Millions of Illegals Given Work Permits Since 2009

When President Obama went on national television to unveil his plan for executive amnesty, conservatives hung their heads in dismay. This was it. This was the hope and change he’d been talking about. Just as we were beginning to overcome the recession – no thanks to Obama’s government-first recovery plan – here he comes to ruin the gains.

As it turns out, his administration has been thwarting the law on illegal immigration for most of his stay in the White House. Shockingly, more than 5.46 million immigrants have obtained work permits from the federal government since 2009. According to data acquired from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, 982,000 of those permits went to illegals and other foreign nationals who did not meet legal standards for employment. Many of them crossed over without the slightest scrutiny.

The numbers come to us from the Center for Immigration Studies, which has released a report documenting the many failures of Obama’s immigration policies. In throwing back the curtain on the work permits, the Center has explained why most of the nation’s improvement in the job growth sector has been entirely due to immigrant employment.

“I was astonished at the huge number of work permits that are being issued by the Obama administration outside the legal immigration system through executive discretion, especially at a time of high unemployment and stagnant wages,” said Jessica Vaughan of CIS.

Under congressional law, 1.1 millions legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers are permitted to enter the U.S. annually. The 5.46 million work permits uncovered by CIS are above and beyond those baseline, legal numbers. Obama, whether through intentional discretion or a lack of competency, has turned this country into a haven for unrestricted immigration.

No Hope In Sight

Meanwhile, there are growing concerns over whether the GOP’s headline candidate for 2016 will actually do anything about the problem. Jeb Bush has been outspoken on the issue of illegal immigration, but not in the way conservatives might want him to be. According to a recent article in The Hill, Bush’s Mexican-born wife has been responsible for shaping his views on illegal immigration. Those views, as he stated last year, include the idea that immigrants who break America’s laws to come across the border are committing an “act of love.”

Speaking at his father’s presidential library, Bush said, “It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that it’s a different kind of crime, that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”

But Bush is arguing emotions, and that’s really not the issue. You don’t have to be angry at illegal aliens to oppose amnesty. You don’t have to hate them to support enforcing the law. The majority of illegals may very well be fine, upstanding, compassionate human beings, but that’s quite beside the point. We need our next president to understand that what’s right for America isn’t always what’s easy.

In fact, that’s conservatism in a nutshell. It’s a shame we don’t see more of it.

  1. Under Obama Americans were remove from their jobs so that the illegals may have them at a lower pay. This muslim pig does not care about the American people and has proven that by allowing Illegals to freely enter this country Illegally and remain, now Obama want them to have the right to vote, collect social security, medicare, medicaid, and them free phone and given them more rights than any other true American has.

    • obama is the Chief Illegal Alien in this Country. That is why he has such concern for them. He is their main instrument of change. He is not an American Citizen, and he has no work permit (the first one this crook should have issued, is to himself).

  2. Our Government LIED in ’88 and in ’92 when they shoved over 30 million wetbacks down our necks. Remember Tip O’Neil saying that border security would be first and formost? 30 years later same frickin lies from the same party…. I do blame Regan and Bush for not protecting our boarder, slick willy did NOTHING about it nor did Bush 2 the sequel. The are NOT immegrants, they are invaders. Maybe we need to go south of the boarder take over a few cities and demand welfare from Mexico! See how far we get until the federales start shooting.

  3. No to Bush….and arrest Obama…..whats the Hold UP? Are those we elect so whimpy and do not know what their duty is to the country that they sold their souls to money no matter where it comes from? These are not leaders but traitors to the highest form therefore a lot of them need to be arrested and no business as usual.

      We need real heroes Like SGT Saunders .Vic Morrow of Combat.. Who in One Episode took out a Panzer on his Own and saved the driver of a Supply Army truck .When Hollywood produced reality Of Worth. Men Like Lee Marvin ,Steve McQueen , Marine vets and many More. Where are the real men of America of Frontier stock. Are there any in WA D.C ?

      I have some form of Shell Shock but I function and Had my Nightmares .Real Men Turn to Christ and I am Good To Go Since 75.

