White House pursuing plan to expand immigrant rights

says the LA Times

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 the proposals on condition of anonymity.

Obama said last month that because Congress had failed to act on comprehensive immigration reform, he would take executive action to “fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own.”

Now let’s examine Obama’s evolution on illegal immigration. From Patterico:

President Obama, July, 2010:

For example, there are those in the immigrants’ rights community who have argued passionately that we should simply provide those who are [here] illegally with legal status, or at least ignore the laws on the books and put an end to deportation until we have better laws. And often this argument is framed in moral terms: Why should we punish people who are just trying to earn a living?

I recognize the sense of compassion that drives this argument, but I believe such an indiscriminate approach would be both unwise and unfair. It would suggest to those thinking about coming here illegally that there will be no repercussions for such a decision. And this could lead to a surge in more illegal immigration. And it would also ignore the millions of people around the world who are waiting in line to come here legally.

President Obama’s response to an immigration challenge, November, 2013:

“I need your help,” a young man shouted, as he called for the president to halt the deportations of some of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country. “You have a power to stop deportations for all.”

“Actually, I don’t, and that’s why we’re here,” the president responded as the heckler and several others continued shouting, breaking out into a chant of “stop deportations!”

“Now, what you need to know, when I’m speaking as president of the United States, and I come to this community, is that, in fact, if I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so,” Obama said. “But we’re also a nation of laws. That’s part of our tradition. And so the easy way out is to try to yell and pretend like I can do something by violating our laws.”

“What I’m proposing is the harder path, which is to use our democratic processes to achieve the same goal that you want to achieve, but it won’t be as easy as just shouting,” he continued. “It requires us lobbying and getting it done.”

President Obama, now:

[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 the proposals on condition of anonymity.

The first thing we note is that Obama again validates Jim Geraghty. Absolutely nothing Obama says is durable. He cannot ever be taken at his word.

Second, we note that this is mission creep on a grand scale.

Obama said that “most children” will go home. You already know that since they have been scattered so as not to be able to locate them this statement is no more honest than any other Obama utterance.

Obama is facing the real possibility of losing the Senate come fall. He has said that such a loss would make his last two years “intolerable.” Obama has managed to stir America to anger. His approval rating is falling, Americans wish they’d elected Romney, and 77% want illegals sent home.

What’s a dictator to do?

The answer is create votes.

I will bet that Obama grants citizenship to at least five million illegal aliens in this country before November. Can he unilaterally do that? No, but…

Who’s going to stop him?

He will decree that illegals here more than five years qualify as citizens and are permitted to vote in the fall and 2016 elections. As democrats have no morals or ethics, they will be happy and willing to abet the violation of Obama’s oath of office and the law. They’ll be procuring more of what they want most- low information, illiterate, ignorant dependents to expand the rolls of democrat voters.

Outside of Boehner’s lawsuit, the GOP will have no options.

Impeachment?

Obama is begging to be impeached. Although no Republican leaders have called for Obama’s impeachment, the White House is hearing voices:

JON ACOSTA, CNN: Dan Pfeiffer said earlier this morning that I would not discount impeachment as a possibility. Do you really believe that the president could be impeached? >

JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE: Well, I think there are senior members of the Republican political party or certainly prominent voices in the Republican party who are calling for exactly that

ACOSTA: Who? Who is that? Sarah Palin is one of them.

EARNEST: She’s mentioned it. Someone mentioned earlier —

ACOSTA: [inaudible] a prominent voice in the Republican party?

REPORTER #2: Anybody in the Republican leadership seriously talking about it?

EARNEST: Well, I think Sarah Palin considers herself to be a leader.

ACOSTA: Hang on John, this is my question. There have been a lot of fundraising announcements within the Democratic party with the word impeachment in it. This sounds like a fundraising ploy, a political ploy, not a real thing. You don’t really think the president is going to be impeached, do you?

EARNEST: Well, Jim, I think that there are some Republicans, including some Republicans who are running for office, hoping that they can get into office so that they can impeach the president. That is apparently a view that they hold because that’s one they have repeatedly expressed publicly.

I think what’s really important —

ACOSTA: Is the White House Counsel Office looking at this? Are you studying the possibility of being impeached?

EARNEST: Here’s the thing I think that is important about this. And again, we are coming up on a pivotal week. Next week will be the last week that Congress is in session before Labor Day. There are at least two items of business that members of Congress themselves have identified as important priorities….

