Obama Shutting Immigration Law Enforcement Down?

Obama’s Top-Down Shutdown 

Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – Barack Obama has left the southern border wide open until the technology he favors catches up an estimated two years from now, and he has paralyzed the enforcement of federal immigration law at every level. Is mainstream media is too busy with the GOP primaries to address this undermining of immigration law sound-bite, leaving millions of Americans unaware and uninformed of exactly what Obama has in store for America: Amnesty?  

Recently we learned of the newest victim of Barack Hussein Obama’s attack on immigration law enforcement. Under his command, the Department of Homeland Security is starting to shut down a program that deputized local police officers around the country to act as immigration agents for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The program being targeted by the pro-amnesty administration is known as 287(g). Simply put, it allows officers to check the immigration status of suspects and place immigration holds on them in the absence of an established fingerprint record (or participation in the Secure Communities program). Agencies like the Colorado Department of Public Safety have used their 287(g) officers to crackdown on drug and human smuggling, gang activity and identity theft. But the program was too successful for Obama’s liking.

So, under the guise of making budget cuts and preventing “racial profiling,” Department of Homeland Security officials say they will not sign new contracts for the officers working in the field and will terminate the “least productive” of those agreements in order to save an estimated $17 million. Defenders of the program argue that once again the Obama administration is putting politics above public safety. According to Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, many sheriffs and police chiefs prefer the program to Secure Communities, likely because it does not require an established database to be effective.

If Obama has his way, all contracts between ICE and local police agencies could be terminated in November when the last contract for field officers expires. Of course, the demise of 287(g) has been underway for the past three years. The program reached its peak under George W. Bush, when 60 local agencies signed contracts with ICE, compared to only eight agencies signing up since Obama took office. The last agency to sign up did so in August 2010.

The Obama administration continuously touts the ‘official’ decline in the illegal immigration population as the product of Barack Obama’s doing, but they couldn’t be more mistaken. The decline in the illegal immigrant population stopped when Obama was inaugurated. From January 2007 to January 2009, the illegal immigration population is officially estimated to have dropped from 11.8 million down to 10.8 million.

In 2009 and 2010, there was no further decline.  As a matter of fact, the government estimate for January 2011 is expected to show an increase in the illegal immigrant population to 10.9 million. Despite the numbers, Obama refuses to recognize that stepped-up immigration enforcement at the end of the Bush administration and a weaker economy helped start the decline which has since been reversed by the current administration’s undermining of existing federal (and state-level) immigration laws.

Obama is using the media’s focus on the Republican primaries to shore up the Latino vote – and he’ll do anything to get it. After all, members of every other voting bloc previously held by Obama are jumping ship as they see where four more years of class warfare and socialist policies will take this country underwater in a hurry with no chance of rescue.

Between Obama’s failure to physically secure the U.S.-Mexico border (no fence, withdrawing National Guard troops), his failure to enforce federal immigration laws (300,000 deportations halted, backdoor amnesty for countless individuals that meet a criteria on Obama’s laundry list for non-deportation), and his administrations relentless legal attacks on state trying to uphold immigration law, our country does not stand a chance against illegal immigration.


  1. Our beautiful American land was settled by a group of illegal aliens criminals from the U.K. Our grandfathers fought very hard to make the USA a superpower. Deport all hard illegal aliens who are hard core criminals. Keep the good and hard working illegal alien who pays income taxes and contributes to society.

  2. I figure we can either disarm and unload the dope then turn the drug and human smugglers back, or we can bundle em up and dump em on the White House lawn.

  3. I recently purchased some property on the nation’s southern border in west Texas and will be breaking ground on F.O.B. (Forward Operating Base) HARMONY in memory of U.S. Border Patrol Agent and fellow U.S. Marine Brian Terry.

    To think of the possibility …that many of the 25 MILLION Veterans, many of which are my fellow Marines and all Veterans alike doing the very same thing… To the point where we will no longer have an illegal immigration problem in this country?

  4. Good post Radman! Some people cannot grasp the fact that American citizens are the owners of this country. It was their ancestors that founded it, built it and have defended it. It is the American citizen that still supports it. It is the whole of American society that should benefit from immigration. Immigration should not benefit only a few at the expense of the majority. It is the American citizen who should be able to decide who gets to benefit from the society that they and their forefathers created.

  5. “Far from it; we need engineers, scientists and highly skilled professional in computer technology”.

