The attorneys general of 25 states blasted claims made by White House and Justice Department political-appointees President Barack Obama’s that the executive order -- that will let about 5 million illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. -- goes above and beyond judicial review by even the nation's highest courts. In addition, Americans for Immigration Control (AIC) in a press statement on Friday condemned Obama’s executive order giving de facto amnesty to almost one million illegal aliens, the children of illegal immigrant parents, and giving them work permits.
“The president’s arbitrary order violates the U.S. Constitution by usurping the congressional authority of the U.S. Congress to either grant, or not grant, amnesty to those who are in violation of our nation’s laws,” said AIC's Phil Kent. “This type of policy will act as a magnet that will further foster illegal immigration, especially the smuggling in of children. The next demand from the open borders lobby, now that these people have legal status, will be demands to give them citizenship and voting rights.”
“Furthermore, how can the president justify allowing these illegal immigrants to work in the United States when millions of American remain unemployed or who have stopped looking for work?” Kent said. “Obama has put partisan politics and illegal immigrants ahead of the rule of law and the American people.”
The top law enforcement officials from the 25 states are attempting to stop the order until their petition to overturn Obama's arbitrary policy is decided in a federal courtroom in Brownsville, Texas. Department of Homeland Security officials are scheduled to begin accepting applications from illegal aliens who wish to avoid deportation and apply for work permits. They are also being given federal benefits, such as Social Security and Medicare.
Opponents say that there is no foolproof method for detecting fraud especially for those claiming Social Security benefits and Medicare medical insurance. "We're told in one breath that these people are 'undocumented workers' and in the next breath we're being told by the very same people they will take steps to avoid fraud. How will that be done?" asked Capt. Edward Walsh, a police squad commander.
Minions in the Obama administration are claiming the immigration policy is "unchallengeable by any plaintiff, and reviewable by no court, and subject to no public input," lawyers for the coalition of states alleged in their 88-page filing. "This court should respond likewise," the states said. "Only the courts can prevent the executive’s self-aggrandizement."
The attorneys representing the 25 states said that they have the legal right to challenge the Obama executive order because their taxpayers will have to pay "hundreds of millions of dollars on health, education and law-enforcement programs" for illegal aliens who are already causing financial hardships in a number of states. The judge has set a hearing in the matter for Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015.
Meanwhile, in Texas, reporters are claiming the information obtained regarding the so-called border surge of illegal aliens is "downright scary" after they had to fight with Obama's government officials for six months to have access to records. The news reports claim that Central American families caught crossing the border between July 18 and October 28 had to be released on their own recognizance (ROR) because they lacked enough detention space, according to officials who report to Attorney General Eric Holder. The illegal aliens were told their release would be permitted provided they agreed to appear, at a later date, before an immigration administrative judge. Only about four percent (4%) ever reported for their immigration court hearings.
