Obama Firm on Vow to Act on Immigration This Year

Washington Post, November 5, 2014

President Barack Obama is standing by his pledge to act on his own to reduce deportations and improve border security by the end of the year. Obama says he will take his own steps despite election results that gave Republicans control of Congress.

He says he prefers congressional action but that he has shown patience and has tried to work in a bipartisan fashion.

Obama says if Congress acts, his executive actions will go away. Republicans say any action will poison relations with the White House.

    NoBama will do ANYTHING he wants.

    Dictators always do…

    • Ohmy!

      Sad, but true. Our President doesn’t feel the need to abide by any of our laws. He’s the king of the U.S.A (in his head), being able to do whatever he wants to do – no-one should stand in his way. If he could be the President of the U.S.A for life, I bet he’d go for it.

  • I still think he’s going to chicken out when it’s time for him to pull the trigger.

    • propagandaoftruth

      He says he prefers congressional action?

      How about opposition controlled congress at least censor him if he continues to flout the law vis-à-vis who gets the visas and amnesty?

      I’d love an impeachment, but why not start by calling him out, putting him on warning and letting the people see how this plays out? Introduce legislation they know he must veto and accuse HIM of not “cooperating” (caving in)?

      That would be nice.

      The GOP might smell blood, see an open jugular…

    • Bossman

      A lot of people are advising him to act big on this issue since Republicans have no plans whatsoever for ever passing comprehensive immigration reform.

      • dukem1

        Screw comprehensive immigration reform!!! At the very least, enforce the laws on the books…and repeal that 1965 law that created the mess we’re in right now!

        • Realist

          “Screw comprehensive immigration reform!!! At the very least, enforce the laws on the books…and repeal that 1965 law that created the mess we’re in right now!”
          Good idea. Not going to happen. The Republicans as always are stupid. The Republicans are terrified of being called racist. They really believe they need minority votes. And big money is behind cheap labor. End of story.

      • JohnEngelman

        Whenever anyone uses the word “reform” you need to ask questions. During an economy of steadily diminishing opportunities one of those questions needs to be: Will I benefit from this “reform?”

        The immigration reform I want includes the apprehension and deportation of illegal aliens, and an end to H1B visas.

        New Zealand has the right immigration policy. You can’t move there unless your presence benefits those who are already New Zealand citizens. Either you have a job lined up in a skill they need but is in short supply, or you have the capital and experience to start a business.

        Liberals expect Uncle Sam to be an international social worker of last resort. Americans need to ask: why do Hispanics want to move here? Why is our standard of living higher?

        We do not have more natural resources than they do. The difference is that we are able to create a viable society, and they are not. Unfortunately, the social dysfunctions they escape from – the crime, the corruption, and the incompetence – are social dysfunctions they bring with them. Those social dysfunctions are innate to them.

        • Max

          I wholeheartedly agree but when you have a clause like: “You can’t move there unless your presence benefits those who are already New Zealand citizens” the immigration supporters will find all manner of reasons why we would “‘benefit” from immigration from everywhere. Right here and now the orthodoxy is that “diversity” alone is a great benefit in itself with no further justification needed.

          • JohnEngelman

            Ask for those justifications. When someone says that a policy is good for the economy, ask “Whose economy?”

        • Bossman

          I generally agree with most of the things you said. Note well that New Zealand has free trade with Australia and nationals from both countries can move freely between the countries. I really don’t understand why the USA should have a universal immigration policy that puts a Canadian in the same line as someone from Mongolia.

          • Max

            The Canadian (if white) will be placed somewhere behind the Mexican, Pakistani, and Sudanese.

      • Mergatroyd

        Why should America and any other White homeland open up its doors to the third world?

        Do you demand your genocidal plan of non-White countries or is it only White countries that you think should be flooded with non-White refugees?

        Why do you believe White children do not have a right to a White homeland?

        Is it only Whites you desire to genocide or do your plans include other races?

        I suspect you are not White and that you agree with White Genocide.

        • Bossman

          White genocide would be the most depressing thing to happen to North America and Europe. What I would like to see happen is that the USA makes it easier for Europeans, Canadians and Latin Americans to enter the country legally as it was before 1965.

