Obama Starts ‘New Dialogue’ with Hispanic Caucus, Raising Speculation on Exec Order for Immigration
Pajamas Media ^ | 03/15/2014 | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 03/15/2014 11:32:39 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

President Obama met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus in the Oval Office last night to discuss how to move forward on immigration reform, with one caucus member saying afterward that their pleas for executive action were heard.

The meeting came after Obama threatened to veto two bills that passed in the House – the ENFORCE the Law Act of 2014, which puts in place a procedure that would expedite the ability of Congress to sue the executive branch for failure to faithfully execute the laws, and the Faithful Execution of the Law Act of 2014, which expands the number of circumstances when the attorney general is required to report non-enforcement of the law to Congress — that Democrats claimed were intended to block Obama from using his executive authority on immigration reform.

“House Republicans are doubling down on a strategy to defeat immigration reform. These two bills would disable the President’s ability to temporarily alleviate deportations and the separation of families,” said Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.

“These bills are another misguided attack on immigrant communities by my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. Instead of working to keep families together, they are punishing young people who are studying and working to become contributing members of our society,” said Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.). “If my Republicans colleagues want the support and trust of the Latino community, they have to earn it through their actions.”

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), sponsor of the ENFORCE Act, said it was about much more than immigration.

“The example I usually cite is mandatory minimums. Mandatory minimums have been around in drug cases for 25 years, and their constitutionality has been upheld. So when the attorney general, who is a member of the executive branch, just summarily announces he is no longer going to inform courts on the drug amount, you put that with immigration laws and 20-some-odd waivers with the Affordable Care Act, and the rhetoric,” Gowdy said on Fox. “You know, the president came into the House of Representative and essentially said, I’m going to do it with you or without you. So it is a combination of his rhetoric as well as his failure to follow the law that led us to introduce this.”

The White House said Obama’s meeting last night included Becerra, Caucus Chairman Ruben Hinojosa (D-Texas), and CHC Immigration Task Force Chair Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.).

“The discussion focused on their mutual efforts to pass commonsense immigration reform legislation through the House of Representatives this year. The President emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system,” the administration said in a readout of the meeting. “He told the members that he has asked Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to do an inventory of the Department’s current practices to see how it can conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law.”

“The President thanked the Members of the CHC for their work on these challenging issues, and expressed his strong desire to work together to put pressure on Congressional Republicans to pass bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform as soon as possible.”

Gutierrez said after the meeting that he’ll sit down with Johnson next week, followed by a Homeland Security meeting with the entire Hispanic Caucus.

“Just as important, Republicans should step up to the plate and take action on immigration reform and not abandon the American people on this important issue. And in the absence of action by House Republicans, administrative action is imperative,” Gutierrez said. “It is clear that the pleas from the community got through to the President.”

“…This began a new dialogue between the CHC and the White House that had been dormant for too long. The CHC Members who met with the President were adamant that the President needed to act.”

The more this man does to this nation the more I’d like to hear what Jesus would have to say to him. The love of Jesus is the only thing keeping him alive at the monent IMO after what he’s done to us. Had this occurred a hundred years ago there would have been a much different outcome and it would have been swift and unmerciful.

Just like his, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” lie, the zero king is now out to prove his statement “I wish I could bypass Congress on immigration, but I can’t” a lie.

Vote-crazed Obama has done everything to suckup for latino votes except fellate a latino on the Capitol steps. Looks like he was interviewing likely subjects when met Thursday evening with three members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus ----Reps. Xavier Becerra (Dim-Cali), Luis Gutierrez (Dim-Ill), and Rubén Hinojosa (Dim--Texas).


MARCHING ORDERS FROM THE THIRD WORLD Ratcheting up the undermining of US national security in collusion w/ the Congressional Hispanic Caucus is a hot topic in the Obama WH.

It's open season to conduct dirty deeds in the US. The porous Mexican border is the staging area for global terrorists, the criminal latino underworld, Third World lowlifes, drug cartels, savage latino gangs, and the like..... they all gather at the Mexican border (w/ the Mexicn govt's blessing) to crossover into the US.

