Gutierrez Urges Obama To Take Immediate Action To Halt Deportations
cbslocal.com ^ | July 8, 2014

CHICAGO (CBS) – Joined by several families facing deportation, U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) on Tuesday demanded President Barack Obama take “immediate” action that would prevent those families and others from being torn apart.

WBBM Newsradio’s Dave Berner reports families stepped to the microphone with tears in their eyes as they Agustin Corona, who is facing deportation, said he has children who were born in the U.S., and he’s had a job since the mid-90s.

“I would like to stay here. This is Chicago. I’m part of Chicago,” he said.

Gutierrez said Obama can use his executive powers to halt deportations, and he wants the president to step up.

“There are broad, wide, expansive measures that the President of the United States can take to stop the deportations,” he said. “Issue the executive orders immediately. There are too many families that have no time to wait.”

The congressman said the president knows what it’s like to have his citizenship questioned, and he knows it’s time to act.

“Mr. President, there are over 4.5 million American citizen children who everyday wake up to the possible nightmare of losing their mom and their dad. That has to come to an end,” he said.

Gutierrez said, since the Republican-controlled House for more than a year has been blocking a bipartisan immigration reform plan approved by the Senate, the president should act to ease the pain of millions facing deportation. “Be as broad and wide and as expensive and generous as the Republicans are mean-spirited,” Gutierrez said.

Those “families” threw their kids illegally across the border. They can unite back home in Mexico.

Must be full employment in Chicago, must not have anyone on foodstamps or welfare. Otherwise why would they be trying to let illegals stay in the US?

Suprisingly I support halting deportations. We do it by halting them entering our nation in the first place.

If it’s all out war these people want, then the government should give it to them.

This S has to stop.

Has anyone checked the politics of those being deported, since so many aren’t being sent back?

Deport illegals, period.

If legals have illegal parents here they can go back with their parents to their home country.

That makes perfect sense...let them all stay here.....that would stop the flow of illegals...look how Obama's deferred amnesty helped. .

Using the same logic maybe the federal government should stop prosecuting all gun possession laws to stop the flow of guns, try that on the next liberal you talk to.,

“We say to the president of the U.S., you said last week that we were right, that the negotiations have failed. Issue the executive orders immediately,” said Congressman Gutierrez.

Josefa Gonzalez is the partner of Wilson Gomez-Pu, who has spent ten months in the McHenry Detention Center because he is undocumented. He is the breadwinner of the family, and Gonzalez says bills are piling up. She has even stopped taking diabetes medicine so she can to feed her family.

“My children ask for their father and I do not have words to explain when he will return...The first days after he was detained by Immigration, my child would ask me at night, ‘When will my father come home?’ And I did not have an answer. The worries for my children are weighing heavy on me,” said Gonzalez, through translator Carlos Rosa.

Agustin Corona has been in this country for 20 years and has two daughters who are U.S. citizens. This year, he bought a home and is now scheduled to be deported.

“On July 31, I will present myself to immigration and ask them to stop my deportation,” said Corona.

“President Obama, you promised us you are going to take action at the end of the summer. Go big. Do as much as you can to help and protect these families from deportation,” said Carlos Rosa, the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights. “President Obama has deported 2 million people, more than any other president in the history of the United States. That means that we as a community of immigrants are suffering. Every single day 1,100 people are deported.”

You know? There are more than a few “Union Democrats” out there, outside of the SEIU and government employees unions, who are not thrilled about this invasion.

And they are holding out hope that Obama is “on their side”.

This hurts the country but it really hurts the Democrats.

I like it.

Yep, 322 million people here and about 7 billion outside the U. S., this influx of 300 thousand will certainly put and end to those who want to come here.

The undocumented in the story need to be investigated:

<><> How many identities are they using?

<><>How many stolen Social Security numbers?

<><> How many govt checks are they cashing?

Americans footing their bills demand answers.

<><> Did the undocumented ever engage in voter fraud?

<><> Did they coach others to engage in voter fraud?

<><> Are they registered to vote under several identities?

<><> did they ever vote under several identities?

<><> Did they coach illegals to vote using multiple identities?

<><> Does they have rap sheets here? Elsewhere?

<><> Do they receive welfare, food stamps, SSI, free medical care, Section 8 housing, UI, Workmen's comp under several identities?

<><> Did they ever apply for, and receive, monthly SS checks, claiming "asylum?"

<><> Did they falsify bank apps to fraudulently apply for sub-prime mortgages?

<><> Did they falsify EITC forms to get multiple refunds?

<><> Does they have legal driver's licenses?

<><> Valid passports?

<><> How many times did they wire-transfer remittances to Mexico? The Third World?

<><> Do they belong to radical America-hating organizations planning armed conflict to takeover the American SW?

<><> Did they get--free school lunches--welfare--- food stamps---free healthcare---SSI/ADD checks. secret Mexican bank accounts?

<><> Does they have offshore accounts under multiple identities?

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

Did the undocumented cash multiple govt checks under several identities in these categories:

UI, SSI, Workmen's Comp,

TANF (temporary assistance to needy families),

WICS (food assistance),

subsidized Section 8 shelter,

ObamaPhone subsidies,

Utility Assistance subsidies,

School breakfasts/lunches/snacks subsidies,

$5000 a year EITC checks per identity.

GUTIERREZ HAS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST--HE'S PUSHING AMNESTY---BUT ITS ONLY THE BEGINNING--- Cong Gutierrez (Dim-Ill), a leading advocate of the Senate amnesty 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.

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

This is most assuredly another shady act of collusion and conspiracy perpetrated by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to increase their political clout, and to jet-stream US foreign aid to their Third World masters. US tax dollars are then laundered, then funnelled back as campaign donations to amnesty-worshipping Obama and Dems campaign coffers.

The close-mouthed Congressional 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.

Dummycrats are signing 'em up like crazy---registering parasites, welfare breeders, terrorists, mass murderers, drug lords, drug dealers, mental defectives, diseased hordes....all strolling into the US using falsified documents, and stolen SS nos. Is he a member of La Raza, or other America-hating organizations planning armed incursions, that are set to receive millions in federal tax dollars via the amnesty bill slush fund? Membership would be grounds for disqualification....or even legal action

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

Gutierrez's aye vote for amnesty needs to be summarily disqualified. As an elected official, Gutierrez has an inherent conflict of interest in the amnesty provision which protects elected latinos from wrongdoing.

A PROTECTION RACKET EMBEDDED IN US LAW the Senate amnesty bill actually protects corrupt Latino Public Officials from US laws and from prosecution.......only latino pols.

Vote-crazed Dems allow amnesty to absolve elected/appointed latinos holding US public office from prosecution for wrongdoing---for crimes like government fraud, graft, bribery, selling votes for cash....(the usual politician crimes).

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

There really is a Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials organized for govt fraud.

NANCY SUCKS UP at Ntl Assoc of Latino Elected and Appt Officials Gala in DC
L-R--Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ);
Dr Salomon Melgen (under scrutiny for corrupt deals w/ Sen Menendez);
Rep Nancy Pelosi (Dimwit-CAL); Francisco /
J. Sanchez, US Under Secy of Commerce for Intl Trade,
Emilio Sanchez, Pres/CEO of VOXXI.
