Unfettered Immigration Breeds Crime, Terror

President Barack Obama’s campaign for change of immigration policy is executive overreach. It is true he has skirted the law with his executive actions while his ideological political appointees have attempted to change America by administrative fiat.

On Aug. 24, 2015, at political fundraiser in Las Vegas, N.V., Obama called all persons opposing his agenda, “crazies.” On Dec. 10, 2015, an Obama Department of Homeland Security (DHS) high-ranking official could not tell a congressional panel how many Syrian visa overstays are in the United States nor could she answer how many Syrian refugees there are.

The DHS has no idea how many foreigners, legal and illegal, are in the United States.

The Obama administration, whether the State Department (DOS) or DHS, has no meaningful vetting procedures for visa applicants, refugees, or asylum-seekers as immigration control is non-existent.

Meanwhile, Obama completely ignores the fact that most Americans are concerned about border control and national security due to unstopped illegal alien crossings, the Islamic terrorist killings, the crimes by illegal alien gangs, and the costs illegal aliens place on education, health care, and social services.

Obama and the Democrats stress “climate change” is the nation’s greatest threat. Tell that to the people of San Bernardino, Boston, and Chattanooga.

Immigration political correctness for more 30 years has harmed the nation:
  • 1982 — The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Plyler v. Doe (457 U.S. 202) held that benefits for the general public could not exclude illegal aliens. This gave a green light to new illegal immigration—free education and other social entitlements.
  • 1986 — The U.S. Congress passed the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), codifying free health care for illegal aliens.
  • 1986 — The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) started the mass illegal immigration — border crossing and visa overstays — and at least 1 million illegal aliens entered the country each year over the next 25 years. It started the concept of “amnesty” for illegal aliens.
  • 1996 — President Clinton signed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRIRA) which was supposed to curb visa overstay abuses, alien smuggling, and employer hiring of illegal aliens, while enhancing Border Patrol services and performance. It did not as President Obama trashed this law and other immigration laws with his executive actions.
  • 2005 — Border Patrol figures show, 94 percent of the 1.2 million illegal border-crossers were apprehended along the Southern Border in 2005. For every illegal alien apprehended, an estimated three to five succeed in entering the United States.
  • 2007 — The U.S. Census Bureau estimated that 9.7 million “uninsured non-citizens” cost medical providers $8.6 billion per year.
  • 2008 — An estimated loss of $30.6 billion was experienced by U.S. hospitals for services to undocumented patients.
  • June, 2009 — President Obama spoke at the Esperanza National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast and Conference, reaffirming his commitment to a pathway of citizenship for illegal aliens.
  • June, 2009 — U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder granted illegal aliens facing deportation an additional ground for appeal and delay, “poor legal representation.” The American people overwhelmingly rejected the congressional Democratic effort to give citizenship to illegal aliens.
  • Aug. 13, 2010 — President Obama signed the Southwest Border Security bill that was to curb visa overstay abuses, alien smuggling, and employment of illegal aliens and provide Border Patrol enhancement. The Obama administration has ignored law he signed.
  • June 16, 2012 — November 21, 2014. A series of Obama executive actions granting relief from deportation and granting citizen-like benefits to illegal aliens and their families are promulgated. The cost to taxpayers has not been estimated.
  • Fiscal year 2014 — The U.S. Sentencing Commission (USSC) for fiscal year 2014 reported 36.7 percent of Federal convictions were of illegal aliens with 4.0 percent legal immigrants.
  • Summer, 2015 — Two American women and one teenage girl were killed by illegal aliens in San Francisco, Santa Maria, and Lake County, Ohio. The Santa Maria woman and the Ohio teenager were also brutally raped and beaten. The killers had been deported numerous times. President Obama offered no word for the victims’ families.
  • December, 2015 — Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., offered a list of 12 examples of refugees who have been charged or convicted of crimes aiding Islamic terrorism in 2015 alone.
This list does not include some 30 recent naturalized citizens and legal permanent residents who also have been charged or convicted of aiding Islamic terrorism.

The Obama’s politically correct DHS and DOS vetting processes have failed.

President Obama says America must do penance for what he considers past foreign affairs sins. Therefore, America must accept unvetted or poorly vetted refugees and asylum-seekers from the Middle East.

The woman terrorist shooter, Tashfeen Malik, of San Bernardino infamy is a prime example of a purposely unvetted or poorly vetted immigrant.
Obama ignores the national security threats from radical Islamic terrorists.
