Obama Removes The Allegiance Commitment From Citizenship Oath
Finding my country: Carilion
staffer helps refugees gain citizenship
Roanoke Times, 7-26-2015, Pg 1, 8: Finding My Country
This is a very nice story
about one of the most important aspects of legal-immigration into this Great Country
– the path to Citizenship through Naturalization.
My parents came here as
teenagers and learned the language and studied for and became Naturalized Citizens
as did tens of millions of other legal-immigrants.
However, Not mentioned and
very disturbing is the Obama changes to the Oath of Citizenship that
essentially drops the Allegiance portion of the Oath.
Sen. Tom Cotton: Changes To
Citizenship Oath ‘Undermines What It Means To Be A Citizen’
Tuesday, U.S. Citizenship
and Immigration Services announced it was altering the eligibility requirements
for modifications to the Oath of Allegiance. Namely, while immigrants seeking
to become citizens are usually required to declare they will “bear arms on
behalf of the United States” and “perform noncombatant service in the Armed
Forces of the United States,” the new guidance now allows for not only those
with religious objections but also people with a strongly held beliefs to omit
After tens of millions of
legal-immigrants have taken “The Oath”, Obama has decided to change the oath to
totally dilute the meaning of “Allegiance” – the definition of which is:
“loyalty of an individual to
a group or cause.
"those wishing to
receive citizenship must swear allegiance to the republic”.
faithfulness, fidelity, obedience, homage, devotion.”
There’s one obvious reason
for Obama’s change of the Oath of Allegiance: He wants to kowtow
to the Sharia Muslims who exclusively swear Allegiance only to Mohamed.
Interesting that no one did
that for the Catholics and their allegiance to the Pope.
This all fits in well with Obama's stated reason for not wearing our flag pin: "I don't want to take sides"!
Really? And what sides would that be?
And his omission of saying "Under God" at every opportunity including his appearance at Gettysburg.
The Hope Was Fine – The
Changes Have Been A Disaster!
But the Pravda Media continues to wrap a big flag around him -- too bad it's not OUR Flag!
It would be reasonable and prudent for Obama to read and reflect on Teddy Roosevelt's definition of what it means for an immigrant to become an American!
|We should insist that if the immigrant who comes here does in good faith become an
American and assimilates himself to us he shall be treated on an exact equality with every one else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birth-place or origin.But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American and nothing but an American. If he tries to keep segregated with men of his own origin and separated from the rest of America, then he isn’t doing his part as an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. . . We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language, for we intend to see that the crucible turns our people out as Americans, of American nationality, and not as dwellers in a polyglot boarding-house; and we have room for but one soul loyalty, and that is loyalty to the American people.|
