    There are amble valid reasons to question the current Senate-passed immigration reform proposal. And the list keeps growing. If the reason of Obama's professional, ethically related actions carries any weight, then everything done that has been associated with him, should be delayed. His conduct has been very suspect and controversial for quite some time. And almost every week there are new disclosures of administration scandals that come to light. All of this after a campaign promise to be the most open and visible administration in history. Wow, is it proving to be anything but!

    There seems to be a growing number of Obama voters that now wish they hadn't been. They are not getting what they expected and were promised. While on the other hand, there are many of us that aren't really all that surprised, though still disappointed in all the broken promises.

    The elites are effectively lawless, as Obama amply demonstrates -- they can do what ever the want with no consequence. Foreigners are favored by them for cheap labor (greater profits for the 1%) so they get a pass on breaking laws also. The average US citizen is another story, as laws are enforced vehemently on them -- hence the US with 25% of worlds prisoners with only 5% of population.

    A greater point is why do we even need to import 40 million more foreigners when we already have 20 million citizens without work? The Senate's immigration bill will destroy this nation with ever lower wages and ever higher unemployment, while the 1% walk away with ever greater profits from the imported cheap labor, both skilled and unskilled (H1B visas). The US has the most liberal immigration of any nation already, and this has led to the dire economy and mass unemployment we have now, and we want to increase the problems just so the rich can get richer? How did this country, founded on principles of freedom, get so corrupt and oppressive?

    It is quite clear that selective enforcement (or better-said NON-enforcement) is the way the game is played.
    Obama has shown that in spades. Take worksite raids. Obama simply decided NOT to do them...or No-match letters...or 287g programs.
    Instead he wrote an order and required new deportation hearings for 300,000 people who had already been through the BIA courts.
    Obviously, enforcement is a long-standing problem when one third of all foreign-born are here illegally.
    Confidence level is LOW.
