Skip to comments.Obama's Immigration Ploy Is Meant To Help Obama, Not The Nation
Posted on 06/18/2012 4:27:01 PM PDT by Kaslin
President Obama's latest political ploy granting new "rights" out of thin air, by executive order, to illegal immigrants who claim that they were brought into the country when they were children is all too typical of his short-run approach to the country's long-run problems.
Whatever the merits or demerits of the Obama immigration policy, his executive order is good only as long as he remains president, which may be only a matter of months after this year's election.
People cannot plan their lives on the basis of laws that can suddenly appear, and then suddenly disappear, in less than a year. To come forward today and claim the protection of the Obama executive order is to declare publicly and officially that your parents entered the country illegally. How that may be viewed by some later administration is anybody's guess.
Employers likewise cannot rely on policies that may be here today and gone tomorrow, whether these are temporary tax rates designed to look good at election time or temporary immigration policies that can backfire later if employers get accused of hiring illegal immigrants.
Why hire someone, and invest time and money in training them, if you may be forced to fire them before a year has passed?
Kicking the can down the road is one of the favorite exercises in Washington. But neither in the economy nor in their personal lives can people make plans and commitments on the basis of government policies that suddenly appear and suddenly disappear.

Everything Obummer does, helps Obummer politically and screws the nation.
I really can’t stand this guy...
I despise this arrogant pos and with him every liberal
Whatever the merits or demerits of the Obama immigration policy, his executive order is good only as long as he remains president, which may be only a matter of months after this year’s election.
That is right of course, but does anyone really believe that Romney will cancel this executive order , or the don’t ask,Don’t tell order?
No FRiends, what Obama has done cannot(WILL NOT ) be undone.
It’s about Barry. It’s always about Barry. He could really give a **** about any DREAM ACT.
Well now we just have to wait and see, won't we? You might be surprised
Houston, we have Einstein.
I might not be too.
Well we just have to find out, won’t we? :)
The very people that Mexico needs to put the ‘Go’ back into their national ‘GET UP AND GO’ have got up and gone.....When liberals encourage illegal immigration by their pandering shannigans they draw away the exact people Mexico needs to step up and lead their nation into the creation of a middle class which is the very key to their prosperity and indeed their salvation....
if any liberal thinks illegal immigration into the US is any kind of answer to this mess....he should watch this short crucial enjoyable clip which everyone must see before any rational discussion of the topic takes place....make and expert on this subject.. watch enjoy and remember its points and lessons...I PRESENT THE GREAT ROY BECK, POVERTY AND GUMBALLS...
You have to Elect Romney to find out what’s in him!

“Its always about Barry.”
BJ Clinton did the same thing; came in with a Dem congress, left losing everything (including the White House). Obama lacks Clinton’s appeal to white trash, but he has the same focus on himself (damn the rest of the party). That is probably why Dems are starting to pull back from Obama; they realize he’ll throw them all under the bus to try to keep his job (even if both the House & Senate end up 100% Republican).
Does anyone doubt he would do that?
...and, incidentally, not immigrants.
Republicans MUST understand that "compromise" and "bipartisanship" only means "Do what the Dems want." Nothing more.
Go Tea Party!
Sorry ... that quote came from “Random Thoughts” by Sowell, posted earlier in the day.
But I still like the thought.
Yes, Romney will eventually be forced to say that under his administration the DHS will obey the laws of the land. Maybe this comes in a debate and will kill Obama, because how can Obama justify not obeying the law? This one issue can cook Obama's goose.
