Obama’s policies on immigration are being challenged
Over the course of the last year, President Obama through executive actions had proposed various programs in efforts to aid and protect the immigrant population here in the United States from deportation. But because several states opposed and challenged this issue, the propositions have been on hold and are now being considered in the Supreme Court.
While the Republicans are arguing that President Obama’s decisions were deemed an executive overreach, the Democrats are saying that they were well in his executive authority.
Opposers questioned of the programs violated the Take Care Clause under Article II of the Constitution, which directs the president to take care that the laws are faithfully executed. In addition they argued that Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) would impose huge burdens, with additional costs for healthcare, law enforcement and education.
However the administration’s strongest argument is that the President has the prosecutorial discretion under immigration law to halt deportations and offer permanent legal residence to parents of U.S. citizens and some high-achieving illegal immigrants brought to the country before age 16. This does not necessarily mean that it explicitly grants immigrants work permits.
Here's what the republicans are clueless about:
THE IMMIGRANTS HERE ALREADY HAVE ALL THESE RIGHTS !
As Obama said, " they already have amnesty because they are not paying taxes !"
Do the republicans really believe that by stopping Obama's benefits, they are going to force the illegal immigrants to leave? No one is going anywhere. You can throw them under the basement, keep them in the dark corners of our cities, refuse them driver's licenses, but they are not going anywhere. They are just taking their bikes everywhere.
Why not have them included in our society with penalties, in the thousands of dollars, which would go towards protecting our borders from now on ?
It's a no brainer. Republicans are being delusional.
