Krauthammer: Obama’s Message Received in Central America

Charles Krauthammer got right to the heart of the immigration crisis on our Southwest border in a Washington Post column Thursday:

Why do they come? The administration pretends it’s because of violence and poverty.

Nonsense. When has there not been violence and poverty in Central America? Yet this wave of children has doubled in size in the past two years and is projected to double again by October. The new variable is Obama’s unilateral (and lawless) June 2012 order essentially legalizing hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came here as children.

Message received in Central America.

He also debunks the other major leftist talking point:

Alternatively, Obama blames the crisis on Republicans for failing to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

More nonsense. It’s a total non sequitur. Comprehensive reform would not have prevented the current influx. Indeed, any reform that amnesties 11 million illegal immigrants simply reinforces the message that if you come here illegally, eventually you will be allowed to stay.

  1. As angry as I am at obama and his administration, I’m equally angry that congress, other than a very few TEA Party people, is sitting around twiddling their thumbs! Where are Mo leaders, Roy Blunt, Ann Wagner, and the other Missouri representatives on this? Why aren’t we as citizens, taking to the streets with our message of No More Amnesty for Illegals?

  2. For many administrations the border problem was small enough to ignore. Would any other country allow such ‘transparency’ at their borders. No! Just look how long a soldier has been held by Mexico and our administration is letting it play out??? Stop giving money to Mexico until his release.