    • dukem1

      I don’t…would not surprise me at all if he proclaimed a blanket amnesty for every foreign national in the US…I gave him the benefit of the doubt for a few years – ie, just another AA hire we could get ourselves over…but I have come to the point that he is a guy that hates the USA, and whatever it is the USA once represented….

      And he will spend what’s left of his time in office to destroy what our founders and ancestors created…

      And I feel like a nut-job thinking this way….but 26 months of BHO as CEO?

      No upside seen from here.

  • phorning

    Even Democrat partisan cable talking heads are amazed at how his obstinate he has been regarding the election results. Obama said he has heard the message from the majority of the people who didn’t show up to vote. As if we should set public policy based on low information people who don’t take the civic duty at all seriously.

    • John R

      Yeah, and he has also heard the message from the people who don’t vote; the people who don’t pay taxes; the people who don’t work; the people who don’t obey the law; hell, even from the people who are not even legally in the country in the first place! Everyone but decent hard working patriotic White Americans. Sorry, but this has me fuming.

  • connorhus

    Congress should just withhold all funding to the executive branch.

  • DaveMed

    It’s a win-win for him (and his ilk).

    In a few years, the White vote will not be a major determinant of which candidates are elected. So, why risk upsetting White middle-class voters if demographics will make Whites’ votes obsolete anyway?

    On the other hand… even if he does upset Whites with an amnesty (the plans are already set for this, by the way – check the AmRen stories from the past couple of weeks), it doesn’t really matter, because in 20 years, White outrage will be irrelevant.

    • Mergatroyd

      Good thinking Dave and I have always suspected that is the long-range plan. Demographics will eventually win and there will be no need even consider White America except to the extent to which they can be race-replaced.

      Come to once-Republican California if you want to see what a super-majority Democrat state looks like.

  • superlloyd

    The arrogance of this foreign, muslim interloper is beyond the pale. He is completely bent (in all ways) on the irreparable destruction of a first world country. I hope he is rendered impotent by due process from Congress.

    • NoMosqueHere

      The republicans should tell this muslim creep in no uncertain terms they’ll impeach him should he do executive amnesty.

      • libertarian1234

        I agree, but I’m concerned the GOP with their milk-sop management will pass an amnesty bill themselves to show how “unracist” they are.

        Rush predicted already that the GOP would reverse Reid’s passage that disallowed any opposition on appointments and other matters to show how kind they are and that would melt the hearts of Democrats and make them nicer people.

        It’s hard to believe anybody is that naïve and gullible, but I’m afraid he’s going to be proven right on that score. They’ll be giving up a huge advantage to putting a stop to these crazy flakes, oddballs and misfits
        Obama has been appointing to various offices, especially inundating the judiciary with people who have both feet planted firmly in the air and are closer to mental cases than they are to administrators of the law.

        Just look at the SCOTUS. All the geeks Obama appointed look like something from “Tales from the Crypt”, or “Sesame Street.” And they sound even worse.

        • 1G25

          “It’s hard to believe anybody is that naïve and gullible… .”

          They’re not. They’re part of the same political party. America needs a second political party. Maybe the TEA Party, the one Mitch McConnell said “… needs a punch in the nose.”
          .

          • Juggernaut3000

            Neither major party supports the interests of Whites. Both are for massive non-white immigration, increasing H1-b visas, expansion of the welfare state and never ending war in 3rd world countries.

            We need a third way, a party that is specifically white-centric and is concerned with white rights, like the right to a future, white-only living space and the right not to be dictated to by non-white foreigners. We will have no future as long as we are forced to bow down to foreign marxist dictators.

    • Mergatroyd

      Don’t count on it Lloyd. Many in the GOP, including Mitch McConnell, are on board with the NWO destructive agenda that seeks to end the White race.

      And then there is that guy in the House who keeps on weeping…

    • Juggernaut3000

      It is not fair to place all of the blame on Obama. He’s had a lot of help and this war on Whites started long before he was born.

      He is nothing but a tool used by other, more powerful and stronger forces to destroy white America.

  • Luca

    Let the impeachment hearings begin. The list of his unlawful activities should make short work of it. But only if Republicans have the will to do the peoples’ work.

