Would This President Do The Unthinkable?

Barack ObamaThe 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?

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
