Thursday, September 5, Politico’s ‘Playbook,’ morning email author Mark Allen, in tandem with his executive editor Jim Vandehei, proclaimed that amnesty for illegal aliens would likely get pushed back to 2017 as an official government issue. Previously, the Democratic Senate proclaimed that comprehensive illegal immigration reform would be coming out of the House as early as the end of summer 2013.
Congress is set to reassume duties Monday the 9th of September.
On Thursday, Allen and Vandehei detailed how the President’s push to engage Syria to end a bloody civil war gave Congress the excuse it needed to table a reform to illegal immigration: ‘Republicans and Democrats alike feel the Syria resolution would not pass today, even after party leaders endorsed it. Immigration reform looks dead for this year and probably next.’
They went on to detail: ‘Until a few weeks ago, Hill stragtegists in both parties had said they thought immigration had a chance in 2015. Now, the smart money is on 2017.’
The Democratic machine’s one-two punch of Illegal Immigration reform and Homosexual Marriage had hit a wall of late as Democratic Party leadership began to show cognitive dissonance by calling Illegal Immigration a Civil Right. A backlash from Africa-American community leaders has been stark leading up to and following the 50th anniversary of Doctor Martin Luther King’s march on Washington DC. Senator Charles Schumer and other Senatorial members supporting the Illegal Immigration Reforms, believed that support for amnesty would snow ball. Instead, the best-selling author and eminent professor Doctor Cornel West called the poster-boy of black community outrage Al Sharpton President Barack Obama’s, ‘House Negro,’ for parroting politics rather than commemorating and celebrating the truth of civil rights.
Raynard Jackson, of Black Press USA, went so far as to laud the GOP (the Republican Party) for hosting an apolitical luncheon surrounding the major historic social event. While boasting of the racial panoply comprising the luncheon organized by Reince Priebus, Mr. Jackson made sure to remind the reader that at least 40% of the membership was Democratic.
On CNN, November 11th 2012, David Gergen reminded the viewership that out of the 105 rounds of golf the Commander-in-Chief played since his inauguration, only one was with a Republican.
Gergen, who served at least four times in the White House under different administrations, characterized the Obama Presidency as aloof.
Former UN ambassador John Bolton who serves as FOX pundit just called Obama the weakest President since the Civil War for mishandling the Middle East, to say nothing of losing Executive Privilege mishandling the Drone War.
One gets the sense that the President is one speech away from being called wordy since Black Leaders began abandoning the Democratic Party for mixing metaphors of Civil Rights with Illegal Immigration and Homosexual Marriage.
Since the Supreme Court struck down salient parts of the Voting Rights Act insuring against racial discrimination, while defending the individual right to marriage between homosexuals, the Democratic Party has been more vulnerable than ever.
Its peace and love populisms seem more and more like short-lived disingenuous lying.
People that voted for a tough and idealistic Federalist to push through the Green Revolution must by now certainly agree with Travis Smilely and Cornell West who call out the social naïveté of a pollster President who would rather support the idealism of Homosexual Marriage over other more realistic issues.
Perhaps that’s why Dr. West has said that Obama has turned his back on black folks. Rather than concentrate on achievable goals like raising the minimum wage, the Administration skips from Civil Rights tirade to tirade, losing no sleep as its landmark Healthcare Legislation gets bruised and battered by Washington.
Perhaps that’s why the New Jersey Black Ministers’ Council Director endorsed the Republican Chris Christie shortly after racial discrimination got the back seat the Supreme Court’s defense of another minority: homosexuals.
In early July, Bishop Reginald Jackson designated quality education a civil right worth politicizing and crossed over to join the Republican Caucus.
Now, in August, home for a recess, members of Congress report over-whelming dissent against the expensive Senate bill granting amnesty to some eleven million illegal immigrants. A recent Washington Times story throws into doubt the allocation of funds to beef up defense against Illegals streaming in from Mexico. Indeed, Senator John McCain, (R-AZ) has already floated dropping the surge of boots on the ground in along the Mexican border admitting that it was lip service.
With the resignation of John Morton, head of ICE, (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) another voice has dropped in to explain to the public that ICE can in no way deport eleven million people anyway. The union of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council has already issued no-confidence in Presidential appointees picked to oversee deportation.
The National Border Patrol Council and the National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers have also denounced a duplicitous Administration policy to help spend money while insulating Illegals from deportation.
Cutting managerial hours and promoting literature that coaches Illegals how to lie to get by in America are only two examples of the institutionalized hoodwinking of an Administration that deported twice as many in 4 years as the previous did in 8.
So will the House ever deliver on its promise to handle the Senate’s act to redistribute Illegal Immigration before some time in 2017?
The media has yet to answer that question, but one thing is sure, the Congress that assured the public that any legislation would go into law step by step, allowing a path to amnesty only after the appropriate means of mass deportation is laid out will no longer be pressured to pass the Senate’s Martial Law.
The Department of Homeland Security owned up to losing track of a million illegal immigrants at the end of last July. The Chamber of Congress at the time sent a letter on behalf of some 400 businesses to the House of Representatives, informing them that failure to pass Immigration Reform was not option.
