In 1908, Israel Zangwill wrote a play entitled “The Melting Pot.” The hero of the play proclaims; “America is God’s Crucible, the great Melting Pot where all the races of Europe are melting and reforming…Germans and Frenchmen, Irishmen and Englishmen, Jews and Russians-into the Crucible with you all! God is making the American.” When the play opened in Washington D.C. on October 5, 1909, former president Theodore Roosevelt leaned over the edge of his box and shouted, “That’s a great play, Mr. Zangwill, that’s a great play.”
Between 1890 and 1920 some 18 million new American citizens of mixed nationalities and ethnicities shared a common bond; God, family and love of their newly adopted country, America. There was a yearning to adopt the English language, wave the American flag, abide by the Constitution of the United States, and pursue the American Dream. When World War II broke out in 1941, these were the same immigrants who did not hesitate to enlist in the armed forces and were willing to protect and die for their cherished country. Unfortunately, the emphasis for many immigrants today is to maintain their own ethnic identity and in many cases racial hostility. Now many immigrants do not want to appear “too American” and political correctness has taken on an anti-American meaning.
Commander-in-Chef Barack Obama has been in control of America’s melting pot since 2008 and during those five years has attempted to alter some of it’s most essential ingredients including; the freedom of speech, the freedom of information, the freedom of religion and the right to bear arms. Chef Barack’s heavy handed, transformational use of Hellish hot sauce and Marxist spices, combined with his zeal to overload the pot with undocumented America haters, will eventually lead to a food poisoning so fatal that America will never recover.
The main Sous-Chef under Obama, the (DHS) otherwise known as the Department of Homeland “Sewage” has been aiding and abetting in the putrification process of the melting pot and in an act of treasonous defiance has been systematically adding to the rot. The mismanagement of the DHS security computer database which tracks who is eligible to enter the US is both shocking and alarming. DHS began modernizing the database in 2008 with plans to complete its upgrades by September 2015. The current PROGRAM to prevent terrorism and provide border security has been in use since the 1980’s and relies on “obsolete technology” that cannot “match names from foreign alphabets.” After spending $19 million, the upgrades to the system had to be scraped because it was riddled with IT problems. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has spent $226 million as of August 2013, but is currently revising its estimate to fix the broken system, and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is “re-planning” its $818 million, “having determined in June 2013 that the system under development was not technically viable and could not support ICE’s needs.”
But, why spend hundreds of millions updating an immigration database when DHS does intend to use it? In September 2012, DHS instituted a “lean and light” system of background checks, with only a few randomly selected applications being processed. Then on November 9, 2012, just three days after the re-election of Obama, the entire agency was told to “put all Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) or deferred deportation of illegals, on hold until further notice.” JUDICIAL WATCH received no other documents indicating how or when DHS resumed background checks-if at all. This in addition to former Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis actively urging unlawful immigrants to pursue employment, telling them that “federal laws are very clear and protect immigrants equally, whether or not they have papers.”
Adding to the already enormous White House immigrant legal pool, DHS recently hired a battalion of “specialized” immigration attorney’s who are working full time to oversee immigration litigation and enforce federal immigration laws. The new attorney’s have activist backgrounds with a variety of pro-amnesty groups such as the Mexican American Legal defense and Educational Fund, the Advancement Project, and open borders groups funded by the Tides Foundation (aka Soros) These lawyers were hired under unconventional means by former chief council for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services(USCIS) Stephen Legomsky, now a professor of law at Washington University in St. Louis, and who is known for his hostility toward having any borders. At this LINK, take a look at some of the radical activists Legomsky hired to help ensure a borderless America. They all hail from pro-amnesty and pro-asylum backgrounds and also worked with various pro-amnesty groups including the Tides Foundation (aka Soros)
The “kitchen help” in charge of making sure Obama’s melting pot boils over is his Director of Domestic Policy Council, CECILIA MUNOZ who was a former top lobbyist at the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) an Hispanic separatist/supremacist organization that advocates for blanket amnesty, open borders and the establishment of a separate area or state in the southwest, populated solely by Latino’s, free of Caucasians. The motto for La Raza, Spanish for “The Race,” is “For the Race, everything, outside the Race…Nothing!” and I am sure that Ms. Munoz thinks about this daily as she gazes at her framed cover of the Village Voice featuring the Statue of Liberty with a black eye and holding a banner that reads “Immigrants, Get Out!
