Scalia takes swipe at Obama immigration action
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN, politico.com
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia suggested Monday that the Framers of the Constitution would have “rushed to the exits” if presented with the idea behind President Barack Obama’s recent decision not to enforce certain immigration laws.
The Supreme Court’s decision to strike down most of the key provisions of Arizona’s SB 1070 immigration law “boggles the mind” in light of the Obama policy shift, Scalia added.
Speaking in dissent of most of the court’s rulings on Arizona’s immigration law, Scalia took a clear swipe in his remarks at the Obama administration’s new policy ending deportations of many young adults brought into the country illegally — which was not part of the Arizona case.
“The president has said that the new program is ‘the right thing to do’ in light of Congress’s failure to pass the administration’s proposed revision of the immigration laws,” Scalia said. “Perhaps it is, though Arizona might not think so.”
We all know the Illegals are Obummers Undocumented DamnOCrap/Obummer Voters for 2012. They are just being used just like anyone else. Just like those who are told to ask friends and family to donate $$$ to Obummer's campaign instead of giving them gifts. If this isn't disgusting I don't know what is. If the Illegals think he cares about them, they are fooling themselves.
Scalia is one of the VERY FEW in the Supreme Court that cares about the Constitution
Not quite. You've got your Republicans and your Democrats and then you've got the people they both work for.
"The eight years of President George W. Bush’s administration saw a marked increase in illegal immigration and a drop in immigration enforcement throughout much of his tenure. For example, the number of illegal aliens arrested in workplace cases fell from nearly 3,000 in 1999 to 445 in 2003, with the number of criminal cases against employers during this period falling from 182 to four. Not surprisingly, by 2005, there were an estimated 10-20 million illegal aliens living in the United States. Even at the end of 2007 after the Bush administration’s enforcement crackdown had been underway; only 92 criminal arrests of employers had taken place, in an economy that, according to the Washington Post, includes 6 million businesses that employ more than 7 million illegal foreign workers.
Despite the failure of past amnesties and the fact that these increase illegal immigration, Bush repeatedly pushed mass legalization (amnesty) schemes for illegal immigrants using the well-worn line that they “are doing jobs Americans will not” or “are not” doing. One scheme was the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act 2007 which was defeated by widespread popular opposition."
This is a long term, hope-you-forget North American Union. What's new is using executive orders to gain votes at the expense of the American worker.
The American people need to trump obama's executive orders by considering all obama's orders null and void.
Right, Bush should have locked up the Border with troops the day after 911. It would have been done, and nobody would have said a word. Maybe the next President can do that as well, as long as it ain't Obama.
Our motto : If obama wants em here he can pay for them with his money NOT our's.
Grace, I would like to see a national referendum on that. All those that want Amnesty have to pay for the Billions is costs from them, and all that do NOT want Amnesty, doesn't have to pay. And if those that want Amnesty find Illegals have no place to stay, they can put some into their homes as well.
Think they would be for Amnesty then?? Ignorant voters never look at the consequences until it hits them in the wallet.
whatever obumble promises he will take it back IF (God Forbid) he gets reelected. I pray every day that everything he is doing gets struck down but I'll be happy with Obumblecare for now. I can't quite understand where he boasts free healthcare but then spouts about MAKING us BUY INSURANCE? This needs to be explained better... our taxes go to pay for free healthcare... but we have to buy our own healthcare.. ???? Is this the goal of the BUMBLES ??? Mass CHAOS and confusion ?? Or should I say MORE CHAOS and confusion ??
Who else would be better qualified to undercut the US Constitution, than a constitutional "scholar". In order to undermine something, you have to know its weaknesses. The Consitution DOES have its weaknesses, that can be used against itself.
Now, is Obama the real "scholar" behind all this constitutional wrangling? I'm not sure. If he isn't, there's definitely others behind the scenes that are.
But, if "We the People" had been on the ball, all this time, in knowing and understanding the Constitution OURSELVES, and treating it as a binding contract between the government and the governed, we might not be in this mess today.
ELENA KAGAN AND THE OTHER COMMUNIST DUMBO APPOINTED TO THE BENCH, KAGAN HELPED WRITE BUMMACARE AND ALSO ROMNEY WAS CALLED IN BY THE WHITEHOUSE BEFORE HE EVER STARTED RUNNING FOR PREZ. BECAUSE HE HAD THE SAME THING IN MASS. KAGAN IS DOING HER BEST TO DESTROY THE CONSTITUTION ALONG WITH DUMBO FROM WITHIN.
What obama should have said is the truth:
“The president has said that the new program is ‘the right thing to do’ in light of the New World Order take over of America.
This is Obama's and the Dem's way of saying to the American citizens, screw you. Well, God willing come Nov. 2012, we can give him the same "response". Illegals don't have to obey the laws of the United States. Millions of Americans out of work, but he let's the illegals stay to take our jobs.
