Scalia Slams Obama Immigration Order

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  ??

Obama is the most unlawful president ever. He thinks he's above the law. I'm sure he wishes this was a dictatorship country, and he hates our political system. But too bad! The system is designed to keep dictators like him in line. It's so annoying to hear the media call him a "constitutional scholar", when all he's tried to do his entire presidency is attempt to get around the constitution.

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.

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. 

With the Communist now running the Democrat Party we have to more then ever speak out and not stay silent.

Don't be afraid what people think that's just the communist trying to shut you up threw political correctness.

This immagration problem was born idea of the evil communist elite. To destroy or nation sovereignty, identity and our patriotism. You get the new immigrants that don't know what the United States is all about and there GOD given rights freedoms and liberities. All these illegel aliens know is a free hand out and will give there vote to any one. That's why the communist what the amasty. The illegel immigrantss don't learn about our nations history. Illege limmigrants  don't apperate our nations freedom and liberties. The communist can get the illegel immigrants to do any thing. They don't know there rights. There not teaching it in school.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
