Lie at Heart of “Immigration
Reform” Exposed

Daily Caller, by Mickey Kaus

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 7/15/2014 12:11:48 AM

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

I think we would be wise to look at the possibility of the resurrection of the North American Union push. We thought we killed it. Money is about to be spent on the Mexican high speed rail link from Texas to ports in Mexico. It would explain a lot regarding both parties´ ambivalence to the open border issue.

The RINOs learned nothing during the Reagan years......the DEMS pulled the same stunt once before and it was only 3 million at the time. Now it´s probably closer to 25 mil or more.......including terrorists and mafia, drug dealers, killers, rapist, etc, etc.

We´ve been there, done that! Now it is time to close the border and deport anyone who is illegal.....no welfare, medical, food stamps and no sending more IRS refunds to the same address that count up to 4600 or more. No social security assistance checks to P.O. Boxes near the border for 100´s or more checks going to one box. We need reform, alright, just NOT what the RINOs and DEMs want.

All governments south of the Rio Grand should be advised the the U.S. will deduct from foreign aid all sums necessary to house, feed, educate and provide medical assistance to their citizens illegally crossing our borders. How they fix the problem is up to them.

Reply #2 might well be onto something: perhaps it is about more than Hussein´s vindictiveness, or padding the dem voter roles, or providing cheap domestic labor for his real constituents.

I recall hearing a reference to this scenario from a guy in software. I disregarded it, having heard nothing about it in the media. That alone is reason to be curious.

Why does current immigration law need to be changed? I can remember back in the 50s when illegals were scared of INS and illegals were deported wherever they were found. The only reason I can think of is that the goobermint quit enforcing the law and the public is subject to lies after lies after lies to keep up the non-enforcement.

#2, the proposed high-speed rail line is only under discussion and there is a LOT of opposition. Even the rosiest predictions are for at "least a decade" before any passenger could take the high-speed ride.

It´s very unlikely to happen, at least not soon.

Right now, anybody can ride a train to the border, then take a Mexican train. I´ve done it several times.

Our "great benevolent" titans of industry need the flood of illegals for their workforce. Seems to me that these billionaires should cease any hypocritical philanthropic endeavors since they obviously are only interested in slave labor. They are not content with their billions, but have an insatiable appetite for more money. They could pay their American workers a decent wage but that would effect their bottom line and they can´t have that. They will cast aside any American worker in order to feed their greed. This is all about money. Follow it and you will find the source of their "compassion for illegals". Big business is greasing the pockets of their favorite easily bribed politicians which is the perfect pairing of corporate greed and political power. It is a devil of a match up for the American worker. It is not just the titans of industry either. This practice is rampant in business period especially construction crews. The working poor is being decimated.

#2- Of course it is about the formation of the North American Community. It has ALWAYS been about forming the North American Community. Google "Building a North American Community CFR" and click on the first result to download a pdf of the Council on Foreign Relations paper. They have never given up on that.

Think about it. When ISIS put into action its plan to build a new caliphate stretching from the Mediterranean to Iran what is the first thing they did? They destroyed the border between Syria and Iraq. The northern border between Syria and Iraq no longer exists. Likewise America´s southern border. It effectively no longer exists.

But that´s not all. A perfect storm slammed into the southern US border. The CFR types who want a North American Community, the Chamber of Commerce folks who want cheap, illegal, off-the-books labor, Democrats who want more lofo voters (and if they can´t speak English all the better because they can´t ask questions), the LaRaza types who want to repopulate the US with red people, the far left who are in favor of anything that would destroy America, the black racists who want to eliminate the white majority by flooding the county with brown people, and the amnesty-Republicans who are desperate to just hold on to what they have until they die and then "who cares?" In the face of it all, who is left to defend America? Who will?

You are right about the high speed passenger service. I should have concentrated on the freight service.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_of_L%C3%A1zaro_C%C3%A1rdenas

As you can see, container traffic into the US via the southern leg of transportation corridor envisioned in the NAU talks has been increasingly growing.

I´m not really suggesting anything yet but a lot of money has been spent on the project. Just something to keep an eye on.

Certainly one of the dirvers for NAFTA and improved transportation from Mexican ports to US cities is the stranglehold on the West Coast Shipping by the Longshoreman´s Union.

In addition to their economic agenda, which is to set themselves up as toll collectors for all trans-oceanic shipping, they have a political agendy. They have long been Communist influenced and led. Obama´s father was in Hawaii to try to organize the longshoremen to help China build its influence in the far east, and during the First Gulf War the unions tried to block shippment of military goods to the theater of conflict.

Glaringly absent from this article is any mention of Cecilia Munoz who is director of the White House Domestic Policy Council. Munoz is a card carrying member of La Raza. If the truth be known, she and Jarrett are the ones who created and continue to encourage this outrageous lawless invasion. I guess none of them (including that oh so brilliant "Constitutional" lawyer Obama) have read Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.

How long is that list now for impeachable offenses?

