Reading between the lines

Welcome to Hope and Change America.

 The Flood gates have been officially opened. They can't deport 12 million illegals but they can keep track of 5 million? What's to stop more illegals from arriving tomorrow claiming they've been here 5 years? I bet we're the only country on the face of the Earth actively engaged in importing illegals. Under his administration rules have been enacted  prohibiting law enforcement from even asking their status!!! 

What's Ironic?... The very same guy who said 22 times " I don't have the authority to grant amnesty" grants it. Who told us for 2 years "You can keep your insurance period. No matter what"...until you couldn't?

 Don't let this waste of skin bullshit you... on the other hand there's no reason to believe me either.  

Reagan once said, "Trust but verify". 

Here's his pitch. You buying it?


Transcript: Obama’s immigration speech

A transcript of President Obama’s remarks on immigration.. 

OBAMA: My fellow Americans, tonight I’d like to talk with you about immigration. For more than 200 years, our tradition of welcoming immigrants from around the world has given us a tremendous advantage over other nations. 

This is called blurring the line. Ellis island is the same as jumping the fence.

OBAMA: It’s kept us youthful, dynamic, and entrepreneurial. It has shaped our character as a people with limitless possibilities. People not trapped by our past, but able to remake ourselves as we choose. 

Entrepreneurial means many have become "pharmacists".
30% of the federal prison population are illegals.

CA is the state which loves "undocumented immigrants"above all others. This is their most wanted list. 

See anyone here named Jablonski?

But today, our immigration system is broken, and everybody knows it. Families who enter our country the right way and play by the rules watch others flout the rules.

Im sure those who play by the rules are tickled to death the ones who "flout" them are given amnesty.

 Business owners who offer their wages good wages benefits see the competition exploit undocumented immigrants by paying them far less. All of us take offense to anyone who reaps the rewards of living in America without taking on the responsibilities of living in America. And undocumented immigrants who desperately want to embrace those responsibilities see little option but to remain in the shadows, or risk their families being torn apart. 

I don't take offense to illegals making less. What I take offense to is businesses who knowingly hire them.

It’s been this way for decades. And for decades we haven’t done much about it. When I took office, I committed to fixing this broken immigration system. And I began by doing what I could to secure our borders.

  "Broken immigration system" is a recurring buzzword for lack of enforcement. Think of it this way. If a water pipe breaks in your home do you continually mop the floor or fix the fucking pipe? 

 He did what he could to secure our borders... by creating sanctuary cities and  sending his lapdog Stedman to sue states, AZ among others, who were trying to crack down on illegals.

During his speech on immigration reform, President Obama called on illegal immigrants to "come out of the shadows" and "get right with the law." (AP)

Today we have more agents and technology deployed to secure our southern border than at any time in our history. And over the past six years illegal border crossings have been cut by more than half. 

We would have had one more if Stedman didn't get Brian Terry killed.

Although this summer there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border, the number of such children is actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years. 

Overall the number of people trying to cross our border illegally is at its lowest level since the 1970s. Those are the facts.

Apprehended in this case is a synonym for invited and taken on a bus tour.

Meanwhile, I worked with Congress on a comprehensive fix. And last year 68 Democrats, Republicans, and independents came together to pass a bipartisan bill in the Senate. It wasn’t perfect. It was a compromise. But it reflected common sense. It would have doubled the number of Border Patrol agents, while giving undocumented immigrants a pathway to citizenship, if they paid a fine, started paying their taxes and went to the back of the line. And independent experts said that it would help grow our economy and shrink our deficits. 

I worked with Congress on a comprehensive fix but that didn't work so instead of waiting for the new Congress to convene I'm declaring amnesty. 

The deficit is $18 trillion because of him and importing illegals is going to shrink it?

Had the House of Representatives allowed that kind of bill a simple yes or no vote, it would have passed with support from both parties. And today it would be the law. But for a year and a half now Republican leaders in the House have refused to allow that simple vote. Now I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common sense law. But until that happens, there are actions I have the legal authority to take as president, the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican presidents before me, that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just. 

The House passed over 300 bills (including immigration) and sent them to the senate. Reid never brought one of them to the floor for a vote. Barry talks about a simple yes or no vote but that didn't apply to Keystone until Landrieu became desperate. Then suddenly it had a sense of urgency. What would you like passed... Amnesty or Keystone?

Tonight I’m announcing those actions. 

OBAMA: First, we’ll build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel so that they can stem the flow of illegal crossings and speed the return of those who do cross over. 

Second, I’ll make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders proposed. 

