Obama Panders to Hispanics

Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano stated that the United States would give immunity from deportation for illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States before they turned 16 and who are younger than 30, among other criteria. The illegals can apply for a two-year work permit that can be renewed indefinitely. See the Christian Science Monitor piece.

The oath to be taken by the president on first entering office is specified in Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.

 

In order to pander to Hispanics, President Obama has broken this vow. He is a liar and a lawbreaker. It’s an election year, so he feels he is justified. He’s not. He has violated his oath of office and U.S. law. He should be prosecuted.
