Shortly after President Obama's first inaugural as president, a commemorative plate with his likeness was released with a sales pitch that extolled his "confident smile and kind eyes."
We now know that Obama's smiling countenance hid an agenda that mocked the very laws he has twice sworn to uphold and a continued abandonment of unemployed Americans whose own search for a better life has been swept aside by the Democratic Party and its spineless Republican allies.
Obama knows a voter goldmine when he sees one, and the nation's 20 million citizens who can't find full-time work will not be allowed to block his entrance to it.
The rule of law is applicable only when it meshes with Obama's overall strategy for "transforming America," and nowhere is that strategy more apparent than in his slow but deliberate dismantling of our immigration laws created primarily to enhance the security of the American people and protect their jobs.
Obama's first major effort to kick the legs out from under those charged with enforcing our immigration laws - or at least the one that received the most news coverage - came in June 2011 with the creation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order that granted "temporary" amnesty to nearly 2 million children (who can be as hold as 30) brought here illegally by their parents. The last we heard DACA would be extended. Surprise!
To better understand Obama's efforts to twist the rule of law to his liking, we recommend reading the following blog written by Van Esser, NumbersUSA's Chief of Membership Services. It's a great summary of what the man who promised "hope and change" really thinks of the nation he pretends to "lead."
But it doesn't end there. And it's much worse than what we've been led to believe.
A few days ago, a three-page report from Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a man who takes seriously his oath of office, revealed that enforcement of our immigration laws has come to a virtual end thanks to a president who lies through his teeth when he tells Latino activists that he is prohibited by law from ending deportations. You can read more about it here, including Sessions' original document.
Bottom line? Ninety-eight (98) percent of this country's illegal aliens are immune from deportation. Take it to the bank, because if you can't believe the community organizer from Chicago's South Side who promised a more "transparent" government, who can you believe?
