GOP Needs Response to Immigration Policy

A poll by Rasmussen Reports, released on April 6, shows that 62 percent of those U.S. citizens polled believe the Obama administration is “not aggressive enough” in deporting people who are in the United States illegally.

During his first term as president, Barack Obama deceived the citizenry, Republicans in particular, with a White House press release dated April 15, 2011, that read: “Today I have signed into law H.R. 1473, the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011.”

The press release, however, then went on to say that the president “would ignore Section 1112 of the Act, which barred the use of funds (for the remainder of fiscal 2011) to bring Guantanamo detainees into the United States.”

The president also “would ignore Section 1113 of the Act, which barred the use of funds in 2011 to transfer such detainees to the custody or control of foreign countries, unless “specified conditions” were met. The president then failed to comply with the act’s continuing resolution, which was the basis for Republican Congressional consent. Why did Obama sign the law, if he didn’t mean to enforce its provisions?

Yet the Republican leadership in Congress has not effectively called Obama out for his failure to enforce legislation, which he himself signed into law. Take Obamacare, for instance. Yes, take it please and start over with new legislation. The president “misspoke” when he promised tax-paying U.S. citizens that they could keep their doctor, and that health insurance premiums would go down.

Ignoring Congress, President Obama has “enacted” his change of America through executive orders, bureaucratic fiats, and administrative directives for immigration, education, energy, farming, foreign policy, income redistribution, and health and social realignment — even when opposed by U.S. citizens who elected him twice.

These same U.S. citizens are now seeing “the change” that Obama envisioned. His way or the highway is the Obama way with unconstitutional use of authority. In his second term, Obama apparently feels unrestrained and acts with little regard for the Constitution.

Obama apparently is working from the rulebook of Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), the community-organizing guru of U.S. political policy. Trickery was Alinsky’s key to social and economic change through the redistribution of wealth. Obama, with the backing of radical Democrats, no longer needs political deceit or trickery. He needs only the gall to do as he pleases, as long as Republicans fail to respond.

Where is the voice of the Republican Party? Why not challenge the president’s cavalier attitude toward political and foreign agreements? Republicans seem to have opted out of presenting a united loyal opposition. Republicans owe U.S. citizens, especially after the 2014 reclaiming of the U.S. Congress, to rein in this artful-dodging president, but they appear to be bogged down in internal bickering that gives Obama unbridled opportunities in foreign affairs, immigration, and tax matters.

Hispanic journalist Ruben Navarrette Jr. deserves wide credit for his April 6, 2011, article, the Obama two-step, which has gone far in awakening the Hispanic population to the Obama deceit on immigration reform. Obama and Team Obama have been quick to counter their missteps with damaging executive immigration giveaways.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO), to its credit, has filed reports demonstrating that the president’s rhetoric on border security enforcement and his administration’s actual policies are two very different things. U.S. citizens might read the following reports: GAO 14-368, GAO 12-706, GAO 11-411, and GAO 09-708. These reports document the Obama administration’s lack of desire to control the border.

Paraphrasing Alinsky, change is not done by organizing Hispanics and disinterested citizens but by using them, as Alinsky elitists are contemptuous of “the people.” The Obama and George Soros elitists continue to follow Alinsky’s camouflage imperative, by merely using Hispanics and blacks as voting pawns.

As a young man, Obama taught the Alinsky method of organizing for the Developing Communities Project in Chicago — now the city known as the murder capital of the country. Radical-left Democrats are using camouflage, deceit, and deception, part of Alinsky’s methods for change, along with liberal news media to open the U.S. borders.

President Obama’s actions to manipulate the Hispanic population with promises of a “pathway to citizenship” for all illegal aliens are pure Alinsky. Obama and the Democrats know that U.S. citizens overwhelmingly oppose unfettered citizenship and benefits to illegal aliens. Illegal immigration is the current national security issue. Some Washington political wags, based on Obama’s less than accurate statements on Benghazi, on Bergdahl, on IRS corruption, have taken to describing the president as “the deceiver in chief.”

Demosthenes, an ancient Greek Orator and statesman, said it well: "What greater crime can an orator be charged with than that his opinions and his language are not the same?"
