No Deal - Obama: No Border Security Before Path to Citizenship
Breitbart ^ | 1/29/13 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 01/29/2013 10:07:29 AM PST by Nachum

President Barack Obama is set to reject the key compromise at the heart of a bipartisan deal on immigration reform announced by eight Senators yesterday. The president, who will deliver an address later today in Las Vegas, NV outlining his own immigration ideas, is reported to oppose linking a “path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants, a Democrat demand, to stronger law enforcement and better border security, a Republican demand.

The president will apparently argue that the administration has met reasonable goals on enforcing current immigration legislation, and that additional security will merely create new obstacles to legalizing the roughly 12 million illegal immigrants thought to be living in the United States. The federal government accelerated deportations in the first years of the Obama presidency, and sent new personnel to patrol the southwestern border.

However, starting last year, the Obama administration declined to enforce existing law regarding the so-called “Dreamers”--immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children. The election-year move drew praise from Hispanic groups but preempted congressional legislation, and brought criticism from proponents of immigration reform, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who objected to the president’s clear circumvention of Congress.

Obama want’s a path to amnesty AND leave the border open.
So, instead of 12 million it will be 16 million!

Why is this “president” even trying to maintain the farce that he cares about proposed legislation? He’ll just continue to enforce or not enforce the laws that he wishes.

Agreed. We already are a lawless nation. They pick and choose what laws they care to enforce, if at all, how to interpret those laws, and which ones to ignore or outright defy.

Obama is obviously the real Osama bin Laden and he wants his Muslim people to enter and take over the U.S.

Exactly. This is all kabuki theater to make us think that this is really a tough bill that represents conservative principles.

He’s got his orders. His goal is 2014. He has to have in place all those voters for the Democrats by then.

Works for me. He won’t be there forever. Let him overplay his hand. At some point we get the white House again and he can watch all his illegal family members living here get deported.

Obama went to Vegas because most of the gaming industry and hotels use Illegal Alien labor....and the SEIU has a lot of influence in Vegas

(Note that the GOP Rinos and the SEIU agree on Illegal Alien Amnesty...go back to 2007 & see the photos of McCain with SEIU leaders)

Obama is against Deportation of Illegals because he would be in the front of the line of those deported. I wonder what the legal status of his security forces will be in some foreign land.

Amazing. First of all, let me say that I thought the Senate bill wasn’t too bad; there were some things I would have liked to see that weren’t there, but you can’t have everything, and the bill was at least the product of a deliberative process.

But Obama doesn’t even want to let the Dems in the legislature do their job. I’d think that even some of them would be upset with his high-handed, unconstitutional behavior, but personally, I think a lot of them are scared of him.

It’s all about Obama. I hope he overreaches so badly that his fall is heard round the world.

RE :”Exactly. This is all kabuki theater to make us think that this is really a tough bill that represents conservative principles.
Brer Obama: “Oh, no, Brer Congress!! Don’ throw me in dat brier patch!”

Or at least that Republicans will claim to score a win with the Rub/McCain/Schumer bill to Obama. And many are starving for anything they can call a win like a hungry squirrel in a Moscow (winter) who sees a plastic acorn.

But in the end regardless of what gets passed Obama will get all the credit for the bill from Hispanics, in fact even more because he is outbidding them on amnesty.

Want a win?? ...then tell Dems 'no path to citizenship(voting)' for illegals. That would be the poison pill for Dems.

..every time something big happens in this country he is AWOL.
This time I think he wants the Amnesty snafu to fail so he can “rush” back to DC to save it.

So, instead of 12 million it will be 16 million!

Isn't it odd how that number never changes? In spite of the thousands that illegally cross our border daily we have had 12 million illegals here since at least 2003.

This is an opportunity, not a problem. Pass a border security first bill in the House with whatever naturalization package we devise being contingent on serious border control. Pass it tomorrow and then hand tough in conference. Let the Senate dems spend the next two years voting against border control.

All this is noise. Go back and read news reports about what led up to the 1986 amnesty. Congress convinced Reagan that they would secure the border in exchange for that amnesty. He believed them because some perfectly respectable Republicans were telling him the same thing the Dems were telling him. He made the mistake of believing they were men of honor. He signed the bill but the rest of it never happened. They lied to his face and laughed about it. Ted Kennedy was part of it. Fool me once .... They are doing the same thing this time, only now it's morons like McCain providing the assurances. It is all lies. They have no intention of securing the border.

In place of amnesty, "We used the word 'legalization,' " former Wyoming Sen. Alan K. Simpson tells NPR's Guy Raz. "And everybody fell asleep lightly for a while, and we were able to do legalization."

The amazing thing is that we have people like Obama
who say that they can’t find and deport 12 million people so we must give them citizenship but we can register and
confiscate 300 million guns.
