But why do so many of Trump's opponents fly the Mexican flag, anyway? Besides: Mexican immigration law is a lot harsher than ours. Flag of Mexico, country of refugees.

Immigration reform is Obama’s Trojan horse

Immigration reform is the Trojan horse that Obama plans to use to win a second term. His behavior makes no sense otherwise.

Yesterday he came to El Paso, Texas (a State that he didn’t have time to declare a disaster area, though fire has badly scorched the State lately), and gave a campaign speech, with a garrison-sized Mexican flag flying behind him, to an audience that must have consisted of illegal Mexican immigrants, their relatives, or both. Everything he said, he said to get a laugh, or a rise, out of his listeners. Some prize examples:

They wanted a fence. Well, the fence is now basically complete!

And if you believe that, your editor will sell you a piece of a bridge over New York’s East River. Terry Jeffrey at Town Hall reminds us that in 2006, Congress passed the Secure Fence Act. It called for a 700-mile, two-layered, reinforced fence, and said that the Secretary of Homeland Security must “gain operational control” over the border. Neither thing has happened. In fact, the government canceled the “virtual fence” of remote cameras and other sensors, saying that it was too expensive. (That is a phony excuse. This government has spent a lot more money on things that any reasonable man would say was “too expensive.”)

Besides, the instant Obama said “fence,” the audience laughed, booed, and catcalled.

And then:

Maybe they’ll need a moat! Maybe they want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.

Nobody is talking about carrying alligators from the Florida Everglades to the Rio Grande.

El Paso and other cities and towns along this border are consistently among the safest in the nation.

Symbol of immigration reform: Mexican flag flying over American flag
Mexican flag flies over American flag, a metaphor for what immigration reform means to some.

If that’s true, then no place is safe. Everyone knows how violent El Paso and the whole border is. Ask Tiffany Hartley how safe the border is. Ask those who have seen signs posted along the border, warning American citizens and lawful residents to stay clear, because drug cartel enforcers roam freely and would just as soon shoot you as look at you.

In fact, Obama does not plan to do anything on immigration reform. If he did, he could have had his DREAM Act passed in 2009. Senator John Kerry (D-MA) has reintroduced it in the Senate, but with the House in Republican hands, and the Senate even more evenly divided than it was when Scott Brown (R-MA) took Ted Kennedy’s old seat, it has no chance of passage.

Not that Obama wouldn’t want an open border. The type of immigrant who crosses the Mexican border illegally is typically poor, rootless, and for sale to the first person to offer a handout. Such a person always votes Democrat, and fits Obama’s idea of a typical American. He has also read the demographic reports that show that whites will be a minority everywhere in America by 2050. (And his supporters have read them, too, if their snide remarks to your editor in other forums are a good guide.)

But Obama is a politician first and a revolutionary second—distant second. He wants votes, and he needs them in 2012 next, and 2050 can take care of itself. He knows that most of his likely opponents don’t disagree with him as much as party labels might suggest. Roy Beck at NumbersUSA has the grim statistics. Obama’s record is the worst of all, but of the others, only Michele Bachmann has a truly promising record opposed to open borders and all that they imply, with Tim Pawlenty running a moderately distant second. Beck (no relation to Glenn) gives all the rest of them Fs and Ds.

Sadly, some Republicans in Congress have behaved badly. Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX) actually worked to repeal the Secure Fence Act, so she deserves some blame for giving Obama the sort of opportunity he loves to exploit.

What almost no one realizes is that immigration reform, meaning immigration control, is a winning issue in America today. Obama could have made a brilliant feint by speaking to an entirely different audience with a different message. That he did not, should warn anyone who cares to look where his heart really lies.

