Obama has zero constitutional authority to pick and choose which laws he enforces, but that doesn’t stop him from playing dictator.
On Monday, the Obama Department of Homeland Security somehow thinks it is empowered to grant blanket temporary amnesty to a whopping 8,000 Syrian refugees.
The Washington Times reports (emphasis added):
Homeland Security granted a new temporary amnesty Monday to more than 8,000 Syrians living in the U.S. right now, saying they can remain for up to 18 months longer no matter what their legal status.
Secretary Jeh Johnson issued “temporary protected status” to Syrians, saying that if they are in the U.S. as of Monday and continue to reside here permanently, they can apply for work permits and other documents to remain and live in the U.S. without fear of being ousted.
So regardless what the law says, our rulers get to make the decision to break existing immigration laws.
And where are our “
fearless” feckless RINO leaders Paul Ryan and Obama’s Mitch (McConnell)? Do they not care how many of these “refugees” are radical Islamic terrorists?
Obama should have been impeached a long time ago for blatant trampling on the Constitution like this. You can’t even blame him for his tyranny. He’s doing what the House and Senate allow him to do, which is anything.
The checks and balances our brilliant Founding Fathers put in place are all but gone. And with the current crop of presidential candidates in place, I have a feeling it’s only going to get worse.
