Rand Paul Rips Obama As Immigration
Becomes Major 2016 Issue

Breitbart -- July 22, 2014   
    President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal aliens via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and other executive orders is a “magnet” for illegal immigration, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told Breitbart News on Tuesday.
    “All of that is a magnet and a beacon for people to come,” Paul said when asked about Obama’s executive immigration orders during a brief interview outside the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) headquarters. “You can’t have any kind of beacon without securing the border first. It really illustrates what conservatives have been saying all along, myself included: You can’t vote for immigration reform, you can’t have immigration reform without first securing the border.” [...]
    The border crisis is emerging as a major issue in the GOP, and most other potential 2016 GOP presidential hopefuls have come out swinging on the matter.......

ABP NOTE: Back in June, Paul said: "Under my plan, Congress will vote every year on border security. If Congress votes that the border is not secure, elements of immigration reform will cease to go forward and visa programs will be slowed. If Congress does not think the border is secure after five years, every element of immigration reform will be stopped." -- Does this sound like securing the border "first"? -- As far as DACA is concerned, we started reporting on the problem less than one month after its implementation. And, we continued to do so.

Border Patrol agents hold Iowa Boy Scouts at gunpoint for taking a picture of them
A Border Patrol agent allegedly held a member of an Iowa Boy Scout troop at gunpoint while another threatened another boy with arrest and a 10-year prison term for taking a picture of him, KCCI-TV reported. -- The incident reportedly took place while members of Mid-Iowa Boy Scout Troop 111 and volunteers traveling with them were attempting to drive through the border between Canada into Alaska. Troop leader Jim Fox told KCCI that the group was detained and searched after the scout took the picture. The agent allegedly told Fox that the scout had committed a federal offense.......

Amnesty Trumped Border Security
The Washington Post over the weekend published a damning piece on the administration's foreknowledge of the border chaos. Though there is no evidence that the White House actually wanted the crisis to happen, Andy McCarthy is correct that “President Obama has instigated this crisis” through “a systematic campaign to gut the immigration laws.” But it's clear from the Post account that they didn't appreciate how it would blow up in their faces.........

Obama's Border Narrative Unraveling
Before Republicans rush to formulate a response to the border crisis, they should first investigate the nature of the border crisis. The narrative percolating into the media from the Obama administration is that we are dealing with a sudden humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied child refugees. The implication of their narrative is that this is akin to a natural disaster that requires an immediate increase in spending to treat the crisis.

But after reading Kelly’s harrowing encounter below, Americans should be aware that dangerous elements also travel those routes to enter America..........

Evidence Mounts of a Manufactured Border Crisis  
The situation at America's southern border is a “manufactured crisis,” one perpetuated -- if not started --- by the Obama administration. After all, the administration put out an ad in January 2014 asking for contractors to handle an influx of 65,000 children. “The surge to 60,000 or so children seen this year was said to catch many off guard, especially since just 6,500 children entered the U.S. as early as 2011,” reported Pete Kasperowicz for The Blaze. “But [Republican Representative Jeff] Sessions [R-AL] said the advertisement showed that the administration knew the surge would happen.” And in reality, the 60,000 children represent only about 20 percent of the total illegal immigrants who have come into this country since April...........
