Uncle Remus Meets the Kabuki Theatre
How "Executive Action" is a ploy to avoid border security
Glenn Spencer -- American Patrol Report -- November 18, 2014   
    Over the decades liberals have fought against any attempt to secure the border. Recently the idea of a "trigger" has surfaced - meaning that a legalization process would be "triggered" once border security has been established.
     There is a real chance that Obama is threatening his "Executive Action" to negotiate the terms of the "trigger". The idea might be to get the Republicans to agree to move ahead with a legalization process, based on passage of a "trigger" called the Secure Border Results Act, now pending in the House - thus avoiding a constitutional crisis.
    The Secure Border Results Act is co-authored by Rep. McCaul (R-Tx) and Rep. Candice Miller (R-Mi). It is a sham.
    McCaul is Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and Miller is Chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security. What better credentials? The problem is their legislation is not credible. It contains language that requires that the DHS Secretary submit a plan to achieve operational control of the border.
    But Chairman Miller held hearings where it was established that DHS rejects the idea of operational control of the border.
    Obama is thinking that people will be so overjoyed that a constitutional crisis has been avoided that they will fail to examine the deal the Republicans agreed to.
    It appears that Uncle Remus is about to be conjoined with Kabuki Theatre.
