Post-Election Miracles

Posted: November 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

One can only describe it as miraculous: Hard-liners are suddenly evolving in their understanding of immigration issues. No more line in the sand, get your bad ass back over the border. Huh.

People have been working on a reasonable and compassionate approach to immigration for years. It has been systematically blocked. I wonder why the new, great opening? Could it be the way Hispanics voted in the recent election? Maybe.

Or it’s just a miracle.

  1. The Bible denounces the oppression of the vulnerable (i.e., widows, orphans, strangers) over and over again. Psalm 94 1-7 is but one example The prophets are full of those indictments. But it was not that moral mandate that has gained the attention of some politicos (who were just recently only preoccupied with two moral issues, gay marriage and abortion). Their thinking is shifting not because of some reawakened moral awareness. No, it’s much more practical: Dang, we can’t treat ’em like crap and win elections.

    What a chuckle! I’d guess it was the Hispanic vote that produced a wake-up call….and that is a Miracle!

  3. I have realized that of all sorts of insurance, health insurance coverage is the most controversial because of the clash between the insurance plan company’s necessity to remain profitable and the client’s need to have insurance cover. Insurance companies’ profits on overall health plans are very low, thus some firms struggle to gain profits. Thanks for the thoughts you share through this web site.

    Barack Obama seems completely obsessed with systematically legalizing illegal immigration . The United States borders a failed narco-state that is one of the most crime-ridden nations on the entire planet, but Barack Obama refuses to secure the border and the consequences for the American people have been absolutely catastrophic. Right now it is already costing us tens of billions of dollars a year to provide welfare for illegal immigrants and to educate their children in our public schools. Right now illegal immigrants are already working millions of jobs that should belong to American workers. Right now Mexican drug cartels are already active in more than 1,000 U.S. cities. But apparently that is not good enough for Barack Obama. He wants to roll out the red carpet and give the green light to tens of millions more illegal immigrants. Last year, Obama issued a list of 19 factors for government officials to use when deciding whether to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deportation cases. In essence, under that new set of rules criminals and “ national security threats” were to be deported and virtually everyone else was to be allowed to stay. But now Barack Obama has taken things to a whole new level. Now, if you are under the age of 30, came to the United States under the age of 16 and have lived here for at least five years you will be able to apply for legal status and a work permit. With the election less than 6 months away it is obvious that Barack Obama is pandering for votes. But this kind of “banana republic politics” is only going to divide America even more deeply and is going to result in some very serious pain for this nation in the years ahead.
