Arizona Officials: Obama’s “Backdoor Amnesty” Is “Destruction of Rule of Law”
Gateway Pundit ^ | June 16,2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 06/16/2012 8:52:21 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Arizona officials told reporters today that Barack Obama’s “backdoor amnesty” is “destruction of the rule of law.” The Herald reported:

“It’s a pre-emptive strike against Senate Bill 1070. The timing is unbelievable,” Brewer said.

The Republican governor also said the change means that hundreds of thousands of people will be eligible for work permits and will compete with Americans and legal immigrants for jobs.

Brewer, who recently ordered police regulators to re-issue training material on implementing the Arizona law, said state officials will study the implications of Obama’s move.

“The crux of Senate Bill 1070, of course, is documentation, and what he has done by his announcement today is he’s going to give documentation to nearly a million people that have arrived in our country illegally and not by the rule of law.”

Both Brewer and Former Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce, the chief sponsor of the Arizona law and now president of the Ban Amnesty Now group, characterized the change as a “backdoor amnesty.”

“The effect is just the destruction of the rule of law,” said Pearce, who was upset by Obama’s announcement. “It’s a slap in the face to those who come here legally. It’s a slap in the face to the rule of law.”

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) threatened to sue the Obama Administration over their backdoor amnesty.

In addition to being destructive to the rule of law, it will inject 800K new people into the legal workplace. And, you can bet it will be at least twice the 800K estimate.

:::::::::::::::

Threatened? Yes, it is humouous in a sick and sad way. This is what we have as an opposition party to Obama and his commie ilk. They had better start showing some major fight soon — the SCOTUS on Obamacare, and the committee hopefully about to vote on Holder’s BLATANT CONTEMPT of Congress. To say nothing of the DELIBERATE national security leaks from the White House.

The Congress has let this go way too far.

Hey AZ, you still going to put the forger on the state ballot?

This is your wake up call! The ends justify the means for these marxists. Free and fair elections to be taken over by commie operatives in the key battle ground states in November.

Obama will pull off a Harry Truman victory and the marxists will regain control of the House and Senate. Then you can turn the lights off on America as she was.

If you believe that it's only 800 thousand then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

2 - 3 million, easy.

And that's just Los Angeles County.

Absolutely agree, but I'm waiting for more politicians jump on King's bandwagon and declare it an unConstitutional grab for power by the Executive Branch and sue them up to the USSC.

Holder recently said he wants to avoid a Constitutional crisis while withholding 1000's of documents regarding Fast and Furious. If there were ever a modern Constitutional crisis, this is it!!! The Executive Branch has usurped the Legislative Branch in this pandering move.

WE ARE NOW AT A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS. One branch over-riding another branch authority is as bad as it gets. If this is not resolved in the correct manner, our Republic is gone for good.

Still, the talking heads are arguing the fine points of Bambi's policy. They should be talking about the BALANCE OF POWERS! and how Bambi is destroying it.

Costa Rico is starting to look good. But before that, we're heading to Arizona, ground zero for States' Rights!

Anyone want to buy a nice home in conservative Orange County? Thought not. I just may dump it and get the hell out of Kalifornia.

Hey, old buddy, got ideas for a decent area around you? I'm actually thinking about Flagstaff or if Phoenix area some conservative suburb like Scottsdale. My SO will just have to deal with it. I'm at my last straw and want to live where my rights are still respected.

There is no two ways about it, its either against the law or it isn’t against the law. If it is against the law-—— then why don’t they do something about it. I am dam sick and tired of the belly aching and then it just goes by the way side and nothing is done about breaking the law. I think this guy has something on every one of these people in DC and thats why they let things slide, they are afraid of their past.

And more will now come over the border, get fake identity and period of residency documents which will not be checked. There will be a new tidal wave of immigration and all of them will be legitimized by Obama and they will be instructed on how to vote and who to vote for (and their eligibility to vote will also not be checked).

The states lost the last war for state’s rights.

This time, the state’s cause is just, so maybe the outcome will behoove us as a nation.

On a local level there is a cure for an official who is not carrying out his duty to enforce the law.

Full article at:
http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-writ-of-mandamus.htm

What is a Writ of Mandamus?

Excerpt from article:

A writ of mandamus is a court order which compels someone to execute a duty which he or she is legally compelled to complete. This type of writ can also be used to order a lower court to complete a duty which is assigned by law. The writ of mandamus is rarely used, because it must be demonstrated that there is no other remedy available and that someone is suffering an injustice as a result of the failure to complete a legally required duty. It can also be very disruptive and for that reason judges are reluctant to grant such writs unless they are truly necessary.

