MY Position Has Always Been….
I’ve “forever” thought that ‘fence-jumpers, river-swimmers’ are doomed right from the start! The first thing they’ve done as RESIDENTS of the United States was ILLEGAL, in that they’ve crossed one of America’s borders “without an invitation.” The country’s leadership went wrong the instant the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo  became official: They failed to start the fencing along the new southern border! So…. that’s where I stand.
Practically since then~1848~the fore-runners of the obamacRATics~the democRATics~have been promoting illegal immigrants to INVADE the United States! To that end, they eventually found someone they chose to snooker…~my presidential fave~”Ronaldus-Magnus…” President Ronald Reagan. In 1986, Mr Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act into law. As they were to do later with the budget, the democRATics failed to ‘hold up their end’ in that they REFUSED to enforce the immigration laws contained therein. The obamacRATics continued this policy with the ‘current-and-ongoing’ obama refusals.
Currently, we have some declared~and likely~republicRATic contenders for the position of “Back-up” to Benjamin Netanyahu as ‘the preeminent world leader.’ In some cases, their immigration/amnesty positions are troubling to me and should be to conservatives:
- Jeb Bush: “…said he would be open to allowing illegal immigrants a path to citizenship and said his position on immigration is “the grown-up plan.””
- Ted Cruz: “What has not been as evident is what he supports: legal status for millions of people here already, while making it easier for immigrants to come here through the front door.”
- Rand Paul: “…Paul has spent considerable time trying to block or undo immigration proposals offered by others. …also introduced legislation that sought to undo […] obama’s executive orders to delay deportation of some immigrants in the country illegally.”
- Marco Rubio: “…ICE’s additional concern is that the amnesty bill [which Rubio supports; which is kinda OLD, but still noteworthy] would make permanent their inability to enforce the law by giving DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano “virtually unlimited discretion” to waive all enforcement of immigration law.”
There you have it… while I do support some candidates’ positions, so far, I don’t see anyone I can support on the ‘immigration/amnesty’ issue. You should now be as concerned as I am with respect to “the best man/woman for the job as “Bibi‘s backup!” Our saving grace would be that we’ve not seen the entire field of candidates yet; that there’s someone in the wings that would be the ‘polar-opposite’ of “Clown Prince” obama!!
That’s all I got.
