President Obama has just opened a floodgate of opportunity for young illegal immigrants in the United States, but could it squeeze the aspirations of legal Americans in the process?
Across the nation Friday, immigrant advocates and Hispanic youth groups hailed Obamas decision to offer legal status to some undocumented immigrants under 30 as a watershed in U.S. immigration history and a long-sought victory for ambitious youths denied a chance to realize the American dream.
But opponents of illegal immigration warned that the policy could create significant new competition for jobs and university slots at a time of nationwide recession and numerous states efforts to curb public spending.
I see a tidal wave coming, said Brad Botwin, president of Help Save Maryland, a group that opposes legalization for undocumented immigrants. Half of our college graduates today cant find jobs, and the unemployment rate for high-school-aged Americans is extremely high. This is unfair to U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who are out there struggling to get ahead.

And political contests.
They will all vote DemonRAT.
African-Americans getting hosed while black politicians look the other way!!!
In some areas of the country, male African-American unemployment hovers around fifty percent. What is surprising is that many black politicians oppose deporting illegal aliens and support massive immigration and amnesty even though mass unskilled immigration has a particularly dramatic impact on their constituents.
While many black families live in poverty throughout America, black politicians are eager to import more poor people who will compete head-to-head for jobs at the lower end of the economic scale. African-Americans are getting hosed by their own politicians on a grand scale.
Illegal immigration has undercut blacks from the jobs they once held in meat plants, service industries and on construction crews. In many cases they were union jobs that paid good wages with full benefits. Now those jobs go to illegal aliens who work for pennies above the minimum wage.
Yet from black politicians nary a peep is heard. One explanation is that many black politicians are wealthy and couldnt care less about the working stiff. Having to compete for jobs with millions of illegal aliens is something few black politicians will be faced with but millions of black and low income Americans will.
Black voters better realize the end result of granting work permits to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens will be more workers competing for jobs helping to drive wages down and unemployment up-—the last thing the African-American community needs is to be on the short end of the employment stick.
This may backfire on his butt. He gets Latino votes that he was going to get anyway but loses the youth vote.
“This may backfire on his butt.”
If the black community ever figures this out, they will know that their plantation master has thrown them under the bus in favor of people who are not even US citizens. That’s how much he thinks of his “peeps” and cares about them getting jobs.
He’s a panicked lame duck and was just shooting off his mouth.
This is a question for the states and if he tries to do anything about it—`I Have Spoken, Let It Be Writ, Let It Be Done—the SCOTUS should spank him.
It’s a question for the states because as we all know the feds aren’t doing much now on illegals (though they’re doing more than Bush did) and 0’s got four months to play tough guy.
I expect he’s going to get taken to the woodshed twice within the next few days by the black gowns he ridiculed in public. That’s going to be very embarrassing for a hyper-egomaniac, surrounded by incompetent sycophants, with a messianic complex a lot of psychiatrists would love to get on their couches.
For a smart guy ... he’s about as dumb as a 20 oz. Estwing framing hammer. He’s history. If Romney doesn’t kill anyone in public this summer or fall, he’s got the job.
If he says “let me be clear” again, I’ll puke.
I only watched to see the heckler.
They used to be called White House Press.
Now, I guess, they’re corpse-men?
Pammy is just figuring this out?
Hey Pammy, just think whats going to happen to Social security now that there’s another 20 million non-citizens on it’s role?
Take into consideration that Rubio has a book coming out next week, several major speeches are lined up, and there’s to be several TV interviews with Rubio as well...so the Obama camp is basically frighten of what happens over the next ten days. This was the only silver bullet they had to counter Rubio...who is going to pick up steam and start to take off.
When Rubio explains to the Latinos that this Presidential effort is the same thing you’d expect in some banana republic...like where they may have come from, they might stop to listen to him. When Rubio says that there is no law on the books to back up the President...they will be at least intelligent enough to comprehend that. When Rubio says that the Dream Act, which is almost word for word what the President did the executive order on....has been around ten years and never passed by the Democratic House or Democratic Senate, the Latinos will start to ask stupid questions.
In the end, it might play out to some degree, but it’s very likely to come back either in the courts or in public opinion to be a problem.
” hes about as dumb as a 20 oz. Estwing framing hammer. “
That’s an insult to a really nice hammer!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
So now we’re not just sending jobs overseas, we’re encouraging overseas to come here for jobs.....
Not to mention currying favor with Latino's who are disillusioned because of Zimmerman who is not a "son who looks like Obama".
Read today that the DOJ has sent 20 people to FL to try to drum up some kind of civil case vs. Zimmerman for owning a gun...if they are going to pursue that it makes sense that Obama would make this announcement today.
But, sadly, obama could announce he’s taking all the welfare benefits away from blacks and giving them to illegal immigrants and they’d still vote for him.
And one thing not being talked about. This isn’t about Mexicans. It’s about “illegals”, including muslims.
And they’ll do the jobs Americans won’t: namely voting liberal Democrat.
What astounds me is that these politicians think American Hispanics that have been here for generations are excited about this, it’s their children and grandchildren that will have to compete with those here illegally in a time of 10% unemployment. Shame, that politicians only pander to their friends and those who break the law, politicians no longer fear God nor their constituents. I wonder if I can go to Mexico or Canada and get a drivers license, buy property, or a discount for tuition, no, they would arrest me and deport me. The law only applies to the American citizenry not those here illegally, they are above it! Our politicians have made it so!
Once this is law, all these illegals will have green cards, making them eligible for food stamps, medi-cal, ssection 8 housing, let alone all the other aspects of being some what legal will afford them..30/ year olds will have families of their own, as well as some of the 16 year olds,..what a can of worms Obama has opened.. maybe he done it so he will be a green card holder and be here legally!!
Look, I don’t care if this sounds racist, it’s just a fact of life. I don’t ever remember ANYONE, black, white, Democrat or Republican ever giving a DAMN about whether homey*( Ebonics for ‘’young black male) had a job or not, least of all homey. If anybody and most of all ‘’black leaders’’ gave a crap about homey not having a job there wouldn’t be a single f’ing illegal alien in the country. Please, I don’t mean to be rude to you but I’m sick of hearing how bad homey’s got it as far not having a job. Homey don’t give a crap. He’s been conditioned for over forty years to expect to have his butt wiped. Why change now?
I'm sending it with a link to Obozo's act of treason re making young illegals voters in November to every parent and grandparent I know with kids with no jobs.
Now were not just sending jobs overseas, were encouraging overseas to come here for jobs.....
