Obama Calls For Federal Immigration Reform, Asks For GOP Support

July 6, 2010 by  

Obama calls for federal immigration reform, asks for GOP support  With Arizona’s new immigration law less than 30 days away from being enacted, President Obama called out Republicans last week, pressuring them to help congressional Democrats develop a comprehensive immigration reform strategy.

"Reform that brings accountability to our immigration system cannot pass without Republican votes," Obama said during his speech at American University. "That is the political and mathematical reality."

The president noted that any further delay in Congressional action would result in a "patchwork" system where individual states create their own laws. Obama again condemned Arizona’s recently passed immigration bill, which he described as an "ill-conceived" measure that has the potential to violate "the rights of innocent American citizens and legal residents."

He added that the law—scheduled to be enacted at the end July—will drive a wedge between law enforcement personnel and the Hispanic community, creating more dangerous communities.

In response to Obama’s speech, Republican leaders said the administration needs to properly secure the border before calling on Congress to pass a Federal reform bill.

"In calling for a massive overhaul of immigration law, the administration is putting the cart before the horse," said Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah). "When the house is on fire, you don’t try to fix the plumbing."

"Rather than playing politics with the issue, the administration should listen to the American people and secure the border," he added.

Obama was recently criticized by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Texas Governor Rick Perry for only deploying 1,200 National Guard troops to help improve border security. Brewer and Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) asked for a minimum of 6,000 troops.

    Why is no one calling for the simple and just solution?
    First, put as many people as are needed to secure the border – it is not just an immigration issue now, it is a DEA law enforcement issue. Second, deport illegal aliens, tell them immigration starts at the end of the line at their nearest US consular office.

    • JC

      Because the Keynesian monetary system needs an ever increasing taxpayer base to keep going. Money is no longer valued by precious metal or any other commodity, save for slave labor. Your labor.
      And when your labor no longer accounts for the tax/spend tax/spend tax/spend ways of our completely irresponsible government, they need new slaves to make up the difference.
      You see without these new slaves our Federal Reserve would soon be shown for the farce that it is.

      • BrotherPatriot

        Once again, JC…well said. However I have a correction for your final sentence…it should read…

        “You see without these new slaves our Federal Reserve *is being* shown for the farce that it is.”

        :oD

        THEY really are getting nervous…because the herd (us) has now turned and are looking at them. (I don’t know about you but I’m discusted by what I see.)

    • Airangel

      A clear and present danger. They don’t want Amnesty, they want the USA

      http://www.mexica-movement.org

      We have to stop this nonsense or they will run America into the ground with their lack of ethics and disregard for laws!

      • eddie47d

        Most of what I read says this is a Native American movement and has extremly little to do with the present immigration issue. We took their land and they want it back.That will never happen but at least they have a right to bring this issue up. Would you demand or ask for something that someone stole from you?

        • independant thinker

          eddie………….your reference is the only place I have seen this please provide some sources my Creek Indian friends would be very interested.

      • Marie

        They already have. They should get one thing and one thing only. Deportation. Mexico is to the south now go home and fix your own country. Take the anchors too, including that pos that we call Obama.

    • ashforkdan

      How is it that they all know how many illegals are here but there isn’t any problem with the border. lets round them up and make them build the fence. if they know how many mexicans crossed then i would really like to know how many hamas / yemens/ pakastanies/ chineese /north koreans /afganies /iragies you get the picture all of his broes have been crossing every day but nothing is being said about the sleeper cells there the real problem its only a matter of national security and they refuse to reconize it for what reason maybe they need another attack on US soil so they can take more of your rights away all that is needed to declare marshal law is an attack again and congress will be dimissed for a period of six months and barry becomes a dictator and makes all the rules that he cant pass now

  • Robin from Arcadia, IN

    If the Federal government was doing it’s job, the states wouldn’t have to! I support Jan Brewer and any other governor who steps up to the plate and does what needs to be done! I hope an immigration bill for reform is not passed until the boarder is secured. What good would it do? Illegals need to be deported! They are not given the status of illegal because they immigrated the correct way! They are breaking our laws! This has to end! There is a right way and a wrong way. I hope Washington doesn’t cave on this and allow a mass amnesty. That is exactly what we don’t need!

    • William

      Robin you are right. if the federal government did their job their would be no problem. but when you have a bunch of IDIOTS in washington and in some state governments who can only think of more votes for the democratic party that’s what you get, they are all in violation of the oath of office they took when they were elected. to protect america from all enemys from without and WITHIN. they are not conserned with security. only votes. ther are an awful lot of terrorrist’s comeing through the open borders we now have thanks to the RIFF RAFF we now have in washington. what we need is

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy

      Obama claims that the Arizona Law will create more dangerous communities, but if he really wants to see what a dangerous community looks like, all he has to do is visit one of the ‘Amnesty Cities’ located all over the U.S. These cities’ crime rates are more than double those of any other city in each of their respective states. If the ‘Federal Government’ had done their job in the first place, instead of abrogating their responsibilities, the people of Arizona, as well as the rest of the U.S., would all live in safer communities. The only way to truly rectify this entire situation is to secure the borders, round up all illegal aliens and deport them. If amnesty is given, it will destroy this country, its people, and its future. The only way that any of this is going to come about is if there is a tremendous out-cry by the American people to let their Congressmen and Senators know just how outraged they are and how they want it resolved and making sure their representatives know that they are American citizens. If these high paid representatives of ours had to live in the same areas and in the vicinity of these illegal aliens, I guarantee this problem would have been solved a long time ago, for they would not stand for such a high crime rate where they live. Instead of blogging your dissatisfaction, everyone needs to call their representatives and let them know what you are reading on these blog sites and how you feel about this problem, for that’s the only thing that’s going to inspire any action to be taken by them.

      • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy

        This problem is really a long planned out process by the Democrats to ensure they stay in power by creating more of them through immigration, for they know the people already here sees the true problems the U.S. has and know the corrective measures to take to rectify them, but new citizens only know who gives them handouts so they have an easier way to live. Hence, more Democrats! Thats the true problem, the country is going broke because of all the handouts.

