Obama will extend amnesty for young illegals, says top White House aide
The Daily Caller ^ | December 11, 2013 | Neil Munro, White House correspondent

Posted on 12/11/2013 4:51:55 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

President Obama will extend his mini-amnesty for young illegals, said Cecilia Muñoz, White House director of domestic policy.

“As long as this president” is in power, “you will be able to renew your deferred action,” Muñoz told one questioner during an online question-and-answer session on immigration conducted via Skype.

So far, Obama’s deputies have granted the two-year “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” amnesty to at least 567,563 illegals, giving them the right to get jobs in every state, get drivers’ licenses in some states, to enroll in school and to receive government aid. Only 21,162 illegals have been rejected. Roughly 11 million illegals are living in the United States....

Ah, Cecilia Munoz, there’s an old lefty for you. Goes along with Eliseo Medina, hardcore red. Both either work for or are friends of Obama.

Now you know...!

Where is the law that permits him to do this? Oh, I forgot, Obastard makes up laws and breaks them as he pleases.

You’d think that blacks, who have the highest unemployment rates, with some age groups up to 50%, would be pushing back on this.

I guess this is where the money they are taking away from veterans is going to go. Communist redistribution. Take money away from them who don’t vote for you and give it to those that do.

"Roughly" my @$$. Try 30 to 50 million. That 11 million number is 10 years old.

They seem to forget their own chants of "trained killers" and "we support our troops when they kill their officers" from recent wars. Do they really want millions of people trained to destroy people and things on their cases? Or are they not thinking this through?

"Roughly 11 million illegals are living in the United States...."

What's really strange is how the population of the US has grown to around 330 million IIRC, yet the number of illegal immigrants stays at the 11 million mark and never goes up. Even over the last 20 years

In fact, this seems lower than the USUAL "12 million" that is thrown around.

I'd estimate the number at least 20-30 million, simply based on my local paper's "crime beat" section.

Either illegals commit crimes WAY out of proportion to their numbers, or there's a whole hell of a lot more of them than we are being told.

It’s a joke, that number. As funny as Obama making up rules as he goes along, as far from ashamed of his own behavior at a public funeral, as the representative of the Great United States.

Three more years plus one month and about ten days. of him. Less for many of his republican enablers.

I don’t see any requirement for them to register for selective service. Why should they be “entitled” to government assistance?

Why did their own government of Mexico foresake them?

Off topic but wanted to show this snap from today (I've gotta run and didn't see a good place to put it). Apparently LaRouche is pushing the Impeach Obama, too. People were going over to the table and there were signs all up and down the road in front of the post office.

Obama can only “make” laws if the people obey them. The ideal response would be for local and state governments and businesses to simply refuse to follow the “laws”. It’s sad that the feds have bought the local cops with grants.

LaRouche is insane.

He pulled the same crap when Bush was POTUS. He just changed the picture.

Same Hitler moustache.

I can't figure the guy. He's old and useless.

Maybe it's some money making scheme.

The LaRouche folks are an interesting bunch. I have yet to read through all the material they provided, but they seem interested in liberty but with centralized controls to manage it. I don’t quite get it. They’re also interested in hydroelectric energy that’s potentially available on the western side of North America.

Notice that the amnesty is made conditional on Obama's continuation in office.

"Roughly" my @$$. Try 30 to 50 million.

Yeah, I suspect Census Bureau sandbagging here under Presidents of both parties .... my own personal guesstimate is 30-35 million adult and child illegals, with no handle on children born here who shouldn't have been.

The joker in the deck is that some proportion of illegal immigration is repeat business by migrant working men who work 6-18 months or so and then return home. That pattern also typified 19th-century Irish and Chinese immigration. It isn't permanent until they bring mamacita with them, and the kids.

My first month in Houston, I saw the future: A very short Mexican Indian dude, leading his pregnant wife by the hand down a sidewalk at the corner of Westheimer and Hillcroft. I remember thinking, "uh-oh". No doubt they're still here.

B.S. There are a lot more than 11 million illegals in the US.
If an amnesty passes, no less than 30 million illegals and their relatives that they will bring with them will be legal overnight. No country can absorb such a large influx of linguistically and culturally different people all at once.

Also, since when can a President decide to not enforce laws just because he does not like them? Prosecutorial discretion, right? This is grounds for impeachment, but the republicans are too timid to try.

AS FREPER SICKOFLIBS ADVISES: "illegal Dreamers, and their American relatives, are not the least bit happy about this. To get "deferred status." they must register... so now the Federal government knows where they are, and how many fake identities they're using to ride the US gravy train.

And as Obamacare sinks, and Dems stink, conniving illegals are not so sure they will get a Dem POTUS, and a suckup Congress, leaving them quite insecure......

===============================================

SUMMING UP To get deferred status the illegals must register...so now the Federal government know knows who they are.......ergo, the mountain of govt checks they're cashing under multiple identities --and loyally wire-transferring back to their homelands---might actually come to a screeching halt.

I guess Obama is humming, "if you like the deferred plan, you can keep the plan," to the strains of La Cucaracha. ROTFLOL

Roughly 11 million illegals are living in the United States....

THIRD WORLD AGIT-PROP Mmmmmmm, methinks the numbers are skewed for political purposes. Mexico and the Third World are pushing North at a a furious pace--can't wait to get their greedy hands on US foreign aid and get back the Southwest.

I see this as nothing more than agit-prop from political pressure groups---this is an invasion of America-hating foreigners pushing their Third World agenda----vile, repugnant "ethnic solidarity" rearing its ugly head.

Keep in mind, these scam artists are intent on building a Third World on US soil using our tax dollars---they want to relegate born-Americans to third class status.

That ain't gonna happen.

=======================================================

THIRD WORLD'S GOT B-I-G PLANS---AMNESTY IS ONLY THE BEGINNING : "Once Congress approves an immigration increase, minorities should demand more, said Cong Gutierrez (Dim-Third World), a leading advocate of the Senate bill giveaway.

“The next day after we pass it, you know we’re not going to be satisfied, we’re going to come back,” he said. “We’re going to have a civil rights act, we’re going to have a voting rights act… Nobody is leaving this fight once we conclude this first chapter,” he said. "Hopefully, in 30 years, [we] can bring immigrants… from all over the world,” Gutierrez said.

==============================================

WHO BELIEVES ANYTHING OBAMA SAYS? So far, Obama’s deputies say they have granted the two-year “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” amnesty to at least 567,563 illegals, giving them the right to get jobs in every state, get drivers’ licenses in some states, to enroll in school and to receive government aid. Only 21,162 illegals have been rejected.

And that includes how many identities?

Good catch Liz.

Yep, I been pointing this out for many months.

He wants to keep them motivated and to bug their US citizen Hispanic relatives to vote, to keep the issue active. To have them feel chained to his success or failure.

They have to register to get it. Register as a temporary illegal.
