The Washington Examiner reports today that the United States Border Patrol is now under orders to release all illegal aliens from detention and not order them to appear at deportation hearings. Further, the whereabouts of the released invaders is not to be tracked. Here’s a clip from the Examiner:
In a shocking reversal of policy, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents are being told to release illegal immigrants and no longer order them to appear at deportation hearings, essentially a license to stay in the United States, a key agent testified Thursday.
What’s more, the stand down order includes a requirement that the whereabouts of illegals released are not to be tracked…
Now, depending upon whose numbers you choose to believe there is a minimum of eleven million, or a maximum of fifty million, illegal aliens currently living within the United States.
Meanwhile with all of the uglier-by-the-day acrimonious turmoil going on inside the GOP for the presidential nomination, and with Socialist Bernie Sanders (who now says he’s not a Socialist) in position to topple Hillary Clinton from her front-runner position in the Democrat nomination race, I’m going to pose a question here:
Would President Barack Obama dare to issue an Executive Order, proclaiming a blanket amnesty for all illegal aliens in the nation?
Let’s go one step further:
Would Mr. Obama dare to include within that same executive order a clause which confers citizenship on those illegal aliens, in plenty of time for them to register and vote in the 2016 national election?
Such an action would instantly convert the USA into a de facto one-party nation.
Think that’s far-fetched? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Let me ask another question or four here:
Who would try to stop the President from doing that? Paul Ryan and the House of Representatives? Really? Impeachment proceedings and a trial in the Senate? The Repubs don’t have nearly enough votes there for the two-thirds majority required to convict and remove Mr. Obama from office.
Where in the Constitution does it say that the President has the power to seize a private corporation, fire its executives, and put the corporation under the auspices of the federal government? Look what happened to the General Motors and Chrysler corporations, not to mention the President’s attempt to block executive pay bonuses for AIG.
One can credibly argue that the U.S. military forces launching air strikes within Libya, during the Arab Spring uprising against, and the overthrow of, Moammar Ghadaffi, without required Congressional consultation, were a violation of the War Powers Act.
So, what’s to stop the President now from a final act of fundamental transformation of this nation?
