Last night, Barack Obama equated oppression of foreigners to not opening our borders to everyone. He paraphrased Scripture, “Scripture tells us that we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger – we were strangers once, too.” What he was really saying is that our borders are open and it’s everyones’ right to come here. Eric Holder said amnesty is a “civil right”.
These people are dangerous globalists, especially when one considers that fact that other nations in the world are socialist, communist dictatorships.
Barack Obama stood before the American people last night to give one of his shortest speeches, lasting about 17 minutes. It was short because it was merely that of a unilateral ruler issuing a fiat. There wasn’t much to say except for calling upon God who, unbeknownst to most, was supportive of illegal immigration.
Obama didn’t just issue a fiat for 6 million foreigners, he basically launched amnesty for all 11 million living here, a figure which is greatly underestimated. He sent Jeh Johnson to the border to tell law enforcement they can’t pursue people here illegally though he says he will deport criminals and those who are caught at the border.
There will be no controls over who gets his “temporary” amnesty, no follow through or follow up, and he will continually expand the eligibility requirements. He is deceitful, conniving, lawless and he’s a determined leftist ideologue.
Journalist Kendric Ward, writing for Watchdog.org, listed five reasons to oppose Obama’s illegal amnesty announced last evening. Basically, it’s because Barack Obama can’t be trusted.
- Breakdown at the Border: Total deportations credited to Immigration and Customs Enforcement declined 15 percent from 2013 to 2014. Most of these deportation were at the border.
- Interior Mess: Deportations from the interior dropped 34 percent from last year and are 58 percent lower than the peak in 2009.
- Easier on criminals: The number of criminal aliens deported from the interior declined 23 percent since last year and is down 39 percent since the peak in 2011.
- Felons Go Free: in 2014, deportation processing was initiated for only about 143,000 aliens out of the 585,000 encountered by agents. Tens of thousands of those let go by ICE agents had been labeled a criminal threat.
- In the Wind: The number of aliens who have received a final order of removal but who are still in the United States has risen to nearly 900,000. Nearly 160,000 of these are convicted criminals who were released by ICE and are currently at large.
The United States government can’t even keep track of the people coming here who have jumped visas, does anyone believe they will keep track of 5 – 6 million? It will be at least 11 million when Obama is done.
The requirements to prove eligibility are lax documentation. Since DACA, DHS has only required copies of documents to meet the eligibility requirement for amnesty, for proving the length of presence in the U.S. and to prove identity.
Everyone here illegally will claim they meet the requirements with rare exceptions.
We don’t know what he will say this evening, but we can make an estimate based on what he has done under DACA.
If he follows his own history, DHS will accept any form of documentation from report cards to plane tickets – anything – all of which can be easily altered.
There aren’t even any face-to-face interviews required. Most applications will be approved based only on the documentation submitted.
Were DHS interested in identifying fraud, they’d find there is no mandate to do so. The instructions will likely state that that illegal aliens committing fraud could be denied benefits or removed. Who is going to do that?
Since the documents are anything and everything, how would DHS even identify fraud? They couldn’t begin to do it.
DACA for instance has been a magnet for more illegal immigration. Border Patrol have said that all an illegal has to do is say he’s eligible under DACA and nothing is done to him, whether they be criminals or 50 years old.
Yesterday, Obama removed the age requirement for DACA.
He is expanding his existing 2012 program called DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, for certain so-called “DREAMers” who were brought into the country illegally as children. He will ignore the age cap and will include minors arriving before 2010.
Obama will continue to loosen up the requirements not that he has gotten his way. He will continually rewrite it as he did with Obamacare.
In his speech yesterday, Obama said we already have amnesty and he’s right but not for the reasons he thinks. We have it because he doesn’t enforce the law.
Supposedly, Obama won’t give illegals access to Obamacare, food stamps or other federal benefits, the White House has suggested, nor a pathway to citizenship.
That’s a soundbite. It’s for public consumption only. How long do you think it will be before Chucky Schumer in New York says these poor people are second-class citizens. They are here legally and are starving in the streets or dying because they don’t have proper healthcare.
Watchdog reports that almost 100,000 Floridians who have signed up for Obamacare have “immigration inconstancies. That’s only Florida. It’s going on in all 50 states.
