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?

President Obama’s unnerving happy talk

President Obama is not worried. And that is unnerving. British Prime Minister David Cameron presented to parliament on Monday the alarming conclusions of European leaders who had met in Brussels over the weekend: “The European Council believes the creation of an Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria and the Islamist extremism and export of terrorism on which it is based is a direct threat to every European country.” Cameron added: “To confront the threat of Islamist extremism, we need a tough, intelligent, patient and comprehensive approach to defeat the terrorist threat at its source.

MIAMI— More than 200,000 immigrants who bought insurance through President Barack Obama´s health care initiative could lose their coverage this month if they don´t submit proof this week they are legally in the country, but language barriers and computer glitches are hindering efforts to alert them. The government mailed letters in English and Spanish last month notifying people that if immigration and citizenship documents aren´t submitted by Friday, their coverage under the Affordable Care Act will end Sept. 30. However, few seem to be responding. U.S. Health and Human Services officials released information Tuesday showing that 239,000 of the original

Authorities in Kazakhstan are on high alert after a container holding the highly radioactive and dangerous substance caesium-137 disappeared in the west of the country, police said Tuesday. A police spokesman for the Mangistau region said the material -- used for medical purposes and also a by-product of nuclear explosions and reactors -- appeared to have fallen off a vehicle transporting it. "The container with the radioactive isotope caesium-137 has not been found so far," police spokesman Azamat Sarsenbayev told AFP, adding that authorities discovered it had gone missing last Wednesday.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates— The Islamic State militant group that has taken over large parts of Syria and Iraq and declared a self-styled caliphate poses one of the most significant threats to stability in the Middle East in years.

Sotloff, who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syrian in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley. Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, Sotloff was threatened in that video with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.

The departure of Weymouth, 48, ends eight decades of Graham family leadership of The Post, which her great-grandfather bought in 1933.

HOUSTON, Texas -- As Texas´ gas and oil industry continues to hum, some of the state´s old oil fields could start producing millions of barrels per day. This rings especially true for West Texas´ Permian Basin, which is expected to soon produce more than 2 million barrels of oil per day. Thanks to technological advances including fracking, some older oil fields in Texas are now booming again, according to the Wall Street Journal.

On Monday, as millions of American workers gathered with family and friends to celebrate and mark the end of summer, the nation´s union bosses were preparing to inject tens of millions of dollars from their members´ paychecks into the midterm elections in November. Unions have already spent $70 million to protect the Democrat majority in the Senate. Even this amount is likely to be dwarfed by a flood of money and manpower in the final weeks of the campaign. Union money, which is continually replenished through dues from members´ pay, is just the most public expression of union political power.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”
