Obama Moving Forward on Amnesty for 11 Million Illegal Aliens


Who’s up for legalizing 11 million illegal aliens during a period of massive unemployment for Americans? The same guy who’s keeping them unemployed. And he will succeed if enough Congressional Republicans are stupid enough to commit political suicide by letting him do it.

Obama plans to push Congress to move quickly in the coming months on an ambitious overhaul of the immigration system that would include a path to citizenship for most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, senior administration officials and lawmakers said last week.

Mr. Obama and Senate Democrats will propose the changes in one comprehensive bill, the officials said, resisting efforts by some Republicans to break the overhaul into smaller pieces — separately addressing young illegal immigrants, migrant farmworkers or highly skilled foreigners — which might be easier for reluctant members of their party to accept.

The president and Democrats will also oppose measures that do not allow immigrants who gain legal status to become American citizens one day, the officials said.

And by citizens, he means Democratic Party voters. But the punchline is coming up…

The White House will argue that its solution for illegal immigrants is not an amnesty, as many critics insist, because it would include fines, the payment of back taxes and other hurdles for illegal immigrants who would obtain legal status

It’s not amnesty… because there’s a fine.

    "It’s not amnesty… because there’s a fine."

    It's not amnesty nor a processing fee. It's "restitution." That will be $30 please. Here's your voter registration packet filled out for you. Have a nice day.

    Mexico's drug war kills 20,000 including 1,000 since December 1st and an instance where corrupt special forces crossed the border to kill Americans. The drug lords pump tons of heroin, crack, meth and ecstasy into the US every year.

    Obama addresses the issue by:
    Allowing 2,000 machine guns to walk to the cartel
    Providing citizenship to 11 million illegals
    Softening classifications of crime to prevent deportations
    Virtually decriminalizing marijuana possession on the federal level, which is often used to keep known drug dealers and violent criminals in prison

    • EarlyBird

      Patron, Obama did not decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. Many states have decriminalized it at the state level. And in fact, any affect which this might have the Mexican cartels would be to cut of one of its revenue streams, since people can now buy pot from legal dealers.

      Sadly, there are few more non-violent, non-criminal citizens locked up in prison for pot than hard core criminals.

    Goodbye GOP, goodbye Republic.

  • carrie

    If you read the statistics on the environmental ,economical ,medical and criminal effects on our country from illegal immigrants ,you'd be horrified .
    But i guess that shouldn't stop all the enterprising young gardeners and drug dealers that have an American dream.

    Obama must have outlawed the American dream for Americans. and forgot to tell us.

  • JacksonPearson

    Amnesty is insanity, and not a solution or reward for criminality. Why?…Because the waving of a magical wand was tried during the Reagan presidency. They said there were an estimated one million illegals, and it'd be a one-time deal. Well, after the bill was signed, surprise, surprise, three million came crawling out of the woodworks.

    The government says now there's an estimated eleven or twelve million…I say BS. I've lived in the West and Southwest most of my life, and I'd bet that number will easily bloat to thirty five, or forty million. But than what? The fence isn't fixed, and the guards are sent in the wrong direction while a few more thousand illegals cross. The government has been, and will always be the problem. Get serious about border protection/control, and a back-dated-take-no-prisoners-accelerated-deportation-system. No more anchor babies baloney, and finally, send Mexico a super sized bill for taking their welfare recipients off of their hands!

  • wigglwagon

    How many illegals are going  to be eligible for this amnesty?  The '86 Amnesty produced 3 times as many illegals as the EXPERTS had estimated.  Since the EXPERTS estimate about 12 million this time, will we have to accept all 30 or 40 some million or can we just cut it off with the first 12 million?

    • jfcsusayy

      Cut it off at 12 million? Of course not; that is why every bill introduced to give manesty does not use a specific number but rather simply refers to those who are here. The Democrats do not want to leave out anyone who will vote for them in the future.

      You can be certain that any alien who has been given any legal status whatsever will be given citizenship as soon as the Democrats can force through a change in the law. Of course, they will explain how "it is only fair" when the poor aliens have been in the USA for so very long.

  • Ar'nun

    So someone who couldn't be bothered to follow our current immigration laws will some how have a case of conscience enough to pay fines and back taxes??? Yeah, that sounds as likely as Obama cutting taxes.

  • rangerrebew

    The Constitution says in Article 1, Section 8" the congress shall make an UNIFORM rule of naturalization." What is being proposed is hardly UNIFORM since people from other countries can't benefit in the same way. That being said, I realize to liberals/ commiecrats/ socialists, and communists the Consstitution means nothing. It is an obstacle to progressive Nirvana and needs to be exterminated like a rabid animal.

  • Joe

    Why is anyone surprised?

    I voted for Romney and he lost.

    The USA was lost at the same time.

    Evidently, about 50% of Americans don't care about losing the United States and are happy about it.

  • EarlyBird

    Of course it's amnesty. But the fact is that anything short of rounding up and deporting all 11 million illegals – which is a physical, financial and political impossibility – is amnesty.

    So what to do? a.) Physical control of the borders (continue building the Wall); b.) serious punishment of employers who employ illegals; c.) amnesty for those currently here, and finally; d.) a real temporary worker program which we had through much of the 20th Century, which allows would-be illegals to legally travel to and from the US, with safety and dignity, for the purposes of working here. This solution would also put a dent in the Mexican cartels.

    • wigglwagon

      It is neither impossible nor prohibitively expensive. Every illegal alien who comes in contact with law enforcement in any way should have to await their day in immigration court in their own country. At the very least, the court should issue a restraining order barring them from working. Embezzlers are not allowed to continue embezzling while awaiting their day in court. Illegal workers should not be allowed to continue their crime of working while awaiting their day in court. Every day that an illegal alien works is another day that taxpayers have to support a legal resident's family.

