Obama’s vs Trump’s Approach to Border Security

One of life’s great ironies is that Obama has been one of the strongest enforcers of border security. His administration considerably ramped up border enforcement. In fact, Obama had more or less already done everything that could be done in that area without starting to ramp up the police state to the point where it starts irritating regular law-abiding citizens. Now imagine if Obama had done any of the new things that Trump has started. We’d be hearing howls of outrage about civil liberties violated by the great tyrant. And that would be correct. Just remember that the right was labeling Obama an out-of-control autocrat for his actions on immigration when he ordered selective enforcement. Had he ordered more aggressive enforcement he would have gotten the same criticism. Conclusion: the presence or absence of criticism bears no relationship to the relative justice of a an action.
