Obama's Immigration Plan: Expedite 11 Million Illegal Immigrants to Citizenship
Townhall.com ^ | January 29, 2013 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 01/29/2013 9:26:33 PM PST by Kaslin

President Obama has wrapped up his $1.6 million campaign event immigration reform speech in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Now is the time for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform," Obama said.

Piggybacking off of a bipartisan immigration reform plan presented by eight Senators yesterday, Obama called on Congress to quickly come up with legislation.

"We can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in endless debate," Obama said. "For the first time in years, Republicans and Democrats seem ready to attack this problem together."

Although Obama focused on further enforcement as a top priority for reform, he stressed the need to expedite 11 million illegal immigrants away from the shadows and into American society as citizens, a position bound to put the country into another  post-1986 amnesty situation.

Obama wants to study the fine print of legislation once it is written, but administration officials were quick to say the president objects to linking an earned pathway to citizenship to enforcement or border security triggers, a contingency concept included in the bipartisan “principles” outlined Monday by pro-reform senators who have been dubbed the “immigration eight.” Immigration enforcement goals have already been met by the administration, the officials said, and any new triggers or thresholds set by law would create unnecessary obstacles to those seeking legal status.

Obama warned if Congress fails to enact its own immigration reform, he'll send up his own bill "and insist they vote on it right away," while cautioning against the emotion of ongoing debate and an "us vs. them" mentality.

"The closer we get, the more emotional this debate is going to become," Obama said. "Immigration has always been an issue that inflames passions."

Republican Senator Marco Rubio has said he will oppose legislation that puts the Green Card process before border enforcement and security.

Yep, let’s make citizens of millions of criminals. After all they are illegal thus making them criminals.

Hell, let them bring their families ... no, no ... let them bring their extended families ... bring all of Mexico north, give them welfare and free medical and toss in a collage education while we are at it.

Why not, it is all on our dime.

Thank you OBAMA, you socialist ass.

Give the left NOTHING. Compromise got us where we are now. Just as in the gun control effort now is not only the time to say no more territory will be sacrificed for a false peace -now is the time to say less territory -now is the time to reclaim territory.

The only 'good' outcome is that Obama leads with his plan and takes away the spotlight from the gang of 8.

His plan being weaker than theirs, will perhaps push Rubio and McCain to not support it.

Rubio has already called Obama's plan 'weak'. That is a good sign.

So, hopefully Obama will bring down the deal with his presence.

So true-

They won’t enforce the laws we have now, so what makes Republicans think that Obama will enforce any new law?

If every illegal achieved normalized status tomorrow a black market for new illegals would immediately be born.

Many illegals have no interest in obtaining citizenship; they only come to America to earn money then go home.

There will NEVER be a secure border in the south. Illegals will not cross ANY border unless there is something on the other side to entice them. Mandatory E-verify will force millions to return home, and it costs NOTHING.

Sometimes the best thing to do is to do nothing. Let the libs scream; KEEP THE LOW INFORMATION LATINOS OUT OF THE VOTING BOOTH>>> OMG>

Only it isn't 11,000,000, Katie dear. Think more like 30,000,000. Okay?

We're talking Democrat presidents for the next 200 years.

If only they were only "low-information voters" .... it's worse than that. Their interests and upbringing have made them socialist to the core; they will vote 70-75% straight-ticket Democrat for generations to come. That's their voting pattern at home.

He obviously doesn't need the votes as there is no shortage of the dead and the lawless to manifest at the polls.

It's simply that he is the Destroyer. The vindictive, narcissistic control-freak sociopath types have this thing for paying back their victims for every perceived slight.

America is on the verge of being that poor woman at the crime scene who was bludgeoned and mutilated to death. The message to investigators being that the attacker knew the victim, and despised her with a raging passion.

That type of criminal would be too preoccupied to say, wipe a fly off of his forehead.

Don't be too sure of that. If he gets the House back next year, you could be looking at a repealer of the 22nd Amendment so Obama could serve basically for life.

Of course, 3/4's of the States' legislatures would be pretty slow to sign off on a repeal of the 22nd .... so look for more skank in the works.

