Obama: ‘It Doesn’t Make Sense
to Have 11 Million People Who Are
in This Country Illegally...’

Cybercast News Service., by Terence P. Jeffrey

Original Article

President Barack Obama--who oversees both the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security--said in a speech at the White House on Thursday that it does not make sense to have 11 million people in the United States “illegally.” The president said that the people "illegally" in the United States need to be given an “incentive” to stay here and become what he called “legalized citizens.” “It doesn’t make sense to have 11 million people who are in this country illegally without any incentive or any way for them to come out of the shadows, get right with the law,

It doesn´t make sense. The solution is to send all 11 million of them back from whence they came.

We all know the government screws up any endeavor besides military that it attempts, So here´s an idea with a double benefit: Bounty Hunters collect illegals and get paid per head when dropped off at border. They get the right to shoot to kill illegals that resist. A lot of jobs will be created, we get rid of illegals.

No Mr. President, what does not make sense is to not enforce the laws that are on the books. It is not at your bequest to pick and choose what laws are enforced, to support your agenda or regime.

Ok, so if you´re so worried about them, Mr. President, let´s give them permanent work visas. They can stay here, get car insurance, pay taxes and find jobs...

But the can´t VOTE. Still interested, Mr. President? I thought not.

A friend is a Canadian citizen living in this country for 40+ years. Her children are U.S. Citizens as well as her husband. A number of years ago...more than 10...she started the process to gain U.S. Citizenship. She progressed well and then her husband took a short assignment for his job to open a branch of his company in Canada. They lived in Canada about 3 years maintaining their home and paying taxes in the U.S. The immigration service told her she would have to begin the whole process over again. No amnesty for her! You would have to combine the vision of George Orwell and fantasy of Lewis Carroll to describe today´s America. Thank you liberals. As Charles Krauthammer said in his transition from left to right, "when the medicine is killing the patient, it is time to stop giving the medicine" .

Close the border first, and prove that nobody is coming through for at least a year. Then screen everyone that wants to become a citizen. If they have broken any other laws, send them out. Gradually the others can be given citizenship, but they can´t vote for at least 10 years.

We don´t have to send them back. All we have to do is cut off their freebees, all of them, and they will leave by them selves!!!!

No more free housing, food stamps, medical, Obama phones. There is no reason that they are getting these things that the citizens of this country worked hard for.

They are trespassing and freeloading and we are abetting their criminal acts!!!!

To all deportion proponents, go ahead. Start the process of deporting 11 million people. Figure out the logistics. Get back to me when you have a plan. In the meantime, let´s realize that we let them break the law with our lack of enforcement. Legalize the working ones in some way, deport the criminals and close the border ASAP.

Obama means amnesty, of course. If he says 11 million, then it is probably closer to 50 million.

Health care, destroy our foreign policy and amnesty. A legacy to be proud of. For a Marxist.

@20 "let´s realize that we let them break the law with our lack of enforcement."

So WE are responsible for foreign nationals sneaking into our country without any legal documentation? WE are responsible for the identity theft, abuse of our SSI, welfare system, education system and every other system they abuse? WE are responsible for billions of untaxed dollars being transferred out of our economy, while we still send foreign aid to these same countries? And WE are responsible for breaking up families if the parents are deported and abandon their children here instead of taking them back to their countries of origination? WE certainly are stupid, aren´t WE?

#20, illegal immigration and using fraudulent government documents are crimes.

We could solve the much of the immigration problem quickly and cheaply. Have the IRS check Tax ID numbers on W-2´s with the Social Security Administration. If there is a mismatch notify the employer and the employee that the employee cannot continue working and will be deported.

You can´t solve a problem if you don´t put disincentives in place, and one good one is to deport those who are here illegally. Start deporting illegals and their families. Other illegals will begin to go home rather than wait for deportation, knowing they will not be able to take anything with them. New illegal entrants will not be so quick to pay large sums of money to coyotes to sneak in. Round up the coyotes who bring them in. Beef up border guards.

I jumped through all those immigration hoops making me a legal resident of the US and later went through the citizenship process and I strongly resent the kid-glove treatment given to illegals who scrounge off the tax dollars I legally pay--and the employers who grow rich hiring them at low pay--they need to be prosecuted too.

P.S. Also do away with H-1B visas.

We wouldn´t need to "deport 11 million."

We would need to start enforcing the laws as written in a very public way, including Title 8 Section 1325 of The United States Code subsection D. What´s that you ask, here:

(d) Immigration-related entrepreneurship fraud
Any individual who knowingly establishes a commercial enterprise for the purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws shall be imprisoned for not more than 5 years, fined in accordance with title 18, or both.


