Obama Says ICE Is Terrorist Organization

Obama says that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the largest investigative arm of the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), are terrorists.

Speaking in front of the racist National Council of La Raza, Obama said, "When communities are terrorized by ICE immigration raids, when nursing mothers are torn from their babies, when children come home from school to find their parents missing, when people are detained without access to legal counsel, when all that is happening, the system just isn’t working, and we need to change it."

BY the way, this comment beautifully illustrates the Alinsky facilitation method.  Obama agitates the crowd with emotional language and charges, and then provides the solution to these perceived wrongs -- himself.  It's what he does all the time and it is the secret to his success.
Obama Wants To Insure Illegals
The claim made by Obama that 46 million "Americans" lack health insurance is false because that number includes almost 10 million people who are not "Americans" but in fact citizens of foreign countries who happen to be present in the United States ILLEGALLY, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

The claim was made repeatedly in a report published by the White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) on June 2 and again in an op-ed published the same day by Christina Romer, the chair of CEA.

The claim that there are 46 million uninsured "Americans" has also been used by members of Congress and news organizations.

At a townhall meeting in Green Bay, Wis., last Thursday, President Obama twice referred to "46 million" people who lack health insurance, although in neither case did he describe those "46 million" as "Americans" -- in one instance referring to them as "46 million people who don't have health insurance" and in another instance as "46 million uninsured."

On June 2, the White House released "The Economic Case for Health Care Reform," a report by the president's Council of Economic Advisers.  In making the case for Obama's health-care reform plan, this report repeatedly asserted that there are 46 million uninsured "Americans."

Obama wants you to give up your insurance plan so he can insure criminals.  He wants those 10,000,000 voters too  -- Democratic Party control forever.

That's the reason that Rep. José Serrano [D NY] filed, in the current session of the U. S. Congresss, H.J.Res. 5.

Serrano's resolution is a Constitutional amendment to remove the limit on the number of terms one may serve as President.  It effectively would repeal the 22nd Amendment, which was approved by Congress in 1947 and ratified by the states in 1951.  Several Democratic Party members of Congress have introduced similar legislation.
A Promise Not Kept
Fox News is reporting that yesterday in El Paso, Obama said:
    

"They wanted more agents on the border.  Well, we now have more boots on the ground on the southwest border than at any time in our history.  The Border Patrol has 20,000 agents -- more than twice as many as there were in 2004, a build up that began under President Bush and that we have continued.  They wanted a fence.  Well, that fence is now basically complete."

    
Five years ago, legislation was passed to build a 700-mile double-layer border fence along the southwest border.  This is a promise that has not been kept.

Today, according to staff at the Department of Homeland Security, just 5 percent of the double-layer fencing is complete, only 36.3 miles.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO), Congress's investigative arm, reported in early 2009 that only 32 miles of double-layer fencing had been built.  That means under Obama, only 4.3 miles of double layer fencing has been built.  This is woefully inadequate.
Seriously!

Confusing Illegal Aliens With Legal Immigrants
Obama omitted any mention of the negative consequences of illegal immigration while intentionally confusing illegal aliens with legal immigrants as he pushed for Amnesty in El Paso this week.

"Our immigration system is not broken; it has been sabotaged by politicians like Obama who refuse to honor existing federal laws, the US Constitution, and their oath of office," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC.  "If that is what Obama refers to as 'ugly rhetoric' then so be it."

In Obama’s 30 minute speech supporting Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty (CIRA), he completely refused to acknowledge any of the negative impacts on Americans from illegal immigration.  His speech glorified past waves of legal immigration and the accomplishments of legal immigrants in his efforts to confuse listeners about his Amnesty plans.

"Obama shows us in this speech that he cannot be trusted and that he is clearly aligned with those who are invading the United States, and he represents their interests over the Americans he swore to serve by honoring the Constitution," said Gheen. "His claim that the border is secure is a lie and should be considered another act of treason.  The border is not secured and Americans are dying and losing their jobs and homes over his failure to protect all states from invasion as the Constitution demands."

