Scenes From A Country With No Borders 10/03/14
The amnesty for illegal aliens lobby - oh, pardon, 'immigration activists' has gone far beyond merely asking for anything. This is no longer our country but theirs, you see, and they have demands that must be met - or else.
Rep. Louis Gutierrez (D-IL), one of the radical members of the lobby made that plain in a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus last Wednesday.
"Imagine for a moment the president of the United States makes an announcement. We figure out who the 5 million, 6 million people are. We get ready to register them [to vote] and the Republican majority decides they will obstruct the process. They will be the end of the Republican Party as a national party in the United States of America, because then it won’t be that the Democrats didn’t act and that the Republicans didn’t act. It will be the last act."
"This is a concrete example of justice for a community of people that we love and cherish and will defend. I’m ready for the president to act. And let me tell you something. Whoever attacks the decision of the president to bring justice and fairness to millions of undocumented immigrants and allow them to have justice in this country, I’m ready for that fight and I’m ready to join everybody in this room in winning that fight."
That sounds very much like 'no justice no peace', a threat to riot if President Obama's promise to break established law isn't fulfilled and there is no amnesty for illegal aliens...from a sitting congressman who swore an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same."
How would you rate Rep. Gutierrez's 'true faith and allegiance' to the Constitution and our laws?
That aside, Gutierrez's threat to Republicans has no basis in reality, as I've pointed out before.
If Republicans in congress knuckle under and allow this blatantly illegal action to happen, they will become a permanent minority party if they even continue to exist at all. Aside from the effect of 5 or 6 million additional voters ( a number you can double once chain migration is accounted for), many of whom don't speak English and are easily manipulated by demagogues like Gutierrez, they will lose most of the 2/3 of the Hispanic vote that's currently up for grabs and their party's base, which will never vote Republican again but seek to develop a new political party.
President Obama, for his part seems entirely ready to deliver. And why not? It doesn't matter that Americans overwhelmingly oppose amnesty by better than 2 to 1. It doesn't matter that we have almost one hundred million Americans who have given up looking for work and are no longer in the labor force, a record number. It doesn't matter that 3 million people who are trying to enter America legally are being done an injustice.It doesn't matter that schools will struggle to maintain our already poor levels of public education to accommodate the influx of illegal aliens, many of whom are not even literate in Spanish let alone English. Or that diseases are coming to America unimpeded that we've never seen before or that were eradicated in this country decades ago.
What matters to President Obama and his party is pure politics. This is about changing the electorate to stay in power and turning America into something very different than our founders intended.
At a dinner last night with the aforementioned Hispanic Congressional Congress, President Obama promised an executive order granting amnesty between the midterm elections and the year's end.
“This is not a question of if, but when,” he said.
He also boasted about riding over to the dinner with two CHCI (Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute) interns whom he called 'Dreamers' because they are two of the illegal aliens brought to America as children the president already has given amnesty to by executive order.
The president also said that he needed Hispanics to 'have his back' and to get out the vote for Democrats.
The president finished by leading a chant of “Sí se puede, si votamos" ('yes we can, if we vote).
What, you thought this was about anything else but partisan politics?
