OF COURSE: White House Accused of Burying Immigration Report Because They Thought it Would Help Trump (VIDEO)
You’ll be shocked to learn the Obama administration may have buried a report on illegal immigration because they believed it would help Donald Trump.
FOX News reports:
DHS accused of sitting on damning border report as immigration issue drives presidential race
Federal lawmakers seeking to pinpoint the number of illegal immigrants who successfully sneak across the southern border ordered up a report from the Department of Homeland Security, but the agency refuses to release it and instead cites a misleading statistic that overstates the number who are nabbed, sources told Fox News.
DHS denied it is holding back the report, but sources say it was completed in November and that it shows roughly half of adults who attempt to cross the border make it – approximately 250,000 in total.
But that number is at odds with DHS’ official estimates. The agency claims authorities catch 80 percent of adults trying to sneak in, but critics say the figure is padded to make it appear border security is more effective than it really is.
“The Obama administration knows that the number of illegal aliens successfully getting across the Mexican border is 158 percent higher than they are telling people,” said John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, who is familiar with the report. “The administration has made fraudulent changes in the numbers to hide this.”
If released by the Obama administration, the true numbers could have major implications in the current presidential race, in which illegal immigration and border security have become a key issue, say observers.
One source familiar with the report told Fox News that DHS is suppressing the report for “political reasons . . . because it would ‘look bad’ and ‘help elect Donald Trump.”

Ace of Spades makes an excellent point about this:
If these f**kers have decided it’s Thunderdome and laws exist simply to be broken as tactics may require, then only a schmuck continues playing by Marquis de Queensbury rules.
I used to argue against that position when commenters pushed it.
I’m done. They were right.
If it be Thunderdome, then let it be Thunderdome all around.
The Obama administration, the Hillary campaign and the Democratic Party will do anything, no matter how unethical and possibly illegal to win.
Ace is right.
Playing like a gentleman doesn’t work anymore.
