Illegal Immigration: The Strange Omission from Boehner’s Lawsuit Against Obama

Obama and Boehner

House Republicans have begun to float the idea of a lawsuit against President Obama to try to force the President to actually follow the laws Congress passes.

“The Constitution makes it clear that a president’s job is to faithfully execute the laws. In my view, the president has not faithfully executed the laws,” the Speaker said on Wednesday. “When there are conflicts like this between the legislative branch and the administrative branch, it’s … our responsibility to stand up for this institution.” 

Boehner also issued a memo to House Republicans explaining the reasons and legal theory behind the planned lawsuit. (There’s a link to the memo at the end of this article.)

But there was a strange omission in Boehner’s memo: nowhere is Obama’s lawless failure to enforce our immigration or border security laws mentioned, which is arguably the most egregious example of Obama’s lawlessness. 

We think a general lawsuit against Obama for his lawless behavior has little chance of success in large measure because the Constitution sets forth another remedy against a President and subordinate officials who fail to faithfully execute their constitutional responsibilities: impeachment.

But Boehner and the House Republicans have no stomach for using the tools the Constitution provides, such as refusing to fund a program with which they disagree or impeaching lawless executive branch officials.

As our friend Andrew C. McCarthy, author of Faithless Execution, observed in a recent column for National Review Online:

Speaker Boehner correctly points out that all Americans, regardless of partisan or ideological inclination, have an interest in stopping executive lawlessness because the imperial precedents President Obama is setting will be available for exploitation by every future president. Yet, Boehner is heedless of the precedent he proposes to set: Instead of Obama’s executive monarchy, we’d now be subjects of a judicial oligarchy—all future presidents, no matter how lawful their actions, would be subject to vexatious congressional lawsuits and court directives from the judiciary Obama has been stocking with hundreds of like-minded Leftists for the last six years. Putting aside the fact that this would put politically unaccountable judges in charge of all policy matters in our body politic, does anyone suppose that Democrats just might use Boehner’s lawsuit gambit as the basis for harassing a future Republican president that they lacked the votes to impeach or slash funding from?

McCarthy further observers that “the end of the Boehner memo is priceless.” It contends:

Under our system of government, the Judicial Branch has the power to resolve disputes between the Executive and Legislative Branches. When there is a failure on the part of the president to faithfully execute the law, the House has the authority to challenge this failure in the Judicial Branch by filing suit in Federal Court in situations in which:

There is no one else who can challenge the president’s failure, and harm is being done to the general welfare and trust in faithful execution of our laws;

There is no legislative remedy; and,

There is explicit House authorization for the lawsuit, through a vote authorizing the litigation against the president’s failure.

According to McCarthy’s way of thinking everything asserted there is either untrue or abject nonsense.

We agree with Andrew C. McCarthy: in the end what Boehner proposes is not a strategy to force Obama to enforce the laws Congress passes or to follow the Constitution. It is a feckless political ploy that picks and chooses a few issues to make it look like Boehner and House Republicans are doing something about Obama’s lawlessness, when the real remedy is to impeach Obama, Holder, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson or any of the other federal officials who have been complicit in the execution of Obama’s policy of lawlessly refusing to faithfully execute the laws Congress passes.

Stopping illegal Immigration falls on deaf ears in DC

WE PLEAD--BUT IT FALLS ON DEATH EARS IN WASHINGTON, OVER STOPPING ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION? MAINSTREAM PRESS DOESN’T MAKE ANY DISTINCTION BETWEEN LEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND ILLEGAL ALIENS? THE NEWSPAPERS LIE TO US ALL THE TIME.

How much of you are willing to take, before you stand up and speak your mind? This is your occasion to be a true citizen. Build the pressure behind the National Tea Party and assist us to continue our overwhelming battle to take this President down. He's running our beloved country into the ground, steering us straight into acute socialism. Under the guiding hand of Obama the IRS targeted conservative groups and the Tea Party, the NSA illegally spied on Americans, the Environmental Protection Agency is issuing Rules And Regulation at a accelerated rate, the Justice Department illegally wiretapped the press and Eric Holder committed multiple acts of perjury. At least two dozen scandals have rocked this presidency. When will enough be enough?

No one wants to think about what unconscionable act Obama will do next... but we must be ready. Whatever the cost, Obama must be prevented from carrying out the final phase of his "primary change," which has already caused mammoth damage that will take generations to unravel. The American people must act fast to get out calls across America and rally all grassroots family and friends and co-workers.

We have watched in horror as Obama has lied, cheated and abused his way through the Oval office. It is time to get rid of him. Help us reach Washington with a loud, clear message: This President has disgraced America, staining the office of the President of the United States. He has committed far too many miserable and unforgivable acts. It was a sad joke when he proclaimed, that this would be the most transparent government.

