Last time we checked, Congress did not pass new immigration legislation. Yet the enforcement of immigration laws continues to change and the spirit of these laws as written is defied. The President of the United States has unilaterally decided to ignore his oath to enforce the law, but, instead, has decided to change the law using “executive directives.”
Last week, the Obama Administration issued the latest in a line of full change of law by decree in the form of policy directives granting amnesty by default. This latest fiat instructs Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials to stop enforcing immigration laws in cases in which an illegal alien is the primary provider for any minor child, regardless of the immigration status of the child or the parent.
This comes on the heels of the DREAM act – another Executive example of amnesty by fiat drafted and put into effect by the President. Of course, Border States like California (who cannot afford it), Texas, Arizona and New Mexico foot the bill for these change in laws and yet are not invited to give any input to the decisions.
Obama has ignored the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law and the process by which laws are to be changed. There is more than enough evidence of bipartisan solutions on the table in Congress and yet Obama still believes he knows best and acts as a dictator.
