Obama and Immigration

Posted: 25th April 2010 by Scott @ The Right of a Nation in General Politics

According to Bloomberg, Obama wants Washington to create some sort of immigration reform, and he really dislikes Arizona’s recent efforts (big surprise).

In fact, it’s really more of the “only I (and Washington D.C.) can do anything right, you people and your states don’t have the right to decide what you want for yourself” that was exhibited by Obama in the Obamacare deal.

“Our failure to act responsibly at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others,” Obama said at a Rose Garden naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the U.S. military. “That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona.”

So if there isn’t a law or bill or some sort of control on every subject at the federal level, and the states or the people (or anything at a “weaker level”) get a hold of it, he believes they will just screw it up.

Obama disagrees with Arizona’s new law that makes it illegal for someone to be living in their state who is in the U.S. illegally, as redundant as that sounds.  He says that it is not “fair.”  He does say, however,

“Surely we can all agree that when 11 million people in our country are living here illegally, outside the system, that’s unacceptable,” Obama said. “The American people demand and deserve a solution.”

The only problem is that I’m not sure the American people are going to be very supportive of his plan, which is sure to be “make all 11 million illegals automatically legal, and then we no longer have an illegal immigration problem.”

  1. Charles says:

    One of (many) the biggest problems this country has is for far to long we have depended on Washington, D.C. to fix all our problems. Apparently no one pays attention in school and so does not know the difference between a Federal Republic and a Unitary Republic.

    Arizona has the right idea. It is the DUTY and RIGHT of the States to step in and handle problems the Federal government either can’t, won’t, or shouldn’t.

  2. It’s hard to add anything to that because you’re exactly right on every point.

    Arizona has a problem that is unique to them (and a few other border states), so they are making an attempt to take care of it. Like I said above, it seems that nothing makes Obama more angry than states or people taking care of something themselves.

    If he and his big government is left out of the government then he throws a fit, like he is doing right now.
