(Dis)respect for our immigration laws tells us a lot

(Dis)respect for our immigration laws tells us a lot

It was widely reported earlier this week that there was a mass coaching of Mexicans as to which phrases to use at the border to gain them temporary asylum, including lodging:

A sudden influx of illegal immigrants from Mexico requesting asylum is overwhelming immigration agents in San Diego, forcing agencies to rent hotel rooms for some undocumented families and release others to cities around the U.S.

Documents obtained exclusively by Fox News show Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been paying for hotel rooms for dozens of recently arrived families to relieve overcrowding inside the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa, Calif., processing centers. Some ICE employees are working overtime and others have been asked to volunteer to work weekend shifts. “Duties include intake, placements, transports and release of family groups and unaccompanied minors,” according to a memo obtained by Fox News. 

The surge has raised suspicions about what is driving the influx, amid claims that illegal immigrants have learned they can attempt to get asylum by using a few key words — namely, by claiming they have a “credible fear” of drug cartels. 

“This clearly has to have been orchestrated by somebody,” said former U.S. Attorney for Southern California Peter Nunez. “It’s beyond belief that dozens or hundreds or thousands of people would simultaneously decide that they should go to the U.S. and make this claim.”

Temporary asylum has a way of turning into “undocumented” permanent residency, because many never pursue the process but just disappear “into the shadows.”  It’s part of what Michelle Malkin correctly calls America’s Insane Asylum for Jihadists, Hustlers and Frauds

It’s all the more infuriating when we learn that families like the Romeikes, who applied for asylum to avoid real, not contrived, persecution for homeschooling, feel the full weight of Eric Holder’s selective enforcement of the immigration laws.

Those using this ploy, and those who coached them, evidence a complete disrespect for our national sovereignty.

This disrespect also has evidenced itself in the Obama administration’s unilateral implementation of a quasi-DREAM policy and non-removal process at the border. 

So much so, that Marco Rubio now is complaining that if a deal is not reached in Congress, Obama will unilaterally legalize all illegal immigrants, via Drew M. at Ace Of Spades HQ:

Marco Rubio: You Better Pass My Version Of Amnesty Before Obama Does It On His Own

Keep talking Marco, you make yourself look less and less presidential every time.

“I believe that this president tempted will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, to issue an executive order as he did for the Dream Act kids a year ago, where he basically legalizes 11 million people by the sign of a pen,” Rubio said in an interview Tuesday on WFLA’s “The Morning Show with Preston Scott.”If that were to happen, Rubio warned, Republicans would not get the provisions they have been fighting for in the immigration debate, such as billions of dollars to strengthen border security and a workplace “e-Verify” system to help ensure that employers do not hire undocumented workers.

“I have tried to come up as best as possible, given who controls the Senate, with a way to start the conversation to at least address some of these issues,” Rubio said. “It only gets worse as times goes on.”

Don’t tell me lawlessness has no consequences. It shapes behavior, including those supposedly opposed to lawlessness.

Marco,
Obama is ramming things through, and you and the gang of eight are helping him. Do you honestly think this administration will start enforcing any law they don’t like? Why do you want the democrats to get an advantage to win elections??? Do you think that by pushing through amnesty, Obama is going to like you, or that democrats will start voting for you?? It ain’t going to happen. Amnesty will be the end of the Republican Party.

Since when did this become an issue? I live in California. It’s not an issue. the loss of jobs this state has suffered, however, has had loads of people leaving this state. Along with jobs. And, “illegals” need to go to states that have jobs. Unlike a pie, nothing here distributes evenly.

Then, you also come up against language barriers. If you don’t hear Spanish spoken, you won’t see lots of illegals arriving.

Marco doesn’t stand a shot in 2016.

While I do believe Kerry is the closest democrat to the presidential nomination. (Because Hillary doesn’t have clout in DC. A mecca for liberals intent on keeping their close connections to government. You thought I was going to say parties? Lots of the DC folk are so old, now, by 9PM they’ve met bedtime.) Maybe, if we hung a bell around Henry Kissinger’s neck, you’d get a better idea.

The republican party also lags behind in terms of attracting new voters. Where are the new voters? Among the young, where there’s great distain for the social conservatives. And, among Hispanics. It’s possible the Hispanic communities (where, for instance, Cubans aren’t the same as El Salvadorans, for starters.)

And, white bread white men really won’t be attracting the numbers they need to win.

Are we far from the race right now? You bet. First we have to see what happens in 2014. Where will seats convert away from incumbents? (I dunno.)

