Obama Vows To Keep Fighting For Illegal Aliens

For legal U.S. citizens? Not so much

(The Hill) President Obama vowed Saturday to keep fighting for undocumented immigrants despite actions by Republicans and some judges to derail his executive orders.

“I’m going to keep doing everything I can to make our immigration system more just and more fair,” Obama said in his weekly address Saturday, marking Immigrant Heritage Month.

Obama said he took action last November to provide more resources for border security and to modernize the legal immigration system to bring illegal immigrants “out of the shadows.”

“Some folks are still fighting against these actions,” he said. “I’m going to keep fighting for them. Because the law is on our side. It’s the right thing to do. And it will make America stronger.”

Let’s not forget

Late last month, a federal appeals court panel refused to lift a Texas judge’s injunction that prevents Obama’s immigration plan from being implemented. Obama’s orders would defer deportations for as many as five million people who are in the United States illegally.

In other words, the judges found Obama’s executive orders illegal. The law sure seems to disagree with his actions.

As far as “fair”, fair to whom? How does any of this help the American population? Oh, sure, I understand that this will surely help the Democratic Party’s election chances, but, how does this help We The People? How does releasing over 3,700 Level 1 illegals, those deemed top priority for deportation, back into the populace?

How does being squishy on illegal aliens help? Are we supposed to feel bad for the illegal who was running a puppy mill (she’s from the U.K.)? Or the one who was just convicted for kidnapping? Or, how about the one given executive amnesty who is facing charges of child molestation and pornography? What’s that? You say Obama’s only releasing good ones? How about

Documents provided to the House Judiciary Committee for a hearing last month show that ICE released 30,558 convicted criminal illegal aliens in Fiscal Year 2014. Convictions range from homicide, battery, kidnapping, sexual assault and larceny. Nearly 14,000 were convicted of driving under the influence of liquor.

How many criminal illegals must We The People deal with? How much crime must we deal with? Our jails are full of these criminal illegals. Why must we put up with deflated wages caused by illegals? Why must our roads be in danger? Why must we be in danger? Why must we worry about our identities being stolen by these illegals? Illegal immigration, whether it be people who cross the borders illegally or overstay their visas, is not a victimless crime.

This is all wrapped up in his weekly address which is supposedly about “celebrating immigrant heritage month“.

I want us to remember people like Ann Dermody from Alexandria, Virginia. She’s originally from Ireland and has lived in America legally for years. She worked hard, played by the rules and dreamed of becoming a citizen. In March, her dream came true. And before taking the oath, she wrote me a letter. “The papers we receive…will not change our different accents [or] skin tones,” Ann said. “But for that day, at least, we’ll feel like we have arrived.”

Well, to Ann and immigrants like her who have come to our shores seeking a better life – yes, you have arrived. And by sharing our stories, and staying true to our heritage as a nation of immigrants, we can keep that dream alive for generations to come.

Ann did it correctly, and then this chump links her doing it the right way with all the people who haven’t.
