On Friday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama and legislators in D.C.’s permanent political class for exploiting illegal immigrant children to advance their amnesty agenda.
Palin said Obama, in particular, “has orchestrated this newest ‘crisis’ in order to overload the system with the intention of ‘fixing’ the problems his own policies create – by fiat, and that infamous phone and pen; screw the rule of law.”
In a Facebook post titled, “Dear Humanitarians, Since it Takes a Village to Stop Amnesty Abuse of Children, Join Me,” Palin said “this exploitation of foreigners’ children is an inhumane ploy to entice families to break laws by literally shoving kids across one of Obama’s infamous and irrelevant lines, with assurance that parents, aunties, step-uncles and third cousins twice removed will get to cut in line too.” Palin, showing respect for legal immigrants, emphasized that line was once a “sacred line that previously led law abiding, hardworking immigrants to build this great nation.”
“Barack Obama will keep phoning in and penning the message that he will NOT secure borders, so, hey, extended undocumented relatives, you’re free to join the kids being used and abused to snag that golden ticket,” she continued. “Obama surely knows a nation is not a nation without borders, while we must surely know this is the ‘fundamental transformation of America’ that he promised and some of us warned about.”
And as she has done throughout her political career, Palin called out both parties: “So, GOP and Democrats alike – where are you on this humanitarian issue of child abuse?”
She has said that Obama has already “warned you by proudly claiming his executive orders can bypass the peoples’ representatives and obviously ignore the will of the people.” And the GOP’s willingness to go along with Obama on the amnesty issue is compelling her to renounce her ties to the GOP:
We cannot ignore this, and to do so proves you are heartlessly oblivious to the plight of those who, though not willing and able to follow rules or our laws, are expecting a free pass and handout anyway. As a Christian I find it unforgivable to ignore this issue of overrunning border security into these conditions in southern states, and this one issue is just about driving me to renounce my Republican ties because, see, even leaders on the RIGHT side of the aisle haven’t exerted all Constitutional power to stop the madness. A few have tried, but until they’re sent reinforcements, then atrocities like the child abuse and exploitation you’re now getting wind of will only get worse.
It’s already hard to recognize our once exceptional nation amidst the neglect of this issue of children used as political pawns. Can you imagine this disregard for child safety happening even a short decade ago? The press would have had none of it, and they’d shine light on what the underlying problem is. They’d report that it’s not the innocent babes’ fault, would attempt to get to the bottom of it, and then finally they’d blame Bush. Today, that approach is ignored. They just blame Bush. There is a loud and aggressive invitation to illegals of all ages and from all countries to “kick off your shoes and come on in!” Now that’s Southern Hospitality! It’s sent by foreign leaders and our own. C’mon, with all the free stuff we can supply everyone, how can anyone turn this down? Government will have to grow enormously to accommodate this influx, and services and care will inevitably have to be rationed, but like we teach our children – we’re all better off being disciplined! And isn’t sharing our resources okay as long as we have trustworthy, compassionate career politicians in charge of the nation’s priorities? Remember, our Republic has been blessed because we committed to nurture a caring, compassionate, pro-child, law abiding citizenry. And because of those mores, it’s unconscionable to take any more of this chaos and crisis. I say, enough is enough. This issue of the children MUST be addressed.
Palin then described all of the burdens the federal government puts on working Americans to take care of illegal immigrants flooding across the border, and she said that was one of the huge magnets attracting illegal immigrants to reach America. She said Obama and the permanent political class know illegal immigrants will be more willing to come to the nation if they are led to believe they will be granted amnesty. And that inducement that compels parents to bring their kids along the treacherous and sometimes deadly journey to the United States, Palin said, amounted to child abuse:
Finally, they have won me over. I actually agree with the liberals’ war whoop. I, too, demand that this issue of young illegal aliens flooding across our border into horrendous conditions be taken care of. Now! Uncompassionate people, wake up! Though it’s claimed by Democrats ad nauseam to justify more spending to pile on our $17 trillion debt, and it’s applied to every single “crisis” their policies conjure up, and no matter the cause you’re labeled a racist if you disagree with their policies, well, this time it really IS for the children.
I say this as a mother – a bleeding-heart compassionate woman and mother. I say, how dare anyone turn a blind eye and further harden your horrid heart when you see these pictures snuck out of the innocent children’s holding pens – snuck out because our government is censoring images released. It must be my (former) friends in the GOP ordering this censorship because Democrat leadership knows better than to EVER spy on or censor the press; they’d NEVER infringe on the First Amendment. So, for shame, Republicans.
These thousands of hungry, innocent children rushing in through Mexico are just the tip of the Sedona Red Rocks (granted, some of these illegals are 18-year-old men whom you wouldn’t want to mess with, but, still, according to Obamacare we now dub young adults “children” until they’re 26, so…). Expect to see hundreds of thousands of another country’s children walk right through our welcoming open border, counting on America’s families to render all aid. We owe it to ourselves to be prepared – so, work even harder, working class, while our President uses his trustworthy discernment to redistribute your paycheck, because it IS for the children, after all. And it takes a village, don’t you know?
These victims are brought here (by SOMEONE in authority in their own countries) facing sweltering 110-degree Arizona heat, illness, unsanitary conditions with unbelievable hygiene issues, Texan food the kids don’t like because it’s too foreign to them, and possibly sexual exploitation. By any definition, this is child abuse!
Referencing the Department of Health and Human Services’ $350 million grant to provide “family planning services” illegal immigrant children, Palin said the “primary expenditure we need to supply in this humanitarian crisis is jet fuel to fly these children back home to their parents.”
Palin, who has previously said the amnesty issue will “decimate” Main Street, also thanked Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby for forcing the mainstream media and politicians to pay attention to the issue and urged voters to vote against elected officials who have enabled the Obama administration’s lawlessness.
