(Correction: I should have titled this '"another executive order to break the law", because most of them from this guy pretty much exceed his authority!) Who needs Congress? Well, Obama certainly doesn't think so. Our little wannabe dictator strikes again while Congress is in recess (on Friday no less), revealing another desperate move for votes and another opportunity to divert from his failed economic and jobs records.
CNSNews: The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives.
The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies.
The policy change, described to The Associated Press by two senior administration officials, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation.
It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military.
Umm, if they’re here illegally, they ARE breaking the law, that IS criminal. But think about this: Usurp the rule of law through an executive order to break it, say it's for illegal so-called children (a.k.a. 'young adults'), and compounded with the DoJ's fight against states' VoterID laws, anybody care to wager what the obvious goal is here in this election year? Yes, illegal votes for sure (Rush tags this pretty accurately: "Catch, Release, Vote."), but I can't help thinking it might also be a last ditch effort to increase the jobs rolls under his failed policies. He's trying to kill two birds with one dirty stone.
ADDENDUM: Rush, among many, has been telling us for the past several years that "amnesty is heading our way, it is the largest voter registration drive in American history."
And of course, you remember that related document leak in 2010...the current policy change being the full fruition of that.
Ohhh, and how's this for a flashback...
With Friday’s policy shift, Obama contradicts his previous acknowledgment of being unable to actually do what he suddenly feels he can dictate without legislative passage (i.e., usurping the law).