    • Bossman

      The people’s work is to create jobs and a decent standard of living while keeping the country safe and strong. Nobody benefits by a long drawn-out process of impeachment.

      • Don’t worry. The Republicans won’t have the stomach to impeach the first black president. He comes with an automatic race card that gives him immunity. As to nobody benefiting, you’re wrong. The truth benefits everyone. The truth is Obumunist is a tyrant, acting unconstitutionally in many realms.

      • Mergatroyd

        “the people’s work…”

        The Soviets told “their people” the same thing. “Creating jobs” and a decent standard of living, according to what you and they believe eliminated 66 million, mostly White Christian Russians.

        But then you believe in government – over- all and their plans to genocide the White race.

      • Max

        The government’s “job” is to leave people alone and only have enough police powers to ensure that criminals and antagonistic foreign nations leave American people alone. We were clever enough to create our own jobs and living standards before there was a government.

      • Luca

        Everyone would benefit from an impeachment, no matter the length of time.
        The republicans have been tiptoeing on the edge of a political cliff, if they want to regain a secure footing they need to listen to the American people. Even the loony liberals in Oregon rejected drivers’ licenses for illegals.

        If this tyrant imposes his party agenda on an American public that is sick of foreign invaders, he should have hell to pay for it and the republicans should serve him up on a platter.

        Will it happen? It remains to be seen if they have learned any lessons, abandoned appeasement and gained any testosterone and common sense after having seen the edge of the cliff they are on.

    • Garrett Brown

      Never going to happen.

      • Mergatroyd

        And it’s ridiculous to waste time even contemplating impeachment.

        Who’s gonna do it? Mitch McConnell?

        • Max

          Impeachment proceedings might make Boehner cry.

    “Obama Firm on Vow to Act on Immigration This Year”

    Who has the answer as to why this black miscreant so rabidly pushes amnesty as if it is the most pressing need of all the issues facing the country today?

    Michael Savage does. He said Obama wants it desperately, because he is fixated on the desire to ethnically cleanse whites in this country.

    And, of course, he’s right.

    It’s his way of paying back whitey for what Obama perceives to be all the injustices whites have pressed on non-whites in this hemisphere.

    Why else would he be so intensely dedicated to the issue?

    Nobody but a fanatically driven anti-white racist would want to pursue this issue so badly over and above all other matters.

    He’s planned this long before he was elected, just as everything else, including Obamacare had been planned.

    And the brilliant Harvard graduate said at the press conference that he wants to work in a bipartisan manner with the GOP and that he was determined to issue an edict to approve amnesty on his own.

    Anybody not as brilliant as he is would think somebody would have to be dim-witted to expect people to believe he wants bipartisanship after admitting to taking dictatorial action. How….utterly….dumb.

    • Guest

      Correction: Valerie Jarrett and the Chicongo/Manhattan/Globalizer Mafia who are doing these things.

      Obama is just their sockpuppet.

    • Mergatroyd

      Obama is a front man. He is profoundly stupid and serves to read whatever is put in front of him on a teleprompter and sign whatever he is told to sign. He can ride out the next two years doing what he’s told, protected by the media and those really in the seats of power and retire super-rich in Hawaii. Any and all criticism = racism.

      He’ll even take all the blame while those who stand behind him giving him orders continue their plan of White genocide by flooding White homelands with 3rd world Africans and Haitians. What does he care? He’s got his.

      We elect Republicans and think we’ve won, but they’re beholden to the same power that dictates to Obama.

  • Bossman

    If immigration is all that Republicans care about, then Obama should act big on this issue. He should pull the rug from beneath them. Then they will spend the next two years doing nothing but trying to impeach him. That will be very interesting to watch.

    • Bosstroll, you should know by now the Stupid Party doesn’t have that kind of courage.

      But if they did, and I hope they do if Obama pulls the trigger, then it would do two things:

      1. Make immigration the singular political issue in the country for many months

      2. Put a lot of Democrats and Chamber Pot of Commerce Republicans in the Senate on the spot. Remember, when impeachment goes to the Senate, it’s the functional equivalent of a jury trial, with the Senators being jurors whose votes are on record.

      • JohnEngelman

        Immigration is the kind of issue Republican politicians love to lose on.

