When lawlessness abounds

When lawlessness abounds

Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry took to the airwaves again this past weekend to berate the occupant of the Oval Office for his negligence in enforcing border security. Perry said that the White House is either inept or doesn’t care about border security. Perry said on ABC’s This Week the “president” doesn’t care “whether or not the border of the United States is secure.” Many Americans following this border crisis have a difficult time suspending their disbelief that a president of the United States would knowingly allow the country to be invaded. It is time to call this what it is: This “president” is deliberately not enforcing border security laws. Irrespective of his reasons, he is breaking the law.

Contrast this with a Breitbart report that protesters in Murrieta, California who are blocking busses of illegals from being housed in their town will be met with federal forces in riot gear to force the citizens to accept the illegal aliens. Breitbart reports that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta to ensure that the next busload of aliens make it to the housing facility. USA Today reported that six protesters were arrested in Murrieta Friday for crossing “the yellow tape that blocked protesters from the Border Patrol station entrance.”

Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner wrote an editorial published by CNN. He said that every member of Congress and the “president” swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. He wrote: “But too often over the past five years, the President has circumvented the American people and their elected representatives through executive action, changing and creating his own laws, and excusing himself from enforcing statutes he is sworn to uphold — at times even boasting about his willingness to do it, as if daring the American people to stop him.” So Boehner promises to bring legislation to sue the “president.” Boehner doesn’t mention that Congress already has the Constitutional authority and responsibility to bring action against the “president.”

Illegals, including children, terrorists, and other malcontents, are crossing the border illegally at will. We have a “president” who is breaking the law by not enforcing it. By its inaction and lack of leadership, Congress is allowing the breaking of the law by the “president” and the illegals. The only ones getting arrested are the American citizens who are trying to prevent their town from being overrun by illegal aliens that the government, who is breaking the law, is trying to force on the citizens. Proverbs 29:2 says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bear rule, the people mourn.” God’s solution is found in Leviticus 24:22: “Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD your God.” Justice has fallen in the streets, who shall restore it?

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
