Gutierrez: 'I Want to Thank' Obama for Bypassing Congress to Cancel Deportation of Illegals
cnsnews.com ^ | 9-15-11

Posted on 09/15/2011 8:08:44 AM PDT by Justaham

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) thanked President Obama for circumventing the Legislative branch when it comes to immigration law.

Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code makes it a federal crime to be in the United States illegally. Nevertheless, the Obama administration in August directed federal immigration officials to use "prosecutorial discretion" in deciding which illegal aliens to detain and deport.

“We had a president of the United States that recently was speaking at National Council of La Raza who said during his speech, ‘There are those who simply wish me to bypass Congress when it comes to immigration,’ and many in the audience clapped, saying, ‘Yup, bypass Congress…’” Gutierrez told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) conference on Monday.

“He (Obama) said, ‘But I can’t bypass Congress,’ and people in the audience said, ‘Yes you can,’ and you want to know something? They were right -- he could and he did, and I want to thank the President of the United States, and I want to thank all of those that work at the White House for issuing new guidance when it comes to deportations,” Gutierrez added.

(Obama in July told the National Council of La Raza that although the idea of bypassing Congress and changing U.S. immigration laws on his own was “very tempting,” his hands were tied because “that is not how our system works.”)

Now if someone will ask Rick Perry what he thinks of Obama’s actions in this case and make him give a straight up answer that would be interesting.

Obama is better suited to be president or premier of:

1. China
2. Veneszuela
3. Any Arab country
4. And African country other than South Africa

He is neither fit or qualified to be our president. I fear however, that the growing distaste from the left with force him to resign

No Shiite. If we had the senate we’d enough impetus to quash this crap.

Next years uh coming though!

As if backdoor amnesty wasn't enough of an affront to the American people, Gutierrez and LaRaza now feel the need to rub it in our faces. At what point do we take the law into our own hands?

The history of the present King of the United States of America is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

et cetera et cetera et cetera

“There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of
Pharaoh — get first all the people’s money, then their lands, and then make them and
their children servants forever. It will be said that we do not propose to establish kings. I
know it. But there is a natural inclination in mankind to kingly government. It sometimes
relieves them from aristocratic domination. They had rather have one tyrant than 500. It
gives more the appearance of equality among citizens, and that they like. I am
apprehensive — therefore — perhaps too apprehensive — that the government of these
States may in future times end in a monarchy [not called a monarchy but an executive
with monarchial powers]. But this catastrophe, I think, may long be delayed, if in our
proposed system we do not sow the seeds of contention, faction and tumult, by making
our posts of honor places of profit. If we do, I fear that, though we employ at first a
number and not a single person, the number will in time be set aside, it will only nourish
the fetus of a king (as the honorable gentleman from Virginia very aptly expressed it),
and a king will the sooner be set over us.”

-- Benjamin Franklin

The really tragic thing here—and I use the word `tragedy’ intentionally—is that those words were written by subjects, but are being read by presumably free men and women.

I checked again to make sure this post wasn’t from the satire site (`John Semmons’?) and it isn’t.

Our chief hired hand has the effrontery to allow himself to be quoted saying that he actually considered bypassing a coequal branch of government.
Incredible. The founders of this nation would, I think, be mortified to see how corrupted we have become.

Another ad that the GOP should take advantage of while reporting the untold billions these people are costing the taxpayers.

“Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code makes it a federal crime to be in the United States illegally.”

Unfortunately, not correct: this section makes it a federal offense to ENTER the country illegally. The act of being “in the United States illegally” is a civil matter, subjecting the person only to deportation. I’ve presented on this issue a number of times and can never get a straight answer when I ask why “illegal presence” isn’t ipso facto proof of illegal entry (unless there was an overstay on a visa, etc.).

The law needs amending to place the burden on the person who is present without authorization to prove that he or she DIDN’T enter illegally, IMHO.

I’m telling you, this is Obama’s winning strategy. Kiss up to the Hispanics and even grant Amnesty in time for millions of them to register and vote in November of 2012.

Just wow...a Congressman of a co-equal branch of government is happy that his branch has been bypassed to benefit his constituent group.

Can’t wait for the next regime to bypass Congress and physically deport 12 million leeches, including Luis for aiding and abetting human trafficking.

BTW, Guitierrez was one of those who pushed a bill for a non-citizen presidency, also a buddy and recipient re: Rezko, etc..

Another POS. Don’t get me started on him.
