Maybe IRS could help at the border

Regarding the invasion of illegals at the southern border, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the president is trying to “ramp up the resources that are necessary to meet this growing need.”

Sounds like the president is going to use this crisis to ask for more money. But the resources already are there. He could take the information technology budget from the IRS, which apparently doesn’t know how to use it. In fact, President Barack Obama might consider dedicating the whole IRS to border security. It’s very good at building stone walls.

The Border Patrol is overwhelmed by illegals. How about sending some help? The Bureau of Land Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency seem to have pretty large armed forces with nothing to do right now. Let’s use them on behalf of our citizens instead of against.
