THIS IS A DISTRACTION, NOTHING MORE!!! Obama has simply stated that it is his policy for the INS/ICE to do what they have been doing for YEARS under his administration. It is not legally binding on subsequent administrations (HELLO, ROMNEY, OPPORTUNITY HERE), and can be used in minority Democrat communities to demonstrate that Obama will bend over backwards to provide illegals with job programs and entitlements, while leaving CITIZENS to ROT…..
He is the one. The one is not bound by silly crap like laws.
Go get ‘em, Steve!
This summer is slated to be the worst summer job market for American teenagers and young adults since WWII. So the scofflaw-in-chief has the unmitigated gall to role out the unilateral action of granting foreign national scofflaws work visas which the Congress has not permitted.
Roy Beck of NumbersUSA:
“Today, in an unconstitutional move, President Obama thwarted the will of Congress and shunned the 20 million under and unemployed Americans by announcing he will grant work permits to 2-3 million illegal workers. Congress on three occasions rejected DREAM Act amnesties in part to protect unemployed workers born here or who came here legally.”
I am joining with others to fight this by phoning, emailing, and faxing the White House, senators, congressmen, and the Department of Homeland Security.
This lawlessness travesty can be stopped.
Obama Announces Amnesty for Hundreds of Thousands Today!
We need your help NOW to stop the Obama Administration’s DREAM Act!
This morning, the Department of Homeland Security announced that it intends to ignore the Constitution, usurp Congressional authority, and administratively implement the DREAM Act. The announcement came through an official policy memo, signed by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, followed by a conference call led by Napolitano herself. According to this announcement, effective immediately, the Obama Administration will stop deporting illegal aliens who qualify for the DREAM Act by granting these illegal aliens “deferred action” and work authorization.
Deferred action status is what DHS grants when it decides, in its own discretion, not to remove an illegal alien. Those who receive deferred action usually also receive work authorization and DHS has confirmed that illegal aliens granted deferred action pursuant to the new policy memo (dated today, June 15, 2012) will be eligible for work authorization. There is no statutory basis for deferred action status, as it is merely referred to in the federal regulations (See, e.g. USCIS Ombudsman memo, Apr. 6, 2007 (citing 8 C.F.R. 274a.12(c)(14)). Even more troubling, deferred action is not subject to judicial review. (Reno v. American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Comm., 525 U.S. 471, 484, 492 (1999))
While this new policy is effective immediately, Secretary Napolitano has directed U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to create an application process that will be fully operational within 60 days. The DHS estimates that nearly 1 million illegal aliens will be given a reprieve through its new policy! (To read more details about the announcement, please see our website.)
FAIR is urging all of our members, activists, and friends to LOUDLY voice their objection to the Obama Administration’s new policy. We need the Obama Administration to hear the voices of Americans across the country who believe in the rule of law, otherwise it will only hear kudos from the amnesty lobby.
Please call the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and your members of Congress and tell them:
You believe in the rule of law; it is the bedrock of our great nation.
You want an immigration system with integrity and our immigration laws enforced.
Congress, not the Executive Branch, has sole authority to establish our immigration laws; it is the responsibility of the Executive Branch to enforce them.
You object to rewarding illegal immigration through “deferred action” or any other executive maneuver.
It not only undermines the rule of law, but only encourages more illegal immigration.
It also is an act of shameless political pandering five months before the presidential election.

Romney should speak out against the unauthorized grab of power by Obummer, but should be strong about the constitutional/conservation position — borders, language, culture — and not weaken on this in order to get votes.
hello! what happened to the rule of law…what about
all those that live by the rule of law, those that went through
the naturalization process, ….this is just wrong.
an affront to the idea of the united states, its founding!
this is bullshxt.
As I understand it, those that have been waiting to enter this country legally, will have to be put on hold in order to process these illegals that Obama is giving the green cards to. those that obey the laws are getting thrown under the bus by Obama, as usual!!

Transparency and Open Government
Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies
SUBJECT: Transparency and Open Government
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.
Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public.
Government should be participatory. Public engagement enhances the Government’s effectiveness and improves the quality of its decisions. Knowledge is widely dispersed in society, and public officials benefit from having access to that dispersed knowledge. Executive departments and agencies should offer Americans increased opportunities to participate in policymaking and to provide their Government with the benefits of their collective expertise and information. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public input on how we can increase and improve opportunities for public participation in Government.

Thank You Rep King for doing what needs to be done.
They are dissolving you as a people and dismantling your republic.
You are a hindrance to the elitists plans and the NWO.
They are going to replace you.
The communists are doing the same here in Australia.
It is hard to spot an Anglo/Saxon in downtown Sydney these days.
They have been working at this for decades like thieves in the night; when no-one is looking.
They use any and every opportunity to push for open borders and massive immigration both legal and illegal from third world hell-holes.
These days we sometimes have several boatloads of illegal immigrants arriving daily under the Fabian communist Gillard’s government.
The traitorous globalist communists in charge are creating a people and voter base more to their liking … more malleable, more likely to vote socialist.
obama and Holder are as corrupt as they come. Congress does not have the will to impeach them. The media is still protecting obama, for reasons I cannot fathom. An obama exposee would be the story of the century. Our only recourse seems to be to hope they get voted out next election.
I agree sscooterr, but the rule of law went out the window when obama bought General Motors and nothing was done; then again when he (and not congress) decided payment for the BP spill. There are many other examples like the executive decisions when congress was in session and over-regulation through fed. agencies, usurping or bypassing the authority of congress but I am preaching to the choir here.
What we are dealing with right now is the decision of a president that flat-out violates the Constitution he has sworn an oath to uphold. What we are in now is impeachment territory.
Obama will not be impeached. The House of Representatives can Call for his Impeachment, but the actual impeachment has to be initiated by the Senate Leader Harry Reid. Since Harry Reid actually wrote the Dream Act, this will never occur. We can only vote Obama out of Office in November, and Pray that he doesn’t do something to cancel out or void out the Elections. My gut feeling says that He and especially Michelle will not leave the White House on January 20th Quietly. Maybe instead of stealing all the Furniture, Dishes and Silverware like the Clinton’s did, they will burn it to the ground. They do get very angry very quickly.
What is this fucking emperor gonna try to decree next?
The rule of law and the constitution went out the window the day Zero was sworn in.
If he wins in November, we are screwed.
If he loses in November, as a lame duck he’ll wreak havoc.
Then we can arrest him for treason.
Today’s latest jobs for illegals ploy is an illegal distraction. But Fast and Furious, security leaks, the vetting, and the lousy economy won’t go away.
But Emudude, this is essentially instituting the Dream Act which was voted down by Congress. The president (and I refuse to capitalize) is to enforce the laws of the country, not make up new ones. This is illegal, this is unconstitutional. At what point is it time for Congress to act?
You know he has an end game plan, and all his lib elites and advisors from everywhere probably have come up with many ploys to keep him in power, and also things they want to get done, quickly, somehow (not involving Congress for instance) before he is out of power.
One side effect of this is to get around states that have laws punishing employers who hire illegals. Now they will be able to hire them because they have their cards. Screw you American worker, step to the rear PLEASE!
Myrtle, unfortunately, Congress (except for the few good Republicans that are trying to SUE Obama), will do nothing about Obama. The Senate is HIS. No Matter what he does, it will be supported by Harry Reid, and more than Half of the Senate. I Fear what Obama will do when (or If) he loses in November. He will have from November 3rd till January 19th to perform all sorts of Havoc before leaving Office. Like the Iranians burning the Oil Wells as they left Kuwait when they Lost the First Gulf War.
Separated at Birth: Martin Bashir and …?
I would not sue Barack Obama over this. I would embarrass him. Every day. Challenge why he circumvented congress. Ask him why he does not trust democracy. If he is president, why does he need to do what he did today? Isn’t it true he did it solely to pander to Latino voters?
