The Berlin airlift came about when the communist DDR walled off West Berlin, essentially land locking the city. Regardless of the wall, the Americans jumped it from the air. Now we have an issue on our southern border with having illegal aliens escape their own countries going right across our porous border. What makes it a perilous trip is not Mexico trying to keep people IN the country but promoting they go to the U.S. and send back greenbacks. In order to do that, these illegals have to get past the predators, laying in wait, within the borders of Mexico and Central America. That alone should help to deter the influx of illegals but those illegals, knowing they will stay in America if they make it, feel the trek is worth the risks.
Now Obama wants to eliminate the risks, sidestep Congress once again, and bring about a new illegal class–the refuge. But it won’t stop with his little experiment. There will soon be refuge assessment centers in every country, kinda like ObamaCare exchanges. Just another scheme to break our bank faster. We might have to go to war with Mexico sometime soon and send the refuges to South America. This administration is way out of hand.