Would this not encompass both the "immigration lawyer" telling them how to avoid the law and rights groups such as La Raza who also lead others to believe they can ignore any laws they don´t feel like following.

What about tax preparers who help illegal invaders claim EITC benefits for which they are not qualified?

After about 200 to 300 very public deportations, including their co-conspirators, the rest will self-deport in the hope that they might come back "legally" (at least more or less complying with the law).

Let´s talk about "fair"...

Why is it fair to give advantage to LAW BREAKERS over those people who are trying to do it legally?

Why is it fair to people whose wages are held artificially low because someone who is here ILLEGALLY will work for less?

Why is it fair that people who pay taxes have to support ILLEGALS through increased school taxes, outright welfare cash payments, etc... - to the detriment of other deserving poor who are here legally?

And why is it fair to privilege ILLEGALS who are only here because their impoverished country benefits from the lax border control of their northern neighbor and the intent of dems to gain voters - to the detriment of people who are not geographically advantaged?

I could go on if you are still clueless.

We could do worse, much worse (and in fact ARE doing far worse) than follow the lead of a country that has an eminently sensible set of immigration laws, which, in a nutshell, specify that non-citizens must:
-- be in the country legally;
-- have the means to sustain themselves economically;
-- not be burdens on society;
-- be of economic and social benefit to society;
-- be of good character and have no criminal records; and
-- contribute to the general well-being of the nation.

The laws also specify that:
-- immigration authorities have a record of each foreign visitor;
-- foreign visitors must not violate their visa status;
-- foreign visitors are banned from interfering in the country’s internal politics;
-- foreign visitors who enter under false pretenses will be imprisoned or deported;
-- foreign visitors who violate the terms of their entry will be imprisoned or deported; and
-- any persons who facilitate illegal immigration will be imprisoned.

Anyone care to hazard a guess as to the name of this most enlightened country? Hint: It starts with "M," and it ain´t Mozambique.

Obama: Right to vote ´threatened´ by GOP

President Obama on Friday said that Republicans were behind the biggest threat to voting rights in decades. “The principle of one person, one vote is the single greatest tool we have to redress an unjust status quo. You would think there would not be an argument about this anymore,” said Obama in an address to Rev. Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference in New York City. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” he added. The president directly blamed Republicans, saying new

They are joined by poet Elizabeth Alexander, who read at Obama´s 2009 inauguration, Chicago friends Kelly and Andrew Dibble, senior White House aide Valerie Jarrett and sportscaster and former NFL wide receiver Ahmad Rashad. Obama and Rashad played golf last month during an Obama family vacation in Florida. The first couple was in New York Friday for Al Sharpton´s National Action Network conference.

ORLAND, Calif.- It was a busload of opportunity: young, low-income, motivated students, destined to become the first in their families to go to college, journeying from the concrete sprawl of Los Angeles to a remote redwood campus 650 miles north. Those dreams shattered for some Thursday in an explosive freeway collision that left 10 dead - students, chaperones and both drivers - and dozens hospitalized. Desperate families awaited word about loved ones Friday, while investigators tried to figure out why a southbound FedEx big rig swerved across the grassy divide of California´s key artery before sideswiping a car and slamming into

President Reagan was holding a meeting in the Cabinet Room on March 25, 1985, when Press Secretary Larry Speakes came over to me, as communications director, with a concern. The White House was about to issue a statement on the killing of Major Arthur Nicholson, a U.S. army officer serving in East Germany. Maj. Nicholson had been shot in cold blood by a Russian soldier. Speakes thought the president´s statement, "This violence was unjustified," was weak. I agreed. We interrupted the president, who reread the statement, then said go ahead with it.

A copy of Barack and Michelle Obama’s tax returns released Friday shows that the first couple gave only .3 percent of their income to their church in 2013. The Obamas made a total of $59,251 in charitable contributions in 2013 — 12.3 percent of their income — but most of the donations went to primarily secular organizations. From their adjusted gross income of $481,098, the president and first lady gave $1,500 to St. John’s Church, an Episcopalian parish near the White House where they occasionally attend services. The rest of their giving went to 31 different charities, including the American Red

Instead of getting to work on my own tax return, I´d rather look at President Barack Obama´s. So the White House did me a favor by releasing the 2013 joint federal income tax return of Barack and Michelle Obama Friday afternoon. Here are some highlights: • The Obamas paid $98,169 in total federal income tax on adjusted gross income of $481,098. That´s an effective tax rate of 20.4 percent. • The Obamas are due a tax refund of $19,108. What should they spend it on? • Besides his salary, Obama reported $104,809 in business income from book sales. That´s down

Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870.

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and
