Lt. Governor Issues Statement on President Obama's Actions on Illegal Immigration

News Release:

    Last night the President made one of the most dangerous power plays in American history. Using the immigration issue as his vehicle, he is publicly challenging the very system of checks and balances that was established by our founders to protect America against tyranny. The President has clearly shown that he will pick and choose which laws he will enforce and that if he does not like the laws passed by Congress, he will simply make his own.

    Our Republic is in unchartered territory with this action.

    When asked previously about changing the legal status of millions of people without a vote of Congress he stated: "The problem is that I'm the President of the United States, not the emperor... my job is to execute the laws that are passed."

    Last night, he used power not given to him in the Constitution. In doing so, he revealed to the world that he now sees himself as above the law.

    Unless the Congress stands up and uses every tool at their disposal to block this move, rest assured an emperor has been created.
         - Lt. Governor Dan Forest

You're wrong Gene.

Democrat talking points will not save you on understanding this issue.

I MOST RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE with the Lt. Governor's assessment. I heard the same address and continue to monitor the follow-up of yesterday. I am sure we will hear the debate on the Sunday political shows of all the networks. We shall see what comes our way and I trust all of us will do deep thinking about it.

Can anyone tell me how a President asking for a bill he can sign from Congress is Unconstitutional?

George HW Bush and his son BOTH addressed Immigration --- in the same way President Obama is doing. A comparison on CNN yesterday of the President's speech and that of his predecessor showed an almost 1:1 comparison of content. The Predecessor used Executive Orders at twice the rate being done by the current President --- duly elected by the voters of the USA in 2012 to his last term that can be served.

Right now we have a bitter duel between Conservative Commentators --- un-elected and critical of a Progressive President and his party, in my view.
