Obama says to reform immigration on his own, bypassing Congress
Reuters ^ | 7/1/2014 | Jeff Mason and Steve Holland

President Barack Obama said on Monday he would take executive action to revamp the U.S. immigration system and move additional resources to protect the border after hopes of passing broad reform legislation in Congress officially died.

Republican John Boehner, speaker of the House of Representatives, told Obama last week that his chamber would not vote on immigration reform this year, killing chances that a wide-ranging bill passed by the Senate would become law.

The collapse of the legislative process delivers another in a series of blows to Obama's domestic policy agenda and comes as he struggles to deal with a flood of unaccompanied minors from Central America who have entered the United States.

It also sets up a new battle with congressional Republicans, who accuse Obama of going beyond his legal authority to take executive action on issues such as gay rights and equal pay for women and men.

Obama chided Republicans for refusing to bring immigration reform to a vote and said only legislation could provide a permanent fix to the problem.

“The failure of House Republicans to pass a darn bill is bad for our security, it’s bad for our economy, and it’s bad for our future," Obama said in the White House Rose Garden.

"America cannot wait forever for them to act. That’s why today I’m beginning a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own."

It never ceases to amaze how the media, Rooters in this case, can report about Obama like they do and keep a straight face.

Absolutely no shame.

What is the difference whether Congress passes a new law or not?
He won't enforce it anyway.
He'll just do as he pleases as always.

When the Roman republic was formed, any citizen could kill another who declare himself a king.

Roman emperors never used the term “king.”

As we slip further into despotic rule, the American totalitarian will always be called a President.

4. Treason -aiding and abetting the enemy.
5. Releasing dangerous terrorists without notifying Congress within time frame.

We now demand Quartering of the new (diseased) children
into all homes except those of Congress, their Staff,
their families, and of course like ObamaCARE, any Moslem.
The new voters, I mean children, will be immediately housed,
clothed, and cared for, in all American military barracks
and in all homes, inns, livery stables, ale houses, victualing houses,
uninhabited houses, outhouses, barns, and other buildings
at the owners' expense."

"At the foundation of our civil liberties lies
the principle that denies to government officials
an exceptional position before the law and which
subjects them to the same rules of conduct
that are commands to the citizen."

Nothing has prevented this President or any other past President from enforcing the law and doing the right thing.

If he tries to set immigration policy by himself, it will be the end of him. People in this country will not stand still for this, even if the Republicans do.
If he wants to start a revolution, this is it. Let him try it. He will be shocked by the reaction. It will literally start a revolution.

That's the whole point. There's nothing “broken” about our immigration laws except that they haven't been enforced. If the laws were enforced illegal immigrants would eventually self-deport and the rest would be stopped at the border.

I don’t understand! Why do we need NEW legislation just to simply enforce our current laws and fortify our own dang borders?? Have any rules or regs regarding protecting our basic sovereignty expired or something?
