List Of Obama Administrative Amnesty Actions Long And Getting Longer

Tom Shuford’s letter tonight  mentions an itemized list of Obama’s deliberate refusal to enforce the immigration laws, and his administration’s attacks on State government that want to enforce the law. You can see the whole thing here: Sessions Updates Catalogue Of Obama Administration Immigration Non-Enforcement, Breitbart, May 16, 2014.” Or you can  see it in PDF, from Session’s office. It’s 17 pages, though, so I thought I’d just pull out the headlines so you could take a quick look…and it’s still almost 850 words, and about 79 items.

That’s not the fault of anyone writing the document, it’s the fault of Obama and his underlings, who are engaged in misfeasance, malfeasance, and non-feasance on an unprecedented scale. When I asked in Luis Gutierrez Admits Legal Amnesty Hopeless, Eggs On Obama To Even More Impeachable Actions–Will GOP Respond? if Boehner and Co would respond to a total halt to immigration law enforcement with impeachment, you have to wonder why they haven’t already.
