Hispanics Split Over
Obama’s Border Meltdown

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/5/2014 5:14:08 AM

Polls show that American Latinos have deeply ambivalent views about the 100,000-plus illegal immigrants flooding across the American border with Mexico. Lopsided majorities say they want tighter border security and lopsided majorities say they illegal immigrants to be accepted. “There are Hispanics who are conflicted, because they worry about the quality of life, immigrants coming into their neighborhoods [and] about their jobs,” said Ruben Navarette, a native Californian and a nationally syndicated columnist. “When the [political] water is calm and immigration is not a hot issue, you get Hispanics engaged in discussions saying ‘I worry about border security and jobs,’

It´s all well and good to say what Democrats have to do to boost their poll numbers with Latinos, but it´s more important what Republicans can do to woo these voters.

It´s a rock and a hard place for the GOP: If they paint themselves as being against illegal immigration they will be seen by Latinos and exploited by this White House and the media as being against Latinos. Those are the optics regardless of what the truth is.

So what does the GOP do? They can honestly make an issue out of illegals flooding our borders by talking to the Hispanic community and telling them to come here legally, bring their families, and they will be welcomed.

But they cannot come here and expect OUR free dollars for doing nothing. Hispanics should be willing to work for their welfare and pay taxes.

Write up a "Free Entry For Your Taxes" bill or something similar; let them, and the Hispanics already here who do pay taxes, that anyone who contributes to the system has the full backing of the GOP.

Now that leaves the other generational-welfare groups who should be made to do the same thing: With the exception of people, who, through no fault of their own, cannot work, cut off welfare after six months unless they contribute something -- taxes, working without pay for others, paving roads, learning a trade, building Churches, etc.

In the past, that whole scenario would have been realistic. Today, all it will get is laughter and derision.

What happened to our beloved country? Liberalism happened. Look at Detroit: That will be America only a few years from now unless this madness is stopped.

It is more than hispanics that are reactive. This whole open borders policy is chaotic, destructive and reactive. Everybody is reactive and Obama wins out of the chaos then everybody become poorer. Obama and more chaos is the only winner. Is there an open borders policy in any of the countries that these people are coming from? Never! They are all dirt poor as the USA will be very soon. We need sensible non reactive policies both in America and in all the poor countries to bring prosperity to all. No need to leave home and take your chances on the way to get to America to have a future. Think don´t react!

I have lived among Latinos for most of my life. In general, they are hard-working, family-oriented, decent people whose values are much more aligned with conservatives than with liberals.

It is absurd that the Republican Party is so dumb that its leaders can´t figure that out or come up with a plan and laws that will define immigration in a way that actually attracts Latinos to the party.

#1 is on the right track. Streamline the paperwork and conditions for entry, including work visas. Require proper documentation and evidence of payment of taxes as a condition for receiving of benefits. And encourage entrepreneurial development (something most Latinos desire and which the Republican Party should be championing).

One of the biggest impediments for the above approach is the big business (and especially agri-business) crony capitalists in the Republican Party who want cheap labor and who also want to hire them on a cash only basis, so THEY don´t have to pay employment taxes for their labor. There is the crux of the problem and the root cause of the schizophrenia in the Chamber of Commerce cabal of the Republican establishment. THEY want straight amnesty and open borders just as much as the Democrats.

Fix that, Tea Party, and we´ll finally have the start of the solution.

When push-comes-to-shove the wagons get circled. Their allegiance for far too many lies not with the US.

This is what happens when our immigration focus shifts from our natural heritage of Europe and the productive to the teeming masses and messes from elsewhere who refuse to become Americsns. A pox on illegals and their supporters.

Cloward/Piven. Nothing more, nothing less. Obama and his progressive cabal are purposefully destroying this country enabled by a bunch of cowardly politicians who are unable to articulate an argument against this lawlessness out of fear of being labeled anti-Hispanic. Pray tell me, when will their pro-American taxpayer mindset kick in?

Encouraging these children to come here, and we know Obama had to facilitate the logistics of it all with Mexican authorities, is an unconscionable act for a President. Obama is using children as human shields to promote his political policies. Hispanics take note. Look around at the black community. You will see your future. Obama and his cronies want votes and power. They are not concerned with your dreams of a better life. Look at Detroit. It is an example of the complete failure of their progressive ideology and if you throw your lot in with them, it will be your future.

