Another Word from the President on Immigration, Amnesty

President Obama magnanimously suggested Tuesday he’s still willing to compromise on immigration reform:

President Obama suggested Tuesday he’s willing to compromise on immigration reform, telling a group of law-enforcement officers that he’s “not hell bent” on getting every word of a Senate bill to his desk.

But Mr. Obama said among his core principles that must be part of the law is a “fair” pathway to citizenship for those living in the country illegally.

The president said there’s a “narrow window” remaining for Congress to act on legislation, and he’s encouraged that Speaker John A. Boehner and other House Republican leaders “are recognizing that blocking immigration reform is not an option.”

He’s “not hell bent” on getting every word of a Senate bill to his desk?  Well, that’s a relief since the Senate’s 1,000-plus page bill is basically Obamacare 2.0 — from its extreme cost to taxpayers to its carve-outs for special interests.

And of course, he’s threatening us with a (subjectively defined) “narrow window” of time to get something done.

Quick!  Let’s pass a bill that would totally and completely undermine the rule of law, reward illegal behavior, and massively burden American taxpayers.

Of course, if Congress doesn’t “compromise” with the Obama administration, they plan to use executive action to get their way.

The ramifications of the President’s lawlessness are serious.  As the Washington Times reports:

On Monday, a report showed that immigration officials knowingly released dozens of murderers back into the U.S. in 2013 despite the administration’s promises that it has been focused on deporting people with criminal records.

Illegal immigrants released from custody by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have amassed thousands of drunken-driving convictions and domestic violence convictions and have also been convicted for numerous acts of homicide and manslaughter.

Instead of rushing to pass terrible legislation and refusing to enforce current immigration law, the President and his administration should enforce current law and secure the border.

  1. Law are in place and have been for more than just a few years now. It would be unfortunate for families to be torn apart, as it is so described, but is it not wrong to reward law breakers with the same benefits as those who stood in line, waited the years and paid the price to be here legally?
