Obama Appoints Illegal Immigrant Czar

By: Rachel Pulaski

The Obama Administration has announced an “official advocate” for illegal immigrants.  His duties will include listening to the concerns the illegals have with our law enforcement policies.

 The Washington Times reported:

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the advocate will “serve as a point of contact for individuals, including those in immigration proceedings, NGOs and other community and advocacy groups, who have concerns, questions, recommendations or other issues they would like to raise.”  The agency — part of the Homeland Security Department — said Andrew Lorenz-Strait will be the first advocate.  But Rep. Lamar Smith, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said that meant elevating the concerns of illegal immigrants.  “It’s outrageous that the Obama administration has appointed a taxpayer-funded activist for illegal and criminal immigrants who are detained or ordered deported. The administration all too often acts more like a lobbying firm for illegal immigrants than as an advocate for the American people,” Mr. Smith, Texas Republican, said.  Mr. Smith said that when Congress created the Homeland Security Department, it specifically created an advocate’s position for those in the legal immigration process, but it declined to create one for illegal immigrants, who the courts have regularly ruled are not entitled to the same protections as citizens and legal residents.

This Administration may have a record number of deportations but they have issued a record number of “U” Visas to illegal immigrants. These visas provide illegals a path to legal and permanent residency.  U Visa holders also receive all benefits and protections normally available to refugees (including Refugee Cash and Medical Assistance, Federally-Funded Public Benefits, and Individual Development Accounts).

    An “official advocate” for illegal immigrants?

    You mean Obama hasn’t done enough himself?

    And all the ultra liberals / leftists in Congress have been doing more than their share.

    What the hell is this all about? Obie and his administration is beholden to the citizens and legal residents of the U.S., not some other country. (at least that’s how it’s supposed to work)

    will our prayers, “we the people” have free will and the power, of which
    we have been, and still are, slowly but surely surrendering to evil.. 🙁

    oh wait.. did i mention Amadjerkoff will gladly assist in
    bringing about the return of the Mahdi (Jesus, Messiah,
    etc)?? yep, so fasten your seat belts, because it’s going
    to be a bumpy rest of your life ride.. /truth sarc/

    And this office is part of Homeland Security Dept.? And who is it who runs the Homeland Security? Janet Napolitano who, standing right in front of a group of illegal Mexican aliens went along with Obama and Sen. Durbin in allowing part of the Dream Act to be activated so that those illegals who haven’t commited any crimes can stay in the country and be put on the fast track to citizenship wrongfully. And now we see Napolitano doing even more, and I’ll bet my socks that this is also part of the Dream Act that it probably says a “advocate” will be appointed by the President to advise illegals how to become citizen’s by stepping over our immigration laws, and more importantly the Constitution, which neither Obama, Durbin, nor Napolitano care nothing about.

    What Obama is doing is forcing a change in the issues that the Republican’s will have to address in the race for President. Obama is a usurper who is guilty of committing treason along with his strongest supporters in both Houses. The passing of the Military Authorization Act is part of this usurping of our Constitutional rights and freedoms. The allowance of the Occupy Wall Street criminal organization is part of Obama’s efforts to overthrow the country and his passing of this anti-Christian ruling in that all Christian organizations including it’s leadership in both civilian and military is an attack on Christian beliefs in how they regard the governments place towards our rights to practice our beliefs without government intervention by law. Obama doesn’t care about any of that.

    I believe that Obama needs to be overturned on this appointment. And I am going to contact my Congressman and tell him so, that this is going to far again where Obama believes that illegal Mexican aliens have rights that need protecting by the office of the President of the United States? That is insane!! Obama needs to be shut down and shut down right now!!!!

    An illegal immigrant czar…
    Did he appoint an illegal czar in charge of immigrants or czar in charge of illegal immigrants?
    Both i guess.

    I’m waiting for the official advocate for tax cheats.

