Obama’s Solution To Rising Gas
The president watches a t.v commercial and writes his speech. And the crowd is buying it, just incredible.
Shit makes a good fuel and there is plenty of that in D.C. believe it or not.
Gutierrez: ‘I Want to Thank’ Obama for Bypassing Congress to Cancel Deportation of Illegals’
By Edwin Mora (CNS NEWS )
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) thanked President Obama for circumventing the Legislative branch when it comes to immigration law.
Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code makes it a federal crime to be in the United States illegally. Nevertheless, the Obama administration in August directed federal immigration officials to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deciding which illegal aliens to detain and deport.
“We had a president of the United States that recently was speaking at National Council of La Raza who said during his speech, ‘There are those who simply wish me to bypass Congress when it comes to immigration,’ and many in the audience clapped, saying, ‘Yup, bypass Congress…’” Gutierrez told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) conference on Monday.
“He (Obama) said, ‘But I can’t bypass Congress,’ and people in the audience said, ‘Yes you can,’ and you want to know something? They were right — he could and he did, and I want to thank the President of the United States, and I want to thank all of those that work at the White House for issuing new guidance when it comes to deportations,” Gutierrez added.
(Obama in July told the National Council of La Raza that although the idea of bypassing Congress and changing U.S. immigration laws on his own was “very tempting,” his hands were tied because “that is not how our system works.”)
Gutierrez, who has criticized Obama for not taking up immigration reform, said a million people have been deported from the United States during the last 30 months. But under the new policy, those who came to the U.S. as children will not be deported.
“It means that one million young immigrants to this country get to live and survive for another day, and that’s a victory — that they’re not being deported and as a matter of fact that there are cancellations of deportations.”
The DREAM Act, which would have granted young people a pathway to legalization if they went to college or served in the U.S. military, was rejected by Congress in December 2010, but administration’s new “discretion” policy will now allow them to stay in the U.S., Gutierrez said.
In June, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, a component of the Homeland Security Department, issued a memo outlining the new immigration policy.
Unless the illegal alien poses national security concerns, has a serious criminal history, poses a threat to public safety, is a human rights violator or is involved in “significant” immigration fraud, he or she will probably will not be deported.
The memo also directs ICE agents to take into consideration how long an individual has been in the U.S., whether that person has a spouse or children who are U.S. citizens, and whether that person has a serious criminal record. Crimes victims, witnesses to crimes, or people who are charged with minor traffic violations also would avoid deportation under the ICE guidance.
According to DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, the new discretion policy will result in a case-by-case review of an estimated 300,000 undocumented immigrants facing deportation in federal immigration courts.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) introduced the HALT Act in June. The bill is intended to prevent the Obama administration from granting de facto amnesty under the guise of prosecutorial discretion.
Brawl of Presidents
I find this stuff absolutely hilarious.
Big news right? I will give all the props to President Obama. This was no easy decision. Imagine what was going thru his head. Hard knowledge of Osama’s location,what would you do? You could missile strike from a drone but this might leave unintended consequences. And leave little to no proof of Osama’s death. Or put boots to the dirt and kill the most hated person on Earth. There are a bunch of story’s rolling around some true some not and it seems the facts are changing buy the minute,however I don’t care how it happened or were it took place in fact I could care less about Pakistani sovereignty. The man is dead and it’s not for the President or our Government to prove it with a death photo but rather make them prove he is alive. It seems to me that would be a lot harder to make something out of nothing as apposed to proving his death. Once again I say good riddance. Folks lets save our blood lust for 2012. However who brought up the photo deal anyway? I can’t imagine the American people right from the start screaming let me see the photo, We don’t do this as a rule. The politicians brought this on and so many followed this.. Followers, funny Is it not? What with a world full of facebook followers? Everyone want’s instant info on everything from what your family and so called ‘ friends’ are doing to your favorite celeb. frustrating really, a world full of followers. Forced information lacks always as apposed to the natural way of things that are.
And speaking about 2012 the first Republican debate took of this week with a mixed result of nothing.
This debate was hosted by Fox news with Brett Bair and I thought it was the best one I seen yet. At least Fox will ask a question that’s worth my ear. Herman Cain was the clear winner but again we have a long way to go till Nov. Fun to see it all start up again although it seems like yesterday we elected the great nothing as president. You know what they say, ‘time fly’s when your losing your ass, job, home etc…..
