by Jeff Davis. Fox News reports: “Ten federal immigration agents have filed suit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claiming recent directives are forcing them to break the law and ignore their duties when it comes to deporting illegal immigrants. The suit was filed Thursday in Texas federal court by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. It challenges recent directives allowing some illegal immigrants — particularly non-felons and those who came to the U.S. as children — to stay and, in some cases, get work permits.”
In other words, arbitrary revocation of the law by the President of the United States without reference to Congress. It’s called tyranny and in a normal country would be an impeachable offense.
Fox News goes on: “The suit, obtained by Fox News, says the agents are being forced to violate federal law. It says the new directive unconstitutionally usurps and encroaches upon the legislative powers of Congress. ICE Director John Morton is also named as a defendant. Kris Kobach, lead attorney on the case, equated the move to give thousands of illegal immigrants a reprieve to the failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.”
“In both instances, the Obama administration ordered federal law enforcement agents to break the law, to ignore the laws that they’re supposed to enforce, and, in the case of the ICE agents, to actually break federal laws that say you’re supposed to deport certain people,’ he said. ‘and in each case, the Obama administration seems to be doing so for political reasons.’”
Unfortunately, there is no way to compel the United States government to obey US law aside from voting the two-party system out of power, which should have been done 80 years ago.
Barry Soetoro has discovered that he can disobey the law and rule by decree without Congress, and he gets away with it because no one has the spine to stand up to him and organize an impeachment. The Democrats are complicit in this tyranny and wouldn’t support an impeachment regardless of how guilty their man is, and the Republicans are too gutless to even try to start an impeachment.
We’ve got the same problem we had three generations ago, a hopelessly corrupt two-party system. Americans need to start voting for Third Party candidates to break this corrupt stalemate, but it looks like that won’t happen until our economy is completely destroyed, which shouldn’t be that long an additional wait.
