Meanwhile, back at the ranch, whilst you were watching Syria and weren’t paying attention domestically — and without statutory authority:
A Plan B.
Immigration-reform activists aren’t supposed to talk publicly about a Plan B. They can’t, or won’t, answer questions from the media about what they will do if no bill passes this year to legalize the undocumented population. But as August wears on and there is no clear sense of what the House will do on immigration, some are starting to speak out.
“There are groups that are for immigration reform no matter what. Then there are groups like us, grassroots…. We have the other track,” said Adelina Nicholls, the executive director of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights. “The other track is Barack Obama.”
The idea behind the “other track” is to freeze the current undocumented population in place through an administrative order, give them work permits, and hope for a better deal under the next president, with the hope that he or she is a Democrat. It’s a significant gamble, but some advocates—particularly those outside of the Washington legislative bartering system—argue that it’s better than what they stand to see under the legislation being discussed now.
Many advocates have been discussing Plan B quietly for months, but they have kept a disciplined public message solely focused on supporting a comprehensive immigration bill in Congress. Even if they are uncomfortable with some of the bill’s provisions (like, say, excluding anyone who has been convicted of petty theft from legalization), advocates don’t want to appear fractured before a group of politicians who are wary about voting for anything that gives unauthorized immigrants legal status. As soon as reluctant lawmakers smell dissension in the ranks, they flee.
All Obama needs is “proof” that Congress can’t get the job done — then Obama reacts with an EO on his own, unilaterally.
Activists fear the border will be “militarized.” And that immigrants will be driven “underground.” Our sovereignty at literal risk, supported by foreign consulates. Dual citizenship, tri-citizenship. This is how you kill a nation.
Obama plans, by Executive Fiat, to legalize and normalize millions of Mexicans above and beyond the Dream Act. The Leftists will do anything to accomplish their objectives, and they are unceasing. If not by legislation, then by any manner in any fashion. They are beyond resolute. They are advocating “turning up the heat.” The proverbial “squeaky wheel,” ladies and gentlemen.
Do you find Republicans who are likewise resolute or unceasing or unaccepting of defeat? Who attack like steamrollers and piledrivers?
And who create websites like Mi Familia Vota, the sole goal of which is to bring as many illegal Mexicans into the United States as possible? Not the French, not Ethiopians, not Russians, not Canadians. Mexicans. Who speak Spanish. And who do not hail from Spain — though it was Spain that conquered the Indians of Mexico, which is why they speak Spanish today and not Tagalog.

IMMIGRANT RIGHTS LEADERS TRAVEL THE ROAD TO CITIZENSHIP: VOW NOT TO TAKE ‘NO’ FOR AN ANSWER
Obama’s Executive Fiat and a SCOTUS that supports it.
I ask: how can you say you “love your country” and truly hate your Constitution?
Your Constitution and Founding Fathers provided recourse. A convention for proposing amendments.
The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.
Perhaps a reference to Mark Levin’s The Liberty Amendments.
I submit that Mr Levin possesses a logical and sane alternative to the illogical and insane path our nation is currently taking.
Tell me: how many of you recognize our country from, say, thirty years ago?
Not in terms of melanin count, but in terms of logic, common sense, law, reality, proportion and rationality.
Don’t think Leftists don’t have a strategy:
Most activists for immigration reform have been so wrapped up in getting legislation through the Senate that they haven’t had time to look up and see what’s down the road. They are doing so now. “We’re saying, ‘What if? What are the next steps? If we come to a crossroads, what are the next strategies, the next talking points?’ ” said Lizette Escobedo, communications and development director for the Latino group Mi Familia Vota. “Our groups on the ground are seeing this as a new challenge. And when you get a new challenge, you just need to turn up the heat.”
What have you heard is the GOP‘s so-called “Plan B”?
