Obama slips DREAM Act amnesty past Congress
wnd ^ | 6/25/11 | Drew Zahn

Posted on 06/27/2011 5:14:48 PM PDT by tutstar

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.

Ice was not deporting many anyway. ICE is now not doing a job that an American would do.

There can be no extension of the debt limit, nor any budget, unless and until this EO is rescinded.

Obummer thinks America is an autocracy. He should be impeached and jailed.

Congress will howl with protest when the White House issues a memo authorizing the immediate extralegal imprisonment and/or execution of all of its members. Every fledgling totalitarian state has its “deer in the headlights” moment when the useful idiots exceed their expiration date.

Most people who speed don't get tickets. The executive branches of countless cities, counties, states, and federal jurisdictions are tacitly approving speeding by not fully, or even minimally, enforcing the law.

People who want to get drugs, pretty much get them at a reasonable price. This can only be happening because local, state, and federal officials are tacitly allowing drugs to get from dealers to customers.

Credit card companies allow lots of fraud and make up the difference by jacking up the interest charges and penalty fees to their trustworthy customers. Therefore, I guess it is OK to commit credit card fraud since the card companies seem to have alternate ways to deal with it.

The Obama administration and its acolytes are innocently noting that "prosecutorial discretion" is not a new idea--in fact, those of all political stripes use it--but the simple fact remains that this is an obvious attempt at an end run around Congress' refusal to go along with Harry Reid's "Dream Act" last year.

And that is hardly in keeping with the (usually sound) doctrine of prosecutorial discretion...

These so called “executive orders” to my recollection were first used by GW Bush. I thought they were an impeachable offense then, and I consider them an impeachable offense now with Obama.

The President has no right to circumvent the Constitutional process of the Congress and Judiciary. Any president who does this needs charged and impeached to make sure it never happens again. Presidents who wage unilateral war represent another reason for impeachment. There are those in DC who control our Congress who wish to keep these issues under wraps, and they will pull strings to make sure neither Party goes after this behavior. This is what we should worry about.

Because Bush was a Republican does not mean he deserved a pass on impeachment and neither does Obama.

I’ll have a real life example in 2 weeks or so. Guy I work with lives with a hispanic lady (3 years or better and legal immigrant/citizen). Her niece got popped for driving with out insurance, drivers license, etc. Niece is illegal. she got 18 days more in jail, after serving a month(?). She will be turned over to ICE when she gets out. 3 kids by 2 different daddies. anchor kids. My bet is she never is deported.

Tell you what’s next: PIP Parole in Place

They will zip through all the formalities of law enforcement (OStyle) and allow them parole in the US; then they become instant citizens. And then, instant voters.

Watch for it!!!

Out in the real world, when you stop doing your job you get fired.

Boehner should take the floor and proclaim that the taxpayers can no longer afford to pay do-nothing ICE agents to stand around and watch crimes take place.

Introduce a bill to defund ICE and reapportion its funds to the states. Maybe they'll take their jobs more seriously.

In all actuality, in his mind and by his actions, Republicans are simply worn out rumple strips to go over....same with Congress. They are all simply "present".... Thug-ocracy reins.

You’re close to the correct answer. there should be no raising of the debt limit period. This is how we fight the CW2; hence, my tag line. The days of playing nicey nice are over as far as I’m concerned.

he didn’t “slip” anything past anybody. The Oligarchy is gonna need votes to override Flyover Country’s threat of Constitutional Government. This is one piece in the puzzle preventing that. Boehner et al winked and chuckled.

You'll get no argument from me. I know Bush was pro-military and a lot of other things. But in my opinion, he was the biggest failure of a Republican president we've had in my lifetime.

The closest I have ever come to getting banned from FR was in 2006 when I called GWB "Jorge".

But Bush is gone and we now have Obummer. And I do believe he should be impeached.

This really pisses me off.
I was sailing in the San Juan Islands with friends recently, and got boarded by the Coast Guard.
They were very nice, but we had to hand them our ID- even though we were sailing in US waters- so they could run a Border Patrol check.
They even asked my husband to show his neck, because someone who had a similar name- with a criminal record- had neck tattoes.
US citizens have to go through this BS, and illegal aliens get a free pass once they are on US soil?
Is there a place, anyplace, that I can retire to? The US is turning into a police state against its own citizens, while handing out the welcome mat to illegals.

That's what I'm screaming about. Not only do they never see the horse until he's left the gate—they don't know the horse is there. They should always expect the worst from the socialist. When will they learn—I know, I know. :>)

I am not trying to be a smart aleck with my question but I am confused about something and hope you can help to clarify.

This article is about an executive order O signed and so I don’t understand the change by mods to ‘chat’ category. is there a guide on the site here to help freepers know where to post what. IMO this topic is more important for people to see than “Bachmann launches campaign” or “Sunday talk show thread” or “earthquake in Alaska”. If FR is about activism but the threads which have topics that would notify others about issues they need to call their congress critters about are hidden then we aren’t able to fully utilized FR for such activism.

If people don’t know this has taken place then no one will know they need to raise cain with their Senators and Reps.
Something similar regarding the amnesty executive order was posted on FR using a different source a couple days prior to this post I made. I never saw it because of the category it was in. I found out about this on the radio and was totally shocked it wasn’t on the front line here at FR.

Is there a secret I’m not aware of or something? Would it be possible to create a category that was totally geared to activism and didn’t include news?

There are so many things occurring now that are not good in the USA and if we don’t find out about it here or talk radio we’re not going to be able to make as big a difference in our nation.
