The lengths that Team Obama will go to play politics never ceases to amaze me.
Current revelations indicate that the Obama administration is willing to put America's national security at risk in an effort to blunt political blowback from the illegal immigration crisis.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry told the nation that he warned Resident Barack Obama of the looming illegal immigration crisis back in 2010. We also know that earlier this year, Team Obama knew of the growing threat, but chose to concentrate on accommodating illegals rather than stopping their entry.

Now, the most transparent administration is history is dumping illegals into states without notifying governors and local officials of both political parties.
Despite claims that the border is secure by high-ranking Democrats, Americans are seeing the results of reality, the border is far from secure.
In Texas, an illegal immigrant, who came in with a batch of illegal kids, is under arrest for murder and kidnapping.
Also in Texas, a four-time deportee came back into the U.S. with the latest influx of illegals and then proceeded to sexually assault a 9-year-old girl while she slept in her bed.
And we now have word that ruthless gangs are using U.S. detention centers as recruiting stations. This is a Democrat's grasp of a secure border?
To add insult to injury, Resident Obama and his team have undertaken an effort to hide the true impact of the crisis from the American people.

Ruben Navarrette Jr., the nation's most widely read Latino columnist, appeared on The Chris Salcedo Show and revealed the lengths Team Obama will go to in an effort to guard against political consequences of their actions.
Those of us in the media and press are well aware of the information clamp down from the Obama administration that forbids agencies from talking to us. But in a return to a pre-9/11 mindset, Navarrette revealed that Resident Obama has erected a barrier between the Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies.
Obama is so worried about politics, he has reportedly forbidden the Border Patrol from sharing information and the real impact of the wave of illegals with others in law enforcement.
It's one thing to play politics at almost every level of the federal government. It's quite another to reinstitute a policy, that nearly every credible analysts agrees, led to the worst attack on American soil in our history.
A society's worth isn't measured by how much power is seized by its government but rather, how much power is reserved for its people.
