Posted on 08/01/2014 9:24:46 AM PDT by Kaslin
According to Rep. Luis Gutierrez, Obama intends "to act broadly and generously" on behalf of the "millions and millions" of illegal immigrants in the United States today.
Gutierrez, who meets often with the president, is implying that Obama, before Labor Day and by executive order, will grant de facto amnesty to five million illegal immigrants.
They will be granted work permits and permission to stay. With his pen and his phone, Obama will do what Congress has refused to do.
There is a precedent. Obama has already issued one executive order deferring the deportation of "dreamers," children brought into the United States illegally by their parents before 2007.
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions is on to what is afoot. "We must prevent the president's massive amnesty from going forward," he says, and urges legislation to block an executive amnesty. But this divided Congress is not going to pass any such law. Nor would Obama sign it.
Still, would Obama dare deliberately ignite a nationwide firestorm by declaring an executive amnesty for 5 million illegal immigrants?
Why not? Consider the risks -- and the potential rewards.
On the downside, an Obama amnesty would polarize the country, imperil red-state Democrats and cause even allies to conclude he had become a rogue president who adheres to the Constitution and rule of law only so far as they comport with his agenda.
And what is his agenda? As he has said: to transform America.
Obama wants history to rank him among the transformational presidents like Lincoln, FDR and Reagan. And what better way to transform America than to ensure her evolution from a Western and predominantly Christian country into that multicultural, multilingual, multiethnic, borderless land Teddy Roosevelt inveighed against as nothing but a "polyglot boarding house for the world"?
Obama did not like the America we grew up in.
As he told that closed-door fundraiser in San Francisco in 2008, that America was too full of life's losers who "get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiments."
What would be the political benefits to Obama of an amnesty?
It could weld Hispanics to the Democratic Party, would be wildly popular with the ideological and Christian left, and quietly welcomed by those Chamber-of-Commerce Republicans who have silently supported amnesty and secretly want immigration off the table in 2016.
An Obama amnesty would instantly become the blazing issue of 2014, replacing his foreign policy fecklessness, diffident leadership, and IRS, VA, Benghazi and Obamacare foul-ups and scandals.
Among Republicans, a roar would arise from the base to impeach Obama, no matter the consequences. But while impeachment would divide Republicans, a Democratic call to arms to save the first black president from impeachment would unite his party and bring the money rolling in.
Every Republican running for the Senate would face the question: How would you vote on convicting the president, if the GOP House votes to impeach him for high crimes and misdemeanors?
In the long run, an amnesty that puts 5 million illegal immigrants, most of them from Third World nations, along with their progeny, on a certain path to citizenship, would complete the process of turning America blue.
How would such a blanket amnesty affect our country's future?
After this second amnesty, word would go out to the world that if you can get into America, by whatever means necessary, and lay low for a while, there is a near certainty you will be able to stay.
The children pouring in from Central America, we are told, are fleeing repressive regimes. But billions of people in Asia, Africa and Latin America live under repressive regimes.
If all are entitled to come, they will come. And they will remake the West and America in their own image, Obama's image, the image of that Tower of Babel, the United Nations General Assembly.
How many more tens of millions of poor and uneducated people can we absorb before we exceed the carrying capacity of the republic?
How much more diversity can we handle before there is no unity left?
As we boast of our ethnic, cultural and religious diversity, what still makes us one nation and one people? For it is not religion. Not culture. Not custom. Not history. Not tradition. Not language. Not ethnicity.
Is it only a Constitution and Bill of Rights -- over the meaning of which we fight like cats and dogs.
What problems of America -- from sinking test scores, to collapsing roads and bridges, to endless borrowing to save our social safety net, to income inequality, to culture wars -- will be more easily solved with tens of millions more of the world's destitute arriving?
The only problem that will surely be solved by the next 50 million immigrants, who follow the 50 million legal and illegal immigrants who have come since 1965, will be the problem presented by the continued existence of the Republican Party.
Americans should let Obama know what they think of his amnesty now, before he imposes it upon us.
Obama knows what we think, which gives him a sense of satisfaction (in my opinion).