  • http://n/a Eve

    We all need to pass the same law that Arizona did……the federal government with this present admin is not going to protect Americans……….and impeach this little band of merry men/women now in the white house. Take American back in 2010 & 2012 How dare they treat legal migrants who for years have done the correct thing! They are worse then spitting on these people…..they’re the ones who need to rally!!! God help us all

    • charlie

      inforce the law’s on the book’s we already have.. fine the company’s the 10.000.00 dollars per person that should’nt be here.. do like the rest of the world, shoot those that cross the border.. end of problem

  • Doc Sarvis

    Gosh, if we weren’t embroiled in two conflicts overseas we might have the required number of military personel to do this job. If we need to raise troop levels, gosh, I guess we will need to raise taxes. I don’t imagine folks on this site wanting to pay more taxes.

    • Bill

      We wouldn’t have to raise taxes if we got rid of the 12 – 20 million parasites that have invaded our great country. They are a drain on our society, our tax burden, our schools, our hospitals and our police. They contribute nothing but expect to be treated as if they do. The cost of rounding them up and shipping them out would by far be cheaper than what we are paying today. These undocumented Democrats need to be shown the boot and if they return, they need to be shown our prisons along with those that hire the illegals.
      Obama should be impeached for dereliction of his vows to uphold the Constitution, uphold and support our laws and protect this country from foreign invaders.
      As far as the wars are concerned, I would much rather have the fighting where we know the enemy is instead of the enemy coming to us for a fight!

      • William

        Bill you have said it better than anyone so far. and yes they should be giving prison time to those who are hiring these illegals. but if they did that some of their friends and some of them would be wearing prison garb. which would be the best thing that could happen,

        • steve

          sounds alot like Orwells 1984……

      • JCfromDC

        Undocumented Democrats? Good term. But let’s be “fair”. Bush I, didn’t doit, Clinton certainly didn’t and neither did Bush II (he even had an amnesty plan). Now Obama is saying, “let’s do something by doing, basically … nothing.” Now we can’t impeach them all… Wait! Why not? What an idea! They all have “assets”, even the big “O”!!! The Resolution Trust Fund could seize them and pay for the extra cost of National Guardsmen to choke the border. Any takers?
        Oh, yes… and adopt MEXICO’s Immigration Law here. It’s far more exclusive and punitive than ours, and that a**hole Calderon even VERIFED it in a CNN interview!

        • charlie

          the last 8 prez haven’t done anything about it.. and guess what .. they won’t….

      • http://yahoo rev gay

        excellent response—I agree wholehaeartedly!

      • eddie47d

        Bill and Wm.; You say they contribute nothing ,what garbage talk!They pick your fruits and vegtables,roof your house,clean our offices,drywall our homes,ect. You just don’t value hard work or even respect those who do. When you get out into the fields and pick hundreds of tomatoes for an honest days work then we’ll talk. Your prison talk;what nonsense,we can’t even afford our high incarceration rate as it is.

        • Marie

          Less than 2% of crops are picked by hand. IF these jobs paid a LIVING wage (not under the table) Americans would have jobs. If they clean your house or do your landscaping then you are a contributing factor to the problem of illegals. There was a time they picked the crops and went HOME, now they never LEAVE. Even going to McDonalds etc anymore you need to know spanish to order, the jobs no longer go to teenagers because of state and federal work laws. So it has finally gotten to the point people are waking up and seeing the US gov’t has not done it’s job to keep this country safe. There will be no more amnesties. Deportation is the only way to make sure we know just WHO is in this country.

        • class action

          All good craftsmen ship was lost to crappy labor and now you have homes crappy none craft crap thinking because they have a belt and a bag with nails and a tape and a saw that they are carpenters..its so bad they at the mills they have to put the walls together and number them like a school yard game, and they cant even use a level to plum the walls windows doors pony walls..Back in my day they drop the unit package off and you laid out your outside walls and then your inside walls.I used a 28oz framing hammer and 16 penny nails..yes you get unskilled labor you get you get shitty workmen ship.But boy they can sure work the fields.

          Once again Obama DID NOT create the immigration problem although 90% of you try desperately to pin it on him. What the hell has he done to fix it.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          Hey fool!,
          They DON’T roof my house, they DON’T clean my office and they DON’T dry wall my house as I won’t hire any contractor that employs anything but AMERICAN employees!! If I suspect they are not american citizens I will report them in a heart beat. I also watch how they act when my officer friend comes around. I mow my own lawn and enjoy it thank you. I do my own home repairs unless they are too big for me. I do my own wiring and have a friend of mine check it after I get done and I pay him. I try to be as self sufficient as I can. The people I hire are reputable and I know them. I might pay a little more, but I try not to be part of the problem!!

    • JC

      Or better yet Doc, let’s just get un-embroiled in overseas conflicts.

        JC, I agree with that 100%.

        • JC

          TIME I think a lot more people would agree if they looked at the history…the “real” history behind too many of America’s foreign wars. Sadly though we’re lead down the garden path by propoganda for the most part.

          • BrotherPatriot

            Yep…I agree. Since we now know that we have wolves in the hen house, I think we should pull most all military forces back until we sort ourselves out. It’s obvious that something major is goin down within the body of America itself. Not a good time to wave a gun around…by a sick nation infected by the Virus of the Bilderberg & their allies equation.

            I’m so angry that my elected representatives of the American Governement has gone to these secret, behind closed doors meetings where they set policy. They try to deny that they set policy while saying that they made the UN and the Euro. <—Every once in awhile they get caught in their lies.

    • charlie

      plenty of people would love to go to the border and stop this. but the goverment will jail them before they jail the people crossing the border.. look at that farmer that protected his land.. the goverment gave the land to the illegal’s that came across his land. just because he shot at them,after being shot at..

      • Airangel

        exactly Charlie…they are already jailing or arresting anyone caught trying to take Gulf Oil spill pictures and trying to write any article…so much for freedom of the press or freedom of speech or freedom to rome around seeing for yourself how bad it is!

        • eddie47d

          Airangel you’ve lost it! The oil spill is in the news 24/7 radio,TV.newspapers.How can we have so much reporting if they are being arrested?

          • IndyPatriot

            How can the Gulf be covered “24/7″ and people be jailed? Easy. They only allow “approved” reporters. Airangel obviously listens to and watches more than just the big three, CNN, Fox, etc. Though admittedly I would tend to lean a bit more on Fox, if I had the chance (I do not have cable or satellite.)

