Direct from the White House website comes this load of double-talk from the Council of Economic Advisors.
“The President is continuing to take action, within his legal authority, to fix our broken immigration system. Today, the Administration announced a final rule that will allow spouses of certain high-skilled workers to contribute to the economy while they wait to obtain lawful permanent residence status (or a “green card”) through their employer. America needs a 21st century immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants—and that grows our economy. This change, as well as the other actions announced by the President this past November, will do just that.”
Sprinkled liberally throughout this piece of flagrant deception, “Taking Action to Unlock the Economic Contributions of Americans-in-Waiting,” (from which we have excerpted this paragraph) are the words “our broken immigration system.”
America’s citizens know full well our immigration system isn’t broken. The only thing “broken” is the will of Obamacrats to enforce it.
When the latest Labor statistics show Americans are still unemployed and underemployed in record numbers —- with many forced to accept lower paying jobs for which they are over-qualified —- in this still fragile economy, why import workers to compete against our own citizens?
On a good day, and trying hard, we couldn’t make this stuff up.
As you watch this video compilation, pay attention to his words as Obama said, “Ultimately, our nation, like all nations, has the right and obligation to control its border and set laws for residency and citizenship.” He was right then. He is distorting the U.S. Constitution, usurping congressional authority and corrupting our generous legal immigration process now.
