Posted on 04/09/2009 2:30:23 PM PDT by DrGop0821
President Obama is crazy. He is radical, arrogant, dangerous and dishonest. Amnesty for 12 Million people? That's his solution to immigration?
This a power grab; pure and simple. If Obama were truly concerned about immigration reform, why don't we start with securing our borders.
But he doesn't truly care about our national security, the economy or anything else that our President should be focused on. His lone motivation is for his radical Obumunist Agenda is to establish a Socialist State and make it next to impossible for Republicans to stop it.
Team "O" will do everything it can to buy votes. This "amnesty" crap is more of the same.
The Unconstitutional White House effort to create a permanent voting majority by allowing Rahm Emanuel to oversee the 2010 census is now irrelevant.
While you were sleeping, Team "O" took over America.
ACORN is the largest radical Leftist group in America today.
ACORN thinks Americans have a Constitutional right to own a home, supports illegally breaking into homes , pressures Blue-Dog Democrats to back radical legislation and generally acts like above-the-law criminals.
ACORN was officially tapped as a Census partner in February and the CRAPulus Spending "Stimulus" Bill contains over $4 Billion for "neighborhood stabilization", i.e. community organizations like ACORN.
Mercury News reports:
While acknowledging that the recession makes the political battle more difficult, President Barack Obama plans to begin addressing America's immigration system this year, including looking for a path for illegal immigrants to become legal, a senior administration official said Wednesday.
Obama will frame the new effort likely to rouse passions on all sides of the highly divisive issue as "policy reform that controls immigration and makes it an orderly system," said the official, Cecilia Munoz, deputy assistant to the president and director of intergovernmental affairs in the White House.
Obama plans to speak publicly about the issue in May, administration officials said, and over the summer he will convene working groups, including lawmakers from both parties and a range of immigration organizations, to begin discussing possible legislation for as early as this fall.
Some White House officials said immigration would not take precedence over the health care and energy proposals that Obama has identified as priorities. But the timetable is consistent with pledges that Obama made to Latino groups in last year's campaign.
He said then that comprehensive immigration legislation, including a plan to make legal status possible for an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, would be a priority in his first year in office. Latino voters turned out strongly for Obama in the election.
"He intends to start the debate this year," Munoz said.
But with the economy seriously ailing, advocates on different sides of the debate said immigration could become a polarizing issue for Obama in a year when he has many other major battles to fight.
Opponents, mainly Republicans, say they will seek to mobilize popular outrage against any effort to legalize unauthorized immigrant workers while so many Americans are out of jobs.
Democratic legislative aides said opening a full-fledged debate this year on immigration, particularly with health care as a looming priority, could weigh down the president's domestic agenda.
The White House is calculating that public support for fixing the immigration system, which is widely acknowledged to be broken, will outweigh opposition from voters who argue that immigrants take jobs from Americans. A groundswell among voters opposed to legal status for illegal immigrants led to the defeat in 2007 of a bipartisan immigration bill that was strongly supported by President George W. Bush.
Administration officials said Obama's plan would not add new workers to the American work force, but that it would recognize millions of illegal immigrants who have already been working in the United States.
Opponents of legalization legislation were incredulous at the idea that Obama would take on immigration when economic pain for Americans is so widespread.
"It just doesn't seem rational that any political leader would say, let's give millions of foreign workers permanent access to U.S. jobs when we have millions of Americans looking for jobs," said Roy Beck, executive director of NumbersUSA, a group that favors reduced immigration. Beck predicted that Obama would face "an explosion" if he proceeded this year.
In broad outlines, officials said, the Obama administration favors legislation that would bring illegal immigrants into the legal system by recognizing that they violated the law, and imposing fines and other penalties to fit the offense. The legislation would seek to prevent future illegal immigration by strengthening border enforcement and cracking down on employers who hire illegal immigrants, while creating a national system for verifying the legal immigration status of new workers.
Many details remained to be debated.
Elections have consequences.
But he doesn’t truly care about our national security, the economy or anything else that our President should be focused on.
He is going to destroy this country...while those who put him in office worship him.
10 Trillion in spending
8 Billion for Acorn, a Democrat operation
12 Million new Socialist voters
5 Tax Cheats named to posts
1 Bow to a Muslim dictator
I’m sure the Libs will be all excited over that ...now their lawn people will be legitimate ....
The next pres. candidate will either be slightly right(the width of hair) of Oslama, or he/she will be portrayed as killer, hater, 'seniors to eat dog food,' 'kids to starve,' 'the earth to implode', 'we're all going to die,' 'right-wing extremist,' that the media will skull bash until gray matter emanates thru their ears.
Nobody in their right mind would vote for a candidate like that and thus we either get Oslama re-elected or GOP Oslama-light.
A bleak future is ahead.
Obama’s not crazy. 12 million future Democrat voters. This country will be over, but the man’s not crazy, just evil.
And clever. He is working to set the stage to win the next election cycle. Then you can be sure that during the next term he will revoke term limits and will set himself as King. Thus King Obama reigns as supreme leader of the world.
And we know what happened to the last king that trampled over AMERICANS rights.
Recall the ‘motor voter’ laws??
Expect the ‘amnesty voter’ laws.
only half /s
Over Michelle's and Hillary's dead bodies he will. They are next in line.
You can bet it is a lot more than 12 million invaders.
Illegal aliens are very legal - back in their home countries. Let them get on line like everyone else.
There are NOT 12 million illegal aliens in the USA.
The actual number is around 30-40 million illegals, but they won’t use the real numbers less it scare the American people into realizing the full extent of the problem.
That 12 million number was first used around 2002 and became the reference number in 2004. It was never verified. Using it now in 2009 means you would have to assume the borders have been securely closed since then. Even the pro-amnesty lobby admits to a minimum of over a million a year are sneaking in.
You will find out the true numbers after amnesty is given to these criminals and they show up to get their paperwork.
The last amnesty under Reagan presumed 1 million illegals for amnesty and near 3 million were processed.
And under current law, once legalized and on the path to citizenship the 12, 20, 30, 40 million illegals will be able to bring in parents, children, siblings, grandparents, and hardship cases. That will make the real numbers of illegals and their associates over 100 million new unassimilated and unAmerican people voting to enforce their socialist statist politics and class divided cultures.
De Toqueville and Jean-Francois Revel wrote expressively on how democracies perish from within. It is happening now.
Ironically, blacks will suffer first and most under the new waves of hispanic aliens given citizenship. If they think that whites are theri enemies now, then, as gang wars across America show, wait until they have to deal with Hispanics wanting their piece of the pie promised them by the Democrats.
It was a great country.
“12 Million new Socialist voters”
This is probably just the numbers for California. The true numbers are probably 25-30 million nationwide. If amnesty passes wait until all their “relatives” are allowed to come here.
It’s a shame...I haven’t seen ANY leadership step forward to oppose this...except Tancredo and he was on MSNBC today. Have you seen anyone else?
