    Even after a historic midterm win, Republican confusion over how to respond to Obama on immigration is evidence of a changing party.It was a quiet meeting on the eve of a political explosion. At 4 p.m. on Wednesday, 30 or so members of the 2012 GOP freshman class of the House of Representatives gathered in a conference room in the Capitol Visitor Center for what’s become a monthly conclave. For the junior representatives, this was a chance to get some face time with Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). Everyone knew that the next evening, President Barack Obama planned to deliver an...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is threatening to reprise his role as a catalyst to a government shutdown, arguing on Sunday that Congress should use spending bills to block President Obama's recent executive action on immigration. Cruz rebutted suggestions that holding government funding hostage in order to prevent Obama's plan halting the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants from taking effect would hurt the GOP. "At the time you and a lot of folks in the press said what a disaster it was to stand up to Obamacare," Cruz told Fox News' Chris Wallace. "Let me point out, we just had a...

His reaction: “Whoa.”

    President Barack Obama's policy on immigration isn't just another new government program, says former House Speaker Newt Gingrich — it's a "new law, created by the executive without Constitutional authority." In the president's address, Gingrich writes, he described "what sounded like a reasonable plan to prioritize the deportation of felons, criminals, and gang members over the deportation of other people in the United States illegally." Gingrich says the White House actually announced its real policy in a memo from its Office of Legislative Affairs hours before Obama took to the podium Thursday night. That policy is a "17-point plan including...

There are upward of five videos of the president himself telling crowds (mostly Hispanic, in fact) that it would be illegal for him to act on his own....

It was a Schoolhouse Rock! parody that aired last night, mocking Obama’s latest immigration-related executive order and complete disregard for the constitutional process: It starts out with the familiar boy climbing the steps of Capitol Hill and asking what kind of bill is on the Hill with him. The bill responds with a jingle that he is an “immigration bill” and that he hopes he can be passed into law someday. Cue the President shoving the bill down the stairs before inviting his buddy,...

The next day the House of Representatives sued him for overreaching on ObamaCare, but despite a lot of understandably outraged yammering, it is not likely to follow suit or at least succeed in similarly challenging on constitutional grounds his immigration executive order.

    The Weekly Standard Magazine ^ | The December 1, 2014 Issue | Fred Barnes, executive editor
    There’s a lesson from President Obama’s first term that he should have learned long ago. It’s simple: On an issue that affects many millions of Americans, it’s best—even necessary—to have bipartisan support in Congress. Going forward in a purely partisan fashion is bound to cause national discord, increase polarization, and heighten distrust in Washington. Worse still, it means the issue will be controversial for years to come. The enduring unpopularity of Obamacare—indeed, the Republican commitment to repeal it—is an example of what can happen when bipartisanship is spurned. In this case, Obama and congressional Democrats made no effort to attract...

Their benign-sounding, if not downright boring name “the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Migration” helps hide them from the spotlight of controversy.

But when Obama says that the system is broken, he means that some parts of it still work and so he intends to break immigration all the way through to benefit his own corrupt political allies. That will hurt his own voters the most, but the Democratic Party has a notoriously masochistic relationship with its voting base. It beats them...

    Obama has claimed that the reasons he has taken this step of an executive order is because Congress had supposedly done nothing, and the steps he has taken will improve the immigration system. Let us, for the moment, assume his premise is entirely true. Here’s the problem: Executive orders have NOTHING to do with Congress. They are entirely within the purview of the Executive Branch (assuming they are legal, which, for the moment, I will grant the president). And since they are an entirely presidential matter, why has he not done anything with that power until now? The president has...

No statement from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Oh, right, this is a Democratic president, so it’s okay. His reference to Exodus 22:1 and 23:9 is perfectly acceptable. But like most politicians who pillage the Bible for their own purposes, Obama plucked verses out of context. “Do not mistreat or oppress a foreigner, for you were foreigners in Egypt”...

    It's not just deportation policy. As I described in a recent feature, Obama has effectively modified or refused to enforce key provisions of laws ranging from the Affordable Care Act to No Child Left Behind. He really has expanded the scope of executive power in some novel ways. So at a moment when many liberals are cheering Obama for taking action on deportation policy, it's worth considering how future Republican presidents could use these precedents to their own ends. Several commentators have been floating various possibilities about how the GOP could take advantage of those powers in ways Democrats would...

