Say, Did Obama Actually Sign Immigration Executive Order?
I’ve had this article by Jerome Corsi sitting in the Pocket folder for a few days now, which asks an interesting question
(WND) Did President Obama just set up Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to be a candidate for impeachment instead of himself if conservatives convince the Republican majorities in the House and the Senate that his “executive actions” on immigration are unconstitutional?
The inquiry begins with the question: Where are the executive orders Obama supposedly signed to permit up to 5 million parents of young illegal aliens to remain in the United States for three years?
The White House appears to have engaged in administrative sleight of hand, changing U.S. immigration law not by executive order but by a memorandum “exercising prosecutorial discretion” Johnson signed the day of Obama’s Nov. 20 nationwide address that so far has not been filed in the Federal Register.
So, um, where, exactly, is the order? Was this not part of Obama’s executive action? Was there not supposed to be an order from Obama? Corsi follows up
It’s common knowledge President Obama signed an executive order directing the Department of Homeland Security to forgive millions of illegal aliens for their past violations of immigration law, right?
Today the National Archives and Records Administration, responsible for such maintaining such filings, said no such executive order was ever signed or filed, confirming WND’s report Wednesday.
A National Archives librarian, Jeffrey Hartley, made the confirmation in an email Thursday to WND.
“As I indicated, it would appear that there is not an Executive Order stemming from the President’s remarks on November 20 on immigration,” Hartley wrote.
Hartley said that neither of the executive orders Obama signed in Las Vegas the day after his announcement fulfill his plan to defer deportations and grant work permits to up to 5 million illegal aliens.
DHS head Jeh Johnson has no legal nor Constitutional authority to tell law enforcement officers to stop enforcing the law as duly passed by Congress. Not that Obama really does, either, but it seems that Obama hasn’t actually signed any orders to that effect, either. If he did, where are they?
BTW, here’s some more great illegal aliens.
- Stealing $7 million in phony tax returns.
- Convicted murderers caught in US illegally.
- Another beat a Chinese student to death.
- Here’s one who’s been deported 3 times, and killed two US citizens in a hit and run.
- A twice deported illegal with drug convictions killed a Place County Sheriff’s office investigator.
The list can go on and on and on.
