Krauthammer Calls Obama’s ICE Memo On Immigration Outright Lawlessness”, ICE Union President Warns Americans To “Brace Themselves For What’s Coming”

Charles Krauthammer took the hard line on Obama’s latest end-run around congress, last night on Special Report, calling Obama’s discretionary ICE memo pushing the rejected DREAM Act for illegal alien students, “outright lawlessness”.

RealClearPolitics has the video:

“This is outright lawlessness on part of the administration. Whatever the politics of this, we do have a constitution and under it the legislator, the Congress, enacts the laws and the executive executes them, it doesn’t make them up,” Charles Krauthammer said on “Special Report.”

“The DREAM Act was rejected by Congress, it is now being enacted by the executive despite the expressed will of the Congress. That is lawless. It may not be an explicit executive order, it is an implicit one.”

On Wednesday, ICE Union president Chris Crane issued this statement:

“Any American concerned about immigration needs to brace themselves for what’s coming. This is just one of many new ICE policies in queue aimed at stopping the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws in the United States.  Unable to pass its immigration agenda through legislation, the Administration is now implementing it through agency policy.”

Crane continued: “ICE and the Administration have excluded our union and our agents from the entire process of developing policies, it was all kept secret from us, we found out from the newspapers.  ICE worked hand-in-hand with immigrants rights groups, but excluded its own officers.”

Also ignored by the press, was last year’s no confidence vote ICE agents gave Obama appointee, ICE director John Morton.

The National ICE Council represents about 7,000 agents and support staff.

  1. If this was any other President, this would be considered treason. He is opening our borders and allowing an invasion.

  4. This President is full of “Firsts”. Well this will be the first time in U.S. history where the citizens feel the enemy is the President himself, and where the citizens fight back. This S.O.B. is pushing Americans beyond the point of no return. I really believe he thinks we will lay down and take all this crap without a peep.

  5. “He [the president] shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” [Constitution of the United States, Article 2, Section 3]

    I didn’t even have to look that up. What’s Obama’s problem? Is he itching to be impeached and tried?

  6. The ACLU American Civil liberties Union or better known as the American Communist lawyers Union, as it was founded by a Communist, is coming out its hole again. Perhaps someday it will be recognized as Anti-American and the likes of J. Edgar Hoovers phantasm, will dig them out of their pits and throw these illicit so-called Lawyers to the wolves. They redoubtably get their money bounty to torture States and cities from lobbyists, as well as silent handouts from the US Government, like a giant praying mantis, always looking for blood. First this entity joined up with the Liberal-democratic leaders to harass Arizona, but not satisfied with this purgatory, they are now threatening Georgia, Alabama. The ACLU either intentionally are indifferent to the poverty in this country, that has built up even more from the decades of at least a trillion dollars, stolen from Americans to support the illegal immigrant invaders.

    Every day there is even more bloodshed by drunken foreign drivers causing mayhem on the highways? The crime statistics are not going down, from these people who have scorned the law and now we have the good old ACLU, the religious activists led by the Vatican, the US Chamber of Commerce, as a driving force, that American sovereignty or the US Constitution has no meaning anymore. THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION LED BY THE LEFTIST HOLDER, NAPOLITANO IS ALL OPEN BORDER LEADERS. We have already seen the impact of Sanctuary States and cities, making American taxpayers to dig even deeper into their pockets, to subsidize this occupation by nationals. The Crime, the welfare and public services for illegal aliens are beginning to bleed from the edges as more States find the fiscal deficits rising. While draining state treasuries, the further crippling of our economy is furtively completed, by the rising exportation of 40 billion dollars goes to foreign countries, from illegal alien wage packets. Indirectly its—YOUR—money they are spending.

    This is revenue not being spent in the United States. California the Liberal fortress is struggling, along with Nevada and New York with rogue governors who are going to soak the taxpayers even more, to pacify the 20 million or more foreign nationals. But there is a limit to compassion, as many US citizens and legal households are folding under this continuous bombardment of Federal, State saying give me more dollars. A new survey conducted by Gallup finds that a plurality of Americans favors reducing overall immigration levels. The poll released earlier today reveals that 43% of Americans thing overall immigration should be reduced while only 18% think overall immigration levels should be raised. Thirty-five percent of Americans feel that immigration levels should remain the same. The TEA PARTY is rising to “The Peoples” call, to halt this monetary torment for good.

