Obama to Make Illegals Legal Before Election Day
There’s no question America’s immigration policy, especially with respect to Mexico, is a mess and in need of reform. The lines are too long and the process is something Kafka might have designed. And as someone who would definitely sneak across any border if it meant a better life for myself and my wife in America, I have no desire to deport the illegals currently among us who have stayed out of trouble and truly embraced the American dream. There’s a way to make this work (but only after we forever seal the border).
But as someone married to a woman born in Mexico, who as a young woman waited in line and followed the law to earn a citizenship she cherishes more than almost anything — the thought of allowing line-jumpers is maddening enough. But for Obama to do this for divisive, cynical, political reasons — that he is CHOOSING to ignore the law of the land he swore an oath to uphold — is perfectly outrageous.
And now, in a climate where Americans and Mexicans who are here legally alike can’t find jobs, Obama has moved into the second phase of his cynical power grab by granting what can only be defined as amnesty for a measly $465.
