This morning, President Obama announced a new evolution; he announced that the federal government would no longer do its job of protecting our nation’s borders. He dictated that the Department of Homeland Security would not deport illegals between the ages of 18 and 30 years old who have been here at least five years and have committed no felonies. I deliberately use the term illegal because that is how they got here, illegally. Crossing the border without prior approval and with no intention of doing what other immigrants have done to gain citizenship is a crime, hence illegal. The announcement goes farther though. Not only are they, the illegals, not going to be deported, they are also going to be granted work visas. This is bad news for those of us who are at least aware that the US Constitution exists. The administration unilaterally changed how it enforces law. It wasn’t even done through the over-used method of Executive Order.

     Article IV, Section 4 of the United States Constitution guarantees the role of the federal government to provide border security to the various border states. It is their job to prevent border incursions and to insure a republican form of government for the states. They clearly have no intention to fulfill their duty in this regard. In fact, they are doing everything possible to hamper it, including preventing the states from doing the job on their own. We have the debacle of “Fast and Furious” on the southern borders in which a  US Border Guard was killed, while, simultaneously, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano decries the border as being the safest it has ever been. Perhaps she and Eric Holder, Attorney General should ask those living near the border how safe they feel.

     This administration just arbitrarily shifted policy, disregarding the law. In 2010, during the time that the Democrats controlled both the House of Representatives and the Senate, brought a piece of legislation to a vote. It was called the Dream Act, standing for Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act. It was passed in the House, but public outcry reached the Senate prior to its vote, and it failed to pass there.  The opinion of We the People intimidated the Senators and kept them from voting for the legislation. Today, the major portions of this bill that failed to pass, was enacted by decree!

     So, now the federal government will not deport those illegals,18-30 years old who committed the crime of illegally crossing the border. Should a state, such as Arizona, detain an illegal, they will have to maintain them indefinitely, because they won’t move up the line for deportation. The state will be called racist by those in the administration, and probably sued by a corrupt Department of Justice. And don’t even think of checking the state voting rolls for those who may be trying to vote without being a citizen, like Florida is trying to do. You’ll be called a racist and sued by the Department of Justice.

     The administration has wanted amnesty for illegals ever since they came into office. Last year, in front of La Raza members, Obama said he wanted amnesty. He also implied that he wanted to go around Congress in his effort to get amnesty for illegals. Today, he did!  This is just the first step. First it is the young, then, under misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, the parents and then everyone will get amnesty. The question will be whether it can all be accomplished in time to grant them all citizenship and voting rights, whereupon they will all be handed pre-marked Democrat ballots this November.

     In the meantime, with all the illegals getting non-amnesty amnesty today, you can rest assured of one thing. Since they will all be granted work visas, they will be able to work, then send their money back to their families back home. The thing to keep in mind, they will be working, sanctioned by the administration, and the American citizens will not. In other words, Obama is favoring ILLEGALS over AMERICANS! Remember that in November!
