Most Americans want Washington to focus on fixing our struggling economy and decreasing the federal budget deficit.

So why is the Obama administration focusing on ramming through an amnesty bill? Because an amnesty bill will divert attention from Obamacare’s mounting failures.

Unfortunately for the American people, this “comprehensive” immigration legislation would be just as dysfunctional as Obamacare. The Heritage Foundation’s Cameron Seward explains how this amnesty plan would be just as costly as Obamacare:

As we continue to see with Obamacare, the American people are always at the losing end of these monstrous pieces of legislation.

An all-or-nothing approach to immigration reform will hurt Americans by disregarding the rule of law and costing taxpayers trillions in benefits and services for those granted amnesty, while not guaranteeing enforcement of laws already on the books.

A complicated amnesty bill like the one liberals are pushing would essentially be Obamacare 2.0 — another unworkable, unfair, and unaffordable piece of legislation. For a positive path forward to immigration reform, check out Heritage’s plan.

After the failures of Obamacare, do you think the Obama administration can handle complicated legislation like its immigration reform proposal?

Obama is always trying to divert attention to the most crucial problem at hand.That is the NATIONAL DEBT. He pushed Obamacare through without addressing the debt issue. Now, he is trying to push immigration reform. The immigration laws need to be enforced. When the white house is widening the loop holes in existing immigration laws, new laws are meaningless!!! We need to FOCUS the nation toward the GOVERNMENT DEBT.That is what weakens AMERICA!

There are two documents every patriot should read, no
intently study and understand and Cary both in their pocket for quick reference.. 1) A copy of Saul Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals. 2) A copy David Horowitz”s Barack Obama’s “RULES FOR REVOLUTION”, the Alinsky Model. Armed with that knowledge the Democrats, the Obama (s) and the RINO’s would loose their power structure (fear). The GOP could incorporate the Tea Party and the Libertarians for a strong cohesive party that would be difficult for a leftist party to overcome in an election. The good old boys (and girls) with their elitist syndrome and have left the people behind. Being a politician doesn’t make a person smart nor different, in my observation they talk and treat the general public like uneducated buffoons in their attempt to hide their own lack of general knowledge and truth the Constitution.

The Democrats, Progressives and and good deal of the Republicans have Never been so well organized. They continue to roll out one plan after another that brings us closer to a Marxist State and an America void of the Liberties, Freedoms and Privacy’s set forth in our Constitution. As Conservatives, all we can do is “react” to their offensive moves, always being three steps behind. How do we reverse the table here by re-instilling our American Values,Ethics, Principals and Constitutional laws in addition to our religious freedoms? The only thing I can suggest is that we turn to God in Prayer and seek His help DAILY.

Since when is pushing one more unpopular bill through going to distract from all his other failures? And if he has failed in every other way, why should he all of sudden be allowed a pass on something so important as this immigration bill. We don’t want it, we don’t need it, what we do need is HIS IMPEACHMENT!!!!!!! IS ANYONE LISTENING…..IS ANYBODY THERE..?

Do you think the Obama administration can handle complicated legislation like its immigration reform proposal?

What is so complicated about granting 20 million Illegal Aliens amnesty and voting rights prior the 2014 congressional elections?

We could stop this stampede easily by mandating our college students harvest our crops during summer vacation and eliminate the necessity of government student loans. Oh, you argue, they are too smart to work?

Like Obama-care, it would be a long time before we would know how effectively and if the administration can ever implement the complicated immigration policy. In the end if the people like the result of the policies, then the liberals are likely to stay in power. If they are disastrous failures, the public will not like the result, and that would greatly improve the chances of a conservative wine in the 2016 Presidential election.

It is one thing to not punish violators of the law. It is worse to reward violators of the law as is being advocated with amnesty. If someone steals a car it would one thing to not punish the car thief. It
would be worse to allow the car thief to go unpunished AND to be rewarded by keeping the stolen car.

No, I do not personally believe so. Why had God been removed from our consideration of every cause, resulting in the current effects of tragic dysfunctional decision- making? How can this socialistic Godless administration hope to recover what it did not have in the first place…respect and dignity of and for the first fathers’ laws based on God and honor.

I agree totally that this will be the agenda of the president. It is continuely amazing to me how this radical American has so quickly administered his ideas.
His plans for America are based on hatred and destain for Americans …and our Constitution. However, he is supported by many in America as are our higher levels of education institutions, 60s’ in the street rebels and radicals, and new Democrates/Progressives with socialistic-communistic ideology. I am so frieghtened for the youth of America and their future. I will survive this as I am old but not our youth nor our nation. I pray for America daily.

Are you kidding? The Fed can’t handle Amtrak or anything else. Why would we think they can handle immigration or health care. Just look at what they have done to SSA benefits or Medicare. SSA is the fund that my employer & I paid in over $200,00 that would be worth over $1 Million if it sat in a bank at marginal interest; and I won’t even get to draw my $200,000 out.

We need to fire all these “crooks and clowns” and start all over again.

obamacare’s failure from whose perspective? From the marxist-leninist standpoint the administration is wildly successful. So the answer is yes to their ability to perform immigration reforms to suit their plans. There are plenty of useful idiots that will support the same from both sides of the aisle.

This administration does not care about success or failure of any of its programs as opposed to their disruptive effect on our culture. It is a marxist regime with the objective of “divide and conquer”. obamacare is a dictatorial takeover attempt on our Republic and amnesty, as serious and insidious as it really is, is now being used as a diversion to attention on obamacare. After obamacare, amnesty will be on the front burner and gun control will be the next “diversion”, and will then move to the front burner. And on goes the “Rules for Radicals” agenda of this administration.

This administration seems able only to handle lies and propaganda, thuggish tactics, smearing of opponents, corrupting everything it touches, trashing the American people and dictating whatever it wants. Governing and leadership are absent from its vocabulary. Sadly, a too cowardly Republican party seems to be going along to get along rather than standing up and fighting like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Louis Gomert, Steve King and a few more. Those men can handle the complicated issues.

the United States Constitution, article 4, section 4 states ( the United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a REPUBLICAN FORM of govermment,and SHALL PROTECT each of THEM AGAINST INVASION)
Even one illegal invading our land and our job or welfare and SS system is an invasion; just as it would be an invasion of your land to find someone in your backyard your garage or house, or your apartment. we are under fire by a bad adminstration and they will not stop.

Obama’s proclivity to provide everything for everybody in the country is obviously philanthropic, unrealistc and unaffordable! Seems like the Americans with courage are not elected to an office that can (or will) put a stop to this worrisome stream of events. Our government is now supported by an ever diminishing taxpayer base, while the over spending continues with little abatement. Even if we had a tax system where everybod pays, this spending foolishness can still sink the country. Shame on them, shame on us (the American people) for putting up with this nonesense!!!
