Obama’s Immigration Reform Speech

Posted by Billy On November - 21 - 2014

“President” Obama made his well-announced speech this evening about his plans on immigration reform. His televised speech was to inform the American people how he was going to single-handedly take the necessary steps for roughly 5 million illegal immigrants to take the path to citizenship here in the United States. A path that has been traveled once before when Ronald Reagan along with Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

In 1986 the steps taken were constitutional even though the original bill was butchered to get the job done. This year Obama’s plans are to do what “he” feels is the right thing. His plans are to bypass Congress using executive orders. His plans go against what the majority of the American people are clearly asking for from their government.

As for his speech, I totally agree with one comment Obama made this evening. Obama commented by saying…

“But today, our immigration system is broken, and everybody knows it.”

As for the rest of it, well that is a whole other thing. Obama claiming to actively work on immigration issues since he took office is correct, but not in the way he presented it. In his speech, he states he increased border patrol agents and technology. In turn securing the borders and decreasing the number of illegal immigrants that crossed the border in the past six years.

While I agree with him being active, I’m sure I’m not the only one who remembers how Obama and friends tried to work on immigration reform. How about his handling of the Bill which was passed in Arizona in 2010. Let’s not forget Obama’s top cop Eric Holder working with him on the Fast and Furious scandal. Those are just two of the many ways Obama has been working hard for our national security. I won’t even mention the Feds over-reach of power when it comes to American citizens protecting their own land along the border.

In his speech, Obama points out how Congress had put forth a bill which did not pass because of the “Republicans in the House” wouldn’t allow it. It really pains me to see the so-called leader of the free world act like a child who didn’t get his way and is now going to leave with his ball. Too bad Obama if it doesn’t go the way you wanted. We have a representative republic here in America and if you were looking to be a king or dictator, you should have gone some where else like Kenya or the Middle East.

As in 1986, President Reagan and Congress had good intention (so they say) and we the People believe in our elected officials to do the right thing and keep to their word, we can’t expect any different approach to how this time it will be done correctly. All it will do (in my opinion), is to make it more appealing to sneak into this country illegally so in another thirty years, we can have this same situation again. His speech was nothing more than political tactic being used to prepare for the 2016 election. Obama has no legal authority to go forth with these plans of his towards making over five million illegal immigrants citizens. Obama should be impeached if he actually signs any executive order in regards to his immigration reform speech.

Our Sovereignty Is Being Lost

Posted by Billy On August - 6 - 2014

What makes a country an independent entity? The definition is easy to find, but can confuse the simple of politicians. The problem these day for the United States of America is that we are slowly losing our sovereignty to the rest of the world thanks to our political leaders in Washington DC. Both houses of Congress as well as the current administration don’t care about the condition of this country since they write laws they themselves will never have to follow even if they lose their next election.

Like most of the people here in America, they have their history which comes from another country. My family came here in the early 1900’s from Germany (Deutschland) and Ireland. From the time they arrived, they wanted to be citizens and learn English so to “fit” in. Something my grandparents wanted to do along with becoming American citizens.

According to the Constitution, the federal level of the government is responsible for monitoring the immigrants wanting to come here legally and to stop the illegal ones from getting in. It’s a matter of national security that we have secured borders from invasion or any plots that will harm the nation in any way. It’s gotten to the point to where the politicians don’t even care. We are currently having thousands of illegal immigrants children rushing the southern border and the border patrol agents are informed to assist and help instead of arresting and detaining them. Reports have come out stating the agents aren’t even able to do their jobs since they are too busy running after kids. and finding temporary homes (in America) for them to stay in.

With the federal government doing this without any regard to the citizens is ridiculous. Congress is trying to pass a bill to help fund all the placements of these children instead of sending them back from where they came from. The Obama Administration is asking for even more money than Congress is trying to pass. Meanwhile this country is $17 trillion+ in debt and now we’re going to spend more money on people who aren’t even citizens. How are we as a nation to survive? As it is, Congress and the White House can’t even pass a bill to fund securing the borders.

