Obama Granting Amnesty by Executive Order?
Amid buzz that President Obama may be seeking to parole or “defer action” on millions of illegal aliens in the U.S., eight Republican senators are warning the president not to advance any such plan.
“There’s a lot we can agree on when it comes to dealing with the immigration problems in the United States, but this appears to be amnesty in disguise, and is simply an attempt to circumvent Congress,” Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a statement.
Grassley and Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.; David Vitter, R-La.; Jim Bunning, R-Ky.; James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Thad Cochran, R-Miss.; and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., signed a letter to the president dated June 21.
“We understand that there’s a push for your administration to develop a plan to unilaterally extend either deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens in the United States,” they wrote in their letter. “We understand that the administration may include aliens who have willfully overstayed their visas or filed for benefits knowing that they will not be eligible for a status for years to come.”
“Deferred action” is granted by the Department of Homeland Security. It’s a short-term suspension of deportation hearings for illegal aliens. With “deferred action,” illegals are often allowed to apply for employment authorization cards.
The lawmakers noted that “deferred action” and parole are discretionary actions reserved for “individual cases that present unusual, emergent or humanitarian circumstances.”
“Deferred action and parole were not intended to be used to confer a status or offer protection to large groups of illegal aliens, even if the agency claims that they look at each case on a ‘case-by-case’ basis,” they wrote.
The senators agreed that the nation’s immigration laws “need to be fixed,” but they added, “While deferred action and parole are executive branch authorities, they should not be used to circumvent Congress’ constitutional authority to legislate immigration policy, particularly as it relates to the illegal population in the United States.”
Urging Obama for assurance that he has no plans to use either authority, the senators requested that he clarify the administration’s intentions immediately.
Obama Granting Amnesty by Executive Order?
For the last 2 or 3 days I have been mentioning the very REAL possibility that Barack Hussein Obama was on the verge of issuing executive orders that would cause severe damage, perhaps irreparable damage to this nation.
It appears that I am not the only one that believes, or suspects this from Obama. Yesterday, June 22nd, I made these comments on Bloviating Zeppelin
Obama would very easily become the most oppressive dictator in world history IF the American people weren’t armed… And that will be a project he undertakes before the November elections I fear…
I followed up answering a question from Bloviating Zeppelin here:
BZ — An executive order… That is his only option… He’ll NEVER get it through the Senate and House, so that is his only option… I personally think the military and LEOs will tell him to piss off but then the option of UN Troops opens up… Blue Helmets and Berets make excellent targets…
I hope and pray, as should you, that I am correct in my belief that our Law Enforcement and Troops would ignore orders that are blatantly illegal and obviously dangerous to the American people, orders that would, in fact, turn America into a 3rd world dictatorship under the thumb of a clueless socialist, Barack Hussein Obama.
Yesterday, my good friend Angry White Dude made this POST, and I have to think the answer is yes, he will, and if he sees no immediate civil insurrection, he will follow that order with the one that turns America into a pathetic dung heap. I am seriously convinced that Obama is more than eager, I believe he is ready, willing and just waiting for the right time to issue the order to confiscate ALL guns from the hands of American citizens.
Disarming the American public and turning the USA into a dictatorship is the only way Barack Hussein Obama can survive past the mid-term elections in November. If these elections go as predicted, the Congress and Senate may well be back under GOP control. Obama can’t stand for that to happen. He would be rendered powerless, save executive orders, and an animal placed in a corner WILL come out fighting for it’s life.
Not that GOP control is a good thing, if these GOP folks aren’t Conservatives, they are nothing more than RINOs, but even a RINO would be head and shoulders above the abomination we currently suffer in the White House!