    • Paul Revere Now———–You have the right idea. Everyone wants to Impeach the PUNK. I want him ARRESTED, TRIED, CONVICTED and HUNG or whatever other way they want to EXECUTE the BASTARD. He is EVIL for sure. WE don’t want or need him but as long as there are, blacks, ILLEGALS and dumb ass whites in OUR country, people like ASSBAMA will materialize. It’s too bad we can’t rid OUR country of this type of people. Don’t make a mistake about my including blacks in this statement, I am NOT against blacks, he was their HOPE. But, he gave them nothing but a worse life. Mexicans too. He cares NOTHING about the country as I have said before. DUMP THE PUNK. NOW

    Speaking at his father’s presidential library, Bush said, “It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that it’s a different kind of crime, that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”

    But Bush is arguing emotions, and that’s really not the issue. You don’t have to be angry at illegal aliens to

    Perhaps more apt here, we need our next president to understand that what’s good for illegal immigrants isn’t necessarily good for the country…But..

    Failure to reject illegal immigrants by swift and sure deportation has had consequences similar to those associated with similar tolerance of vice, for example, by Alexander Pope more than two centuries ago, as follows: “Vice is a monster of so frightful mien as to be feared needs only to be seen, but seen to oft, familiar with her face, we first endure, then pity , then finally embrace”.

    And having thus embraced illegal immigrants by default, shaking that embrace is complicated by the force of Dirksen’s Inequality: “The mind is no match with the heart for persuasion; constitutionality is no match for compassion.”

    Perhaps granting “temporary worker permits” to current illegal residents, at the termination of which holders must go back home might be the right balance between heart and mind for legislators. Quien sabe. But as Buddy Holly and John Wayne would have said about the realization of such a presumptuous idea,

    • The KEY WORD, illegal, All immigration should be suspended UNTIL those here, legally are secure in their jobs and OUR YOUNG people graduating from HS and College are able to strike out on their own, not in Mom and Dad’s basement. I would like to see my son’s, Housepainters, get more than 3 or 4 days A MONTH work, before Obama they were working 5 days a week and sometimes 6, we knew between Thanksgiving and New Years things slowed down, but they have come to a halt in Sept, and just now. getting a couple days, their boss had to sell his house to keep company going, Illegals DO NOT pay Workers Comp, Insurance and Soc. sec., they send over 1/2 of what they make back to their homeland by western Union. They rent house, living 15 or more to a house, when they move out (evicted) the owner has to pay more than he made on rent in repairs. Our teens cannot get jobs, as illegals now take them, even to del. of papers. ALL ILLEGALS, including the one in WH, should be deported, first he needs to be tried for his crimes in our Courts, and serve his sentence.

      • it’s worse than that… Illegals are filing fraudulent tax returns using stolen ID’s or fake social security or Federal ID Tax numbers getting refunds and earned income credit checks to the tune of BILLIONS of Dollars.
        They are bringing in diseases that are infecting and killing our children… exposing millions to the ravages of diseases long defeated in America. These illegals are using our medical facilities without paying and have been given priority on organ transplants while US Citizens die waiting.
        Our schools are being inundated with Spanish only children… who take resources away from US children. They are receiving welfare and other social services that we can not afford to give to our own children and many of them are better off than our own working poor and their children.
        This must stop or we will be overrun by the poor South of the Border… we simply don’t have the capacity to care for all the indigent in the world… not without becoming indigent ourselves.

        • I agree with all you say, I know several instances where Feds arrested Gov’t, and DMV workers for fraudulently supplying ID’s, BUT it’s been worse the last 6 years, ^ years ago my son’s were making good livings, today, one lives in a friends basement, the other in my basement, second one has seen his marriage go down the tubes, and his son’s now having a hard time getting work, My oldest son lost his job, because he was over 50, another cut to part time after getting cancer, yet every where I go I see people who can barely speak English working, what has happened to the Country my ancestors founded and fought so hard for??

          • SOLD !! to the highest bidder @ the White House in exchange for political power, cash & social(ist) change in America.

        • DING! DING! DING! You’ve struck the Truth Bell 3 times! Theft, Disease & Social Servises. Trifecta!

