Obama Has 5 Years To Ram Through Amnesty

From a cheering Politico:

Obama: I’ve got ‘five years’ left to solve immigration


In an interview with Univision Radio, President Barack Obama said that he has "five years" left in his presidency to figure out issues like comprehensive immigration reform. Striking a confident note about his reelection prospects, Obama assured a largely Hispanic audience that he has not given up on getting an immigration bill done — one that would provide a pathway to citizenship.

"My presidency is not over," Obama told Univision’s Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo. "I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done."

So don’t make a big fuss about it now and upset the gringo voters. In fact, Obama probably assumed the gringos would never hear anything about this interview, since it was on Univision.

Obama also said that Hispanic voters would ultimately face an easy choice in deciding between him and the Republican nominee in November — emphasizing his support for comprehensive immigration reform and a pathway to citizenship.

Meaning, amnesty.

"So far, … we haven’t seen any of the Republican candidates even support immigration reform. In fact, their leading candidate said he would veto even the DREAM Act, much less comprehensive immigration reform," Obama said, in an apparent reference to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. "So the choice at the presidential level will not be that difficult."

In fact, Romney is the strictest conservative in the current field when it comes to amnesty.

Obama also defended his administration’s approach to immigration, which has been characterized by a high level of deportations, saying that the law needed to be changed and Congress needs to act

Which sounds like, once the election is over, Obama will find a way to stop deporting even hardened criminals. Who are the only people he is now (grudgingly) deporting.

Hispanic voters remain an important part of Obama’s coalition, though his approval rating has dropped 30 points among Hispanics from a 2009 high of 86 percent approval. A more recent Univision/Latino Decisions poll, however, puts his approval back up to 72 percent. In 2008, Obama won the Latino vote by a 36-point spread, beating John McCain 67 percent to 31 percent, according to national exit polls.

So why should the Republicans even try? Since you can’t be any more pro-amnesty than John McCain was.

    The news was reporting Obama’s gas increase is harming the Latino immigrants.

    They played a bit of a campaign speech he just made to minorities where he complained of the Republicans complaining of his gas hikes, that the terrible Republicans just want to drill, drill, drill oil and ruin the environment and it appeared the audience had deaf ears as they responded in silence.
    He just couldn’t get a cheer or clap. Hope he keeps telling that speech over and over.

    He is defending a lie. A report out today has the deportations for the fourth quarter of 2011 dropping by 1/3. Apparently, his efforts to have ICE stand-down by diktat are proving fruitful.

    Why bother Congress to legislate amnesty when you can “bypass Congress when they do not act”?

      BigOil, he has had DHS Chief going public that Obama has deported more than any president in history and it’s a lie. My small city is back to hiring illegals to poorly build roads and that is no shovel ready jobs for America.

      Further the Teachers and their Union in the state are ignoring State regulations and spending a fortune
      in schooling the illegals.

      In a large country at the very least they are going after the landlords who rent their older homes which at least contains the most violent Mexican gang areas, by condemning their property and moving the illegals into nicer homes. One family attended one English speaking class and now have a nicer home.

      Pretty easy papers to enroll and American child in school, prove you live in the district, but the forms in Spanish grow with the boxes to check if they need extra help in getting an apartment in the district.

      Mexicans stealing and on food stamps is at an all time high. It’s the Teacher Unions that have so much power in all this activity.

      Recently, the news was focused in LA California where the ongoing molestation of teachers was because of their Teacher’s Union keeping jobs for the perps. Didn’t say which teachers union.

      The enormous growth in number of Spanish speaking only TV cable channels and radio stations since Obama came into office is more evidence of a higher demand.

      Big Oil is — as always — absolutely correct.

      Regarding the regime’s allegedly “high level of deportations” —

      A great many aliens who attempt to enter the country illegally are stopped at the border. In these cases, they are simply turned away and go back to Mexico, a procedure that the agency historically has called “voluntary returns.” Many of these people will attempt to reenter later the same day or the following day. Each time they are stopped by the Border Patrol, it is counted as a voluntary return.

      Big Sis has ordered ICE to change the way voluntary returns are reported. They are no longer counted as returns, but instead they are now being counted as “deportations.” 
The purpose is to boost the regime’s deportation numbers, in order to give the utterly false impression that the regime is effectively protecting the border, when in fact nothing could be further from the truth.

      Also note that the House Subcommittee on Immigration is holding hearings on the IG’s report exposing the regime’s “get-to-yes” policy. The IG reported that the regime is pressuring conscientious USCIS agency personnel with threats of demotions or transfers; immigration inspectors are being ordered to rubber stamp visa applications even when the aliens are inadmissible to the US, and to grant immigration benefits even in cases of fraud or ineligibility.

      The data “shows that the overall denial rate for non-immigrant worker visas has fallen over 30 percent since President Obama took office in 2009, and that the approval rate for all immigrant benefits is at an all-time high of 91 percent.” USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas has accused agency employees who deny applications as having “black spots on their hearts.”


      Also note that Nerobama has appointed Cecilia Munoz to run the White House Domestic Policy Council. Munoz is a former vice president of La Raza, where for 20 years she was the chief advocate for open borders. Munoz is co-author of the infamous Morton Memo and the regime’s backdoor amnesty program.

