Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says President Barack Obama, will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration.
Durbin made the comments at a press briefing on immigration last Thursday urging House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring an immigration bill onto the floor for a vote.
"I don't know how much more time he thinks he needs, but I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today," Durbin said. "And if he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration and he shouldnt be sued as a result of it."

“borrow the power” = dictatorship
Congress should ‘borrow the power’ to nuke Mecca.
Boner will love this. The elites get everything they want without getting their hands dirty.
We need to go back to housing people like Durban in insane asylums.
The enlightened policy of letting them feely walk around among normal people just isn’t working out.
This is just scarey. It sounds like Germany in the 1930’s.
Americans will borrow “Impeachment” power from the Constitution, to solve their Hussein problem.
Crimes and misdemeanors, failure to perform the oath of office, and attempted murder of the Elite’s DNC power in Washington via Losses at the ballot box.
Hit the nail on the head with that. Since the Constitution spells out the powers quite specifically and to which of the three branches can do what, "borrowing" would be a usurpation of anothers power, to wit, abdicating would be the other side of that tyrannical coin.
Exactly. That’s why they don’t even try to oppose him any meanigful way, they get what they want without appearing to have a hand in it.
a) there is no borrowing of power
b) the problem isn’t immigration
c) the problem is illegal immigration
d) enforce the laws or don’t expect anyone to follow them
Borrow the power? What a Dick Turbin is......
Rush talking about it now.
I’d like someone in the press to ask him [I know... but I remember when we really had a press] ... from whom is 0bama planning on borrowing this power from?
I’ve already called a senator (not my own) and said exactly that, that if Obama, illegal immigrants, the IRS, etc, don’t have to follow the law, then neither do I.
What sacred mainstay of Constitutional law will he loot NOW?
Obama will “borrow the power” to do this?
where in the constitution does it say a president can borrow power from anywhere?
Why doesn’t her just “borrow the power to make it illegal to disagree with him?
This gut needs impeached
Obama drives a Russian Lada and Congress drives an ford edsel, the parts are not interchangeable
Good for you - I wish border governors would take that position. Just stop them at the border and return them or jail them.
Who’s going to stop them? Why follow the law if the feds don’t?
I think “borrowing power” is like churches “selling indulgences!”
indicative of the astronomical level of DC corruption. This government is broken and it will not fix itself and the “vote them out” ploy won’t work due to the DC establishment’s reliance on vote fraud. Fixing this mess will require hundreds of thousands of citizen’s physically intervening to remove the criminals from DC and to stop the corruption. At some point it’s earthier do something about it or continue to take what the oligarchy forces on us. And if the people of this country choose the latter, just look at human history, it will get worse.
These freakin’ commies are just brilliant! /s
Borrow the power. Ahhhh, such a warm and fuzzy new term. Where in the checks and balances does it say he can borrow anything? SCOTUS and Congress are bending over further and further and asking for more. I get the feeling he has never returned anything he has borrowed. Heil, hussein!
“Good for you - I wish border governors would take that position. Just stop them at the border and return them or jail them.
Whos going to stop them? Why follow the law if the feds dont?”
I think you are on to something. If the border states did this, you’d see Federal troops on the border over night. Problem is they’d be there to “capture” the states LEOs not stop the incursion from Mexico.
“This is just scarey. It sounds like Germany in the 1930s.”
This is what democracy looks like.
The Senate Democrats would pass an enabling act right this very day, if they could.
1. Secure the borders.
2. Everyone in the country illegally has 60 days to leave the US. This would include pregnant illegals.
3. Those who refuse and are caught in the country after 60 days will be returned to country of origin with no chance of ever returning ... ever.
4. Those from #2 wishing to return must pay a fine, demonstrate proficiency and/or willingness to learn English, must possess skills deemed critical to the welfare of the US, and go through the normal process of becoming a citizen. Others need not apply.
While there are major issues with such a simplistic approach ... the basic outline would rid us of the unwanted welfare class from other countries.
Which is precisely why the 'Rats want them - their future base voters.
I damn near went through the roof of my car. ABC neglected to mention Obama intentionally CREATED this disaster with unilateral action.
Scum sucking marxist *sskissing liars in the press make me wanna vomit.
And the list of these kinds of people seems to be getting very long indeed.
Constitution? Obamugabe don’t need no steenkin’ Constitution. Constitutional checks and balances -— so last century....
I have this creepy feeling that, if Obama were to ASK if he could borrow the power, this group of GOP idiots, led by Boehner and McConnell, would say, ‘Sure, no problem...’
I would not be surprised to learn that such a conversation had already taken place behind closed doors.
We don't. Let His Divine Imperial Majesty Barackula dissolve that misguided body, and rule (in His infinite wisdom) without interference from mere mortals ...
What an idiot that Durbin is.
What if after lending baraq that power, then baraq borrows the power to eliminate the Senate? They what will the dims do? They have created a monster and don’t realize that he could very easily turn on them. baraq doesn’t consider himself as a citizen of the US, but as a citizen of the world. Just look at what he is currently unleashing on our country.
Due in is an intellectual and moral leper He should be made to wear a bell
Durbin = JarJar Binks
Obama = Emperor Palpatine
Just jumped right out at me the similarities...
