In Your Words, Mr. President, “That’s Not How a Democracy Works!” by The Elephant's Child


From Breitbart:

May 10, 2011. President Barack Obama spoke about immigration reform at Chamizal National Memorial Park in El Paso, TX. In that speech he vowed to “keep up the fight” to pass comprehensive reform through Congress.

“Sometimes when I talk to immigration advocates, they wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself, but that’s not how a democracy works,” Obama said. “What we really need to do is to keep up the fight to pass genuine, comprehensive reform. That is the ultimate solution to this problem. That’s what I’m committed to doing.”

That was then, this is now: Monday in the White House rose garden Obama vowed to do everything in his power to bypass Congress on immigration law saying he was starting”a new effort to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress.

From The Daily Caller:

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article.

A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States.

The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States.

Top immigration officials have chosen not to check if the relatives or parents who pick up the children are in the country legally.
