Citing Strong Border Control, Obama Advocates For Immigration Reform

May 13, 2011 by  

Citing strong border control, Obama advocates for immigration reformPresident Barack Obama has revealed that he is content with America's border-control practices, so much so that he has called on Congress to pass sweeping immigration reform.

During a speech in El Paso, Texas on May 10, Obama urged lawmakers to pass legislation that would grant more pathways to citizenship for illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States. In regard to questions about the nation's border control enforcement, the President said that his administration has "answered these concerns."

Obama predicted that Republican lawmakers will push for further border security, joking that they will request a moat with alligators.

GOP Congressmen have accused the President of distorting the facts. According to a statement by Representative Michael McCaul (R-Texas), Mexican drug cartels have increased their presence inside the U.S., and the data on spillover crime and violence is "underreported," according to media reports. McCaul claimed that up to 90 percent of Texas' 1,200-mile border "is still not under operational control."

In his speech, Obama said that immigration reform measures could help stimulate the economy, noting that Google, Intel, eBay and Yahoo were created by immigrants.

"We don't want the next Intel or Google to be created in China or India," said Obama.

To Nightmare act AKA Amnesty! The Lib clowns is going to try to shove the same crap again! Bush got the message We said NO! To Amnesty!

    • EddieW

      You nailed it!!! Obozo, our Liar in Chief wants to let 10.8 million ILLEGAl immigrates to have instant citizenship, as uneducated, and will vote for Dem’s who are in trouble!! He wants to quickly make Puerto rico a State for the same reason!! He is determined to destroy this country, and wants many more illegals to take our jobs, to punish the white people of this country!!

      • http://?? Joe H.

        EddieW,
        I agree with you on all but Puerto Rico. The citizens of that place do not WANT to be a state!! They have voted that issue DOWN numerous times in the past!!

      • metalflyer11

        EddieW. What does Puerto Rico has to do with illegal immigration?
        Please explain. PR has been USA territory since 1898.

    • Ellen

      Why does Obama think these people should be given a path to citizenship? Is there a single valid reason? No. They snuck into our borders and abused our welfare system. We need to cut all welfare for immigrants (legal or illegal) and they’ll stop coming. Then, we can work to send back all those who don’t leave when their welfare is cut off. It will take time, but you have to start somewhere. The pity factor for immigrants ended around the same time the pity factor ended for welfare dwellers. They all want someone else to support them and that’s not how life works.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        Ellen,
        anybody that tells you it would be impossible to deport them, ask them if they ever heard of operation WETBACK under Ike??? He deported over a hundred thousand with a lot less government and a lot fewer immigration officers!!! He didn’t have the resources available today!!

      Stan Smith, It’s the Executive Branch of the federal government that executes the laws of Congress, but neither Clinton, Bush nor Obama have enforced our immigration laws and secured our borders. We’ve had an open-borders policy for decades now.

    There are two things that frustrate me with the immigration debate.

    1. How can you say that you want a safe country for those escaping hardships in their homelands? If you ignore our laws, then you are moving us into the same territory of lawlessness they came from. You are protecting no one this way. And I read somewhere that this actually supported in some statistics. As much as we complain about the illegals breaking our laws and costing us money in welfare and medical bills, I read a while back that those who suffer most from the violence spilling across our border isn’t just our citizens but also these illegals we claim to love. Perhaps if we started with enforcing THE LAW, then perhaps this country would be safer for the citizenry and the immigrants (notice that I did not say illegal).

    2. What is the fascination with enforcing the laws against illegal immigration and then saying we need to create paths so the educated stay among us and become legal immigrants? Are we cherry picking the best and brightest among them and say, “you can break the law because you are brilliant?” Are we so quick to forget that Bill Gates was a dropout, as well as other successful businessmen? I want the enforcement, but I don’t want to cherry pick our legal immigration. Make all legal immigration easier. Here would be my gauge for good legal immigration: When the local farmer can afford to sponsor a legal immigrant from another country to work their fields during harvest, then perhaps the cost is balanced. Didn’t you know there already exists a path to sponsor immigrants to do work in the US? So why does farming use illegal immigrants, or construction or any other business for that matter? Perhaps because the system for legal immigration costs too much. Too much money. Too much time. Too much red tape. And perhaps the minimum wage stuff hurts too, and taxes… a whole list of reasons on why we make it cheaper for businesses to do things illegally.

    • crystal

      Obama doesn’t care about this country. He cares only about re-election.