Obama likes to work behind the scenes; he screwed Hillary at the caucuses, so he might try to build on that by calling a constitutional convention to basically rewrite the Constitution -- removing the checks and balances and turning America into a one-party Communist tyranny -- and then use skanky ACORN politicking to get the new constitution "ratified", Obozo's way.

Something like that.

This from a man who has been given so many opportunities. Why do so many feel so slighted and bullied etc. that they feel they have the right to wreck others lives. I do not understand his mentality and frankly he scares me. I just want to be left alone I do not wish to ruled by him or any of the other fools at the helm. I can not even say what I really think about him. When I saw the many photos of flies on him the first thing I thought of was the Amityville Horror that is just bizarre.

Obamass HATES America, our founding, the capitalist free market system, and our "flawed" Constitution. HATES IT, and was elected to TRANSFORM it. That is what he believes and he is half way to accomplishing it. There seems no legal way to stop him. The SCOTUS has turned on us also with their irrational Obamacare is not a tax on day one of oral hearings and then it becomes a tax when decision is reached. THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THIS MAD MAN IS FOR THE HOUSE TO SHUT THE FED GOV DOWN WHICH THEY CAN EASILY DO BY...

1) Stop passing Continuing Resolutions or put some fiscal bite into them,
2) Refuse to raise the Debt Ceiling and force it to the SCOUTS because Hussein will ignore Congress, and
3) Stop throwing away your cards like you did on the fiscal cliff, which was ready made to stop Hussein's obsession with spending obscene amounts, or at least it would have slowed the rate of growth.

They don't call the GOP the stupid party for nothing.

Reach out to those new citizens *immedately* and inform them of their rights and privileges, including the Second Amendment, and all that pertains to smaller government coupled with personal responsibility. Make them OURS. If we believe man truly yearns to be free, then act like it, preach it, teach it. They come in. They pay taxes. Turn this around, folks. Do not assume millions of people show up here solely for the purpose of being illegal and uncivil. The ones who do? BAMMM!

I believe as you point out that there is needed an effort to bring understanding to many immigrants, legal and illegal, that this Nation has It’s own history of being exceptional. However. I also believe that that there are many of these persons who came here by hook or crook to just feed off the labor and sweat of others. Of course this attitude is prevalent among many persons today who are not immigrants.

Don’t be fooled by the GOPs ‘enforce the borders first’ Kabuki dance.
Illegals will NOT vote for tax cuts over welfare, Rubio and McCain are lying about this.

The mentality of the wicked is such that they will not leave others alone. Darkness is wiped out merely by the existence of light. The dark side understands that it can only exist in the absence of light, thus it continually wages war against fundamental principles of reality (truth i.e. light).

They are by nature an insecure lot. It's not the competent boss or coworker who angles for promotion by trying to get someone fired. It's not the good neighbor or associate who pits people against each other. It's not the true leader who rules by wielding power and whipping up fear, etc.

Now we have a couple of generations of people who feel perfectly entitled to make demands upon others, adults who appear never to have been told "No" and presume others will do (and think) as they command. Obama is their mirr0r image.

Or more like a screen capture... like a window screen with flies.

The ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF is still trying to get his U.S. Citizenship.

This disgusting Curse on our Nation named Barack Hussein Obama II, aka Barry Soetoro, has a real birth certificate, with his right footprint on it.
All you have to do is look for it.

Here's some critical sources and FACTS.
People can go to www.scribd.com and read their pages 20 thru 32 ,
For those of you who don't know, remember this:
8 Congressional attempts from June 2004 to February 2008 to alter Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution, proves to meRead it for yourself.
Then look at these links.
Just before the 2008 election Barack Obama's election team spent $1.4 million blocking access to all of Obama's records.

Barack Hussein Obama II is UNCONSTITUTIONALLY QUALIFIED.
There were 8 attempts by Democrats to try to "Change the Qualification Rules" BEFORE Obama was elected.
They KNOW Obama's ILLEGAL ... AND .... UNQUALIFIED!

