Note - This article is not finished. I inadvertently hit publish before finishing it. The email system got the rss ping and an email went out about it. Rather than have 20,000 people clicking dead links I set it back to published. Editing will continue and the final version will be available tomorrow. But this will give you the jist of things, just ignore typos and such until this notice is removed.
That’s right, no one is speaking the truth and the larger truth it leads to about Obama’s Executive Order on illegal immigration. Before you read on, I want to state there are likely two main types of people reading this…
1. Those that support the decision by President Obama to “act on immigration”
2. Those that oppose the President’s action as unconstitutional and want him impeached or similar.
So here is a warning, no matter which you are, you are likely not going to be happy with this article, you likely won’t believe it but it will be difficult to argue with if you stick to facts rather than emotion and partisanship.
So here is the deal, and I encourage you to read on, when you have your initial knee jerk reaction that is likely to come from this statement.
The effect of Obama’s Immigration Executive Order is largely useless in reality.
Now understand there is a purpose to it and a larger plan and in about 3-4 years the real purpose will become clear to anyone who pays attention to what I am about to tell you. But let’s start out on why this plan doesn’t matter, again I challenge you to dispute the following with fact rather then emotions.
Here are the basics of the presidents order…
- Over 5 million illegal immigrants won’t be deported, most have lived here 5 years and have children whom are citizens
- They can hold a job without fear of deportation
- They have to tell the government where they are
- They can get a social security card so they can can “come out of the shadows” and pay taxes
- They won’t get welfare, access to the affordable care act, etc.
- They have to submit to a background check
That is the basics of the story though no one is really talking about that. In fact finding an article that breaks down the basics to that simple list as it pertains to illegal immigrants is almost impossible. Many are talking about it, but almost no one is talking about what it actually does.
So why doesn’t this matter? Let’s look at each point and the reality behind them.
Over 5 million illegal immigrants won’t be deported, most have lived here 5 years and have children whom are citizens.
This is the crux of the order and well, flatly, Obama might as well have singed an executive order that stated; that we will not build a statue of Osama Bin Laden in the middle of the desert. Further that we shall not encircle the statue with statues of all the former presidents mooning the statue of Saddam.
That is the best analogy I can give you because first it could happen, second there are even likely some that think it would be a good idea but it was never going to happen and never will. Listen the fact that we are not going to deport 5 million immigrants or frankly most of the estimated 11 million in the country is already a known.
I don’t care what you THINK about this issue, the facts are clear, we are never, going to deport 5 million people. Period. So point one does not matter because it was never going to happen anyway.
They can hold a job without fear of deportation.
This doesn’t matter because they already do! We always hear about “hard working immigrants” so why do we believe that they are all just sitting around in rooms somewhere waiting for the governing to say they can go get a job? Right now I know for instance there are illegal immigrants working for various city governments across the nation. This doesn’t matter because the people who can now have a job largely already do if they want to have a job. Many have low end jobs but many have really decent jobs if they are qualified.
They have to tell the government where they are.
This assumes they haven’t already done so and I will be brief on this point because one of the following points will show how much of a fallacy we are looking at here. Let me just say as to the majority of illegal immigrants the government knows who and where they are. In fact since these are the parents of children who attend our public schools, well frankly when those kids are registered for school the government knows precisely where they are.
They can get a social security card so they can can “come out of the shadows” and pay taxes
Ilegal immigrants may want an SSN but they don’t need one to pay taxes. There is something called a ITIN or “individual tax payer identification number”. You see our government will not come after you for your illegal income when you pay them a tax on it. Our overlords will be happy to take your tax money including SSI if you are self employed and doing your own matching. Now you won’t be entitled to social security benefits but our government who won’t deport you still requires you to pay your taxes including your social security taxes. Here is a shocker MANY and I mean MANY illegal aliens do in fact pay these taxes. In any event back to the point of “they have to tell the government where they are” if we give them an ITIN and collect tax from them, we already know!
They won’t get welfare, access to the affordable care act, etc.
