It doesn’t take much common sense to see what Obama was up to with his “deferred action” executive order allowing children of illegal immigrants to come out of hiding and stay two years in the U. S. while hopefully working. It was strictly a political move to grab votes in November since he sees cracks in his veneer being exploited. Why else would he go after the Hispanic vote? His record of deportations shows he didn’t care that much about them before.
Now we have 80,000 illegal young immigrants crawling out of their holes in Arizona wanting everything legal citizens get just because Obama is in a bind. The sobbing sentimentalists continue to sing the same sad song that “they were brought here illegally through no fault of their own.” That’s true, but whoever said that life is fair? Their parents should have thought of that instead of selfishly putting their own interests ahead of their kids.
The parents broke the laws of the United States of America by coming here illegally. That illegality has cost American taxpayers millions in welfare expenses. Now, we are supposed to accept their kids in addition to that? There is a limit to the patience Americans can bear.
Keep it peaceful, Sheriff Joe is watching.
So, in typical fashion, the protesters have once again taken to the streets of Phoenix complaining about Governor Brewer’s not allowing them to get drivers licenses and the inability of them to get in-state tuition to go to school. Don’t they know that illegals can’t get driver’s licenses? That is pretty elementary information. Just reference the brouhaha over SB 1070 for details. Regardless of what Obama says, they are still considered illegal.
As far as in-state tuition, it’s the same story as they are lucky to even get the $317 per credit hour nonresident fee. If an American citizen from Utah, New Mexico, or any other state comes here for school, they pay out of state fees. So, why should illegals get the in-state fee of $76?
One 21 year old illegal female said “It’s really, really disappointing to not be able to get a driver’s license.” A 24 year old male exclaimed “She (Governor Brewer) shattered my dreams today.” I have a suggestion for both of them: Quit whining and be glad you got what you did.
I don’t know who is advising these people telling them that they can just walk into the United States and get handed all the luxuries of taxpaying citizens. They are lucky we have a president who would not even have given them that if not for his hope of political gain. Yadira Garcia, who is illegal, seems to “get it” when she said “It’s a reality check for everyone who thinks deferred action is the best thing out there.”
In addition to the items mentioned above, other public benefits are also not available such as subsidized child care, unemployment benefits, KidsKare, and a children’s health insurance program. To those who think that is a bad deal, pay attention. Spell this word: I-L-L-E-G-A-L. Sorry, but that’s life.
One thing that will not help the members of the deferred action group is any type of violent protest imvolving burning and/or defecating on the American flag. They are getting one hell of a benefit just being able to walk the streets without fear of being arrested. If they are smart, they will be industrious and make the best of what they have and hope for better in the future. If not, there are plenty of immigrants waiting at the border to get their opportunity to become citizens the correct way.
