The National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers is calling for a reversal of the Obama administration’s “autocratic” policy designed to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants without so much as approval from Congress, saying the President has shown "contempt" for the Constitution and the laws he is sworn to uphold.
Two weeks ago, President Obama ordered a massive review of 300,000 deportation cases of illegal aliens because they had either not broken any other laws while living in the country illegally or are considered “lesser offenders.” The first high-profile beneficiary of the policy has a familiar name: Obama.
Rank-and-file U.S. Border Patrol agents were furious with then-chief David Aguilar’s open support for “comprehensive immigration reform” and other controversial policies, footage obtained exclusively by Liberty News Network correspondent Andy Ramirez revealed (photo at left from video).
As states like Arizona and Alabama are passing laws in an attempt to maintain control over the overwhelming amount of illegal immigration into their states, the Obama administration continues to launch lawsuits against them and assert that it is solely the role of the federal government to enforce immigration laws. However, there is a great deal of evidence that the federal government has reneged on that role, the most recent proof coming out of the U.S. Department of Labor, which has confirmed that it will enforce federal wage laws on behalf of anyone working in the United States, “regardless of immigration status.”
A federal district judge has blocked Alabama’s tough new immigration law from going into effect and says she will decide whether it is constitutional.
Sharon Lovelace Blackburn, chief judge for the Northern District of Alabama (a post for which she was nominated by the elder President Bush), acted on behalf of a coalition of Hispanic activists and leftist lawyers from the American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the Obama administration, and various leftist churches.
