‘You’re Not Going to Be Deported,’ Obama Assures ‘Ordinary’ Illegal Immigrants


obama1Speaking about his new immigration program in Nashville this week, President Obama assured “ordinary” illegal immigrants, “You’re not going to be deported,” even if they don’t register with the U.S. government.

“So even if somebody didn’t sign up, they’re still much less likely to be subject to deportation. That’s because we’ve changed our enforcement priorities, in a formal way,” Obama said.

Obama explained that the Homeland Security Department has set deportation priorities: “And at the top are criminals, people who pose a threat, and at the bottom are ordinary people who are otherwise law-abiding. And what we’re saying, essentially, is in that low-priority list, you won’t — you won’t be a priority for deportation. You’re not going to be deported. We’re not going to keep on separating families.”

Later, Obama said the same thing in different words: “The prioritization in terms of deportation, that applies to everybody, even if you don’t do anything” (register).

Nevertheless, Obama urged people with U.S.-citizen relatives to register with the government, submit themselves to a criminal background check and pay back taxes: “[A]nd if you do that, you’ll actually get a piece of paper that gives you an assurance that you can work and live here without fear of deportation.”

  1. Before we get too upset about the statement, let us first consider the source.

    This declaration comes from a man who promised, “If you like your health insurance you can keep it, we’re not gonna take it away from you.” And , “If you you like your doctor you”ll be able to keep you’re doctor, period.”.

    “I will sign a universal health-care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”

    “We reject sweeping claims of ‘inherent’ presidential power.”

    And now, “You’re not going to be deported.”

    Ho, hum. Another false assertion. What else is new?

    Oh, no, it’s not really a lie, just a misunderstanding. What our fearless leader meant to say was, “You’re not going to be deported, until you will be.”

    You get it now? By the way, is it any wonder why the allies of the United States remain unimpressed with our reassurances? If the President of the United States lies to his own people, why on earth should we assume he wouldn’t lie to the rest of the world?
