550,000 ILLEGAL aliens get two year extension

Unions must just love this. Maybe they have it better on government assistance than they do working.

 

snip-

President Barack Obama is renewing his two-year amnesty for at  least 550,000 younger illegal immigrants, and is rolling back education  requirements and anti-fraud measures.

“Obama’s extension of his unilaterally-created immigration program  not only violates his constitutional duty to enforce the law, but the changes he  made to it proactively invite fraud and abuse,” said a June 5 statement by Rep. Bob  Goodlatte, the chairman of the House judiciary committee.

“By loosening the education standards, potentially millions more  unlawful immigrants who do not meet even basic educational requirements will be  able to apply for the [amnesty] program,” he said.

Goodlatte, however, did not criticize the administration for  disadvantaging U.S. workers. In fact, he has pushed a House bill that would  allow companies to employ 750,000 foreign workers during each  year in the food sector. So far, his guest-worker bill has not moved because GOP  leaders are blocking the Senate’s June immigration bill, which would double the  annual inflow of almost 2 million immigrants and guest-workers.

Obama announced his amnesty program in June 2012, shortly before  the 2012 election. Under the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” Obama directed officials to stop applying immigration law against younger  illegals who don’t commit major crimes, and to award work permits to those  illegals.

So far, the amnesty has been used by at least 520,000 illegals to win  two-year residency and work permits. That quantity of foreign workers is more  than all jobs created in April and  May.

Obama’s renewed amnesty announcement comes at the start of summer,  when roughly 4 million Americans graduate from high-schools or colleges and  search for decent jobs.

Younger Americans are the least likely to be be employed in the  slack economy, partly because they face competition from each other, plus  roughly 600,000 working-age immigrants and 800,000 guest-workers each year.

The inflow has added 10 million guest workers and 12 million immigrants to the economy  from 2000 to 2013.

Nationally, the percentage of the 156 million Americans aged 16 to  65 with full-time jobs has dropped to 62.8 percent. That’s down from 65.7  percent in 2009. Today’s level is the same as in 1978, when Jimmy Carter  was president and relatively few women chose to work.

For more than two decades, the immigration-boosted surplus of labor in the economy has frozen Americans’ wages and boosted investors’ profits to record highs. The trend shrinks the GOP-leaning middle-class and expands the number of  Democratic-leaning people dependent on government.

Is Bama Spartacus????

Instead of leading a slave revolt, he is orchestrating a takeover of the USA by empowering as many "illegals" as possible to be inside the USA borders and diluting the votes of bonafide American citizens. At some point, even the most diehard  American liberal communist will have to scratch their head and wonder what the future holds with a no-border America.

 

Of course for rich guys like Shifty that hate the fruits of capitalism, it will be no great loss. Neither for Nuts who will get to see everyone reduced to serfdom.

Re: Rich guys like shifty

didn't get that way by whining about someone else getting an unfair advantage. I wasn't always this brilliant. It took a while to cure my addiction to shiney green paint. When the focus changed to land accumulation and paying for it was the crossroads that changed the progression.

 

You probably did some of that too. maybe more than I did. One can be somewhat amazed with what you can accomplish if you change your focus. Don't sit around and wait for the folks to die. Get up and build your own wealth via wits and ambition. Most important is to discover your objective and focus upon it. Discipline is the most important word in our vocabulary. It's ok, you are most welcome!

I took a different course of action...I farmed with junk for twenty years and just started buying shiny new paint lately with the $8 corn bonanza.

 

I almost have to pinch myself when I go inside the machine sheds and see what Obama has bequeathed to me, cause I know that I sure didn't do that.

 

Bama poured the cement for me during my manual labor years, too, and probably guided me through the ranks in my construction business, too.

 

I think he took the tests for me in college, too. That Bama is almost like God.

That may be a trip wire that most right wingers will never see. I don't know many liberals or Democrats or whatever you want to call them who are all that enamored with him or who particularilly like his style or demeanor. That coupled with the massive number of actual progressives who are incensed over his centrist if not actual right leaning positions on a rather substantial number of important matters and you won't find a lot of people who would go to war for him politically. But as a matter of decency and also as the only alternative to a right wing agenda that is a vile hybrid of greed and avarice, extreme hate based religious fundamentalism and smug personal self defined exceptional ism he's all they've currently got. I sincerely believe that the far right misses that point. Can't see themselves in that light.

They just don't get it, Bruce. MUch of the support of Obama and Clinton is built off the outrageous treatment they received from the christian right.  The atrocious and ongoing behavior of the right is exactly what invigorates the defenses for our guys?

 

Nobody deserves that kind of treatment from supposed political colleages. The election is supposed to be over and the premise is to work together rather than to totally politically annialate the opposition. The country cannot afford these perpetual political wars where the objective is to stop all progress. The shut the government down strategy is fool hardy.

 

The public will respond when the grow weary of the antigovernment crowd.

Meanwhile over 500,000 ILLEGALS get a two year extension and we are turning our military bases into orphanages for ILLEGAL alien children pouring across an open border. We load them up and dump them at the Greyhound bus station.

You could try to get it right. That is if you had an ounce of honesty in you. MOst of these children are from  honduras guatamala and that region of central america. Children as young as five are making the trip escaping the peril to their lives in the region where brutality and sexual assault is a strong probability.

 

I suppose you would refuse them sanctuary because you beleive that is the christian thing to do. And you blame Obama as he is the one that instigated the poverty and brutality in that region. Your hatred has sickened you and you need help badly.
