White House Fears GOP President Might Reverse Obama Amnesty

White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer told the Wall Street Journal on Friday that he fears if Sen. Ted Cruz was elected president he would overturn Obama’s executive amnesty. “Our first 100 days we spent a lot of time signing executive orders undoing what Bush did, and I would like not to be sitting on a beach somewhere reading about President Cruz doing that to us…” said Pfeiffer.

Pfeiffer said that Obama’s executive amnesty was one of the reasons 2014 was a “year of great progress” for the “progressive agenda.”

Sen. Cruz is feared and disliked by most members of the bipartisan establishment in Congress who support amnesty. Washington insiders assume that most of the other potential GOP presidential candidates would not revoke Obama’s amnesty if elected — even though they criticize it as unconstitutional.

Net Job Growth Has Gone to Immigrants Since 2007

A study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) found that immigrants, legal and illegal, have accounted for all the net gains in in jobs since 2007. The reported stated, “Native employment has still not returned to pre-recession levels, while immigrant employment already exceeds pre-recession levels. Furthermore, even with recent job growth, the number of natives not in the labor force (neither working nor looking for work) continues to increase.”

Left Radicals Ignore Illegal Alien Crime

“That, and of course immigrants have been proven to commit crimes at a far-lower rate in proportion to the broader population of U.S. citizens. One study conducted by the American Immigration Council found the following: ‘The program of crime in the United States is not caused or even aggravated by immigrants, regardless of their legal status.’ ” – Imagine 2050 11/24/14

Fact Check: Imagine 2050 is a radical-left website that promotes mass immigration. Leftist radicals employ immigration as a means to destabilize American society with “diversity” and “multiculturalism.” Using these divisions to their advantage, they hope to seize power impose their ideology on society. Author William Hawkins documents their agenda in his book Importing Revolution.

To reach their objectives, the radicals try with ingenious sophistries to discredit any and all objections to mass immigration. The quote above is a good example, as it overstates the case it intends to refute, namely that immigrants cause crime in America. In point of fact, no immigration restrictionist has ever claimed such a thing.

Native-born Americans commit most of the crime in America because they are at least 86 percent of the population. The question restricitonists raise is whether immigrants proportionately add to the crime we already have.

With respect to legal immigrants, it seems they do not. Their crime rate, according to some studies, is less than that of the native-born. This, however, is not remarkable. One reason we have immigration laws is to screen out people with criminal backgrounds. And to a significant extent it appears that the system works, although the children of immigrants commit crimes at rate similar to that of the native-born.

Where Imagine 2050 tries to pull a rhetorical sleight of hand is suggesting, most ludicrously, that the lower rate of crime applies “regardless of legal status.” In other words, illegal immigrants—all of whom are lawbreakers—have a lower crime rate than American citizens. What can explain such a convoluted claim? The reason, basically, is that radical leftists don’t believe that immigration laws, which serve our national interests, are really legitimate laws. They don’t respect laws that safeguard America because they don’t respect America, a country they commonly denounce as “racist, sexist, and homophobic.”

Thus they aren’t bothered by illegal aliens breaking laws in general, and not just the ones pertaining to immigration. When you want to destabilize a society, the more anarchy the better. Illegal aliens commonly use fake documents to obtain benefits, a felony offense. Often they practice tax evasion by receiving pay under the table. And when they do pay income tax, more than a few commit fraud by claiming false dependents and getting refunds under the Additional Child Tax Credit provision. The IRS is relentless when citizens try to cheat on taxes, but relatively soft on illegal aliens.

And what is the participation of illegal aliens in crimes of violence, crimes against public order, and crimes against property? In truth it is hard to measure, but significant evidence suggests that it is higher than the American rate.

But again, lawlessness isn’t a problem for radicals, most particularly the lawlessness of unchecked Illegal immigration. By directly undermining America’s rule of law and national sovereignty, it splendidly serves the radical left’s subversive agenda.

