Posted on 11/21/14 at 10:27 am in response to Twin Cities immigrant community welcomes Obama's action

"Immigrant communities in general want to see that there are benefits for families who have been here for a long time...”

Let that soak in for a minute.

Posted on 11/21/14 at 09:30 am in response to Obama’s immigration maneuver: This isn’t how it’s supposed to work

The elephant in the room, or on the border, is the tens of thousands of people that are already on their way North from every Central American country, assured of the warm welcome they think Obama has just extended them.

And although he's smarter than Gruber and won't admit it, he did tacitly extend such a welcome.

This is as cynical and self-serving an act as any President ever contemplated, much less carried out. And we can only hope that border states, such as Texas, can...

"it is a win for Obama" Just so.

Oath of Office, and will of the people be damned...

Allow me to quote Andrew McCarthy, who succinctly sums it up:

"[Obama] is claiming not only the power to determine what immigration laws get enforced and which illegal immigrants get prosecuted — power he unquestionably has. He also claims the power to declare (a) that criminal acts are somehow lawful — that illegal aliens now have a right to be here — just because Obama has chosen not to prosecute them; and (b) that those who engage in this unprosecuted activity will be rewarded with...

I challenge you to identify where McCarthy's version has gone astray of Obama's verbatim speech.

"the most common crime associated with illegal immigration is likely improper entry. Under federal criminal law, it is misdemeanor for an alien (i.e., a non-citizen) to:

•Enter or attempt to enter the United States at any time or place other than designated by immigration officers;

•Elude examination or inspection by immigration officers; or

•Attempt to enter or obtain entry to the United States by willfully concealing, falsifying, or misrepresenting material facts....

48% of American citizens are in a high dudgeon over the President's order.

LOL! You're making the same argument Obama is making...We're not going to prosecute it, therefore it's not a crime. Unbelievable!

The vast, overwhelming majority of the people Obama is using as his pawns in this debacle entered into this country illegally. They are guilty of a crime. Despite your "meaning of 'is'" defense, you were mistaken. Those are the facts.
