Must See Video: Backdoor Amnesty Efforts at Play

Despite the will of the American people and the immigration laws established by our elected officials, the Obama Administration is hard at work behind the scenes in pushing for amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) recently sued the state of South Carolina for passing one of the toughest immigration enforcement laws in the country, and they are also harassing the state of Alabama even after that state won a court decision to move ahead with its own tough immigration enforcement law. Additionally, At the urging of the open borders lobby, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in early 2011 began to implement formal measures to relax the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws through a series of memos issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton.

In this must see brief video, FAIR President Dan Stein takes a closer look at the measures taken by the Administration to ultimately give amnesty to illegal aliens. Dan also gives some good advice and guidance on what we can all do to help ensure that U.S. immigration laws are enforced and to thwart the attempts by amnesty advocates and special interest groups.

    Thomas Jefferson:

    “…governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

    John Milton:

    “The power of kings and magistrates is nothing else, but what is only derivative, transferred and committed to them in trust from the people, to the common good of them all, in whom the power yet remains fundamentally, and cannot be taken from them without a violation of their natural birthright.”

    John Locke:

    To understand political power aright, and derive it from its original, we must consider what estate all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom.

    [T]hough the earth and all inferior creatures be common to all men, yet every man has a “property” in his own “person.” This nobody has any right to but himself. The “labour” of his body and the “work” of his hands, we may say, are properly his.

    Freedom of men under government is to have a standing rule to live by, common to everyone of that society, and made by the legislative power vested in it; a liberty to follow my own will in all things, when the rule prescribes not, and not to be subject to the inconstant, unknown, arbitrary will of another man.

    And reason…teaches all mankind who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions.

    Every man has a property in his own person. This nobody has a right to, but himself.

    Government has no other end than the preservation of property.

    Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any farther obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence.
