WUSA 9 – Help Save Maryland Director, Brad Botwin in The News – Watch The Video – President’s order could help 200,000 local immigrants

Bruce Leshan, WUSA6:28 p.m. EST November 20, 2014

HYATTSVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) — Undocumented immigrants across the region are celebrating the president’s executive order while illegal immigration opponents are promising political payback.

Advocates estimate that there are half a million undocumented immigrants in Maryland, D.C. and Northern Virginia, and many of them are going to be listening carefully to President Obama’s speech.

From what we know so far, it looks like the executive order will grant about 40% of illegal immigrants legal status here in the United States. That’s 200,000 people.

Enriqueta Juares says after a dozen years of living in fear, the president’s order will finally offer her some relief. She says she doesn’t have words to describe how happy she is: “Yes, very, very happy.”

With two children, one born in the U.S., the cleaning woman at the Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor now dreams now of a much brighter future for her children. She hopes her daughter will be a doctor.

But the executive order is limited and President Obama is not expected to extend legal status to the parents of dreamers like 19-year-old college student Claudia Quinonez.

“I will be very upset,” the Montgomery College student said, almost crying. “It will be shame on him. Because we’ve been working very hard.”

Quinonez’s mother Rosemary brought her to the U.S. from Bolivia when she was 11-years-old.

“They work hard, my mom pays taxes, and she works because she wants me to have a better life.”

Gustavo Torres, executive director of the immigrant service and advocacy group CASA, says this is a huge victory, but immigrants want more.

“All of the actions we’ve engaged in for 20 years pay off right now. But it’s not a solution, I want to be very clear. We need to pass comprehensive immigration reform.”

Maryland anti-illegal immigration activist Brad Botwin agrees on the need for reform, but he says the reform that’s needed is tougher border enforcement and English only policies.

“I don’t need another five, six, seven million people competing with American citizens who really still can’t find work,” Botwin said.

The immigrant rights activists are planning to listen to the speech and will celebrate CASA in Hyattsville and down at Lafayette Park in front of the White House.

Brad Botwin says he won’t even watch. He’s having dinner at the Cuban Corner Restaurant in Rockville with some people he says have left Maryland because of the government policies.

Top Right News – You Won’t Believe What This Illegal Alien Mother of 7 Collected – For 20 YEARS (Video)

illegalalien1

by Brian Hayes | Top Right News

“Emperor Obama” (by his own definition), in his speech tonight selling his lawless executive amnesty for 5 million illegal aliens, assured Americans that every illegal “comes here to work” and “not for a handout.”

Then there is reality: the vast majority of illegal aliens are on welfare, and will be for life. And far from contributing to our society and economy, illegals depress wages, and the average illegal alien takes in$19,000 more in public benefits each year than they contribute in income, sales taxes and social security contributions combined.

Illegal immigration is literally bankrupting this nation. And this woman is Exhibit A.

Illegal alien and mother of seven, Florida resident Marita Nelson, receives $240 in food stamps, monthly medications, $700 in Social Security and a housing allowance. And she has been receiving government assistance for over 20 YEARS – ever since she illegally entered the U.S. by swimming the Rio Grande — which up to 290,000 illegals have done since January.

And even though she initially had a job, Nelson hasn’t worked a day in 17 years – but still collects her checks.

She celebrates it…and is on a crusade to get other illegals to sign up for as many programs as possible – which as you can see in the disgraceful video clip below, the Obama Administration is paying “recruiters” to sign up as many people as possible!

One more reminder of how you cannot believe anything Emperor Obama says about immigration.

The Hill – Hillary Clinton’s Support of Obama Speech on Illegal Immigration – Clinton hails Obama ‘for taking action’

Hillary Clinton praised President Obama on Thursday night for moving forward on immigration after he announced his executive actions on the hot-button issue.

Clinton, the Democratic front-runner for the 2016 presidential race, took to Twitter to thank Obama, moments after his speech from the White House.

“Thanks to POTUS for taking action on immigration in the face of inaction,” she tweeted. “Now let’s turn to permanent bipartisan reform. #ImmigrationAction.”Clinton had remained silent on the issue in recent days. But her allies were privately signaling that the former secretary of State would support Obama’s decision to take action after immigration reform failed to pass Congress.

If she does run for president, some political observers say Clinton will benefit from Obama’s executive actions because they will rally Hispanic voters at a time when Republicans have failed to draw them in.

Breitbart TV – Jimmy Carter – CARTER: OBAMA WAS RIGHT TO CIRCUMVENT CONGRESS ON IMMIGRATION

Friday on MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Daily,” former President Jimmy Carter said President Barack Obama was “right” to go around Congress and enact executive action amnesty.

 

Carter said, “I think he has tried every possible way to get Congress to pass a reasonable bill. The Senate on a bipartisan basis — they overwhelmingly supported the Senate version. I think President Obama worked as well as he can with the House of Representatives.”
