As the orchestrated chaos at America’s southern border remains unrelenting and continues to worsen, Obama is doing what he does best: ignoring another crisis in favor of fundraising. And despite that fundraising taking place in Texas, the state hardest hit by the onslaught of illegal alien children, Obama has no intention of visiting the border.

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), whose congressional district sits on the U.S.-Mexican border, told CNN’s Candy Crowley on State of the Union “With all due respect to the administration, they should have seen this coming a long time ago.” Actually they did, as witnessed by the January 29th government advertisement on the FedBizOps web site for companies with the capability to ship 65,000 illegal alien children around the country.

Contained in the same ad was a far greater indicator of the Obama administration’s ultimate intentions once that crisis developed. Whoever provided the escort services was also expected to transport “these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States.” That would be the ORR whose mission is to “provide people in need with critical resources to assist them in becoming integrated members of American society.”

In other the words, the administration was not only anticipating a crisis before one developed, it had seemingly decided that the massive influx of illegals would be categorized as “refugees.” Yesterday the United Nations got into the act, urging the administration to embrace that definition as a means of making tens of thousands of illegals eligible for asylum, rather than sending them home.

Obama’s standard strategy of telling the public one thing, and doing exactly the opposite behind the scenes, is in full swing. In the foreground we will continue to see Obama and his fellow travelers say they are opposed to the influx and committed to stopping it. However, in the background they are giving specific instructions to the federal agencies to continue promoting the process and affirming the intent.

Now Obama is seeking a whopping $3.7 billion for housing, immigration judges, detention facilities, and legal aid, associated with latest influx of illegals. This spending is directed at maintaining a status quo that does nothing to address the ongoing assault on our borders.

Meanwhile we the people are stuck with the problem.
Illegal immigrant children afflicted with tuberculosis, scabies, chickenpox and lice remain at Lackland Air Force base in Oklahoma, illegal alien criminals are being released in Virginia and Arizona, the ongoing protests in Murrieta, CA and Vassar, MI threaten to escalate.

The Commander in Chief of the most powerful military the world has ever seen has a new mission for the brave young men and women who signed up to fight for our great nation: caring for tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children and putting their lives on the line to protect Muslims. Haven’t they sacrificed enough already? Rather than asking more from those who have already given so much, why doesn’t Obama open up refugee camps in the Upper East Side of New York or in Beverly Hills California. Or better yet, why not dump them on the White House lawn and see how he likes it?

And amidst it all, the restrictions the Obama administration is attempting to impose on members of Congress and the media are astounding. The HHS is telling members of Congress visiting the immigration detention center at Lackland AFB that they cannot take pictures, use recording devices, or interact with staff or children. This is the statement of a dictatorship.

And while we are taking care of all these flotsam and jetsam from abroad, a new HHS report shows that a record number of 23.1% of Americans are currently receiving benefits from major welfare programs.
