The current border crisis where tens of thousands illegal adults and children flooding across the U.S. border sounds eerily reminiscent of a tactic used by leftist "community organizers' of which President Obama claims credentials. Journalist  Sol Stein wrote an interesting piece back in 2003 about the origins of ACORN and it's predecessor's attempts to overwhelm New York City's welfare system which seems to mimic the flood of illegal aliens crossing our border:

"It is no surprise that ACORN preaches a New Left–inspired gospel, since it grew out of one of the New Left’s silliest and most destructive groups, the National Welfare Rights Organization. In the mid-sixties, founder George Wiley forged an army of tens of thousands of single minority mothers, whom he sent out to disrupt welfare offices through sit-ins and demonstrations demanding an end to the “oppressive” eligibility restrictions that kept down the welfare rolls. His aim: to flood the welfare system with so many clients that it would burst, creating a crisis that, he believed, would force a radical restructuring of America’s unjust capitalist economy. The flooding succeeded beyond Wiley’s wildest dreams. From 1965 to 1974, the number of single-parent households on welfare soared from 4.3 million to 10.8 million, despite mostly flush economic times. By the early 1970s, one person was on the welfare rolls in New York City for every two working in the city’s private economy. Yet far from sparking a restructuring of American capitalism, this explosion of the welfare rolls only helped to create a culture of family disintegration and dependency in inner-city neighborhoods, with rampant illegitimacy, crime, school failure, drug abuse, non-work, and poverty among a fast-growing underclass." 

This sounds exactly like the current Federal Government plan to flood communities with these illegal aliens and already has overwhelmed the Federal Government agencies like the Border Patrol and Health and Human Services. Considering President Obama's roots in community organizing and those in the White House who also have roots in leftist "community organizing" it just might be the current flood of illegal immigrants into the U.S. was a planned all the time by folks in the Obama Administration.
