Thinking Amnesty Is Winning Issue, Obama Pivots Back To Immigration

So, what we can expect for the next month or so is massive hyperbole, blamestorming, fear-mongering, and denigration of opponents, at least till he gets bored

(The Hill) The White House hopes to bolster President Obama’s political standing by shifting attention from the bruising budget battles of the last month to immigration reform and gun control.

Democrats welcome the pivot after watching Obama’s standing in polls fall amid fights with Congress over the budget and the automatic spending cuts known as the sequester.

They see immigration and gun reform as a better playing field for Obama that could provide political wins for the president.

Anything to avoid the disaster that is the US economy and government spending policies, eh, champ? This will be a typical Obama campaign, long on yammering and short on leading, which, if things hold up according to his pattern, they’ll have a deal done and then Obama will end up scuttling it by demanding more.

But, hey, we should treat illegals nicely, right, because it is a victimless crime, as Democrats say. Right? Right?

(WRAL) For almost 12 years, a Houston elementary school teacher and an illegal immigrant living in Topeka have engaged in a tug of war to claim the identity of Candida L. Gutierrez in a case that has put a face on the growing crime of “total identity theft” in the United States.

On Monday, the real Candida L. Gutierrez saw her identity thief, Benita Cardona-Gonzalez, for the first time. Their encounter came inside a federal courtroom in Wichita, where Cardona-Gonzalez, a Mexican national, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for possessing fraudulent identification documents.

The plea deal Cardona-Gonzalez struck with prosecutors in January gave her less prison time, but guaranteed she would not contest her deportation. She pleaded guilty to an aggravated felony, which typically results in automatic deportation.

When Gutierrez’s identity was stolen, the thief didn’t stop at opening fraudulent credit and bank accounts. Cardona-Gonzalez assumed Gutierrez’s persona completely, using it to get a job, a driver’s license, a mortgage and medical care for her children. She even put the stolen name on the birth certificates of her two U.S.-born children in the spots where they list who’s the mother.

Said illegal ruined the life of Ms. Gutierrez, turning it into a living hell. She and her husband had to fight every year with all sorts of government agencies, with banks, she was turned down for a mortgage, she has to deal with creditors and credit agencies on a constant basis. She even applied for a new Social Security number because of this identity theft. Well, so did Cardona-Gonzalez. SS turned Gutierrez down, but gave it to Cardona-Gonzalez. Gutierrez is even dealing with the issue of being responsible for the home that is in foreclosure that Cardona-Gonzalez purchased.

Extreme? Yes. But Americans have to deal with identity theft by illegals every year.

Teach we WILL have immigration reform. When we do identity theft will drop. and taxed income will increase. Conservatives must realize that the tide has turned against what they have stood for; anti gay, anti science, anti sex, anti women. Teach IF you had children would you break the law to give them a better future?

And Boom! we see the problem with liberals. They have no regard for The Law, only their own selfish desires.

Obama is a smart manipulator. He sees the Repub leadership swaying in their own breezes on whether to legalize 20 million illegal felons.

Obama is a pragmatist. He fights those battles he believes he can win. He sees immigration as an easy battle.

The unions are going to scuttle this deal for us if we let them. They are busy loading up the bill with poison pills as we speak. For obvious reasons they don’t need even more low cost labor flooding the country.

Obama will try to ram it through anyway because he wants to import more votes for his side. This will be a tasty bit of blue on blue action.

If the unions get too cute though the RINO’s will surprise them and get this thing through the Senate. Then they will be up the proverbial creek.

Teach do you think politicians should follow the will of the people or their own will?

John, do you think politicians should do the work people elected them to do (ie pass a budget) or should politicians work to restrict rights and freedoms while rewarding illegal behaviour such as in the case of illegal immigrants?

Is it your belief that law abiding citizens are more of a threat to America than those who commit illegal acts?
