Big Brother Says Pick a Bridge and Jump

We live in a time in which the federal government has nothing but disdain for the will of the American people. I think a handful of specific examples illustrate this problem:


This has proven a serious matter for twenty-five years, but it became acute under George W. Bush. Never before had I seen a president who was so congenial to immigrants in general, and illegal aliens in particular. He proposed de facto mass amnesty, and lied to the public about his intentions by redefining words and concepts. One could pen a whole volume on his deceit and dereliction of duty in this area.

Under Obama, this dire situation has become worse, as implausible as that may seem. The National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council cast a unanimous vote of "No Confidence" in the director and assistant director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The Council acted on behalf of 7,000 ICE officers and employees, on June 25.

Like Bush, Obama seeks amnesty for criminal invaders. ICE, which operates under Obama Administration appointees, deports aliens without further punishment for crimes that land citizens in prison, foregoes the enforcement of laws on the books, mismanages resources without accountability, treats criminals like foreign dignitaries, and retaliates against internal whistleblowers.

Worst of all, the Obama Administration has taken an active role in persecuting the people of Arizona for their efforts toward enacting the federal laws that Obama and his partners in high crimes and misdemeanors refuse to enforce. It's akin to the police arresting a man for thrashing his wife's attempted rapist.

Poll after poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans want legal immigration more limited in scope, and illegal "immigration" nipped in the bud.

However, the Republicans and Democrats have chosen a bipartisan response to those concerns, manifest in standing hand-in-hand and giving Americans the proverbial finger.

The immigration issue is perhaps the most clear-cut example of our federal government taking a stand in diametric opposition to the people's will.
