Barry’s Legalizing Illegals Proves We Don’t Need Laws When We Have Unicorns
‘When the President does it, that means it is not illegal.’
Google “Bush breaking the law,” and you’ll find an avalanche of left-wing websites and blogs accusing the former President of, well, breaking the law. You’ll see that virtually all of it has to do with Bush authorizing the National Security Agency to perform warrantless wire-taps on communications had between Americans at home and certain people outside of the country. It is certainly reasonable to argue that such an action amounts to a violation of the Constitution, as well as various state and federal laws. And Bush was called out for it, even by some in his own party. The Administration’s reasoning for the move was to combat terrorism. You can make your own judgments as to whether that argument is sufficient.
That’s about all the left has on Bush. Yes, they’ll tell you the invasion of Iraq was illegal (it wasn’t), or that waterboarding is illegal (it might be), but the wiretapping is as close as they get to a blatant violation of the law. And the left continues to complain about it to this day.
I bring up the foregoing because our current president has done more to circumvent the law since just about any president I can think of. As opposed to Iraq, the current President’s action in Libya was actually against the law, since Congress never approved it. The assassination of Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American citizen, without due process, unquestionably violated the law. Every time the administration leaks classified information to the press, such as the identity of the Pakistani doctor who told us where OBL was hiding, it’s a violation of the law. And then you have the Department of Justice sending guns to Mexican drug cartels, which resulted in the death of an American border patrolman.
Well, he’s done it again. On Friday, our little Dictator-in-Chief informed America that deporting young illegal immigrants makes him sad, so we’re not going to do it anymore. That’s it. No Congressional involvement, despite that part of the Constitution which grants it the sole authority on immigration policy. You see, in The Soviet Socialist Republic of Obamaland, the Administration only references the Constitution when it helps, which is rare.
But he obviously has a good reason, right?
Obama described his decision as the ‘right thing to do for the American people,’ but many Democrats and immigration advocates also saw it as the right strategic move to boost his reelection chances.
Oh, that’s right. There’s an election coming up. But wait, there’s more:
‘These are young people who study in our schools, they play in our neighborhoods, they’re friends with our kids, they pledge allegiance to our flag,’ Obama said during an afternoon Rose Garden appearance. ‘They are Americans in their heart, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.’
How sweet. They’re all Americans…in their hearts. And no one should be denied a seat at the Table of Freedom if it breaks their heart. And paper? Screw paper. Are we a nation of
laws paper or a Nation of Happiness, Fairness, and Unicorns for All?
So where’s the anger from all the people who accused Bush of breaking the law? Here we have a President who decided to circumvent the legislative process because it was taking too long, or because he wanted more authentic Mexican food NOW, and so he decided to say to hell with the law.
Arguments in favor of illegal immigration still confound me. I can usually come up with something to support just about anything, but illegal immigration isn’t one of them. Every debate has to end with: an illegal immigrant breaks the law every second of his or her life. And don’t whine to me about how they’re being taken advantage of, and they have to live the shadows, and other nonsense…they shouldn’t be here. Their mere existence violates the law. Does the law matter? Does anyone actually care? Our President doesn’t, and hasn’t for a while now.
Barry’s relationship with Mexico is interesting, I’ll give him that. He’s basically trading automatic weapons for Mexico’s uneducated and unskilled labor. And it’s all happening when there aren’t enough jobs for our own uneducated and unskilled labor. He’s either an incompetent felon or something worse. I just haven’t decided which.
