West: Saving the border when the calvary isn't coming

About those 300 U.S. military advisers that the Obama administration has ordered to Iraq.

They belong on the United States border with Mexico. They are urgently needed to assess what U.S. military force should be deployed immediately to secure our own border, not Iraq’s border, from what is surely the most unconventional and, I believe, the most dangerous war in our history. As tens of thousands of so-called unaccompanied alien children (UAC) crash our southern border, we are undergoing a war against the existence, the concept of the USA as a nation-state.

After all, a nation-state doesn’t exist unless it controls its borders and protects its citizens.

We, the People, do neither. But the existential danger here comes not from the assault itself. Nightmarishly, it comes from the Obama administration, which, in its greatest betrayal, is leading, or at least supporting, the aliens’ charge.

That’s why the cavalry isn’t coming.

A normal government – one with the best interests of its own citizens at heart – would have taken immediate steps to 1) halt these border crossings that pose a dire threat to public health and safety, and 2) set in motion the deportation efforts necessary to return these illegal aliens to their home countries.

But the Obama administration is not a normal government. It saw these veritable columns of minor aliens forming, and, rather than stop them from entering the country, actually sought to help them, borrowing a phrase from Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., wipe their feet on our “welfare welcome mat” and stay.

How do I know this? Every American should examine the Department of Homeland Security solicitation notice that appeared six months ago at the federal business opportunities site FedBizOpps.gov. The notice seeks “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children,” describing exactly the services now required to process, not deport, this massive influx.

According to this notice posted back on Jan. 29, DHS was already gearing up to receive “approximately 65,000 UAC in total.”

According to the UAC services webpage of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the mission is to assist these minor illegal aliens “in becoming integrated members of our global society.” Not our “American” society. Big difference.

As Ann Corcoran, purveyor of the must-read website, Refugee Resettlement Watch, has taught me, population replacement is big business, and the zealous bureaucrats who seek to “fundamentally transform” this country make a good, taxpayer-funded living while they’re at it.

So, while your border is in tatters and perhaps your town under siege, know that you are paying for it. You’re paying for that new illegal minor alien facility now opening in Tucson – the 17th such facility operated by a group called Southwest Key, with an annual budget of more than $150 million, according to NBC affiliate KVOA, “most of which comes from federal government contracts.” (Bonus: the chairman of Southwest Key’s board of directors, Victor Garza, is an official of La Raza, which hopes to reclaim the Southwest for Mexico.)

No, it’s a big Washington con. Don’t fall for it. Hold the line. United, maybe we don’t need the cavalry.
