Obama expands executive action for illegals

When is enough, enough?

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.

When is enough, enough?

    Republican presidential candidates such as Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are intent on pushing amnesty for illegals. They both sound as if we have no legal immigration system. If either of them win the GOP nomination, we might as well resolve ourselves to a continuation of the Obama administration.

    “Since it [DHS] was established in 2002, our security has lessened and our sovereign border has become meaningless.”

    I remember 2002 well. The country was united after 911 like it had not been since WWII. American flags were flying from automobiles. Patriotism was high. America was focused on a radical Islam enemy.

    It was perfect cover for George W. Bush, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Republican-controlled Congress to set forth a plan to flood America with millions of illegal aliens. A 2006 Bear Stearns report estimated over 9 million Mexican illegal aliens entered the U.S. between 2001 and 2006.

    With the threat of terrorism and seemingly increasing Mexican signage, chatter, and crime, many in the country ‘noticed’ and began pressuring D.C. to seal the Mexican border. Four years later – after the Washington cartel thought the gas tank was full – the Republican congress responded with the Secure Fence Act of 2006. But almost simultaneously they were plotting a massive amnesty to protect the flood of cheap labor they had admitted while America was distracted.

    The amnesty drive failed under protest, and six months later the Secure Fence Act was defunded in December 2007. Then the GOP elite put up their head amnesty auctioneer John McCain as the presidential nominee – with the premonition he would lose – even though McCain had been labeled “the luckiest man in politics.” Was it worth the risk of turning the White House over to Democrats? It was; because they knew Democrats would gladly carry on their plot of legalization and cheap labor permanence – and they delivered ten-fold.

    IMO, this is how history books will interpret the downfall of America began. Theoretically we have one last chance to “alter” history, but is it now too late? A lot of people think it is.

      ZOO,
      An excellent assessment of the sad state of affairs we are now mired in. Our members of congress are pathetically aiding and abetting this criminality waged against American citizens by caring more about their Chamber of Commerce campaign donors than they do about us.

      AZ Congressmen Gosar, Salmon and Schweikert jointly wrote a disgustingly bogus column for, and printed in, the amnesty promoting Arizona Republic. It began with these words, “America is a nation of immigrants.”

      They talk about the USA being “a melting pot.” Two clarifications are needed. First, America is a nation of CITIZENS! Actual “immigrants” are those are the ones who follow the law and enter this country LEGALLY. For generations, real “immigrants” came through and were processed at Ellis Island. They gratefully became acclimated Americans, understanding that a common language (English) and education were the route to achieving success for themselves and their children. Not so today. Illegals sneak into our country and want us to adapt to their culture and language. (I had to learn Spanish to keep the job I’ve had for 14 years! Attendance in the classes was mandated.) Too often these fake “immigrants” who need to be accurately identified as “illegal aliens,” (which has become taboo through the imposition of political correctness) turn our neighborhoods into barrios and their children into ESL learners, by speaking exclusively in Spanish and making English their second language. The entire premise of the joint column is slathered in BS! After reading that column, my wife and I decided our congressman would never again get out votes. He’ll continue to get elected without them, and likely will never miss them, but we have the satisfaction of not furthering this garbage being thrown at us by squish Republicrats, cloaking themselves as conservatives.

        U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar was so proud of his co-involvement in the deception loaded op-ed, titled, “What immigration reform must entail,” that he had the piece (loaded with unenforceable blather) prominently displayed on his congressional website. It’s no longer there among the host of others. He obviously realized it wasn’t a wise move this close to an election.