Politics is not a logical process that creates the best solution out of compromise and principle. Immigration is a perfect illustration. What is horrifying is that the entire Federal government is complicit in a surrender of national sovereignty. Those charged with enforcing our sovereignty and maintain our borders and national security are derelict, and no problem, even if Mexican military helicopters open fire or gangs like MS13 take our streets and corrupt our cops. It´s not a matter of paperwork, or waiting periods, or any of that nonsense. It´s a bi-partisan disaster that is not waiting to happen...it´s happening...not just along the border.

The biggest reason for this chaos right now, is because the Dems need Dem voters!

This mass push is to make that happen!

The American LoFo´s are slowly waking up, and the Dems need to replace them.

Expect more from the Dems on giving these people complete Amnesty, and VOTING RIGHTS before the 2014 and 2016 elections!

If the Hispanics mentioned are of foreign origin themselves. Their primary allegiance lies with illegal aliens coming from their specific homelands over a general allegiance to the USA, and it´s, to them, complex and obscure immigration laws. As they have been told from the get-go by the very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups that the immigration laws discriminate against foreigners.

It does not matter to them that the immigration laws are legitimately designed to legally discriminate against foreigners in a manner that Congress, decides what classes of foreigners can enter and stay in the USA in accordance with the best interests of the USA; instead of foreigners themselves aided by special interest groups and foreign governments deciding that the USA should simply accept all comers, and eventually reward them all with amnesty. As illustrated by Omama´s "let´s give everybody who wants to come here a shot" non-enforcement of the immigration laws policies, that essentially allow an unlimited number of poor and uneducated illegal aliens to stay in the USA. Clearly Obama could care less that the vast majority of those people will have to be highly subsidized through all sorts of social welfare programs indefinitely.

Obama is pushing a massive liberal Democrat amnesty as a remedy to fix the nation´s immigration problems under the guise of "Comprehensive Immigration Reform". A bill that is really one big stink bomb that will not stop the flow of illegal aliens coming across the borderline, but in essence would legalize that flow.

somewhat glossed over is the reality of tribalism. It´s real, even if it´s not politically correct to admit to it.
And it´s not restricted to that over-broad class of "Hispanics". I´ve seen Greeks do likewise. Italians, another over-broad classification, forgive the awful behavior of a fellow Calabrian, or Neapolitan. Want to talk about how the Irish will overlook ghastly behavior from someone else from County Cork?
Mexicans from Oaxaca might well give a pass to someone else from there, will less forgiving of someone from Sinaloa. And much less for a Guatemalan, especially an Indio.
So take some of these polls with a room sized grain of salt.
What is conspicuously lacking is a respect for blind justice and rule of law. In part, that is a reflection of the corrupt cultures they came from. But it´s also an indictment of the current "correct" attitudes that discourage true assimilation. I know 2nd and 3rd generation types, primarily Mexican, who scorn the use of English and still do not consider themselves to be Americans. And support reconquista to this day. And we are allowing more like them to enter. This is what Jebbie calls acts of love. It´s nothing of the kind.

I will never associate with a political party that participates in tribal identity politics. The idea of pandering to Mexicans to get their vote is repulsive to American values. If Mexicans won´t vote GOP because the GOP believes in borders, why in the name of heaven would you want their votes? Here´s the real problem the GOP has with Mexicans - too may european-americans. They will never vote for the "white male" party no matter how much you pander to them.

If you are a Hispanic or of some Hispanic origin, whether you are an immigrant or not, your days of leisure and getting along with your fellow gringos at work are coming to an end. People are starting to really get fed up with this stuff. Those are the people that should be the loudest protesters of the all.
Similar to the middle/working class two parent black families that must be extremely disappointed in their fellow low life brethren.

Hopefully, legal Hispanics will see this latest invasion the way the Cubans saw the Mariels. They must think why they came to this country in the first place. I doubt they want to turn it into the country they left.

I just wish the House leadership would stop worrying about the next election, do what the Constitution provides, and let the chips fall. They need to consider how they will win without our votes. That´s what they should do, not what they probably will do.

