White House: By the way, we’re still planning an amnesty this summer for illegals who are already here

posted at 5:21 pm on July 16, 2014 by Allahpundit

Gotta hand it to ‘em: They’re all-in on the immigration mega-pander. The prudent thing to do before the midterms would be to focus on stopping the border crisis, to “prove” that Obama’s serious about enforcement before a new push at comprehensive reform next year, and then do some sort of very limited amnesty to show immigration activists that O’s on their side with the promise of more to come after the current uproar has quieted down.

Instead you’ve got Harry Reid mumbling about the border being secure, Pelosi doing her “won’t somebody think of the children?” shtick, and now Obama’s inner circle whispering that it’s full speed ahead on DACA 2.0. And not only do they still intend to go forward, apparently they’re going to tell the public that they’re doing it because of the border crisis. Turns out a massive influx of illegals requires us to … effectively amnestize many other illegals.

Imagine that.

In the days leading up to the Rose Garden speech [on June 30th], there were discussions in the West Wing about the impact that the border crisis might have on the president’s promise to use his executive authority. White House officials said they decided that while the border emergency presented a considerable public relations problem, it should not get in the way of action later this summer. In the weeks since those meetings, the crisis in the Rio Grande Valley along the border has ballooned into round-the-clock cable television fare and constant fodder for Mr. Obama’s opponents in Congress.

“Republicans have decided to use the Rio Grande as a reason not to do immigration reform. We won’t,” said Jennifer Palmieri, the White House communications director. “Our belief is that now, more than ever, the American people see immigration as an urgent issue and want the administration to act to address the problem of a broken system.”

White House officials, without providing specifics, said the most likely executive actions that Mr. Obama will announce at the end of the summer were consistent with the administration’s efforts to move away from deporting unauthorized immigrants who have been in the country for years and have not otherwise broken the law.

Officials said the current crisis on the border fit that approach. By shifting resources away from long-established families, they said, law enforcement can better focus on processing the asylum claims of recent immigrants and deporting those who do not qualify to stay in the United States — a rationale that Peter J. Spiro, an immigration specialist at Temple University Law School, said had long been the basis of the nation’s current immigration system.

We need to forget about deporting illegal immigrants who’ve been here for years so that we can focus on deporting illegals who’ve just gotten here, whom Democrats … also don’t want to deport. Maybe that’s why Pelosi and Reid are suddenly interested in blocking changes to the 2008 child-trafficking law. Republicans won’t agree to give O the $3.7 billion he asked for unless Democrats agree to change that statute — but maybe it’s better politically for Obama at this point if he doesn’t get the money. Then he can say, since he’s forced to make due with the immigration enforcement assets he already has, that he has no choice but to issue a moratorium on deportations for everyone who’s already here and focus instead on ending the border crisis. And if he’s going to take unilateral action on amnesty, maybe for political reasons he’d prefer to take unilateral action on deporting kids from Central America too, without a congressional fix to the child-trafficking law. (The NYT story quoted above says the White House is looking at what he can do with executive action to speed up the deportations.) It’ll be easier to sell one to the public if you can package it with the other. And if immigration activists get mad at him, that’s okay. He’s a lame duck; as long as they’re not mad at congressional Dems, who are in full pander mode right now, he’s fine with it.

But what about the public generally? New from Pew:

p

Majorities of Republicans and independents want deportations of young illegals sped up, and even Democrats are narrowly split. That’s why O might take executive action even if Reid and Pelosi oppose changing the statute. But before you celebrate Democrats losing the battle of public opinion, click the Pew link and look at the second data set on the page. Even now, 54 percent of Republicans and 70 percent of independents think illegals who are already here should have some mechanism for staying in the U.S. legally. A mass amnesty may not be the political loser it feels like at the moment given all the attention being paid to the border crisis. In fact, if O goes ahead with it, Democrats may end up as political winners this fall even if they lose the Senate. Depending upon how narrow the GOP’s margin is at the polls and how large immigration looms at the time, it may be that an executive amnesty doesn’t much hurt the Democrats at all. They might end up with fewer than 50 seats, but everyone expected that anyway. The fear in the White House is that doing something aggressive on immigration will lead to a GOP rout; if Obama goes ahead with it and the rout doesn’t happen, the takeaway will be that the public’s more complacent about amnesty these days than it used to be. Which means, against all odds, comprehensive immigration reform might be back on the table next year.

