President may legalize
5M immigrant parents

Boston Herald, by Jack Encarnacao

Original Article

Posted By:geo11, 7/27/2014 5:46:51 AM

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

Comments:
This will be Obama´s crowning achievement. The fundamental change of America.

Sen Cruz and Rep Sessions have begged Americans to burn up the DC phone lines, their representatives Facebook and Twitter and protest this. THere is also a bill coming up for a vote before the August recess (in the next few days). We need to demand that the government enforce the immigration laws. Act like your country depends on you.

I am beyond enraged by the actions of this Community Organizer In Chief! The fact that the Democrats will go along with this power grab is evidence that they care nothing for the sovereignty of this country or the separation of powers that has been the bedrock of this nation. Democrats only pledge allegieance to their political party. The silence of the Republican Party as Obama continues his lawless in your face actions is even more disturbing. Obama is issuing decrees like some Middle Eastern potentate. Folks, this country is under attack by its own President and if he is not reigned it, he will continue to shred the Constitution.

Obama is on a mission to fundamentally transform this country and I believe he knows that no one will stop him. I weep for my country. The powers that be were put into office to protect and defend the Constitution, however evidently, preserving their political power is more important to them. If they were honest, they would tell the American people that Obama´s actions are illegal and this action will harm this country financially. It erases there rule of law and will forever change the culture. We cannot survive the Balkinization that Obama and the democrats want. If Obama does this and I believe he will, it will be the death knoll for the USA. He knows it and it has been his ultimate goal from day one. God help us.

That´s why he´s threatening to do this, #1. He wants the talk of impeachment to rile up his base for November. What he doesn´t see from inside his bubble is that a large chunk of his base doesn´t want the illegals here. They are sucking up the entitlements which belong to zippy´s "gimmedats".

In the boston globe´s coverage of the rally, they reported- Bay Staters are split on the issue, with 50 percent in favor of the plan and 43 percent opposed — a difference within the margin of error.
The thousands there had to be a good cross section of MA voters. No way is it within the margin of error. Guess they were busy covering Hilary´s visit.

That and Communist Organizing tactics of creating crisis after crisis, fomenting confusion and chaos. Simply put, divide and conquer!

I was always under the impression that the president did not have the authority to legalize or de-legalize anything. I guess that is all pre-Obama and pre-democrats turning into communist, lying tyrants. And after people say it is a waste of time to enforce our laws and our constitution, to just wait for the next election of establishment republicans and communist democrats.

am i the only one that remembers what happened?

in 2009, when Obamacare was first proposed, even the DEMOCRATS weren´t on board..
they were aghast at it, knowing they would not be re-elected if this went through..
BO dragged them into a PRIVATE meeting to assure them that it would be a good thing..
they all came out afterwards LOCK STEP and voted for it..
AFTER the 2010 election was in hand..

no details of Obamacare were, at that time, visible..
s would be a non-issue for the 2010 election and a MILD issue for 2012..

he AND THEY knew all hell would break loose after that and THEY would be thrown out of office in the 2014 election WHEN OBAMACARE STARTED TO TAKE EFFECT - FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA.. we are seeing this start to happen..

the MAJOR thrust of the 2009 meeting was that HE WOULD PROVIDE 10-20 MILLION NEW VOTERS TO KEEP HIS CONGRESS IN PLACE BY THE 2014 ELECTION..

Other than Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz, where´s the vehement opposition to all this? Every comment I read any where in the ´net would suggest normal Americans are overwhelmingly (and stringently) opposed to anything like this. Where is the GOP opposition? This is going to be very difficult toothpaste to get back into the tube.

Impeachment is the WMD designed to take all discussions of Democrat misdeeds off the table at the time of the election. Don´t fall into that trap. After November ´14 it might not be necessary as a Republican House/Senate with an increased Tea Party content can do more to nullify him. Then we need him there to take the blame all the way to 2016.

Face it, we´ve had a silent coup take place before our very eyes. I´m sure many Germans in 1934 knew that when Hitler, who had already been elected Chancellor, was also ELECTED President that in only 8 years time their beautiful country would not be the same. I, and many others, felt that way about Obama in 2008. I´m right and so were those Germans. The USA will never be the same.

Everyone keeps saying we may not survive until 2016. Who said he´s leaving? He´ll just make an Executive Order saying he can stay. Who´s going to stop him?

A writ of mandamus from the Supreme Court to Homeland Security could stop all this nonsense in its tracks. But don´t look for that happening.(Look it up and see that it could work)

#11, Americans were stridently, loudly opposed to Obamacare too and our "representatives" refused to fight the fight necessary. This is the same. A big chunk of the leadership of both parties is determined to upend America´s identity and turn us into a "Hispanic" culture!!!!!!

The only complaint I have with the Constitution is that there is not a quicker way to remove a tyrant. The President has violated his oath of office on numerous occasions. His responsibility is to "faithfully execute the laws". Why would that statute be up for interpretation? Yet it is. Obama is about to say that his interpretation of the law is that there is no law. Maybe we´ll get a Constitutional amendment after this abomination is gone.

