El presidente flew nine hours today (at a cost of $1.6 million to the American taxpayers) to reject the key compromise at the heart of a bipartisan deal on immigration reform announced by eight Senators yesterday. In yet another speech in Las Vegas, O will outline his own immigration ideas, which oppose linking a “path to citizenship” for illegal immigrants to stronger law enforcement and better border security.
This, of course, is tantamount to pardoning criminals who continue to break into your home, while failing to install deadbolts and a security system – or, as I like to call it, “Liberal Logic 101.”
Let’s simplify the whole immigration “reform” thing right off the bat before we rake the disingenuous el presidente over the coals. Given the reality of the number of illegal – yes, illegal – as opposed to “undocumented” – aliens living in America today, true immigration reform must address three issues in order to be effective:
1. The so-called “pathway to citizenship” for illegals currently in the country – given that they meet certain criteria, including coming forward, paying a fine and back taxes.
2. What to do about those who refuse to come forward.
3. Border security.
While most everyone who is serious about immigration reform agrees with all three objectives, the problem lies with the order in which various camps believe they should be implemented. O and the Democrats – while giving lip service to 2 and 3, are most interested in 1.
Most conservatives, on the other hand, believe that border security must be first and foremost – or 1 and 2 amount to little more than a continued invitation to jump the fence. (or, crawl under or through it, as the case may be.)
Call me a bigot, but what good does it do to continually pardon the burglars if you refuse to beef up the security system in your home?
While O will argue that the Regime has enforced current immigration legislation, and that additional security will create even more obstacles to legalizing the roughly 12 million illegal aliens thought to be living in the U.S., this is preposterous.
Starting last year, the Regime defiantly declined to enforce existing federal law regarding the so-called “Dreamers” – immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children. While O’s election-year pandering drew praise from Hispanic groups, it brought criticism from those who objected to el presidente’s clear circumvention of Congress and existing federal legislation.
So, today’s “O Show” will most likely be yet another performance by a megalomaniac who behaves as if he carried all 50 states and was reelected by 20 points. Makes no difference that “the gang of eight” agreed on a citizenship-for-security compromise; el presidente, will most likely attack Congressional Republicans who largely oppose a new amnesty for illegal immigrants program.
Knowing O (how do you say “king” in Spanish?), I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets around to suggesting Republicans are racist again.
