The following blog was published in December of 2010, when President Obama was trying to force his DREAM Act through Congress in a similar lame duck fashion that he is attempting to push his Executive Order granting amnesty to illegal aliens today. The President currently has a Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate, but not in the U.S. House. This majority was lost following the November 4, 2014 Election, and as a result, 9 seats in the Senate move to the Republican party. Despite an obvious mandate from the American public, the Republican Party seems afraid to confront the bully on his unilateral action on immigration. Why? Mainly so it doesn’t lose the Hispanic vote, which could be retained and increased, as discussed in the blog below.
Ironically, America is in the same position it was four years ago and the Republican Party has the upper hand, but seems reluctant to use it despite the mandate (see 40% Approve of Obama’s Immigration Plan) when all it has to do is do the right thing, appeal and talk to all segments of the population on their turf and expose the Obama Administration’s true agenda of purely pandering for votes! Interestingly, even the labor bosses are being very quiet about the President’s amnesty order. They must have come to the realization that such a path is not good for America, or for the American worker!
In addition, President Obama is utilizing the tried and true labor boss tactic of misdirection to take Americans’ “eyes off the ball” regarding his Amnesty Order, and instead, he has been directing attention to the recent events in Ferguson and New York City, as witnessed in a recent interview on BET where he said Racism is “Deeply Rooted” in U.S. Society. The SEIU used this same type of misdirection at every step in their campaign against my company in order to keep people misinformed of their true objective of forced unionism. In this case the President’s true agenda is open borders to secure future election votes for the Democratic Party! However, the following provides a clear path for the Republican Party to overcome these tactics, defeat Obama’s Amnesty Order and secure American lives, wages and jobs (see Now Or Later: Why Not Wait to Fight Over Amnesty, Ebola Strategy Revealed and Open Borders Costing American Jobs and Depressing Wages).
There is no doubt that some type of immigration reform, in concert with strong measures to protect our borders, is necessary and prudent in these challenging times. The questions at hand are how this should be accomplished, and if it is necessary to ram legislation through a “lame duck” session of Congress to achieve this goal? A closer look reveals that current attempts are for selfish political or business purposes instead of for the good of the American people and the Illegals it will impact!
We as a nation are culpable for the current circumstance. As citizens we have allowed our government …read more
