According to documents obtained by Fox News, Obama will issue an executive order that will effectively give amnesty to the 4.5 million illegals who have children that were born in the United States.
As a result of this action, illegals will be given valid social security numbers and permanent residency green cards; thus bypassing all the normal procedures that most "legal" immigrants would have to go through to achieve a similar status.
At the same time, the issuance of green cards gives them the right to become a citizen after 5 years of residency; only 3 years if the spouse is already a citizen. That's the law, but Obama and the Democrats aren't going to tell us that. They're just hoping that those 4.5 million will ultimately become voting Democrats in just 5 years. Of course, there's a real question as to whether or not the President even has the right to override the existing laws by allowing permanent residency and the pathway to citizenship to those who have previously violated our immigration laws and who are fraudulently using fake Social Security cards and other I.D.'s. After all, the violation of our laws, criminal activity, and fraud are the primary reasons green cards can be revoked. Yet, in this case, Obama seems to think these are all reasons to issue them.
So, we're also supposed to believe that this Administration -- the one that took 3 years to build a website and enroll 8 million people in health insurance -- is even capable of accurately verifying and issuing green cards to 4.5 million people. My guess is that they won't even be verifying status under the executive action and, as such, the number of people legalized will be a lot higher; meaning that the 4.5 million may be just another lie. Why else would his Administration recently bid on a contract to supply 34 million new blank green cards in the next five years; with an initial order of 9 million next year. A surprising number when less than 400,000 are normally issued each year.
The other thing we won't be told about is that immigrants holding green cards become immediately eligible for public assistance benefits from the States and the Federal government. For sure, the issued Social Security cards will make them eligible for that benefit and, perhaps, Medicare also. Both which they may or may not have paid into while they held an illegal status. And, since many of those living here illegally are below the poverty level, expect taxpayer funded benefits to rise significantly. Of course this reality will also not be shared with us, and when asked about it, I suspect that Obama and Democrats will either skirt the issue or simply, once again, lie.
Much of what I've written above is the "why" Obama can't wait on immigration. He knows that, if he waits for the reform to come out of the new Republican Congress, there will be all kinds of restrictions and, more importantly, there won't be any 3-year or 5-year path to citizenship that his green card plot assures. As a result, Democrats won't be able to count on the millions of newly minted voters that they expect his order to create. Instead, the Republican Congress is expected to pass a bill that would require illegals to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of line for citizenship.
The pure fact that the President is rushing to act on this is a sure tip off that there's a lot he doesn't want us to know about it Similar to most of what he has already done in the past 6 years.
