Of course, none of this outrageous behavior will stop the unions and corporatists who are bound and determined to destroy the United States of America. Breitbart‘s Matthew Boyle reports:
Fully 98 percent of individuals deported from the United States in 2013 were either criminals, apprehended while illegally crossing the border, or had been previously deported, according to a new analysis from Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)… “The evidence reveals that the Administration has carried out a dramatic nullification of federal law,” Sessions said…
Obama’s well-known executive action granted virtual amnesty to so-called DREAMers – individuals who claim to have entered the country as minors under their parents’ guidance… Two are lesser known executive actions include an Aug. 23, 2013, DHS directive “expanding that [summer 2012 executive DREAM Act] amnesty to illegal immigrant relatives of DREAM Act beneficiaries” and a Dec. 21, 2012, DHS directive “reinforcing that almost all immigration offenses were unenforceable absent a separate criminal conviction.”
…Only 0.2 percent of an estimated 12 million illegal aliens in the U.S. who were actually placed into removal proceedings in 2013 in 2013 did not have a violent or otherwise serious criminal conviction on their record. Only .08 percent of the total number of illegal aliens placed into removal proceedings were neither repeat or serial immigration law violators nor convicted of a serious crime. Even with that .08 percent of removals who were not caught crossing the border or being a serial immigration law violator or being convicted of serious crimes, Sessions’ staff notes that ICE officers who communicate with his office say that there is likely some other serious security risk for allowing them to stay in the country that is cause for their removal.
The findings stand in stark contrast to liberal calls on Obama to reduce deportations. Top Hispanic Democrats recently met with Obama at the White House recently about the issue, prompting an announcement about a review at the Department of Homeland Security about how to deport illegal aliens in a more “humane” fashion.
The report was enough to prompt a chorus of outrage from Sessions’ like-minded colleagues in the House, who slammed the Obama administration for enacting amnesty by fiat.
“This is another clear warning to anyone who thinks immigration reform is possible under President Obama,” said Rep. John Fleming (R-LA). “He has repeatedly shown a willingness to enforce the law selectively, while looking the other way when it doesn’t fit his agenda.”
As Sen. Sessions observes, “The Administration’s actions are breathtaking and without precedent. American citizens have both a legal and moral right to the protection our immigration laws afford; those rights have been systematically ignored, resulting in a massive loss of income and wages for the most vulnerable Americans. The Administration has abandoned its duty to faithfully execute the law and protect U.S. sovereignty, resulting not only in a collapse of immigration enforcement but a grave jeopardy to the American system of law and justice itself.”
This is truly criminal behavior on the part of this president, his party, and this administration. Remember in November.
Hat tip: Mark Levin
Would you be surprised to find out that California is ranked 47th in 8th grade science scores?
Or that 40 percent of California’s children aren’t fluent in English?
Or that 44 percent of incoming freshmen into the California state university system need help with remedial English and math?
Furthermore, “it is forbidden to notice that there is a cause-and-effect relationship between illegal immigration and these woes.”
On January 30, 2014, historian Victor Davis Hanson visited the Mark Levin Show (click here to open a new tab and listen to the podcast) and offered the most succinct, powerful and ominous summary of illegal immigration that I’ve ever heard.
The American Thinker‘s John Bennett captured the salient points and they are shocking.
America could be on “a path to Armageddon,” given the blend of relativism, racial preferences, and nullified immigration laws…
Hanson pointed out that many of today’s immigrants are not repeating the pattern of the Italians or Greeks, as just two examples. While Latino studies programs can be found at almost all universities, one does not find such “studies” for Italians or Greeks. That is just one dramatic distinction between immigrants today and past immigrants.
…Instead of amnesty, the Republicans should be pushing for limits on immigration. Hanson suggests that we can take 100,000 legal immigrants per year, but we can’t take one million per year, especially when they lack high school diplomas or English proficiency.
…A Californian, Hanson has seen firsthand the fiscal, social, and educational problems stemming from illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is “the reason the state is destroyed,” Hanson bluntly stated…
California, as a state, serves as the shining example of what happens under lax enforcement of immigration laws. The state is going bankrupt. The Republican Party is going extinct. At their lowest level of registration since 1922, Republicans are 29% of registered voters in California, while Democrats are 44%. In the face of population changes of the type that have occurred, the Republicans can’t modify, they can’t adjust, they can only die out.
…conservative voters understand that “blanket amnesties” are “going to unravel the American experiment and its also going to empower the Democratic Party for 40 years.”
Besides, any Republican effort to pander can be easily outdone by the Democrats. “Trying to outrace and outclass and outgender the Democratic Party is a losing proposition.”
While they pander, the Republicans would be losing a core group of voters who do actually support them in large numbers. “Why is this leadership deliberately trying to estrange and alienate 70% of the people who will go out and vote?” Hanson asked.
…Hanson concluded by describing the “postmodern relativism” inherent in local efforts to nullify immigration law, efforts driven by racial pandering.
There are “sanctuary cities” that forbid local law enforcement from asking about immigration status or engaging with federal authorities. Hanson urged that Republicans should be seizing on this “nullification” of federal law, to illustrate the left’s hypocrisy and recklessness. Even convicted violent felons have been harbored by cities like San Francisco, where one violent felon who should have been deported went on to murder a father and two of his sons.
Illegal immigration not only promotes anarchy, it endorses Balkanization and conflict.
Legal immigration encourages assimilation, the advancement of the civil society, and a harmonious respect for the written law.
The Republicans who push amnesty are encouraging suicide of their party — and America as a Consitutional republic.

No, now Islamists who support terror are welcome, too. Which is pretty much the Wall Street Journal position on immigration.
The Obama administration has eased the rules for would-be asylum-seekers, refugees and others who hope to come to the United States or stay here and who gave “limited” support to terrorists or terrorist groups… The change is one of President Barack Obama’s first actions on immigration since he pledged during his State of the Union address last month to use more executive directives…
The Department of Homeland Security and the State Department now say that people considered to have provided “limited material support” to terrorists or terrorist groups are no longer automatically barred from the United States.
…Rep. Bob Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called the change naive given today’s global terrorist threats… “President Obama should be protecting U.S. citizens rather than taking a chance on those who are aiding and abetting terrorist activity and putting Americans at greater risk,” said Goodlatte, R-Va.
As an up-and-coming politician, Mr. Obama feted terrorists and marinated in anti-semitism.
Which makes this unlawful “executive action” on the part of the president all the less surprising.
And when innocent Americans die — and they will — remember who Obama is and what his administration did.
