Desperate People do Desperate Things
President Obama said Thursday that the Supreme Court’s decision to block his plan to defer the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants was “frustrating” and indicative of the court’s inability “to function the way it is supposed to.”
Obama spoke out about the court’s 4-4 deadlock – which effectively blocked his executive action on immigration – at a press conference on Thursday, saying, “Our founders conceived this country as refuge for the world. Welcoming wave after wave of immigrants kept us youthful and dynamic and entrepreneurial. It has shaped our character and it has made us stronger.”
Only those who admittedly know absolutely nothing about the history of this nation would make a statement like that one. Furthermore, there is an entire staff of writer’s sitting with me now wondering about source material or a simply citation as to what the POTUS is talking about.
Welcoming wave after wave of immigrants kept us youthful and dynamic and entrepreneurial. It has shaped our character and it has made us stronger.”
He has used this line so many times in his trek of breaking laws and doing whatever he can ( $$ ) as his mentor-in-chief, Hillary Rodham Clinton has to make money. Sure the U.S.A. has been fortunate during immigration periods when the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) was able to do its job without overreaching from the White House.
What President Obama has done for and on behalf of this nation’s rough immigration process – is basically nothing. Whereas the “Founding Congress” at least put some character and behavioral traits that an immigrant would have to clearly identify with, what we have received from Barack Obama is Mr. Niceguy who openly admitted that an inactive government is ineffectual at best.
“But for more than two decades now our immigration system, everybody acknowledges, has been broken. And the fact that the Supreme Court wasn’t able to issue a decision today doesn’t just set the system back further, it takes us further from the country that we aspire to be.” Please Mr. Obama how long have you been in office?
The case will now return to a lower court in Texas that initially halted Obama from launching the new program that would grant deferred action status to undocumented immigrants who have children who are American citizens or have green cards.
Defiant in the face of a Supreme Court rebuke, President Obama warned Thursday that immigration reform is at stake in the November election and called on Americans to reject Donald Trump’s “fantasy” approach to the contentious issue.
The president, speaking after a 4-4 high court ruling that blocked his sweeping plan to protect some 5 million immigrants from deportation, never spoke Trump’s name but alluded to the presumptive GOP nominee’s proposals to force Mexico to pay for a border wall and to freeze Muslim immigration to the U.S.
“That’s the real amnesty — pretending we can deport 11 million people or build a wall without spending tens of billions of dollars in taxpayer money,” Obama said in the White House briefing room. “It’s not going to work, and it’s not good for this country. It’s a fantasy that offers nothing to help the middle class, and it demeans our tradition of being both a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.”
