Obama's misconceptions on immigration reform

“We need a (sic) effective way to recognize and legalize the status of undocumented workers who are here.”

Amnesty is not widely accepted in the United States. If you phrase the question “just so” you’ll get a majority. But if you point-blank ask if we should reward those who entered the country illegally with amnesty, the majority will tell you “no.”

Schumer is fond of saying that America approves of the immigrant but disapproves of the illegal alien. He’s right. But then Washington gets busy with the lipstick and Americans can see right through it.

And with people taking to the streets in Illinois for social services, they don’t want freeloaders from other countries competing for a piece of the pie. Health insurance? Well, look at the foreign-born and tell me sponsorship is working. It isn’t.

“I have asked my Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Secretary Janet Napolitano, to lead up a group…” It was wrong for Bush to use Chertoff and it’s wrong for Obama to use Napolitano. Her job is to enforce the law and look for terrorist threats; and she has a very full plate. She has no business lobbying for amnesty. Wanna solve 12 million problems at ICE? Legalize them and,“Viola!”, the problems go away. What nonsense!

“I am confident that if we enter into this with the notion that this is a nation of laws that have to be observed…” Did he just say that right after telling us that we need to legalize 12 million people who are here illegally? Does that make any sense?

How do you send the message that we are serious about our laws when we offer to legalize the very people who have shown a complete disregard for those laws?

So that’s the start on June 25th at the big summit on comprehensive immigration reform.
