    I have made a point to always say I don't hate the person, I hate the sin. but with Obama ot's getting really hard to hold to that.
    Name any piece of legislation he signed that has been deemed by the Supreme Court to be in violation of the Constitution? Just because the Talking Heads and his Republican counterparts say so doesn't mean it is so. But to dispel the notions I believe you have:

    Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act - One lower District Court ruled against the new law; one lower District Court ruled against the "individual mandate only". The Supreme Court hasn't taken up the case yet. Verdict is still out.

    Trust Fund from BP Oil Spill - His authority to establish the fund comes from the Oil Pollution Act. Read it and you'll find that only the President has the authority to compel a private oil company to pay for damages and lost wages from such a natural disaster.

    "Hostilities" in Libya - Used War Powers Act to commit U.S. Armed Forces to hostilities in the region (w/the support of 3 U.N. Resolutions); hasn't violated the Constitution because neither country has declared war upon the other by their rulers.

    Those are the only three major issues I believe those on the Right (and perhaps even some on the Left) are questionable over, but if they'd just read the laws or try to better understand the given situation, perhaps they wouldn't be given to such hyperbol such as you've clearly exhibited.

    Re: Obama Administration Passes DREAM ACT by Executive Memo

    YahooNews just released a new article on the so-called "backdoor to amnesty" memo by the ICE Directors. From the article:

    In the memo, ICE Chief John Morton reminds agents that they can practice "prosecutorial discretion" in deciding which people to attempt to deport in court. The Obama administration has consistently said its priority is to deport illegal immigrants who pose a safety threat to their communities or have engaged in immigration fraud. But this memo lays out that position in far greater detail, asking agents to take "particular care and consideration" when illegal immigrants are veterans, minors or elderly, have been in the United States for a long time, are the victims of crimes, or are pregnant or suffer from health problems.

    Ali Noorani of the pro-reform National Immigration Forum told The Lookout that though the memo is largely a compilation of the administration's stated immigration priorities, it is noteworthy for stressing that ICE agents at many levels can use prosecutorial discretion.

    "At the end of the day it means that an attorney within ICE, instead of spending his time prosecuting a landscaper, can go after a criminal," Noorani says.

    He points out that Clinton official Doris Meissner articulated a similar policy of prosecutorial discretion in 2000 for the precursor agency to ICE, the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

    ....

    Obama has presided over a record-breaking number of deportations. ICE increased the number of convicted criminals it deported by 70 percent in two years--from 114,415 in 2008 to 195,722 in 2010, by using its "Secure Communities" fingerprinting program that scours local jails for illegal immigrants. Nearly 400,000 people were deported in fiscal 2010, about half of them with no criminal records. Morton said 400,000 represents the maximum number of deportations the agency can handle per year.
    Just food for thought...

    Re: Obama Administration Passes DREAM ACT by Executive Memo

    Seems like a hoax to me... I haven't heard anything about this anywhere and I do remember hearing that Obama specifically said he will not use the presidency to carry out the dream act.

    I did find this though: Dream Act gets first Senate hearing on Tuesday | 89.3 KPCC

By reacting like this, you are giving power to those who use lies for political gain. The best we can hope for is those who cannot be bothered to read a few ****ing minutes do not vote.
    I posted in response to the OP, before I had read the rest of the thread. It seems that the policy in question was implemented by ICE, not the administration, which does not lessen my annoyance at the policies described in the June, 2010, memo.

    I am not ignorant. I do not adore ignorance. I can be bothered to read a few ****ing minutes. And as unfortunate as you may find it, I do indeed vote.

    I hope that clears things up for you.

    I was not confused. Of course, I admit that I followed the link and read it.

    “A new enforcement memo handed down by the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last week has some accusing the White House of running around Congress to implement the DREAM Act – and consequent amnesty for some illegal immigrants – by executive fiat.
    The new memo, penned by ICE Director John Morton, directs ICE agents, attorneys and directors to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” – meaning less likelihood of deportation – for illegal aliens who have been students in the U.S., who have been in the country since childhood or who have served in the American military.”

    Are you guys really that naive and believe everything you see that furthers your cause? Really? Seriously?
    Are you claiming that the ICE Memo does not exist? Really? Seriously?

    The claims by some people on here that there is a path to citizenship was not stated by the original poster. It was frequently stated by his detractors.
    It is clear that ICE has decided that they will not prosecute illegal aliens if they can find a reason not to. Among the reasons are phrases remarkably similar to those found in the failed DREAM Act.

    And the head of ICE is a Senior Executive Service position. Therefore this is an Executive Memo.

    It is an indicator of just how deep our distrust is. Next time it is anybody but the Marxist.

    I don't comment on current ICE stuff on forums anymore as per advice from coworkers, but let me just say that a directive from the ICE Director is NOT an executive order from the President. The ICE director can issue orders without approval from the White House.

    Do you have the ICE Memo?
    How did this not get a single source of news coverage? Because the DREAM Act is huge and has gotten a ton of news attention and with Obama supposedly passing it with an "executive memo" could be great rating s and debate with these "news" stations.
    Did you fail to see this tho?:
