Dreamers and RINOs: Unconstitutional Hypocrisy

All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.  

Article I Section I United States Constitution 

Early into President Obama’s first term, he famously said this about immigration and amnesty:

“I know some wish that I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that’s not how democracy works.”

By 2012, his true governing philosophy found it’s way into the bright light of democracy: (Wash Examiner)

DACA’s biggest problem was it being the result of Obama’s preference to legislate by executive order rather than through Congress, as the Constitution calls for.

This was the result of our Chief Executive acting on his socialist philosophy. Contrary to the U.S. Constitution, he believes power truly resides within the Executive Branch, and the Congressional Branch is reduced to puppet status. Logically, if the puppet revolts and won’t play ball, then the Chief Executive has the prerogative to go it alone and create law. (LA Times)

Saying he was tired of waiting for Republicans to fix a broken immigration system, President Obama announced in November that he would use his executive authority to protect millions of immigrants from the threat of being deported.

In 2013, Rep. Steve King R-IA expressed Republican opinion and opposition:

“The point here is…the President does not have the authority to waive immigration law, nor does he have the authority to create it out of thin air, and he’s done both with these Morton memos in this respect.”

Even to this day, Rep. Paul Ryan R-IA agrees: (Christian News)

“President Obama did not have the legislative authority to do what he did. You can’t, as an executive, write law out of thin air.”

It is widely speculated the President will revoke Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) this coming Tuesday: (The Hill)

President Trump will announce his decision on whether to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on Tuesday, the White House announced.
The Republican Congress is wildly cheering this Presidential commitment to keeping his campaign promise, right? Not so much. (Washington Examiner)

” To fix the DACA problem properly, the ideal solution is through Congress.”  As Ryan said when asked if Trump should undo DACA himself, “I actually don’t think he should do that. I believe that this is something Congress has to fix.”

Right on cue, here’s Nancy (Breitbart)

“As you know, the President is likely to make an announcement early next week,” Pelosi said in a message to House Speaker Paul Ryan, who announced Friday, that he wants Trump to preserve the DACA, despite its illegality. “That is why I am writing to ask you to meet with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other House Democratic leaders as soon as we return next week to discuss a comprehensive legislative solution for our country’s DREAMers,”

The Dreamer’s Act was unconstitutional in 2013, even according to the Federal Judge (LA Times)

Late Monday, U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen in Texas issued an order siding with those states and blocking the plan for now. “The DHS secretary is not just rewriting the laws,” Hanen wrote in a 123-page opinion. “He is creating them from scratch.”

Try to wrap your head around this. A Democratic President signs a 2012 Executive Order that is so egregious a US District Judge finds it unconstitutional, all the while Republicans condemn it. Fast forward to 2017:  A Republican President, in keeping with his campaign promise, wants to revoke said Executive Order, and Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi stand together in opposition?

Amazingly enough, Paul Ryan and Nancy Pelosi also explain why they want Congress to jump into the middle of this: (Breitbart)

According to Pelosi, the DACA illegals are “patriotic, courageous men and women who are American in every way …[ their repatriation] would be disastrous for communities, our economy, and our nation.” Ryan has also praised the young illegals and has repeatedly endorsed “any willing worker” proposals, which are designed to raise the inflow of foreign workers whenever employers are forced to pay higher wages. (Emphasis added)

Gotta give RINOs credit. They are always loyal to their masters. If it’s not the military complex, it’s the Chamber of Commerce.

Mr. Ryan has just said he wants to keep the flow of illegal immigrants in the US, so that wages for American citizens can continue to be depressed. This is truly worth repeating:

“Raise the influx of foreign workers whenever employers are forced to pay higher wages.”

You gotta wonder how that plays in Wisconsin with the dairy farm workers, in Pennsylvania with steel workers, in Detroit with…you get the picture.

Ryan and the RINOs are to conservative values as CNN is to news. Fake.

They don’t care for us, it is high time we stopped caring for them.
