Americans for Legal Immigration PAC today called on the Obama administration to immediately close the southern border and restrict all inbound air and ground traffic from Mexico to emergencies and product delivery -- to protect American lives from the Mexican Swine Flu outbreak.
“The Obama administration’s failure to secure our borders against a possible pandemic is putting American lives at risk at a time when days and hours matter,” said William Gheen of ALIPAC. “The weak and inadequate ‘passive surveillance’ described during Sunday’s press conference is offensive to the rational mind.”
Instead of advising American tourists not to travel to Mexico, or closing border crossings and air travel gates to essential travel only, the Obama administration is treating Mexico like a 51st state, instead of separate nation, opined ALIPAC officials in a press release.
ALIPAC also voiced dismay with the Obama administration’s failure to appoint key leadership prior to this crisis.
America is entering this crisis without a secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) or appointees in any of the department’s 19 key posts, noted language in the release.
President Barack Obama has not yet chosen a surgeon general or the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His choice to run the Food and Drug Administration awaits confirmation, criticized the ALIPAC officials.
“Obama was playing golf Sunday. Instead, he should have been addressing the nation, securing the borders, and filling the gaps in our government leadership from an emergency command center!” exclaimed Gheen.
“He refuses to send troops to the border to stop the violence from spilling over or the Mexican flu from crossing into America. Instead we get second tier bureaucrats telling Americans to wash our hands and cover our mouths when we cough like a bunch of 1st grade students,” Gheen added.
Obama recently traveled to Mexico to pledge his support for Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty and the unconstitutional implementation of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SSP) launched under the Bush administration, charged language in the release.
The SPP, which ALIPAC officials emphasized has no approval from the American public or Congressional oversight, states borders should remain open during pandemics:
“[Border restrictions] will not be more restrictive or maintained longer than necessary to achieve the veterinary or public health objective so as to avoid unnecessary interference with the movement of people and goods within North America.”
The Mexican Swine Flu outbreak impact on the American populace will be more severe due to the lack of action by the Obama administration, their failure to appoint a head of Health and Human Services and a Surgeon General -- and Obama’s adherence to an economic plan, which supersedes U.S. Sovereignty, the laws of Congress, and civilian control, blasted authors of the press release.
“We are asking our supporters to call their Congressional representatives immediately to demand that Congress hold emergency hearings to override the open borders policies of the Obama administration and protect our citizens from this potential pandemic,” Gheen concluded.
