Last year Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration for his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program which essentially halted deportation of illegal aliens who were brought to this country (illegally) by their parents when they were children. It's one more step the President has taken to not only ignore illegal immigration but to promote it.
The suit was heard in U.S. District Court in August of last year and sadly, the judge in the case folded to the Obama administration. U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor, who earlier in the year had expressed agreement with the agents’ contention that the deferred deportation program undermined their duty to enforce the law, said that it was not within his court’s jurisdiction to decide on what essentially is a dispute between federal employees and their employer, the U.S. government. Did Holder get to him? No one knows but the judge himself but it's likely.
ICE union president, Christopher L. Crane, is the chief plaintiff in the lawsuit. Crane contends that President Obama has ordered ICE agents not to do their jobs. Judge O'Conner seemingly agrees with Crane but would not hear the case or even make a decision to let it go forward.
The fact is that President Obama picks and chooses the laws he will enforce. He has done the same thing with the Obamacare law - unilaterally making changes to it that are unconstitutional. The President's job is to enforce the laws of the land not make or change them. Apparently that is something our "Constitutional law professor" doesn't seem to understand.
In my opinion the head of ICE should file criminal charges against the President for aiding and abetting illegal immigration. Since he refuses to deport many illegals, refuses to secure our borders to stop the influx of illegal, and refuses to go after sanctuary cities who give shelter to illegals, he is aiding and abetting illegal immigration.
I'm sure there are a few people who will immediately scream "George W. Bush didn't do anything about it either!" And to them I would say "You're correct. He didn't. And that was one of my biggest problems with him. But here's a tip - Bush isn't the President anymore and Obama is signing orders making it easier for illegals to get in and stay in." (Bush haters are nothing if not consistent. They never give up and try to justify what Obama does wrong by comparing it to what Bush did or didn't do in the past. I guess we could go further back and say Clinton, Bush Senior and Carter all did things wrong so let's just give Obama a pass on anything and everything. I don't think so.)
In his State of the Union address the other night the President said of Guantanamo Bay detention center "We have to stand on our Constitutional principles." Yet when Constitutional principles get in his way he goes around them. He has stated publicly that the Constitution gets in the way of things he wants to do. He hates the fact that our founders set the government up that way. They did it specifically to stop future Presidents like Obama from grabbing too much power. Because they knew the day would come when a President would want to be king.
Obama needs to be stopped. We conservatives need to get out there and wake up voters and get them to come out and vote against the Democrat regime in November. America is in crisis and rather than leading us of it President Obama is leading us into it. The Pied Piper and his followers are headed toward the cliff and dragging us along with them. It's time to pull them back despite their desires to blindly follow their leader. And the way to do that is with votes.
