How Obama blatantly disregards the law
http://nypost.com/2014/11/30/how-obama-blatantly-disregards-the-law/

...Obama fancies himself a modern-day Prometheus stealing laws from the oppressive Founding Fathers for the benefit of the oppressed.

“I just took an action to change the law!” he reminded Hispanic activists in Chicago last week, referring to his executive amnesty.

Learning to run around American law was his main purpose in attending Harvard Law School, where he quickly sidled up to Professor Derrick Bell, who bashed the Constitution as a form of “original sin.”

There was no reverence in studying the founding documents and the system they created, no desire to work within America’s legal framework and enforce existing law.

No, Obama didn’t study federal statutes to defend them. He studied them to game them, sabotage them. To abdicate them.

Exhibit A is his illegal mass amnesty for illegals.

According to a new report by the Congressional Research Service, the Hill’s nonpartisan think tank, the president’s authority to grant amnesty is limited to illegal aliens facing emergency situations — such as wars or earthquakes, floods and droughts — that prevent their safe deportation.

The almost 5 million illegals getting a pass from Obama face no such hazards.

By giving them work permits, Obama’s also violating the Immigration and Nationality Act’s intent of protecting domestic labor.

“Congress is unlikely to have defined ‘unauthorized alien’ and prohibited the knowing hiring or employment of such aliens if it contemplated the executive branch granting work authorization” to millions of illegals, wrote CRS legislative attorneys Kate M. Manuel and Michael John Garcia.

What’s more, the Supreme Court in its 1985 “Heckler v. Cheney” decision struck down presidential policies that abdicate statutory duties.

“The Heckler Court expressly recognized the possibility of an executive agency ‘consciously and expressly adopt(ing) a general policy (of not enforcing the law) that is so extreme as to amount to an abdication of its statutory responsibilities,’” they added.

There is little doubt that ordering Homeland Security not to remove half the illegal population is an “extreme” policy. The president has “consciously” decided to abdicate the statutory duties Congress assigned him in the Immigration and Nationality Act, which expressly mandates illegal aliens “shall be detained for removal proceedings.”....

Obama did this because he got enough minions to say "Yes Mr. President"
and he's black. It really is that simple IMHO.
