Brace Yourself For More Obama Executive Orders

3/27/2014 1:00:00 PM - Katie Pavlich

Just two short months ago President Obama announced from the White House, "I've got a pen and a phone and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward." Obama made the statement out of his frustration with a split Congress and a House controlled by Republicans opposed to his big government, lawless agenda.

Now, although Obama may have a pen and a phone, he doesn't seem to have much patience, especially on the issue of immigration reform. Over at the Washington Post, Greg Sargent is warning the GOP's "window of opportunity" on the issue is quickly closing.

Quote
If summer comes and nothing has moved, pressure on Obama to utilize executive action to slow deportations will be overwhelming. He’ll likely do something. The right will go into overdrive, making legislative reform even harder.

Two immigration reform advocates who have spoken personally with the president in recent days tell me they came away convinced he knows he will have to resort to executive action by summer if Republicans do nothing.

“The president made it clear that three months from now, if there is no legislative action, he will do more using executive authority,” says Lorella Praelli, the director of advocacy and policy for United We Dream, who was in a recent meeting between advocates and President Obama. “That was the message that we got in different ways.”


Last fall, House Speaker John Boehner indicated illegal immigration could come up as a priority this spring, but because Obama has a history of negotiating in bad faith with Republicans, nothing has happened. Not to mention, many have argued Obama's prior executive orders on the issues have effectively already given amnesty to millions of people in the United States through a lack of law enforcement.

Quote
A three-page analysis from Jeff Sessions’s office. The good news is, at least ICE is prioritizing correctly. Illegals who’ve committed serious criminal offenses are the first out the door, followed by people caught at the border trying to sneak in and those caught inside the U.S. after having been deported before. The other 99.92 percent who are already here are, however, apparently here to stay, unless/until a Republican president sends down the order to restart deportations among that group. And given the GOP leadership’s icy panic about further alienating Latino voters, the odds of that are near zero.


While Obama continues to take time meeting with pro-amnesty, open-border groups, ICE and Border Patrol agents are still being denied a meeting to express their concerns about current policies and potential policies in the future.

I read somewhere that he will write an E.O. on immigration if he has to.

If the GOP cave to him on this they are fools that will be allowing him to fatten the democratic voter rolls with illegal votes.

Kim Jong-ugh issues EOs all the time, too. :thud:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Why not?  Those illegal aliens are, by and large, already working, so they aren't going to be taking jobs away from anyone else - except perhaps from some of the federal immigration agents who would become unnecessary.

We normally agree - but how long will they be working once they have the legal rights of a US citizen. The minimum wage, for example?

Two points:  (1) I rather doubt that getting a raise to the minimum wage is going to put anyone on easy street, and (2) since they must be paid minimum wage - and the employer must also pay payroll taxes - that makes them even less of a threat to Americans without jobs because they're now competing on a level playing field.

Or unemployed and on benefits because they can no longer get "the jobs Americans don't want to do?"

Look - something has to be done about illegals. No one denies that. But legalizing them en masse is a foolish solution.

Legalizing them with no chance at citizenship is the BEST thing that can be done.

If you don't do that, you have two choices:  1)  Leave things as they are  2)  Try to deport 11 million people.

Number 2 is not going to happen.  And, as Oceander points out, legalizing would mean they would have to compete on an even playing field with Americans.  They could no longer undercut on wages.
