To get the votes of Hispanics, Obama used Executive Orders to enforce the DREAM Act, which Congress had refused to pass. This was totally unconstitutional. Obama, as President, can only enforce laws that Congress has passed. He has no constitutional power to “enforce” “laws” that have not been passed.
To justify his actions, Obama gave us sob stories about innocent children who couldn’t help it they were brought illegally to this country and how it was only fair they should be given work permits and allowed to stay in this country. Obama also claimed the founders of Google and Yahoo were illegals and therefore, we should keep illegals here.
In fact, Obama has no intention of bringing in educated people because they would see through him and vote Republican. The Quota for H-1B visas is only 65,000 a year and includes family members. This quota is run through within days after applications are accepted. Republicans in Congress have passed a bill allowing an increase in these numbers and authorizing a visa to those foreign students who obtain degrees in Sciences in this country. But Obama and Reid refused to follow up.
Instead, Obama wants to give Amnesty to millions of uneducated and unskilled illegals and Islamic terrorists (known officially as “OTM’s” or Other than Mexicans) who come here illegally. Obama says there are 11 million illegals here, but in 2006, the Census bureau gave a count of 11 million illegals. The numbers today could be as high as 20 million.
Neither Obama nor Congress has bothered to actually count the number of illegals. Nor do they know the identities of these illegals.
It is estimated that nearly a million OTM’s, or potential terrorists, are entering the country each year. Since 2008, Obama has refused to disclose numbers of OTM’s. In 2005, the number was 45,000 and DHS acknowledges they catch only 1 in 10, meaning 450,000 Islamic Terrorists or OTM’s entered illegally in 2005. Officials speaking anonymously have stated the number of OTM’s have increased 88% since Obama took office, meaning the actual number of OTM’s could be a million annually. DHS also acknowledged to a Congressional Committee that they allow over 70% of OTM’s apprehended to remain in the US because the country of origin refuses to take them back.
The Mexican Mafia and Mara Salvatrucha gangs control the border and their gang members are active throughout the States.
The cost of providing illegals with food, shelter, education and healthcare plus EBT cards and Obama-phones is staggering. We ourselves have 24 million unemployed and nearly 48 million underemployed. A responsible President would say he would like to help the illegals; but that jobs for American citizens are his first priority.
Instead, Obama has secretly issued orders that ICE cannot question any illegal they apprehend. If the illegal says he came here as a kid and went to school here, ICE is not permitted to challenge or investigate the veracity of that statement. In fact, the ICE Union has brought suit against Obama saying they are penalized for obeying lawful orders and are forced to obey Obama’s unlawful orders.
Rubio and the Republicans are struggling to craft rules that would be fair to illegals and also to unemployed Americans. But this whole discussion is meaningless.
Obama has made sure he gets his way, and his votes, regardless. He has lied to us and tricked us. It could be an innocent child. But it could also be an adult or even a gang member or a terrorist. They all get in under Obama’s secret and unconstitutionalAmnesty regulations.
