Advocacy Groups Call for Suspension of Deportations for Potential RPIs

Rate this Entry

From the NY Times' Julia Preston:



Labor, Latino and immigrant advocate groups called on President Obama
on Monday to suspend deportations of illegal immigrants who could be
eligible for a pathway to citizenship under a bipartisan bill to
overhaul the immigration system that is under consideration in the
Senate.


Among the organizations demanding that the White House halt most
removals were the A.F.L.-C.I.O., the country's largest federation of
labor unions; the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund,
or Maldef, a Latino civil rights group; the National Day Laborer
Organizing Network; and United We Dream, a national group representing
young illegal immigrants. They said Mr. Obama should act immediately,
even before Congress votes on the bill.

    "They said Mr. Obama should act immediately, even before Congress votes on the bill."

    This power is in the Constitution where? Obviously these people have zero respect for immigration law and if the Constitution is an impediment to their radical agenda, that's gotta be ignored too. It's open borders by any means necessary--process be damned.


    "They based their demand on an enthusiastically upbeat analysis of the bill's prospects for passage."

    Upbeat analysis trumps the Constitution?


    "It makes no sense to deport those who would be eligible for that relief."

    Saenz and the other open border advocates may not like it but "that relief" does not exist in law. Saenz is endorsing the outrageous and dangerous concept that the Executive should act as if laws which do not exist actually do and this is who Obama originally wanted to head the Civil Rights Division at DOJ.

    Are you an American citizen?
    Where were you born?
    Have you taken American Government lessons?

    US Constitution, in regards to Executive Orders
    Article II, Section 1, Clause 1:
    "The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:"

    Article II, Section 3, Clause 5:
    "he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all the officers of the United States."

    Now if you understanding of this document is exiguous, then refrain of posting nonsense.
