  • Boehner: Obama will cement ‘legacy of lawlessness’

    The Hill ^ | 7/31/14 | Peter Schroeder
    President Obama would cement his “legacy of lawlessness” if he takes further executive action on immigration, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Thursday. One day after the House voted to authorize a lawsuit against the president, Boehner threatened that Obama would only bolster their case for executive overreach if he took more unilateral steps to reduce deportations. “He’ll be sacrificing the integrity of our laws on the altar of political opportunity, and I can guarantee you the American people would hold him to account,” he told reporters. “The actions he’s threatening to take are not about policy. They’re about politics.”

    Surveillance drones that hunt drug smugglers along the Mexican border could soon be grounded. Installation of pole-top cameras and ground sensors to intercept illegal crossings might be delayed. About $44 million has already been diverted from the government's health-related accounts, including the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to pay for food, beds, clothing and medical care for the crush of unaccompanied minors who have crossed the Southwestern border. And that's just the beginning. With the expected failure of Congress to agree Thursday on emergency funds to cope with the border crisis, the Obama...

    Long before Barack Obama ran for president, Cecilia Munoz was on the front lines of the immigration debate. In 2000, she was named a MacArthur genius fellow for her work on civil rights and immigration. When Obama won the election in 2008, one of his first orders of business was persuading Munoz to join his White House staff. Those were the heady days when legislative change seemed possible, and an activist like Munoz could dream of achieving her goal from an office on the second floor of the West Wing. It hasn’t turned out the way many Obama supporters hoped,...

    House Republicans were sprinting to the finish line Thursday to secure every last vote to pass an emergency funding measure to address the humanitarian crisis on the southern border in a dramatic and chaotic final day of the summer session. Though a few House Democrats will join the GOP majority to back a $659 million emergency funding package, Republicans don’t want to rely on them to get the necessary votes to secure final passage. Still, some conservatives were reticent ahead of votes expected Thursday afternoon, even after House Republican leaders threw some red meat to the right by adding a...

    The White House torched House Republicans’ plan to vote to block President Barack Obama from granting deportation relief to any new people in the country illegally. Republicans say that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has acted as a magnet for the surge in unaccompanied children across the border, even though recent immigrants are not eligible. And Republicans are demanding that Obama not expand that relief amid reports he’s considering granting “administrative amnesty” and work permits to as many as 5 million more unauthorized immigrants.

    Immigration has emerged as perhaps President Obama's worst issue -- definitely for today, and maybe of his entire presidency -- when it comes to public perception. A new poll from AP-GfK shows more than two-thirds of Americans (68 percent) disapprove of Obama's handling of the immigration issue in general. Just 31 percent approve -- down from 38 percent two months ago. When you separate those most passionate about the issue, the difference is even more stark, with 57 percent opposed and just 18 percent in favor. That's more than three-to-one. We tried to find an issue on which Obama has...

    Just 108 of the thousands of unaccompanied minors illegally crossing the U.S. border have been granted asylum in 2014, in a process that often takes more than a year, members of the U.S. Congress heard on Tuesday. But with immigrants usually making their formal asylum requests more than 10 months after first being apprehended, most of those applicants arrived the previous year. “Of the 167 unaccompanied children asylum cases adjudicated on the merits in [Fiscal Year 2014] through the third quarter, 108 have been granted asylum status,” Rodríguez told a House panel.

(New York Times, July 7, 2014: "Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking.") The problem, we've been told, is that a loophole in the sex trafficking law mandates these hearings -- or "removal proceedings." But there is no such loophole.

A long time, certainly under several presidents, whether it’s called “amnesty” or whether euphemisms are used to substitute for the word. But there’s a reason Congress hasn’t done much about it in a long time, and that’s because the American people don’t want it and Congress is at least somewhat responsive to the people, despite the fact that many politicians and those who give them money are more interested in amnesty than the general public is. Presidents have understand that, too, and have also understood...

    This week, as I have been predicting for months, President Barack Obama announced that he would be considering unprecedented executive action to provide legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. His goal is not to solve the immigration crisis -- you don't grant legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants, then leave the back door wide open if you're interested in solving the problem. His goal is not to help illegal immigrants -- he instead leaves them in limbo by granting them temporary work permits, rather than blanket amnesty. His goal is trolling. Trolling is a practice whereby a person...

Citing a friend, Pelosi said that “we cannot have deportation without representation,” and she praised the groups that were working to help the detained children.

Here’s the statement: The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants. This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens. Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with...

Such a large-scale move on immigration could scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed.

I cannot confirm that they were started and perpetrated right here, at home, butt the record speaks for itself.So I’m just warning everyone: don’t get caught not doing your fair share: “According to our records, you haven’t chipped in to fight back,” the email continued. “Can we count on you at this critical...

    Conservatives Republicans and liberal Democrats have dug in their heels on immigration and Glenn Beck has picked his side. But he doesn’t think it’s the winning one. “I have to tell you, I’m gravely concerned because I don’t think we’re going to win this immigration battle,” Beck said on his radio show Monday. “I really don’t. I think it’s going to go the way it always does. Because they’re (liberals) going to win the PR battle. And the president is going to change the subject and he’s going to make it about impeachment.” Some high-profile Republicans, like former Alaska Gov....

    Politics: Give us your poor, your tired, your future Democrats waiting to be registered. That's what some in the party are saying as they urge the president to pursue immigration goals even if it hurts in the '14 midterms. In other words, damn the political torpedoes and full speed ahead in the fundamental demographic and political transformation of America. "You'll always have members whose political vulnerability they tie entirely to immigration," said Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz. "We didn't make progress when we were in the majority because we were being protective of those (members) on immigration reform. At some point...

    President Obama is practically shouting from the rooftops that he's about to grant a new unilateral amnesty to as many as six million illegal aliens, but the topic of immigration does not come up in a new op-ed from Speaker John Boehner explaining his lawsuit against Obama for lawlessness. In the op-ed, Boehner explains why he chose to focus the lawsuit only on Obamacare. “On the advice of legal experts, the House action will focus on his decision to extend--twice--the deadline to institute the employer mandate in his healthcare law,” Boehner wrote. “We believe this targeted lawsuit offers the best...

    Monday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) took to the floor of the U.S. Senate to criticize President Barack Obama’s attempt to "unilaterally implement large portions of his congressionally rejected amnesty bill by executive action." Sessions explained the "constitutional crisis" the president would cause with his plan "to issue executive orders in direct contradiction of long-established American law that would grant administrative amnesty and work permits to five million, to six million persons that are unlawfully in this country." "American people will not be mocked. they have begged and pleaded for our nation´s immigration law to be enforced for 30 or 40

    Amnesty: With word out about U.S. coddling of Central American illegal immigrants, Haitians and people from much farther abroad are flooding our shores to get their slice. This is what comes when politics trumps law. Some of the strongest voices speaking in favor of amnesty for the latest flood of illegal immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, such as columnist George Will, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the Catholic bishops, have used the hardship and mercy argument to scrap the law and permit the illegals to stay. "The idea that we can't assimilate these 8-year-old 'criminals' with their...

    SNIP Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases -- those caught in the act of crossing the border. The agency prioritizes deportation for felons, repeat offenders, gang members and others with a serious criminal record. SNIP This is why illegal immigrant activists can protest outside the White House without worrying too much about ICE. They did so at lunchtime on Monday, marching across Lafayette Park to the White House and advocating a reprieve for illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. –...
