Giving credit where credit is due, President Obama has significantly reduced the number of foreign nationals illegally crossing into the United States to live, work, and collect cash benefits. By destroying the economy of this nation, Obama has made it far less attractive to those who would flout our laws to make easy money in this former land of opportunity.* Because no one without political connections to The Regime still “Hopes” for money, easy or otherwise. And this former land of opportunity has surely “Changed” for the worse.
In fact, with a few more of Obama’s never-ending “jobs bills”, “stimulus bills”, “not-quite-shovel ready infrastructure bills”, “green energy corporate contributor payback bills”, and other slush funds for his fat cat crony socialist buddies, Americans may start flooding outbound to other countries in search of jobs.
But we have to credit him with slowing the influx of illegal foreigners. No president before managed that feat.
“American census figures analyzed by the nonpartisan Pew Hispanic Center also show that the illegal Mexican population in the United States has shrunk and that fewer than 100,000 illegal border-crossers and visa-violators from Mexico settled in the United States in 2010, down from about 525,000 annually from 2000 to 2004.”