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    So the border is now secure? Yeah, right! Just this week we had a drug raid in our small town. They arrested a 31 year old illegal woman, who had a 10 day old baby and 8 year old twins. They found she had guns, and $22, 000 worth of cocaine in her trailer. The police took her kids, arrested her, and are now looking for her male counterpart. They have already said they doubt they will find him because he is an illegal as well. Her trailer was very close to a bus stop for kids. So our border is secure? I think not.

    • JUKEBOX

      Obama is so stupid to believe that a moat filled with alligators will satisfy the Republicans. I, for one, would not be satisfied. I would prefer a canal filled with Pirahna fish.

      • http://?? Joe H.

        a mine field on the southern bank of that canal would be nice!!

    Agent Brian Terry and three other agents met head-on with five men suspected of being in the country illegally, in a canyon northwest of Nogales, Arizona. The group of men refused to drop their weapons when confronted by the agents, and because of their agency’s directive not to use lethal force, the agents shot beanbags instead of bullets at the gang. The illegal aliens opened fire with live ammunition, and Brian Terry, after firing a friggin bean bag at the enemy, was shot with a real bullet. After Terry’s death, of course, the other agents could then return fire with their own real bullets…but then, agency policy would not allow them to pursue the killers back into Mexico. Having been trained in the use of lethal and less lethal force, I can say unequivocally that there is no practical justification for the use of bean bags or other less lethal means against armed suspects; this is purely a bureacratic concoction. If this is the kind of policy this administration advocates then any ‘reforms’ it proposes are likely to be just as absurd.

  • azwayne

    When lies have to be used, we should not trust the liars. Used to be a liar got fired, of for the good old days. Frankly I still believe it’s wrong, we want fence that hasn’t been done, we want law enforcement at the fence that enforces the meaning, then start sending the illegals back, let them volunteer first then enforce our laws.

  • lonesomedove

    We do not need a way to citizenship for any invader. We need to run them down and deport them immediately. It matters not that they want a better life, if they had any gonads, they would have a better life at home.

    We need to repeal the XIV amendment, it has served its intended purpose. All of the freed slaves and their children are now gone; all that remain are citizens. Remember the intent of a law/amendment when it is adopted determines its meaning for all time – the supporters of the 14th said, “A Frenchman, born on American soil, is a Frenchman.” Place of birth does not determine citizenship per the 14th, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION THEREOF, are citizens of the United states and of the State wherein they reside.”

    The president of Mexico agrees with the 14th and me: “Mexico does not end at its borders. Wherever there is a Mexican, there is Mexico.” Invaders from Mexico (or any other country) cannot have children here and have them become citizens by birth because they are SUBJECTS of their native country.

    In the absence of the 14th, there can be no confusion; the only path to citizen status is to be born to citizen parents or be naturalized. We do not need to confer citizen status on invaders, ever!

    Remember too, Art IV section 4 requires the federal government to protect each of the States from invasion. It matters little that the invader is not in full battle dress, mounting an armed assault. When the invader crosses the border uninvited, he is just that, an invader, much like ants in your pantry.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      lonesomedove,
      hate to break it to you, but that is hardly what the Mex president meant! he meant that the mexicans have the right to go where they damn well please regardless of border or laws!! He is damn well WRONG!!!

  • JC

    Obama has already shown his true colors on Border Control.
    The man is an anti-American who is working very hard to destroy this great nation and turn into just another global province.

    • Thamera

      And then jokes about it on top of everything else. He is a disgrace to the office and a disgrace to every hard-working, law-abiding American citizen.

  • Rennie

    I guess the theory is we need third world immigrants to teach us how to survive in a third world economy? The USA can not do what it needs to do, to protect us, keep us in our homes or employment or medical services, why is anyone so stupid as to think it’s okay to bring in massive amounts of immigrants just to buy their votes in the next election? This is not a melting pot, it’s a pressure cooker, especially when large segments of the population make it clear they are not here to assimilate, rather to take over. It is going to get ugly, and the chaos caused by politicians will be used as an excuse for even more police state powers. We don’t need a HIGHER fence Mr. President, we need “A” fence. We don’t need a moat with alligators, we need a line of TSA gropers and require passport applications like they now expect US citizens to fill out. This government does not work for us, we must work to restore our country, Nov. 2012 is just a first step.