#7 We don’t need any reform just our laws enforced, they have completely stopped work place raids, they release convicted criminal illegal immigrants back in to the US population by the 10’s of 1000’s instead of deporting them etc…

In fact Obama has deported less than any other president, the Border Patrol is in virtual stand down; here is a picture of my local BP & Customs office on the border taken a few days ago that must have 75-100 BP & Custom vehicles sitting in the parking lot instead of out enforcing the border.

The so-called immigration activists are a big time special interest group, allied with the liberal Democrats, whose mission in life is to liberalize the immigration laws into ineffectiveness so that as many aliens as possible, mostly all poor and uneducated, can come or stay in the USA, become legalized, and ultimately register as new Democrat voters. This special interest group is not going away, and even if a massive liberal Democrat amnesty becomes law, those immigration activists will move on to oppose and sabotage all seemingly effective immigration law enforcement measures that are a part of that "comprehensive" immigration reform, to ensure that large numbers of new illegal aliens continue to come to the USA as "seed" for the next big amnesty that the liberal Democrats will begin pushing in a few years.

One of the notable things about the Obama administration isn’t simply that its key figures often make misleading claims, but that they do so in ways that can be so easily disproven. The latest effort is in the White House’s attempt to have us believe that the president, in his now infamous “jayvee” analogy, didn’t have ISIS in mind. Here’s an exchange between NBC’s Peter Alexander and White House press secretary Josh Earnest that took place on Monday: PETER ALEXANDER, NBC: Did the president underestimate ISIS when he referred to them in an interview only a couple months ago as

He declared to FNC’s Shannon Bream that the story of Lerner’s hard drive being damaged and destroyed and thus her e-mails were permanently lost has “all been a pack of malarkey” and “a big lie.” When it came to the major broadcast networks covering this huge story on their Monday evening newscasts,

Poverty Does Not Cause Terrorism

There is a pervasive belief that poverty is a key driver of terrorism. American foreign aid increased under George W. Bush, justified partly by security concerns. Bush said at the time, “We work for prosperity and opportunity because they’re right. It’s the right thing to do. We also work for prosperity and opportunity because they help defeat terror.” Similarly Bill Clinton has stated “we have to create more opportunity for those left behind by progress, thus reducing the pool of potential terrorists.” This framing of poverty and development as national security issues continued with the Obama administration.

Knee offender: United flight diverted

A United Airlines flight from Newark to Denver was diverted because of two passengers who were fighting over a little bit of legroom. A woman and a man — both seated in the “Economy Plus” section of the aircraft, which already comes with extra legroom — were at each other’s throats because the man attached a “knee defender” device to his seat, preventing the woman in front from reclining, according the Associated Press. The $22 device locks onto the tray table on the back of the seat, making it impossible for the person in front to recline during the flight.

WASHINGTON — The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria cannot be defeated unless the United States or its partners take on the Sunni militants in Syria, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Thursday. “This is an organization that has an apocalyptic end-of-days strategic vision that will eventually have to be defeated,” said the chairman, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, in his most expansive public remarks on the crisis since American airstrikes began in Iraq. “Can they be defeated without addressing that part of the organization that resides in Syria? The answer is no.” But General Dempsey and Defense Secretary Chuck

"ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen.

Two weeks ago, President Obama announced air strikes in northern Iraq against ISIS. The mission, as Obama explained it at the time, was designed to pursue two very limited objectives: “targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water and facing almost certain death.” Two days ago, when Obama spoke in the aftermath of the brutal beheading of the photojournalist James Foley, his verbal tone was visibly angrier. American officials started speaking of their mission in very different terms. John Kerry wrote that

Will the videotaped execution of James Foley shock America out of our dangerous flirtation with isolationism? The gruesome beheading of the 40-year-old photojournalist should scream out a warning to any who still doubt: This isn’t just some war out there. It’s about us. Some see Foley as a noble but careless man, too courageous for his own good, who unwisely decided to go freelance in faraway war zones, armed with nothing more than a camera and adrenaline. Kidnapped once, in Libya, Foley still went back to war journalism in Syria — where he was abducted again in November 2012 by forces close to

Ahmad Jebril, 43, who has gained an international following among ISIS fighters and sympathizers, is on probation after serving 6½ years in prison. After being released in 2012, he has used social media to become what experts say is the most popular religious leader for Islamists from the West fighting for ISIS, also known as ISIL or the Islamic State.

Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

On NBC’s Meet the Press, guest Gwen Ifill of PBS called the unrest and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Mo., the beginning of a “new civil-rights movement.” “There’s a new civil-rights movement which has sprung up,” Ifill said. “These young people in the streets, these young people who created a social-media movement around Michael Brown, they’re not saying pass a law, they’re saying enforce the current ones.” But some people have called for new laws, and later in the program, Reverend Al Sharpton said, “Our demonstrations must lead to legislation.” Sharpton went on to say that, “We must turn this moment into

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday. May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion´s convention-goers. The 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House´s policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry them out. A Virginia legionnaire who served in the U.S. Marine Corps told MailOnline that ´a small group of Obama´s admirers – and there are some here – sat near the front and tried to generate applause

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
