Barack Obama: ‘We are and always will be a nation of immigrants’: America has always been a nation of immirants, true enough. This fiat rule by an imperial president that answers neither to the people nor their democratically elected representatives in congress . . . that part is new.

Sure, but what does “immigrant” entail? Not all “immigrants” are the same. The word just means “moving from one country to another.”

It’s like the word “driver.” Some drivers are better at driving than others are. Some know where they are going and some are utterly lost. Some are driving well-maintained vehicles; some are driving dangerously broken-down heaps of garbage.

Europeans came here because they had built an awesome civilization and they wanted to take it on tour.

Mexicans come here because they trashed their country like a bunch of retarded children who had been left alone without adult supervision.

A continent belongs to whoever shows up.

Sometimes it’s people who have lived in animal skin tents for thousands of years being replaced by people who know how to build skyscrapers, railways and airplanes.

Sometimes it’s people who know how to build skyscrapers (etc.) being replaced by people who know… well, diddly squat.

Which way do we want it to go, folks?

We know which way Obama and his ilk want it to go.

What does he meanly “We” The United States is a nation of LEGAL immigrants, not self admitted criminals.

We have not been a nation of immigrants since the 1850’s. We are a nation of the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of immigrants.

I am first generation American and many many are (legally) and many immigrants (legal) are coming through each day so yes this is still a nation of immigrants the issue here is… do we want a nation that has open borders and gives preference to those that jump the fence? or do we want law and order and those people that truly want to make things right?

It sucks to pay thousands of dollars and spend a decade doing everything right to then see the fence jumper getting benefits that should have gone to someone that truly did things right.

You are correct as usual KQ. What this president has done it a slap in the face of people such as yourself, who have followed the laws of this nation done everything this nation has asked of them. It sickens me that these illegals get to play leapfrog. It isn’t right and it isn’t fair.

It is the height of cynical politics and anyone who supports the action is guilty of advocating for an end to the rule of law.

KimmyQueen November 23, 2014 at 9:49 pm

Truth… and liberals are supposed to be about fairness right? Not when it doesn’t suit them, because eventually considering how hard it is to enjoy and pursue one’s happiness, many legal immigrants tend to be more conservative with their actions and votes…

My wife is a first generation American as well (her parents legally immigrated here about 45 years ago).

Just like LBJ, Obutthead will say, I’ll have those illegals voting democrat for 100 years…..

Someone should tell Quagmire there’s a big difference between a legal immigrant who learned the language, and went through the process to become a citizen, versus the border jumpers who came here for the free welfare and started up a drug gang.

How many of those immigrants came here to escape the arbitrary exercise of government power by tyrants?

Until swimmer Kennedy bitched about all the illegals in the shadows, there was no attempts to have amnesty. If a person, family or families came to the USA, they went through the whole process. If they were sick they went into quarantine. They had to have a sponsor who ensured that they’d learn the language, get and hold a job and above all obey the laws. Now we’ve got freeloaders who expect you to kiss their asses and give them all kinds of free stuff. They demand that you speak their native tounge. I had an activist once ask me why I wouldn’t use the language of those that were arrested. I proceed to tell him I didn’t know Mayan. He shot back No damnit Spanish. At once point the trap was sprung. Oh you mean the language of a conqueror. He left talking to himself.

It made my day to put this PITA in his place in a polite manner.

emperor barry knows all there is to know on immigrant, the foreign exchange student and closet muslim, simply lives for the day the final nail is driven into the heart of democracy, in the meantime:

‘We are and always will be a nation of immigrants’…….

Yep, but those immigrants were legal and not felons that violated the laws of America.

Not so silent November 21, 2014 at 9:27 pm

And they were not all tatted up and members of a cartel….

hisham November 22, 2014 at 12:08 am

Yeah, that and the fact that the Immigrant-In-Chief isn’t all that different from the MS 13, undocumented Democrats…he doesn’t have any legal documentation either.
