Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Romney Touts Endorsement of Architect of Arizona, Alabama Laws

Rating: 11 votes, 5.00 average.

Wow, he's doubling down on the anti vote by announcing the endorsement of Kris Kobach, the Darth Vader of the xenophobes. It should be very interesting to see how he tries to court Hispanic votes after getting the endorsement of the man most Latinos rank as one of the most visible anti-immigrant leaders in the country. What is Romney thinking? The Obama commercials in Spanish are probably already being written quoting from this press release from the Romney campaign.

    "What is Romney thinking?"

    Maybe that 1070 is popular? That suing states like Arizona is unpopular? That "putting an end to magnets" plays better than protecting and creating new magnets? That support for "ensuring a tamper-proof system that allows employers to check the status of their employees" begs the question how could Obama oppose that but instead prefers ordering the closure of virtually all cases (with the parting gift of a work authorization card)? That a principled pro-rule of law stance resonates better than a corrupt look the other way in order to pander for ethnic votes stance?


    At least Obama can always respond to doubts about his execution of immigration law with his 400,000 figure.

    "The [deportation] statistics are actually a little deceptive because what we've been doing is with the stronger border enforcement we've been apprehending folks at the borders and sending them back," Obama said. "That is counted as a deportation, even though they may have only been held for a day or 48 hours"

    I wonder whose idea that was? This could turn Obama's strongest claim to enforcement into another cynical manipulation of the system for political reasons. At the very least, his and Napolitano's big number brag is weakened.


    "The Obama commercials in Spanish are probably already being written"

    Great for Spanish ads. Obama surely won't run any "I sued Arizona!" English ads. The interesting question is whether Romney will make immigration an issue in the general election. High unemployment makes it a more attractive proposition.

    Interesting Kobach goes around the country pushing through laws which he can never push through in his state because of the presence of the pro-immigrant governor Sam Brownback. Numbers USA are racist as usual. I have a better proposal for the citizens of South Carolina than the Numbers USA has...let us stop legal immigration into SC and in return the state will agree to ban all foreign investment that creates jobs there. Without foreigners that state will go bankrupt...BMW literally owns the Clemson auto engineering department because the state cannot afford to pay for it.

    http://carolinaregionalcenter.com/sc/overview

    Fuji has plants in Greenville..and Numbers USA is ok with it as long as too many Japanese individuals dont show up....perhaps they are worried about intermarriage with the locals. The citizens of SC (and Numbers USA) are pretty shameless..no problem with foreign money as long as foreigners who invest stay away especially "if they dont look like us". SC is the last state that can afford to antagonize foreigners. Alabama is not much different as far as shamelessness is concerned....a few years ago an Asian auto executive was seeing a volleyball coach at a local university...the locals put enough pressure on the company to have him decide to go home and break up the relationship...I think Numbers USA is more concerned about this than about foreigners taking jobs...in fact SC evidence indicates that foreigners create jobs. This shamelessness extends now to Singapore...where the locals want foreign money but dont want foreign talent. The Prime Minister has literally said that the businesses no longer want to come if some of the foreign staff are not allowed in...as a result, economic growth has declined to 1-3% range from the 14% range they enjoyed just a year ago.

    Or maybe that having 50 different Immigration states laws is stupid when we have a federal law. That maybe the power that governs foreign relations isn the one that ought to be regulation immigration and that makes more sense.....It is only unpopular with Republicans and antis!!! That is the minority of the population, THE MAJORITY of american favor a common sense approach to immigration(that is the smart folks in America Jack in case you are wondering who?).

    That "putting an end to magnets" plays better than protecting and creating new magnets?

    Or maybe punishing minors that made no decision to come here illegally and yet can become productive members of society and can contribute to the greatness of this country is very stupid!! After all America took in Romneys family a bunch of polygamists which I have nothing against but he is the one making the moral argument.

    "That support for "ensuring a tamper-proof system that allows employers to check the status of their employees" begs the question how could Obama oppose that"

    Because America does not like a national ID specially the Repuks remember "we do not like government in our lives" and they have E-verify I thought you were a BIG fan so which is it Jack I mean I know you want the Gestapo on the streets stopping anyone that is not Caucasian but really which is it????

    "but instead prefers ordering the closure of virtually all cases (with the parting gift of a work authorization card)?"

    Well the Repuks are always crying government waste as part of Government spending, so streamlining the process and focusing efforts of the Homeland Security department and courts in the criminals as opposed to families is more efficient use of our tax dollars and government spending. You want to pay for the police state tell Romney that he will have to increase taxes a bunch on his rich buddies to pay for it. Ohh yeah I am still waiting on you to produce the data on people getting a work permit on prosecution discretion other wise is BS or just an anti talking point.

    "That a principled pro-rule of law stance resonates better than a corrupt look the other way in order to pander for ethnic votes stance?"

