Amnesty In"JUNK"tion

By Douglas V. Gibbs

As the United States Senate cowardly refuses to accept the House of Representative's DHS bill, and sends back a "clean" DHS bill to the House with funding in it for Obama's unconstitutional amnesty by executive fiat, the courts have also jumped into the mess and has blocked implementation of President Obama's executive amnesty for illegal aliens.  The Department of Justice, arguing on behalf of the White House, proclaimed that the ability to protect national security would be "irreparably harmed" if the injunction is not lifted.

United States District Court Judge Andrew Hanen's injunction against Obama's Deferred Action for Parental Accountability program were filed with Hanen who, experts say, is unlikely to issue a stay of his own injunction.  Hanen's decision could be appealed to the 5th Circuit Court.

When asked how the government would suffer irreparable harm from a stay blocking Obama's amnesty program, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said, "To put it bluntly, the Department of Homeland Security was ready last week to begin taking the steps that would bring millions of people out of the shadows. These are individuals who have been in this country for a substantial period of time and have family connections inside the country. These are individuals who would begin paying taxes. These are individuals who would submit to a background check. So every day that goes by we have individuals who will continue to be in the shadows, who will continue to not pay taxes, and who will continue to not have undergone a background check which means that they could pose a threat to public safety."

The sudden national security threat posed by illegals hiding from law enforcement is a surprising change of development.  We have been told these people came to the country seeking a better life, and pose no threat, yet now not doing a background check on them poses a big threat.  Should we then ask, "If they are such a national security threat, why did we let them in the country in the first place?"

What about the ones that won't "come out of the shadows" for a background check?  Will they suddenly not be a threat?

As for the taxes, the need for their "revenue" wouldn't be a concern if our government did not waste billions of dollars on unconstitutional spending.

The Department of Justice has filed a parallel motion with the 5th Circuit Court to appeal Hanen's injunction, of which surprises me, since President Obama believes he is above the law, and does not need to lower himself to following any of the processes in our system demanded by the rule of law.
