That citizens have been opposed and congress has voted against such moves towards amnesty have been completely ignored as Obama stated,
“This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It’s not a permanent fix.”It isn’t a “fix” at all and contrary to what he says, it is indeed amnesty and immunity. What else could it be but amnesty and immunity?
Democrats pulled this nonsense back in 1986 when Republican Ronald Reagan was president, blaming the failure on him and not accepting any responsibility themselves, even though they wrote it and passed it as Democrats held majorities in both the House and Senate.
Expected to lessen illegal immigration, it had the opposite effect as now others saw that our laws mean nothing and there would be no enforcement and eventually, if they waited it out, they too would be declared immune to our laws.
Today, they once again won out as Barack Obama made a mockery out of our laws, our constitution and the separation of powers written into it.
Within hours of making his announcement, his reelection campaign sent out an email that said in part,
“Thanks to our president, this nation's immigration policy just became more fair and more just.”
“Effective immediately, the Department of Homeland Security is taking steps to ensure that young, undocumented immigrants who were brought here as children by their parents, and who have followed the law since then, will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings -- and will be allowed to apply for authorization to work in this country.”
“They're a group that we’ve come to call the ‘Dreamers’ -- and today, the country they love is telling them they should be able to dream as big as they want.”
“For years, the President has called on Congress to make common-sense fixes to our broken immigration system. They haven’t. So he did.”
By what right does he take upon himself to usurp constitutional separations and decide he can just override both Congress and the American people?
Of course, the email also includes,
“Congress still has time to pass the DREAM Act. And if they do, policies like today’s will no longer be necessary.”If that isn’t “do as I say or else,” what is it?
This is the act of a dictator, not an elected representative of the people.
Such a dictatorial act pleases Janet Murguia, president and CEO of the Racist National Council of La Raza (the Race) who said,
“When it comes to the Hispanic community, this action is a political plus for Obama. It’s always good to be able to point to your track record and move the needle toward a promise that you made.”Even though such a promise is contrary to our jurisprudence and constitution as well as the will of the American people? By what right to illegal aliens, here in violation of our established law by committing a criminal act of entering our country illegally, stand up and demand anything?
Obama claims that in their hearts, they are Americans. But they have no regard for American law and expect all of the benefits granted natural born and naturalized citizen, the latter enduring years and years of efforts, fulfilling requirements and living within our laws all to one day, take our oath of citizenship to be granted what we gained by birth?
It is a slap in the face of all those who struggled to meet the requirements to take that oath as these certain ones today receive a pass on violating our laws and end up being moved ahead.
Article II Section 3 of our constitution lays out some duties expected of a president saying,
“He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”Usurping and ignoring our laws at his whim is not what I call “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, whose state has been perhaps hit the hardest by illegal immigration and has the dubious honor of being sued by the Il Duce administration for enforcing our immigration laws, labels Il Duce’s act today as “backdoor amnesty,” adding that is complicates the enforcement of their law, SB 1070 as illegal aliens will not receive documentation, complicating Arizona’s efforts at curbing illegal immigration.
In January 2007, after Democrats took control of both houses of congress and installed as head of the powerful House Judiciary Committee, Democrat Representative from Michigan, John Conyers claimed,
“Our country has been run, far too long, by an Administration that seeks to rule in secrecy. The Bush White House has ignored our founding fathers’ separation of powers, claiming an ever increasing scope of authority in direct conflict with the constitution.”June 15, 2012, although no longer head of that committee sees silence from Mr. Conyers over Barack Obama’s continued usurpation of Congressional Duties and Powers as he willy nilly just declares his will to be the law of the land.
“For the past six years Congress has been silent, watching idly as its powers are usurped.”
“Today we embark on a vigorous defense of our nation, reclaiming our constitution and reasserting the authority of Congress in our tripartite system of government.”
Spineless Republicans, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell did not address the issue, claiming difficulty for Republicans trying to appeal to the Hispanics, who will not vote for Republicans anyway, preferring to vote for those who help them violate our laws and still receive the entitlements meant for American Citizens.
Lamar Smith, Republican Representative from Texas and now Chair of the House Judiciary Committee issued a Press Release saying,
“President Obama’s decision to grant amnesty to potentially millions of illegal immigrants is a breach of faith with the American people. It also blatantly ignores the rule of law that is the foundation of our democracy. This huge policy shift has horrible consequences for unemployed Americans looking for jobs and violates President Obama’s oath to uphold the laws of this land.”Unlike Conyers, Smith lays out no plans to hold Il Duce Obama accountable.
Republican Representative Steve King of Iowa said he planned to file suit to halt the policy.
Presumed Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney said the decision
“will make finding a long-term solution to the nation’s immigration issues more difficult,” adding “the plight of illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children is an important matter to be considered.”Just what we need, more fence straddling and gutless actions.
If America is to regain her greatness and return to a rule of law, the lawless dictator, Il Duce Obama and his band of Socialist Democrats MUST be voted out this November. As gutless as Romney is, he will still be an improvement over Il Duce.
My greatest fear is if we don’t oust this band of Socialists, seeing Il Duce Obama’s quest to be dictator, 2012 just might be our last free election.
