Rep. Steve King to sue Obama administration over new immigration policy
The Daily Caller ^ | 6/15/12 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 06/15/2012 12:17:58 PM PDT by ColdOne

owa Republican Rep. Steve King said Friday that he plans to sue the Obama administration to halt implementation of its newly announced selective illegal immigration law enforcement policy. He told Mike Huckabee on the former Arkansas governor’s radio program Friday that he successfully sued his own state’s governor — and won — over a similar separation-of-powers issue.

“I will tell you that — I’m not without experience on this — I’m prepared to bring a suit and seek a court order to stop implementation of this policy,” King said

Come January 21, 2013 there will be a new team on the job. One does hope Obama's forces acquire the names of all these people with their addresses ~ which will make it much easier to pick them up when the new President rescinds the Obama Executive Order.

Now if we can just get Hannity to stop calling it Amnesty ~ which implies some sort of use of the Presidential pardoning power. We don't want that ~ this is just parole ~ already authorized by law.

He not only needs to sue, but bring the king and his administration up on charges of treason and not upholding his oath.

But a law suit costs money. I’m willing to donate to this cause to help. But if you are from South Carolina and go to King’s site, it won’t accept a comment from an out-a-stater. So where’s the donate button?

Don’t know if a private suit will fly, but whatever ties up Obama for a while is a good thing.

Yes; he does. He knows exactly how damaging it’ll be; it’s what he’s counting on. He’s a Muslim and will do whatever it takes to destroy America.

This is what I sent to Tom Price, 6th District Georgia:

I must've missed the news that the Country is no longer a Republic, but has become the dictatorial regime of Baraq Hussein 0bama. How else can he disregard the duly passed laws of The United States and declare that the immigration laws will be enforced per his liking? IMPEACH and REMOVE his ass immediately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

King is our only representative with guts.. Sad that standing up for our laws takes guts, huh.. Rand Paul is another patriot with his Bill to outlaw use of drones without a warrant.

The problem is that with Holder suing states over their voter ID laws EVEN THOUGH THE SCOTUS UPHELD VOTER ID LAWS WITH THEIR APRIL 2008 RULING, it's clear 0bama could give a rats azz about our SCOTUS and will do whatever he wants anyway.

I just called my congressmann’s office and told them what I thought about Obama’s announcement. They were not aware of King’s announcement to sue, so I told them about it and strongly encouraged my congressman to join in the suit.

I am getting through to the offices of congressmen in washington repeatedly and without waiting. This tells me very few are calling or as outraged as I am.

I am calling to offer support where appropriate and criticism as well.

It is a shame, maybe twitter has become the method of choice to communicate?

I don't think so...unless you want to get RULED by the RINOs instead of being RULED by the zer0bama regime...

....after the Gabby Gifford shooting.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., one of a few anti-gun Republicans in Congress, is proposing a prohibition on firearms within 1000 feet of a president, vice-president, member of Congress or federal judge. A law like this would be impossible to enforce.

Yes, 800,000 ‘job seekers’ named Juan Hernandez is what’s going to happen.

Mexicans may be a lot of things, but they aren’t stupid, especially when it comes to ‘the system’.

How do you think all those BILLIONS of illegal tax refunds that Americans can’t get ended up in Mexico?

A lawsuit is nice.

A motion to cut off funding for implementation immediately would be far more effective.

Is anyone around here old enough to remember when North Vietnam reinvaded the South a mere two years after signing on to the cease-fire to end the war?

The South Vietnam government asked merely for naval support to halt the invasion with near zero risk to U.S. troops. President Ford agreed to that support under the terms of the cease fire. The jackass majority in congress almost immediately passed a House resolution to cut off funding for that purpose and the North Vietnamese cruised in. The rest is history.

Why can't the spineless GOP show similar resolve in standing up to ObaMao?

Support King. He is acting bravely in my view. It is a shame it has come to this.
202.225.4426

I simply searched for his office, found the phone number, called it, got right through. Asked the staffer to please thank the congressman for having a spine and giving me a little hope on an otherwise hopeless feeling day.

She was very cordial and said thank you.

Did the same thing with Lamar Smith’s office. He has suggested impeachment proceedings as this is action today is unlawful.

I didn’t do the same with Kevin Brady’s office. He is my congressman and he never does a thing. You gotta hold a mirror to his face to see if he is still breathing.

Great news, crappy writing. Does “successfully sued” ever mean anything except that the plaintiff won? Anybody seen “successfully sued - and lost -”?

Obama just gave Amnesty to illegals. What Obama just did is illegal and an impeachable offense. Ok democrats and Obama tried to pass the Dream Act Amnesty .Republicans blocked it. So Obama passes the Dream act anyway by decree. wtf? Impeach this creature now.

Romney is against Amnesty. Tom Tancredo endorsed Romney.Where are those that tell us Romney is worse?

What hasn’t this Obama done to destroy America, added 5 trilion in debt on us, gave Amnesty to illegals(bypassing of Congress), sent our jobs to China, exploded government size and power, used EPA to destroy what’s left of American industry, gave away our U.S. sovereignty to the UN and China etc.

Republicans are the majority in the House. Though they’re not conservative enough to rise to this, or evidently any challenge to their authority. So at least one, or perhaps a couple of members need to sue.

It’s pathetic.

I called my rep Kevin McCarthy and told the girl he no longer has my vote, that I will no longer vote down ticket since we are being ruled by the President only. As a matter of fact I want all Congress people fired and I see no reason to pay them their princely salaries and perks any longer.
She said Mr. Carthy does not agree with this policy. I asked so what is he going to do about it? She said I don’t know. So my answer was....he is probably so upset he will write a strongly worded letter....not good enough.
I finished with the Republicans better show some spine on this or they are done.
