Since liberals only pretend to care about the Constitution when it can be twisted to protect flag-burners, pornographers, or Islamic terrorists, someone should explain to them how our Founding document actually works. When Democrats disregarded sweeping Republican victories in the House and Senate earlier this month to reward millions of foreign criminals (future Democrat voters) at everyone else’s expense, they arbitrarily ignored and violated three separate laws.
1) Existing immigration laws expressly require federal immigration agents to deport illegal immigrants. There are very few exceptions to this, and each one is clearly identified and explained. A law passed in 1996 even goes out of its way to specify that there is zero room for prosecutorial discretion on this.
But as we have seen with the left’s countless other attacks on the Constitution, laws enacted by Congress can apparently now just be openly disregarded and defied at will without explanation or consequence.
2) Since our existing immigration laws are being blatantly violated and reversed without Congress, this constitutes the arbitrary creation of new law. Article I of the Constitution, which assigns the power to make new laws exclusively to Congress, apparently no longer applies. Never mind the fact that the Supreme Court has cited Section 8 as emphatic proof that Congress has complete and total control over our immigration laws.
But we are apparently now to be issued our laws from on high by presidential edict, on a whim.
3) Article II of the Constitution, which requires the President to enforce the laws enacted by Congress, is apparently also now obsolete. Never mind the fact that Section 3 even goes out of its way to emphasize that the President shall only enforce actual laws passed by Congress, and only as they were intended to be applied (the ‘Take Care’ clause). Or that the Supreme Court has confirmed that presidential discretion only applies to the prosecution or deportation of specific individuals or small groups in extreme circumstances such as war or political persecution.
Instead, the enforcement of our laws is apparently now to be based solely on whatever Democrats decide is constitutional at the moment, regardless of the facts. Democrats are on the record repeatedly acknowledging that this executive amnesty would be a blatantly criminal dereliction of duty of duty on their part. But now that Democrats need more power, it is suddenly perfectly legal.
And the same ridiculous, tantrum-throwing leftists who hysterically shriek, convulse, and faint over the Constitution anytime it can be twisted to protect flag-burners, pornographers, or Islamic terrorists suddenly can’t be bothered to grasp why the most treasonous, Constitution-shredding extremist ever to sit in the Oval Office is generating such widespread public outrage. It really isn’t rocket science. Just imagine if this were President Bush.
The bottom line: Conservatives have actual principles (free markets, limited government, following the Constitution, etc.), but liberals stand for nothing more than Democrat power, and will say or do whatever it takes at the moment to undermine and destroy all things white, male, Christian, and American.
