Sarah Palin says America is like a battered housewife and Obama should be impeached
The Republican politician said the 'unsecured border crisis is the last straw' for the United States
Writing for Breitbart, the outspoken Republican politician made calls for Obama to be impeached, as she criticised US immigration laws.
Palin wrote: “Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ‘no mas.’.”
She continued: “Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept.”
Palin claimed that “an untold number of illegal immigrants will kick off their shoes and come on in, competing against Americans for our jobs and limited public services” because Obama “prioritizes parties over doing the job he was hired by voters to do”.
“Securing our borders is obviously fundamental here; it goes without saying that it is his job,” she added.
Joining a growing group of Republicans calling for the impeachment of Obama, Palin went on to criticise the nation’s debt, as well as the state of the healthcare system and a variety of public services.
She asked: “Who’s looking out for the American workers? Who has their backs? Who fights for them?”
Palin concluded that “President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here”.
She ended with: “It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.
“The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”
According to the Washington Post, House Speaker John A. Boehner told reporters that he “disagreed” with the views expressed by Palin in the piece.
A number of Republicans have called for the President to be impeached in recent years, but Palin is one of the most high-profile figures to do so.
