Will Obama's EO be the End All to Immigration Problems?

    My Opinion on Recent Events! :type:

    I do not see his actions this past week as ending the goals of illegal immigrants to have the "whole enchilada!" In fact, it is merely the beginning of more protests for change, and will lead to more changes to fix what he failed to address in this first Executive Over-reach, or EO!

    They took to the streets all around southern California on Thursday evening, wanting those left out to be included. Wanting to be eligible for ACA and other welfare programs. And sadly, I see the King of DC succumbing to their chants for more, by giving them everything else in the days to come.

    And even though he has told them it is
    temporary" do any Americans believe him? After all, this is the same man who stated more than once that "If you liked your doctor; policy; or insurance ... you could keep it!" This is the same man who more than 25 times told groups of illegals across this nation that to do what he did Thursday evening was impossible, because it was up to Congress to make laws, and his sworn oath to execute said laws.

    This is the man who drew a "red line in the sand" with Syria, and watched as Syria's president walked over the line and went miles beyond it! This is the man who released five proven terrorists for a known army deserter. The man who promised to change immigration as soon as he was sworn in as president.

    The same man who swore he'd adopt a rescue dog, and went out and purchased to pure bred dogs. He is the same man who stated, "There's not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS Scandal!" And yet today, newly found emails by Lois Lerner may make this lie a whopper of sorts.

    He's the same man who blamed "fast and Furious" to have its beginning under another president! And Gitmo is still open, six years later. And how could any of forget that this man promised to have the most "Open and Transparent" administration ever? Yeah, right?

    If we can no longer believe Obama, how can we believe he will stop with five million illegals being waved into the country, with the promise to no longer fear deportation?

    I don't believe him. And while I, quite frankly, have never believed any politician in the last few decades, this one person has added a new definition to liar in chief! He cannot be trusted to do anything in the best interest of Americans.

    As for his comment that we owe these law-abiding men, women and children the opportunity to be free from the worry of deportation, and the right to compete openly in the job market, let me say this.

    1) What a joke. To call people who not only broke our immigration laws to get here, law abiding; and to say we owe them more than our scorn. Let me say that according to the letter of the law, the only thing America owes these people are a free ride back to where they started their illegal journey from! How can someone call someone else who broke our border laws and how many other laws since they arrived here, do that with a straight face?
    2) If we owe anyone in this country something, it is our legal citizens. Citizens who have found finding a job next to impossible, and with five million llegal's now free to compete without the fear of deportation, will find it even more difficult; leaving them on welfare.
    3) A man sworn to execute the laws and the Constitution of this nation need to be putting Americans before illegals. And the legal thing for him to do is to deport these people, and if they have American-born children, and the ACLU is worried bout the separation of the family due to deportation, then let the children go with their parents back to Asia, Africa, the Philippines, Mexico, Central and South America.

    It is time that those elected to lead and govern this nation do what they were elected to do, not what they "want to do!" Reality says we can't always have it the way we'd like or wish. Life is not always going to have a "Deus ex machina" ending, where everyone lives happily ever after! You break our laws; you pay the price.

    It's time to step up and pay the fiddler folks, and that includes paying them for a one-way bus ride back home! With a comic book explaining how they can obtain citizenship legally.

    What is the MAJOR flaw in the President's Amnesty Bill via executive order?

    You know, when he said that if you are an alien and were here and behaving yourself for more than 5 years you won't be deported but will have a temporary get out of jail free card a Social Security Card and a driver's license?

    "...If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, Period"

    And that was said to US Citizens.

    No. It's just the beginning of the next chapter...

    A new influx of illegals that storm the borders while Obama has the border patrol look the other way.

    It was a slap in the face to all the people who took the time and effort to come here the right way. It is also a slap in the face to all those that are waiting to come here the right way while their paper work is lost in some government bureaucracy that just keeps getting worse under this administration. He is going to open it up even more to anyone that can get across the border and then the Democrats will do whatever they possibly can to get them voting a straight Democrat ticket of course, rule of law be dammed.
