On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accused President Barack Obama of knowingly turning America into an “unfunded charity” for illegal immigrants to invade and overrun.
Referring to Obama as “the DREAMweaver,” Palin said when Congress declined to pass amnesty legislation, Obama “waved his magic wand” and enacted his own.
“And that created the current crisis as illegals are pouring in to collect what he illegally promised them,” Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado. “If Obama won’t obey the law and secure the borders, it’s not immigration; it’s invasion.”
Nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children have flooded across the border since October of last year, and the number of illegal immigrant children unlawfully entering the country drastically spiked since Obama unilaterally enacted his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012 while the murder rate in Central American nations declined during the same period. There have been nearly 60,000 illegal immigrants who have entered the country since October of last year. Federal officials expect at least 150,000 more in the next fiscal year, and Palin said “America the unfunded charity” will be “overrun” with illegals.
Municipalities from Virginia to California have expressed serious concerns about how they can afford to pay to take care of illegal immigrant children that the Obama administration — often without advance notice — is dumping in their communities.
Palin also warned that gangsters and terrorists “will be mixed in there” with illegal immigrants coming across the border and it was “insane” to expect municipalities across the country that are already “stretched to the max” to take care of all of the illegal immigrant children. Breitbart Texas has been reporting that some of the world’s most dangerous gangs are using detention centers to recruit new members. And this week, Breitbart Texas reported that an illegal immigrant who came to the country with children and was released from a detention center in June with a “notice to appear” was arrested for murder.
To make matters worse, Palin said that the “forgotten man” who cannot catch a break will now see their tax dollars go to help take care of illegal immigrants while they are forced to compete with them for shrinking resources and jobs.
She asked Democrats whether they support the Obama Doctrine, which she said was: “Break the law, get a reward.” Palin said Obama’s “incentives are invitations” and the illegal immigration crisis will “get worse” if the Obama administration does not take border security more seriously.
Though the Obama administration has gone on a public relations blitz to convince migrants from Central America not to make the journey to America, illegal immigrants have told Border Patrol agents that the Obama administration’s actions and words led them to believe that they will not be deported if they got across the border.
