Gov’t Union: Obama’s Weak Immigration Policy Is Inviting An Attack Worse Than 9/11

President Barack Obama’s lax immigration policies are inviting another massive jihad attack similar to the 9/11 atrocity, says Kenneth Palinkas, president of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services employees’ union.

Obama’s deputies are “lessening the vetting of each and every alien who applies for permanent residency or citizenship in the U.S.,” Palinkas said in a statement Tuesday.


“By not scrutinizing each and every applicant to the fullest extent possible to ensure America’s security, we invite an even more catastrophic event than what occurred on 09/11/2001,” he said.

Obama’s rollback of security checks means that “it is more than likely that any attack from terrorists will come from within the borders of the U.S., and it is further likely that ISIS or Al Qaeda would try to launch these attacks by obtaining a visa or working with elements already here on visas,” he said.

Numerous legal immigrants have launched, or tried to launch, jihad attacks in the United States.

In April 2013, for example, two ethnic Chechen Muslim refugees detonated bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three victims. They also killed a cop as they fled.

This month, three more migrants were arrested in Brooklyn for planning jihad attacks in the United States.

“Our current immigration system leaves us vulnerable to terrorist threats and terrorism in general by providing entry avenues for people sworn to destroy America… We must remain diligent and not continue lessening our guard against extremists who seek to destroy this nation,” Palinkas said.

“We must not govern based on politically correct clichés about relaxed immigration that only serve to weaken the country.”

The statement was released shortly before Sen. Jeff Sessions held his first hearing on immigration issues at the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest on Tuesday.

Sessions is a major advocate for reduced immigration, and was recently bumped from the top slot in the Senate’s budget committee.

The hearing is about the administration’s management of the USCIS agency.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

Sanders sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew Friday identifying a number of executive actions he believes the IRS could take, without any input from Congress, that would close loopholes currently used by corporations. In the past, IRS lawyers have been hesitant to use executive actions to raise significant amounts of revenue, but that same calculation has change in other federal agencies since Obama became president.

Obama’s preferred option would be for Congress to pass a corporate tax hike that would fund liberal infrastructure projects like mass transit. But if Congress fails to do as Obama wishes, just as Congress has failed to pass the immigration reforms that Obama prefers, Obama could take actions unilaterally instead. This past November, for example, Obama gave work permits, Social Security Numbers, and drivers licenses to approximately 4 million illegal immigrants.

Those immigration actions, according to the Congressional Budget Office, will raise federal deficits by $8.8 billion over the next ten years.

House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio) announced that the House will vote on a clean Department of Homeland Security funding bill, which marks the conclusion of the Republican attempt to block funding for President Obama’s executive amnesty orders. Boehner told the Republican conference that the bill will get a vote on Tuesday. “He said Pelosi could [force a vote] but he hoped it would be done by a GOP appropriator,” a Republican congressman in the meeting tells National Review Online.  The GOP lawmaker is referring to a little-known rule, known as Rule 22, that allows any House member to force a vote on a bill if the Senate refuses to create a conference committee. Senate Democrats filibustered the creation of a conference committee on Monday evening, thwarting the process by which the House and Senate might have ironed out the differences between the DHS appropriations bills passed by the two chambers. The original House bill blocked funding for the implementation of Obama’s 2012 and 2014 executive orders on immigration. The Senate bill did not block funding for the president’s amnesty. In Tuesday morning’s conference meeting, House majority leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) reiterated his belief that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) should have used the nuclear option to eliminate the filibuster in response to the Democratic votes to block debate on the House-passed DHS bill.

UK’s ‘Soft-Touch’ Immigration Policy Costs Taxpayers Over $1 Million a Day

Screen Shot 2015-03-03 at 11.33.23 AM

The cost associated with the British government’s immigration policy has come under fire after it was revealed that taxpayers are paying over one millions dollars (£726,000) a day to house and feed asylum seekers.

Critics of the government’s approach to immigration claim the current system is broken, with refugee processing times contributing to the additional cost to the taxpayer.

The figures, revealed through a Freedom of Information request by the Scottish Express newspaper, show that the cost of housing asylum seekers, along with other basic expenses for 2013-2014 was £265 million, which equates to more than £700,000 per day.

Meanwhile since 2010, £1.2 billion has been spent on accommodation costs for refugees while their claims are being processed.

Critics argue this money could have paid for 58,000 extra nurses, 52,000 teachers or 47,500 police officers, while others have pointed out that costs associated with asylum seekers is actually higher, as the Home Office figures didn’t include health care, school or legal aid costs.

Screen Shot 2015-03-03 at 11.36.12 AM

UKIP MEP Steven Woolfe was quoted as saying that the figures showed Britain had a “soft-touch” immigration policy:

“Instead of wasting more than £700,000 a day keeping claimants here we should use the money to abolish the bedroom tax or reduce the huge national debt.”

Immigration minister James Brokenshire described the statistics as “disappointing” and said the government was working to cut down costs associated with refugee claims.

“We are building a system that is fair to British citizens and legitimate migrants and tough on those who abuse the system or flout the law but we know there is much more to do.”

Advocates of strengthening Britain’s immigration intake say that the UK’s seemingly generous benefit system for those who have entered the country has led to an increase in refugees and in turn, has contributed to an increase in cost.

‘Put the Figures in Perspective’

Immigration critics have pointed out that the UK receives three asylum seeker applications an hour, however refugee advocates say these comparisons can be misleading.

In 2013, the number of people applying for asylum in the UK was 29,875, far below the record of 103,081 in 2002.

Refugee advocate group, the Refugee Council, says asylum seekers aren’t swamping Britain as much as some politicians and elements of the media make it out to be, with UN figures showing that the UK receives a fairly low level of asylum seeker applications compared to other countries.

Germany had the highest number of asylum seeker applications in 2013 with more than 109,000, followed by other countries such as the US (84,000), South Africa (70,000) and France (60,000), while the UK received 23,000 applications.

The number of refugees, people with pending asylum seeker cases and stateless persons in Britain is less than 150,000 — 0.23 percent of the country’s population.

These figures go against the assumption that the UK is considered the most desirable place to live for many asylum seekers.

Refugee Council head of advocacy Dr. Lisa Doyle said: “It’s important to put these figures into perspective: this money provides shelter and basic food for a small number of the world’s most desperate people.

“Asylum seekers are ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. They have been forced to flee their home countries and have often survived trauma that’s difficult for most of us to understand. They have lost everything and are in need of our protection.”

Additionally, Britain was criticised in Amnesty International’s annual report into human rights, with the report stating that out of the 4 million Syrian refugees forced to leave their country due to ongoing conflict, only 500 places had been offered by Britain, and only 90 Syrians had been resettled so far.

“Considering the world is in the grip of the greatest refugee crisis since the Second World War, the numbers of people seeking safety in Britain over the past few years has remained fairly static; we’re home to less than 1% of the world’s refugees. Over 86% of the world’s refugees are hosted by developing countries,” says Dr. Doyle.

“It would be inhumane not to offer the appropriate compassion and humanity to the low number of people who come to our shores seeking protection.”

IRS defends paying refunds to illegals who never filed taxes

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 6.28.15 PM

By Stephen Dinan – The Washington Times – Monday, March 2, 2015

The IRS is defending its decision to let illegal immigrants claim up to three years’ refunds on income even if they never paid income taxes, telling Congress in a new letter last week that agency lawyers have concluded getting a Social Security number triggers the ability to go back and ask for previous refunds.

President Obama’s new deportation amnesty could grant Social Security numbers to as many as 4 million illegal immigrants, making many of them eligible for tax refunds under the Earned Income Tax Credit even for years when they cheated on their taxes, working off the books and refusing to file tax returns.

“Section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code requires an SSN on the return, but a taxpayer claiming the EITC is not required to have an SSN before the close of the year for which the EITC is claimed,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen wrote in his letter to Sen. Charles E. Grassley on Wednesday.

The IRS’s chief lawyer had reached that conclusion in 2000, and the agency has newly confirmed it, Mr. Koskinen said.

Mr. Grassley said that made a mockery of the law, and said he’ll try to write a bill specifically prohibiting it.

