“Does the President still stand by what he said last year when he said, ‘I am not the emperor of the United States; my job is to execute laws that are passed.’ Is that still operative?” asked Jonathan Karl, reporter for ABC, during Tuesday’s White House press briefing.
“Absolutely,” replied White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
“Not a king either?” asked Karl, to audience chuckles.
“That’s right,” said Earnest flatly.
“Because [Obama] was asked very specifically about the idea of expanding the deferred action executive order for the DREAMers to their parents. And he said September 17th last year on Telemundo, very clearly: ‘If we start broadening that, then essentially I would be ignoring the law in a way that would be very difficult to defend so that is not an option. Is that still off the table?" asked Karl
Note that all of Obama's hired liars always refer to Immigration as a "Broken System". Immigration works if the laws are enforced. They use this phrase"broken": as propaganda. If you tell a lie often enough it soon becomes fact. Reporters should respond with: "current Immigration laws have worked well for years, until we had a President and AG ignoring the law the make it look "Broken".
Also note that Josh Ernst , Liar-in-Chief, responds to Karl by refusing to say what Obama will do. He says we'll have to wait until Obama takes action on Amnesty before we know what his action will be, Sounds like Obamacare "We'll have to pass the bill before we can see what's in it." It is clear to anyone that Obama has made himself King, and that he and his staff believe that all his "subjects" are STUPID !
the real issue here are the 3 branches of government....and congress is there to act as a check and balance from a president doing exactly what Obama is and has been doing. the will of the people are not being taken in with amnesty. also Obama is blaming the republican congress for not doing anything about amnesty...well congress is not obligated to...the same way Obama is not obligated to pass a border security bill, even though that is part of his responsibility to protect our borders...not to pass amnesty. 3 branches of government that sometimes work together and sometimes they do not. what the president should have done 2 years ago was to sign a border security bill....and today there would probably be a senate and house agreement for some type of amnesty....instead we have open borders....thousands more illegals are coming through.....and chaos will be the results....lets hope the congress in jan only funds those agencies that need to be funded and amnesty funding is left out.
