Amnesty for illegal aliens – a very hot topic to which the majority of Americans are opposed, but one which the government, supposedly "for the people, by the people and of the people," seems hell-bent and determined to allow the occupier of the Oval Office to enact by dictatorial edict.
Supporters of amnesty for illegal aliens would say that Obama is only doing what is contained in his DREAM Act – an act that never passed Congress, making anything Obama does regarding that act outside the current law. But, that is not something anyone should be concerned about, as Congress has failed to pass legislation, meaning that Obama should act unilaterally to "change" laws Congress doesn't pass. Along with this amnesty, Obama's plan puts millions of illegal aliens on a "fast track" to citizenship.
Sen. Mike Lee of Utah stated that Obama and the administration "have cleared the pathway to citizenship for millions of people who have crossed our borders illegally."
In a speech on the Senate floor, Lee stated this amnesty allows illegals, who have US-born children, to leave the country, "perhaps for a business meeting in Canada, and then be given 'advanced parole' by border officials that lets them legally return to the United States." Upon their return, they are eligible to be immediately sponsored for a green card and citizenship by their adult children. Lee announced this as a violation of current US law that requires illegals to leave the country for 10 years before being eligible for sponsorship by their US-born adult children.
Lee contended, "They know what they have done, and it is illegal."
According to Lee, Congress has "narrowly defined" when "advanced parole" can be offered to foreigners; it is extended to these individuals "on a case by case basis for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit." Some examples would be for the funeral of a relative or to testify as a witness at a trial. However, under the "new" unilateral changes, an individual could attend a business meeting in Toronto, after obtaining permission to leave, then return to be immediately paroled into the country thereby being eligible for sponsorship. This means that five million illegal aliens could get citizenship through this new "parole" technique.
The amnesty, which is in essence bypassing of constitutional immigration laws, will reward illegal aliens with work permits, drivers' licenses, Medicaid, Social Security, and other programs normally reserved for citizens.
The "fast track to citizenship" also means that illegal aliens, who have skirted the system, will be cleared to vote in elections.
By what authority is the occupant of the Oval Office allowed to grant amnesty to law breakers or authorize illegal aliens a "work around" the US immigration laws? Being that a search of the Constitution has not revealed this authority under Section II, and Section I grants authority to Congress as makers of the law, Obama's actions are clearly unconstitutional. However, Boehner and his RINO cronies have colluded with this administration and Democrats to fund this unconstitutional action for a year.
This Cromnibus should be known as "throw U.S. under the bus" and Obama's actions as "the second reign of King George III."
Since the Congress, the executive, and judicial branches have effectively thrown out the Constitution, what are these individuals following as the law? Nothing, as many can see. Our government has become a "free for all." They are all "free" to do as they please while we the people must do their bidding. Our nation has ceased to be a constitutional republic and moved into the "rule of the elitist politicians." We have become a nation of subjects instead of a nation of citizens.
Congress is full of individuals who have violated laws but they remain immune to prosecution and removal. The Constitution, which provides for the arrest of any member of Congress for treason, felony, and the breach of peace, has been perverted by these charlatans in order to keep criminals in positions to make law. Members of Congress turn a blind eye to their own colleagues' transgressions – crimes any ordinary citizen would be subjected to prosecution. Congress then extends this impunity to the executive and those under it. Following in the glorious tradition, Congress is funding, indicating consent with unlawful executive action, citizenship for criminals.
One could bet, should millions of legal citizens march on Washington in first amendment protest demanding the removal of these lawless, corrupt, treasonous slime in Congress, or defunding of executive amnesty, that Congress would invoke the Constitution, wrongly, to declare such an act an insurrection, or at the very least, unlawful. It would most assuredly be guaranteed the man occupying the Oval Office would relish such a declaration. If Congress didn't or wouldn't declare it as such, he would. As Americans have seen, illegal alien criminals can meet with Congress with impunity, ride with the executive, protest against our immigration laws, and garner support from criminals such as Guitterez. Legal citizens should be so supported and entertained.
In effect, our government has turned its back on the citizens of this nation in favor of illegal alien criminals, non-citizens, big business, and world opinion. Citizens are now considered "collateral damage," fodder, a source of funding for their agenda (a paycheck with feet), and insignificant. Our government has become a government for the minority and themselves, instead of a government securing individual rights and the sovereignty of our nation. Unfortunately, many, if not all, of our state governments are about the same.
Basically, one could say many of us that we are a nation devoid of representation. Even though there is a body charged with the task of representing the people, this body has not for some time represented the people; nor, has anyone in this government honored their oath of office. Instead, members of this body violate their oath and represent their own interests, the interests of money, illegal aliens, theocracies anti-thetical to our founding, and such inequities that violate the sanctity of our constitutional laws.
"We have no government armed with the power of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry [some sources contend "and licentiousness" in place of gallantry] would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other." – John Adams, letter to the officers of the First Brigade of the Militia of Massachusetts, October 11, 1798.
John Adams summed it up nicely in 1798.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
