“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.The date, July 1, 2010 just three days prior to the nation’s 234 birthday, in 4,110 words and in 34 minutes 48 seconds president Barry Hussein Soetoro told the American people that it is his intention to give 40 million illegal Mexican Citizens in this country amnesty. That is his wish in spite of the continuing criminal enterprise and conspiracy of illegally entering this country by the Country and people of Mexico.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”-- Marcus Tullius Cicero
Shockingly the president of the United States of America is willing to aid and abet this conspiracy as is United States Federal Government. President Soetoro’s complicitous act essentially, would make Mexicans dual citizens of both countries able to vote in both the United States’ and in Mexico’s elections.
The ramifications of such dual citizenship on the sovereignty of the United States are worst than the real and permanent ecological damage from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a spill that president Soetoro has been unable to stop. Moreover, the ramifications of creating such a special class of people is worst than any of the false cataclysmic scenarios that the debunked theory of carbon dioxide induced Global warming (which was supposed to unleash devastation upon the world) a debunked theory, which president Soetoro still promotes.
Soetoro began his pre anti-Independence Day speech by mixing both the concepts, of legally immigrating to this country, with illegally entering this country. These concepts are clearly not the same but there he stood weaving them together as if no one would notice and like he doesn’t care whether Americans did or didn’t notice.
Interestingly, by about three-fourths into his speech, the whole illusion imploded onto itself and the president did something that advocates for Mexican Amnesty never do, he told the truth. (see transcript) (see 34:48min video)
Usually advocates of Mexican Amnesty employ verbal dishonestly which amounts to calling a bank robber “a customer making a cash withdrawal,” Or calling a rapist “a ladies’ man” when they insist on referring to citizens of Mexico who violate United States immigration laws as “immigrants.” When advocates of illegal aliens use such Orwellian language, there can be no honest debate because of the dishonest terminology.
President Soetoro in this one moment acknowledged that Mexicans citizens are in the United States illegally and living in the shadows thus, they are breaking U.S. law. However, he did also state there is nothing that Americans can do about it. Instead, the president employed a deviated and twisted logic to sell a plan to the American people, a wrong plan to give American citizenship to the citizens of Mexico.
The president’s plan is simply to make illegals, legal. That would be tantamount to making robbery legal or to granting amnesty to a bank robber who stole millions of dollars. Under a president Soetoro’s “bank robber’s “Amnesty plan the United States would make the robber pay taxes on the money he robbed. Make him pay a fine, make him go to business school and then make him president of the bank that he robbed because there is nothing that we can do to change the fact that he robbed the bank. Besides, His children have become accustomed to living off the pilfered money. It wouldn’t be fair to deprive the children of their lifestyle.
The above scenario of “bank robber’s” amnesty is how the Soetoro deviant and twisted logic of granting amnesty to illegals sounds to normal Americans.
In president Soetoro’s speech, he vacillated between Orwellian language meant to obscure meaning and language with real intent. Below are highlights of the president’s speech (in italics) with Creating Orwellian Worldview explanation of what he really means in (bold):
And everywhere, people have expressed frustration with a system that seems fundamentally broken.
This is to set up fraudulent argument that the “Immigration system” is broken. The “system” was not designed to take in millions of people in the fashion that illegals are entering this country. Furthermore, in order to be considered broken the system would have to be functioning in a manner different from the way it was designed to function. It is not.
The system is working the way it was designed to function. The forces behind Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) want something that the system is not designed to deliver. The argument that the system is broken is a false argument.
The argument that the system is broken is a ruse a con in order to get Comprehensive Immigration Reform and everyone knows it.
Of course, the tensions around immigration are not new
This statement is an attempt to defer responsibility for the tension that the president has intentionally caused with his calls for CIR.
Immigration also means we have a younger workforce -– and a faster-growing economy — than many of our competitors. And in an increasingly interconnected world, the diversity of our country is a powerful advantage in global competition.
The president purposely confuses Immigrant with Illegal Alien entry here. But that’s not the half of it. The reality of it is, unemployment in this country is 9.5% , 14.5 million Americans are out of work and have been out of work for months. The economy is in the dumper. Our competitors China’s and India’s economies are red hot. There is China with low wageworkers and India with American jobs, which were outsourced by American corporations. These U.S. Corporations are exploiting low wage, highly educated, non-unionized populace in India usuriously increasing their profit margins.
Introducing 40 million plus additional workers into an already jobless and ailing economy is not only suicidal but also unwise. (see here and here)
being an American is not a matter of blood or birth. It’s a matter of faith. It’s a matter of fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear. That’s what makes us unique. That’s what makes us strong. Anybody can help us write the next great chapter in our history.
Where in the annuals of American history have we ever heard such nonsense? Not a matter of blood? Tell that to the Americans throughout history that gave their blood in war and in duty to this country that died for this country. And not a matter of birth?
