    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)

    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?

    Xenophobia. You're a goof.

    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!

    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.
