    Re: Obama to take executive action on immigration

    Ya know, I listened to Obama say he was going to take his latest Executive Action because the Tea Party wouldn't let Boehner vote on the wonderful Senate Immigration Bill.
    And what he said he was going to do was send personnel to manage the border.
    So I wondered why he needs another bill to make him enforce the border when we already have laws that require him to do that very thing.
    Then I realized he was playing with words again.
    He didn't mean he was taking E.A. to enforce the border, he meant he was going to send more people to process all those kids.
    Just like he had planned from the beginning of the year.

    Say what you will, he's a scumbag all right, but he's the most proficiently lying scumbag President we've ever had.

    Supposedly the United States is a nation of laws. The congress writes them, the administration enforces them. As long as the president stays within the frame of existing laws as written and what he does is not prohibited by them or the constitution he can pretty much do as he wants. If he steps over that line, that could be considered a high crime. We'll just have to wait and see what the president has in mind.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This is tough because I agree with both sides on this.

    There should be laws that go through Congress. I agree. However, the current bunch of chumps there won't do anything about it.

    Yea, Reagan did it along time ago. Hoping further legislation would stem the tide and control immigration. None of that got done.

    Tried?

    He is a rather "trying" individual at times..

    Having far more existential and observational experience on our southern border than our administration, and considering the admins history, I cannot expect anything positive from his declaration.

    BUT, I will wait to hear his grand plan before possibly beginning a tirade of run-on sentences and never ending paragraphs.

    The gentleman is pushing limits.

    He doesn't live and maybe has never visited our southern border (save for his ASU politicing)

    We will see what we will see.

    The outlook isn't brilliant for the Sonoran

    Smile anyway, it confuses people

    All laws should go through Congress - that is why we have a Congress.

    Basic logic. Executive orders are limited in their scope and nature. They do not apply to everyone or cannot be used on everything at will.


    That action is the very definition of dictatorship.
    No its not.
