Sheriff Babeu made a comment that might have been lost on the casual observer but brought what's left of my alleged brain to its feet.
According to the Sheriff, Obama's immigration executive power grab will cover illegals who have been here for 5 years or more.
Sheriff Babeu, Joe Arpio in Maricopa County and many other law enforcement officials out there have a long and frustrating history with fedzilla that goes like this: Deputies stop and detain suspected illegals. Suspected illegals produce documents indicating they have lived here for 5+ years. Deputies contact Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to report said illegals. ICE asks if illegals presented documents indicating 5 years of residency here. Deputy responds that they did. ICE tells deputies to treat illegals as they would AMERICAN CITIZENS! If no instant crime suspected or observed, the deputies are required to RELEASE the ILLEGALS. Do these overburdened law enforcement organizations have the resources or manpower to VERIFY the authenticity of these documents? I think you know the answer to that one!
When O'Reilly asked Babeu if his officers were presented "forged" documents in these encounters, the Sheriff laughed and responded "All the time". The typically cunning and sinister nature of Obama's unconstitutional, Cloward-Piven inspired action becomes obvious.
Obama's immigration amnesty OSTENSIBLY covers only 4 to 5 million of the 11 to 20 million illegals now in the U.S.! That leaves approximately 6 to 16 million requiring DOCUMENTS necessary to "prove" their 5+ year residency. If you know your way around PhotoShop or similar software (and don't give a damn that your actions would lead to the final destruction of the country!) at between $50 to $100 each, YOU could get rich producing phony lease/rental agreements, utility bills or other documents! Do the math: At an average of, say, $75 each, 16 million forged documents means there's around
$1.2 BILLION to be made!
BOTTOM LINE: Obama and his like-minded minions in government have effectively "legalized" all 20 million ++ illegals. Because he is doing NADA to secure the border, the ++ is to cover the millions more who will be coming in to line up at the fraudulent document production operations their friends already here will direct them to.
