Above The Law (POTUS Goes Rogue)
American Rattlesnake ^ | August 19, 2011 | Gerard Perry

Posted on 08/19/2011 9:34:25 PM PDT by OddLane

The Obama reelection campaign has begun in earnest with the announcement yesterday that the administration will henceforth be ignoring the expressed will of Congress, its Constitutional obligations, and the desires of the American public. In a move that President Obama’s functionaries have been telegraphing for months, and which was made official yesterday, the White House has announced that it will be “reviewing” the cases of individuals who are in the process of deportation, or who are subject to deportation, in what is effectively a sweeping amnesty for nearly all illegal aliens currently residing in this country. The Wall Street Journal has a brief summary of who is now eligible for the amnesty jackpot, including a description of the aforementioned Morton memo, but a better question is, “who isn’t eligible?”

Although much of the media is framing the issue as one of the admistration implementing the DREAM Act that an anti-immigrant faction of Congress was loathe to enact, the truth is that this decision is much broader and encompasses more than simply potential DREAM recipients, which as Hans von Spakovsky points out on the Heritage Blog is itself a blatantly unconstitutional act.

I think it’s past time to get this marxist OUT of the WH. He took and oath which he has now spat on. He and his admin. need to be removed. They need to do something before he declares himself president for life. I do not put it past him.

This move would only be cool when Rick Perry does it.

So how does this work? Is this just for illegals who have been caught and are about to be deported or can an illegal just walk in off the street, turn themselves in and get a work permit?

When does Congress decide his behavior is impeachable? Two American border agents shot dead as a result of Fast and Furious which he and Holder think the Easter Bunny thought up (he coyly said he was working under the radar to subvert the Second Amendment). Now he knows nothing and because he’s black and Holder, too, they’ll get away with murder. Every day he comes up with another way to shove his communist plans down America’s collective throat, and every day we do nothing. All Clinton did was lie about sex in the oval office, but he was impeached. Of course he sold the country down the river to China, but that’s another story.

WHY OBAMA DID IT:

Gallup: Latino Approval of Obama Plunges to 49%

Hispanic-Americans are souring on the Obama presidency, according to a Gallup poll that shows just 49 percent of them approve of his job performance.

That’s a huge decline since spring of 2009, when Obama registered the 85 percent approval among Latinos.

Since that high water mark, Obama’s job performance ratings with Hispanics has been sliding downward. It reached a nadir of 45 percent in late July but has made a slight comeback since then, according to CNSNews.com.

The survey was conducted before Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano’s announcement Thursday that the department no longer will depart illegal aliens who meet certain criteria, such as attending school, having family members in the U.S. military, or who are primarily responsible for other family members’ care.

"what is effectively a sweeping amnesty for nearly all illegal aliens "

This is just like the administration announcing that it will not enforce DOMA, which is the law of the land.

The justice department picks and chooses which laws to enforce. Sort of like a dictatorship.

They have been working up to this for over a year now. They will use a tactic called “Parole in Place.”

The Illegal will be arrested, sign a paper admitting guilt, then paroled in place (this nation) for a short time. Then they are eligible for citizenship and voting rights.

That’s how Zero will win the next election.

I was told this by a govenment person who is in the know. They are sick about this.

COSTING US BILLIONS

Academia and the piss-steam media say that immigration of any kind is good for the economy. They insult Californians, Arizonians and other states who are burdened with an influx of poverty, which they are forced to sustain. U.S. taxpayers subsidize illegal immigration and pad the pockets of businesses addicted to cheap labor. Taxpayers at the state and local levels bear the brunt, providing $84 billion in services annually.

Here's the federal expenditures:

Education $2,107,800,000

Medical Emergency medical care $250,000,000
Fraudulent use of Medicaid $1,235,000,000
Medicaid cost of childbirth $1,238,100,000
Medicaid for children $1,626,800,000
Other medical outlays $1,600,000,000

Law enforcement 
State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) compensation $330,000,000
Federal incarceration $678,400,000
Byrne grants $24,300,000
Detention and removal $2,545,000,000
Project safe neighborhoods $39,500,000

Residual ICE functions $2,824,000,000
Exec. office of immigration review $222,500,000
Southwest border prosecution $33,000,000
National guard $642,000,000
Coast Guard $500,000,000

Public assistance Free and reduced meal program $2,264,600,000
Temporary assistance to needy families $1,030,000,000
Housing assistance programs $637,000,000
Child care & development fund $633,000,000
Public Assistance Subtotal $4,564,600,000

TOTAL $28,645,400,000

Yes — he did it. Yes, it’s unconstitutional, unlawful, against the will of the Congress and We the People. And? No one can or will do a thing about it....

I'm not a fan of Governor Hair, as you can see , but I don't think he would do something this patently illegal, if-God forbid-he became President.

The lawlessness of Obama-and Charles Krauthammer pointed this out on yesterday's Fox All-Star panel-is something unprecedented.

Watch for amnesty before 2012, and then watch for all those who were granted amnesty the right to vote.

This is what they are banking on to re-elect Obama.

Just for the sake of argument , let’s say just 1 in 10,000 illegals is a terrorist cell from the Mideast ( mustache and sombrero most Americanos couldn’t tell the difference ) ...There’s around 30 million illegals in the country now . That would give us 3,000 terrorists cells on the mainland - 48 states . Averages out to 62 per state . We all saw what a handful did on 9-11 . Think about it ...

No, there are only 12 million undocumented residents, probably much less, since many have returned whence they came, since the recovery summer.

That’s how Zero will win the next election.

And if he doesn't win those poor saps will not be hireable becaise they are on parole. I don't think they will come in.

This is what I don't get.

The people defending this policy claim that it's not amnesty because these illegal aliens won't be granted citizenship.

They won't be granted citizenship because the executive branch doesn't have the authority to do that.

But the President doesn't have the power or authority to do this!

So what's the obstacle, practically speaking, to him issuing an executive order to that effect sometime before November 2012?

If we let him get away with this, there is no legitimate government!

"...there is no legitimate government."

The ideal form of government for a bunch of subjectivists.

Perfect for Obama.

Isn’t there a job program attached to this also? Maybe not the worst aspect of it but it sure is a poke in the eye to unemployed Americans.

They'll be allowed to seek work permits, as Numbers USA points out.

Technically, someone who's granted deferred action would normally be able to do the same.

The problem is that those are individual cases, not hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of illegal aliens granted de facto amnesty.

The unemployment rate among foreign-born and unnaturalized residents is lower than that of U.S. citizens, FWIW.