    The midterm election proved that the people are mad and sick of supporting illegal aliens who are flocking to this nation. The TEA PARTY is rising at a phenomenal rate, with thousands signing up at the national and local websites. We have seen the inability for the Obama’s mob, to slide through executive orders not to deport certain groups of people. We keep sending troops abroad, but the protection of America’s people; specifically in Border States that remain unprotected. The TEA PARTY will exceed any previous administration in stopping the self-destruction of America’s society. The 1986 Simpson/ Mazzoli will be enforced and will impose the mandated E-Verify, Secure Communities to the letter of the law. Much harsher sanctions against incorrigible business that hire cheap labor will be severely punished the border with military interdiction along with the border agents.

    All presidential hopefuls who fall below a B+ plus rating by NumbersUSA, will be ignored and fall out of favor along with the elected carrion that run the cities and communities nationwide. Already D. Huntsman has been designated by NumbersUSA as a bad contender. The Tea Party is an open book of all races, which came to this country through the front gates. ARE AMERICANS PREPARED TO HAVE THEIR SLIPPING WAGES, BEING COMMANDEERED FOR YEARS TO COME, PAYING FOR PEOPLE WHO BROKE OUR IMMIGRATION LAWS? OF COURSE NOBODY BREATHES A WORD OF THE FARMERS AND AGRICULTURE, WHEN THEY SEND THEIR ILLEGAL CHARGES TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR FREE CARE, OR THE UNINHIBITED AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT TAXPAYERS ARE FORCED TO PAY FOR THE CHILDREN’S EDUCATION

    The 1986 Amnesty turned into an absolute travesty of our laws, with paramount fraud and millions not processed correctly. On Wednesday U.S. Sens. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., Harry Reid, D-Nev., Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., John Kerry, D-Mass., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., reintroduced a comprehensive immigration reform bill. The bill supposedly includes measures to strengthen border security, enhance work site enforcement of immigration laws, and requirements that the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants ( Most people agree its well over 20 million) present in the U.S. register with the government, pay taxes, learn English, pay a fine, pass a background check, and wait in line for permanent residence.

    As far as I’m concerned, this will end up another big payout slapped on taxpayers. Heritage Foundation has already stated that taxpayers are looking at another mind boggling bill of $2.6 Trillion dollars. If you don’t believe it, then go and view the statistics in black and white at the heritage website. If you feel that another 20 million plus newcomers is alright on the US treasury accounting sheet, then will have even higher taxes slipping from our grasp. All its going to accomplish is millions more foreigners encouraged by our open border politicians, to keep funneling in a growing overpopulated America millions more annually, that the politicians fail to tell us about?

  7. How can Krauthammer possibly think Obhammud’s actions are “lawlessness?” He is the duly elected President of the United States and as such, in the mode of the old-time sheriffs in the burgeoning early west, is in fact the law as he sees it.

    I figure the Congress has about four more months to rein him in before he has set enough precedent the courts will support him in his coup.

  9. The Dream Act has been on the books for years, yet no one had a problem then. How is the President’s Memo “Lawlessness” if anyone knows the law, it is the President. What many fail to remember is that he was a Law Professor, herego, he taught the law; therefore he studied the law inside and out.

    If this was any other President, his memo wouldn’t be a “lawlessness” it would be seen as him doing what is best for the country and those who must live here.

  10. No, it has been introduced as a bill, in various incarnations, since 2001.

    It has never been passed by both houses of Congress, and signed by a President, so no, it hasn’t “been on the books for years”.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DREAM_Act

    And when you try to make law by executive fiat what you cannot get passed by proper legislative means, it is by definition, lawless. The President does not make the law, Congress does.

    You might go back and study Articles I and II of the Constitution again.

    And if you ever attended law school, you would know that being a professor doesn’t mean that you know the law “inside and out”. You might be incredibly knowledgable on a few types of law, but even then, you aren’t likely to know it inside and out. The “professor” in question lectured on Constitutional law, a subject that he might know, but does not have a typical understanding of, since he is on record lamenting the fact that the dusty old document is a charter of negative liberties, since it limits what government can do to/for you.

    If it were any other President trying to change the law through executive fiat, they’d be impeached by a Congress that is otherwise jealous of its powers, and guards them closely, but since he’s the first affirmative action President, and mention of this usurpation in mixed company will instead lead to the denounciation of the speaker as “RAAACCCCIIIIISSSSTTTT!!!”, which used to be a handy way to shut people up when they had the nerve to publically utter inconvenient truths.
