In an abrupt switch from his months of work to bring immigration reform back from life support, Speaker John Boehner told reporters today that the issue cannot move forward until President Obama proves he can be a trustworthy partner to implement the law as written.

Paul Ryan’s Super Clever Idea for Illegal Immigrants
redstate.com ^ | 1/30/14 | Daniel Horowitz
Now that House Republicans have passed a trillion dollar omnibus and trillion dollar farm bill, they are prepared to tackle the most pressing issue of our time – granting benefits to illegal immigrants.
The key to understanding the politics of illegal immigration is that this is not just about amnesty (legalization and/or citizenship). It’s not just that these people are calling for amnesty because of logistics, yet desire an end to illegal immigration in the future. If that were the case they would simply implement the enforcement measures that have been passed on numerous occasions (eight times, in the case of Visa exit-entry), and address those already here from a position of strength – knowing that this won’t happen again.

Only a few weeks ago, Graham breathlessly claimed that any effort to include gay binational couples in the immigration bill would cause him to withdraw his support for the legislation, effectively killing it.
Some of us at the time had been arguing that the Republicans were bluffing; that the GOP is desperate to get immigration reform passed in order to weaken the lock the Democratic party has on the Latino vote (a population on the rise in terms of its percentage of the electorate). There is no way the GOP is going to risk killing immigration reform for anything. At least not the Senate GOP.

I think the current controversy over immigration reform points to a larger issue in America today, which is that Americans are essentially split on the very idea of what America is and should be.
It used to be that Americans mostly agreed that in order to attain citizenship, immigrants had to not only come to this country legally but also demonstrate, after training and study in the American system, that they believed in the unique United States Constitution and embraced what it means to be an American.
Though that still occurs in the naturalization process, we seem to have abandoned it altogether in connection with the immigration debate.
Our U.S. Congress leads this nation over a demographic cliff, an environmental inferno, into standard of living cave and a quality of life purgatory. The approaching amnesty for 20 million illegal alien migrants working and residing in our country in violation of our laws—ultimately ends up becoming 100 million more immigrants added to America.
Astoundingly, no one in Congress sees the final folly, the eventual outcome, the end result and the catastrophic final curtain. Why don’t they see what I see? Why don’t the American people understand it like I recognize it? How can so many Americans be so completely out of touch with the final result of an amnesty?

This “immigration bill” (why not call it what it is a so-called attempt to deal with ILLEGAL immigration) not just an immigration plan – why do they leave the WORD illegal out – supposedly has some key components:
1.) Penalties. 2.) Back to the end of the line. 3.) Illegals cannot get gov’t handouts (food stamps, etc). I thought that for all these years they weren’t eligible, weren’t receiving them an/or they never did in the first place… 4.) An E-Verify system.

Less than a week after the publication of my latest book, Crime & Incompetence: Guide to America’s Immigration Crisis, a predication was proven correct: President Obama was lying to the American people when he claimed illegal immigrants would go to the back of the line after legal immigrants as part of his comprehensive immigration reform.
During President Obama’s celebrated immigration reform speech in Las Vegas, on January 29, he claimed, “We’ve got to lay out a path—a process that includes passing a background check, paying taxes, paying a penalty, learning English, and then going to the back of the line, behind all the folks who are trying to come here legally. That’s only fair, right?”

By: Dr Ron Paul
Whenever the federal government decides to reform something we can be fairly sure that the problem is about to get worse, especially if they call the plan bi-partisan. The bi-partisan immigration reform proposal launched last week in the US Senate will be no different.
The new plan, introduced by Sens. McCain and Schumer, would provide a path to citizenship for many of those in the United States illegally. This would only begin after the borders are deemed secure and applicants have paid fees for their illegal entry. They must also pay back taxes on their earnings while working here without government permission. Those on a path to citizenship would be subject to background checks and would be monitored while in the US.
Yeh, George W claimed to not want to be king either…..but he wanted veto power over the states, didn’t he?!!!!!

