Skip to comments.President Obama changing the rules on illegal immigration (O'Reilly: "...the new policy is humane"
Posted on 06/16/2012 11:44:08 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist
O'Reilly: "... How can you blame kids when they're dragged to the USA from wherever? If you're a fair person you can't. It's not the childs fault immigration laws are broken, it's the parents who did it; thus the new policy is humane..."

I wonder if Romney will converge with Rubio who said that the new policy is a welcome change, in addition to the other things that Rubio announced concerning this.
This video is not the big one at the top. It is just below it - second one to the right.
Tell an unemployed person ineligible for Unemployment benefits it’s humane.
Sorry Billy, they weren’t “dragged” here. Grow up.
O’Reilly is a racist for thinking that being returned to Mexico is a bad thing or punishment of some kind.
I was channel surfing last night, waiting for the wife to come in from watering the plants. She wanted to watch Undercover Boss. I settled for O’Reilly (whom I haven’t watched in a couple years), for lack of anything else. Big mistake. He had Lou Dobbs on, and was giving this meme. I turned off the TV. That’s the last time I’ll entertain going to his show.
As for Romney, we’ll have to see, but I wouldn’t put it past him, unless he sees sufficient fallout to ward him off.
I expect Romney's reaction to be muted unless or until he has an alternative to offer.
Bill works from a false premise. The immigration laws are not broken. They are unenforced. He needs to explain in detail why they would be ‘broken’ when they are unused.
He is of course, an agendist, not a journalist.
If you read the construct framework of Obamas conditions, you will find: Under 30, high school dipoma/GED or military, in this country for 5 years, lawful....that is effing it!
Were not talking children here, nor are we talking about those brought here with their parents- UNDER 30!.....
GED a problem? Id bet my ass there will be GED diploma mills popping in every Mexican Tijuana sidestreet of America! (Dont act like you dont know they are there - every city in this country).
Lawful? Does anyone actually think the DOJ, who will administer this treason, is gonna check the NCIC or take finger prints? Dont count on it one iota!
We are talking probably TENS OF MILLIONS, here not 800,000 or a million. This country is effed if it doesnt throw that bastard out in November and get its sanity back.
O’Reilly the sexual harasser should think first.
o’really hasn’t thought past his nose on this. Let the kids stay=let their parents stay. It’s a backdoor amnesty for any illegal with a kid.
It isn’t 800,000 who receive amnsty, it’s millions.
Whether it is humane or not humane or good policy or not - it doesn’t matter. That is a matter for congressional hearings and legislation to sort out and decide what our laws are. Congress’s role is to write legislation. A president can’t just decree legislation. It is unconstitutional.
when O’Really said Obama’s move was “ Brilliant “ I had to change the channel , also sounded like he had a muzzle on poor Lou Dobbs
I too watched O’reill last night, thus why I posted this.
I was curious what people here would think about this video.
And I also believe that we shouldn’t put it past Romney to do just about anything, and pivot/flip-flop on his stance on illegal immigartion that he took during the primary cycle.
Should say “O’Reilly.”
Political talk shows are nothing but political propaganda all regulated by corruptgov.
Other than live coverage of an event, TV is absolutely useless.
Exactly what I was thinking.
Well, I won’t watch the video because I refuse to give POS O’really a hit. I don’t give a hoot what that arrogant a$$ thinks.
As for Romney, it doesn’t really matter what he says, does or thinks, because his word is worthless.
Now for Obama... as far as I am concerned he has committed treason, AGAIN. But, in todays America, treason is no longer an actionable crime.
It would be “humane” to allow those in war-torn Syria, starving Ethiopians or oppressed Cubans to come here. Not smart. Not legal. Not fair. But Mexicans...this is for votes.
Obama is doing this for purely political reasons. O’Reilly is a HUGE moron for not seeing this.
Obama is bypassing the Constitution, a horrible precident to set. O’Reilly is an idiot for not seeing this.
Obama is adding millions of people to the labor market where there aren’t enough jobs. Is that “humane” to the unemployed in America?
These illegals will be paid wages that are way below market. Essentially a form of SLAVERY. Is slavery humane Mr. O’Reilly?
So is '30' the new '26' for children? (Obamacare=26-parents insurance)
What about the illegal children that are 30 and 2 months? Barry is such a hater/.
I thought military service was an avenue to citizenship - which I'm in agreement.
Exactly! It's not WHAT Obama did (though it was not a good thing either) but HOW he did it that's the problem.
This from the creme de crop at FoX News?
Is humane lowering the standard of living for all a noble cause?
That way he appeals to all of the people some of the time.
BOR has no core values, other than audience numbers.
If Romney was smart he should say this may be a reasonable policy BUT it must be duly passed by Congress as our Constitution requires not implemented by executive fiat.
O'Reilly doesn't seem to care about the removal of Congress from the legislative process.
O'Reilly might as well be a marxist Democrat, for all he's worth.
Not to mention that many of these illegals will have no ID. They can claim to be any age they want - as long as it’s thirty or under.
In other words, he is a talented fraud and I only listen to him to keep up with the bull crap his many fans are accepting—valuable political intelligence as it were.
Could not have said it better.
Maybe it’s “humane” once our borders are secure... until then it’s just incentive for everyone to race here seeking the same treatment.
“Amnesty” didn’t work in ‘86 ... what’s different now?
Also ... HOW do we graduate so many from public schools and let them into the military when they are ILLEGAL in the first place?
O’Really isn’t really one of us. It’s a real hoot to watch the Left slam Fox, when guys like O’Really essentially back them much of the time.
O'Reilly's schtick is to play the role of the Oh-So-Reasonable middle-of-the-roader. He likes to set up a straw man and then bravely knock it down.
