CNS News.com reports: “Does the president of the United States have the power to unilaterally tell millions of individuals who are violating federal law that he will not enforce that law against them now, that they may continue to violate that law in the future, and that he will take action that makes them eligible for federal benefit programs for which they are not currently eligible due to their unlawful status? Through Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, President Barack Obama is telling the Supreme Court exactly this right now.”
“The solicitor general calls what Obama is doing ‘prosecutorial discretion.’ He argues that under this particular type of ‘prosecutorial discretion,’ the executive can make millions of people in this country illegally eligible for Social Security, disability and Medicare.”
These are programs that Americans have been taxed heavily to create, but illegal aliens, who just got here, will get access because Obama knows that most of them will vote Democrat if he lets them stay and eventually get citizenship.
“(T)he Supreme Court will hear arguments in the case. Entitled United States v. Texas, it pits President Obama against not only the Lone Star State, but also a majority of the states, which have joined in the litigation against the administration. At issue is the policy the administration calls Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, which would allow aliens in this country illegally who are parents of citizens or lawful permanent residents to stay in the United States.
“‘The Executive Branch unilaterally created a program — known as DAPA — that contravenes Congress’s complex statutory framework for determining when an alien may lawfully enter, remain in, and work in the country,’ the attorney general and solicitor general of Texas explained in a brief submitted to the Supreme Court on behalf of the states seeking to block the policy. ‘DAPA would deem over four million unlawfully present aliens as lawfully present’ and eligible for work authorization,’ says the Texas brief. “And lawful presence is an immigration classification established by Congress that is necessary for valuable benefits, such as Medicare and Social Security.”
All of this is headed toward one place–the voting booth. Obama and the Democrats are importing millions of foreigners to get the Dems a permanent majority, perpetual power and create a one-party state. (California already has a non-White majority and the Dems have a stranglehold on the California government.)
The Supreme Court (surprisingly) threw up a speed bump and voted against one of Obama’s completely illegal efforts to shield illegal aliens from the law as noted here, but Obama doesn’t care. He operates like a Third World dictator and we can’t expect any serious enforcement of immigration law until Donald Trump becomes president.