Obama said he will expand the HB1 high-skilled tech worker visa program. Corporations not only underpay the workers, they have a program called “handcuffing”, which is similar to indentured servitude, U.S. companies are able to abuse the green card process by preventing foreign employees from changing jobs while the green car approval is pending for seven years.
They can pay them anything they want and they do. These workers will be in direct competition with the 50% of the college students who can’t find jobs.
This isn’t the free market or capitalism at work, it’s crony Capitalism or crony Socialism at work though Zuckerberg and his corporate buddies are unhappy with Mr. Obama’s deal. Somehow they must have been under the delusion that Obama and the Democrats care about high-skilled workers. Obama only wants people he can manipulate into voting for Democrats. Intelligent and well-educated people won’t help him reach his goal.
Kendric Ward reported last week that a lawsuit has been filed by former ICE attorney, Patricia Vroom, against DHS for using “prosecutorial discretion” to release criminal aliens and drop deportation cases.
Staff lawyers’ objections to the increasingly loose policies were dismissed by supervisors. “We don’t give a s***,” one supervisor reportedly said. Another called Vroom’s office “f***d up.” Government adjudicators and attorneys who tried to enforce existing laws were purged from their positions.
We can expect all cases to be treated with the same degree of “prosecutorial discretion.”
It is what it sounds like, secure communities are no longer and priority enforcement, which is not in alignment with our current immigration laws, will be the new mantra with a heavy reliance on “prosecutorial discretion.”
Illegal immigrant parents of U.S. citizens who have been in the country more than five years with no criminal record will be legalized.
Obama didn’t specify, but the White House indicates this population could be granted deportation relief for three years “at a time” and be eligible for work permits after background checks and paying fees. They also must pay taxes though a disproportionate number work off the books.
Illegal immigrant parents of those who qualify under DACA and agricultural workers who are in the country illegally. Both groups had been rumored to be part of Obama’s plan.
It won’t only be parents, it will be all the children and then we can’t forget about the extended family.
Certainly, many will commit fraud when filling out the paperwork and since there is little in the way of rebuke for that, it will attract the type of people who commit fraud.
Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies wrote the following in a paper:
“The president’s gradual, calculated dismantling of our immigration system has caused morale to plummet in the agencies of the Department of Homeland Security. Career immigration officials have courageously objected in public, and sometimes resorted to lawsuits to draw attention to the administration’s subversion of the law. In denial about their principled objections to his scheme, now the president is hoping to stifle their voices by offering them a pay increase as part of this outrageous plan. His assumption that they are motivated by money shows just how little respect he has for the men and women who have devoted their careers to public service in immigration.”
“Some have told me that illegal alien criminals they have arrested have even taunted them, saying they know the ICE officers can’t do anything to them because of Obama administration policies,” Vaughan wrote.
Obama is taking care of that. He’s completely changing the way law enforcement operates. They can catch people at the border, but once they’re here, Obama has their backs. Welcome to the New America, one in which the poor, uneducated and the communists and socialists from around the world have free access to the United States through our open borders.
Very few congressmen talk about our sovereignty any longer. We are all citizens of the world, a world not as free as our country has been, a world that is run by statists to varying degrees.
America as we knew it is over. Obama isn’t even hiding his brazen dictatorial approach to governance any longer. He smirked his way through his speech last night and feigned concern for the people who are not citizens. You didn’t hear, nor will you hear, concern for the citizens already here. They don’t figure into the equation of rapidly pushing American into a permanent Democrat majority, one that is as far-left as the party has ever been.
Remember when Barack Obama said, “The Constitution is an imperfect document – it reflects some deep flaws.” He is bent on changing our deeply-flawed Constitution and it will soon look like the U.N’s or one of the other statist nations in the world.
Speaker John Boehner promised to do something when the 114th Congress convenes. Pray he does because this is only the beginning. He will use “prosecutorial discretion” for climate change, coal, treaties, our bank accounts, education, and just about anything else you can think of. He is destroying our Republic and replacing it. I can’t speak to his motives or how good a person he is or isn’t, but in the end, it doesn’t matter at all – the results are the same.
We are no longer a nation of laws, we are a nation of Humanistic relativity and we are governed by the elite because we are “stupid Americans.”
He will continue to violate our laws and lie about it. Even the AP called him out for his “notable omissions”. Check it out here.
