Barack Obama to Ask Congress for $2 Billion in Tax Payer Money to Fix Illegal Aliens Problem Because He Wouldn’t Enforce the Law

Talk about Cloward and Piven on immigration… Reuters is reporting that Barack Obama will ask Congress for more than $2 billion to deal with the influx of illegal alien children that are flooding our borders. First, he doesn't enforce the law that would stop this mess, now he's demanding that we pay for it!

The flood of illegals coming across our southern border has overwhelmed Border Patrol to the point where they are no longer even attempting to stop the invasion (Yes, that's what it is) of illegal aliens coming into the United States.

Obama is set to make the request for $2 billion in US taxpayer money in a letter on Monday, following the holiday recess on July 7.

As our borders become more and more insecure, Obama is alleged to pursue greater authority for immigration officials to deal with a speedy deportation of children who have been caught crossing the border from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Mexico? No comment. However, one must consider what will happen to these children? Dave Hodges may have some input on that.

Obama is also said to want increased penalties for "coyotes" who smuggle children across the border for profit.

While Obama's spokesman said that Obama will also request "sustained border security surge through enhanced domestic enforcement," as well as increasing the number of immigration judges to deal with this, one has to wonder why he hasn't been enforcing immigration laws to begin with.

In May, Suzanne Hamner reported on Obama's position when it comes to enforcing immigration laws. Citing The Daily Caller:

"Cops should be going after major criminals, not the many illegal immigrants that are quietly living in their districts," said Obama, who has twice sworn to uphold the nation's laws.

"You've got to spend time dealing with somebody who is not causing any other trouble other than the fact that they were trying to make a living for their families," Obama said.

"That's just not a good use of our resources. It's not smart. It doesn't make sense," said Obama, who has already directed immigration police to minimize the enforcement of illegals living far from the border.

The Wall Street Journal reports:
A record number of minors—more than 52,000 children since the fiscal year began in October—are streaming across the border, most of whom enter through the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. U.S. law requires that apprehended children be turned over to the Department of Health and Human Services, which places them with sponsors in the U.S.—usually family—while their deportation cases are heard. Clogged immigration courts and the wide array of legal avenues to extend children's stay in the U.S. can mean these young migrants can be north of the border for years.

Administration officials and other experts worry that the backlog may encourage parents to send their children on what can be a perilous—and even fatal—journey to the U.S., often in the hands of abusive smugglers.

The White House says it will ask for authority to return children to their home countries more quickly. This will apply to countries that aren't contiguous to the U.S., as U.S. law already allows for a quick return to Mexico, given the shared border.

The White House has also asked for a "sustained border security surge," a request likely to be welcomed by congressional Republicans, who have said the increase in border crossings is diluting the ability of the border patrol to maintain security.

So, isn't this good news? It depends on what ideology you hold to. Obama isn't taking any responsibility for this, even though his administration has been working with the Mexican government to encourage illegal immigration and all the goodies that is can provide to those crossing the border illegally. He has failed to enforce immigration laws, which does nothing more than encourage more illegal activity, even if those engaging in it are only "trying to make a living for their families."

Because of Obama's failures to enforce immigration policy, according to an oath he has taken twice, he now wants you and me to pay for his dereliction of duty. I don't know about you, but I say that the proper payment would be impeachment of a president, not a lawsuit, who has broken the law by not enforcing it.

Quick poll for Domestic Terrorist On Meth:

Is the number of deportations up or down under Obama?

Has Obama deported more people than George W Bush?

wingers HATE FACTS! They live on pure emotion. Extremists NEVER allow facts to get in the way of their opinions. Usually, they start in on the mindless personal attacks to divert attention from your facts.

In so many ways, our current POTUS has done so much more than did his predecessor. I seem to remember Osama Bin Laden "hiding out" in plain sight in a nation that the W Administration courted as a so-called ally. W and his people did not have the intestinal fortitude to order Osama hunted down in violation of the sovereignty of a so-called "friendly" nation. But Barack Hussein Obama ordered Osama to be taken dead or alive in a so-called "friendly" country. That's real leadership! (I guess Obama is not a very good Muslim, having Osama hunted down and killed like that, huh?)

Between 2001 and 2008, there were 8.3 million "returns" and 2 million "removals." Between 2009 and 2012, there were 1.6 million "returns" and 1.6 million "removals." If you're counting total number of illegals kicked out of country, Bush wins easily. If you're counting the number of illegals who received a hearing before being kicked out -- what some consider an official deportation -- Obama should win in a squeaker over Bush.

Patience is a great virtue.

Either metric doesn't matter.

We should be looking at % of illegals deported vice total numbers. If illegal immigration jumped up by 200% in the last 6 years then we should expect the total number deported to go up by a comparable percentage. Likewise if the total numbers crossing the border went down and the number of deported went up then we are looking at a significant achievement.

However the problem with that metric is the total numbers of those crossing the border will always be an estimate. We're talking illegal which means uncontrolled. We can take a best guess by a sample but there will always be a margin of error.


Riiiight, if illegal immigration goes up then deportations should go up IF FUNDING FOR RESOURCES MATCHES THE DEMAND FOR THEM.

Just like if food prices go up then my lifestyle is maintained if my pay goes up... if my pay stays the same then I have to go eat ramen.

There are a few things the GOP will definitively fund. Securing the border would be one. Your post is disingenuous.

The only people in the President's way of that are people from his own party. Of course if Congress were truly "Republican Controlled" as you and the President claim their hesitance would be a non-issue.

No, we now know what the President does intend to do with illegal immigration. From the GOP/Koch run Washington Post

Apparently the recent rulings didn't teach the President anything. Now depending upon how he rights those EOs he may be constitutionally sound but I believe it will push the likelihood of the Congress becoming actually Republican controlled come November.


Number of GOP immigration bills voted on or proposed: ZERO

Once again, they are not the leaders of the country, the President is.


The Republican House will not give up the 2 billion for this asinine idea.

Not 2 billion, but I can see them proposing additional spending tightly tied to border security.


How many times were elements of the ACA revised or delayed by the administration after the fact, without the bother of asking Congress to approve amendments? Do you actually believe a border-security bill would be implemented and enforced the way Congress intended?

Patience is a great virtue.

It can be done. It requires strict wording and if they're smart it should include Congressional checks but it can be done.


That's why we need the fence built.

Let me guess: you are either a moron or own stocks in the fencing, ladder building, and shovel-making industries?

No, fences work. That might be the reason there is a FENCE around the White House. HUMMMMM?
