From the Constitution of the United States, Article IV, Section 4:
“The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against invasion...”
Far from protecting the States from invasions, they are facilitating that activity.
The Associated Press reports that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released from its jails more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation in February and planned to release 3,000 more in March. The states where immigrants were released include Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas.
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano justified the decision, saying, "We're doing our very best to minimize the impacts of sequester, but there's only so much I can do. You know, I'm supposed to have 34,000 detention beds for immigration. How do I pay for those?"
Well, I don’t know, Ms. Napolitano, what are you getting paid a six-figure salary for? Is there nothing in an agency that employs over 200,000, plus more than 150,000 contractors, (not including Coast Guard) that can be reduced?
DHS is in the process of building a new Washington DC complex costing $3.4 Billion, which will house some 14,000 bureaucrats.
In addition, the Transportation Security Administration just completed a $50-million deal to purchase new uniforms for its agents--uniforms that will be partly manufactured in Mexico.
The contempt this government has for it’s legal citizens is incredible--
How can you trust your government when it fails to perform the most basic functions? Sadly, this lack of consideration will become more pronounced when the intrusive and coercive ObamaCare is fully implemented.
