House Leaders Postpone Border Supplemental, Delay Recess, Blame Obama (Updated) (Video)

Updated 4:52 p.m. | House GOP leaders ditched their plans to vote on a border supplemental Thursday after failing to secure the votes to pass it — but plan to try again Friday before jetting out of town for the August recess.

“We will stay until we vote,” Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., told reporters after an emergency meeting held at 3 p.m. Another GOP conference meeting was called for 9 a.m Friday, a GOP leadership aide said.

Asked if talks would continue Thursday night, Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters “Oh, yeah.”

Earlier, chaos reigned in the House as GOP leaders’ carefully crafted gambit to win conservative votes fell apart.

“We don’t think we have the votes,” said Rep. Kay Granger, R-Texas, one of the architects of the bill. But she said the whip count was “very close” with about 214 supporters, including Democrats.

“There are people who just don’t want to do anything,” she said. “They don’t want to spend the money.”

While GOP leaders initially indicated they would not vote on the border supplemental, a number of lawmakers pushed them to reconsider.

“I’m going to talk to the whip and the leaders to try and talk them into doing something else,” said Rep. John Carter, R-Texas on his way to the whip’s office.

Carter said he’s been telling his GOP colleagues, “60 percent of something is better than 100 percent of nothing.”

The $659 million bill intended to deal with the crisis of child migrants coming across the border would have been followed by a vote on separate legislation prohibiting President Barack Obama from granting deportation relief and work permits to any more illegal immigrants.

GOP leaders, led by Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio, issued a joint statement pinning the blame for pulling the bill on Obama.

“This situation shows the intense concern within our conference – and among the American people – about the need to ensure the security of our borders and the president’s refusal to faithfully execute our laws. There are numerous steps the president can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries. For the past month, the House has been engaged in intensive efforts to pass legislation that would compel the president to do his job and ensure it can be done as quickly and compassionately as possible. Through an inclusive process, a border bill was built by listening to members and the American people that has the support not just of a majority of the majority in the House, but most of the House Republican Conference. We will continue to work on solutions to the border crisis and other challenges facing our country.”

Some conservatives however weren’t happy with the supplemental language itself, while others wanted a prohibition on deportation relief to be attached to the supplemental so that it couldn’t just be discarded by the Senate. And still others didn’t want to spend money. Democrats, led by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., nearly all opposed the bill over changes made to expedite deportations of child migrants by altering a 2008 trafficking law.

Pelosi called the bill “unjust and inhumane.”

Katherine Tully-McManus, Matt Fuller and Niels Lesniewski contributed to this report.

    Can we get some accountability here because it will soon be Nov. Who said no??

    • http://www.clickandconnectclubs.com/ ClicknConnect Clubs

      Yes, accountability: obamination – in a 2010 speech when he called to arms latinos to come to America and help him to FIGHT HIS “ENEMIES”

      Yes! That is squarely where the “ACCOUNTABILITY” lies! Directly at HIS feet!

      • Raylusk

        Is this all you conservatives can do is lie? Pathetic.

          So, do you want the Red pill or the Blue pill? Well, DO YOU?

  • DrGeneNelson

    I was listening to the C-SPAN coverage of the House deliberations. After more than four hours of debate and exhaustion of time by both sides, it was announced that pursuant to a House Rule, consideration of H.R. 5230 was suspended. Thus, no vote occurred. I’m pleased that there was a strong outpouring of conservative dislike for the flawed legislation, which did little, if anything to correct the problems. I believe it will be far better to NOT have a vote on this awful legislation – and instead let the voters speak with their telephones and pens during the midterm elections on Tuesday, November 4. I’m predicting a Republican landslide in both the House and Senate as the voters express their disgust for how the Obama administration has mishandled immigration.

    • Raylusk

      Well just like in 2012 prepared to be disappointed. This is the problem with you conservatives, you are clustered together so you don’t have a clue what the rest of the country really wants. We want republicans and democrats to work together to solve big issues including immigration. When Boehner appointed only republicans to the working group to draft legislation to deal with the child migrant issue he clearly showed he had no interest in a bipartisan solution. If he did he would have appointed an equal number of republicans and democrats to the group. Now this is what you get. Nothing gets solved and Boehner tries to save a little of his pride by blaming Obama. Well guess what, Obama has almost three times the approval rating Congress has so it isn’t going to work. So good luck with your prediction just don’t start crying when it doesn’t come true.

