Obama’s quasi amnesty directive skirts Congress; Flake mum

Recent reports detail the displeasure Barack Obama has encountered from longstanding radical Hispanic nationalism advocates such as La Raza, MALDEF, MEChA, LULAC and ACLU for his lack of implementation of the amnesty they seek.

Flying under the radar, however, is the fact that the Obama administration is implementing a quasi-amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, just in time mobilize a grateful thrust of new Hispanic voters for the 2012 election. The stealth DREAM Act provides illegals with amnesty and residency permits. This new directive goes hand-in-hand with the intent “to implement policies to stop the deportation and removal of individuals charged with, but not convicted of, minor traffic offenses who have no other criminal history or egregious immigration violations.”

Top officials at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency announced the new rules via this 6-page “prosecutorial discretion” memo which states officials need not enforce immigration laws if illegal aliens are enrolled in an education center or if their relatives have volunteered for the US military.

This action comes on the heels of a threat issued to a skittish Obama by U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Dem-Ill), who says he will urge Latino voters to stay home in November without a solid amnesty proposal.

Recently, leaders of the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials minced no words in criticizing Obama for skipping their annual conference for the third consecutive year. As a candidate in 2008, he promised that he would return as president.

“It’s getting harder and harder for the president to go into a venue where he is confronted by Latinos because he is in a jam,” said Gutierrez, an early Obama supporter. A close congressional ally of Jeff Flake’s, Gutierrez has pressured the Obama administration to impose amnesty via executive order.

In what he has announced will be a $ BILLION campaign Obama is facing disillusioned American citizens who are suffering the highest unemployment and home foreclosure rates since the Great Depression, as he continues unabated spending. A new voter base of indebted illegals magically made legal could ensure his reelection.

Rep. Jeff Flake has partnered with the radically liberal Gutierrez on myriad left-of-center issues, including legislation which mirrors the new administration directive. But Flake is a U.S. Senate candidate now and has abandoned his previous positions as in this ambitiously revealing statement: “In the past I have supported a broad approach to immigration reform — increased border security coupled with a temporary worker program. I no longer do.” Jeff Flake’s illegal immigration position switcheroo was predictable, as he emulates his mentor, John McCain.  The amnesty proponents at the Arizona Republic were so shattered they editorially referred to Flake as a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman.”

Previously, Gutierrez heaped high praise on their association, as in this article for Progress Illinois in which he acknowledges Flake’s joint efforts to “help him turn more red states blue”  —  just the trait Republicans are looking for in a U.S. Senate candidate.

The time has come to ask senate candidate Flake about his odd proclivity, since he claims to be a Republican.

    After this what would give us any reason to trust the feds with enforcing the Legal Workforce Act???? From what I’ve read about it, “The bill already has bi-partisan support and has been accepted by big business and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “They don’t like the bill, but they will support it as the lesser of two evils… referring to the tough bills recently enacted in a few conservative states”. This tells me that those ‘few conservative states’ are getting screwed if this isn’t as tough and that if the feds enforce this like they have all of our other immigration laws our whole country will be screwed and lose states rights in the process!

    Amnesty just in time for the 2012 election? Obama was well aware he was ticking off his Hispanic supporters. Couple their newly energized support, with the blacks who voted for him at a record 96%. It won’t matter what this Marxist does to America, he will insure his reelection. The Hispanics want to take us over, anyway, with their reconquista programs teaching public school children that the American southwest is theirs and they intend to reconquer it.

    For so long we have allowed our politicians to make laws and control our lives, I have been outraged about flake for 5 years McNasty for over 15 years, but they still kept winning election. Flake knows we are watching, he even went to the Tea parties for support, I do not know many that will give him his support. We need somone to run against him, but so far all our hopes have been dashed. Flake will betray us as soon as he wins, he had betrayed us in the past and will again just like his mentor McAmnesty.

      We need some heavy recruitment and the sooner the better to rid ourselves of this menace. Flake is already raising a ton of money although he is unchallenged. The East Valley LDS crowd will support him regardless of the fact that he’s not in the least conservative, despite the fact that many of them are staunchly so. Flake is careful to stay away from Gutierrez when his constituents are watching. Gutierrez came to Phoenix on a multi-state pro-amnesty crusade, and Flake was nowhere to be seen. Flake touts his opposition to earmarks, so people think that makes him conservative. He’s actually a Libertarian but couldn’t win an election with that label. As far as earmarks, since Arizona taxpayers are filling that pot, why shouldn’t we at least get some of it returned? All of the other states are sharing in our confiscated money while Flake turns up his nose at it. Don’t get me wrong, I would prefer there were no such out-of-control spending excursions. I’m simply being a realist.

    The aptly named Congressman FLAKE has a D+ rating with the very credible Numbers USA group.

    I will vote for the democrat before I ever again vote for a fake Republican.

    • Rambling Rose says:

      No kidding, Ricky! I’m also sick of the deception. I’m a conservative and I’m disgusted with having to chose between a Democrat liberal Obama or another RINO liberal named McCain.

      If Flake is elected, he’ll be there for decades. I guarantee he’ll be worse than McCain. You’ll never catch his professional streaked locks hidden under a baseball cap. His whitened teeth and weight lifting physique will be on display as he grins and tells us what a swell job he’s doing — all the while stabbing us in the back while promoting himself. His associations stink. I wouldn’t have known about many of them without this site. Thanks for keeping us up to speed. But even though I send links to some of these posts to others, the fact remains it makes no difference if he runs unopposed. This senate seat is critical.

    • amattclarkson says:

      Your definition of “very credible” needs to be reevaluated. I thought we were trying to stop illegal immigration, not immigration altogether.

      • Oscar says:

        Amatt, I actually agree. NumbersUSA is a population control advocacy group and I am not sure why people keep using them as a source.

    “We need somone to run against him, but so far all our hopes have been dashed.”
    Agree. There is a women’s organization training women to run for office, so one might assume there is one for men–but is there?

    Let’s draft Palin!
