Obama includes same-sex clause in immigration plan

February 1, 2013

white-houseWhat people are talking about….

Here is what the White House said on Obama’s Immigration plan this week:

Keep Families Together. The proposal seeks to eliminate existing backlogs in the family-sponsored immigration system by recapturing unused visas and temporarily increasing annual visa numbers. The proposal also raises existing annual country caps from 7 percent to 15 percent for the family-sponsored immigration system. It also treats same-sex families as families by giving U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents the ability to seek a visa on the basis of a permanent relationship with a same-sex partner. The proposal also revises current unlawful presence bars and provides broader discretion to waive bars in cases of hardship.

Here is how the Catholic League responded:

On Monday, a bipartisan committee of U.S. senators offered a reasonable proposal to reform our immigration policy. Yesterday, President Obama, speaking in Las Vegas, outlined his ideas, and while they differed somewhat from the senatorial plan, they were not dramatically different. However, Obama’s speech did not include all that he is proposing: he made no mention of his decision to include homosexuals in his immigration proposal.

Yesterday, the White House released a “Fact Sheet” on the subject, “Fixing our Broken Immigration System so Everyone Plays by the Rules.” Toward the end of this statement is a section, “Keep Families Together” that includes the following sentence: “It [the proposal] also treats same-sex families as families by giving U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents the ability to seek a visa on the basis of a permanent relationship with a same-sex partner.”

In other words, homosexual unions are to be treated equal in status to naturally formed families. The term “permanent relationship” is, of course, shorthand for what the Obama administration seeks to redefine as gay “marriages.”

No institution has been more supportive of comprehensive immigration reform than the Catholic Church. But just as its support for universal healthcare was stymied by the Obama administration’s inclusion of abortion in ObamaCare, and the inclusion of abortion-inducing drugs in the HHS mandate, the Church’s support for immigration reform is now in jeopardy.

President Eisenhower made self deportation work.

3 Million self deported.

But to make self deportation work,or so we are told in the press, he had to do a very divisive,hateful,nativist,xenophobic, bigoted,white supremacist, racist, angry old white man thing…………which was…….. to enforce our immigration laws.
