Obama’s dumping grounds

A source tipped me off to a curious occurrence: It seems that two planeloads of illegal aliens recently were dispatched to Massachusetts. The first reportedly landed at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford. According to my tipster, approximately 160 illegals arrived on that flight and stayed nearly a week before being transferred to a Department of Homeland Security site and then released.

The second flight reportedly was diverted from Hanscom to Boston’s Logan Airport. I am told that both Massachusetts and New Hampshire officials were on hand. I reached out to Hanscom AFB for confirmation but did not receive a call back by my deadline.

How many other military bases are stealthily being used to redistribute, house, process and release illegal border crossers?

What we do know is that the Obama administration already has converted several other military bases across the country into outposts for tens of thousands of illegals from Central and South America.

San Antonio’s Lackland Air Force Base opened its doors as an illegal aliens camp last month. Port Hueneme in Ventura County, Calif., will shelter nearly 600 illegal border-crossing children and teens. The Fort Sill Army post in Lawton, Okla., was ordered to take in 1,200 illegals despite the objections of GOP Gov. Mary Fallin, who blasted the White House, saying, “The Obama administration continues to fail in its duty to protect our borders and continues to promote policies that encourage, rather than discourage, illegal immigration.”

A makeshift detention center in Nogales, Ariz., is being used as the central clearing station for the latest illegal alien surge. The deluge is a threat to national security, public safety and public health — not to mention a slap in the face to the law-abiding men and women in uniform on those bases and a kick in the teeth to law-abiding people around the world patiently waiting for approval of their visas.

Meanwhile, a law enforcement source in Texas told me that countless illegal aliens are being released into the general public despite testing positive for tuberculosis. “The feds are putting them on public transportation to God knows where,” he said.

The latest “crisis” is a wholly manufactured byproduct of White House administrative amnesties, which are supported by a toxic alliance of ethnic-vote-seeking Democrats and cheap-labor-hungry big business Republicans.

As I’ve said for two decades, illegal alien amnesties guarantee two things: more illegal immigration and more Democrat voters. Now we have a White House forcing U.S. military bases to provide benefits and services to illegals for political gain, while said White House evades responsibility for allowing military veterans to die waiting for the most basic of medical services.

And where’s the GOP “leadership” in this country? Doing the bidding of the amnesty-loving U.S. Chamber of Commerce and demonizing Republican candidates at every level who are sick and tired of giving away the store and the country.

God save us from bipartisanship.