It’s become a circus:

In an almost farcical twist on the recent political debate, the Obama White House has joined the Democratic fundraising apparatus in what appears to be a campaign to encourage Republicans to impeach the president.

In the past 48 hours, first lady Michelle Obama, White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer, White House spokesman Josh Earnest, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and others have raised the specter of an Obama impeachment.

The first lady was first to broach the subject, in a Thursday evening fundraising speech in Chicago. “If we lose these midterm elections, it’s going to be a whole lot harder to finish what we started,” Obama said, “because we’ll just see more of the same out in Washington — more obstructions, more lawsuits, and talk about impeachment.”

Top White House aide Pfeiffer really got the ball rolling Friday morning at a Christian Science Monitor reporters’ breakfast. “I saw a poll today that had a huge portion of the Republican Party base saying they supported impeaching the president,” Pfeiffer said. “A lot of people in this town laugh that off. I would not discount that possibility.” Asked whether an impeachment battle might be a “good thing” for the president’s popularity, Pfeiffer said, “We take it very seriously and I don’t think it would be a good thing. But I think it would be foolish to discount the possibility that Republicans would at least consider going down that path.”

So why is the White House sending in the clowns?

MONEY.

The Democrats’ congressional campaign arm pulled in $2.1 million in online donations over the weekend — the best four-day haul of the current election cycle — largely propelled by fundraising pitches tied to speculation that House Republicans could pursue the impeachment of President Obama.

Democrats have consistently used impeachment — a prospect that has been floated by several prominent conservatives but has not been embraced by most of the Republican establishment — to fill their campaign coffers and their polling has shown that fear of an impeachment attempt as well as the House GOP’s current attempts to sue President Obama have the potential to drive midterm turnout on the left.

While democrats have neither ethics nor morals, what they do have is money and when they hear the dog whistle of impeachment they come running to protect the dictator.

Back in January I wrote:

An animal is most dangerous when cornered. As a lame duck, Barack Obama is now cornered. No one is listening to him and no one trusts him. Beware.

Beware, indeed. Obama is begging to be impeached because he can profit from it and because he’s planning to do something worthy of impeachment. And when he does and they do, all we’ll hear is “I told you so.”

And so did I.

    In three days, Democrats have sent out 11 (ELEVEN) emails on a non-existent threat of impeachment.

    And of course, following in the same vein as all other brain dead Obama press secretaries, Earnest could not name any Republican demanding impeachment.

    But the real scandal?

    According to the goverment’s own TAGG website, as of yesterday, American taxpayers have funded $518,092,034.00 to house illegal unaccompanied alien children since January 1, 2014. That is for the estimated 36,000 UACs that have entered since January 1, 2014. Do the math.

    This is a little sketchy. The children are supposed to have relatives who will sponsor them and care for them; although the MS 13 group looks beyond the Teddy Bears and soccer ball stage.

    The administration says we will not keep families apart, but if they have no family up here, their family must be in Central America. Since we don’t want to separate families, we better ship those without family sponsors back home.

    Am I being too practical?

    I I being too practical?

    Is the real reason we are accepting these temporary orphans, so that they can become orphan babes for large families back in Central America?

    No one has answered these questions, and they should be answered.

    Are we going to let other countries decide how many of their uneducated people we should absorb? This seems to be the only limit switch, but who is choosing what cast-offs from what countries we are going to accept. I have known hundreds of Canadians who wished to become Americans, but they were productive citizens with skills and they spoke English. They might not be as predictable as Third World people who come here to sign up for the welfare and the Obama phones.s the real reason we are accepting these temporary orphans, so that they can become orphan babes for large families bas who wished to become Americans, but they were productive citizens with skills and they spoke English.

    Obama and the left used to claim that immigration reform was not about amnesty. Then, just as Obama claims there is nothing he can do about the current flood of illegal immigrants because, well, the law is the law, he turns right around and proposes to illegally and unilaterally do, because immigration reform cannot be agreed upon, something that is not even supposed to be a part of immigration reform.

    Anyone that believes that open borders and luring illegal immigrants into the United States is about anything other than securing perpetual liberal power is a complete, drooling, stark, staring idiotic lunatic.

    He and the rest of the liberals want an impeachment battle to rally the troops, take attention away from a long list of failures and to have one more issue to blame those failures (which would all predate impeachment) on. Impeachment would be a massive waste of time; it would never happen before Obama’s term is over and if anyone expects Obama to resign in shame or for the good of the country… come on. Really. In fact, I will be surprised if he willingly leaves in 2016.