@ MN Jim: ” …hope they get voted out next election.”
Gotta do more than HOPE.
Thank You Steve, Blue Sky , and Old Dude.
“the Dream Act which was voted down by Congress”
Sorry, can’t resist adding this detail -
…not just voted down by Congress, but voted down by Congress THREE Times!
And yes, this is unconstitutional -
The Constitution gives immigration policy powers to Congress alone… the POtuS has no authority to give a de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
New American Thinker article posted today:
If We Took the Constitution Seriously, Obama Would Be Impeached
Some great info ty all.
Obama’s decree states illegals under 30 ? So they will reproduce, make a citizen and never leave.
Many of these illegals have been living off the system for years.
1 they just talked to on the news arrived when he was 9,he is now an undocumented ATTORNEY.And you paid for it.
The gentleman from Australia hit on something important.
The EU signed some sort of immigration agreement in the early 90′s (i think) with the ME.It was kept extremely quiet but it was signed at the UN.
Could Clinton have done the same to us ?
This reeks of UN,socialism and redistribution .
Every western country started experiencing large immigrations at the same time………………..all immigrants are 3rd world to developed nations.
I think fjordman wrote about the EU/ME agreement .I’ll look for the article.
Steve King, dwarfed in the corn fields with corn that’s as high as an elephant’s eye, is seeking to get noticed again.
We feel for you Iowa…
O’Reilly was on tonight saying the poor illegal alien children are just victims, blah, blah. Maybe ol Bill would like to help the border states pay for those illegals. The costs are absorbed by the border states and harvard types sit in judgement. The illegal children also skew the border states education ratings downward. This gives the elites a chance to denigrate the people that live in the border states as uneducated, etc. A load of bullshit from all the media – including Fox.
What? How come my latest comment didn’t get posted?
So my 16 year old son who has applied for every job known here in a heavily dem and corrupt district can’t get a job. But Barry just put 800 thousand illegals into the workforce? Wtf? I pay taxes for this!!
Lissen, if it were up to me, I’d cut a deal with Mexico to swap Oprah for any amount of Mexicans. Then the US would have a real reason to enforce the immigration laws.
it’s interesting that it’s ND and SK & AB.
The middle.(the real america)
Rush is right this is the hill.
It is all out War.
You Are the Bravest Souls I know.
You Are The best.
This is epic.
It Doesn’t get better than this…..
When they’re all made legal be sure they get their free cellphones too. On my dime..
where you been lotta shit going down do you need a SPINE implant or are you makin money
At least he is making the mexicans happy, the first dream act shouldn’t have happened, it was supposed to end all the illegals but instead it started them rushing in to wait for the next nightmare to Americans to pass and now it has.
Obama says it’s the right thing to do, maybe to get you votes, if it’s the right thing, then do it the right way.
Here is the grand exualted poo poo head getting a dose of his own medicine snd i hope it makes him ill
Save this country. Save the United States of America.
First of all the Romster needs to quick pussy footing trying to appease all sides and come out right and say his first day in office along w/the everything else on the long list he will reverse this. So far from what I have read he is being mambie pambie.
Second of all check out Rush w/this chick, she doesn’t even bother to try to hide her glee.
Third of all EB barry cannot be shamed, he has no sense of conscience.
@BlueSky….you and I will call, but will anyone else? Americans should be livid over this and be raising holy hell. Everyone always asks “What is it going to take?
What will the last straw be?” If this isn’t it I don’t know what is. At this point I am not so sure that if he orders our guns to be taking away Americans will rise up. Too many people are still sitting on their asses and not getting involved. It is a sad day for America.
B. Hussien Obama would agive members of al-Qaeda amnesty if he thought the would vote for him in the upcoming election. The guys a traitor. Top secret leaks anyone?
All right, someone in Congress with a pair.
