The Democrats and Rinos are the ones “coming out of the shadows” as the tone of the debate over amnesty and a tsunami of newly legalized foreigners into America has become more sinister. Chuck Schumer is making his threats over Facebook, for all to see. While backroom arm-twisting may still be a favored mob tactic in Chicago and New York, their public faces are using the media to the same end.
Schumer recently posted on Facebook his version of “we can do this the easy way, or we can do it the hard way.” He threatened that Obama will “greatly curtail deportations” of illegals if Republicans don’t capitulate to Democrat demands and agree to amnesty.
Schumer gave Republicans an ultimatum, saying they can either “grow our economy by bringing in needed workers in high tech and agriculture areas, and provide a hard-earned path to eventual citizenship for the 11 million in the shadows, or they can sit idly by and watch the President greatly curtail deportations while 11 million continue to live in limbo here in America,”
He uses the same worn out talking points of doing jobs Americans won’t do and a hard-earned path to “eventual” citizenship, as well as the newer, technological-based argument of jobs Americans are too ignorant to do.
Schumer wrote, “It’s crystal clear where the issue of immigration reform is headed, and Republicans have only two choices to make.” Republicans can comply or “watch the President greatly curtail deportations while 11 million continue to live in limbo here in America.”
The immigration bill “has the support of liberals, moderates, and conservatives and all we need is the courage of the Republican leadership to make the right and obvious choice. –cs.”
Of course that claimed support must not exist or his extortion tactics wouldn’t be necessary. It seems that Mr. Schumer, “knuckles” might be a good nickname, and his party have recognized that they may not be able to shove this thing through Congress a second time and have decided to implement the bully option of their program.
On Thursday Obama directed Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to evaluate current practices to see how DHS can “conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law.” That would logically translate into how little enforcement and how enabling of illegal immigration can they get away with.
The acknowledgment that Obama will just completely quit enforcing the law is as dictatorial and tyrannical of an assertion as we have seen coming from this gang of outlaws in power to date. It is an admission for all to see that the American people are little more than a tool to their end and that they feel they are, in fact, above the law and untouchable.
When government officials reach this extent of blatant disregard for the citizens they are supposed to be serving, our country is in serious trouble. We have reached and are in the process of crossing the threshold into a tyrannical regime.