How are we going to pay for this? Maybe once the 47% realize they are going to pay for it, they will finally demand impeachment because there will be no money left for all the government entitlements. Union pensions, food stamps, welfare, disability, unemployment, medicare, Social security, Military benefits, reparations.

The Republicans should be pounding away on the fact that the Democrats are illegally inviting criminals from the south into this country for votes. Immigration is a big issue and most of the American public is against allowing them in.

Win the Midterm Congressional elections, and then impeach a dirty president. Don´t impeach before you win the Senate. I think that big election losses would scare enough Democrat Senators that they might vote to then impeach.

It isn´t that far off.

If Obama legalizes illegal alien parents, how many of these illegals will participate? Won´t they have to register and admit they broke the law? Then, when the Supreme Court or Congress change the ´real´ laws, what will happen? These illegals are now on a list and could be deported, fined, jailed, etc. Not possible? Just asking. I don´t really know.
If Obama does it and there is a long process, I don´t think the illegals will be willing to wait for 5 years, 10 years or longer and will just continue to abuse our laws.

Its for the children. /s

The results of this will be a weaker economy and poorer national security. More crime and more unemployment. More corruption in government. More stolen elections. There are probably many other consequences as well.

All in the name of stopping a ´humanitarian´ crisis.

The other branches of government can put a stop to this.

Can´t help but feel betrayed by our government.

Try to vote them out, but in reality, we are on our own. Expect little or no help from the government.

#19 Not a single Republican in the House or Senate voted for Obamacare . Not one.
They all fought against it, but, were outnumbered.
Presidents have been issuing Executive Orders changing the direction of the country since George Washington.
Congress could pass legislation countering an EO .
However, Harry Reid would have to permit such a bill to be introduced and that will never happen.
In some fantasy scenario where Reid did allow a bill
to be introduced pushing back the EO ,
the 45 Senate Republicans would need
21 Senate Democrats to join them in
a ) passing the legislation and
then b ) overriding Barry´s eventual veto.
The math is just not there for Republicans to stop Barry.
Senate Democrats hold the power.
They will not fight Barry´s EO nor will they convict and remove Barry from office , which is
another reason why talk of impeachment is meaningless.
The only unknown is when Barry
decides to do this and he will.
FTA- " One option would allow immigrants who are parents of U.S. citizens to apply for temporary legal status,
which would let them work here legally.
Another option would grant temporary legal status to parents of young people who have been granted deportation deferrals by the Obama administration."

Hard to believe that he is doing all this in broad daylight and getting away with it. Opening our borders wide open. Letting anyone in without any identification. Using our Border Patrol as a taxi service to quickly redistribute the invaders. Not allowing even our elected officials into the holding centers. Not allowing press in to take pictures or interview anyone.

What the frack??!!! Where´s the outrage? Where´s Congress? Where´s our military to stop this invasion?!

If aliens from all over the world who have no connection to the USA can come here and have a baby that is bestowed with US citizenship by birth with the parents then being given a legal immigration status in this country, the USA will lose control of its future. Right now, beyond a couple of million illegal aliens who come here each year, there are tens of millions of aliens who come to the USA as tourists every year with temporary tourist visas, or under the visa waiver program, who under the immigration laws must depart on a date certain, now if those aliens will be granted a legal US immigration status because they had a baby here, there will be huge numbers of aliens who will come here, ostensibly as tourists, but really with the aim of hiding out and having a baby so that they can stay. Once the USA allows such an alien parent to stay, under humanitarian following to join procedures, the alien´s entire close foreign family will then get to come here and obtain a legal US immigration status.

Back in the 1970´s illegal aliens from the Western Hemisphere used to be classified as Special Immigrants for issuance of immigrant visas if they had a baby in the USA. Congress eliminated that legislative loophole after about a million illegal aliens a year started applying under those provisions for immigrant visas.

Many if not most of Obama´s EO´s are done to circumvent Congress, after he has been declined by them-big distinction if you hear the lefties crying that, "Obama has less EO´s than so and so former president", as they say.

This cannot be what our founders intended in our government.

America is suddenly angry at the laxity, incompetence, and polarizing politics of the Obama administration, the bad optics of the president putting about in his bright golf clothes while the world burns. Certainly, no recent president has failed on so many fronts — honesty, transparency, truthfulness, the economy, foreign policy, the duties of the commander-in-chief, executive responsibilities, and spiritual leadership. For those who are “shocked” at the present meltdown, of a magnitude not seen since the annus horribilis of 1979, in their defense: Obama certainly did not campaign on a new health-care plan that would force Americans to give up the

How Best Not to Respond to ISIS

For the left, American power must never be exercised except in the direst of situations, and even then, it must not be a unilateral exercise of power. This is the logic underlying the White House response to ISIS, or the Islamic State, as it calls itself. At this time, the U.S. military has the capacity to obliterate this gang of thugs with a relatively modest projection of force. If the administration continues to drag its feet, it will be much harder. Yet Obama continues to drag his feet, because he believes that America “leads from behind.”

