Give a thumbs up to our Forefathers who gave us the United States Constitution. Obama tried to sneak through an amnesty program that is illegal under the Constitution and it took a Judge from Texas to become a true hero in this sad chapter from Obama who loves to play Dictator considering the Republican Congress could have stopped this and didn’t.
Obama tried to get it through using the argument that since the Congress’s failure to act and the seriousness of resolving the immigration issue it compelled Obama to take action. Well that’s just the way it works Obama, if a president cannot bring the Congress to a negotiated agreement negotiations must go on until agreement is meant but Obama, president turned Dictator feels compelled to take things into his own hands, well this time it backfired.
The following is from Feb 17,2015, posted by Fred Barbush, published by the Washington Post: “A federal judge in Texas last night temporarily blocked the Obama administration’s executive actions on immigration. The judge, responding to a suit filed by 26 Republican-run states, did not rule on the legality of immigration orders but said there was sufficient merit to the challenge to warrant a suspension while the case goes forward.”
“No law gave the administration the power “to give 4.3 million removable aliens what the Department of Homeland Security itself labels as ‘legal presence,’” the judge said in a memorandum opinion. “In fact the law mandates that these illegally-present individuals be removed.” The Department of Homeland Security “has adopted a new rule that substantially changes both the status and employability of millions.”
“The administration has defended them as routine exercises of presidential authority, made necessary by Congress’s failure to enact comprehensive revisions to U.S. immigration law. U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen in Brownsville strongly disagreed.”
Posted today by Charlie Spiering, published by Breitbart News: “The Obama administration revealed today that it will not take the fight over executive immigration amnesty to the Supreme Court, essentially admitting defeat in its fight to lift a court-ordered stay placed by a Texas judge.”
I understand fully what happened here and I know you do also. Obama knew all along that this amnesty program of his was illegal. He figured he would try it anyway hoping it would sneak through but I believe it was just the day before Judge Hanen put a stop to the order and Obama has been backtracking ever since. By Obama not taking it to the Supreme Court tells the whole story on what kind of weasel we have as president. If this Dictator has the audacity to pull stunts like this even by knowing we have a Constitution can you imagine what he would be pulling off if We The People were not protected by a Constitution! This is so shameful and dangerous to have Obama as president. For the next year he must be watched closely and constantly.