PETITION URGENTLY REQUESTING THAT CONGRESS LAUNCH AN INDEPENDENT AND COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION INTO UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES ON THE PART OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Read more at http://www.teaparty.org/ this is ONLY ONE of many petitions on the Internet to impeach this man ignoring the Rule of Law and the U.S. Constitution.

It is time for him to go and it is our patriotic duty to send that message loud and clear. His death wish for America is growing. We are close to being annihilated as Obama shreds every last ounce of freedom defined by our Constitution. Shockingly, there are still Americans who do not know about the crimes he is perpetrating upon this nation and his somewhat clandestine violations of law. Obama is the worst president in the history of the United States—and the most toxic. He has proven his loyalty to illegal aliens, demonstrated utter disdain for America and complete disrespect for our military. Our foreign policy is in shambles.

In considering the fact, AND IT IS A FACT, that these "alleged' these mostly unaccompanied children have arrived on the US border and literary thrown themselves to the agents. It was as if the scenario had been rehearsed, with their talking point answers, as the Democrat officials are answering questions before a "house committees" on “Fast & Furious” gun running, Benghazi, Veterans Administration and yet another debacle of the IRS of destroyed Emails. Americans from both parties and Independents are not that gullible. But then again maybe I shouldn't be so surprised because the only unease is that many human parasites who voted for Obama and even illegal aliens “who illegally voting for the people in DC “want Something for nothing” And they were unquestionably right collecting free Medicaid, under the diuretic Affordable Care Act, and the benefits that hard working Americans have paid into a retirement pool all their lives.

This government has never attempted to produce a federal budget, just always pressing for more money; not that the Republics have not always got one hand in the state and federal revenue till. It seems forever that long before Obama presidency, which the borders have remained a giant sieve? Personally I don’t think there was any intention to seal that border on the lines of the Israeli barrier. Fly over this demarcation line between the U.S. and Mexico and whether it’s Southern Texas, New Mexico, and California many regions are still exposed to criminal activity the warning signs signify it. It’s certainly not the fact that the Border Patrol is not doing their duty, in keep the riffraff out, but there are miles of unfenced border. If they had originally built the 700 mile fence that former President Bush had inspired to, then we wouldn’t have this present calamity. The money spent in the first instance of 10, 20, 100 million dollars, or even a trillion would be incredulously worth it today. Just in California alone the spending spree for illegal aliens is 23.1 billion dollars.

OBAMA NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED AND ALL OF HIS POLITICAL CRONIES, INCLUDING ERIC HOLDER and all the lies.

Can you even imagine the amount of dollars saved if employers went to prison for hiring illegal labor; millions of Americans working instead of currently seeking employment; money stolen by foreigners using somebody’s Social Security number. It seems so simple to implement a mandated E-very system at all ports of entry—even airline terminals. Better still a Universal digital Social Security card that curtail illegal voting and 100% usable for Identity. Even prior to Obama lifting restrictions on food stamps, federal paid housing and fraudulent child tax credits, foreign nationals had found loopholes to access public benefits. Its cheap labor for the special interests that include the gentleman farmers, trade unions and businesses for Republican Establishment The other side of the coin its blocks of Democratic votes, that could cost the lower or blue collar his job in future years. Both parties make you think they are enforcing the law at the border and internally, but its bull crap. Yet the voting public keeps electing the same old school politicians that haunt the halls of power making big cash rewards on insider trading.

ITS BEEN PROVEN TIME & TIME AGAIN, THAT MOST OF THE NATIONAL PRESS IS BIASED, AS THEY COMPLETELY IGNORE THE MAIN SOURCES OF INFORMATION ABOUT OBAMA AND HIS SOCIALIST CRUSADE, THE BETRAYAL AND SPYING.

All you have to do is don’t vote Democrat; don’t vote Republican; when you go to the ballot box make your decision on who will balance the federal and state budgets, Remove the Affordable Care Act.

If you want change, then elect NEW THINKING Candidates of the National Tea party: removal of illegal aliens; No Amnesty; No Pathway to Citizenship and no drivers licenses; Abolishing the IRS; introduce a fair or consumption tax, reduction in government itself; Returning the Department of Education, Environmental Protection Agency to State control. Building the Keystone pipeline and making America self-sufficient in Energy and not dependent on foreign oil, gas. Reduce to a minimum of Regulations for growing businesses. Stop the incessant rules and regulation that Americans face every day, by agencies to collect more taxes; Make corporate welfare a thing of the past.

Boehner p***ing in the wind

This will be dismissed out of hand by a federal judge for "Failure to state a cause for which relief can be granted". Just more useless window dressing by Boehner to look like he has a shred of relevance.