    • Bush is not arguing emotions… he is arguing for a PEON SOCIETY where he and is elite class become the new age aristocracy… and we become their servants… just as the millions of PEONS invading the US are accustomed. We are seeing fundamental change occur in America… our culture is being corrupted and the middle class destroyed in the name of false charity.
      Destroying the middle class of America is not lifting the poor in Mexico or the illegal alien in the US… it is destroying both. Handouts and tolerance for criminal conduct doesn’t make for an orderly and successful society or economy… it makes for a third world of chaos and gross oppression of the working class … semi-skilled and unskilled workers..
      Eventually, it will touch the skilled and professionals as our economy implodes under the stress and pressure created by permitting these illegals entry and work in the US. America and the third world are not better off under such illicit activity by our leadership… in government and the commercial world. Globalist and progressives are destroying our Economy and our Constitutional Republic… creating the perfect storm for the IMPOSITION of a NEW WORLD ORDER, unlike any our founding father’s envisioned.

    • Bush the sequel is part of the cabal that is destroying America for profit. I am conservative by nature and that C student should have never been prez, every time he could have made a difference he capitulated to the socialists in government.

  5. Give it all away OBAMA I ALWAYS WANTED TO WORK FOR RICH MIDDLE EARSTETN FAMILY AND EDUCATE THEIR KIDS INSTEAD OF MINE!!! GOOD JOB BOEHNER THANKS FOR BETRAYING US BUT WE DEMOCRATS DONT CARE SO WHY DHOULD ANY OF US

  6. If you cant read or speak English isnt it a bad idea to give illegalss work permits or drivers licenses?

    But i guess it doesnt take much to fill in a circle come election time.

    PROBLEM: Unauthorized visitors

    DEFINITION: Unauthorized visitors are those persons who enter a country without legal authorization and those who overstay their authorized period.

    CAUSES, REASONS, AND PROVENANCE: The main reason for unauthorized visitors is that people want and hope to improve their lives and the lives of their families and will gravitate to those situations where the
    economics provide the incentives to make the change.

    DISCUSSION: I think all would stipulate that anyone has the right to attempt to better his or her conditions
    insofar as those efforts do not infringe upon the rights of others.

    Each nation has the right and obligation to establish immigration laws for the orderly and rational
    assimilation of authorized immigrants.

    Do the following comments provide justification for unauthorized immigration?

    1. Unauthorized immigrants are looking to better their situations.

    2. Unauthorized immigrants provide inexpensive labor and are hard workers.

    3. This Nation was built upon immigrants.

    4. It is virtually impossible to find and deport 12,000,000 unauthorized immigrants.

    The answers to the above four should be an unequivocal “NO”.

    If anyone disagrees with that, I will appreciate his or her reasoning for a “yes” response.

    RECOMMENDED “COMPREHENSIVE” SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM:

    A foolproof system must be devised, implemented, with substantial penalties for non-compliance that will
    verify a person’s legal authorization to work in the United States.

    The concept of “anchor babies” should be eliminated, either by a pragmatic interpretation of the 14th
    Amendment (displaced the disputed Civil Rights legislation of 1866, which was
    passed by Congress over Andrew Johnson’s veto, and which was proposed by Congress
    six months after the 13th Amendment had been ratified), by Congressional legislation in accordance with Section 5 of the 14th Amendment, or by a Constitutional Amendment, that could and should be passed by the House and Senate and ratified by the requisite 38 states within a year.

    There should be a $4.00 (arbitrary) per gallon increase in the federal excise tax on gasoline and
    diesel, at the pump.

    A tax credit would be allowed any U.S. taxpayer (who possesses a valid driver’s license and submits proof of
    vehicle registration and proof of insurance) in the amount of $2,000.00 per year (10,000 miles @ 20 MPG = 500 gallons, thus, 500 X $4.00 = $2,000.00).

    Ancillary benefits would include that this federal excise tax would be collected from all visitors, authorized
    and unauthorized, and this would stimulate purchasers of new vehicles to demand more mileage efficiency, i.e., there would be no need for the government to force manufacturers to increase mileage efficiencies. The marketplace would be effective.

    Federal legislation should be passed that would eliminate all minimum wage laws. The “minimum wage”
    concept should be replaced with a massive expansion of the EITC regulations, which would cover all U.S. taxpayers who are older than 17 years of age.

