President Presses Amnesty

Cartoon by Mike Lester as found at 7/1/10


A Friday, July 2, 2010 USA Today Newspaper article, “Obama: Move forward on immigration,” records Senator Oren Hatch (R-UT) as saying that the first order of business in regard to immigration is a focus on securing the borders. Hatch states, “When the house is on fire, you don’t try to fix the plumbing. … Hardened criminals, gangs, drug dealers and human traffickers are crossing the border.” Add to that list, Islamic terrorists, though the government is loath to recognize or to mouth those dreaded words regarding those beasts. That is one big problem with the Left’s political correctness gig, denial of reality.

Anyway, I agree with Hatch and other conservatives and Tea Party participants and others who want to protect and preserve the American way of life. We must first secure our borders. We must enforce our existing laws. We must punish employers and illegal aliens who flaunt the law. We do not need any additional laws. What we need is the backbone and the will to do what needs to be done. It is foolish to create another 2,000 page law that commit more money to a problem that calls for a simple straightforward solution: close the borders.

Why not use some of that wasteful stimulus money to fund a wall, border patrol, airplanes, etc. to help secure the border? Is that too practical? Mr. President, you say it might work, and run your chances to get Amnesty. Whose side are you on anyway, Mr. President?

We did not need the healthcare redo that was passed; we do not need the financial ‘reform’ if it does not include Fannie May and Freddie Mac. And we certainly do not need Amnesty. We need jobs, Mr. President. We need to plug the oil leak. We need more, not less oil drilling. We need to secure our borders first and foremost.
Once the borders are secured (LOL), then the current immigration laws should be enforced to the full extent of the law. They have not been enforced for a very long time. Go after the businesses who hire illegals and fine and jail them. Go after the illegals and begin the process of deportation, especially for those that commit additional crimes besides illegal entry.

In his speech the President tried to tie the positives associated with immigration in building our nation, but ignored the fact that there is a distinction between legal immigration, which the majority of previous immigration occurred and illegal immigration, what we have now streaming in from the south and the north. The President is disingenuous when he does this. No, he is deceitful. He will stoop to no ends to get what he wants. Apparently the end – socialistic global Utopian society – justifies the means.
In an attempt to give the illusion that there is more support for Amnesty than the radical Democratic leadership the President’s backers arranged for people such as National Association of Evangelical President Leith Anderson in support of the Presidents immigration 'reform' to speak at the news conference. Anderson is the man who permitted Richard Cizek to run around America on behalf of the NAE touting creation care, poo pooing homosexuality and abortion.

Cizek resigned after the word of his interview with NPR went viral. Anderson does not speak for me and I imagine few other conservative Christians.


  1. Unfortunately, the border cannot be secured. It's too damn long!

    Illegal immigration is an insoluble problem.

  2. Counter -

    I disagree. Both Bush and Barack were negligent in securing our borders.

    If we can put a man on the moon. If we can expand healthcare to cover a supposed 30 million more persons. If we can spend nearly a trillion dollars on a wasteful, useless Stimulus Bill. We certainly CAN secure our porous borders.

    Illegal immigration can be solved! First, secure the borders. Second, enfrore the existing immigration laws.

    It is a lack of will that must be overcome. The President chooses to do nothing!
