Obama makes election-year change in deportation policy (desperation time for Waldo!)
The Hill ^ | 06/15/2012 | Jonathan Easley and Jordy Yager

Posted on 06/15/2012 9:01:37 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway

The Obama administration announced Friday it will stop deporting illegal immigrants who come to the country at a young age.

The politically charged decision comes as Obama faces a tough reelection fight against Republican Mitt Romney, with Hispanic voters in swing states seen as a key bloc.

The change in policy could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States illegally not only to remain in the country without fear of being deported, but to work legally, according to a senior administration official speaking to reporters Friday.

Denying the rule of law is Obama’s specialty.

Only if someone grabs a hammer and starts pounding.

This guy is desperate and shameless!

Sheriff Joe has already responded and says he will bust them until it is law.

Obama is a low-life bent on destroying America. He is a traitor to the Constitution, which I doubt he's ever even read (if in fact he CAN read). FUBO

Yeah, who needs congress or the rile of law when you can just wave your hand like a dictator and make it so.

What a douche bag idiot.

This obviously political ploy to garner hispanics will not help him with blacks in North Carolina and Michigan. But the democrat party is all about appealing to groups instead of appealing to individuals. And that will hang them.

I think Obama screwed the pooch.

If this don’t cause the majority of democrats to vote for someone else or stay home during election day, then he can pretty much get away with anything.

DICTATOR Obama is in full panic mode. I think this will cost him far more than he hopes to gain.

No kidding.

My wife just walked into the room and asked me what's going on in the world, and I could barely sputter out an answer.

I am near true rage right now.

Il Douchebag does it again! He thinks it’s good to be the king!
Romney should fire back right away that we are a country of laws and that the POTUS cannot do whatever he wants just because he feels like it. He should also directly confront Obama and tell him: “You work for the people of the USA. You are not a dictator, or a king. This is not some banana republic, this is the USA!”

...could allow as many as 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States illegally... but to work legally.

And how will this help the available jobs for citizens and legal immigrants?

Will 800,000 be added to those looking for work?

How many, besides me, see this as a serious act of Tyranny and that if it is allowed to stand sets a precedent that renders the Constitution and any hope of the rule of law to be sustained TERMINATED?

How can the either the Legislative or Judicial Branch allow this to stand unanswered?

To me this is the most blatant and serious ursurpation of power we have yet seen. It is a brazen action of a DICTATOR.

I have thought about this since it was announced, at least two hours. Today, I am not just angry and alarmed, I have been that way now for four years, I am afraid. It is no laughing matter as Limbaugh is treating it.

“Young” is now defined as “Under 30”.

Being an illegal alien himself, Obama has a soft spot for those 30 year old children.

The guy is not even legally President. Why would he care about the rule of law or the Constitution?

A big “told you so” to all the after-birthers. Enjoy your usurping dictator.

If this isn't an impeachable offense, then nothing is.

The FIRST member of the House that demands IMPEACHMENT and formally gets the ball rolling will then become my new FAVORITE representative.

Wonder who it will be...?

How can it be anything else?

The rule of law is dead now if this is allowed to stand. It must be stopped on the grounds of right and wrong, not a matter of political ideology but it can’t. The rules have been thrown out and too few would recognize that it is not a matter of who will or won’t allow this or thinks it is a nice thing or not. They would not understand or want to understand that it really is a matter of law that we all must live under for the greater good.

Our very sovereignty has been declared null and void today. We have become a nation without borders which is no nation at all.

I do not see how the Chief Justice can be quiet on this. If he is, his position means nothing does it? Without law there is no need for SCOTUS.

Exactly.

Without law, there is also no need for lawmakers.

All that's needed is a dictator.

It's evident America now -- for the moment -- has one.

I am sure this move was pre-cleared through the GOP hierarchy and had been in the works for a long time.
