Immigration and the Order of Law
Not since Clinton’s perjury and the Senate’s failure to administer justice for all for the blatant perjury has there been such a flagrant disregard and trashing of the original intention of the Constitution as has been manifest by Obama and his administration. Moving far beyond reason in ignoring the foundational truths of science and history, violating the order of Law yields the brokenness and failure witnessed economically, politically, and socially in our Nation.
The liberal humanist money funding the propaganda of lies and deceptions misdirecting a public tolerant of injustice comes from those benefiting from all that made America great. Accumulating wealth and power, those enemies of truth and justice then reject the immutable Order upon which any enduring society and its government must be based. Human arrogance and pride arising from a false presumption of control ignore the reality of “the Laws of Nature, and of Nature’s God”. Magnified by political action, those enemies, foreign and domestic, rob us of every intention expressed in the Preamble. Absent equal opportunity and justice for all, those “unalienable Rights, …. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” are lost.
America is under attack from all who disobey the Order established by the “Creator” of immutable unchanging Law. “It is [our] duty to throw off such [attackers], and to provide new Guards for [our] future security.”
The 10-Point Immigration Plan Obama Should Follow
David Inserra /November 13, 2014
With news reports surfacing about President Obama’s 10-step plan to take executive action on immigration, it appears the president has decided to ignore the American people, Congress and current law in order to push through some sort of amnesty.
While the details are not yet clear, this administrative amnesty will likely shield as many as 5 million unlawful immigrants from deportation and grant them authorization to work in the United States legally.
This action flies in the face of current law. Despite claims that many presidents have used this authority on many occasions in the past century, never before has a president used his “discretion” to ignore so much of U.S. immigration law in such a massive way.
Rather than using his discretion for hard cases and to better administer the immigration system, Obama is planning on using his discretion to effectively nullify U.S. laws.
Obama’s executive action will not fix our immigration system but will only make it worse by encouraging more illegal immigration, as we have seen with past amnesties.
His action will consume scarce Department of Homeland Security resources, focusing the department’s time and efforts on providing unlawful immigrants with pseudo-legal status while more important reforms to the department are shelved.
Obama will also shred the rule of law, the bedrock of American and Western jurisprudence. The rule of law says that laws should apply to everyone and should be equally and fairly enforced, not tossed out on the whim of the president.
Instead of this arbitrary and harmful plan, The Heritage Foundation has a better 10-step plan for the executive branch–one that upholds the rule of law, faithfully enforces current law and is the right first step to fix the U.S. immigration system.
