Once again President Obama showed his total disregard for the supreme law of the land by issuing his decree to not enforce current Immigration Laws. Now, on its face the decree sounds wonderful. I mean, when it’s about the children, even children of those who are ILLEGALLY residing in the U.S. it’s has just got to be a good thing to take care of the children. It wasn’t their fault that the parental units chose to enter the U.S. ILLEGALLY. That said, does President Obama really care about these children? Let’s see, he is 3 1/2 years into his presidency and he has introduced a comprehensive immigration reform plan….well he hasn’t. He certainly could have mind you, he had a veto proof majority in both houses of Congress for 2 years and yet he chose to pay back his friends who supported him in the auto workers union by bailing out the “car industry” and place the burden on the U.S. taxpayer. So the children of Illegals got nada. Then instead of Comprehensive Immigration Reform he chose to give us the Affordable Healthcare Act. But again that grand bargain is more about payback and control than providing affordable healthcare for all Americans. And let’s remember that the Affordable Healthcare Act was brought to the American people by the benevolence of the Democratic Party.
President Obama had both houses of Congress and he and his party chose to attempt to control 1/6 of the entire U.S. economy. Strike two for the children. So when he says this is what the American people want and this is good for the American people well not so fast there Mr. President. First of all, the American people want the current immigration laws enforced. The American people want the borders of the United States secured. That is what is good for the American people, and THAT is what they want. Then and only then can a serious discussion on how to deal with the illegally residing Peoples here in the U.S. take place. No rationally thinking people on either side of the political aisle want to tear apart families, illegal or not. But the constitutional scholar should, of all people, know there is a process to follow. There seems to be this thing called the U.S. Constitution that gives the Legislative Branch (i.e. Congress) the authority to determine how people can become naturalized citizens of the United States, NOT the Executive Branch of our Government. You see we in the United States have 3 separate, but equal, branches that make up the Federal Government. No branch is to be more powerful than the other two. President Obama does NOT have the authority to pick and choose the laws he wants enforced in this nation and he took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the U.S. Constitution. He has done this in the past…. does anybody remember DOMA. Lets face it… there is not much that President Obama cares about really except being re-elected to another term on office. He really doesn’t care about the children of illegal immigrants and he certainly doesn’t care about the RULE OF LAW. So his executive overreach is nothing more than continued campaign voter pandering. To use children in a cheap political game is the height of hypocrisy. Maybe next time let’s include those who have the authority to make laws do what they were elected to do instead of employing cheap political games in an effort to gain votes for re-election.
