If an executive order from the president couldn’t get the job done, then the Obama administration might have to resort to other means when it comes to making illegal aliens feel at home in America. Since there are no greater issues facing the country right now, the Obama-appointed Task Force on 21st Century Policing recommends severing ties between Homeland Security and local law enforcement authorities.
“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security should terminate the use of state and local criminal justice system…to enforce civil immigration laws against civil and nonserious criminal offenders,” says the task force report. Rather than move these illegals into the deportation process, “law enforcement agencies should build relationships based on trust with immigrant communities. This is central to overall public safety.”
Oh, certainly. Ask any expert in criminal justice and they’ll tell you that the best way to promote public safety is to stop enforcing the law. That’s just common sense!
“Immigrants often fear approaching police officer when they are victims of and witnesses to crimes when local police are entangled with federal immigration enforcement,” says the report. Gee, isn’t that true of any outlaw? Perhaps we should just legalize everything and cut this Gordian knot right down the middle. Imagine how much tax money we could save. Get rid of police, throw the borders wide open, and let the chips fall where they may. Instead of electing a president next year, we can just hand the White House over to whichever warlord is tough enough to take it. Hope and change, ladies and gentlemen. Hope and change.
Federal immigration authorities are already hesitant to take action against illegals for fear of incurring Obama’s wrath. Now the administration wants to take one final step and prevent local police from taking over where DHS left off. All this in a cynical attempt to shore up the Hispanic vote for the Democrats. If they have to wreck the country on the way to political dominance, then at least they’ll have freed America from the evil clutches of the white patriarchy.
Obama’s critics have been harsh and prone to exaggeration over the last six years, but even the worst of them may have underestimated the coming darkness. This president has flaunted our Constitution, handcuffed the free market, and put us on the road to ruin. He’s not just the worst president in history, he is a traitor that deserves to be remembered right alongside Benedict Arnold. If things keep going the way they are, unfortunately, he’ll be remembered as a hero.
Er, el héroe, that is.