      • jetch

        it’s you who will be needing luck ray, if you’re delusional enough to think things are going the democrats way for this next election. no one predicted a landslide in 2012. everyone except you is predicting one in 2012.
        funny how you harp on Boehner, but say *nothing* of reid and Pelosi. two of the *worst* partisan hacks that have ever disgraced congress!
        you are seriously misinformed when you say conservatives are “clustered together”. have you ever seen a political demographic map of the us?? ever??? conservatives are spread out throughout the entire united states. it’s the democrats that are concentrated in urban cities.

        • http://www.clickandconnectclubs.com/ ClicknConnect Clubs

          Bingo!! Boy are you accurate!

          • Raylusk

            Yeah they have created an economy that produces more wealth then all the red states combined. Shows how failed conservative policies are.

        • Raylusk

          Everyone predicted a landslide in 2012. Quit with the revisionist history. It’s really pathetic.

      • Eileen Wright

        Half of the country does not want illegals coming in and us paying for everything……Harry Reid does the exact same thing in the senate. There are over 300 bills that the house has sent to the senate and Reid refuses to bring up. There are NEVER equal number of Dems and R’s on ANY committee, ever. Whoever holds the senate or house, holds the majority on all committees. It is Obama’s fault. He invited these people here through his unconstitutional use of executive orders.

        • Raylusk

          And another lying piece of crap.

        You dumb OBAMA LEMMING ZOMBIE!!!

  • DH Vann

    Republicans are sheer idiots!! Period–end of story!!

    • PFPorlock

      Would that be the Republicans who proposed the bill, or the ones who opposed it?

      • disqus_glB3YKQ95H

        Most likely, the Republicans who proposed the bill.

      • OmahaCitizen

        Aren’t they the same people?

  • http://www.clickandconnectclubs.com/ ClicknConnect Clubs

    No means NO! Money has already been distributed. Feed them and then send them all HOME – IMMEDIATELY!

    ATTN ALL SHERIFFS, GOVERNORS & MAYORS: Since you can’t “detain” ILLEGALS – What and who can stop you from sending them on a “PAID VACATION” back home – on your own behalf?

    Since ILLEGALS won’t show up to court anyway…no one will know that you “mysteriously” sent them back home…WHO COULD TRACE IT?

    And, who would prosecute it? NO ONE. JUST FLY THEM ALL BACK HOME.

    No one will ever know. And, if they do….what can they do about it? NOTHING,
    that’s what! (Let them try and see what happens…)

    Let the ILLEGALS try to come back into the country and to court on their OWN
    DIME – and, when they don’t show up….oh well.

    Come on now….didn’t you ever watch that OUTER LIMITS show….where they
    advertise a FIRST CLASS PLANE RIDE – eh? Only difference here is, (no one is going to eat them) instead, they are ALL going SAFELY back HOME!

    No one seems to be able to stop this “prez” from VIOLATING OUR CONSTITUTION!!

    It would take YEARS for this prez to start prosecuting ALL THE SHERIFFS GOVERNORS & MAYORS!

    HAHA

    TURN AROUND IS FAIR PLAY!

    No one is tracing how and when the prez is transferring these ILLEGALS to
    cities all across our nation…!! He’s doing it undercover….

    Two can play at that game!!

    LET ALL THE SHERRIFS & MAYORS DO EXACTLY THE SAME THING!

    Except a one way “PAID VACATION TRIP” ticket back home!

    Case closed!

    Isn’t this prez violating our laws?!

    YES HE IS!

    No one can stop these sheriffs and mayors from taking the illegals on a PAID
    VACATION TRIP BACK HOME!

    (Just remember – I thought of it first!)

    • Raylusk

      So you propose breaking the law. Take a hike.

      • redware

        Why not?Obamao does it all the time!

