Republicans vow to undo Obama’s planned immigration orders

By Paul Henson

With President Obama’s announcement of his orders to fix America’s broken immigration system, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says it’s not a political victory, but a victory for millions of undocumented immigrants in America.

“It is not about Democrats versus Republicans, or Republicans versus the president. It is about families all across America worrying everyday about being torn apart,” said Sen. Harry Reid. “It is about saying to good, law abiding people, ‘you won’t have to spend another holiday season wondering if this will be your last together.’ It is about telling mothers and fathers, sons and daughters they are no longer relegated to the shadows in American society.”

But those words fell on deaf ears for top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell, who vows that Congress will undo Obama’s orders under the new Senate leadership.

“Let’s make no mistake,” said McConnell, “When the newly elected representatives of the people take their seats, they will act.”

Conservator Senator Tom Coburn warns of violence in reaction to Obama’s executive action.

“The country’s going to go nuts, because they’re going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it’s going to be a very serious situation,” said Cobum. “You’re going to see – hopefully not – but you could see instances of anarchy. … You could see violence.”

There are some 300,000 undocumented Filipinos in the United States.

Retired Filipino journalist and publisher George Nervez says undocumented kababayans have everything to gain from Obama’s action, despite whatever threats from Republicans.

“Everybody should be thrilled, especially the Filipino immigrant community,” said Nervez. “Finally, may lunas na dahil nasa front burner again.”

But retired San Francisco Clerk of Court Rene Pascual is concerned about the continuity of Obama’s immigration orders after he steps down from office.

“Although this is a welcome development, this is just an executive order,” said Pascqual. “What happens under the next president is a Republican or a Republican-controlled Congress.

    the tone of ruse reid is as usual the bleeding heart far out lefty, as if he and his donkey party are into family oriented belief, when in reality these socialists liberals are the strong supporter of single parent, that its okay without a father or a mother present, that its the new family trend. reid use of the importance of cohesive family supersede deportation of illegal aliens is his fattest lies. so the immigration law must be tailored for all these lawless illegal aliens is exactly what this fake reid is emphasizing, should disgust lawful people of america. people are not fooled by raid’s bullcraps. illegal aliens are not nomad, they all came from known to unknown countries, americans must question these a$$holes socialists, liberals, why they are into spitting lies of deporting illegal aliens is splitting families, its the illegal aliens themselves doing the splitting by embracing illegalities, that they all knew they all can get away by not getting apprehended, required of the immigration law. obozo, reid, pelosi, et al liberturd stance of not deporting these illegal aliens in order not to split families will entice more illegal aliens, especially pregnant illegal aliens who will hurriedly force herself to give birth in US soil she illegally crossed right in the line dividing the USA and mexico. this scheme are one of many tricks of illegal alien border crossers, successfully done intermittently. you all need to watch the flood of this type of scheme involving pregnant illegal aliens. the same when obozo did DACA, the flood of unaccompanied minor border crossers was out of control, a true calamity. obozo again is into a looming catastrophic illegal aliens action to enter the USA, without repercussion of deportation. obozo’s immigration plan is never good for the country, its only good for himself to treat his bruised ego after the mid term election, its only good for the donkey party to gain the votes of the hispanics. what a bad motive.
