Just as it was dawning on always-late-to-the-party Speaker of the House John Boehner that the Obama Administration simply can’t be trusted to enforce immigration law, it emerges that the Obama Administration… has not been enforcing immigration law.
At least 70 percent of asylum applications showed signs of fraud, according to a secret 2009 internal government audit that found many of those cases had been approved anyway.
Asylum fraud undermines the integrity of our immigration system and hurts U.S. taxpayers. Once individuals are granted asylum, they receive immediate access to all major federal welfare programs.
And it’s just a coincidence that all of these bureaucratic SNAFUs accrue to the political benefit of Mr. Barack Obama and his party.
