Maybe It's Time to Start Issuing Arrest Warrants
Why does Congress allow Government Officials to ignore federal law and the Constitution they vow to uphold?Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress exclusive authority to establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization. The Supreme Court, in Immigration and Naturalization Service v. Chadha, clearly stated that the plenary authority of Congress over aliens under Art. I, is not open to question. This determination was reiterated in Arizona v. United States,when the Court held that Congress could trump state laws dealing with illegal aliens through the preemption doctrine but competing executive branch enforcement priorities could not.
The President's constitutional duty to enforce the laws derives from Art. II, sec. 3, which states that the President shall take Care that the laws be faithfully executed. This is imperative language: It instructs that the President shall take Care; not take Care if he feels like it. His duty is to execute the laws not some of the laws, not just the ones the President likes, but all of the laws. And he has to execute those laws.

Which brings us to the two people pictured above, both involved in the lawless sanctuary jurisdiction actions and lack of enforcement of law.
Ever wonder why such sensitive domestic policy cabinet post such as Department of Justice (Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch), Department of Labor (Secretary Thomas E. Perez), Department of Housing and Urban Development, (Secretary Julián Castro), Department of Homeland Security (Secretary Jeh Johnson), (Anthony Foxx ) Secretary of Transportation and the many directors and commissioners of departments like Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are filled with minorities with special interest group connections? Not to mention Supreme Court Justices with radical Hispanic sympathies, and LGBT activist past?
While the average American sleep walks through life, watching Dancing with the Stars or their favorite felon play ball on Sunday afternoon, Barack Obama has given over authority of much of domestic policy to his many minority appointees who share his views, many who refuse to let go of perceived past wrongs and now are now wheeling authoritarian powers where it counts. Anybody remember that guy, what's his name..... Eric Holder?
Giving just enough shady wiggle room for politicians to to twist out with voters back home, the lapdog media their talking points to cover for him, a lawless President proceeds to write his own laws and ignore the constitution at will while tearing down the nation to rebuilding it in his image.
The latest example:
My own Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) repeatedly pressed Sarah Saldaña, Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on why the Administration was taking no action against sanctuary jurisdictions that refuse to turn over dangerous criminal aliens from their prisons and jails to federal law officers while thumbing their nose at federal law:
Vitter: “This has been going on for years and you still are not prepared to say that there is ever going to be any negative consequence to those [sanctuary] jurisdictions. When is that going to change?”
Saldaña: “I presume when you all address comprehensive immigration reform; perhaps it can be addressed there.”Senator Vitter, once again: " Congress could trump state laws dealing with illegal aliens through the preemption doctrine but competing executive branch enforcement priorities could not.
Immigration Legislation has been written behind closed doors with handpicked special interest groups which put their political agendas and financial gains before sound and effective law and the welfare and safety of the American public. As illegals comment crimes all across the nation, a 1,200 page bill before the Senate will provide instant legalization and a path to citizenship to gang members and other dangerous criminal aliens, and handcuff ICE officers from enforcing immigration laws in the future.
Instead of debating about an unconstitutional act and demands by a lawless President who has opened up America and it's treasury to the third world and potential enemies who have declare to take us down, congress should exercise their power and demand enforcement of laws already in place and confirmed by the Supreme Court, or start issuing arrest warrants for Barack's appointed enemies of the state.
