It's funny somehow when "news" is really old news. The Blaze has reported that Obama's aid to illegal aliens could be one of his biggest scandals to date. When is this administration not involved in one scandal or another? And, which one could qualify as the "biggest" is a toss-up. The real "news" would be if this administration actually did something within the legal boundaries. So what is this aid to illegal aliens that Obama has provided that would place it on the big scandal list?
As it turns out, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) released a report on Monday stating the "Obama administration has operated a 'shadow' immigration system for years" and has issued millions of work permits to illegals and "aliens of unknown legal status." Under information received through the Freedom of Information Act, the government data obtained by CIS indicated the administration had issued, at its discretion, 5.5 million work permits to "aliens with varying legal status since 2009."
So, while America is suffering under the highest unemployment rate among Americans and Obamacare is gnashing away at full-time employment, the Obama administration issued work permits to illegal aliens – some on visas that did not authorize employment.
According to The Blaze:
The report was released just as the Obama administration is preparing to implement an immigration plan that could provide legal protection to up to 5 million illegal immigrants and give them work permits. Republicans have said this plan would only make it easier for non-legal residents to take jobs from Americans, although the CIS data shows this is already happening under Obama.
"I was astonished at the huge number of work permits that are being issued by the Obama administration outside the legal immigration system through executive discretion, especially at a time of high unemployment and stagnant wages," said Jessica Vaughn, director of policy studies at CIS. "Besides the effect on the American worker, it encourages and rewards more illegal immigration."
Here is a summary of what CIS uncovered.
- US Citizenship and Immigration Services issued 5,461,568 new work permits to aliens in addition to the approximately 1.1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers the US admits legally each year;
- Out of that 5.5 million, 1.8 million permits were issued to illegals with temporary status; however, 1.2 million of those permits were issued to illegals whose visas did not authorize employment;
- 982,000 permits were issued to illegals who were not qualified for admission into the US since the entire group crossed the border illegally;
- 1.7 million illegals received permits who had an unknown legal status.
The Senate is slated to begin consideration of a House-passed bill that would defund Obama's immigration plan. However, this does not address the previous illegal actions perpetrated by Obama and lawless Departments of Homeland Security and Justice. One can be sure Democrats will oppose any bill that sets out to defund this lawlessness meaning this bill may not make it past the Senate.
The CIS indicates Congress has the opportunity to halt the Democratic effort to expand work permits and protect American jobs by blocking the law; and, Congress should.
According to the CIS report, "These statistics indicate the executive branch is operating a huge parallel immigration work authorization system outside the bounds of the law and limits written by Congress. It inevitably reduces job opportunities for Americans."
Yawn…so what else is new? It's no secret that Obama and those in his administration operate outside the laws of this nation and have for quite some time. It's no secret the Oval Office puppet is working to destroy America from within. And, it's no secret that unbridled illegal alien invasion, along with this lawless issuance of work permits, reduces job opportunities in America. Everyone seems to ignore the elephant in the room which is the complicity of Congress – Democrats and Republicans alike. While they have whittled away American job opportunities, these charlatans have fattened their portfolios, wallets and pockets. But, that's how it works in nations "ruled" by powerful central governments, the elite and powerful megacorporations.
What's even more amazing is the championing of this lawlessness by the useful idiots known as progressive liberals. It's okay to violate the laws if it "feels good." Besides, everyone knows that US immigration laws are broken…yada, yada. Anyone who doesn't fall in line with "multiculturalism" is a racist bigot. Never mind that millions of Americans are unemployed or underemployed – they don't matter. Ideology over practicality is their motto. It's okay for American families and children to suffer as long as these illegal alien invaders get "their right" to work because they are in this country. Everyone must be equal and all are entitled to the same rights as citizens. That is until the shoe gets placed on their foot and their families and children suffer. But then, their solution is to riot in the streets and loot and destroy businesses. They forget they wanted everyone to be equal, which means equal in misery as well.
Every member of Congress, every department head, Obama, Biden, Jarrett, every White House staff member, and anyone else complicit in this lawlessness needs to be removed from office, brought up on charges of treason and insurrection, tried and if found guilty, hung by the neck until dead on the mall in Washington, DC. No quarter should be given for "I was doing what I was told" or "I was just doing my job" or even, "I didn't know." They all know they are guilty and enjoy a good laugh at our expense.
But, the last laugh may be on them as everyone knows what happens to the useful idiots during change. They are the first to be eliminated and their fat wallets, portfolios and pockets are confiscated, along with what little everyone else has managed to accumulate.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
