Eric Holder: Citizenship For
Illegal Immigrants Is A ‘Matter
Of Civil And Human Rights’

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/26/2013 3:20:10 PM

During an April 24 address to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), Attorney General Eric Holder told the crowd that “creating a pathway to earned citizenship” is a critical element of any comprehensive immigration reform plan. He said that establishing legal status for the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants is a “matter of civil and human rights.” “Creating a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in this country is essential,” Holder said to applause. “The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented by creating a mechanism for

Wow. Just wow. Isn´t this astonishing coming from the one who is the highest ranking law enforcement officer of the USA. That is shocking and terribly, terribly disturbing. I´m sure some other country would feel the same way if millions and millions of illegals entered their country. s/o

Let´s harrass and punish law abiding US citizens just because they own certain typs of guns or gun accessories.

But illegal aliens are to be coddled and treated with kid gloves.

Elections have consequences, and we are getting exactly what we deserve for allowing the worst president in history to be re-elected last November.

What happened to this country?????

Let me get this straight, they break the law to enter this country (making them criminals), and we are supposed to reward their criminal behavior with "a path to citizenship"???

What idiot thinks this is a good idea?

What about MY Civil and Human Rights?
This government is turning me and mine into SLAVES, forcing us to support, educate and house people who have invaded our country.
I have no more compassion, I just want them deported. I´ve had enough of illegals, their demands, La Raza and the Obama Administration.
Holder is a traitor to America.

Why not make all Mexican citizens USA citizens and start sending them benefits right now and just open up the border. The Fed could just print a trillion dollars a month instead of the 85 billion already being printed.. Why are we giving our country away ? Will anyone fight back ?

It horrifies me that this administration, which was sworn to protect and defend our Constitution, does absolutely whatever it wants. But frankly, that is who they are and who they´ve always been. They aren´t hiding. The ones who really infuriate me are guys like McCain, Rubio, et al. who are on board with this nonsense. We are done.

Eric Holder needs to be drug-tested.

Integrity of borders is a matter of international civilization and national sovereignty. The right to own property is not recognized everywhere in the world, and that´s one of the things that USED to make this country special.

But these days we see too many slippery slopes and government dopes....

I had this same argument with a prominent leftist. They honestly believe that ANYBODY should automatically become a US citizen with voting rights just by reaching US soil. When I pointed out that means the Chinese could just overrun the US Embassy and gain electoral control over the presidency he had no response to that.

What is with this 11 million figure. That number has been the same since I was in high school.

It is close t0 30 to 50 million and then times that by 4 to 8 with all of their relatives regardless what nations they are from. It is not just South of the Border for CA, AZ, NM, and TX - there are waves of illegal aliens entering our country from ALL borders of the country.

And the reality - give them easy access to citizenship = Dem voters and welfare recepients.

Those with skills, education and advanced degrees are either sponsored by employment or family or are recruited to move to the US.


And as prior poster stated Holder´s belief is that every one in the world has the right to become a citizen of the US.

Well, what bleep happened to my parents who entered this country legally and obtained American citizenship the legal and correct way (coming from France and Italy and not on a boat but a plane)?

This alone should be grounds for removal from office.

This is stupidity to the point of insanity. Under corrupt "conservatives", at least the Chinese had to purchase our country. But, if it´s a "human right" to become an American citizen simply by coming into the country then all an invading army needs to do is walk right in and take it free of charge. Liberals will greet them all with "love" and food stamps.

If everything is a right then nothing is a right. The left believes everyone has the right to a job, housing, food, clothing, cell phone, healthcare, livable wage - where does it end? Eric does that civil and human right apply to everyone in the world? So everyone in the world has the right to come here and be a citizen. What a fool he is and also those who listened and willingly agreed.

What right does he have to speak about civil and human rights. What about the human rights of those Mexicans who died as a result of fast and furious, what about the human rights of those babies murdered at his wife´s abortion clinic? Or are their rights only valid when it means a vote for one of your cronies or more money in your pocket Mr. Holder.

This is political pandering and the race card being played before the very liberal ethnic and immigrant rights groups who are politically allied with the liberal Democrats. The liberal Democrats, and Holder is a liberal Democrat, know that probably 85 to 90% of illegal aliens who would be given US citizenship as the result of the current liberal Democrat amnesty and path to citizenship proposal now in Congress would eventually become Democrat voters of the socialist oriented species.

If that happens and all the unintended consequences start occurring, like the Republicans being no longer able to win states like Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Texas just as they can no longer win in California, the blame should rest squarely upon cheap foreign labor seeking Republicans, who are obviously feeling peachy these days about destroying the current two party political system in the USA by handing the liberal Democrats, first the political cover to pass their amnesty and path to citizenship, and then eventually tens of millions of new foreign born voters in the years ahead.

Looks like Holder is playing the race card against the wimpy Republicans who oppose granting US citizenship to up to 20 million illegal aliens and that many of their foreign family members who would then get to come here. Once the race card is on the table the wimpy Republicans usually fold pretty quickly, we saw that clearly back during the housing crisis.

It´s not just EH, it´s all of DC that have become whores looking for votes.

In light of what happened in Boston, they should put a hold on the vote and freeze immigration. They never rule that these immigrants must be able to support themselves.

”Eric Holder: Citizenship for illegal immigrants is a ‘matter of ensuring Democrat majorities” --

#29 gets it (although I’d insert the word “perpetual” between “ensuring” and “Democrat"). Holder’s “rights” include one tacit quid-pro-quo for the "new Americans": pulling the “D” lever in every election.

You want to pop a leftist’s circuit-breakers? Tell him you’re all in favor of unlimited, unrestricted immigration – with the proviso that this flavor of “citizenship” bars the (ahem) holders, and their offspring to the n-th generation, from voting and from receiving so much as a dime of government largesse.

I have here in my hand a list of six people who think Darrell Issa is a fellow traveler of Joseph McCarthy.

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Baby Muhammad Mosa Khan was accused of being part of a ruthless gang of gas thieves who tried to kill police by hurling stones at them during a raid. Last week he was pictured at court in Lahore sitting on his grandfather´s lap, contentedly sucking on a bottle of milk as the charges against him were read out. A Pakistani lawyer said the judge announced the decision after Saturday´s court hearing during which police said it had dropped the charge

Sucking carbon dioxide out of the air might be used as a last-ditch attempt to stop global warming, UN scientists say. The technology is proposed as a ‘Plan B’ if Governments fail to cut carbon dioxide emissions by up to 70 per cent before 2050. Reducing greenhouse gases to manageable levels will cost up to four per cent of global GDP by 2030, according to a draft version of a report to be published in Berlin on Sunday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). That would involve Britain and other nations increasing spending ten-fold on wind farms and other green

The historical significance of this moment cannot be overstated. The presidents will come together as a powerful symbol of America’s ability, as demonstrated 50 years ago, to

In late March, the Chicago Board of Education announced an ambitious plan to implement its “turnaround” model for three low-performing elementary schools in poor, predominantly black neighborhoods. The turnaround process involves the sacking of every teacher and staffer at each of the schools, according to an email from the Chicago Teachers Union obtained by The Daily Caller. Naturally, the union bosses aren’t happy that the nation’s third-largest school district is employing such sweeping measures to improve some of its worst schools. Still reeling from the closure of 50 schools in 2013, embattled Chicago Teachers Union Karen Lewis called the turnaround plan “a slap

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
