Criminals are welcomed as long as they haven’t spent more than a year in jail. That’s only one of the unacceptable clauses we’ve heard about in Obama’s new immigration bill that was leaked to USA Today.
His program will not deal with the terrorists coming across the border.
President Obama is prepared to bypass Congress on immigration reform with a bill of his own unless Congress acts quickly. The WH leaked their own version of immigration reform which was written without any GOP input. What happened to a balance of powers?
The bill will allow illegals to become permanent residents within 8 years. The 11 million illegals, which is more likely 20 million plus, could apply for a “Lawful Prospective Immigrant” visa, a new type of visa just conjured up by Obama. They could then apply for the same provisional legal status for their spouse and children. Of course, if their children are married, their spouses and children will be given the same status.
Once they start voting, Republicans can expect to never again win presidential elections.
Criminals will be allowed as long as they haven’t served more than a year in jail or have committed fewer than three different crimes that resulted in a total of 90 days in jail. They will be banned if they committed any offense abroad that “if committed in the United States would render the alien inadmissible or removable from the United States.”
Obama came out with this while Congress is drafting their own immigration bill, making one believe that he cares more about bypassing Congress than he does about getting anything done properly.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said Obama’s bill repeats the failures of past legislation and would be “dead on arrival” in Congress.
“It fails to follow through on previously broken promises to secure our borders, (and) creates a special pathway that puts those who broke our immigration laws at an advantage over those who chose to do things the right way and come here legally,” Rubio said. “It would actually make our immigration problems worse.”
Illegals came here in violation of the law and we are not only rewarding them, we are encouraging more of them to come over.
