Former Delta Commander Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin dropped a bombshell this week when he revealed President Barack Obama is letting terrorists flow across the U.S.-Mexico border, and that Republicans are too “paranoid” to stop him.
A Judicial Watch report that cited Mexican officials claimed that ISIS has established a presence just south of the Texas border with Mexico.
“ISIS is conducting reconnaissance of regional universities,” the report claimed, “the White Sands Missile Range; government facilities in Alamogordo, NM; Ft. Bliss; and the electrical power facilities near Anapra and Chaparral, NM.”
While speaking to The Daily Caller, Boykin accused the president of “refusing to obey the law,” and said Republicans are “abdicating” their responsibility.
“The fundamental responsibility of the president is to protect America in this instance. We know there are more than just immigrant day-laborers coming across that border. There are terrorists coming across that border, as well as drug dealers and people who are involved in criminal activity,” Boykin said. “When the president refuses to obey the law, and does so in a way that we are inviting people who are here to do us harm, I don’t think there’s any question that it is unconstitutional, it is dangerous, and the American people will pay the price for this.”
Boykin, who served as President George W. Bush’s undersecretary of defense for intelligence, went on to say that Republicans are just as much to blame for this.
“The Republican Party is so paranoid about seeming to be anti-immigrant, that they are unwilling to step up and discharge their constitutional responsibilities to hold the president in check. Fundamental to our form of government is checks and balance,” he said. “The Republican Party has been totally senseless in its unwillingness and inability to hold the president accountable. It should be no surprise that there are ISIS cells that are operating in the United States and now have established bases just across our border from a couple of major U.S. cities.”