        Losing is win win for them. They retain the votes of registered Republican voters, and the political contributions of Republican businessmen who want more immigrants so that they can lower wages.

    • propagandaoftruth

      That’s a great idea. Tie up Obama by impeaching him for two years. How much anti-White mischief could he get away with under those conditions?

      Great suggestion, Jefe.

  • John R

    Of course Obama doesn’t care what the people want. He is a leftover of the radicals of the late sixties, early seventies. This is like his mentor Bill Ayers. He sees himself as a dictator and has contempt for most Americans, especially White people. We and the Republicans must do what we can to stop him from doing even more harm to this once great country.

    • Juggernaut3000

      He takes orders from and does the bidding of those who cover for him, funded his campaigns, destroyed his enemies for him, refuse to vet him, encourage charges of racism at those who criticize him, and have made him fabulously wealthy.

      His refusal to start a war with Iran may be why he was defeated so heavily on Tuesday. Doesn’t matter, those who defeated him are controlled by the same people that control Obama so the agenda remains the same: Massive non-white immigration, both legal and illegal in order to destroy white countries.

      It’s only a matter of time before a war with Iran is fomented, and the Republicans are on board. Don’t sell your munitions stocks, they’re going to soar soon.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    From the article:

    I’m pretty sure I’ll take some actions that some in Congress will not like,’ he said. ‘That’s natural. That’s how Democracy works.

    Figures Obama, a part-time Affirmative Action lecturer on constitutional law thinks this is a democracy.

    Obama doesn’t even know the definition of Democracy and believes signing executive orders is how a “democracy works.” That’s how a dictators works.

    Do us a favor, Obama, go back to the golf course and stay there for the next two years.

    • propagandaoftruth

      He can pay black baby momma’s rents.

    • WR_the_realist

      You could make that same poster for “We were almost bankrupt!” Hillary Clinton, except that all the numbers would be much bigger.

  • SolStans

    I hope he and his ilk meet the same fates as others who opened the gates to the barbarians. People are always telling me history repeats itself, and now I want to see it firsthand.

    • Juggernaut3000

      I hope the same thing, especially about those who supported this unqualified idiot.

      Demographics are not on their side.

  • Tyrants are never restrained by the people. History shows that tyrants must be removed from their positions by revolutionary acts of rebellion.

    In Obama’s case various psychoanalysis of him I’ve read suggest he’s a psychopath with a big toothy white smile. The guy who smiles big while pulling the wings off butterflys.

    He’s both a puppet and a psychopath, though. So opening the borders will please the power elites pulling his strings and his own sick, twisted soul. The question is how to legally freeze and undo his illegal “executive orders.”

    • Ella

      I think Congress has to declare Obama’s executive orders as unconstitutional and take it to the Supreme Court through a lawsuit? I’m not sure if an executive order has ever been overturned in US history, whereas the American voters put this lunatic into office with no credentials.

    • LHathaway

      I tend to make pro black statements (although I’m as afraid of them as anyone), but I have to admit, In Africa, in all of recorded history, only 4 or 5 elected heads of state have ever stepped down from power after a subsequent election. What happens in 2016?

      • Mergatroyd

        Doesn’t matter, Hathaway. Both parties are controlled by the same powerful, well-funded interests that seek to increase immigration from the 3rd world to displace Whites and dispossess us of our homelands.

        To them, we are good for nothing except as cannon fodder for their foolish 3rd world communist wars.

        IOW, neither party represents the interests of White America.

        • LHathaway

          We will see just how interested Obama and his backers are in staying in power. .

          • Juggernaut3000

            What does it matter when they control both sides.

            Our enemy believes the best way to deal with the opposition is to lead it, which they do, or more likely buy it off, threaten it or blackmail it.

            Judge Roberts comes to mind…

  • Bonny Alba

    I was gathering intelligence on the enemy today by listening to NPR. The guest admitted that “income tax reform” means completely different things to Republicans and Democrats. But the immigration enthusiasts are still dishonest about immigration “reform.” The dems/leftists are such liars! It is not immigration reform it is more corruption, wrongdoing, and crime. It is also important to massively reduce or end the legal immigration, too. An immigration moratorium would be wonderful. All working Americans, from engineers to construction workers and service industry workers, are harmed by immigration and H1B visas. They are bringing people with historical grudges and axes to grind as well as people with a wish to seize territory that they claim is theirs, not to mention jihadis and extremist Muslims (which is all Muslims).

