Dem Rep.: Obama Has Legal Authority
for Executive Actions on Immigration

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/1/2014 11:18:49 AM

Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) appeared on Morning Joe Tuesday morning, castigating the House GOP for sabotaging immigration reform and arguing that President Barack Obama has the legal authority to effect limited reforms via executive action. “If [Republicans] want to come back and discuss this, fine,” Gutierrez said. “But in the interim period, I believe the President of the United States has, already in statute, in the law, the ability to heal and put in a safe harbor millions of undocumented immigrants while the Congress of the United States finally decides that it’s going to take action.” Gutierrez specified the ability

This guy just oozes contempt and oiliness. What else would you expect from a Chicago Democrat who is a member of the "progressive" (Communist) caucus?

What would happen if Boehner NEVER did a recess for the rest of Obama´s term? House members could take turns being on the floor, even if one is there, there is no recess, right?
Last week, the Supremes voted 9-0 that only Congress can decide when it is on recess..no recess, no recess appointments, no Executive Orders, right?

So, the president has a solution? And he has statute, and law on his side? Then use it.

Why do Democrats want to support and condone illegal immigration?
They want an aggrieved group, that´s why.

The white liberal democrat establishment uses Mr. Gutierrez as the mouthpiece, but don´t be fooled he has no real authority.

Republicans simply should state, we support enforcing our laws, controlling our border, and LEGAL immigration process.

This would contrast to the liberal democrat establishments no enforcement, don´t control the border and encouraging illegal immigration.

Gutierrez is another Chicago gangster, not unlike Obama.

Gutierrez represents one of the most gerrymandered districts in the nation, the 4th is the infamous "headphones" shaped district.

What´s noteworthy is that each election cycle Luis easily wins with 75-80% of the vote yet he always seems to total 80-90 thousand fewer voters than the Democrats in adjacent congressional districts who also win with 80% of the vote. In other words, he´s the Congressman from the district that doesn´t vote.

No he doesn´t. He can try and I am sure a man with the last name of Gutierrez would support such an attempt.

I think this man should open his home to some of the people he is so willing for the US Citizenry to support. Never mind that they don´t have proper inoculations, can´t read or write, need education on the use of hygiene facilities, ahem!, or the total social habits and cultures of this country.
He wants everyone else to pick up the responsibility. We´re 17 trillion in Debt!
Those who voted for him should ask him this direct question.

All the time Obama has been in office he could deploy border agents where ever he wanted.
Up until the border patrol UNION complained about all the sickness their members were getting from the children, Obama picked far inland away from any borders.
Now, the UNION has forced him to readjust on this.
Big deal.
It only proves Obama didn´t ever want to ´´secure the border,´´ until his own UNION forced him to.... a little.

Gutierrez is about as brilliant as that mule Durbin who says Obama can "borrow the authority" to do what he wants. Don´t recall any borrowing authority given to the Executive branch by the Constitution. As to Gutierrez, Obama can say all he wants, but legally he can do nothing that requires funds that have not been allocated by the Congress. But then hey, why should that stop this affirmative action president

Gutierrez is salivating at the opportunity for Mexicans and Central Americans to reconquer the Southwest without firing a shot. All that is needed is slime ball progressives like Gutierrez, and "I´m gonna teach America a lesson it will never forget"-Obama. Dinesh D´Souza was absolutely right in his analysis of Obama which is why Obama is persecuting him. Obama WANTS America to be overwhelmed by immigrants ( dependents on government ) so that it loses its exceptionalism and looks like European socialism. And STUPID Americans are letting it all happen ... maybe they deserve what is happening!

ICE, Border Patrol, Homeland Security, and Immigration Court all report to the President. He absolutely has executive responsibility. So why hasn´t the processing time for immigration gone down? Why is the backlog at Immigration Court over a year? Why aren´t felons who have served years in prison picked up at the prison gate and immediately deported?

The number of foreign-born individuals holding jobs in the United States hit a recorded high of 24,639,000 in August, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS has been tracking the number of foreign-born workers annually since 2005 and monthly since 2007. The BLS does not distinguish between foreign-born individuals who are in the United States legally and those who are here illegally. “The foreign born are those who reside in the United States but who were born outside the country or one of its outlying areas to parents who were not U.S. citizens,” the BLS explains. “The

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - Amir Meshal has a fascinating history. He´s originally from New Jersey, but back in 2007 he was detained and interrogated by the FBI in Kenya after escaping from Somalia. Somehow, his travels brought him to Minnesota, and to a mosque in Bloomington, which kicked him out this summer. Friday prayers bring hundreds to the Al-Farooq Youth and Family Center, which is perhaps the largest mosque in the Twin Cities. But not everyone is welcome -- not after Meshal began attending prayer and hanging out earlier this year. In June, the center called police and had Meshal, 31,

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

Two former Obama cabinet officials have declined to testify before the House Oversight Committee in its probe of the White House political office. The news came late Friday in an angry statement from Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who blasted the officials for [shrinking] "from an examination of the facts." "The White House´s efforts to reconfigure its political office does not inoculate it from oversight of any prior wrongdoing or efforts to rectify these legal violations," Issa said. Issa sought out former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis last month because both were accused of violating

In the face of a White House backtrack on executive amnesty, National Council of La Raza spokeswoman Janet Murguia pressed President Obama to “fulfill his promise” to approximately six million illegal immigrants, declaring that “we’re done waiting.” Murguia spoke with MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart on Friday about Obama’s attempt to give Senate Democrats cover by putting off a promised amnesty for illegal immigrants until after the 2014 election. The White House has said for months that action would come by the end of the summer. “We, as a community, expect him to fulfill his promises,” she said. “The president, in March,

During Thursday night´s California gubernatorial debate against Republican Neel Kashkari, California Governor Jerry Brown (D) revealed that nearly 30% of the state´s schoolchildren are either illegal immigrants or do not speak English. Brown, who recently said that illegal immigrants from Mexico were "all welcome in California," praised his administration´s immigration policies.

When pressed about the staggering increases in regulatory burden under his administration, President Obama says not to worry because the benefits exceed the costs. But a new and revealing set of charts from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce highlights the shameless deception used to calculate the bulk of these purported benefits. In Charting Federal Costs and Benefits, Chamber researchers analyzed the benefits calculations of the Environmental Protection Agency, which is responsible for the largest portion of the most costly regulations in recent years. What they found obliterates the president’s claims that sky-high regulatory costs are justified.

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position.
