Failed President Barack Obama ordered the Department of Homeland Security to stop deportation proceedings against illegal aliens who meet the criteria laid out in the DREAM Act, a law that could not make it through Congress.
The DREAM Act couldn’t make it through Congress because it didn’t have the votes. It didn’t have the votes because the people want illegal aliens deported. The President doesn’t care about the will of the people. He never has. When he wants something done, he abuses the Executive Order process to get it done.
The Homeland Security Department said Thursday it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria such as attending school, having family in the military or are primarily responsible for other family members’ care.
The move, announced in letters to Congress, comes after Hispanic activists and Democrats had urged President Obama to exempt broad swaths of illegal immigrants from deportation while Congress wrestles with the issue.
Of course, we have the luxury of doing things like this because jobs are plentiful and our economy is booming. We can absorb untold numbers of people who break the law every day by being here.
“Supporters of comprehensive and targeted amnesties for illegal aliens have consistently failed to win approval by Congress or gain support from the American public,” said Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform. “Having failed in the legislative process, the Obama administration has simply decided to usurp Congress’s constitutional authority and implement an amnesty program for millions of illegal aliens.”
