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.

In his fourth-floor lab at Harvard University, Michael Desai has created hundreds of identical worlds in order to watch evolution at work. Each of his meticulously controlled environments is home to a separate strain of baker’s yeast. Every 12 hours, Desai’s robot assistants pluck out the fastest-growing yeast in each world — selecting the fittest to live on — and discard the rest. Desai then monitors the strains as they evolve over the course of 500 generations. His experiment, which other scientists say is unprecedented in scale, seeks to gain insight into a question that has long bedeviled biologists: If

MIAMI -- Hillary Clinton covered all her bases in Miami on Thursday: She padded her wallet with a paid speech, pitched her memoir with a book signing and fundraised for a Democrat in a critical presidential state. This is becoming a familiar formula for Clinton. In October alone Clinton has four trips planned -- to Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco -- where she will combine a paid speech with either a book event or a fundraiser for a Democratic candidate or group. The strategy is part logistical, part practical for Clinton. But as she considers a presidential run in 2016,

HONG KONG -- Friction between pro-democracy protesters and opponents of their weeklong occupation of major Hong Kong streets persisted Saturday as police denied any connection to criminal gangs suspected of inciting attacks on largely peaceful demonstrators. Police arrested 19 people during a night of running brawls in which at least 12 people and six officers were injured.

I have written frequently that I estimate that one-third of the mortgage foreclosures in the 2007-10 period were of Hispanic homebuyers. Very many had been granted mortgages, despite bad or dubious credit, by lenders who then fobbed them off on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac or other mortgage securitizers, in the meantime gaining brownie points with regulators for lending to “minorities.” Evidence supporting this comes, inadvertently, from an Urban Institute report spotlighted by the industrious and provocative blogger Steve Sailer. You can see that there was a huge increase in the number of mortgages granted to Hispanics in the years

CLEVELAND - It is shocking that just three percent of rapists in America ever serve time. CBS News reported five years ago that investigators often ignore DNA evidence collected from victims in what is known as a "rape kit." Thousands of these rape kits have gathered dust for years.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events.

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

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

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