  • Charles

    Obama!!! Obama !!!
    This man thinks we are all stupid like the people that voted for him
    and put him in office. He keeps telling us how how he has beefed up
    and hired more border agents and how he has slowed the people
    comming across the border. He even makes the smart ass remark of putting a moat with a gator in it along the border. So far, he hasn`t
    done a damn thing in securing our borders. He has sued Arizona because
    they want to do the job he refuses to do. It amazes me that we can close the border between North and South Korea, but we can`t secure our own border. I don`t care what it takes, even if it takes the whole
    military,close the borders and start sending back the illigals, even if it takes the next 10 years to do it.All this Communist President is
    doing is looking for more dumb ass people to vote for him. He cares
    nothing about what happens to America. The only thing he cares about is that he is head of it. He hopes that he is re-electd in 2012 and then he can bring America to it`s knees.He then can step in and become
    President for life hopping that things will be so bad that no one will
    resist him. The constitution will be gone forever. The transformation
    of America will be complete.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Charles,
      nobummer keeps talking about the higher number of illegals caught in the last two years. When you have twice as many illegals coming into the country, it’s easier to catch more by ACCIDENT!!!

  • Doug Rodrigues

    The Federal Government has failed to protect this country from invaders from the south. Worse than that, the Federal Government encourages illegal immigration from Mexico by providing incentives in the form of welfare, paying for Emergency Room visits used for routine health care, public education for students of illegals who hate this country and march waving Mexican flags, Mexican criminals making up 30% of our prison populations, low cost Government housing, and on and on. The Federal Government is demonstratingly run by bureaucrats who can only be accurately described as idiots! It is totally out-of-control ! One way to reverse this insanity is to vote out every last “professional” politician in Congress and the Senate! They created this problem. Get rid of them!

    • (WIA) Wild Indian in Action

      Doug Rodrigues, Perhaps you are not aware of Tucson Unified School District, The issues surrounding the mexican ethnic studies program, these students are a living proof of the communist la raza infiltration of the school system, instilling anti-white, anti-American propaganda and treason, just the tip of the iceberg. Consider that the Arizona capitol of communism is Tucson, Arizona in Pima county, and it endorses congressman democrat Grijalva and congressman democrat Pastor and well as most all democrats. A sanctuary for illegals and a central distribution for illegals and drugs. The University of Arizona Tucson, Az. is a hot bed for this type of communistic entities, All of you need to do your own research the truth will set you free.

      • Thor

        Makes you wonder why Tusonians are not exercising their 2nd Amendment rights…don’t it? Jefferson said the right to bear arms was there to protect the people from tyrannical government. He did not say what level of government. Seems local government in Tuson could use a bit of insurrectional cleansing.

        • Al Sieber

          Thor, the same thing is happening in N.W. Arizona, Mohave Co., the people are mad here and are taking back the local Govt.

      • Al Sieber

        (WIA), I know exactly what you’re talking about, I’ve done the research on that subject, living in Ariz. I hear a lot about it. I hate La Raza, it means the race in Spanish, everything for the race, and nothing outside the race. so who’s the Racist’s?, they are. sounds like the Nazi’s.

  • 2CentsWorth

    The politicians will need to build themselves some tall and strong fences and put moats and alligators around themselves, if they think they can trample on true Americans the way they are. That will keep the immigrants out of their way. Don’t let “them” destroy America, but let us train our children about the true America, and what our forefathers before us have done to resist tyranny, and again make America a great nation. The dumbing down of the population through the “public” schools, and hollywood is not needed. Throw your black “spy” boxes in the trash, and you TV also. No brainwashing wanted or needed!

  • MN

    If the Border sooo safe lets move all Politicians to the Border. Heck lets move DC to the border. I bet it changes then!

  • http://com i41

    Onumnutts whining about putting alligators at the border, what is the bastard tring to do create an Olyompic swimming teams of illegal beaners and sand n—er muslims. Best way to stp this crap from going on is to let the illegals get in about 20 miles and start dropping the hammers on the front and back of the group, and work towards the opposite end. Dig a ditch throw the trash in and some mesquite to get a hot fire and back fill. Since these fence crawlers don’t have any respect for private property I guess private land owners need to secure their own property, taxpayers should start cleaning scum out of our government owned land doing the same thing. Onumnutts doesn’t want any type of immagration program but to let all s–t birds crimminal to be able to come here with out any impedements.

  • chuckb

    barrys immigration plan calls for all illegals to register and receive a naturalization card then proceed to other steps for amnesty and citizenship. the problem being once these illegals get the card then they can get a drivers license and thanks to the voter motor registration law, we can thank mr. bill clinton for, they will be eligible to vote.
    that’s what barry is after. pass this immigration bill and we get barry for another four years.

