Obama Advisor: Amnesty Plan Hurts Latino Kids

Ouch:

“There’s a lack of leadership here… [but eventually] the president will become involved because he can’t avoid it,” said Rev. Richard Ryscavage, who serves on the White House immigration advisory panel.

That wave is building fast, and is already likely to be 50 percent larger by October than officials predicted one week ago, according to a leaked administration memo.

Officials hid the fast-growing migration crisis from the media because they’re still trying to pass a very unpopular immigration rewrite, said Ryscavage, who is a member of a new White House panel that was established last week by Obama to help deal with the wave of youth immigrants.

“That’s the [administration’s] priority — to get that Senate-type bill passed,” said Ryscavage, who is the director of the Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life.

“To be frank, they tried to hide this problem for a while” to minimize opposition to the Senate bill, he said. “They didn’t do did anything in public about it, they didn’t want to tell anyone about it… [and] they’re now in stage where they’re feeling ‘We have to figure out a strategy.’”

The Reverend’s mistake here is to think that any harm is unintentional. It isn’t. Progressive governance requires victims to turn into pressure group demanding government aid which only the progressives can provide. And if the vile progs must first cause the harm, well… broken eggs, omelets, yadda yadda yadda.

I’m thinking now of Petyr Baelish in Season 3 of Game of Thrones, or from whichever book I never read:

Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

If you’ve ever wondered about the Obama Administration’s constant lawlessness, there’s your explanation.
