Obama Co-Opts Independence Day

Trans-Day-590-LIIndependence Day is for celebrating the freedoms so many have fought to defend, but today, President Obama is co-opting  it to promote his own agenda.

President Barack Obama plans to highlight a positive side of the immigration debate by presiding over an Independence Day citizenship ceremony for service members who signed up to defend the U.S. even though they weren’t American citizens.

The idea of show casing the successes of legal immigrants in order to push for amnesty are hypocritical at best and political show boating at worst.

The service members receiving citizenship all went through the proper process. Legal immigration and naturalization. Obama seeks to reward millions of illegal immigrants with the same status without all the trouble of doing it right.

Disregard for the nation’s laws is and should be grounds for rejection of a request for citizenship.

Efforts on immigration reform should be centered on streamlining. Make the process faster and easier so that those that wish to legally immigrate to the United States can do so with less frustration. Allowing millions to jump ahead of those that have been lawfully following the existing process is not the answer.

  1. Even a true Machiavelian on steroids can’t match this “Odessey of Id” oozing from Obama. He has learned that “if you don’t like it, change it”. He certainly ahows no sign of ‘liking’ what the United States stands for & regards ‘we the people’ as ants at his picnic. To be ‘happy'[ he must destroy and change….Trying to tie this this inspiring ceremony together with criminal activity puts his IQ out there for all to see. (if they’d only open their eyes)

    Unlike Michelle, I’ve ALWAYS been proud of my Country….it’s the egotistical incompetent she’s married to that’s the disgrace & shame.

    Tear down the morale, disassemble the military, create dependency and crash the economy and you have a ‘kingdom’ to call your own….& I honestly think he believes that’s what he wants….that scares me, big time!

    These “new” Americans are the caliber of people that will keep us a sovereign nation
