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.

It all comes down to this: 11 years later, the front door was unlocked. When Oscar Gonzalez jumped the White House fence late last month, he should have been just another statistic. A mentally ill man who was doing what a handful of others do every year, get onto the White House lawn and find themselves tackled by guards or brought down by dogs or fired upon by snipers. But this time it was different. The President and first family weren´t home, the snipers didn´t shoot. It´s still not clear where the dogs were or why there was no Uniformed Division officer

On the eve of the 25th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, the Washington Post noted an amusing coincidence: “Almost a quarter century ago, Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson served as Republican counsel on the Senate Watergate committee. Now he chairs the Senate panel investigating the current White House fund-raising scandal.” The timing was interesting because, as the Post explained, the “controversy came to light last year because of the reforms of Watergate, including requirements that campaigns and political parties regularly submit lists of their contributors to the Federal Election Commission.” The Post went on to list seven major reforms that stemmed either

World War II veteran Andrew Haines decided years ago that he wanted a Norse-inspired funeral upon his death, and the U.S. Coast Guard obliged. Mr. Haines, who emigrated from Norway in 1927, scaled down blueprints for a 100-foot ship to a few feet in the years before he died. It was then up to the Coast Guard to decide whether it would ignite the boat and send-off Mr. Haines‘ cremated remains in accordance with his wishes. “Oh, I was thrilled,” Mr. Haines’ son Andy told Navy Times on Thursday. “I was thrilled when the Coast Guard called and told me

Following in the footsteps of Robert Gates, his Obama administration predecessor at the Pentagon, former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has criticized the president’s handling of a key battleground in the war against Islamic terrorism. Gates’ criticism centered around Afghanistan. Panetta’s focuses on Iraq. In Panetta’s forthcoming memoir “Worthy Fights,” which Time Magazine has excerpted, Panetta argues that Iraqi leaders privately wanted U.S. forces to stay behind after the formal 2011 withdrawal; that the U.S. had “leverage” to strike a deal; and that the Defense and State departments attempted to do so. However, says Panetta, “the President’s team at the White

Are significant chunks of the mainstream media in despair over Barack Obama? This past week, Obama used 60 Minutes to attempt to shift blame for the failure to anticipate the rise of ISIS, endured a cover-up of White House security disasters by the Secret Service, and saw a government-agency report that he had skipped nearly 60 percent of his intelligence briefings. The reaction from some longtime Obama defenders was swift and harsh. “President Obama this week committed professional suicide,” wrote former CNN host Piers Morgan, now an editor-at-large for Britain’s Daily Mail. He called Obama’s throwing of the intelligence community under the

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is understandably miffed with President Obama´s criticisms of settlements (through WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest) considering he had met with him only hours without bringing up the subject. So why did Obama behave in this manner? I suspect he did this because Netanyahu publicly admonished Obama not enter into nuclear deal with Iran that leaves the Mullahs on the "threshold" of being able to develop nuclear weapons. This is, after all, a matter of Israel´s very survival. But Obama doesn´t take criticism well and wanted to get back at him. So once Bibi was safely

It is no secret that the Obama administration has demonstrated questionable commitment to the rule of law. It has undermined the separation of powers by disregarding congressional enactments while pushing executive power far beyond its constitutional boundaries. It has further undermined limited government by disregarding federalism and pushing Washington-knows-best legislation that far exceeds anything the Founding Fathers could have conceived. In recent years, a politicized Justice Department has refused to defend bipartisan legislation in court and resisted congressional oversight. Its practice of entering into extremely generous “settlements” with environmental and other liberal groups raises questions about whether the administration is welcoming

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