      I can’t help but think this has the dubious distinction of sending not only the message they want people to get, but also of sending a message to the hispanic community that they are deporting large numbers of them. I mean, when the news goes out that “this administration is marked by a high number of deportations” then what is the average hispanic to think but that Obama is a liar and is sending people back to Meh-hee-koe anyhow.

      You can’t have it both ways, Barry. You can’t whine that the clock is fast and then bitch when people show up late.

      However, this is another characteristic of people who think they are “slicker than slick” and who really couldn’t even come up to the level of a schlocky two-bit used car sales hack. “Heh, heh, I’ve got them in the palm of my hand. Hey! What’s that?! One of ’em just peed in my hand!” Yep….you may(think you) have me in the palm of your hand, but you can’t control what I do there.

      Two things, 1) If this asshat gets re-elected, he will really let loose the hounds of hell. 2) If not, get ready for riots, or at the very least, screaming bloody murder at how “racist” the nation has become and “how they just can’t tolerate having a black president”. But you see, again, they can’t have it both ways. For if/when Obie the manchild loses…the Democrats will HAVE to put up a minority candidate every-single-time from here on out. Why? Because they will catch hell from their own looney-tune cabal and thus, every white newsie, reporter, operative is now obligated to kiss their collective ass. Otherwise, they’ll get the same heat that has (so far) been reserved for those racist republicans.

      I would , however, prefer to watch the comedy from a secure place elsewhere on planet Earth…but captain zero has made sure that no place is safe, perhaps intentionally.

    80%-100% Evil: Liberal Democrats: Know what they are doing is evil, enjoy doing it, encourage others to participate. Psychopaths who enjoy inflicting extreme torture on their victims. Absolutely deaf to others’ suffering. No remorse, or emotion other than joy from political maneuvering. Sick pleasure knowing that their manipulations elicit a painful response from the victims. Incapable of being shamed or embarrassed, despite their level of guilt.
    Ex: Clinton, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Jessie Jackson, Al Gore, Saul Alinsky, Black Caucus.

    60%-80% Evil: Moderate Democrats:Know what they are doing is wrong. Are interested in ignoring evil in exchange for flowery excuses, and the benefit of getting re-elected with evil social programs that people think are good. Are too timid or stupid to stand up against evil when pressured. Cowardly, allow evil to continue knowing they have the power to prevent it. Selfish political careerists who only look to the next election.
    Ex: Arlen Specter, Evan Bayh, Joe Lieberman, Alan Grayson, Ted Kennedy.

    40%-60% Evil: Liberal Republicans.Know evil when they see it, but almost never have the courage to articulate arguments against it. Cave in to evil at the slightest hint of pressure. Prefer to focus on the few short-term benefits resulting from evil, rather than the long-term result of evil. More interested in compromising with evil rather than defeating it.
    Ex: Olympia Snow, John McCain, Susan Collins, George H.W. Bush, Mitt Romney.

    20%-40% Evil: Conservative Republicans. Put up a good fight on issues of pure evil, but it’s a sliding scale. Often easily get worn out on issues, only to place their energy on a new issue, instead of hammering and completing the argument on an old one. Are so interested in defeating evil, they engage in it themselves with military adventurism overseas, unnecessary new departments, oppressive anti-terrorism laws, after-the-fact, worthless airport security.
    Ex: George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John Boehner, Newt Gingrich

    0%-20% Evil: Libertarians / Constitution Party. 100% know what evil is, and how it works. Would dismantle the mechanisms of evil: czars, departments, empire expansion, dependency apparati. Are interested in ignoring private evil as an inevitability of life, and a freedom of personal choice with consequences, but also stamping out industrialized evil conducted by governments. Would rather vote down a bill with 20% evil and 80% good just to avoid the 20%. Unwilling to fight evil with evil unless absolutely necessary. Want to replace good that was voted away by evil.
    Ex: Ron Paul, Judge Napolitano, Amish, NRA and single issue groups, Ex-Pats who have washed their hands of the whole event by turning in their passports.

    When talking about immigration, amnesty, gas prices, health care, be sure to use this guide to help you understand the angle and intention of the politician trying to “solve” the latest government-made crisis.

    Petronis, wow.

    The returned immigrants number game is startling. Also, the link of the organization you
    gave with the lower-case letters (to go unnoticed) is packed with Government information such as

    President’s Budget Seeks Cuts in Immigration Enforcement

    Last week President Obama renewed his effort to undermine immigration enforcement by releasing a budget for FY 2013 that cuts funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and important programs it oversees.

    The Dept of Homeland’s Security report is linked.

    I shouldn’t be shocked by the articles listed above in how Congress and the Senate are all
    aiding the immigrants costing us a very serious fortune.

    While, Mitt & Newt support lax immigration and giving them perks it appears all our leaders are ignoring a very costly. I’m betting added up to be a $ Trillion. The $ cuts in ICE will end up costing another $ Trillion. What’s it cost to America to support this giant Villa?

    Here again is the important link you posted. FAIR