My boss got a call from the local Chamber of Commerce yesterday. He bluntly refused to take the call or speak to them given their behind the scenes amnesty push. I wonder how many others are giving them the message as well.
It seems Satan is in charge of the world. As foretold in the Scriptures. God help America. Open our hearts and mind to see Thy Kingdom and turn us from the path we have been walking, in Jesus name, amen.
1. Impeachment? Deserved but for political reasons it's not going to happen. Jane Fonda will be convicted of treason first. Soros will become Bernie Madoff's cellmate first.
2. Sue to overturn? This should be done but it will take years and will ultimately lose in the Supreme Court. (a) Who would have standing to sue? (b) The courts will not reverse the grant of legal status. The courts will say that the illegals depended on the legality of the decree. It all goes back to John Marshall's ruling on impairment of contracts, which seems to have ended up saying that if you stole something under color of law, you get to keep it.
Question for the legal experts: What is the basis for the legal definition of standing to sue? Should this definition be attacked, or would changing the definition give even more power to the courts?
3. End the legal preference for family reunification. If they want to reunify, let them reunify in the Old Country. Specifically, no family reunification for those Obama let in.
4. Constitutional amendment making English the official language of the US. No lawsuits demanding bilingual anything. It is the obligation of immigrants to learn English.
5. Henceforth, no person who has entered the US illegally or remained here illegally will be eligible for legal entry under any circumstance. No citizenship ever. No green card ever.
6. End birthright citizenship. Retroactively.
7. Boycott of charities and churches that aided the illegals. We can meet charitable obligations but still choose charities in part on the basis of their prudence. Refuse to help organizations that provide charity without justice, charity without prudence, and (as someone else here put it a few days ago) charity without discernment.
8. Make it a federal offense to provide any aid not required by law to an illegal alien. Go after the Supreme Court ruling that illegal alien children are entitled to a public education.
The GOP's failed lack of response to DACA has set the table for the next one.
Many local Chamber of Commerce are not related to the national organization at all. Mine isn’t.
This has all been predicted along time ago. The data are overwhelming. It started with the Immigration Act of 1965 that changed our demography forever. Unfortunately, this train left the station a long time ago.
Heavenly Father, we bow before Thee in repentance for our sins and allowing evil to prevail in our nation. Forgive us LORD. Help us to see Thy grace, tender mercies, loving kindness, faith, and understanding of Thy WORD, aided by the HOLY Spirit, in Jesus name.
Thou has richly blessed us all by the fact of our being alive and giving us and raising us in the land of America, Help us to do, be, see how to have faith in Thee and save America. Thank Thee LORD!!! Without Thee we can do nothing, in Jesus name amen. amen.
You may well be right. But there’s a lot of hostility to the immigration scheme — like the demonstration in Boston. And one case of Ebola in the US — from an African, not an American medical worker giving aid there — might change the whole debate.
Which is the point. Granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens would create two permanent underclasses - the illegals themselves, and the larger group of Americans with Constitutional and traditional beliefs who would be angry, resentful, and bitter. In addition to this, amnesty would revitalize race-based advocacy groups such as La Raza, and, if Obama is successful, perhaps other advocacy groups in opposition that don’t exist yet. And so society becomes embroiled into chaos as people fight each other - and the elites benefit from dividing and conquering.
Back in college several of my political science classes studied Leninist principles. Obama’s actions are classic Leninist leadership as he organizes and promotes division using agitation propaganda. I don’t believe he cares about the Hispanic vote, either. The illegals are tools used to destroy America from within, with the goal of control by people like Obama.
What came after Lenin might presage what we’ll face soon enough. God help us.
It can not be stopped—Obama wants them Democrat Votes! Brown is the new Black! Obama will do all he can—and that’s a lot. He can not be stopped save by a take over by the army—and he has filled the Joint Chiefs of Staff with supporters. America is too complacent—fat and easy to fool. No, If he wanted—Obama could be re-elected to a 3rd term and he may do it—or just cancell the election? King Obama? Maybe possible.