Via the Corner, here’s Joe Biden inadvertently admitting that Obama’s failed to bring about the “change” he promised in 2008. For now, perhaps.

Raises the stakes — referendum on immigration

Obama really wants a civil war apparently. Americans aren’t going to sit back and let him give amnesty to 5 million illegal aliens who invaded our country, especially knowing that the worthless $%#t is allowing 95% of these “unaccompanied children” saty under the guise of “asylum.”

The fact that Mexico and Guatemala-Belize are issuing 72 hour passes to transit Mexico and illegally invade the USA should be all over the news.

Obama gave his blessing for that and is likely encouraging the UN to declare these illegals to be “refugees.”

He has fundamentally destroyed our once great nation.

Perry sure got quiet after his little tete a tete with Obama

They must have discovered they both like anchovies on their pizza

Meanwhile the ‘children’ are mainly teenage or older males. Which makes them voting age in 2016.

What the GOP voter wants and what the GOP leadership want are two different things.

If the illegal surge enrages voters against Obama, the RINOs might gain a bit in the coming election, despite the fact the public hates them.

But if the illegal teen voters get to stay, they will dilute the Tea Party rebellion, which is going to be even bigger in 2016, then in the coming election, because the GOP leadership refused to heed public outrage

By not rabidly denouncing the surge in Congress, the GOP leadership is signalling approval of the surge

They can utilize this illegal voting bloc in the 2016 GOP presidential primary, exactly as they played Thad Cochran, with crossovers.

Illegals will vote for whoever does not want to deport them

I dont think the RINOs are afraid to act. It may be they are afraid someone will stop the flow

NAFTA train:

Americans have been aghast at the sight of unending waves of people, ranging in age from babes in arms to tough tattooed teenage young men. The trip north is no joyride, riding on the top of moving freight Train of Death3b cars for hundreds of miles, preyed on by bandits. Those who take this harrowing trip call it La Bestia (the Beast) or the Train of Death.

How were these desperately poor people able to travel the distance of over a thousand miles from their homes in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to the U.S. border?

The answer, apparently, is that they were allowed to hitch a ride on the NAFTA train that is owned and operated by an American company traded on the New York Stock Exchange, Kansas City Southern Inc.

NAFTA train:

Do you remember when President George W. Bush, in 2005, held a summit meeting with the “three amigos” to promote the free movement of people and goods across our borders with Canada and Mexico? The Council on Foreign Relations then spoke of “building a North American community” with a common “security perimeter” and “labor mobility” among our three countries.

Texas planned to build a massive North American Free Trade Agreement superhighway that would begin at its southern border with Mexico and eventually reach northern U.S. cities. The Kansas City Southern Railway bought a Mexican railroad and began branding it as the NAFTA railroad, with the goal of carrying Chinese products from Mexico’s Pacific Port of Lazaro Cardenas all the way to Kansas City, Missouri.

The prospect of an economic union with Mexico, which could eventually become a North American Union modeled on the European Union, rightly alarmed many Americans. Texas Gov. Rick Perry was forced to abandon his NAFTA superhighway, and President Barack Obama quietly removed Bush’s Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America from the White House website.

But the NAFTA railroad, now called the Kansas City Southern de Mexico, is up and running. Thanks to the exclusive reporting of Dr. Jerome Corsi at WorldNetDaily, we learn that this train is now playing a major role in bringing tens of thousands of young Central American immigrants into our country illegally.

Sept. ’07:

An important acquisition announced this month by Canadian Pacific positions the railroad to be North America’s first continental NAFTA super-railway, connecting Canada with Mexico through the heart of the U.S., roughly parallel to Interstate 35.