    As justification for the President's controversial executive order, his administration cites the Constitution's Take Care Clause. The problem for Obama is that this constitutional provision, instructing the President to "take care that the Laws be faithfully executed," gives him discretion about how to enforce the law, not discretion about whether to enforce the law. President Obama admitted as much earlier this year in an interview with Univision, explaining that "the reason that these deportations are taking place is, Congress said, ‘You have to enforce these laws.’ … And I cannot ignore those laws any more than I could ignore, you...

    Maybe the best way to fight the Obama power grab is to show how it opens up the floodgates. So maybe all the GOP candidates should now start talking about what executive orders they would impose. After all, if we establish the precedent that the POTUS can flout the will of Congress by using EO's, then we would naturally start expecting presidents to use that to pursue their agenda, and we would want to know in advance for which issues they would likely consider using that new found power. So let's put that out there! If this precedent gets established,...

MADDOW: The first thing the President announced tonight in his three part plan was yet further resources to the border, yet more resources in terms of stopping people from crossing in the first place, catching them when they do, and sending them back. [Republican operative Steve Schmidt] said no Republican in the country believes that is true. That’s obviously a fake assertion. What’s behind the refusal...

    Outgoing Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) told reporters Wednesday that President Barack Obama was seeking to grant legal protection to millions of “illiterate” immigrants who would then become Democratic voters by 2016. “The social cost will be profound on the U.S. taxpayer — millions of unskilled, illiterate, foreign nationals coming into the United States who can’t speak the English language,” Bachmann said. “The president has a very single-minded vision. He’s looking at new voters for 2016.” Bachmann told the Washington Post’s Robert Costa that “illiterate” wasn’t her word: “I’ve been down to the border. The reason why I would say that...

    . Free Republic's Jim Robinson called for a "National Day of Reckoning" anti-illegal amnesty this past Thursday (2014-11-20). You may reference that post (and it's 200+ replies) at this internet link: National Day of Reckoning ================================================ "Today" is the time to START preparations. It's known that DemocraticUnderground (DU)and other such folks visit and troll Free Republic. Accordingly, I propose that we use (for the time being) a more secure communications link (personal e-mail) to plan our actions. I plan to set-up a internet website link as a communication portal for those interested. The link will be shared with those we...

    Obama's Executive Immigration Order was a brilliant move on his part. Politically, that is. Obama needed to cater to the radical anti-border crowd, but he also needed to limit the legal challenges that would have mounted from all directions with a blanket amnesty. So what did he do? Nothing. No seriously, Obama didn't really do much of anything on the action front. He basically proclaimed that our government (his government these days) will no longer deport illegal immigrants. Obama made it sound like he was doing a lot. He made it sound like he was giving the radical amnesty groups...

    GOP's Sessions: Obama's amnesty 'worse than you think'WASHINGTON – Phone lines are melting on Capitol Hill with outraged citizens calling their elected representatives to complain about the president’s order effectively granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. A number of Capitol Hill offices closed today for the Thanksgiving recess, but aides report hearing from upset voters even at the offices in lawmakers’ home states. The offices of Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, confirmed a flood of complaints, and an aide to Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., told WND, “We are getting tons of phone calls to block executive amnesty.” “I...

Honest Americans are still gasping from President Obama’s speech last night announcing his own amnesty program, based on no legal authority, for at least five million illegal aliens. I warned you last week about Obama’s amnesty assault on our nation. Unfortunately, my summary needs no update from last week, but should reassure you that we are on the...

    LAS VEGAS, USA – US President Barack Obama staunchly defended his unilateral move to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation Friday, November 21 pledging to implement his controversial plan despite furious criticism from congressional opponents. "I have come back to Del Sol to tell you, I'm not giving up. I will never give up," Obama insisted at the Las Vegas, Nevada high school where he launched his immigration reform efforts two years ago. "We're going to keep on working with members of Congress to make permanent reform a reality," he added. "But until that day comes, there are actions...

    President Barack Obama and his surrogates argue that the president’s executive actions will hold illegal immigrants accountable and force them to pay their “fair share of taxes.” However there is a big question as to whether these illegal immigrants will be a net gain or loss to the Treasury. Thursday night, President Obama announced a series of executive actions on immigration, including providing legal status to nearly five million illegal immigrants. While part of Obama’s argument for legalizing millions of immigration law breakers is that they will now have to pay taxes, Fox Business’ Stuart Varney, Avik Roy at Forbes,...
