In an interview published Friday, Illinois Democrat congressman Luis Gutierrez expressed his desire to see President Obama unilaterally stop all deportations of illegal immigrants should Congress fail to pass comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty.
From The Hill:
President Obama "has the responsibility" to stop deportations of illegal immigrants if Congress proves unable to pass a comprehensive immigration bill, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) argued in an interview published Friday.
"There are devastating effects if the Congress of the United States cannot enact comprehensive immigration reform – then the president of the United States has the responsibility to act to defend those immigrants which he says he wants to provide safety and justice for," Gutierrez told Salon.
Gutierrez said the president should "definitely look at" expanding that policy(deferred deportation for illegal immigrant youths) to all 11 million immigrants who have entered the country illegally, if efforts to reform the nation's laws remain stymied in the Republican-controlled House.
"I think that those who call on the President of the United States to re-evaluate his actions on the dreamers and expand it — I think that’s something the President of the United States should definitely look at, and begin to evaluate how he brings that about," he said. "I think he should think about that."
Basically want congressman Gutierrez wants is for President Obama to ignore the law, violate the Constitution, and act like a tin horned dictator in order to allow people who have broken our nations immigration laws to remain here so that they can continue to wave a middle finger to the rule of law.
If President Obama does what congressman Gutierrez wants he should and must be impeached.
