Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Congress: We voted “no” on the DREAM Act; Obama: OK, then we’ll go ahead and implement the DREAM Act

Remember when Oprompter and his leftist minions used to be offended at the appearance of alleged executive overreach?  Yeah, me too.  Good times, good times.

But that was a couple of years and a different party affiliation ago.  Details:

A new enforcement memo handed down by the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week has some accusing the White House of running around Congress to implement the DREAM Act – and consequent amnesty for some illegal immigrants – by executive fiat.

The new memo, penned by ICE Director John Morton, directs ICE agents, attorneys and directors to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” – meaning less likelihood of deportation – for illegal aliens who have been students in the U.S., who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.

Critics have pointed out the new leniency standards parallel the provisions of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act, which could not pass the Senate, despite several votes over the past decade, including three failed attempts at passage last year.

“This is outright lawlessness on the part of the administration,” argued syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on a discussion panel with Fox News’ anchor Chris Wallace. “Whatever the politics of this, we do have a Constitution. And under it, the Legislature, the Congress enacts the laws and the executive executes them. It doesn’t make them up.

“The DREAM Act was rejected by Congress,” Krauthammer continued. “It is now being enacted by the executive, despite the express will of the Congress. That is lawless. It may not be an explicit executive order; it’s an implicit one.”

ObaMao continues to wipe his backside with the Constitution and the rule of law.  Libs are totally cool with totalitarianism, so long as it’s their brand of totalitarianism.

  1. No surprise there. Ovimit is getting impatient with his agenda being blocked by the legislative branch. So, just issue an order to have it implemented. Easy, huh?
    This is totally over the top for the executive branch. Like that ever bothered the oboozo. Case in point, auto company takeovers.
    Constitution? What’s that? Ah, that old piece of paper which those old guys make up to govern the country? Hey, that was then, this is now. Time for new rules. Ovimit rules.
    2012 is too far away. I’m ready now. I am so tired of this illegal administration.

  2. DREAM Act was so horrible that it couln’t get passed by an almost fillabuster proof Senate and an overwhelmingly Democratic House that also passed Obamacare.

    Obama must be scared about his reelection chances a year from now to illegally give these directives just to get Latino support in 2012.

  3. This is sure a morning for groaners….

    Here in California, we are getting saddled for a rough ride ahead. With the Feds, and our State gov, thought you would find this interesting.

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/california-politics/2011/06/brown-and-democrats-team-up-on-budget-plan-without-gop-input.html

    My favorite (not the right word, but I’m shell shocked right now) quote:

    “The new plan, which Brown unveiled in a joint news conference with the Democratic leaders, would rely on hopes for an economic surge generating billions more in windfall tax collections.”

    So, if “hopes” doesn’t work, I guess we can move on to…. “wishing”?

    Maybe the banks will now let us pay our payments with “good thoughts” instead of, well, real cash? We can only hope.

    Pray for us. Thanks for letting me vent.

  8. I am HISPANIC and say NO TO THE DREAM ACT!

    I am HISPANIC myself and I DO NOT support the DREAM ACT! The government should employ the money in CREATING JOBS for LEGAL and U.S. Citizens, like me.

    Spending money this way will only create more competition for us and will make opportunities harder.
