President refuses to enforce immigration law to build political tool

The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers is accusing President Barack Obama of allowing massive numbers of illegal immigrants to cross the border into America, allegedly for political purposes.

An organization comprised of former Border Patrol agents is accusing President Obama of deliberately refusing to enforce immigration law in order to get thousands of illegal children into the U.S. for political purposes.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "This is not a humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor illegal alien children at risk for purely political purposes," said a statement from the organization.

Help spread the word of Christ's love all over the world.

"Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States government."

The statement continued: "Anyone that has taken two six-to seven-year-old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States."

Republicans are blaming the influx of illegal immigrants over the last couple of years on the Obama administration's immigration policies, which they claim entice illegals to come over-especially the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, launched in 2012, and renewed recently.

Even a federal judge came to the conclusion that the Obama administration "has simply chosen not to enforce . . . border security laws."

The report stated that more than 33,000 of these immigrant children have been apprehended in Texas alone over the past eight months, overwhelming the Border Patrol's capabilities.

"If the U.S. government fails to deliver adequate consequences to deter aliens from attempting to illegally enter the U.S., the result will be an even greater increase in the rate of recidivism and first-time illicit entries," said Ronald Vitiello, a deputy Border Patrol chief.

Among the most attracting incentives among the president's policies, officials say, is his instructions for "deferred action" for young illegals. The White House is asking for $1.4 billion more for illegal-alien children aid and has been hunting for lawyers to provide these children with legal help.
