White House pursuing plan
to expand immigrant rights

Los Angeles Times, by Christi Parsons*

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/26/2014 5:23:56 AM

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

These are not immigrants they are illegal aliens , there is a big difference.

The White House has no authority to expand or give new rights to illegal aliens. Under the US Constitution only Congress has the authority to provide the uniform rules for immigration and naturalization.

I wonder if Dear Leader Barack Hussein ever imagined that the Republicans would so easily allow him to act as a lawless king with such utter impunity? Surely Dear Leader must have expected at least a little resistance?

Apparently, the transformation of America is to a third world country. Barry grew up in Indonesia, maybe that is his ideal country.

Journalists are very ignorant people.

Free clue Christi: obama is not grappling with immigrants, he is attempting to destroy the USA by allowing any and all illegal aliens into our Nation.

...some White House officials appeared to relish the prospect that the GOP might overreach in its response..."I would not discount the possibility" that Republicans would seek to impeach Obama over his next immigration moves, he said,...

Here it is again, the dare to impeach, knowing full well that impeachment will accomplish nothing except to say, "nyah nyah, we impeached you." So what? So Obama can say, "See? They impeached the black guy." Way to energize Democrat voters.

Impeachment will not remove him from office nor stop him from continuing his EO´s. Knowing that, what is the point of impeachment if it his emboldens usually lethargic Democrat voters?

Obama NEEDS impeachment in order to energize his rapidly dwindling base. He´s lost some Jews, some Hispanics, some blacks even. Nothing would suit him more than to play the race card and the victim card at once.

It´s bad enough all these illegals will be given voting rights before the next election (wait and see if it doesn´t happen). We don´t need an expanded sympathy vote that will result from a futile impeachment effort.

Zippy seems to be unaware of the anger out here in flyover country about this illegal invasion. Or maybe he just doesn´t care. But I think the backlash would trash the demonrats even worse in November.

I feel so helpless about this. We need to take to the streets in massive protests, but we have no organization. We have no leader. Instead we sit here and complain. I´m furious at the Demos, but I´m mad as hell at people who claim to love this country and then do nothing but complain. We need to protest, but HOW do we organize this on a national scale?

What we need is a symbol of resistance to Obama´s lawlessness. It would be an encouragement to those of us who are adamantly opposed to this invasion. We need to see we are not alone in this struggle. Face it, the average American is not and has never been a protester and we are unsure of what to do. A massive show of solidarity would certainly send a message. Most Americans can´t pack up and travel to Washington or even to our state capitols because we work and have responsibilities, but a symbol on our cars and houses would bring recognition that we are united. The Gadsden flag would work. It certainly has the correct motto, Don´t Tread On Me.

#7 Exactly! Without a unifying strong leadership all we can do is stand out on a street corner with hand painted cardboards looking like the Westboro goons. Where oh where is our one voice? The Tea Party started out well and good, but seems to have crumbled and faded away under the slightest pressure. It failed because it has no leader.

Obama will do this only if he is sure the GOP will, once again, let him get away with it.

And if the GOP does, and it most surely will, let him get away with shredding another page of the Constitution, the real constitutional crisis will be, not that Obama is now king not president, but that the nation will be faced, for I believe the first time, with the Soviet-like situation of not having an opposition party - at all.

When seeing the photo of the lady showing the birth certificate for her daughter, I couldn´t help but wonder how many people have crossed our border using MY birth certificate, my husband´s, my two sons´, my two live daughters´, my daughter´s in Heaven, my Mama´s, my grandmother´s, grandfather´s, uncle´s and aunt´s - all in Heaven now.

They were all stolen by four Mexican men working for a company hired by our insurance company to make repairs to our hardwood floors after a water pipe burst. I might not have found them missing for years except for the fact that we needed ours for a quickly planned cruise a month after the work was finished.

#10 - and why did the Tea Party fade? Because Obama and his gestapo - the IRS and compliant FBI and a few others - all pitched in to come crashing down with the weight of the out of control monster that figures they own us, not the other way around.

And for the most part they succeeded. The MSM and the politicians were in full cry to turn the Tea Party into a laughing stock but they took us seriously enough to shred the constitution to defeat us.

We´re not really gone, just quieter. Maybe this immigration thing will rouse the sleeping giant but we´ll be faced with name calling (sticks and stones) - racist, nativist, xenophobe, whatever. But we have the truth, logic and the Constitution. If we are half as strong as they are we ought to win - and if we don´t then we all lose.

I agree with many posters here.....what can we do to stop the processes that are working against us at every turn. The only thing I can think of is what they do in other countries....we must start protesting in mass. I know we cannot all go to Washington, but we can go to our Senator´s and Rep´s local offices and protest and it will be noticed if it is done all over each state. We are running our of time....we cannot just stand around any longer and complain...we have to make a move. We have many ways to communicate to make this known in our area. If we don´t stand up they will shut us up without our permission. Look at Russia, Crimea, the Ukraine.....is this what we want?