Challenging times call for extraordinary courage. But at the risk of sounding indelicate, the only cojones associated with President Obama are the ones lined up on the putting green, where his frequent appearances have given rise to a new meaning of the term “stay the course.” You’d think the so-called leader of the free world would at least sound courageous. But at recent press conferences, Mr. President has sauntered in, often late, leaned nonchalantly on the podium, and delivered a lackluster “lecture” in a tone of voice more peremptory than somber. His record for ambiguity and dullness reached a nadir of

August 22 is another deadline for the Obama administration’s IRS officials to come clean about their clear malfeasance in office. Judge Emmet Sullivan, who has acted sua sponte to compel IRS officials to provide all the details surrounding the “lost” e-mails, has the reputation of a judicial pit bull, a federal judge who insists that his orders and his office be treated with proper respect. Placing himself directly in the middle of this scandal, Judge Sullivan has removed the favored riposte by the left: attack the questioner.

A brutal natural experiment is underway demonstrating the role of race, riots, and radicals in determining whose death is noted, and whose ignored in racialized America when unarmed young men are shot and killed by police. While American and world media, along with the President and Attorney General of the United States, obsess over the death of Michael Brown at the hands of the Ferguson, Missouri police, few people outside of Utah have heard of the remarkably parallel and contemporaneous death of Dillon Taylor, an unarmed young man (and father-to-be) from a gun shot by a Salt Lake City policeman,

Spreading from front page to two-thirds of an inside page, the New York Times, in its Aug. 18 edition, goes all out to document the miseries of life in Gaza. Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren, reporting from Gaza City, informs readers that “telltale signs of the displaced are everywhere in Gaza”. (“In Torn Gaza, If Roof Stands, It’s Now Home”) And, very diligently, she doesn’t miss any of these signs. In her piece, a lawyer’s office becomes a makeshift home for kids.

Black Racism is Politically Correct

I´m amazed at how openly racist black Liberals have become, and how few non-blacks are willing to call them out on it. I was waiting to be interviewed on CNN the other night, and I was listening in advance of my appearance to an interview of a Missouri legislator said to Don Lemmon, [pp] "The way for Ferguson Missouri to improve public relations is to have more black cops." Can you imagine the reaction if a city asked for more white cops? This call for "blackness" as an answer to what´s plaguing the black community is happening a lot, and quite frankly is

Officials with the Obama administration held nothing back when speaking about the current halt on the shipment of missiles to Israel. The Wall Street Journal reports that in the war between Israel and Hamas, US officials stated that “Mr. Netanyahu and his national security team are both reckless and untrustworthy’.” What an absolutely perfect description of Obama. I’m going to add it to the growing list of adjectives reserved just for him.

I guess it´s easy to be moral when morality is defined as whatever you need at that moment. Still, it’s annoying to listen to people with such a weird, unearned sense of their own moral superiority. In truth, they are utterly morally illiterate. These are folks who draw parallels between Hamas and Israel when the only parallel between the Israelis and the jihadist degenerates is that they share the habit of breathing oxygen. You’d be better off discussing ethics with your terrier. At least your dog isn’t going to come up with excuses for Ted Kennedy. They´re delusional in that they really

He’s baaaaack, like a bad penny.

One reason predictions of a Mitt Romney victory in 2012 were inaccurate, say analysts, is that the turnout among certain Democrat constituencies — in particular blacks and Hispanics -- was greater than expected. And what a significant factor this is! Whether we call it getting out the vote, having a great “ground game” or just turnout, it can make or break an election. But while the phrase “getting out the vote” is well understood, there is a lesser known election strategy: getting in the vote. What’s the difference? While the former involves getting as many as possible of the set number

When the history books are written, they will credit Barack Obama for making Richard Nixon look like Moses. Forty years ago this evening, in a televised address to the nation, Nixon told the American people that, effective noon the next day, “I shall resign the presidency.” Since then the man’s failings have been exhaustively chronicled, and on this sorry anniversary they’ve once again been dragged out

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS. Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal. “I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose. (Tweet) It came after Willow Palin´s ex-boyfriend allegedly engage in some

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

Camp Edwards - Police and military officials are searching for three officers from the Afghanistan National Army who were engaged in a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. Massachusetts National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. James Sahady said the three men were reported missing on Saturday night after travelling into Hyannis that day. “They didn´t report back (to the base),” Sahady said. “There is no indication they pose a threat to the public.” Police and base officials are cooperating in the search for the three men, identified as Maj. Jan Mohammad Arash, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, and Capt. Noorullah Aminyar.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

Note: Read the Hillary Clinton-Saul Alinsky Letters here. Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveal new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development. Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show. The letters obtained by the Free Beacon are part

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

that everybody gets wrong

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.