Tell that to the millions of illegals that sneak across the border to have their babies born in America or tell that to the Article II Section 1 of the Constitution which reads: No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Or tell that the 14th Amendment of the Constitution which reads: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.
Now, we can’t forget that this process of immigration and eventual inclusion has often been painful. Each new wave of immigrants has generated fear and resentments towards newcomers, particularly in times of economic upheaval.
Again purposely confusing immigration and illegal entry. The process that he is speaking of is granting Amnesty to illegal aliens not to people that immigrated by legal means.
Congress passed the Alien and Sedition Acts, which placed harsh restrictions of those suspected of having foreign allegiances.
So the politics of who is and who is not allowed to enter this country, and on what terms, has always been contentious. And that remains true today. And it’s made worse by a failure of those of us in Washington to fix a broken immigration system.
While it is true that immigration has been contentious throughout America’s history, However, the conversation that America is presently having is not about immigration it is about illegal entry into this country as the president in this very speech acknowledges.
To begin with, our borders have been porous for decades. Obviously, the problem is greatest along our Southern border, but it’s not restricted to that part of the country. In fact, because we don’t do a very good job of tracking who comes in and out of the country as visitors, large numbers avoid immigration laws simply by overstaying their visas.
It is only a recent phenomenon for our government to ignore the willful breaking of U.S. immigration laws by official mandate of non-enforcement of law.
The result is an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. The overwhelming majority of these men and women are simply seeking a better life for themselves and their children. Many settle in low-wage sectors of the economy; they work hard, they save, they stay out of trouble.
11 million is what officials will admit to. The numbers are more like 40 million. The question goes begging, Why aren't we talking about the broken country of Mexico. A country which 40million or 11 million of its citizens would abandon it to “seek a better life” by exploiting another country economy?
billions in tax revenue are lost each year because many undocumented workers are paid under the table.
This is a true statement. Billions of dollars that could pay American workers.
More fundamentally, the presence of so many illegal immigrants makes a mockery of all those who are going through the process of immigrating legally.
This again a true statement
In sum, the system is broken. And everybody knows it. Unfortunately, reform has been held hostage to political posturing and special-interest wrangling
The Immigration system is not broken. The Federal government is broken. The country of Mexico is broken. Attempting to pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform is a political stunt. The Soetoro administration is attempting to take advantage of a crisis.
Into this breach, states like Arizona have decided to take matters into their own hands. Given the levels of frustration across the country, this is understandable. But it is also ill conceived. And it’s not just that the law Arizona passed is divisive -– although it has fanned the flames of an already contentious debate. Laws like Arizona’s put huge pressures on local law enforcement to enforce rules that ultimately are unenforceable.
Arizona is the only state that is fighting for the American dream. Arizona is fighting to preserve America. Arizona’s law is the right thing to do when the Federal government is broken and refuses to do its job. There is no real debate here. Only those who would attempt to destroy America with false arguments while allowing lawbreakers to justify breaking the law.
These laws also have the potential of violating the rights of innocent American citizens and legal residents, making them subject to possible stops or questioning because of what they look like or how they sound.
This is a false argument. The Arizona law is written to prevent the violation of citizen’s rights. Not to mention, legal resident are subject to possible stops and questioning for how they look and sound all the time. Why should Mexican’s be any different?
Our task then is to make our national laws actually work
This is a suppose to be our task but it is not with regards to the issue of illegal entry. Democrats have tasked themselves to increase their voters rolls through granting 40 million Mexican citizens American citizenship and all the rights and privileges that go along with it.
Moreover, it would tear at the very fabric of this nation -– because immigrants who are here illegally are now intricately woven into that fabric. Many have children who are American citizens. Some are children themselves, brought here by their parents at a very young age, growing up as American kids, only to discover their illegal status when they apply for college or a job. Migrant workers -– mostly here illegally
Ahh so now the truth is told the so-called “immigrants” are actually illegal aliens who have worked the system to create an anomaly of illegality. They create a false legality of children who are deemed American citizens to anchor themselves in the United States. This is not what the 14th amendment was designed to do. Using it as such is a violation of the spirit of the 14th amendment. The reality is an illegal act should never be rewarded with legitimacy.
Now, once we get past the two poles of this debate, it becomes possible to shape a practical, common-sense approach that reflects our heritage and our values. Such an approach demands accountability from everybody -– from government, from businesses and from individuals.
This is a false portrayal. We are not dealing with two equally relative opinions. There is no third way. Those who support illegal entry support lawlessness. Those who support stopping illegal entry support the American constitution and the law of the land. Those who support ending illegal entry are using common sense and they reflect America heritage and American values.
Government has a threshold responsibility to secure our borders.
Not only a threshold responsibility but a total responsibility that includes enforcement of immigrant law even after the lawbreaker has entered the country.
