Obama Invites Illegal Immigrants to His Big Speech, Still Refuses to Meet With ICE Agents
Townhall ^ | January 29, 2014 | Katie Pavlich

Last night, six illegal immigrants attended the State of the Union address as guests of President Obama in an effort to bolster his calls for immigration reform.

[snip] But it seems as though President Obama is more serious about emboldening illegal immigrants than helping law enforcement agents dealing with the problem. According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent and President of the National ICE Council Chris Crane, President Obama is still refusing to meet with them to discuss the issue.

"According to news accounts, the President has once again invited illegal immigrants to the State of the Union – and yet the President still refuses to meet with ICE officers. We have a President who will provide those illegally in the US with the seat of honor at one of the most important events of the year, but ICE officers who serve under him are unwelcome in the White House," Crane said. "This is symptomatic of the President’s continued demonstration of contempt for immigration officers and his blatant disregard for Congressionally-enacted law. ICE officers are forced every day to release violent offenders back into the streets; we are prohibited from enforcing immigration violations and document fraud and from cracking down on illegal employment; we are prohibited from enforcing public charge law to protect taxpayers; and we are forced to catch-and-release illegal aliens who are not ‘priorities’ even when officers' believe there is a threat to public safety."

Crane also pleaded with Republicans to stand up again amnesty, something he has repeatedly argued will decrease the safety of ICE officers across the country and begged them to work with ICE agents in order to find a solution to the ongoing illegal immigration problem.

As long as it suites HBO's purposes, he would have the inmates from Guantanamo sitting in that chamber....impeachment is the only solution for the law breaker but it ain't a gonna happen and everyone understands why.

So much for that whole “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” jazz in the constitution. Unfortunately there’s bi-partisan support for rewarding the criminal invaders.

Known criminals, I mean civil infractors, or whatever, at the SOTU. Unreal.

There’s still the question if he’s an illegal.

Methinks it’s high time to stop singling out obama for the misdeeds the entire Congress and Supremes are responsible for. He couldn’t do any of this (or even occupy the WH) without the complicit actions/inactions of virtually everyone else inside the Beltway. State governors, AG’s and the msm get honorable mention.

It’s a complete OVERHAUL we need!

Whenever a president, who has sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States, willingly and strategically trots out illegal aliens as his guests at his SOTU speech, I believe that act in itself is grounds for impeachment. Call me crazy. I believe it is an in-your-face defiant act that indicates he will only uphold the laws he likes. (Of course we all knew that.) For the sake of all America and out of respect for the Constitution, the legislators would do well to enact a law that forbids such contemptuous public behavior.

I did not intend to watch the SOTU last night, but hubby was trying to. Instead of watching the SOTU hubby and a neighbor ended up chasing illegals out of my daughter’s yard, out of the neighbor’s yard, and out of an old truck of hubby’s they were trying to steal.

Border Patrol arrived and took over the illegal chasing. BP chased illegals all night and when I came home from work today BP still had dogs and ATVs searching the surrounding brush. So we were as you can imagine happy to think that all those illegals and so many more are likely on “a path to citizenship” unfortunately one of those paths is here. Too bad the path doesn’t go to the houses of all the traitor politicians. I need to start searching for addresses...

Outrageous disregard of our laws - and rewarding the breaking of laws. Obama’s actions (and those of others supporting illegals) counter the efforts of us parents to teach our children to respect our laws.