Perhaps even more important, through the Knoche Yard and the connection with KCS [Kansas City Southern], the acquisition allows CP to reach all the way down to the Mexican ports of Manzanillo and Lazaro Cardenas on the Pacific.

On Jan. 1, 2005, KCS took control of the Texas Mexican Railway Company and the U.S. portion of the International Bridge in Laredo, Texas.

Then in April 2005, KCS purchased the controlling interests in Transportacion Ferroviaria Mexicana, or TFM, which KCS promptly renamed the Kansas City Southern de Mexico, or KCSM.

After the acquisition, the Canadian Pacific arguably is the first truly North American continental railroad, positioned not only for NAFTA trade but for a large market share of the millions of containers WND has documented are positioned for the North American marketplace under World Trade Organization agreements.

In the same article, WND reported Kansas City has declared itself to be an “inland port,” planning to house a Mexican customs office in the heart of the city, positioned to be a main terminal for Chinese containers coming north into the U.S. from Manzanillo and Lazaro Cardenas.

WND also reported Mexican government websites which have announced the plan to extend the Trans-Texas Corridor south in what government officials in Mexico are calling a “Trans North America Corridor.”

Most Americans have ignored a big player in the “immigration crisis” on America’s southern border. But today Jerome R. Corsi at WND reminded his readers of that player. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has done as much as, or more than, the de facto President in bringing illegal aliens by the trainload – literally – to American soil. And lately the American company that means “NAFTA Railroad” now faces criminal charges – in Mexico.

Prosecutors in southern Mexico have filed a criminal complaint alleging railway companies or their employees have been complicit in crimes committed against migrants who ride their trains.

Luis Angel Bravo, the attorney general of the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, said he filed a complaint with federal prosecutors against Ferrosur, a Mexican rail line, and a subsidiary of the U.S. railway Kansas City Southern.

Migrants from Central America hop aboard trains in the southern states of Oaxaca and Veracruz to reach the U.S. border, but they are frequently beaten, robbed or kidnapped by criminal gangs once aboard.

Bravo said Monday that he filed the complaint after migrants claimed the trains make unscheduled stops that allow criminals to climb aboard.

“The operating personnel of the railway companies aid, abet and help in the commission of various crimes, like robbery, injury, human trafficking and extortion,” Bravo’s office said in a statement.

First (July 10):

Officials from the U.S., Mexico and Central American nations began a two-day meeting in Nicaragua on Thursday at which they are expected to discuss the possibility of treating Central American migrants fleeing violence in their homelands as refugees.

Migration and interior department representatives who met at a hotel in Managua declined to discuss the meeting’s first day.

The agenda focuses on updating a 30-year-old declaration regarding the obligations that nations have to aid refugees.

davidk on July 16, 2014 at 8:43 PM

Then:

Mexico and Guatemala have reached an agreement that is intended to make it easier and safer for Central Americans, including unaccompanied minors, to enter the United States illegally.

Though largely unreported in the U.S. mainstream media, the two nations agreed on July 7, in a presidential-level meeting in Mexico, to make it legal and safe for Central American immigrants, including unaccompanied minors, to cross Mexico’s border with Guatemala and transit Mexico en route to the U.S. border at the Rio Grande.

The agreement apparently does not recognize that the result of such trips – entry into the United States – remains illegal.

But to facilitate the program, the Mexican government announced plans to issue a new “Regional Visitor Card” that will provide documentation for the Central Americans to remain in Mexico as long as it takes to get to the United States.

While such a resolution would lack any legal weight, the agency said it believes “the U.S. and Mexico should recognize that this is a refugee situation, which implies that they shouldn’t be automatically sent to their home countries but rather receive international protection.”

Its always political.
In the case of spreading the kids all over the country and trying to buy a resort this is also more in your face style of taunting.
If the regime can get enough conservatives to go crazy enough, start trouble they can not only bring up the big guns in waiting but make the issue our responding instead of the op itself. It gets all the heavy weight of the regime and back on to us. It hasn’t worked yet but they will keep taunting us until it does.

