11 Ways Obama Is Promoting Illegal Immigration

The following are 11 ways the Obama administration is doing to promote more illegal immigration:

#1 The Obama administration is using the sequester cuts as an excuse to cut border security to the bone. CNN is reporting that 60,000 border agents will soon be facing mandatory furloughs…
The U.S. government on Thursday notified 60,000 federal workers responsible for securing borders and facilitating trade that they will face furloughs due to government-wide spending cuts.
Customs and Border Protection said it expects furloughs and other austerity will cause delays at ports of entry, including international arrivals at airports, and reduce the number of border patrol officers on duty at any one time.
#2 The Department of Homeland Security says that it will release approximately 10,000 illegal immigrants that are currently being held in detention centers around the nation. The Obama administration says that there is not enough money to hold them any longer. The following is from a recent Fox News article
The Department of Homeland Security has started releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants held in local jails in anticipation of automatic budget cuts, in a move one Arizona sheriff called politically motivated — and dangerous.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Tuesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released more than 500 detainees in his county alone over the weekend. A spokesman for Babeu told that ICE officials have said they plan to release a total of nearly 10,000 illegal immigrants.
If you are outraged by this, you are not alone. In fact, the official at the Department of Homeland Security that was in charge of immigration enforcement and removal operations actually resigned because of all this.

#3 The head of the Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, has implemented a case-by-case review of all deportation cases involving illegal immigrants. Cases involving those that have committed crimes will be prioritized and almost all the rest will be thrown out. In essence, this is a form of “backdoor amnesty” that the Obama administration has put into place without going through Congress. I discussed the details of this “backdoor amnesty” in a previous article
Government officials have now been given a list of 19 factors to use when deciding whether to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deportation cases.
Essentially, what is going to happen now is that illegal immigrants are going to get to stay in the United States if any of the following apply….
-arrival in the U.S. as a young child
-actively “pursuing an education”
-serving or served in the U.S. military
-spouse of someone in the U.S. military
-18 years old or younger
-pregnant or nursing
-victim of a “serious crime”
-serious disability or health problem
-caring for a family member with a serious disability or health problem
As you can see, these categories are so broad that almost all illegal immigrants will be able to fit into at least one of them.
#4 The Obama administration wants immigrants to know that just because they are getting food stamps that does not mean that it will hurt their chances of becoming United States citizens. The following is from a recent Daily Caller article
The United States Department of Agriculture has been working to dispel immigrants’ concerns that getting on Food Stamps will harm their chances of becoming U.S. citizens.
The USDA addresses those fears in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamp, brochures it distributes to Mexican consulates as part of its “partnership” with the Mexican government “to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance.”
In one portion of the brochure, USDA’s text asks, “If I get on SNAP benefits, will I be a ‘public charge?’” The brochure then answers: “No. You and your family can apply for and receive SNAP benefits without hurting your chance of becoming U.S. citizens.”
#5 The federal government actually has a website that teaches immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States. On, immigrants are encouraged to sign up for all of the “government benefits” that they are eligible for. Here is an excerpt from that page
Depending on your immigration status, length of time in the United States, and income, you may be eligible for some federal benefit programs. Government assistance programs can be critically important to the well-being of some immigrants and their families. Frequently, however, there is a lack of information about how to access such benefits. Benefit programs can be complicated and you may be given misleading information about how they operate.
Sadly, once immigrants get on welfare they tend to stay on it for a very long time. For example, one study found that 43 percent of all immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 20 years are still on welfare.

#6 Barack Obama sees the upcoming “immigration reform” bill being pushed through Congress as an opportunity to grant amnesty to millions upon millions of immigrants that have come into the United States illegally…
“‘A bad sequel’ is how American Legion National Commander James E. Koutz described President Obama’s proposal to grant amnesty to people who are in the United States illegally,” according to an American Legion press release from Jan. 30.
“Whether it’s called ‘Pathway to Citizenship’ or some other euphemism, it’s still amnesty,” said Koutz. “It didn’t work when President Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 and it will be even more disastrous if we repeat that mistake again.”
Koutz added that those who came to the United States illegally should not receive the special title of “American citizen.”
#7 An increasing number of U.S. states are now allowing illegal immigrants to get driver’s licenses. This is being done with the blessing of the Obama administration.
#8 Since entering the White House, Barack Obama has steadfastly refused to go after “sanctuary cities” even though there is a federal law that requires him to do so.
#9 Obama has not been afraid to appoint women with links to pro-illegal immigration organizations to very high positions in his administration…
After assuming office, President Obama appointed Congresswoman Hilda Solis as Labor Secretary and Celia Munoz as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs. Both of these women have strong pro-amnesty histories with affiliations with groups such as the National Council of La Raza (The Race).
#10 Recently, the Obama administration announced the very first “unmanned” border station along the Texas-Mexico border…
Get ready for the very first “unmanned” border station on the U.S.-Mexico border. Slated to open at the end of this month, the Big Bend National Park in Texas will be staffed by, you guessed it, computers.
If nobody is manning those stations, who will stop illegal immigrants from coming across?

#11 Not only has the Obama administration refused to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws, they have also sued individual states such as Arizona that have tried to crack down on illegal immigration.

67 Billion Obama Could Have Cut

Obama says any cuts to federal spending would harm women, children and maybe their puppies and kittens  and so far he’s been able to get away with this lie.  But the  government’s own inspectors general are saying differently.

In a report Tuesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee identified $67 billion in rampant waste, fraud and abuse.

Since President Obama took office in 2009, money-saving ideas have continued to sit on a shelf, collecting dust. Four years ago, there were 10,894 recommended reductions, compared with 16,900 reductions, worth an additional $30 billion, awaiting action today.

The auditors’ $67 billion in savings is low-hanging fruit, ripe for the plucking, that could easily fund the Departments of Energy, Transportation and Interior, the Social Security Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Science Foundation and the Small Business Administration in their entirety.

Rep. Darrell E. Issa, the oversight panel’s chairman, says his report only scratches the surface. “We’re looking at about 7 percent of the budget that falls in this category, which means there’s about another $210 billion per year of this kind of waste.”
