Obama Pleads for Bipartisan Support On Immigration
Newsmax.Com ^ | Tuesday, 27 Apr 2010 06:53 PM

Posted on 04/28/2010 7:05:56 AM PDT by BradtotheBone

President Barack Obama on Tuesday pledged to bring his own party along to reform the nation's broken immigration system, pleading with Republicans to join in as the only realistic hope to solve a politically volatile problem.

Obama also offered fresh, stern criticism of a new Arizona law that allows police to question anyone about their immigration status if they have reason to suspect they are in the country illegally. The president said a comprehensive federal immigration effort is needed to prevent "bad laws" like Arizona's.

"I will bring the majority of Democrats to the table in getting this done," Obama said in response to a question at a town hall in south-central Iowa. "But I've got to have some help from the other side."

Seal the border first.

Once 90% of all entries into the country come through the gate instead of “over the fence”,
then we’ll talk about what to do about those already here.

Get back to me when you’ve accomplished this goal.

Repubs take notice...remember healthcare. You are under no obligation to “get along” with dems.

I wish. Many in the GOP fully and completely support shamnesty for illegals. They didn't call it the McCain-Kennedy Shamnesty act for nothing.

0bama actually has a very strong chance of having both parties in Congress vote for a shamnesty bill.

I'd also like for there to me more enforcement action taken against entities in the USA which hire illegals. They are half of the problem.

Obama always wants support from conservatives. But he never listens to those that can actually solve the problems. What he really means is “I need someone from the other side to to take the blame for this.”

We have over 50 years of immigration laws, we don’t need any NEW laws.

Enforce the ones you have.

“I will bring the majority of Democrats to the table in getting this done,”

That, somehow, does not sound bipartisan....

Sure, we’ll help him; just not with the kind of help he wants! Lets have more states follow Arizona’s lead. Let’s step up enforcement of the laws already on the books. Let’s enforce our borders. Let’s encourage LEGAL immigration and completely shut down those who circumvent or ignore the process.

Perhaps Dear Reader should actually READ the AZ law rather then continue to make such arrogantly ignorant pronouncements about it.

He'll just react by pushing through a bill that grants them all citizenship. Same way he reacted with healthcare. This isn't a guy worried about public opinion.

Then what do we do?

Exactly so.

“We need a new system” is BS. We have a system. Congress makes law, and the executive branch enforces it. So just shut up and do it.

Seal the borders!

Deport ALL illegals!

Pass a tough new immigration law that will severely restrict even legal immigration for Third World countries.

Ban ALL islamic immigration, and find ways to deport as many muslims as possible. islam is not just a religion, but an alien empire bent on world domination.

Support jobs for Americans, and American/Judeo-Christian culture, NOT “multiculturalism” and “open borders”!!!!

Notice no one seems to be running and managing government.

They pass laws against business and people but there is never any accountability, management or control of government. The most expensive government in the history of the world.

Racial Profiling is OK for Obama’s Federal Government Cops

Obama’s police force at Customs and Border currently operates dozens of inland traffic checkpoints which stop EVERY vehicle to check for illegal aliens, drugs and illegal weapons.

I have personally been stopped numerous times and asked for my I.D. and purpose of my trip while travelling from McAllen, Tx to Corpus Christi, Tx on Hwy 281 and Hwy 77. Note that at no time did I ever cross the border into Mexico. I was just in McAllen on business.

They also question everyone in the car and racially “profile” them. Looking “Mexican” and not speaking English are 2 very important clues that my passenger may not be here legally.

It’s time to ask politicians and the media why our local police forces shouldn’t have the same power to set up random checkpoints and stop every vehicle and ask the same questions as Obama’s police force.

Overturn all he does as soon as he is gone. His time is limited. We need to stall, hamper, and obstruct all that he attempts to do. That which he and his like do pass, we must address after the next election cycle.

Isn’t it bureaucRats and/or the state dept that defines legal immigration? Why are they not doing an end-run (or maybe they are) increasing legal immigration? Seems to me they might try and blur the distinction between illegals and legals.

Holder said the federal government may challenge it.

Each day this administration exists, I get a step closer to being a full blown, all out, no holds barred secessionist.

Yeah, he wants help from the other side, all right. Help voting for his bill exactly as he wants it written. He doesn’t do compromising.

He does not play well with others.