      • EarlyBird

        "Every illegal alien who comes in contact with law enforcement in any way should have to await their day in immigration court in their own country."

        In cities like my own, Los Angeles, that would in essence require a whole new additional police force and jail system, just to process and house these illegals, i.e., it's financially impossible. I've made the same comparison for those who want to "ban guns" and round up hundreds of millions of guns in the US: physically, financially and politically impossible.

        "Restraining order barring them from working?"

        What do you mean? If they are locked up, they are barred, right? If not, what are they going to do, wave the restraining order at a would-be employer so they won't get hired? That just doesn't even make sense.

        "Every day that an illegal alien works is another day that taxpayers have to support a legal resident's family.'

        That is way over stated. That makes it sound like they come here and do nothing but go on the dole, which is not true.

  • Ghostwriter

    Another insult to legal immigrants and American citizens. It seems people like President Obama like illegal immigrants over legal ones.

    • EarlyBird

      There have been over two million deportations of illegal immigrants under Obama first four years, over twice as many as under W. Bush's eight years.

      • robinked

        Even obobo-the-clown Admitted to 'Fudging' his own deportation numbers….but hey Keep Guzzelling that Kool-Aid, Dain-Bramage to ensue……..

        • EarlyBird

          Oh really? My son-in-law is an ICE officer, a manager, who claims this has been "the golden era" for deportations, because the Obama admin has put a huge focus on deporting illegals with serious criminal records, and less on rounding up the average guy who swam across the Rio Grande for work in a field.

          Just attempt to consider facts even when you don't want to believe them, okay?

  • CMA

    My husband is an illegal immigrant and you have no idea what we have to go through to make him legal. He only came here to make a better life for himself. The AMERICAN Dream just like your ancestors who came here 100s of years ago. He has NEVER commited a crime or has done any drug of any kind. I understand not letting everyone become a green card holder but those who plan to good things for this country let them. His family came here about 20 years ago (illegal), started out with nothing and now own 6 business with over 100 AMERICAN employees. My husband will do the same.

    And for saying there are no jobs… there are plenty of jobs that are open that most Americans think they are to good to take.

    So, they should be deported because they commited a crime.. all they did was cross the border. What about those who are sitting in prison right now… we dont ship them off….. What about the people who are to lazy to get a job and live off the government. I can go on and on but I know that some wont even try to listen or understand. It is not easy at all to become legal. The fines so far that he has had to pay is well over $50,000! No, that’s not a type-o $50,000! You dont even have that big of a fine for a DWI where you could have killed someone!

    It makes me sad that a few bad immigrants make the rest look bad.

    • Samuel

      You make some good points, and your husband should be granted some relief for his good efforts just like if an illegal serves honorably in the military fighting for this country should be given relief;
      In that case, I do wonder how illegals get into the miltary in the first place? But still, illegals who show
      positive attributes and contribute positively to society, shoule be given some slack. That being said, take a look at Mexicos immigration policy and see how they deal with illegals there.

      Criminals in prison who are blights on society, either should straighten up after they serve time or have ther citizenship revoked if they continue to live a life of crime after prison.

      People who are in good health but lazy and don't want to work or improve themselves and live on the dole off of working taxpayers should be forced to work for their checks somehow; oh that's righ, they already tried that.

    • Ghostwriter

      The problem,CMA is that your husband came here ILLEGALLY. He isn't supposed to be here. Did you ever stop to think that LEGAL immigrants might be upset that illegals are getting better treatment than they or American citizens do? Of course not. They work for years to come here and then they find out that there are those who sneak across the border and are given the same rights as those who followed the rules in the first place or who were born here. How about putting yourself in a legal immigrant's shoes before you make your silly comments,CMA.

      It cost an average of 100,000 dollars to educate a child K-12. CMA complaines about her illegal alien husband paying 50,000 in fines. What about the burden on legal citizens to pay for illegal alien's benefits. There are food stamps and all kinds of welfare for the kids of illegal aliens. Free emergency room medical care and on and on. The Heritage Foundation estimates that a general amnesty would cost the country 2.6 trillion dollars (yes trillion with a "t"). The husband of CMA has created his own problems when he came here knowingly breaking the law (for years). Now we are supposed to make it all OK for his benefit.

      The USA does not exist for the benefit of foreigners. It exists for the benefit of its legal citizens. There is no human right to be given American citizenship or to reside here.

      A nation without strictly enforced immigration laws and control of its borders is like a democracy without elections — it can not be real. Any legal status (amnesty) for illegal aliens is a retroactive nullification of our immigration laws. Where do legal American citizens go when we are pushed out our own country by an uncontrolled flood of aliens? If you doubt this, look at California.

    Bravo, "wigglewagon." Conservatives are falling into the trap of allowing the enemy to control the language of the debate. Conservatives, stop repeating, and thus legitimatizing, the liberal fiction of only 11 million illegal aliens. It's most likely 20 to 30 million. Look at Immigration Counters.com.

    In none of the proposals for amnesty do the proponents limit the amnesty to a specific number such as 11 million — translation: they want all of the 20 to 30 illegal aliens made into future legal Democrat voters. Then we cal all forget about ever turning back the Democrat/Marxist attempts to "fundamentally transform" the US into a tightly controlled socialist state.

    The official push will come from the White House on Tuesday 29 Jan. 2013. Come on people. Now is the time to start screaming bloody hell at any and all legislators.