        • Raylusk

          Only in the conservative diseased mind.

          • http://www.clickandconnectclubs.com/ ClicknConnect Clubs

            Fantasy LaLa Land! I see that YOU swallowed the BLUE Pill!

            You cannot be “TOLD” what it is…You have to see it for yourself…

            So, do you want the Red pill or the Blue pill? Well, DO YOU?

          • Raylusk

            Quit posting the same crap over and over. It just shows what a lying nut job you are.

          • http://www.clickandconnectclubs.com/ ClicknConnect Clubs

            Just following your stupid crap…

          • jetch

            “diseased mind” do you realize how sick you sound? you’re talking about another human being that simply disagrees with you, politically. because they do so, you consider them “diseased”??? wow!

          • Raylusk

            No they have a diseased mind because they keep repeating the same lies over and over. If you don’t like my comments don’t read them. It’s really not that hard.

          • jetch

            repeating the same lies, says you. do you totally lack any self awareness to understand that?? who are you to determine what’s a lie and what isn’t? maybe, just maybe you’re the one whose been regurgitating lies.
            just to be clear. you’re right and anyone who disagrees is wrong and “diseased”. in addition, if you don’t like someone’s comment, you will respond with name calling, but if someone doesn’t like your comments, they should “not read them”. you’re a piece of work…

          • Raylusk

            Like I said don’t read my comments if you don’t like them. I’m not making you read them you are choosing to do so. Pretty pathetic of you.

          • RUFUS LEVIN

            give it a break you mental eunoch.

      • http://www.clickandconnectclubs.com/ ClicknConnect Clubs

        First of all, IT’S NOT BREAKING THE LAW!!

        OBAMINATION IS BREAKING THE LAW!!!

      • ggm281

        I thought ignoring the law was what all of this was about in the first place. Pretty sure that now we just look at laws a general guidelines to use or discard at our whim!

        • Raylusk

          Really? Even Boehner has admitted that the 2008 law is what is driving the current crisis. So how about you quit with the lying rhetoric that this is about ignoring the law.

      • RUFUS LEVIN

        breaking the law is what the POTUS is doing. Not enforcing the law is what the Atty General is doing. What most of us are doing is paying exhorbitant taxes for an out of control Federal govt spending the nation into extinction.

        • Raylusk

          I bet you are paying less taxes today then you were ten years ago. Quit crying for a change.

  • Elric

    DUH! They could at least have voted to ENFORCE THE LAWS WE ALREADY HAVE.

    • Raylusk

      They are being enforced.

      • jetch

        are you getting paid to defend Obama, or are you in such awe of him you do it out of pure devotion???
        idol worship is a sickness, clearly you need help… at the very least, take a few days off from your “defend Obama” job and go outside and get some sunshine and maybe some perspective. maybe apply for some real jobs while you’re out there…

        • Raylusk

          Are you getting paid for being a tea party traitor to America?

          • jetch

            so now if someone disagrees with you, they’re a traitor to America… hitler would have loved you!

          • Raylusk

            No you are a traitor because you follow the tea party and the tea party preaches no compromise. That is not American. So take your Hitler comments and shove them since they are the last refuge of someone that has sunk so low there is no saving them.

  • FormerEYstud

    Once again, its nothing but comedy hour in the House GOP

  • DrGeneNelson

    There were three rounds of forced repatriation in the 20th century in response to middle-class concerns about access to employment. The first wave followed bloody, lethal riots during the Great Depression. The second wave was after WWII, and the third wave was after the Korean War. Given the shenanigans of the political elites on both sides and the unprecedented “lobbying” – er, “campaign finance contributions, (er, bribes) a fourth wave is long overdue. However, I recognize it would be far more humane to turn off the jobs and benefit magnets by finally implementing the enforcement provisions of the 1986 immigration amnesty – namely, enhanced E-Verify for all employers over a 3 year period. That would give illegals a 3 year window to close out their affairs and self-deport. The result would be a tighter labor market and increased middle-class wages, just like after the 3 rounds of forced repatriation during the 20th century.