          • eddie47d

            I’ll answer myself, Just read another blog site and it said it’s BP’s employees stopping folks from taking pictures. Well I guesss corporations can do that.

      The two wars we are engaged in would be solved in nothing flat if the coward in chief would get up off his rear end and LEAD! But, that is something he is incapable of doing! We should also bring home the soldiers and Marines from Sout Korea, Okinawa, Japan, Germany and any other place on the planet! We are engaged in a war for our very survival, and very few politicians understand that! In particular those who control washington, D.C. Too bad the word can no longer be capitalized because of the cowards in the white house and congress! They are all entitled to small letters only! They are not Americans! They are traitors of the first water, and should be treated as such!

  • http://n/a Eve

    Well Gosh, we’re going to be paying more taxes, to pay for obamas “pet illegals” get real!

  • M.L.

    aside from all the other issues on illegals, when my father came to the U.S. the scrutiny of each and every person from desease, criminal backround checks as well as the ability to work and contribute immediately to the American system English must be spoken, there were no signs in anyone’s language to guide them. from WW11 immigrants turned to night school classes, that they paid for themselves to improve their english language skills in order to be best prepared for the American jobs they hoped to obtain. They worked hard (no handouts) to proudly to become a part of the American way. Waiting on lines (outside the country) allowed many of them to learn enough English to start their new lives. It is not that the Mexicans cannot learn English, especially since both our countries have been crossing the borders for much more than a century, but simply because they don’t want to. Why? because LaRaza, Lulac and other organizations tell them they will be running this country therefore like Oboma says “don’t worry about them speaking English, you should be teaching your children Spanish.” Who gave him permission to give away our country? Give them amnesty, no health checks, no criminal checks, and the jobs AMERICANS WANT.

Ariz. they have taken over some of our parks and wild life refuges. It seems like Obama is trying some kind of experiment on the people of Ariz. pushing us until we snap. these drug cartels are composed of very violent people who would even torture and murder women and children.

    • Lee

      What Obama plans on doing is throwing Arizona to the wolves because it dared to stand up against him! He has absolutely NO plans to help Arizona or any other state that dares to question his “brilliance” on amnesty or cowtowing to other countries! As one headline I saw this morning said, “While Obama bows and scrapes, the Saudi king laughs—” Why shouldn’t the king laugh?

    Barry the puppet plays politics, as ObamaDaCommi seeks to secure votes for the dictatorship he is planning.

    1. Close and secure Border with American soldiers.
    2. Eject illegals that have commited crimes in America.
    3. Give the remaining decent hard working illegal immagrants a path to citizenship
    A. pay a fine
    B. learn english
    c. join the American culture, and become real Americans NOT latino-American.
    4. Revise work visa system and enforce it.

    • http://4billblack@earthlink.net Bill Black

      FF,

      You have as requirement A/ “Pay a fine”. Obama’s says “pay some “back taxes”.
      I’m afraid we’re setting ourselves up for another ‘easy passage’ bill on a 50/50 vote claiming, as they did with Obamacare, that it will reduce deficits!
      QUESTION- How does a group of people (illegals) making minimum wage or less afford back taxes and a fine?
      ANSWER- They can’t and won’t! So let’s stop the nonsensical talk
      now. Too much of it has already led to bad bills by our current ‘loosey-goosey’ Administration and Congress. (“You’ll find out
      what’s in the Bill when we pass the Bill!”)

        You hit that one square on the head dude. Good post.

      freedom fighter,i agree with everthing but giving them citizenship,NO WAY! can you imagine what that would do to all of our welfare systems,our schools,our social security.15-20 million people that never paid a penny into the system is now eligible for all of it’s benefits.besides,make them citizens,that millions of votes for obama!

    • George E.

      FreedomFighter,

      Good post. I’m sympathetic with your views. However, I don’t think we should ever give citizenship to anyone found in this country illegally. To do so is just a reward for breaking our laws, and that will only encourage more to do the same. Don’t let those pushing “comprehensive” immigration reform or “amnesty” convince you that we can’t deport illegal immigrants because it’s not practical or humane, so the only option is to give them US citizenship to make them legal. Personally, I don’t think that’s the case, but if we do agree that it is not practical to deport them, then there is another option. We can always give them a visa (green card) to allow them to stay in the US to work and live so long as they obey our laws, but don’t give them the rights of a US citizen (vote, some social benefits, etc.).

      Regarding those illegal immigrants who have committed “other” crimes in the US, I think we should make them pay for their crime (prison, etc.) before being deported. Especially for this group, I would NEVER grant them US citizenship. Keep in mind that US citizens who commit felonies and serve time in prison are denied the vote, so why should we give illegal immigrants who commit felonies in the USA the right to vote with citizenship through an amnesty program?

    • BrotherPatriot

      Your post made me scream out in JOY! Well said and I have been thinking the same thing…and guess what our common demoninator is…?

      Common Sense.

      Apply common sense & watch sooo much of the crap just wash away. I think I mention this on a different topic in comment sections. Hrmmph…go figure. Makes perfect sense though, huh?

      • BrotherPatriot

        Oh, and definitely don’t give citizenship to any illegals. Simply deport them with having them pay for their crimes first before deportation.

  • http://personalliberty rob

    NOT dealing with the “ILLEGAL” immigration issue is/has been an agenda for Repub. and Dems. for years. Their agenda has NOW become an issue/problem of the “LEGAL” citizens of this country. It’s just that the problem cannot be hidden by politians anymore. Think about it…if it wasn’t an agenda…this “ILLEGAL” immigration issue wouldn’t be so HUGE. If the US “ILLEGAL” immigration is important to you, start making your candidates or elected officials accountable…put them to task and find out where they stand…WILL they represent………..”WE the PEOPLE”???……or be like the fox in the henhouse “John McCain”..???
    Be prepared people…AMNESTY is the political agenda for today.

  • independant thinker

    We definately need comprehensive immigration reform. Here is my reform plan.

    SECURE THE BORDER THEN ENFORCE THE EXISTING IMMIGRATION LAWS.

    If the feds would just do that it would be massive reform of the way illegal immigration has been handled for the last 20+ years.

