Buck Sexton of TheBlaze provides three potential situations that could happen at the border, where Obama is doing his best to keep it a sieve.
“There’s no doubt that the situation at the border is a total mess right now, which means that the unexpected is likely to happen,” Sexton said. “The president is going to do something. We’re not clear on what that is, but we’re going to have to take a look at what the possibilities are if we’re going to anticipate them.”
The former Central Intelligence agent suggests using a tactic he learned while in the CIA, called “red cell.” “Red cell is basically a war-gaming exercise; but it looks specifically at high-impact, low-probability scenarios,” he explained. “Things that could happen, and if they did happen, would really make a very big difference. It also looks at things that are likely, and tries to then give us a sense, an analytic sense, of where all this is going.”
“It’s a way of viewing potential outcomes without actually knowing the future,” he added.
The first anticipated possibility would be a “show of force” against U.S. citizens.
“This is based upon the reporting that federal agents are going to be showing up now with batons and with riot shields, prepared for less than lethal force usage against American citizens who protest these busing policies of taking illegal immigrants who are caught at or near the border and moving them into cities or towns far away from the border,” Sexton said.
Sexton’s guest, the president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, Dan Stein, said that there is “no question” there could be “an incident” saying, “the average American would see [this] confirming in his or her mind that the federal government has set itself directly at variance with the interests of the American people.”
The second possibility is that Obama could expand deferred action categories. “This is just the ‘pen and the phone’ situation, where he just, on his own, says: ‘You know what, we’re not going to send back whole sections of people, whole different groups of people, because I say so,’” Sexton explained.
Stein responded that “nothing” could stand in the president’s way of expanding his power in such a way because “he’s already usurped the Congress’ role and taken control of who gets to come into this country.”
The last possibility Sexton considered was that there could be a “public health crisis” to force the Democrats to change their stance on the situation, which he said “seems to be amnesty in different ways and different means.”
According to a border health care official, a number of illegals entering the country have been diagnosed with various diseases ranging from tuberculosis, scabies, and chickenpox to a growing number of STD’s.
“The Democratic Party, Joe Biden, Senator Feinstein, they own this border crisis,” Stein said. “When Border Patrol agents are busy with young people, they’re not patrolling the borders.”
“I’ll tell you that the administration is playing with fire,” Stein remarked. “They’ve backed themselves into a very dangerous corner politically. …[And] the American people are seriously at risk.”
