Obama heads to Texas to push immigration overhaul

When President Obama heads to Texas with the intent to address Illegal immigration, and possibly his intent amnesty, we rely on a Texan to bring us the story form the Lone Star state. Below, Fred Witzell, aka TexasFred sums up the situation with his usual straight forwarded bulldog tenacity. Thanks Fred!

Obama heads to Texas to push immigration overhaul
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is making his first trip as president to the U.S.-Mexico border, using the setting to sharpen his call for a remake of the nation’s immigration laws and try to cast the GOP as the obstacle standing in its way.

The president’s speech in El Paso, Texas, on Tuesday, and his visit to a border crossing there, are the latest high-profile immigration events by Obama, who has also hosted meetings at the White House recently with Latino lawmakers, movie stars and others.

It all comes despite an unfavorable climate on Capitol Hill, where Republicans who control the House have shown no interest in legislation that offers a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants.

That’s led to criticism that Obama’s efforts are little more than politics in pursuit of the ever-growing Hispanic electorate ahead of the 2012 election. White House officials dispute that. They acknowledge the difficulties in getting a bill but say it’s likelier to happen if the president creates public support for immigration legislation, leading to pressure on Republican lawmakers.

TexasFred: I see no point in beating around the bush here, let’s just get right to the heart of the matter, this trip by Obama has little to do with immigration, it has everything to do with another attempt at an amnesty bill for ILLEGALS and pandering to the LEGAL families of those individuals that choose to circumvent the laws of this nation.

It appears that any time Americans try to stand up for the LAWS of this nation, and clamor for enforcement of IMMIGRATION laws, and the removal of those that violate those laws, we hear cries of BIGOT and RACIST.

I have asked this question before and I have yet to have anyone address me with an answer that wasn’t a libber screed on immigration, so, in the interest of *fair and balanced* I am going to ask one more time: When did ILLEGAL become a RACE?

When did it become RACIST to enforce the laws of the United States of America?

There is no ONE particular RACE of people being targeted, the term ILLEGAL applies to all persons, regardless of race or nationality, that are in THIS nation illegally.

Texas House passes ‘sanctuary cities’ bill

AUSTIN - After hours of emotional debate, the Republican-led Texas House voted 100-47 on Monday night to give preliminary approval to legislation that would ban so-called sanctuary cities that critics contend are havens for illegal immigrants.

Latino lawmakers charged that the bill – one of Gov. Rick Perry’s top priorities – would lead to racial profiling and force millions of Texas Hispanics to “live in fear.”

Rep. Lon Burnam, D-Fort Worth, who represents a heavily Hispanic district, called the bill “one of the most overtly racist pieces of legislation I’ve seen.”

Supporters tout the bill by Rep. Burt Solomons, R-Carrollton, as a powerful weapon against illegal immigration. Solomons described the measure as “a good bill.”

Full Story Here: Texas House passes ‘sanctuary cities’ bill
I have a good friend in Austin, he’s a Conservative lawmaker and we converse regularly. After the passing of the Texas House Bill 12 told me, “Yep…were all racists. Didn’t know I was ‘one’ till I got to Austin.”

I know that feeling. I had NO idea what a racist and bigot I was until I began blogging. I was under the impression I was a staunch supporter of the American legal system, turns out that by supporting that system I am now a *vile racist* because of the views I have on border security and how to enforce that security.

If you want to see how Texans view this *sanctuary city* thing, see the graph below, it is linked to it’s source.

From the original story:
“We already know from the first two years, the last Congress, that there was political opposition to comprehensive immigration reform, including from some places where there used to be political support,” said presidential spokesman Jay Carney. “We are endeavoring to change that dynamic by rallying public support, by raising public awareness about the need for comprehensive immigration reform.”
The Obama Regime, and the Bush debacle that preceded it, yes I do look at it as a debacle, for a number of reasons, but in this particular instance because Bush DID try to push an amnesty bill off on the American people, they have (Bush and Obama), in these efforts, failed to realize, Americans do NOT want these immigration reforms rammed down our throats, we don’t want, and won’t stand for these back-door attempts at amnesty, and bloggers like me will continue to point out the efforts of Obama and Company every time they try, and call them for exactly what they are, PANDERING politicos, looking for votes in order to sustain the most destructive political machine in the history of this nation!

If you believe America has immigration laws that are too strict, just do a Google search and look up the immigration laws of Mexico. Maybe we need to adopt their laws.
