This spring President Obama alluded to his intentions of taking up immigration reform, aka Amnesty, in November or December of this year. Yet, administration officials have not publicly discussed the subject in months and now with votes looming on current health insurance proposals, administration officials are taking steps in preparation of an immigration bill.
The President has made clear that he wants a bill that will not cover illegal aliens, yet, every proposed bill on the table does not require verification of citizenship. In fact, each and every time that House and Senate Republicans have offered amendments that specifically bar illegal immigrants and require verification, they have been rejected. Yet, the legislative language and legal verification will not mean a thing if the Congressional Democrats and the President grant amnesty to the 12-17 million illegals living in the United States.
The administration and Democrat congressional leaders are pushing for passage of Health Care legislation prior to November 15th, which would fit the timeline for the introduction and attempt to ramrod an amnesty bill down Americans' throats during the holiday season when many Americans are focused on other issues. This past week, Kathleen Sebelius slipped up during a press conference and alluded to the administration's plans to push for amnesty. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security ordered Arizona sheriff Arpaio to halt his roundup of illegals and then announced plans to reform detention procedures of illegal immigrants.
This week news flowed out of Chicago that immigration reform activists are pushing for passage of a resolution calling upon Washington to enact immigration reform and grant amnesty. Considering President Obama's allegiance to the Chicago political machine, it is safe to assume that he will be supportive of their efforts.
The movement of the administration towards granting amnesty to illegal aliens is directly tied to the health care reform debate. Current CBO estimates of each plan are based upon the exclusion of illegal aliens. If the administration were successful in pushing their amnesty agenda it would add tens of billions, if not hundreds of billions of dollars to the cost of the programs. The lack of transparency and disclosure by the administration in regards to this agenda is a travesty and represents the worst of our political system. The administration understands that if the American people were to recognize the correlation between health care and immigration reform plans, they uprising would be severe. Then again, how are the American masses able to recognize such a correlation when the media has become the lapdog of the President.
The writing is on the wall and the move towards amnesty is inevitable. Higher taxes, higher premiums, cuts to Medicare and the inclusion of illegal aliens are not the change that Americans voted for....or at least what those blinded by celebrity thought they were voting for.
