Governor Palin’s latest Facebook note once again rips our Liar-in-Chief:
Obama Knew of Border “Crisis” Prior to Reelection; Lied About That, Too!
The Washington Post has a bombshell article out about how “top officials at the White House and the State Department had repeatedly been warned of the potential for…
Here’s the article Governor Palin references: [emphasis mine]
Nearly a year before President Obama declared a humanitarian crisis on the border, a team of experts arrived at the Fort Brown patrol station in Brownsville, Tex., and discovered a makeshift transportation depot for a deluge of foreign children.
Thirty Border Patrol agents were assigned in August 2013 to drive the children to off-site showers, wash their clothes and make them sandwiches. As soon as those children were placed in temporary shelters, more arrived. An average of 66 were apprehended each day on the border and more than 24,000 cycled through Texas patrol stations in 2013. In a 41-page report to the Department of Homeland Security, the team from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) raised alarms about the federal government’s capacity to manage a situation that was expected to grow worse.
The researchers’ observations were among the warning signs conveyed to the Obama administration over the past two years as a surge of Central American minors has crossed into south Texas illegally. More than 57,000 have entered the United States this year, swamping federal resources and catching the government unprepared.
The administration did too little to heed those warnings, according to interviews with former government officials, outside experts and immigrant advocates, leading to an inadequate response that contributed to this summer’s escalating crisis.
Federal officials viewed the situation as a “local problem,” said Victor Manjarrez Jr., a former Border Patrol station chief who led the UTEP study. The research, conducted last year, was funded by the Department of Homeland Security and published in March. A broader crisis was “not on anyone’s radar,” Manjarrez added, even though “it was pretty clear this number of kids was going to be the new baseline.”
Cecilia Muñoz, Obama’s domestic policy adviser, said the administration and key agencies had made adjustments over time to deal with the influx of children but then responded with urgency once federal officials realized in May that the numbers would far exceed internal projections of 60,000 minors crossing the border in 2014.
Revised Border Patrol estimates now suggest the number could reach 90,000 by the end of September.

This is outrageous, but not totally surprising. As I wrote in June, while making the case against Speaker Boehner’s idiotic lawsuit, as well as the case FOR impeachment: In January, the Obama regime was advertising for “Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children.“:
Classification Code: V- Transportation/Travel/Relocation
NAICS code: 561612

Secondary POC: Tony Ross, Contracting Officer/ Tony.Ross@ice.dhs.gov
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a component of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has a continuing and mission critical responsibility for accepting custody of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) from U.S. Border Patrol and other Federal agencies and transporting these juveniles to Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) shelters located throughout the continental United States.
Tying all of this incontrovertible evidence together makes the case for impeachment, well unimpeachable! Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution demands the President secure the border and protect against foreign invasion. We know that not only did Obama fail to secure the border, but actively promoted the invasion of America by foreign nationals. That’s treason, dear readers.
It’s time to contact your representatives in Washington, and demand action. It’s time to demand this lawless president be removed from office before any more damage to society is done.