Third, we’ll take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already had live in our country. 

He has no interest in securing the border. It's a Democrat producing machine! Have you ever heard a Democrat adamantly fight for voter ID?

I want to say more about this third issue, because it generates the most passion and controversy. Even as we are a nation of immigrants, we’re also a nation of laws. Undocumented workers broke our immigration laws, and I believe that they must be held accountable, especially those who may be dangerous.

 So he's holding them accountable by granting amnesty? Better watch the 3rd issue. He's setting us up for blanket amnesty for the rest of them 

That’s why over the past six years deportations of criminals are up 80 percent, and that’s why we’re going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security. Felons, not families. Criminals, not children. Gang members, not a mom who’s working hard to provide for her kids. We’ll prioritize, just like law  enforcement does every day. 

Criminals here illegally bad... the rest breaking the law by coming here... good 
That 80% is as truthful as 5.8% unemployment!

But even as we focus on deporting criminals, the fact is millions of immigrants in every state, of every race and nationality still live here illegally.


And let’s be honest, tracking down, rounding up and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you. It’s also not who we are as Americans. 

Allow me to be straight. This from Wikipedia:

We arrest 1.5 million a year for DWI... but we just can't catch them damn illegals! Ironically many of the 1.5 million arrested for DWI are illegals then released back into society.

After all, most of these immigrants have been here a long time. They work hard often in tough, low paying jobs. They support their families. They worship at our churches. Many of the kids are American born or spent most of their lives here. And their hopes, dreams, and patriotism are just like ours. 

As my predecessor, President Bush, once put it, they are a part of American life.

Holy shit!!! He said Bush without blaming him. 

Now here is the thing. We expect people who live in this country to play by the rules. We expect those who cut the line will not be unfairly rewarded. So we’re going to offer the following deal: If you’ve with been in America more than five years. If you have children who are American citizens or illegal residents. If you register, pass a criminal background check and you’re willing to pay your fair share of taxes, you’ll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. That’s what this deal is. 

Now let’s be clear about what it isn’t. This deal does not apply to anyone who has come to this country recently. It does not apply to anyone who might come to America illegally in the future. It does not grant citizenship or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive. Only Congress can do that. All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you. 

In other words he's doing what Congress can only do.

I know some of the critics of the action call it amnesty. Well, it’s the not. Amnesty is the immigration system we have today. Millions of people who live here without paying their taxes or playing by the rules, while politicians use the issue to scare people and whip up votes at election time. That’s the real amnesty, leaving this broken system the way it is. Mass amnesty would be unfair. Mass deportation would be both impossible and contrary it to our character. 

What I’m describing is accountability. A common sense middle- ground approach. If you meet the criteria, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. If you’re a criminal, you’ll be deported. If you plan to enter the U.S. illegally, your chances of getting caught and sent back just went up. 

This is laughable. Remember sequestration? The first thing he did was release thousands of illegal criminals from jail with no regard for the public safety.

From his campaign headquarters... CBS.

This was in retaliation for a plan he himself came up with!

The actions I’m taken are not only lawful, they’re the kinds of actions taken by every single Republican president and every single Democratic president for the past half century. 

Did you hear Pelosi? She said what he's doing is the same thing as Lincoln's... The Emancipation Proclamation. Doubling down on Gruber's "stupid Americans" line? 

Comparing Barry to Lincoln would be like comparing Bergdhal to Pat Tillman

And to those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill. I want to work with both parties to pass a more permanent legislative solution. And the day I sign that bill into law, the actions I take will no longer be necessary. 

OBAMA: Meanwhile, don’t let a disagreement over a single issue be a deal breaker on every issue. That’s not how our Democracy works, and Congress shouldn’t shut down our government again just because we disagree on this. 

Americans are tired of gridlock. What our country needs right now is a common purpose, a higher purpose. Most Americans support the types of reforms I’ve talked about tonight, but I understand with the disagreements held by many of you at home.

I will work with Congress as long as they do what I say.

How is it most Americans support what he says but polls indicate 75% disapprove? If Amnesty is such a great idea why didn't he announce it before the election, you know, to help his cause?

Millions of us, myself included, go back generations in this country, with ancestors who put in the painstaking work to become citizens. So we don’t like the notion anyone might get a free pass to American citizenship. 

I know some worry immigration will change the very fabric of who we are, or take our jobs, or stick it to middle-class families at a time they already feel they’ve gotten a raw deal for over a decade. I hear those concerns, but that’s not what these steps would do. 

