Immigration Enforcement And Barak Obama

ON 7/1/10, President Barak Obama at the American University gave a resounding political speech on illegal immigration enforcement filled with half truths and in some instances totally untrue statements.

The polls report that 80% of the people want the President and Attorney General to enforce the present immigration laws.The statement that deportation don’t work is a half truth if one would review the immigration laws. The truth is that the government’s policy of catch and release or deportation does not work. The need to punish violators with incarceration should receive high priority if a resolve is to be accomplished.

It was apparent from President Obama’s remarks regarding the Arizona 1070 bill that he was not factual. It is clear that he probably has not read the bill as yet.

President Obama referring ‘’that our nation is a nation of the rule of law’’ is making a mockery of enforcing the law as well as degrading the respect of the office of the presidency. Again blaming the Republicans without mentioning some Democrats who will not support immigration reform until the border is closed was a half true statement.

We should look to countries such as Russia, China or North Korea for the blueprint as to border control. The President mentioned the 11 million illegals that are here ( due to the government not enforcing the law ) cannot just be relocated or deported.

Mr. President, you are wrong. During the campaign you said ‘’ yes we can'' ,‘’ ‘’hope is on the way’’ and ‘’let me be clear.’’. The refusal to enforce immigration law is to be in violation of the law. Congress has a responsibility to defend the US Constitution and the enforcement of the laws. The silence of the majority controlled Democrat Congress is deafening .

THE OATH OF OFFICE:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

The Justice Department can start by incarcerating unauthorized aliens instead of using deportation. The government must deny all government entitlements to non citizens. The borders must be sealed before any new immigration laws are considered. These are simple for starters solutions in resolving some of the violations in immigration law.

. The National policy Institute, estimated that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.'

The total cost of illegal imigration is a whopping $ 338.3 BILLION a year and if you are like me having trouble understanding this amount of money; it is $338,300,000,000.00 which would be enough to STIMULATE THE ECONOMY for the citizens of this country. Are we that stupid? YES, for letting those in the US Congress get away with allowing this to happen year after year!!

Immigration Law

ARTICLE IV, Section 4 of the U.S. CONSTITUTION

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

Section 274 felonies under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A):

A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a FEDERAL FELONEY when she or he:assists an alien she/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.

Wake up America and speak out. Washington needs to know that the people want the President and Congress to work for the people first, not for unauthorized aliens who are taking advantage of the American way of life.

Since 911 our borders should have been declared a defense issue first and an immigration issue second.

Included in that defense issue is protection against illegal drugs and drug cartels. Northern Mexico is like having Afghanistan on our continent.

The bigger and wider threat is allowing terrorists to freely enter the borders with the millions of illegal alien workers.

Jon, the numbers you throw out are staggering and, unfortunately, believable.

The Obama-Holder duo seems determined to keep as many legals inside the U.S. borders as possible.

Why?

Megan Kelly's (Fox News) with a Department of Justice whistle blower seems to hold the

key.http://video.foxnews.com/v/4267251/adams-dojs-hand...

This is a major revelation mainstream media refuses to pick up on.

It all amounts to this:

illegal immigrants + ACORN= fraudualent votes for socialistic/progressive candidates.

According to the whistle-blower if you file a case and you are a WASP, sorry about your luck.

Great HUB!


Hxprof 6 years ago from Clearwater, Florida

Thanks for exposing the lies of Messiah-Obama in his speech on 'comprehensive immigration reform'.

Fact is even the number he uses-11 million estimated illegals in America-is outdated. That number was being tossed around back in '05 when I was part of a minuteman org.

The estimates now run at the minimum 15 million; the higher estimates go from 20-30+ million.

Thankfully he acknowledges the FACT that terroists are coming across our borders; yet, he refuses to apply all the resources necessary to seal up our borders-he is living in denial of the greatest external threat to America ever. I'm waiting for something to go BOOM; with our swiss cheese borders it's bound to happen.

What should be done to correct the problem? Congress ( our elected politicians in Washington) needs to enact a ''government unauthorized alien enforcement act ''.President Obama and Ag Holder needs to be subpoenaed to come before Congress and explain why they refuse to enforce the immigration laws. One must wonder if the pompus and Hollywood Senators could demand the answers to their questions as they do when other execs come before them.

The department of justice enforces federal law.

The department of defense should protect the country.