    • 1G25

      “An immigration moratorium would be wonderful.”

      Absolutely. My cousin has a PhD in microbiology, lives in Canada. So many Pakis and Indians have been welcomed into that country who will do the same work for 1/2 the salary that she now works in a riding stable.

      • Max

        Canada may be *the* most proudly suicidal nation. It’s hard to know whether it is them or UK. We are accelerating in that direction.

        • Juggernaut3000

          I’d lay money on the UK. It’s far smaller and will be over-run soon with fecund, hostile Muslims who are already calling for Sharia law in parts of traditional England.

          The Native Born English are not reproducing and, as we all know, demographics is destiny. The future of the England does not bode well.

          • Max

            They are really bad but then, they had a generous head start.

    • Mergatroyd

      Why do you think this is?

      Could it be part of the NWO, Communist world-wide anti-White agenda that seeks to displace the White race and wrest our homelands and resources from us?

      Without a homeland, there will be NO Whites. Those non-White fast-breeders with “historical grudges” and “axes to grind” against us will USE THEM when they become the majority. Look no further than South Africa to see OUR fate in a few generations.

  • JohnEngelman

    Republicans will condemn Obama’s efforts to reduce deportations, but they will not do anything of a substantial nature to prevent them, because businessmen want more immigrants, so that they can lower wages.

    • David Ashton

      So what can be done?

      • Mergatroyd

        Secure a White homeland and resources for Whites only so we, and not others, will be in charge of the future of our race.

        If this is OK for the Israelis to preserve their race by deporting Africans, using DNA analysis for immigration, and building walls and concentration camps to hold and then expel illegals, then it is OK for our race too.

        Not a race you say? Then how could DNA be used to keep “others” out of their homeland?

        • Max

          Israel gets special consideration for anything they can hallucinate. They have “a right to exist” don’t you know? That would never fly here especially since we know who is *really* in charge of the federal bureaucracy and State Dept.

          • Juggernaut3000

            I wish more Whites understood this obvious hypocrisy and could see who our true enemy really is, and it ain’t blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, Asians, etc.

            Before it’s too late, that is, and I fear it is already too late.

        • David Ashton

          Israel is not big enough to accommodate and sustain the Jewish population of the world. The whites of the world already have their “homeland” and “resources” in Europe, north America and Australasia, but not yet the political equivalent of Likud.

          • Juggernaut3000

            Europe, North America and Australia are being over-run with quick-breeding non-whites due to the policies of traitorous politicians. White Euros are not breeding enough to replace themselves, indicative of a dying population under enormous stress.

            Demographics is destiny and even if all immigration were halted immediately, the inevitable would happen: Whites become a minority in traditional White homelands. The invaders and their spawn must be expelled, but I don’t see that happening in the foreseeable future, especially as the European and Canadian police states are implementing very strong hate speech laws and control of the Internet.

            Don’t think the Isrealis haven’t thought of that. Israel is guarded with nuclear weapons and has vowed to take down major population centers if they’re attacked.

            Ever heard of the Samson Option?

            In that case, no one wins, but that is the point of the Samson Option.

          • David Ashton

            The Samson Option and Pamela Geller’s opposition to Muslim expansion in the traditional European homelands do not affect my two main points about population space and resources.
            Would the creation of a small homeland for some whites only be politically more practicable than a popular repatriation
            program? Orania, Montana, Finland, Iceland, Tasmania, Tory Island, where do you suggest? And how?

      • JohnEngelman

        Where the elites of both parties are agreed on a policy there will need to be at least 60 percent support for the opposite policy among the electorate.

        According to a survey released by the Pew Research Center October 15 – 20, 2014 71 percent of Americans want illegal immigrants living in the United States to stay.

        According to a survey released by CBS News / New York Times, 50 percent of Americans want illegal immigrants to stay and apply for citizenship. 13 percent of Americans want them to stay, but not apply for citizenship.

