Emperor-in-Chief Barack Obama Issues ‘Dream Act’ …Grants Immunity to Illegal Alien Children Bypassing Congress Even though Obama Previously Stated US President Did not Have Authority to Do So (VIDEO)
It’s good to be King … Just one problem, the United States has a President and Three branches of Government, Executive, Legislative and Judicial.
Barack Obama, the Emperor in Chief bypasses the Congress and signed into law by Executive order his version of the ‘Dream Act’. The Presidents Executive order would stop deporting some illegal immigrants who were brought to the country as children and have gone on to be productive and otherwise law-abiding “illegal” residents. So why now? Barack Obama had 3+ year to do such a thing, but did nothing. Obama had a Democrat controlled House and Senate for the first two yeas of his Presidency and did nothing. This has nothing to do with anything but desperate politics, an upcoming election and pandering to the Mexican vote with “back door amnesty”. As stated at Hot Air, “Obama on new DREAM Act policy: This isn’t amnesty, it’s the right thing to do”. Whether that is or is not the case, it is not up to the President to pass the law.
President Obama said Friday his administration would stop deporting some illegal immigrants who were brought to the country as children and have gone on to be productive and otherwise law-abiding residents, forcing the emotional immigration policy debate into the forefront of the presidential campaign.
Obama described his decision as the “right thing to do for the American people,” but many Democrats and immigration advocates also saw it as the right strategic move to boost his reelection chances.
The policy puts political pressure on Obama’s Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, by highlighting past GOP opposition to legislation designed to help young immigrants and by forcing Romney to confront his party’s sharp divisions over the issue.
But the shift also carried some danger for the president, who risks alienating centrist swing voters who tend to be more conservative on immigration issues and could see the move as politically opportunistic.
Several conservative Republican lawmakers quickly denounced Obama’s move as “backdoor amnesty.”
Obviously, comprehensive immigration reform needs to take place; however, this is hardly the way to do it by Executive fiat. Dealing with children brought to the US at no fault of their own is the last thing to deal with, not the first. Border security should be handled first, not last. All this executive order does is not create a greater “illegal” immigrant magnet for individuals to come into the country against the laws of the United States.
Once again we see how Barack Obama is a complete, ineffective leader. Obama is a hyper-active partisan who has ZERO ability to work with others and get things done. Bill Clinton worked with the Republican Congress, George Bush worked with the Democrat Lion of the Senate Ted Kennedy on ‘no child left behind” and Ronald Reagan worked with a Democrat controlled Congress and the “Reagan” Democrats … not Obama. The most liberal, socialist President ever has no concept of how to play nice with others. Instead, he thinks he is a King and just does things in spite of what the laws might say. Case in point prior to this, Obamacare.
OBAMA DISREGARDS CONGRESS AND PASSES LAW ON CHILDREN OF ILLEGALS … IS THIS LEGAL?
Why did Obama have a change of heart as opposed to what he has said in the past when interviewed o Univision regarding how laws of “illegal” immigration are passed in the US? Watch the VIDEO below at the 7:15 mark where Barack Obama says, “… that is the law that is on the books right now. The way our system works the President does not have the authority to simply ignore Congress and say we are not going enforce the laws that you passed”. So how did Obama go from his hands were tied with regards to the “Dream Act” to unilaterally changing and creating new immigration law in the US? How long before Democrats will be demanding that these folks are allowed to vote? After all, that is really what this is all about, creating a new monolithic voting block for Dems.
Rep. Steve King (IA-R) to sue Obama administration over new immigration policy.
Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King said Friday that he plans to sue the Obama administration to halt implementation of its newly announced selective illegal immigration law enforcement policy. He told Mike Huckabee on the former Arkansas governor’s radio program Friday that he successfully sued his own state’s governor — and won — over a similar separation-of-powers issue.
“I will tell you that — I’m not without experience on this — I’m prepared to bring a suit and seek a court order to stop implementation of this policy,” King said
“I have done it once in the past successfully when then-Governor Tom Vilsack thought he could legislate by executive order — and the case of King vs. Vilsack is in the books.