Au contraire, #10. The TEA Party is as strong as ever BECAUSE we have no leadership except for a common collective mindset that this is our country and we will do what is necessary to keep it. Obama is poking and prodding but he has done no real damage yet. When the good citizens of this country have to deal with obama´s federal brownshirts and MS-13 members in areas where the run control crowd has failed to turn them into sheep, guess who will be armed and dangerous?

Most people are unsure how to deal with the obama regime because it´s a unique problem to America. I guarantee you that when the time comes, TEA Party people will be coming out of the woodwork and they will be damn mad. I wouldn´t want to be in the shoes of the obama supporters who are left because retaliation has been building up for almost six years.

people, if you ever expected the Republicans to oppose this or most other efforts of the Dhimmicraps, you were deluded. The sad fact is that, particularly at the national but also increasingly at the state capitol level, their beliefs and governing philosophies are largely identical.
Again, look up and read Angelo Codevilla´s excellent piece on "The American Ruling Class" from several years ago. It´s very much on point.
These people, whether it´s Obama or Schumer or Grijalva, or Rubio or McCain or Jeb Bush or Romney or Ryan, NONE of them really give a flip about you, or the law, or the country. They just don´t care. And the judges and bureaucrats, insulated from any sort of accountability at all, REALLY don´t care, and they´ve become the de facto rulers of this former constitutional republic anyway.
By all rights, Obama should have been impeached and removed in 2009. But by all rights, he had no business taking office, being himself an illegal alien, not a natural born citizen.
You´re crazy if you think that any meaningful resistance will be raised. And don´t blame Boehner. Those who voted him into the Speakership knew darn well what they were getting, He´s just the face of that surrender, living as he does in a "safe" district and therefor a convenient lightning rod for citizen discontent.

Obama can´t create laws. All he can do is interpret them. The next Republican in the White House will interpret them as well. Obama´s edicts can all be reversed. That is unless he buys off the entire electorate and wins in November and 2016.

Governor Otter of Idaho sure isn´t afraid to stand and deliver a NO to Obe.
I agree the TEA Party should regroup and vet their candidates with a tougher
rule book .
Far too many Tea candidates have lost elections because of stupid social gaffs that leave them open to be called nut case radicals.
Before the primary in Idaho produced some entitled to that label Otter was down in reelect points.
He will probably win another term since the Dem choice matches the nut case pattern too.

By now, you’re probably familiar with the fact that some people in the US refuse to vaccinate their children. You are probably also familiar with the raging debate over vaccine refusal and whether parents should suck it up and vaccinate their kids for the sake of herd immunity, the common good, and society. But a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter by Gary Baum really cuts to the heart of the vaccine refusal issue: It’s a class and privilege problem. The people refusing to vaccinate are primarily wealthy, coming from backgrounds of privilege, following in the footsteps of their wealthy and

The federal government is giving an ObamaCare insurance navigator Seedco, which has a reported history of fraud, $1.4 million to operate in Tennessee this fiscal year. Last year, Seedco received $1.2 million for the same services in Tennessee. As reported, the federal government sued Seedco on the grounds it faked at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with New York City. Seedco, according to National Review, had to settle that lawsuit.

Classes were canceled at Golden and Jefferson high schools after 81 percent and 70 percent of teachers called in sick respectively. Some students who had the day off hit the street to protest against a proposal from the board´s new conservative majority to review the history course to make sure it promotes patriotism and doesn´t condone social disorder.

HONG KONG -- Hong Kong´s leader said China won´t back down from its decision to limit voting reforms in the Asian financial hub as pro-democracy protesters set a Wednesday deadline for a response from the government to meet their demands. The unequivocal statement from Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying on Tuesday dashed hopes that the standoff between demonstrators and authorities could be resolved quickly through negotiations. It does not come as a surprise given that showing a willingness to talk would have made the Chinese leadership appear weak, which could embolden dissidents, critics and separatists on the mainland.

BERLIN—There are many subjects of German soul-searching. Among them: Is the country saving too much water? People here are known to flush toilets with old bath water and to take turns bathing in the same tub without refilling it. New German toilets typically use about two gallons of water for a full flush and less than one for water-saving. Conserving water is an expression of personal virtue and social responsibility. But as scholars, utility managers, and municipal officials point out, there is a dark side to the impulse. Sewage stagnates in too-large canals and noxious gas is corroding cement.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

The man who jumped the White House fence this month and sprinted through the front door made it much farther into the building than previously known, overpowering one Secret Service officer and running through much of the main floor, according to three people familiar with the incident. An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The officer posted inside the front door appeared to

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

The U.S. had expected the Iraqi army to do more against extremists, president says in acknowledgment of intelligence shortcomings. President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes. The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House