        According to a survey released by CBS News / New York Times 51 percent of Americans think President Obama should take action using executive orders on the immigration issue.

        According to a survey released August 20 – 24 by Pew Research Center, 56 percent of Americans think illegal children immigrants should be able to attend school in the United States, 69 percent think they should be able to join their families in the United States, and 51 percent think they should be housed in government facilities in the United States.

        • JohnEngelman
        • Luca

          I could find no data on the Pew website correlating to your dates. I researched topics on immigration stating that Americans are split on the issue of whether deportations would be good or bad, dated Mar 14th, 2014.

          I cannot imagine that 71-percent of Americans actually “want” illegal immigrants to stay. I can’t even imagine that answer coming from American hispanics or Democrats. maybe from raging liberals. Even two days ago the heavily liberal state of Oregon soundly rejected driver’s licenses for illegals. Rather odd behavior from liberals, don’t you think.

          You’re not cherry-picking and paraphrasing statistical results to suit your agenda again are you? That was a rhetorical question, no reply needed.

          • JohnEngelman

            I followed my post with a web address that has not been posted yet. These are the exact words:

            ———–

            Pew Research Center. Oct. 15-20, 2014. N=2,003 adults nationwide. Margin of error ± 2.5. “Which comes closer to your view about how to handle undocumented immigrants who are now living in the U.S.? They should not be allowed to stay in this country legally. OR, There should be a way for them to stay in the country legally, if certain requirements are met.” Options rotated
            2/14: “Which comes closer to your view about how to handle undocumented immigrants who are now living in the U.S.? They should not be allowed to stay in the country legally. There should be a way for those who meet certain requirements to stay in the country legally.”

            NOT stay 25%

            STAY 71 %
            NOT SURE/REFUSED 3%

          • Luca

            Okay, do you want to play dueling polls? Go to YouGov(dot)com. Search illegal aliens, A recent poll July 19 – 21 2014, regarding all those kids coming across the border, only 11% said to let them stay. Only 32% approve of Obama’s handling of immigration and 78% want illegals deported as soon as possible.

            When it comes to polls the wording of the question and the source of the pool of participants is key. Any poll taken by CBS and in NY is suspect. Just as a poll of FoxNews followers or registered republicans would be suspect.

            Another important fact is that “staying in the country” does not denote amnesty nor citizenship , It may also denote that they are frustrated for want of a solution and are deciding that letting them stay with some kind of status is more humane but it’s not something they would truly “want” (your word, not mine, or the pollsters).

            Saying this is something that 71% of Americans “want” is misleading and I still can’t find it on Pew research.

            Okay that report is from Feb, 2014 not Oct. They over-sampled democrats by about 50% vs. republicans. They also conducted the survey in English AND Spanish, so what does that tell you?

            The report data is quite different from your statement of: ” 71 percent of Americans want illegal immigrants living in the United States to stay.”

            Pew: “Nearly two thirds of Americans (73%) say there should be a way for people in the United States illegally to remain in this country IF they meet certain requirements, while just 24% oppose this.”

            This means they are against deporting these people en masse but are agreeable to have them stay, but only if they meet certain requirements. I doubt that 71% of the people want all those welfare cases and criminals to stay and not go home.

            They simply oppose deportation due to the “separating families” propaganda pushed by the Left. Obviously, imposing “certain requirements” is going to eliminate a significant percentage of these people depending on those requirements.

            It also does not specify whether these illegals should be allowed to stay permanently or temporarily.

            Sometimes polls are purposely left vague to get general results or desired results. It’s called “massaging the data”.

            Are you aware of reports stating that Pew is left-leaning? So all of this must be taken with a grain of salt considering there are other polls out there not even remotely reflecting the results produced by Pew.

          • JohnEngelman

            Pew is one of the most credible polling agencies in the world. It neither lies, nor does it ask leading questions. What matters is that there is not overwhelming support for deportation of illegal immigrants. This means that the business community will have its way, and continue to import cheap labor.

          • Luca

            Your last sentence is moot. Businesses must pay various State and Federal minimum wages and can move their operations overseas where people work for $2 a day. Aside from that, under federal law, it is illegal for any employer to hire, recruit or
            refer for a fee any alien not authorized to work in the United States.
            This includes hiring contractors who employ illegal immigrants. There
            are criminal and civil penalties associated with this conduct.

