The job of Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, is well-defined, his duties unambiguous. The office is entrusted to guard America against terrorism; ensure our nation’s border is secure; enforce our immigration laws; have national readiness programs in place to respond to, and recover from, disasters. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is also under the purview of the sprawling department.
Since it was established in 2002, our security has lessened and our sovereign border has become meaningless. We repeatedly hear our generous legal immigration system referred to as “broken.”
Watch this recent appearance of Jeh Johnson before a congressional committee. It won’t take long to realize that his disconnect on the criminality associated with illegal immigration is mind-boggling. The safety and security of American citizens obviously are less important than keeping the floodgates to Mexico and other third world countries swung wide.
Now we learn that the Obama administration is moving forward with plans to further expand a waiver program that will allow additional illegal aliens to remain in the United States rather than face deportation or be required to apply for legal status from their native countries. But that’s not the half of it. Obama’s generosity is boundless.
To facilitate this twisted scheme, the Department of Homeland Security issued this proposed rule earlier this week intended to implement changes to a waiver program instituted under Barack Obama’s executive action on illegal immigration in 2013. The action, which bypassed congress, created a waiver allowing foreign nationals illegally residing in the U.S. to facilitate the entry of a spouse, children — including their spouses and their children, parents, siblings, or even fiancés, circumventing the normal immigration process if they claim their absence would create an “extreme hardship.”
Family Reunification or Chain Migration is a means of bringing each illegal alien’s entire clan into the United States. Center for Immigration Studies is a good resource. The organization has been addressing this issue and its many ramifications for years.
In 2008, when then-candidate Barack Obama vowed to “fundamentally transform America,” the foolish crowds cheered, He is fulfilling that promise by transforming Americans themselves, into a less white, uneducated, impoverished populace who have no attachment to our history, language or laws. And of greatest importance to Barack Obama, they will be a permanent Democrat voting bloc.
Currently the U.S. issues over 1 million new green cards every year, resulting in approximately 42 million immigrants. Roughly 13% of our population is now foreign-born, up from 4.7% in 1970. States such as New York, California, New Jersey, and Florida are comprised of 20% or more foreign-born, with California checking in at 27%. These numbers are from 2012. Even without any mass immigration bill, the foreign-born population is expected to rise to 60 million within ten years, according to a congressional report. A record 1 in 5 U.S. residents speak a language other than English at home.
That number includes presidential candidate Jeb Bush. “Our grandkids, almost all of them speak Spanish, two of them also speak a little Arabic,” the former Florida governor added, during this Spanish language interview.
