Word on the street is Obama will grant amnesty by decree if Repubs don't cave
The humanitarian crisis unfolding across our nation’s southern border demands Congress come together and find thoughtful, compassionate and bipartisan solutions,” Pelosi said. “We must ensure our laws are fully enforced, so that due process is provided to unaccompanied children and the safety and well-being of unaccompanied children is protected. We must also work to address the root causes of the problem.If you want to find the "root causes" of this "humanitarian crisis," look in the damn mirror or ask your president--because the word on the street in Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua is that Obama and his Democrat senate will give amnesty to all aliens here illegally.
Sweet deal for both the illegals and the Democrats, eh? I don't think there's any question that this is enough incentive to set, oh, 90,000 of 'em off for the U.S. this year alone. And the Democrats pick up new party members for life.
Wait, I think I hear Democrats/liberals/"progressives" screaming "The president *never said he'd do that*, and you can NOT hold us responsible for false assumptions by undocumented teenagers!!"
What utter bullshit. Here's what the Dem-loving site The Hill reported at 3pm today--under the headline "Democrats: No bluff, Obama will go it alone on immigration:"
The Obama administration is "not bluffing" in its intent to take executive action on immigration policy if House Republicans don't act soon, top Democratic leaders warned Thursday.Durbin and Menendez are both long-term Democrat power-brokers, so you can be sure they didn't make these threats on Obama's behalf without clearing it with Obama.
President Obama has delayed any potential changes to his deportation policy to allow House GOP leaders time to bring legislation to the floor this summer. But if the Republicans don't act in July, the Democrats say, unilateral changes by Obama are inevitable.
"We're not bluffing by setting a legislative deadline for them to act.," said Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) "Their first job is to govern, and in the absence of governing, then you see executive actions."
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) piled on. Noting that a year has passed since the Senate passed a sweeping immigration reform bill with broad bipartisan support, he urged House Speaker John Boehner to bring a similar bill to the floor.
"I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today," Durbin said. "If he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration."
Now, what do you suppose these top Democrats, and Obama, mean by "sweeping immigration reform?" Hint: They're not just proposing to change the color of the application form. The only step that means anything to their illegal constituents is amnesty, amnesty, amnesty--accompanied by issuance of green-card equivalents, followed very shortly by full citizenship.
See why every resident of anywhere who wants U.S. citizenship is flocking over the border? And having kids do it is absolutely brilliant. I suspect that if the Dems get their way on amnesty, within a month we'll start hearing the plaintive wail by the Left that "It's just not fair to separate families, so you mean ol' Rethuglicans absolutely *have to* let their parents come to the U.S. to join their lonely children!"
Count on it.
