The president’s announcement imposing “Obamnesty” through executive order is yet another example of how out of touch he is with the U.S. Constitution, his responsibility to defend our national sovereignty, the rule of law, and, especially, the American people.
His irrational claim that these foreign invaders — who violate our laws daily in an attempt to steal the American dream — are a positive influence rather than a negative influence is a blatant demonstration of just how much he is willing to abuse his executive authority to decriminalize our nation’s immigration laws.
The undeniable fact remains that each illegal alien’s very first step across America’s border is a violation of federal law.
Left unchallenged, Obamnesty will result in hardworking American citizens paying more taxes to reward these foreign invaders, as they are forced to compete with more illegal aliens for already limited employment opportunities.
America’s immigration laws must protect the lives, liberty and property of American citizens — not foreign invaders. Since the federal government remains AWOL in its constitutional duty to defend the states against foreign invasion, state lawmakers nationwide have no choice but to take all necessary actions to combat Obamnesty.
