Amnesty plan just another political move

Adriana on Amnesty November 14, 2014In a slap in the face to the GOP and the newly elected Congress, it’s expected that President Obama is going to unilaterally grant amnesty to more than 5 million illegal immigrants as early as next week.

He will do so for two reasons:

• It helps Democrats make further inroads with Latino voters ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

• He’ll compel Congress to address federal health care coverage for the undocumented — or at least for children of illegal immigrants.

Obama is trying to paint Republicans as anti-children and anti-Hispanic, and that can hurt the GOP at the ballot box.

Furthermore, he’s trying to do all he can to make the Affordable Care Act stick — yes, the same grand one-size-fits-all scheme that was supposed to allow you to keep your plan and doctor, if you liked them. How did that work out?

As for voter manipulation, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren drones on that the banks are “rigging the system against the little guy.” Yet while she’s busy attacking Wall Street and over-regulating banks, she refuses to acknowledge reports of voter fraud involving illegal immigrants.

Now Obama wants to give these illegals work permits — rigging the system against unemployed Americans. There are millions of law-abiding citizens who want a good paying job and a shot at the American dream, but progressives would rather give those jobs to illegals, creating a chasm between citizens and illegal immigrants.

Millions of illegals will undoubtedly get free stuff — welfare, in-state tuition, housing and more. But Americans know, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. It’s the middle class that will be picking up the enormous tab for Obama’s folly.

Will it be 10 million illegals next year?

Another 10 million the year after? Where will it end?

Bottom line: What Obama and fellow Democrats are doing is pushing to give Hillary Clinton or Warren the keys to the White House in 2016 — under the guise of wanting to help immigrants.

What it’s really about is helping keep Democrats in power. Nothing more, nothing less.
