The Washington Times is reporting that Janet Napolitano is threatening to let in more illegal aliens in the event that the sequester takes effect, you know, the same illegal aliens who last week we were supposed to make room for and coddle, but this week are are threat to our national security;
“There’s always a threat,” she said at the White House. “We’re going to do everything we can to minimize that risk. But the sequester makes it awfully, awfully tough.”
And she said there’s an increased risk of illegal immigrants crossing the borders.
“Yes it does affect our ability to keep out illegal migrants,” she said.
It’s odd that when a Republican says that illegals are a threat, he’s a racist, but when the Obama Administration says it, we’re supposed to scared into some kind of action.
While we’re on the subject of sequestration, that right wing hack, Bob Woodward from that far-right rag, the Washington Post claims that Obama has been “inconsistent” on the facts of how the sequester came about. The President has said that it was purely a Republican Congress thing, but Woodward tells a different story;
The finger-pointing began during the third presidential debate last fall, on Oct. 22, when President Obama blamed Congress. “The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed,” Obama said. “It is something that Congress has proposed.”
My extensive reporting for my book “The Price of Politics” shows that the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of [White House chief of staff, Jack] Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors — probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government.
Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). They did so at 2:30 p.m. July 27, 2011, according to interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved.
So, I guess when the recently-classified-as-dangerous illegal aliens flood across our borders because the sequester has cut the number of patrol officers, we can roundly blame the Obama Administration.