        Time – while I agree with you, you know full well that some government agency will need to be formed, along with a special investigator, staff of hundreds and probably some grand jury to discover if a crime has been committed – and then, only then, might IT’s plan be utilized. Of course that would be following the plan already in place – hmmmm.

    It’s not that easy freedonfighter, these people have no intensions of leaving. The freebies became too inticing. You have to understand according to the Brookings institute as well as two others have already said we are overcrowded. That means the myriad of other nationalities with families waiting for the better part of 10-12 years outside the country will never come to be. And the melting pot of beautiful mix of people working and living side by side will diminish. Have you not noticed we are already turnig Latin American? Just look at the signs, the phone, the T.V.

    Look the first thing that needs to be done is to secure the borders. obama need to be the President of the United States. That means you are here for Americans not Muslims, Mexicans, not the Middle East. You wont even creat jobs for Americans but you can give jobs to the illegal aliens. You are not a President you are a tirent that is trying to destroy America. Resign and go back to your muslim friends.

    Grab your vomit bags, folks. The Anointed One is doing his schtick again. Pass the pepto. Mr. Transparency is flapping his mouth again.
    Obviously, Motormouth Biden’s alter ego has no plans for acting on so-called immigration reform.
    Just like Ted [one more scotch] Kennedy, this is a dead issue – unless it means easy votes for criminals. One must have one’s ‘standards.’
    It makes sense in a way. After all, dead voters aren’t that reliable (unless they’re planted in Chicago), especially when it’s obvious that it’s so easy to get nonexistent voters registered and see to it that they get to the polls on time.
    Kennedy farted around for over 30 years on this non-topic. Washington’s rockhead progressives are merely imitating Old Ted. Talk is cheap, and progressives and their ‘ethics’ are even cheaper.

    Let us do the best and easiest thing that we can line our reserve troops up on the Mexican border and march south when the whole of Mexico is a Military protectorate then enforce the laws on the land there and make life better for all the people there increase our natural resources work force and land holdings. Allow them to petition for acceptance into the nation as a state when they met set criteria just like in the days gone by. We control the police forces the government is made into a republic we help them manage their debits and build schools and infrastructural advances better roads hospitals communication it becomes a win win for both nations and solves a problem as old as our nation

    President Obama is holding border security hostage to use as a wedge for passage of immigration reform at the expense of many American lives in the process. If you have a relative or a friend or know of someone who has or has had drug problems, maybe you can understand what this illegal immigrant traffic is bringing into the country with millions of pounds of marijuana and hard drugs into our country at the behest of the drug cartels and in some cases with the cooperation of their corrupted mexican police. One illegal immigrant packing a load of heroin or crack is bringing in enough poison to kill hundreds of American citizens who are addicted and usually commit criminal acts to perpetuate their habit. Obama could be impeached for this irresponsible reaction to ignore the crisis at the border to use as leverage for passage of legislation to help law breakers at the expense of American lives, but with a Democratically controlled House and Senate it would be a waste of time to expect justice to be done.

  • http://charter howe

    Given the fact that the Campaigner-in-chief fully supports open borders and giving amnesty to 30 million, yes you heard me right 30 million llegals or rather I mean 30 million undocumented democrats, just wait and see how the numbers go up when all the rocks are turned over and the illegals realize their welfare ticket will be punched as soon as they come out of the closet. The Senator Guitterez bill just introduced into the House of Representatives on immigration reform is a joke of the greatest magnitude. I hope you will show up at the polls with me on 2 Nov 2010 and vote every democrat out of office and don’t forget the Republican progressives like McCain, Graham, Snow and Collins who flip flop way too much on important legislation.

    no amnesty, for ever $1,00 a poor low wage worker legal or illegal makes it cost the tax payer $4.00 in taxes for food, housing schooling so if we deported the illegals and put there empoyers in jail,close borders and shoot to kill all drug dealers crossing are borders use the laws on the books now, talk is cheap so we need to put up or shut up vote all liberals and rinos out in nov befor we get 20 million illegal amnestyed democrat voters

  • Jim K.

    Muslim Obama interest in illegal immigation is only politizing to get Latino votes. Obama is turning a serious illegal immigraton problem into a political battleground using the blame game we have come to expect from him. Until the border is secured Obama’s political rehortic for immigration reform to gain amensty will defer serious efforts to resolve. With high unemployement and the largest Federal Government debt ever in the history of the United States Muslim Obama wants to grant amensty to 12 to 20 million illegals making serious problems worse. Time for the legal citizens of America to get Muslim Obama gone before more damage is done to our country.

  • Don Boyer

    Obama is not the least bit interested in closing our border with Mexico. I’m not sure anybody knows how many illegal aliens are already in America, but there are millions of them. Hoover, FDR and
    Truman sent them all home because of the Depression and WWII. Obama will push very hard to grant them all amnesty and automatic citizenship because he knows that is the only way he could be re-elected in 2012. He has been in office for 18 months and has brought America to its knees. We have a debt that we will never be able to repay. Obama is a contol freak. He wants to control our lives from the cradle to the grave.With the help of an idiotic Democrat controlled Congress, he has trampled our constitution several times. I really believe he is a Marxist Muslim.

    The government in Mexico must be gotten rid of. It is not working for the people, then it must be done away with.
    Then make Mexico a state where people can get decent jobs and build better homes. The people will want to stay home with their families. The employers of Old USA could hire Mexico people at the same wages the Old American of USA citizens are paid. Working at a job in old USA the people must learn English, this is dumb having all different languages that everyone has to learn. We have One creator to worship who gave us these languages was to scatter us over the lands. It is the language that people run from, not the person, once they can talk in same language they become good friends.

    The lawsuit is expected to be announced by Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano, a former Arizona governor.