Yes John, creating millions of new Democrat voters demanding free stuff is absolutely what the GOP needs
…..Since 1965, our U.S. Government, led by forever Senator Teddy Kennedy, passed the Immigration Reform Act, which bumped annual immigration from 100,000 to 1.2 to 1.5 million annually from third world countries. As the U.S. filled up with poverty-prone citizens, President Lyndon Baines Johnson passed the Great Society Act that handed out welfare checks, housing, free lunches and food stamps like candy on Halloween to millions of new-comers. Our national debt exceeded $1.1 trillion by the end of his term.
Those Great Society welfare queens churned out babies faster than a Ford assembly line. Each new baby gave the ‘poor’ mother a car payment, new TV, fashionable clothing, dish washer and unlimited credit. One minority woman in Detroit, Michigan, where I worked in the 70s, 80s and 90s, pumped out 24 children with more than a dozen fathers. Her first three girls birthed their own babies by age 15. The woman and her children became the first wave of ‘cyclical welfare’ poverty in America. Score one for the idealistic zeal of democrats!
As you can imagine, thousands of readers respond to my commentaries because they can see this immigration onslaught affecting their own communities. They see its effects in their stores with shop lifting and homes with burglaries, their schools with dramatic flunk out rates and violence, hospitals with anchor babies by the tens of thousands. They see churches turning from English to Spanish language along with radio stations and television stations serving millions of Spanish speakers. We now have Arabic language TV stationsin Islamic strongholds like Detroit.
Samuel Huntington, in The Clash of Civilizations, said, “It is my hypothesis that the fundamental source of conflict in this new world will not be primarily ideological or primarily economic. The great divisions among humankind and the dominating source of conflict will be cultural. Nation states will remain the most powerful actors in world affairs, but the principle conflicts of global politics will occur between nations and groups of different civilizations. The clash of civilizations will dominate global politics. The fault lines between civilizations will be the battle lines of the future.”
Frosty Wooldridge, How to Destroy America… ~ ”We are the only country in history that ever deliberately changed its ethnic makeup,,,” ( Gov Richard Lamm) « CITIZEN.BLOGGER.1984+ THE.GUNNY.G BLOG.EMAIL
”We are the only country in history that ever deliberately changed its ethnic makeup, and history has few examples of ‘diversity’ creating a stable society.”
…“Having made America a bilingual–bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology’,” Lamm said. “I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra:
“That because immigration has been good for America, it must ALWAYS be good. I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. A profound silence swept over the room.
Finally, he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hansen’s book “MEXIFORNIA.” His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”There was no applause. A chilling apprehension rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference.
Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages rip the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness.
We all know President Obama is rewriting our immigration law on his own. He has issued new orders that grant certain illegal immigrants a waiver to deportation. Details of this new policy was released on
Friday and for the paltry sum of $465, illegal immigrants that were brought to the United States as children can apply for a waiver and a work permit. In other words, trading illegal status for legal status. Sounds like a good deal, at least for them.
The United States of America is a nation of self-governed people who believe in the Rule of Law and the U.S. Constitution as the Supreme Law of our Land. Hating crime is not a “hate crime” and neither is dealing directly with those who commit crimes against our nation, our sovereignty and our security.
Yet the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is waging all-out war on American citizens who are fed up with watching their government operate in a lawless fashion, refusing to enforce our laws upon illegal invaders while overreaching in their enforcement attempts against American taxpayers. Watch this SPLC video for Law Enforcement, labeling patriotic American taxpayer backwoods militia crackpot, asserting that people who oppose “unconstitutional laws” are dangerous anarchists.

