Texans claim Obama’s change in DHS policy is election-year politics

President Obama’s statement from the Rose Garden regarding the change in DHS policy for undocumented individuals brought here when they were young was a blatant election-year play for the Hispanic vote. Both candidates in the Texas U. S. Senate Republican primary run-off election coming July 31st, Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst, along with Governor Rick Perry opined that the President’s announcement was politically motivated.

“President Obama has repeatedly defied the Constitution and flouted the rule of law. His latest decision to refuse to enforce our immigration laws is cravenly political, lawless, and wrong.” ~ Ted Cruz, 6/15/12

"Instead of participating in election-year gimmicks, President Obama should follow the rule of law and secure our border, something his administration and the federal government have fundamentally failed to do.” ~ Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, 6/15/12

Texas Governor Rick Perry said, "The Obama Administration's election-year tactic to bypass Congress and arbitrarily grant amnesty … is another example of its blatant disregard for our Constitution, our rule of law and our democratic process.”

Newly naturalized Texan, Glenn Beck, was quick to express the view the President “is just, in a breathtaking fashion, seizing power…this is exactly what a dictator does. This is pandering on a scale this country has never seen before. This is one of the most important topics of our lifetime.”

Clearly President Obama is operating outside the bounds of the Constitution and once again side-stepping Congress. What remains to be seen is whether or not Texans can count on Congress to perform their Constitutional duty to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
