There are few things Barack Obama revels in doing more than angering conservatives.
Those conservatives believe that people who want to come live in America must do so through the legal channels for immigration, and not by sneaking into the country illegally. The rule of law must be paramount.
It hasn’t exactly worked out that way under 6 years of Obama, who has made a complete mockery of the law, and Congressional power.
In 2012, Obama signed an order granting instant amnesty for 1.2 million illegals who were “brought here as children” — even though the documentation requirements were so lax that the program has been ripe for fraud. A staggering 99.5% of applicants were approved, many using easily-faked documents like cash receipt from “landlords” that were supposed to prove prior residency — but were in fact produced by document mills in Latino areas of big cities.
We were told that we should not punish these “children” for the illegal acts of their parents.
But then, adding insult to injury, Obama rewarded those very lawbreaking parents — last December expanding that amnesty to 5 million of them — and ordering ICE and DHS not to deport them.
Angry Republican lawmakers have vowed to fight the order. And 24 Republican governors have sued in Federal court to stop him.
So how has Obama responded?
By inviting an illegal to be his guest of honor at the State of the Union speech, of course.
From CNS News:
Ana Zamora, who came to the United States illegally, is among the 22 people selected to sit with First Lady Michelle Obama at tonight’s State of the Union address.
This is an honor bestowed on people who provide a human face for the liberal agenda that President Obama will lay out. Ana is the face of Obama’s executive amnesty, which conservative Republicans call an affront to the U.S. Constitution.
The White House describes Ana as a “letter writer, student, DREAMer.” She was bought here illegally as a child by parents who were themselves illegal aliens, and that’s exactly why she’s being honored by the White House.
Unbelievable. But pure Obama. No class. Zero respect for the rule of law. And yet another betrayal of his oath to uphold the Constitution.
Obama’s “guest of honor,” is being rewarded for violating the law, while all of the immigrants who have come here legally and work hard to make something of themselves are being completely ignored.
And it is also a slap in the face to the millions of legal people who waited years and spent thousands on legal fees to come here legally.
One of those legal immigrants is who should be sitting with Michelle Obama at the SOTU tonight. But has as little respect for them, as he does for the Constitution.
Pro Tip for House Speaker John Boehner: you have a House Jail, and the power to arrest and detain lawbreakers. How about arresting this illegal the moment she walks in the door. That would “send a message” too.
