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 governors radio program Friday that he successfully sued his own states governor and won over a similar separation-of-powers issue.
I will tell you that Im not without experience on this Im prepared to bring a suit and seek a court order to stop implementation of this policy, King said

Keep up the pressure, folks. Contact your Representatives!
This CAN NOT STAND!
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.
A republican congresman with a spine...happily surprised.
He not only needs to sue, but bring the king and his administration up on charges of treason and not upholding his oath.
Excellent. This man has gonads!
Part time jobs were my key to getting through and paying for college.
Barry has no idea how damaging this new policy will be.
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?
Great! Now where are the rest of his colleagues?
Don’t know if a private suit will fly, but whatever ties up Obama for a while is a good thing.
What could be better: An uptodate deportation list with valid names and contact information.
Note to Romney: Pete King for head of Homeland Security.
Where the hell are the Oathkeepers? Do they truly exist or are they simply part of conservative folklore? Nobody is protecting American citizens from this anti-Christ in the White Hut.
“Barry has no idea how damaging this new policy will be.”
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.
The only one in Congress who apparently has a spine.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
Thank God that we have at least ONE Republican who has a "pair"....and brass ones at that.....
Too bad our "Weeper of the House" (Bone-er) still has his secured tucked away in some lock box
right before the immaculation in 2009:
Obama is prepared to really take power and begin to RULE from day one
Valerie Jarret co-chair of the Messiah's transition team.
Let’s hope this will be his biggest B.A.C.K.F.I.R.E. ever!
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.
“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.”
Excellent. Kudos, Rep. King.
Obummer and Rubio deeply saddened.
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?
Oh, my mistake. I thought it was Peter King of the Homeland Security Committee. At least someone’s speaking out. Allen West was out there this morning too.
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.
yeah...he will ban your guns...
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 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?
Napolitano needs to be in prison.
Support King. He is acting bravely in my view. It is a shame it has come to this.
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.
Myth. No real resolve. The cost of acting is too high.
We are all just too old, the kids have to pick up the banner now.
We have to come to grips with the reality that both parties have worked very hard to bring about the New World Order.
Sue Hell. Immediate Impeachment.
“he successfully sued his own states governor and won “
Great news, crappy writing. Does “successfully sued” ever mean anything except that the plaintiff won? Anybody seen “successfully sued - and lost -”?
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
May I copy this to send to my reps with my signature? Pithy.
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.
I just called both offices...thanks for the numbers. Both were very nice and thanked me for suppoting them
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.
Good for Steve King!!!
Brady’s office wanted my phone and address. I told them not to call or write asking for money. He said they might want to write me about their position. I said not to waste their or my time. I don’t need anymore form letters from them that are like cold spittle, they just insult my intelligence.
Just do what needs to be done, grow a pair and raise hell!
Hopefully we'll *ALL* get a chance to have him represent us in the future, and not just Iowa!
I have been thinking on this some more. I do appreciate King standing up.
What I can hear now though is “NO STANDING”. Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.
great picture...the expression on his face remings me of Beldar Conehead getting ready to Narfle the Garthok.
Well, now we have one Republican who has spoken out against Obamas dictatorial behavior. Have we heard from any others?
