Republicans warn Obama against using executive amnesty

He shows no signs of backing down.

President Barack Obama returns to America with already enraged Republican critics after he repeatedly defended his legal authority to bypass Congress and issue executive orders on immigration during his Asia trip.

“I will use all the lawful authority that I possess to try to make the system work better,” said Obama. “And that’s going to happen.”

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is warning President Obama against using executive action on immigration reform. He says the president should let the Republican-elected Congress fix the system through legislation.

“He’s poking an eye of the Republican leaders in Congress and he’s making to more difficult for there to be a more permanent solution of this issue,” said Romney.

But a top Democratic leader thinks Obama should have acted faster in addressing immigration.

Former President Bill Clinton says Obama delaying on immigration reform may have partly caused the Democrats to lose the midterm elections.

“There was a collapse of the youth vote,” said Clinton. “The African-American vote held fairly steady and was remarkable given that we had a little bit of a loss of the Hispanic vote perhaps because the president didn’t issue the immigration order. But, it was a tough call for him ‘cause had he done so, then a lot of the others would have lost even more. It was a difficult call.”

White House officials have not confirmed when President Obama will use his executive powers in issuing orders that could spare the deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants.

But they say it will happen soon.

    Remember this speech Obama has admitted he has no legal authority to do what he is now threatening.
    “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just NOT the case. Congress passes the laws.” Barack Obama 2013

    And even back in May of 2011, he understood that he had no legal authority to defer deportations: “Sometimes when I talk to immigration advocates, they wish I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself, but that’s not how a democracy works,” Obama said.

    The House better shut down this tyrannical Obola , THAT IS THE DUTY OF THE HOUSE , and The DUTY OF THE CONGRESS to stop a tyrannical president , SHUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN . January leads to REPUBLICAN POWER and the setting of a new budget The Executive Branch should never have its own budget , and the Governors of states better start taking back the power they have . THE USA is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

    obozo together with his demonicrap party are without shames to topple the equally powerful congress, and the judicial system, all in the name of their filthy ploy to gain the votes of the hispanics. this motive should enraged reasonable american voters, also included are the law abiding citizens of hispanic ethnicities, who all despised illegal aliens.

    the two faced, loverboy, sleazy billy together with his same breed killery did spend campaign time for the demonicrap candidates, who all loss with the grace of GOD. even sleazy billy’s home state of arkansas where he campaigned for the demonicrap candidate loss as well. the people of arkansas are just too sick of their own homeboy. while many ill informed voters believed sleazy billy was the best POTUS ever are clueless to this day, it was the elephant initiatives he signed without resistance after his sex scandal with monica, threatened with possible impeachment. it was the same elephant initiatives sleazy billy resisted on his first term. i guess this loverboy, who was busy philandering on younger women while in the white house, instead of doing his job as POTUS was just born lucky or either luck was on his side on turbulent times. these two clinkers are power hungry especially killery, who many consider will be the first woman POTUS. killery have not done any major accomplishments in any of her political life as a NY senator. the worst is as obozo’s secretary of state, up to this day the unexplained benghazi attack, killing four americans. so, if killery cannot handle such single focus assignment, how much more as the POTUS. these two clinkers are propagandists of all their bullcraps. the saddest part is people jumped on the bandwagon with their bullcraps. so, here we go again sleazy billy on board with obozo’s illegal aliens amnesty. i say, go away with your bullcraps.

    Hey Obama. IT IS NOT YOUR JOB TO MAKE LAWS, Your job is to sign them
    and make sure they are enforced . You are the president of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Not mexico. Not central America. Not the rest of the world. Your job is to do what is right for AMERICA AND AMERICANS, Not to LAWBREAKING ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS.

    Giving legal status to MILLIONS OF LAWBREAKING ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS IS NOT IN YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION. And why you are choosing to willingly break the law by aiding and abetting this INVASION is beyond comprehension and belief.

    So quit being a MORON and do what is best for the AMERICAN PEOPLE AND AMERICA, NOT
    30+MILLION LAWBREAKING ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS.

      @FilAm , I am with you in making the effort to do the right thing . But dont expect Filipinos to join . There are 750 thousand elligal filipinos , they rather want to see America down to her knees than doing the right thing. most are self centered and just looking after their own interest, be it wrong and bad they dont see it and willfully blinded themself .They dont know it yet but at the end, there will be a punishment and consequence for the crime and action they are commiting.

      So, good luck and hopefully law will prevail . I’ve send almost every representative and Senators my opposal and complaint about this issues , time will tell will see.
