Donít expect immigration enforcement from Republicans
Don’t expect immigration enforcement from Republicans
Immigration Reform Examiner
On Tuesday, Florida Republican Senator and much-hyped vice-presidential hopeful Marco Rubio announced that he is crafting his own version of the DREAM Act which would grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
While the announcement has disheartened much of the Republican faithful, it really should come as a surprise to no one…
Over the past several months, the Obama administration through executive order, has been implementing one disastrous move after the next which when completed, will add up to a blanket amnesty for all of those currently inside this country illegally.
While the anger among conservative activists and law abiding Americans has been palpable, the silence coming from the national Republican Party on these lawless policies has been deafening.
-On June 17, 2011, the Obama administration issued a memo announcing immigration officials no longer have to deport illegal aliens if they are enrolled in any type of education program, if their family members have volunteered for U.S. military service, if they have filed a civil rights lawsuit or even if they are pregnant or nursing.
The policy known as 'prosecutorial discretion' was also quietly announced on a Friday afternoon, and completely ignored by the mainstream press.
-In August 2011, the Obama administration announced that they would now only deport illegal aliens who have been convicted of crimes in this country, more than likely, that means only those convicted of felonies. Perhaps, even more devastating, the administration will also reportedly distribute work permits to those illegal aliens allowed to stay even as U.S. unemployment remains very high.
-On January 6, 2012, the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services announced the agency’s proposed rule change which will allow illegal alien spouses and children to stay in this country while seeking legal residency status, rather than waiting for a green card back home.
Under the new rule, they will supposedly have to return home to visit a U.S. consulate for an interview. However, this will be but a formality.
The federal government would issue hardship waivers to the illegal aliens so that they can easily re-enter the country.
While Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) has never failed to issue a statement condemning each one of Obama’s aforementioned actions, rhetoric is where the GOP leadership begins and ends on the subject of illegal immigration and what to do about the millions of illegal aliens already here (and still coming).
In January 2011, it was announced that Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-CA) would head the House Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement. The California Congressman was chosen for the top job, even though Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was the ranking member of the subcommittee when Democrats controlled the House.
Rep. King has consistently been the loudest voice in the U.S. Congress, calling for strict border enforcement and at times, seemingly the only one on Capitol Hill who is concerned about the public safety crisis caused by illegal immigration.
In 2006, King released the results of a study which found that 12 Americans are murdered daily by illegal aliens, and 13 are killed by drunk illegal alien drivers every day.
That same study also determined that eight American children become victims of sexual abuse by illegal aliens every day, translating into 2,920 child victims annually.
King once said: “Members of Congress that vote for a guest-worker plan ... will be supporting an amnesty plan and they should be branded with the scarlet letter 'A' and pay for that amnesty in the ballot box in November [elections].”
In the past, King has introduced legislation which would deny birthright citizenship to the children of illegal aliens.
It seems that it is that same, out-spoken nature, and no-nonsense attitude that sunk him with the Republican elitists, anxious to please their Chamber of Commerce benefactors.
We must not forget that only a few years ago, it was the Republicans who were championing amnesty for illegal aliens. President Bush wanted it, and Sen. John McCain wrote the bill…Of course, Republicans were in control of both houses of Congress at that time.
In the lead-up to the 2010 midterm elections, we heard tough talk on immigration from the Republicans, but that was when they were farther out-of-power than that party had been in nearly a generation.
The chairmanship rightfully belonged to King, but just as in the past, the GOP has placed more importance on pandering to Hispanic voters than on the rule of law—it would appear they may be going down that same destructive path again.
During a recent conversation with my good friend and fellow Examiner, Rick Oltman, we both concluded that Congressional Republicans are more than likely, very relieved by Obama’s actions because now the issue is effectively over and they do not have to risk alienating Hispanic voters by calling for strict enforcement.
If the Republican Party returns to the ways of Bush and McCain and goes back on their word to Americans eager to see our immigration laws enforced, those same Americans will find what they are looking for in a third party and leave the GOP behind forever.
