For illegal immigration activists, Obama’s plan to force amnesty on America by unconstitutional executive action is not happening soon enough.
On Sunday, while speaking in support of Democrat Governor Dan Malloy in Bridgeport, Connecticut, activists in the audience heckled Obama, demanding he use an executive action to legalize illegal immigrants.
“I gave you relief administratively, and we’re going to work on the next one,” Obama told the hecklers. “So I support you. I’m with you. I’m with you. I’m with you. And you need to go protest the Republicans. Because I’m not the one blocking it.”
Democrats are feeling heat from illegal immigrant activists. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was interrupted numerous times on Thursday as she delivered a speech in Maryland. Michelle Obama was heckled the same day in Connecticut. Sen. Kay Hagan, a North Carolina Democrat, had her speech interrupted last week when activists refused stop heckling her.
The activists stepped up their tactics after the administration put off addressing amnesty until after the election.
According to the activists, the administration and Democrats cannot take Latino votes for granted, Politico reports. They want immediate action on illegal immigration, an issue that will undoubtedly dominate the Senate along with action on Obamacare after Republicans regain control after the midterm elections.
Democrats have taken umbrage. “It’s a little disturbing now days before the election to see so much focus on Democrats when it’s still absolutely clear that the Republicans are the enemy,” Jim Manley, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s former communications director, told Politico.
“Hold on, young lady,” Obama told a heckler. “Hold on a second. Hold on. Hold on. You’re a DREAMer, and I gave you relief administratively, and we’re going to work on the next one. The Republicans are blocking immigration reform. That’s one more reason why we need a Democratic Senate. (Applause.) So I support you. I’m with you. I’m with you. I’m with you. And you need to go protest the Republicans. (Applause.) Because I’m not the one blocking it.”
The Obama administration signed an executive action in 2012 implementing part of the DREAM Act known as Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA).
“It directs U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), to practice “prosecutorial discretion” toward some individuals who were brought to this country illegally as children and have remained in the country illegally,” writes Warren Mass for The New American.
Mass notes “prosecutorial discretion” is in essence amnesty.
The hecklers belong to United We Dream, an organization closely aligned with the Service Employees International Union renowned for violently attacking its opponents. In August, 2009, SEIU thugs put Kenneth Gladney in the hospital after he attempted to hand out Gadsden flags during an event held by Democrats for Rep. Russ Carnahan in Mehville, Missouri.
As noted by Americans for Legal Immigration, United We Dream is managed by the CtW Investment Group which uses union member pension funds for the Democrat political agenda. CtW stands for “Change to Win,” a federation of unions representing nearly 5.5 million members.
It is also funded in part by Open Society Foundations, a George Soros project. In 2010, Soros gave the group $75,000 to help the “network founded by immigrant youth activists to connect immigrant youth organizing efforts throughout the country and aggregate their collective power to impact change,” in other words force through unconstitutional action to legalize more than 11 million illegal immigrants.
In March, vice president Biden made reference to the number during a speech at the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s 2014 Legislative Summit.
“Eleven million people living in the shadows I believed are already American citizens,” Biden said. “These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to be able to contribute fully, and by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans in my view.”
The contribution Democrats are most eager to receive will be millions of additional votes to secure their political monopoly in the future.