For the record, I don’t so much begrudge the people that fall under this end-run around Congress. So long as they actually want to be legal and contributing members of society, what should anyone care? The problem is, I don’t buy that every single illegal in America is some put-upon soul yearning to free. More than enough are here to cause trouble and to lighten Mexico’s burden. Throw those bums out and keep the ones that want to be productive members of society. But of course, make the latter go to the end of the line while those that worked for citizenship and weren’t here illegally get their reward.
What needs to be done. Start asking any young Illegal where in the hell are your parents. If you do not comply then you are aiding and abetting.
Then Az.,Tx.,NM and Calf. can send the parents back.
7 out of 10 young people seeking summer jobs didn’t get them this year.
Wonder how the unions and race-baiters are going to spin this. I mean, after all, didn’t Obama move one group of people of color ahead of the line against Holder’s “these are my people” (of color)?
No obama will give these illegals the right to vote.That is what this is all about.
Someone tell me if its to hard to round up illegal immigrants then how the hell does the administration know there are only 800.0000 illegals between the ages of 15 and 30?
How do they know we have 14 million if its to hard to find them all?
Israel just rounded up 70.0000 illegals and deported them back to the Sudan.
Of course those guys were easy to spot but then so are illegals.
I want to see every Republican sign on to this.
Those who don’t should be thrown out of the Party.
That POS usurper has the backs of his fellow illegals. Thank you Rep. King. Where are your fellow countrymen????
Guys there are other things that we can be doing in addition to emailing and sending money, for example:
I have cable and last week it went on the fritz….the cable company sent a repairman who looked and spoke like he just got off the bus from Tijuana. I told him to wait outside and I called the company and told them to send me someone who not only spoke English but was an actual citizen of this country.
They called him back and sent someone else.
These are the things we can do that will make a ‘real’ difference.
Unemployment for black males under 25 is running 52%. Obama’s little bone to the hispanic vote just made any improvement in that figure statistically impossible. So when the murder rate continues to rise on Chicago’s south side this summer I hope anyone with a luke warm IQ will place the blame where it belongs. The African-american community needs jobs and Obama just gave them to illegal aliens. Are they going to celebrate this boondoggle on the south side or are the pastors going to man up and do something?
Amnesty – no matter how this traitorous administration or any other couches it – Amnesty is granting pardon and the illegal aliens are not only being excused for their lawbreaking; they will profit very handsomely by it.
Anyone who thinks this will soley benefit illegal aliens brought here as minor children missed the details packed into past DREAM ACT amnesty efforts.
Not only will illegal alien children – not just kiddies, it’s up to 30 years olds – get a pass to live and work in the U.S. Their parents will also get to stay here even though it WAS their fault that the illegal alien children are here. “Family unity, humanitarian purposes or otherwise in the public interest”
The fraud will be massive and the bureaucracy is in place to rubber stamp them all.
Eventually, they will all receive citizenship. That is the next step.
Amnesty rewards people for breaking the law.Now add welfare and free education. Any wonder why they have invaded ?
The biggest problem is we are not organized.A couple thousand phone calls are drowned out by 20 million illegals and hundreds of thousands at protests.
The biggest gaffe in Obama’s bs story is his own ideology .
He and the UN claim human population is the #1 cause of global warming and environmental damage.He demands reductions in energy use .
The presence of 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens in the United States has consequences. This uncounted, unplanned for population of lawbreakers is affecting the quality of life in the United States. Air pollution, water pollution, energy consumption (gas, coal, wood, and electricity) ,deforestation, desertification, avalanches, wildlife extirpation, soil erosion and agricultural degradation, over-fishing, and ocean exhaustion threaten the sustainability of natural resources.
As natural resources become scarce and prices rise, the economic stability of the country is undermined.
And then comes Obamacare………..
The CDC Division of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) is the agency that has the mission to enforce measures to stop the introduction, transmission, and spread of diseases from outside the United States. Executive Order 13295, April 4, 2003, signed by President George Bush, sets forth that regulations for the apprehension and detention of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.