LOL. Yes, “international protection” meaning that they get to live in the United States and be supported by U.S. taxpayers for the rest of their lives.

How very “international” of Mexico. Like the pope, they’re so very generous and compassionate when it comes to giving away our sovereignty, money, and other resources.

Instead of just providing illegal aliens with a 72-hour-only pathway into our country, why don’t they open up their country — and their taxpayers’ wallets — and take in a few hundred thousands of these precious “refugees” themselves?

What a layer cake of bullsh*t. But it’s all you need to know. “Our belief is that…the American people see…”

Translation: “Regardless of the actual facts, regardless of majority value systems, financial cost, public outcry or future calamity, we are going to do mindlessly evil sh*t, because it’s progress, and everyone who doesn’t agree is clearly too stupid to know any better, and needs to be dragged, or ultimately forced, to join us. And even though what we’re doing goes against basic common sense, reason, historical precedent and probably the LAW, it doesn’t really matter. Our supporters, who should otherwise know better, have drunk so much lefty koolaid their piss alone does all the talking for us. Besides, they’re terrified that dissent will make them look hopelessly uncool on social media. So there’s no stopping us. We won we won we won. FU.”

Their own countries are eager be rid of the responsibility in caring for them, the invaders dream on cashing in on the Dream Act of riches whre they get to be tbne anchors to bring even more of their families here, and they get to send back money to family still in the home countries from our generous financial support once their settle in the USA.

Mexico ain’t giving them anything, but that 72 hour pathway which will also give Mexicans the opportunity to have some fun and profit in robbing, beating, molesting and raping the invaders along the way.

hawkeye54 on July 16, 2014 at 10:57 PM

“LOL. Yes, “international protection” meaning that they get to live in the United States and be supported by U.S. taxpayers for the rest of their lives.

How very “international” of Mexico. Like the pope, they’re so very generous and compassionate when it comes to giving away our sovereignty, money, and other resources.

Instead of just providing illegal aliens with a 72-hour-only pathway into our country, why don’t they open up their country — and their taxpayers’ wallets — and take in a few hundred thousands of these precious “refugees” themselves?

AZCoyote on July 16, 2014 at 10:20 PM”

I guess that, somehow, that would be “RACIST.”
Besides, Mexico lets them hop onto “Death Trains” as long as they pay the bribes to the Drug Cartels, Smugglers, and Mexican Police. In the US, the bribes are paid for by the US Chamber of Commerce, La Raza, and the Democrat Party.
Mexico is just flushing their toilets and letting all the crap flow northward. Why wouldn’t they? They have an entire nation of idiots in El Norte willing spend endless taxpayer dollars on the
“international protection” of people they would NEVER allow to remain in their country under any circumstances.

If the regime can get enough conservatives to go crazy enough, start trouble they can not only bring up the big guns in waiting but make the issue our responding instead of the op itself. It gets all the heavy weight of the regime and back on to us. It hasn’t worked yet but they will keep taunting us until it does.
these guys are the most prolific political strategist ever. They are the best that the communists party has or has ever had and are the products of generations of thought on how to take us down from the inside out. They do it all right out in the open and dare anyone to oppose them.
Sary at best.

rodguy911 on July 16, 2014 at 9:04 PM

A fair point, and yet… what? It’s a great plan, if that is it, because our choices are… what? Buy in and start something, or don’t and… just roll over and let them destroy us anyway?

We’re getting Honduras, Guatamala, and El Salvador now.

Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama next…

.. then on to COLOMBIA, Ecuador, and VENEZUELA.

The prudent thing to do before the midterms would be to focus on stopping the border crisis

Team O doesn’t seemed that concerned about being trounced in the midterm elections…that alarms me for more than one reason.

off topic.
I’m not sure if people are still perusing the Thor thread or not, so here this is again:

Marvel Comics announces black character as the new Captain America

Marvel Comics is rolling out its latest revamp of one of its main superheroes — following up on the announcement that a woman will pick up the hammer of Thor — with an African-American character becoming the new Captain America.

