DREAM Act Passes by Executive Memo!
Hot Air ^ | 6/26/11 | kozanne

Posted on 06/26/2011 9:33:08 AM PDT by kozanne

Who needs Congressional authority when you can govern by executive fiat?

“A new enforcement memo handed down by the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week has some accusing the White House of running around Congress to implement the DREAM Act – and consequent amnesty for some illegal immigrants – by executive fiat. The new memo, penned by ICE Director John Morton, directs ICE agents, attorneys and directors to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” – meaning less likelihood of deportation – for illegal aliens who have been students in the U.S., who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.” LINKMorton’s excuse for the memo—”not enough resources”:

Specifically, the memo argues, “Because the agency is confronted with more violations than its resources can address, the agency must regularly exercise prosecutorial discretion.”Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer calls this maneuver a Constitutional breech pointing out that it is Congress’s responsibility to enact laws:

So what happens if they choose not to deport?

Do they give them papers to make them legal?

Yes, it makes them able to stay here but are they able to get papers and work toward citizenship? There is so much missing from this story.

I doubt they will though. And that makes me even more mad. There are few politicians today who have the guts or the desire to challenge stuff like this, and often times those who do never carry through to the end and are satisfied with compromises that usually favor the libs.

What we do is ask Speaker Boener to reduce the funding to the Immigration and Naturalization Service consumate with this reduction in their responsibility... Don’t do the work to protect the status of US citizenship... Then get dont get the funding that such an effort requires and get rid of the people who no longer have work to do.

...who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.”

I fully agree with honorable service in the military as a path to citzenship. Here since childhood, on a limited basis, depending on the behavior and progress of the individual. (Has he become, in effect, an American? Has he been self-supporting and tax paying?) But overstaying a student visa? No.

I don’t necessarily disagree with you. But I STRONGLY oppose government by executive fiat. WE HAVE A CONSTITUTION.

While the lamestreams get us to focus on illegal immigration, they’re not saying too much about 0bama’s coup against these United States are they?

“meaning less likelihood of deportation – for illegal aliens who have been students in the U.S., who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.”

Illegal aliens do not serve in the military. They cannot legally enlist. Any illegals that got into the miltary did so using identity theft. If illegal aliens can get into our military enemy agents can get in.

NO.

American citizenship is not for sale at any price. It is madness to accept foreign nationals into the armed forces, and madness to grant citizenship for any reason other than following the rules.

Read something about the history of Rome and the Roman army before you promulgate such high-minded sounding nonsense.

Obama’s Friends Form Strategy to Stay Close
By JODI KANTOR
Published: December 13, 2008

Last Sunday night, President-elect Barack Obama’s three closest friends — Valerie Jarrett, Martin Nesbitt and Dr. Eric Whitaker — sat down in the study of Mr. Nesbitt’s house in Chicago for one of their increasingly frequent heart-to-hearts.

They were puzzling over a new question: how the Obamas, who hope to remain close to their Chicago friends, will spend time with them while living in the isolation chamber of the White House. Over Diet Cokes, the three drafted the beginnings of an elaborate visiting schedule that will bring Hyde Park to Washington, so the nation’s new first family can have a little taste of home.

“O.K, Eric, you need to plan to be in D.C. the first six weekends of the presidency,” Ms. Jarrett, soon to be a senior White House adviser, instructed Dr. Whitaker, he recalled.

In the presidential campaign, the Obamas had a “no new friends” rule, surrounding themselves with a coterie of familiar faces. Even if the Obamas lift that rule in Washington, newcomers are unlikely to replicate the intensity of this group’s ties, formed over more than a decade by births and deaths, Scrabble games, barbecues and vacations, but also by shared beliefs about race, success and responsibility.

Back when the Obamas were hardly the most prominent members of the group, the doctors, lawyers and businessmen from Chicago became not just one another’s friends but also one another’s supporters, forming a network that eventually helped the politician among them on his way to a Senate seat and then the presidency. Their bonds grew only tighter in the long slog of the campaign.