  • cae

    As independents my family and I consider this the number one problem of our country as it is a major cause of unemployed citizens, foreclosures, states going broke, drugs and criminals entering our country each and everyday and a known major but ignored terrorist threat so we will be closely looking at the voting records of all candidates for all offices in 2012 and voting Against anyone who supports those who broke our laws over our own citizens!

  • http://com i41

    The remaining few months before the election, push your states AG to prosecute employers who employ illegals. It will shake out a lot of worthless pukes who are in love in being PCed. Same goes for the govonors and any elected smuck including the fed elected jackwagons.

    I get ill every time I hear, or see the statement that they only want a better life. Well every time they say that crap I say think of some American child living in poverty in this country who is a citizen, or legal immigrant who is also wanting a better life that this country promised us some 235 years ago. When the founders choose to fight the yoke of oppression. At that time a contract was written a contract with the people who were here, and those who were yet to come, those who would abide by the rules of that contract that US Constitution that we live by at least those that obey the laws of this country live by, but it seems that the current president See’s himself above the citizens of this wonderful United States Of America. In 2012 send this ass back to where ever he really came from (Chicago, or Kenya) I care not, but stop the systematic destruction of America.

  • Brittanicus

    In England Conservative Ian Duncan Hunter stated “there was a link to the other political parties open door policy and rising levels of poverty among low-paid workers, with thousands more people who were chasing jobs.” The Work and Pension Secretary named immigration as one of the causes of rising distress among low-skilled. In the latest official breakdown it showed working age adult poverty in the United Kingdom had reached its highest level in 50 years. Currently in the United States this situation is having comparable consequences on the lower working class, and poverty has sky rocketed in the past twenty years. This is mainly through unfettered illegal immigration adding to the already congested cities and communities. In the 2009 American Community Survey.(ACS). Presented poverty estimates based on data from the 2008 through 2009. There is an almost certain guarantee that States that don’t pass policing laws, they will become the target as California and Nevada and now Utah for illegal aliens. Whereas States as with Georgia whose Governormay sign into law a policing law to protect his people from further financial abuse.

    In a US Census report of Sept 16, 2010, the number of people in poverty increased to 42.9 million. Thirty-one states saw increases in both the number and percentage of people in poverty between the 2008 and the 2009. To me this means America is importing poverty, through porous borders and visa overstays with no end in sight. The only salvation America has now from the illegal immigrant invasion is to join your States local tea party. Tens of millions of Americans and legal residents are becoming members. The TEA PARTY will sever the IRS from stealing your taxes, to pay for welfare and social programs for illegal aliens. In the past thirty years it’s the majority of economic illegal immigrants coming here, stealing jobs and lowering the quality of your lives. In the 19th century those who came through Ellis Island kissed the ground, celebrating the extent of their liberty, expecting no welfare from the government.

    The new illegal immigrants are–ECONOMICAL–pouring through the thousands of miles of uncontrolled border, already aware by relatives that they can get public services, many already armed with forged documents. Once settled $40 billion plus a year in illegal labor is money transfers to foreign banks, to support families abroad.113 Billion dollars in federal education and other programs according to Federation of American Immigration Reform. Then the US Government estimates 40 percent of illegal newcomers arrive by aircraft or other ports of entry. State welfare programs are not exempt, from being flooded by illegal alien households, specially the new consistent arrivals with pregnant mothers. They already are well versed that once they reach American soil, the misinterpreted law of the 14th Amendment gives their baby instant citizenship, no matter their illegal status of the parents. That the more children they conceive, the more public entitlements they can appropriate. Beginning with the first child born whose Mother is uninsured that the US taxpayers assume the financial burden. FAIR estimates there are about 363,000 children born to illegal aliens annually.

    In a US Census report these are statistics researched: In Arizona illegal immigrant population is costing the state’s taxpayers about $1.3 billion per year for education, medical care and prison costs. The fiscal costs of illegal immigration do not end with these three major cost items. The total costs of illegal alien to the state’s taxpayers would be considerably higher if other costs such as special English instruction, school nutrition programs, or welfare benefits for American workers displaced by illegal alien workers were added into the equation. Arizona annual fiscal yoke amounts to more than $700 per households. Is it no wonder they are trying to build their own set of immigration laws, to protect its residents? Californian taxpayers likewise pay more than $10.5 billion per year for education, medical care and imprisonment.. In teaching children with limited English proficiency the state of Nevada has $722 million per year in expenditures. In Texas’s illegal immigrant population is costing the state’s taxpayers more than $4.7 billion per year for education, medical care and incarceration. With New York the current fiscal outlays for the illegal alien population are now approaching $8.4 billion annually.

