Obama has just violated the Constitution and the law for the upteenth fucking time.
“I’ve got a whole drawer full of royal edicts.”
Obama will sign an executive order granting “deferred action” to two groups of people — the illegal alien parents of anchor babies and illegal spawn who were brought into the country as of 2010. These criminals are being rewarded for longevity.
By Executive Fiat, Obama just created another unconstitutional law on his own.
From Fox News.
……During a 15-minute primetime speech Thursday, Obama said his administration will start accepting applications from illegal immigrants who seek the deferred actions.
Those who qualify will be granted protections for three years, Obama said, as he laid out his sweeping plan to the public Thursday night from the East Room of the White House.
“Mass amnesty would be unfair,” Obama said during the primetime address. “Mass deportation would be both impossible and contrary to our character.”
Obama, who pitched his plan as a “commonsense, middle ground approach,” said “if you meet the criteria, you can come out of the shadows and get right with the law” but warned “if you’re a criminal, you’ll be deported.”
The federal statute clearly states:
Any alien who
(1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or
(2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or
(3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact, shall, for the first commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18 or imprisoned not more than 6 months, or both, and, for a subsequent commission of any such offense, be fined under title 18, or imprisoned not more than 2 years, or both.
Anyone foreign citizen who enters the United States illegally is ALREADY A CRIMINAL.
Illegals are responsible for adding thousands of crimes to the national statistics. Cop killers, child molesters, murderers, rapists, thieves, robbers, gangs (MS13s), and muslim terrorists are coming into this country illegally, committing more felonies once they get in. Mexico is doing its part to expedite the dumping of their vermin into our country, interfering with our laws, and get this—imposing a fee to enter their country. We should adopt Mexico’s immigration laws. They’re a hell of a lot tougher than ours.
None of this matters to the narcissistic sociopath in the White House.
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) posted a response at USA Today:
Americans defeated President Obama’s disastrous amnesty plans both in Congress and at the voting booth. Tonight, President Obama defied an entire nation and declared that he will impose his rejected amnesty through the brute force of executive order.
President Obama’s executive amnesty will provide an estimated 5 million illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress rejected, in violation of federal law. His order will grant them social security numbers, government-issued ID’s, legal status and work permits. Illegal immigrants will now be able to take jobs and benefits directly from struggling Americans in a time of high unemployment and low wages. They will be able to take jobs from Americans in all occupations, ranging from truck drivers to power company workers to jobs with city government. Many illegal immigrants will also be able to obtain green cards and become permanent residents, allowing them access to almost all federal programs, to receive citizenship and sponsor foreign relatives to join them in the U.S.
In addition to providing formal amnesty benefits for 5 million illegal immigrants, President Obama has also eliminated virtually all enforcement with respect to the other nearly 7 million illegal immigrantsin the United States. As the president’s own former ICE Director, John Sandweg said: “if you are a run-of-the-mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.”
All you have to do is get into the country from anywhere on globe — whether through the border or by overstaying a visa — and you are free to remain, take jobs and receive benefits. This year alone, the White House has released into the United States more than 100,000 illegal immigrants who simply showed up at the border and demanded entry.
And now, with a single pen stroke, President Obama is obliterating what little remains of Americans’ immigration protections. Not only will millions of low-wage illegal immigrants rush into the labor market, but they will collect billions in taxpayer dollars as well. These costly government benefits range from child tax credits, to public housing to the likelihood that amnestied immigrants will rely on taxpayers for medical and retirement benefits.
Only a short time ago, President Obama himself admitted this action would be illegal and unconstitutional: “I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own” he explained, adding “that’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.” President Obama also said that: “The problem is that I’m the president of the United States, I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed.”
Apparently, America now has its first emperor.
There isn’t one damned thing in the Constitution which gives a president the power to make laws at their own discretion. Article 1, Section 8 and the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, specifically outline the enumerated powers of the federal government.
Article 1 states that only Congress is authorized “To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”
Separation of Powers and checks and balances are included in that.
The 10th Amendment in particular, is the most powerful statement of limits on the federal government:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
That means that unless the Constitution grants a power to the federal government, the federal government does not have that power. That includes the president.
Obama hasn’t just crossed the unConstitutional line since he got in office, he’s moved the goddamned thing repeatedly. He doesn’t just circumvent U.S. laws, he makes up his own and decides to enforce them.
Obama has neither the authority or the power to make laws on he own. When’s the impeachment?
Obama’s standard M.O. is to blame others for his flaws and malfeasance. This time, it’s no different. He blames Congress for ‘failing to act’, when they simply refused to act in aiding and abetting illegal amnesty. There are at least three things that are illegal about Obama’s unilateral action: Distorting prosecutorial discretion, usurping legislative authority, and breaching his sworn duty.
Obama actually considers himself to be his own government; able to bypass Congress and the Constitution to make his own rules. He also told aides it would be so much easier to be the president of China; which he has obviously mistaken for the United States.
Obama’s abuse of office, corruption, refusal to abide by the Constitution, and tyrannical hubris should have resulted in a criminal trial for himself. Republicans have threatened to stop Obama’s plan and Mitch McConnell, the incoming majority leader in Congress, has promised to retaliate against Obama’s slap in the face of democracy, saying that: “If President Obama acts in defiance of the people and imposes his will on the country, Congress will act.”
The answer to all this is to impeach the son of a bitch.
We’ll see just how serious the new GOP majority is about bringing corruptocrat Obama and his regime of thugs to justice, especially since they seem to be more afraid of a potential Joe Gaffemeister Biden as president.
We already had one revolution in this country against an oppressive, lawless, authoritarian government. It’s about time for another.
Obama just slapped the face of America again. Okay, GOP. What the fuck are you going to do about it?
