Houston Woman Understands Cost to American Poor from Illegal Immigrants

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 11, 2014

To Progressives, the crisis of thousands of illegal immigrants flooding America’s borders is an opportunity. They use this human tragedy to increase the power, scope and spending of the federal government. And yes, at the same time they increase the amount of people employed by and the any amount of compensation some federal employees are paid. It is a despicable use of human tragedy for the same basic greed often blamed on Wall Street and private businesses.

When liberals raise the issue of illegal immigrants, it is typically couched in terms of the humanitarian problems of the immigrants. These immigrants often come from deplorable conditions and corrupt and dysfunctional countries. That does not relieve the federal government of its obligation to have secure borders.

President Obama has responded to the immigration crisis asking Congress for an emergency $4 billion to spend on the issue. Any expenditure comes from a finite pool of funds that are therefore no longer available for Americans and legal immigrants in need. While the President and his Leftist allies seem ignorant to this economic reality, one Houston resident, Ms. Bernadette Lancelin, clearly understands this basic law of economics. Her rant in the video below demonstrates the potential political costs to the President and his party for the immigration mess and the Obama’s lame response.