In the comic’s storyline an incapacitated Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, will hand off the role to his longtime friend and superhero partner the Falcon, real name Sam Wilson, to take over in the patriotic costume and iconic circular shield.

TigerPaw on July 17, 2014 at 2:06 AM

So where are the parents of the kids being sent… you know the dirt poor, living in horrific conditions, in desperate situations… those people… getting the cash to give to a human trafficker to send their kids to the US in the first place?

They don’t have it because of their income. Heck even Americans in the Middle Class don’t have that kind of spending money on hand and sending a child to summer camp is a big budget item. So where are they getting that cash?

And just how much is the US spending in those countries in ‘aid’ anyways? How well tracked is that money? Or is this yet another set of crashed hard drives sort of deal?

And if it is the narco-cartels doing this where are they getting the cash? They do not work for free being businessmen, although criminal operations they are not run as charities, you know. And a few guns via Holder and Hillary isn’t enough to buy this sort of human trafficking, so where are the cartels getting the cash to do this if not from the parents?

Who is paying these people off to do this?

Human trafficking ain’t cheap, you know.

ajacksonian on July 17, 2014 at 7:20 AM

It’s classic Cloward Piven, over load the current system until it collapses the replace it with whatever you want. And it’s multi tiered in this case. They’re shipping these people secretly to towns big and small all over the country. How many local social services won’t be able to cope? wait until school starts and some small school system has to absorb 200 illegal aliens that don’t speak English.

bannor on July 17, 2014 at 8:04 AM

This is just the beginning and for Democrats, it’s political suicide.

The influx of illegal immigrants not only flouts the law, but will create a disaster in many local communities. The primary effects will be fiscal, in a strain on social services (which are already being stretched), schools and also in the job market.

One has to wonder how long your core constituency will continue to pay the price for Democrats political aspirations. Over the last few years they have been hit hardest by related issues such as unemployment.

Republicans in Congress finally have some leverage to help the American people. By requesting funding, it’s pretty clear Mr. Obama knows his entire strategy will fall apart without it.

Mr Obama and the Democrats response to a denial? More blame deflection. But that’s a very dangerous gamble when most people are very clear that Mr. Obama and Democrats started this deluge. Once it start to affect their constituents, which it will, the strategy falls apart and Democrats on the ballot in November become more toxic.

Republicans need to think a little deeper than a single change in the law. This is a monumental opportunity to help a plurality of the American people- irrespective of party.

Marcus Traianus on July 17, 2014 at 8:39 AM

What if it not just Latinos who are entering our country illegally?

My take.

Why is it that some vaguely worded poll which is clearly tailored to get a specific result is viewed as a slam dunk for amnesty fans?

Paperclips on July 17, 2014 at 8:53 AM

Assuming this article is true and some sort of blanket amnesty is declared:

1. would a citizen have standing to sue to overturn it
2. could and would the House amend their lawsuit to add immigration
3. could a future Republican administration revoke it retroactively and would any Republican president even do so if he could

Obama is destroying us with his invasion.

dogsoldier on July 17, 2014 at 9:30 AM

And even in an article about this particular dangerous aspect of the situation, they perpetuate the ‘unaccompanied’ and ‘children’ aspect of all of this. Everyone streaming across is a four year old in need of teddy bears and soccer balls, remember.

Midas on July 17, 2014 at 9:33 AM

Correct.

A big local story here this morning, reported by Jeff Kuhner is that King Putt phoned Deval Patrick and asked mini me to house a large number of invaders in Massachusetts.

No work on how many have

Lice,
Fleas,
Scabies,
Measles,
Tuberculosis, or

Ebola.

If you haven’t been following the reports about the Ebola outbreak you need to wake up NOW. It’s out of control in Africa and US Border Patrol agents have a lot of evidence of muslims crossing the border illegally.

Obviously, these illegal muslim immigrants have been in close proximity to all the other ‘unaccompanied’ ‘children.’

