Corruption In High Places

August 24, 2014

David Aguilar, Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol 2005- This image or file is a work of a United States Department of Homeland Security employee, taken or made during the course of an employee's official duties. As a work of the U.S. federal government, the image is in the public domain.

There’s nothing that defines this administration as much as its lack of transparency, and its handling of immigration policy is no exception to this rule. Which is why we recommend reading the account by the Center for Investigative Reporting of James F. Tomsheck’s explosive allegations regarding corruption within the bureaucracy of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Of particular interest to our readers is the complicity of pro-amnesty Obama flunky David Aguilar, the current head of CBP, in perpetuating this deplorable situation.

The fact that the man entrusted with facilitating the President’s unlawful amnesty would disregard clear violations in his agency is not surprising, nor is the lack of responsiveness to these credible allegations. In fact, in an unprecedented move, the majority of the federal government’s inspectors general have sent a letter to Congress asking it to help them deal with this administration’s continued obstruction of their investigations into government corruption and potential criminality.

As Jonatan Turley has pointed out repeatedly, this White House is conducting its affairs in the manner of  an imperial presidency. And, as we all know, the divine right of kings does not allow for oversight, let alone scrutiny into the actions of a sovereign. Someone needs to remind the President that we live in a constitutional republic.
