King Obama's love is here to stay.
Shortly before leaving for Martha's Versailles, King Barack 0.5 took care of a little transforming-America business that his ethnic colonizer troops had been nagging him about.
You will recall that he had a spot of bother trying to get the DREAM Act (don't you love those cynical acronyms?) passed. That was to turn the children of illegals into citizens once they completed two years of college, as though the United States needs a million more young people with half a degree.
Hey, no problem, amigos. Congress won't pass the bill? He doesn't have to sign no stinkin' bill. He'll just DREAM Act America by executive order.
The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would launch a case-by-case review of illegal immigrants slated for deportation, in a move that could grant a reprieve to so-called DREAM Act beneficiaries and thousands of others.
The DREAM Act is a proposal in Congress to give illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children a chance at legal status if they complete two years of college or military service. Though the bill has not passed, supporters and critics alike suggested Thursday's announcement could serve to unilaterally carry out its provisions.
King for a Day Obama has now decided illegals are to be deported by "priority." Translation: Only when there's no way around it, like when a border jumper kills people.
From the Washington Times:
Bowing to pressure from immigrant rights activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that it will halt deportation proceedings on a case-by-case basis against illegal immigrants who meet certain criteria, such as attending school, having family in the military or having primary responsible for other family members’ care. ...
The move won immediate praise from Hispanic activists and Democrats who had strenuously argued with the administration that it did have authority to take these actions, and said as long as Congress is deadlocked on the issue, it was up to Mr. Obama to act.
L’état, c’est lui.
We have become a sad parody of a republic.
