Obama’s Nation-Wide Sanctuary City

Sanctuary city policies have shielded thousands from deportation, but the real damage is done at the federal level. Policies instituted by the Barack Obama Administration have effectively given sanctuary to millions, thanks to Obama’s wholesale refusal to enforce immigration laws. Consider Obama’s executive amnesty last November, which would have given legal status, work permits, and Social Security numbers to approximately 5 million illegal aliens. A brave federal judge blocked the work permits, but the 5 million still benefit from Obama’s decision to give them a low enforcement priority, which is just another form of sanctuary.

Obama recently extended lower-priority enforcement to several million more people, and approximately 87 percent of the illegal population are basically home free, which sends the message that the United States is now a sanctuary for the whole world. About 2.5 million people have entered illegally or become illegal since Obama took office in 2009, and that number does not even include legal immigration of over 1 million per year. The Census Bureau estimates that “net migration” will bring 14 million new immigrants to the United States during the next ten years. Of all Obama’s sanctuary policies, probably the worst is his vast expansion of refugee and asylum policies. Tens of thousands of so-called refugees, mostly from Muslim countries, are being resettled all over the United States, largely unreported by national media,.

The United States receives more refugees than all other countries combined and thrusts them into what are called “seed communities” where local opposition is not tolerated. There is even a special federal program to combat what it calls “pockets of resistance” such as the recent uproar in Twin Falls, Idaho where the U.S. government wants to send 300 refugees from war-torn Syria. The July 16 murders of four U.S. Marines and a U.S. Navy sailor in Chattanooga by a Kuwaiti-born Palestinian is a good example of the dangers of allowing Muslims to enter our country legally as refugees. As long as these people are given sanctuary, there is no sanctuary for Americans from the problems that these immigrants bring.