    Actually Dave we don’t need all that many educated legal immigrants either. Currently we have 1.8 million engineers that are either unemployed or working in non engineer fields. Whether it be out sourcing of jobs or the importation of legal/ illegal workers it is all birds of the same feather. Cheap labor is cheap labor and a surplus always drives wages down. It was interesting that a confidential memo by the government was recently discovered indicating that it would be beneficial for the government to increase immigration of higher educated people. The memo indicated that paying immigrants less would lower the cost of government research. Educated citizens have been replaced by legal immigrants for years by the private sector, now it appears government scientists will follow. Every month over 100,000 legal workers are allowed into this country.
    Until you have had your wages depressed or lost a job because of a legal or illegal immigrant, you will never understand the damage they do.

    All legal immigration needs to be reduced, all illegal immigration needs to be stopped. There should be no chain or family immigration. There should be no favored status or immigration lottery. Legal immigration should be capped at no more then 330,000 a year.

  6. the article fails to mention secure communities and the fact that since chicago has been so bad
    they intend to speed up the establishment of secure communites in chicago
    hopefully its wil be as good as 287 g
    things are so bad where i live i have to take a gun with me when i walk and am also buying a cell phone also

  7. Delaware Bob: Thank you for beginning to realize the very negative overall impact of ILLEGAL immigration on this nation…and also the extremely negative impact that President Obama and his sycophant leftist czars and politicians have had on our Republic in the last 3 years.

    The Lord helps those who help themselves, Bob; so please, please get out there and spread the word! THIS time and THIS election really ARE the most important in history, as WHO we elect next November will determine whether or not the American voters want to continue along Obama’s path of “fundamental transformation” wherein “We the People” are little more than indentured servants to the “almighty,” “all-knowing,” collectivist, “all-providing” nanny state that will ultimately deteriorate into anarchy. (See Greece)

    “Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.” — Thomas Sowell

  8. Illegal aliens, most of which pay zero in net taxes, enjoyed $4.2 billion from the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) last year. That’s more than the annual revenue from the selected oil tax deductions and corporate jet deductions combined. Yesterday (9/1/11), the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Collection released a shocking report detailing how illegal aliens are able to utilize a filing loophole to obtain billions in ACTC funds. The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and ACTC (unlike the base child tax credit) are totally refundable and can award the recipient with a negative tax balance. Appropriations for the EITC in FY 2010 were $54.7 billion and $28.3 billion for the ACTC. While EITC appropriations are protected from illegals (those who don’t engage in identity theft) because they are only awarded to those who provide a valid Social Security number, the same cannot be said for the ACTC.

    Bottom line here: “Every sovereign nation has the authority to determine who can be a citizen and who can be present within its borders. As the nation’s former chief law enforcement officer, and a citizen who believes in the rule of law, I cannot condone anyone coming into this country illegally. We are a nation of laws. When people fail to follow the law with impunity, it encourages further disobedience and breeds disrespect for the rule of law; and that is not America.” — Alberto Gonzales, the nation’s 80th Attorney General, speech to the Austin Economics Club

  9. “Of all the arguments for giving amnesty to illegal immigrants, the most foolish is the argument that we can’t find and expel all of them. There is not a law on the books that someone has not violated, including laws against murder, and we certainly have not found and prosecuted all the violators — whether murderers or traffic law violators. But do we then legalize all the illegalities we haven’t been able to detect and prosecute?” – Thomas Sowell, Random Thoughts, article in Townhall.com, 12/27/11.

    “The purpose of American immigration laws and policies is not to be either humane or inhumane to illegal immigrants. The purpose of immigration laws and policies is to serve the national interest of this country. There is no inherent right to come live in the United States, in disregard of whether the American people want you here. Nor does the passage of time confer any such right retroactively.” … “When you import people, you import cultures, including cultures that have been far less successful in providing decent lives and decent livelihoods. The American people have a right to decide for themselves whether they want unlimited imports of cultures from other countries.” … “At one time, immigrants came to America to become Americans. Today, the apostles of multiculturalism and grievance-mongering have done their best to keep foreigners foreign and, if possible, feeling aggrieved. These days, “our own schools and colleges (actually) TEACH grievances.” (emphasis added) – Thomas Sowell, Texas Insider “Opinion” post, 11/29/11

    The following is another piece of strong evidence that Obama is utilizing selective enforcement to implement “back-door” amnesty for political purposes: Only 44% of the Southwest border is under the “operational control” of the Border Patrol. – GAO Report. “In 2011, only 45% of illegal immigrants were deported for immigration violations, compared with 65% in 2009.” “The downward trend represents a new hands-off policy for most illegal aliens living in the U.S. and is a core component of this administration’s affirmative dismantling of most interior immigration enforcement” “The President should not be expecting a gold star for deporting criminal illegal aliens while giving those who are merely illegal aliens a free pass.” — FAIR (Federation of American Immigration Reform ) “The Obama administration is cooking the books to make it look like they are enforcing immigration laws, when in reality they are enacting amnesty through inaction.” – Congressman Lamar Smith. (All from an article in Texas Insider, 10/27/11)

    So this post regarding Obama’s refusal to enforce existing laws on LLEGAL immigration does not get too long, I’ll continue it in a supplimental submission.