    Another benefit would be that labor costs would be shifted from “above-the-line” to
    “below-the-line”, making our industries more competitive.

    CONCLUSION: If the above changes were
    legislated, a substantial number of unauthorized visitors would conclude that
    it would be better to end their visits, since the economics of remaining in the
    United States, without authorization, would be substantially diminished.

    After a year, the situation should be reviewed and adjustment should be made to further the resolution of
    this serious matter.

    It is logical that a newborn should assume the nationality of the mother, regardless of the venue of the
    birth, therefore, the strategy of a mother, who has no authorization to be in the U.S., giving birth in the United States should be of no consequence.

    This is a nascent effort at offering a pragmatic and rational solution to this serious matter.

    NOTES: This will be a process, i.e., not an overnight solution. I will appreciate all comments, critical
    as well as supportive, with the former being most appreciated if rational reasons are included.

    Representative Sherman is aware of this article, has promised a response and has failed to do so. We, the
    People are begging for leaders, not pure politicians who have embedded within
    their DNA the need to withhold the truth.

    THE FOLLOWING IS A RESPONSE TO A
    COMMENT TO THE ABOVE:

    (modified on August 24, i.e., not
    included in original response,)

    June 13, 2013

    Phunyfarm,

    Thank you for your comments and
    perspective.

    My comments should be and are
    meant to be the beginning of a serious

    “problem-solving”
    discussion of this extremely serious matter.

    Most respond negatively to the
    excise tax with the perception that they couldn’t

    afford $8.00 per gallon.
    Apparently, those do not understand the tax credit,

    until they stop yelling at the
    idea long enough to have it explained to them.

    Additional benefits would be that
    all visitors would pay the $8.00 per gallon,

    which would benefit our tax
    receipts, AND purchasers of automobiles will demand more efficient vehicles
    (the tax credit would expire within 5-10 years).

    The EITC would substitute for
    minimum wage laws ONLY for American citizens and those with legal authority to
    work, here. The rationale for the 18yo

    requirement is to provide a
    disincentive for high school students to leave school early.

    The lack of a minimum wage and
    increased expenses (gasoline) would make it

    difficult for those visitors who
    decided to stay rather than go back to country

    of origin. All
    “visitors” should be welcomed to come and enjoy activities…., then
    go home and live happy lives.

    Again…., these thoughts
    should be discussed and “fine-tuned”.

    At a Townhall Meeting a couple
    months ago, I gave a copy to my Congressman, Brad Sherman. Before I handed it
    to him, as I walked up to him, he shook my hand and exclaimed that I want to
    change how our government functions and have 17 different causes. We have had a
    number of discussions and he has NEVER disagreed with me. At a
    “coffee”, last year, he came up to me and whispered that he was
    closer to my ideas than any one else in Congress.

    The unfortunate factor is that he
    is a politician. Mr. Sherman is possibly one of our most intelligent and
    knowledgeable people in Congress and I like him, but he does not appear to be
    that which We the People are begging for, a leader, and, as with almost all
    politicians, he has the DNA embedded within that enables him to withhold the
    truth, at best.

    He told me to write my phone
    number on the item I gave him (Illegal Visitors), but has not called nor has
    any of his staff.

    UPDATE: Late June, I spoke
    with Scott, Rep. Sherman’s top campaign person, who was going to review the
    above and get back to me.

    Finally, on July 11, since Scott
    had not called me, I called him and expressed my displeasure with his
    failure. The conversation (admittedly, more of a monologue by me) lasted
    about 15 minutes. Again, he has failed to follow-up.

    • I agree with most of the original, except the hooie Re: $4 gas which would soon be convoluted to harm citizens.

      • Ron,

        Thank you for you short comment, but you didn’t offer why you believe it would
        harm citizens.

        Extracted from the article:

        A tax credit would be allowed any U.S. taxpayer (who possesses a valid driver’s
        license and submits proof of vehicle registration and proof of insurance) in
        the amount of $2,000.00 per year (10,000 miles @ 20 MPG = 500 gallons, thus,
        500 X $4.00 = $2,000.00).

