Any decrease in aerial observation is not only imprudent, but contradicts the very mission of border security enforcement.” After they said that, they also decided to write a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson about the decision to scale back the border security.
“In order to ensure we are doing everything possible to effectively secure the border, we request immediate information on the metrics used to determine that a 50 percent reduction in aerial resources would be sufficient to support this important border security operation.”
If they were upset about the border security reduction, you can imagine that they were extremely agitated about the program being shut down. It led to Cuellar renewing his objections and calling on other prominent Texas politicians to voice their displeasure.
Governor Abbott took that to heart, tweeting out his emotions about the report. “Obama is doing everything he can to open the border. January 20th can’t come soon enough. National Guard remains.” Attached was a link to the Watchdog.org article that told of the border program being shut down.
It should be noted that the DHS has a history of lying to the public on how the actual situation across the Mexican border is going. They claim that illegal crossings have declined when in reality it has increased. This was especially prominent in the time leading up to Donald Trump’s presidential victory.
There were 13,124 apprehensions of Incomplete Family Unit Aliens (FMUA), but that number is higher because CBP officials define an FMUA as “children who are apprehended with one or more parent or legal guardian.” That means that that 13,124 number is actually 26,248.
And Operation Phalanx has been an effective tool at keeping the border crisis from being worse than it already is. It was reported that in one section alone, “Operation Phalanx accounted for 10,559 apprehensions and 4,007 ‘turnbacks’ from March 2012 to December 2015. Phalanx was credited with seizing 12,851 pounds of narcotics during the period.”
So why was it so good? According to a pilot with the Texas National Guard, who has been using the specially equipped helicopters, “This aircraft’s capabilities make it a unique asset in the Army aviation inventory and perfect for this mission. It has a communications package that none of the other Army aircraft have that allows us to communicate on secure Border Patrol and other law enforcement channels. This communication capability, along with a high-powered searchlight and cameras with infrared capabilities, make it the total package.”
In other words, this program is necessary to keep the border crisis from getting worse. And sensing that, Obama and his liberalness decided that he was going to shut down the program in order to keep his dream of open borders alive for a little bit longer.
But this was just part of President Obama’s plan to shut down the border patrol unit. He has been doing whatever he could to make sure that the Border Patrol struggles with their job. After all, there was a time where agents were literally begging Obama to send some backup because they were so heavily outnumbered. And did he send back up? The answer is NO of course!
Of course the other reason that Obama didn’t do anything to help out the border patrol was because he made an announcement that illegal immigrants could vote in the election and they wouldn’t face any sort of backlash. Despite the fact that voting is a right reserved for LEGAL Americans, Obama threw that out completely!
Share this article with everyone to show them that President Obama is going to do everything he can in the last two months to get as much of his agenda done as possible. He just shut down a critical border security measure that was instrumental in keeping the border crisis better than it is now.
Thankfully we only have two months left of Obama, but the fact remains that he is going to create a huge mess that Trump is going to have to clean up. But once Trump gets all of that done, we can start seeing a better America.
