White House pursuing plan
to expand immigrant rights

Los Angeles Times, by Christi Parsons*

Original Article

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.

Maybe it is Numbers USA.
The question is WHO speaks for American Citizens? Not the traitors in Washington!

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.

If you missed Mark Sanford´s tortured, meandering Facebook post about his various relationship and family troubles last weekend, I´m afraid you´re out of luck. The Republican Party´s Lord Byron apparently thought better of it and decided to take the post down. Maybe Sanford´s sons impressed upon him that he had become the single most embarrassing parent in America. Or maybe the South Carolina congressman suddenly realized that he wasn´t actually 15 and was under no compulsion to vent his conflicted emotions on social media. (If I knew how to do it, I´d insert a little "unamused" emoji face here.) Or perhaps Sanford

"My God is not finished with me yet," he tells the congregation. The man speaking is Edwin W. Edwards -- ex-four-term Louisiana governor, ex-four-term congressman and ex-con. "I may be old and rancid butter, but I´m on your side of the bread," he proclaims from the altar. Unrepentant and unapologetic, Edwards is in church not looking for forgiveness.

EDINBURGH, Scotland - Scottish voters have resoundingly rejected independence, deciding to remain part of the United Kingdom after a historic referendum that shook the country to its core. The decision prevented the rupture of a 307-year union with England, bringing a huge sigh of relief to Britain´s political establishment, including Prime Minister David Cameron, who faced calls for his resignation if Scotland had broken away. The vote on Thursday - 55 percent against independence to 45 percent in favor - saw an unprecedented turnout of just under 85 percent. A majority of voters did not embrace Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond´s impassioned plea

If there is one thing that the Administration and Democratic candidates have in their favor going into the mid-term elections, it is that election day is November 4, and Obamacare’s second open enrollment begins on November 15. If the dates were flipped, there is little doubt that voters affected by Obamacare would wreak havoc on the politicians who imposed the Rube Goldberg contraption of exchanges on them. Despite having just tossed another $60 million out the window “to help consumers navigate their health care coverage options in the Health Insurance Marketplace,” the Administration will likely face an even more bemused and

One of the first major scandals of the Obama administration may not get resolved until after Barack Obama leaves office — at least, if Eric Holder has anything to say about it. Politico’s Josh Gerstein reported last night on an effort by the Attorney General to keep the issue of executive privilege and Congressional subpoenas from resolution, even after a federal judge ordered Holder and the Department of Justice to submit documents to the House Oversight Committee. If successful, it might push the appeals process so far out that Obama will leave office before Congress can exercise its oversight responsibilities

CAMP ZIOUANI, Golan Heights -- For four decades, a multinational United Nations mission has quietly monitored the sleepy Golan Heights - providing a symbol of stability between bitter enemies as it enforced a truce between Israel and Syria. But as Syria has plunged into civil war and the peacekeepers themselves have become targets of al-Qaida-linked rebels, the U.N. observer force has begun to fall apart, leaving its future - and the prospects for ever establishing peace in this rugged area of the Middle East - in doubt. Since Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria in the 1967 Mideast war, a withdrawal

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Homeland Security Committee and House Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of the Border and Maritime Subcommittee.(snip) The Congresswoman released the following statement: “The bloodshed at the hands of ISIL has been enormous. Religious minorities have been persecuted. American and British citizens have been beheaded. There is a further threat of other innocent human beings to be beheaded or killed in some way. It is also clear that a war including the United States is not the answer. I abhor the violence of war when diplomacy can be used.