Viscious Mexican gangs and drug cartels are said to operate freely across the border in Austin---the Texas state capital---right under the noses of the pols.

Need we be reminded ---- these Third World parasites are gorging at the public teat.

$20 billion goes to Mexico from falsified EITC refunds ......our tax dollars fianance luxury condos across the border.

The Dominican Republic is the paradigm parasite---scoffing up $1 billion per year their citizens here manage to steal. Lots of 'em get EBT cards.... then ship the food to the DR where their parasite relatives ell it on the street.

AMERICANS ARE FUNDING THIS HATE-AMERICA ORGANIZATION W/ A STATED GOAL TO TAKEBACK THE SW: In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to La Raza chartered indoctrination centers in the form of US Dept of Education grants.

LA RAZA schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murder and violence in US public schools, the federally-funded La Raza operates 100 charter schools across America. =================================================


<><> The Senate amnesty bill contains a provision to handover $100 million tax dollars (renewable every year) to subsidize La Raza's hate-filled agenda.

<><> the Congressuial Hispanic caucuss has been quiet about his role in financing, and, earmarking the blood-thirsty America-hating La Raza. race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-valled mortgage activities. La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the frgradayiio pg mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards.......US taxpayers were saddled w/ billions in bailouts which decimatied the US economy.

<><> La Raza aided and abetted latinos falsifying bank documents, resulting in risky loans over the last decade; they forced the lending industry’s ruinous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policies.

<><> La Raza also collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling."


Amnesty is a Third World gravy train---US taxpayers are forced to finance pressure groups---all lined up w/ their hands out for zillions in "foreign aid."

LYING IN WAIT FOR OUR TAX DOLLARS---THESE IMPOVERISHED COUNTRIES CURRENTLY HAVE ORGANIZED PRESSURE GROUPS INSIDE THE US (here illegally): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside)l Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.


MICHELE MALKIN REPORTED that the Obama White House/State Dept war spending bill sneaks in $1.4 billion for the “Merida Initiative”.......a stimulus/national security package for Mexico.

The close-mouthed Congressuial Hispanic caucus has been much too secretive about its role in financing, and, using Congressional earmarks, to finance the blood-thirsty America-hating La Raza.

FACTOID race-based "La Raza" was given tax dollars and Congressionsl earmarks to finance its so-called "mortgage counseling."

FACTOID La Raza's "strategic partnerships” with Wachovia and Bank of America forced the industry to degrade mortgage-application requirements and documentation standards.......saddling US taxpayers w/ billions in bailouts which decimatied the US economy.

FACTOID La Raza collected a $1 million Democratic earmark that funded “community-development” projects. Analysts report that much of it went to "mortgage counseling."


Did the Hispanic Cauvcs collude w/ La Raza to aid and abet latinos falsifying bank documents, resulting in risky loans over the last decade, forcing the lending industry’s ruinous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policies. Do they have proof of "mortgage counseling"?


Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus using government offices for illegal purposes. Taxpayers demand documents held by the Hispanic Caucus be scrutinized for possible falsification.

Falsifying Government Documents involves altering, changing, or modifying a document for the purpose of deception.......can also involve forgery and/or passing copies of false documents. Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

Types of documents commonly falsified may include:
◾Tax returns and income statements
◾Personal checks
◾Bank account records
◾Business record keeping books
◾Immigration documents (such as visas, passports, etc.)
◾Identification cards and birth certificates

Many different types of acts can be considered as falsifying a document, including:
◾Altering or misrepresenting factual information such as prices or monetary amounts
◾Stating false information when requested to provide truthful statements
◾Forging a signature
◾Using official letterheads without authorization
◾Concealing assets or property WRT obtaining federal/state grants))
◾Knowingly using or distributing a fake document

A person can only be held criminally liable if they are deliberately acting with the intention of deceiving or defrauding another party. /

Falsifying documents is a very serious offense and is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to the following legal penalties:
◾Having to pay a monetary fine
◾Incarceration in a prison facility

Depending on the gravity of the offense, as well as individual state laws, falsifying documents can result in a prison sentence of 5-10 years. Also, if government documents or authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. ..... legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.