    @Skook:

    Here’s the problem: HHS takes control of the UACs from the Border Patrol. HHS is then responsible for “relocation.” But no one at HHS will answer how they determine who gets these kids. It seems that these kids often have a name somewhere on them, HHS then contacts that person and if they say they are a family member, the kid is turned over to the person claiming them. No background check is done, no check to see if the family member are, themselves, legal. NADA. Just hand the kids over. If I wanted to traffic in child prostitution, what better system could I ask for? Oh, and the person claiming the kid gets a hefty monthly stipend for taking care of the kid.

    But the cost to the American taxpayer is mind boggling. One group, Catholic Charities of Miami, got $4,098,927.00 to house 60 UACs. You can do the math. And an interesting thing happened while I was doing research for a Congressman; most of the money doled out by HHS for “unaccompanied alien children” has been doled out since June, 2012, when Obama [illegally] created a Dream Act through an executive order.

    One group in Austin, Texas, Southwest Key Programs, has been awarded $484,769,471.00 for UACs since 2003, most of it after June, 2012. The president/CEO of Southwest Key is Juan Sanchez, who is also a board member for La Raza and has been given awards from LULAC, both are radical Reconquista groups. Oh, yeah, Dr. Juan Sanches draws a tony salary of $338,770/per year and his wife, who also works for Southwest Key as VP, draws $164,656./year.

    These groups, supposedly helping the UACs, are raking in millions, and millions and millions of $$. The scam seems to be bigger than ACORN could have hoped for.

    Do not forget the lesson of Br’er Rabbit. Right now is not the time to talk about impeachment of Obama. In fact, the Democrats and Obama are daring Republicans to start impeachment right now before the Novermber elections. So long as Democrats hold the Senate, impeachment can only serve as a rallying cry to motivate Democrats to vote in 2014. Don’t give them what they want, instead, tell Democrats that there is no intent to impeach. Instead, let’s just concentrate on getting as many Conservatives as possible elected. Plenty of time to talk about impeachment after the Republicans win back the Senate.

    “Although no Republican leaders have called for Obama’s impeachment…”

    Steve King, Michele Bachmann, Tim Scott, Jim Sensenbrenner, Darrell Issa, Mo Brooks, Michael Burgess, Jon Kyl, Trey Radel, Louie Gohmert, James Inhofe, Tom Coburn, Blake Farenthold, and Kerry Bentivolio have all publicly discussed impeaching Obama.

    But I guess one could say these folks aren’t “leaders” and one could also parse what “called” means but that would sound like something Bill Clinton would do.

    Just as in 2012, when they had no successes to campaign on, this administration wishes to create a contentious situation with which to rally their ignorant base and divert attention from broken promises, lies, scandals and failure.

    @Skook: The majority of the ‘children’ are over 13. There are very few little ones. obama is pulling on the heart strings of the American people by saying all of the illegals are small children. The jig is up though. This is a manufactured crisis by obama to complete another one of the saul alinksy’s eight rules to a socialist state. The American people are tired of being second and playing second fiddle to illegals. American citizens want to be the priority as they should. The revolution has begun.

    The impeachment talk is about one thing: black turnout. The left needs to keep it racial in order to get the black precinct workers to pass out stacks of ballots to their black neighbors and they’ll need them in droves in order to supplement the foreign citizens votes if they intend to hang onto enough Senate seats to prolong this farce.

    The loyal leftist media would make an actual impeachment impossible. But the threat might rally the race-based vote and swing a few tight races.

    They are not illegal aliens – they are all unregistered democrats.
    This county is beyond impeachment. The boner from ohio said impeachment was “off the table.” As an assemblyman from his district in ohio-boner was the laziest elected official to hold an elected position.
    Garbage and the smell of garbage always floats to the top of the cesspool.

    Shock: 80% of U.S. population growth is from immigrants, resources being sucked dry

    According to Negative Population Growth Inc., Tracy Canada, the group’s deputy director, “With increased population, we see a direct increase in the problems our nation faces on a daily basis: pollution, over-consumption, traffic gridlock, crowded schools and hospitals, overburdened social services, unemployment, crumbling infrastructure, urban sprawl, over-development, threatened or extinct animal and plant species, and dwindling natural resources.”

    NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    The group just published a new report, “Our Plundered Planet.”
