A showdown worthy of High Noon may erupt over immigration if Obama, as anticipated, decrees amnesty for millions of illegal aliens via executive order. Republicans would decry the sheer lawlessness of Obama’s brazen unilateralism in a nation of equal and divided powers, not least Congress’s explicit constitutional mandate to write laws and Obama’s utter absence of authority to do so. Conservatives, and many moderates, fret about the fiscal and sociocultural impact of a wide-open southern boundary practically decorated with a 1,989-mile-long “Welcome!” sign. Thus the oft-heard demand for border security as Step One in immigration reform.
Concerns about health, education, and welfare notwithstanding, there are serious national-security reasons for immediately clamping down on the U.S.-Mexican “border.” It has devolved into a people-mover for illegal immigrants from certified terrorist states and other nations filled with zealots eager to kill Americans.
According to recently released data from U.S. Customs…

After the election of Barack Hussein Obama as president the first time around, leftists would repeatedly tell conservatives that elections have consequences. Now this message goes back to the left. After a stunning repudiation of Obama’s big government policies, the GOP and conservatives have a mandate. Now that the House and Senate are in Republican hands, the work begins.
While Obama may intend to go ahead in granting executive amnesty to illegal immigrants, the GOP should do everything in their political power to stop this lawlessness. Many will argue that amnesty will help conservatives win over the Hispanic vote, but this is an unsubstantiated claim. In fact, many American working class people, even those known as Reagan Democrats, would be negatively impacted by amnesty. If the GOP can get the Reagan Democrat vote, that would help them greatly.
Furthermore, amnesty would just grant the Democrats more voters. Many of the illegals from countries…

After the election of Barack Hussein Obama as president the first time around leftists would repeatedly tell conservatives that elections have consequences. Now this message goes to the left. After a stunning repudiation of the big government leftist policies of Obama and co the GOP and conservatives specifically have a mandate. Now that the house and senate are in republican hands the work begins.
While Obama may intend to go ahead in granting executive amnesty to illegal immigrants the GOP should do everything in their political power to stop this lawlessness. Many will argue that amnesty will help conservatives win over the Hispanic vote but this is an unsubstanstiated claim. In fact many American working class people even those known as Reagan Democrats would be negatively impacted by amnesty. If the GOP can get the Reagan Democrat vote that would help them greatly. Furthermore amnesty would just grant the democrats more voters. Many of the illegals from countries primiraly in Latin America as well as some from the Middle Easr would be democratic voters and thus enabling a permanent majority for the left. More importantly caving on immigration would set a dangerous precident and lead possibly to more flow of illegals flooding into America without citizenship thus enabling potential terrorists to come across the border as well. Open borders are a danger to the sovereignty of the USA and should be opposed by the new GOP majority.
On Iran Sanctions should be reinstituted despite Obamas opposition. Iran remains a major sponser of worldwide jihad movements. Theirs is the Sharia ideology of totaleterianism. Allowing a Islamist regime bent on defeat of western civilization to possess nukes would be a horrible mistake. Despit leftist desire to appease the Islamic regime of Iran the republicans should be sure to install sanctions and oppose deals which allow Iran the potential to build nukes.
Finally the effort to defund and defeat Obamacare must be continued. It has already proven to be a failed system and an expansion of big government along with wasteful spending.
This victory for the GOP should lead to meaningfull action by the house and senate to oppose the Obama policies and stand on conservative principles. The GOP now has a chance it’s time to seize the moment.
