Remember When Emperor Barack Obama Said He Did Not Have the Power to Take Executive Action on Immigration?


Not only does the Emperor have no clothes, he has no credibility and no Constitutional authority …

Remember when Emperor Barack Obama said the following:

  • “I take the Constitution very seriously, the biggest problems that we facing right now is George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive branch and not go through Congress at all. And that is what I intend to reverse when I am President of the United States of America.”
  • “There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system.”
  • “For me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as president.”
  • “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case.”
  • “There are laws on the books that I have to enforce”.
  • “If in fact I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so.”
  • “This notion that I can change laws unilaterally is just not true”.

Really Mr. President? Because last night when you announced your executive order on immigration, you pretty much did a 180 on every single previous remark you have ever made on the issue. So much for the rule of law and the US Constitution. If Barack Obama cared so much about these families and even went so far to cite scripture, why didn’t he do it sooner? Just curious, does Obama care about the American legal citizens whose families are about t be affected by this influx? How about all the people who came to the United States legally?

The Hill:

The president will also announce plans to shift enforcement efforts, ordering federal law enforcement officers to narrow their focus to those illegal immigrants with criminal records, gang affiliations or ties to terrorism.

And Obama will expand the total number of high-tech visas that are available, as well as loosen restrictions so that more would-be entrepreneurs can travel legally to the United States to launch companies.

The president and other Cabinet and senior administration officials plan to “fan out” across the country over the coming weeks in order to promote the executive actions, according to one aide.

The moves are all aimed at “bringing some accountability to our broken immigration system,” a senior administration official said Thursday.

The biggest change to the immigration system will be a new program that allows the parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents to apply for work permits and deferred deportation.

An estimated 4 million parents will be eligible for the initiative. They are people who have been in the United States for at least five years and have no felony convictions but are currently in the country illegally.

      Top be intentionally seeking to import them while crying about not deporting them is just silly.
      GOP Pushing More Low-Paying Guestworker Visas

      The GOP has a new jobs bill. House Republican Representatives Ted Poe of Texas and Raul Labrador of Idaho have proposed nearly twice as many annual visas for low-skilled guest workers than the Senate bill had included in its version of an immigration bill. The House will propose nearly 400,000 new H-2B visas for temporary foreign guest workers in non-agricultural work (for unskilled and semi-skilled labor.)

      With a record number of Americans on food stamps and 5 years of prolonged high unemployment, why would the GOP insist on MORE guest worker visas? The labor market is already over-saturated and the job growth we’ve had during this “recovery” has been seeing an increasing number of part-time low-paying jobs and temp work.

      The immigration bill that passed in the Senate in June created the new class of visas for low-skilled (low paid) workers and increased the allotment of them annually, starting at 20,000 and maxing out at 220,000. Businesses, as always, have criticized the cap as too low.

      A higher cap could prove popular among House Republicans and would please many businesses that rely on low-skilled workers (laborers). The bill drew protests from the AFL-CIO as labor unions wanted to limit visas for low-skilled workers, saying foreign workers compete for jobs with U.S. workers and further depresses already declining wages.

      The H-2B program (for unskilled non-agricultural migrant workers) is one that, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report, is subject to extensive fraud and abuse. One can subscribe the Department of Labor’s newsletter to get weekly alerts about the names of employers who are already abusing guest worker wages, and when caught, the fines they must pay. Businesses groups (lobbyists) such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable have been promoting more of the same.

      Ted Cruz fails in attempt to increase highly skilled immigration to 300,000/year
      ?A May 14, 2013 report in the Washington Post relates how an attempt by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas to increase the annual number of what is called H1-B visas to 300,000 was turned back in the Senate Judiciary Committee on a vote of 15 to 4. The current immigration reform legislation would increase the cap from 65,000 to 110,000 with the possibility of it rising to 180,000 depending on demand and unemployment.

      The H1-B visa program allows for the immigration of highly skilled workers, scientists, engineers, doctors and the like, to the United States. Cruz argued for the increase in the annual cap on the basis that such skilled workers actually stimulate job creation. His arguments fell on deaf ears, however. While technology firms are eager for more skilled workers to hire in the United States, labor unions are dead set against allowing more immigrants with skills in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) on the theory that they would take jobs away from native born Americans.
