Obama: US Always Has Been
a Nation of Immigrants

Associated Press, by Darlene Superville

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/4/2014 5:23:47 PM

Washington - Celebrating the ethnic diversity of America, President Barack Obama said more than two dozen foreign-born service members who became U.S. citizens at the White House on the Fourth of July are vivid reminders that welcoming immigrants "is central to our way of life." He pleaded anew for new immigration policies, saying the vast range of backgrounds and experiences that has made America a melting pot for more than 200 years also makes the country stronger. He argued that the system must be retooled for the U.S. to remain the greatest nation on earth. "The basic idea of welcoming

#1 . Legal immigrants, not illegals. #2. And I am so tired of hearing that this country is nation of immigrants. NO, it isn´t. Most of the people in this country were born here. And so were there their parents. And their parents. And all their ancestors came here legally.

Exactly #1 and the most irritating thing for me is the spirit with which that phrase is always spoken. Tired, tired and tired of hearing politicians insinuate that any immigrant, legal or illegal, is BETTER with BETTER intentions toward this great country. Not !!!!!

"A nation of immigrants." So, what. As for the melting pot, that is a thing of the past. In modern America, illegals gather in enclaves, refuse to assimilate, collect welfare and hate America.

Wrong:

We were a nation of Colonists. A very different thing.

We became a nation of immigrants. And a lot of that had to do with keeping the black man down.

My ancestors came to this country between 1615 and 1914. The early ancestors fought in the Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, both for the North and the South. The latter came in through Ellis Island. They fought, along with the others in WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, not sure about Desert Storm and later. They all immigrated legally, they all got jobs, they all learned the language, The French, the Dutch, the Swedes, and the Norwegians. And they all paid taxes.
If the new immigrants want to follow those rules, welcome to them. I have some good friends who came in legally, from England, South Africa, Vietnam. They all speak English, they all have jobs, they all pay taxes. Welcome to them.

Obama needs to get a few things straight in his head; immigrants are those who are allowed to live here permanently and work in the U.S. What we now have coming into our country are ´illegal aliens´, people entering the U.S. without authorization. Yes, it sounds harsh, but these thousands of children and young people are ´illegal aliens´.

As an aside, we just received an email from the over-all governing body of our church which repeatedly referred to these children as ´migrants´. Sure wish they would stop playing with words.

legal immigrants, you fool. My grandparents were legal immigrants. And they were detained until it was determined that they were disease free, that they had sponsors and a place to live - and that they would NOT be a burden on the gov´t. These people (and thousands and thousands of others) assimilated. They obtained their citizenship proudly and as soon as possible. Their children were raised as Americans rather than hyphenated anything.

What a load of shite...

My husband´s parents came through Ellis Island from Hungary and you just didn´t get off the boat and walk into New York. There were tough health examinations and many were turned away to return to the countries they came from. It was pretty cut and dried. His parents found jobs, learned our language and went to classes to become citizens. My father-in-law worked one job until he retired after 50 years from Firestone Tire and Rubber. That´s an immigrant.

The term "A Nation of Immigrants" is a bogus term that was invented by the liberal Democrats before the 1986 amnesty, now they have brought it back again. In actuality most people living in the USA today are not immigrants but are "Americans", a word that many liberal Democrat politicians usually dismiss unless it´s usage is to describe all the peoples living in North America, Central America, and South America.

Name a country that lets others just walk over a boarder and free load off the government. Try walking into Mexico. How about our US Marine held in prison for three months now and the O in the White House has done nothing to get this hero released.

In order to apply for a library card one must show identification, yet these people come here with only verbal identification, no health records, no money, and no destination.

The excuse, they´re kids. Why is Obama so secretive? How come a congressman who represents Oklahoma was denied entrance into a camp there?

Zippy knows nothing about American history or the Constitution. Nor does he know the meaning of "illegal" vs "legal"

As the debate examining prohibiting late term abortions has unfolded, I can´t help but think of my youngest grandson who was born a few years ago, weighing only 2 lbs 5 oz at 28 weeks. After his birth, I spent a lot of time with him in the neonatal intensive care unit, watching him grow stronger every day until he was able to finally go home with his family.

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

Seattle– Republicans and some political pundits have taken sharp aim at President Barack Obama for maintaining his fundraising schedule amid a period of global unrest. Not among those complaining? Democrats who stand to benefit from the millions of dollars in campaign cash Obama will help pull in this week during a three-day West Coast swing, bringing him into the homes of entertainment and real estate bigwigs in Seattle, the Silicon Valley and Los Angeles. Based on descriptions of Obama’s fundraisers from Democratic officials, Obama could raise north of $6 million during the trip, which comes at the same time as

President Barack Obama said on Monday that he’s in favor of Washington, D.C., gaining statehood. “I’m in D.C., so I’m for it,” he said to a room of mostly young, minority boys who were at the White House for Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative. “Folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else.” Obama said he’s supported the idea of statehood for D.C. “for quite sometime” but acknowledged that “the politics of it” would make it something difficult to move through Congress.

Samantha Power, US Ambassador to the United Nations, gave an impassioned speech to the UN after passage of Security Council Resolution 2166 on the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17. She is justifiably “horrified and enraged” by the post crash cover-up. Specifically, “by the clear intention of some to obstruct an investigation into how the passengers and crew died.” How rich. Where was similar “horror and outrage” when the President, Secretary of State, White House Press Secretary, and UN Ambassador blamed a YouTube video for the deadly attack on the Benghazi embassy?

Obama on Tuesday was starting a three-day West Coast trip, scheduled to attend at least five fundraising events in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles less than four months ahead of midterm elections that could change Washington´s balance of power. The trip comes as Obama is dealing with a series of high-profile tests of his presidency, from Eastern Europe to the Middle East to the Southern

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens
