Obama simply won’t enforce any law

Regarding the letter, “Following the law, as set by Bush”: The Democrat beat continues. After six years in office Obama defenders and apologists still claim Bush is responsible for all wrongs. A bit old, don’t you think? Maybe President Obama will assume responsibility, any responsibility, between golf games, vacations and fundraising, for his actions and resulting consequences.

The law the reader refers to was not created by Bush. It was created by Congress, (Democrat controlled at the time). In those days, Congress created the laws and the president swore to enforce the laws of the United States. Yes, presidents do take an oath. “The law” was not intended to give citizenship in mass to millions of people by merely claiming amnesty. Suggesting otherwise is reading “the law” out of context, routinely done by the Obama regime, which does not enforce all laws; it interprets law as need be to fit political agenda.

We are now being told that borders will be ignored in total as the administration makes plans to fly Hondurans into the U.S.A. Why deal with phony borders and petty safeguards? Now Hondurans will be able to avoid all expense, chaos and terrors of a land trip let by “coyotes.” Violating multiple country’s borders will be a thing of the past courtesy of the Obama regime. Hondurans families are encouraged to apply for an all-expense paid amnesty air-trip to a sanctuary American city. Isn’t that nice? We could save the world’s poor. Currently Hondurans. Tomorrow, expect another country from Central America added to the acceptable list. All other would be immigrants from other countries that have something to offer, wait on line for years.

As a gentle afterthought, does a country maintain sovereignty absent borders? History says no. What do you say?