I too have lived among and with Mexicans most of my life. Most people do when you are raised in Texas. The Mexicans who are 50 yrs old plus are different than many of those 30 and younger. The attitude of the older folks is indeed hard work, traditional values and very little of this very strong allegiance to Mexico stuff. They will tell you that America is THEIR country. Their children have been indoctrinated in the importance of their Mexican heritage. They have an attitude toward whites just like blacks with a chip on their shoulder do. They innately feel America owes them, unwed pregnancies are rampant in their community. The immigration spigot, even legal, from the south should be slowed to a trickle. I do not accept that we cannot do with importing all manner of ill-educated Mexicans who ARE going to be welfare-dependent for most of their needs for years and years.

Liberal means freedom, progressive means just that
These anti liberal RETROgressives, are destroying, tying to destroy this country and cling them only nice sounding names is like giving them a pass, protecting them.

Wake up! It´s grownup time ! They´re all behaving like beautifully Communist Party Line indoctrinated propagandists, with every move they make against us.

These are not fuzzy liberals, these are all REDS.
Mexicans did not move here to live in another Mexican style
government of corruption. True, we need some outspoken

Sen. Marco Rubio argued that the nation´s immigration laws need to be overhauled and said that Hillary Clinton would be a flawed candidate for president. "I just think she´s a 20th century candidate," he said. "I think she does not offer an agenda for moving America forward in the 21st century, at least not up till now." The Florida Republican made his comments in the second half of a two-part interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep on Tuesday. Rubio also said he will make a decision about whether to run for president himself sometime within the next few months.

With the D.C. Circuit Court’s decision today that Obamacare, as written, doesn’t authorize the provision of subsidies on federal health-care exchanges — it just does so for those established by states — residents of 36 states may stop receiving insurance subsidies under the law. President Obama could well ignore the decision, which he asserts is perfectly legal, but he’ll also certainly appeal it — either to an en banc hearing of the D.C. Circuit Court (more judges than the three that just heard it) or to the Supreme Court. If the president chooses to ignore the ruling, we can bet

Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released a new poll of the North Carolina Senate race, featuring Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan squaring off against Republican state house speaker Thom Tillis, with ostensibly good news for the Democrat: She’s up seven points and expanded on her lead. Their headline: “Hagan continues to grow lead.” But dig a little deeper and the story is mixed for the Democrat. Hagan’s seven-point lead is due largely to the libertarian candidate, who is polling 8 percent. In no cycle since 1986 has the libertarian pulled more than 3.4 percent in North Carolina; on

She’s offered to “add an exclamation point.” She’s even signed a letter calling on Hillary Clinton, who leads polls of Democrats by up to 50 points, to run for president. And yet there they were on Friday morning, the people who wanted Warren to reconsider.

When President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer break next month on Martha´s Vineyard, Mass., he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home. Obama has been criticized for taking costly and lengthy vacations, especially compared to the short trips most Americans take. The U.S. Travel Association told Secrets that the average American vacation lasts just 3.7 days. But his 141 days out of Washington are far less than the 378 former President George W. Bush took in

That this is true is obvious to all except Putin’s propaganda machine that is frantically churning out absurd conspiracy theories, while Putin lies low and limits himself to vague claims of Ukrainian guilt. Feinstein may not understand that Putin’s “manning up” could spell the end of his regime and he can’t admit the truth.

A wealthy venture capitalist and major Obama donor is fighting tooth-and-nail to prevent others from accessing his private Northern California beach, according to Bloomberg News. Vinod Khosla’s support for Obama has paid off in the form of millions in taxpayer subsidies for green energy companies in which he has invested. A prominent environmentalist, Khosla nevertheless cherishes his control over a private beach alongside his 56-acre property near San Francisco—which he bought for $32.5 million—Bloomberg reported on Monday. Khosla, who started his own venture capital firm a decade ago, is fighting a lawsuit brought in state court by the nonprofit Surfrider Foundation, which describes

If you think President Obama’s administration has unraveled, the denouement could be just beginning. Its real consequence would come when congressional Democrats, who have remained extremely loyal to the president, begin to split from him. If they do — and November election losses could drive that — America could see a presidency come apart. The latest nationwide Quinnipiac poll shows Mr. Obama’s deepening trouble. A plurality of respondents (45 percent) said the country would have been better off if Mitt Romney had won in 2012, and Mr. Obama rated first (33 percent) in voting for America’s worst post-World War II

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

Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important.

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
