Wow. Just wow. Just when you think Obama couldn’t be any more stupid.
He truly hates America. If this is what he is doing and refuses to take care of our own, someone needs to Impeach him. Right now. Not tomorrow. NOW. Obama is apparently trying to give MILLIONS in funding to illegal immigrants in Social Security and Disability benefits. Here’s the kicker. He can’t and that’s illegal. But he’s trying to do it anyway.
What an idiot.
Does the president of the United States have the power to unilaterally tell millions of individuals who are violating federal law that he will not enforce that law against them now, that they may continue to violate that law in the future and that he will take action that makes them eligible for federal benefit programs for which they are not currently eligible due to their unlawful status?
Through Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, President Barack Obama is telling the Supreme Court exactly this right now.
The solicitor general calls what Obama is doing “prosecutorial discretion.”
He argues that under this particular type of “prosecutorial discretion,” the executive can make millions of people in this country illegally eligible for Social Security, disability and Medicare.
This is ridiculous.
The U.S. Constitution imposes this straightforward mandate on the president: “(H)e shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”
When the Supreme Court agreed in January to hear U.S. v. Texas, it made a telling request. It asked the parties to argue whether Obama’s DAPA policy “violates the Take Care Clause of the Constitution.”
The Obama administration has taken care of just one thing here: It has constructed a convoluted — and unconvincing argument — it hopes will provide the activists on the Supreme Court with a cover story to explain why this president need not faithfully execute the nation’s immigration laws.
And all this instead of helping real Americans. Obama, GO AWAY!
