Source: Administration Weighs Bypassing Congress to Let Illegal Immigrants Stay±+Politics%29


The Obama administration has been holding behind-the-scenes talks to determine whether the Department of Homeland Security can unilaterally grant legal status on a mass basis to illegal immigrants, a former Bush administration official who spoke with at least three people involved in those talks told

The issue was raised publicly by eight Republican senators who wrote to the White House on Monday to complain that they had heard the administration was readying a “Plan B” in case a comprehensive immigration reform bill cannot win enough support to clear Congress.

The White House would not confirm or deny the claim. But the former Bush official said the discussions are real.

“The administration at the very minimum is studying legal ways to legalize people without having to go through any congressional debate about it,” the source said, calling the senators’ claim credible. “Whether somebody pulls the trigger on that, that’s another issue.” ……

"Fundamentally Transforming" our Country, one day at a time…

Let’s keep praying and take an active interest in our government and politics. Never thought we’d ever face something like this administration.

Well, get ready for it. If they can pass the healthcare bill the way they did, they can make anything happen they want. The usual rules no longer apply in government.

How’s that Hopey, Changey thing workin’ for you?

Never Believed it. Wasn’t for Obama at all. Right now this suit agains AZ is what concerns me. AZ has the right to protect its borders especially when the Federal Government hasn’t moved to do its job which it is mandated to do…protect the borders. What is gained by Obama by this suit?

Everything he has done works to cripple the economy.

Here is the lie they are foisting:

Another lie – HS is denying an interest in passing a blanket amnesty:

Note that presidential **abuse of power **will be used to grant this and both parties in Congress will allow it!

Both Parties might bend to this for the vote. I will tell you who WON’T BEND…The American People…He throws this in the face of Americans WITHOUT conditions WITHOUT securing the border and I guarantee you ALL H- - - will break loose.

And BTW, I am becoming more convinced by the day that the Administration’s whole objective is to cripple the economy.

I wish I could believe that. But too many of our fellow citizens fell for the snake oil that was being sold and elected this man. You reap what you sow.

True Mary, but I see a definite turn around in adoration of this guy…how much of a turn around we will soon find out…and how angry people really are, will be evident soon enough, but there is DEFINITELY buyers remorse nation wide…except of course for the diehard believers who would be happy to walk off the cliff to follow him. How many are those? We will see. And maybe a key element here is the number of people that are actually paying any attention to what he’s doing.

The scary part is Obama has instituted things that cannot be changed (health care)even if (and I pray to God there is) a change in Congress this Nov. He seems perfectly serene to get his socialist/communist agenda rammed through even if he loses in 2012 (and I pray to God he does).

Jindal in LA has asked the Feds to get out of the way so he can get things done. And in AZ we have a situation where it is being sued by the Feds for its proposed legislation. Where is this President? He seems determined to cause more chaos.

Europe has told the US it is following the wrong path as far as continued spending because it didn’t and isn’t working for them. (See Greece, Ireland, Portugal). And Obama continues on.

True enough, and scary enough thank you!:eek: I cannot remember exactly who it was on one of the talk shows quite some time ago, however, that said ANYTHING can be turned around. Whether it really can be ??? Given enough true minded legislators in Congress (with actual AMERICAN VALUES) and an actual LEADER in the Oval Office (that adheres to the Constitution), and I do believe things can change. We just have to pray our way through Obama’s agenda to bring this country to its knees, and pray hard that he doesn’t succeed.:gopray2: We are very close to the edge of the cliff.

Well, we certainly didn’t bend last time, but I think that the legislative groundwork that was signed into law by Bush will serve this administration well. Some who analyzed the NDAA and the MCA say that those bills which became law in Oct '06, will fairly block any opposition the American people might have and anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear should know well that force (God forbid even martial law) can easily be declared to maintain civil order. Everything (human at least) is against We, the People and the Constitution. When they sign unlawful treaties like Northcom which allows Canadian soldiers on our soil in case of civil unrest, when we can clearly see the judiciary and the military are compromised, when we see the state of corruption all around us, when we have no one but a handful to fight for us, WHAT realistically can we do?

I agree with you that there is a deliberate agenda to destroy the economy and it started in earnest before Obama. I also completely believe that CPS (Cloward-Piven Strategy) is being implemented. They mean to take down our sovereignty and this immigration business is one of the tools they are using to accomplish it.

btw, did I heard correctly that the Disclose Act just passed the House which will further restrict freedom of speech and could directly affect any grassroots movement? I’ve been too disheartened to do any research. Anybody know?

And once the Obama Administration grants mass amnesty, what is to stop Mexican citizens by the thousands, if not more, rushing across the border in hopes that the Administration will do it again, and again, and again?

What about the legal immigrants here with work visas and green cards? Will they get this amnesty too? If not, isn’t that rather prejudicial?

Correct…I heard that too, but like you, haven’t the guts to check it out.:frowning:
