Barack Obama, Deporter in Chief, Wants to Speed Up Deportation of Immigrant Kids, Threatens Executive Action

The ACLU pounced on the Obama administration's suggestion of fast-tracking the deportations of immigrant kids.

"The President is mishandling a humanitarian crisis by proposing an inadequate speedy removal process that only further jeopardizes vulnerable children fleeing violence and persecution in Central America," Laura Murphy, Director of the ACLU's Washington Legislative Office, said in a statement released today.

"The U.S. has domestic and international legal obligations to asylum-seeking children, including access to an attorney," she added. "The procedures proposed for these children in crisis lack fundamental due process and deny fair treatment. It is imperative that these children receive a fair process to ensure that they are not being returned to life-threatening situations."

Also today, Obama threatened further executive action on immigration, saying that he's tired of waiting for Congress to deal with the issue.

Obama was quoted as saying that wants to "fix as much of our immigration system as I can, on my own, without Congress."

Wish I could say I had any confidence in those remarks.

Meanwhile, a revived hysteria over immigration continues apace, with idiot militia-types threatening to "put up a man fence" on the border to stop migrant tykes from crossing.

"Man fence"? Isn't that a scene from Brokeback Mountain?

Locally, ignorant politicians such as Governor Jan Brewer, Sheriff Joe Arpaio and just about every Republican gubernatorial candidate have been using the issue to raise money and look tough.

You know, because only a true leader knows how to stomp out this dangerous invasion of, um, children.

Online, I've been fighting with folks who think children trying to escape exploitation, poverty, gang violence and so forth, should be spurned, not assisted, by this country.

They claim they don't want their tax money used to help these kids, and to hell with what that federal statute says and the fact this issue has roots in Central American lawlessness, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

What I tell them in response is, no one ever asks me if I'm OK with my tax money going to pay for the education of other people's kids.

But I don't bitch about it. Why? Because as a society, we've agreed it's the right thing to do.

In this case, we all know what the right thing to do is: Take these children in and treat them humanely, according to the law. No fast-tracking. No simple solutions.

The 80 percent of them that DHS says may end up staying under current law?

Let them stay, Mr. President. Do not seek to change the law to allow you to do otherwise.

Don't let the shrill voices of hate, of calculating demagogues push U.S. policy.

Rather, let morality be our guide, so that America is truly the beacon of hope it always claims to be.

More illegal immigrants have been deported under Obama's watch than any president in history and social conservatives still attack him for being too lenient on illegal immigration. If we had social conservatives running this country, we might as well bring back Hitler.

Impressive. You use an article out of Arizona Republic as a reference to the notion that I blame Vets. Sorry, but your connection sucks.

Geez. I don't recall anything about blaming Veterans. I don't have any reason to say that. I'm not sure you can read either. But when I said under, it was not in relationship to you being under me. It was more like under educated, but I didn't want to say it. There it's out. You got it.

Deportation is justice. It restores the rule of law by which legitimate immigrants operate. Unauthorized foreign nationals tremble and scurry in the face of Justice for they are cowards and frauds.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SHOULD JUST READ THE OVERWHELMING COMMENTARIES IN THE MAINSTREAM PRESS THAT AMERICAN CITIZENS SEE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AS A MASSIVE NEGATIVE. NOT THE LIES FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, A MANIPULATED PRESS-- LIB-DEM POLLS THAT 75% OF AMERICANS APPROVE OF THE SENATE BILL. THE LIBERAL PROGRESSIVES, ANTI-SOVEREIGNTY GROUPS AND THE OPEN BORDER ZEALOTS WANT OPEN BORDERS. ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION LAW IS NOT BROKEN, IT’S JUST NOT ENFORCED.

