Obama’s gives amnesty to illegals by decree

August 22, 2011 @

Bowing to pressure from immigrant rights activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria, such as attending school, having family in the military or having primary responsible for other family members’ care.

The move marks a major step for President Obama, who for months has said he does not have broad categorical authority to halt deportations and said he must follow the laws as Congress has written them.

But in letters to Congress on Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said she does have discretion to focus on “priorities” and that her department and the Justice Department will review all ongoing cases to see who meets the new criteria.

    An attempt by Obama to get the Illegal aliens to be able to vote for his re-election. Congress and Senate need to get off their asses and impeach this menace to our country.

    Points to answered since all but criminals will be allowed to stay ande not be deported Mr. President.

    Point 1: How many of these Illegal Aliens are recieving tax payer assistance in the open arms of our bankrupt nation?!

    Point 2: How many of thesse Illegal Aliens are going to bring more illegal aliens to our open arms country to get more tax payer bankruptcy dollars?!

    Point 3: When are you going to close the open border to stop the flow of illegal aliens that will be getting our taxpayer bankruptcy dollars?!

    I sincerely hope these points/questions/imperatives are asked at every press! interview until answered

    Obviously he cares more about buying votes from illegal alien lawbreakers than he cares about upholding the Constitution or creating opportunities for honest, unemployed, taxpaying American Citizens. This is the worst piece of trash to have ever been called “president”.

    President (Dictator) Obama ignores Congressional authority to enforce our Laws by refusing to enforce his sworn responsibility to execute their Laws, and BO decides who will be deported and who will be left alone! Vice President Joe Biden says we should have 1 child per family like China and abort children while he and Obama continue to allow Millions of Illegal alien trespassers to keep entering our country and ignoring Laws to deport them. I believe this is reason enough for impeachment.

    Obama has done it again!!!!!, and is in league with our enemies who finance and use him as a puppet for the purpose of Islamic terrorists and Obama’s own wars against FREE nations.

    We are convinced by his coverups and fraudulent birth certificates that he is illegal himself and ineligble to be the president of the USA.

    To invite illegal people to be citzens of this country is illegal. Obama knows it is illegal and offensive to use executive orders to make illegals legal. He is representing our enemies and should be impeached asap. He is an embarrassment in the White House and our allies are disgusted with him as well.

    IMPEACH is the only way we can recover our freedom and dignety. IMPEACH him NOW!!!

    God bless America

    No president should have the authority to bypass Congress and break the law. He has no right to arbitrarily grant illegals the right to remain in this country. If said illegals wish to remain in this country, they should go back to their country of origin and apply for legal entry into the U.S. President Obama seems to feel more allegiance to illegal immigrants than he does to the the taxpayers who pay the bills. I might add that the president is elected to serve the “citizens” of the United States and defend our constitution and our laws. Mr.Obama clearly shows disdain for everything this country is known for and is selling us out in the name of securing additional votes for him and for his cronies. I believe the man should be impeached and removed from office, fined, and placed in prison for massive fraud against the American people.

    I spent $72k for a career change…and I can’t find full time work because the “illegals” have a majority of the positions tied up.
    God help us all.

    Why do the Republicans, Tea Party, and other “Conservatives” in power not do anything to stop this??
    Not a word of it has been brought to the forefront by any of them.

    I love this country of ours, but constantly wonder what in the hell is wrong with the American citizenz? We have a man in the whitehouse that is a known student of communism, a muslin. A man that has shown from past practices, that he will get whatever he wants by whatever means he has to use, legal or otherwise.

    He has taken a national day of prayer away from us because under neath all that BS
    he spouts out, is a natural born atheist, a hater of Christ.

    His only goal as Prtesident of this country, is the total destruction of this country. Everything about this man, is an out and out lie, including his birth
    certificate.

    He should be inpeached, then deported from this country, and everything he has accuumlated confiscated. He is a lousy tratior thru and thru, so lets treat him like what he is.

    Most all of our problems could be solved if only Congress would get off its dead ass and prove Obama has a fraudulent birth certificate. That finding would force the impeachment of Obama. Everything Obama signed, is invalid, as he was invalid. Obamacare. But as is always the case, Congress is ineffective.

    The president of the United States takes the side of drug cartels and ILLEGALs against law abiding citizens. Obummer’s treasonous policies secede an 80 mile strip of the United States to ILLEGALs and drug smugglers. His minions tell border guards not to arrest ILLEGALs, just shoo them back to mexico. Arrests don’t show up on official records so napolitano and DHS can lie; saying fewer ILLEGALs are being arrested so border security is working.
    Obummer and his cabal apparently condone the murder of over 2000 citizens by ILLEGALs each year, and supports ILLEGALs to molest, rape or assault over
    7000 more. The very people we hire, mock patriotic Americans; as in “Potential Nazis, Mobsters, and Un American; given by nancy pelosi or “Right Wing Extremist and Potential Terrorist Threat”, by janet napolitano.
    Mr. President; we are damned angry on this issue! No weasel words; no “amnesty” or “guest workers” or “paths to citizenship.”
    Do your job; seal the border, enact E-Verify and fine employers of ILLEGALs.

    Keep your trust in God; your government is failing you miserably!

    I have family members who are praying that he goes from the white house to the prison- King obama is trying to rule without oversight and this administration is already guilty of several crimes where we, as law abiding citizens, would have landed us in jail. NOW, I believe that ANY american citizen who breaks a law should have a lawyer defending them with the argument that since our laws ARE NOT BEING ENFORCED and our leaders have been breaking the law that we as citizens should be able to also. This administration should be convicted/impeached, etc.

    He sued AZ even after admitting “the federal government is not doing its job but should be”, let’s use his own words and sue him so 8 million illegals can be ousted and unemployed legal immigrants and citizens can get back to work!!

    HEY CONGRESS: WHY the He#l are you sitting up there and letting this man run over every LEGAL CItizen in the United States of America. Are you too scared of this MUSLIM that is pretending to be a Dictator over the USA to tell him NO he cannot run our country, UNLESS he follows OUR CONSTITUTION? It is hard to believe ANY human being that is supposed to be in charge of our Federal Government and TAKE CARE of our country is getting by with outlandish LIES and WILL NOT stop it. He has NO authority to do the things he is and has been doing. WILL ONE of you in Congress PLEASE GIVE ME AN ANSWER, PLEASE, we deserve much better from all of you up there that are living high and mighty while the rest of the population is scratching bottom trying to save enough money from one week to another to buy food and medicine! WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE TO CONTINUE BEING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. GOD please help us, we have not forgotten you, it just seems that way, by the way the Muslims and Atheists are treating all of us. PLEASE HELP US!

    aurello, you are ILLEGAL-you have no say in this argument-it’s not our fault your parents decided to break our laws and bring you here illegally, using our schools for your education, and most likely our health services too. Have you done anything to become legal, now that you’re an adult? If not, why not? If you plan to live here, you should. If not, please go home. Those stating this is wonderful-all have no say, because most all of them are …ILLEGAL!! We are tired of it, we are tired of having to press 1 for ENGLISH-learn the language for good ness sake. Yes, we’re pissed, it’s been going on for too long-tired of those coming here and breaking the law, murderer’s and rapists coming here and those taking good jobs that should be ours. So…do us a favor, either follow the law-or go home.
