Why the Amnesty Lobby is Freaking Out
Townhall ^ | Apr 08, 2014 | Conn Carroll

Posted on 04/08/2014 8:22:19 AM PDT by george76

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus is done being patient. There was a time when an Oval Office meeting with President Obama could buy their silence. But no longer.

On Friday April 4, the CHC sent a six-page letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson demanding that Obama use "all legal means available" to "suspend, delay, or dispense with the deportations of immigrants who would qualify for legal status and protection under S. 744."

At no point does the letter bother to call for new legislation or the passage of S.744. Instead, the CHC just demands that Obama enforce current law as if he had already signed S.744.

...

amnesty advocates are freaking out now. They know that if Democrats lose the Senate this November, they'll be cut out of the debate entirely.

The USA doesn’t need any more immigrants.All immigrants are bad . they vote democrat. illegal and legal immigrants are mostly 3rd world poor and they have been the downfall of this country

there are 330 million people in the USA . enough. immigrants are not Americans and don’t share our values.immigrants suck.the last thing the USA needs is more immigrants . If i were president i would literally deport all non Americans and many democrats like Pelosi

democrats imported 80 milion 3rd world immigrants since their 1965 immigration act , legal and illegals to turn the USA into a socialist 3rd world hell hole. they are getting closer to their goal and the amnesty bill would do it

If you made $100,000 per year after taxes then you could buy anything you could ever need in the free market because someone would produce it for money( look at the millions of products for sale on Google , internet , ebay , amazon,Walmart, Dollar Tree etc etc). So we don’t need government for ANYTHING. private industry created a whole city DISNEY WORLD in Florida. So democrats create fake crisis like “global warming”,”no health insurance crisis” to justify the very existence of government and the continued growth of government(socialism)

I respectfully disagree that “all immigrants are bad.” Most of us have a history of immigrants in our background. My gg grandfather immigrated from Ireland in 1850 at the age of 8. The knee jerk “all immigrants are bad” mentality hurts the conservatives’ credibility on this issue.

They don't share our values

I can give you just one example that almost all non-Americans believe that is alien to us: non-Americans believe that it is ok for the government to ban guns , to not allow us to own guns. on this immigrants agree with democrats.

there are 330 million people in the USA

the last thing we need is more immigrants((legal or illegal) and especially the socialists coming in here recently

It is because they know if and when he does this, he will issue an Executive Order that any immigrant, illegal or otherwise MUST be allowed to vote. They want this done before this November’s elections. He wants to do it before, and in time for, the 2016 elections. Just a difference of timing, IMO.

The Amnesty Advocates don’t need to panic.

what you say is ridiculous. democrats used the 1965 immigration act to import 80 million 3rd world immigrants legal and illegal since 1965. THAT is why the USA is on the way to becoming a socialist state. that is what you favor. you are for socialism and against freedom. in my city is inundated with 3rd world immigrant scum. you are for the destruction of America.anyone that is for more immigrants legal or illegal is a traitor to America , a traitor to freedom and individualism.

Immigrants are NOT Americans

Obama has only gotten away with his illegal DACA amnesty because of its limited scope.

No.

Obama got away with breaking this law for the same reason he has gotten away with breaking uncountable other laws.

That reason is our corrupt media that backs him almost 100% on anything he does.

And they instantly attack and attempt to discredit and destroy anyone who even suggests Obama should be impeached or otherwise held accountable for breaking the law and breaking his oath of office.

The majority of people do not closely follow politics and are uninformed on the minutia of what takes place in Washington

They form their opinions on what they hear on talk shows, comments from comedians and entertainers and the occasional headlines.

The media put Obama in office and has protected him for five years.

As a whole, they are are whores for Obama and will defend him to the end.

"Immigrants are NOT Americans"

Ok this cheese is simply too tempting….

Todays (legal) immigrants may not be a gung-ho on America as their predecessors were in the 60s/70s/80s but for the most part still come to join 'our' way of life.

On the other hand, you are quite right that Illegal Aliens do not "share our values". They consider themselves foreign nationals, have no respect for the US sovereignty, or our law. Obviously, American values are held in equally low esteem.

I love your post. Immigrants have become such sacred cows that even those opposed to illegal immigration will jump to say, “Oh, I have no problem with LEGAL immigrants! Bring them on!” But we need a moratorium on ALL immigration. We’ve taken in far too many, and they’re not assimilating. Every problem we have in this country is either caused by, or greatly worsened by, the massive immigration we have had in this country in recent decades.

Hardly. And I'm well versed on the subject thank you very much.

The statement "all immigrants are bad" may have much truth to it put in correct context. Problem is anything that follows that statement will likely go unread.

Immigrants used to BECOME Americans, and it didn’t take long because they WANTED to become Americans. Sure there were enclaves, but they were usually competing with each other in the race for full normalization, full assimilation.

But that was back in the days when teachers had time only for the students and the subjects they were to teach. And many of those students read more and with greater comprehension in the fifth grade than college grads of today, and they went out and supported their families on that and later learning—nearly all of it for free.

The fault, in other words, is with US, not with the immigrants.

Are you some sort of troll? I wouldn’t normally ask that, but your posts seem to be a caricature of conservatism. In other words, you write like someone on the left who is trying to post what they think a far right person would post.

No. Some immigrants ARE American. Those that obey the law to immigrate here, learn the language, and assimilate into our culture are definitely American. Yes. There are immigrants who do exactly that, which also proves they share our values.

This doesn’t mean I support illegal immigration or even legal immigration without strict standards that serve America first. It does mean I think you’re spouting nonsense when you make a blanket statement that millions of legal immigrants not Americans.

After the democrats’ 1965 immigration act immigration has come from latin America, Asia, africa , the 3rd world. that is ethnic cleansing that is your legal immigration you support. the democrats use these non-whites in a game of racial marxism to set up the races against each other
and grow socialism. most hispanice
s, asians etc. vote democrat and so for socialism . so you are for socialism and ending freedom and opportunity. this is what democrats planned to destroy capitalism , freedom and America. and you are for that.

you all bashing me for saying we don’t need more immigrants are for 1 million dworld legal immigrants flooding our country . what other people is for that? no one with any logic. just the economic reasons are enough to not want more people flooding a country much less the social and political changes .

what about that there are limited resources in a country do you not understand? there is limited amount of oil etc in the USA . there are 330 million people already here. who would want more competitors to come take the resources , jobs , etc . are you insane or a socialist? do u have an once of brain cells or any sense of self preservation? only a socialist would want more immigrants . ok lets let 2 billion more in since legal immigrants are so good. s

no one in their right mind would want the 1 milli0n legal immigrants to keep coming here every year to the USA.

you are for more immigrants as you say they are so good. you approve of the destruction of the greatest country there ever was

Immigrants being “bad” shouldnt b the point.

We let a million people into the country per year, legally. Another 700,000 come in on green cards and student visas. Our country cant survive that on top of illegal immigration for much longer. There will be a serious crisis at some point if it continues, which it will.

STOP ALL IMMIGRATION NOW!