There hasn't been "rule of law" since Obama was sworn in. Wasn't it Valerie Jarret who stated that "we'll be ready to RULE on the first day." Not govern. RULE. This is the definition of the difference between the "Rule of Law" and the "Rule of man."

And Obama is a very little, little "man."

Deja Vu: Germany in the 1930s....

There are two differences between the US in 2012 and Germany in 1932. One: we know what happened after that; the Germans of 1932 didn't know what was coming. Two: we are armed; the Germans of 1932 had already been disarmed under Weimar Republic laws.

Take courage and do what is necessary.

To say nothing of the DELIBERATE national security leaks from the White House. The Congress has let this go way too far.

Way way too far, and for too long. It started in early 2011 when caving on the promise to cut $100 BILLION from the appropriations during the Continuing Resolution and following on through with the promise of extracting huge concessions from the WON during the debt ceiling negotiations.

My forecast.....
1) Vote on Contempt for with-Holder will go down in flames as the GOP quakes in their boots at the potential backlash from the media, and
2)SCOTUS will uphold both Obamacare AND the 9th Circus court's hold on AZ SB1070.

The black jesus' daily approval rating on Rasmussen will be back up to -10 (or better) by Wed, June 20, 2012. Obama will be enthralled with his new found power, setting the stage for the complete destruction of law and order in the USA. Complete shredding of our Constitution is on our doorsteps right now (Sat 6/16) - most people are not even grasping the full impact of his latest extra-Constitutional power grab, being all caught up in the touchie feelie good aspects of getting ready to turn themselves into the Fed Govt to get their "papers" not even thinking past tomorrow when a new President can rip those papers to shreds.

Sheriff Joe will continue to arrest illegal aliens in Maricopa county, and the black jesus will be powerless over him, except to harass with the law suits and investigations. All the Big Sis can do is refuse to pick up the illegal aliens, causing the tax payers of Maricopa county to foot the bill for continued incarceration.

The state of Arizona should immediately ask a Supreme Court justice for a restraining order against the executive branch.

While the federal courts cannot compel a president to act, personally, they can most certainly compel agencies and organizations to act, or cite agency heads for contempt and levy substantial fines on that agency.

Fences



Hispanics take notice: these 'toons are from 2010, when obama was pandering to you for votes in the mid-terms...he's doing it again. You're being duped. There are no jobs in America now.

Attention blacks: Remember when the former President of Mexico said, "Mexicans will do the work even blacks won't do."? Well, insofar as the black unemployment rate is already much higher than the rest, how will you feel about your "messiah" obama taking even more of your jobs away by (unlawfully) "pardoning" 800,000 illegals? Yeah...he's "got your back" alright, and shoving his marxist ideology right up it.

With the exception of my 6th great grandfather, John Carpenter (a neighbor, close associate, friend and revolutionary brother in arms of one George Washington) in my paternal grandmother Robinson’s family, my other English and German ancestors waited in sometimes years long lines, got on a hot, crowded, rickety ship, crossed the Atlantic and arrived at Ellis Island.

My wife’s English and Irish ancestors also waited in sometimes years long lines, got on a hot, crowded, rickety ship, crossed the Atlantic and arrived at Ellis Island.

There they were deloused, given a cursory medical exam, interrogated, their immigration papers checked and, with just what they were able to carry, took the ferry to the mainland to begin their lives as “Americans.” Those who did not have a complete grasp of English soon undertook formal and informal of the native language and the rest, as they say, is history.

That’s how it USED TO BE DONE.

The 14th Amendment, INTENDED by the drafters to ONLY grant citizenship to emancipated slaves by overturning the Dred Scott decision, has been tortured beyond recognition by the radical left to also include so-called “anchor babies” born to Latinas who stroll across the border to download junior HERE to bypass all the normal immigration processes described above. As an intern in a San Diego ER, my late niece caught many of those babies as part of her OB/GYN training.

By executive fiat, today Obama just took the first step to COMPLETELY open our borders (trust me, it is the first step only!) His action makes FOOLS of those who, like our great-great grandparents, played by the rules. It also makes fools of those waiting in those overseas lines to come here THE RIGHT WAY!!!

A wag declared that a nation without borders is NOT A NATION!!

A Latino “immigration lawyer” on FNN this morning said that if Congress doesn’t like it, they can change the law. He went on to say “THEY DON’T HAVE THE GUTS.” Sadly, he’s right. But if these clowns on Jenkins’ Hill think those latinos (legal and illegal) are going to vote for the GOP, they should be careful to not let their minds wander: They’re too small to be out alone.