Well sounds good right? I mean the one saving grace is this could be summed up in the words of so many politicians, “this is not a hand out, only a hand up”. The problem is they are already getting all of this. Depending on what reports you read 60-70% of house holds headed by illegal immigrants receive some sort of government assistance. In any event since this order only applies to those with children born in the US it is the children that qualify for the assistance anyway. This order doesn’t change that. If you doubt illegals get free health care I invite you simply to visit the “emergency room” at a major hospital in an heavy immigrant area like say Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
They have to submit to a background check
This is just more political cover for Obama. These people are not going to submit to a background check because they don’t need to. What they will do is go on with there lives and simply fall back on this IF something happens to come up that might threaten to deport them. The only reason to do this is if they want a social security card, which won’t entitle them to social security benefits. Perhaps some will because they MIGHT get access to jobs they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. But don’t bet on it. What you can bet on is this, any that do submit to a background check, won’t be any that we are looking for due to criminal activity.
In Other Words this Order Doesn’t Really Do Anything
It just doesn’t! I know if you hate the president that is hard to accept and if you support him it might even be harder to accept. But it doesn’t do anything. We are not going to deport 5 million people and never were going to. Many of these people have jobs, many are already on government assistance and many already pay taxes. We already know where most of them are, they are not “hiding in the shadows” and most won’t end up submitting to a background check or registering with the government.
Again I know if you don’t like President Obama (and I don’t) this is hard to accept. People are just at a point of exasperation on this issue and want to be angry, both sides want to be angry. So those that oppose illegal immigration want to lash out at the President here and those that want amnesty want to make him into a “champion of the cause” but both sides are letting emotions blind them to reality.
The Real Game Plan
If what I claim is true we must ask what the real game plan is. Listeners to my podcast know that I have said for about two years now that…
1. A power shift will put republicans in control of the White House, the Senate and the House by 2016. I also predicted the senate take over in 2014.
2. Once the republicans get control, with a lot of hype about fighting Obamacare and illegal immigration along the way, they will sell out their supporters and actually advance both causes.
I was called crazy for this in the beginning but the pieces are now all falling into place. The truth is both sides of the isle love power, want control of peoples lives and love tax dollars. Government healthcare and amnesty both contribute to those things. So both are for it. The balance for the republicans has been to convince you they are opposed to the democratic versions while working for the same exact result as the democrats. Now the stage is totally set!
Ready, Fire, Move – How Cover Fire Works
In the army I learned about tactics including covering fire. It works like this, if you need to advance to an objective I lay down covering fire, this does two main things. First it keeps the enemies head down so you can move forward. Second it attracts the enemies attention to me, so you can move while I am the target. When I need to move you lay down covering fire for me. To an observer we appear to be two separate individuals but the reality is we we have a singular common objective and are working as one force.
Well friends Obama just gave the republicans all the covering fire they need to sell you out on immigration. The plan is simple, for the next two years the president’s executive order and many other things like “Obamacare” will be attacked by talking heads and politicians. They all know that it is time for a republican president next time around. The stage must be set.
In will come a republican president, he will have a republican congress and a republican senate. All three will swiftly give you Amnesty 2.0. They will say, we really didn’t want to but the previous presidents executive order made it necessary. He made the mess, we have to clean it up but this the last time we ever do this. Just like was said under Regan with his amnesty! They will do it, just wait and see.
Oh and it gets better (actually worse). How? You do realize that Obamacare is wrapped up in this? Republicans have always stated they wanted “health care reform” just not a government take over. See the thing is anytime government “reforms” anything they are taking it over or at minimum taking more control of it. So republican reform is a take over too.
Additionally prominent republicans are all saying “Obamacare is here to stay” while still inferring that if we just have the White House it can still be repealed to the voting masses. Yet it is the first statement that is the truth this time around. It is here to stay and this is going to be the story in 2017.
“The program is a disaster but it has now been in effect since 2013, that is 4 years. We just can’t repeal it at this point. Rates are though the roof, the American people have spoken, we will work to make healthcare affordable by doing out best to repair this broken system.”
Of course this repaired system will need as many mandatory participants as possible. So you will be told that allowing immigrants into it during amnesty 2.0 will help make the program better. Yes the republicans will do what the democrats couldn’t do without them. Give you something akin to blanket amnesty and full government control of the healthcare system, likely dare I say it, with a “public option”, they just won’t call it that.
Please remember all of this in 2016 when you are told that you are now facing “the most important election in our lifetimes”.
