Yeah, back to the video game.

It’s gonna be all immigration, all the time – up to the moment that there’s a riot in Missouri, or a political collapse in Louisiana, or something else. Got nothing really to say…

…but this just showed up in my timeline; and my, but isn’t it interesting.

Based on the polling I wouldn’t imagine that that the Democrats would be all that happy about this.

Remember the wisdom of our fathers: “Don’t get mad. Get EVEN.”

If you are extremely upset about tonight’s unexpected (and curiously circumscribed*) immigration speech by Barack Obama, may I suggest doing something practical about it?

So immigration activists really *are* going to go after Barack Obama over this.

Will wonders never cease.

The President apparently told Ms. Lopez to go yell at the Republicans. …Yeah, good luck with that one, Barack Obama. This is not a situation where Ms. Lopez – and the people who think as she does on immigration issues – needs to be persuaded to vote for the Democrat over the Republican. No, this is a situation where Ms. Lopez needs to be persuaded to vote at all.

You won’t believe what these immigration activists did at Kay Hagan’s campaign rally!

No, really.  You won’t believe it.

White House pretends that not trusting them on immigration is crazy-talk.

There are times when I don’t really get this administration’s messaging strategy.

The White House said Wednesday it was “crazy” to attempt to divine the president’s post-election plans for an immigration executive order based on a procurement request issued by the Department of Homeland Security.

“I mean, this is crazy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, adding he would caution reporters against “making assumptions” based on the “procurement of green paper.”

The proposal, unveiled earlier this week by Breitbart News, asks potential contractors to prepare for the possibility of producing up to 34 million green cards and work permits over the next five years.

I mean, let’s game this out. (more…)

Pro-illegal immigration activists go after… Hillary Clinton.

Well. That is certainly a thing.

Immigration activists disrupted a speech by Hillary Clinton on Tuesday evening at an event in New York City to benefit groups advocating on behalf of programs and legislation to support first responders and workers affected by the September 11th attacks.

After Clinton’s speech, the group of at least six young activists began chanting, “Undocumented! Unafraid!” Several of them wore t-shirts that said: “Will You Deport My Family.”

Honestly? She probably would. At least, these people’s specific families.  The woman knows how to hold a grudge.

Quote of the Day, Wasn’t Immigration Supposed to Require REPUBLICAN Damage Control edition?

I mean, I could have sworn

Democrats are in damage-control mode in the wake of the White House decision to postpone executive action on immigration until after November’s elections.

Immigrant rights advocates on and off Capitol Hill are up in arms over the delay, leading to Democratic concerns that the decision will alienate Hispanic and other immigrant voters — who tend to side with the Democrats — at the polls in November.

Well, now the Democrats know what happens when you let Barack Obama drive your strategy.  Which is to say, Chaos and Old Night.  I especially enjoyed watching Democratic politicians blame Barack Obama’s inability to keep his promise to act unilaterally (and quite imperially) with regard to immigration on… the Republican party, which is more or less simply a bemused spectator at this point. I don’t think it’s going to work this time, fellows.

Barack Obama chooses the worst possible partisan action on immigration issue.

I say this as a RiNO pro-amnesty squish: this decision is senseless.

Abandoning his pledge to act by the end of summer, President Barack Obama has decided to delay any executive action on immigration until after the November congressional elections, White House officials said.

The move instantly infuriated immigration advocates while offering relief to some vulnerable Democrats in tough Senate re-election contests.

…in no small part because it will not, in fact, give any relief to vulnerable Democrats (all of whom I want to see defeated at the polls, by the way).  The President has picked the worst possible solution, even if you assume that Barack Obama basic motivating principle is rank partisanship (which it is).  And here’s why: doing something out of rank partisanship implies that you expect to get something back.  But there’s nothing to get back, here.

Massachusetts sheriff squawks over Bristol County being used as illegal immigrant dumping ground

(H/T Instapundit) I honestly do not get what the administration thinks that it is doing, here.

Illegal immigrants are being secretly flown to Massachusetts and kept in local lockups in an under-the-radar operation that has alarmed lawmen who are raising health and security concerns amid recent spikes in detainees coming up from Texas during the latest border crisis.

“We’re all becoming border sheriffs now with these people being carted all over the country,” said Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson.

“The blame goes all the way up. It’s a travesty and people ought to be upset,” Hodgson said. “This is un-American and has raised the stakes to the public health and public safety threat.”

Opinions on immigration should not be pertinent to emergency mercy and charity.

I’m very much with Erick Erickson on this one:

Charity and mercy are Christian values. I look at the deep and hostile reaction to Glenn Beck’s effort of late to provide charity to the illegal immigrants at the border and I am shaking my head at some of my fellow Christians and fellow conservatives.

I do not think the government should be helping these people stay here. I do not think the government should be bussing them to other places. I do not think we should let these people stay here. But I think while here we should, in private charity, show mercy and give comfort where we can.

Democrats yelling at each other over immigration. :flatly: Such a shame. Really.

I would have loved to have heard this conversation:

The White House is finding itself increasingly on defense over deportations of undocumented immigrants, as key Democrats and a top immigration reform group have gone public this week with their desire for President Barack Obama to act.

National Council of La Raza President Janet Murguía called Obama the “deporter-in-chief” in a major speech Tuesday, leading to angry phone calls from senior White House officials — including adviser Valerie Jarrett — according to three people familiar with the calls.

Jarrett told Murguía that Obama was “very disappointed” with the statement, the sources said.
