The federal law requires that everyone applying for government benefits be given an opportunity to register to vote. Government workers processing claims for public benefits are prohibited from even asking applicants if they are U.S. citizens. Some illegals registered this way ended up voting.
Obama’s decree will give work permits to young undocumented aliens who can demonstrate they have been in the U.S. for at least five years, lack a criminal record, graduated from a U.S. high school, earned a GED, or served in the military.
“These are young people who study in our schools, they play in our neighborhoods, they’re friends with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag. They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.”
The new policy is intended to help young people who are “talented, driven and patriotic,” Obama said.
Obama’s statement assumes a lot.
Only a leftist could say with a straight face that breaking the law by being in the U.S. without authorization, possibly engaging in identity fraud, and evading the police were “patriotic” acts.
As former INS official Michael Cutler wonders, “How could anyone know how talented, driven and patriotic millions of illegal aliens are whose true identities, backgrounds and affiliations are unknown and unknowable?”
It needs to be pointed out that many left-leaning lifelong American citizens don’t feel any particular loyalty to the United States. It stands to reason that someone who has been living in any country for a mere five years doesn’t necessarily feel loyalty to that country.
And according to studies, Mexican immigrants –legal and otherwise— who are likely to benefit disproportionately from the new amnesty, don’t easily blend into American society. Often they (and their children) self-identify as “Mexican” or “Mexican-American” into the fourth generation.
Now that the traditional American melting pot has been largely supplanted by multiculturalism and racial separatism pushed by race-baiting leftist groups such as National Council of La Raza, MEChA, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and state-level groups like the Hugo Chavez-funded CASA de Maryland, it is especially difficult to assume that those who will benefit from the amnesty are Americans in their hearts and minds, to use Obama’s phrase.
Many won’t want to assimilate at all.
And that’s just fine by the man in the Oval Office who wants to “fundamentally transform” America.
