Barack Obama gave his long awaited speech on rewriting immigration law from the White House this evening.
Nothing Barack Obama said in the way of explaining his actions on immigration has any merit because the only relevant point is that he broke the law as he quoted scripture and George Bush, smirked, and told us what kind of nation we are going to be.
Alleged Republican and Fox News TV host Geraldo Rivera said Republicans had it coming because their right-wing has too much influence. He seems to forget that Conservatives deserve to be heard also though the people who wanted Obama to do it the right way includes far more than the right-wing. The part about violating the Constitution also seems to have gone over Geraldo’s head.
Never has any president seized the authority of Congress and the power from the people the way this president has. It’s an unprecedented, historical action. It is a turning point in our Constitution which had protected our freedoms from arrogant bullies and power mongers like Barack Obama.
Barack Obama quoted Exodus 22:21 tonight in his executive amnesty speech. After telling an anecdotal story about an illegal immigrant named Astrid, he said this:
Are we a nation that kicks out a striving, hopeful immigrant like Astrid – or are we a nation that finds a way to welcome her in?
Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger – we were strangers once, too.
My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too.
The actual quote is this: “You must not mistreat or oppress foreigners in any way. Remember, you yourselves were once foreigners in the land of Egypt.”
It refers to social responsibility. He takes it to a new level – he wants the borders open. He’s a globalist.
Obama talked about the need to help illegals and give them jobs but he uttered not a word about jobs for citizens. He said more than once that we are a nation of immigrants.
We are actually a nation of citizens. Obama is redefining who we are and by making us into a nation of immigrants. It allows him to erase our borders and make the USA into a multicultural paradise. John Lennon’s song Imagine fits the situation:
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
It’s the commie space cadet song.

Obama didn’t let any grass grow under his feet.
Director of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson is heading for the border in McAllen, Texas Friday to meet with DHS employees for “workforce engagements,” probably to discuss the president’s order.
DHS posted the announcement of the trip on the agency’s website.
The AP is reporting that Johnson has already been telling agency employees that the president’s actions will “focus enforcement efforts on immigrants who are serious criminals [only serious by his definition, another clear violation of our laws] — and those who crossed into the U.S. illegally or were ordered from the country in the last year.”
He wants to be certain all deportations are stopped.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), chair of the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, released this statement following the announcement of the President’s executive action on immigration:
“The thread that holds the tapestry of our country together is respect for and adherence to the rule of law. The law is our greatest unifier and our greatest equalizer. Attempts to undermine the law via executive fiat, regardless of motivation, are dangerous. President Obama may seek a fight with Republicans in Congress, but in reality he is fighting with founders of this republic and the carefully crafted separation of powers.
“Whether previous administrations acted outside of constitutional boundaries is not license to do the same. The President himself recognized his inability to do what he just did – 22 separate times. This action is not only detrimental to any chance in the new Congress for a sustainable, long-term solution on immigration, but also to the bedrock of our system of government— respect for the rule of law.
“When the executive branch acts outside of constitutional boundaries the legislative branch must use all powers afforded it to respond and restore the constitutional equilibrium. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. Rather, it should hasten the resolve of all Americans to make certain her elected officials honor the foundational document they swore to protect and defend.”
The Washington Times reported that Speaker of the House John Boehner said, “President Obama has cemented his legacy of lawlessness and squandered what little credibility he had left.”
Sen. Jeff Sessions issued a statement prior to the speech:
“President Obama previously said he could not issue an executive amnesty because ‘I’m the President of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.’ Well, apparently we now have an ‘Emperor of the United States.’ President Obama’s immigration order would provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress has repeatedly rejected: Social Security numbers, photo IDs and work permits—which will allow them to now take jobs directly from struggling Americans in every occupation. Congress must not allow this unconstitutional action. That means Congress should fund the government while ensuring that no funds can be spent on this unlawful purpose.”
Hillary Clinton applauded the president breaking the law.
We keep hearing that there is a shortage of workers and that’s why we need more immigrants. Ironically, there is no shortage.
What we do have is an enormous, unaffordable influx of cheap labor, people who will take jobs away from citizens. We will also have a million more foreigners with high-tech skills to take jobs from Americans. We already take in a million immigrants a year plus the roughly one million illegals each year who come from around the world.
We will have a nation of people who will not assimilate and who have come out of a sense of entitlement.
