Video Podcast – White House Immigration Framework is a Colossal Joke

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

What can be said about the White House Framework on Immigration Reform & Border Security. The only word I can think of is that it’s a travesty.

The framework is shaping up to be just another big government boondoggle devoid of conservative substance and replete with liberal giveaways.

The Framework, with its coddling of illegal aliens and reward of citizenship is, or should be, a personal affront to any American citizen, and especially to every legal immigrant. Most who spent years of time and much money to do it the right way.

I’m praying that I wake soon and realize this has all been a bad dream, because as it stands, it is merely a bad joke. read more

The White House Immigration “framework” proposal begins with the following:

The Department of Homeland Security must have the tools to deter illegal immigration; the ability to remove individuals who illegally enter the United States; and the vital authorities necessary to protect national security.

Wow. That sounds quite forceful, and comprehensive. And it is…comprehensive. Unfortunately, in Washington, comprehensive doesn’t mean what we think. To politicians, comprehensive is code for overly and purposely complicated, filled with loads of crap that detract from the President’s originally stated intent. That was, of course, to build a great wall along the entire Southern border and deport people here illegally. As illegal immigration is one of my “hot buttons,” it was one of the primary reasons I voted for him. read more
