Last night, on national television, a smug President Obama announced his highly controversial immigration amnesty reform by Executive Order.
The president's amnesty order effectively removes the barriers that once prevented illegals, terrorists and violent criminals from entering the United States.
Not only can illegals travel freely into the U.S. but they can also obtain work permits and driver's licenses.
The worst part of the president's order is the financial and economical impact it will have on low income blacks and Hispanics who are here in the U.S. legally.
Anyone who lives in a major metropolitan city is familiar with the mob of Mexican laborers who stand on street corners before dawn hoping to be chosen to work (illegally) cleaning up construction job sites. These men were happy to work for pennies on the dollar because they did not have "papers" (work permits) and documents to be in the U.S. legally. Those days are over, thanks to Obama.
According to published reports, more work permits will be handed out by the U.S. government than there are jobs created.
From the Daily Caller:
The plan… will distribute five million work permits to illegal immigrants*, and also create a new inflow of foreign college graduates for prestigious salaried jobs, according to press reports.
Obama has already provided or promised almost one million extra work permits to foreigners*, while his economy has only added six million jobs since 2009.
Republicans vowed to take action against Obama's lawless behavior. Sheriffs from Maryland to Massachusetts called Obama's amnesty reform a "destruction of our Democracy," and warned it would create a "gaping hole" for "terrorists" to enter the U.S.
"The message the President’s action will send is this: if you can get to the border, you’re home free," said Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu. "It completely undermines the rule of law and makes the job of every law enforcement officer – which is already difficult – impossible."