            The overwhelming reason for keeping illegals here is a political maneuver by the Leftists to shore up the Democratic voting base and displace White Americans. Period.

          • JohnEngelman

            Click on pollingreport. It says 71 percent want illegals to stay. The U.S. government is a democracy dominated by a rich plutocracy at the top. Unless at least 60 percent of the electorate disagrees with the plutocracy, the plutocracy gets its way. The plutocracy wants to import low wage labor. It can. It will. The GOP will let it, after pretending to oppose it.

            The Republican Party loves to lose on issues like this.

          • Luca

            Polls are like anuses, everybody’s got one.

            Gallup 6/5-8/14 :

            ..should immigration be kept at its present level, increased or decreased?: Decreased 41%, present level 33%.

            41% want to halt the flow of illegals and 53% want those here dealt with.

            81% worry about illegal immigration to some degree.

            93% want the to stop the flow of illegals and feel it is either extremely, very, or moderately important. Only 7% say it is not that important.

            The Gallup polling shows American want this problem dealt with, that includes border security, E-verify, learning English and processing the people already here. Part of that processing will of course reduce the number of illegals who have committed crimes and will generate money on processing fines,They don’t actually want them here, they want them dealt with humanely.

            It is a much bigger picture than saying Americans “want them here”.

            Don’t forget, Democrats have businesses and invest in them also, they are also the richest party in Washington. According to HuffPo ( a liberal publication) 70% of the top ten richest politicians are Democrats. But you choose to only mention Republicans. Now that’s very revealing isn’t it?

          • JohnEngelman

            The fact that surveys disagree indicates that for most Americans immigration is not a salient issue. On issues where the majority does not strongly disagree with the business community the business community gets its way. The business community wants more job applicants. It does not care where they were born.

    • Mergatroyd

      Obama has not reduced deportations, that is a myth. Just like the employment numbers YOUR government puts out, the numbers are manipulated.

      “They manipulated deportation data to make it appear that the Border Patrol was deporting more illegal immigrants than the Bush administration,” Dobbs said July 1, 2014.

      The Homeland Security secretary had to admit before Congress that was not the case — that, in fact, they were manipulating the numbers.

      Culberson: But under the Obama administration, more than half of those removals that were attributed to ICE are actually a result of Border Patrol arrests that wouldn’t have been counted in prior administrations.

      Johnson: “Correct.”

      http //www politifact com/punditfact/statements/2014/jul/15/lou-dobbs/lou-dobbs-obama-administration-manipulated-deporta/

      Just as unemployment numbers and the CPI index are no longer counted as they were before this administration.

      • DougDeGrave

        Same goes for vote counting.

    • Luca

      With so many minimum wage laws and the ability of businesses to move operations overseas to avoid taxes, EPA regulations and unions, your logic is critically flawed.

      There was a time when we had plenty of jobs and then your statement would bear some elements of truth. Now, it’s all about outnumbering Whites and increasing the Democratic voters, anything else is a side-effect.

      • JohnEngelman

        There are ways to make it difficult for corporations to move production to other countries. To start with we can repeal NAFTA.

        • Luca

          What could happen, has no bearing on what has been happening in regards to my pointing out that your statement and logic are flawed.

          Another way to make it difficult for corporations to move operations overseas would be to reduce the highest corporate tax rate in the world and loosen up on EPA overkill.

  • IstvanIN

    NO president should have ever been allowed to rule by executive order, ever.

    • David Ashton

      Obama himself is a clear and present danger.

      • Mergatroyd

        Obama is an idiot, a useful idiot. Ever wonder why his school records and test scores are sealed? He spent a million dollars on lawyers to make sure they stayed sealed. We have the records of every other president.

        Those behind sock-puppet Obama are the ones who are dangerous. Extremely dangerous.

        • Max

          He spent more than $4 million but who’s counting?

          • DougDeGrave

            In that case, let’s insist it’s 6 MILLION then!

      • Juggernaut3000

        Obama is no danger; those who give him his orders, however are.

        • David Ashton

          Point taken.

