ATLANTA (Christian Examiner) – In a series of explosive emails obtained by Judicial Watch, several employees of the Centers for Disease Control were highly critical of President Barack Obama's acceptance of thousands of unaccompanied minors into the U.S. during the flood of illegal immigration last summer.

In the conversation between the two, Obama, referred to as "Commander," is called "the worst pres we have ever had," "the amateur," and "a Marxist too."

Worse, one email alleges the reason for the federal government allowing as many as 65,000 illegal children to stay in the U.S. is "they'll all be voting" soon – "in ten years or less."

In that respect, the CDC employees were not alone in their opinion. High profile conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh and U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert [R-Texas], among others, claimed last summer the president had orchestrated the influx of immigrants to alter the electoral landscape perm­anently. Many of the illegal immigrants were bused to areas that have historically voted for conservativ­e political candidates.

Judicial Watch obtained the records after it launched an investigation into the massive numbers of illegal immigrant children who crossed the border last year.

The CDC, Judicial Watch reported, was tasked with monitoring the children for diseases in order to prevent a public health crisis. In spite of the efforts, several illnesses – including drug-resistant TB, Dengue Fever, swine flu and enterovirus D68, a particularly stubborn virus that can cause severe respiratory distress and paralysis – cropped up in areas where the children were transferred by federal authorities. At least 14 children died from the enterovirus strain­ nationwide, the CDC reported.

The two employees involved in the email exchange were both tasked with activating the CDC's Emergency Operations Center to monitor the alarming numbers of children crossing the southern U.S. border last year.

In the first of the emails, dated June 9, 2014, George Roark, an emergency logistics management specialist in Atlanta, wrote to CDC Public Health Adviser William Adams that the influx of illegal immigrant children was "unreal."

"No country in the world would allow this," Roark wrote.

Adams replied within one minute, claiming the "Commander's intent" was to have the children voting within a decade.

Seven minutes late, Roark responded affirming Adams' charge.

"It is very clear that is the case," Roark wrote. "This fellow is the worst pres we have ever had ... he truly is 'the amateur' but a Marxist too."

Roark and Adams were not alone in their assessment of the events. Judicial Watch also disclosed a second email from a CDC intelligence analyst, Daniel Bubacz, to three other CDC employees, including Adams.

The subject of that email is "Here's all of the geniuses' take on the 'Leave No Child on the Other Side of the Border' Policy." The email contained a copy of an article, "Minor Offenses: The Growing Issue of 'Unaccompanied Children' at the U.S. Borders."

According to new federal data, the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border is rising again. More than 15,000 children under the age of 17 were caught attempting to enter the country illegally between October 2014 and March 2015.
