@RedShirt:"You remind Congress that they have the power to provide for
calling forth the Militia..."And just what will the militia be
doing at the border? I can guarantee they won't be turning illegals back
at the border. Immigration is a federal issue. And our federal president,
Barack Hussein Obama, has decided to let illegal immigrants come on in where he
will be granting eventual amnesty. Of course, to do this the
government will hire a lawyer for each illegal and pay for an immigration judge
to see if they can qualify as legal and if they could use some food stamps and
other government handouts. Nancy Pelosi will likely pitch in and help Obama get
the illegals legalized and on the government dole.Let's hope
China has some more cash that we can borrow to pay for all this.
To "Flashback" there is a simple solution. You remind Congress that
they have the power "To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the
Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions." Call this a
need for aid to execute the laws of the US or call it an invasion, either way
this could be solved in about 15 minutes without having to do anything.A few years ago when the Army Engineers were building part of the fence the
Mexicans were afraid to come near them because they thought the military was
armed. Imagine how afraid they would be if the military was actually armed.Another thing this would accomplish would be to show just how dangerous
the drug lords are in Mexico. It wouldn't take long before we heard of gun
battles going on along the drug routes.
@Flashback:"Let's secure the border first."In the
first place, the border can never be secured. Besides, no one seems to know
what it means to secure the border. One would think securing the border meant
no one, without permission, gets to cross.But, that Ain't the
way it works. Many illegals cross the Rio Grande River which was supposed to be
a natural barrier. But, we see now that border agents are not turning away
those crossing the river... or any other place for that matter. Instead, the
agents take them into custody and bus them to government facilities where
they're fed and housed at the American taxpayer expense.They
are then bussed or flown by plane to the next-of-kin or anyone else who will
take them... again at the American taxpayer expense... to await a court date
where an immigration judge will hear their case. The backlog for such hearings
is several years out. And eighty-five percent never show up for their
hearing.In the mean time, the illegals apply for drivers'
licenses and jobs. Then, they claim their American and never get deported.
What demands?Just send them back!Nothing difficult about
FT,polls suggest you are incorrectPresident Barack Obama is
the worst president since World War II, according to a plurality of voters in a
new poll published Wednesday July 2, 2014.The Quinnipiac University
survey found 33% of American voters named Obama as the worst while 28% named his
predecessor, George W. Bush."Over the span of 69 years of
American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with
President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel," assistant
director Malloy of the Poll, said.Richard Nixon, received only 13%
of the vote and Jimmy Carter scored 8%. None of the remaining eight presidents
received more than 3%.Asked about the 2012 presidential race, 45% of
respondents said the country would be better off if the Republican nominee, Mitt
Romney, had won. Slightly less — 38% — said the country would be
worse off under a President Romney."Would Mitt have been a
better fit?" Malloy asked. "More voters in hindsight say yes."
The GOP is the gift that keeps giving elections to the libs. Whether it's
true or not, the war on woman and their inter-party quibbling on immigration has
convinced the majority of Americans they can not lead. Lations and women
overwhelming went Democrat in the last election and it appears they'll do
it again. For all the Ostrich Conservatives out there do the math. You
can't win a national election without more support from woman and
minorities. You're going to lose again.
Let's secure the border first. I propose that the U.S. Army would be an
excellent force to patrol the border. But then some would say that would be
illegal. Yea, whatever. They wouldn't be arresting anyone, they'd be
keeping them from coming in. The next time a Mexican Army helicopter or jeep
that comes over the border shooting at Americans gets shot down or blown to
smithereens. Since we are no longer using the Army, putting them on the border
would be a good thing. Just embed some Border Patrol agents with them to arrest
the law breakers. The Army's job is to defend our country. Who said they
have to do it overseas? The current wave of illegal immigration is a threat to
the freedom of the U.S. Let the Army defend it. It also might make the drug
cartels think twice.
The hard core truth is about La Raza and other radical organizations is that
they want a Spanish speaking America first, and they want to get rid of
Euro/Western culture here completely. America, along with Canada, are the only
two English speaking countries in the Western Hemisphere. And the Hispanic
radicals want to change that. Take a look at Southern California. Many ATM
machines have Spanish as first choice, and English as the 2nd. And do we really
believe that the illegals want to learn English? In many places, it would do
them no good, as the entire community and workforce speaks Spannish. This is
what is going on. A cultural takeover. And some leaders in the Latino
community have as much as admitted it. In Spanish.
Ironically, Obama threatens to be a law unto himself at the very time his
previous fiats have resulted in the current crisis at the border.Children,
some under the age of TWO, are left at the border. They come here without their
parents because OBAMA created the deferred action program and these kids want to
be DREAMers, too.You need more than a pen and a cell phone to enact laws
here, Mr. President. In fact, the president is supposed to execute the laws
passed by Congress. How about some enforcement?
All that needs to be done is to deport all illegal aliens regardless of which
country they came here from and to fine those who have employed as specified by
our current laws. The failure of his predecessors to fully enforce the current
laws is no excuse for President Obama to ignore the laws up to this point and to
continue to do so.
His political debts are coming calling, his political debtors want their due.
Watch what happens next, Executive order after Executive Order, he promised them
results for votes, they voted now they want results.
You can mince words, mealy-mouth around forever, and continue to complicate the
obvious . . . but the simple truth is that we are continuing to be
systematically invaded by miscellaneous unaccounted populations from all over
the world. Once they get into Mexico and have help from the Mexican government,
the cartels, the drug traffickers, the human traffickers, etc., they're
well on their way to exploitation, victimization, and invasion. By
communicating the policies advocated by the cheap-labor lobby and the
cheap-liberal-constituency, many in the administration, the union thugs, and
other cronies are causing serious harm to the people trying to get here, as well
as those who already reside here. It's a total recipe for more disaster,
and it's not nuclear physics . . . it's simple and it's criminal.
