For eight years, former President Barack Obama drove America into the ground.
Under his leadership, the economy was left in terrible shape, and America was a laughing stock around the world.
And now Obama is red in the face after a big secret went public.
Barack Obama is working overtime to destroy President Trump.
At every speaking event he blasts the President, and his former officials are still working to implement his agenda.
And his disdain for the President seems to go even further.
Research from the Sunlight foundation uncovers that on January 18th, and 19th 2017, 190 records from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) website were removed.
With Trump’s inauguration on the 20th of January, this is one of the last moves of the Obama Administration.
The 190 records are most speeches made by ICE officials, going back to 2004.
“With a couple of clicks of a mouse, access to a federal government web resource containing 12 years of primary source materials on ICE’s history was lost,” the Sunlight Foundation wrote, noting that archived speeches dating back from 2004 were among those deleted.
Among those deleted are speeches from former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan, who is a prominent supporter of Trump’s illegal immigration agenda.
This includes a February 2016 speech about the “Unaccompanied Minor Crisis,” where Homan describes how the Obama Administration was working to solve the problem.
Of course, he wasn’t doing much, at least in comparison to the Trump Administration.
But this shows just how much Obama’s Administration tried to remove from history before leaving office.
If for the next four to eight years Democrats were going to blast President Trump over calling the problems at the border a “crisis,” it looks very bad if Obama’s Administration was using the same language.
Because for a long time, the Democrat Party was very concerned about illegal immigration.
In fact, for decades, the loudest voice against illegal immigration was the labor unions that now strongly oppose President Trump.
Illegal immigrants flooding over the border harms American workers more than anybody.
They offer cheap labor, oftentimes completely off the books, which cuts wages for American workers, and destroys jobs.
But something shifted when President Trump took office.
It’s almost like the Democrats never truly cared about the issue, but saw playing lip service to it as a great way to gain voters.
Now that President Trump is actually taking action, they need to shift their positions on the issue.
Having droves of Obama-era speeches decrying the border crisis doesn’t look good with their current talking points.
This is especially true with the flood of illegal immigrants being much higher than it ever was under Obama’s watch.
This year alone, over 100,000 illegal immigrants have been apprehended each month alone.
By the end of the year, we could see over one million border apprehensions.
But now that Mexico is working with the Trump Administration following his tariff threat, that number is likely to go down.
Do you think there is a “crisis” at the border?
