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.

"those 300,000 illegals will also become eligible for “work permits“."

Piker! Ronald Reagan gave REAL amnesty to TEN TIMES than number in '86.

Ironically, I bet the kids of those people both probably voted for Kerry and Obama, but many are probably against this amnesty.

I did hear on the news several months ago that illegals are actually doing better job-wise than average American citizens.

How could this benefit Obama?

1) He thinks they will now pay taxes and it will cure the debt crisis.

2) He will find a way to recognize their employment so that next month report shows "Obama added 300,000 jobs to the economy".

"scared"? Are you smoking crack? I want the Republicans to be smart and not allow the country to be destroyed or stolen by the Democrats. I'd rather have the hispanic vote with us than against us.

You go strap on your manhood and walk into this trap. Let us know how it works out.

Reagan's amnesty was supposed to be for 1.5 million. Of course 25 years later we now know it turned out to be amnesty for alot more than that.

Which is why the 300k figure was just a meaningless number pulled out of Obama's skrawny arse. Tens of millions will be eligible.

Yup. my point in a nutshell. A paralegal could prove that with little difficulty. The case to impeach him is easy to make, yet the Repubs AND dems are thusfar too cowardly. I think that the Dems will end up doing it over backlash fears as another poster a ways back used to say.

Either way, gotta happen. We’ll probably never see 2012 as a nation at this rate unless someone grows a pair soon IMO.

Just thought of something. Obama is talking about extending unemployment beyond 99 weeks. The illegals were starting to go home when they ran our of jobs and unemployment payments. Now, Obama, with out tax money, will be paying them to stay longer.

This corrupt Marxist is really starting to piss me off!

I believe the message Obama is sending is that you can legally pick and choose which laws you’d like to obey now, and disregard the other pesky little laws that might stand in the way of democrats building new voter bases. All the rest of us can do is just sit here and DREAM about it... Good job Barry!!!

You have a very good idea. I suggest we join up with Alan Keyes on this issue. He seems to have a lot of info on this man. There are others too. One mistake we should stop comitting is to ignore the message because we don't like the messenger. I listen to all... whether it be Dick Morris or Alan Keyes. Even when Bill Clinton went on national TV and said America needs to extend the Bush tax cuts. We must stop destroying the messenger when they say things to our advantage. We need to destroy the message when it's bad.

Great Video: Alan Keyes Rightly Calls Obama A Radical Communist!

He doesn't have the authority to do this.

But then, he doesn't care what the 75% of the public opposing this thinks. He needs that 70% of Hispanic "voters" who are Democrats to get to the polls or he's toast.

Reagan signed Simpson Mazolli into law for the same reason he signed the TEFRA tax increases - he was promised something solid in exchange for his compromise.

Reagan was supposed to finally obtain real border security in exchange for amnesty for 1.5 milion illegal aliens.

The democrats accepted the amnesty but renegged on the border security part, just like they accepted the 1 dollar in tax increases but renegged on the 3 dollars in specnding cuts which was their part of the TEFRA bargain.

Reagan's ONLY flaw was he trusted democrats to behave honorably. They are scum and need to be squashed like bugs.

Yes, Reagan was played for a sap by the democraps, another one of those we will close the boarder after this one.

but with Perry's open boarder position the country will be a full out broke socialist utopia in twenty years.

Piker! Ronald Reagan gave REAL amnesty to TEN TIMES than number in '86.

In 1986 a bill was crafted by the United States Congress which contained many elements including border security which were later ignored. It was a load of crap but it was handled legally.

The Congress wouldn't pass amnesty legislation Obama wanted so he crafts an EO focusing just on amnesty and unilaterally instructs government officials to disobey the law. There's a difference.

"Obama Amnesty Begins: Halts Deportations for 300,000 Illegal Aliens; Offers ‘Work Permits’"

Signs of incipient dictatorship:

A 'leadership' that is determined to get its way
Proxies go to work on the streets
Opposition is intimidated and stifled
Laws are broken - nothing is done. This is an example of one of these
Law abiding citizens who try to resist these pressure are obstructed.

I’m not against joining together with anyone by default, but this is a doable deal by simply spreading the word to everyone via the net and word of mouth. A grassroots campaign for supposed ‘grassroots candidates’ Tell your contacts to hop on their supported candidates and make this an election issue. Like I said, they will provide the pressure because it’s something to nail Obama on, a rallying point for the right and all Americans hammered by the marxist fool and Boehner/GOP and the Dems that aren’t suicidal get pushed into doing the job or face a trouncing on election day.

Win win all around. Just spread the word and things WILL happen. Instead of us joining these other groups as usual, let them join US. Tea Party patriotism at it’s finest.

The executive branch is the supposed to be the enforcer of our nation’s laws. If Obama refuses to enforce this nation’s laws and defies our legislativ­e mandates, there is no clearer case for impeachmen­t.

I suppose we could forward the link to our congressmen and women, if we know their e-mail or physical addresses.

It can’t hurt to try something rather than do nothing and
be led like sheep to the slaughter.

Of course, getting them to read and/or to respond to it is
yet another thing.
