President Obama makes legal immigration more fair and equitable

Again proving that His pen is mightier than constitutional governance, President Obama has issued executive decrees applying
identical standards to documented and undocumented immigrants.

Obstructionist Republicans have expressed concern about a recent executive decree allowing immigrants who have given “limited support” to terrorists to enter the country lawfully.

President Obama’s use of an executive directive to ease the rules for people trying to enter the United States or stay in the country even though they have given “limited” support to terrorists or terror groups is causing problems for Republicans working on immigration reform.

“President Obama should be protecting U.S. citizens rather than taking a chance on those who are aiding and abetting terrorist activity and putting Americans at greater risk,” says Virginia GOP Rep. Robert Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and part of the GOP House leadership team working on immigration reform.

He and other Republican lawmakers argued that the administration is relaxing rules designed by Congress to protect the country from terrorists.

The Republican position is, of course, nonsense. Al Qaeda died when President Obama killed Osama bin Laden, He has eliminated all threats of domestic terrorism by foreigners and only isolated incidents of workplace violence by Tea Party Terrorists now occur.

President Obama is merely trying, in His own enlightened and compassionate but humble way, to give those who wish to enter or remain in the country lawfully the same rights and privileges as illegals those who cross our borders or remain in the country without prior governmental permission. Federal authorities do not know who the undocumented entrants are, where they came from, what they brought with them, why they left home or what they intend to do in the United States (beyond voting for the most promising Democrat available).

Immigration Reform

It is, therefore, unfair to gather any information about those who hope to enter (or remain in) the United States lawfully. Hence, there will be no more restrictions on “legal” immigrants based on:

♥ Highly infectious or communicable diseases;
♥ Criminal records;
♥ Terrorist associations;
♥ Poverty;
♥ Education or lack thereof;
♥ Skills or lack thereof suitable for lawful employment;
♥ Domestic needs for skilled employees;
♥ Anything else.

Opponents of comprehensive immigration reform have long complained that our allegedly porous borders — and lack of standards for those who cross them without prior permission — have put those who strangely try to proceed in accordance with our archaic laws at an unfair disadvantage. Acknowledging that the position makes sense, President Obama has also decreed that there will be no further delays or financial burdens associated with approval to enter or to remain in the United States indefinitely. Everyone already on a waiting list to enter or remain has already been approved by executive decree and no visa or other documentation will henceforth be required to enter or to remain indefinitely.

The Republican establishment, once it understands the humanitarian bases for the President’s decree, will obviously agree that it is the fair and equitable way to proceed. The only question remaining is whether President Obama’s high regard for future Democrat voters fairness and equality is shared by Republicans.

7 Responses to President Obama makes legal immigration more fair and equitable

  1. Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a
    very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

    If Republicans and conservatives in general believe Obama is subverting the Constitution, then why don’t they do something about it besides jacking their jaws? Take him to court or impeach him. If they can manage to gain a majority in the Senate this year, they might even be able to convict him in the Senate next year. If all else fails, they might consider fielding a candidate who can defeat him in 2016 and keep an equally leftist Democrat out of the White House.

    Brittius, you say that “al-Qaeda is in charge of DHS and the Oval Office” and “Obama cannot prove his own identity.” That’s nonsense. Instead of this kind of blather, why don’t you look at the real issues — there’s enough there to indulge your anti-Obama mania.

    • According to Article I, Section 3 of the Constitution,

      The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present. [Emphasis added.]

      Hence, a Republican Senate majority is not sufficient. The chances of getting enough Democrats in the Senate to vote for conviction under a bill of impeachment are about as great as the chances of Republicans getting enough seats there. That’s among the reasons I have long maintained that seeking a bill of impeachment from the House is little more than a distraction and a PR ploy.

      • Tom Carter says:

        Dan, that’s why I said they “might” be able to convict him in the Senate. Gain more seats than expected, gather up a few responsible Democrats (???), and who knows?

        I think the mere fact of having been impeached is pretty significant, actually. Bill Clinton’s legacy will always include the fact that he was only the second president in history to have been impeached. That would be a good counterpoint to Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.

  3. The Butcher says:

    replace the word “Congress” with the phrase “American voters”, and it’s clear whose interests President Obama aims to “override” with his “mighty pen”.

    Reblogged this on Brittius.com and commented:
    What’s the purpose of a Security Clearance when al-Qaeda is in charge of DHS and the Oval Office? In fat, Obama cannot prove his own identity and that alone should have him labeled as a terrorist.