Mitt Romney criticized President Barack Obama’s immigration plan on Thursday, saying that as president, he will “put in place my own long-term solution that will replace and supersede the President’s temporary measure.”……………
President Obama’s latest political ploy — granting new “rights” out of thin air, by executive order, to illegal immigrants who claim that they were brought into the country when they were children — is all too typical of his short-run approach to the country’s long-run problems.
It’s said that desperate times call for desperate measures. But in these dismal economic and political times, the Obama administration has called for unlawful measures that grant amnesty to potentially millions of illegal immigrants. Read more…
Governments have never been known to reform themselves and the current debate over immigration reform is no different than the notion that government will cut spending and clip its own wings. By reform, D.C. politicians mean, to make that which is currently illegal, legal.
Lawmakers have been stopped from passing amnesty for millions of illegal aliens living in America. But they have not been forced to enforce our immigration and naturalization laws and even when Border States attempt to enforce those laws, the federal government sues the state on behalf of illegal immigrants.
In a current piece issued by the Census Bureau, titled Minorities now surpass whites in US births, Bureau racial statistics chief Roderick Harrison states – “This is an important landmark.” – “This generation is growing up much more accustomed to diversity than its elders.”
Of course, most of those “minorities” are in the United States illegally. This is of no great concern to Harrison. But what does concern Harrison is this – “We remain in a dangerous period where those appealing to anti-immigration elements are fueling a divisiveness and hostility that might take decades to overcome,” Harrison said.
For several years now, Americans have been wrongly accused of being “anti-immigration” just because they want their immigration and naturalization laws to be enforced. But calling someone anti-immigration because they oppose illegal immigration is akin to calling them anti-banking because they oppose bank robbery.
Like many sniveling liberals today, Harrison completely ignores the fact that we are talking about criminals here, people who have broken into our country illegally and make a career out of flouting our laws and undermining American sovereignty and security. Harrison is not at all concerned with these facts, he is instead worried about Americans “hostility” towards illegal invaders, as if Americans oppose immigration altogether.
My work on the population/immigration front continues in almost mind-numbing frustration. Any time I bring up reducing mass immigration—the other folks out there start hurling names. Hurtful names such as racist, xenophobe and nativist. Chicken Little is a big one. It’s most disconcerting in that I have been integrated as a military brat since I was born. I taught in the inner city with 95 percent minorities. I still teach every race, creed and color with my volunteer ski instruction at Winter Park. I have always mixed well with any races. After traveling all over the world on my bicycle, I have deep and abiding respect for all races, creeds and colors as I know they (we) are all doing the best we can in life.
I am hoping to carve a wooden bowl for America in order to help all Americans face their own fate on multiple levels. It’s incredibly frustrating.
Nonetheless, I have pushed forward and, yet, I have made zero impact. My prayers have failed to get me on national media of any kind. I haven’t gotten on “60 Minutes,” Charlie Rose, Today Show, Meet the Press, Face the Nation and a dozen other shows even with continued requests.
The fact remains that Americans will add another 100 million immigrants to this country by 2050 and the planet will see another three billion people added within 38 years. It’s nuts and the human race faces daunting challenges as to food, water, energy and resources oil declines. I think our environment may crash even sooner as we destabilize the planet’s balancing systems. We will certainly run out of water, arable land, energy and finally, food.
With that knowledge, I ponder whether it is worth racking my mind and heart and taking enormous time to write and speak about it. Quite frankly, very, very few care. And if they do, they are afraid to speak up—especially because they don’t want to be called names. It’s an interesting predicament.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department on Thursday urged the Supreme Court to stay out of a lawsuit involving Arizona’s immigration law, saying lower courts properly blocked tough provisions targeting illegal immigrants.
The state law is a challenge to federal policy and is designed to establish Arizona’s own immigration policy, the department’s solicitor general said in a filing with the justices. Arizona says the law is an effort to cooperate with the federal government.
Summary: This option is the bill H.R. 4437 sponsored by Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner that passed the House of Representatives in 2005. This bill would have been so effective in combating illegal immigration that some 1 million illegal aliens marched in cities around the United States on May 1, 2006 to protest it.
The Republican presidential hopeful made the eyebrow-raising remarks at a campaign stop in Oskaloosa, Iowa on Saturday after a Latino college student asked what Bachmann would do to the children of undocumented immigrants.
She said she would “not do anything,” for the children, adding”Their parents are the ones who brought them here,” Bachmann said, as first reported by MSNBC. “They did not have the legal right to come to the United States. We do not owe people who broke our laws to come into the country. We don’t owe them anything.”

