The 'limited resources' excuse for Obama's amnesty plan
Challenged by Republicans, Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch on Wednesday defended President Barack Obama's decision to shelter millions of immigrants from deportation though they live in the country illegally.What she should have been asked after making that statement is "What are the resources you need to enforce the law?" That would be followed by asking her "If we provided you with those resources would this administration enforce the law?"
She said that under the administration's policy, the Department of Homeland Security is focusing its efforts on the removal of "the most dangerous of the undocumented immigrants among us."
"It seems to be a reasonable way to marshal limited resources to deal with the problem" of illegal immigration, she said.
