Winston Churchill famously said, "In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.” The Obama Administration thinks A Big Lie needs a bodyguard of smaller lies.

Washington is waging a war, but the enemy is its own people: the traditional American nation. The horrible truth about the Obama/ Rubio Amnesty/ Immigration Surge is that it is advanced precisely because it will dispossess Americans. That unmentionable reality is concealed with a bodyguard of smaller lies, petty deceits in service to the larger deception that immigration laws cannot be enforced.

A recent example: we are told that the federal government cannot fulfill a Congressional mandate to establish a biometric entry-exit system to allow the government to fulfill its basic responsibility of ensuring which individuals are complying with their period of admission and which are not. Instead, even though this system is not in place, the Department of Homeland Security assures us that the government is still mysteriously capable of identifying “those who overstay their visas” even though the basic infrastructure does not exist...

In fact, a mandatory exit verification system was first required by the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRAIRA) and reiterated numerous times in other Acts of Congress...

Which administration did not inform airport authorities that any new, much less existing, international arrival terminals at airports would have to include secure departure Federal Inspection Services (FIS) facilities?

... it was the very Clinton Administration that Heyman once served and that signed these regulations into law.

The Clinton Administration's failure was not for lack of resources. After all, it was the Department of Justice under Janet Reno which showed a fanatical willingness to endure untold trouble and expense to arrest and deport a little Cuban boy named Elian Gonzalez. However, somehow this same Janet Reno never instructed Immigration and Naturalization Service to plan for secure departure facilities at future international airports...

The cost to the taxpayer? Literally nothing. International arrival inspections both in the 1990's and today are paid for by international passenger and importers. International passengers pay a fee; importers pay a duty. A simply policy change of doubling the fee from $10 to $20 per arriving passenger would easily fund the added expense of more Immigration, Customs and Agriculture Inspectors (who in any event are now conveniently merged in One Face at the Border in the person of U.S. Customs and Border Protection ([BP])...

But of course, a lie cannot stand on its own. It requires its own bodyguard of lies. And, as the push for nation-breaking amnesty continues, the lies just keep on multiplying.
