On the White House website, it says “It is time to act to fix the broken immigration system in a way that requires responsibility from everyone…and guarantees that everyone is playing by the same rules.”
The problem is that there are those that Obama feels obliged to advocate for who have no intention of playing by the rules.
Way back in 2009, the first project Mr. Fix-It set about repairing was the broken job market, and did so by spending a stimulating amount of money. The end result was fewer jobs and $800 billion more in debt.
Barack Obama also fixed the US healthcare system. That endeavor turned out well too – so well that even Max Baucus (D-Montana), who helped draft the bill, called that repair job nothing short of a “huge train wreck.”
Next up on the agenda – Barack Obama wants to fix immigration by attempting to convince a guarded nation to submit to granting amnesty to millions of strangers based on the premise that:
Immigration makes us stronger. It keeps us vibrant, it keeps us hungry, it keeps us prosperous. It’s part of what makes this such a dynamic country. And if we want to keep attracting the best and the brightest we have to offer, we have to do a better job of welcoming them.
Barack Obama’s ‘welcoming fix’ includes things like preventing immigration agents from doing their jobs and distributing taxpayer-funded entitlements and free healthcare to illegals, and like the liberal Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick, handing illegal immigrants tuition breaks.
So committed to his vision for immigration reform is Mr. Fix-It that he has even publicly demeaned the governor of Arizona for attempting to protect the people of her state from complications that often arise from illegal infiltration. Then he sued the state for enacting self-protective immigration law. After being victimized by what Jan Brewer is trying to prevent, Boston might now understand why the diminutive Arizona governor wagged her finger in Barack Obama’s face.
Nonetheless, in hopes of neutralizing the negative connotations associated with illegal immigration, Obama says things like:
We focus our enforcement on people who genuinely pose a threat to our communities, not to hardworking families who are minding their own business and oftentimes have members of their family who are US citizens. … what we’ve tried to do then is focus our attention on real threats, and make sure that families are not the targets.
The problem is that while Obama busily fixes our immigration system, America is finding out the hard way that, despite what he says, there are even legalized immigrants in our midst “who genuinely [do not appear to] a pose a threat to our communities” – but really they do.
Americans are also finding out that baby-faced immigrants who appear to be “minding their own business” are, in some cases, “real threats.”
Some of these people are biding their time with likeminded relatives, boxing and tweeting while concocting a plan to inflict harm. Meanwhile, Obama is spending more time accusing Americans of xenophobia than he is tracking down radicalized immigrants hunkering down in US cities.
