Once again President Obama (as dictator incognito) prepares to activate his pen in the executive order constitutional destruction mode to make new immigration law. This time he has found the perfect solution to his problem of illegals entering the country and not wanting to leave. Just use the power of executive order to change deportation enforcement. Simple! All he has to do is give millions of illegal immigrants work authorization by executive order. Problem solved! As the Times reported Thursday, Mr Obama (dictator incognito) is prepared to give millions of illegals living in the U.S. work authorization by executive order:
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.
So how would this impact immigration? Ask Senator Jeff Sessions, Republican from Alabama who stated “temporary relief from deportation” would be de facto ending of immigration enforcement:
It has now been extensively reported that these executive actions will likely expand his Deferred Action program (DACA) to apply to an additional 5–6 million adult illegal immigrants. The existing DACA program has been widely misunderstood. The executive action did not, as The Hill writes today, only result in ‘deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants.’ Illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. have already, as a practical matter, been immune from enforcement under this Administration. DACA applies to individuals up to 30 years of age and provides actual amnesty papers, photo ID, and work permits to illegal immigrants—who can then take any job in America.
The President’s planned executive orders would expand this permitting program to another 5–6 million illegal immigrants. This would effectively end immigration enforcement in America.
No matter what you think of President Obama, he is achieving his goal to “fundamentally change America” whether we like it or not.
