Creating New Democrats Through Immigration
And using your tax dollars to do it.
Obama’s immigration plan has been criticized by many conservatives as nothing more than a plan to create new voters for the Democratic Party. If that’s true, which is likely, what could be worse?
How about using taxpayer funds to do it?
Daniel Wiser of the Washington Free Beacon reports:
Taxpayer-Funded Immigrant Advocacy Group Blasts Republicans
An immigrant advocacy group that receives taxpayer funding condemned Republicans on Sunday and encouraged undocumented residents seeking deportation relief to solicit political support from young voters.
The New York Times reported that groups including the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) hosted an information session for about 5,000 unauthorized immigrants at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Immigrants received assessments about whether they would be among the millions who could qualify for three-year deportation deferrals and work permits under President Obama’s executive order.
The event was also explicitly political in nature. CHIRLA executive director Angelica Salas reportedly blasted Republicans for “getting in the way of immigration reform.” A slide show presented during orientation for the session featured unflattering pictures of House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.).
Isn’t it a bit unethical to use tax dollars provided by some Americans who are presumably Republicans to advance the cause of the Democratic Party?
As Noah Rothman of Hot Air notes, the mask has slipped:
Immigration activists stop pretending it’s not about more Democratic voters
Americans do not support President Barack Obama’s executive actions which are designed to create legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. Not only do the president’s actions fail to accomplish any of the reform-minded goals above, but they also do not enjoy the consent of the legislature. The most tenuous and contentious arguments made by opponents of Obama’s immigration, however, is the claim that extending legal status to millions of illegal immigrants is aimed at eventually creating a class of new Democratic voters.
Citing the New York Times, Rothman highlights this passage:
Joshua Hoyt, the executive director of the National Partnership for New Americans, said groups gathered here were laying plans to sign up at least 500,000 immigrants for the president’s program. Advocates also appealed to immigrants here illegally who cannot vote to contact people who can.
“All those children are going to be voters,” Ms. Salas said, “and those voters are going to remember who stood with their dad and their mom.”
Will the children of said immigrants remember who paid for it?

to the full extent allowed by law.
If it had been a TEA party affiliated group, you can be sure that the IRS and other regime related organizations would be crawling up their rectal orifices.
When were these guys concerned with ethics?
This is treason, straight up.
It needs to be stopped.
I’m writing a letter to Boehner right now! He will put a stop to this.
I’m sure that he could fit your request in between tanning sessions..
CHIRLA got a $250,000 grant this year from US Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS), a department of Homeland Security. USCIS kicks out grants through the US Citizenship and Integration Grant Program. This program was set up the minute the Obama administration took office. It’s a slush fund for political allies assisting Obama in the pro-amnesty cause. Since inception in 2009, over $43 million has been dispensed to hundreds of orgs related to the pro-amnesty cause.
The Global Swarming crisis is right at our back door!
Global Swarming is caused by anthropogenic carbon migration. It threatens to raise the corruption in America by 20 to 40 million over the next few years.
If ever an area cried out for a minefield …
You’d just drive the cost up, since ScamWOW would have to air-lift them in….
The US/Mexican border is ideal for drone use.
January 20, 2017 will inevitably come. If a Republican president comes with it, let us all remember that with “a pen and a phone”, that new president can sweep away all of Obama’s executive orders and reverse them. Absent congressional statutory protection, those this president protects can become unprotected, something they should keep in mind before embracing what this president does by executive order. So many of Obama’s actions now, such as on “climate change”, go beyond the end of his term, that you have to wonder if he realizes how easily, without statutory authorization, it can all be rolled back in just about 25 months from now. The current president seems determined to ignore the wave election that just occurred, if he continues to do so, there may be a tidal wave election in just two years as he, a gift to the GOP, destroys his party leaving it with only far left extreme liberals in it.
there may be a tidal wave election in just two years as he, a gift to the GOP, destroys his party leaving it with only far left extreme liberals in it.
Don’t get cocky. There COULD be a tidal wave election drowning the Democrats, but it’s unlikely unless the Republicans wake up, figure out some goals and principles, and commence campaigning on how they’d govern differently than the current crooked Chicago-politics crowd.
Until the Republicans figure out how to frame the 2016 campaign, they’ll have fierce competition from panicked Democrats who’ll all promise to right the Obama wrongs, whatever their real intent for governing might be.
The Republican leaders obviously have no objections to amnesty for illegals; they just would prefer to have their own signatures on it. It’s very unlikely that they want to be known as the meanies who repealed Obama’s shamesty.
Now that the Republican leaders have demonstrated that the message they’re taking from the last election is they need to “show they can govern” (i.e. give Democrats what they want), and they’re apparently hoping that Jeb Bush will step up and crush the conservatives, they’re persuading more voters to believe that it doesn’t much matter whether Democrats or Republicans are running the show. That view as becoming more plausible by the day.
Hopefully, the rumor that the House speaker John Boehner is planning his exit tactic from Capitol Hill when the 113th Congress draws to a close later this year. America needs strong, politicians, not weak-kneed cowards who pass a 1.1 Trillion dollar Spending bill, without demanding to read the 1600 pages of it. As I see the only uncorrupted politicians who stood alone against this pork bloated bill was Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-KY) who spoke their mind and did everything in their power to stop this disgusting Senate bill, to not seeing the light of day.
