Lindsey Graham: Obama Immigration Move ‘Possibly Illegal’
cnsnews ^

Posted on 06/15/2012 3:40:39 PM PDT by tsowellfan

(CNSNews.com) - Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took to Twitter Friday to attack President Obama’s move to grant effective amnesty to young illegal immigrants:

He was among the first lawmakers to react to the surprise announcement.

“President Obama’s attempt to go around Congress and the American people is at best unwise and possibly illegal,” he tweeted.

Graham, a former Air Force prosecutor, said the move, “regardless of motivation, will entice people to break our laws.”

While Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano insisted the program “is not amnesty,” other senior administration officials admitted that the program will stop illegal immigrants from being deported, even if a judge has already ordered it.

On the same Friday conference call in which Napolitano said the program was not amnesty, the senior administration official said that the program would eliminate some illegal immigrants from the “universe of people subject to immigration enforcement.”

In other words, the program would prevent some illegals from being deported – effectively granting them amnesty.

In order to qualify for this effective amnesty, an illegal immigrant must have entered the U.S. when they were less than 16 years old, have lived here continually for at least five years, not have been convicted of a felony, serious misdemeanor, or multiple misdemeanors, be enrolled in or have graduated from a U.S. high school or have a GED, have served honorably in the military, and be less than 30 years old.

Can somebody please explain what the word ILLEGAL means???? And how you can be ILLEGAL and be LAW ABIDING????

The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives.

DISGUSTED!!!

Possibly?

Curious, what will happen in regards to all the stolen identities these people are using? (after all, how do they get jobs, into school, buy houses, drive cars, etc, without having a legal ID?)

Graham’s probably just upset that Obama will get credit for giving these lawbreakers amnesty and he won’t.

‘Possibly Illegal’

One does not have to be a Constitutional Professor to understand the assault by King Barry on the very foundation of this once great nation.

Actually, Mr. Obama’s action is patently self-serving. He has just ‘legalized’ himself.

I have no doubt as I scribe this, he and his crack team of WH lawyers have already filled out his I-94 and provided the requisite accompanying paperwork.

Some resident aliens (people who are here legally and have green cards)can serve in the military. Illegal aliens cannot enlist in the military unless they enlist fraudulently. I am sick of the b.s. stories about heroic “undocumented immigrants” serving honorably in the military. It doesn’t happen.

While probably permanently banned from WH grounds, at least through January 21, 2013, that Daily Caller reporter has my full congratulations and my comment that he must be dragging some pretty big ones!.....

The only thing I wish he’d done is after Obama interrupted his question is to reply, “You, sirrah, are NOT King; and, I am NOT your subject!”

The same rules do not apply to the illegals. In the school district where we reside in CO, the only documentation that an illegal immigrant needs to enroll their illegal immigrant child into the system is proof of an address (like an electric bill). They even get to sign the waiver for immunizations (religious purposes is the answer I believe they give) if they didn’t illegally cross the border and obtain free US healthcare before the kid could catch up on their shots. They can buy a car cash and they sure the heck don’t purchase insurance or pay for registration and use some of their “friends” plates. When you have no respect for rule of law for the country where you illegally reside, all things are possible.

The reporter who asked the question about American jobs was the only person in this country to stand up to this tyrant. Where is Rand Paul and Jim De Mint? Next student loans to be forgiven.

Second to winning another 4 years that would be the next reason he did this (if not for him then for his illegal uncle and whoever else in his family is in the USA illegally).

The question of Obama's eligibility to be President because of possible issues concerning his citizenship is in the courts right now.

Should Obama recuse himself from making any decisions on immigration?

***************************************************************
“Tough” words (actually “tepid” at most) from Lindsey. Of course, as usual, Graham will be all words and NO ACTION.

I’d advice Lindsey to keep in touch with Richard Lugar. Graham may need to get some suggestions for post-Senate life after he’s voted out in the 2014 South Carolina primary by either Tim Scott or Nikki Haley (they should get together and “flip” to see who will have that honor—we don’t want to have the true-conservative vote split).

To: An American!

this is a way for berrie to get rid of the PARENTS of the young illegals. Think about it, the youngsters come forward and say that’ mommie brought me here when I was 5” he or she gets to stay and mommie gets deported.

Start saying that on the radio and let it get to the illegal population and they will not come forward and if they vote, they will vote againest berrie.

Maybe it really is a way to get them to come forward and let ICE get them and their families.

SPREAD THE RUMORS!!!!

No, these amnesty supporters like to blur the lines between legal immigrants and illegal aliens. We do have a program to expedite citizenship for green card holders who join the military. That is far different than having illegal aliens join the military.
