Man, is he correct on this one.  The question is, how did they get here?  What if 11 million people suddenly slipped over the border to Mexico, what do you think they would do, offer housing, college tuition, and free medical care?  I don't think so.  It also doesn't make sense to make citizens of murderers, rapists, drug lords, arsonists, perverts, terrorists, or other fugitives from justice.  My very liberal brothers thinks we should be giving these "undocumented" felons everything under the sun.  He has two masters degrees so he isn't stupid.  He is, however, and example of the "low information" voter. :thumbsdown:

Obama: ‘It Doesn’t Make Sense to Have 11 Million People Who Are in This Country Illegally...’



October 25, 2013 - 1:28 PM


By Terence P. Jeffrey

(CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama--who oversees both the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security--said in a speech at the White House on Thursday that it does not make sense to have 11 million people in the United States “illegally.”

The president said that the people "illegally" in the United States need to be given an “incentive” to stay here and become what he called “legalized citizens.”

“It doesn’t make sense to have 11 million people who are in this country illegally without any incentive or any way for them to come out of the shadows, get right with the law, meet their responsibilities and permit their families then to move ahead,” he said. “It’s not smart. It’s not fair. It doesn’t make sense.”



Obama reiterated his request that the Republican-controlled Congress pass the immigration reform bill that has already been approved by the Senate.

“It would make sure that everybody plays by the same rules by providing a pathway to earned citizenship for those who are here illegally,” said Obama.

“So this isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s the smart thing to do,” said Obama. “Securing our borders; modernizing our legal immigration system; providing a pathway to earned, legalized citizenship; growing our economy; strengthening our middle class; reducing our deficits--that’s what common-sense immigration reform will do.”

Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution mandates that the president “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

A page on the White House website that explains the administration's understanding of the power of the Executive Branch says: "The President is responsible for implementing and enforcing the laws written by Congress."

In his White House speech on Thursday, the president did not say how he knew that "in the shadows" there were “11 million people who are in this country illegally.”

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

/Rant on.

The USA has the most ridiculously convoluted immigration system it is possible to imagine.

It takes years, sometimes, for stupid reasons like you can't remember the address where you lived when you were two. Costs thousands of dollars, massive stress and anxiety and you can be deported at any time for any reason. Even if your spouse is a US citizen.

If I come to live in the USA - as I occasionally threaten to - I will do it the sensible way. Run the border and work for/pay cash.

I'm thinking of sneaking into Mexico and then back into the US as an illegal alien so I can live better. :pondering:
