Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Will he or won’t he?

Update April 28th:  Good op-ed here on the Arizona law. Author suggests to counter boycott of Arizona that everyone who supports the law should visit or spend money in Arizona.

In light of the measure signed into law in Arizona yesterday which allows police officers in that state to arrest illegal aliens, President Obama seems on the verge of pushing the on-again-off-again amnesty legislation this year. 

From Reuters:

WASHINGTON, April 23 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama on Friday warned that without federal immigration reform the door would be open to “misguided efforts” such as a new Arizona law that has raised questions of civil rights.

Obama pressed for immigration reform at a White House Rose Garden ceremony in which 24 members of the U.S. military originally from China, Mexico, Ethiopia and other countries became American citizens.

“Today we celebrate the very essence of the country that we all love — an America where so many of our forbearers came from someplace else,” said Obama, whose father was Kenyan.

“And so on a day like this, we are also reminded of how we must remain both a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws,” he said. “This includes fixing America’s broken immigration system.”

Just hours after Obama singled out the Arizona measure as threatening “to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans,” the state’s Republican Governor Jan Brewer signed into effect the toughest immigration law in the United States.

Meanwhile, Gateway Pundit tells us that by a large majority Arizona voters approve of the strong measure.

To our critics who wonder what this has to do with legal refugees, here is my answer.  All of the federal contractors whose job it is to resettle refugees and find them homes and jobs are busy lobbying for so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform (and were involved in the recent open borders march).  Are they also using our tax dollars earmarked for refugee resettlement for their politcal activities?

And, would someone please explain to me how giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens will help legal refugees find jobs.

Update:  Here we go!  A bunch of agencies that have federal contracts to take care of refugees are blasting the Arizona law that is all about coming into the country ILLEGALLY.   I don’t know why they don’t focus on taking good care of their legal refugees! The only thing I can figure is that they figure if millions are legalized overnight they will be getting more of your tax dollars for programs for the newly legalized.  I’m sorry to say, that old axiom—follow the money—seems to apply here too!