Also there is no telling what other things are being smuggled across our southern border. You do know that 20,000 SAMs went missing in Libya. Where do you think they ended up?

dogsoldier on July 17, 2014 at 9:56 AM

work should be word. Edit feature FTW, HA.

dogsoldier on July 17, 2014 at 9:57 AM

This just goes to prove, to whoever is in denial, that “immigration reform” equals amnesty to politicians.

When the question is asked in surveys, “immigration reform” means closing the border.

This is Orwellian.

FrankT on July 17, 2014 at 10:17 AM

It has been made clear that the democrat response to “how are you going to pay for that,” when conservatives say “deport them,” can be paid for with the money they waste on illegals every day.

It is no longer acceptable to say “you can’t deport them.” You can. It is cheaper than giving them welfare for 7 years.

I do not know who Obama will give amnesty to, the Dreamers program covered most of those who perhaps try hard to be Americans, and they are not finding that a lot of them want to come out of the shadows where they had two or three identities and don’t have to claim all their paychecks, and work under the table for less than Americans do.

It is only fun to be in the U.S. and working if you don’t pay the tax bill, and get welfare too, and EBT cards because you don’t claim any of that income, and can qualify. And if you can send money to your relatives in South America. That practice has to be stopped. I will let a democrat introduce that bill and vote for it, and give them the credit.

The best manager I ever worked for had a saying… “Don’t come to me with your problems, bring me your solutions and I’ll help you sort them out.”

Thank you for publishing solutions! Conservatives need to do more of this!

dominigan on July 17, 2014 at 10:21 AM

The only – THE ONLY – reason why the smarter political party, the Democrats, would be pushing amnesty this hard leading up to midterms, given the potential cost, is because they are thinking the long game.

Claw and pull as many third world aliens over now, and that pays off big time in elections to come.

If only Republicans could think and act as smart enough to hurt Democrats. I think the only time that worked was the civil war. War.

Poll: Majority of Americans Oppose Feds Housing Illegal Immigrants In Their State…

Via Rasmussen:

[A]dvocates for the illegal immigrants argue that they are flooding into the country to escape violent situations in their home countries, but just 31% of U.S. voters think they are coming here now for their own safety. Most voters (52%) believe they are coming here for economic reasons. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, who last week criticized efforts to deport these illegal immigrants, is now reportedly the latest governor to tell the White House not to house any of them in his state. Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters disapprove of housing these illegal immigrants in their state. Only half as many (29%) approve, while 14% are undecided.

Voters are more uncertain, however, when it comes to the $3.7 billion in new spending that President Obama has asked for from Congress to deal with these new illegal immigrants. Twenty-six percent (26%) think Congress should approve the president’s request even if it does not provide for quicker deportation of these illegals, but 40% oppose approval if money for sped-up deportation is not included. One-in-three voters (34%) are not sure.

Resist We Much on July 17, 2014 at 11:41 AM

Most Voters Want to Send Latest Illegal Immigrants Home ASAP

Most voters don’t want any of the young illegal immigrants who’ve recently arrived here housed in their state and say any legislation passed by Congress to deal with the problem should focus on sending them home as soon as possible.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the primary focus of any new immigration legislation passed by Congress should be to send the young illegal immigrants back home as quickly as possible. Just 27% say it should focus instead on making it easier for these illegal immigrants to remain in the United States. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided.

Resist We Much on July 17, 2014 at 11:45 AM

He’s incredibly bold. But then, why wouldn’t he be, when his adversaries are wussies like Boehner.

Ward Cleaver on July 17, 2014 at 1:05 PM

The White House under these abusers might as well be the new DNC headquarters. The Dumb A’s have been in constant campaign mode since before 2008. Never has there been a more selfish, egotistical cabal of incompetence occupying this office.

They will not concede one remote smidgen of a possibility that they could be slightly incorrect on even the most minor of philosophical points. Yet, they expect all to join them in their insanity, all the while throwing vast amounts of wasted, borrowed money down the drain, except for what was used to pay back their friends.
