Obama Says He’s “Not Bluffing” And Will Sign Executive Orders On Immigration

Obama immigration reform


Fresh off of his humiliating defeat by the unanimous Supreme Court decision striking down his recess appointments, President Obama has doubled down on his threat to, "go it alone" on the immigration issue.

Unfortunately, with the power of the President and the help of the sold out media, Barack Obama has completely poisoned the entire immigration debate. With constant calls for reform and chiding Republicans to, "act on immigration" what Obama actually means is, "act in accordance with my wishes and give me exactly what I want or myself, Democrats and MSNBC will blame it all on you."

Instead of simply improving the situation and enforcing current immigration law, Obama seeks to rewrite current legislation so illegals can eventually have amnesty and have a large percentage ultimately end up becoming Democrat voters.

Make no mistake, that is how our scheming President works. Congress acts or doesn't act as in this case because they are doing what they perceive is best based on their ideology. If Congress fails to act or simply votes down Obama's radical agenda, they are acting, they are acting to stop a near tyrant of a president from implementing something that will ultimately be bad for America. Unfortunately, what's bad for America usually seems to be good for Obama.

The Obama administration is "not bluffing" in its intent to take executive action on immigration policy if House Republicans don't act soon, top Democratic leaders warned Thursday.

President Obama has delayed any potential changes to his deportation policy to allow House GOP leaders time to bring legislation to the floor this summer. But if the Republicans don't act in July, the Democrats say, unilateral changes by Obama are inevitable.

"We're at the end of the line," Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. "We're not bluffing by setting a legislative deadline for them to act.

"Their first job is to govern," Menendez added, "and in the absence of governing, then you see executive actions."

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) piled on. Noting that a year has passed since the Senate passed a sweeping immigration reform bill with broad bipartisan support, he urged House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring a similar bill to the floor.

"I don't know how much more time he thinks he needs, but I hope that Speaker Boehner will speak up today," Durbin said. "And if he does not, the president will borrow the power that is needed to solve the problems of immigration."

The remarks come a day after Boehner announced his intent to push legislation allowing the House to sue Obama for what the Republicans say is a habitual inclination to overstep his constitutional authority.

"When there is a failure on the part of the president to faithfully execute the law, the House has the authority to challenge this failure," Boehner wrote Wednesday in a memo to House lawmakers.
