According to a report by DHS, Barack Obama’s unconstitutional Administrative Amnesty for illegal immigrants who were (supposedly) brought here as children by their illegal alien parents could
"cost more than $585 million and require hiring hundreds of new federal employees to process more than 1 million anticipated requests, according to internal documents obtained by The Associated Press.”
[DHS: Deportation proposal could cost $585 million by Alicia A. Caldwell, Associated Press/AOL Huffington Post, July 24, 2012.
Compare the $465 fee—which most applicants will likely refuse to pay, or will get waived—versus the value of $225,000 that Randall Burns estimated American citizenship had in 2007. Obama is selling our patrimony for nothing.
The gap between the official estimates and reality may just be bigger than the Grand Canyon.
Politicians of both parties always wildly underestimate the dollar cost of their mischief, but when it comes to lying, Obama makes all the rest, including even Bill Clinton, look like a bunch of pikers.
Every major statement he has ever made, whether about himself or his planned policies has proved to be whopper (see list).
He even tells layers of lies.
In 2009, he told a primary lie on behalf of his first $787 billion stimulus bill, that it was for “shovel-ready projects.” Off the record, at the time, he told David Brooks a secondary lie, whereby he knew full well that he had no shovel-ready projects.
Had Obama wanted to, he could have funneled the money to local infrastructure projects to immediately do things like fixing potholes and painting bridges, through existing municipal departments.
But if the cases of Alabama and Louisiana reported by Occidental Dissent’s Hunter Wallace were typical, Obama was stealing the money from the overwhelmingly white tax base and giving it to blacks via welfare programs. And God only knows how much of the money, which has never had a public accounting, was simply stolen by local officials, Detroit-style.
So is this “1 million anticipated requests” for DREAMnesty, as Huffington Post says, or tens of millions?
Constitutional and federal law will necessarily turn the plan into an amnesty for all illegal aliens presently here.
As Federale has brilliantly pointed out, once Obama begins processing unconstitutionally amnestied Dreamers, any illegal alien not covered by said criminal process will sue for discrimination, and win.
I recall People’s Court Judge Marilyn Milian once informing a plaintiff that she could not rule on his behalf, in order to enforce a contract that was itself illegal. If Republicans do not stop Obama’s illegal Administrative Amnesty, the federal courts will do just that. They will rule that Obama may not illegally favor one group of illegal aliens over another: Two crimes make a right.
The rational thing for the federal courts to do would be to stop the illegal Administrative Amnesty, as well as its extension. But Obama has nullified the American legal system. He needed only the cowardice of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, and of the Republican Party leadership.
The sort of corruption that is endemic in such amnesty plans, as was the case in 1986, will cause millions of ineligibles to be served by it—which is the whole idea. This will be 1986 on steroids.
Officials will not scrutinize applicants, as to whether they qualify—or if they were even here last week. Indeed, the naturalization process is already completely corrupt.
Thus, there are millions of naturalized citizens who only became such through fraud, and thus should be stripped of their American citizenship, and returned to their homelands. There is a simple test to identify such people: Engage them in a conversation, on any topic, in English.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials have for years made a mockery of citizenship ceremonies. The officials, who are often themselves immigrants, ask applicants to speak only a couple of words of English, and give the citizenship test orally, so that there is no record as to whether the applicant properly answered any of the questions, let alone whether he could give them in English. The ceremony functions as a rubber stamp, and to spend hours signing up the new “citizens” for every welfare program under the sun.

In January 2005, Bear-Stearns analysts Betty Ng and Robert Justich estimated that there were already 20 million illegal aliens in the U.S., and that a net of 500,000 more making it into the interior every year. That would make 24 million, not counting several million anchor babies.
Unlike dubiously sourced federal figures, Justich and Ng used the methodology of measuring building starts for homes and schools, and wire transfers.) [The Underground Labor Force is Rising to the Surface by Robert Justich and Betty Ng, CFA, Bear Stearns, January 3, 2005.]
However, I believe that since then illegal immigration, especially from Mexico, has accelerated—due to narcoterrorism, which has crippled all government there.
Treason Lobby propagandists claim the opposite, that narcoterrorism has stopped emigration, and that more illegal immigration is now coming from China than from Mexico. Such claims beggar belief, and rely on no evidence.
The unconstitutional amnesty of illegal immigrants will invite tens of millions, and perhaps hundreds of millions, of new illegals to come from the entire Third World—but especially from Latin America.
And all amnestied illegals will be permitted to petition on behalf of their parents and other relatives (chain migration), real and fake, here and abroad, and no one will check to see if those relatives are real.
The aforementioned steps will eliminate America’s immigration laws and borders, and bring about a Trotskyite-style Permanent Revolution through amnesty.
$585 million… or countless trillions?
Additional costs that would be entailed by the unconstitutional administrative amnesty, should it prevail, include:
1. The dislocations of millions of native-born American citizens, who will be permanently closed out of the labor market by the new aliens;
2. The victims of amnestied immigrant violence; and
3. The spiraling costs of amnesty recipients who are a complete drag on the economy.
Said costs will make it impossible for the American economy ever to recover to first-world status.
In 2012, we began third straight fiscal year under Obama with a federal deficit of over $1 trillion.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) official (“U3”) unemployment rate is 8.3 percent. This measure was corrupted in 1994 by Bill Clinton, in order to fudge the unemployment numbers. However, BLS also has a broader “U6” figure, which the Main Stream Media rarely mention, and which includes what Shadow Government Statistics economist John Williams describes “short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work part-time because they cannot find full-time employment.” It is presently 15.0%.
Finally, Williams’ Shadow Government Statistics site shows, based on short- and long-term discouraged workers, that the combined unemployment/underemployment figure for July was 22.9%.
That may not be as high as the worst of the Great Depression (25%), but it is equal to or higher than the unemployment rate at times during that period. [Alternate Unemployment Charts by John Williams, Shadow Government Statistics, last updated August 3, 2012.]
What is the simplest and first thing to do during a severe economic crisis? Seal the borders to incoming aliens, and run illegals back through the Southern border.
Instead, Obama is inviting countless millions more to come.
By Obama’s inauguration, economists had already warned that Social Security and Medicaid were on life support, and would likely run out of funds during his second term.
Although America has seen its share of economically incompetent presidents, including George W. Bush, Obama is the first, to my knowledge, to deliberately seek to destroy the American economy by seeking to elect a new people.
When you are in a boat that is taking on water, you bail it out; Obama is deliberately bailing water into the ship of state.
He clearly does not believe that we are all in the same boat.
