Obama to speak Thursday night on immigration

After months of delay, the White House on Wednesday announced that President Obama will speak to the nation at 8 pm ET to lay out his plans for immigration reform, as officials indicated his executive actions could shield upwards of 5 million people now living illegally in the United States.

“Tomorrow night, I’m going to be announcing, here from the White House, steps we can take to fix our broken immigration system,” the President said in a video posted on the White House website.

“What I’m going to be laying out is the things that I can do – with my lawful authority as President – to make the system work better,” Mr. Obama said while sitting on his desk in the Oval Office.

The announcement came as Republicans lobbed more verbal warning shots at the White House over immigration reform, arguing unilateral action was a political mistake.

“The latest indications that you will take executive action on immigration later this week are a slap in the face to the American people and the Constitution,” said Rep. Robert Goodlatte (R-VA) and Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) in a letter to Mr. Obama.

No point in paying any attention to  this fatuous clown, for all you'll hear are the usual lies & typical, nonsensical, meaningless, political rhetoric. To me it's creepy to hear him speak so I never listen. He's a symptom of the country's decline.

If this University Professor Jonathan Gruber, the key creator of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), has been caught stating on at least two occasions that Americans are ‘STUPID’. Then President Obama, disavowed on knowing the man, as did prominent members of the Democratic hierarchy Sen. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Barbara Boxer. Gruber visited the White House 19 times and had a face to face contact with President, at least twice. The American people believing the massive expenditures for this health care Act, is er—affordable? Well we know different now? Since the beginning of this Administration, they have taken the majority of the population for granted. We have been continuously lied to, deceived and given the finger. And it’s still going on?

Then what can we expect with this fast approaching illegal alien amnesty? Of course what I have read the cost is out-the window.  It is somewhere in the neighborhood of $9 TRILLION DOLLARS? From the time they get Social Security Cards, work permits and the majority of welfare programs to the time they retire.  The Problem is; gigantic problem is in a 50 year period, their collected taxes are estimated to be $3.7 trillion dollars. So US taxpayers have no choice, but to cover the rest. Our country is on the edge of bankruptcy, but may be this is what this Socialist-Communistic group wants?

First the new Congress must cut the ‘purse strings’ for all costs to any new Executive Order, especially for another mass amnesty. BUT DON’T BE BLIND-SIDED FROM THE AUGUMENTS OF THE CAREER REPUBLICANS, AS THEY HAVE NO INTENTIONS OF WANTING TO HALT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ALTOGETHER?  THEY TOO WANT AN UNRESTRICTED FLOW OF LABOR AND WILL SHELTER THEIR OWN DARK PLAN BY BLAMING THE WHITE HOUSE, WHEN ESSENTIALLY THEY ARE IN AGREEMENT OF ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY?

OH! YES! THIS ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY CAN BE REVERSED.

After working all my life in commercial Shipping, paid my dues to the IRS and kept bread on my families table, I resent wholesale that people who broke the law get rewarded. We now live in a nation, where it’s easier to become a parasite and feed off the workers taxes. Getting something for nothing has never been simpler? WHAT WILL THE NEXT AMNESTY BE—10 MILLION ILLITERATE PEOPLE?

Don’t, we already have enough urban sprawl, water shortages; highways jammed to the limits and a broken infrastrure that desperately need repair and fixing? Don’t we have enough heinous criminal in our prisons and jails, without adding to the populations? Obama added 7 Trillion dollars to the federal treasury previously and now he is going to up it another 9 Trillion? Please God, tell me where it’s coming from? We already have insurmountable poverty in the US and we are adding more?