    The lawsuit will argue that Arizona’s new measure requiring state and local police to question and possibly arrest illegal immigrants during the enforcement of other laws, like traffic stops, usurps federal authority.

    machine gun nests, and good old flamethrowers. Why? not because
    I hate Mexicans, but because Drug-Cartel people need to know we
    mean business. They are invading OUR country!
    3. A law stating no babies from ILLEGALS born on our side get
    benefits. We don’t reward lawbreakers – no way, no how!
    4. Tell all congressmen and government officials that if they will
    not do their job in protecting and defending us, they not only do
    not get any more self-voted raises, but THEY go to jail.
    5. Any American officials, from the Pres. on down, that arrest any
    Americans for protecting themselves and their property, will be
    thrown over the border so the Mexican police can arrest THEM for
    illegal entry!
    I am dead serious! We Americans need to stand up in the faces of our elected officials and remind them WE THE PEOPLE are THIER bosses!! This is NOT being hot-headed and impractical.
    It has finally come to this. Many politicians think of themselves as royalty. Bull! There are several good ones, like Hatch, Gingrey, etc.

            Smilee,

            Obama has lost everyone except his base. Now he’s between a “rock and a hard place” with regard to winning more public support. If he moves right to win more independents and conservatives, he’ll lose the most energized part of his base. If he moves farther left to secure his base, he’ll start losing the moderate Democrats. Short of a miracle, Obama is now in the position of just trying to minimize Democrat loses in upcoming elections. It looks like the Democrats lost the independents when they forced through the recently passed health care reform law. They are viewed by the majority as highly partisan and playing up to their big money special interest support groups instead of looking out for the interests of the majority of American people.

            Looking out 5-10 years, we’re going to see our government run out of money and credit. (They will choke the economy with high tax rates and onerous regulations, so tax receipts will actually drop after an initial surge in the first year.) Having no other choice, they’ll start defaulting on their promises of hand-outs and safety nets to the American people, and that’s when people will learn their government can’t be trusted and these big government programs don’t work. The future doesn’t look all that bright for Liberal, Progressive, Socialist Democrats anytime soon. I predict Obama will be the last one for awhile.

          • Smilee

            His Base is less than 43% as was stated here so who are the other ones in that 43% if he only has his base and this is his job approval rating, his personal ratings are quite a bit higher and are more important when it comes to elections.

    Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution states the following:

    “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST INVASION, and on Application of the Legislature, or the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.” Caps are my emphasis.

    Republican Form of Government referred to is just that; a ‘form’ of government. In those days there were no Republican or Democrat parties. Reference was as to ‘form’ of government.

    The United States Government, by not protecting Arizona from ‘invasion’ or ‘domestic violence,’ is committing ‘non-feasance,’ i.e. “failure to do what duty requires to be done.” Of course it’s not just Arizona that is threatened. It’s all border States, and ‘domestic violence is occurring in most all our cities, in the form of illegal alien gangs such as the M-13

    Until harm is done to the Administration or their family, they just disgustingly don’t care!

    • Smilee

      Quite a stretch to call it an invasion or domestic violence, you are not at war with anyone that is still on the Mexican side of the border. Germany entering Poland was an invasion, domestic violence was what we saw in some cities in the sixties of which neither exists in AZ today, there is concern there but it is largely politics and the rhetoric is mostly supported propaganda by the far right radicals.

In all the TV reports I’ve seen I only see illegals carrying water jugs and the like. I have yet to see an actual video of a gun over someones shoulder as some would make it sound. There really is a problem… the pirated US economic system can no longer support even it’s own citizens while illegals are getting aid and the global elite laughing all the way to their banks while we all squabble over B.S. Now that’s a problem… but noooooo.. we’re gonna worry about some mexicans who for the most part have it a hell of a lot worse across the border than we do… but if we keep ignoring the REAL problem we may be trying to cross into mexico sometimes soon.

            The invasion has slowed in recent years because the economy here has slowed down. There aren’t as many jobs in the US for them now as there were when the economy was more robust. If you want to give Obama credit for the slowing invasion, then you’ve got to give him credit for slowing the US economy. I doubt that’s what you had in mind.

          • eddie47d

            Come on Samurai! So your family came to America long before Ellis Island was used to control immigrants. That must make them illegal,since most citizens before that time came in fairly easy and at many different ports. I’m not saying they had it easy but did they have their green card? You talk a good “deal” to. This country was founded by thousands and even millions who came here “illegally”. Legality shouldn’t be the overriding issue but keeping those out who don’t want to work (very few) and especially the gangs and drug runners. We need a safe well run nation and that’s where I agree on having a well guarded border.

        Another way would be to make it easy for migrant workers to get a visa (green card) to allow them to come into the country to work, and painful (for them and their employers or other accomplices) if they’re caught in the country illegally. That should go a long way toward taking away the incentive for the poor, honest workers to “swim the river” to get into the country illegally, unless they are in possession of illegal drugs, etc.

    Boasting a population that is 97% Hispanic, more than half foreign born, and 40% illegal, the Los Angeles County, Calif., incorporated city of Maywood has achieved the Reconquista goal. It is now as lawless and chaotic as any place in Mexico. Maywood is a warning to every city and town in America.

    The Maywood City Council announced this week that after years of radical policies, corruption and scandal, the city was broke and all city employees would be laid off and essential city services contracted out to neighboring cities or to L.A. County government.

    How did this happen? Until recently, Maywood was the model for “brown power” politics.

    Maywood was the first California city with an elected Hispanic City Council, one of the first “sanctuary” cities for illegal aliens, the first city to pass a resolution calling for a boycott of Arizona after that state passed a law to enforce federal immigration laws, the first California city to order its police department not to enforce state laws requiring drivers to have licenses to drive, the first American city to call on Congress to grant amnesty to all illegals.

    Council meetings were conducted in Spanish. Maywood was the leader in the peaceful, democratic achievement of the La Raza goal to take power in the U.S.

    In August 2006, a “Save Our State” anti-illegal immigration rally in Maywood drew hundreds of protesters, but a larger number of defenders of illegal immigration. The pro-illegal protesters carried signs which read “We are Indigenous! The ONLY owners of this Continent!” and “Racist Pilgrims Go Home” and “All Europeans are Illegal Here.”

    According to newspaper reports at the time, objectors to illegal aliens were subject to physical attacks. A 70-year-old man was “slashed,” a woman attacked, and cars vandalized. Pro-illegal demonstrators raised the Mexican flag at the U.S. Post Office.

    The illegal population and their sympathizers became increasingly radicalized. Elections to the City Council saw “assimilationist” incumbent Hispanic council members ousted by La Raza supporting radical challengers.

