Amnesty by Executive Order?

Will our wannabe dictator never stop? First he refuses to seal the border without Immigration Reform, but if that doesn't work, he may have plans to go around congress entirely and issue an Executive Order granting amnesty to millions in this country illegally.

Do I sound a bit alarmist? Eight senators don't think so. Sens. Grassley, Hatch (R-Utah), Vitter (R-La.), Bunning (R-Ky.), Chambliss (R-Ga.), Isakson (R-Ga.), Inhofe (R-Okla.), and Cochran (R-Miss.) sent a letter to the regime on June 21.
Dear President Obama:
We understand that there’s a push for your Administration to develop a plan to unilaterally extend either deferred action or parole to millions of illegal aliens in the United States. We understand that the Administration may include aliens who have willfully overstayed their visas or filed for benefits knowing that they will not be eligible for a status for years to come. We understand that deferred action and parole are discretionary actions reserved for individual cases that present unusual, emergent or humanitarian circumstances. Deferred action and parole were not intended to be used to confer a status or offer protection to large groups of illegal aliens, even if the agency claims that they look at each case on a “case-by-case” basis.

While we agree our immigration laws need to be fixed, we are deeply concerned about the potential expansion of deferred action or parole for a large illegal alien population. While deferred action and parole are Executive Branch authorities, they should not be used to circumvent Congress’ constitutional authority to legislate immigration policy, particularly as it relates to the illegal population in the United States.

The Administration would be wise to abandon any plans for deferred action or parole for the illegal population. Such a move would further erode the American public’s confidence in the federal government and its commitment to securing the borders and enforcing the laws already on the books.

We would appreciate receiving a commitment that the Administration has no plans to use either authority to change the current position of a large group of illegal aliens already in the United States, and ask that you respond to us about this matter as soon as possible.


  1. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama tries something like this, but I honestly believe the SCOTUS would overturn such a move! Obama as of this time doesn't have the high court in his back pocket!

  2. I don't want to even get in a situation where we have to leave it to the courts. The court in LA overturned the drilling moratorium and the regime is just going to figure out how to go around that one too.

  3. This evil dictator will STOP AT NOTHING to push his horrid agenda's, Kristin. Especially now, he knows people are wising up to what a commie he is, it's only going to get worse. Grrrrr!

    I'm glad we have cute animals to distract us from all the horror.

  4. Just one of many economic musings about such an un-American move that would be on Husseins part;

    What would it cost to 'document' each and every illegal alien that were to recieve "amnesty"?

    Now a social musing;

    Will this "amnesty" be for just the illegal aliens from Mexico or extend to all no matter the nation of origin? If just the former would that not be racist?

  5. I'm sorry, I'm glad the Senators wrote the letter, but I would have been happier if they had sounded like they had a back bone.

  6. I've been hearing rumblings about this, surely he will not proceed. But nothing Obama does surprises me any more.

    Right Truth

  7. I think that the left sees this as the only way to overcome the 20-40-40 demographic. Otherwise, they're toast.

  8. Thanks Kristin,

    Everything in the Obama Whitehouse comes through the backdoor including the man's soul. Nothing is outside the realm of choice for this one (lower case "O" intended) as he has no conscience, it having been destroyed during academia and fairy tale living.

    Be sure that when the Amnesty comes it will include illegals from every nation on earth including those enemies of ours that have already gone AWOL from Military Bases or whom have come to visit and never gone home.

    The right hand is showing you Mexico while this magician pulls "Whatever" out of his pocket. Pay attention. It is all smoke and mirrors.


  9. Each and everyday the Democrats/Progressives and their Dear Leader Obama screw up this country up more and more. This community organizer has only been President for 18 months! And this country is in worse shape than it has been since the day I was born. But have no fear my friends, this will not go on forever, soon the Liberals will be eating their words. And regretting the day they voted for this lunatic. And you and I will get the last laugh. I can’t wait until we no longer see that up in the air snooty nose of Obama's

  10. I had though much like the malcontent has stated, but my son reminds me that many of the liberals are already "safe" with their pensions and entitlements, so they can pursue this course with little or no personal damage.