So what is it that we keep on seeing? Oddly enough we’re letting the old media recycle what it wants, as if they’re gypsies who can read tea leaves.

    “If you don’t hear Spanish spoken, you won’t see lots of illegals arriving.”

    Your ignorance speaks volumes. Southern Indiana has problems with illegals.

La Raza is probably behind it, no doubt with the active aid and assistance of Obama minions in DHS. They were instrumental in the signing up of millions of illegal aliens for taxpayer-guaranteed mortgages, during the “no money down, no SS number or job needed, no questions asked” phase of the housing bubble.

Whenever there is another organized rip-off of U.S. taxpayers for the benefit of illegal aliens, La Raza usually has their dirty fingerprints all over it.

I think a more convincing statement would be: “I’m afraid for my family because of all the “Fast and Furious” guns given to the cartels by your Attorney General”

Why do you think La Raza left Zimmerman hanging out to dry?
They have a deal with the Administration on Amnesty and they cannot let a little thing like injustice fowl that up.

Amnesty will be the end of America. Import a bunch of non-Americans who aren’t interesting in being Americans and the country soon will no longer be America.

We are watching, in real time, the destruction of our country. And the only party that could do something about it is more than happy to facilitate it.

Orchestrated by somebody? Golly gee, I wonder who? Could it be the same administration that spends millions of our tax dollars advertising US welfare systems to Mexicans in Mexico?

Heck, why do we still have a Congress, why is Dingy Harry still talking about the need for the GOP to bow down to Obama’s every wish and desire?

Can’t our exalted el Presidente simply issue another edict to legalize all those millions of Mexicans who wish to vote for continued free money, free phones, and free housing, plus of course for those who desire to give all that free stuff to them?

Heck, if the Obamacare Act enables Obama to enable as he wishes, what’s to stop him from doing what he needs to do, when he wants it done?

Besides, there’ll be no articles of Impeachment coming under the leadership of Speaker Boehner, not in our lifetimes. So, maybe we all should just sit back and enjoy whatever anyone wishes to say about our current society.

Either that, or we fight like hell, in a peaceful and dignified manner, of course, until this president is replaced on January 20, 2017, with an American President. We cannot give an inch to this sorry excuse of a president and his rotten administration on any issue except when it is to the advantage of the country. So, maybe Rove is correct on his thesis and it should be applied to immigration too.

In the bigger picture, there is absolutely no reason to compromise on legislation with an administration that repeatedly waives or ignores laws and bill components it doesn’t like. If the GOP were to compromise on anything, what stops the Obama administration from simply reneging on any compromise agreement after the bill is passed and signed?

1) Compromise on NOTHING.

2) Work for stalemate at the federal level.

3) Work to take the US Senate in 2014.

4) Work to expand the House majority in 2014.

5) Take the White House in 2016.

Do anything else and it’s bye-bye America.

    Sounds like trying to reach a serious negotiation with Palestinian leadership thugs. If something they might “agree” to – when speaking English – becomes not convenient to comply with, okay with them to simply declare it inapplicable.

      Henry Hawkins in reply to Disco Stu_. | August 13, 2013 at 7:51 pm

      There is no negotiating with the Palestinians, nor anyone else who measures the progress of their agenda in centuries.

    Take the Senate? Take the White House? For what, so another Republican can waffle, hedge and bow to and enable the leftists who try to shame and Alinsky them?

    The GOP will continue to fight against the Tea Party and Conservative healthy policies and practices.

    I’ve resigned from the GOP because of Rubio, McCain and Graham and their falseness and follies.

“Lawless” is the term that applies to the Senate, Rubio, McRino etc.

The foxes are in charge of our hen house..

now parse this into the NBC research….

When someone changes course to such a degree there is a reason. There is dirt on this guy he does not want known.
Who needs the NSA when you have a boy billionaire in your camp to dish the dirt to marginalize? Not making excuses he chose his path, it no longer includes those who brought him to the dance. It is what it is. One term and DONE.

It’s corrosive to the national soul for the people’s elected representatives to change laws to meet the demands of foreign nationals who broke those laws, and waive the punishment — against the wishes and best interests of the citizens who put those politicians in office. Do citizens get to have penalties waived and laws rewritten because they don’t like laws they’ve broken?

It beats my why some conservatives who think they’re righteous don’t see how immoral the amnesty concept is, and how questionable the civic virtue of all those who entered the country illegally and then demand that we the citizens change our country for their benefit.

Rubio is a schumck. He’s John McCain, only younger.
