The Obama Administration has announced Obama is making a revamping of the immigration bill a priority to push through by the end of 2009. He promises to find a way to make illegal immigrants legal. Read about it below and see photos and a video.
The Obama Administration is steamrolling its way through legislation, policy changes and revamping pretty much everything in American culture. This evening we learn that The New York Times will have a page one lead story on an announcement coming out of the White House that Obama is planning to deal with the United States immigration system by the end of this year. Its being reported that the plan is to find a path for illegal immigrants to become legal.
Mr. Obama will frame the new effort — likely to rouse passions on all sides of the highly divisive issue — as “policy reform that controls immigration and makes it an orderly system,” said the official, Cecilia Muñoz, deputy assistant to the president and director of intergovernmental affairs in the White House.
Mr. Obama plans to speak publicly about the issue in May, administration officials said, and over the summer he will convene working groups, including lawmakers from both parties and a range of immigration groups, to begin discussing possible legislation for as early as this fall.
Of course, it should go without saying, that there IS a path for legal immigration in the United States. After all, America is a nation of immigrants for the most part. The Obama Administration would have us believe that before him, there was no way someone crossing the border illegally could become a legal American immigrant. Like, you know, maybe standing in line, filling out papers, getting green cards like everybody else does.
The pressure from the left, who now have their sticky chubby little fingers on the sources of power throughout the United States. Therefore, our border patrol agents and border communities are loathe to enforce the laws that are currently in place to prevent a free for all on the borders.
Obama’s spokesperson, Cecilia Munoz, director of the White House’s intergovernmental affairs, states that the President wants to make immigration an ‘orderly system’. I would think that would be quite simple. Enforce immigrations laws, require people to go through the proper channels to immigrate to the United States and the entire situation will become more orderly.
This is, of course, a controversial issue that is chock full of strong emotions on both sides. Therefore, Obama promises Americans that illegal immigrants won’t be taking American jobs during this time of increasingly high unemployment rates. Instead, he says, it’ll bring those already here ‘out of the shadows’. That basically means that you shouldn’t believe your own common sense, just believe what he tells you to believe.
That’s all well and good, but what it really does is ensure the Hispanic vote for Obama during the next election cycle. Is that cynical of me? Perhaps. But lets look at the express train of legislation this White House is pushing on the American people.
The outrageously enormous, unseemly, pork-filled ’stimulus bill’ that was pushed through immediately after Obama’s inauguration. This debt is deepening a recession, incurring unimaginable national debt and breaking the backs of the American worker, his children and grandchildren. Why would Obama (or Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, George Soros) put such a burden on the American people? The most obvious answer to a question is usually the right answer. In this case, the most obvious answer is that he really is a Marxist and that by breaking the American Dream (aka: the ability to profit from your own labors), then he makes more and more people dependent on the federal government. As more people become dependent on the federal government, the centralized government has more power and control over the people. At that point, only the elite will have wealth and the people will be enslaved by the government.
Then we have to ask ourselves about the odd election cycles that never finish. Take the Minnesota Senatorial race that seems to never end. There’s also the odd situation concerning Ted Stevens in Alaska. First he’s indicted, just long enough for him to lose the Alaskan Senate seat, then he’s not indicted. Dare we wonder if there’s some electoral hankie-pankie going on? When the democrats have unfettered power, then what is one to think? For them to have the majorities they need in the Senate, then they have to do what they have to do.
Another important aspect of this is to do it early and quick, counting on the notoriously short memories of the American people. No one thinks any of this will be remembered by the time there’s another election.
All of these events point to one thing and that’s solidifying the power base of the democratic party. Particularly, the power base of those who finance the leaders of the democratic party.
Apparently, consolidating power among this small group of elites is more important than seeing to the security of our nation. Obama has yet to respond to last week’s North Korean missile test or the first pirate attack on an American ship since 1794. He’s still thinking about how to respond to those, while the North Koreans are preparing for another missile firing and laughing at us and there is a hostage situation, even as I type this, in the seas off the coast of Somalia.
He doesn’t have time to address those threats to our country, but he has time to unravel our government and guarantee his own power.
It seems that, come the next election, no one should be elected who WANTS to serve as a Representative, has previously served or who can afford to campaign for an office.
