Stand With Arizona
While few elected officials have denounced Barack Obama’s amnesty-by-decree for illegal aliens – even as of this morning – one in particular stepped up with a forceful response within hours of this outrageous edict. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer issued a statement denouncing the anti-Constitutional move (and had to re-issue it, after Facebook, ahem, “mistakenly” took it down)…
The Obama administration cannot get its amnesty schemes through Congress, so now it has resorted to implementing its plans via executive fiat….This plan amounts to backdoor amnesty for hundreds of thousands – if not millions – of illegal aliens…. With this announcement, the President is encouraging more illegal immigration at the exact moment we need federal focus on border security.
Then Brewer pointed out something the media has taken great pains to ignore this weekend: how just one month ago, Obama rejected such a move in front of the National Council of La Raza (“The Race”). In case you missed it, Obama first said “I swore an oath to uphold the laws on the books”. And he went on from there…
Obama: “I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own… The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. But that’s not how — our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”
Then less than one month later, he went against that Constitution, and did exactly what he said could never be done – bypassing Congress and enacting an amnesty-by-fiat for untold numbers of illegal aliens.
Obama has no regard for the rule of law, and SWA will make sure all Americans know this truth before they cast their ballots in November 2012. As Brewer further said:
Those of us who truly care about the rule of law will remember the President’s actions of today. We need to remind President Obama that we elected a president that serves beneath the law and did not anoint a king that is above the law.
Amen to that, Governor. And Obama’s “oath to uphold the laws on the books”? Just words.
