Immigration July 2014
Today I again saw the Sunday News pundits interviewed the Secretary of Homeland Security and ask the same idiotic question. “Do you think the adults, the mothers with children and the unescorted children from Central America who have arrived at the doorstep of America, seeking escape from danger and poverty in their respective countries, will stop coming?”
Jeh Johnson, replied several times, “We are doing our best to process these individuals, according to the law.”
“Will you send them back?” they pressed.
Mr. Johnson, again replied “We have place more personnel at the border, and we will follow the law.”
It seemed to me that the questioner wanted an answer such as, “Yes, we will send them back.” But the simple fact is that the department MUST FOLLOW THE LAW!!!
Now, President Obama has said unequivocally, each and every time the subject of the immigration crisis was broached, “We have sent a clear message to the people from the countries involved, not to come here seeking to stay. Do not place yourselves and your children in danger. You will be processed according to our laws and likely be sent back.”
The callous and narrow-minded Obama haters seem not to be able to grasp the answers that both he and the Secretary gave. The answers are plain and simple…This Administration cannot control what people decide to do. We can only react to it, for it would be inhumane, not to feed them, clean them, provide a safe place to rest, all according to the law. All week they erroneously ranted about this Administration, making up rules to make lives better for our citizens, yet they will not pass laws to help govern the problem. After all, Bo(eh)ner has said many, many times that the republicans should be judged on how many laws they repeal, not on how many they pass. It looks like, from any angle, their score is a big fat zero, a zero!!
Let me just make a small comment on Bo(eh)ner’s threat to sue the President. Obama’s response is “So, sue me!!!”
By the way, did you notice that the jobs report for June revealed that 280 thousand people were hired, making five consecutive months of job growth of over 200 thousand; but that’s not the full story…. a total of 9.7 million new private-sector jobs were created over the last 52 months − the longest such streak on record. The unemployment rate has dropped to 6.1 percent, down significantly from 7.5 percent just a year ago. Since January 2010, there have been 7.7 million jobs created! Bush’s economic ideas created a loss of 2.436 million jobs between Y 2007and Y 2008. The spillover into Y2009, of Bush’s policies cost our economy another whopping 5.5 million jobs! So, sue me!
Some reminders: again, Obama’s policies saved the auto industry in the U.S. (1.5 million jobs!)
The DOW just made it to $17 million!
Eight million more people have health insurance, via the Affordable Care Act; 2.2 million enrollees are between the ages of 18 to 34! So, sue me!
The troops are out of Iraq, except the less than a thousand, who are there as advisors. Obama, true to his word, is winding down the troops in Afghanistan and bringing them home. He has kept us out of Syria and Libya; and captured one of the instigators of the attack on our embassy. He chose sanctions against Russia, over bombs in the crisis in Crimea. So, sue me!
Regarding, immigration; his administration has deported more illegal immigrants than any other president and increased the amount of money and manpower at our southern border! So, sue me!
Let me stop, you know where I’m going with this.
Yet his poll numbers are in the tank (according to the pollsters)… I think they question people in the tea party who hate him because he is black! I know nobody ever asked me and I’ve a registered voter since I was eighteen!
A change of pace; the CHiPs need to fire that nut trooper who brutally beat that black lady, Marlene Pinnock, a grandmother, senseless the other day, and lock his ass up for twenty years!
“He just pounded her, if you look at the video, there are 15 hits. To the head, and not just simple jabs. These are blows to the head. Blows. Really serious blows. I find it hard to believe there was no other remedy in this situation,” said Diaz, the driver who had the quick sense to record the incident. The video speaks volumes. Is that the way the police stop someone from hurting themselves? Beat the crap out of them? The police like to use video to point out criminal behavior… let them do likewise here. Identify the trooper and place him in handcuffs IMMEDIATELY!!! He’s off the street, but he needs to be in jail. Do not let this incident become another “Fruitvale Station”. Thank you so much, Mr. Diaz for stepping up and out!! Without the video this monster would have gotten away with the assault. Lastly, her civil rights were clearly violated! Bring in the Feds!
By the way, take a look at the numerous recent violent and unlawful actions by the police, across our nation:
There was a college female professor who was assaulted by the campus police recently; or the baby who was seriously injured by a flash grenade by police on a raid at the wrong address.
Chicago, IL cops are caught brutalizing woman saying, “You’ll Be Dead, Your Family Will Be Dead!”
Michael Blair was shot numerous times by police in Fort Bend County Texas.
Police Officer “accidentally” kills woman during drug raid: Sgt. Brett McKnight in Chillicothe, OH shot and killed Krystal Barrows during a failed drug raid. But for the third time his camera “malfunctioned” when he was assaulting a victim.
An Officer smashes DUI suspect’s head into a concrete wall; a Marion County, Fla. Corrections Officer is accused of hitting an inmate James Duckworth was arrested.
Woman’s face shattered after Police Officer Michael Hart throws her into a concrete bench: 47-year-old Cassandra Feuerstein was arrested in Skokie, Illinois for drunk driving on March 10. Her experience was far from a routine DUI arrest…..
Officer Jeremy Dear, Albuquerque, N.M. Police Department shoots and kills Mary Hawkes. Albuquerque police officers say they turned off lapel cameras … the Justice Department slammed the Albuquerque Police Department….
Need I go on?
Enough said. I’m out!!