  • ECONOMIC ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS DESTROYING OUR SOCIAL PROGRAMS

    The Tea Party in America has affirmed that the illegal alien population will begin to shrink instead of growing, if we support candidates that will reflect the will of the vast majority of American citizens. The revolt within the Republican Party is the TEA PARTY who is resentful of both political parties having agendas to support their individual empowerment. for millions of extra votes for Democrats and for the GOP exploitable cheap labor. Neither is the belief of the TEA PARTY that wants stronger enforcement at the North and Southern border, which includes a National Guard presence, with the ability for the interdiction of drug smuggling, weapons dealers and illegal immigrants, with force if necessary? Furthermore, the mandated use of the new version of E-Verify, that carries tough penalties for businesses that hire workers, without legal status. In addition, the Permanent operation of “Secure Communities” in local police locations, to fingerprint and check their criminal charges through ICE data bases.

    Those Lawmakers, Governors, Mayors and municipal officials who catered to the illegal immigration, open border nuts, special interests and radical ethnocentric groups as La Raza, will be voted out of office by the TEA PARTY. These elected officials will take full responsibility for not repressing illegal immigration into their States, by not enacting policing laws or other enforcement. California, Nevada is examples of Sanctuary States and is visibly suffering from Loss of revenue by economic illegal aliens that have settled there. UTAH, INDIANA, are named as poorly regulated immigration laws and are likely once identified, will have hundreds of thousands of “economic illegal” aliens pouring into those States.

    The Tea Party will not tolerate any further Amnesties as after the Great 1986 Amnesty laws were ignored by both parties. The late Ted Kennedy accorded to The People that there would never be another amnesty, that this was a “One Time” assurance. Or is US government lying to us again? . The 2006 Secure (Double) Fence Act was intentionally unfunded just months after being enacted. The Tea Party apposes Sanctuary Cities, Chain Migration and the court mishandled instant citizen for babies intentionally conceived to gain entrance for illegal parents into America. The Dream Act, which in turn will add to the Chain Migration and Immigration Reform, a misleading name for Amnesty. All these lenient rewards, just encourages further exploitation and a unfettered magnet to financial benefits and public services once crossing the border or overstaying expired visas.

    The American people have woken up and each day are finding that the Tea Party (perhaps third party) are more like their middle class interpretation that they are striving for? The Tea Party stands somewhere between Democrats and Republicans in definition, as moderate Conservatism have received amazing results in such a short time. So Join the TEA PARTY as the revolution has just begun, to fade out the radical people who run this country. Skilled immigrants with high profession job expertise will receive the hospitality of all Americans, including the Tea party members. But we must stop the unfettered incursion of people, who will need welfare assistance and will displace impoverished Americans who still have manual jobs. The TEA PARTY is the American peoples expeditious route to break away from RINO,S and Liberal-Marxist Extremist and Democrats.

    With no excuses to their alternate parties, member politicians are moving to the TEA PARTY, as a means to prove their loyalty to all Americans. Something that must be stipulated is that individuals, illegal aliens and small groups of radical activists have infiltrated the TEA PARTY and displaying dangerous activities, within the ranks of average, citizens and residents. They are causing violent disturbances making it seem that TEA PARTY’ERS are foul-mouthed louts, as found in the Trade Union. Organizations. Arizona has became a “Litmus Test” against unconstitutional practices by Obama Czarists against this border State over the epicenter of the economic illegal alien invasion, depleting welfare and public services. They now request the American people’s help, in building the original fence by donating money, as the US Legislators have failed miserably. Go to the Arizona Governor Brewer website, by surfing it on Google. Taxpayer must take their Politicians to task whether federal or State, by calling their offices as soon as possible at Senate—202-224–3121/ House—202-225–3121 or locate these lawmakers in your phone directory blue pages. NumbersUSA for more details regarding this incendiary issue.

    Potential Presidential contender Donald Trump today in his conference is saying what other political mouthpieces are induced not to say that China and Mexico are destroying America. This nation must become a major manufacture of products again. Thousands of US companies have moved abroad, as our government has offered incentives to do so? Trump says put a 25% percent tariff’s on goods imported into this country, on trade from cheap labor countries, or we are going the way of the dinosaur and rapidly. China, South Korea, India, Mexico are taking unfair advantage, that why we owe 40 cents of every dollar to foreign countries and their invest.