We entrust Barry to protect the border when his own aunt and uncle are living here illegally on Section 8 and welfare. Miraculously, after Barry became POTUS deportation proceeding suddenly went away. His aunt has since passed away. Click here for details.

Our history and the facts show that immigrants are a net plus for our economy and our society. And I believe it’s important that all of us have this debate without impugning each other’s character. 

Net plus for the economy? These are not doctors and lawyers jumping the fence. The average illegal has a 6th grade education. Those from some of the counties in Central America speak not Spanish but a "tribal language" and have never set foot in a classroom.

Because for all the back and forth in Washington, we have to remember that this debate is about something bigger. It’s about who we are a country and who we want to be for future generations. 

Are we a nation that tolerates the hypocrisy of a system where workers who pick our fruit and make our beds never have a chance to get right with the law? Or are we a nation that gives them a chance to make amends, take responsibility, and give their kids a better future? 

We are also a nation governed by the rule of law.

Are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms, or are we a nation that values families and works together to keep them together? Are we a nation that educates the world’s best and brightest in our universities only to send them home to create businesses in countries that compete against us, or are we a nation that encourages them to stay and create jobs here, create businesses here, create industries right here in America? That’s what this debate is all about.

Someone get me a Kleenex. They made the decision to come here illegally and now the onus is on us...we're the bad guys? 

We need more than politics as usual when it comes to immigration. We need reasoned, thoughtful, compassionate debate that focuses on our hopes, not our fears. I know the politics of this issue are tough, but let me tell you why I have come to feel so strongly about it. Over the past years I’ve seen the determination of immigrant fathers who worked two or three jobs without taking a dime from the government, and at risk any moment of losing it all just to build a better life for their kids. I’ve seen the heartbreak and anxiety of children whose mothers might be taken away from them just because they didn’t have the right papers. I’ve seen the courage of students who except for the circumstances of their birth are as American as Malia or Sasha, students who bravely come out as undocumented in hopes they could make a difference in the country they love. 

Undocumented is another bullshit line of his that walks along with workplace violence down the same path. If you're undocumented then you are illegal. There's no other recourse except in his mind.

These people, our neighbors, our classmates, our friends, they did not come here in search of a free ride or an easy life. They came to work, and study and serve in our military. And, above all, contribute to American success. 

Now tomorrow I’ll travel to Las Vegas and meet with some of these students, including a young woman named Astrid Silva. Astrid was brought to America when she was 4 years old. Her only possessions were a cross, her doll, and the frilly dress she had on. When she started school, she didn’t speak any English. She caught up to other kids by reading newspapers and watching PBS. And then she became a good student. Her father worked in landscaping. Her mom cleaned other people’s homes. They wouldn’t let Astrid apply to a technology magnet school, not because they didn’t love her, but because they were afraid the paperwork would out her as an undocumented immigrant. So she applied behind their back and got in.

Hand me another Kleenex. 

Still, she mostly lived in the shadows until her grandmother, who visited every year from Mexico, passed away, and she couldn’t travel to the funeral without risk of being found out and deported. It was around that time she decided to begin advocating for herself and others like her. And today Astrid Silva a college student working on her third degree. Are we a nation that kicks out a striving, hopeful immigrant like Astrid? 

How sweet. 
Then reality sets in.
I can only imagine what it is now.

From 1980 to 1999, the number of illegal aliens in federal and state prisons grew from 9,000 to 68,000. Today, criminal aliens account for about 30% of the inmates in federal prisons and 15-25% in many local jails. Incarceration costs to the taxpayers were estimated by the Justice Department in 2002 to be $891 million for federal prison inmates and $624 million for inmates in state prisons.
And this doesn't count all the other bennies for those not in jail.

OBAMA: Or are we a nation that finds a way to welcome her in? Scripture tells us, we shall not oppress a stranger, for we know the heart of a stranger. We were strangers once, too. 

My interpretation of ...The gospel according to Barry

Gruber 8:31-32 … So Barry said to the people who had believed him, “If you believe in amnesty, you are truly my disciples, and ye shall seek the truth, because it sure as hell ain't coming from me."

My fellow Americans, we are and always will be a nation of immigrants. We were strangers once, too. And whether our forbearers were strangers who crossed the Atlantic, or the Pacific or the Rio Grande, we are here only because this country welcomed them in and taught them that to be an American is about something more than what we look like or what our last names are, or how we worship. What makes us Americans is our shared commitment to an ideal, that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will. That’s the country our parents and grandparents and generations before them built for us. That’s the tradition we must uphold. That’s the legacy we must leave for those who are yet to come. 

Thank you. God bless you. And God bless this country we love.

Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.
