He's going to exercise a presidential power known as the Executive Order. And the good people in the Right Wing are OUTRAGED!
OK — it’s not TECHNICALLY an Executive Order? Instead it’s a directive to the Department of Homeland Security? But it carries the same effect in the fact that he can DO it, and he doesn’t need congressional approval, and it can take effect immediately.
So, what’s causing all the outrage?
The President will issue an order this afternoon directing his administration to stop deporting younger illegal immigrants and would begin grant them work permits.
The policy will apply to immigrants younger than 30 who arrived in the U.S. before the age of 16, have been in the country at least five years, have no criminal history and graduated from high school, earned a GED or served in the military. The decision could affect as many as 800,000 immigrants.
Well, sir, I can tell you that the Conservatives aren’t happy about this! Not at ALL!
Over at Red State…
King Barack Hussein Kardashian Obama thinks that he gets to invent laws where they don’t exists and disregard the ones that are already on the books.
In yet another demonstration of contempt for the rule of law and the separation of powers, the Obama administration has announced that it will no longer enforce our immigration laws (not that he’s been enforcing them until now). The Washington Times broke the story this morning about a secret memo from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that establishes new policies advising agents to release some illegals caught crossing the border. The new policy will encourage agents to suspend deportation proceedings and grant amnesty to those who ostensibly fit the criteria of the Dream Act – a bill that was defeated with overwhelming bipartisan support of Congress. Hence, the administration is publicly declaring that federal agents will ensure our laws are not executed faithfully.
Actually, the policy has nothing to do with what the Sun Myung Moon Times says it does. Read a few paragraphs above. They have to have BEEN here five years. They have to have a high school diploma or GED or have served in the military. And, being president, he has the right to do it. It’s a power of the presidency.
But still, conservatives cry, “Ay, yi, yi! No me gusta!”
Who does this uppity Obama think he is, exercising legal powers that have only been used by WHITE presidents in the past.
The Executive Order can only be properly applied by legally elected WHITE presidents. Like the 291 Executive Orders
Bush 43 implemented. Like the 381 Executive Orders
St. Ronald of Reagan issued and made law. Even the Evil Bill Clinton issued 364 Executive Orders
. In his single term, Bush’s daddy issued 166 Executive Orders
. Obama has some catching up to do for a single term, as he has only issued 127 Executive Orders
. But they were all evil abuses of constitutional authority, not like the combined 838 Executive Orders issued by Reagan, Bush and Bush which were all perfectly legal and within the bounds of law.
Just who does this illegal immigrant criminal dictator think he is, using the law in a legal, constitutional fashion any way he feels like using it?
Watch them gun sales go through the roof!
