Don’t blame government agents for their failure to defend the country from invasion. They have to follow orders, even when these orders come from a quisling who does not mean the country well — which can’t be much fun:
Morale among officers at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, already low, has reached a new bottom as illegal immigrants expecting amnesty from President Obama taunt and ridicule the overworked officers, according to a new report.
“Yes,” said one, “working for this agency is hell right now.”
Both the agents and the invaders know whose side Obama is on.
But don’t worry about the morale of agents who are paid not to do their duty. Obama will fix it by throwing our money at them. Part of his executive order amnesty plan is to give them a pay raise.
Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, doubts it will work:
“Clearly the administration is trying to triangulate at best, or more likely thinks that it can just dangle the prospects of a pay raise if they would stop objecting to administration non-enforcement policies,” said Vaughan. “I sincerely doubt anyone will fall for it, but it does reveal what he thinks of them,” she added.
That he would even consider inflicting amnesty by decree after ushering countless Third World welfare colonists into our country reveals what he thinks of all of us.
Taking orders from the enemy is bad for morale.
This could be a huge win for supporters of the 2nd Amendment.
Kentucky State Rep. Diane St. Onge recently filed House Bill 13 (HB13) with language that instructs the Kentucky House, “to take all appropriate action to safeguard Kentuckian’s rights to possess firearms in accordance with the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States and Section 1 of the Constitution of Kentucky.” (H/T ShallNot)
A bill of this magnitude that utilizes the anti-commandeering doctrine, which can be described as a legal doctrine formulated under several Supreme Court cases to refuse to help the feds enforce federal law, could be the much needed spark that starts the fire needed for more state houses to file and introduce similar legislation to protect American’s right to bear arms, and to allow states to make the rules without federal intervention.
St. Onge’s bill will nullify federal gun laws on the books for the state of Kentucky, which is shown in the bill language below:
Family Security Matters
A showdown worthy of High Noon may erupt over immigration if Obama, as anticipated, decrees amnesty for millions of illegal aliens via executive order. Republicans would decry the sheer lawlessness of Obama’s brazen unilateralism in a nation of equal and divided powers, not least Congress’s explicit constitutional mandate to write laws and Obama’s utter absence of authority to do so. Conservatives, and many moderates, fret about the fiscal and sociocultural impact of a wide-open southern boundary practically decorated with a 1,989-mile-long “Welcome!” sign. Thus the oft-heard demand for border security as Step One in immigration reform.
Concerns about health, education, and welfare notwithstanding, there are serious national-security reasons for immediately clamping down on the U.S.-Mexican “border.” It has devolved into a people-mover for illegal immigrants from certified terrorist states and other nations filled with zealots eager to kill Americans.
According to recently released data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 5,063 individuals from nations that harbor terrorists were arrested last year trying to cross into America from Mexico. None of these were Mexicans, Guatemalans, or Hondurans; they were citizens from far-away nations consumed by militant Islam.
