Obama’s Immigration Plan…stuck on stupid!

The "Latte Salute"

The “Latte Salute”

So without further adieu we went over to “The Obama Strategic-Executive-Order” room to listen to his plan and development for America’s broken immigration system.

“America’s immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers and there are 11 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country.”

One, and of the first notion; America never had an immigration system period. There exists extraordinary documentation on how immigration matters should be handled; however, this by no means characterizes any system whatsoever, or executing the basic premise of punishment would have worked wonders.

Two, of the second part, it is interesting to note that President Obama would stoop so low as to use this excuse. A couple of issues stand out when one reads this rubbish. The employers that “game” the system are those that have been under the radar prior to being caught. Moreover, the president or congressional officials have not wanted to push the envelope with severe fines. This of course takes away from an officials lobbying prowess, and they do not want to face bad press. With the way that immigration policy has been handled in the past — haphazardly and very leizze-faired — without any encumbrance of maintaining the law why would not big corporations go for inexpensive labor?

The idea of 11 million people living in the shadows is easily a choice they have made. With deportations, and the way the law has been manipulated there, coupled with less and ineffective law enforcement it is beyond time to “come clean” by upholding the rules and laws.

The best and most proper way to explain Obama’s executive action is to illuminate what is in his plan. Therefore, we shall present to you the four (4) basic elements taken from his abysmal, and pathetic plans. Starting with Number One:

Continuing to Strengthen Border Security   President Obama has doubled the number of Border Patrol agents and today border security is stronger than it has ever been. But there is more work to do. The President’s proposal gives law enforcement the tools they need to make our communities safer from crime. And by enhancing our infrastructure and technology, the President’s proposal continues to strengthen our ability to remove criminals and apprehend and prosecute threats to our national security.

There are those times when I wish I could be on the House and/or Senate floors during a State of the Union Address, or maybe one invited guest to meet with President Obama in a “round-table discussion” or meeting with immigration advocates and special interest groups. Why? To show this “President” that not all Americans are stupid; when in fact, he is stuck on stupid!

Hey Barack Obama, Cabinet Officials, Members of Congress, and the lot of you folks…How does anyone consider the border to be more secure by increasing the number of Border Patrol Agents, who are no longer responsible for detaining, deporting, or otherwise upon apprehension of an illegal/undocumented alien from another country? What happened to the U.S. Border Patrol as well as the U.S. I.C.E. agents? Yep, they were issued command directives not to arrest any illegal’s, in fact, run and hide from on-coming traffic that is aimed at you? These honorable agents were given the orders to assist the 90,000 homeless youths along with their parents. So is it safe to say that immigration is at an all time low without even counting these some 100,000 additional aliens? (Please  http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/immigration/border-security)    

Improve partnerships with border communities and law enforcement. Please understand that one gets livid when irresponsible, make-shift proposals are put down as “Plans from the President.”Listen and read up! How long has the elected officials been working actively to secure the border? I hope you get my point. Increasing boots on the ground does absolutely nothing as long as these officers are given command directives before letting their boots hit the ground.

If one wishes to remove hardened criminals from the Nation, then one does not ever release them freely like President Obama did during the 36,000 hardened criminal release program. Furthermore, one does not release — only to provide for 90,000 unaccompanied minors — and giving them their “own reconnaissance” to report to court date, when one is aware of the statistics of no-shows hovering at 96 percent. This is P-O-L-I-T-I-C-S people; moreover, demagoguery insofar as one is doing this for himself and not for the better outcome for the U.S.A.

Streamlining Legal Immigration   Legal immigration should be simple and efficient. The President’s proposal provides visas to foreign entrepreneurs looking to start businesses here, helps the most promising foreign graduate students in science and math stay in this country after graduation, and reunites families in a timely and humane manner.

So, what is this proposal about other than putting one’s country up for sale? Looking to help the “promising” foreign graduates in science and math to stay in this country to what — teach or an entry level engineering position? That is just plain stupid!

Cracking down on Employers that Hire Illegal’s  The President’s proposal is designed to stop businesses from exploiting the system by knowingly hiring undocumented workers. It holds these companies accountable, and gives employers who want to play by the rules a reliable way to verify that their employees are here legally.     (See  http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/immigration/strengthening-enforcement)  

A Path to Earned Citizenship  The President’s proposal provides undocumented immigrants with a legal way to earn citizenship so they can come out of the shadows. It holds them accountable by requiring they pass background checks, pay taxes and a penalty, go to the back of the line, and learn English. It requires everyone to play by the same rules. And just how do you expect to do this feat? (See http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/immigration/earned-citizenship)
