Unions Allege the Public Is Being Duped About Immigration

Recorded on July 28, 2012

From The Heritage Foundation, I'm Ernest Istook.

The Obama Administration is being accused of deceiving us about border security.

The accusations come from the heads of the unions that represent Border Patrol agents and Immigration agents.

They claim that almost any illegal immigrant can avoid arrest by claiming to be a “Dreamer”--one of the million illegal immigrants that President Obama says can stay here if they came at an early age and went to high school in America.

They say anyone who is picked up can simply claim they went to high school in the U.S. Agents are instructed not to check the story but to release them on their own say-so—sometimes even when a violent crime is involved.

When thousands of agents claim the Obama Administration and Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano are deliberating lying to the public, we'd better pay attention.

Public safety is at stake, as well as respect for our laws.
