He's done it again. After enacting a virtual amnesty-by-decree for 300,000 illegal aliens last August, Obama is once again showing his total contempt for the rule of law by announcing a new amnesty and work permits for up to 1 million illegal aliens - effective immediately.
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced that effective immediately, people who were brought to the United States before the age of 16 and meet certain criteria will be considered for relief from removal from the country or from entering into removal proceedings. Those eligible will receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization.This action represents an administrative end-run around Congress, which twice rejected the DREAM Act in 2010.
1 million illegal aliens now have an immediate reprieve from deportation and will not be subject to deportation for at least two years - which the DHS can, unilaterally, extend this reprieve indefinitely using its own authority, not subject to Congressional approval. And we suspect, as with Sen. Dick Durbin's DREAM Act, DHS can also provide unlimited reprieves and overrides for any of these illegal aliens, again on its own sole authority.
And Obama finally produces a jobs program - but for ILLEGAL ALIENS - as a million illegals will be added to a workforce to compete with Americans workers already suffering through a record length of recession unemployment.
We knew this was coming. Illegal alien advocates La Raza, ACLU, MALDEF and others have been urging Obama to sign an executive order for amnesty for weeks now, and press reports hinted that this might occur. But now, with his poll numbers collapsing, and independent voters abandoning him in swing states, Obama is using this virtual amnesty as a blatant attempt to garner more of the "Latino" vote, which itself had been souring on him for 2 years.
We need to see the fine print of this order, but if it is similar to the DREAM Act, we should expect an immediate increase in border crossings and massive new fraud as ineligible illegals and foreign nationals scramble to get in on the amnesty order - just as occured in 1986. That is because - as SWA noted in its objection - the DREAM Act would have permitted ANY illegal alien to apply for the amnesty, even if they were well outside the bounds of its terms, and they would be granted an automatic stay of deportation pending "investigation" - which could be extended indefinitely by the DHS Secretary.
If this order matches those terms of the DREAM Act, then we may well be looking at a MAJOR amnesty of more than 2 million ADDITIONAL illegals, due to document fraud, new border crossings, and fraudulent applications.
Enough is enough. This disgraceful end-run of the rule of law and constitution must NOT stand!

We have mostly been weaving along the track of what the republic is supposed to be and the Constitution says for at least 100 years now.
I am not in any way happy with all but a very few politicians. NONE of them.
NO, I don’t think they will do a thing. The rules are out, there is nothing to stand upon as right or wrong or lawful or unlawful. The rules have been thrown away. This is nothing but a mob of a country now. Power goes to the ones who can promise the most and be believable. Nobody respects the Constitution or principles. The Grand Experiment is over. I have previously qualified that by saying, “If this is allowed to continue”. At some point you have to realize you have been in denial of the truth. It is over. It will have to be rebuilt.
So let it be written. So let it be done. said Pharaoh (Yul Brynner) in the 1956 movie The Ten Commandments
With an all-powerful Executive Branch, why do we even bother with Representatives of We the People any longer?!? Once again, when Obama doesnt get what HE (!!!) wants from our elected Representatives, he just proclaims that IT WILL BE by Executive Order or through rules enacted by his proxies in the Executive Departments.
They lost the memo... it was Bush's fault.
The ones from here in the US aren’t that much better, especially Hawaii.........;^)
Where’s Woodward and Bernstein?
Couldn't agree more. As many say, we must get rid of Big Ears or it's all over. Well my friends, I said the night he won the presidency that it was all over -THEN. What he can do in the next few months will astound the sheeple.
I mean’t Republicans should point this out to young voters relative to unemployment, I don’t give Obama advice.

Just got off the phone with Scott Brown’s secretary! I got right through, no lines are tied up. Please everyone call your senators and make them stop this travesty! From the statement I received from the Secretary, Scott Brown is against this Amnesty.
Call now! I can’t believe I wasn’t even placed on hold!
It would be helpful if we had a list, in one place, of all the illegal stunts he has pulled. Maybe a separate thread? I want to overwhelm my congresscritters when calling them.
Nobody will stop his crimes. Next? stroke of the pen AMNESTY for the other 19 million illegals. Hey, why not? Obama knows nobody will ever stop him from doing ANYTHING.
OBAMA WILL ALSO INSTITUTE FULL BLOWN OBAMACARE, EVEN IF HE LOSES IN SCOTUS. I mean, why not? No Republican will stop him.
Ask and ye shall receive.

In the short term, their are two groups that will be severely hurt by this amnesty and work permits. Hispanic Americans will be competing for jobs with the new “legal aliens” who will also gravitate to their neighborhoods. Black Americans will suffer more from job competition and the racial strife already present where they compete with Hispanics for turf. Affirmative Action administrators will have a field day.
Black and Hispanic Americans can split one of two ways as a result of what will happen in the next months. There will be those demanding more government services and benefits as things get worse. They won't blame Obama but will blame anyone opposed to that spending. Others will blame Obama. It's too early to tell how the numbers will break, but Obama will be gone but his wreckage will remain.
Remember in 2008 GWB stopped deportations, but only for a few days just before the election, to avoid deporting Obama's illegal aunt (who now has been legalized). There will be a few in congress who oppose this, but now POTUSes in both parties seem determined to take steps to engineer an eventual leftist-voting super majority here. Looks like there will never be another Eisenhower.
Meanwhile, Holder sues states to make it easier to vote illegally.
What will prevent the continued looting of a once relatively wealthy and special nation?
One way to look at it is some GOP characters don't even look past the next election, and are so scared sh**less by the possibility of offending Hispanic voters that they will sell out the republic one step at a time. That is probably part of the story. History shows many successful gradual encroachments of this kind, including the years before World War 2.
Or maybe, as you suggest, those at the very top have thought this out, and really want the Leftists to take over. because in the process they can gain power, wealth, whatever.
Rubio may have "good intentions" with his version of Dream Act, but the Leftists know how to use it as another step toward their goals.
yep, thats the problem...everyday its something new, and the house and a few sinaters will squak for a minute, and do nothing, and the nothing is forgotten with tomorrows obamanation...
its like 'groundhog day' on crack...
and to think that we actually believed that controlling the House [purse] mattered...
