President Obama may have just made his most disturbing move yet. Forget the legislative process, he’s just granting immunity to illegal immigrants because he wants to. No Congress, no nothing. A cowardly act clearly designed to pander for votes - horrible.
TheBlaze.com is reporting that the Obama Administration will stop deporting and start granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. Writers note: Ironic that someone whose starting point of legality is “an illegal immigrant” would be capable of leading a “law-abiding life”- interesting logic.
The policy change, announced Friday by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military.
On radio this morning, it’s safe to say that Glenn was less than pleased about this move from the Obama White House. He noted that the president isn’t trying to change the nation’s policies.
“He’s not trying to get this through Congress. He is just, in a breakthrough fashion, seizing power,” Glenn told listeners. “This is exactly what a dictator does, not an American president. We are a constitutional republic. They don't do that. He doesn't have the ability. The Department of Homeland Security doesn't have the authority to do this. Obama is now stopping all deportations for certain classes of illegal aliens. Essentially he is going to put in place the DREAM Act without dealing with the hassles of debating it, voting it, discussing it. He's just doing it.”
The plan coming from this administration would make illegals who are currently under 30 and were brought to the United States before the age of 16 immune to deportation if they have been living in the country for at least 5 continuous years.
“So you have to be a consistent law breaker to get this benefit,” Stu commented.
“This is pandering on a scale this country has never seen before,” Glenn said, while explaining that President Obama has just seized power in dictator-like fashion to mobilize the Hispanic vote without spending a dime on Spanish radio and television.
Glenn has been warning Congress for years to take a stand against the lawlessness of the Obama Administration or they would become irrelevant. Today’s move on immigration appears to be the biggest example of their irrelevancy in the eyes of Barack Obama yet.
“He's just doing it through the Department of Homeland Security,” Glenn said.
“Meanwhile, Janet Napolitano is telling us that the border is now better than it's ever been,” he continued. “That is an out and out outrageous lie. This is one of the most important topics of our lifetime what's happening on the border. It is a war zone. It is worse than a war zone. What's happening in Pakistan on the border, what's happening in Iraq on a border is not as bad as what's happening in our own country on our border.”
In Glenn’s new book COWARDS: What Politicians, Radicals, and The Media Refuse to Say, Glenn exposes just how dangerous the situation on our southern border really is.
“The cowards in congress won't deal with it, the cowards in the media won't deal with it, the cowards in the Oval Office won't deal with it – President Barack Obama is a coward,” Glenn said.
It would be one thing if the president found a way to convince voters that this legislation was the way to go, and they told their congressmen this is what they wanted, and so the House and Senate voted on the legislation. But that’s not what happened. President Obama knows he can’t make the case.
“He knows you’ll never go for it,” Glenn told listeners this morning, “and so he just takes it. It's one thing to say that that's a mark of a courageous man just moving forward. Not when you have all of the power, not when it's a move to give you even more power. It's the act of a coward. Based on every crazy thing like news reports and word of border guards, words of eye witnesses, what's happening on the border is out of control.”
In COWARDS, the border is one of the 13 key topics Glenn focuses on and exposes the lies being told to the public and the cowards telling them. He covers the violence from the drug cartels to how our government is hiding the spillover violence.
“Spillover violence entails deliberate, planned attacks by the cartels on U.S. assets including civilian, military, or law enforcement officials, innocent U.S. citizens, or physical institutions such as government buildings, consulate or businesses. This definition does not include trafficker or trafficking, whether perpetrated in Mexico or the U.S. – coordinated, intentional attacks on government buildings is spillover violence,” Glenn explained. “In other words, if a drug cartel member beheads five rival drug cartel members in the middle of Dallas, DHS doesn't consider that spillover violence.”
“Don’t take my word for it,” Glenn said of the information he was sharing about the border violence. He told listeners all of these details and many more are all found in chapter 6 of COWARDS, ‘Bordering on Insanity: Drugs, Terrorists, and Murder in Our Backyard,’ and backed up with 50 pages of footnotes.
“If you look at the chapter on the drug cartels and what's really happening on our border and how Napolitano and Department of Homeland Security are criminally negligent at best for what is happening and you tie that together with the information on the Muslim Brotherhood and then you tie that together with a chapter on George Soros and then you tie those three things together with what the president just did today and you begin to understand what you're up against. You begin to understand who this president is,” Glenn said. “You begin to understand that many people in the United States government are either asleep at the switch or they're on the wrong side.”
