Obama Opens Front Door for Illegals

Obama Opens Front Door for Illegals
Commentary by Sanford D. Horn
June 15, 2012

Another disgraceful decision by the insipid Obama administration is to be implemented immediately. In a continuing attempt to redistribute wealth and hamstring legal residents and American citizens, amnesty-lite is being awarded to upwards of 800,000 illegals who are lawbreakers simply by their mere presence in the United States.

Young illegals - defined as under age 30, will no longer be deported, but instead be given work permits - because the unemployment figures are so damn low - provided they meet certain criteria: in the US for five years prior to age 16, graduated from a US high school or earned a GED, or served in the military, and having no criminal record.

FYI – stepping one foot on American soil MAKES an illegal a criminal. This is an executive order, unilaterally issued by Obama, bypassing Congress and violating the separation of powers once again. The dictator in chief has spoken. We cannot oust the unctuous Obama fast enough. This must be overturned on January 20, 2013 for the sake of the nation, for the sake of the republic and for the sake of our economic survival.

This only opens the flood gates further. How stupid is this latest scheme just based on the recent announcement that the newest graduates are facing unemployment above 30 percent? This only rewards bad behavior, whether the "young" person's or their criminal parents. That the announcement is coming from the Department of Homeland Security also does not bode well as this is a national security issue.

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said we are a nation of laws when announcing Obama’s latest edict. If that is true, why are lawbreakers being given rights? This most certainly is a political move made by an obsequious administration pandering to a constituency that should oppose this directive with vim and vigor. It absolutely IS amnesty and a slippery slope toward citizenship and suffrage rights. Clearly this violated the rule of law and sets a poor precedent.

For those who support this deplorable decision on the grounds that children should not be punished for the wrongs committed by their parents, consider the concept of “fruit from the poisonous tree.” When a search is deemed illegal by a judge in court, all evidence collected as a result of said search is considered exculpatory and thrown out, not to be considered by a jury when rendering their verdict. Such evidence is deemed “fruit of the poisonous tree.” As such, so should the children of parents who are in the United States illegally. The parents broke the law coming to this country illegally and bringing their children makes them just as illegal, all of whom have no right to remain.

One possible solution to mitigate the concern by those objecting to Obama’s thoughtless decision would be if the aforementioned 800,000 illegals are permitted to remain in the United States, they must register with the government – federal and state as being in the country illegally, not be granted citizenship or enfranchisement rights and any criminal act is a one way ticket back to their country of origin.

Additionally, the parents of these illegals would be required to self-deport in exchange for allowing their children to remain in the United States. Should the parents return to the United States, their children would be deported along with their miscreant parents.

For those who might consider such a plan draconian, law breaking is not to be rewarded and those who violate the statutes of the United States or the several states should be subject to strict punishment to hopefully deter other potential scofflaws to follow in the footsteps of their fellow illegal travelers.

That rumbling under the ground is the sound of the Founding Fathers spinning in their graves like Chanukah dreidls. May G-d save the republic, because mere mortals don't seem to have a chance in hell of doing so.
