Obama’s Cloward-Piven Immigration Strategy

Barb Wire

The American people have been inundated with stories the past few days of a tragic humanitarian crisis. At least 100,000 kids from Latin America have illegally flooded across the border. Of course, the Obama Regime is claiming this is a result of our lack of “immigration reform” (aka scamnesty). And they’re pretending to be surprised by the whole thing.

But they’re not surprised. Quite the opposite is true. This is all going as planned. 

The timing of this humanitarian crisis can be linked directly to the Obama Regime’s unilateral (see that as illegal) decision to continue its unilateral (see that as illegal) variation of the so-called “Dream Act” (aka amnesty for children). Last month, the Obama Regime decided to continue breaking the law, and one immigration official said in a memo “the result will be an even greater increase in the rate of recidivism and first-time illicit entries.”

This is the so-called “Cloward-Piven Strategy” at work folks. Named after the two Leftists who authored it, the strategy here is simple — flood the welfare state with needy people until it reaches its breaking point, and the people have no choice but to accept Marxism as a substitute. That’s exactly what you’re seeing the Obama Regime doing on the issue of illegal immigration. They’re not surprised or deflated by this. They’re elated, and they’re the ones conducting the cattle call. Shamelessly using children born into poverty as a means of collapsing the system. Ironically, if they’re successful they’ll collapse what’s unique about America that makes the rest of the world want to come here in the first place.

But the Republicans in Washington, D.C. won’t pounce on this issue and save these children or the American people from another manufactured Obama crisis. That’s because GOP leadership is in the back-pocket of corporatists, who want to use illegals for cheap labor. They’re actually hoping these sad and adorable faces guilt you into allowing corporatists to groom them for glorified indentured servitude one day.

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am. Stuck in the middle with you.
