Skip to comments.Obama's Attention to Border Crisis Outrages African-Americans
Posted on 08/19/2014 5:09:19 AM PDT by bestintxas
President Barack Obama's attention to the illegal immigration crisis, which could lead him to issue executive orders early next week to delay deportations and grant work permits to as many as 6 million migrants, has soured many of his core voters: African-Americans.
Many blacks, who twice voted for Obama in record numbers to elect him and keep him as the nation's first African-American president, are angry that he has neglected the problems facing inner cities while working on the border crisis.
These big-city ills include chronic black unemployment, poor housing conditions, steep prices for food and services, low high-school graduation rates, and high crime rates.
"Black people are being played," Herman Cain, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, told Newsmax. "They have been taken for granted by Democrats for decades. Now they've reached a boiling point with this whole crisis on the border, and some of them are speaking out."
By all accounts and as reported by Brietbart.com, the number of Border Patrol arrests of illegal immigrants since Oct. 1 stands at 174,000 and is still rising.
Cain and other African-American conservatives charge that Obama "manufactured this crisis" through a 2012 executive order that created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The DACA ended the threat of deportation for as many as 670,000 illegals between the ages of 15 and 31 who were brought to the U.S. before their 16th birthday. In June, the administration extended the program for two more years.
"We've got a real crisis in every major inner city in this country," Cain said. "They've done exactly nothing to understand the problem, let alone do anything about it."

Why do amnesty for outsiders when Americans are hurting?
Uh...no! They will never turn on Obama unless he cancels their welfare checks. NEVEREVER!
Just don’t confuse black voters turning on Obama as being aligned with or allies of whites.
`this obammy is no fool.
he is purposly trying to devide and destroy the U.S.
What attention would that be?
Yes his support among Blacks will tumble to 93%.
Oh really??? Sorry, until it is noticed by a non-conservative website I won’t believe it. On all other subjects I trust our websites, but not this one. Not a peep on the street or anyone other than Sowell or Williams have I heard of this.
Illegal immigration plays a role in the problems facing inner cities, so implementing solutions to the border crisis COULD be a step towards helping to solve those problems.
However, the way Mr. Obama intends to "solve" the border crisis will do nothing but make the problems facing our inner cities worse than they already are.
Maybe they should protest in front of the White House...Oh wait, they are busy in Missouri right now.
It's gonna' get weird and ironic when central American gangs show up in urban high schools and in minority neighborhoods. Blacks are going to be wondering where the firm but fair predominantly white law and order police are when they need them.
“Uh...no! They will never turn on Obama unless he cancels their welfare checks”
He could cancel them and say Bush did it. Many would believe him.
And who can blame them? They're here *legally* yet can't find work.Then they find that have to compete with 20 guys named Pedro for that job on the construction site or at the supermarket.
Cuz they dippin’ inta my gibsmedats!
In each election.
Hahahaha. Theslaves were duped by the black slave owner, obama. They can’t touch him now and deserve what they get(or don’t get, more to the point). Monies which would have been redistributed to them for free stuff will now have to be shared by millions of wetbacks.
His attention to border crisis?
Is this satire?
Are these supporters of Clown Prince nobama insane?
This is why Ferguson is being ginned up, now: to keep the blacks from staying home on election day.
The whole reason for this man-made crisis is that “border crisis” is now the new euphemism for amnesty and it will be used over and over again until people cave in.
