The only politician who lies and flip flops anymore than Mitt Romney is Barack Obama. Now, in a blatant election year ploy, the Border Patrol claims it is going to crack down on illegals crossing the border.
From Fox News:
The U.S. Border Patrol is moving to halt a revolving-door policy of sending migrants back to Mexico without any punishment.
The agency this month is overhauling its approach on migrants caught illegally crossing the 1,954-mile border that the United States shares with Mexico. Years of enormous growth at the federal agency in terms of staff and technology have helped drive down apprehensions of migrants to 40-year lows.
The Border Patrol now feels it has enough of a handle to begin imposing more serious consequences on almost everyone it catches, from areas including Texas' Rio Grande Valley to San Diego. The "Consequence Delivery System" -- a key part of the Border Patrol's new national strategy to be announced within weeks -- relies largely on tools that have been rolled out over the last decade on parts of the border and expanded. It divides border crossers into seven categories, ranging from first-time offenders to people with criminal records.
Punishments vary by region but there is a common thread: Simply turning people around after taking their fingerprints is the choice of last resort. Some, including children and the medically ill, will still get a free pass by being turned around at the nearest border crossing, but they will be few and far between.
Does anyone really believe the Obama regime?
They are suing every state that tries anything to stop illegal immigration. When Arizona Governor Jane Brewer complained that dangerous drug smugglers had take over parts of Arizona, instead of sending resources to help drive the illegals out or apprehend them, the Obama regime simply sent signs warning Americans that certain areas were dangerous.
The Obama regime has been pushing Amnesty any way it can. Now they really expect us to believe this?
They really do believe we are stupid.
I have no problem about Romney's religious beliefs. The Mormans I have met were good people. What I have a problem with is Romney's liberal background. I have not met many liberals I like, and the more I see of Obama, the less I like them..
You have to give the devil his dues. This "crack down" on the border flys directly in the face of his Homeland Security policy on illegal immigrants. Obama is once again relying on his skills to delude the American public. He will, over the next few months say and do anything to convenience the public his policies on job creation, immigration, and big spending are in line with the public interest.
First he comes out asking congress to endow him with the power to create jobs.
Second he suddenly is concerned with illegal immigration.
Watch the worm turn over the next few months. Publically he will announce other plans to "fix" the problems he caused. Beware Greeks bearing gifts.
THE ONLY REASON THERE ARE FEWER APPREHENSIONS, IS BECAUSE THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ISN'T APPRENHENDING THEM, NOT BECAUSE OF GREATER EFFORT BS. THEY ARE GIVING THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS A PASS! CONSEQUENCE: FEWER APPREHENSIONS! ! !
