GOP Senator: Obama To 'Effectively End Immigration Enforcement'
The Weekly Standard ^ | 25 Jul 2014 | MICHAEL WARREN

Posted on 07/25/2014 5:56:04 PM PDT by mandaladon

The Obama administration is preparing to effectively "nullify" the immigration laws of the United States through an executive action, says one Republican senator. As Time reported Thursday, President Obama appears prepared to provide millions of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. work authorization via executive orders:

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences.

The activists met privately with the President and his aides June 30 at the White House, and say in that meeting Obama suggested he will act before the November midterm elections. They hope his decision will offer relief to a significant percentage of the estimated 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. “He seems resolute that he’s going to go big and go soon,” says Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-reform group America’s Voice.

But Alabama senator Jeff Sessions, a Republican, says in a statement that the "temporary relief from deportation" would be a de facto ending of immigration enforcement:................True but what can we do about it...and how about our leaders in Congress?

To everyone out there silently wondering exactly what it would take for Obama to be impeached, arrested, or otherwise thwarted in his illegal activities, the answer is apparently nothing.

Dust out the Capitol jail and go get the handcuffs.

This is not only faithless execution, it is willful usurpation of power, and an accessory to multiple felonies.

Obama is pushing for us to impeach him now, before November’s election. He’s trying to create a venue, a crisis he, and the media can turn to condescending ridicule of the TEA party, and specific Republicans who are a danger to their (read Democrat) power.

The list of offenses is long, and incredible, but they own the media, and still have the Senate.

Cause for concern.

Obama has effectively declared himself king; impeachment and conviction is never going to happen even if the GOPe doesn’t blow its chances to take the Senate in November. Obama and his agents are now importing millions of illegal alien foot soldiers. The solution to the present situation will not come from within the present political establishment and not with the present political structure.

He cannot do that, even if he does it. And he cannot skirt the process legally by
claiming for others that they're all refugees.

Congress better get off their ass's and do something.

I fear that America if to F-IN lazy at this point to even care until illegals
are sleeping in their living rooms and raping their daughters.

Every one of those he illegally gives amnesty to can be kicked the hell out
after Obama is kicked out of our Government Housing in DC. If we have a House
willing to kick his ass.

I know this isn’t a religious thread, but I’m convinced more and more that God is judging our nation. Take a look at Israel’s history as recorded in the scriptures. One way God judged Israel was to have her overtaken by foreigners.

If this is indeed God’s Judgment on America, elections aren’t going to matter. All we can do is repent and pray that God will not let our nation be destroyed.

If this is God’s judgment, we are more than deserving of it.

Here’s the upside - everyone in America with a job or looking for a job will feel the effect of this. And since he can’t grant citizenship, the next president have a chance to nullify this executive action

You're right. Will it be 55 million foreigners for the 55 million innocent babies murdered by abortion. Not to mention the pushing of sexual perversion on our children, our nation. The disobedience of Gods laws.

God have mercy and forgive us. Amen.

Exactly!

I know it’s of course been a gradual fall into this cesspool of moral depravity, but look how it’s ramped up since Obama has been president.

You know, I never thought we’d be destroyed from within...never! I also never realized the biggest enemy our nation would ever face would be our own president.

What is the difference between our form of government and a dictatorship, legally? When I was a child we never learned about executive orders in school. We were taught that the president had limited power. Where did all of this power come from?

executive orders

“Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kinda cool,” boasted Clinton presidential aide Paul Begala July 1998. Simply dictate what you wanted to have happen.

Yep, the only solution at this point is regime change.

The United State of America must be disbanded in it's present form.

They can say they won in November because of all the new voters. This is how they’ll cover all the vote fraud.

There is only one way to stop this madness. The house needs to shut down the government. And that includes AF One and the white house staff and the secret service. Just announce that no bills will be paid until Obama is gone. Everyone who depends on a government check will eventually turn.

Correct - how else can one explain America’s complete and utter collapse on so many fronts and the lack of any serious initiative to stop any of it. Hate to be so cynical, but just look around at all the evidence that this is an avalanche that nothing seems able (or willing) to stop.

These are just a few of the calamities that can befall a nation who turns its back on God. The whole of Deuteronomy 28 lists many more curses for disobedience. These are just a few of the ones listed which are more pertinent to immigration.

Deuteronomy 28:33, 43-44, 47-52

33 A people that you do not know will eat what your land and labor produce, and you will have nothing but cruel oppression all your days.

43 The foreigners who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. 44 They will lend to you, but you will not lend to them. They will be the head, but you will be the tail.

47 Because you did not serve the Lord your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity, 48 therefore in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the Lord sends against you. He will put an iron yoke on your neck until he has destroyed you.

49 The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young. 51 They will devour the young of your livestock and the crops of your land until you are destroyed. They will leave you no grain, new wine or olive oil, nor any calves of your herds or lambs of your flocks until you are ruined. 52 They will lay siege to all the cities throughout your land until the high fortified walls in which you trust fall down. They will besiege all the cities throughout the land the Lord your God is giving you.

Where did all of this power come from?

Congress began assigning its constitutional duty to make all laws, to the executive branch in big way under FDR. Along the way, Scotus thought it was cool to make law as well.

When legislative power is exercised by the unelected, despotism is established.

Everything else is irrelevant until this fundamental contradiction and offense to republican government is solved.