    • freeinaz

      The Chamber of Commerce would never go with anything other than amnesty. They are determined to get cheaper labor and ruin the middle class.

      • redware

        And the GOP is so stupid that they will support the Chamber over the people whose votes they actually need!

      • jetch

        true, but they’ll be in for a sad surprise when the democrats demand a $15 an hour minimum wage. imagine that, $15 an hour to pick tomatoes…
        the problem with the leftist philosophy is that they will promise everything to everyone, regardless if some of their promises conflict with the ideologies of others within their group.

      • ggm281

        Actually that is ridiculous. Chamber businesses who use illegal labor pay them cash so they can avoid the 7.4% FICA and the 2.4% UI/workman’s comp. They want illegal labor, not amnestied labor. If amnesty is granted, the Chamber will go back to breaking the new immigration system so they can have access to new illegal immigrants who don’t expect labor laws to be followed.

        • RUFUS LEVIN

          unions want new members

          • ggm281

            That is true, and they are working hard to support amnesty for their members!

  • WZ

    I see the Obama defenders are out in force…so corrupted by their own sense of outraged morality that they can’t see the basic, fundamental need to follow the law.

    • ggm281

      I am as far from an Obama defender as you can get. I’m just a Texas resident who cannot afford another series of property tax increases to pay to educate the children of illegal immigrants. I need them to go home. This bill provided for bringing some recently retired immigration judges back to speed up the wait time for a hearing. Because the Obama administration is not going to stop the hearings no matter what you wish. So now these Central Americans with their 8th grade educations are going to live in the US for 4 years waiting for their hearing. But when that date comes, they will have 3 “American citizens” they have given birth to (and another on the way). Because the only way they can survive with their limited skills is to farm children for benefits. And when that hearing comes, they will be allowed to remain in the country to raise their children. AND I WILL PAY FOR YOUR IDIOCY!!

      • WZ

        That’s a nice theory you’ve used to justify irrational personal attacks, but I’m going to reply to you in the spirit of information. Obama is in collusion with the permanent bureaucracy of immigration judges to habitually reject deportation cases. In some cases, judges considered “too harsh” on illegal immigrants have been re-assigned and replaced. In other words, the extra funding would’ve SPED UP the legalization you so greatly fear. And no, you’re not the only one paying. I, too, live in Texas and run my own business. Obama has promised far too many lies to be trusted with more money. We know where it will go. It’s as plain as day.

        • Raylusk

          It’s only plain as day in the diseased mind of a RWNJ like you.

          • WZ

            I can think of nothing more frightening than an entire country filled with people who think and talk like you do. You believe you know so much about the world, huh? I’m a RWNJ? That’s laughable. I’m a Middle-Eastern American. You’re so religiously certain that I’m wrong and you’re right. You know enough about people and how the world works to fling your insults and invectives. By all means, continue on in this fashion. See the kind of world it wins for you.

          • Raylusk

            Doesn’t matter where you came from when you tell obvious lies. Quit telling lies then we can have a civil discussion. Until then take a hike.

          • WZ

            Let’s see. The very first thing you appeal to is emotion. And the last thing you appeal to is emotion. In between, you employ slander and insult. No, Raylusk, you’re the liar, trying to mask your dishonesty through a shallow public display of bluster and hot air…through force of rhetoric, not reason of mind or even aspiration to truth. As my original comment states, you’re one of those corrupted by your own self-righteousness. You’re a good fanatic for your cause. Just be warned, Raylusk, lies have a way of defining the liar in far more layers of life than you can imagine.

          • Raylusk

            No WZ your original comment was all completely lies. Everyone else can see that. You should to. Now I’m done with you and your lies. Take a hike.

          • jetch

            clearly it’s “plain as day” in your diseased LWNJ mind.

          • RUFUS LEVIN

            all you have is childish insults?

          • Raylusk

            Well when you are talking to childish people like you who think ideology substitutes for facts and the truth then there isn’t much else left.

