While the world continues to fret over the power and cruelty being shown by groups such as Islamic State (ISIS), al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Al Shabaab, Boko Haram, Hamas and other terrorist organizations, President Barack Obama appears more concerned with his illegal immigration policy and its political ramifications, according to a news outlets on Friday.
Visibly angry over the uncooperative U.S. Congress, Obama repeatedly threatened lawmakers -- and a majority of American citizens -- that he'll resort his perceived executive power to make the desired program a reality. One of his possible actions would be to wait until after the November elections to create new immigration regulations by fiat, claim opponents of his alleged lawless, unconstitutional overreach.
Political strategists, such as attorney and consultant Mike Baker, believe that the Obama White House will send up trial balloons in order to gauge public reaction to measures that will shield millions of immigrants from deportation. Whenever questioned about deportations -- or lack thereof -- the talking points being circulated by POTUS' sycophants in the media are that the Obama has deported more illegal aliens than any previous administration and that he has tightened border security. Both points, however, have been proven wrong by members of the U.S. Border Patrol and members of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement directorate.
At a White House news conference on Thursday that was supposed to address his strategy for fighting terrorists in Iraq and Syria, Obama told reporters that his immigration plan needs to be studied further by his administration.
On numerous occasions this year, Obama complained about lawmakers' failing to pass immigration legislation and directed his new Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to come up with his own proposals "reforms" that wouldn't depend on congressional approval. However, more than two months later He still hasn's received Johnson's proposals, claim immigration and border security activist groups.
"White House spokespeople are telling their 'comrades' in America's newsrooms that Obama hopes to dictate a number of broad changes, such as a new program similar to the one he established in 2012 for so-called Dreamers _ those illegally brought to the U.S. as children. It's a strategy known by some as 'death by a thousand cuts,'" said former law enforcement and military officer Leonard Manchion.
