DREAMer confronts Steve King: Here, tear up my DACA card if you donít want me here
Hot Air ^ | August 5, 2014 | Allahpundit

As many others have noted, the high point here is Rand Paul bailing out mid-bite as soon as he hears the word “DREAM.” He’ll get in your face on foreign policy and he’ll push bold, controversial ideas like restoring voting rights to felons, but put him on camera in the middle of a squabble between Steve “Cantaloupe Calves” King and a pair of illegals when he’s gearing up for 2016 and all that’s left is one of those little dust clouds like in a Roadrunner cartoon.

If not for that, my favorite moment would be Erika Andiola reassuring King that DACA is constitutional because her companion’s an attorney and he thinks it is. Back in reality, Conn Carroll notes correctly that the fact that Andiola has a “DACA card” at all is proof that what Obama’s been up to isn’t executive business as usual:

In the past, presidents have granted Deferred Action status to small groups of immigrants for humanitarian and foreign policy reasons (President Bush granted such status to foreign students affected by Hurricane Katrina).

But never before had a president granted such broad based relief to the general illegal immigrant population, created a special form for them to apply, and required a set application fee to receive Deferred Action benefits.

Obama’s DACA program changed all that. Instead of just prioritizing otherwise law biding illegal immigrants, like Andiola, at the bottom of the immigration enforcement list, Obama gifted them a legal status and work permits (and is even forcing states to issue them drivers licenses). This is a night and day change from “what his predecessors have done (or rather, not done)” on the issue.

And now we’re on the verge of expanding that treatment to five million more people. What you’re seeing here, actually, is a microcosm of the national immigration debate. King opposes amnesty through whatever means but is especially exercised about Obama’s DACA power grab. Andiola and her friend, while willing to argue the legal merits half-heartedly, are clearly following a “let’s do what’s ‘right’ and worry about what’s constitutional later” approach. And of course reporters are on alert for anything King says that can be used as a cudgel against him and the GOP, with underwhelming results this time out. Maybe they’ll have better luck after Obama announces DACA II and Republicans get really mad.

tear up my DACA card if you don’t want me here

And that would be destroying a federal document.

Fines, penalty, etc. etc.

Going to have to come up with better bait than that Erika.

I would have torn it up, put it on the end of my boot and invited the illegal POS to bend over so I could insert it for his safekeeping.

Wow - I wish I could walk up to government officials and dare them to arrest me for crimes I’ve committed.

But I’m white.

I’d be thrown in jail.

These lawbreakers have a sense of entitlement. There is no country on earth that allows anyone to come across its borders and stay. The woman believes that since her illegal mother was suffering at the hands of her father in Mexico, it was okay for her to come illegally to the US.

In fact, DACA status for the children, now allows the illegal parents to stay.

President Obama unilaterally implemented provisions of the DREAM Act, circumventing Congress under the guise of “prosecutorial discretion.” The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or “DACA” program gives amnesty by executive fiat and work authorizations to illegal aliens under the age of 30 who claimed they arrived in the country before the age of 16. ICE officers would later report that this amnesty was being applied to adult illegal aliens who have been arrested for criminal offenses. In an interview the same day, Secretary Napolitano admitted that DHS “internally set it up so that the parents are not referred for immigration enforcement if the young person comes in for deferred action,” thereby further expanding the scope of the non-enforcement directive.

They sure do have their slogans down don't they.

Anything to avoid being drawn into an actual respectful debate.

It is almost as if the bank robbers get to keep the money for their children!

Everyday, we have children[citizens] hurt from their parents decisions to commit crimes. Yet, no one speaks out for those poor kids who get affected.

Renew Your DACA-- If your initial two-year grant of deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) is expiring, you may request a renewal. This page explains how to request a renewal.

Somewhere in the video King appears to state that there is a lawsuit over the legality of the Dreamer regulations. Does anyone have a link to this?

Steve King should be given some sort of award for putting up with tattoo illegal girl, who would not let him get a word in edgewise.

And puny Paul, of course, heads for the hills.

This is the Kris Kobach suit on behalf of 10 ICE agents.

Judge Dismisses ICE Agents' Lawsuit Challenging Obama's Deferred Action

U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor, who earlier this year had expressed agreement with the agents’ contention that the deferred deportation program undermined their duty to enforce the law, said on Wednesday that it was not within his court’s jurisdiction to decide on what essentially is a dispute between federal employees and their employer, the U.S. government.

In his decision to dismiss the case, O’Connor, sitting in Dallas, Texas, nonetheless reiterated his view that DACA was inherently unlawful.

“Plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the Department of Homeland Security has implemented a program contrary to congressional mandate,” he said in his ruling.

Kris Kobach, the attorney who represented the 10 agents of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in their lawsuit, said that despite the dismissal of the case, the judge’s comments vindicated the agents.

“Today, the court once again made clear that the Obama Administration’s DACA Directive violates federal law,” Kobach said in a written statement. “The question that the court focused on in the ruling was a purely jurisdictional one—whether this case can proceed in federal court or whether it must go through administrative bodies in the executive branch.”

I saw a clip of this and I thought that Steve King bent over backwards to avoid offending this woman. I think he should have simply explained that Mexicans belong in Mexico, period.

DACA = caca
