Last Friday the Washington Times reported that now not only are illegal immigrant offspring given a free pass to stay in the US, but their parents are as well. The Obama administration, through the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), issued a new policy advising ICE agents to use "prosecutorial discretion" to avoid detaining parents where possible. I was unaware that ICE agents were prosecutors too! But this is the age of Obama, the constitutional scholar, for whom no law is really "law," and "prosecutorial discretion" apparently applies to him too. Obama apparently can pretty much ignore any law he wants.
Where are Republicans in protesting all these illegal moves? Why are they not screaming to the rooftops just how outrageous and illegal this president's activities really are? Obama is singlehandedly dismantling the rule of law while GOP lawmakers stand there like idiots and say nothing. They better wake up, for the Obama administration is making amnesty a fait accompli. Simply by accomodating these millions of illegals he is setting up a major battle for anyone determined to enforce the rule of law subsequent to Obama's departure. As they settle in comfortably in their illegally obtained new digs, they are essentially being told it is "alright" by a major political party. This makes future efforts at enforcement almost a non-starter.
By earning their undying gratitude Obama and the Democrats are also recruiting a ground army to help swing elections in 2014 and beyond. They don't even need to vote. They comprise a massive pool of willing get-out-the-vote activists to energize the millions of Hispanics that generally turn out to vote in low numbers. They speak the language and can appeal directly to legal voters regarding the promises of amnesty. The model for this activity has already been field tested in Arizona, and resulted in an unprecedented upset victory. The Obama administration watched this otherwise obscure local election very closely, and took its lessons to heart.
A huge Hispanic vote can not only win a permanent majority for Democrats, but guarantee even more preferential treatment for Hispanics in the future. This is a nightmare scenario for our country, already reeling from the impossible pressures this group is putting on social services nationwide.
This massive ground organizing effort is right now going on all over the country, but especially in Texas, where a win for Democrats will spell the end for our country. Democrats are not really interested in democracy any more. They are interested in power. And if they obtain their ardently sought "permanent progressive majority," the next election will be the last democratic one in our history. The rest will mirror Cuba.
The Obama administration is the most corrupt, destructive group of people our nation has ever had the misfortune to elect. GOP politicians need to get off their duffs and start speaking truth to power. The GOP House can stop anything. It's about time they start showing that they are on America's side and are willing to use that power to defend us from these self-serving, corrupt monsters.
