Border security expert Zack Taylor believes the recent influx of illegal immigrants coming across the border is a premeditated act by the Obama administration.

"The situation that we're seeing is massive political deception being hoisted on the American people by the administration — principally, Health and Human Services and the Department of Homeland Security and the executive branch above them," Taylor told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV on Wednesday.

"The Border Patrol has been under fire, and administrative interference has been going on with them since 2009 in a serious manner," he said.

"Everything from how they do their job to how they're paid," said Taylor, chairman of the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers. "We understand exactly what's happening, but I'm not sure that Congress and the American people will understand the impact it's having."

Taylor contends that what the Obama administration is "trying to do is make the Border Patrol as ineffective as possible — by tying the agents up here in Nogales, a thousand miles away from where these [illegal immigrants] cross. This is, by the way, the biggest drug and [illegal immigrant] smuggling quarter in the world."

When asked by Hayworth if he thought the influx of illegal immigrants was "a premeditated action taken by the current administration," Taylor answered: "Yes."

"One reason we can talk about premeditation in this is we see that bids went out from the Department of Homeland Security to certain organizations, certain facilities to take on these illegal minors as they have been brought across this border," Hayworth said.

Republican lawmakers have also accused the administration of being complicit in the influx of minors coming across the border due to lax immigration laws, specifically an executive order signed by President Barack Obama known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which delays deportations for immigrant children.