    For years, the Maywood City Council authorized police checkpoints to stop drunk driving. Drivers without licenses had their cars impounded. Illegals in California cannot get drivers licenses. By 2005, the number of such impounds were in the hundreds. A community campaign was launched forcing the City Council to suspend the checkpoints.

    Cars were still being impounded whenever a police traffic-violation stop resulted in a driver without a license. Felipe Aguirre, a community activist with Comite Pro-Uno, an “immigration service center,” coordinated a new campaign against any impounds. He was elected in 2005 to the City Council. He is the mayor of Maywood today.

    Aguirre and a new majority of the council dismantled the Traffic Department. Illegals were given overnight-parking permits and impounds stopped. You didn’t need a license to drive in Maywood. The Los Angeles Times wrote glowingly of this “progress” in a story entitled “Welcome to Maywood, Where Roads Open Up For Immigrants”.

    The Maywood Police Department was restructured by the new council. A new chief and new officers were hired. Later it turned out that many of the new officers had previously been fired from other law enforcement agencies for a variety of infractions. The Maywood P.D. was known as the “Department of Second Chances.”

    Among those hired was a former L.A. Sheriff’s deputy terminated for abusing jail inmates; a former LAPD officer fired for intimidating a witness; and an ex-Huntington Park officer charged with negligently discharging a handgun and driving drunk.

    Even the L.A. Times called the Maywood Police Department a “haven for misfit cops.” Their story alleged that a veteran officer was extorting sex from relatives of a criminal fugitive; that another officer tried to run over the president of the Maywood Police Commission; and that another officer has impregnated a teenage police-explorer scout.

    Charges of corruption and favoritism led to one recall of city council members and threats of more recalls are heard to this day.

    Maywood is represented in the state Senate by Democrat “One Bill” Gil Cedillo. He earned the nickname by introducing every year in the state legislature a bill to grant drivers licenses to illegals. Maywood is represented in Congress by Democrat Lucille Roybal-Allard, a staunch advocate of amnesty for illegals.

    Today, Maywood is broke. Its police department dismantled along with all other city departments and personnel. Only the city council remains and a city manager to manage the contracts with other agencies for city services in Maywood.

    Maywood is the warning of what happens when illegal immigrants, resisting assimilation as Americans, bring with their growing numbers the corruption and the radical politics of their home countries. Add the radical home-grown anti-Americanism of Hispanic “leaders” and groups like La Raza and you get schools where learning is replaced with indoctrination, business and jobs replaced by welfare and gangs, and a poisonous stew of entitlement politics.

    In too many American communities, this sad tale is all too familiar.

      Hmmm…a little bit of Mexico, disfuntional, corrupt, crime ridden, racist and a total welfare case…right there in LA County.
      Now that’s “progressive”.

    • eddie47d

      Airangel,That was a good post for all issues need to be brought up.

  • M.L.

    Airangel, you hit the nail on the head. Today the gov. will be in court to challenge Arizona. their reasoning is the Federal Government had the only right to interpet the law. In failure to protect Americans and disallowing the states to even try, our Mexican prone Gov. in essence is saying to Americans=”IF YOU DIE, YOU DIE” At least we will always have the vote. We need some real AQmericans to take our country back.

  • Airangel

    You all have time to post, so send your emails

    1. No Amnesty
    2. Secure the Border
    3. Deport Illegals
    4. Reiterate that the constitution does not allow anchor babies when both parents are from another country (then they fall in that countries jurisdiction)..meaning no anchor babies given citizenship
    5. Give border agents and National Guard empowerment to do their job

    Link to bombard this administration! http://www.whitehouse.gov/CONTACT

    You won’t get a response but this will let them feel the heat of the majority of Americans and where we stand and let them know we’re watching! I’ve sent several, one for Illegals, one for the Gulf, one on bailouts, one on Healthcare…pretty much everything I don’t agree with :)

    • Airangel

      oh and tell them also to stop wasting our tax dollars on a law suit against Arizona that we don’t want…this will be announced Thursday so hit em hard now!!!

      • Smilee

        If AZ law is found unconstitutional as many think it will be then that just means the Obama administration is standing up for the constitution as he is required to do and then it is money well spent as it is for protecting the constitution and that is extremely important

        • Airangel

          He is shredding the Constitution and the safety of American Citizens on SOOOOO MANY LEVELS! If he pardons Illegals (those illegally entering this country that routinely disregard our laws) he is in violation of the very Constitution he swore to uphold.

          If he truly cared for America and it’s citizens and its prosperity, he would not have waited until his hand was forced to act on Immigration

          He would have delt with the Gulf in the first week when most of the spill could have been contained before the disaster it is now, (he was offered help on day 3)!

          He would stand up to Felipe Calderon of Mexico whose laws are much stricter and Champion AZ and our Country to those that would trespass and violate our Rule of Law!

          He would not create a Healthcare bill that criminilizes Law Abiding citizens that don’t purchase Health Insurance… Sure, make it affordable to all but don’t FORCE those that don’t want it with a “Buy it OR ELSE” be fined or jailed!

          If He would lift all the tax regulations that are strangling businesses and forcing them overseas to countries like Singapore who have to tax burdens therefore it’s much, much cheaper to operate from there. He needs to not create hundreds of IRS jobs and increase competitiveness and manufacturing for American Businesses

          HE NEEDS TO FIGHT FOR AMERICA and then I might believe he cares about the Constitution!

          • eddie47d

            You need to sort out the truth first. Immigration has been an issue for decades. Did you beat up on Reagan,Clinton and Bush’s the same way you have gone after Obama? Obama was promised by BP that the situation was under control and BP would cover all costs.(can’t trust our corporations). On Healthcare,if everyone isn’t covered then it’s an even greater burden on all. The greater the pool the greater the coverage. The issue of jobs overseas;it’s cheap labor our corporations are going for not so much the tax issue. I guess we can say it’s a combination of everything not just one sided issues.

        • http://aol wayne a

          smilee,obama is making a mockery of our constitution! he is legally required to enforce our laws,secure our borders and protect America’s citizens which he hasn’t done.the law that Arz. passed is mirrored after the federal law which obama refuses to enforce! as of right now most experts thinks the challenge to Arz law will fail because it is so close to the federal law!