        • ggm281

          I apologize. And what you say about the leniency of the immigration judges compared to even just 5 years ago is true. But the public opinion has shifted AGAINST Obama’s handling of immigration. People don’t want them to allow these new arrivals to stay. They want them on planes ASAP. This was the opportunity to send these people home and show all those planning their trek in Sept., that there was no point in borrowing $6000 to pay the coyote. Even the President would have ignored the pressure to “halt deportations and quit separating families” on this one.
          But now he is going to come back from vacation. He is going to announce that since the GOP led House can do nothing he MUST act. He is going to give an administrative amnesty with a fair amount of the population agreeing that the GOP failed to act. More Central Americans are going to be certain that they can come and stay and even if they don’t get this amnesty, they’ll get the next one. It will make it far worse in Texas as a HUGE percentage of these people never leave the state.
          I don’t know about you, but I cannot afford another $1500 property tax hike next year too. My taxes have tripled in just the 15 years we’ve lived here. Our home was valued at 142% of market a couple of years where there were no comps to use to dispute it. Our income isn’t going up but college tuition and rentals in Austin are.
          This “compassion” has to stop!!

          • WZ

            Yeah, I’m in the same boat. And thank you so much for talking to me like I’m a human. I very much appreciate it. Yes, I see your point also. The truth is, we can game things out only so far. And I can honestly see how events might turn out the way you’ve projected.

          • WZ

            Just an article you might find interesting about the defeated bill. The situation is still “fluid” though. Some kind of bill may still pass. This is the reason why *usually* a kneejerk “No” to rushed bills is a good idea, no matter how high the emotions. Not always, but often mischief tries to sneak in.

            http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/31/dead-gop-bill-tried-to-sneak-immigration-boost/

          • ggm281

            I think this whole thing was “mischief” and manipulation. And from conversations with interns that the DREAMER organization uses to “shape public opinion” by having them comment on articles about immigration, it is apparent they were the ones who encouraged media in Central America to tell the public that children could stay in the US. They seemed to be under the delusion that it would force the GOP to pass “reform” because then deportations could start again. Obviously they are college aged and too stupid too understand how the public would react to a flood of new illegal immigrants.
            And oddly Ted Cruz and Harry Reid seemed to be on the same page with the fear mongering. DC is beyond dysfunctional, but the public is looking for someone to be grownups. And had the GOP been the grownups and the Democrats then deployed tricks, they would have paid for that in Nov. It is too close to elections for people to forget why they’re mad!
            Instead the GOP just looks indecisive and ineffective.

        • Sam Sobriquet

          ONE judge. That’s it? You talk about “judges” and “instances”, plural. Where are the rest? Where does the Obama collusion stuff come in? They didn’t say anything about that in the article you linked to.

          These kids are on the border and if they are from Central America, they will stay here until they get a hearing. No money just means they will stay here longer. According to you, legalization is going to happen no matter what, because Obama, or whatever. The smart thing, if you’re so convinced that is the case, is to get them off of total gov. support ASAP, which won’t happen until they have a hearing. If you don’t beef up the bureaucracy to handle the overload with some $$$$$ it’s just going to take longer.

      • RUFUS LEVIN

        then do not hire them as housekeepers and yard boys. do not buy from businesses that employ them…do not use them for painters, handymen, landscapers, etc. Stop them by not buying their services.

        • ggm281

          Do all those things already. And it isn’t easy in Texas.

    • Raylusk

      In the child migrant cases the law is being followed. This bill was to address the issues of child migrants. So what part of the child migrant law isn’t being followed? And don’t spin off on some other rant stick to the subject.

      • ggm281

        No actually this bill was to provide funding for a system OVERRUN by Central Americans of ALL ages. The “children” is just a small part of the problem. But of course it is the only part we talk about because they make such useful tools.

        • Raylusk

          No actually you are clueless. 52,000 Central American children need to be processed based on current law. This bill would have provided funds to do so and changed current law to allow future Central American children to be turned away at the border. You are typical of conservatives today. A no nothing idiot who thinks just because he or she believes in an ideology that they can make up any fact they want to support their ideology. This is why conservatives now have an approval rating that is 10% less then liberals.

      • RUFUS LEVIN

        these are NOT MIGRANTS…they are illegal alien border crashers breaking the law.

