Barack Hussein Obama promised America he would “fundamentally transform” America back in 2008. Was it the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare? Was it new environmental regulations on the coal industry? Was it increased taxes? Was it……….fill in the blank!
Open borders can have different meanings. The Southern border with Mexico is an open border based on the flood of illegal immigrants from Mexico, South America, China and who knows where else.
The federal government is complicit in the illegal immigration fiasco not by ignoring and not enforcing the immigration laws already on the books but by using agencies to do the dirty work Obama plans on doing after the mid-term elections by Executive Amnesty.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Friday threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa. Yes, an open door policy slapping the law right in the face. This is merely the tip of the illegal immigration iceberg. The agency is procuring a printer that can handle able to handle a “surge” of 9 million green cards “to support possible future immigration-reform initiative requirements.”
In an ordinary year approximately 1 million green cards are issued through appropriate channels, however, a “surge” of 9 million in one year can extend out to 34 million over the life of a contract for work permits. This would be a 10-percent increase in the total American population. This is one more ploy by Obama and his Marxist ilk to increase the Democrat voting base. A permanent class of voter beholden to the whims of the Leftists who now own the Democrat Party.
The economics of this fiasco is typically not discussed but with the Left proposing a $15 an hour minimum wage available jobs will become unavailable as they diminish. The “workers” will end up receiving benefits for healthcare, schooling for their children, welfare payments, food stamps all paid for by citizens who pay taxes and further decreasing the pool of available jobs for those out of work and still seeking employment.
A whopping 74% of American citizens want this immigration by fiat to stop. The Obama administration could care less, they intend to steamroll immigration “reform” over the populace and let the chips fall where they may. This has been, and will continue to be a disaster of enormous negative consequence to the United States and we know it today.
A Republican Senate majority for the next two years will not stop this immigration of illegals. The GOP establishment is feckless and for the most part is all in for Obama’s immigration reform as written in the Senate “Gang of 8″ bill supported by Marco Rubio (R-FL), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and John McCain (R-AZ) who all participated in writing and approving this amnesty of illegals legislation. Given the opportunity the coward Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH) would gladly bring it to the floor for a vote and may do so if he receives a super-majority after the November election.
So called Tea Party candidates from 2010 have proved to be intimidated for the most part and judging by their voting records have towed the establishment line being bought out with assignments on committees. The word is already out, continue to fight the establishment in the House and you will suffer the consequences.
