GOP Outraged at Obama's Visa Move: 'Blatantly Breaking the Law'

Republicans were outraged Thursday after the Obama administration eased new visa requirements for certain European travelers who have visited Iran, Iraq, Syria, or Sudan in the last five years — accusing President Barack Obama of appeasing Tehran and charging that the changes would undercut efforts to prevent terrorists from entering the United States. 

"The Obama administration is blatantly breaking the law, a law the president himself signed," said House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul of Texas. "This is not a difference of opinion over statutory interpretation, it is a clear contradiction of the law and the agreement we reached with the White House. 

"President Obama is again putting his relationship with Iran's supreme leader over the security of Americans." 

Both McCaul and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte said that the new exemptions had already been rejected by Congress.

       YOUR FIRST SENTENCE IS WHAT I'VE THOUGHT FOR A LONG TIME !!  I THINK HE BELONGS TO SAUDI ARBIA !!  I THINK HIS MIDDLE NAME IS HIS LAST NAME AND THAT IS SAUDI ROYALTY .   HOW THIS FITS WITH IRAN I'M NOT SURE OTHER THEN JARRETT !

Then why are they not doing something about it???

Because it might upset their little money train. 

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

Neither party wants to end their looting of the USA. Both of the parties work with each other to fill their pockets. None of them serve the citizens of the USA, just their own interests. No one is above the law we were taught, but politicians and other rich people never serve time for major crimes while the regular citizen is in prison for nothing under false accusation. We are under the control of criminals that control a crooked justice system. Openly criminal with no arrest, indictment or trial. The government of, by and for the people has been overthrown and is now of, by and for the criminals of the world and they are importing more as fast as they can to strengthen their hold over us.

        VERY TRUE !!

That's a load of Malarkey. They enabled it when they allowed passage of the Omnibus Bill. They knew it and anyone with an IQ above 70 knew it. We gave the Establishment the Majority.  They stabbed us in the back, and sold us out. We've seen what happened in Europe with the adherents of the Religion of Peace so we fund it to bring it here because we have one in the Oval Office, and his Handler, Valerie Jarrett living in the White House. What a great idea. What could go wrong ? This President and his Administration has never been less than honest with us, right ? All the Democrats and many of the Republicans have been bought and sold. Time to wake up America while there's still something left of our country and freedoms to salvage.

Hit the nail squarely on the head Robert Michael Krause!!!  The RINO and Establishment arm of the GOP needs to be put out the front door just about the time the blizzard blows through DC tonight and lock the door behind them. 

So they are outraged.  How about they do something besides whine.

So, why hasn't Congress impeached him yet?

That's a very good question and the latest answer I heard was that they would be called racists for impeaching "the first black president".  Well, I have news for them.  1) Obama is NOT the first black president 2) he is the greatest enemy this nation has EVER encountered via his handlers Soros and Jarrett and 3) Racist is a term of endearment compared to the name I have for them all.  They'd better start the wheels in motion that will have them called racists because it's not going to get any better. 

YES DIANNE

THE US CONSTITUTION DOES NOT MAKE A DISTINCTION OF WHAT RACE YOU ARE WHEN U IMPEACH A PRES 

THESE NO BACKBONE IDIOTS WILL GIVE LIP SERVICE NOT MUCH MORE

A few Republicans are outraged....yawn....the rest are up his ass.

Not one of them will lift a finger to oust Obama and his muslim cohorts  but they all come out to stop Trump ....that should tell us something ....

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
