Executive Power CANNOT Be Used to Grant Amnesty to Illegal Aliens

It is ILLEGAL for a president to try to obtain votes using executive power.

To All Members of the Congress:

It is ILLEGAL for a sitting president to try and garner votes utilizing executive power.

?Lawless" ... a word used by Congressman Steven King (R-IA) to describe Barack Obama's decision to ?try to outwit and get around ? the laws that he swore to uphold by dictatorially granting amnesty through the backdoor to millions of illegal aliens.

King specifically stated: "Congress writes the laws and the Executive Branch enforces them. For the president to have his subordinates declare and announce they're not going to enforce the law is de facto amnesty. It's essentially a de facto repealing of immigration laws; it's a lawless decision, and I am very offended by it - and we must take action."

And Congressman King is about to do just that... Take Action! Mr. King has joined others, including Congressmen Allen West (R-FL) and Candice Miller (R-MI), in calling on Congress to initiate Congressional hearings into Obama's latest effort to evade the law and our Constitution. And it is vitally important that We The People add our voices to Mr. King's right here and right now... at this very moment to stop this usurpation of our rights to freedom and liberty.

Mr. Obama has gone too far, again. He has crossed the line, too many times, and NOW is the time for our elected officials in Congress to finally do their Constitutional duty and hold Mr. Obama and his administration accountable for his blatant and inexcusable actions.

It's time for our Republican officials in Congress to finally grow some backbone and send Barack Obama a message that they should have sent him long ago. ?You are NOT above the law, Mr. Obama. And you are NOT the law.? The time to send Obama that message is right now.

I now demand that you stand with Congressmen King, West, Miller and others and initiate immediate Congressional hearings into Obama's authoritarian backdoor amnesty declaration. Explain very clearly that Obama has gone too far too many times. Explain very clearly that Obama has abused his oath of office and that his extremes of this abuse must be exposed and stopped immediately.

How far must Obama and this administration go before our elected officials in Congress come to the realization that the 'Chicago Thugocracy' has seized unimaginable and overreaching control of the People?s government?

Are Obama's actions lawless? ... Unconstitutional? Absolutely!

Hans von Spakovsky with the Heritage Foundation writes: "When President Obama was inaugurated, he swore an oath to 'preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.' Article II, Section 3 directs the President to 'take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.' Unfortunately, in what has become an all too common occurrence in this administration, Obama is once again bending that oath to the breaking point by specifically not taking care that immigration laws passed by Congress are faithfully executed."

John Stahl, the chairman of the Tea Party Immigration Coalition goes even further: "No president should have the ability to circumvent law. In fact, the law says anyone giving aid and comfort to illegal aliens is in serious violation of law. People have been prosecuted under that particular law."

Stahl went so far as to call Obama's actions an "impeachable offense."

One thing, however, is absolutely certain: The President of the United States, through executive ?power?, is in effect, aiding and abetting the most egregious unlawful activity that has occurred in these United States of America. This must STOP and STOP NOW.

As my representative of the U.S. Congress, I am respectfully and seriously urging you to join with Rep. King, et al, and Co-sponsor this Congressional investigation. Place it before EVERY applicable Committee in Congress for thorough and complete investigation.

We The People are at our wit?s end with the underhanded activities that have taken place in this current administration. We EXPECT you to ACT on this and do it NOW!

I have not been able to understand how the president has done as he pleases without action taken. Because of his actions, our nation is unsafe right now. I continuously read about what he does, but there's never any action taken. It's very discouraging.

You are absolutely WRONG! The President is empowered via the Constitution. It's a common assumption that pardons can be used only for criminal offenses, and it's true that they have not been used before for civil immigration violations. However, the Constitution extends the power to "all offenses against the United States," which can be interpreted more broadly than just criminal offenses. You are merciless and cruel to not pardon the Dreamers and their families and allow them to lawfully apply for citizenship.

If you ask me , Obama should have been impeached long ago. for him to not uphold the law ,and prosecute illegals or deport them .is not upholding the oath of his office , on the other hand , there was no prosecution on Hillary Clinton . the department of justice was told to stand down by Obama. Remember words from Obama's own mouth , which the law states that NO ,One is above the law. and Obama's failure to have Hillary prosecuted is dereliction of duty which he swore to uphold all laws. Hillary plainly broke the law , with several felony offenses. If we let her get away with it . all will break the law and expect to get away with it . Hold Obama accountable for these action . for every action there is a reaction taken .

The illegals should be deported. Why should we reward them for coming here illegally.
