AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA:
President Barack Obama
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,
Washington, DC 20500
"More efficient, more fair, and more just" or easier to game and more open to fraud? Your executive order suspending deportations of illegal aliens under 31 years of age who were brought here before the age of 16 will apply to as many as 2 million people and will overwhelm DHS's ability to identify fraudulent applicants, including terrorists as well as criminals.
Your amnesty is akin to placing a dagger in the back of every one of the 20 million Americans who cannot find a full-time job. It makes it much more difficult for these Americans to find the jobs they desperately need and it increases the hardships they and their families face. It also hurts the many currently unemployed and underemployed legal immigrants and their families. How is this fulfilling the duties necessary of a President of the United States?
With this one action, you have let down millions upon millions of Americans who were depending on you for a better life. Instead of helping to give these Americans a chance at a better life, you have given illegal aliens a chance at a better life. Is this really the message you want to send the American people in the run up to the November elections?
You have rewarded those who have broken America's laws while punishing those who have not. Way to go.
I hope that some day you will become circumspect enough to take to heart the following words of President Calvin Coolidge, spoken when he was President of the Massachusetts State Senate:
"We need a broader, firmer, deeper faith in the people; A faith that men desire to do right, that the Commonwealth is founded upon a righteousness which will endure, a reconstructed faith that the final approval of the people is given not to demagogues, slavishly pandering to their selfishness, merchandising with the clamor of the hour, but to statesmen, ministering to their welfare, representing their deep, silent, abiding convictions."
Unable to comprehend your actions,
Mr. J. Bruce Gabriel