        • Raylusk

          Call them what you want. But the fact is that Obama is in fact following the law when it comes to these children. But I can tell by your response that you are only the law and order type when the law strictly conforms to your narrow ideological view. You are what is wrong with this country. Now take a hike little man with a little mind.

            2012: By Michael O’Brien, msnbc.com

            Updated 4:18 p.m. ET – The Obama administration announced on Friday that it would no longer seek the deportation of most young illegal immigrants, and would instead allow them to apply for work permits, a significant policy shift with potentially major electoral implications.

            The Department of Homeland Security said that, effective immediately, the government would no longer seek the deportation of illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, and would allow them to apply for work permits if they meet certain criteria.”

  • skip1

    We could have written this headline 2 months ago “House fails to do anything, Obama to blame”. I mean, blaming Obama is all they have left. Sad.

    • freeinaz

      It’s pretty hard to work with a serial liar like Obama. I imagine most of the representatives in the house are under the assumption it doesn’t matter what is passed as Obama is untrustworthy whether he will enforce the law or just change it, like he has with ACA, to whatever he wants.

      • Raylusk

        He hasn’t done anything with the ACA that other Presidents haven’t don’t when implemented new laws. You idiots on the right need to quit with these bald face lies. It really is pathetic.

    It’s preposterous that the Central Americans are the poor fleeing gang violence – the poor couldn’t begin to pay the coyotes’ fees. It’s the middle class fleeing a real estate boom:

    ‘Where I work in Guatemala, remittances have inflated the price of land to astounding levels; most families are unable to buy property unless they can place at least one wage-earner in the U.S. So every family is under pressure to send someone north. Migrants must borrow at least $5,000 to pay human smugglers. Many pay 10% monthly interest and put up family land as collateral. So they’re betting the farm. When something goes wrong, they lose it.

    Migration on these terms is not a solution to the problems facing Central Americans. Because jobs in the U.S. are scarce, and living costs are so high compared with Central America, even legal migration can beggar them.’

    The violent international gangs that control people smuggling are a product of immigration from Central America to the US, and the necessary deportation of gang felons back, who integrated with local gangs. This is the globalization that MSM, which stands for ‘Immigration Infomercial,’ has been selling us for decades. Many of these children and teenage boys undoubtedly have gang connections, or will acquire them if they can’t pay off the balance of their smuggling fee otherwise. Let’s not train them to be full-fledged gang bangers on our streets.

    http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/60803/ana-arana/how-the-street-gangs-took-central-america

    ‘…the maras [gangs] function as surrogate families — albeit ultraviolent ones — for their members. Often recruiting children as young as nine, the gangs initiate their members with beatings: three older members will punch and kick a recruit nonstop for 13 seconds. Once they recover, the new junior gang members engage in robbery or petty crime or serve as lookouts for older members. Their more seasoned comrades, meanwhile, engage in drug dealing, burglaries, and contract killings. The maras’ members also act as foot soldiers for pre-existing drug-trafficking networks and for international car-theft rings and run sophisticated alien-smuggling operations.’

  • cat48

    So Boehner tells Obama, take the action on your own. You just sued him for that you drunk!

  • Bill__Kennedy

    This is from RollCall’s own reporter:

    ‘But the rate the coyotes charge is so high — nearly $6,500 per person — that parents can’t afford to go with a child, says Pedro Raymundo Cobo, the mayor of Nebaj [Guatemala]…What neither the mayor nor the priest mentions is that migration brings a huge economic benefit to governments, communities and families throughout Central America because of the money, or remittances, that immigrants send home once they find jobs in the United States.

    The impact is evident in areas such as Nebaj, where U.S. officials point out the larger, sturdier concrete houses that dot the region. Those are typically built with remittances the families have received, they note.’

            “President Barack Obama makes remarks about the Department of Homeland Security’s recent announcement about deportation of illegal immigrants in the Rose Garden at the White House June 15, 2012 in Washington, D.C.

            By Michael O’Brien, msnbc.com

            Updated 4:18 p.m. ET – The Obama administration announced on Friday that it would no longer seek the deportation of most young illegal immigrants, and would instead allow them to apply for work permits, a significant policy shift with potentially major electoral implications.