Don't overlook who is writing this article. Go to the Drudge report for
the truth about the conditions of these immigration camps, one of which is at
Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.
The AFL-CIO is an international union, they no longer support the American
worker.The House passed more immigration bills this year than the
Senate, but Harry Reid never let them come to the Senate floor. Congress has
tried to pass laws, but they are not the laws Obama wants. Records
show the Administration knew the surge at the border was coming and did nothing
to stop it. On January 29, 2014, the federal government posted an advertisement
seeking bids for a vendor to contract to handle 65,000 ‘Unaccompanied
Alien Children’ crossing the southern border. This raises serious
questions.--Senate Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-AlaI think the American
people have been set up to accept another amnesty, and he's using children
to do it.
Note to Obama: It's not that difficult... You don't need another $2
billion. You don't need more border agents. You don't need more
immigration judges. Just load the illegals on a bus (or plane) and ship them
back to the Mexican border. Let Mexico decide what do do with them. Stop being
wimp letting our neighbors to the south dictate what our immigration laws will
YOUR voice counts.If you haven't already done it - please
write/call/email your elected representatives to let them know how YOU feel
about illegal alien trespassing.The amnesty advocates are putting
BIG MONEY into selling the American middle class a "bag of nonsense".
The Chamber of Commerce, who have DEEP pockets, are doing their best to get the
ear of Congresspersons. Zuckerberg (the facebook billionaire)thinks he
shouldn't have to pay American college graduates the going wage rate for 2
or 3 college degrees. He thinks he should bring in workers form India or China
and have their American counterparts train them, then FIRE the American workers.
Of course, Orrin (EVERYTHING has a price)Hatch is echoing that same
nonsense.There is NO shortage of STEM graduates - what there is is a
shortage of employers who want to pay their LEGAL employees a fair wage!The freebies we have been supplying to illegal trespassers will
quadruple in the next 5 yrs. if we don't get the invasion stopped. They
(illegal trespassers)WILL destroy the middle class. There is no way the system
can absorb that many new (skilled or unskilled)workers.Just enforce
the law - its NOT "rocket science"!
We do not need to "stem deportations." We need to INCREASE deportations
until illegal aliens get the message that they cannot come here and stay. They
cannot come here and work until such time as the politicians grant another
amnesty.The latest magnet is an awful situation involving children.
Let's stop encouraging that by cracking down on deportations.
Build the wall, arm it, deport all illegals, create efficient legal entry, set
minimum standards for language competency and end the endless welfare state.
These folks can come here legally and orderly. This is America, we have laws and
order here. There is opportunity for these folks to do it the right way. We must
stop this chaos, things will never get better for them unless it is done with
law and order!
Interdictions at the border are NOT deportations – deportations have NOT
increased under this misadministration."Tens of thousands of
young children are being exploited and are being put at great danger “
Kerry said. The children dying at the border (or before they get there) are the
responsibility of the BO misadministration and their supporters who are
screaming “WE ARE OFFERING AMNESTY” to central America.
as with every mess we face - Barack created this one by his lawless executive
orders which gave the invite to all who wanted to come ...to just come and we
will take them. Now we are facing a train wreck because of that insane decision.
This is a political move that will work again.
This makes no sense. The AFL-CIO is a union that is supposed to protect American
jobs, not jeopardize them. With the economy still struggling so much, why would
they or anyone else lawfully here in this country want to give out millions more
work permits when there currently aren't enough jobs to go around for those
legally here? It would be a different issue if we had full employment. But
we're not even close to that point. The more rewards given to
those who break our laws, the more incentive there is for others to also break
our laws. It's not rocket science. Reward law-breaking and more
law-breaking will happen. Soon, things will be totally out of control. They are
approaching that point already and with devastating results. There are reasons
why this is the slowest and worst recession recovery in history. Foreigners
illegally stealing American jobs is a major part of that. And yet this group
wants to legitimize such actions. Pathetic. I sincerely hope and
pray no one in Washington DC is stupid and/or gullible enough to go along with
this fringe group's demands.
The president keeps chiding Congress for not doing their job. And yet he still
hasn't secured the border, which he earlier pledged to do and is actually
required to do under current immigration law. Hopefully, he will not cow-toe to
this fringe lobby group who is demanding things that will hurt American workers
and especially those currently unemployed. Giving work permits to
millions here illegally will make unemployment for American citizens that much
worse. There are already not enough jobs available for those wanting them,
without allowing trespassers from outside our country to come in and compete for
those same jobs. It would make no sense at all. There is no sensible
reason to grant amnesty to lawbreakers, just because they've been getting
away with it for certain length of time. That is in essence saying that the
longer you get away with breaking out laws, the more will be your reward... up
to and including citizenship. Ridiculous. Before even considering
passing any new immigration laws, the president and Congress need to show a real
resolve for adhering to current immigration laws including maintaining a secure
border and deporting lawbreakers in a timely manner.
Go secure the border barack and send illegal Mexicans back to Mexico
Obama faced "...demands for bold action to stem deportations..."?Obama already has ended most deportations. That is a major reason for
the sudden increase in unaccompanied minors coming here illegally.Reports today indicate 70% of the Border Patrol is not patrolling borders, but
rather is baby-sitting illegal children. Obama asked for an additional $2
billion for border patrol funding, but you can be sure it is not to secure the
borders, but to provide more baby sitters and bus and plane tickets to send
these kids (and other illegals) anywhere but home.The world has
turned upside down, and this is as if bank robbers are complaining that banks do
not give them enough money. And, the banks apologize and put out more money
earmarked exclusively for bank robbers.
