GOP re­sponse lack­ing to green-card give­away

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Ebola, the In­ter­nal Rev­enue Ser­vice, Beng­hazi, un­fet­tered il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion — the list goes on and on. While Rome burns, the politi­cians see no evil, hear no evil and speak not a word against the evil be­ing foisted on the cit­i­zens of the United States by an ide­o­log­i­cally bank­rupt pres­i­dent and his cor­rupt Demo­cratic Party (“Green cards on the ta­ble,” Web, Oct. 20).

Our bro­ken po­lit­i­cal sys­tem of nev­erend­ing con­gres­sional re­cesses and cam­paign ab­sences leaves the coun­try ripe for con­tin­ued abuse by un­elected po­lit­i­cal bu­reau­crats who in re­cent years have not once had the best in­ter­ests of the Amer­i­can peo­ple as their core mis­sion. In­stead, they have served and con­tinue to serve an elected pup­pet who seeks out only the in­ter­ests of his cam­paign donors, much like a CEO march­ing to the de­mands of his in­vestors.

Amer­ica is doomed, as one­time Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev pre­dicted — not from a for­eign en­emy, but from within, by cor­rupt po­lit­i­cal forces that have be­guiled and hood­winked a gullible, com­pli­ant and mostly silent cit­i­zenry.

With Congress in yet another re­cess, we learn that Pres­i­dent Obama plans to re­plen­ish the stock of re­li­able “vic­tims” on whom the Democrats rely so heav­ily for their hold on power. They will bring tens of thou­sands of Haitians to the United States and give them green cards (with cit­i­zen­ship almost as­sured). Fur­ther we’ve learned the ad­min­is­tra­tion is send­ing out a draft so­lic­i­ta­tion no­tice for the win­ning bid­der to man­u­fac­ture up to nine mil­lion green cards by May 2015 in yet another end-run around the Con­sti­tu­tion, the rule of law and the will of the peo­ple.

Re­mem­ber all those non-Amer­i­can “vis­i­tors” that over­stayed their tourist, work or ed­u­ca­tional visas, as well as the il­le­gal hordes that have con­tin­u­ously in­vaded this coun­try? They’re about to come out of “the shad­ows,” cour­tesy of Mr. Obama’s ex­ec­u­tive or­der. Where, might you ask, are Speaker of the House John A. Boehner and the Repub­li­cans? Cam­paign­ing, of course, mak­ing be­lieve they have a plan.