The Homeland Defense and Homeland Security should protect homeland. That should mean enforcing and controlling our borders.

Immigration is a multifaceted problem.

The most important facet is making sure that terrorists don't infiltrate the country.

With millions of illegal aliens entering the country, it is a purpose screen for the few but deadly terrorists that could get into the country through the borders.

Another issue is the total loss of control over drugs coming across the border. There are very powerful and dangerous drug cartels at our southern border.

Trying to stop drugs once they enter into the country is like trying to eradicate a ant colony one ant after another ant. Meanwhile, the queen ant is producing more ants.

If you protect the border, it serves multiple interests and it is closer to the source of the problem.

If you prevent a rat from getting into your house, you don't have to spend time trying to track it in your house.

Both DOD and DOJ are in the Administrative Branch, and that leads to the VP and President.

The people didn't make immigration or the protection of our borders a make or break position in the last election, so now the Congress and the President don't have a problem in that area.

First off- don't come to my hubs and call me liberal or any other insults you want to make up. Do it again and I'll probably censure you.

Now I'm repeating myself and posting this twice so you can see it soon enough:

No Jon. You and many others want so badly for our "democracy" to work. YOU are WRONG. This country works for the people it's supposed to work for.

First off I'm not any name you want to interject like "liberal".

If you're the opposite of liberal you're still an idiot if you think this country works.

It works for the poor.

I never voted for Obama and I won't for the next FRAUD you propose.

This country of America has never existed. It's money that goes around the world killing and displacing people for their resources meanwhile stupid intellectuals like yourself have never WORKED for a dime. Get out of your suit and go to work.

YOU CANNOT WORK IN A SUIT.

YOU CANNOT DIG A GRAVE IN A SUIT!

You and this country are liars.

You have no intention of working.

I'm 60 years old and I'm tired of the lies people like perpetuate.

This country works for SUITS.

George Bush either helped kill 4,000 people in the World Trade Center or he helped cover it up.

Obama, Bush , and you are the same.

To deny your response would be to deny hubbers a change to understand how mixed up the world is today. You are by your admittance ‘’Being a Veteran is part of my road to peace.’’ what you wrote in your hub regarding our country and attacking me as a liar don’t appear that you have found peace as yet.

I am not an intellectual, although my children are, not an idiot but if I were it takes an idiot to recognize another idiot, not a liar as you so proclaimed. I don’t recall referring to you as a liberal although your actions are similar and last but not least , I’m not wrong on whatever I wrote to set you off.

One should not take offense to any hubbers writings. We all have opinions and in America we are free ‘’ by the constitution and the rule of law ‘’ to express them. Today in America we need our government more than any time in our history not only to tell the truth but the whole truth and nothing less than the whole truth, so help me god.

Wake up America, our government by their actions is corrupt.

Case closed, wishing the best in your future.

Hey Jon.

I am 66, and am a new Hubber. I got my degree from "The University of Hard Knocks" I believe by this time, I've probably earned a doctorate.

Anyway, I love the truth you write, and the facts you offer to back it up.

The unfortunate ramblings of the left, and the half-truths that are screamed so loudly and so long seem to get all the attention because they make a good story. The reason they make a good story is because of the adventure of the whole thing. You can follow that logic simply by picking up a good fiction book. The more exciting it is, the more people like to read it.

And of course there's always the old story that if you tell a lie long enough, sooner or later, it becomes the truth.

Well, in the case of our fearless leader. He has been telling lies for so long, and they are so exciting, that tremendous amounts of people have to believe those stories, just because they can not MAKE themselves believe the actual truth. After all, the real story isn't that interesting, it's not that much fun, it's depressing.

When my son was small I convinced him that being a Republican was better than being a Democrat. That meant we were the leaders. We were the ones that made the money that the Democrats were always trying to give away to the people that we hired to mow our lawns.

Somehow that made a lot more sense when I was telling a 10 year old.

''I convinced him that being a Republican was better than being a Democrat''.TEACH HIM TO KNOW what is right and what is wrong. Teach him what it is to be honest and have integrity. Teach him ''love of country '' love of family and all mankind. Without your son, the future of our country and society, the country that we love will not be free from tyranny and greed.

ps not preaching, just letting my feelings out, please excuse.

Well Jon,

He's 40 now, he knows a lot more than he did when he was 10 and he agrees with all that already. His mom and I had a mission to raise he and his sister with the mission to be better adults than we are. They both grew to be fine Christians, with solid foundations and "love of God", "Love of Country" and "Love of Truth".

