16 Aug What Congress? He Does it Again!
Congress said No, but Obama said, who needs Congress! Once again Obama has simply bypassed the Legislative branch of our government and become the Dictator of America assuming power our Constitution seeks to prohibit. Yes, all Presidents in recent years have used Executive Orders at times, but no President has repeatedly abused the E.O. like this one continues to do. On Tuesday the Obama administration directed young illegal immigrants to fill out new forms and pay $465 if they want to apply under a new program that would let them avoid deportation and obtain a U.S. work permit.
The government renewed warnings that the process wouldn’t lead to citizenship or give them permission to travel internationally. It will begin accepting immigrants’ applications Wednesday.
The paperwork for the program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, can be downloaded from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website, said the agency’s director, Alejandro Mayorkas. Applicants must pay a $465 fee and provide proof of identity and eligibility.
I am not opposed to immigration, but we are either a land of laws or we are not. If our immigration laws mean nothing and can be cherry-picked, then what about the other laws of our land and who gets to decide which we will obey and which ones we will simply ignore?
Just my thoughts.
