What greater act of compassion and humility is there besides offering amnesty? A grace of sorts of which one doesn't deserve, but it is granted out of compassion, empathy although with restriction besides the gift of amnesty, you must be working and contributing to society, paying taxes and/or going to school. Often you hear Republicans, specifically conservatives, talk about Jesus and guns, and the U.S. Constitution, however, the Jesus of the Bible would be unidentifiable to conservatives because many of them, at least openly, argue against anything that would help the poor mother or the down-and-out families. Conservatives argue against everything for the family, yet claim to be a family oriented party, presenting themselves as proud Nationalist Conservatives. Often conservatives don't put Christ first, no instead they project an un-Christ-like image, again promoting philosophy''s and doctrines of devils. What do I mean? Let's see, 'to each is own' who quoted this and why? Paul Ryan, the supposed Catholic, quoted Ayn Rand an atheist philosopher among other things. The reason he quotes Ayn Rand is to project a nonsensical-circular-logical argument from ignorance; you do for you and I'll do for me. It's a cold and callous approach to living a Christian life. That is if you're a Christian you must avoid using atheist philosophers as building blocks for morality. Or, you'll hear conservatives say, boot straps, pick yourselves of with boots straps. But what if you do not have bootstraps, are we supposed to believe this trickle down Reaganomics economic strategy works? For the past 30-years, trickle down economics failed us at every turn.
So, illegals have no bootstraps at least not legal ones. They aren't asking for the world; they just want a chance to make it in America. I think more tax paying citizens is a good thing. Because when immigrants live in the shadows of society, they make dirt-poor wages and do not contribute to society by paying taxes, which in turn hurts the economy. And that is something of which Republicans claim to be a priority. The truth is Republicans don't believe the things they tell their naive base. However, they do agree the border needs to be secured, they call that their immigration reform. Sealing off the border is Republican's strategy for entrance into America. We all accept the border ought to be secured, but there are common sense approaches making this idea a reality worth proposing. Conservatives believe thousands of National Guard soldier should guard the frontier to make sure illegals don't come in - and those that need to leave, to make sure they, in fact, leave. But the fundamental mistake of this logic is life doesn't work that way, because some things aren't black and white, and there are shades of gray. Meaning, we're all immigrant. And not matter how far back in our family tree, we've all came to America from a distant land. Hispanics travel just so happens to be a hop-skip-and a jump away from the Southern Border. Obviously, it's legal folks.
Surrounded by Constitutional lawyers who help him make these decisions and being a Constitutional attorney himself, Obama's not doing anything new... Every president has made executive decisions regarding immigration. But the Republicans hate Obama so much so they're not willing to compromise on ANYTHING, which isn't normal governance, so we cannot criticize him for performing his damn job.
Conservatives push for muscle and might along the border, a show of force against illegal aliens, a type of intimidation. Of course, the rest of us believe border patrol agents need adequate training, even a two-year degree, giving the agents education in various ethnicities and working relations classes. The next statement some will see as Liberal, but oh well. The Native American's technically own this land, we're essentially on stolen land, yet politicians have the nerve to call everyone else illegal law-breakers. However, you're the law-breaker; the Hispanics simply strive to find a better life. Again there should be certain restrictions on who can live in this country, I agree. However, we must always remember the status we as Americans hold which is we're not Native Americans. America, God willing, should be open to people wanting to come set up businesses or go to school.
"One of the big conservative fears is that Obama is going to do what Ronald Reagan did before him: issue amnesty to illegal immigrants to the country. Despite all the talk about the "Unconstitutional" nature of his impeding executive action and their wild claims that President Obama is orchestrating a power-grab, it should surprise nobody to learn that, like always, the GOP is wrong. A report from the American Immigration Council breaks down the history of the use of executive orders by presidents on both parties, and demolishes the GOP talking point with a single line: by orchestrating this executive order, President Obama would follow in "a long line of presidents who relied on their executive branch authority to address immigration challenges."red, they call that is their immigration reform. We all believe the border ought to be secured, but there are common sense approaches to making this idea a reality worth proposing. Conservatives believe thousands of National Guard soldier should guarding the border to make sure illegals don't come in - and those that need to leave, to make sure they actually leave. But the fundamental mistake of this logic is life doesn't work that way, because some things aren't black and white, and there are shades of grey. Meaning, we're all immigrant. And not matter how far back in our family tree, we've all came to America from a distant land. Hispanics travel just so happens to be a hop-skip-and a jump away from the Southern Border."(1).
