Obama on Illegal Aliens to Illegal Alien: We Don’t Want to Deport Them; 'We Want Them To Succeed’ Monday, March 28, 2011 By Edwin Mora

(CNSNews.com) -- When questioned by an illegal alien student today who showed him a deportation letter, President Barack Obama said he did not want to deport illegal alien students like the one who questioned him, he wanted them to succeed.

The exchange came during a town hall event sponsored by the Spanish-language television network Univision at a Washington, D.C., school. An illegal alien student, who appeared via Skype, asked: “My question for the president is, why [is the government] saying that deportations have stopped or the detention of many students like me, why is it that we are still receiving deportation letters like this one?”

Obama answered, “We have redesigned our enforcement practices under the law to make sure that we’re focusing primarily on criminals, and so our deportation of criminals are up about 70 percent. Our deportation of non-criminals are down, and that’s because we want to focus our resources on those folks who are destructive to the community.

“And for a young person like that young woman that we just spoke to who’s going to school, doing all the right things, we want them to succeed," Obama said.

Why would an illegal alien Kenyan give a damn about American citizens and their rights?

Utter madness.

And even crazier, saying so makes one an extremist.

Breaking the law is doing the right thing? At that they certainly are succeeding.

An illegal alien WITH a deportation letter passed the security clearance to meet with the President of the United States?

Obama is batsh*t crazy.

It’s a slippery slope.

First they enter the country illegally.
Second they steal someone’s identity to obtain “papers”.
Next they do not report cash income (wired back HOME to Mexico) while the apply for welfare services.

How many crimes are they permitted to commit “just to get a job”?

What part of his obligation to uphold the law--about which he swore an oath upon his inauguration--does he believe in and meet with proper performance? Instead, he breaks the law and court judgments right and left, and suborns further lawbreaking in others!

He's way beyond deserving impeachment and removal!

Obama on Illegal Aliens to Illegal Alien: We Don’t Want to Deport Them; 'We Want Them To Succeed’
 
By Obama's definition that would be succeeding in destroying America. Obama is evidently in  agreement with the dangerous activity of colonization by foreign peoples who harbor solid intent to maintain their own culture and don't seek to actively integrate, an activity which has historically diluted and brought about the downfall of nations.

I'm an American citizen, born and raised; a Vietnam vet; and I'm a productive member of society, pay my taxes, and play by the rules, and have my entire life.

So, I want to know what laws I can break, and crimes I can commit, that by breaking or committing I'll not only NOT be punished, but will be rewarded for breaking and committing, as well.

Well, ObaMao, which ones? I'm waiting.

Sad part is that too many GOP agree with Obama and the Hispanic KKK groups on this nonsense

All illegal aliens will be deported...anything less is Illegal Alien Amnesty. Illegal Alien Amnesty is Anti-American Bigotry

This student is question can go “succeed” in the country he left. Allowing him to stay takes away an opportunity from a hard-working American student

“doing all the right things,we want them to succeed” Breaking the law is doing the right thing? At that they certainly are succeeding. - Succeeding YES with our tax dollars.

Just like the government union members, they demand we furnish them all with the perks they "deserve" even if we can't afford the same for ourselves....and elected officials acquiesces to grant them their demands, in exchange for votes!!

Time to shut this cr@# down!

In their country, sure...I’d love for them to succeed there. The birth rate is going down everywhere, so soon this may not be a problem, but unfortunately we might end-up a leftists den of dumb politics soon, though.

I want them to succeed in their quest to become citizens of the United States, renouncing all other allegiances and foreign potentates.

If they don’t want that, then I want them to succeed in their homeland, and get the eff out of mine.

Somehow we’ve gotten to a point where sneaking into this Country is illegal (like speeding) but not criminal (like speeding doesn’t make you a criminal). That needs to change. It won’t change with a traitor pResident willing to exploit the situation for his own well-being - Even if the results, overall, weaken our Country.

From what I’ve seen - voting isn’t going to settle this.

They are ALL criminals and need to be treated as such.

Let Sheriff Joe Arpaio build a very, very large prison in the Arizona desert and let each and every one of them spend 12 months in that prison PRIOR to deportation at the barrel of a gun.

Those who resist should be shot. Dead.

Illegal Immigration problem solved.

You are woefully misinformed.

First of all if this were true the unions would be screaming bloody murder about it and they are not. The existing union guys don't care because they have their teat.

The illegals actually benefit the unions the DO participate in like SEIU and the other service unions.

Second, the unions are raking in union dues off of the illegals and that's all that matters to them.

Third, the socialists want chaos and discord and they know one of the quickest ways to get it is to "legitimize" illegals.

They are quite happy to see the trouble being caused as it furthers their cause.

It is amazing how they set up controls to trace terror money moving in & out of the country, but can’t find a way to tax the millions of under-the-table wages streaming south across our border.

No one should kid themselves, on this issue, Obama is just carrying on the work of GHWB, Slick Willy and GWB, though he hasn’t yet come up with hokey slogans as infuriating as GWB’s.

And I’m not hearing any potential Republican primary candidates taking a strong, pro-enforcement, no amnesty position of this issue.

PLEASE, never let it be said that I ‘stuck’ up for this bunch of clowns BUT the article did say the student asked the question while on ‘Skype’..

This story is kind of reminiscent of the illegal college student that went from the Northeast to Arizona to protest the new AZ laws and when he refused to leave an area, he got arrested then it was discovered he was illegal and was subject to deportation.
Naturally, he cried about this so called injustice.

Sad part is that he gets an audience and probably got to stay.
