President Obama To Dictate His New 'Executive Action' On Immigration Reform - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

It's been a busy day for President Obama and he needs a win... a bright shiny PR moment, surrounded with immigrant children explaining how he is the Pied Piper that will save them all from the despotic servitude they come from. In an unplanned press conference President Obama will address his immigration reform at 1450ET through executive action. No lesser man than Cantor-buster Dave Brat opined that the President's policies "sound nice", like "the Kids’ Act, the DREAM Act, the ENLIST Act," but did little to address the growing influx of children. “The reason we have those thousands crossing the border is because of poor policy in the first place,” Brat added. We are sure Obama disagrees - besides, this has to be good for GDP, right? - The Broken Border Fallacy.

And then there's this...

As NYDailyNews reports,

President Barack Obama will seek more than $2 billion to respond to the flood of immigrants illegally entering the U.S. through the Rio Grande Valley area of Texas and ask for new powers to deal with returning immigrant children apprehended while traveling without their parents, a White House official said Saturday.

Obama will also ask that the Homeland Security Department be granted the authority to apply “fast track” procedures to the screening and deportation of all immigrant children traveling without their parents and that stiffer penalties be applied to those who smuggle children across the border, the official said. Obama’s requests were reported first by The New York Times.

Meanwhile, Pelosi said immigrants’ cases should be handled on a case-by-case basis.

“We don’t want our good nature abused by those who would misrepresent what’s happening in the United States on the subject of immigration to affect how we deal with a refugee problem,” she said.

Let's see now: The gubmint thinks catching illegal immigrants and treating them better than what they had at home prior to returning them to their country is a good deterrent to prevent even more illegal immigration.

Am I missing something?

Meat Hammer's picture

Psst, I don't think they get sent home.

On January 29, 2014, the Federal Government posted an ad on their BizOpps website seeking escorts for unaccompanied illegal alien children. If this doesn’t prove that the entire mess with all the illegals flooding our country was planned months in advance by this administration, nothing ever will...

It won't be used to secure the border(s).

He's TAKING the money.  It's already done.  You should be thankful that he's condescending to even explain why.  Which is most definitely NOT for securing the borders.

I wonder when the Obama logo of the sun coming up over the valley will start being worn as an arm-band during these speeches.

It's sure to be accompanied by the OK Obama® salute: right arm fully extended forward (kind of like the way they did it in those old black & white newsreel clips as seen on The History Channel (...where the past is history)) except with the thumb and index finger touching at the fingertips like an 'OK' hand gesture, while simultaneously clicking the heels together smartly (unless wearing golf cleats) and loudly saying "OK" in a manner reminiscent of a boot camp soldier responding "yes sir" to his drill instructor.

Create problem in the first place, then spend other people's money to solve problem.

I don't see the problem with that.

President Obama created an American utopia that young mexicans and hondruans risk their lives to reach, so yes he "created a problem".

$2B to protect and give opportunity to 47,000 children and their familes is roughly $43k each. Hardly enough but a good start for this year. It's not your money, quit your bitching.

So, break me off $43K and I'll quit my bitching.  Afterall, it's not your money either.

President Obama is man enough to know when he is wrong. He has NGO's scouring South America for young children to import. Once we get them settled in regional internment facilities their parent swill be summoned and the entire family relocated to HUBZone development areas for training and placement as disadvantaged business owners. The promise of the NAU is coming to fruition.

Surely this is MDB.  Anyone seen him lately?

It is my money. Or do you believe in a money tree?

Zirpedge's picture

A federal reserve note is a debt instrument. Money is just a medium of exchange. President Obama thinks about people like you everyday. He thinks about how this new debt will serve for your betterment and for your society. You could show a little respect and gratitude for the service.

Maybe zirpedge is the new MDB.

"President Obama created an American utopia that young mexicans and hondruans risk their lives to reach, so yes he "created a problem"."

I suspect a major factor is the War in Afghanistan. With the removal of the Taliban, poppy production has soared. As a result, Heroin consumption in America has greatly increased, at the cost of an equivelent decrease in Cocaine consumption.

With the quantity of Cocaine consumed in America dropping nearly 50%, the revenues have collapsed. Honduras has been the biggest loser in this transition, with an astronomical homicide rate for several years running now.

Meanwhile, the financial system has shut out the drug lords, who are no longer able to launder their money and spend it into their local economies - like that Mexican drug lord who had $18 Billion USD in paper bills stacked in his mansion.

Whether increased immigration is an intended consequence or unintended side-effect of the Afghan war, who knows.

no way that guy had $18 billion in his house.
