Obama's Immigration Plan Includes Amnesty

In June 2014, President Barack Obama addressed his intention to bypass the U.S. Congress, the legislative branch of the nation, to issue an executive order granting some form of amnesty to undocumented foreign nationals residing in the United States.

In response to requests by Democrat candidates, he agreed to postpone his executive order on immigration until after the November 2014 elections.

Those elections are over, and the bludgeoning Obama, the Clintons, and the Democrat candidates took on Election Day enraged the president. The Republican victories appear to have stiffened his resolve to follow through with an Executive Order on immigration.

Members of his administration suggested that he sign the proposed order to distract Americans from the recent election results, an escalating ISIS war, Obamacare legislative machinations, and the president’s sinking approval rating.

Back on March 18, 2009, in a California speech, President Obama reaffirmed his pre-election stance on a “pathway to citizenship,” as if saying would make it so. Whether he believed that blanket amnesty legislation was doable or not, Obama was playing to his base. His promises have kept Hispanic voters (legal and illegal) in the hip pocket of the Democrats.

During the 2009-2010 congressional session, Obama and the Democrats hoodwinked pliant Hispanics. Democrats then had an overwhelming majority in the U.S. Senate and in the U.S. House of Representatives.

As the nation watched, no effort was made to pass comprehensive immigration reform  —not by Obama, not by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and not by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They sought to string out Hispanic support with promises of immigration reform.

The Obama cultists and immigration agent-provocateurs benefit from Democratic procrastination. By keeping Hispanics beholden to them and by receiving financial and voter support from limousine liberals, Obamaites keep Republicans on political defense.

The summer of 2014 saw the surge of Central American children crashing the Mexican-U.S. border. It was a reflex action to Obama’s repeated promise to bypass Congress and make major immigration change by executive order.

The 2011 and 2012 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memoranda on prosecutorial discretion and temporary legalization of illegal alien children (known as the DREAMers and up to 31 years of age!) made foreign nationals understand that the United States was welcoming all comers.

Americans may not realize it, but undocumented immigrants, especially from Mexico, Central America, Africa, China, and India, stay current on U.S. immigration policy and administrative opinions, news accounts, and which states permit undocumented immigrants to pay in-state college tuition.

They know that DHS employees are demoralized by the agency’s failure to enforce current immigration law and that illegal alien prisoners being released in the United States are eligible for free healthcare, education, and housing.

They also know that former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, in his most recent unsuccessful campaign as a Democrat, said that the Obama administration should not require proof of immigration status for Obamacare sign-ups.

On Nov. 15, 2014, Guatemala’s PrensaLibre newspaper reported a statement by Vice-President Joseph Biden that the United States would grant refugee status to Central American children because of poverty and violence.

Biden did so at an Inter-American Development Bank meeting on migration. His statement was in response to questions regarding an Obama promise to use his executive authority to entitle illegal aliens to American residency and work permits.

Meanwhile, poverty and violence among undocumented foreign nationals continue in the United States; one need only look at Chicago and its daily killings and shootings. By disregarding U.S. immigration laws, President Obama possibly imports more poverty and violence and chooses to ignore the regular legislative order.

Currently, some U.S. children, now the minority in some classrooms, are ignored by teachers busy coping with immigrant children who speak no English.

At the same time, the World Bank estimates that $414 billion was sent by foreigners in the United States to their homelands in 2013, including $23.17 billion to Mexico, $60.7 billion to China, and $61.8 billion to India. By 2016, such remittances may reach $540 billion, while the U.S. economy is projected to remain stagnant.

Concern regarding unchecked immigration is exemplified by Oregon, a very blue state, where on Nov. 4, 2014, a majority (66.6 percent) of the voters cast their ballots to cancel Measure 88, a new state law permitting illegal aliens to obtain driver licenses.
