Obama has already made bypassing congress via executive orders on voting rights, health care, the economy, climate change and illegal immigration a hallmark of his administration
He also says “I respect the passion of these young people….”
But Obama is stony silent on the issue of respecting the Rule of Law and our national sovereignty as he works to expand the Democrat base by legalizing upward of 30 million of those who have invaded the United States. The issue of illegal immigration doesn’t need more laws, studies or debates, it cries out for leadership and enforcement. America doesn’t need immigration reform, it needs leadership reform — a necessity glaringly missing on both sides of the aisle, as we read in Breitbart.
Adding to the problems, the government of Canada has begun rolling up its welcome mat, stepping up efforts to track down and deport thousands of those claiming asylum status, whose applications have been denied. The crackdown is likely to have devastating repercussions in the United States. Analysts warn we could become a new destination for thousands of asylum/refugee applicants soon to be pushed out of the pipeline in Canada.
Arsonist Harry Burkhart is a case in point. The 24-year-old German national traveled to the U.S. from Vancouver after losing his nearly three-year bid for refugee status. During a reign of terror in the Los Angeles area, he set a series of nearly 50 blazes, costing $ millions in property damage. When captured, he told authorities, “I hate America.”
Monday as Obama was making his liberal immigration pitch in the sanctuary city of San Francisco, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) stated, “America is not an oligarchy. Congressional leaders must forcefully reject the notion, evidently accepted by the President, that a small cadre of CEOs can tailor the nation’s entire immigration policy to suit their narrow interests. A Republic must answer to the people.”
Sessions focused on the devastating impact immigration reform legislation will have on working class Americans of all backgrounds — a Congressional Budget Office determination that Sessions has continually emphasized while advocating on behalf of the interests of American workers. He said Obama “must be asked — by media and lawmakers alike — how he can possibly justify a plan that will double the flow of immigrant workers at a time when 91.5 million Americans are outside the labor force?”
Good question, Senator.
