ObamaItem: The Wall Street Journal for October 8 reported that President Obama is likely to scale back his legislative plans next year, citing immigration reform as an example. White House officials have indicated “a willingness to push through piecemeal changes to immigration law, instead of a comprehensive bill that combines border controls and immigration law enforcement with a path to citizenship for many of the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country.”

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director John Morton announced Wednesday “record-breaking immigration enforcement statistics achieved under the Obama administration.” Specifically, they crowed about an “unprecedented numbers of convicted criminal alien removals and overall alien removals in fiscal year 2010.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid indicated his intent to attach an amendment to a defense policy bill that would virtually lead to amnesty. At a capitol news conference on Tuesday, Reid said that the legislation, known as the DREAM ACT, has been delayed for far too long.

corridorA favorite Aesop’s fable is about an eagle. Perched on a lofty rock, he watched the movements of a hare, which he hoped to have for dinner. An archer, who saw the eagle from a place of concealment, took careful aim and mortally wounded him. The eagle gave one look at the arrow in his heart and saw in that single glance that the arrow was fletched with the eagle’s own feathers. “It is a double grief to me,” he exclaimed, “that I should perish by an arrow feathered from my own wings.” The moral of the story is that we often give our enemies the means to destroy us.