AN EASY WAY TO UNDERSTAND THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION:

WE HAVE COWARDS IN THE CONGRESSIONAL HOUSE, WHO HAVE THE RIGHT TO CUT PURSE-STRINGS TO OBAMA’S SPENDING SPREE. IF OBAMA PASSES SOME KIND OF AMNESTY BY EXECUTIVE ORDER, WE ARE LOOKING AT ANOTHER 30 MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS TO ENTER THE U.S. THAT MEANS ANOTHER 30 MILLION FOREIGN NATIONALS WILL BE ABLE TO OBTAIN MEDICAID AND THE TAXPAYER GETS THE BILL.

Here is an easy way to understand the illegal immigration enigma. Sacrifice at least a few minutes and call, fax your Senator or House Representative , or eventually your family, children will not recognize the America and a negative future under Obama’s Imperial reign. www.numbersusa.com/content/ or the

PhoneNumbers and Mailing Addresses of Members of Congress at www.contactingthecongress.org...by Select the letter below matching the first letter of the congressperson's last name.

Within Los AngelesCounty’s health care delivery system as an example illegals aliens are being treated at a cost of nearly $500 million dollars a year. The cost alone to our Criminal Justice system for the 25 percent of the foreign nationals in the jail population exceeds 550 million dollars a year? Additionally, illegals collect over $260 million in CALWORKS payments and $360 million in food stamp allocations. These costs alone exceed one billion dollars annually – excluding the cost of education.  Nearly 100,000 children of 60,000 undocumented parents receive aid – for a total of 160,000 incorporated into a city, it would be the 6th largest city in Los Angeles county Also, one in fifteen people in California is an illegal immigrant – costing our State $3 billion dollars annually.

The failure to control our borders and the lack of reimbursement from the state and federal government is breaking the back of local government. These costs have impacted the economy, the social fiber and the effective operation of our County.” 

What we don't need is introducing more poverty to America.

What we don’t need is introducing infectious diseases as Drug Resistant Tuberculosis. (I noticed that the national press has all but completely ignored this major disastrous dilemma.)

What we don’t need is introducing more unemployment, when millions of Americans are jobless.
What we don’t need is lower wages, by importing cheap illegal aliens.
What we don’t need even more crime imported, as
America has its own criminals.
What we don’t need is introducing more educational drop outs from foreign countries.
What we don’t need is introducing is more welfare enslavement with 3rd World K-12 schooling.
What we don't need is introducing even overpopulation and gridlock highways & water shortage.
What we don't need is introducing more disparity between classes of people.

What we don’t need is the Obama Administration handing out free welfare checks, schooling, Medicaid, free maternity benefits, vouchers for cheap housing and major entitlements to illegal aliens.
What we don't need is introducing more cultural problems by importing non-speakers of English.
What we don't need in introducing foreigners who are complicit in changing American Society.

What we do need is the True double layer fence stretching from West to East.

What we do need is to seal the border which both political parties have derailed.

What we do need is military deployment to the border.

What we do need is more ICE audits on employers, with stringent subsequent penalties.

What we do need is more ICE personal for internal enforcements.

What we do need is an mandated E-Verify for all ports of entry or;

a National digital ID card, for identity to stop illegal aliens from gaming the welfare system and bogus voting. THE $2Billion dollars that Obama has requested for the crisis at the border, is the exact amount that it would cost to issue every American Citizenship with a mandatory digital ID card.
What we do need is a return to the quota system for immigrants.
What we do need is a point system for highly skilled new immigrants.

We don't need is Sen. Harry Reid giving out fraudulent child tax credits ($4.B) to illegal aliens.

What we do need is more Moderate Conservative Candidates, The National Tea Party) who will enforce the edicts of the Rule of Law and the U.S. Constitution.

What must be stopped is President Obama communicating to impoverished countries that if you reach America, you will not be deported. In fact we will even give public benefits.