Radio show host Michael Savage coined the phase of language, border and culture is what defines a country and keeps it going. America doesn’t even have an official language, our borders have been blurred and as for our culture, we’re slowly losing any sign of that too. At the current pace, we will no longer be the United States of America in the near future. Please write your Congressman and House Representative to stop the madness. We as citizens have a duty to protect this country from enemies foreign and domestic and that includes our politicians.

Alabama’s New Immigration Law

Posted by Billy On October - 8 - 2011

Recently the state of Alabama has passed a new law where the school system will be checking the immigration status of any new student who enrolls in their schools. Hispanic families are removing their children in fear of being caught by officials.

Hundreds of student throughout the state have either been not going to school or have told their teachers that they will be moving to avoid arrest and/or deportation. In response the teachers are instructing students not to leave and not to worry about the police. While I understand the feeling of the teachers trying to help the children, but these students shouldn’t be in the school system. This law is being put into affect because of the illegal immigration problem that is out of control. A law that should not have ever been put into affect if the federal government was doing the job they needed to years ago.

While this is an sad issue for illegal immigrants because of them having to up-root themselves from the life they made here, but quite honestly, they have no illegal right to be here in the first place.

In the meantime, president Obama‘s Administration has decided to file an appeal against the ruling. Again, Obama has decided to not uphold the U.S. Constitution. This type of move by his administration clearly shows his lack of concern for the American people that he has sworn to protect and serve. This is clearly a political move to get the votes he needs to win the election next year.
The illegal immigration issue is now becoming the biggest issue for the American people. Many states are trying to write laws to protect the citizens from the affects of illegal immigrant coming across the border in droves. They are several county sheriffs in Arizona who have filed suits against the Obama Administration in regards to the Fast and Furious campaign that went awry when officer Terry was killed by the same weapons that the Alcohol, Tabacco and Firearms (ATF) lost track of going over the Mexico border.

The iimigration laws here need to be reformed. I don’t mean to allow these people amnesty or a fast-track way to citizenship. I mean we need to secure and close our borders, both the north and south. Not because of the Hispanic population coming across, but because of the possibility of terrorist coming through as well. We have a current employment problem in America. Nearly 16% of the working population is unemployed and we have over 100,000 legal immigrants coming into America each month. We need to slow down the rate until we can get some real leaders in Washington to get this country back on track.

The State Of Georgia Is Being Sued On Immigration Law

Posted by Billy On June - 27 - 2011

A federal judge in Atlanta has decided that the new state law Georgia passed recently is unconstitutional and has issued an order which will temporarily block enforcement of the state’s law which is to take effect this Friday. The Judge Thomas Thrash’s order to block the law, which would penalize anyone who transports or harbor illegal immigrants, from taking place.

Since when is it unconstitutional to uphold the laws which have passed. The Constitution clearly states that the States have power over the federal government when it comes to laws in their state. Illegal immigration is ILLEGAL, period. We as Americans have the right to protect our sovereignty and this judge’s decision is just wrong. The lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who’s name is in and of itself is a joke. How can you protect America’s liberties if you’re giving rights to non citizens? The ACLU is joined by the Southern Poverty Law Center and several other civil and immigration right groups. Again immigration rights pertain to immigrants coming here legally.

The Anti-Defamation League along with 11 Latin American countries — Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru — have joined as plaintiffs in the suit. My thoughts on that is…these countries have no rights to be involved in any way to dispute our laws. Most (if not all) of these countries have strict immigration laws of their own, so who are they to dictate to us about our laws?

Republican Gov. Nathan Deal and other state officials have asked Thrash to dismiss the class-action suit, arguing the law is constitutional, the groups have no standing to sue and the state should be immune from such lawsuits anyway. I agree with the Governor’s stance, other countries have no rights in any other country’s laws which includes the United States.

Georgia’s new law, State House Bill 87, allows police to check the immigration status of suspects who can’t provide accepted identification. It will also let law enforcement agencies to detain and hand over to federal authorities someone found to be in this country illegally. The law also states that lying about immigration status on job applications is a felony. The law requires many employers to use a federal database to check immigration status of any prospective employees. This is the way it’s suppose to be in the first place, but the federal government has made it so easy for illegal immigrants to come into the country and acquire jobs.

The sovereignty of this country is in jeopardy and with states enacting these laws, it’s the only way we will ever get it back.
