Comment: Obama's Deferred Action Promise Graph - Obama's Deferred Action Promise Graph has been updated as of August first and can be found here. We continue to receive numerous comments in regard to our graph and here is a sample.
"Oh, for Pete's sake ILW . . . Stop this unabashed politicizing of this issue. The comment above has no substance other than to bash Obama . . . who is responsible for the present DREAM stop-gap measure? OBAMA! Cut him a little slack and stop turning this forum into a grandstand for Mitt Romney for president.. . Do you want to argue politics . . . . or do you want real immigration reform? I want real immigration reform and the only way to get it is to stop politicizing immigration and stop putting Amnesty riders on otherwise cogent changes the immigration system sorely needs to bring it into the 21st century. The problem with this country's politics is the power machine that multi-term politicians are able to establish in Washington... Let's get back to basics and let Mexico deal with its own problems and allow America to determine what its own immigration policies will be without a Hispanic uprising. This is not Mexico North, this is the United States of America. Get the Republican Congress to pass the DREAM ACT. Get the to pass cogent immigration reform without an amnesty. Secure our borders through law enforcement, not military intervention and the building of the American Berlin Wall. Move on America . . ."
"I cannot believe that anyone is so misguided as to call The Republican candidate for President, a man with integrity. The Republican party for no better reason than to cripple Immigration reform voted against any and every immigration or immigrant benefit put before them. You blame the president for that?"
"This graph is incredibly disingenuous. The administration did not "promise" to grant deferred action to 1.4 million people. It promised to grant deferred action to individuals who satisfy the elements of the June 15 memo, which independent organizations have subsequently estimated to be as many as 1.4 million. If fewer people apply--or wait until after the November election to apply--it would hardly be fair to fault the Obama administration. And even if the 1.4 million estimate is correct, and all 1.4 million submit applications on August 15, it would take at least six months to process and approve them. I am all in favor of holding the administration accountable. But one cannot distort what the administration has promised and/or set expectations that are impossible to meet."
"Correction to an above comment --- the dream act of in 2007 was sponsored by Democrats but failed because only 10 Republicans voted for it. So there were not enough votes to break the filibuster. I hope no one listens to the statements you're spewing without any shred of evidence!
How can you help immigrants without even getting the basic facts straight?"
ILW, I hope this debate is not about dirty politics but about keeping this administration honest about promises made.
"To understand the President's executive order, it's important to understand the background and circumstances involved.There are an estimated 11,000,000 illegal aliens in the U.S., maybe millions more. Deporting a single one costs us, the American taxpayers, about $11,500 on average. Multiplied by 11 million that's $1,265,000,000,000,000.00. Yep. We don't have that kind of cash, not even a fraction of it; in fact, we are so deeply in debt that we maxed out all of our credit cards. That's why we just recently had the issue with raising the debt ceiling. The U.S. government came very close to declaring bankruptcy. Furthermore, if we deport about 400,000 illegal aliens per year, it would take us 27-1/2 years to deport all 11 million. We can't deport more, because that would cost money, more money for CBP and ICE agents, more money for judges, more money for detainment centers, and so on. But we don't have more money, and we, the American taxpayers don't want to pay more to deport more. So that's the background. With cash available to deport up to about 400,000 illegal aliens per year, all of them on credit, the President said to the immigration folks: listen, try to grab the criminals first, before you kick in the doors of school houses and drag children out, or even the little guy who works hard to support his family. That's the issue at hand: the biggest bang for our buck. He wants to deport 400,000 criminals per year, instead of 100,000 criminals and 300,000 children, while the 300,000 criminals he can't deport can keep on doing their thing. At some end we have to realize that we can't deport them all. This end is the kids who were brought to the U.S. before age 16 to no fault of their own.
"The administration's cost estimate of deporting all illegal immigrants in a letter to Sen John Cornyn in 2010: 'At current budget levels, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has the ability to remove approximately 400,000 aliens in a fiscal year. Our conservative estimate suggests that ICE would require a budget of more than $135 billion dollars to apprehend, detain and remove the Nation's entire illegal immigrant population. Such a budget would constitute a dramatic increase over ICE's current budget of $5.8 billion dollars.' That more than the $97 billion dollar estimate given four years earlier.
"As long as "the parties" keep us bickering as I have witnessed, they win."
"the republicans attract the immigrants to US from 1998 , and they came here ,and they vote to bush , that means if there is to many foreigners , the people can easy believe , that they are the reason of the nine eleven , the reason of nine eleven was the republicans and cia and mossad, and mi6. please give the immigrants theirs green card."