(snip)

The Obama social universe is large, multiracial and far-flung, spanning law school buddies, political allies and friends who kept Mrs. Obama company during her husband’s long absences. But the Obamas’ closest friends are the tight bunch from the South Side of Chicago, who never expected to find themselves in this situation.

Like Mrs. Obama, whose father worked for the city water department, most are from modest backgrounds. (When Mrs. Obama directed a student-volunteerism program at the University of Chicago in the mid-1990s, she was employed by the same office for which her mother had once worked as a secretary.) Mr. Nesbitt, now a real estate executive, is the son of a steel mill worker and a nurse; Mr. Whitaker’s mother was also a nurse, his father a bus driver. Like Mr. Obama, they attended private schools on scholarship.

When they arrived at elite universities, they often found they were among the only blacks in their classrooms. In medical school in Chicago, Dr. Whitaker and Mr. Nesbitt’s wife were taken under the wing of Dr. James Bowman, Ms. Jarrett’s father and the first black tenured professor in his department. (Dr. Whitaker also earned a public health degree at Harvard, where he played basketball with a certain lanky law review president with a funny last name.)

“How many African-Americans are there going to be at the University of Chicago?” Mr. Nesbitt said, explaining how he and Craig Robinson, Mrs. Obama’s brother, now a college basketball coach, became close at business school there, years after meeting on a basketball recruiting trip.

Initially, the Obamas were nowhere near the most successful members of the group. “Michelle was always Craig’s little sister, and Barack was the little sister’s boyfriend,” said John W. Rogers Jr., founder of the first black-owned money management firm in the nation.

When Mr. Obama was a state senator and Mrs. Obama ran a leadership training nonprofit organization, they lived in a building full of academics, unlike the wealthier members of the group, who lived in sprawling apartments or large homes.

(snip)

Before they became involved in national politics, they became involved in school politics. Mrs. Obama, Mr. Nesbitt, Mr. Rogers, Ms. Jarrett and another close friend, Susan Sher, all sat on the board of the Laboratory Schools, private elementary and secondary schools at the University of Chicago, and lobbied for admitting more students from lower-income families.

“We were all too young to be in the civil rights movement,” Mr. Rogers said. Instead they grappled with the questions of first-generation success: how to ensure that others had the same opportunities they did, and more personally, how to give their children the best of everything and yet teach them what had come before.

Dr. Whitaker founded a South Side medical clinic with a barbershop that offered free haircuts to lure black men to get health care; Ms. Jarrett, as city planning commissioner and then a real estate executive, championed mixed-income development to replace housing projects; and Mr. Rogers founded a charter school that focuses on financial literacy.

The media knew what they were getting when they pushed the community organizer into the limelight and concealed his past.

I don't think America understood what a "community organizer" is about.

"Here since childhood, on a limited basis, depending on the behavior and progress of the individual. (Has he become, in effect, an American? Has he been self-supporting and tax paying?)"

You said, in essence, out with G-d, family, country, and in with favorites of the corporate-government, global elite with no regard for familiarity of culture, loyalty or lack thereof.

Family, familiar culture and loyalty to the USA are important. The pecuniary desires of globalist slavers are not. Their house of cards is being brought down. The corrupt world as you know it will be gone soon enough.

Nearly all of those with big incomes are direct or indirect recipients of government in this debt regime, and many of them, legalistic robbers.

Friends, avoid buying anything that you don't really need. Become more self-sufficient each month, and learn to manufacture something of necessity as a hobby for now. Starve the beast. Be nonpolitical.

To be honest the president has some discretion in not enforcing a law. The discretion ends for the exhaustive when it comes to actions as apposed to inaction.

To act the president must be authorized by both the Constitution and Congress.

Inaction is the default position.

Valerie Jarette was born in....... Isfahan or Shiraz (sister cities) of central IRAN! As primary adviser to Obambi, this may color some of his actions.

Hillary had and has Al-Qaeda Huma Abedin in her White House, he has Valerie to promote self-serving treachery in his Oval Office.