While Obama extols the number of Border Patrol agents, he fails to acknowledge that agents are ordered to only catch and release most illegal aliens or to simply return illegals to Mexico to reenter the next night.

Obama claims "the fence is complete" which is an incredible lie.

Democrats in Congress and the Senate have recently filed the Dream Act Amnesty bill once again, despite the fact that it has been defeated six times and that numerous certified and scientific polls show 2 to 1 opposition to such legislation among American citizens.

In his speech, Obama does cite his support for Amnesty for illegal aliens and billionaire aristocrats such as Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News.

"If Obama and the Democrats succeed by working with RINO Republicans to pass any form of Amnesty and illegal aliens become legal voters, then there will be no reasonable hope for future borders or immigration enforcement in America," said Gheen.  "Nothing in Obama’s speech addresses this concern.  It is his intention to overthrow the influence of more than 12 million American voters who will be dispossessed of a nation if CIRA passes."

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is gearing up to meet and defeat Obama’s push for Amnesty once again.  The organization has played a central role in defeating Amnesty legislation on many occasions.  For more information about ALIPAC’s efforts or to join our e-m ail alerts please visit www.ALIPAC.us.
Are the borders really secure?
Bob Dane says that the question, "Are the borders really secure?" is probably not the best set-up for the next Geico commercial.  No, they’re really not secure.

Obama would have us believe otherwise.  His immigration speech in El Paso, Texas, bordered as much on deception as it did physically with Mexico, just over the Rio Grande.  Obama did his best to convince Americans that our borders are secure and that interior enforcement is up in order to justify amnesty for illegal aliens to appease his special interests supporters and stoke his voting base.

The problem is that when given close scrutiny, Obama’s claims range from minor omissions to major whoppers.  Here are four Obama immigration claims that just aren't true:

1.  "We are deporting those who are here illegally"

Obama is suggesting that deportations are up.  Not so fast.

The number of deportations in 2009 and 2010 is higher under the Obama administration than at any other time, but it’s not because of increased enforcement.  The higher numbers reflect many removal cases that were already in the pipeline, leftovers from Bush-era enforcement.  Once those removals are complete, one wonders how the deportation numbers can possibly be sustained since few new removal cases are being initiated because large numbers of non-criminal illegal alien cases are being dismissed by executive fiat.  Deportations have, in fact, already declined slightly from 2009 to 2010.

Ultimately, Obama should be deporting illegal aliens and not expect a gold star for simply enforcing the law, nor using basic immigration enforcement as a bargaining chip for amnesty.  Even at a rate of 400,000 removals per year it would still take the federal government 30 years to remove the 12 million illegal aliens currently living in the U.S. (The real number exceeds 23 million)

2.  "We’ve increased the removal of criminals by 70 percent"

True, but with a major catch.  More criminal aliens -- illegal aliens who commit violent felonies -- are indeed being deported but it is to the exclusion of almost all other illegal aliens!

Think of two similarly sized pie charts, each representing overall deportations.  One is 2009, the other is 2010.  The 2010 pie is about the same size but is sliced much differently because DHS deported more criminal aliens in 2010.  This is the basis of the deception. O bama is taking credit for increasing the percentage of criminal aliens removed, hoping we don’t notice that most other illegal aliens are just being ignored.  Thus, the Obama Administration is gradually accomplishing an "administrative amnesty" while simultaneously convincing Americans that enforcement has increased.

Criminal-aliens-only immigration enforcement was never the intent of Congress.  Laws regarding removal apply to all illegal aliens, irrespective of whether they have committed additional crimes.  By selectively choosing classes of people to which the laws apply, the administration is ignoring federal law and conferring upon itself the power to act as it sees fit and as it suits the political whims of Obama.

3.  "The fence is now basically complete"

The fence has basically hit a wall and has for a long time.  There are only 32 miles of the recommended double layer fence built and only 649 miles of single layer fence on a border that’s 2,000 miles long.  DHS’s own estimates show that less than half of the southern border is under operational control.  And entirely lost in the discussion is the Canadian border and U.S. coastlines, unsecured areas that mounting terrorist threats can, and will exploit.

