Prior to passing sweeping immigration reform, President Obama had a plan. And as he gave 5,000,000 illegals full amnesty, he was carefully following through with that plan.
For most of his presidency he’s been telegraphing what he was going to do, but if you listened in on the countless interviews and speeches, it didn’t seem like it was possible. However, Obama has been intent on becoming the new dictator ever since he came into office.
The unfortunate thing is how he’s lied about it for years. In numerous statements Obama has claimed that there is no “magic wand” he can wave in regards to immigration. In fact, here are 3 videos where the president says it’s simply “not possible” to lay down sweeping immigration change.
And yet now Obama has provided amnesty for millions of illegals, even though it goes against the authority provided to him via the constitution.
As the Washington Post notes:
The president has certainly been consistent on this issue—until he saw that the path through Congress was blocked. It’s clear from the interviews that the president was not being asked about executive orders that would have provided comprehensive immigration reform, but about specific actions that ended deportations of a subset of illegal immigrants—precisely the type of action he will shortly unveil.
Previously he said that was not possible, using evocative language that he is not a “king” or “the emperor.” Apparently he’s changed his mind. The president earns an upside-down Pinocchio for his flip-flop.
Obama knew he was going to do this all along.
He’s been not so quietly testing the waters this whole time in office… seeing just how many executive orders he could pass without being challenged.
And at this juncture of his presidency it looks like he was confident that he could finally get away with it.
He doesn’t care of it’s constitutional or not.
He doesn’t care if Republicans are against the measure.
It’s Obama’s way or the highway when it comes to illegals.
The question that remains is will Obama do anything to secure the border now that’s granted illegals amnesty? Or, will he encourage even more of them to come over so he can fatten up the Democrat voting base?
If you’re against illegal immigration and want the border sealed then you qualify for this special promotion…