            The Department of Homeland Security said that, effective immediately, the government would no longer seek the deportation of illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, and would allow them to apply for work permits if they meet certain criteria.”

          • Raylusk

            As usual from a conservative they have no legitamite point to make. Again no laws broken the dreamer lawsuit was DISMISSED.

          • I. Bokonon

            It was dismissed for lack of jurisdiction, not on the merits of the case. On the
            merits, the Court ruled that “Plaintiffs are likely to succeed on the
            merits of their claim that the Directive and related provisions of the
            Morton Memorandum violate 8 U.S.C. § 1225(b)(2)(A).”

            Furthermore,
            the US Constitution is the highest law in the land. Any president that
            selectively enforces federal statutory law, as this president has done
            with respect to our immigration laws, is in violation of Article 2,
            Section 3 of the Constitution, which requires that he take care that the
            laws be faithfully executed. Therefore, the President most definitely is breaking the law.

    Chicago: a breeding ground for the Weather Underground and ILLEGALS, Per obama’s own words: Ms obama quits her law firm to become Chicago’s FOUNDING DIRECTOR OF “AMERICORP”!! (see attached obama Colorado speech IN HIS OWN WORDS!! FOR GOD SAKES – LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAYS!!: start at: 14:20)

    obama’s Quote (as he cuts USA Military): “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the National Security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a CIVILIAN NATIONAL SECURITY FORCE that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”

    (obama seeks $3.7 BILLION for funding the recent illegals – for what purpose?)

    OBAMA VOWS TO GROW AMERICORP TO 250 Thousand IN HIS SPEECH!!

    Why is obama’s PRIVATE ARMY written into the OBAMACARE BILL?! Follow the $500M (given to Ms obama’s “friends” for a website) & $3.7 BILLION obama is demanding for illegals and the $6B “misplaced” by the state department!! In the Colorado obama speech, obama stated that Ms obama had quit her law firm to become the “FOUNDING DIRECTOR FOR AMERICORP IN CHICAGO” – building OBAMA’S PRIVATE NATIONAL ARMY! Those were obama’s words – to double AmeriCorp to 250K.

    Rahm Emanuel was SENT TO CHICAGO IN 2010 TO BECOME the CHICAGO
    MAYOR and he discusses: “Universal Citizen Service” for Citizenship “It’s required of Everybody” and CHICAGO IS A SAFE HAVEN FOR ILLEGALS.

    DO YOU THINK THIS IS A COINCIDENCE??!!

    ACTORS PLEDGE: “I Pledge to be a SERVANT TO OUR PRESIDENT”

    A number of illegals have been shipped to 3 MILITARY BASES…DO THE MATH – and see the picture of illegal men being separated and “eyed” by men in military garb. They need to build an army who will listen to THEM and carry out orders for hire.

    Is Obama Looking to Create a Civilian National Security Force?

    Published on Feb 8, 2013

    The Department of Homeland Security purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in just the past 10-months. The military used approximately 70-million rounds in each year of the Iraq war. Could it be that DHS is looking to arm a new civilian national security force? YES….listen to “COLORADO” STATE POLICE TURNED DHS: http://youtu.be/Ig7AOv_bVjM

      But the sad truth is, they don’t WANT to solve the problem, and they don’t want to secure the border.

    June 15, 2012

    The Obama administration announced on Friday that it would no longer seek the deportation of most young illegal immigrants, and would instead allow them to apply for work permits, a significant policy shift with potentially major electoral implications.

    The Department of Homeland Security said that, effective immediately, the government would no longer seek the deportation of illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, and would allow them to apply for work permits if they meet certain criteria.

    The decision was intended to make America’s immigration system “more fair, more efficient and more just,” President Barack Obama said in an afternoon statement in the Rose Garden.

    “They were brought to this country by their parents,
    sometimes even as infants, and oftentimes had no idea they were undocumented until they applied for a job,” the president said. “They are Americans in their hearts, in their minds … in every single way but one: on paper.”
