Is there any better example of the rampant corruption that defines the administration of President Barack Obama?
The Department of Homeland Security is refusing to release a report that could reveal the truth about Obama’s failed immigration policy.
Why? Some say it’s because they fear the information will push Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump straight into the White House.
It would finally prove that Obama has been lying to the American people about the true number of illegal immigrants successfully making it across the United States border with Mexico, Fox News reports.
“Sources say it was completed in November and it shows roughly half of adults who attempt to cross the border make it – approximately 250,000 total.”
While the DHS claims its agents capture 80 percent of illegal adults, suspicions arose when the department refused to release the report for review.
When questioned about the suspicious delay of the report by Fox News, a DHS spokesman said, “The work is preliminary and requires further refinement, to ensure the new measures are accurate and reliable.”
But this contradicts what many sources familiar with the report have said.
The President of the Crime Prevention Research Center, John Lott, recently told Fox News, “The Obama administration knows that the number of illegal aliens successfully getting across the Mexican border is 159 percent higher than they are telling people.”
When the report funded by tax-payers was presented to members of the House and Senate, sources alleged that the data was tampered with to provide the results that support Obama’s claim that the border security is extremely effective.
Instead of counting just the number of adults who were caught illegally, known as Interdiction Effectiveness Rate (IER), this number was combined with those that turned themselves in, unaccompanied children, and other special circumstances.
This combination is what led to the finding that only 20% of illegals made it onto American soil.
Jessica Vaughan, director of policy research for the Center for Immigration Studies, said the information was likely suppressed because Obama wants, “people to believe that illegal immigration is a thing of the past.”
Another source claimed the suppression of the report was likely due to “political reasons… because it would look bad and help elect Donald Trump.”
With immigration being a staple in the presidential race, a revelation of such a large number of illegals would undoubtedly influence party platforms, and bolster Trump’s call for a wall along the Mexican border.
Obama has taken a stubborn stance throughout this election process, repeatedly expressing his disapproval of Trump. He and his wife Michelle, have hit the campaign trail with Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton and formally endorsed her.
And it looks like Obama will do anything to avoid lending validity to Trump’s strict immigration policy proposals.