These include cholera, diphtheria, tuberculosis (TB), plague, leprosy, smallpox, malaria (yellow fever), and viral hemorrhagic fevers. Among these fevers are Lassa, Marburg, Eboli, Crimea-Congo, South American, and others not yet isolated or named. Add to these, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and sexually transmitted diseases (STD), among them HIV/AIDS.
Vaccine preventable diseases include mumps, measles, rubella, polio, influenza type B, and hepatitis B. All of the listed diseases have been introduced and transmitted into the United States.
The National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID) states that infectious diseases are a continuing danger to everyone in the United States.Diseases brought by illegal immigrants into the United States include smallpox,measles ,bubonic plague, polio,malaria, diphtheria, leprosy and cholera. SARS, malaria, TB, and other bacterial pneumonias are now appearing in forms resistant to drug treatment. TB is a significant problem among foreign-born persons in the United States, with foreign-born persons accounting for 63 % of U.S. cases
Peru Hit by Bubonic Plague
(Newser) – The disease that decimated much of Europe in the Middle Ages is alive and well in Peru, where health officials say an outbreak in the north has infected at least 65 people.
BEND, Ore. — Health officials have confirmed that an Oregon man has the plague after he was bitten while trying to take a dead rodent from the mouth of a cat.
The unidentified man, who is in his 50s, remained in critical condition at a Bend hospital. His illness marks the fifth case of plague in Oregon .
The US has averaged about 20 cases a year, mostly in New Mexico.
And just for fun :
Obama is importing 100,000 muslim Somalians refugees a year.
The average IQ of Kenya is 71 IQ , the same as for Ghana, and in Botswana ,Somalia and South Africa the average is 72 IQ points.

obama and Holder are as corrupt as they come. Congress does not have the will to impeach them. The media is still protecting obama, for reasons I cannot fathom.
As for Congress, I don’t know whether they’re complicit, just plain cowardly or terrified that Hillary still has the FBI files she collected on them all and would be wiling to use them since she’s part and parcel of this lawless regime.
As for the enemedia, I believe that it will one day soon be confirmed that they were bought and paid for by George Soreass.
Rep. King where do kick in some funds to help in this cause. How about impeachment proceedings instead of this law suit? What is Congress doing? Just setting on the sidelines looking in while Obama bin Lying destroys the Constitution !!!!
King is doing what he can from his position. I say good for him. In fact everyone who can should be suing this administration for every illegal, criminal move they’ve made. Every Governor, every Senator, every Representative and every citizen. It’s called overwhelming the enemy. This has been a tactic Obama and his administration has used constantly and it’s time to return the favor.
This is Alinski rule #8:
Keep the pressure on with different tactics, and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose. Can anyone say Zimmerman.
Obama’s DOJ has sued Arizona, Florida and Texas or threatened to do so. Some suits have been reciprocated but not enough and not often enough. We need a blitz of suits that will keep him and his criminal DOJ off kilter just like they’ve done us. Proceed quickly with the impeachment of Holder while opening other investigations into all the wrong doing this piece of crap president and his administration cronies have perpetrated on America. This of course includes the EPA.
Republicans for the most part are a bunch of woosy cowards so anyone who steps up to the plate deserves our respect. King and Issa are heroes. Talking about the egregious behavior isn’t bad but what does it accomplish except for lies in return.
Hey Rufus: Not enough republicans out there to get the job done… by far.
King shows up on these hot button issues looking for
attention every now and then.. he really could serve Iowa better.
Feel bad for the people of Iowa
King shows up on these hot button issues looking for
attention every now and then
you mena how you kinda like showing u p on here, too?
Thanks for your input from the Aussie perspective and experiences over there. Thanks, too, for info from No Sleep, Blue Sky (you are an infinite resource of info, it seems).
Great comments all. Unless….Late
The rest of you Republicans better grow some hair on your asses and stand beside Mr. King, if not, I don’t want to hear a damn word about enforcing the laws already on the books, quit pussy footing around trying to be politicly correct and do your damn job!! Remember, November is coming, this means you too.
my hopes here are that Mr. King is serious about this and not just show boating for votes also.
