Once again, president Obama has threatened to act alone on matters that require the agreement of Congress. He has repeatedly overstepped the bounds of his office. This last threat to act on immigration reform without the consent of Congress is yet another outrage.
Immigration reform is a pet project of the current administration. Public opinion has run against sweeping immigration reform and Congress seems loath to act against the wishes of the people, especially in light of the 2014 election season that is approaching. The due process of the law of our land, has once again infuriated the POTUS.
In my opinion, the crisis at the border is at best a manufactured one by some group or groups. If not, then why would it just begin happening now? Isn’t it just a little convenient that it would be a problem at the same time that the current administration wants immigration reform?
NPBC Local 1929 Vice President Stu Harris spoke to Breitbart.com/Texas about the situation. Harris says the border patrol agents capture and turn the illegals over to ICE. ICE, in turn, releases them into the United States. This basically nullifies the work of our border patrol, even as it potentially puts them in harm’s way for no good reason.
Being that ICE is run by the Federal Government, is it any wonder where they receive their orders to do this? Last week a Mexican military helicopter crossed into U.S. airspace. The Mexican government apologized and said that it was an accident, but it is not the first incident of Mexican military clashes with border patrol. The situation to our south is becoming increasingly dangerous to our border states and the American people who reside there. As they are endangered, the rest of the country is endangered as well.
We have an administration that is rife with scandals, and willing to circumvent the Constitutional law of the land on a whim. The Constitution instituted a hierarchy of due process of law so that no one branch of government could act independently of the others. However….
- The SCOTUS has recently ruled that the administration’s “recess appointments” were unconstitutional.
- Boehner is bringing suit against the president.
- The IRS scandal is out of hand and the prosecution is doubtful as the AG is an administration man.
- The Benghazi scandal has never been resolved. The American people have no answers as to why this was allowed to happen.
- Although it has not been in the news recently, the Fast and Furious scandal has never been resolved either and once again, our border patrol is in harm’s way.
This administration is one of the most scandal-ridden and lawless of our generation. The question is, are the American People going to allow this to continue?
The law of the land is for everyone. No one is above it. If it upsets you as a voter and citizen, make your voice heard. November is the time to do it.
