Yet another idiotic Obama policy that is a complete and utter failure.
The federal government said the number of undocumented immigrants failing to appear at deportation hearings is on the rise.
You should agree with this:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott added: "President Obama abdicated his responsibility to uphold the United States Constitution when he attempted to circumvent the laws passed by Congress via executive fiat, and Judge Hanen's decision rightly stops
the president's overreach in its tracks."
But the point is, IT'S BEEN BLOCKED.
There is no cause and affect here.
And all Obama is doing is what Reagan/Bush did in 1989.
“There was no political explosion then comparable to the one Republicans are threatening now,” the AP’s Andrew Taylor wrote.
In 1989, the U.S. Senate approved a bill to expand legal status to unauthorized immigrant families. But after the House refused to consider the proposal, Bush used the Immigration and Naturalization Service to establish a “family fairness” policy that mimicked the Senate plan.
“It’s a striking parallel,” Mark Noferi of the pro-immigration American Immigration Council told the AP. “Bush Sr. went big at the time. He protected about 40 percent of the unauthorized population. Back then that was up to 1.5 million. Today that would be about 5 million.”
Obama has offered Republicans a way that would persuade him not to take unilateral executive action on immigration. “Give me a bill that addresses those issues,” he said. “I’ll be the first one to sign it and, metaphorically, I’ll crumple up whatever executive actions that we take and we’ll toss them in the wastebasket.”http://www.allgov.com/news/top-stories/reagan-and-bush-sr-gave-amnesty-to-immigrants-without-going-through-congress-so-whats-wrong-with-obama-doing-the-same-141118?news=854853
