Obama's executive amnesty

Obama Dissolves the Old Republic

Robert Tracinski, The Federalist

Obama is building a system in which everything depends on executive power. What’s Obama’s historical legacy if everything he does can be undone via executive order? Look at the bind he has put his party in.

Dear GOP: Do Your Damned Job

Steve Deace, a nationally-syndicated talk show host and author of the new book, “Rules for Patriots: How Conservatives Can Win Again,” has some sage advice for Republicans. “Forget what your consultants tell you is politically possible. You’re up against an opponent who doesn’t care about possible, let alone legal.”  

R's Won't Block O; They Want Amnesty

Erick Erickson, Red State

The GOP just won a wave election but have chosen to surrender before the fight starts. McConnell’s insistence that the GOP won’t shut down the gov't was all Obama needed to go ahead with amnesty.

Chaos If R's Don't Withhold Funding for O's Exec. Amnesty

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Conservatives say that GOP leaders, including Boehner and McConnell, will be “complicit” in Obama’s exec. amnesty if they don’t pull out all the stops to block him. They warn that chaos is certain if that’s how it goes down, though they’d much rather have GOP leaders fight with them. 

Schlafly: Obama Could Launch Another Civil War

Paul Bremmer, WND

Obama’s exec. amnesty represents a Fort Sumter-type moment, says Phyllis Schlafly. “With Pearl Harbor, we knew what was happening,” she said. But Fort Sumter, where the opening shots of the Civil War were fired, represented the beginning of a ruinous conflict.

O's Amnesty Is VERY Different From Reagan/Bush Actions

Greg Campbell, Tea Party News Network

Ronald Reagan & George H.W. Bush only used their power to expand laws recently passed by Congress, not to impose new laws. What Obama's doing would go far beyond his predecessors’ actions. And they wouldn't be rooted in any recently passed law. 

Bachmann: Exec. Action Allows in 'Illiterate' Voters

Lucy McCalmont, Politico
Rep. Michele Bachmann says exec. actions on immigration will lead to a flood of “illiterate” Dem. voters. “The social cost will be profound on the U.S. taxpayer: millions of unskilled, illiterate, foreign nationals coming into the U.S. who can’t speak the English language."

Poll: Many Latinos Disapprove of O's Exec Amnesty

Katie Pavlich, TownHall

A new NBC poll shows Latinos don't overwhelmingly support Obama's decision to thwart Congress on amnesty through exec. action. Nearly half of Americans disapprove of his action. Latinos are divided, with 43% supporting the action and 37% opposing it. 

Fournier On Exec. Amnesty: Hispanics 'See This As Pandering'

Alex Griswold, Daily Caller

National Journal reporter Ron Fournier said Hispanics can “see through” Obama’s executive amnesty and tell they are “being pandered to” and used politically.

GOP Battle Plan to Fight O’s Amnesty Taking Shape

Noah Rothman, Hot Air

The GOP has both a right and an obligation to resist O’s imperious attempt to expand exec. power. Despite the fact that their path is fraught with political peril, the GOP seems to be settling on a course of action which would blunt Obama’s actions but not sap them of either legitimacy or support.

Conservs. Shoot Down Omnibus Plan That'd Allow Amnesty

Pete Kasperowicz, The Blaze

Conservative R's indicated they wouldn't support Hal Rogers' plan that would have Congress approve funding for the fed. gov't first, and then worry later about whether to pass a separate bill to stop Obama's executive amnesty. 

Is O’s Exec. Overreach More Dangerous Than Amnesty?

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

The GOP not only has a strong political reason to fight Obama on executive abuse, they have a constitutional responsibility, as well.

Obama Plans Public Benefits For Illegals

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

Illegal aliens who get Obama’s likely forthcoming exec. amnesty will have immediate access to welfare and other public benefits, according to a new report from the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR). 

Hal Rogers Is Attempting To Commit Legislative Suicide

Goldwater Conservative, Red State

Rand Paul also laid out a strategy for getting through until the next session begins, arguing for passing 12 individual appropriations bills and agreeing that the power of the purse is the best tool to stop dictatorial amnesty.

Gov't Shutdown? GOP Has a Better Strategy

Byron York, Washington Examiner

If the big shutdown didn't damage GOP prospects just 12 months later, would a tightly limited defunding battle be such a problem?

Shut. It. Down.

Erick Erickson, Red State

Block Obama. Let him show himself again to be the petulant man-child Americans have started recognizing. This time, when he shuts down the gov't, keep it shut till you have your way and then hold public hearings to show how Obama selectively shut things down to hurt the voters intentionally.

Perry: Exec Amnesty Unconstitutional; New Wave Coming

Kristin Tate, Breitbart

"Executive action on illegal immigration is unconstitutional, confrontational and contrary to the will of the American people, who expect the president to work with our elected representatives in Congress to find a solution to this issue."

Romney Basically Wants to Surrender Power of Purse to O

Peter Sullivan, The Hill

"There's got to be more productive ways for us to be able to impress on the president the need to work for a permanent solution, as opposed to a temporary solution. Obama should allow Congress a chance to pass legislation on immigration," Romney said.
