Trey Gowdy: Why Didn’t Obama Do a ‘Damn Thing’ About Immigration When He Controlled Congress?

As the debate rages on over President Obama’s reportedly imminent announcement that he will grant “deferred action” (de facto amnesty) to upwards of 5 million illegal immigrants, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) appeared on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday to weigh in.

The outspoken Congressman, famous for cutting to the chase, nailed the critical argument against Obama’s pending executive action in one question:

“[F]rom 2008 to 2010, when he had the House, the Senate and the White House, he didn’t do a damn thing about immigration, so why can’t he give the Republican House and Senate three months, six month, nine months, to do what he wasn’t able to do in two years?”

Excellent question. On two counts:

1. Why didn’t Obama pass immigration reform during his first two years in office, particularly after having made a campaign promise to do so, during his first year? 

Obama vowed in 2008 to “put comprehensive immigration reform back on the nation’s agenda during my first year in office.” But shortly after being sworn in, he began to back off the promise, telling reporters over a year later that what while immigration “reform” was still a “serious concern,” “we’ve got a lot on our plate right now.”

Old Sarge, I agree.  I would love to see him run but how do we get him to do it?  By the way, thank you for your service.  I was there in 71 - 72 and am a retired Army Warrant Officer.

I am right there with you Old Sarge. This man is not afraid of doing what is right for our country. I have called his office and suggested that he think hard about throwing his hat in thr ring. I pray that he will do just that.


It wouldn't matter when or if action is taken by Obama, because his interpretation of immigration-reform is nothing but amnesty, as it will probably be if the Republicans take charge of the fiasco...this nation will never stop kissing Mexico's a$$, and the left will never stop defending an open-border.

The Council on Foreign Relations calls all the shots and they apparently decided that wasn't the best time to pursue immigration changes.

Obama has more on his plate than he knows !  He is about to reap what he has sewn in our country. The People have had enough of his B.S. and lies and will remove him from our White House.  We will remove him by the ankles if necessary. His time of terror is at an end !  He can play his race card all he wants. It has not been the color of his skin but has been the content of his character. He is a traitor to our country !


I just saw a video about Obama's husband Michael Lying about how obutthead has created 10 million jobs. It is the fried chicken racist video. Lying runs in that perverted family. I feel sorry for the two daughters growing up under two liars for parents.

I personally think this is a test run.  If he can suspend immigration law with no consequences, then he will follow it up with suspending election law to keep himself in power beyond 2016.

Very good point.

This question needs to be continually asked right up the the elections in 2016. The Democrat does that but the republicans don't know how to do a drum beat like they do. The are still beating the race drum and will never stop unless the blacks wake up and finally figure out that they are on the Democrats plantation still enslaved and voting for them and have received nothing but promises.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
