    In 1954, President Eisenhower Faced a Border Invasion… His Response Puts Obama to Shame

    President Barack Hussein Obama is by no means the first president to ever have had to deal with an immigration crisis on our borders.

    In 1954, a year after Dwight Eisenhower became president, over 3 million illegal immigrants had turned America into their home. Furthermore, the border “was as porous as a spaghetti sieve,” so more illegals were constantly arriving.

    Sound familiar? Here’s the difference though between President Obama and President Eisenhower. Instead of dealing with illegal immigration through appeasement, Eisenhower chose to deal with it with the determiniation of a true leader.

    With the help of retired Gen. Joseph “Jumpin’ Joe” Swing, commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Eisenhower launched a ground-breaking capture and deport operation to root out illegals.

    A squadron of about 1000 Border Patrol agents began sweeping through the most badly hit states in search of illegals. Within months, millions of illegals were either caught and forcibly removed or voluntarily left out of outright fear.

    Why fear? Because those illegals who were caught were made to endure hell on their way back to Mexico.

    Don Coppock, who worked as a Border Patrol agent during this time period, described the journey back home that the Mexicans had to endure as “a rough trip” — and one that they “did not like.”

    Furthermore, illegals weren’t just left on the border. Rather, they were set free in the deepest and most dangerous parts of Mexico.

    By the late 1950s, illegal immigration into the United States had dropped by a whopping 95 percent. Clearly, Eisenhower’s tough-as-nails approach worked like a charm (H/T The Christian Science Monitor).

    Here’s the thing. According to those retired agents who participated in Eisenhower’s operation, the same thing could easily be done again.

    “Some say we cannot send 12 million illegals now in the United States back where they came from,” a retired agent known as Mr. Edwards told reporters. “Of course we can!”

    Indeed. It would take nothing more than a leader who’s unafraid of sticking it to those who have the audacity to violate our laws.

    Unfortunately, Barack Hussein Obama’s is anything but an actual leader.