    These statistics are just an example of the outrageous costs of illegal immigration, which was current up to 2009. It’s now up to the man and women in the street to stop this travesty; to join the TEA PARTY. Around the country are thousands of branches, with thousands of moderate Conservative unaligned voters people for you to join. This is financial survival for us all, as neither major party have any serious intentions to construct the 2006 Secure Fence, according to that bill. If neither party has implemented any solid evidence of enforcing the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli bill, it does obviously nothing will be accomplished now. What is happening is importing wholesale poverty that has far reaching effects. There is room for highly qualified engineers, scientist and professionals with honored credentials. But this government and the previous administrations, have intentional disregarded the people’s interests. For future votes and discount workers.

    We need a president that is not pandering to majority ethnic groups and will begin repatriation through enforcement. A large portion of population of Hispanics are adverse to Obama’s laws as it hinders job seekers and causes mass apprehension from being wrongly blamed for the invasion.With such policing programs as E-Verify to identify illegal workers and Secure Communities to process fingerprints of individuals that can be identified through ICE data bases and held for the agents.The party platform on illegal immigration is solidly emplace, is no Sanctuary Cities or States, no Dream Acts with Chain Migration that adds to the population explosion. There will be no passage of any kind of Immigration reform, that is a stealth substitute for AMNESTY. All those politicians along with Governors, Mayors and official will not be reinstated, including Tea Party lawmakers who wander away from the major dictum of the TEA PARTY and its growing following. Also available is instant contact with Senate—202-224–3121/ House—202-225–3121 Other resources that research the illegal immigration is the pro-sovereignty web site of NumbersUSA.

    First visit to Ground Zero?

    First bisit to the SW Border?

    YES, it’s campaign season……..I would say “again” by this chump has never quit compaigning since before his election…….all he knows how to do, leading stumps him, at best.

    Obama’s after all those Democrat voters, legal or not, just like Bush was after all that cheap labor.

    Neither have the personal integrity and honesty to admit that for either purpose, vote or labor, illegals take away from Americans.

    Go to http://www.numbersusa.ORG to see why unbridled immigration, whether legal or not, cannot be sustained.

  • rollin

    Arghhhhhhh.

    Visit, not bisit, you know what I mean.

    “again” but……. rather than “again” by.

  • Julian

    NO enough said. We have tried amnesty twice and twice lived with the negative results. One yes screws the country but we have to say no two and three times a year.

  • Julian

    Now that I think about it a few years ago they were told close the border first and then you can have your amnesty and they did nothing. They have no intention of ever closing the border for amnesty or anything else.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Julian,
      No, if you are talking about Bush2, then they were told that if they passed amnesty, we were gonna kick their assets out of their jobs and vote in new people across the board!!! Reps and congressmen were recieving over 5 to 15 thousand letters, phone calls and e-mails a day!!! There were some that said they can’t tell me what to do, but it didn’t pass!!!

  • rae

    as usual the government is making a very easy problem, difficult and complatataed. Border control is easy and all it requires is our armed forces protect it like they do so many other things. Give them live ammo, gurad dogs, and permission to use both…it will cut down and probaly even stop the incoming. I have no problem with people coming into our country following the rules but not when they sneak in. If their own country is so bad and they can’t get a job the change that country, make it better for yourselves. In all my history studies, I do not recall one person or country that gave us our rights….we had to fight for them….well people from Mexico, maybe thats what you need to do in Mexico….fight for your rights

    Control would be easy but where would the dumbocrap party get new recruits, since te marxist/communist socialist are gathering idoits who come from 3rd world s–t holes. All dumbocraps are phony and crimminals who just haven’t be prosecuted. Onumnutts and alll of the crimminal tax cheats who have walk is just another prime example.

    Strong Border Control??? is that what he means by Controlling Border agents and Telling them not to arrest illegals???
    This admin hasnt been deporting them, they are slapping them on the hands and allowing them to roam freely in the USA. Barack’s lips are flapping again, and that means he’s full of hot air, B.S.
    Immigration Reform, simply means He’s met with hispanic actors and some hispanic group leaders and they are calling it reform, when it’s really Amnesty. Any Hispanic American who loves this country, Would be Pushing for Legal Immigration, and nothing else.
