Viable Fast and Furious Strategy: Force Illegal Immigration

Did the Obama administration implement a strategy that mandated guns be walked into Mexico to entice Mexican civilians to move north into the US, to encourage illegal immigration? The Cloward-Piven strategy is one that involves overwhelming the welfare roles of government so that the government collapses. Named after Frances Fox-Piven and her husband, Richard Cloward, the strategy seems to be something Barack Obama endorses. It's right up his alley. What happens when a Cloward / Piven advocate assumes the White House like Obama has? Would such a president sign on to a strategy that sent guns to Mexico in order to scare Mexicans north?

It's an interesting theory that warrants further consideration.

Via PJM:
A high-risk plot involving major elements of the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, Treasury, and State, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Border Patrol, and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CID), requiring approval from the State Department, isn’t something that comes from a mid-level bureaucrat. It is typically incited and decided by the very highest levels of appointed and elected officials.

As anyone with any experience in government will attest, there is massive institutional inertia against both change and risk. It is insurmountable without significant stakeholder support. In government, this means directors, secretaries, and elected officeholders.
There has been much speculation about the motives of Fast and Furious. This one basically adds to them; it doesn't necessarily replace them.

This piece by Bob Owens at PJM is a must-read.
