Skip to comments.Amnesty for illegal aliens begins today and Congress couldn't care less
Posted on 08/15/2012 9:39:01 AM PDT by workerbee
This lazy August morning while many Americans are on vacation blissfully detached from current events, one of Presidents Obamas most radical transformations of the American landscape takes hold. A lawless, unlegislated illegal alien amnesty becomes reality today as the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) begins to officially accept applications (no personal interview required) from almost 2 million illegal aliens seeking deferred action.
Americans wont like the amnesty and they wont like how it was done, but theyre not to blame. Only Congress has the power to act against a president who throws the constitutional system into chaos by nullifying the laws Congress has enacted and governs by imperial edicts. Congress is out of town now, but frankly, even when they were in town they were out of touch and unwilling to challenge President Obamas usurpation of their exclusive plenary authority over immigration policy.
Todays amnesty is the dénouement of the backdoor tactics this president has been peddling since taking office and should have been no surprise to Congress.

The policy change exempts those under 30 who are in some kind of educational program or vocational program. I believe that it would cover all 19 (or 21) 911 hijackers! They were all younger and many were taking flight trianing at a professional training center!
It only took a little over 10 years for Americans to “get over it.”
Lady Liberty weeps.
Someone will be along shortly to inform you that jobs are the issue and we shouldn’t trouble the pretty butterfly republicans with this distraction.
This son of a bitch is committing High Treason right out in the open and no one has the motivation to do anything about it.
The only good thing about this is that, after the election and after Obama is gone, the government will have the names and address of over a million illegals.
that will make it easier for congress to send them all welfare checks and healthcare benefits information.
Little barry bastard commie boy is desperate for voters to keep him in power. Not even the Soros owned Spanish vote counting company can fabricate enough votes to suit the criminal DNC, so now they are recruited via faux amnesty which Congress should have nullified but will not.
One would think there should be an actual “opposition party” to raise holy hell over such a case of abject treason. The silence of the GOP is deafening. Makes them appear as a partners in the destruction of this country, and just perpetuates the notion that the elections have become pointless exercises. The elitist GOP-E ruling class wants amnesty, and that’s all that apparently matters.

The GOPe has been ORDERED to allow amnesty by the traitorous Chamber of Commerce.
Proof of Identity
Birth certificate with photo identification
School or military ID with photo
Any U.S. government immigration or other document bearing your name and photo
Proof you came to U.S. before your 16th birthday
Military records (Form DD-214 or NGB Form 22)
Social Security card
Automobile license receipts or registration
It is illegal to work here, join the military, or have a SSN or have a driver's license save for the four states that still issue them. This is a farce. Obama should be impeached.
Our local tv evening news on Monday showed illegals filling out the forms. I take it they could get the forms early or what?
Ever since BJ’s in the White House Office were seen as just a little fun, the country has been in free fall. Children in our schools adopted the behavior within weeks, after all it wasnt sex.
If Congress wanted the borders closed they would close them.
There have been no charges made against the president for violating the law, ostensibly because the Senate would never convict. B$, there is no charges because the GOPe don’t object to what is happening.
Is there a spanish version of the “My EBT” song?
Recess appointments when there was no recess.
Congress did nothing.
Congress does nothing.
Starting war in Syria, handing Egypt to Muslims.
Congress does nothing.
EPA closing coal mines and electric plants
Congress does nothing.
Truman once complained about a do-nothing Congress, if he were alive today he would soil himself at this pack of clowns.
And we’re probably paying for the vocational training,too.
“The Obama policy does not offer a path to citizenship but rather deferred action, a halt to potential deportations. Those who qualify also can obtain a permit to work in the U.S.”
That’s not what their MECHA and La Raza lawyers will be arguing next year: they’re going to use equitable arguments like deterimental reliance, laches and hardship. All of this soothing talk about, `It’s not amnesty (I’m sorry—”path to citizenship” plusungood of me)!’ will be forgotten.
They’re saying it already: “But Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, an Illinois Democrat who has become Congress leader on the issue, said it would be politically impossible for Mr. Romney to overturn what Mr. Obama has done.
I think the young people who sign up for deferred action will be politically bulletproof, he said. Any future president or secretary of homeland security will have one hell of a fight on their hands if they try to deport this contingent of Dream-eligible youth en masse.
“Dream-eligible.” That’s pretty good. Every time they set it up, we knocked it down. Luger lost his job over it ......
The law trumps equity, or it did pre-Obama. Gutierrez says Obama can do it, but Romney can’t undo it.
OK Mittens. It’s crunch time. Whatcha gonna do?
