Obama Will Say We “Cannot Have” Immigration Laws Passed “by Each State” in Speech Tomorrow – Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | June 30, 2010 | Brian

Posted on 06/30/2010 2:54:07 PM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs saying that President Obama will use a speech on Thursday to push for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Gibbs said Obama will “reiterate” that we “cannot have immigration reform passed individually by each state through a patchwork of laws.”

Gibbs said Obama will also emphasize that it will take “Republican support” to get an Immigration Bill passed, which he said, “has certainly been there in the past.”

The Arizona anti-Illegal Immigration Law really has the Obama crew rattled. They are afraid other states are soon to follow suit, and they want to do something to stop it from happening. But it’s hard to say whether Obama is really ready to go all out to get something passed, or whether he is just window-dressing to make the Latino voters not be so upset with him for not getting some kind of amnesty bill passed.

The FedGov needs to enforce the laws now on the books. However the Regime has another agenda. More Democrat voters.

Excuse me Obamie... but have you heard of States Rights? Federal Government has failed on the illegal immigration issue on a massive scale. States have a right to protect their borders. The U.S. is not a single patch of land.

When he removes the fence from around the White House and stops demanding identification of those who attend his ‘town hall’ meetings then I will agree with him on border reform.

Till then........I’m not buying his dog food.

So much for the “laser-like” focus on “Recovery Summer”, eh Barry? How did you like the ADP jobs report and the housing data?

This clod knows the only chance he has to keep his job is to flood the polls with illegal aliens, and amnesty is the quickest way for him to do it.

What "patchwork" of laws?
AZ's new law merely enforces existing federal law. If other states did the same, their laws would do the same.

A nation without a controlled border is exactly like a body without any skin....invasions of all types occur. The invasions we are experiencing are deliberately intended by this and the past administrations, involving actions by both political parties to our national detriment. Arizona, in self-defense, is trying to form a scab for protection and the current Administration is picking at it with all the force it has.

The borders, if they are ever enforced, will be to keep something in, apparently. Consider the concept of the North American Union...it would be ALL coastline except for a very narrow land border as currently exists at Mexicos’ extreme South, and which is heavily defended and enforced.

Funny, I thought the States reserved for themselves all powers not explicitly granted to the Federal Govt. in the Constitution. By that reasoning, the States should in fact be setting their own laws. But then, when has the current POTUS been concerned with the US Constitution, other than to trample on it?

Comprehensive Immigration Reform is Leftspeak for granting citizenship and democrat party membership along with an absentee ballot to the 10 million or so of illegals.

Someone has warned him to go for bipartisan societal suicide first, and if that does not work, issue an executive order.

The boot is on the neck of America.

Nobody wants to have a patchwork of state immigration laws. The problem is the Fed isn't fulfilling their constitutional duty.

Will he also announce his recent submission of national sovereignty to Mexican drug cartels?

Posting signs like these has legal implications that go straight to the heart of American sovereignty. 0baMao has asserted that southern Arizona has been ceded to Mexico.

I am going to pray against this speech. The situation feels like it’s spiraling out of control. The voters of this country turned the top office over to a sick, inexperienced far left Marxist ideologue who hates everything the US has traditionally stood for. Every time it seems like Obama has reached a new low [Kagan] he goes lower still. My nerves are fraying. I am going to pray that this speech is an epic FAIL. Like the song says, ‘God specializes in things thought impossible; He does the things others cannot do.’ Dear God, deliver us from this man and the evil he is working. Amen.

What is this “cannot have” crap coming from the president of my country? I am sick of his talk. Who does he think he is? This is not a street corner in Chicago, it was once the greatest nation on earth and now Obama has reduced it to a street corner. What an asshat.

I say we cannot have another year of his presidency! Impeach the commie mooslim bastard.

If he were to say “We cannot have firearms laws passed by every state or city”, Obama might have at least a little credibility.

I really am actually sort of wary of you good folks who try to link him with “Chicago Thugs”. No self respecting “Chicago Thug” would dress like Pee Wee Herman in public. He may rave on about his “black half” and make snide comments about his “white half”, but why didn’t someone pull the clown aside and show him how to dress his sorry ass? He looks foolish....

Likewise his ol’lady dresses up more like a typical patient at a mental health facility picnic....

I hear you. It’s just that for me, I’m starting to feel like a punching bag. Every time I absorb one of Obama’s body blows, he’s ready with a newer, harder one. I think his addiction/dysfunction is getting the upper hand of him, and we’re along for the trainwreck. That, or his need for revenge against his low poll numbers has pulled out all the stops, and until he hits a brick wall, the damage is just going to steadily intensify. :(

Off topic. I just got off the phone with a friend who asked me if I knew of anybody who might have a good understanding of the traditions behind the Kabbalah. I said I might. He said he would email me a specific question. I doubt I’ll get it for a day or two. If and when he writes, would it be all right to run the question by you? You’ve been such a help in the past, I thought it would be okay to ask. :)

That is what was apparent from the the first month in office on. As I kept a list of the 'full court press' this administration made on its agenda, it became very clear that they wanted to attack us on all fronts on day one. A sort of 'blitzkreig'. Attack attack attack and never let up. Crisis after crisis, spending ever more borrowed money, and destroying the very framework of our country. This is war my friend. :(

As for Kabballah, it is an extraordinarily difficult subject. I'll do my best for you.

Well you were way ahead of me when it comes to figuring out Obama’s M.O. I had myself believing for a while that his incompetence would (1) hamstring his agenda, and (2) so turn off voters that his polls would sink far faster than they did. Lately, though, your word, ‘blitzkrieg’, is the only one that works. All the Dem pollsters and strategists are running around saying November will be a bloodbath, and the Dem pols led by Obama just don’t seem to care. To borrow a word from Obama, it is unprecedented.

Fortunately, without Research 2000 propping them up, Obama’s poll #s seem to be on a steeper slide. I’m going to believe this roll of his can’t sustain indefinitely. November is too long to wait; I’m praying for a meltdown (or similar) well before then.

Re: the Kabbalah. You are just too good! This friend of mine doesn’t always follow through. If he does, I will be forever indebted for any insight you can offer. :)
