Obama bypasses Congress
With the signing of Barack Obama’s executive order halting the deportation of more than 800,000 young illegal immigrants and giving them work permits, it is clear Obama has violated the constitutional separation of powers. He has bypassed Congress once again by stripping the power of the legislative branch to make laws.
Obama paved the way for these illegal immigrants to gain employment on August 18, 2011, by signing Executive Order 13583, titled “A Coordinated Government-Wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce” to give preferences to Hispanics and other minorities over whites in the federal workforce.
It does not matter to Obama that seven out of 10 of our high school and college students cannot find a job or that we have a realistic figure of 25 percent unemployment and underemployment. He wants votes at all costs.
Obama managed to implement his own DREAM Act even though Congress rejected it and the American people were against it by 60 percent. A poll taken Friday night on MSN revealed 64 percent of people thought Obama’s plan was the wrong policy.
Representative Steve King, Republican and Vice Chairman of the House Immigration Subcommittee, has vowed to sue the Obama administration in federal court over his decision to halt the deportations. Please call his office to let him know you support him (202) 225-4426. He is standing strong with the American people, unlike Sen. Marco Rubio who is in lockstep with Obama in supporting the DREAM Act.
Rubio might just cost Mitt Romney the election as he is dividing the Republican party on this issue, as he wants attention in order to sell his new book, “An American Son.”