    Also, under Cloward-Piven (look that up if you don’t know what that is. And it is a very dangerous thing that can and already has caused massive damage to this nation.) the whole object is to pile economic changes, and add to that the Communist Manifesto Obama is working right off of, as fast as possible in order that anyone who opposes these changes cannot ever catch up in order to stop the process. And Obama is doing exactly what he needs to do in order to cause as much damage as he can before he is throw out of office. He is getting a chuckle out of this as he watches us scampering around trying to put out as many fires as we can in order to keep down the damage before Obama does something else destructive.

    What will need to be done is Obama will have to be arrested to keep him from doing anymore damage to this nation. He cannot just be allowed to keep going at the pace he is making changes. At this rate there will be so much damage done that it will take years to reel back most of what he’s done and the new President won’t have time to do anything else for at least the first year of his Presidency. Well, I say if that’s the way Obama is going to play, then our President needs to just pick a year and from there start repealing Democrat law one after the other until he arrives at this year.

    If Obama can repeal, or whatever it’s called that the President does is called, the “Welfare Reform Act” at the stroke of a pen, then this new President can do that to with all the laws that Obama has made the first day he’s in office in order to turn this nation back away from the edge of the bottomless pit!!

    “What the hell is this all about? Obie and his administration is beholden to the citizens and legal residents of the U.S., not some other country. (at least that’s how it’s supposed to work)”

    Yeah, that’s how it’s supposed to work. But the current government hates us, and we are the enemy. And have said as much. Any way they can hurt us, they will.

    Legal American citizens have no rights. (At least, white ones don’t.) They are trying to get rid of any we still cling to. And they are succeeding.

    The goal is for us to be the “other” in our own country. To be the oppressed. That will make Obama and his ilk happy at last.

    And this isn’t limited to us. The income redistribution is supposed to be world-wide, and we are to be brought down enough notches so that we no longer matter, and are more in line with the poor of the world.

    Because, see, that is “fair.”

    I can’t think of anything this administration has done that helps us, but there are example after example of ways to hurt us. It’s basically suicidal.

    This in addition to simply bad-mouthing us.

    I blame the school system. Without their hand, none of this can succeed. They have taught our children to feel their country is bad, to feel guilt, and to feel they are bad.

    re: but it declined to create one for illegal immigrants, who
    the courts have regularly ruled are not entitled to the same
    protections as citizens and legal residents.

    you know where that’s headed, i mean,
    you can read between the lines, no??

    well, aside from “correcting” the negative flaws in the US Constitution,
    does what Holder did for the GITMO detainees ring any bells?? /sarc/

    AG Eric Holder’s Law Firm Represented 18 Gitmo Detainees
    After Volunteering to Give Them Free Legal Assistance,
    Filed Endless Lawsuits in US Courts…

    [(NRO)- Of all the infuriating aspects of the decision to transfer five 9/11 war criminals to civilian federal court, the one that grates most is the contention that the Obama administration is finally moving forward after “eight years of delay” — as Attorney General Eric Holder put it at his Friday press conference — during which the Bush administration managed to complete only three military-commission trials.

    This is chutzpah writ large. The principal reason there were so few military trials is the tireless campaign conducted by leftist lawyers to derail military tribunals by challenging them in the courts. Many of those lawyers are now working for the Obama Justice Department. That includes Holder, whose firm, Covington & Burling, volunteered its services to at least 18 of America’s enemies in lawsuits they brought against the American people. (During 2007 alone, Covington contributed more than 3,000 hours of free, top-flight legal assistance to our enemy detainees.)]

    This should be the first Czar eliminated by the next Republican president.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    It is really ironic that a communist like Obama would appoint a bunch of crooks, whom he calls “czars,” and for whom there are no checks or balances, and who answer to no one but the Imposter-in-Chief, himself.

    There are those who believe in pluralistic democracy, and then there those who do not, whether the latter are called Czars or Fascists, or Bolsheviks (like Obama) or “Democrats.”

  • porthuronpunk

    Can we please use the proper word concerning this administration’s “czars”. These people are commisars.

    Pundit this: wait until each illegal alien and their country of origin have to pay for the illegal use of this land, the U.S.A., AND these payments are made to American citizens (the collectively the class or group) who own this nation the U.S.A.. “Pay To Play” applies.
