Rep Steve King, Iowa Republican, and Vice Chairman of the House Immigration Subcommittee, said he plans to sue the Obama Administration over its decision to halt deportations of young illegal immigrants. On Friday’s Mike Huckabee's radio show he discussed the matter. Transcript below: (Listen to audio here) (http://media.washtimes.com/media/audio/2012/06/15/king-to-sue31.mp3)

REP. STEVE KING: I will tell you that....I'm not without experience on this I'm prepared to bring a suit and seek court order to stop implementation of this policy. I have done it once in the past successfully when then Governor Tom Vilsack thought he could legislate by executive order and the case of King versus Vilsack is in the books and that individual is by the way is now the Secretary of Agriculture. I wonder if he's not counseling the president on his legal proceedings.

HUCKABEE: I want to clarify. You plan to sue this administration for implementing something that you believe should have required legislative process and approval?
Congressman

KING: That is correct.

Congressman King's office released a statement earlier regarding the Department of Homeland Security's move to enable young individuals who were brought into the country by illegal immigrant relatives when the young individuals were infants or toddlers. According to CNS News:

DHS said it will continue to focus its enforcement resources on removing people who pose a national security or public safety risk, including immigrants convicted of crimes, violent criminals, felons, and repeat immigration law offenders. "Today’s action further enhances the Department’s ability to focus on these priority removals," it said. (Napolitano was discussing the immunity program on a conference call with reporters that began at 10:30 a.m.)

Bypassing Congress, the new policy sets the following criteria for young people who came here illegally with their parents:

-- Must be under age 30 and have come to the U.S. under the age of 16;-- Must have continuously lived here for at least five years-- Must be in school, or have graduated from high school, have a general education development certificate, or be honorably discharged veterans of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;

-- Must not have felony convictions or "a significant misdemeanor offense," multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety;

"Only those individuals who can prove through verifiable documentation that they meet these criteria will be eligible for deferred action," the news release said.

The new guidelines take effect immediately, and the Obama administration expects to begin taking applications within 60 days.

Rep. King, in a statement, responded: "Americans should be outraged that President Obama is planning to usurp the Constitutional authority of the United States Congress and grant amnesty by edict to 1 million illegal aliens," said King. "There is no ambiguity in Congress about whether the DREAM Act's amnesty program should be the law of the land. It has been rejected by Congress, and yet President Obama has decided that he will move forward with it anyway. President Obama, an ex constitutional law professor, whose favorite word is audacity, is prepared to violate the principles of Constitutional Law that he taught.

"The American people have rejected amnesty because it will erode the Rule of Law. In much the same way, I believe the American people will reject President Obama for his repeated efforts to violate the Constitutional separation of powers."
Booyah!

Remember the brouhaha when congress tried amnesty discussions? We the people called their offices until they backed down. Wonder why Obama thinks this will help him?

He sees these people as potential Democrat voters.

I hope Rep King follows through and does file suit. Keep the pressure on them. Keep them on the defensive. It's a new experience and they aren't used to it.

Talk it up every chance they get. Keep pressuring and eventually, someday ... maybe ... even the MSM might air something about it. Every move obama's campaign has made so far has been a flop. This could be a big one all across the board. Contraception and queer marriage was a stumble, but people all over are tuned into illegal aliens and have been for years. No matter what kind of face they try to put on it, when Jose is doing a job for $15 - $18 an hour and you have better skills but can't get work in the same field, you'll remember.

Wait. You mentioned Bush not enforcing laws in another thread. Immigration law isn't something you want enforced?

I don't know about anyone else, but I always thought Lucy Lawless was fairly hot in that show. Certainly nothing to the phobic about.

This illegal directive from the President is the closest thing to an amnesty I've ever seen. Think about this: according to Obama's new rules, an illegal could be eligible to remain in his country if he came into the country at age 15, went to high school, and stayed here a total of five years, which means that any illegal alien between the ages of 20 and 30 who went to high school here from the age of 15 is now allowed to stay in this country. Outrageous!

Outrageous!

And the number is far, far more than the 800K he quoted. I'd estimate at least a couple of million would be eligible. And, again, how do they prove they've been here the five years?

Ideally, work it like a sting operation. Open offices around the country. As they come in to get their free work tickets arrest and deport them. I'm sorry they were put in the position they're in, but the law is the law. When govt starts cherry picking which laws to enforce, then the entire structure of law under which we live is tarnished.

I suggest O Bomb-a send a personally signed note of regret to every immigrant applying for immigration and resident alien status, that they need to re-apply because he allowed an ILLEGAL border hopper to remain. That should satisfy those who have waded the mountains of bureaucracy and years of waiting to come here legally. I mean, with the stroke of his pen he S*** on the Constitution, the Congress, EVERY American, and the law abiding immigrants applying for legal alien status. Surely a stroke of that same magic yet disgusting pen would be suitable as an instrument of apology.:rolleyes:

W.'s HLS policy insured this 'suit' is dead in the water.

POTUS is using powers invented and enacted into law under Bush.

All King's saber rattling will accomplish is painting the GOP as anti-immagrant xenophobes.


Seriously, independents and moderates are not going to vote for a party that supports this asshole:

Aw, I get it, it's Dub's fault. Check. Dub is the one who started OBlamer down the path of Dictatorship. Of course that ignores OBlamer's post election (28 September, 2011) statement that he couldn't do what he just did. :rolleyes: Sure makes sense to,,,, to,,,, uh, libertards like you.

I see you learned well from your master, OBlamer the Virtuous; affix all evil to to any boogieman to avoid responsibility. He has taught you well Drone.

Because this administration will do anything to kiss the backside of illegals in trade for votes..no matter how many laws they break.

What power is that genius? Specifics.

Riiiight...because ensuring the Constitution isn't bypassed by someone who uses it to wipe his ass is somehow "xenophobic sabre rattling".:rolleyes:

What about the people that immigrated here the LEGAL way that oppose this crap? What about a simple matter of enforcing the laws of this country?

This economy sucks thanks to Obama as it is...now he's going to add another almost 1 million people to the ranks of those looking for a job? And you think somehow that's ok? FFS you're dumber than he is.

And yet they are lining up to vote against Obama in droves.

The legal immigrants spend a couple of thousand dollars and sometimes have to wait years before they're granted entry. And, they are welcomed here, for doing it the right way. They have a right to be angry at spending the money and waiting.

Illegal aliens (mojados and border jumpers) come in and suck a hundred billion a year from the system, and are given work permits.

The legal immigrant pays with money and time; the illegal takes and returns little.

The actual cost of obama's illegal action will likely be closer to 2 million granted temporary amnesty.

Definition of XENOPHOBIA

: fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign


The troll in this thread has that which he accuses the rest of us as having.

He's got fear and hatred of reality and Republicans.