  10. I don’t want to be paying 5.00 for an apple just because of some two bit hillbilly state law. Thank God for our constitution, thank God for checks and balances.

  11. I’m not a republican, but I will be voting for one this election, and pray to God he will get our immigration laws enforced. I’m sick of obama pandering to these people who have NO RIGHT to be in this country. The illegal aliens who don’t have our jobs, are using this country as a welfare country with their anchor babies, (illegal alien children). Why should illegal aliens be entitled to a DREAM Act? They are in this country ILLEGALLY no matter how they got here. It’s time to get these illegal aliens back to their own country where they belong. They DO NOT belong here! Then we have obama’s aunt and uncle, who just snubbed their nose at our laws. What are they doing here? Tell me. What are they doing here?

    I’n surprised that Texas don’t have a state law.

  12. LOST if you had ANY documentation of fraud you would post it.
    Obviously you do not.
    Go back where you came from a do it the LEGAL way.
    “immigrants cannot complain to anyone they cannot even go to the police and file fraud charges.”
    I notice you omitted the word LEGAL.

  13. The immigration system works just fine; immigration takes in applications accompanied with a nice fat fee and then throws the application into a bottomless pit where it stays for ever unprocessed.

    The great thing is immigration gets to keep the fees and not only give nothing in return other than a just wait response but the beauty of this racket is that immigrants cannot complain to anyone they cannot even go to the police and file fraud charges.

    The bonus part of this scheme is every few years the immigration system can demand more fees or else they will delete your application, you know the one that will never get processed in the applicants lifetime.

  14. Man, this guy is real trouble for this nation. If we don’t vote him out, we are going to be calling each other commrtade. NOBAMA is 2012 and all of his Dem’s cohorts!!!

    The American people have never censured the majority of LEGAL IMMIGRANTS? The People are not discriminating against any race, creed, color or nationality; they are in opposition to unlawful foreign nationals. The Liberal Vendetta has surpassed the rationality of blaming the Constitutionalists. Far from it; we need engineers, scientists and highly skilled professional in computer technology. What is not wanted is unfettered poverty that seems we are getting more of every day? The top classes of potential immigrants already have been sponsored by companies waiting for them, and its ascertained they are unlikely to be paying a visit to the welfare offices? Guest Workers for the farming industry should be well regulated and only on a temporary basis, with no path to citizenship. Anybody caught illegally in this nation, must face a felony charge. Annually the cost for this paramount immigration issue has climbed to a hundred billion and still rising.

    The United States is at odds over illegal immigration. On the right side crave that tens of millions should be deported yesterday, as they have driven down wages and consume federal and state assistance services, while the majority evade taxes and at the same time wiring some $46 billion to support families in other countries. On the opposite side of the coin, as with the Liberals and Democrats who identify illegal aliens as future voters and model themselves as open border zealots that want no immigration enforcement whatsoever The Liberal Progressives want this country to forfeit its right, to define itself as a nation of laws and thus would commit financial suicide. The left does not care that the 20 to 30 million illegal immigrants and migrants do not pay enough taxes, to cover the overload of welfare and public services that they use.

    It’s not adequate to say they pay gas, food, household goods and other sales tax. Because it no way covers the Heritage Foundation and American Federation Immigration reform report of $113 Billion dollars a year, going in free health, schooling for children and welfare and subsidiary cash payments, that are absorbed every year. A further estimate is that over 500.000 and use some means to illegally enter America, either by foreign flights or slipping past the undermanned border agents. Not all Presidential candidates have committed to building the real double parallel fences at the Southwest border. A promise of enforcing the fence has only come from the mouths of Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Ron Paul has remained mainly negative on the subject of border control.

