Where’s the Outcry Against Obama’s Deportation Order?

The Left has a serious problem with selective outcry.

While leftists struggle to come to terms with President Donald Trump’s temporary moratorium on refugees and decry his coming crackdown on illegal immigrants, you won’t hear a peep from those same people regarding Barack Obama’s little-discussed deportation order that he enacted on his way out the door.

Thousands of oppressed Cubans continue to seek refuge elsewhere to escape the Castro regime’s iron fist. Nevertheless, Obama, who extended unbefitting olive branches to the Cuban government, broke longstanding protocol by making a sly, last-minute decision to ban and ultimately deport defectors who land on American soil. Those who were hoping to be protected under the U.S. “wet foot-dry foot” policy suddenly aren’t.

As Obama explained it, “Effective immediately, Cuban nationals who attempt to enter the United States illegally and do not qualify for humanitarian relief will be subject to removal. By taking this step, we are treating Cuban migrants the same way we treat migrants from other countries.” Chances are, most leftists who see that quote without any attribution could mistake it for a Trump directive. The Left has a serious problem with selective outcry, which depends entirely on who is in office and the political circumstances.
