State Legislators for Legal Immigration Calls Out Obama on Treasonous Backdoor Amnesty
Dear Readers, I know this issue is controversial with our fellow Libertarians, but as Ron Paul has oft said, just enforce the Constitution. If it isn't there, then don't do it and vice versa. In this case it is there in Article 4, Section 4 of the United States Constitution. You can look at a previous post to view the pending PA legislation National Security Begins at Home package could save PA taxpayers — Illegal Alien Reform Legislation . Blessings, Dona Witmer
HARRISBURG – State Legislators for Legal Immigration (SLLI), founded by Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe, denounced the recent executive order of the Obama administration to reprioritize and individually review more than 300,000 illegal alien deportation cases.
The new mandate will require the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to review all current deportation cases, as well as new cases, to weed out the "low-priority" illegal aliens. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) personnel were also instructed in a memorandum dated June 17, 2011 to use "prosecutorial discretion" when determining whether to pursue a deportation case. The memo includes a list of "positive factors that should prompt particular care and consideration" including: individuals present in the United States since childhood; pregnant or nursing women; and minors and elderly individuals. (Too bad the TSA doesn't use this list! dw)
"This deplorable act of treasonous deceit circumvents the balance of power established by our Founding Fathers in Article 4, Section 4 of the United States Constitution, established to protect all 50 states against invasion," said Metcalfe. "Halting the deportation process to individually review each and every deportation case is a premeditated executive action to obstruct all deportations in favor of blanket amnesty."
According to a recent Rasmussen Report poll, 61 percent of likely U.S. voters believe that gaining control of the border is a more important immigration reform measure versus only 31 percent who favor amnesty as a top priority, a margin of 2 to 1.
By Constitutional definition, it is the job of President of the United States to enforce the laws of this nation. This is just another in a long list of examples of the Obama regime deliberately and systematically trying to destroy the greatest nation ever devised by mankind," said Arkansas State Representative Jon Hubbard. "If the possibility of buying illegal alien votes were not involved, Obama would have no interest whatsoever in protecting those who are in this country illegally."
Allowing "low priority" illegal aliens to remain in the United States will only further increase the tax burden on hardworking legal residents. Illegal aliens will continue to have access to public benefits and public education, as well as overcrowding the courts, emergency rooms and prisons. The ICE memorandum also allows for lenient deportation consideration to illegal aliens pursuing an education in the United States, thus establishing a "DREAM Act" atmosphere in the American education system at the expense of law-abiding citizens, without legislative action.
"By imposing 'Executive Amnesty,' the Obama administration has effectively downgraded the federal government from AWOL in fulfilling its Constitutional duty to protect the lives, liberty, property and jobs of American citizens against foreign invasion to a fully complicit accomplice in eroding America's national and economic sovereignty," said Metcalfe. "Granting blanket amnesty to illegal alien invaders further demonstrates the Obama administration's blatant disregard for his oath of office, the Constitution and the rule of law."
Formed to demand full cooperation among federal, state and local governments to eliminate all economic attractions and incentives that continue to lure illegal aliens across America's unsecured borders, lawmakers from 41 state legislatures, or more than 80 percent of the nation, have now signed on as members of SLLI.
