Nice: Obama Uses Illegal Children For Propaganda, Turns Soldiers Into Babysitters

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of Townhall.com.

Just when things seem like they can’t get any worse, Obama stoops to a new all time low. With the resounding defeat of Eric Cantor, liberal ‘Dreamers’ must look for new and creative ways to hoist their illegal, open-border policies upon law-abiding American citizens. Reminiscent of Hamas and Al Qaeda using children as human shields or bombs, it seems likely that Obama is using children as the new pressure point for cramming amnesty down our collective American throats.


Within the past week thousands of children from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala have suddenly appeared on U.S. soil, reportedly traversing several enormous countries in the hope of secretly slipping into America. Perhaps I’m just cynical but none of this smells right. As a matter of fact, it all stinks.

Just exactly how do unaccompanied children manage to traverse two thousand miles of difficult terrain while avoiding dangerous drug cartels – all on their own – to reach the southern border of America? Since they are apparently arriving without benefit of adult supervision, money, vehicles, or material possessions, one can only speculate that perhaps they had some seriously coordinated support.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration does a double wink and feigns surprise at the onslaught of urchins. And America – get your checkbooks ready – because Obama can’t work fast enough to secure $2 billion in emergency funding from our bankrupt treasury.

Goodness knows, the timing for this couldn’t be better because the Arab Spring is over, Russia is our best friend, and the world is secure (especially Iraq). Since Obama is gutting the military anyway, it seems a logical move to turn our ‘unnecessary’ military installations over to the Department of Health and Human Services. I mean, we’ve got to put these illegal kids somewhere – right? And while Obama and HHS are re-tasking our bases, it’s only fitting to re-task our – now irrelevant – American soldiers so they can act as chief cooks and bottle washers.


Sorry, but I don’t buy any of this.

I especially don’t buy that the massive influx of kids was random or uncoordinated. Since Obama never allows anything to stand in the way of his progressive agenda, it seems likely that these underage trespassers are nothing less than a sick new tool to access the sympathetic nerves of American voters who don’t want amnesty. I mean really, how can we turn our backs on pitiful, dirty, hungry children?

Easy. The same way we legally incarcerate any juvenile delinquent who breaks into private property and steals from the residents. Because that’s exactly what these kids are. They’re juvenile delinquents who’ve broken into the U.S. and who have no legal right to be here. Every one of them should be incarcerated (along with their parents) in a secure facility and immediately flown back to where they came from.

I apologize in advance if my take on this serious mess sounds cold and heartless. But personally, I’d much rather pay for the cost of a one-way ticket than to be stuck with a permanent bill for their housing, food, clothing, healthcare, education, abortions, sex-change operations, electronics, cell phones, automobiles, legal defense funds, federal prison time, etc.

And when our overworked Border Patrol was unprepared for the onslaught of thousands of kids – why, pray tell, is America suddenly the bad guy? While it’s unfortunate we didn’t have five-star accommodations ready for their unannounced illegal arrivals, it’s not America’s shortfall.


Nope, it’s just Obama reiterating for the thousandth time that America is a failure and the root of all the world’s problems.

Personally, I’m sick to death of the illegal alien situation and believe in no uncertain terms that we need to seal the borders immediately. Furthermore, I wouldn’t support or vote for a single candidate who believes otherwise because this terrible situation right now is just the tip of the iceberg and it’s only going to get worse.

Obama is perpetrating another huge travesty on America. While he falls all over himself to help illegal would-be voters flooding here, he won’t lift a finger to help our innocent U.S. citizens stuck in foreign prisons. From the two babies languishing with their abused mother in a federal prison in Sudan, to the U.S. Marine stuck in a Mexican jail, he refuses to even acknowledge their existence.

On another side, I imagine the newly minted $2 billion Obama is miraculously diverting to these illegals would’ve gone a long way to continue funding the A-10 so that our troops on the ground would have the ‘luxury’ of continued close air support. Quite probably those five brave troops who died in Afghanistan last week would still be alive if Obama’s hand picked USAF top brass hadn’t refused to provide critical funding.


I also imagine the money would make a small dent in the backlog of veterans awaiting medical care through the underfunded VA. Quite possibly many of the veterans who were denied medical care and subsequently died might still be alive if we only had our priorities straight.

Ah well, perhaps Obama will think more clearly after his golf game this weekend.
