Obama Amnesty Begins: Halts Deportations for 300,000 Illegal Aliens; Offers ‘Work Permits’
Stand With Arizona ^ | August 18, 2011 | John Hill--Stand With Arizona

Posted on 08/18/2011 3:42:59 PM PDT by LUV W

The Obama Administration today announced a virtual amnesty-by-decree for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, whose deportations will be “indefinitely delayed”. In addition, Obama finally announced a jobs program – but for ILLEGAL ALIENS, not citizens – as those 300,000 illegals will also become eligible for “work permits“.

This action represents an administrative end-run around Congress, which twice rejected the ‘DREAM Act’ in 2010. As disgraceful as is this usurpation of Congressional authority, this announcement is even worse than is being reported.

300,000 Illegal Aliens; Offers ‘Work Permits’,

Remind me again, what were the most recent unemployment numbers???

For the love of God, there are people out there who haven't had a job in two years looking for work.

This is grounds for impeachment, allowing invaders to stay and steal jobs from citizens, rape, steal and deal illegal drugs.

We have been conquered from within.

I guess this is the jobs program Obama has been coyly alluding to: jobs for illegal aliens that is. Remember, every illegal alien granted a work permit when caught illegally entering the U.S. is one more worker competing for jobs with actual citizens.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him announce a plan where if they will work for 12 months he'll let them vote...because that is where his "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" will lead.

Yep. This cannot be viewed as good for the unemployment situation. He just keep digging his hole bigger and bigger.

If these people can’t get a job do they get unemployment benefits or welfare?

Last time they did polls, don’t 80% of Americans strongly oppose illegal immigration?

Isn’t this political suicide for Obama? I think so.

My Dream job would be to take a random group of 12 Freepers to Washington and be benevolent dictators and get the country back on track. I think it would take about 3 months and then we could go home after giving power back to some conservative that we agreed on.

Obama is now in direct defiance of the law and needs to be arrested. Unfortunately, there is no one to do it. He is moving to rule by decree. Who's to say that he won't somehow make the illegals eligible to vote in 2012? Once the law is what the maximum leader says it is, the whole system of laws and checks and balances breaks down.

I think Oboma has mental problems. I don't think he's living in the same world as the rest of us humans. I think he lives in some kind of fantasy world in his head. I think we have a very dangerous, very sick man in our White House.

This is shameful to grant amnesty to these people- most of which are uneducated criminals who will rob, rape and further burden our welfare system, while Americans are hurting from job loss.

Will these ‘work permits’ come with a means of deducting TAXES from the paychecks of these intruders, or will they just join the ranks of the 47% who don’t pay taxes?

This is particularly insidious because it is like the whole ‘gay marriage’ nightmare. Massachusetts imposed it via court on its citizens, therefore allowing the left to make the “See? We’ve had it for x years and the world didn’t end” argument (wrong as it is, it may sway mushheads, and there are a lot out there as Obama’s approval ratings indicate). They will make the same argument here and move for MASS AMNESTY.

My Democrat neighbors told me they are never voting Democrat again after what he did to them on Obamacare as seniors and then they saw how he was suing Arizona over the illegals and they are really ticked. He has screwed himself at every turn. No wonder he is looking for votes through illegals. He is toast with most Americans.

I hope the Republicans don’t jump on it. It smells like sucker bait to me. If this report is true, its a trap to make sure no hispanic vote goes to the GOP. They should make it known and then shut up.

Hate to say I told you so but one of my mantras of the week to those who feel that some of our GOP candidates especially are no better than Obama on immigration and one (a Romneybot) actually said he trusted Obama more with immigration than Perry:

All this week

tsowellfan has been saying:

The President we have NOW shoved Obamacare down the throats of the American people. And that's not all he's done. The question should NOT be whether Obama, Perry or Palin will seek to pass Immigration Reform. The REAL question is who do you trust more with the constitutional process required to actually pass "Immigration Reform"?

Would you really trust Obama, who has a history of ignoring the Constitution?

Well, I know who I do NOT trust. I can only imagine a second term Obama Presidency... much bolder... I can easily see him signing an executive order for The Dream Act and bypassing Congress. He's done it before.

Perhaps Obama was reading the Romneybot postings and got a false sense of support with his amnesty since the republicans were going to vote for him anyways?

He is trying to force violence and/or a white riot. There is no other explanation. He has no intention of being reelected. He wants rioting, marshal law and the power it would give him to set aside this ‘messy democracy.

Someone better dust off the 25th Amendment and prepare to use it quick.