Conservatives Blast 2O GOP Senators Who Voted for Amnesty

There is a growing backlash against 20 Senate Republicans who voted to fund Obama’s executive amnesty after publicly condemning it as unconstitutional. Both grassroots tea party activists and leaders of national conservative organizations are expressing outrage at this establishment GOP betrayal of the voters and the Constitution.

Ken Cuccinelli, head of the Senate Conservatives Fund, said he is “shocked” that 20 GOP Senators “defected from the Constitution, defected from the Founding Fathers,” and noted that the grassroots is angry.

Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center and chairman of ForAmerica, condemned the 20 GOP “turncoats” for their “cowardice.” He praised the senators who voted against the measure, saying: “There is now clear separation between true conservatives who uphold their oath to the Constitution and liberal Republicans…”

Richard Viguerie’s ConservativeHQ, Heritage Action, and Conservative Review, also blasted the 20 senators.

Sessions Statement On Obama’s ICE Nominee

Sen. Jeff Sessions opposed President Obama’s pick to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Sarah Saldana, because of her support for Obama’s executive amnesty plan. His lengthy statement quotes numerous legal authorities — and Obama in past statements — on the president’s lack of authority to ignore and re-write immigration laws.

Massive Fraud Predicted In Obama Amnesty

Fraud investigations have already been greatly reduced in Obama’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), according to the retired official who created and ran the division responsible for preventing fraud from 2004 until 2011. Louis “Don” Crocetti, Jr. expects an “astronomical” number of forged and falsified documents to result from the president’s executive action on immigration and does not believe the Obama administration is making an effort to prevent that fraud.

Jim DeMent Defends Cruz and Lee Fight Against Amnesty

Jim DeMent, Heritage Foundation President and former senator, on Tuesday praised Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) for forcing the Senate to debate Obama’s executive amnesty: “Ted and Mike were attempting to carry out the mandate that voters gave to Congress on Nov. 4.”

“These two senators were representing the mainstream of their party and the majority of voters from the past election. There is absolutely zero debate within the Republican Party as to whether the president overstepped his constitutional authority or acted improperly. Everyone agrees that he has. The disagreement, apparently, is over whether lawmakers actually should try to stop him.”

DeMent noted the anger, vitriol and false accusations directed at Cruz and Lee by GOP senators who claim they oppose Obama’s lawless actions, but prefer to make “Washington’s gravy train run on time.”

Looking ahead to January when the GOP will take control of the Senate, DeMent asks: “Will a Republican-controlled Congress follow the lead of conservatives such as Cruz and Lee in the Senate and Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio in the House, or will lawmakers follow the lead of pro-amnesty K Street lobbyists?”

Amnestied Illegals To Get Billions in Tax Credits

President Obama’s executive amnesty will allow millions of illegal aliens to collect billions in tax credits, according to a report Monday by Conn Carroll at TownHall.com. While illegals already collect more than $4 billion a year in Additional Child Tax Credit payments from the Treasury, by giving the amnestied illegals Social Security numbers Obama will allow them to collect even larger payments under the more generous Earned Income Tax Credit program.

AZ Sheriff: 2O Million Could Get Obama Amnesty

Paul Babeu, sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona, on Monday said as many as 20 million illegals will qualify for deferred deportation under President Obama’s new amnesty plan — not the 4 to 5 million number used by the president and most of the media. 

Babeu, appearing on Fox News, said: “The fact is, it’s not just the 5 million that President Obama promised, we learned that Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security, put out a six-page memo and he said that anybody who’s been here since January of this year, anybody prior to that date, they are allowed to stay here.”

Babeu explained that Obama’s plan will give many illegals who have been here five years or more work permits and other benefits, but that it also gives the much larger number of illegals who arrived as recently as a year ago freedom from deportation. He said this was going to make the situation even worse along the southern border: “It sends the wrong message. It’s a big neon sign flashing…make it to the border and you’re home free.”
