    For starers, he is shutting down Operation Phalanx, which is the aerial surveillance program that intercepts drugs and illegal crossings along the Mexican border. http://watchdog.org/282195/border-surveillance-shut-down/

    Why would he do this? Other than just to be an *******, I've got nothing.

    Could it possibly be cost, effectiveness or duplication of programs? Nah, it must be because Obama hates America.

    Ha! Cost? You can't be serious, but I suppose you are. Spending has been reckless under Obama, and suddenly this is his way of cutting costs?

    Obama knows there is going to be a mad rush at the border because asylum seekers know the open door is about to shut. He doesn't want the border patrol to interfere. He wants as many illegals to get in as possible.

    Time for Gov. Abbott to order the Texas Army National Guard to bolster border security for the next several months until Trump can lend some help. :smile1:

    Even MSM is reporting the large numbers of illegals trying to get in now
    Bo will make sure these illegals disappear into the country

    Like most Texas Republicans, Abbott has the construction and homebuilding industries' nuts firmly and deeply entrenched in his mouth. He will do no such thing.

    I should have clarified. They may make symbolic political gestures to give the illusion that they care. They don't. If you want to know what Texas Republicans think of illegal immigration, consider two things.

    First, they've held some power since 1995 and have held absolute power since 2003. In that time, one piece of legislation dealing with illegal immigration has been enacted. It gave in-state tuition to illegal aliens.

    Second, you're hearing a lot about the federal government stopping sanctuary cities under Trump. Why didn't the Texas Legislature do something about them? Cities are political subdivisions of the state. The state can override them at any time. Why didn't they? Because Perry's and Abbott's puppet masters stopped them.

    I just learned this week there is a flow even into our airports ... coyotes putting small groups on jetliners in PHX and TUS ... they disappear into the crowds ... and country.

    hello ID check.

    Shark
    How do they get into the country even at Airport?
    Don't they have to have some Docs?
    Or is BO just allowing anyone in?

    If I knew the particulars, I could stop it ... at least up to 160 at a time.

    But it's evidently common knowledge at these stations. Seems like the permissive condition is rooted in the current administration's view on border security.

    I'm looking/asking ... but it's no doubt a delicate deal --- at least for the next 2 months. ;)

    ED: the illegals aren't FLYING into these airports. They're being led across the border and then dispersed into the country via border state airports, not necessarily border towns with airports.

    Wow they really have a scam going
    Once they fly into the country we never hear from them unless they have a baby we pay for and of course pay to support the mother
    Or they get some fake I'd and cheat us that way we are such Fools
    Thanks for explaining it

    On his way out, Obama says ~40% of the US is "pure evil"

    That's a lie. Trump was the first GOP candidate in a long time that did better when polling RV instead of LV.

    They're not flying into the country. They're being smuggled across the border ... hopping the fence or walking across ... etc ...
    But from THERE, on the AZ or TX border, they are being transported to these commercial airports.

    From there, you have the picture.

    When they are in the country, why would they go to an airport to "blend in"? Lots of cops there, I'd think they'd avoid the airports like the plague.

    Precisely.

    Of course, the larger issue is that they are able to cross the border in such numbers.

    Surge in Illegal Border Crossings Forces Officials to Open New Texas Housing Facility

    http://planetfreewill.com/2016/11/2...officials-to-open-new-texas-housing-facility/

    "U.S. Immigration officials are currently so overwhelmed with an ongoing surge of crossings at the southern border that they have been forced to open a new temporary facility in Texas to accommodate for all the illegal alien border crossers.

    Through November, border patrol has caught about 1,500 people crossing the southern border per day, a pace that is right in line with numbers from October.

    According to MRCTV, Customs and Border Protection is currently housing about 41,000 illegal aliens in detention centers that typically accommodate between 31,000 and 34,000 people...."

    Trump was selling off some of his old, dilapidated Butlers' quarters, and gave Obama first shot at purchasing them.

    Not sure about the other homes but the D.C. house being shown is rented. I expect that like most POTUS, Obama will be paid handsomely every time he speaks.

    Doesn't BO have a young daughter that still needs to finish school? Maybe he doesn't want her to have to move schools in the middle of HS, like most parents?

    I think SH is correct on the daughter still in school thing but I'd still like to hear where the money came from - even with the 'low rent' (jk) rental.
