What happens when the opposition party is so committed to implementing amnesty – to the extent that they are willing to destroy their own base? The President will take the prerogative to implement amnesty on his own without fear of reprisal.
I never thought we’d live to see the day when the rule of law is suspended by administrative fiat to the point that Democrats openly tout their illegal plans:
Schumer, one of the leaders of the Senate’s Gang of Eight that pushed through a comprehensive immigration package last year, said it is clear where the issue of immigration reform is heading.
“They can either help pass comprehensive reform, which will greatly reduce the flow of illegal immigrants, grow our economy by bringing in needed workers in high-tech and agriculture areas, and provide a hard-earned path to eventual citizenship for the 11 million in the shadows,” he said in a Facebook post, “or they can sit idly by and watch the President greatly curtail deportations while 11 million continue to live in limbo here in America.”
Indeed, Obama has already ordered a review of deportations and has transferred DHS funding from a border fence to increased salaries for bureaucrats. This comes on the heels of the President’s pledge that Obamacare sign-ups will not be used to track down illegals for deportations.
What’s even more appalling than Democrats openly bragging about flaunting the law and vitiating our sovereignty is the complete callous disregard by Republicans.
What if citizens would stop paying taxes, or refuse to participate in Social Security? If the executive branch can countermand a law of Congress, why can’t the voters – those who grant Congress its authority – do the same?
The irony is that we are all compelled to obey laws that we don’t like, even those of dubious constitutional authority. Yet, the President is able to disobey one of the few core functions of the federal government while granting handouts to those who come and stay here illegally!
Senator Sessions has compiled a full list of actions this president has taken to violate laws passed by Congress and erase our borders while endangering our national security. Yet, instead of spending millions on ads educating the public about Obama’s malevolent and imperial actions, they are actually spending millions promoting Obama’s open borders agenda in an appallingly deceptive manner. Groups like FWD, run by McConnell allies, are running ads attacking House Republicans for not supporting amnesty.
Parting question: If Obama feels he can act unilaterally to alter America even before the midterm elections, what will stop him from pushing the envelope after November, when he officially becomes a lame duck?
