What President Obama Really Thinks of Hispanics
1000 delegates at the National Association of Latino Elected and
Appointed Officials were having lunch when they heard a very odd
request. “It’s very important that you use your utensils as soon as
possible,” board member Raquel Regalado told the delegates at the
group’s annual conference. It seems their utensils were a security
threat to the President who was speaking at the event.
“The Secret Service coordinates this
process with staff and host committee to ensure tables are cleared of
material that may be deemed hazardous prior to the arrival of the
president,” Special Agent Max Milien told POLITICO. “Any implication that this was unique for this event is completely inaccurate.”
We’re told that this is a typical security measure at large events. But POLITICO noted:
“Still, there are a wide variety of
breakfasts, lunches and dinners the president attends where diners still
have the full complement of silverware as Obama speaks.
“Milien declined to comment on the
discrepancy. However, it’s known that the Secret Service adjusts
security depending on the size of the crowd and how much officials know
about who’s in attendance. At some events, guests must pass through
magnetometers. At others, they don’t.”
Why was an Hispanic crowd deemed a security risk? Just wondering
The latest immigration ploy of Barack Obama has a poison pill
attached. How does a young person prove that he or she was brought to
the United States by parents who are — according to our laws — “illegal
If the parents are in the United States illegally, then to prove that
their children were brought here through no fault of their own, the
parents would be setting themselves up for deportation. It’s a classic
Catch-22 dilemma. To prove one point for a positive outcome proves
another point with a negative outcome. No one wins.
Everybody knows that what President Obama did to subvert standing law
was done to secure the Hispanic vote for the November 2012 election.
But it will solve nothing.
Republicans need to be careful on the immigration issue so they don’t
come across as anti-immigrant. Many Hispanics I’ve met share
conservative values. I’m not saying that all do, but I bet it’s a
majority. It’s the welfare state and government education (which is
welfare) that often corrupts the next generation.
I’m not for amnesty, but I am for some way to help people who came
here illegally to find a lawful path to citizenship. There is no
possible way that we’re going to ship millions of people back across the
One of the first things we should do is shut down the welfare state
for everybody, but most especially for legals and illegals. It would
take time, but it removes the incentive for some people to cross the
Those pursuing a path to citizenship that came illegally could not
vote for two four-year election cycles from the time they earn their
legal status. This takes most of the politics out of the immigration
As much as we might understand the plight of people who want to come
to America, we don’t like being taken advantage of. Our government does
enough of that already.
