President Obama is on his way to Texas for a fund raising event next week. We have a border crisis, but the President is shying away from a photo op with illegal aliens. His lame excuse, “prior engagements;” Of course the excuse holds less water than the desert terrain the immigrants trudged through to reach the U.S.
The influx is overwhelming the INS in a number of ways. Texas, California and Arizona have been the targeted states for resettlement. But as reported by Fox 25 that has changed. ICE officials confirmed on Friday that at least six commercial, agency-owned charter flights have transported detainees to the Boston area.

Quotes from four decades ago.
“The new governor of California, Jerry Brown, was very concerned about refugees settling in his state. Brown even attempted to prevent planes carrying refugees from landing at Travis Air Force Base near Sacramento. . . . The secretary of health and welfare, Mario Obledo, felt that this addition of a large minority group would be unwelcome in California. And he said that they already had a large population of Hispanics, Filipinos, blacks, and other minorities.”
In fact, then Senator Joe Biden complained about the Ford administration’s move to bring Vietnamese refugees to the U.S., saying the White House “had not informed Congress adequately about the number of refugees.” Liberal presidential icon George McGovern told Newsweek, “I think the Vietnamese are better off in Vietnam.”
And Governor Moonbeam’s new approach. Presently, Governor Brown approved a measure allowing non-citizens to get driver’s licenses in California. He also signed a law titled the Trust Act, which bars law enforcement from detaining a foreign national they arrest for a period of time, so that immigration officials can pick up the person(s) charged and start deportation proceedings. Additionally, another law Brown signed allows illegal immigrants to get a law license and practice law in the state and included measures that would restrict who could charge illegal immigrants for aiding them with legal work, Fox News Latino reported in October of 2013.
