Obama: My Amnesty Programs
Not Luring ´Misinformed´
Parents to Send Kids to US

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/9/2014 8:57:54 PM

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

The people in Central America who are sending their children to unlawfully cross the borderline are not misinformed, they are getting their information about Obama´ non enforcement of the immigration laws policies from relatives, friends, and countrymen already inside the US illegally, who are telling the people in Central America that once the children cross into the USA that Obama will not send them back and would order the US Government to take care of them.

That´s exactly what is happening now along the borderline, where Obama has implemented a catch and release program that releases illegal aliens caught unlawfully crossing the borderline and gives the illegal aliens bus tickets to wherever they wish to travel.

Obama has no intention of stopping the flow of illegal aliens coming into the USA, instead Obama is attempting to cow and pressure the Republicans to facilitate a massive liberal Democrat designed amnesty under the guise of what Obama has been calling comprehensive immigration reform which contains provisions that would essentially legalize the flow of illegal aliens now coming in on into the future.

The onus rests upon ´The Won.´

I´d bet the farm the US State Department paid for those ads running on South American radio stations, informing citizens of the ´immigration loop hole.´ Obama wasted no time signing away Clinton´s welfare reform law - so why not sign away the 2008 law with a stroke of his pen?

By the way - anyone notice the overweight mothers accompanying those ´children?´ Do any look as if they´ve walked hundreds - if not thousands of miles to get here??

As Breitbart News has reported, even though "White House officials have gone on a public relations campaign to tell Central Americans that they will not receive amnesty, many illegal immigrants have said they traveled to America believing the Obama administration would never deport them if they made it across the U.S.-Mexico border."

Who told them they´d never be deported? Where did they get that impression? Maybe having no border control gave them that impression?
Or maybe it was the planes and buses that ferried them into the US that gave them that impression?
Maybe it was the housing they got?
Maybe it was Glenn Beck´s soccer balls and other goodies?
Maybe it was the "Get Free Stuff All Who Enter Here" signs at the holding centers?

Sure looks like amnesty to these eyes.

You know the Bible describes Satan as the father of lies. I am beginning to believe Obama is his ambitious younger brother. Yesterday, while watching him tell lie after lie I can think of no other excuse except that he is evil, Beelzebub evil. Look to any leader throughout history that we would consider evil and they have used the same tactics as Obama. Lying is used to placate the masses. They work their evil under secrecy and lie to the people about what they are doing. Admittedly, I sound like a kook, but better kook-like than willfully ignorant. People don´t want to believe that an evil man could ever come to power in this country. It is time for Americans to step back and do a little critical thinking.

I happened to hear (accidentally) some of what he was saying yesterday in Texas. He was mouthing off about the resources needed to "process" all of these "immigrants". As I heard him, I wondered "Process who for what?" These people are in the country illegally, they have NO status for anything here, are NOT American citizens, etc. so what has to be processed? They are here illegally and all that has to be done is to hold them long enough to organize the transportation to deport them to where they came from. Problem solved. And the more resources we need along the border are known as a bull tight fence topped with razor wire and more border agents and/or National Guard troops station along the border to intercept the illegals and drug smugglers. It´s not rocket science. Just common sense.

Obama refuses to enforce the immigration laws but at the same time is expanding the so-called William Wilberforce sex trafficking act to cover all the tens of thousands of young illegal aliens coming into the USA whose parents in Central America paid alien smugglers up to $8,000.00 a head to have the young illegal aliens taken to the US border, that has nothing to do with sex trafficking, thus greatly complicating the legal proceedings necessary to remove them back to Central America.

LA JOYA, Texas—Yellow police tape still hung from fences as Texas rangers walked through the scene where just a day earlier a gang member had gone down in a hail of gunfire in an hours-long shootout with authorities that left two cops wounded. Some police officers spent more than three hours pinned down by the close to 500 shots that were exchanged between authorities and 29-year-old Joaquin Cibrian, a member of the Texas Syndicate gang. Edinburg police had been looking for Cibrian for his alleged role in the execution of a 19-year-old man from Mexico. On Wednesday, a black police

THE DISTINGUISHING feature of the latest war between Israel and Hamas is “offensive tunnels,” as the Israeli army calls them. As of early Wednesday, 28 had been uncovered in Gaza, and nearly half extend into Israel, according to Israeli officials. The tunnels are the reason that the government of Benjamin Netanyahu decided last weekend to launch a ground invasion of Gaza, and they explain why that operation has strong support from Israelis in spite of the relatively heavy casualties it has inflicted. Most significantly, the tunnels show why it has been difficult to reach a cease-fire and why any accord

JERUSALEM – In life, Max Steinberg was known for his courage, athletic prowess and love of Bob Marley songs, his family and friends told an estimated 30,000 people who attended his military funeral on Wednesday. In death, Sgt. Steinberg represented more. As a Jewish American who left the comfort and security of his Los Angeles home to fight — and, last weekend, to die — on Israel’s front lines, the 24-year-old was remembered as a bridge between Israel and the United States, an example of their uniquely close relationship. One dignitary told the crowd that Americans such as Steinberg “deepen

JERUSALEM — The United States on Wednesday put the most direct pressure yet on its ally Israel to cut short its military campaign against Hamas in Gaza, but Secretary of State John F. Kerry did not get a deal from Israel or the Palestinians to stop the bloodshed. Despite a swirl of shuttle diplomacy, the war looked far from over Wednesday. Israeli leaders told their soldiers to prepare for an escalation inside the Gaza Strip, while the leader of Hamas vowed that his Islamist militant movement would not sign a permanent cease-fire until Israel ends its blockade of the coastal

Federal prosecutors brought a total of 5,082 gun violation cases in 2013 recommended by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, compared with 6,791 during the last year of George W.

Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday. But the force of the legal victory was undercut just hours later when another appeals court in Richmond sided with the Obama administration on the subsidy question, setting up an almost certain extended legal battle that could soon reach the Supreme Court.

Numbers are always interesting in the Lone Star State, now on the front lines of its own border crisis. And it’s cost the state plenty in money, time and manpower. Texas Gov.

In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year.

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Republican Party’s bookish former vice presidential nominee, is starting to look like a candidate for the presidency in 2016. In August, Ryan will publish a book with a distinctly campaign-themed title, The Way Forward. On Tuesday, the Federal Election Commission approved of a nationwide book tour sponsored by Ryan’s publisher and the Political Action Committee the Wisconsin congressman founded, Prosperity Action PAC. “The book will address “the state of the conservative movement in America today, discuss how it contrasts with liberal progressivism, and explain what must be done to save what Representative Ryan refers to as the
