Ronald Regan said in his memoir “that granting Amnesty( 1986) was his biggest regret” He may have felt that way personally but he ended up doing what the Globalist insiders wanted him to do. It was supposed to be a “one time ” event with assurances for tough border security which as we know today were never implemented.
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, signed into law by Reagan on Nov. 6 of that year, provided amnesty to nearly 3 million undocumented (illegal ) immigrants who proved that they had been in the United States prior to Jan. 1, 1982. ( If they are undocumented how can the prove the date they arrived ?) The law’s sanctions against employers who hired undocumented immigrants were never vigorously enforced and, when they were, received a strong backlash from business interests such as the Chamber of Commerce.
We had a glimmer of real reform with the 2005 HR4437 (109 Congress) know as the Border Protection, AntiTerrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005 but it was thwarted by a well organized coalition of illegal aliens marching on Washington D.C. in conjunction with the usual suspects of pro amnesty groups such as La Raza ( now know as UnidosUS ) pressuring lawmakers in a classic execution of the communist pincer attack . If anyone in Congress now had any balls they would resurrect this bill in its entirety and pass it. It is the model of reform that would have real teeth to address the illegal immigration problem that has swelled to 10x times the 1986 numbers. That is not even counting the spiraling alphabet soup of visas and the abuse of refugee program that the United Nations inflicts on our 50 states.
Unfortunately we will not learn from out past mistakes because the results we wanted when we elected President Trump are going to lost because we sent him in unarmed with no Constitutionalist Congressman to help him. We had all three branches of government for 2 years and no one helped him implement our mandate of stopping illegal immigration.Even worse we saw three key people on true immigration reform recently get cast out- Jeff Sessions R-TN, Louie Gohmort R-TX and Steven King R-IA are all gone. President Trump has now taken up the Go along to get along approach on a troubling program know as DACA. AS of Friday 7/10/2020 Headline: President Trump Says Upcoming Immigration Measure Will Include DACA.
The DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival ) program created in 2012 by then-President Barack Obama to protect from deportation undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children expired March 5, 2018. (From the U.S.Immigration and Citizenship Services website)
USCIS is not accepting requests from individuals who have never before been granted deferred action under DACA. Due to federal court orders on Jan. 9, 2018 and Feb. 13, 2018, USCIS has resumed accepting requests to renew a grant of deferred action under DACA.
President Trump is the first to try to challenge in things in court but these attempts have been snookered by pre-calculated road blocks put in his way. The lawsuit to cancel the Obama-era program was decided by the Supreme Court last month which said it could stay in place.
This in its self is an odd conclusion since the program was only formally initiated by a policy memorandum sent from Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano to the heads of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). You would think that an executive order to end the program would be automatically higher on the ranking than a mere memorandum. Also the real root of the constitutionally was never addressed in the decision from the Supreme Court.
One would like to see someone in Congress seek impeachment of Chief Justice Roberts since in Article 3 section 1 it states “The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour “.
It does not say they are appointed for life and clearly Justice Roberts decision is another example of his bad behaviuor of reasoning in his adjudications.
So rather than try again to challenge the decision, which would be the correct course of action to get this program to end, the presidential puppeteers step in allowing about 700,000 young immigrants( and many not so young ) known by their created warm and fuzzy name of Dreamers to be free from deportation forever.
To be sure no one would hear about this intervention an interview was done with Noticias Telemundo on Spanish TV. President Trump said he plans to unveil sometime in the next month an immigration measure that he said would include some protections for DACA – that provides for work permits and other protections for people brought to the U.S. as children by undocumented parents.
In his usual marbles in the mouth statements, President Trump made a series of seemingly conflicting comments about his next steps. He said he would be “taking care” of DACA and said the program would be “just fine.” He said he would be signing a “big immigration bill,” which he also called a “big executive order,” and said, “I’m going to make DACA a part of it.” “We’re working out the legal complexities right now, but I’m going to be signing a very major immigration bill as an executive order, which the Supreme Court now, because of the DACA decision, has given me the power to do that,” Trump said.Adding to the confusion, Trump said about DACA: “We put it in, and we’ll probably going to then be taking it out” This phrase he repeated twice in the interview.
This is the typical theater to show that the directed predetermined outcome of FULL AMNESTY given to him to accept is not really predetermined. However he tipped his hand when pressed on whether the provision would give DREAMers protected by the program legal status in the United States.
President Trump said: “They’re going to be part of a much bigger bill on immigration. It’s going to be a very big bill, a very good bill, and merit-based bill and it will include DACA, and I think people are going to be very happy.” He also said that it would “give them a road to citizenship.” <<<<<read as Amnesty.
Then later more double speak from White House spokesman Judd Deere.
He provided the following statement: “As the president announced today, he is working on an executive order to establish a merit-based immigration system to further protect U.S. workers. Furthermore, the president has long said he is willing to work with Congress on a negotiated legislative solution to DACA, one that could include citizenship, along with strong border security and permanent merit-based reforms. This does not include amnesty.”
You can not have it both ways- granting citizenship to someone that does not have it due to their illegal alien status is amnesty so it will be only one way.
President Trump, like Ronald Regan, is counting on his popularity to be forgiven for furthering the demise of our sovereignty to control our borders and not following the Constitution.
As Bircher’s we can’t and you shouldn’t either.
