Webster’s Dictionary defines amnesty as a general policy of non-reprisal or forgiveness. For the criminals, unskilled, and destitute our borders are a swinging door. They skirt our rules, break our laws, and thumb their noses at our culture. A border is meant to let in the good and keep out the bad. It’s purpose is to define a nation. Our borders are blurred thanks to the idea of progressivism.
If a business ceased screening and interviewing applicants and gave a job to all who entered the business illegally; how long would it prosper? Not long with lying, stealing, resume faking, tax evading, and identity thieving employees with poor communication skills and lack of respect for the business. The same holds true for rewarding illegal aliens with amnesty.
This twisted ‘progressive’ logic basically says that immigration law is the cause of illegal immigration. This thinking will lead us into lawlessness, anarchy, and chaos. It’s like trying to put out a fire by dousing it with gasoline. President Obama’s actions, if not reversed, will exacerbate an already out of control problem.
Foreign nationals will continue to sneak in, lie, cheat, steal, kill, etc….just to get across so they can stay. They know that our magnificently poor excuse for a leader will turn a blind eye to their every trespass. President Obama is guilty of gross deriliction of duty by failing to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” per his oath of office.
The Gallup Poll questioned the “Importance of Controlling U.S. Borders to Halt the Flow of Illegal Immigrants into the U.S.” in 2006, 2010, and in June 2011. The results aren’t surprising at all: 2006-44%, 2010-42%, and 2011-53% considered it “extremely important” for the government to take action. Our Progressive President’s response is a complete 180 degree opposite of what the people want.
The new Rasmussen Poll found that 64% of voters favor gaining control of our borders more important than granting amnesty to illegals. One recent Rasmussen Poll found 57% of voters think the federal governments policies and practices encourage illegal immigration. This individual seconds that motion.
The Obama Administration doesn’t care about trivial things like the will of the people (we don’t matter), the seperation of powers (he wants it all), and the Constitution (it’s so old, he’s so progressive). His pandering to and coddling of illegal aliens speaks volumes about his character.
They’ve sued Arizona, Georgia, and Alabama for doing the job they refuse to do. He knows he is losing the battle as more and more states and citizens join in saying “Enough is enough”. Obama knows he can’t get any amnesty through Congress the legal route and has resorted to tyranny to force it down our throats.
He blatantly circumvented Congress by granting administrative amnesty to hundreds of thousands of criminal aliens. The June 17, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement memo essentially announced that the DREAM Act will be treated as if it were a law; even though it never made it through Congress. President or is it King Obama is assuming powers not granted him by the Constitution.
The Federation of American Immigration Reform correctly called this unconstitutional act a “blanket amnesty”. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano considers ignoring the Constitution and U.S. laws an enhancement to public safety? Is she really serious? Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid praise the President for trampling all over the Constitution and end running around Congress. You can truly tell a tree by the fruit it bears.
Dan Stein of FAIR describes it this way; “Having failed in the legislative process, the Obama Administration has simply decided to usurp Congress’ constitutional authority and impliment an amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens. This step in the White House amounts to a complete abrogation of the President’s duty to enforce the laws of the land and a huge breach of the public trust…”

They, as well as their other Alabama colleagues, need to hear from their constituents. Encourage them to put a halt to the Obama Administration’s lust for power.