According to its web site, La Raza views lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights as an important part of its civil rights work and works to file AMICUS BRIEFS that provide judges with legal viewpoints supporting same sex marriage. It is a great illustration of how millions of dollars of immigration reform funds, paid by the taxpayer, are being used to promote a counter-culture that is the antithesis of America’s conservative moral base. Another disturbing fact about La Raza activist Ms. Munoz is that she is married to AMIT A. PANDYA, a human rights attorney, a counselor at the Soros “Open Society Institute” and Chief of Staff at the International Labor Affairs Bureau of the US Department of Labor, a marriage made in anti-American, nepotism Heaven!
Chris Crane, head of the National ICE Council, the union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has stated that La Raza agents are embedded in ICE and setting their policies, many of which are now prohibiting the 20,000 employees from doing their jobs. In a stunning show of middle finger diplomacy, Obama once again invited illegal immigrants to his STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS and yet refuses to meet with ICE officers.” An angry and frustrated Crane said, “ICE officers are forced every day to release violent offenders back into the streets; we are prohibited from enforcing immigration violations and document fraud and from cracking down on illegal employment; we are prohibited from enforcing public charge law to protect taxpayers; and we are forced to catch-and-release illegal aliens who are not ‘priorities’ even when officers’ believe there is a threat to public safety”
So with all these government agencies and thousands of lawyers in control, how is US immigration faring? A recent audit of DHS by the Government Accountability Office found that the agency has lost track of more than 1 million foreign visitors who came here on temporary visas and cannot confirm they have actually left the United States.
Another report from the Center for Immigration studies has determined that the Obama administration released 68,000 illegal aliens with criminal convictions in 2013. More alarming is that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents (ICE) reported 722,000 encounters with illegal aliens in 2013, but only followed through with charges against 195,00 of them, or just 25%. According to ICE personnel, the releases occurred because of current administration policies that shield most illegal aliens from enforcement.
In 2013, every ICE field office reported a decline in interior enforcement activity, with the largest decline in the Atlanta field office, which covers Georgia and the Carolinas. This in spite of the fact that more than 870,000 ALIENS on its docket who have been ordered removed, remain in defiance of the law. Under Obama’s current policies, an alien’s family relationships, political considerations, attention from advocacy groups and other factors can trump even serious criminal convictions and result in the termination of a deportation case. About three-fourths of the aliens ICE detained had criminal and/or immigration convictions so serious that the detention was required by statute.
Could the poor tractability of criminals have anything to do with the fact that in NORTH CAROLINA in the month of February 2014 alone, there were 154 counts of child sex crimes brought against illegal aliens? Does the fact that the age of sexual consent throughout the majority of Mexico is only 12 years of age?
Finally, there is the chilling problem of terror-linked Muslim immigrants. Obama ordered the State Department and DHS to ignore a post 9/11 law barring entry to those giving political or charitable aid to Hamas and other known terrorist groups. He suggests that too many innocent Muslims seeking a better life here, including Palestinian “refugees,” have been “unfairly” excluded by Draconian post-9/11 immigration laws.
I wonder if Obama’s top terrorism adviser, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, JOHN BRENNAN, who developed relationships with the Saudi Government while working as station chief in Saudi Arabia in the 1990’s, and subsequently converted to Islam, truly cares.
Senator John McCain recently vowed to fight for amnesty and that if a comprehensive immigration reform passes, he would name it the Edward M Kennedy immigration bill. Kennedy famous for not bothering to rescue his drowning female companion is now running Hell’s kitchen for the federal government. Kennedy, who cannot wait for his long time immigration- in- crime buddy McCain to join him warns, “but leave the hot sauce at home!”