Not that it would do any good, I called my congresscritters’ (202-224-3121) this morning to ask when they plan to offer Articles of Impeachment for this, the Law of the Seas Treaty, the activities of Holder, et al, the waste of taxpayer bucks on the green jobs idiocy, etc., etc. I’ll spare you the entire list as it runs to a few hundred pages. If impeachment is not their plan, I asked them to have the decency to RESIGN as the first branch of this government is clearly no longer needed and Obama could use the bucks saved to help buy the coming “election” or perhaps resume his taxpayer funded World Tour.

Bottom line? If you are STILL unconvinced that this guy is a clear and present danger to YOUR way of life, you probably live in a refrigerator crate behind a vacant warehouse. And if that is NOT your current living condition, re-elect this guy and it shortly will be.

Obama’s “Backdoor Amnesty” Is “Destruction of Rule of Law”

The governments rule of law only applies to legitimate tax payer citizens.

Mexicans who enter the U.S. illegally need not worry about such things as the government rolls out the red carpet for them, offering them prizes, coupons, free medical care, food stamps, social services, education etc, costing tax payers hundreds of billions per year.

In fact, Mexicans are some of the most disrespectful people on the planet, as millions of them they routinely disrespect our borders, rules and laws, knowing the tax payers are paying the bill.

If you read the construct framework of Obama’s conditions, you will find: Under 30, high school dipoma/GED or military, in this country for 5 years, lawful....that is effing it!

We’re not talking ‘children’ here, nor are we talking about those brought here with their parents- UNDER 30!.....

GED a problem? I’d bet my ass there will be GED diploma mills popping in every Mexican Tijuana sidestreet of America! (Don’t act like you don’t know they are there - every city in this country).

Lawful? Does anyone actually think the DOJ, who will administer this treason, is gonna check the NCIC or take finger prints? Don’t count on it one iota!

We are talking probably TENS OF MILLIONS, here not 800,000 or a million. This country is effed if it doesn’t throw that bastard out in November and get its sanity back.

I agree that 800K is a totally B.S. number. Makes for an acceptably deceptive sound bite for the babbling talking heads to spew, however, since under a million sounds like small potatoes relative to a national population of 310 million +.

Once they start processing these "children", the number will be "unexpectedly" revised upward.

Of Course if they are working they wiil have a Right to unemployment if they cant find a Job,and to Union Membership to make sure they have a Safe working enviornment,and a Right to representation, so a right to Vote is Paramount! As a Legal citizen you have a Right to Pay for all of it.
Is it just me or are everyone of Obamas decisions and Policies AntiAmerican? He sues and Prosecutes and Condemns every Traditional American way of Life. This guy is Beyond Pathetic. The Clowns on Cable,the best they can come up with for talking about any of this Crap is,its a Brilliant Political move. The guy just decides he is not going to abide by any law or regulation and tells his Chief Law Enforcement official to NOT enforce laws and sues those who are enforcing laws.
Was it always only this easy to destroy this country? What the Hell took someone so long to do so? More importantly what has Changed to make it so easily accomplished?

I'm actually thinking about Flagstaff or if Phoenix area some conservative suburb like Scottsdale.

Scottsdale is a great place for conservatives. As another poster said a while back, moving here from California feels like moving back to America. If your SO is worried about losing access to California shopping/dining/nightlife she need not - Scottsdale is exactly the same on the high-end side, minus the crumbling infrastructure, the political sleaze factor, and the ill-behaved Amish. And your OC house sale proceeds will go pretty far here - not like Oklahoma, but much better than, say, Palm Springs.

It gets a little hot in the summer - no problem. Keeps the bums out and it's a pretty quick five hour drive to San Diego if you miss the ocean fog. :)

I'm not one ounce concerned about "shopping/dining/nightlife". I'm sure that can be found in the greater Phoenix area, and being older, we really don't care that much.

I want to live in a State that recognizes my rights, as specifically spelled out in the Constitution and supported by the Founding Fathers' numerous correspondence. I've always been a States Rights person above all. I was a founding member of Veterans for Constitutional Restoration (VetsCoR - see sidebar) and later the Chairman. Our mission was minimizing fedgov control and maximizing States' Rights.

Got a good realtor in the suburban areas of Phoenix? Please Freepmail me. My realtor here says I have one of the few properties that would probably sell in a reasonable time. BTW, what would it cost to A/C a 2500 sq ft home in that area during the summer with just 2 occupants who are frugal? Guess I should ask the realtor. Thanks for any input.
