Poor illegal aliens, following the law is just too hard says our president. Pat is not buying that
Is it really “too hard” to follow the immigration laws of the United States?
Obama thinks so. In his Twitter town hall yesterday he said,
We’ve got an immigration system that’s broken right now, where too many folks are breaking the law but also our laws make it too hard for talented people to contribute and be part of our society. And we’ve always been a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. And so we need comprehensive immigration reform, part of which would allow entrepreneurs and high-skilled individuals to stay here — because we want to be attracting that talent here.
It certainly is not too hard for hundreds of thousands of LEGAL immigrant every year Mr. President!
Each year, about 680,000 U.S. immigrants from all corners of the globe take the Oath of Allegiance, in which they promise to “support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies,” says the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which conducts naturalization ceremonies year-round.
(Bloomberg) — Herman Cain, the beguilingly personable pizza mogul and Tea Party sweetheart who is showing well in the so-far uncompelling Republican presidential nomination campaign, threw a flag early in an interview I conducted with him last week. I had made the dire mistake of referring to him as African-American.
“I am an American. Black. Conservative,” he said, punctuating each aspect of his self-identity. “I don’t use African-American, because I’m American, I’m black and I’m conservative. I don’t like people trying to label me. African- American is socially acceptable for some people, but I am not some people.”
What is it about the word “African” that the candidate doesn’t particularly appreciate?
“Most of the ancestors that I can trace were born here in the United States of America,” he said, hitting those last four words with a hammer. “And then it goes back to slavery. And I’m sure my ancestors go all the way back to Africa, but I feel more of an affinity for America than I do for Africa. I’m a black man in America.”
Amen! African-American is a label designed to separate, along racial lines, I despise labels. The Left loves to label, then divide people to gain power.
