When Obama entered office, democrats controlled both chambers of Congress and all they did was pass the ultra-shitty ObamaCare, ignoring all of the other “important” things liberals claim to care about. Because Obama was so horrible, Congress flipped to GOP control and he was “forced” to legislate from the Oval Office in clear violation of the separation of powers. His DACA amnesty executive order was certainly illegal and because of that President Trump has repealed it. Now, Obama is lecturing that getting rid of his illegal order is actually illegal because that’s just the kind of person he is.
Immigration can be a controversial topic. We all want safe, secure borders and a dynamic economy, and people of goodwill can have legitimate disagreements about how to fix our immigration system so that everybody plays by the rules.
But that’s not what the action that the White House took today is about.
So what exactly was it about?
Ultimately, this is about basic decency. This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we’d want our own kids to be treated. It’s about who we are as a people – and who we want to be.
Then Obama actually says this about illegal aliens:
These Dreamers are Americans in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.
Which, legally, is the only way that matters. This is kind of like saying that if a man believes he is a woman, then he really is a woman and truth be told, Obama thinks that is true as well.
But it’s not all just about the “feels” Obama thinks that it is illegal to put a stop to his “law” that he created illegally:
Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision, and a moral question.
Required legally? I’m not even sure what the hell that means. If something is unconstitutional, like the president passing his own laws, then ending it is most certainly is legally required.
As for the order itself, here Obama explains why it isn’t as illegal as everyone thinks:
…my administration acted to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people, so that they could continue to contribute to our communities and our country. We did so based on the well-established legal principle of prosecutorial discretion, deployed by Democratic and Republican presidents alike…
He gave amnesty and work permits to illegal aliens, which is another way to say that he granted them legal resident status. This goes against existing immigration laws, so it wasn’t enforcement discretion, it was a brand new law. And again, presidents are not allowed to write laws, no matter how much Obama tries to spin this.
To prove his point about the legality of repealing DACA, Obama conveniently redefines what the law actually says:
What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray. What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals – that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation. That’s how America has traveled this far. That’s how, if we keep at it, we will ultimately reach that more perfect union.
No, what makes us American is who our parents are and where we were born. The Constitution doesn’t bestow American citizenship on people for standing up and speaking out, it does so for people born on American soil or to American parents. There is also a mechanism to become an American citizen, but sneaking into this country is not part of it.
There you have it: Constitutional scholar Obama says he was allowed to create laws as president, but it is illegal for President Trump to get rid of those laws. On top of that, American citizenship is granted to whoever liberals think deserve it and not the way the Constitution instructs that citizenship is determined.
