Skip to comments.Obama's move on immigration is an unconstitutional disaster for the unemployed

President Obama thwarted the will of Congress and shunned the 20 million under-employed and unemployed Americans by announcing he will grant work permits to (2 million to 3 million illegal immigrants)
This appears to be an unconstitutional fiat that not only usurps congressional authority to set immigration policy but directly contradicts what Congress has already decided. The president suggests that his new policy is designed to enact as much of the DREAM Act amnesty as possible because Congress hasn't acted on its own. But Congress indeed has acted -- three times in votes that rejected granting these illegal aliens the legal residency and work permits that the president now says he will deal out all by himself.
This is a knee-jerk response to pro-amnesty interest groups that have attacked Mr. Obama with an intense, well-funded public relations campaign urging him essentially to nullify congressional immigration laws because supporters of amnesty know that the elected representatives of the American people won't approve amnesties any more. Until today, the president had said that he couldn't just overturn immigration laws on his own. His capitulation may provide a short-term political payoff among some special interest groups but in the long term will feed the perception that he is much more interested in currying favor among narrow interest groups than addressing the needs of the massive ranks of the unemployed.
The unavoidable fact is that Mr. Obama's announced executive amnesty will increase the supply of legal workers to compete for jobs with the 20 million Americans who can't find a job or have been forced into part-time work. The president may think he can repeal the laws of Congress but he can't repeal the law of supply and demand.

Is OBammy TRYING to instigate rioting among young Blacks who WILL be hardest hit from this policy?
I seriously want to know.
***He does not care. He knows that blacks will support him because he is black. He wouldn’t lose support until he outright starts using the N word to denigrate them. Even then, the blacks use that word to talk to each other and he could easily get away with it. He has blacks in his back pocket. Now he has hispanics and FROBLs. (Free Republic Open Border Lobby)
Milt Rominy’s response on this issue while being ‘interviewed’ by Bob ‘I’m a man, baby’ Shieffer on See BS, was both troubling and interesting. He blocked Schieffer’s reading of the axelrod talking points by saying the EO was the wrong way to deal with the many layers of problems in the immigration deabte and that the writing of legislation by Congress to deal with these layers was the proper way to address them. Schieffer, being the gobsmackable fool he is, was unable to dig any deeper.
Sure, but who's counting?
And more importantly, who's stopping him? Nothing but *crickets* from the GOP peanut gallery.
Apparently little barry bastard commie does not believe its hard for black youths to find a job, so he’s encouraging Latino youths to take all the jobs they can find ... what was that saying, taking the jobs Americans don’t want to do?
Here in Tennessee a leftist democrat loon sued the state to stop the processing of voter registration clean up because he was denied the chance to vote int he primaries (when he went to the wrong location and demanded to be counted). Democrats, the scum afloat on the surface of a rancid pond.
Out of touch? Shirley you jest. He is doing this because he has leaks from the SCOTUS indicating the outcome of the AZ immigration laws. He’s not just ‘in touch’, he’s got inside intel on the Roberts court, probably from the pirate Roberts himself!
It’s not a problem, the immigrants can be just like the rest of the Obama nation and retire at age 18 and collect government benefits for the rest of their lives.
Announce that he had become a Tea Party conservative?
I say, "Vote the bums out!!!!".../s/s/s/s/s/s/s/s/s/s
Bwahahahaha!...good luck. Keep your powder dry.
Obama's move on immigration is an unconstitutional disaster for the illegals. The Congress can now do nothing.
Then the unemployment rate goes over 10. More likely is that the not working are kept off the rolls but the working "Dreamers" are counted at once.
No, but congress is supposed to block it’s implementation. Which they are not.
Oh Damn, busted by the spelling police!
And I used spell-check too.
Mea maxima culpa, I should shoot myself!
Or, I can just plead internet tolerance for minor errors and forget about it.
