“Being an American is not a matter of blood or birth, it’s a matter of faith,” President Obama declared at a speech he gave on immigration. BHO speech, 07/01/10
Actually Mr. President, it IS a matter of birth. You are either a liar or just stupid. I am calling you out. You have to be one or the other to not be able, as a constitutional lawyer, to figure out the interpretation of the 14th Amendment, Section1.
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
My question to you, Mr. President is how you could miss two words? By birth. To be sure as a pro-choice candidate you have problems with that concept, but how could you miss the exact wording?
As for naturalization: it means acquiring citizenship by obtaining legal status as a full-time resident for a minimum period of time and that the applicant promise to obey and uphold that country’s laws, to which an oath or pledge of allegiance is sometimes added.
I am at a loss as to how you could make the statement above and not know that the Constitution allows (already) for a pathway to citizenship and by entering the country illegally the undocumented Democrats are breaking the law. They are not victims. They are law breakers. They disrespect our country, our laws, our way of life and our citizens.
During your speech you blamed resentment to new immigrants on poor economic conditions. Huh??
Just how stupid can one man be? We resent, I resent the heck out of lawbreakers given preferential status, victims rights, a portion of my pay to take care of their children, their school lunches, their AFDC claims, their Lone Star debit cards and their cars they drive with no license or insurance. I resent having to pay more for insurance and AVOIDING the emergency room at all cost because you can be sure that dying at the vet is better than waiting to die at PARKLAND. I resent having to pay double for documents in English and Spanish and I resent the heck out of you blaming it on racism.
Their economic conditions? How about your stealing from me to pay their ill-gotten way???
Further along you stated “Now, we can’t forget that this process of immigration and eventual inclusion has often been painful. Each new wave of immigrants has generated fear and resentment towards newcomers, particularly in times of economic upheaval.”
It is precisely because of the economic hard times we are having that it is INSANE for you to allow 20 million, not 11 million, lawbreaking and job taking people have their bad behavior rewarded with citizenship. It is ludicrous that you blame the job givers. You helped to create the situation by which they now HAVE to hire the lowest paid, lowest skilled workers who will accept a job with no insurance and no benefits just to have a job. YOU CREATED this environment and have the AUDACITY to call this a recovery summer?
Doesn’t intentionally wrecking the American economy qualify as treason? No body, no one qualified leader of the US could really be that stupid or that much of a liar without a hidden agenda and a reason to do so. So which are you: stupid, a liar, or a subversive? Two serve the one, and I firmly believe you should be brought up on charges of treason not only wrecking our economy, but allowing foreign leaders to defecate on our Constitution by coming here and telling us why we don’t need borders and how wrong we are to enforce the rule of law. Why would you allow that spit on us from Calderon unless it helps your agenda?
THAT is precisely my point.