4.  "We’re going after employers who knowingly exploit people and break the law."

Worksite raids have been abolished and replaced with paper audits that impose modest fines that employers simply roll into the cost of doing business.  Employers are given a slap on the wrist and illegal alien employees are simply released.

During a January 2011 hearing of the House Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Immigration, Rep. Lamar Smith (R- Tex.) reported that, "in the area of worksite enforcement, arrests have fallen 77%; criminal arrests are down 60%, indictments are now 64% and convictions have fallen by 68% since 2008."

The media made much of President George W. Bush’s ill-fated 2003 "Mission Accomplished" speech on the USS Abraham Lincoln in which he prematurely proclaimed "an end to major combat operations in Iraq."

Obama’s similar proclamation that our borders are now secure and immigration enforcement has increased deserves no less attention, particularly since the next stage of planned operations is amnesty.
Obama Is Sabotaging The US Immigration System
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) says Obama is sabotaging the US Immigration system and lies about amnesty.

Obama omitted any mention of the negative consequences of illegal immigration while intentionally confusing illegal aliens with legal immigrants as he pushed for Amnesty in El Paso this week.

"Our immigration system is not broken; it has been sabotaged by the likes of Obama who refuse to honor existing federal laws, the US Constitution, and their oath of office," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "If that is what Obama refers to as 'ugly rhetoric' then so be it."

Immigration Court Stats
Jim Kouri is reporting that watchdogs say Obama and Holder are lying about immigration court statistics.

Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice knowingly distort figures to hide from federal lawmakers, state political leaders, and the American people the rampant corruption in this nation's immigration court system, according to a Beltway watchdog group.

The suspected pervasive corruption allows deportable aliens to evade hearings without consequences and permits more than 1 million removal orders to be ignored by the Obama Administration, say officials with Judicial Watch, a public-interest group that investigates public and political corruption.

Adding insult to injury, U.S. taxpayers finance the enormous number of court appeals filed by illegal immigrants -- through their taxpayer financed legal counsel deported -- for criminal convictions and fraudulent marriages.

From 2000 to 2007, Americans doled out $30 million for aliens' court costs, according to a new report from a former immigration court judge -- Mark H. Metcalf -- in south Florida, considered a hotbed within the immigration system.

The veteran jurist says the nation's immigration courts, which are operated by the DOJ, are ruled by deception and disorder and are at the heart of a system that nurtures scandal.  About 250 overwhelmed judges preside over hundreds of thousands of cases annually and rarely are their deportation orders enforced, according to Judicial Watch.

Even after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, 50% of all aliens who were free pending trial disappeared, according to figures provided in the judge's report.  Between 2005 and 2006 the number of aliens who failed to appear at their court hearing grew to 59%.

The Government Accountability Office's report on visa holders states that up to four million aliens remain in the country illegally once their visas expire.

Further, officials at Judicial watch revealed that the DOJ deceptively reported the figure as "only" 39% by combining aliens who were free pending trial with those in custody who were forced by authorities to appear in court.  That allowed the so-called bail-jumpers to appear as a smaller part of a bigger overall figure.

Joe Wilson Was Correct, Obama Lied
FoxNews.com reports that nearly two years after he infamously accused Barack Obama of lying about his health care overhaul, Republican Rep. Joe Wilson claims he was right all along.

The South Carolina congressman was pilloried in 2009 for shouting, "You lie!" at Obama in the middle of a national address after Obama claimed the health care bill would not cover illegal immigrants.

But Wilson is claiming some vindication after the Health and Human Services Department awarded millions to "migrant and seasonal farm worker" health care -- a spokeswoman in the department was cited last week saying patients would not be asked about immigration status and an department official confirmed Monday that the centers receiving the grant money must offer primary care to "all residents" in a given area.

Wilson, on his campaign website, declared the funding announcement proved him right. Though most farm workers are here legally, the Pew Hispanic Center estimates that about a quarter of them are undocumented -- a metaphor for illegal.

"It is inevitable that they will serve illegal aliens," Wilson said. "The president specifically promised the American people that 'Obamacare' would not cover those who are here illegally. He misled all of us."
