Obama to debut major immigration push Tuesday in Las Vegas

Obama thumbs upThe White House has announced Friday that President Obama will debut his plans for comprehensive immigration reform at an event Tuesday in Las Vegas.

With potential 2016 presidential contender U.S. Senator Marco Rubio having released his own plans for immigration reform and dominating the airwaves for the past week on the issue, it appears the Democratic Party is ready to put a damper on his monopoly.

As reported by The Hill:

In a statement, the White House said the president’s proposal would call for legislation to create a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Obama held a strategy session Friday with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, telling the lawmakers that reform efforts would be “a top priority” in his second term.

Members of the caucus who were present at the meeting said Obama assured them that he shares the group’s basic beliefs about immigration reform, the Huffington Post notes. That belief includes making a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants an absolute must.

Rubio’s plan includes a pathway to citizenship, although it would have to be “earned.”

    Obama and Democrats want to severely restrict your access to legal firearms and demand extensive background checks plus registration with the government law enforcement, but refuse to allow law enforcement to check the immigration status of people detained in the course of police work! He demands we submit to governement the decision about whether we can buy or keep our guns, but refuses to deport known illegals who are arrested and convicted of crimes! He demands we make our medical histories available to government if they suspect we have mental issues when we purchase a weapon, but howl at the suggestion we require a photo ID to vote! This man is intent on standing common sense on its ear to achieve the destruction of American culture and society so he can remake it is his socialist, state-controlled idea.

    Most people come to this country to find work – they risk their lives in many cases to do so. The Republican party keeps referring to these people as illegal aliens instead of undocumented workers – this is to cast them in the most unfavorable light. Most of the jobs are jobs that no one in this country wants – we need these jobs performed. Many also want their children to have better lives. It is sad that there is so much hatred towards these families. I get that there are people who are waiting in line to come here legally – they should absolutely take first preference. Having said that, to have people here working under the table and not paying taxes is just plain stupid. We need to provide a situation where they come out from the shadows and are allowed to work legally and pay into the system. At the same time, they need to pay a penalty (which should be paid as a tax to help reduce our deficit), learn english and can't become citizens for a period of time. We need to remember that every one of us are from families that came here from another country – most at a time when they were free to just come into the country without restrictions.

    Nice try, Jayne, but no cigar. They are called illegals because they are in America illegally. You try to go to Mexico withoout a passport or stay too long. They throw you in jail without a thought. Mexico arrests illegals moving through their country from South America enroute to the US all the time. We do not allow people into America at our airports and seaports without a passport and proper documentation. Is the governement is discriminating against the rest of the world in favor of Mexicans? The answer is yes.

    You opinion is woithout merit and cannt be justified with logic or the law, so you resort to the tired old Progressive lines about the "poor" and "the pitiful children." It doesn't work any longer. You'll have to think up a new scam to justify your one world governance position.

    In addition to Sen. Rubio's provisions, I would like to add this proviso: All offspring born in this country of undocumented aliens, up to the time of naturalization, shall not be considered U.S. citizens at birth, but must under go naturalization at the age of majority (i.e., voting age).

    IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON’T SPEAK UP NEXT MONDAY, THEN THEY DESERVE WHAT THEY GET FROM THE OPEN BORDER ORGANIZATIONS? THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER MUST SPEAK OUT AGAINST ANOTHER POTENTIAL PATH TO CITIZENSHIP.

    Of course President Obama is going to Nevada to debate Illegal Immigration, as the state is snowed under with illegal aliens. Thousands of them voted in the general election for President, as well as many of the 50 States in the clutches of Liberal assemblies. I just hope the Congress knows they are committing self inflicted Hari-Kari, if they presumed to know what the taxpayers want..? Only the ‘Deadbeats” don’t care as they are not paying a nickel into the federal and state tax pool, as they live like parasites of the people who have jobs, same as the illegal alien parents who have smuggled their offspring here and then apply for welfare for all their 6 kids, free schooling, health care and a lump sum of benefit money. Adds up to a nice tidy sum, which goes towards the underground job their relatives have marshaled them into? For me an Independent voter, that only the TEA PARTY makes sense and can return America to country it once was? Also don’t trust the mainstream press polls, as I am sure that they are fixed or at least engineered for positive results. The only one that can be trusted forthwith is the Rasmussen polls, as far as I am concerned. My personal poll is the thousands of comments in the newspapers—rural and national press—that gives a good indicator of what people are thinking; they are angry and frustrated with Washington issues, especially Immigration. If politicians want to comprehend the thought process of the average American; people believe that the Congress is pandering to the invaders from other countries.