Included are major amendments as to weaken Dodd-Frank banking bill, which reverses some strong provisions in restricting bank trading in potentially lethal derivatives that involves the mega banks such as Citibank. Yet Democrat Jim Himes, the architect of the Dodd-Frank Act backed the banking industry’s toxic 300 TRILLION in derivative investments of taxpayer money that has been mostly rescinded in the bill. The other key component is King Obama’s executive action, to illegally grant a free ride to 5 million or more illegal aliens.
Lawmakers have nothing to lose it doesn’t cause them any personal problems. But the average American has to deal with daily invasion, specifically on the unrestrained Southern border. Border Patrol agent’s hands are tied by their supervisor’s orders, directed from the White House. The invaders come everyday, exhausting the low paid jobs that 92 M poor Americans must combat. Not just the jobs are stolen by illegal aliens, but honest employers bidding on a job cannot win against his name sake that uses cheap labor.
E-Verify is laughable, because audits cannot be productive with only 5000 ICE agent to cover the U.S. For those critics who say illegal aliens don’t collect welfare, that’s a crummy lie. Each US born American child of an Illegal Alien can collect in child tax reimbursement at least a $1.000.00 a month. As of today illegal alien moms and dead beat Americans are costing taxpayers $6 Billion a year, much of it fraudulent and the IRS keep sending out the checks thanks to Sen. Harry Reid’s refusal to let the Fed Treasury investigate.
Americans expected the Republican annihilation of anything that smelled of a blanket amnesty. But it never happened even after a pledge by House Speaker John Boehner, R-OH, and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY. But now the challenge to block Obama’s executive amnesty is promised in the New Year. However, can we trust them any of them, after the last minute rush to pass the Trillion dollars plus bill, when the reason in escaping Washington on a long furlough before Christmas It was carnival full of sad jokers who played along with King Obama of everything he wanted, no matter the will of the people?
Sen. Ted Cruz had informed a radio program, “I’ll vote no to any kind of 1600-page bill that I’m given at the last minute that we don’t have time to read. It’s an abomination, nobody should support a Congress that stuffs all the spending into one bill, nobody reads it, there are no reforms, no amendments, and it really is probably why Congress has about a 10% approval rate because this is not doing our job,”
And of course Ted Cruz was right, along with Mike Lee, as Obama’s executive action entered in the bill is ready to be signed by our DeFacto dictator. Now all patriotic people are watching and listening to see if these pathetic well-heeled Republicans are actual ready carry out their word of honor? Trouble is most American doesn’t see it that way, as both Democrats and Republicans have been brought by corporate interests and a long list of lobbyists on K Street. Liberal Democrats are on a different track; looking for those valuable votes—illegal or legal, radical minority groups, unions, environmentalists and liberal millionaires.
Money is their commodity that comes with the political territory, as it governs the favors of paying for the politician’s campaign chests. The donors pay for television commercials, the banquets, and foreign conferences tagging along with the family and anything money can buy. It’s a corrupt system and only by changing the system to a fair and equal means will the corruption end. Only by public financing as European democracies run their elections can we expect change. Until then the corruption will continue, especially among the career godfathers;
What their money contributors want is access to the political policies, to amend or alter in their favor—and they do, by buying the lawmakers.
Now you have been sold out by this President and 99 percent of the politico’s and we will be ready with our votes to remove all corrupt politicians from office in 2016 who voted for his anti-middle class agenda. Here is the phone Numbers and Mailing Addresses of Members of Congress at: http://www.contactingthecongress.org/ or http://www.usa.gov/Contact/US-Congress.shtml/ The TEA PARTY members are urged to pick-up the phone. US Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121; (the toll free number is 1- 866-220-0044) and join other conservatives who are committed to flood the phone lines on Capitol Hill with this simple message.
I can’t agree with the thrust of this article. If the currently-illegal immigrants have children in the US, those kids will be able to vote regardless of the recent executive orders. This is going to remain true, since it is highly unlikely that we will be able to (or want to) keep illegals out of the country when we need them so badly (for migrant labor).
Furthermore, if the parents remain illegal (and thus poor), then it will be even more likely that their kids will be poor, and thus more likely they will vote for Democrats. On the other hand, if current illegal immigrants are made citizens, they will have the opportunity to become more wealthy and thus more likely to vote Republican.
Basically, what I am saying is that this article may in fact be exactly wrong in its conclusions.
Well, this is kinda good…
It isn’t the war, but it is a battle…
Not only did Obama not repel the invasion, but he actually provided an incentive for it. The government of Mexico aided and abetted their transfer. Domestic “minority” interests are aiding and abetting their integration.
Obama adheres to a DRAT (Displace, Replace, Abort, and Tax) policy. Americans needs to visit their local Planned Parenthood in order to assure available space for the invaders.
That said, the automatic grant of “natural born” status to invaders’ children violates the spirit, language, and integrity of the constitution and its jurisdiction. This suicidal interpretation enables an invading army to conquer America through reproduction. Then there is the unprincipled, degenerate “pro-choice” (or selective) policy to recognize human rights. Premeditated murder of around 2 million Americans annually has consequences.
We have a traitor in the White House, and corrupt, complicit cowards running the GOP.
Our only hope for salvation is Ted Cruz and the Tea Party.
This is Axiom #1 and right out of the Democratic playbook.
“Spread cost of expensive partisan program to your political enemies while generating political support for yourself and your friends.”
If you look at EVERY SINGLE PROGRAM that Obama has introduced and/or rammed through it aligns with Axiom #1.