          • Smilee

            Both airangel and wayne are totally full of BS, neither have ever given one thing specifically that he has down that is unconstitutional just accusations that he is shedding the Constitution etc without one word as to how of course I doubt either of you have the foggiest what the constitution really is all about. You both are just filled with anger and dedicated to making Obama fail and will tell any lie if you think it will help in that agenda

          • airangel

Not Illegal Aliens and violations to American citizens as in rape, murder, vandalism, assault, theft, disease, etc…maybe you’re ok with that which makes you a traitor too!

        • independant thinker

          smilee……..If obama is standing up for the constitution he certainly has a funny way of showing it. He refuses to enforce the current immigration law (and do not bring up Bush I opposed his lack of enforcement as well as Clintons lack of enforcement). If he does not like Arizonas law then he should immediately call for the full enforcement of the federal immigration laws plus the sealing of our southern border.

  • Jim

    Many of the posters on this site simply like to rave on about something all of us know already. We need to take action! The present administration has not, nor will not secure anything. Not to mention the administrations preceeding. If we, as free people do not take action immediately, then they, the croanies of our government will make us bow….just like the healthcare bill. Talk is cheap, but action will signal these bastards in office. I for one am tired, and I’m not a armchair witness from the midwest. I live exactly one hour from Mexico in the hopefully, soon to be, soverign state of Arizona. Wake up people and smell the coffee. Let’s get our act together before it’s too late. Something must be done!!!! If you’re a tea partier, or a shooter….makes no differance….stand up for your rights, and quit wallowing in the so-called entitlements.

          The Constitution says that the government will secure our borders. It doesn’t; it doesn’t even follow its own laws either. So the states are forced to use the federal laws. What’s unConstitutional about that?

        • Claire

          Smilee– It appears Obama does want Amnesty for the illegals. Why? Perhaps votes? The crime rate is awful. Check the facts, most of the crimes have been committed by Mexicans in that area. Horrible crimes. America cannot afford to take care of everybody that wanders into the US. What about taking care of America and Americans first? What is WRONG with closing our borders? We are overpopulated now with illegals. I do not feel sorry for them. Americans need jobs, and these people waltz right in, make themselves at home and we have to take care of them. What is wrong with this picture???
          I have no compassion for these people anymore. I have more compassion for the people in the southern states that have to deal with this damn oil spill. I have more compassion for the loss of marine life and the birds and the environment than I do for illegals. The majority of the illegals want nothing more than a free ride and they are getting it. Personally, I do not want my tax dollars to go for their keep. I want my tax dollars to go to America and the legal residents of America. I want my tax dollars to go for proper education, infrastructure, roads, national parks, etc. We have to lay off firefighters, policemen, all states in the US are in a bind. Don’t you realize this? America should NOT have to continue to pay for illegals.

          • Claire

            I also do not approve of this law suit. Things could have been worked out through common sense and rationality. God forbid if common sense is ever used!! This tells me that this administration is seeking votes, it is a sham, and they are causing more dissent amongst Americans. What is the goal? The ruination of all that is good in America? To pit Americans against Americans? To create more havoc? Obama does not want to close the borders, neither does his co-horts. This is plain to see. It doesn’t take too many brains to figure out what is going on. For shame. It is disgusting.

          • Smilee

            I don’t agree with your saying Obama wants amnesty nor has he said that, Bush tried to do pretty much the same thing and it was said about him as well but it was no more true for him. Statistics on crime do not support your allegations either. There is a whole lot of misinformation being spread on this issue as has become so typical on so many issues with the far right wing propaganda mill. I am so sick of all the lies, and here if you tell the truth you are called a liar with no supporting evidence what so ever. SAD

          • Claire

            Smilee–If he doesn’t want amnesty, then why isn’t he closing the borders and sending the illegals back where they belong?

  • chuck b

    jim

    you are so right. barry has enough people that agrees with him and he is not going to give in to what the other half has demanded is demanding. i am very pessimistic about the upcoming elections, we are out numbered at the polls and even those democrats that can see whats going on will still pull the lever for the demos.
    just take a look at maywood, ca. this city is 95% mexican,(40%illegal) city employees were all mex. i say “were” because they had to fire all except the governing few. they have contracted with surrounding cities to police and fireman to maitain the city responsibilities. they took the city down with their mishandling and welfare. we are seeing this on the national level with this same kind of mentality. we have to eliminate this illegal problem, we cannot let barry soetoro destroy this nation just so he can gather 15-20 million votes and that’s exactly what he is up to.
    if i remember correctly at the time of the revolutionary war the majority of our people were against taking up arms against the british and if wasn’t for the minority we would still be under englands rule. so the time has come for the concerned people to stand up and demand the government to secure our borders and obey the laws of the country. so you say we need to get together and do something and just what do you mean by doing something?/ i write letters, email and phone to no avail. the repubs are almost as bad as the demos and i feel if the repubs had stood up for our laws before instead of pushing for amnesty (bush,lindsay graham and john mccain), this problem might have been solved earlier. the democratic congress will only give you amnesty not security, the vote is more important to them. it is time we all stand up for whats right, even though it may be too late. how do you demos like this change now??

      chuck:

      Keep in mind that CA is not representative of the rest of the country even though the politicians there like to say so.

      Check to see what other states are voting. Texas, for instance, used to be Democrat – now it’s hard to find any that will admit to it. The only races you can normally vote for in a primary on a Democrat ticket are those running for federal offices or the governor. There may be a couple of judges and a couple of state offices – or maybe not. No local offices at all. All of them are Republican.

      I think you can safely bet that most states will get rid of their Democrat people this fall – even if CA won’t.

    It can’t pass without Republican votes because too many Democratic Congressman won’t vote for it. But how can the Republicans be able to assist in meaningful “comprehensive immigration reform strategy” when they are told exactly what it is to be by Oblama and Pelousy?

    The only reason the border is NOT secured is because Oblama wants his amnesty to be passed as a ‘reform’. He hopes to force the Republicans to vote for it with a ‘promise’ to secure the border later. (How much later? That seems to be his favorite promise.)

    I – and most of American citizens INCLUDING most of the American Latin community – believes that before we do anything else we secure the border! Then we can get some assurances that whatever we do won’t attract more people here. The last amnesty did just that.

    Incidently, does anyone remember what happened on the last ‘amnesty’?

