What a raging, hypocritical douchebag this guy is.
President Obama asked Congress today for more than $2 billion in emergency funds to manage the surge of illegal Central American immigrants at the South Texas border, and to speed the deportation of those already here.
The president, in a letter sent to Congress, asks lawmakers to revise existing immigration law to give the Department of Homeland Security secretary, Jeh Johnson, new authority to quicken the screening and deportation of unaccompanied migrant children who are not from Mexico.
The White House will send a detailed request for the funds when Congress returns from its holiday recess July 7.
Under current U.S. law, Border Patrol agents are required to take child migrants who aren’t from Mexico into custody, screen them and transfer them to the Department of Health and Human Services within 72 hours.
HHS keeps the children at detention centers until it can unite the children with family or a sponsor in the United States, before they appear in immigration court to determine their status.
Yes, President Asshat wants Congress to give him billions of dollars to accomplish what he has been fighting tooth and nail for years to prevent.
Remember when the regime sued Arizona over its immigration enforcement law?
The U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Arizona aiming to block the state’s controversial new immigration law, which says local law enforcement authorities can detain people suspected of being in the country illegally. The lawsuit thrusts the Obama administration into a highly contentious domestic policy debate just months ahead of a critical mid-term political election.
The Obama administration argues that Arizona lacks the authority to enact immigration laws, a power reserved for the federal government. “Setting immigration policy and enforcing immigration laws is a national responsibility,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. “Seeking to address the issue through a patchwork of state laws will only create more problems than it solves.”
The federal government is asking for an injunction preventing the law from taking effect on July 29.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, the measure’s champion, says that because the federal government has failed to “secure the border” and stop illegal immigration, the state must take enforcement into its own hands. “We will be very aggressive in defending our law,” Brewer said in a Twitter post in which she asked for donations to the state’s legal defense fund.
Then they sued Alabama, too.
The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against Alabama’s new controversial immigration law, essentially fighting Alabama on grounds similar to its legal battle with Arizona over that state’s controversial law.
In both cases, the Justice Department argues that the states are overstepping their authority by wading into something that is a strictly federal responsibility: immigration enforcement.
Gov. Robert Bentley signed the Alabama law in June, but it’s not set to take effect until Sept. 1. The law makes it a crime to be an undocumented immigrant in Alabama and allows law enforcement to detain individuals they have a “reasonable suspicion” of being in the country illegally.
And then South Carolina…
The federal government filed a lawsuit Monday seeking to stop implementation of South Carolina’s tough new immigration law, arguing that the legislation that requires law officers to check suspects’ immigration status is unconstitutional.
Federal officials and state officials had met to discuss the issue a week ago.
The government wants a judge to stop enforcement of the legislation, which requires that officers call federal immigration officials if they suspect someone is in the country illegally following a stop for something else, U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles told The Associated Press.
Need I provide more examples?
Oh, and not only has Obama been fighting to stop the enforcement of our immigration laws since he first took office, but he has actually been encouraging illegals to swarm into the U.S. by the tens of thousands.
The current surge of unaccompanied minors coming into this country was a completely planned event by Obama and now we have the proof.
DHS posted an advertisement for bids from vendors to handle 65,000 “Unaccompanied Alien Children“ on their fbo.gov website on January 29th of this year.
How could the government know back in January that there would be 65,000 unaccompanied children coming in when the most any previous year ever saw 5,000?
Just look some of the specifics:
[…] The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.
[…] In addition, the Contractor shall have personnel who are able to communicate with juveniles in their own designated language(s).
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa suggested that this is part of what is called a Cloward-Piven strategy, which is overwhelming gov’t systems to bring about a collapse and usher in more control.
Of course, this blatant inducement to commit illegal immigration is nothing new, either.
The Mexican government has been working with the United States Department of Agriculture to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.
USDA has an agreement with Mexico to promote American food assistance programs, including food stamps, among Mexican Americans, Mexican nationals and migrant communities in America.
“USDA and the government of Mexico have entered into a partnership to help educate eligible Mexican nationals living in the United States about available nutrition assistance,” the USDA explains in a brief paragraph on their “Reaching Low-Income Hispanics With Nutrition Assistance” web page. “Mexico will help disseminate this information through its embassy and network of approximately 50 consular offices.”
So, now we’re to believe that bombastic Barry intends to start securing the border and deporting the very illegal aliens that he and his cronies have not only been treating like a protected class of people for decades, but have more recently been encouraging to illegally enter the U.S. with federally-sanctioned, taxpayer-funded ad campaigns?