    President Obama has expressed to the Democratic majority, that in the next five years following his inauguration, that he will pass a nation comprehensive immigration reform, containing a Dream Act legislation, unfettered chain migration for immediate family members and millions of agricultural jobs, that taxpayers will be forced to pay. Robert Rectors analysts at the Heritage Foundation have spoken in another report, that to complete this tyranny of action cost to taxpayers of $2.4 Trillion dollars to complete, adding even incendiary spending of Congress. Our only hope of getting out of this mess should be to unseat all pro-illegal immigrant incumbents, at all levels of government. Any elected official who says illegal aliens should have drivers licenses (Police chief Beck in California.) The Mayor of New Haven DeStefano, who issued Identity cards to foreigners, Governor Jerry Brown of California insisting there should be a path to citizenship, while dollars are rolled out for the millions of nationals their and citizens are forgotten and the hundreds of Governors, Mayors, Judges, Police and public officials in councils who run cities and towns have to be elected out of office. Strong mind Governors as Arizona’s Governors Jan Brewer, and other who are on the right side of the fence, should be reelected and moderate Democrats, should also join this financial battle.

    The cost for assimilating illegal aliens on top of the flood of legal immigrants is unprecedented. These are further expenses we don’t need on the rising federal deficit in paying for two wars and Obama’s cronyism. The man has already bypassed the requirements of the 1986 Simpson/Mazzoli Immigration Act, and through presidential orders allowed backdoor amnesties for unlawful people. Many are now walking on our streets, thinking that after the 2012 election they will be granted a path to citizenship. You have already the years of abuse of criminals advancing there heinous occupations, leaving innocent victims blood in home invasion robberies, the murders and in the endless spotlight the drunken driving madness. Ice has been intimidated by radical organizations, who belief illegal aliens should have the same rights as citizens. Their determination to overturn the “Rule of Law” that has governed us, since the founding fathers first penned their signature on the U.S. Constitution. Both political parties are guilty of eroding this precious document. All are guilty of giving lip service to the oath of allegiance and abusing their positions.

    Those of us that see this unapologetic corrosion in Washington can either turn a blind eye or find a place for themselves in the rising membership of the TEA PARTY. These tens of millions of ordinary folk spread out in thousands of chapters throughout America have realized that under the roots of either Democrats, Liberals or Republicans the Congress will follow the same old route as before. They will keep on printing money and the spending will continue. By overhauling the Senate and more of the House of Representative seats with Tea Party leadership, the same old favoritism will end. There will be a revolution in the Congress, as never seen before. Laws on Immigration will be enforced. Until green Power is further advanced, we will drill for oil, of which we have an ample supply to last a hundred years. Lou Dobbs tonight had a very excellent idea that all supplies of oil found on federal land, placing the funds appropriated by the government to end up who knows where, and placed in the people’s bank; fossil fuels should not be sold to foreign countries, when it belongs to all Americans.

    The tea Party will approve our pipeline from Canada, to reduce the need for foreign supplies. Federal election regulations will be amended, so prove of who you really are by possessing a voter ID. This will disrupt non citizens from voting in future election cycles, that Democrats have specifically overlooked. This Tuesday Arizona will be put to the test with an election, thus millions of illegal aliens settled there are likely to scorn the law, if official picture ID is not evident for voting. Our freedoms have been jeopardized, unless we have a political party we can depend on, as our country is straining towards the wrong direction in our future. We have seen this with the harassment of Border States of Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, Utah, Indiana, South Carolina and newly joined state of Mississippi under considerable pressure from unfunded mandates from Washington.

    All 50 States have been trying desperately to save their legal population into paying for illegal aliens, but have been intense bombardment for decades and initiated by religion, unions and radical minority groups. This will not happen under TEA PARTY legislation and in fact they will pass bills, as the mandatory E-Verify “THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT” (H.R.2885) Placing federal enforcement obstacles to halt illegal workers being hired, the “BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP ACT” (H.R.140) to right a wrong by amendment to a law that says no child gains instant citizenship if both parent owes allegiance to a foreign country. Soon as (H.R.2885) is enacted self-deportation or ATTRITION THROUGH ENFORCEMENT will commence as with jobs unavailable, they will leave. This has been a huge mockery of our laws, as 300 thousand females annually will intentionally cross our border or enters as a tourist from another country, to have her baby here free of charge and then apply for a green card. If you are not aware of “The Legal Workforce Act” that directly affects millions of citizens-residents jobs or the “Birthright Citizenship Act” that will contain billions of dollars in your revenue, then Google NUMBERSUSA for much in depth description and then report this fiasco to your prominent federal or state politician and demand they pass these laws. GET RID OF ALL THESE POLITICAL IDIOTS BEFORE THEY GIVE YOUR COUNTRY AWAY.
