Obama To Seek $2 Billion For Illegal Crisis

by JASmius

Why?  Because since congressional Republicans weren't willing to create his illegal alien invasion for him, and he therefore had to unconstitutionally create it himself, he thinks that they should now at least, belatedly, be willing to subsidize it.  Then he can take the two bil and use it to import the next wave or two of "undocumented" foreign children instead.

If voting were professional football, this would be the Democrat "draft":

Barack Obama will seek more than $2 billion to respond to the flood of immigrants illegally entering the U.S. through the Rio Grande Valley area of Texas and ask for new powers to deal with returning immigrant children apprehended while traveling without their parents, a White House official said Saturday.

He's asking for new powers, now?  Huh; well, first time for everything, I guess.  Still sounds like his version of the Enabling Act.  And there's also the matter of his really not needing any "new" powers because he's pretty much already cleaned out Article I, Section 1.

This would lead to the question of, "Why bother, then?"  The answer, it seems to me, is to set up a public justification for going ahead and taking those "new powers" anyway after congressional Republicans tell him to get stuffed because they hate his guts and don't trust him any farther than they could throw Michelle.

In case you have ever wondered why Barack Obama has had the worst congressional relations of any presidential administration in American history, now you know.  It's like the crisis exploitation equivalent of Astroglide.

With Obama looking to Congress for help with what he has called an "urgent humanitarian situation," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi visited a Border Patrol facility in Brownsville that held unaccompanied children.

Evidently because O needed a rich, ditzy heiress version of Tricia Takanawa.  Also, because Paris Hilton wasn't available.

"The fact is these are children — children and families," Pelosi said. "We have a moral responsibility to address this in a dignified way."

"'I'd have the dirty, smelly, scruffy ragamuffins all aborted but we need to harvest fifty years' worth of their votes first.'"

In Brownsville, Pelosi said she holds little hope that Congress will pass comprehensive immigration reform this year but that politics should be set aside.
"Pelosi knows Barack Obama will pass comprehensive immigration reform this year, so Republicans should put their opposition to amnesty aside so that she can regain her Speaker's rubber stamp and all the relevance that comes with it."

"A few days ago I would have been more optimistic about comprehensive immigration reform," Pelosi said.

"Before that Tea Party Nazi assassinated that useful idiot Eric Cantor, I would have been more optimistic about shoving another amnesty down the country's throat."

"I thought that we had been finding a way because we have been very patient and respectful of (Speaker of the House John Boehner) trying to do it one way or another."

Wow, didn't have to translate that one.

"I don't think he gives us much reason to be hopeful now, but we never give up. There's still the month of July."

That one, either.

But while Crazy Nancy may never give up, her amnesty point man has:

This past week, a leading House supporter of policy changes said legislative efforts on the issue were dead. Representative Luis Gutierrez of Illinois-4, who's been one of the most bullish Democrats about the chances for action, said he had given up.

Thus setting the stage for Barack Obama's next "dangerously authoritarian" power grab.

Coups de tat sure are a great spectator sport, aren't they?