All that files down to watching the history of the politician to decide how to vote, not listening to the political promises. Afterall promises are easy to break, but history is very hard to fake.

Well, enough about me and mine. Back to the subject at hand.

It seems to me that we could use the same system to stop illegal entry as is being used to stop theft. Make it too expensive or dangerous. (keyword: dangerous) How about all the ex servicemen who took the oath to defend our country for all threats, foreign and domestic? well that oath lasts a lifetime. How about we all take up our weapons, perch at the border, and take pot shots at the waders? Perhaps we could scare them off. After all, they are INVADERS!

Any law written on a piece of paper is worthless and useless unless the punishments of the law is enforced. I can hear our Representatives in Congress '' we are a nation of the rule of law ''. President Obama, the attorney general are given the job of enforcing the laws. Big joke and bigger when Congress sits silent and mute.

Dear Jon,

Thank you for commenting on my Hub. I am a bit confused by the appreciation you expressed for my article; it is so antithetical to your article here. At first, I thought that the comment was left by a passerby reader. And then I realized that you are a Huber. It was also very thoughtful of you to leave me the two links, which I followed and read.

I hope that my post has disabused you of some of the worst propaganda statements that some have circulated in their opposition to immigration reform. But more importantly, I hope that you are someone with an open mind and is willing to consider the facts when they are presented convincingly.

The issue of immigration is a complex one. We can debate and our government can even come together and resolve the immigration matter if we can all keep the discussion intellectually honest and civil. I will only leave the following for you and your readers to consider:

1. The United States government cannot arrest and imprison over 4 million individuals who may be in this country without proper documentation. (Many of those people have entered the country legally and overstayed their visas.)

2. Undocumented immigrants, also referred to as "aliens" come from all over the world. The idea that most or almost all illegal immigrants are from Mexico is a myth.

3. We could turns half of our schools into prisons and still be unable to incarcerate 4 to 5 million people. Every country in the world deports people (not incarcerate) people without documentation.

4. President Obama has enforced the nation's immigration laws more than any other president before him. He's done this by:

a. massive numbers of deportation (which breaks up families leaving American-born children without parents);

b. adding Drone surveillance to the borders, in addition to the hundreds of miles of fences, videos, censors, etc.

c. more immigration raids than at any time before this presidency.

As a matter of fact, it is the "job creators" party, namely the GOP that has been the champion of illegal immigration. The Republican party has historically been opposed to placing requirements on employers who hire undocumented workers. They fought that provision during the 1980 Reagan Immigration Reform, and where the provisions existed, they worked to weaken them.

There have been dozens of immigration reforms and amendments to immigration laws since the beginning of the Republic. The last one took place in the 1980 under President Ronald Reagan. At that time, the borders were porous and they remained that way until a few years ago.

It is time to now reform the US immigration system once and for all. And all the excuses that Tea Party Republicans are coming up with will not stop that from happening.

Let's keep the conversation honest.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on your article.

Thank you for your comments on the subject

Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_Reform_an... was an attempt to solve the immigration problem during 1986. About three million undocumented immigrants were granted legal status through this act.

You say ‘’It is time to now reform the US immigration system once and for all. We are a nation of the rule of law and we have a Constitution that is the foundation of our freedoms When the law is broken , it is the government’s duty to enforce the law,

Illegal immigration is like a disease that grows and grows , if not taken care of the disease it will destroy.

#1 Today, the Government allows Illegal Aliens to receive GOVERNMENT ENTITLEMENTS meant for US citizens Deny illegal aliens entitlements , they will leave .Violators will be deported as per the law

#2. Hipanics are the majority of UNDOCUMENTED Aliens

#3 see above

#4 The President’s job is to enforce the laws of the land. Obama changing law is not his job, Congress can only change law ( the Constitution)

Violators are violators , illegal aliens are illegal aliens ,that’s fact We as adults supposedly teach our children right from wrong, obey the law and respect your fellow man and government.In Washington today, wrong is right and right is wrong, sad to say.

‘’ It is time to now reform the US immigration system once and for all.’’. -http://www.speaker.gov/general/sotu-fact-house-pas... …Senate NO VOTE on House bill BO threatens he will VETO Something is wrong in Congress and in the whitehouse.
