LETTER: Amnesty for illegal aliens providedNo president has abused his “executive power” option to the extent President Barack Hussein Obama has.
To the Editor:
No president has abused his “executive power” option to the extent President Barack Hussein Obama has. By ignoring the legislative process and granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in an effort to appease the massive pro-amnesty Hispanic voting block Mr. Obama has thumbed his nose repeatedly at Congress to enact legislation vital to his re-election.
Our nation’s Immigrant Custom Enforcement (ICE) has been ordered to stop deporting millions of illegal aliens. ICE has also been instructed to set up special taxpayer funded hotlines to assist suspected illegal lawbreakers. This special hotline is manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Additionally, the Obama Administration has issued work authorizations to hundreds of thousands of illegals, allowing them to compete for American jobs. Also, a “presidential taskforce” will decide who among illegals receive amnesty and who does not. Unless immediate action is forthcoming, Obama’s amnesty will continue to strop billions of dollars per year from hardworking taxpayers for illegals’ free health care, welfare, unemployment assistance, education, public housing and other funded benefits.
The Obama Administration, via its Department of Homeland Security, is so obsessed with securing the illegal immigrant vote that it has put in place a plan entitled “Administrative Alternatives to Comprehensive Immigration Reform” to bypass Congress and grant total amnesty for illegal aliens should they lose majority control of Congress.
The American people cannot let the Obama Administration get away with purposefully and willfully not enforcing America’s immigration laws for their own re-election political gain. Obama’s assault on our nation’s separation of powers, as set forth in its Constitution, must be stopped.
To successfully combat our president’s blatant abuse of his executive powers, American voters must unite forcefully to assure that Congressional input on decisions vital to the nation’s interests are guaranteed.
Entering America legally should be the only path to the privilege of citizenship in this great land of opportunity. The failed Congressional Amnesty given to illegals in 1986 should have been a wake-up call that blanket amnesty action is not the solution to our illegal immigration crisis. It instead turned out to be disastrous and worsened the problem rather than lessening it.
Are we once again willing to pursue the highly questionable approach such as president Obama advocates – one that will not solve the monumental problem our country continues to face?
