There’s yet more disturbing information emerging about what’s happening on our borders. Thanks to Judicial Watch, here’s the latest: “Following reports that soldiers were booted from their barracks at an Oklahoma Army base to make room for a wave of illegal immigrant minors, the Obama administration is refusing to give the federal lawmaker who represents the state in Congress access to the facility.” What does the administration want to hide?
Congressman Jim Bridenstine tried to visit Ft. Sill, but was denied access to the facility. Judicial Watch says “in a statement issued this week Congressman Bridenstine’s office says Ft. Sill is housing up to 1,200 Unaccompanied Alien Chidren (UACs), but the lawmaker couldn’t offer any more information because he wasn’t allowed inside. He says a fence covered with material that totally obscures any view has been erected around the barracks housing the UACs.
Ft. Sill is located in Lawton about 85 miles southwest of Oklahoma City and serves as the United States Army and Marine Corps’ Field Artillery School, housing nearly 9,000 soldiers. Ft. Sill was my first duty station as a brand new Artillery officer — as well as that of my “Redleg” nephew (not a racist term for you liberal progressives, by the way)
Last week Judicial Watch received reports that single enlisted soldiers were transferred from their barracks to tents in order to accommodate the flood of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) coming from Central America. If true, this is an affront to our men and women who are serving us and protecting our liberties.
Judicial Watch says a Ft. Sill spokesman told them no soldier has been displaced because illegal immigrants are being housed in quarters that have been empty for months, but he wouldn’t offer any further details on the arrangement, including the number of illegal aliens staying at the base.
So what is happening that the “most transparent administration in American history” would deny a federal Congressional Representative, and a former Naval aviator, from visiting a military installation in his home State?
Judicial Watch — the same government watchdog organization that procured by lawsuit the unredacted White House emails showing Ben Rhodes advocating the anti-Islam video as the story behind Benghazi — reported that a hangar at the Ft. Bliss in El Paso Texas is quietly being used by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to process, house and transition the influx of illegal immigrant minors that have arrived in the U.S. in recent weeks. A Pentagon official demanded Judicial Watch pull the story three days after it got published but backed off when they requested he put it in writing.
Citizens in California are blocking buses and forcing them to turn around. Just yesterday we reported on a health crisis brewing at Lackland Air Force base in Texas where an illegal immigrant camp is contained. And remember when we reported back some months ago that Eric Holder and Arne Duncan stated that they would force school districts to accept illegal immigrant children — or face federal criminal charges?
We know the federal government was advertising for “escorts” for illegals as early as January. We also know the federal government was advertising food stamps south of the border. And all of this is falling on the backs of American taxpayers who are already stretched to care for their own children.
We have also reported here about gang members being part of this wave of illegal immigrants — not just little children. Furthermore, Judicial Watch reports that U.S. Border Patrol agents are being recruited to serve as babysitters, saying “this is the front-line federal agency responsible for preventing terrorists and weapons of mass destruction from entering the United States. Yet agents with “child care or juvenile teaching and/or counseling” are being recruited to feed, monitor, interact and provide security for the illegal alien minors until they are placed elsewhere.”
As more information emerges about the ongoing crisis on our southern border, it seem harder to believe it was not a planned event by the Obama administration. That’s not that conspiracy theory – it’s trend analysis.