So the bottom line is this: The southern border is more secure today than at any time in the past 20 years.
Simply not true. There is an recent urgency to cross the border that has been manufactured in the last 10 years which has created the un-safest conditions surrounding the borders in the last 20 years.
Finally, we have to demand responsibility from people living here illegally. They must be required to admit that they broke the law. They should be required to register, pay their taxes, pay a fine, and learn English. They must get right with the law before they can get in line and earn their citizenship
People who live here illegally knew the risk when they first chose to break our laws, just like any criminal they should not benefit from their illegal act. There is no way that someone who is here illegally can earn citizenship. Earning citizenship is a privilege reserved for those who abide by the laws of the United States of America.
Now, stopping illegal immigration must go hand in hand with reforming our creaky system of legal immigration.
There is no reason that stopping illegal immigration must be coupled with anything else.
So these are the essential elements of comprehensive immigration reform.
president Soetoro just outline a program to give 40 million Mexican citizens access to our electoral process, our welfare system, our over burdened health care system, our over worked school system and our sickly economy. He then called his outline comprehensive immigration reform.
who understand that fixing our broken immigration system is not only a political issue, not just an economic issue, but a moral imperative as well.
Our immigration system is not broken. Our Federal government is broken, i.e. can’t stop the oil spill in the gulf, can’t enforce our borders, and can’t fix our ailing economy. In addition to that, Mexico is broken. Mexico can’t create jobs for 40 million Mexican citizens now residing illegally in the United States and can’t stop the violence of Mexican Drug Cartels
I’m ready to move forward; the majority of Democrats are ready to move forward; and I believe the majority of Americans are ready to move forward.
what you mean president Soetoro is that you and Democrats are ready to grant Mexican citizens American citizenship. But the last I checked the American people said no to Amnesty. Step away from the Amnesty Mr. president that would be a move forward!
But the fact is, without bipartisan support, as we had just a few years ago, we cannot solve this problem. Reform that brings accountability to our immigration system cannot pass without Republican votes. That is the political and mathematical reality.
It's really a matter of timing and priorities Mr. president. If you hadn’t wasted your political capitol on the bailouts, pork spending, pushing through health care (over the protest of the American people) and stimulus 1, 2 and 3 all without Republican help. You would not need “bipartisan” help now.
Your policies are what placed a limit on your ability to ram your agenda down the throats of Americans without Republican support. The American people respond by sending Scott Brown to scale down your reckless spending and social engineering. We are quite aware of the political and mathematical reality. That is how we plan to stop you from doing another thing to harm America.
One of the largest waves of immigration in our history took place little more than a century ago. At the time, Jewish people were being driven out of Eastern Europe, often escaping to the sounds of gunfire and the light from their villages burning to the ground.
Wrong! In 1881–1920, 2 million Eastern European Jews immigrate to the United States. You presently have 40 million Mexicans illegally entering the United States and no racial persecution either. Just a pathetic and broken country.
It was at this time that a young woman named Emma Lazarus, whose own family fled persecution from Europe generations earlier, took up the cause of these new immigrants. Although she was a poet, she spent much of her time advocating for better health care and housing for the newcomers. And inspired by what she saw and heard, she wrote down her thoughts and donated a piece of work to help pay for the construction of a new statue — the Statue of Liberty — which actually was funded in part by small donations from people across America.
Mr. president the statue of Liberty was a gift from the French. You really should bone up on American history . By the way, America has 50 states not 59 as you suppose! Also you are wrong again the American people donated for the base on which the statue of Liberty stands not the statue itself which again was a gift to the United States from France.
Finally, the fact is the United States of America does not have a broken immigration system. The fact is Mexico is a broken country. Mexico is a country that is exporting its poverty, its crime, its problems of lack of economic infrastructure and insolvency to the United States . Mexico is broken.
If Mexico could support the 40 million Mexicans, who are presently illegally in the United States with jobs in their own country those illegals would leave the United States and go back home to Mexico. Mexico is broken not the United States immigration system.
Yet instead of arguing the brokenness of the country of Mexico which is the fundamental reason for this argument of CIR the President like every other Progressive has turned the argument on its head and is arguing that the United States’ system is broken because the U.S. system is not intended to accommodate the border run of 40 million Mexico people. It is a phenomenon that no country in the history of the world has had to accommodate and no other country would be able to withstand.
President Soetoro attempted fast sell of the America people on the idea that illegal entry into this country is comparable to the long history of legal immigration that is a part of American heritage, the Ellis Island experience. It is not Mr. Soetoro.
Mr. Soetoro don’t you understand that there is a difference between immigrating to the United States legally and illegally entering the United States by sneaking across the border? Apparently, you do not sir, but we do. We are not as foolish as you think we are Mr. president.
