Skip to comments.Obama's Immigration Plan: Expedite 11 Million Illegal Immigrants to Citizenship
Posted on 01/29/2013 9:26:33 PM PST by Kaslin
President Obama has wrapped up his $1.6 million
campaign event immigration reform speech in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"Now is the time for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform," Obama said.
Piggybacking off of a bipartisan immigration reform plan presented by eight Senators yesterday, Obama called on Congress to quickly come up with legislation.
"We can't allow immigration reform to get bogged down in endless debate," Obama said. "For the first time in years, Republicans and Democrats seem ready to attack this problem together."
Although Obama focused on further enforcement as a top priority for reform, he stressed the need to expedite 11 million illegal immigrants away from the shadows and into American society as citizens, a position bound to put the country into another post-1986 amnesty situation.
Obama wants to study the fine print of legislation once it is written, but administration officials were quick to say the president objects to linking an earned pathway to citizenship to enforcement or border security triggers, a contingency concept included in the bipartisan “principles” outlined Monday by pro-reform senators who have been dubbed the “immigration eight.” Immigration enforcement goals have already been met by the administration, the officials said, and any new triggers or thresholds set by law would create unnecessary obstacles to those seeking legal status.
Obama warned if Congress fails to enact its own immigration reform, he'll send up his own bill "and insist they vote on it right away," while cautioning against the emotion of ongoing debate and an "us vs. them" mentality.
"The closer we get, the more emotional this debate is going to become," Obama said. "Immigration has always been an issue that inflames passions."
Republican Senator Marco Rubio has said he will oppose legislation that puts the Green Card process before border enforcement and security.
Yep, let’s make citizens of millions of criminals. After all they are illegal thus making them criminals.
Hell, let them bring their families ... no, no ... let them bring their extended families ... bring all of Mexico north, give them welfare and free medical and toss in a collage education while we are at it.
Why not, it is all on our dime.
Thank you OBAMA, you socialist ass.
11 million new Dimocrats. At least one of them needs to become a Republic to replace me. I outta there!
Why is he doing this just for votes? I don’t get it
Give the left NOTHING. Compromise got us where we are now. Just as in the gun control effort now is not only the time to say no more territory will be sacrificed for a false peace -now is the time to say less territory -now is the time to reclaim territory.
yeppers sign em up so 11 mil more can rape the American worker!
One thing for sure no need for dead voters in the future to elect your next
But the dead will still vote! Apocalypse? It’s here!
No need to wait! The Savoir has arrived!
He is in his last term as President so votes are not his concern. Serfs are his concern.
His plan being weaker than theirs, will perhaps push Rubio and McCain to not support it.
Rubio has already called Obama's plan 'weak'. That is a good sign.
So, hopefully Obama will bring down the deal with his presence.
He wants them now to be ready to vote for 2014, and finish the GOP run House and get a Dem trifecta in DC.
They won’t enforce the laws we have now, so what makes Republicans think that Obama will enforce any new law?
If every illegal achieved normalized status tomorrow a black market for new illegals would immediately be born.
Many illegals have no interest in obtaining citizenship; they only come to America to earn money then go home.
There will NEVER be a secure border in the south. Illegals will not cross ANY border unless there is something on the other side to entice them. Mandatory E-verify will force millions to return home, and it costs NOTHING.
Sometimes the best thing to do is to do nothing. Let the libs scream; KEEP THE LOW INFORMATION LATINOS OUT OF THE VOTING BOOTH>>> OMG>
..... and right into the voting booth.
Only it isn't 11,000,000, Katie dear. Think more like 30,000,000. Okay?
We're talking Democrat presidents for the next 200 years.
He obviously doesn't need the votes as there is no shortage of the dead and the lawless to manifest at the polls.
It's simply that he is the Destroyer. The vindictive, narcissistic control-freak sociopath types have this thing for paying back their victims for every perceived slight.
America is on the verge of being that poor woman at the crime scene who was bludgeoned and mutilated to death. The message to investigators being that the attacker knew the victim, and despised her with a raging passion.
That type of criminal would be too preoccupied to say, wipe a fly off of his forehead.
Don't be too sure of that. If he gets the House back next year, you could be looking at a repealer of the 22nd Amendment so Obama could serve basically for life.
He is doing it to make himself legal.
Obama likes to work behind the scenes; he screwed Hillary at the caucuses, so he might try to build on that by calling a constitutional convention to basically rewrite the Constitution -- removing the checks and balances and turning America into a one-party Communist tyranny -- and then use skanky ACORN politicking to get the new constitution "ratified", Obozo's way.
Something like that.
Executive orders seem to be working of Obamass, why not for this. Declare himself as president for life ... been done in other countries.
This from a man who has been given so many opportunities. Why do so many feel so slighted and bullied etc. that they feel they have the right to wreck others lives. I do not understand his mentality and frankly he scares me. I just want to be left alone I do not wish to ruled by him or any of the other fools at the helm. I can not even say what I really think about him. When I saw the many photos of flies on him the first thing I thought of was the Amityville Horror that is just bizarre.
It is as if the republicans are made out of the same
cloth. Why don’t they stop him why are they letting him get away with all of these things. I know they only control the House but there must be another mechanism otherwise how can you topple a corrupt government it just seems like we are doomed if someone will not act.
