Something Doesn't Seem Right Here

U.S. plans raids to deport families who surged across border
The Department of Homeland Security has begun preparing for a series of raids that would target for deportation hundreds of families who have flocked to the United States since the start of last year, according to people familiar with the operation.
The nationwide campaign, to be carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents as soon as early January, would be the first large-scale effort to deport families who have fled violence in Central America, those familiar with the plan said. More than 100,000 families with both adults and children have made the journey across the southwest border since last year, though this migration has largely been overshadowed by a related surge of unaccompanied minors.

After all this time, the United States government is going to start deporting  hundreds of families of illegal aliens?  Something smells fishy.  Why now?  Especially after how the Obama administration has reacted to what Trump has been saying about the situation.  What's going on?  

I have a theory.  If all goes well, and we start enforcing our laws without many problems, then I think we can safely assume that the Democrats and the Obama administration have decided that this illegal immigration mess is doing them more harm than good.  

However, if this turns out to be a fiasco, especially if it looks like it was caused sheer incompetence and stupidity on the part of the U.S. government, then I will suspect that this is a preemptive strike to turn public sentiment against enforcement of current immigration laws, including deporting illegal aliens.  If this results in fiasco, it will be caused purposely by the left to make the general public more irritated with the way the United States handles immigration and deportation than worried about how illegal immigration damages our country.

If the left could pull that off, they could turn enforcing existing immigration laws from a winning to a losing issue for the Republicans, and probably guarantee a victory for Hillary next November.