The Congressional Hispanic Institute, Inc, is an entity organized by Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali) in his capacity as head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Cong Baca created "HOGAR" (Spanish for home) in 2003 to work with the mortgage industry, F/M, lenders, banks and latino community groups to increase mortgage lending to what savvy observers consider to be unqualified Latinos.

"HOGAR" colluded w/ Cong Baca in what was to become a massive bilking of taxpayers. Cong Baca calculatedly hyped the fact that the national Latino homeownership rate was 47%, compared with 68% for the overall population.

HOGAR was coached to call the figure "alarming," and to say "a concerted effort was required to ensure that by the end of the decade Latinos will share equally in the American Dream of home ownership."

HOGAR and Cong Baca conned the public, failing to note that most of the "dreamers" were illegals, citizens of Third World countries who had violated US borders.

Predictably, HOGAR colluded w/ co-conspirators which included:

(a) shaky mortgage companies that ran into big trouble;

(b) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both now under federal control after billions in taxpayer bailouts;

(c) Countrywide Financial Corp., sold to Bank of America Corp;

(d) Washington Mutual Inc., taken over by the US government and sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.; and,

(e) New Century Financial Corp. and Ameriquest Mortgage Corp, both now defunct, killed by defaulted subprime Latino mortgages.

HOGAR's ties to the subprime mortgage industry were substantial. Bribery and self-dealing were rampant:

<><> Companies that donated $150,000 to Cong Baca got the right to have their own research fellow who would conduct fraudulent studies, which were cunningly used by industry lobbyists to pump lending.

<><> Bribery and extortion in the form of $100,000 annual donations to Cong Baca, for which HOGAR provided phony news releases from Cong Baca's Hispanic Caucus promoting a lender's commercial products to the Latino market,

<><> The most shocking example of bribery well-substantitated by Hogar's literature..... HOGAR announced it worked with Freddie Mac on a self-serving two-year examination of Latino homeownership in 63 congressional districts.

The "study" found Hispanic ownership on the rise thanks to "new flexible mortgage loan products" that the industry was adopting at the urging of Cong Baca's collusive coterie.

<><> HOGAR conned lenders into even more lenient down-payment and underwriting standards.

<><> As the subprime debacle unfolded, HOGAR declined repeated requests for comment despite the economic havoc their activities precipitated.

The mortgage schemes demonstrated the criminal activities of border violators with multiple identities---perhaps violent, terrorist-connected foreigners---colluding and conspiring to defraud private companies and public entities. And mortgage racketeering enterprises which employed sub rosa finance and business practices to carry out deceptions and frauds.

The alleged ring of swindlers---a Congresman, individuals with multiple identities, banks, insurance companies, mortgage brokers--might be charged with cheating the US govt, taxpayers and bank share holders out of hundreds of millions of dollars via an elaborate web of mortgage and bank frauds.

The mortgage Dreamers used multiple phony identities, fraudulent Social Security numbers, purchased from identity forgers in order to obtain govt-subsidized benefits.

L/E will find that individuals with multiple identities obtained fraudulent mortgages then flipped the houses at ever-higher prices to family member who then absconded to foreign countries, sticking banks (and taxpayers) with hundreds of millions in fraudulent mortgages.

BACKGROUND A Wall Street Journal investigative report related that, according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council examination of the borrowing spree, uncovered financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers, a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, mortgage lenders and brokers, all colluding in fraduent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos with forged documents which enabled massive fraud.

This was not simply the mortgage market at work. It was fueled by avarice, greed, and Congressional enabling fraudulent practices. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low-paying jobs obtained subprime mortgages for prime properties---soaring to 169%.

Just wondering if La Raza supports traditional Aztec religion and human sacrifice.
