The Judical Watch claims Obama's recent
immigration directive is Backdoor
I just got a survey from the Judicial Watch Committee (John Roberts must be a dirty word there now) entitled “Illegal Alien Election Impact” Survey. They’re so impartial, aren’t they? It would seem to me that title would disqualify it as an actual survey, but I’m a senior citizen so I imagine they thought they were preaching to the choir . . . Again!
They call President Obama’s action Backdoor Amnesty. The problem is many Republicans, the realistic ones, agree with his actions, even arch conservative Senator Mario Rubio, who was working on a similar plan when Obama beat him to the punch.
I think we all agree a survey shouldn’t be slanted, so let’s look at some of the questions, shall we?
1. Do you believe that taxpayer-funded expenses will increase, if because of Backdoor Amnesty measures, more illegal aliens gain access to these public services? Answer: It’s not amnesty yet, although it should be; we have eleven million (an estimate) illegal aliens in the U.S. and we aren’t going to get rid of them all. Besides, we’re talking kids here; their parents brought them into the country. They didn’t have a choice.
1B. Are you aware of similar taxpayer-funded expenditures for illegal aliens being incurred in the state of Minnesota? Answer: Do you work for Grover Norquist? You sure seem to like that word “tax-payer.” Are you aware Grover Norquist is a lobbyist who picks your pocket every time you turn around?
They go on to say there are 1.5 million school-aged illegal aliens living in the U.S. They say that costs us $7.7 billion. They don’t say where they got that number. Barry Goldwater said it was okay to lie to advance the conservative cause so I guess it’s okay. Worse yet, he said if you were a true conservative you had an obligation to lie.
2. Do you believe that you and other taxpayers in your state of Minnesota should be forced to foot the tax bill for the costs of educating illegal aliens?
Ans. Well, under Tim “T.Paw” Pawlenty support for public education went down, so I guess not. It won’t be long before we’re the Mississippi of the North if we keep electing Grover’s boys and girls.
2B. Do you believe that the costs of educating illegal aliens will increase if Backdoor Amnesty is granted to millions of illegal immigrants residing in the US and more school-aged illegal immigrants begin attending public schools and receiving in-state tution benefits for publicly funded colleges and universities? Ans: No, troll. They’re already going to school. Many have been here for years. The idea is that they’re hard-working, tax-payers who aren’t allowed to apply for citizenship through no fault of their own. Try to look beyond the end of your own nose, huh? Even Dick Cheney is pro gay marriage, now that his daughter is married. I know the world revolves around Dick Cheney and his family. Hey, did Halliburton ever pay him for that no-bid contract?
The survey compilers also claim as much as two-thirds of operating costs in some hospitals are uncompensated care of illegal aliens, at a cost of a billion a year. Comment: Evidence please, and not the Fox News kind.
3A. Do you feel that the problem of un-reimbursed medical expenses for illegal immigrants is causing taxpayer-funded health care costs in your state to increase as well. Answer: No, the 48 million uninsured citizens are causing it to rise. But John Roberts just ruled in favor of the public mandate, so take that, troll.
A Background comment calls the Hispanic lobby radical and the ACLU a left-wing open border group and claims the Obama Justice Department has filed lawsuits to block full implementation of Alabama and Arizona’s tough new immigration enforcements laws. Now the Obama administration is attempting to bypass Congress and unilaterally grant amnesty to illegal aliens through the back door. Comment: The Supreme Court just shot down most of the Arizona law, although cops can still stop suspicious looking Mexicans who could be Mexican-American citizens. But they left open the possibility of a lawsuit there as well.
4A. Do you believe the Obama administration, including the Department of Justice, is systematically making policy decisions based on leftist ideology and crass political interests rather than the dictates of the law? Answer: No, they’re pragmatic decisions. Something needs to be done about the eleven million illegal aliens. The Dream Act was a good start, but, as you know, the “Just Say No” mob refused to consider that. Even George W. Bush tried to provide a path to citizenship.
4B. Do you believe that one of the reasons the Obama administration is attempting to implement Backdoor Amnesty is to curry favor with Hispanic voters and potentially gain Hispanic voter support (both legal and illegal) to the rolls prior to the 2012 elections. Answer. Yes, wouldn’t you? Republicans cater to gun lovers, religious zealots, Pro-Life groups etc. But Barack Obama is black so he knows what it’s like to be discriminated against.
The survey compilers, Judicial Watch I guess, then threatens to sue the government. Comment: You go John Roberts! That really worked well with Affordable Health Care, didn’t it? All those millionaires who paid for those lawyers are going to be really pissed.
5. Do you support Judicial Watch Lawsuits to get to all the facts behind the Obama administration’s Backdoor Amnesty efforts, so that we can publicize these facts to Congress and the American People. Answer. Hell, no. Who runs Judicial Watch Anyway, Tim LaHaye? You do know that he thinks we’re in the End Times, and that he’s trying to make it happen, right?
This is not a survey; it’s a propaganda manual and a plea for money (Republican taxes). Notice how many times they use the term BACKDOOR AMNESTY? I wish the good old days were back when real people called you on the phone about this sort of survey so I could yell at them about their slanted questions. These days it’s just robots, and they can’t hear.
