Obama Amnesty Plan: Catch, Release, Vote

By Rush Limbaugh | June 15, 2012 | RushLimbaugh.com


RUSH:  I have a name for this new Obama immigration policy. In case you haven’t heard, folks, very quickly. The regime today told the border agents: “If you catch young illegals, let ’em go and grant ’em work permits.”  No more deportation of illegal immigrants.  They are to be given work permits and they can stay in the country.  So what this is is “Catch, Release, Vote.”

JOHNNY DONOVAN:  And now, from sunny south Florida, it’s Open Line Friday!

RUSH:  That is exactly what this is: Catch, Release, Vote.

You know what surprises me about this? He’s using up his political ammo pretty early here.  Now, I know he’s gonna go talk to La Raza or some Latino group next week, but I’m telling you what. If you had any doubt that people are paying attention, forget it.  They obviously are.  The president is in full panic mode.  He’s not keeping his powder dry until the fall.  He’s not. Why?  Because people are paying attention, and we don’t like what we are seeing or what we are getting from Obama.

First the churches, then women, then Bain Capital, then gays, and now this.  They’re just throwing everything up against the wall, hoping something’s gonna stick out there.  He’s getting killed in the media over this speech yesterday.  (We’ve got the audio sound bites.) I mean, he’s being literally reamed over the speech.  And I’ll tell you what’s coming next.  Here we go. We just went through the brief overview.  First, War on Churches.  Second, create (as part of it) a phony Republican War on Women. And then go after Mitt Romney and Bain Capital. Then come out for gay marriage.

And now: Don’t deport the young illegals; give ’em work permits.

What’s that gonna do to the unemployment number?  Are we gonna count ’em looking for work or not?  If we don’t, the number won’t drop. If we do, the number will go up.  What’s it gonna do for those of you trying to get work to learn that 800,000 new illegals are in the job market who will work cheaper than you do?  And what’s next is home mortgages and student loans.  Those are the next two things that are gonna fall. They’ll throw it all up against the wall. You watch.

Audio sound bites.  I warned everybody of this.  Let’s go back to July 30th, two years ago, almost.  Two years ago on this program, this is what said I…

RUSH ARCHIVE:  [T]he issue here is the dictatorial nature of this regime and Obama’s willingness to do anything to advance his agenda.  They’ve been caught.  They are looking at ways to grant amnesty en masse without legislation if they can’t get it done, and they’ve been caught. Memo’s been seen and now they say, “Oh, no, no, no! We would never do that. We would never.”  They’re looking at it … and if they could find a way to do it, if they can find a way to do it, who knows?  With this bunch you just don’t know. You have to assume, based on everything else we’ve seen ’em do, that they would do it.

RUSH:  We were talking there about a Washington Times story that reported on a memo that said the regime was looking at ways to do what they did today: Grant amnesty to young illegals.  And I warned everybody back on July 30th of 2010 that they would do it if they could figure out a way.  And the way they figured out is, “Well, it’s what Rubio wants to do!”  They’re just saying, “Hey, this is Marco Rubio’s plan. It’s bipartisan.  It’s the DREAM Act.”  Yeah, except the DREAM Act got defeated.  So Congress doesn’t matter.

This is what happens, folks, when you have statist, dictatorial types who are in full panic mode.  Who needs Congress?  I think even The Forehead once said that back when Clinton was president.  Clinton did stuff like this now and then. Nothing this drastic, but he did.  And The Forehead said, “This is really cool! Sign the paper, law of the land,” or something like that.  And I’m just telling you, it’s Catch, Release, Vote.  Use that, folks. That is the name of the program.  And, as I say, they’ll forgive student loans at some point if they have to in this campaign.

And they might even propose forgiving everybody’s underwater mortgage.  If they can do this and go against the will of Congress, they can pretty much do whatever they want to do.  Drudge has a headline up in big, red letters.  Let me check if it’s still up.  I don’t have the Drudge page up right now.  Yep.  “Who Needs Congress?  Obama to Grant Immunity to Young Illegals.”  He links to a piece from TheHill.com.  That headline says, “Obama Makes Election-Year Change in Deportation Policy.”

And that story begins by saying, “President Obama will sign an executive order Friday to significantly alter US immigration policy to reduce deportations of illegal immigrants who came to the country at a young age.” According to the AP, “Obama’s executive order could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came here illegally, not only to remain in the country without fear of being deported, but to work legally.”  So all those articles that we’ve been seeing about Obama being in trouble with the Hispanic vote must be showing up in the White House polls as well.

Now, this is pure desperation.  But in addition to this being pure desperation, this is what he wants to do and has wanted to do all along anyway.  The timing is what’s desperate, not that he’s doing it.  And what he’s counting on in every one of these proposals is the fact that his voters, basically life’s takers… I’m just gonna say it. He thinks that his voters, the takers, outnumber the Catholics. And the people who don’t like the whole notion of same-sex marriage. And who are opposed to ever-expanding entitlement programs. And now this.

He thinks that the black vote and the Hispanic vote and the feminist vote and all these other constituency groups are gonna add up to an electoral coalition over the rest of the country — which I’ll call, for the purposes of this discussion, “the producers.” That’s what he’s counting on.  We know that he’s written off white working-class families.  They’ve admitted that they’ve written that group off.  They’ve written off the Catholics.  I don’t know. How much more brazen does this guy have to be.  Does this help to put in context, “I hope he fails”?

Does this? You know, that was so needlessly controversial back on January 16th of 2009, when I said, “I hope Obama fails.” The controversy attaching to that was so unnecessary.  Bobby Jindal has an op-ed piece.  I don’t have it in front of me.  It’s in the Stack.  I don’t know where it ran.  But he was in Wisconsin.  And Bobby Jindal starts out by saying, “I saw it.  I was a witness at the scene of the crime.”  His observation, after being in Wisconsin for a while to help Scott Walker, was that the Democrat Party has been taken over by the radical left.

Now, you know that I love Bobby Jindal. And you know that I once suggested Bobby Jindal as a legitimate heir of Ronaldus Magnus.  My contention is: We all should have known this back in 2007 when Pelosi and Hoyer and Barney Frank and the rest of the crowd took over Congress. It’s been obvious that the Democrat Party has been taken over by the radical left for five years.  And it was building before that.  Now, I’m happy when anybody finally sees it and comes to the conclusion, but, folks…

And I not patting myself on the back.  Please don’t misunderstand me.  I’m frustrated.  All of this, everything Obama has done in 3-1/2 years was totally predictable.  Based on his ideology.  Based on who he is.  Now, as I say, I’m happy people finally figured it out. But it would have been a lot better if people would have admitted it to themselves 3-1/2 years ago instead of waiting around trying to be bipartisan, trying to be open-minded, trying to be fair and all that.  This has been serious from the get-go.  This has been drastically serious from day one.

And now we see the manifestation of all this.

It’s just… Well, as I say: I’m glad when people come to the obvious conclusion whenever they do.  It’s just frustrating.  It’s been out there for everybody to see that this is where we were headed. And this is where we have been headed and this is who the guy is. (interruption) Do I think it will work?  Snerdley wants to know if I think it’ll work. You mean help his reelection effort?  I think they’re throwing things up against the wall.  I think they’re in sheer, utter panic.  I think they’re spending all their political capital.
