Anyone surprised? Illegals are no-shows at deportation hearings

The bottom line in the current issue of illegal immigration is the rule of law.

People seem to forget America is a sovereign constitutional Republic with a defined border and a set of laws mandating the protection of that border. We continue to be bombarded by progressive socialists and others with this faux compassion argument.

If we are to consciously make the choice that our bleeding hearts override the rule of law, then we should admit we no longer care to have a sovereign nation, and the rule of law is useless and should be discarded.

We have children here in America stuck in a foster home system looking for homes — the American dream. We have children here in America living under the specter of violence — such as the black girl who was shot by a stray bullet in Chicago while at a slumber party.

I find it laughable how some selective choose biblical verses and references to support a political agenda, such as Nancy Pelosi claiming that “baby Jesus was a refugee.” Or even Stephen King tweeting that Jesus said, “suffer the little children that they should come unto me.” I wonder how many of these illegal immigrant children these two will accept unto their homes?

But if we show no respect for our own rule of law — then why should anyone else? Let’s just erase Article IV section 4 in the Constitution all together – because clearly those entering illegally have no respect for our laws either.

As Breitbart.com reports, “Nine out of 10 illegal immigrant children who were scheduled to appear before a federal immigration judge in Texas did not show up on Tuesday. According to a report in the Dallas Morning News, there were 20 youths “from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala who were set to appear in federal immigration court Tuesday for initial deportation hearings,” but only two showed up. Instead of issuing immediate deportation orders, the judge reportedly reset the hearings for the absentees for August 11, a decision which was cheered by immigration activists.”

So I suppose this is why the Obama administration needs that $3.7 billion, to have more of these mock hearings where illegals don’t appear, only to have more hearings scheduled. Why was an immediate deportation not ordered? Why were there illegal immigration activists present who cheered?

We have a self-inflicted crisis here because we have a lawless administration that spits on the Constitution and law it took an oath to uphold. This manufactured crisis comes from our lack of discipline to uphold our own precepts. We are mandating our ICE and CBP agents to stand down and not conduct their assigned duties and responsibilities — in other words forcing them to not uphold their oath of office and service.

As Breitbart News reported, Juan Osuna, the Director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review at the Justice Department, testified at a Congressional Hearing that 46 percent of illegal immigrant juveniles do not show up to their hearings and “the total pending case load for the federal government is 375,000 illegal immigrant juveniles.”

So where are these almost half a million illegal immigrant juveniles — not children? How many of them are associated with the notorious El Salvadoran gang MS-13? Where will all these juveniles show up? There can be no doubt they’re being pushed off as a concern and threat for local law enforcement agencies — already hard-strapped by current inner city violence and gangs.

So why are we seeing this purposeful destabilization of America and undermining of its rule of law? Who is to gain from the complete decimation of our rule of law? Certainly not average hardworking American middle-income families who will be pushed further into the depths of economic tribulation as the welfare nanny-state expands. They will find their labor market wages undermined. They will find their children lacking strong education as more illegal immigrant children flood public schools. They will come to find America is no longer for Americans — and those who sought entry via legal means, respecting our rule of law.

Breitbart says “there have been nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children who have been apprehended since October of last year. Those from countries other than Mexico and Canada are given “notices to appear” and released, and many of these illegal immigrants have said they made the dangerous journey to America believing they would receive such “permisos” that allow them to remain indefinitely in the country.” In fact, rather than evade capture, they all voluntarily turn themselves in — and based on the actions in the Dallas court, they’re right.

A recent Pew Research report found that nearly 90 percent of the illegal immigrant “children” are actually teenagers. So this in’t about little children — but once again, We The People are not being provided the truth by the Obama administration.

The illegal immigration crisis in America should be about compassion for Americans and respect for our rule of law. But clearly that’s of no concern to the Fundraiser-in-Chief.
