"They Have Only Intentions of Destroying"

At Verum Serum, progressive radical Elena Herrada takes to the stage to compare Border Patrol agents to the Ku Klux Klan.

The Obama Administration apparently feels much the same way:

The Obama administration has tapped an outspoken critic of immigration enforcement on the local level to oversee and promote partnerships between federal and local officials on the issue.

Harold Hurtt, a former police chief in Houston and Phoenix, has been hired as the director for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Office of State and Local Coordination. Starting July 6, Hurtt will supervise outreach and communication between ICE, local law enforcement agencies, tribal leaders and representatives from non-governmental organizations.

"Chief Hurtt is a respected member of the law enforcement community and understands the concerns of local law enforcement leaders," said John Morton, the Homeland Security assistant secretary for ICE. "His experience and skills will be an invaluable asset to the ICEs outreach and coordination efforts."

But as a police chief, Hurtt was a supporter of "sanctuary city" policies, by which illegal immigrants who don't commit crimes can live without fear of exposure or detainment because police don't check for immigration papers.

Sounds kind of like the stuff we heard in the 50's directed at blacks. Guess it is ok to be racist now.

"...illegal immigrants who don't commit crimes..."

Meaning, "who don't commit any MORE crimes..."

Hmm. Imagine that our President is a Manchurian Candidate, brainwashed into doing all that he can to harm our nation. How would such a President do anything fundamentally differently than Obama?

How can you make such an absurd allegation about Barack Hussein Obama? I knew him in Chicago. Barack Hussein Obama is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life.

Respected in law enforcement? Really? I guess they didn't ask anyone from Phoenix.