    Three million came forward and were awarded termporary work permits that they could renew. Less than 300,000 bothered to renew them. Why? Because all the rest were simply making some good money so they could return home and retire. They weren’t interested in becoming American citizens – despite what the politicians would like to believe.

  • ONTIME

    Ahhhhhh the Tar Baby awaits or is it the Tar Baby wants you to touch his proposal?

Anyone get the feeling they are going to burn him like a oil spill?

  • Da Norseman

    As far as immigration laws are concerned, the rights of each state is protected under the Tenth Amendment, whereas, border states like Arizona has the right to defend and protect our sovereignty, which they are doing in order to enforce current federal laws to stop the flow of illegal immigration that DC politicians are showing so little interest through ignorance or by just turning their backs because, are they afraid that they will get a lot of flack from human rights, amnesty or global groups for preventing immigrants from crossing our borders illegally, or is it that they wish to extend voting privileges to include (and bribe) those who are not U.S. citizens here legally or illegally in order to get reelected?

    It is typical Washington politics, regardless! Most have never carried out the promises voters expect them to do. If they are incapable of carrying out what they are there for, they should be removed by their constituents. The People!!!

            All right. Then prove it!!! You seem to be an intelligent sort. How would you define the word “truth”? Is it only the leftist propaganda you believe in? Keith Olbermann? Katie Couric? New York Times? (the biggest mainstream crap) Or are you afraid of hearing what may be the actual truth? I listen to both sides of the table, thank you, not just one. I have a broad mind. A narrow mind, which you may appear to have, only listens to one side and shuts out the other, because they don’t want to hear it.

    We neeed to start with a new law, the “FAIRNESS EQUALITY IMMIGRATION LAW” and it should state that illegal immigrants with be subject to a law equal to those of their home or origin. In other words, if the country they come from says all illegals will be exicuted, we execute them. What could be fairer???

  • airangel

    This is somewhat off the subject but we all need to send a message to this school in Florida. The History book they are using to teach has a cover of a mosque on the front and the text is somewhat biased on Anti-America…Muslims radicals are also invading us! We have until July 20th to make our voices heard….Wow, I feel like we’re fighting for America on every front!!! Please continue fighting! Why not Lincoln, Washington, The Revolution,…anything on American Text books besides a Mosque! It could have been one of the smaller photos!

      It’s a world history book not an American history book. We aren’t the only humans living on this earth.

    I PRAY THE NEWCONGRESS AND SENAT WILL CUT OFF FUNDING TO THE UNITED NATIONS, THEY COST TOO MUCH AND ARE WORTHLESS!

      Motimer, Rep. Ron Paul’s H.R. 1165 bill, if enacted, would withdraw the United States’ membership in the United Nations.

    THE GOVT HAS abrogated it’s duty to arizona and the taxpayers of america,which in my opinion is grounds for impeachment!

  • James

    The Arizona law just enforces current federal immigration laws. Aliens are required by that law to carry on their person the paperwork that authorized their entry and presence here. The Arizona law just applies that law to anyone in their state, who is stopped by police or patrolmen for other violations of state law. They simply asked the detained person to show their papers, and if they have no papers which establish citizenship or authorize their persence here then they are detained and deported.
    It’s quite obvious President Obama’s quarrel with Arizona is not about states enforcing federal immigration laws, which every state has the power and duty to do, it’s about sealing our borders which he opposes.

  • James

    All Arizona is doing is enforcing federal immigration laws. President Obama opposes that, he wants open borders.

  • eddie47d

    Once again Obama DID NOT create the immigration problem although 90% of you try desperately to pin it on him. Yes he has to fix another problem that previous administrations dropped the ball on. We have a Republic where we Democratically elect our officials. We should also expect some consenses from our politicians to correct the issues at hand. Republicans and Democrates working together. Opps! Not in your world. You want to keep the fires burning until the other side is destroyed. Don’t leave any rock unturned in your scorched earth views. Jan Brewer correctly demanded help from Washington and has gotten some (maybe it’s not enough).All states ask for aid for a variety of reasons and many requests are turned down. The trough is empty so the allocation of dollars isn’t a given. All states win and loose in that game. Problem solvers in business go to many sources before they move forward on a product or issue. Kicking out all these immigrants won’t solve the biggest part of the problem (Americans unwilling to work in the fields) Unless we can solve that issue then your spinning your wheels. Grandstanding on the crime and drug problem puts fear into the minds of alot of folks but doesn’t solve the bigger issues. Criminal activities are easy to solve; you arrest,jail and deport. Now get out in those fields and pick those cucumbers!

    • James

      Eddie47d, I have read no comment from anybody that blames President Obama for our illegal immigration problem. Our open-borders policy has been in vogue since the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Act, of 1994).

  • Palin12

    Another thing to consider before the November elections: the Bush tax cuts (so-called tax cuts for the rich by the liberals) are due to expire on Jan 1, 2011 unless renewed by congress. This is what the tax brackets will become:
    - The 10% bracket rises to an expanded 15%
    - The 25% bracket rises to 28%
    - The 28% bracket rises to 31%
    - The 33% bracket rises to 36%
    - The 35% bracket rises to 39.6%
    The “marriage penalty” and Death Taxes will also return.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Palin12,
      Wait, that can’t be true!! All the progressives said those cuts were for the rich!!!! If it’s just for the rich, then all those rates can’t go up!! Or maybe Smelly, edduh and all the others are WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!!!

  • bargal

    what is it this dumb mother trucker doesn’t understand??? We want the border closed before we allow any and every body to come in as if there is an open door policy. Obama, this is our country not yours exclusively. You prove that idiots can’t be trained and or understand the basic’s of self discipline

    All I know is that I pay far more taxes than Warren Buffet and I’m sure as hell not rich or anywhere close. Buffet pays 17.4%. I pay 30%. What the hell is up with that? Bush was a corrupt idiot and took care of his skull and bones buddies.

    Nate

    I agree with you. People need to get their heads out of their colon and make some waves in a very serious way. During the French revolution they made effective use of the gullotine. We should make a flag with one on it and display it for our corrupt representatives who are living the life of royality and excess at our expense. “The way to crush the middle class is to grind them between the millstone of taxation and inflation” Vladimir Lenin
