Obama Victory Demands that Congress Reassert Authority over Immigration Policy

“The American people have given President Obama a second administration, but they have done so in spite of his refusal to enforce many immigration laws and his support for mass amnesty for illegal aliens,” commented Dan Stein, president of FAIR, in a press release.

“It will be up to the new Congress to hold the president accountable and to work with him to implement policies that protect the interests of the American people.”

Arpaio Wins Re-Election

“Voters in Arizona’s Maricopa County have reelected Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the face of Arizona’s controversial immigration enforcement law. With 82% of the county’s precincts reporting, the self-proclaimed “toughest sheriff” in America won a sixth term convincingly with 53% of the vote,” the LA Times writes.

“He was one of the state’s most vocal supporters of SB 1070, which requires law enforcement officers to check the papers of anyone they suspect is an illegal immigrant. The Supreme Court struck down other provisions of the law, but ruled that the so-called “show your papers” provision was constitutional.”

Contractor on Trial for Falsely Promising Citizenship

“A contractor employed undocumented workers for years through a bogus “sponsorship” program that falsely promised workers U.S. citizenship in exchange for money, a former worker claims in Clark County Court. Jose Martinez claims that NPL Construction Co. employed him and hundreds of other undocumented workers before Sept. 11, 2011, when the federal government cracked down on immigration laws,” Courthousenews.com reports.

“NPL and the other defendants lied to the workers and told them that because NPL was willing to ‘sponsor’ them, they either were or soon would be legal residents in the U.S. These statements were believed by the workers because NPL executives, regional supervisors, foremen and attorneys in the scheme assured them that it was true. Creative Concepts also brought in at least one attorney (who has now been disbarred) who issued each worker what the defendants described as an ‘attorney ticket’ – a letter to hand to authorities on attorney’s letterhead stating that the worker was part of the NPL immigration program.”

    I’m not surprised. We have churches gathering undocumented illegals taking money and landscape major and small companies only registering a few for paying taxes just for a front to appease the GOV.

    I agree. We need to stand with Congress and stop any attempt at amnesty.

    There has been a lot of chatter on the airwaves about the new electorate (women, non-white minorities) and how that electoral tsunami will make it impossible going forward for the Republican Party to regain the White House unless it essentially becomes the Democrat Party, too. I don’t completely agree, as the electorate is currently 72% white and the economy has still not sunk enough for swing voters to give up on Obama’s “hopes and dreams” theme. This was not an election of minorities this time around. Still, the GOP is on perilous ground at a national level. And by the way, I’m a registered Democrat because I’m not that conservative in a number of ways. But I also refuse to live under a one-party system of oppression like Communist China.

    I propose a solution to the division, but many people aren’t ready for this message. We need to put into currency the idea that the United States redraw its map, as it has done many times since it was only 13 colonies along the Eastern Seaboard. California, increasingly Texas, south Florida and other parts of the country are so far removed from the values of the Heartland, they would be better served as separate countries.

    As the bear market drags on and the country continues to splinter, this idea will gain currency. We need leadership and political skill if we’re going to dissolve this country as we now know it in a peaceful and orderly way. I do not want to live in the country that we are becoming, and many people must feel the same way.

      Hello Concerned Citizen

      Hope all is as well as can be for you, considering the conundrum you articulated.

      Yes, the open border “Confederate flag foreign/corporate slave lord entities” posing as conscientious liberals’ answer to the lack of national security, with illegal aliens infiltrating all over our country, is as you put succintly put it….making us another old Soviet Union nation with I’d add, nude x-rays and hand groping of genitals to get on a plane; or computer drones flying around watching us like hawks.

      Our freedoms are steadily being flushed down the toilet by “Confederate Flag Slave Lord Companies” posing as phony liberals and yes, the old fashion Democrat Party would have never nodded their head yes to WTO’s Red Chinese prison slave labor competing against American workers with minimal environmental controls.

      IMO Concerned Citizen, the answer in the next few decades [its gonna take time to fix this big mess] is to regain our manufacturing backbone again [automotive engineering], instead of outsourcing it and then lying there’s a shortage of engineers, when there’s a glut. To reiterate what the GM CEO stated a couple days ago, “70% of our cars in America were made in another country”. Its a darn good start to admit the truth and then fix it.