Immigration, the Republicans, and the End of White America:
The sources of America’s immigration problems—and a possible solution
Last June the U.S. Census disclosed that non-white births in America were on the verge of surpassing the white total and might do so as early as the end of this year. Such an event marks an unprecedented racial watershed in American history.
Over the last few years,
The illegal immigration debate has become an urgent focal point of American politics. Liberal politicians from the White House on down have vigorously advocated for illegal immigrant amnesty and lax border enforcement in a naked attempt to bolster prospective voter rolls.
This controversy has been brewing for some time in Maryland, whose Hispanic population more than doubled between 2000 and 2010. Under Governor Martin O’Malley’s sanctuary policies the state has become an illegal alien magnet. The current cost of illegals in Maryland is estimated to be $1.7 billion per year, more than three-quarters of the state’s $2 billion structural deficit.
Taxpayer ire overflowed this March with the passage of Maryland’s Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, granting in-state college tuition rates to illegals. A nonpartisan coalition of concerned Marylanders launched a petition drive to delay the measure and place it on the 2012 ballot as a referendum. They needed 55,736 signatures. They received twice that amount………….

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Friday that President Obama’s half-uncle, an illegal immigrant who was picked up but has reportedly been released from jail, appears to have benefited from the new “backdoor amnesty” the administration announced last month.
“It appears there is a double standard — one for President Obama’s family and one for everyone else,” Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican, said. “Last year, President Obama’s illegal immigrant aunt was granted asylum and now his illegal immigrant uncle has been released from [the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency] custody, even though he was arrested by authorities for drunk driving.”
Mr. Smith said the case will be the first “test case” for a new Homeland Security policy announced last month that gives immigration authorities more discretion to let illegal immigrants go, rather than pursue efforts to deport them.
The Boston Globereported Friday that Onyango Obama, the half-brother of the president’s father, was released from jail Thursday after being held for more than two weeks on an immigration detainer after he was arrested on a drunk-driving charge.

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Obama Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detailing behind-the-scenes efforts by the Obama administration to bypass Congress and grant amnesty at least one million illegal aliens by suspending immigration deportation proceedings against “DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act kids” and other illegal aliens…
The records include emails from press outlets investigating the Obama administration’s efforts to suspend the deportations of students who would be covered under The DREAM Act, which was under consideration by Congress. The DREAM Act would have permitted certain immigrant students who have grown up in the U.S. to apply for temporary legal status, eventually obtain permanent legal status, and become eligible for U.S. citizenship if they go to college or serve in the U.S. military. The DREAM Act has failed repeatedly to pass Congress. The DREAM Act initially could provide amnesty for over one million illegal immigrants and would have cost over $6 billion a year….
“These documents show the Obama administration is lying about its stealth amnesty activities and its alarming contempt for Congress and the rule of law. Frankly, these documents show that Obama immigration officials don’t even know what the law is! The Obama administration cannot simply pick and choose which federal immigration laws it will enforce. In its zeal to curry favor with the illegal alien lobby and secure Hispanic votes for a second term, the Obama administration is exercising raw executive power to change the law by granting illegal aliens amnesty in a way that strikes at the heart of our constitutional system and the rule of law. This is a festering constitutional crisis,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton…

Unless a country is allowed to maintain its own identity, history and culture while allowing people to integrate, it leads to ethnic strife and death. Insisting that those joining their community share the same language and accept the culture of their new homes, does not mean the emigrants may not maintain their own culture in their personal dealings. It does not, in any way, denigrate the emigrants culture.
It does, however,mean the blatantly obvious:
”You have left your home country, and you are free and welcome in ours. As long as you learn our language and respect our laws, and the rights of our citizens to continue to run our government and our lives as though you never arrived on our shores, you are welcome. If you feel you cannot join and live within the parameters of the free culture you have arrived in, you have the same freedom to leave our shores as you had to come here. You do not have the right to try to change this country into anything.”
No country can survive the Balkanization created when weak-kneed politicians allow emigrants to set up their own cultural enclaves, complete with foreign justice systems and “No-go zones”for the host countries law enforcement………………
This morning, I double-checked to be sure the word “illegal” was still a word in the dictionary. As of this morning, it still means “criminal, felonious, illegitimate, illicit, lawless, unlawful, and wrongful.” However, it is quite obvious, that the longer Progressive Democrats have carte’ blanche to do what they want, the closer the word “illegal” gets to becoming extinct.
It is difficult to determine who it is this administration is particularly interested in protecting. Law-abiding, hardworking folks who mind their business and turn their attention to providing for their families, seem to fall by the wayside, while the administration focuses on fulfilling President Obama’s commitment to “fundamentally transform” America……………..
