In response to Omar Gonzalez running across the North Lawn to the North Portico of the White House and entering the executive mansion, the Secret Service is now locking the doors so it doesn’t happen again.
Thanks to Omar Gonzalez breaching the White House border, the Secret Service is also considering screening all visitors at designated checkpoints before allowing them to enter public areas outside of the president’s home. That means if Granny wants to tour the People’s House, there’s a good chance she may have to endure an extensive TSA-style pat down.
But obviously what holds true at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue does not apply everywhere else.
Think about it: trespassers who jump the fence on our Southern Border are not tackled and hauled away in a police car. Instead, despite some of them being a threat to defenseless Americans, illegal immigrants are given a warm welcome by the man the Secret Service is scrambling to protect.
What’s ironic is that laws are in place at the White House, and well they should be, to protect the safety and well-being of the man who purposely puts American lives at risk.
Maybe Obama hasn’t experienced it, but it’s an awful feeling when one realizes they’re being victimized needlessly.
And awful is how most Americans feel right about now.
Our children and loved ones are being overrun, and in some cases even hurt, by those hopping the border fence. Moreover, thousands of American children are being infected with rare viruses and bacterial diseases that are being imported by illegal fence-jumpers Obama has encouraged to swarm our streets, cities and classrooms.
Worse yet, undocumented gang members, teenage assassins, ISIS, and all manner of social detritus continue to have free movement in American communities. Meanwhile, to ensure that such trouble stays far from the White House door, checkpoints – that don’t even exist on a large part of our Southern border – are being set up so that innocent American tourists can be screened.
The White House already had procedures in place to stop intruders, but because none of those measures were employed, Omar Gonzalez may end up spending 10 years in prison. However, for the rest of us, there is still no ironclad protocol or increased security measures in effect, or even up for discussion, to ensure our safety. Therefore, unlike the president, every American remains vulnerable.
Why? Because what’s good for the Big Goose does not apply to the little ganders.
Recently, 40,000 convicted criminal aliens were released by United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement. These people, all of whom had jumped a fence like Omar Gonzalez, but unlike him are now wandering free, taxing our healthcare and economic system, infecting our children, and, in essence, threatening everyone’s lives except Barack Obama’s.
Moreover, thus far there is no coordinated effort to deter threats like MS-13 gang members, ISIS terrorists and other dangerous characters on the Southern Border from doing what Omar just did on a smaller scale. So basically, outside the White House grounds the citizens remain defenseless and the message to America is that one person matters and the rest don’t.
Case in point: For a 16-year-old girl in Washington state, things didn’t go as well as they did for Sasha and Malia, who had just lifted off by helicopter together with their father for a weekend getaway at Camp David, when clearly disturbed Iraqi vet Gonzalez, with a car full of ammunition, two machetes, and a serrated knife with a three-inch blade arrived on the North Lawn.
The teen in Washington State had no one to protect her from an illegal alien named Roger Emilson Acosta-Pagoada, who illegally crossed the Rio Grande and spent 120 days in jail, then managed to find and subsequently rape a young girl and threaten to kill her and her family if she reported what happened to the police.
Mr. Acosta-Pagoada’s victim didn’t have the luxury of Belgian Malinois attack dogs, Secret Service agents, roof snipers, or alarms. Quite the contrary – she was needlessly placed in a dangerous position by a president whose progressive political ideology takes priority over the safety of American children.
As the rest of America endures the plight of the dangerous immigration policy he’s imposed, it must be comforting for Barack Obama to know he doesn’t have to worry that in the future Omar Gonzalez, or an illegal immigrant like Roger Emilson Acosta-Pagoada will show up on his doorstep to threaten him and his young daughters.
