People who are in the United States illegally need to realize that President Barack Obama's immigration proposal [even if he is sincere] could a trap. People who identify themselves to the government could be the first to be deported if Republicans can get the courts to invalidate the plan or a Republican is elected president in 2016. Those who are living in the United States illegally need to "stay in the shadows" until they can be guaranteed amnesty if they "come out of the shadows".
President Obama may mean well with his proposal, but,
considering his recent security problems, illegal immigrants can't
be sure something bad won't happen to him before there is actual
approval of an amnesty plan. Considering how
passionately some people have been on the immigration issue, Obama's
action may increase the likelihood that some crackpot will try to
Another potential problem is that his unilateral action may
anger enough Congressional Republicans to reduce the potential for
There certainly will be one or more attempts to have the courts
invalidate the plan. With Republicans in control
of both houses of Congress there could be a revival of the birth
certificate issue that would force Obama to produce his real birth
certificate or at least a better forgery than the last
one. The last "birth certificate" Obama posted on line
was an obvious forgery because it listed his father's race as
"African". The word "African" cannot be used for race
because two different so called races live in Africa: a dark
skinned "race" south of the Sahara and a lighted skinned "race"
north of the Sahara that is considered "white". If
Republicans could proved Obama is qualified to be president than any
immigration proposal he made would be invalid.
A moratorium on deportation of otherwise law abiding immigrants is
appropriate while there is a possibility of immigration
reform. It would be unfair to deport some family just before
action that would allow them to remain here legally.
