Fact Check: SEARCH FOR TRUTH: OBAMA’S CLAIMS ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

FACT CHECK: OBAMA’S CLAIMS ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

by Alicia A. Caldwell and Erica Werner at Yahoo News:

President Barack Obama made some notable omissions Thursday night in his remarks about the unilateral actions he’s taking on immigration.

A look at his statements and how they compare with the facts:

OBAMA: “It does not grant citizenship, or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive – only Congress can do that. All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.”

THE FACTS: He’s saying, and doing, more than that. The changes also will make those covered eligible for work permits, allowing them to be employed in the country legally and compete with citizens and legal residents for better-paying jobs.

___

OBAMA: “Although this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border, the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years.”

THE FACTS: The numbers certainly surged this year, but it was more than a “brief spike.” The number of unaccompanied children apprehended at the border has been on the rise since the 2011 budget year. That year about 16,000 children were found crossing the border alone. In 2012, the Border Patrol reported more than 24,000 children, followed by more than 38,800 in 2013. In the last budget year, more than 68,361 children were apprehended.

___

OBAMA: “Overall, the number of people trying to cross our border illegally is at its lowest level since the 1970s. Those are the facts.”

THE FACTS: Indeed, in the 2014 budget year the Border Patrol made 486,651 arrests of border crossers, among the fewest since the early 1970s. But border arrests have been on the rise since 2011.

The decline in crossings is not purely, or perhaps even primarily, due to the Obama administration. The deep economic recession early in his presidency and the shaky aftermath made the U.S. a less attractive place to come for work. The increase in arrests since 2011 also can be traced in part to the economy — as the recovery improved, more people came in search of opportunity.

Obama’s Feminized Ditzies Everywhere MUST BE CHALLENGED! Resurrect Honesty in America!

Today’s Democrat Party is dictated, supported, and educated by FEMINIST DITZIES OF ALL SEXES! They preach feminization from the goddess of FEELINGS, the Holy Spirit of today’s Marxist atheism of Equality.

There is, indeed, a war in America today…..Primarily a Civil War, a Revolution of Feminized Feelings to Purge Knowledge of Our Human Past and Put and End to Thinking.

“Who needs to learn thinking when one can act by feelings alone?” the feminized ask.

Thinking is so yesterday, so male, too unfair to the unfair, too protecting to the unprotecting, too strong to the weak, too inventive to the uninventive, too creative to the uncreative, too curious for the incurious, too unpeaceful to the peaceful, and too imaginative to the unimagining.

Live and deal by Feelings, not thought, the Change the feminized promised; the Change they dictated we were waiting for. THE FEMINIZED REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN: HAVE YOU FELT IT?

HAVE YOU BOTHERED TO THINK ABOUT IT?

CNN ‘s Language of the Feminist Left……Words are What You Feel Them to Be, Not What They Mean

CNN: If you oppose Obama on immigration, you’re probably old and a little racist
POSTED AT 3:21 PM ON NOVEMBER 21, 2014 BY NOAH ROTHMAN

If you happened to be watching CNN in the 9 a.m. ET hour on Friday, you learned that President Barack Obama’s executive order extending legal status to millions of illegal immigrants is wildly popular with almost everyone save those who believe it did not go far enough.

The majority of the hour, anchored by Carol Costello, was peppered with probing questions insightful observations about the new status quo ushered in by the president on Thursday night.

“Because it’s not really amnesty, because the president — it’s only three years, right, that’s what the president laid out — and after the three years are up, who knows what could happen?” Costello asked a guest billed as a DREAMer who will continue to enjoy the protections provided by the White House’s DACA directive, which has been in place since 2012.

That’s a brand new definition for the word “amnesty.” It certainly runs counter to The Hill columnist A.B. Stoddard who appealed to the dictionary when seeking to define the term. “It is amnesty,” she told the panelists on Fox News Channel’s Special Report on Thursday, “because it is forgiveness — it is technically forgiveness of lawbreaking.”