        Ancillary benefits would include that this federal excise tax would be collected from all visitors, authorized and unauthorized, and this would stimulate purchasers of new vehicles to demand more mileage efficiency, i.e., there would be no need for the government to force manufacturers to increase mileage efficiencies. The marketplace would be effective.

        RESPONSES: Any citizen who would use less than 500 gallons per year would actually benefit.

        Any citizen who would use more than 500 gallons per year would be adversely affected and would be stimulated to purchase a more efficient vehicle, which would force manufactures
        to develop more efficient vehicles. E.g., one using 600 gallons (600 x 25
        mpg = 15,000 miles) would suffer an additional $400 non-reimbursed federal
        excise tax, which equates to $0.67 per gallon over the total of 600 gallons.
        One using 400 gallons per year would benefit by $400.

        All non-citizens would not receive any reimbursement; therefore the federal excise tax collections would be substantially higher. It would make costs of living for unauthorized visitors more expensive.

        • Mike; I’d worry that once D.C. got their hands on it , they’d manipulate it to burden (share the wealth) the middle class with added regs. that would defeat the original purpose. Remember those that don’t pay taxes still get to vote & impose taxes on the productive.

          • Ron,
            We should be directing our efforts at problem-solving, not negativity.
            Yes, we must contemplate what might go wrong.
            Once those potential pitfalls are recognized, we must establish parameters that would prevent or mitigate.
            We must make the effort to do the best we can.
            Understanding, rational thinking, balance, equity and logic will provide the answers…
            Stipulation: All (99.20491%) of our problems are rooted in Congress.
            Very sad, but very true.

  8. Make sure there are note votes for Jeb. In addition to the illegals given work permits, we are going to give them tax refunds for the years they have worked and not filed. ” Vote for the most conservative candidate that has the best the best chance to win “. (William F. Buckley) …The Buckley Rule… Our job is to identify and promote that candidate. Also, to shut down the Republican Establishment. McCain, Romney etc…ring a bell?

  9. America really needs a Government and a President that will enforce the Constitution. To date we have never had an Idiot like Obama, however the job was done very good any time. We need maybe10,000 more U.S. Border Patrols agents, along our Borders, and as Illegals are caught, either return then same day are the next day. No trial r hearing just nothing just return them. Since America will not do any harm to them, of coarse they return back. Something must be done to them to punish them, so they will not return. Any idea’s what. Maybe the third time, cut off a finger r shoot them? No that will not be allowed. Need something?

  10. It definitly should be a crime to become an ECONOMIC OPPORTUNIST… willing to violate the law… not only the immigration laws but Identity theft, banking fraud, and in many other cases social services fraud. These illegal aliens commit a disproportional number of violent crimes in America, including rape and murder.. They are not presented by the likes of BUSH… whose Globalist and Big Government/Corporation elitist… view these criminals as the basis for establishing a ‘PEON Society’… a culture whereby they are the top feeders, and the rest of America must fall in line with their vision or suffer serious financial ruin.

  11. Corporate welfare is a live and well.. selling our national security out for cheap labor.

  12. Omuslim breaking the law right from the start.

  13. So we have a total of 11.5% of our work force currently out of work and now we add millions of “Illegals from all over the world” to our work force. Again the POTUS has shown his total hatred for this country and lack of caring for our out of work Americans by flanting his power over the congress – which are the representatives of we the American People. Somewhere in Kenya there is a village lacking an Idiot.

  14. A rat would make a better President than Jeb. Jeb thinks it is a love thing. He married a Mexican he met in Mexico when he was 16. If J Bush or Clinton gets elected as President We The People can kiss the United States goodbye. And I will move out before I see my country Fall.

  15. A us citizn wants a job, Get in line behind obumas people — illegal immigrats, Muslums,.

  16. Obama will pay for those who are looking for work he let you into America with the measles he should pay for that also if not send Obama back from where he came from Africa he doe not like America any whey. He is not a colored person also.

  17. To get a work permit they should be a American to become one joint the Army man or women for Four or more years fight for your country first or go back from where you came from. with Obama he is not an American Also.

  18. Add to coctituion

  19. Even if you need help, tell them NO jobs available. Just go to the employment office and find an American that needs a job.
