Votes over Safety
In the past we saw the IRS trampling on people’s rights for electoral advantage. We were told that it was just a few overzealous people in Cincinnati. We still don’t have the full story but we know that it wasn’t a rogue operation.
Now another branch of government is involved. This is even more serious because it potentially affects our safety. A memo from a field office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service was recently discovered. It asked employees to grant citizenship to as many “citizen voters” as possible “due to the election year”.
I don’t think this will become a major story. Right now much of the media sees its primary responsibility is to stop Donald Trump and put Hillary Clinton in the White House. Even the New York Times has withheld information that could hurt the Clinton campaign.
No matter what people’s views are on immigration issues, it is important to recognize that some very dangerous people want to get into the country. We must be especially careful in granting citizenship. It is absolutely outrageous that people we pay to enforce the law are willing to put votes over safety.