The War on Poverty Has Waged a War on Marriage

The War on Poverty Has Waged a War on Marriage

November 20, 2014…..from the National Center for Policy Analysis:

When did marriage in America begin to decline? According to Senior Research Fellow Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation, marriage rates began to fall as welfare programs grew in number and scope — a result that he calls “no accident.”

At the outset of the war on poverty in 1964, there was one program — Aid to Families with Dependent Children — that provided aid to single parents. At that point, out of wedlock birth rates were less than 10 percent.

But today, there are more than 80 means-tested welfare programs that allow single parents to access government aid, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, the Women, Infants and Children food program, public housing and Medicaid. While both married and single-parent families qualify for these programs, Rector writes that most assistance goes to single-parent families.

What’s the connection between these programs and single parenthood? According to Rector, by providing aid to single-parent families, these programs enable a single parent to more easily raise children without another parent in the home providing support. Moreover, the programs effectively hurt the parents who do choose to marry, because benefits are reduced — and cut off — when household earnings increase. A single mother who chooses to marry the father of her child may lose a significant amount of welfare benefits, but, by remaining single, she can retain those benefits. He offers the example of a single mother earning $20,000 annually — if she marries a man with the same level of earnings, they will lose $12,000 per year in welfare benefits.

Obama’s Amnesty and the Impact on Jobs

Obama’s Amnesty and the Impact on Jobs

November 21, 2014 from the National Center for Policy Analysis:

The Obama administration’s amnesty plan will give 5 million illegal immigrants work permits. According to Neil Munro at the Daily Caller, 4 million illegals who have been in the country for five years are eligible to apply for the permits, and another 1 million will be exempted from deportation in other ways.

If one adds those permits, reports Munro, to the other 1 million permits that the administration has previously given out, it will equal 6 million — the same number as the number of jobs that the economy has added since the president took office in 2009.

What does this mean for jobs and the economy? Munro notes that American wages have stagnated since 2000 due to a surplus of people seeking jobs. How many people are entering the job market every year?

The United States accepts 1 million new, legal immigrants every year. Over the last 5 years, 3.5 million have been of working-age.
Companies tend to hire 450,000 blue-collar guest workers and 200,000 white-collar guest workers each year.
4.3 million Americans enter the workforce every year.
Currently, 9 million Americans are unemployed, while 7 million have given up looking for employment.
The number of native-born Americans with jobs has flat-lined since 2000.
According to Munro, some of the 5 million who will receive work permits are already working cash jobs or under false identities, but he says the newly permitted will compete with blue-collar workers and job seekers who were legally in the job market.

The Heritage Foundation recently released a report outlining steps to revive the American immigration system. The report, by Research Associate David Inserra, outlined many of the financial costs of illegal immigration, noting that illegal immigrants who are granted amnesty will tend to be tax consumers, not contributors. Inserra noted that were the United States to grant amnesty to 11.5 million illegals, they would pay just $3.1 trillion over the course of a lifetime in taxes while receiving $9.4 trillion in government benefits.

Shelby Steele’s Masterpiece Marrying Beauty of Language with Beauty of Thought defining the Ideals of conservatism

SHELBY STEELE’s Masterpiece: “What drew me to conservatism.”

“ What drew me to conservatism years ago was the fact that it gave discipline a slightly higher status than virtue. This meant it could not be subverted by passing notions of the good. It could be above moral vanity. And so it made no special promises to me as a minority. It neglected me in every way except as a human being who wanted freedom.

Until my encounter with conservatism, I had only known the racial determinism of segregation on the one hand and of white liberalism on the other; two varieties of white supremacy in which I could only be dependent and inferior.

The appeal of conservatism is the mutuality it asserts between individual and political freedom, its beautiful idea of a free man in a free society. And it offers minorities the one thing they can never get from liberalism; human rather than racial dignity.

“Conservatism “seeks the discipline of ordinary people rather than the virtuousness of extraordinary people. The challenge for conservatives today is simply self-acceptance, and even a little pride in the way we flail away at problems with an invisible hand.”
