Obama Aims to Bestow Citizenship on Everyone

President Barack Obama, fulfilling pledges he made to Hispanic groups in last year’s presidential campaign, is inviting members of Congress to the White House for a June 8 meeting to push through his plan for immigration reform. As a candidate, Obama said that comprehensive immigration legislation, including a plan to make legal status possible for an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants, would be a priority in his first year in office. Hispanics responded by turning out to vote for him in record numbers. Now, it appears, is the time for payback.

Immigration-reform advocates nationwide are organizing a series of events to launch the “Reform Immigration for America” campaign, a national effort to fix what these groups perceive to be a broken immigration system. A partial listing of these groups reads like a “Who’s Who” guide to American Socialists, labor unions, radicals and open-borders proponents: the AFL-CIO, the Agriculture Coalition for Immigration Reform, the Service Employees International Union, the National Council of La Raza, the NAACP, the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the National Immigration Forum have all said they are optimistic that Congress will pass an immigration-reform law in the coming months. These groups’ leaders are enthused by the prospect of “a new political reality” made up of “a united labor movement and a President committed to comprehensive reform.”

Should Obama succeed in passing this mass amnesty, the political payoff for the Democratic Party will be incalculable. These new “citizens” will be heavily dependent upon social services and will require huge amounts of federal and state assistance. And they will get it. In return, on Election Day the Democrats will draw yet closer to their goal of making the U.S. a one-party state.
