Just imagine if he cared as much about the unemployed, taxpaying citizen of this nation who cannot get health care as he cares about those who are not citizens. The irony is amazing. Obama is claiming that our immigration system is “broken.” This from the guy who refused to enforce the immigration laws for six years. In fact, he even sued the state of Arizona for attempting to, essentially, create their own replica of federal immigration law for the purposes of protecting their own state borders.
The substance was not the issue. Most people agree with him on the substance. The issue is why he’s doing it and how he’s doing it, the unilateral way he’s doing it — and, I think, probably the unconstitutional way he’s doing it. He’s ratcheting up the use of executive authority with this unilateral action. The one line in this speech about process is, “If you don’t like this, pass a bill.” Well, suppose a future Republican president says, “If you don’t like my decision not to enforce Obamacare or the Civil Rights Act, pass a bill that I like.” That is not how the system works. We have compromise; we have alternate voices; we have a legislative process. We do not have unilateral action by the White House.
All the lies Obama told are being chronicled in the Media today. Just a few. out of the many, I found outrageous…
Now here is the thing. We expect people who live in this country to play by the rules.
But, of course… rules do not apply to the new Emperor…
And to those members of Congress who question my authority to make our immigration system work better or question the wisdom of me acting where Congress has failed, I have one answer: Pass a bill. I want to work with both parties to pass a more permanent legislative solution. And the day I sign that bill into law, the actions I take will no longer be necessary.
Someone, anyone… please explain to this Constitutional Professor / Community Organizer that this is NOT how our Government works!!
Are we a nation that educates the world’s best and brightest in our universities only to send them home to create businesses in countries that compete against us, or are we a nation that encourages them to stay and create jobs here, create businesses here, create industries right here in America?
Have to respond to that with another OBAMA quote: “You didn’t build that!” So now ILLEGAL ALIENS build business, but Americans DON’T??
Now tomorrow I’ll travel to Las Vegas…
