Senators Challenge Pres. Obama on Rumors of Executive Order Amnesty
NumbersUSA ^ | 6-21-2010 | (staff)

Posted on 06/21/2010 5:46:06 PM PDT by grey_whiskers

Several Senators have learned of a possible plan by the Obama Administration that would provide a mass Amnesty for the nation's 11-18 million illegal aliens. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), eight Senators addressed a letter to the President asking for answers to questions about a plan that would allow DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to provide an amnesty if they can't secure enough votes for a bill in the Senate.

The letter that was sent to Pres. Obama earlier today asks the President for clarification on the use of deferred action or parole for illegal aliens. The executive actions are typically used in special cases and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but if 60 votes can't be secured in the Senate to pass a mass Amnesty, the Administration may use the discretionary actions as an alternative.

This is why winning the House back in Nov. will simply make Obama more dangerous. He’ll have a veto pen in one hand, and an E.O. pen in another....not to mention all the unelected regulators one could ask for.

If the senate and house let ZERO do this, they should all resign and go home.

They would no longer be needed!

Oh! And they can leave their retirement benefits behind!

Nothing acute. But plenty somatic. IOW, it's just his nature, not some temporary aberration.

As soon as the Latin American news picks this one up, there is going to be a STAMPEDE of illegals across the border.

NOtice is says Napolitano. This way his Highness can say it wasn’t him. Now I know where JOhn Gotti learned to be the Teflon Don.

Obama and his criminal gang are salivating at getting
18 million new Democratic voters. If there isn’t a clean sweep of these bas*ar*s in November, this country is finished.

Congress holds the purse strings, Annie. He can veto but congress can override those vetoes. As for EOs, let’em rip. They can be removed later.

With Republicans controlling all of Congress, they can hold Obama by the short-hairs. He is a coward and a liar and then will be a lame duck.

If there ever was a spark needed to set off a revolt (and I mean a REAL one) this would be it.

I would hock what I need to and buy a pitchfork and head for what I would hope would be MILLIONS marching on DC to shut it down--permanently, until the Fascist Basturd is impeached or resigns!!!

If they do get amnesty passed and we’re talking about 12 million new voters hitting the rolls on the eve of a major election, the polling stations are going to be utter chaos. He’ll turn this election into a farce.

No one in the executive branch can give amnesty to aliens. The REAL issue is if the Repubs have the balls to call Obama on it.

This is all news to me ... that Napolitano can issue such an order. I'm guessing that her power (if it exists) would be limited to allowing people to stay here as non-voting residents. I find it very difficult to believe that she can make them citizens with the stroke of a pen.

“I’d like to see the military rise up.”

The military should lead an all-out assault on Washington if amnesty is granted by Executive Order. Enough is enough!

That’s possible...after we identify the House members who will draft the articles, a majority who will pass them, and then a majority in the Senate to carry out the impeachment.

I would gladly volunteer to load up some supplies and take a stand or rather build a tree stand or just something from cabelas and hopefully have quite a few other volunteers with the same plan.

They are NOT invading America.

Is a darn shame we don’t have any military sources able to do the job, guess its all up to the good ole boys.

TITLE 8 > CHAPTER 12 > SUBCHAPTER II > Part II > § 1181(a) Documents required; admission under quotas before June 30, 1968
Except as provided in subsection (b) and subsection (c) of this section no immigrant shall be admitted into the United States unless at the time of application for admission he
(1) has a valid unexpired immigrant visa or was born subsequent to the issuance of such visa of the accompanying parent, and
(2) presents a valid unexpired passport or other suitable travel document, or document of identity and nationality, if such document is required under the regulations issued by the Attorney General. With respect to immigrants to be admitted under quotas of quota areas prior to June 30, 1968, no immigrant visa shall be deemed valid unless the immigrant is properly chargeable to the quota area under the quota of which the visa is issued.

Even if they ignore this part of the law(by issuing visas to any and everybody), the admitted aliens cannot vote since voter qualifications are determined by the states and not the Congress.

And just simply remove U.S. citizenship from 18 million former illegals?

That will go over well, I'm sure.

If he does that he should most certainly be impeached.

They are going to try this after the election in November, I’m convinced of it.

If this nincompoop doesn’t start a nuclear war in the middle east, he may start a civil war here in the US.