    No...... is actually a way to act legally within the executive power that helps you mange Immigration better given that the Congress just wants to go a collect a paycheck with out actually doing legislative work. He is elected to govern and manage the government and its agencies that is all, see he is actually working.

    "Great for Spanish ads. Obama surely won't run any "I sued Arizona!" English ads. The interesting question is whether Romney will make immigration an issue in the general election. High unemployment makes it a more attractive proposition."

    LOL I seriously doubt that the Obama or Romney campaign will take political or campaign advise from people like you or run an add just to make you feel better.....are voting for Obama Jack? They are already running the adds with the High Unemployment V. Immigration(legal Immigration) so your buddies at FAIR are already on your same page. But see it falls flat because you have business leaders going on TV saying that they have plenty of jobs but the skills gap is the reason they can't fill them and guess what??? They are asking for skilled immigrants !!!

    May be Americans particularly down South are pretty shameless. They eagerly take foreign money (investment) but dont want foreigners around? May be the first question to racists like Glen Beck at the Numbers USA masqueerading as environmentalists is who is creating most jobs in SC.

    May be if you dont like foreigners, why dont you look to white southerners to create jobs and feed you down in SC?

    Romney's great-grandfather immigrated to Mexico to avoid religious percecution in the US (I take it, it was poligamy), but he could not get citizenship there [at that time] because he was an American. So, now Romney is proud to spread the injustice, return the favor so to speak. How dumb!

    May be he did not want to take a non-white wife as racism was rampant among the mormons at least until 1978. Even today many mormons strongly disapprove of even white mormons marrying Asian mormons...I know one young mormon lady from Japan who married a mormon from Romney's home state of Michigan..she says that she is still not accepted (though she is tolerated) by the inlaws but not even tolerated by her husband's extended family.

    Many of Romney's family is Mexican though. Most of the illegal migration is due to the doing of the mormon church. Many mormon missionaries go to Mexico, and the church wants Mexican money but they dont want Mexicans around their neighborhood....similar to foreign investment and migration attitudes in SC but at a lower level and Romney definitely belongs to this group. However, I will not call Romney a racist until he renegs on his promise of issuing green cards to foreign graduates of US universities. If he has legal immigration ideas, let us here it. I call Kobach a bigot for only one reason...he does not have nay legal migration ideas for the skilled, unskilled or families. If you are against illegal immigration but to push for legal immigration including foreign investor visas, I will support you. Otherwise hell with you!

    Let me see who benefits from legalization of illegals:

    Employers: No, they will have to pay more. They are not interested really.
    Consumers (a.k.a citizens): Not really. They will have to pay more for services and products.
    Politicians: Not really. They always want a political football.

    Nobody is ready to play with this political dynamite especially in this economic climate. DOL says that labor market will take another 8-10yrs before unemployment goes down to pre-recession levels. So lets forget any legalization of illegals until then. Even then it will depend on make up of Congress at the time. If one party does not control government then you can forget legalization.

    Legalization likely to happen if they elect Jeb Bush, Rick Snyder or Robert McDonnell as President. Mitch Daniels? May be! On the Dem side it is very difficult but Tom Hickenlooper of Colorado along with Mark Warner of Virginia are the only two who may be willing to take that risk.

    "Ohh yeah I am still waiting on you to produce the data on people getting a work permit on prosecution discretion other wise is BS or just an anti talking point."

    As far as I know, that information has not been released. Based on this administration's track record, I'm guessing it would take another subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee which would be ignored again (even if the information was compiled long ago). Last time, DHS indicated that the decision not to comply with the terms of the subpoena was made at a very high level. What does that tell you? The Obama administration is playing politics with this law enforcement system and arrogantly do not want the public to know what is happening.

    The funny thing is they probably don't want either the pro-enforcements or anti-enforcements to know. As we have seen, however much non-enforcement they do, the anti-enforcements will be outraged that it isn't more and loudly demand more. Obama obviously likes to sell things either way (depending on the audience). For that, President Transparency needs the public to be in the dark.

    He claims it's about civil liberties when suing Arizona but when it comes to habeas corpus, Night and Fog is more his speed. Didn't he he make a lot of lofty promises about this? I guess he wants to reserve for himself every power Bush claimed.

    "If President Obama signs this bill [NDAA], it will damage both his legacy and American's reputation for upholding the rule of law. The last time Congress passed indefinite detention legislation was during the McCarthy era and President Truman had the courage to veto that bill. We hope that the president will consider the long view of history before codifying indefinite detention without charge or trial."

    Remember when Obama said he'd done everything within his power (administratively) on immigration and then a few days later did what he just said he could not under the Constitution? He talks as if he's limited by law and the Constitution. The problem is, like Bush, he just does what he wants anyway.

    So basically you can't back up your claim that the Obama administration is giving out work permits with prosecutorial discretion!!! So you keep repeating it but really is just an anti talking point.... you know what they say Jack FACTS talk and BS walks, I guess you have just been walking on this one lately.