Obama's record is hard to find.
Check this link out Sunday, June 27, 2004 Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate.

This document from the British National Archives Show Son Born To Obama Sr. in 1961 In Kenya


shows a birth date of Aug 4, 1961, the exact date of genuine birth certificate with Obama's right foot print on it.

This IS the very document that links the ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF to his birth certificate.

Let me say again: Think about this.
Here's something to ponder. Now think about those facts,and statements.
The forgeries I'm aware of, are the three Birth Cretificate Barack Hussein Obama II has forged.
I don't trust evidence put forth by Obama supporters.
The disappearance of too much evidence on Obama is strong enough for me to know that he was born in Kenya.

Read INS DOC FOUND: U.S. CERTIFICATE ISSUED TO ONE EAST AFRICAN-BORN CHILD OF U.S. CITIZEN IN 1961!
The documents provided in that article are very damaging to Obama, and well worth your time.

Most of these early "supporters" of the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF were party to the Communists "spooks".
There's a great volume of history you have to go through to understand this, and it goes back to about 1850.

Read these three articles on one of my earlier post:


Now go back and read The Communist Takeover Of America - 45 Declared Goals.

Are you getting the depth of this Fabian Society takeover?

You wouldn't believe the information here

It's deep, it's ugly, and most people WILL NOT ... CAN NOT ... accept the truth.

Anybody recall a press release telling the masses about federal intelligence notes sent warning police about this cabal?

Obama makes speeches saying he wants to finally solve the problem with "comprehensive" immigration reform ... except that "comprehensive" in Obamaspeak means ONLY immediate legalization, and border control is not part of it.

And the MSM plays along. The media is a bigger problem than the democrats.

What are we doing? We're forcing American citizenship on these people. Where's the evidence these people want to become Americans? I remember the Rose Bowl filled with illegals screaming at the "home" American soccer team and supporting the Mexican team.

There's no evidence that the illegals want to assimilate.

This is all Kabuki theater—the Rubio/McCain/Gang of Eight plan would do absolutely nothing to keep Obama from similarly expediting citizenship for the tens of millions that their plan would legalize.

Their plan may make reference to a commission that has the opportunity to offer a recommendation on when the border is “secure” (sure), but the president would be empowered to grant the citizenship without such a recommendation at all.

That’s Rubio’s deceit—he knows fully well that the legislation he’s proposing has no actual, enforceable limit on border security before citizenship.

But he goes out and lies and lies and lies about it.

Absolutely. The parasite community needs to be publicly exposed and shamed at the same time; only take care not to shame people who really do need help.

Add one provision to the background check, pay taxes and penalty, get in line behing legal applicants etc.; each one (individual or intact family) must have a non-employer sponsor who is a U.S. citizen. I know some folks who I suspect are not here legally who are worth keeping (church going, workers, family oriented with kids as American as my own); I’d sponsor them if need be.

But none of it will be of any use without a WALL on the border.

Yes, he would do that, but he has to wait until he's got rid of the "Old America" armed forces -- the patriots and warfighters who wouldn't accept illegal orders from this down-low rent-boy, but would instead stuff them down his throat. (He might like that, come to think of it -- who knows what he "likes"?)

No, he needs his Red Army in place before he can bust that move. It's a chicken-and-egg problem. He needs an army before he can break the 22nd Amendment and proclaim himself Autocrator/Dictator/Big Brother. But it will take longer than four years to de-Americanize the U.S. Armed Forces.

Mandatory E-verify will force millions to return home, and it costs NOTHING.”’’

The Social Security Administration wants a fee of $5000 NON REFUNDABLE to the business owner—to determine if a prospective hire is legal to hire or not.

After the $5000 non-refundable fee, the cost is 56 cents per request.

See Spring 2010 “The Reporter” which comes with the quarterly 941 form-—when was about the last time period that they were printed and SENT to the business owner.

Now, we have to ‘download them’ on our own & don’t get the nuggets of new information we used to get mailed to us.

Make me a list here of small businesses which have $5000 laying around unused to send to the Soc Sec Admin on a non-refundable basis!!!!