“The tax code shouldn’t reward those who broke our immigration laws,” the Iowa Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement.

The tax issue has become one of several flash points over Mr. Obama’s deportation amnesty, which grants tentative legal status, Social Security numbers and work permits to illegal immigrants who qualify. The newly legalized workers would also likely be eligible for driver’s licenses, and could even be more attractive than native-born workers to some employers trying to figure out ways to save money under Obamacare mandates.

Mr. Koskinen has previously said that illegal immigrants must be able to prove they worked off-the-books in order to claim the EITC, and it’s unclear how many of the population Mr. Obama is aiming to cover would be able to offer such proof.

The three-year time frame is part of general tax law, allowing anyone who didn’t file to go back and claim a refund for up to three previous year’s worth of taxes.

But the IRS lawyer’s ruling creates an odd circumstance where illegal immigrants who cheated by not paying taxes before can see if they would benefit from refunds. If they do benefit, they could file, but if they don’t benefit they could continue to avoid taxes for those years.

Mr. Obama’s new amnesty program does not require payment of back-taxes.

Criminal Administration: Now Obama Claiming He’ll Raise Taxes By Executive Order

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 11.49.19 AMPresident Obama really does think he is a king or an emperor of some type. Now he claims that he is going to use executive orders to raise taxes on us all.

This arrogant prince thinks he can do anything he wants just by his say-so. No act of Congress needed.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unilateral executive action.

“The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,” Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action.

“Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,” Earnest continued. “But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,” Earnest finished.

The unlawfulness and arrogance of this man is incredible.

Who needs the Constitution, eh?

Democrats suck. Black Democrats REALLY suck. Remember when Democrats booed God and Israel at the DNC in 2012? That was a sickening display but what do you expect from a bunch of brain dead LIBERALS?

Now the Black Caucus Democrats are planning to disrupt Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to congress where he is trying to open the eyes of the world to the EXTREME threat that IRAN poses. Will they do the ‘HAND’S UP, DON’T SHOOT’ garbage or will they come stare and yell about slavery while he sits down to eat? God only knows…

After extensive communications with Obama the black’s plan on doing a protest during Mr. Netanyahu’s speech to the Senate by walking out while he speaks. You know what? Get the hell out then- we don’t need you Obama kissing a$$es there anyways! It’s not like you will back anything but ILLEGAL ALIENS and FOOD STAMPS for the poor blacks that are being discriminated against by our WHITE PRIVILEGED country! Oh you have it so bad! Let me break out the world’s smallest violin.

Take a hike- I’m sick of your whining.

But, there are tons of blacks that disagree with all the stupid crap that these agitators are doing including a group of Conservative black ministers that support M. Netanyahu.

Urban Cure reports:

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will address a joint session of congress on March 3rd, and in a political move, leaders of the Congressional Black Caucus are planning to skip the speech in protest of Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to Netanyahu to do so. While the Congressional Black Caucus claims it has “consistently been the voice for people of color,” it seems this brazenly political move couldn’t be further from the voice of black Christians in America.

The Center for Urban Renewal and Education and leaders of the black Christian community will come together to voice their support for Israel and welcome Prime Minister Netanyahu as he addresses Congress. A press conference will be held at the National Press Club on Thursday, February 26, 2015 to address these concerns.

WHO: Star Parker, Founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, Black Ministers from Across the Country
WHAT: Press Conference
WHERE: National Press Club, Zenger Room, 529 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20045
WHEN: Thursday, February 26, 2015 at 10:00 AM ET

“Israel has had to fight for survival in the Middle East every single day since its founding,” said Star Parker, Founder & President of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education. “The same forces that continue to threaten Israel today threaten America and the very Judeo-Christian values which link our nations. These biblical values defined the Civil Rights movement and Dr. King was an outspoken supporter of Israel. Jews were major supporters and partners in the Civil Rights movement since the founding of the NAACP. The Congressional Black Caucus undermines America, Israel, and our common Judeo-Christian heritage by turning their backs on the Israeli Prime Minister in a time of danger. We must hear the Prime Minister and show him black Christians, and all Americans, welcome him.”