    The only way that I see to clean up the pandemonium called Immigration enforcement, is a strict and 100 percent mandatory E-Verify? A mandatory E-Verify, perhaps even run by a security company or a charge card company as Visa or Master card and not lax government employees? Spend the money and make it as foolproof as possible and use whatever resources are available. If the U.S. government can make vehicular unmanned probes that can detect a license plate from thousands of feet above us, they can surely build computer software that can detect illegal aliens in jobs meant for Americans and legal residents? E-Verify has expanded its information sources to include State driver’s license records, which strengthens the veracity of the program. Florida and Tennessee initiated this innovation allowing USCIS to collect data using their vehicle agencies for worker discrepancies. It is pastime that the Congress enact Lamar Smith’s “THE LEGAL WORKFORCE BILL” R-Texas) bill to (Phone: 202-225-4236), as proposed will make E-Verify a mandatory law and will no longer be voluntary. America has come to this paramount point, because of years of corruption by both parties.

    An estimated 23 million Americans are still jobless, in part time work or just gave up looking, while millions of illegal aliens still have jobs. This is very sinister situation and those responsible should be held accountable, but never are? With President Obama’s ultimatum of another path to citizenship, we could be seeing a repeat of the rampant fraud that existed in the 1986 Amnesty. Like a giant magnet millions of more foreign nationals outside the United States are going to try and break into our sovereign nation. Illegal aliens will funnel somewhere along the border regions or by lying to the Embassy staff in foreign countries to obtain a visa as a tourist. Before any new Comprehensive Immigration Reform we must secure our borders, constructing the two fences to the former plan of President Bush, the 2006 Secure Fence Act.

    Lastly, the second bill that must be passed is Steve Kings (R-Iowa) THE BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP AMENDMENT (H.R. 140). Contact his main Washington office at (Phone: 202.225.4426) or his subsidiary offices in Iowa. The Birthright Citizenship bill will bring to an end the “Anchor Baby” legal-corruption, meant for the past generation of slaves. By passing this law, we can stop any more DREAMERS’ ACT or sponsorship of family members who arrive here under CHAIN MIGRATION. There is no real statistics on the cost, but smuggling young children or unborn into the U.S. pays off for the illegal alien parents, in hundreds of billions of dollars a year—and over decades TRILLIONS OF TAX DOLLARS, including child tax refunds that should never paid in the first place. The IRS has turned a blind eye to this robbery of more taxpayer’s money. These two laws should be strongly endorsed right now, to eradicate the corruption in high positions. The insistence from lobbyists that our politicians should not pass these laws, as it would cut into the incredible profits of corporations and businesses, large and small. That is why the 1986 Amnesty became a terrible mess, because millions of foreigners poured into our country as soon as President Reagan signed the bill.

    Least we not forget that Obama’s people passed the Affordable Care Act, which has endless possibilities for illegal aliens. Supposedly foreign nationals cannot apply for ObamaCare, but I know as well as millions of TEA Party members and a large proportion of average Americans that a loophole will materialize or using procured Social Security numbers or feeder identification that in the endless bureaucratic chaos to follow, they will benefit from it, costing the legal population even more billions?

    Even with millions of Americans jobless the labor visa program still brings into this country over a million legal immigrants a year. A limited number come under the highly skilled category of STEM workers, who are top engineers and other heavily credentialed staff for different high level jobs. But the majority comes sponsored by years of immigration corruption going back decades. Immediate family members who are sponsored eventually become the U.S. taxpayer responsibility in the majority of cases.