Blame isn't the issue.
No need to assign blame to the "kids" (if a 30 year old can still be considered a kid).
The blame for bringing the "kids" here belongs to the parents, but that's a moot point.
The "kids" (and the parents) have had a nice free ride in the USA on the backs of legal citizens.
Now it is time for them to leave our country and go back to their country.
If they want to re-enter the USA there is a legal process to do that already in place.
Let them take a number and go to the end of the line.
Let me get this straight.
I’m a racist because I want Hispanics to live by the same immigration rules that Australians, Europeans, Asians, and Africans live by.
The Left and it’s sympathizers here are not racists because they want special preferential treatment for illegal alien Hispanics.
All O’Reilly cares about it ratings.
He manipulates us all.
On my local comment sites the liberals all scream "Faux News!" and I agree with them...shoots the wind out of their sails :>)
LOL, good one...
FoxNews is a lost cause...FoxBusiness is the only holdout that’s worth watching.
Its only “humane” if you’re a supporter of a certain democratic presidential candidate who is desperate to lock up this voting bloc.
Its all about power.
If barry thought he could win by launching these people back over the fence with a giant catapult he’d be there, in front of the TV cameras, pulling the lever himself.
What would have been humane would have been enforcing our nations borders and not allowing these parents to illegally drag their kids across our border. So the humane part of the action is already long gone. All the feds are looking for now is justification for their inhumane border enforcement.
It could also be that he's trying to earn himself another interview with barky.
The “Great Teacher From Long Island”, sycophantically utterred the rationale behind the words “anchor baby”!
I am a Nativist, and do not agree with O’Reilly.
As for blowhard Bill O'Reilly and his blathering about how 'humane' this act is, all I can say is, once you look into the ramifications, it simply demonstrates that America is soon going to humanely 'compassionate' itself into a third-world hellhole, which is exactly what Obama and the left think we should be (they'll be comfortably on top, of course, dictating to the huddled masses). Screw them.
Starve them out or deport them, all of the illegals!
Being humane is for suckers!
I watch part of FoxBusiness. Did you see FoxNews business discussion this morning? More than half the idiots were praising Obama’s illegal immigration move.
Then bring their parents up on child abuse charges.
Anc there is a reason it would be inhumane to return people to THEIR OWN COUNTRY? I swear we act like these pdople are imprisoned here. It’s not our fault, Bill.
If Dems really care about Mexicans then they should help them clean up their sh!thole of a country and make it free. Like the old west. It’s time to shoot on sight and hang the criminals so that freedom seaking people can build a nation.
BUT NOOOO, the Democrat party of today is now the Socialist party and chaos is their friend.
Liberating North Korea would also be humane
So forget the process of law- all it takes is an executive order from obama?
(speaking of humane, how about stopping 2/3 trimester abortion for the convenience of the mother?)
Then get back to work, White Boy. We need your tax money.
I haven’t watched BOR in over 3 years and it took only a few minutes for me to remember why. Guess it will be another 3 years plus before I watch him again.
O’Unreality is a self-absorbed, self-important, narcissistic SCHLUB. Which explains why he covers for Obozo. Birds of a feather and all that...
With the exception of my 6th great grandfather, John Carpenter (a neighbor, close associate, friend and revolutionary brother in arms of one George Washington) in my paternal grandmother Robinsons family, my other English and German ancestors waited in sometimes years long lines, got on a hot, crowded, rickety ship, crossed the Atlantic and arrived at Ellis Island.
My wife’s English and Irish ancestors also waited in sometimes years long lines, got on a hot, crowded, rickety ship, crossed the Atlantic and arrived at Ellis Island.
There they were deloused, given a cursory medical exam, interrogated, their immigration papers checked and, with just what they were able to carry, took the ferry to the mainland to begin their lives as “Americans.” Those who did not have a complete grasp of English soon undertook formal and informal of the native language and the rest, as they say, is history.
That’s how it USED TO BE DONE.
The 14th Amendment, INTENDED by the drafters to ONLY grant citizenship to emancipated slaves by overturning the Dred Scott decision, has been tortured beyond recognition by the radical left to also include so-called “anchor babies” born to Latinas who stroll across the border to download junior HERE to bypass all the normal immigration processes described above. As an intern in a San Diego ER, my late niece caught many of those babies as part of her OB/GYN training.
By executive fiat, today Obama just took the first step to COMPLETELY open our borders (trust me, it is the first step only!) His action makes FOOLS of those who, like our great-great grandparents, played by the rules. It also makes fools of those waiting in those overseas lines to come here THE RIGHT WAY!!!
A wag declared that a nation without borders is NOT A NATION!!
A Latino “immigration lawyer” on FNN this morning said that if Congress doesn’t like it, they can change the law. He went on to say “THEY DON’T HAVE THE GUTS.” Sadly, he’s right. But if these clowns on Jenkins’ Hill think those latinos (legal and illegal) are going to vote for the GOP, they should be careful to not let their minds wander: They’re too small to be out alone.
Not that it would do any good, I called my congresscritters’ (202-224-3121) this morning to ask when they plan to offer Articles of Impeachment for this, the Law of the Seas Treaty, the activities of Holder, et al, the waste of taxpayer bucks on the green jobs idiocy, etc., etc. I’ll spare you the entire list as it runs to a few hundred pages. If impeachment is not their plan, I asked them to have the decency to RESIGN as the first branch of this government is clearly no longer needed and Obama could use the bucks saved to help buy the coming “election” or perhaps resume his taxpayer funded World Tour.
Bottom line? If you are STILL unconvinced that this guy is a clear and present danger to YOUR way of life, you probably live in a refrigerator crate behind a vacant warehouse. And if that is NOT your current living condition, re-elect this guy and it shortly will be.
