Barack Obama is using illegal immigration and the sympathetic plight of foreigners to make us into a blue, welfare state without borders. How easily Americans have accepted this. How easily he has taken our freedoms away. Our protectors in Congress have allowed it to happen and Americans don’t seem to want to fight for their rights.
Americans are now willing to accept that all good things, even our unalienable rights, come from the government. With amnesty, Obama has taken away Americans’ rights to determine who comes into this country and how they come. Americans can’t even control their wages and must now fork over large portions for Obama’s welfare state, bolstered by his illegal immigrants.
Illegals are not eligible for Obamacare under Obama’s amnesty which means the Obamacare loophole cuts in. The loophole means employers don’t have to pay the $3000 fine for every illegal they hire. Since many illegals compete with minorities for jobs, this doesn’t bode well for the poor and the minorities.
Obama has taken care of the health needs of illegals, however. They will get Medicaid – the “free” healthcare paid for by taxpayers. Also included in Obama’s amnesty are Social Security benefits and many other federal benefits, according to a White House official.
Illegals will be paying taxes which means they will pay FICA and be eligible for Social Security and Medicare. In addition, they will be eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit. Anyone making below a certain salary, gets a “salary” from U.S. taxpayers when they file their claim. They get money back from the federal government for not making enough money.
Since illegals are poor and uneducated overall, and since many make their money off the books, it’s unlikely they will make enough money.
Federal law says that people who pay the taxes and are deemed “lawfully present in the United States” can collect benefits under those programs when they become eligible. They may also receive survivor and disability benefits.
“If they pay in, they can draw,” White House spokesman Shawn Turner notified The Washington Post by email.
They will not be eligible for student financial aid, food stamps or housing subsidies but how long before the Democrats insist we not be so cruel and demand we stop treating them like second class citizens?
Social Security and Medicare were in trouble before this event. Temporarily, it will help having all these illegals but that is only until they are old enough to collect.
Obama won’t legalize 5 million, he’ll keep going. They will all be legalized. It’s unlikely it’s only 11 million.
Illegal immigrants continue to pour in. No one will be deported except for the worst of the worst, if we’re lucky.
Obama’s amnesty is inviting rampant illegal immigration which appears to be what he wants. It certainly seems to be helping his goal of one-party rule.
Several governors are threatening to sue. Among them is Greg Abbott. His suit could come within the next two weeks.
Abbot said in a presser that “The president must follow the law just like everyone else.”
Obama’s order could affect as many as 533,000 undocumented immigrants in Texas, about 40 percent of the state’s population. Another 92,000 reside with children who are not citizens but could be in the country legally.
That will turn Texas blue.
Obama has erased our borders and how easily he has done it.
Illegals say they just want a better life. Doesn’t everyone in the world who is trying to come here legally? The problem is they want it at the expense of citizens and are coming in as a “protected class”. They are provably taking jobs from Americans and 57% of them have been taking taxpayer benefits such as food stamps.
We are headed for a one-party welfare state. That’s Communism folks or is you want to use a more acceptable PC term – it’s American Socialism.
We send our military to fight for our freedoms while we fritter them away here at home.
