You remember the notorious Dream Act that Congress has repeatedly refused to give to Barack Hussein Obama? Well, he finally got tired of waiting, and so he just took it.
The Washington Times reports: “Bowing to pressure from immigrant rights activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria, such as attending school, having family in the military or having primary responsible for other family members’ care.”
“The move marks a major step for President Obama, who for months has said he does not have broad categorical authority to halt deportations and said he must follow the laws as Congress has written them. But in letters to Congress on Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said she does have discretion to focus on ‘priorities’ and that her department and the Justice Department will review all ongoing cases to see who meets the new criteria.”
This is nothing short of a deliberate dereliction of duty by Obama who swore that he would uphold the laws of this country. Obama has just publicly announced that he will refuse to enforce the law when it comes to certain types of illegal aliens.
The article continues “The move won immediate praise from Hispanic activists and Democrats who had strenuously argued with the administration that it did have authority to take these actions, and said as long as Congress is deadlocked on the issue, it was up to Mr. Obama to act.”
Let’s think about that last sentence. This means as long as Congress, for whatever reason, refuses to produce a desired result for some pressure group, the President of the United States is just supposed to give it to them anyway. Trouble is, that kind of thing is largely what the entire U.S. Constitution was drafted by the Founding Fathers in order to prevent: The exercise of arbitrary power by the president. Ever hear of checks and balances? Or Dictatorships?
The President of the United States is not supposed to make policy and implement policy all on his own. The exact Constitutional phrase is that he is to seek the “advice and consent” of Congress. For Obama to do what he has just done should be an impeachable offense, but I don’t think we need to hold our breath for that.
The goal of the Democrats is clear: legalize the 20 to 30 million illegal aliens in this country so that they can not only vote Democrat, but bring in their relatives from all over the Third World to vote Democrat, thus giving perpetual power to the Democrat party and effectively creating a one-party state.
Most White people are strongly opposed to this happening, but it’s happening right now. We need to be showing a lot more opposition to this than the generally gutless Republican Party has been showing.