  • WR_the_realist

    The Republicans say that Obama giving a massive amnesty executive order will poison relations with the White House. Well, will the Republicans do anything more useful than whine? Will they dare try to impeach Dear Leader?

    • Mergatroyd

      Impeachment will never happen.

  • Whitesneedtobebrave

    Obama will never give up pandering to anti American foreigners to destroy America.

    • A Freespeechzone

      Neither will most Republicans……I wish I was wrong….

      • Whitesneedtobebrave

        Sadly you are right. McCain and Rubio come to mind.

  • Evette Coutier

    More thug politics. Obama is blackmailing republicans with a non-constitutional overstep and the republicans are spineless enough to let him bully them.

    • Mergatroyd

      He doesn’t have to blackmail republicans because they have the exact same agenda and are funded and supported by the exact same people.

  • Raydonn

    He seems to desire a second ‘civil’ war……………………

    • 1G25

      The more I think about it, so do I.

      America needs an enema.

      • Malgus

        Lots of folks feeling that way these days…

        Most of the folks I know, their reaction is “Bring it!”

        Careful what you ask for… you might get it.

        • 1G25

          I don’t want it. I want the America I grew up in. There are other ways to acquire that.

          First, stringent voter qualifications – you don’t pull an oar, you don’t get to steer the ship. Or, simply, secession away from the blue states.

          Etcetera – but before I’d see America turn into a Third World country, I’d pick up a rifle. I volunteered for Viet Nam… I’ll damn sure volunteer for Old America.

          • Malgus

            My friend, I truly understand your feelings.

            I volunteered as well. Nam was over by the time I went active duty, but all our platoon sergeants, first sergeants, SMG, etc, were all Nam Vets, and they taught us well. Much respect. I ended up making it a career.

            I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the America you – and to some extent, I grew up in – is gone. It was murdered some time ago, but the old girl keeps on chugging along on sheer momentum…

            Homogenous nations do not require ever-increasing heaps of laws designed to restrict freedom and force people to do that which they do not want to do. Heterogeneous nations do. I saw a list of nations some years ago. The more homogenous the nation, the more at peace it is. As the percentage of “other” rises, the greater the conflict. The magic number seems to be about 40%. Once the number of “others” reaches that percentage, barring the iron grip of a dictator or a totalitarian government to force peace, the country will devolve into civil war.

            The changes that you and I would back to save some bit of the Old Republic will never be implemented. The courage and will to do what must be done is just not there. Those in power are the worst sort of craven little cowards – the kind who will gladly send others to do their bidding, but would never dirty their hands or risk their own precious skin doing something themselves…

            Secession is also a non-starter, as the elites in Mordor want what all those in power want – to maintain their power, increase it if possible and to stay in power as long as they can.

            Which means that if there is a serious effort at secession, those in Mordor will act in their own best interests and dispatch their minions to “bring us back into the fold”, whether we want to go or not… same as last time.

            What sets it off could be anything, but if I were a betting man, my money would be on an economic implosion. Part of me feels the same as you: “It’s about time! Let’s settle this once and for all.” Another part knows what happened last time – between 600,000 to 700,000 combat deaths, hundreds of thousands civilians dead from starvation, privation, murder, suicide, sickness, disease… huge swathes of the South destroyed, the economy destroyed for a generation or more. Extrapolate that to today…

            Still, I’d rather be poor, ragged and free, rather than the alternative…

            Excellent post, fellow American.

            As is said below the Rio Grande,

            “Mejor a morir sobre sus pies que vivvir sobre las rodillas.”

            Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

            And, BTW, the South is not the 1/4 of the population as it was, nor is it 95% agricultural. Certain segments of the blue states can freeze in the dark if the good ole boys take it into their minds to blow thirty or so major pipelines.

            Best –

    #1 Close the boarder.
    #2 then discuss the “Invasion Reform”.

  • Ohmy!

    Every country has immigration laws. Why does our President want to break (ignore) these laws that exist for a logical reason. We need to take care of our own people, not illegal aliens who come in uninvited. If someone wants to enter the U.S.A, they can do so by applying for a visa, going through the legal channels in their own country. Patience is not a virtue held by many illegal aliens. They want to be able to do what they want to do – now!
