Valerie Jarrett: Obamacare and Immigration Reform will bring fundamental change to America

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 28, 2013

Editors note:  I posted this today at Potomac Tea Party Report and have slightly modified the introduction.

We know how detrimental these two laws (of course one is not yet a law) will be to America, so how come the ruling class Republicans don’t get it!

At Potomac Tea Party Report I’ve called Jarrett the “Rasputin” of the Obama Administration and have many posts, click here, on who she is and how she operates.

Valerie ‘Rasputin’ Jarrett: Obamacare and Immigration Reform will be OUR crowning achievements!

We haven’t heard much from her lately.  There was some speculation that she was calling the shots that terrible night in Benghazi and so she has been hiding out ever since.

Here she is front and center making it very clear that ‘Comprehensive immigration reform’ is an Obama plan (so hey, McCain, Graham, Rubio, Ryan and Boehner why hand him this victory?).

From the Daily Caller:

Valerie Jarrett, one of President Barack Obama’s top deputies, said Tuesday that immigration reform would be as important to the country’s future as Obamacare.

“It will be a landmark piece of legislation,” she told a videotaped meeting of progressive allies in a building alongside the White House.

“Together with the Affordable Care Act — two major pieces of legislation — that when we look back 50 years from now, I think we will all just be extremely proud,” said Jarrett.

Jarrett’s close relationship to Obama was underlined by her repeated use of the first-person plural. “We are confident that with everybody making [immigration] a priority, it will in fact pass, and we will sign it into law,” she said.

Jarrett’s pairing of Obamacare and immigration echoes her critics, who say the immigration rewrite is an effort by Democrats to gain political supremacy by adding tens of millions of Democrat-leaning immigrants to election rolls after 2020.

“Politically, pairing them in her mind suggests that the administration sees both pieces of administration as transformative,” said Mark Krikorian, a noted critic of immigration and the director of the Center for Immigration Studies.

It is fundamental transformation alright!

Obamacare and increased immigration are “ways of fundamentally changing the United States so that it will not be like our country before Obama was elected, which has always been his goal,” he said.

So Paul Ryan and others, what the hell are you thinking!

The Daily Caller continued:

Jarrett’s pairing of the two bills also contradicts efforts by Republicans to focus the GOP’s base on the existing Obamacare law, and to divert the base away from the closed-door, bipartisan efforts to pass an immigration rewrite, Krikorian said.

“Without realizing it [Jarrett] is probably doing a favor to opponents of amnesty because [Rep.] Paul Ryan and other other Republicans are trying to distract attention from immigration by focusing attention on Obamacare,” said Krikorian.

“Valerie is bringing everyone back to the connection of the two,” Krikorian said.

Go to all of our coverage of S.744, here, to see how the new “comprehensive” immigration bill will increase the number of refugees/asylees in the US and how the contractors will be raking in the taxpayer cash.

    The other day I mentioned that many Mesketian/Ahiska Turkish refugees have been settling in Dayton, Ohio. They are keeping the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force busy.

    Agents of the JTTF arrested Muzaffar Mirsoliyev, 28, and his 51-year-old father, Mustafo Mirsoliyev. Both are Turkish immigrants who were refugees from Uzbekistan in the mid-2000s – Meskhetian Turks – and live in Dayton. Also, arrested was Fanisa Shaydullina, 26, a Russian national living in the U.S. illegally, who is the wife of Muzaffar. Agents found an AK-47 in the home.

    The Turkish trio were charged with weapons and wire-fraud related offenses. Per unsealed search warrants, the Mirsolievs are suspected of involvement in a scheme to defraud the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

      Are they Meskhetians or Uzbeks? We brought a whole bunch of Uzbeks here in a mysterious airlift (State Dept. and CIA project) a few years ago. I haven’t checked out the story yet, but will shortly.


      • pungentpeppers said

        Good point. Per news reports they are “Turks” – and there are some ethnic Osman Turks living in Uzbekistan, besides the Mesketians. The arrestees don’t look like typical Uzbeks to me, based on their appearance. Because the JTTF became involved, I wonder if they have a shared background with Fazliddin Kurbanov (the terrorist from Uzbekistan arrested in Idaho). ….. This issue shows how difficult it is for law enforcement to know who is who, and what is what.

    It’s obvious why they are pairing ObamaCare with immigration: the American public is going to pay a whole lot more healthcare because of immigration. Just look at what happened in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, this past spring and summer.

    *–Tuberculosis Outbreak in Sheboygan Costs $300,000 For One Case!–*

    Sheboygan, a city of 50,000, needed $4.7 million in emergency funding from the State of Wisconsin this year to fight an outbreak of drug-resistant tuberculosis. The first case discovered was that of a middle-aged mother in a large immigrant family who started having symptoms last August. The strain of TB she carried was multi-drug resistant and would require about $300,000 worth of medical treatment.

    Testing of the woman’s relatives uncovered additional active cases and some suspected cases where the patients presented symptoms of TB and had abnormal chest X-rays. Several of them were schoolchildren.

    As of this week, Sheboygan County Health Workers have found active TB in nine of the woman’s relatives. Theirs is of a different strain that is easier to treat. However, since it is resistant to one commonly used drug, treatment is still costly.

    About 450 people who were in close contact with the TB patients, including students and staff in the schools, family and friends, co-workers and health care workers, have been tested for TB.

    About 30 of them were found to have latent TB, a dormant version that could become active. They are starting to receive preventive treatment.

    Health officials decline to identify the family at the center of the outbreak, but they say the people were part of an immigrant community, a common theme in most current TB outbreaks in the U.S.

    Sheboygan is home to sizable populations from Mexico and Southeast Asia, where TB is common. Asian immigrants make up half of Wisconsin’s recent TB cases. Refugees among the Hmong people of Laos and Thailand have been among the most difficult-to-treat cases.

      Sheesh! Thanks! I can’t keep up with your research. I think I see many many stories every day relating to refugees and you show up with even more. Imagine how many there are out there that we don’t see.
