According to the president of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services employee’s union, Obama’s questionable immigration policies are making the country less safe. Kenneth Palinkas warned that by “not scrutinizing each and every applicant to the fullest extent possible to ensure America’s security, we invite an even more catastrophic event than what occurred on 09/11/2001.”

According to Palinkas, Obama and his administration are “lessening the vetting of each and every alien who applies for permanent residency or citizenship in the U.S.”

In the quest to move closer and closer to the open-borders utopia the left dreams about, this president is weakening our national security one immigrant at a time. Officials have already admitted that they do not have the resources necessary to screen Syrian refugees coming into this country by the planeful. Palinkas says that by reducing security checks, we expose ourselves to members of ISIS and Al Qaeda who can obtain easy visas from the administration.

This warning comes on the heels of a leaked report from the Texas Department of Public Safety. According to them, border police have arrested several known Islamic terrorists in the last few years. Among the terrorists trying to cross have been members of Al-Shabab and Al-Itihaad al-Islamiya, a group once funded by none other than Osama bin Laden.

Ideology Before Security

The inscription on the Statue of Liberty may welcome the poor and tired, but it certainly doesn’t welcome suicide bombers. We are still very much living in the shadow of 9/11, even if Democrats choose to believe the threat of terrorism is behind us. Begging history to repeat itself, we make national security choices based not on what’s right for the country but rather what sounds politically correct. The desire to appear as though we have conquered racism and xenophobia is going to lead to our ultimate destruction.

A country cannot defend itself when the goal is to appease every minority group in the world. If President Obama had his way, he would erase our borders altogether. Invite Mexicans and Syrians and maybe even a couple of ISIS members to join Congress. He wants nothing more than to put an end to American exceptionalism. He wishes to go down in history as a champion for Western socialism rather than as a truly great American president. Well, don’t worry, Mr. President. You’re going to get your wish.

Unfortunately, we will be left to pick up the pieces of what you leave behind. Whoever takes the White House next – even if it is another Democrat – must turn back the clock on Obama’s weak national security policy. Even someone as bad for this country as Hillary Clinton would take a harder approach to immigration than Obama. One would hope.

In a fog of anti-Bush madness, we elected a man who has no business being president of a grocery store chain, much less the president of the United States. Obama’s fanbase has yet to realize the folly of their actions, but it’s only a matter of time before they do. One can only pray they wake up before this administration leads us to a catastrophe from which we cannot recover.