Wow, nice label. And what do you call muslims? Oh wait, it's not politically correct to do hateful labels on muslims, or Jews, or buddhists... just Christians.
Nice.
With regard to Hobby Lobby, I'm going to make a huge leap of faith (us redneck Jesus freaks do that, inexplicably) and share with you the Supreme Court's core rational for its decision, in hopes that somehow you will understand the dangers to our First Amendment:

I assume you mean PBS?
Here is the whole truth, though both sides usually won't do their homework, CBS, NBS, ABS, MSLSD, CNN (Communist News Network) and Faux News--including Bain Capital controlled talk radio--are all different sides of the same coin.
They get us thinking demlican v republicrat, brown v. white, rich v. poor, etc. and while we are divided and distracted, they destroy the economy, our culture, our language, our borders--everything that defines a nation.
The end is coming if we don't start seeing the few families of offshore private banksters that own and control the whole thing, and fight back by starting with the local political candidates that demonstrated they absolutely will uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution... Start with the local sheriff, he/she's the best place to start.

What the hell movie are you watching?
So what you're saying is if someone is a conservative, they are racist?
That is hugely offensive and uncalled for. Based on the kind of logic and assumptions you have employed here, you wouldn't know any truth except that which has been presented to you as acceptable for your social circle.

Wow, you really thought that one through, didn't you? And what do you think of "non-racist" groups like La Raza?
I think you need to do something about your neural pathways that are rigidly formed for you via taxpayer-paid leftist teachers and prostiticians, as well as the corp.-owned presstitute media.
You are in big trouble young man and you had better wake up to this whole demlican/republicrat game they are playing on you. Study the Constitution for yourself (not how others tell you it should be read) and investigate the foundations of what really started and kept this country together before you go off and label others based on the military/industrial/govt. complex's strategy to impoverish and divide this nation against ourselves, turn it into a North American Union, etc. That will be a disaster beyond what you can imagine.

And I don't want to fund any housing for you, like a tax deduction on your home if u have one. If u ever need social services, go fuck yourself. And if you have brats as filthy minded as u, fuck giving them free education. Or a federally backed student loan.

@fishingblues That's right.  The ultimate expression of socialism is in the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc.
E.g.,
NAZI = Nationalsozialismus = National Socialism

200 million deaths in the 20th century apparently still hasn't been enough for people to figure out what a truly abhorrent idea socialism is...

@fishingblues  I am a classical liberal, of the variety that was begun as abolitionists...but wow, has the definition lost all semblance of cogent meaning. "Liberal" and "progressive" are words that no longer resemble what was intended and instead are more akin to a mental disorder.

marxismsucks

@TheyCallMeMrTibbs  Wow, getting a "deduction" from something that shouldn't be taxed in the first place is commensurate with giving free handouts to illegals to medicate, educate, incarcerate, etc. but I'm sure your just fine with vets being homeless and needlessly dying from neglect due to bloated social service nincompoopery.
But that's okay, I'm sure your Marxist-minded labeling makes you feel justified anyway.
Enjoy your FEMA camp when your criminal marxist idols/tools let you know you were never "in on it" to begin with.

@fishingblues  I am a Constitutionalist, if I must be saddled with a label.
I do like most libertarians, however, the govt./media complex's COINTELPRO has wreaked a bit of havoc lately with the "libertarian" term and they are increasingly trying to hijack things toward atheistic anarchy, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense when you really boil things down.
Anyway, I get the gist of where you're coming from and I wish more people could.  Then, we could shake the criminal globalist puppets in the White House & Congress like so many fleas off of a dog...
But people are too divided and way too easily led down the demlican/republicrat "us v. them" path at this time...add to that the incomplete (or nonexistent) picture of history--and the distractions, programming and hypnosis of entertainment, gossip, sports, video games, self-medication, etc... and you have a perfect recipe for an uninformed electorate that only cares about voting in their own handouts, regardless of the long term harm (including for them!).
God help us.

Good to see another clear-headed, thinking individual on this blog.  There may be as many as three or four now.  


The Libertarian philosophy fits my profile exactly.  I am a strict fiscal conservative.  For all other things that have no negative bearing on fiscal matters, I am fairly liberal minded.  


Most of my posts are simply running at loony, self-absorbed, arrogant, smug, self-deluded liberals.  They take themselves so seriously and I do it for pure enjoyment.
