Skip to comments.Obama's Amnesty and Affirmative Action
Posted on 06/22/2012 3:49:47 PM PDT by neverdem
Many readers are by now well aware of Mr. Obama's decision to confer what amounts to amnesty upon a certain class of illegal immigrants.
According to Mr. Obama, Congress didn't act (apparently settled immigration law doesn't constitute action), so Mr. Obama decided to unilaterally create what amounts to legislation that never passed (the DREAM act.) What an affirmative actor!
The constitutional infirmities of this decision are pronounced and involve the functional equivalent of the repeal of statutory schemes by the executive (for good summaries, click here and here).
President Mr. Obama's justification for his unconstitutional policy edict presents conservatives with an opportunity to begin unwinding a grotesque policy that has, for many decades, been enormously...
What we are talking about with regard to Mr. Obama's immigration edict is a malignant constitutional violation the main justification of which should -- given the pernicious and self-serving hypocrisy displayed in regard to matters touching on race -- infuriate any defender of individual liberty.
The national "discourse" on race is utterly dominated as to time, place, and subject matter by people who control the executive branch, a big chunk of the MSM, and much else besides. Such people have the nerve to shrilly denounce as racists millions of Americans who dare to ask a question or two of a tyrant, who have capitulated to culturally decadent affirmative programs that by design discriminate on the basis of race, and who now demand nothing more -- and nothing less -- than equal protection of the law.
It is time to ask: how much racism really remains in our society when these things are true, and from where does the racism that really remains very frequently emanate?
Mr. Obama's unconstitutional decision of June 15 kicked millions of Americans in the teeth in more ways than one.

Wait: His term isn’t over yet.
If he does will Republicans object?
Doubtful is right. Maybe if Obama murdered a widow on TV, maybe Boehner would.......nah, he wouldn’t....
Marxists give each other the best advantages in career opportunities. They take care of each other at our expense while we play fair.
Maybe it is just a personal thing with me but...all these pundits and commentators talking about something that is "unconstitutional" leaves me cold. Nothing is unconstitutional until ruled so by SCOTUS! Do the opponents have the gonads to challenge this in court to get it ruled unconstitutional - NO!
” Do the opponents have the gonads to challenge this in court to get it ruled unconstitutional - NO! “
Not so. McCain Fiengold got defanged , but it took two different cases and many years. You need the right case, and SCOTUS has to agree to accept it. Why waste all that time and energy when the general election can reverse it.
