(by Michael Connelly, Constitutional Attorney) -- It is just a matter of days before Barack Hussein Obama uses what he claims are his “executive powers” to grant amnesty to millions of people who have violated the laws of the United States and entered this country illegally. Even for a President of the United States who almost daily violates the Constitution and his oath of office to “preserve, protect, and defend” that same Constitution, this action will be the most blatant yet.
In fact, the President has no authority at all over the immigration laws in this country. In Article 1, Section 8 0f the Constitution it states that the Congress shall have the power to “establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization….” That simply means that the Congress will decide how people from other countries can become U.S. citizens and of course that includes how they can legally enter the country in the first place. This has been confirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court.
On the other hand, Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution says that the President “….shall take care that the Laws be faithfully executed….” The key word is shall because that means that no President has the right or the power to refuse to enforce the laws, amend the laws, or make laws on his own. Yet, Obama is about to issue an executive order that does all of those things.
The consequences will be horrendous for the American people. Billions of taxpayer dollars will be spent to provide free housing, food, medical care, and education to not only to the illegal aliens granted amnesty, but also for the tens of thousands more who will be coming into the country because they will know that will be not be hindered or deported. The infrastructures of American cities and towns will be overwhelmed and American citizens will see scarce jobs going to non-citizens.
None of this concerns Obama. He knows the American people overwhelmingly oppose this action and that is part of the reason they voted against Democrats in the recent election. Unfortunately, I believe that is one of the primary reasons he is going forward with this illegal and unconstitutional action. We are dealing with a narcissistic, egotistical, elitist who is furious over the fact that Americans are finally waking up to what he is doing to our country.
Therefore, he is intent on punishing us for failing to blindly follow his vision of destroying our Constitution and turning us from being a Constitutional Republic to a socialist “paradise” where Obama and his fellow elitists will strip us of our freedoms and control our actions and even our thoughts. Amnesty will be the first of many such punishments Obama plans to inflict on us. He has already ordered the FCC to start regulating the internet to control free speech, despite the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the agency has no authority over the internet. He is also having the EPA issue thousands of new regulations that will cripple American businesses, cost thousands of jobs, and severely damage our economy. That is just the beginning.
I have prepared and sent to Congress formal Articles of Impeachment of Obama which I have also posted on RedFlag News. We have confirmed that members of Congress have referred these articles to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration. The granting of blanket amnesty by Obama should be the final nail in the coffin of impeachment. If the new Congress does not act, Obama will continue his path of destruction unabated, and we will lose our country.
