Surprise! Even though we only have the resources to deal with criminal immigrants, Homeland Security has launched a new initiative to further devalue Americans destroyed by Barack Obama’s economy. The latest swipe at our national confidence is “Study in the States,” another plan to use foreigners to restore America’s greatness (see: StartUp Visa Act Shuns America’s Entrepreneurs).
Do you want to feel like your tax dollars have value? Would it be nice to think, if only for a moment, that the state you live in regards you as more than a revenue source? Do you refuse to accept the president’s assertion that America is doomed unless we wave the wand of citizenship over millions of illegal immigrants?
How far will the bar be lowered so the country can afford Barack Obama’s reelection ploys? Last week he offered us his idea of a carrot, a new jobs bill. Next week we get whacked with the stick when he tells us who will pay. We do not need the American Jobs Act, or any bill laden with agenda, favors, and spending for special interests.
With 9.1% unemployment on her watch, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is busy backing the president on immigration, endorsing his views on what group deserves the administration’s “most favored” label. She has assured Latin American countries that their citizens will not be abused while working in America, and promoted a Labor Department hotline illegal workers can call to turn in their employers (see: Labor Department Assures Migrant Workers of Rights).
Now that the $4.2 billion in Additional Child Tax Credits doled out to illegal immigrants is no longer a secret, why are we surprised, and why is the story even newsworthy? Is there anyone out there so naïve as to think that this is unusual, or that $4.2 billion is all we pay out in undeserved benefits to illegals?
