Obama May Consider Deferring Deportation for Millions [Presidential Oath Reduced To A Joke!]

By REBECCA KAPLAN CBS NEWS July 30, 2014 Obama May Consider Deferring Deportation for Millions

The White House is reportedly weighing unilateral steps President Obama could take to defer the deportation of anywhere from 550,000 to 4.4 million of immigrants living in the U.S., a move that would be sure to infuriate Republicans.

According to the Wall Street Journal, top White House officials have discussed the potential for executive action in a series of meetings with stakeholders who support such a move, including faith leaders and immigrant advocates and some lawmakers.

Two possibilities under discussion would protect people who have U.S. citizen children, the paper reports. Extending protection, and perhaps work permits, to anyone who has children who are legal U.S. citizens (usually because they were born here) could exempt about 4.4 million people from deportation, according to statistics from the National Foundation for American Policy. A more limited path would be to just include parents of children who have been accepted into the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Those children fall within a particular age range and length of residence in the U.S., so the number of parents is estimated at 550,000 to 1.1 million.

Look at all of those freeloading ‘RAT voters! They’re the people Alexis de Toqueville warned us about. Coming to the land of the BIG Pinata.

As for Obama’s oath, he has to answer to God directly for breaking it, since he’s the leader of the country.

If Obama wages war on the United States, and cannot be impeached, or is impeached but cannot be convicted, and if the attempt to remove him from office arouses enough zombies as to give the House back to the baby-murdering party, then the American People will have committed suicide, proving that they no longer deserve to be free, or even to live.

I don’t care what the Kenyan calls it, it’s AMNESTY for freeloading, criminal invaders who don’t give a **** about any American laws. Americans are playing by the invaders’ rules now whether they like it or not.

Obama obeys one oath and one oath only. His oath to CPUSA. In his youth, Barry was coached by Frank Marshal Davis (who may have sexually abused him) to be a communist infiltrator for CPUSA.

When the president has no intention of fulfilling his oath he forces God to witness his lie.

God can never be a partner in a lie.

To put God in such a position causes the person to have a curse laid upon his head.

If I was the White House, I would not worry too much. Bonehead has
already said the house will not impeach, nor use the power of the purse.

Maybe Bonehead will file another lawsuit to nowhere.

At 4.4 million, that exceeds the entire populations of:

New Hampshire 1,323,349
Rhode Island 1,051,511

Delaware 925,749
South Dakota 844,877

Just Republicans? Try most of the American people, especially when they realize these lawbreakers will be receiving work permits.

There will be a tsunami of illegal aliens storming across the border similar to what DACA brought. When you reward something, you get more of it.

Why is the White House putting this out there? Trial balloon.

They are testing to see how their base will take the news. If this means more state legislatures go GOP my guess is they will back off.

The thousands who demonstrated against this policy in MA tells me it is very unpopular even in blue states

Unfortunately Obama is the second amnesty pushing President in a row who believes he has no obligation to deport illegals.

I can only think of a handful of cases where their overreaching negatively affected them, however.

You can muck up quite a bit and quite often as long as you've got a fawning press and an idiot electorate on your side.

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.

A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.

From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

...Sadly this is coming true right in front of out eyes.

Then what? - seriously?

Then nothing happens and Obama legalizes a voting bloc for the democrats that makes LBJ's move look like a summer stroll in the park - how many divisions does the court have? - yes, the Republic would be null and void and we would be in a lawless dictatorship. He might not even grant us an election in 2016 - he'd just refuse to step down. Why not? Who's going to make him, the Capitol Police?

I agree. They’re getting a lot of fundraising traction over the ‘they’re going to impeach him!’ manufactured hysteria, but not the results they expected, I think, from the immigration issue.

Sensing nothing happens, its unlikely the SC will take up this transgression. The political remedy is impeachment even if not feasible. The republic is trapped in a corner. This is something neither the Framers nor later leaders and Congress foresaw- a blatant violation of his constitutional oath of office. Community organizers don’t understand what an oath means.

I actually watched one of them unfold back when the Iraq war started in 2003. I was watching live coverage of the San Francisco protests (when the old hippies who had slid into disco demons and then into rank capitalists decided because a Republican was President they wanted to be hippies again). All was going well with the shouting and the signs until some of the old hippies (the real ones, not the ones who became disco demons and then capitalists and then decided they wanted to recapture their youth and impress girls because they were again War Protestors) began actually and rather enthusiastically defecating while the live news cams were rolling. The live news cams were suddenly shut down, and nobody mentioned those protests for a long time. THAT was overreach.

He certainly is TALKING a lot about this. I wonder why he is mouthing off so much? Does he want to be impeached? Does he want to be stopped? Does he just want the credit for trying? It is very odd.

??? It is no overreach whatsoever.

There is absolutely nothing on the horizon that will stop the flood of scummy illegals invading our Republic.

If it is as you say, a bridge too far. what the heck do you think will happen?? Answer -- absolutely nothing.

These illegal criminals know our Republic is being destroyed -- they are more than happy to help bring about its destruction.

In 2017, Boehner will still be a traitorous SOTH and McConnell will likely be a useless leader too.

The only thing that will change will be a further acceleration of our Republic's destruction.

It is truly checkmate for our Republic.

And something that isn’t receiving a lot of attention, I don’t think, but that is at least as important a consideration as anything—the precedent. This will establish that the United States of America is ‘wide open.’ Having to repeat ‘65 in ‘86 was bad enough. But if we do it again, the world concludes: “The mighty Americans can’t even control their own border.”

I have called and berated Congressional staffers over our treasonous Congress. I am convinced they laugh at their constituents.

I fear there is nothing that can be done to stop the destruction of our Republic.

I have written in the past how States hold the key to a peaceful rollback of the Federal government. I am too tired to reiterate it now.

To be brief, we do need Governors with a true Warrior for Liberty mindset -- one or more who are fearless in standing up to the evil Federal Leviathan.

Sadly, Perry and ALL other governors are extremely weak and contemptible human beings.

The Governors have the power to act but they are too weak to risk 1/1,000,000 of what the Founders put on the line.
