Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

President Barack Obama on his Power to Stop Deportations

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.
The following quotes are representative of President Obama's position on his ability to provide deportation relief to the undocumented community:

"With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed…The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws.

There are enough laws on the books by Congress that are very clear in terms of how we have to enforce our immigration system that for me to simply through executive order ignore those congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President." (March 28, 2011).

"I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books. ... Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the (immigration) laws on my own. ...
That's not how our Constitution is written" (July 25, 2011).

"This notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. ... There are laws on the books that I have to enforce" (Sept. 28, 2011).

"If, in fact, I could solve all these problems without passing laws in Congress, then I would do so. But we're also a nation of laws" (Nov. 25, 2013).

There is clear Constitutional authority for the President to favorably exercise prosecutorial discretion on a case-by-case basis. Moreover there are legal mechanisms available, i.e., parole in place, that afford the Executive an opportunity to provide permanent solutions to deserving groups of undocumented immigrants, i.e., undocumented relatives of the U.S. armed forces.

So why is it that the President has spent the last three years misleading the public about his ability to provide deportation relief to the undocumented community?
And more importantly, why is he waiting until the last possible moment before the 2014 mid-terms to assuage the carnage of his deportation grinder?

I'll let you be the judge.
