Looks like President Obama snuck 760 illegal immigrants into the State of Tennessee. Gov. Bill Haslam and local elected officials are now wondering: ‘what are we supposed to do with them?’
On Friday, these children landed in the Volunteer State. The governor, however, is claiming no one in his office was even told they were coming and that he learned only after seeing a notice on the Health and Human Services website. This came even after Gov. Haslam had asked the White House to alert him prior to sending to his state any of the estimated 90,000 illegal children who have recently flooded the country. With more than 120,000 already estimated to be living in Tennessee, taxpayers in Tennessee already pay an estimated $547 million a year to provide public benefits and services to illegal aliens residing in the state.
According to data recently released by the Migration Policy Institute, between 2000 and 2012, the five states with the largest percent growth of the immigrant population were South Carolina (91%), Alabama (87%), Tennessee (83%), Arkansas (75%), and Wyoming (74%). Reports of 1,100 illegals being dropped off in the same manner without any warning in Georgia, as well as 350 in South Carolina, are starting to surface with others soon to follow.
In a way, the American people should be flattered that the president treats everyone equally and doesn’t communicate with anyone what is going on. For a president who is constantly complaining that he is learning about events by watching the news, however, don’t you think he would have enough courtesy to not do the same to other executives in office? Not to mention, it is highly irresponsible to just drop 700 plus children off without giving any warning to prepare, especially considering most schools in Tennessee start classes within the next two weeks.
Communication and preparation are the last two elements this administration has been known for since the very beginning. Unless, you are a high dollar donor who gave to one of the 75 fundraiser’s Obama has attended. Or, perhaps, have a mean golf swing and can join Obama on his next outing (he has already completed 81 rounds of golf since reelection).
